The Human Rights Campaign just released an 18-minute tribute honoring the 49 victims of the massacre at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub. The clip, directed by Ryan Murphy and Ned Martel, tells the personal stories of those who lost their lives that tragic night.

“The hate that stole these 49 individuals from all those who loved them has been allowed to flourish in our country for too long,” Murphy said in a statement. “No person is born hating another, and we have an obligation as Americans to stand up against prejudice and bigotry that would incite violence against someone simply for who they are. I am proud to have joined with Ned Martel, my talented colleagues, and the Human Rights Campaign to honor these 49 heroes and stop the hate.”

Stop The Hate: 49 Celebrities Honor 49 Victims of Orlando Tragedy

For too long, a toxic combination of anti-LGBTQ hate and easy access to guns has put LGBTQ people at disproportionate risk of violence and murder. On June 12, forty-nine innocent people — most of them Latinx — were killed at Pulse nightclub in Orlando simply because of who they were. It’s on all of us to keep their memories alive, and to ensure part of their legacy becomes meaningful action to end hate violence. Join the Human Rights Campaign and urge your legislator to support legislation that will ensure LGBTQ people are safe and equal in every community and find out how to support the survivors and families of the Orlando victims.

The celebrities telling their stories are (in order of appearance) Lady Gaga, Chris Pine, Cuba Gooding Jr., Connie Britton, Matt Bomer, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Lea Michele, Colton Haynes, Sophia Bush, Jane Fonda, Harry Shum Jr., Denis O’Hare, Rob Reiner, Melissa Benoist, Caitlyn Jenner, Edgar Ramirez, Max Greenfield, Chaz Bono, Cheyenne Jackson, Emma Roberts, Kerry Washington, George Lopez, Evan Rachel Wood, Sofía Vergara, Diego Boneta, Nina Jacobson, Demi Lovato, Tyler Oakley, Yeardley Smith, Kid Cudi, Kaitlin Olson, Kevin McHale, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lee Daniels, Chace Crawford, Evan Peters, Gerard Butler, Katey Sagal, John Stamos, Laverne Cox, Jordana Brewster, Wes Bentley, Finn Wittrock, Darren Criss, Kathy Bates, Anna Paquin, Guillermo Díaz and Joe Mantello.

Check out the extremely moving clip below. It’s impossible not to get a little misty watching it.

Let Girls Learn is an initiative from Michelle Obama to give access to education to 62 million girls around the world who don’t have any. FLOTUS presented the song at the opening keynote address at SXSW Music in Austin earlier today.

This is For My Girls” was penned by Oscar-nominated songwriter Diane Warren and produced by AOL Makers. An all-star team was recruited for the empowering track. Zendaya, Kelly Rowland, Lea Michele, Kelly Clarkson, Janelle Monae, Jadagrace, Chloe & Halle and Missy Elliott joined forces for the movement.

Give it a listen below. It has an early 2000s R&B vibe. Think Amerie meets vintage Destiny’s Child.

scream-queens-season-2-cast

The most surprising survival from the first season of Scream Queens was the actual show itself. FOX renewed the black comedy for a second season despite lackluster ratings. It generated only 2.8 million viewers with a 1.1 rating. According to the network though, live watching only accounted for 30 percent of total viewership, with 26 percent catching up on DVR and 44 percent viewing via VOD and Hulu.

During the show’s PaleyFest panel on Saturday night, it was revealed who’s returning for the sophomore season. Pretty much, everyone who survived is returning, with one notable exception.

Skyler Samuels who played Grace Gardner didn’t attend the panel, nor was her name included in the Instagram video announcing that Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Keke Palmer, Abigail Breslin, Billie Lourd and Glen Powell all booked return gigs.

Executive producer Brad Falchuk revealed Season 2 will be set in a hospital, where some of the most fascinating and bizarre medical cases are under observation. Once again, a terrifyingly funny murder mystery will be at the center. Read below for their Season 2 character descriptions.

scream-queens-opening-credits

Most series today simply put up a title card as their opening credits and call it day. Lazy bitches 😉 Not to sound like a senior citizen, but I miss the days when elaborate opening sequences were the norm.

Ryan Murphy just shared the super-sized main title sequence for Scream Queens. I highly doubt the full version will air on the network, but I appreciate the effort. Not surprisingly, Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas aren’t included in the clip given that they’re only billed as guest stars.

Scream Queens debuts on FOX on September 22. Check out the bloody intro below where Emma Roberts, Lea Michele and company show off their screaming skills.

FOX Shares Scream Queens Cast Portraits

Ryan Murphy recently warned fans not to get too attached to anyone on Scream Queens. The producer revealed that only four characters will survive the first season of the highly-anticipated FOX series. My money is on Ariana Grande, Nick Jonas and Lea Michele all biting the dust.

FOX just unveiled character portraits for fifteen cast members. From Emma Roberts’ menacing Chanel Oberlin and all her Chanel minions to Jamie Lee Curtis, all your potential victims are on display. Check out the photos below and weigh in on who you think will escape death.

Scream Queens premieres on September 22 on FOX. By all accounts of those who’ve seen it, the pilot seems to be another winner for Murphy. Hopefully, he can maintain it throughout the season.

scream-queens-full-trailer

I believe I found my new greeting. Already, I greeted my friends with ‘hooker’ and now thanks to Ryan Murphy, I can call them idiots as well 😉

The first full official trailer for Scream Queens has finally arrived and it doesn’t disappoint. Regina George and the Plastics have nothing on Emma Robert’s uber bitchy character and her Heathers-like minions, The Chanels. Her sassy one-liners will make this horror-comedy hybrid must-watch television.

As if Hell Week wasn’t torture enough with all the hazing, the sorority is rocked when a devil-wearing killer commits a series of murders on campus. One poor pledge sadly meets her fate courtesy of a rogue lawnmower. LOL. Scream Queens will definitely be the watercooler show of the new season.

Roberts is joined by Jaime Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Oliver Hudson, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Skyler Samuels, Billie Lourd, Diego Boneta, Lucien Laviscount, Glen Powell and guest stars Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas. Speaking of the latter two, I predict they meet their maker early, given that they’re not featured heavily in the trailer. Check it out below.

When FOX presented at this year’s upfronts, Scream Queens was one show that didn’t have a trailer. A little odd, but I just assumed there wasn’t enough footage since they only recently began filming. Imagine my surprise and delight when the network dropped a new promo showing actual footage.

Most of the previous promos featured Emma Roberts in highly-stylized scenarios. This one titled “Pledges” shows the other cast members and a hint at the storyline. Roberts plays, not surprisingly, a ruthless sorority bitch while Michele ditches her Rachel Berry persona and shows up in an uncomfortable looking neck brace.

Check out the clip below which features several screaming queens. Not the college coed types but rather of the flaming variety 😉 Scream Queens will air on Tuesdays this Fall.
