Hey guys!

Today I am going to talk about someone who is all over my timeline. Meghan Markle.

Most people know who she is now because it was announced a couple days ago that she is getting married to Prince Harry.

Lisa Respers France, cnn.com, writes about the “unconventional bride-to-be”. “Sure, social media has been super excited that #blackgirlmagic is coming to the royal family in the form of Meghan Markle. But the biracial American actress is actually pretty magical in other ways, too. The 36-year-old seems to be more than fulfilling what fans want from a princess (even though she won’t become an official princess) in a fairytale royal romance: She’s smart, beautiful and passionate about humanitarian efforts around the world,” France writes.

Not only is she a soon to be royal but she is also one of the stars of the USA drama Suits.

Suits is about a guy named Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), who is on the run from  drug deal gone bad. He is a brilliant college drop-out who finds himself working for Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht), one of New York City’s best lawyers. (imdb.com)

Nellie Andreeva, deadline.com, spoke with the creator of Suits about their recent midseason finale. “He talked about the six remaining episodes from Season 7, which will culminate with a finale that will also serve as a backdoor pilot for a Chicago politics spinoff series focused on Gina Torres’ character Jessica Pearson. He teased the introduction in the flesh of a character Suits fans know by name, a wedding, a possible crashed wedding, and a young Louis Litt. Korsh also addresses the future of Suits, which is yet to be renewed for an eighth season, and of its cast whose contracts are up at the end of Season 7,” Andreeva writes.

I don’t know about you, but I have been wanting to get into Suits for awhile now. Maybe now is the time to do it.

Hey guys!

Today is all about Glee. I never watched the show, but one of its stars recently made headlines.

Maureen Lee Lanker ew.com, writes of the actresses transgression. “Former Glee actress Naya Rivera was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery following an alleged altercation with husband Ryan Dorsey on Saturday in West Virginia, the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to EW,” Lenker said.

Laura Beck, cosmopolitan.com , writes of another Glee star who is ready to be back on set. “‘[Glee] was just on the air, so everybody, like, cool it, but with that being said, I would do it tomorrow,” Lea said. “I loved playing Rachel Berry, I loved that cast, and it was so special, you know, what we did with bringing music into people’s homes and these characters that were so relatable, I loved it. I would do it in a heartbeat,'” Beck quoted Lea Michele.

Two completely different points of view from two stars of the same show. Wonder what will happen next.

Hey guys!

Today we are talking about one of my favorite Disney movies, The Lion King!

The cartoon version came out in 1994, with Matthew Broderick as the voice of Simba, along with other big names like Rowan Atkinson, Jeremy Irons, Whoopi Goldberg and James Earl Jones.

The movie had plenty going for it, especially for the young crowd it was intended for. It had not only cute animals, but cute, talking animals. It had great songs. It had nice visual representation. It is an all around great movie.

In this day and age, Disney has taken to making a live-action version of all it’s successful cartoons and it is now The Lion King’s turn.

Maureen Lee Lenker, ew.com, boosts the amazing cast for this new movie. “For every Disney prince there is a Disney princess (and vice versa), and who better to give voice to lionized royalty than Queen Bey? The singer will portray adult Nala, who goes looking for Simba in the wake of famine and destruction at Pride Rock and ends up drunk in love in the process,” Lenker said. Of course everyone is excited for Beyonce’s appearance, but there are also other note-worthy actors.

  • Donald Glover as Simba
  • Seth Rogen as Pumba
  • Billy Eichner as Timon
  • Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar
  • John Oliver as Zazu

Lastly, James Earl Jones will be reprising his role of Mufasa for this remake!

Just as one Lion King hits a milestone another is about to come to life. Do you want to see the new remake? Let me know in the comments.

Hey guys!

Today we are talking about the amazing, God of Thunder a.k.a Thor a.k.a. Chris Hemsworth.

Last Friday, November 3rd, the new installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe blew into theaters. Thor: Ragnarok, is about an imprisoned Thor who “finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization,” according to IMDB.

With this new movie brings a new villain, Hela (Cate Blanchett), the goddess of death. They couldn’t very well have Loki (Tom Hiddleston) be the villain of yet another movie. The two brothers find out that Thor is not the first born but in fact Hela is and she was banished years and years ago. “The first image to be released from Ragnarok was concept art of Hela, antlers extended and standing with her back to the viewer as she prepares to unleash hell on the soldiers of Asgard,” writes Nick Romano, vanityfair.com.

Another hallmark of the movie was “Immigrant Song” by Led Zeppelin. The song appeared in the trailer and twice in the movie and it was practically a match made in Asgard, but how did they get the rights to a song by such a prominent band, Shannon Liao, theverge.com, discusses this. “It sounds like a perfect fit for Marvel’s blockbuster Thor movies about the hammer-wielding Norse thunder god, which is why Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi was so insistent about getting it in his film — but landing the rights was no easy feat. It took the film’s music supervisor Dave Jordan the entire length of the production to get the go-ahead from Led Zeppelin, Waititi told Business Insider,” writes Liao.

100% go see this movie! Everything about it was spot on!

Dream I Never Had: Realized.

Hey guys!

I’m sure many of you are bored with the repetitious entertainment blogs I post every week. Bare with me please because the semester is almost over.

Today I am talking about a class I’m in. At my school, our capstone class is the course that is suppose to take more work than the others. In a sense getting you ready for the real world and the type of job you are probably looking for in your field.

My field being journalism, we could pick one of two directions: print or broadcast.

Now I hate public speaking so naturally I went to print, especially because I have hopes of becoming an editor at a publishing company which would be print and not broadcast.

Anyway, the class is basically working for the school newspaper and to get points for the class we have to publish stories.

That’s right, you are looking at a published writer!

I never thought I would want to be a writer and I’m still not sure, but it feels really good to see my name in print and my words on the page.

I am going to post the links to my articles below. Feel free to read them and tell me what you think!

Hey guys!

Today we are diving head first into celebrity news.

Peter Sblendorio, nydailynews.com, talks about the breakup between Selena Gomez and The Weeknd. “The R&B singer dumped Gomez in a phone call several weeks ago, insiders told the celebrity gossip website, but things hadn’t been right since the summer. The stars reportedly didn’t get to spend much time together of late due to their busy, conflicting schedules,” Sblendorio wrote.

You know what that means, Justin Bieber is already thinking up strategies to get his girl back.

Jordan Runtagh, people.com, writes of the former couple possibly rekindling things. “The former flames, who dated on-and-off from 2011 to 2015, were all smiles as they peddled around Los Angeles—he in a sporty red skater hoodie, she in a classic grey sweater. The ride marks the third time that Gomez and Bieber have been seen together since her breakup with the R&B star born Abel Tesfaye was revealed on Monday, but sources tell PEOPLE that their rekindled friendship was not responsible for the split,” Runtagh explains.

Let me know in the comments if you think Bieber and Selena should get back together.

Hey guys!

Today we are talking about John Stamos.

First up is Kristin Dos Santos, eonline.com, talked with Stamos about his show Grandfathered being cancelled last year. “‘I loved Grandfathered,’ the 52-year-old actor tells E! News. ‘But sometimes you’re the bug and sometimes you’re the windshield. I’ve had an embarrassing amount of up’s in my life and career—I can certainly deal with a few downs.  I’ll miss my adorable cast and seeing what journeys our characters would have traveled.'”

In more recent news, Stamos, 54, is now engaged to Caitlin McHugh, 31. Nardine Saad, latimes.com, talks about his new life path. “The ‘Fuller House’ star popped the question at Disneyland, sharing the news on Twitter and Instagram on Sunday. ‘I asked…she said yes! …And we lived happily ever after,’ Stamos wrote, captioning an illustration of himself and his lady love embracing in front of Sleeping Beauty’s castle.”

Uncle Jesse is official off the market! To quote the LA Times headline, Stamos is engaged “and a million hearts just broke.”
