Beyonce’s Lemonade Trailer

There are, I believe, a few people who do not plan to tune in on Sunday night at 9pm to HBO to watch the premiere of Season 6 of Game of Thrones. In order to attempt to solve this dilemma, HBO has apparently booked another enormous pop culture moment the night before, at 9pm Saturday night.

Beyoncé. Natch.

She will be debuting…..something…..called “Lemonade.” From the looks of the trailer, one would guess it’s a video, mostly likely a follow up to “Formation.” It will be interesting to see if it sticks to the same minimalist dance floor jam with extremely pointed political overtones as her last video, or if “Formation” was a stand alone, and not the direction of her entire new album that will (eventually) follow.

Beyonce Rumored to be Joining The Wiz Cast

Well, that’s one way to stop the twitter hate watching. No one will spend their time snarking on the show if Beyoncé is cast–the Beyhive is too strong.

NBC’s latest installment of “live musical performances” during the holiday season is the modern classic The Wiz. After the surprise hit of The Sound of Music, and the barely admitted to flop of Peter Pan, NBC seems to be actually putting a major effort into making their third outing one that doesn’t rely on Twitter hate watching the program, but instead be something children of all ages will turn in to see.

The Wiz has already announced the casting of  Mary J. Blige, as the Wicked Witch of the West Evillene and Queen Latifah as the Wizard. Beyoncé is reportedly being offered Glinda the Good Witch. As for Dorothy, the plan is to cast an unknown after a nationwide search, since apparently American Idol’s portfolio of female African-American singers is not considered impressive enough, or young enough, and Lester Holt doesn’t have a daughter who wants to use nepotism to break into showbiz.

Grammys 2015 Winners RoundUp

The Grammys is run by old people, for old people. (The red carpet on the other hand, is for the young. We’ll post that later today.) This year was thankfully devoid of embarrassments on the order of Macklemore, Iggy stayed firmly in her seat all night and went home empty-handed. Kanye pretended he was going to jump the stage, for old times sake. Paul McCartney performed, because he’s going to be asked to do so until the day he finally passes. But in general the show–which has become mostly a variety show concert in the last few years, brought on the oldest and the safest for the telecast portion of the show. I mean, we opened with AC/DC. Who haven’t been relevant this century. We’ll skip them, as they spent most of their performance reading the lyrics from teleprompters. Let’s get to the good stuff.

One of the best performances of the evening came from 60-year-old Annie Lennox. Not only did she silence her critics, most of whom were still ready to rip her apart for tone-deaf comments last summer, but she schooled poor Hozier in just how to enter and own a stage from beginning to end.
