I need things to slow down a bit. Maybe we can all contribute to this if we sit down for a minute and consume content.
Jessica Biel is the ultimate enemy in this limited series, based on a gruesome and true crime from the 1980s.
Biel plays Candy Montgomery, a “perfect” Texas housewife who has an affair with her best friend’s husband that ends in murder.
“Candy” is currently streaming on Hulu.
‘Hacks’ Season 2
Critics and viewers both seem to love “Hacks” – and rightly so.
Jean Smart’s portrayal as legendary comedian Deborah Vance, pairing up with young comedy writer Ava Daniels, played by the equally talented Hannah Einbinder, made for some excellent television.
The show is back with a new season of their odd energy, and it’s still so funny and yet evolving at the same time.
The second season airs on HBO Max.
‘Bling Empire’ Season 2
“Bling Empire” focuses on a group of successful Asian friends, which means all the good living, all the fashion, and – of course – all the drama.
New episodes start streaming on Netflix this Friday.
Two things to listen to
Five years after his last critically acclaimed studio album, Kendrick Lamar is finally dropping a new project.
The new album comes out on Friday.
Florence Welch caught Covid and watched a lot of vampire content, including ‘Bram Stoker’s Dracula’.
“The whole record is a ‘be careful what you wish for’ fable,” Welch told the publication. “The performance freak heard me: don’t you want to tour anymore? Keep quiet for a year. How do you feel now?”
Watching horror movies during the pandemic has resulted in what The Times called “a collection of haunting rock songs that’s scouring for release.”
Pour it on us, because “Dance Fever” comes out Friday.
Something to talk about
Hooray for Anthony Anderson!
I love seeing people, celebrities in particular, show that it’s never too late to pursue your dreams. When a star does something like go back to school to get a degree, it can definitely influence others.
Especially because when you’re already accomplished, including being rich and famous, there can be less motivation to do something like go back to school.
So kudos to Anderson for achieving his goal and reminding us that it is possible.
something to sip
Another celebrity who uses his fame to inspire is Harry Styles.
Now he says the therapy has helped him “open up rooms within himself”, which is fitting, given that his latest album, due out May 20, is called ‘Harry’s House’.
“I think accepting to live, to be happy, to suffer in the extreme, is the most alive you can be,” Styles said. “Losing it crying, losing it laughing – there’s no way, I don’t think, to feel any more alive than that.”
Here’s to feeling alive!
