Drew-Sidora-272x300

For the last couple of months there have been several rumors making their rounds on the blogosphere about popular reality show “The Real Housewives of Atlanta“. Everybody wants to know which ‘housewife’ (I use the term loosely because they do too *side eye and shade*) is getting the boot, who’s possibly getting an upgrade (or a new boo) or which new peach is going to try and enter their world. Probably the biggest question being asked around town was “did Nene Leakes really get Claudia Jordan” fired and if so, who’s going to fill her seat on the cast.

Jussie Smollett (@jussiesmollett) Talks OUTloud at The 2015 BET Awards!

jussie-02

Empire is one helluva a television show. The success of the series has given a few of its main characters, Jussie Smollett, Yazz the Greatest (Bryshere Gray), and Serayah McNeil their own music careers as well. Last night, at the 2015 BET Awards, fans of the show (which is the everyone on the planet at this point) were treated to a performance by Yazz, Jussie, and Serayah. Yazz led the pack with a remix of “No Apologies” featuring Juicy J. Then, Serayah, sexy as ever, joined the fray as the two performed “Drip Drop.” Needless to say they killed it! Jussie closed out their set with a controversial rendition of “You’re So Beautiful.” In the middle of his performance he paused to give this speech:

We live in a nation where freedom is what we represent, yet we are still fighting every day for the basic freedoms of all of our people,” he said. “Let the Supreme Court ruling be proof of how far we have come. Let the deaths of sisters and brothers be proof of how far we have to go. No one is free until we are all free.” He ended the performance with three simple words: “Stand for love.

Jussie then continued to perform the song, but with the gay remake of it when he states, “…this is type of song that makes a man love a man..” Needless to say it was one of the shocking highlights of the night. However, it seems to be a sign of the times as even the legendary Patti LaBelle spoke in favor of the Supreme Court’s gay marriage following her performance with Tamar Braxton and K. Michelle! You can check out a clip from the performance and Jussie’s speech in the video below!

wpid-wp-1434807834089.jpeg

It is 2015 and let’s face it, LGBT children exist. You know them, grow up with them, and many people even parent them. Children are children, and their sexuality may not register for years to come; but they need to see positive reactions and representations of themselves on television. No, we are not talking about graphic cartoons depicting man on man sex or curious girls playing “boyfriend.” We are talking about simple animated series that just so happen to have gay characters or are LGBT friendly due to their themes. Check out our list on the next page!

Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus

Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus

#4. Sailor Moon-Sailor Moon is an anime series centered on teams of mostly girls known as the Sailor Senshi, who protect the Earth from the forces of evil. Each of them have powers and abilities centered on planets. The show was a hit in the nineties, recently a reboot of the series, Sailor Moon Crystal has resurfaced and regained popularity. However, the show’s depiction of Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune as two women in a deep and loving relationship is admirable, and was well before its time. Then there are the Sailor Starlights, men who transform into courageous female heroes in protection of their princess. Interesting huh?

Melissa Rivers (@MelRivers) to Take Joan Rivers Coveted Spot on Fashion Police (@e_FashionPolice)!

Melissa-Rivesr-300x222

Ever since Joan Rivers‘ untimely demise, the show Fashion Police has been overwrought with drama, dysfunction and the departure of several hosts.

Earlier this year Fashion Police came under fire after the host Giuliana Rancic made offensive remarks about Zendaya and her choice of hairstyle. This eventually led to the exit of Kelly Osbourne who is also friends with Zendaya. After just seven episodes, comedian Kathy Griffin took to Instagram to announce her departure: “My brand of humor, while unrepentant and unafraid, is all about CONTEXT. There is plenty to make fun of in pop culture without bringing people’s bodies into it… After 7 episodes of Fashion Police, I discovered that my style does not fit with the creative direction of the show & now it’s time to move on.” 

Fashion Police

After the long and lengthy hiatus of the show and losing two of its co-hosts, Melissa Rivers, daughter to former host – the late Joan Rivers, has stepped in and is being named the new c0-host of the show taking over her mother’s coveted spot. Melissa will join Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski when the show returns for new episodes on August 31.

What do you think of Melissa’s decision to join the show? Do you think she’ll bring her mother’s sense of comedy and critiquing to the floor? Sound off below!

“Game Of Thrones” (@GameOfThrones) Director Talks Shocking Finale!

got-season-5-300x201

*Spoiler Alert!!!!*

The “Game Of Thrones” came and went as it aired it’s season finale last night. And I most say, it left a lot of fans stunned and emotionally drained. Deadline caught up with the director, David Nutter, to talk about the finale the took away some key players and promoted some new conflict within the series.

On Jon Snow‘s end:

“It’s really the true Julius Caesar moment for Jon Snow.”

On the other demises scattered throughout the finale:

“It’s one surprise after the next. It comes right at you in this final episode, and it’s like no other season finale that I know I’ve been a part of or watched. Dan and Dave are so brilliant with respect to arcing out these stories, and how they take place, and how the arc of each of the stories and showing how they play out. They’re so brilliant at that that I treat episodes 9 and 10 like a 2-hour movie and as its own piece of work.”

On the importance of the source material:

“I did not read the books, and for me, I let the scripts basically be my Bible. I think so much of the time, regardless if one has read the books or not, we forget what the first impression really is and why that’s going to matter most to the audience.”

On his favorite moments from Season Five:

“Season 5 was such that I was just really moved by it all, and in that respect, it’s something that you can never give a short shrift to any of the moments. They’re so vitally important. As a director, I only know how to do it one way, is to pour my heart and soul into everything, as well as that’s the only way David and Dan know how to work as well.”
