Are You “The DUFF?” Hilarious New Movie will have you wondering!

m3_154_duff_1sht_V1.indd

“The (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) DUFF.” Everyone knows or has one of them, but maybe you have never had the correct term (or courage) to describe one. Usually they are the “not so pretty” girl that pretty girls use to make themselves look better. This latest film hilariously pokes fun at that. Bianca (Mae Whitman) is a laid back high school senior whose self-image is decimated when she learns the rest of her classmates know her as “The DUFF” to her prettier, more popular friends. She sets out on a mission of reinvention to overthrow the school’s resident mean girl and label maker, Madison (Bella Thorne) and prove once and for all no matter what you look or act like everyone is someone else’s DUFF.

This film will go down in high school cinematic history. It is beyond funny! Eerily it reminds me of “She’s All That” meets “Mean Girls.” However, I must say Bella Thorne as “Madison” would easily give The Plastics a run for their money. I suppose Toby (Robbie Amell) will be her Freddy Prinze Jr./Shining Knight in the film ultimately. Still this will be worth seeing! You can catch “The DUFF” in theaters everywhere Friday, April 10, 2015!

Sam_Keating

The past and present finally sync in the latest episode of “How To Get Away With Murder.” Annalise and Sam have the argument to end all arguments when she reveals she has asked The District Attorney’s office to do a DNA on Lila’s unborn child. He berates her for her selfishness and she in turn challenges him on his truthfulness and manhood. He reveals he only married her because she was an “easy lay who liked rough, dirty sex!” She in turn reveals her affair with Nate, but does not mention his name. He tells her she is a hypocrite and they begin to fight. He chokes her against the wall and she begs him to kill her, but he relents. They part ways with her leaving the house. Later, Michaela comes by with the justice trophy in hand. She insists on seeing Annalise despite Sam hinting that now is not a good time. As they talk, Rebecca sneaks into the house and tries to creep past them up the stairs until Michaela notices her. She tells Michaela to call Wes and then runs up the stairs with Sam in hot pursuit. She locks herself in the bedroom and places Nate’s jump drive into the computer to download all of his information.

Wes and the others’ arrival temporarily stops Sam’s pursuit. Wes assures Rebecca it is safe to come out. As he escorts Rebecca past Sam he lunges at her trying to get his computer back. He fights the students off and then charges Michaela, who unwittingly flips him off the upstairs banister to the downstairs floor. He appears to be dead. The students and Rebecca go downstairs to check on him. There, Wes reveals that he may have killed Lila and that Annalise already knows it. Sam suddenly wakes up and begins choking Rebecca. Wes smacks him over the head with the trophy, killing him! Now all the Flash forwards from previous episodes begin to piece together.

Michaela tries to find her engagement ring to no avail.

New Music & New Movies! Sharon Leal is Always On Top!

7CAC3E31-9259-9F55-C6E6B8CA22FCBB85

When it comes to talent everyone has it, but few actually capitalize on it. Those that are tend to have us star struck! They become demigods and princesses of the media, out shined only by their material wealth and our desire to actually be them. These “celebrities” as we like to call them; may be a commonality by modern standards. However, when it comes to sheer star power few people have it like Sharon Leal! Sharon has been a mainstay and powerhouse in the music industry for years. As in such, she needs no formal introduction!

456884622

As a singer and actress, Sharon is quite the threat. She has more than proven her acting chops on television and film, with prominent roles in hit television shows and films like Boston Public, Dreamgirls, and now Addicted! Sharon’s latest role comes straight from a Zane novel. She is “Zoe Reynard,” a successful woman with a beautiful family and loving husband. She seems to have it all until she jeopardizes it with a series of torrid affairs. “This was definitely a racy film for me to do and different from anything I’ve ever done before…She [Zoe] isn’t like any character you’ve seen me portray, but I felt it’s realistic and there are some women actually doing this…” Indeed, the role was out of character for Sharon, we are use to seeing her characters as being more straight laced and refined. Zoe too, began as refined, but we watched as sexual addiction ravaged and nearly took her life. “It [sexual addiction] is a real problem, and no I don’t know anyone who has dealt with it, but we know they exist…I just hope they get help and take something from the film besides the sex scenes.”

Headshots! Nicki Minaj Covers Complex Magazine

Nicki-Minaj-covers-Complex-550x730

Uh uh uh! 2014 is not over yet and Nicki Minaj is NOT done slaying covers! This year alone Nicki has managed to snag more covers than Rihanna and Beyonce combined and needless to say the “Bed of Lies” rapper is more than tired (it was reported that Nicki fell asleep four times during her interview with GQ). But aside from her being overtired, you cannot deny the fact that Nicki Minaj is a hustler and nothing and no one will get in the way of her coinage.

In Nicki’s latest magazine spread, she also has a sit down with the people of Complex Magazine and not only does she answer the questions everyone’s been asking but she also has a pretty in-your-face response to the owner of All Hip Hop who penned an open letter to her her about her ‘Anaconda’ single cover.

On people saying that she’s reverted back to ‘Mixtape Nicki’

I didn’t go back to “Mixtape Nicki.” That’s how [members of the media] feel, but that’s not what I’ve done. I’ve never stopped rapping; I’ve never stopped doing freestyles; I’ve never stopped doing remixes and features; I’ve never stopped raising the bar lyrically. I understand and respect people’s opinions when they hear me do certain things and say she’s “going back,” but I haven’t gone back, I’ve moved forward. I’ve always been evolving.

Far Out Siblings! Jaden & Willow Smith Talk School, Inspiration, & Quantum Physics?!

17smith-wu-2-tmagArticle-v2

Jaden and Willow Smith are definitely not your run of the mill kids. Besides being the children of Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith, these two stars have become celebrities in their own right. Willow is known for her hit songs and unique fashion; while her brother, at sixteen, already has a few hit films in his body of work. Recently, the super star siblings sat down for a rare, joint interview with The New York Times Style Magazine and gave us a rare glimpse on a few facets of their lives.

Unsurprisingly, these kids have a unique outlook on life and with their unique interests it is no wonder! The pair revealed they study quantum physics as well as read ancient texts. Even more interesting are their abstract theories and hypotheses on how they view time. Read an excerpt from their interview below:

What have you been reading?

WILLOW: Quantum physics. Osho.

JADEN: “The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life” and ancient texts; things that can’t be pre-dated.

I’m curious about your experience of time. Do you feel like life is moving really quickly? Is your music one way to sort of turn it over and reflect on it?

WILLOW: I mean, time for me, I can make it go slow or fast, however I please, and that’s how I know it doesn’t exist.

JADEN: It’s proven that how time moves for you depends on where you are in the universe. It’s relative to beings and other places. But on the level of being here on earth, if you are aware in a moment, one second can last a year. And if you are unaware, your whole childhood, your whole life can pass by in six seconds. But it’s also such a thing that you can get lost in.

WILLOW: Because living.

JADEN: Right, because you have to live. There’s a theoretical physicist inside all of our minds, and you can talk and talk, but it’s living.

WILLOW: It’s the action of it.
