Everything was not as poppin’ as it should be. First of all, we love Katy Perry dearly, but she should never again be allowed to host any awards show. She is corny, not  funny, and would have served better doing more performances last night to give the people a taste of what her upcoming tour will look like. Still, the performances saved the show. Kendrick Lamar was the superhero of performances last night visually, performing two of his hit singles, DNA and Humble. Check out his performance below!

Pink, the recipient of the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award, stayed true to her style and performed in the air–atop a convertible, albeit! Her medley of past hits definitely oozed with early 2000’s nostalgia. Still we wish she would have done some of her more historic hits like most Girls and Just Like A Pill. You can catch her acceptance speech below!

Other highlights of the night include Taylor Swift (even though she did not show up) debuting her new music video, Look What You Made Me Do; a true nod to the VMAs and consisting of past and present versions of herself.

We love how Nicki Minaj finally jumped in on a performance when she and Katy did Swish Swish. We definitely think it’s time for the former to debut a new album though, some of these other female rappers are “Making money moves!”

The night was full of amazement and we want to congratulate all the winners! Check them out on the next page!

the chilling adventures of Sabrina canceled

Over the course of Part 4’s eight episodes, The Eldritch Terrors will descend upon Greendale. The coven must fight each terrifying threat one-by-one (The Weird, The Returned, The Darkness to name a few), all leading up to…The Void, which is the End of All Things. As the witches wage war, with the help of The Fright Club, Nick begins to slowly earn his way back into Sabrina’s heart, but will it be too late?

“Working on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been an incredible honor from Day One,” showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said in a statement. “The cast, beginning with Kiernan as everyone’s favorite teen witch, has been an absolute joy. I am beyond thankful to the crew, writers, editors, assistants, and everyone for pouring so much love into this dark dream of a show. I’m also grateful to our partners at Netflix, Warner Bros., Berlanti Television and Archie Comics for letting us tell the story we wanted to tell, the way we wanted to tell it. We can’t wait for everyone to see Part Four.”

This is the second cancellation of an Archie Comics-inspired spinoff in as many weeks, with The CW‘s Katy Keene also getting axed just a matter of days ago. While both shows had disparate connections to The CW’s flagship Riverdale, fans had campaigned for all three series to continue on — and maybe even cross over with each other.

We hate to see Sabrina go! This was definitely one of our favorite series. We are wondering what the final decision to chop the series was based on. Ratings? On set drama? Perhaps we can get a spinoff off from it? Perhaps an Ambrose Spellman spinoff if we are lucky.

Black & Bisexual Actress, Javicia Leslie, Cast As New “Batwoman” on The CW Series!

The CW’s “Batwoman” has seen a lot of action and drama on and behind the scenes in its first season. The largest amount of drama being the surprise and abrupt exit of the series’ star, Ruby Rose. Immediately, The CW began looking to recast for a lead, opting not to base the series on Kate Kane, but instead a new Batwoman all together underneath the cape and cowl.

Now The CW’s “Batwoman” has announced that African-American actress, Javicia Leslie, has been cast as the new Batwoman, as reposted on the series main Twitter page from Deadline.

Now The CW’s “Batwoman” has announced that African-American actress, Javicia Leslie, has been cast as the new Batwoman, as reposted on the series main Twitter page from Deadline.

Batwoman producers Warner Bros. Television and Berlanti Productions did not look far to find their new Batwoman — Leslie is coming off a two-season run as a series regular on the Berlanti Prods./WBTV drama for CBS God Friended Me. 

With Leslie’s casting, Batwoman continues to break new ground.

“I am extremely proud to be the first Black actress to play the iconic role of Batwoman on television, and as a bisexual woman, I am honored to join this groundbreaking show which has been such a trailblazer for the LGBTQ+ community,” Leslie said.

Batwoman premiered last fall as the first superhero series in television history to feature an avowed LGBTQ character as the central character. Following Rose’s departure, the producers vowed to cast another LGBTQ actor in the role.

As Deadline previously reported, Leslie will play a new character in the title role who will succeed Rose’s Kate Kane. Leslie will portray Ryan Wilder who is about to become Batwoman. She’s likable, messy, a little goofy and untamed. She’s also nothing like Kate Kane, the woman who wore the Batsuit before her. With no one in her life to keep her on track, Ryan spent years as a drug-runner, dodging the GCPD and masking her pain with bad habits. Today Ryan lives in her van with her plant. A girl who would steal milk for an alley cat and could also kill you with her bare hands, Ryan is the most dangerous type of fighter: highly skilled and wildly undisciplined. An out lesbian. Athletic. Raw. Passionate. Fallible. And very much not your stereotypical All-American hero.

We have to say we are looking forward to seeing Javicia as Batwoman. It definitely takes the character in a new direction and even away from the source material in DC Comics. The CW prides itself on diversity. It certainly is doing that by casting a Black and bisexual woman in this role. (The show did promise the next actress would be LGBT as well.) This is not Javicia’s first LGBT-related role as she played a lesbian on “God Friended Me” before it was canceled on CBS.

We also hope fan reaction to the new casting is somewhat kind. We know fanboys and fangirls can be quite brutal when it comes to their favorite superheroes being altered. Now, the final question is what will Kate Kane’s ultimate fate be. Will Ruby Rose reprise her role just long enough for her to say a proper goodbye to the character she brought to life?

WHY!? The CW Cancels “Riverdale” Spinoff, “Katy Keene!” Star, Lucy Hale, Breaks Down…

In a last minute, and surprising decision, The CW has opted to cancel its late season series, the “Riverdale” spinoff, “Katy Keene!”

In a last minute, and surprising decision, The CW has opted to cancel its late season series, the “Riverdale” spinoff, “Katy Keene!”

The series starred former “Pretty Little Liars” starlet, Lucy Hale as the titular character with her three friends, singer Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), drag queen and performer Jorge “Ginger” Lopez (Jonny Beauchamp), and the street smart budding entrepreneur, Pepper Smith (Julia Chan) as they all pursue their dreams on the mean streets of New York City.

Lucy actually broke down over the cancellation going on to Instagram to voice her hurt.

Ashleigh and Jonny have yet to comment, but Julia Chan posted her feelings about the show as well.

Modest ratings are the alleged blame for the series’ cancellation, which unlike its parent series, “Riverdale” and Archie Comics-related show, “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” took a brighter stance with the portrayal of its characters.

The show is actually the only series on The CW not to be renewed for a new season. The creator of the show is looking for a new home for the series which we are hoping will be HBO Max–where episodes are currently in syndication. At least there the show can have a bigger budget and perhaps a little “Sex & The City” maturity added to its already amazing New York feng shui.

We are really going to miss “Katy Keene!” It had become one of our favorite shows on television. We are praying this is not the end. Where’s the petition to sign! SAVE KATY KEENE!
