MTV Is Bringing ‘TRL’ Back!

Image result for trl

Know what one of my favorite childhood memories was? Being in the crowd at ‘TRL’, that’s right little six year old me pushed my way through the streets of New York, okay my dad did, but I pushed my way through and got to see Damien Fahey through the large window of the ‘TRL’ studios as he waved to the crowd.

It looks like MTV knows how hot nostalgia is right now though because they are bringing back the show that made it all happen. It made music videos happen, it made superstars happen, just a show that absorbed all of the pop culture it possibly could.

MTV recently announced that they would be starting the pop culture phenomenon back up in October. It will be in New York City but it doesn’t look like it will be in the same studio which is a damn shame.

The channel announced that they will be on television as well as other social media platforms.

No, I will not be a host and I am pissed.

I spent my weekend in Nashville so I basically know everything that there is to know about country music. Well maybe there are still some things to learn but today I learned that Carrie Underwood is now the reigning queen of country music.

Today she officially passed Reba and Dolly who both has 25 number 1 hits, Carrie now has 26 number 1 hits.

Let’s be clear, as much as I love Kelly Clarkson I think we know that Carrie is the best selling artist to come from ‘American Idol’.

Interview With Alex Murrel From ‘Laguna Beach’!

Image result for alex m laguna beach

Let’s be clear, ‘Laguna Beach’ was one of the best reality television shows ever to grace our televisions.

It opened up the doors to all of those semi-scripted looking shows, although the cast of ‘Laguna’ have said that they were never handed scripts. Instead they had to recreate different things that happened when cameras weren’t rolling.

Well, 13 years after it premiered I would definitely say that the show still has such a part in pop culture. It showed all different kinds of teenage angst, friendship, and the soundtrack was so dope.

The show is iconic, that simple.

If you say that something is “dunzo”, there is a 99% chance that people will recognize it from Kristin’s car breaking down on the highway. Even now MTV gets a huge spike whenever they do their throwback weekends of the show.

Now, I just started an Instagram account Laguna_biotch (if you aren’t following it you should) and one night I got a little brave and asked Alex M for an interview. That’s right, the Alex M who took no shit from anyone and taught us all to stand up for ourselves. Well,taught teenage girls in the early 2000’s to do so. Luckily, to my surprise she agreed to answer a few questions for a small website trying to make it big.

1) Did you think 13 years later ‘Laguna Beach’ would still be such a staple in pop culture and people would still be talking about it? 

Alex: It literally blows my mind! People will come up to me and say “I loved you on Laguna” and honestly, I’m always so surprised. To think 14 years later people still recognize me or care about the show really does show what a pop culture icon it was!

2) Do you think that you were accurately portrayed on the show?

Alex: I think when you are 18 and your life is on camera, you tend to do things you probably wouldn’t have done had you been a little more mature. I tried to stay true to myself while filming and not waiver from that. I do feel that editing was a major role in ‘Laguna’ and creating characters is just standard when producing a “reality” show- people wouldn’t be interested if there was no drama.

Things were definitely exaggerated and editing made it seem as if it happened in one day. I think if you are a true ‘Laguna’ fan you can pin point where the editors messed up. All in all, I do not think I was accurately portrayed- I’m much nicer than they made me out to be.

3) How was life immediately after Laguna Beach, the backlash, the rumors, things like that?

Alex: Life was crazy to say the least. I had gone to college right after the show aired. My college roommates at the time would have viewing parties, girls would run in and leave stuff at my door and I would get love or hate notes on my car. It was crazy! I ended up moving to LA pretty soon after to pursue music instead and even that was a whirlwind. I think I was naïve going into this experience not to think the “15 min” of fame would follow but it was a great experience and even with the good and bad, I still wouldn’t trade it for the world. I honestly miss it.

4) *NSYNC or Backstreet Boys, I just feel like I have to ask anyone who grew up in the late 90’s/early 2000’s that question. 

Alex: I have to say Backstreet Boys only because Nick’s sister, Angel is a good friend of mine and my old roommate

So there you have it folks, a short interview with an absolutely iconic reality star. You can say I am wrong but we all remember the Cabo fight between her and Jessica, or her standing up to Casey.

What is Alex up to now? She and Morgan S, you know the Morgan who was friends with both cliques and never got enough screen-time? Well, they are still besties and run a marketing company called MOX Agency together.

To keep up with Alex you can follow her on Instagram where she posts adorable photos of her son.

Kendrick Lamar & Rihanna Team Up For “Loyalty” Video – Watch Here

Now I know that this video was released two days ago but I was on vacation and I wanted to give this the appreciation that it deserves.

“Loyalty” is definitely my favorite song on the DAMN album and this video serves visuals, there’s no denying that.

One thing I would like to also point out is how fucking beautiful Rihanna looks. I swear this woman is a goddess, what did we do to deserve her? She is out there serving looks and serving vocals, that’s all I need in my life!

I wish she would spit gum at me. Is that weird? Whatever.

Kendrick and Rihanna basically Bonnie and Clyde.

‘The Hills’ Star Whitney Port Welcomes Baby Boy!

Everyone remembers Whitney Port, right? She was basically the moral compass when it came to ‘The Hills’ and she even had her own short lived spin-off called ‘The City’.

Well the former reality star turned blogger and author welcomed a baby boy with her husband Tim Rosenman. Of course her former co-star Lauren Conrad also welcomed a baby boy earlier this money.

Imagine those two well dressed boys hanging out, I don’t think it will happen but I love the thought of it anyway!

Oh and as for a name? Sonny, his name is Sonny and it’s fucking adorable.

Congrats to Whitney and her husband, and to Sonny because he will never have a bad outfit, ever.

Justin Bieber Cancels Remainder Of ‘Purpose’ Tour

Image result for justin bieber purpose

Out of nowhere Justin has decided to cancel the remaining dates of his ‘Purpose’ tour which included some stadium stops in the United States.

I mean, I am not trying to say anything but for him to abruptly cancel a tour like this? Something must have went down, although I don’t think that Bieber is on his way to rehab or anything like that.

The statement that was released said “due to unforeseen circumstances, Justin Bieber will cancel the remainder of the Purpose World Tour concerts. Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them. He thanks his fans for the incredible experience of the Purpose World Tour over last 18 months. He is grateful and honored to have shared that experience with his cast and crew for over 150 successful shows across six continents during this run. However, after careful consideration, he has decided he will not be performing any further dates. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.”

A lot of reports are saying that Bieber was simply over the tour and no longer wanted to perform.

End of the day, Bieber is over it, he doesn’t give a fuck about his fans or touring, he just wants the money and that’s that.

All of those 13 year-olds crying about it, grow up and realize that your pop star love sucks.

I know that was aggressive but get over it.

Louis Tomlinson Teams Up With Bebe Rexha For “Back At You” – Listen Here!

I never thought I would say this but this new Louis Tomlinson is kind of fire.

When Louis was a part of One Direction I definitely wasn’t a fan of Louis’ voice but this song is so catchy. If a song is catchy I will automatically like it, call me basic whatever. Pop music holds such a special spot in my heart.

Between Bebe and Louis this song is absolutely incredible. I love the lyrics, I love the beat, everything is on point with this song.

Ryan Seacrest Will Host ‘American Idol’ Reboot

Image result for american idol american idol

I am still not totally sure if I am here for an American Idol reboot. The show ended and should stay in the cancelled locker forever. Near the end, nobody cared about the show, that simple. Also adding Katy Perry as judge definitely doesn’t make me want to watch.

Yesterday Ryan Seacrest confirmed that he would be hosting the show again, and I get it. He was the host for so long that he doesn’t want anyone else to take over the crown.

Why though?

Do I think that this reboot will somehow make the show relevant again? No, I think that people are kind of over singing competitions at the moment.

American Idol definitely changed a lot for pop culture, there is no denying that. Having Simon, Paula, and Randy behind the judges desk, having Ryan as a host. The chemistry was amazing, the contestants were great for the most part. Hell, American Idol taught American to text.

This just doesn’t sit well with me, I can’t help it.

It has also been confirmed that this will not interfere with any of his other jobs.

Chester Bennington Commits Suicide At 41

Related image

Today we have lost an absolute legend, Chester Bennington, the man who put every single emotion into all of his songs. In case you aren’t familiar with Chester, he was the lead singer of Linkin Park.

Over the years Chester has talked about his battle with depression and addiction.

According to TMZ, Chester hung himself at his home while his family was out of town.

This news comes on what would have been Chris Cornell’s 53rd birthday, someone who Chester was extremely close with. Back in May, Chester actually performed at Chris’ memorial service.

The band was even set to start a tour with Machine Gun Kelly, of course there has been no word on what will happen there. I would guess they could cancel but we will see. The band has yet to put out an official statement.

Truthfully this is a celebrity death that kind of hits very close for me and probably many other people. One of the great things about Linkin Park was their ability to make you feel. That simple, Linkin Park’s music makes you feel something. Hybrid Theory and Meteora were two albums that I could listen to each and every song on, never get sick of it.

If you know someone who is struggling with depression or having suicidal thoughts, please reach out them, let them know you are there for them. If you yourself are having these thoughts please know that there is help out there, and people want to be there for you.

Chester leaves behind six children.

Watch Rita Ora Perform “Your Song” On ‘The Tonight Show’

Get it girl!

My girl Rita is out there performing “Your Song” everywhere and I would love to heart it on the fucking radio. How does that even happen? Do I call the radio station and ask them to play it? I will fucking do it!

I have been a fan of Rita for a very long time, at least six years.

So it is time for America to show some respect!

Her voice is amazing, she is beautiful, and she has been so slut shamed by the media it’s fucking gross.

Listen to the song and fall in love.
