Lana Condor is an LG fave. We’ve been obsessed with her since August when her charm and capability exploded off the screen in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. Today I realized that while we’ve been falling for Lana Condor, we still don’t know a lot about her. Full Story

Can you call it a comeback if she’s been here for years? Can you call it comeback if her last reinvention was just over a year ago? People are calling Miley Cyrus’s new song and video with Mark Ronson her “comeback.” I wouldn’t call it that. I’d call it a new single that follows a very typical release schedule after her last album. Full Story

I was not prepared. I tried to prepare myself. I waited until I was alone so whatever sounds left my body wouldn’t disturb my coworkers. I made sure I was hydrated in case the sight of Michael Bae Jordan and puppies made me burst into a cold sweat.

Remember when The Best Chris had a black eye? Every time I see a trailer or news about his latest collaboration with Patty Jenkins, a TNT mini-series called I Am The Night, I think of Chris’s black eye. Full Story

Oh, you thought I was done obsessing over Creed II? I’m not. Today the focus of my obsession is what Tessa Thompson brought to her role as Bianca. The Rocky franchise is all about the underdog story. It’s about triumph in the face of insurmountable circumstances. It’s about striving for an impossible dream. Full Story

Creed II: The soundtrack

“Eye of The Tiger” is one of the most iconic movie songs of all time. It’s one of the reasons Rocky III is my favourite Rocky movie. I feel like the heavyweight champion of the world just listening to it. Find me in the gym (lol) listening to this song and I’m throwing jab crosses in the air like a fool. Full Story

In the four years since Amanda Bynes “broke the Internet” before Paper Magazine made that term a thing, and for very different reasons than the other breakers of browsers, the Internet has changed. Amanda’s public battle with addiction which unraveled in real time on Twitter would - I hope - be received much differently today. Full Story
