The beautiful philanthropist, fitness enthusiast, and witty ‘girl next door’ of the most recent installment of the popular The Real Housewives franchise, Stephanie Hollman, is a gem among Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Dallas.”
The world is full of mutants, according to the Marvel Universe that is home to the X-Men franchise. Now after the success of the movie LOGAN, as well as the acclaimed television series LEGION, the deck is being played completely with another spinoff, GIFTED.
The trailer is enticing, and the title, GIFTED, is a way to imply that being different isn’t necessarily a curse.
Internationally recognized Dutch Canadian model-turned-DJ/producer Eva Shaw has released a new single “High,” (Brooklyn Knights/Sony RAL) featuring Grammy Award Winner, Shaggy and up-comer, Demarco. The track has a tropical island dancehall feel, and is available on Spotify, Apple Music and purchase the track on iTunes.
About “High” Shaw explains, “I had the pleasure of having Shaggy jump on stage with me during one of my shows and he stayed up there for the whole set. We had such a great vibe together on stage and I’ve been a huge fan of his my whole life. I wanted to create a crossover between his dance hall and reggae roots mixed with my feel good dance music. When Demarco jumped on board, he put the last needed touch on this record”
Shaggy adds, “I had an amazing time working with Eva on her latest release. This song is a really good record with high energy, and a modern EDM/Dancehall twist. Demarco lends his vocals to the chorus beautifully, which makes it even more infectious.”
Eva recently saw success with here single “Rise N Shine,” featuring the vocals of singer songwriter-producer Poo Bear (known for his work on Justin Bieber’s “Where Are Ü Now” and “What Do You Mean?”). The single, which has over 12 million streams on Spotify, was a crossover hit showcasing Eva’s ability to take on the Top 40 world, in addition to club-ready dance anthems. The video was directed by Jaakko Manninen and features Poo Bear plus Shaw sporting some looks from the collection she designed for G-Star RAW.
There is very little question that if you’ve never watched the STARZ cable network, you might be about to start. That’s because the trailer for their new series, AMERICAN GODS, leaves you waiting in anticipation.

The AMERICAN GODS cast also includes several well-known celebs, such as
- Crispin Glover as Mr. World
- Ian McShane as Mr. Wednesday
- Cloris Leachman as Zorya Vechernyaya
- Gillian Anderson as Media
- Orlando Jones as Mr. Nancy
- Dane Cook as Robbie
- Kristin Chenoweth as Easter
- and Corbin Bernsen as Vulcan
You have to love a good trailer, especially one that successfully reveals good reasons for becoming excited to see a movie. This Wonder Woman trailer does that, in spades. It shows a bit of the Amazon origin story (but not too much), it shows some conflict (but not too much), it shows more action (but not too much), it shows that she’s special (we already knew that), and it shows she’s awesome (there can never be too much).
Director Patty Jenkins, Gal Gadot (WW), and Chris Pine are probably feeling fairly confident about now.
Did we mention, that pounding soundtrack is hot?
The thing about Logan is that in the X-Men series he is known as the wild child, the uncontrollable fury of the team. He slices and dices bad guys, and he cannot be hurt because his wounds heal immediately. He never ages, and he’s immune to most poisons and drugs.
His One true weakness is actually his relationships with others, especially those that he loves or cares for… So when you go to watch the movie LOGAN you assume that this might still be the case. In many ways it is, as we look at his relationship with Charles Xavier, formally known as Professor X, leader of the X-Men. But it is also surprising to see that the things we considered as his physical strengths are waning. Why they are fading is a mystery, though it is slightly revealed in the film. Yet what is revealed is that there exist another Wolverine-type person out there. What is his relationship with that person now, what was it in the past, and what will it be in the future? These are the questions that are directly confronted in the film when we discover that this person is a young preteen girl with all of the capabilities for which Logan, a.k.a. Wolverine, was renowned, and none of the history.
That story development is partially what makes LOGAN a tearjerker more than an action movie. The cinematic action does happen regularly, and it is incredible to watch. It is beyond incredible to watch Wolverine do what he does best, and it is even more incredible to watch the girl (X-23) do what she is learning to do best. But it is so very credible to watch their growing relationship and bond, as well as the bond between Wolverine and Professor X, and feel your heart ache.
There are other bonds in the film as well, between strangers met along side the road, between doctors and patients, between classmates and fellow prisoners. This is truly a relationship story, and if you think that will make it boring, don’t be fooled. LOGAN is one of the most engrossing movies that has ever been made about what it takes to be live as a superhero.
