Back in May we got to see video of Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o making an appearance on Sesame Street en Español and today we get to see her back on the show, this time in English. In the clip you can see above, Lupita and Elmo discuss the importance of skin. It’s a really cute video, I have to say. It’s always a great day on Sesame Street when Lupita pays a visit :D
"I’m fascinated by the whole clown phobia thing"
We are one day closer to the October 8 premiere of the new season of American Horror Story: Freak Show on FX and the promo push for the show is getting into high gear. Ryan Murphy, who loves talking with Entertainment Weekly magazine, sat down with EW to answer some questions about the new season before it debuts and he shares quite a bit of new information about what we can expect on the new season of AHS. Additionally, a new promo poster for Freak Show has been released and as you can see below, it’s a pretty tame poster. The interview answers by Ryan, tho, is the real draw here so click below and learn about the Freak Show. More »

"I would like to say a few things to those who are skeptical of Scottish independence"
On September 18, Scotland will vote to decide if they wish to remain a part of the United Kingdom or wish to break off and become an independent country of their own. And while the matter is a very serious one, I would like to share a humorous video that pokes a bit of fun at the ballot initiative. Groundskeeper Willie, one of the beloved minor characters on The Simpsons, has come out in support of voting for Scottish independence and he explains his reasons why in the video embedded above. I would never presume to suggest that I, personally, have an opinion on how the people of Scotland should vote but I can appreciate that it is a very serious matter. On September 18, the people of Scotland might decide that for the first time in over 300 years, they no longer want to be connected politically to rule by the United Kingdom. I’m very anxious to see which way the vote will go but I have every confidence that the Scottish people will make the right decision for them. Any Scots out there have an opinion on the matter that they would like to share?

Let It Die already
Earlier today we saw video of Ellen DeGeneres and Kristen Wiig performing a duet of Let It Go from the Disney animated film Frozen and I wondered aloud if the performance was a signal that the Let It Go phenomenon had jumped the shark. Right now we learn from Lea Michele that the new season of Glee will feature its own performance of Let It Go, which I know now will be the final death knell for the much-performed, overhyped song. Ugh. More »
Beating a Dead Horse
Ellen DeGeneres thought it would be a fun gag to sing the Frozen song Let It Go with Kristen Wiig despite the fact that neither woman knew the lyrics to the song … or something like that. The result? An expectedly terrible performance that actually turned out to be somewhat entertaining. If you’re not entirely sick of hearing Let It Go just yet, you will likely enjoy the video above … or it just may drive you over the edge and make you hate the song once and for all. Enjoy.
Season Three airs tomorrow; let's celebrate her awesomeness
First off, you all would be so proud of me. All of you who told me to drop everything and start watching The Mindy Project, I heard your cries! But I’m doing it weirdly… as in I’m watching episode 17 of Season 2 right now because that’s the first one On Demand, LOL. Whenever the show ends up on Netflix, I’ll be all up in Season One, but for now I’m enjoying “Be Cool” AKA the one where Mindy and Danny are secretly dating, but then there’s a party and things go badly.
But let’s talk about how Mindy Kaling is a fashionista and I didn’t even realize it until I started Instagram-stalking her yesterday. I mean. DAMN! She is so stunning, and I love, love, love her color choices. Very Lupita Nyong’o with it, so let’s celebrate the coming of Season Three with an insanely large collection of her best looks (there many). Peep the gallery for more!
P.S. OMG I’m on the episode with Schmidt from New Girl and the #SchmindyProject hashtag just made me do a spit take. I love this shoooow!
She's dating Poussey now!
Okay, that headline is a little crass, but this is actually a sweet story… I think. Lauren Morelli is a writer for Orange is the New Black (and now I’m thinking we know how character Lorna Morello got her name, right?), and she has been speaking out about how writing certain scenes for the show helped her come out. Now, on the one hand, that is awesome. But it also has kind of a sad bent to it, because she is married, and now in the process of getting a divorce. Morelli is also dating the insanely talented OITNB actress Samira Wiley (Poussey on the show… accent à droite), so that’s super cute right? I guess I just feel kinda bad for her hubby, who probably didn’t expect his divorce to go viral. I’m curious to know what you guys think about this, so click inside for more!
No, really, it's short
Earlier today we got to see a fun batch of promo photos from the upcoming new season of American Horror Story: Freak Show and right now, we get to check out the latest teaser video for the new season. It’s a short little number that doesn’t really offer much but … who says size matters? OK, in this instance, maybe size does matter because, honestly, this teaser is pretty lacking. To make up for it, you can click below to check out another teaser video that is much better to watch, even if it’s presented in low quality. Enjoy. More »
