This is going to be my new favorite show, and you better watch it with me.
A little while back I wrote about one of the shows I’m most excited about this year—Transparent. Amazon is getting into the streaming game with a new series from Jill Soloway (Six Feet Under) about a family with some unique challenges. YOU HAVE TO WATCH THIS TRAILER, and then watch the series when it debuts on Amazon on September 26. Jeffrey Tambor plays a transition, transsexual father of three (played by Amy Landecker, Jay Duplass, and Gaby Hoffman). I loved the pilot episode and I expect to love the series. Peep the trailer for more!

That Ish Cray Of-The-Day
Well, I have to keep it real for a second. Women of color the world over (not all of us… but many of us) have been cringing as “twerking” has taken over the world. Why? Because, well, we invented it. OBVIOUSLY. And so it’s been a little funny to see…mhhh how do I put this nicely… booty-challenged women taking over and claiming “twerking” for their own, LOL. But it’s fine. Anyone can twerk, and that’s fine. But not everyone can do what Amber Rose just did, which is why this Instagram video taken by her husband Wiz Khalifa (who just scored his first Number 1 album), is now going viral.

DON'T get bent out of shape
Another day, another new teaser for the forthcoming new season of American Horror Story: Freak Show. Today’s clip shows us just how malleable the new season of AHS will be. Honestly, this new clip is probably my least favorite of the bunch but it’s still pretty freaky. Have a look above and remember, the new season of American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres on FX on October 8.
Adam Levine enlists the aid of his fellow 'Voice' judge
Maroon 5‘s newest album V is out in stores now and as you can hear above, it features a song titled My Heart is Open … which features guest vocals by Gwen Stefani. Gwen, as you may know, is one of the new judge/coaches alongside Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine on The Voice so it makes sense that the two would collaborate on a song together to promote both the album and their TV show. PERSONALLY, I’m much more interested in new solo Gwen music but I’ll take what I can get (even tho this new Maroon 5 song sounds a lot like every other Maroon 5 song that I’ve ever heard). Have a listen to My Heart is Open above and see what you think.
So … I don’t want to alarm anyone but … Snoop Dogg is blonde now. Yes, it’s true. Snoop uploaded a series of photos and videos on his official Instagram profile that show him as a blonde man named “Todd”. We all know that Snoop is the kind of guy who likes to have fun and everybody knows that blondes have more fun so … it makes sense? I dunno. What I do know is that Snoop looks kind of creepy as a blonde but it’s all good in the hood where Snoop‘s concerned. Click below to see video of blonde Snoop doing his thing and see what you think of his new look. More »

The show returns on September 22
Back in July we got our first look at the first teaser for the upcoming second season of Sleepy Hollow on Fox. Today we get to see a much longer, much more involved first look at the coming season. Stars Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie, along with various producers of the show, talk about where things left off when the debut season of Sleepy Hollow ended last spring and they preview the action that will come when the show returns next month. Click the embed above to get a really good, really cool first look at Sleepy Hollow season 2. If you’re not caught up, you still have to time to watch the first season before the new season gets underway. Sleepy Hollow season 2 will premiere on Fox on September 22. Woot!!

The best we're gonna get
Back in July two mini Friends reunions took place when two different groups of Friends actors got together for dinner and for an event on two different nights (HERE and HERE). Last night, Jimmy Kimmel managed to take the Friends reunion thing a step further and actually staged a pretty decent reunion on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Jimmy put together a very impressive recreation of Monica Geller‘s kitchen in his studio and successfully got Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow to reprise their roles as Rachel, Monica and Phoebe for a little skit that Kimmel wrote. Folks, this is as close to an actual reunion of Friends as we are likely ever to get. Click the embed above to watch this Friends reunion. It’s a video that is deffo worth your time.
I know why the caged bird SCREAMS
Thus far we have seen 3 teaser videos for the upcoming new season of American Horror Story: Freak Show (the first two teasers are HERE, the third teaser is HERE) and today, we get to see another freaky teaser. This time around, a cage is involved in the latest video promo. Click the embed above and find out why the caged bird screams.
Something to tide you over until his album is released next month
In early July we learned that the incomparable Ryan Adams will be releasing a new, self-titled solo album in September but today, I’ve got something for you fans too anxious to wait for the album to drop. Ryan has also released an EP of punk songs on 7″ vinyl that includes 10 songs that should tide us over until his full length album is released on September 9. Click the embed above to hear his new EP 1984 in full. It really is a great collection of songs. If this is what his EP sounds like, I can wait to hear what the full-length album sounds like.
