Everything was not as poppin’ as it should be. First of all, we love Katy Perry dearly, but she should never again be allowed to host any awards show. She is corny, not  funny, and would have served better doing more performances last night to give the people a taste of what her upcoming tour will look like. Still, the performances saved the show. Kendrick Lamar was the superhero of performances last night visually, performing two of his hit singles, DNA and Humble. Check out his performance below!

Pink, the recipient of the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award, stayed true to her style and performed in the air–atop a convertible, albeit! Her medley of past hits definitely oozed with early 2000’s nostalgia. Still we wish she would have done some of her more historic hits like most Girls and Just Like A Pill. You can catch her acceptance speech below!

Other highlights of the night include Taylor Swift (even though she did not show up) debuting her new music video, Look What You Made Me Do; a true nod to the VMAs and consisting of past and present versions of herself.

We love how Nicki Minaj finally jumped in on a performance when she and Katy did Swish Swish. We definitely think it’s time for the former to debut a new album though, some of these other female rappers are “Making money moves!”

The night was full of amazement and we want to congratulate all the winners! Check them out on the next page!

Just when we thought we were saying farewell to Netflix’s hit series, Chewing Gum, writer and star, Michaela Coel informs us that the series is NOT cancelled and will return for a third season!

Earlier this year Michaela stated the series was ending, citing the show had reached its creative peek. However, just today she revealed the good news about Chewing Gum via Twitter.

She went on to say she never talked to any publication or journalist about the future of the series.

Honestly, we really do not care who said what! We are just glad one of our favorite series is coming back for a third season. The world would be a much less funny place without Tracey Gordon and the rest of her motley crew! There is no word on a premiere date for the new season, but we will keep you posted!

[VIDEO] #Mayhem! We TV’s (@WEtv) New Reality Series, “The Black Book” Cast Fight!

WE TV is definitely home to some of television’s most popular reality series. Braxton Family Values, Mary Mary, Cutting It In The ATL, and Marriage Boot Camp are just a few of them.

However, we happened to be on set of the pilot of WE TV’s latest reality series, The Black Book, and we have to say it was lit!

The Black Book is based on a group of Atlanta authors either making moves in the book industry or beginning to make their mark. The cast consists of virtually unknown authors, but each of them have work and credentials behind their names. Last night, the pilot of the series was filmed in East Atlanta at an event, celebrating the book debut of one the cast members known as Shan. The event started off very peaceful, with most of the guests taking pictures with Shan, networking, and enjoying hors d’oeuvres.

In “real” reality show fashion things quickly became volatile. Apparently a group of women led by another cast member showed up at Shan’s event and quickly became loud and disrespectful. Despite others’ attempts to quell the nonsense mayhem quickly ensued and spilled over into the streets! The police became involved, but we managed to grab this quick video from the fight. Check it out below!

Crazy right? Well we can assure you no one was arrested, but we were there for PR work when all of this broke out. We hope the show will be balanced in its portrayal of the authors, especially with them being Black authors (and our very own Mikey knowing two of them personally off camera). We have enough ratchet reality shows free flowing throughout the Metro Atlanta area. What do you guys think? Will you be tuning in to The Black Book? Just think, this is the pilot episode!

Several months ago, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that the company would be launching its very own streaming service which is expected to launch in 2019. Disney also revealed their intention to produce their own original content for the service, including films and TV series, which leaves Netflix’s Disney produced Marvel shows in an awkward position.

According to a report by the Wall Street Journal (via /Film), any future Marvel shows will play exclusively on Disney’s streaming service, and although there’s no word on whether Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders, and The Punisher will be following them, it’s probably a good bet that they will at some point. The WSJ also confirms that Disney’s attempt to purchase much of Twentieth Century Fox was part of their plan to compete with Netflix. “[W]e’ve turned our attention to the one platform seeing growth challenges,” Disney Chief Strategy Officer Kevin Mayer said in the WSJ article. “That’s the television platform.” Had the Fox deal gone ahead, it would have given Disney control of much of Fox’s TV shows, which they likely would have then moved over to their streaming service. Mayer added that he doesn’t think of Disney’s new service as “an anti-Netflix move,” but rather as a “pro-Disney move.” Bringing all of Disney’s movies and TV shows under one roof won’t be cheap, as the WSJ claims that it will end up costing Disney more then $300 million a year.

Honestly we do not care where the new Marvel shows air as long as Disney keeps making them! It is rumored that new superheroes getting their own shows on Disney’s streaming service will include Moon Knight, Ghost Rider, and Ms. Marvel. We will keep you posted!
