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!

Summer can feel like an eternity when your favorite television series are on hiatus. Thankfully, one of our faves, The CW’s Riverdale has dropped us some new images and even greater news about Archie’s latest nemesis in its upcoming third season!

As you may already know, Season 2 of Riverdale ended with Archie being framed and arrested for murder by his girlfriend, Veronica Lodge’s, father, Hiram. It was a surprising end to a city that saw the denizens of Riverdale take a beating from serial killers and finally local thugs and white collar criminals claimed nearly all of the town for themselves. We do not know much about this upcoming season, but we can assure there is a new baddie on the horizon.

Archie, you in danger gurl.

This season on Riverdale, the ginger hero (KJ Apa) finds himself framed for murder by Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos) and dealing with the town’s prosecutor, Ms. Wright (Penelope Ann Miller). EW has your exclusive first look at Miller in her role.

Given Hiram’s control over most of the town, it feels safe to assume that he might have his hooks into Ms. Wright, too.

Archie and company have their work cut out for themselves if they’re going to save Riverdale! Tune October 10 at 9 PM EST when the new season premieres!

Sinbad, Lil Rel Howery, and Jordan L. Jones in Rel (2018)

The series centers on Rel a male nurse living in Chicago whose wife recently left him after he discovers she cheated on him with his barber. What should be a heartbreaking situation is tempered with laughter when his best friend Brittany (Jessica “Jess Hilarious” Moore) suggests he get back at his barber by getting with his alleged love interest, Monica, nicknamed “Loose Boots Monica.” The laughs ensue further as his younger brother–fresh out of prison–Nat (Jordan L. Jones) and his father (played by Sinbad) clown him just as hard. Rel must pull his life together and endure the ridicule of the community to move on with his life and readjust to being “Rel” again.

Lil Rel is hands down one of the funniest comedians alive and this new series is only the latest come up in his career. From being a local Chicago celebrity, then appearing in his roles on Get Out and Insecure, and now his own self-titled series on FoxRel is easily the Martin (Lawrence) show of our times. Nostalgia is an awesome marketing tool and when you see this series you will easily feel as happy and elated as you did from the great sitcoms of the nineties and early 2000s that also include Living Single, Half & Half, and to a lesser degree All Of Us.

Lil Rel you are seriously making moves man and we love you for it. Catch Rel this Sunday, September 9th right after the football game! Happy viewing!

TNT is expanding its relationship with “Claws” star Niecy Nash.

The cabler has ordered a pilot for a late-night series that Nash will host and executive produce. Currently titled “Naked with Niecy Nash,” the series would see Nash offer advice on love, sex, romance and relationships with everyday people.

Sue Murphy, who served as an executive producer and writer on the Netflix talk show “Chelsea” and as an executive producer on E!’s “Chelsea Lately,” will serve as an executive producer and showrunner on the pilot.

Should the project get ordered to series, it would mark the first late-night series in TNT’s history. Nash would also be one of only two female late-night hosts on network TV, with the other being Samantha Bee, who hosts “Full Frontal” on fellow Turner network TBS.

“I’m so excited to add my voice to the late-night landscape,” said Nash. “Love is the thing we were created for but it’s also the place we struggle the most… until now! This is going to be a fun and sexy ride! TNT is the perfect partner for me in this endeavor! Adding an experienced and amazing executive producer and showrunner like Sue Murphy to this mix was the cherry on top.”

Niecy Nash really is “living her best life” and we are super psyched to see Naked with Niecy Nash! We wonder who her guests will be. There is no doubt her Claws  cast mates will be stopping by and she is also great friends with a number of comedians, including Cedric The Entertainer. Congrats again!
