  1. Sakkari then fought off five break points in a near 10-minute seventh game but the 18-year-old Raducanu would not be denied and went on to seal the match to set up a final against fellow teen Leylah Fernandez of Canada. Emma Raducanu of Great Britain defeats Maria Sakkari of Greece in US Open semifinal(USA TODAY Sports) British teen Emma Raducanu became the first qualifier to reach a Grand Slam final by beating Greece's Maria Sakkari 6-1 6-4 in her U.S. Open semi-final on Thursday. With British tennis royalty Tim Henman and Virginia Wade looking on, Raducanu fended off seven break points across her first two service games and capitalized on a trio of double faults from Sakkari on the way to a 5-0 lead in the first set. Down a break in the second set, Sakkari then fought off five break points in a near 10-minute seventh game but the 18-year-old Raducanu would not be denied the victory and went on to seal the match and set up a final against 19-year-old Canadian Leylah Fernandez. "Honestly, the time here in New York has gone so fast," she said. "I've just been taking care of each day, and before you know three weeks later, I'm in the final and I can't actually believe it." Raducanu has not dropped a set in New York and completely outmatched 17th seed Sakkari, who reached the semi-final at Roland Garros this year. The Greek had 33 unforced errors in the one hour and 24-minute match and struggled mightily with her first serve. Raducanu, who electrified British tennis with her run to the fourth round of Wimbledon, has been embraced by the rowdy crowds in New York and beamed up at the stands inside Arthur Ashe Stadium after closing out the match with a forehand winner. "Since I've been in New York for my first round qualies match I've had unbelievable support in New York and you guys have made me feel right at home," she said. "I was just so excited to come out here and play in front of you guys." Raducanu now has the chance to become the first British woman to win a Grand Slam since Wade won Wimbledon in 1977.
  2. Mbappe picked up the injury during France's 1-1 World Cup qualifying draw against Bosnia last week and missed Les Bleus's two other games against Ukraine and Finland. PSG's Mbappe (in frame) expected to be fit for Clermont, Messi and Neymar out(AP) Lionel Messi and Neymar will miss Paris St Germain's Ligue 1 game against Clermont on Saturday having just returned from international duty but Kylian Mbappe is expected to be in their squad after recovering from a calf injury. Mbappe picked up the injury during France's 1-1 World Cup qualifying draw against Bosnia last week and missed Les Bleus's two other games against Ukraine and Finland. PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino, however, was confident he would play at the Parc des Princes for the first time since the transfer window closed amid media reports he was willing to join Real Madrid. "Kylian is happy, he is emotionally stable and before the end of the transfer window he stayed in a positive mindset," Pochettino told a news conference. "He wants to play football and enjoy himself. He has been training and recovering well so we hope he will be involved with the squad." PSG, who have a maximum 12 points after four games, also welcome back defender Presnel Kimpembe and striker Mauro Icardi after both shook off injuries. Icardi's availability is all the more important with Messi and Neymar out after playing World Cup qualifiers with Argentina and Brazil overnight. "Those players played in the early morning so Leandro Paredes, Lionel Messi and Neymar are not going to be involved with the squad tomorrow, it's common sense," said Pochettino. Messi, who netted a hat-trick in Argentina's 3-0 victory against Bolivia, has only played half an hour with PSG this season after joining as a free agent on a two-year deal from Barcelona. Pochettino added that he had not yet decided who would start as goalkeeper with Keylor Navas having played every match so far at the expense of the newly-recruited Gianluigi Donnarumma, who led Italy to the European title in July.
  3. Valtteri Bottas edged out Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton and championship leader Max Verstappen at the Temple of Speed on Friday night in the return of sprint qualifying for the Italian Grand Prix. Pole position qualifier Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes GP (Getty) Valtteri Bottas edged out Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton and championship leader Max Verstappen at the Temple of Speed on Friday night in the return of sprint qualifying for the Italian Grand Prix. Bottas’ final flying lap saw him beat Hamilton by .096 seconds in a qualifying session that set the grid for Formula One's second-ever sprint, which will determine the starting lineup for Sunday’s main race. Red Bull driver Verstappen was .411 behind the Finn. Bottas, who is leaving Mercedes at the end of the season for Alfa Romeo, will start at the back of the grid on Sunday as he is going to take a new power unit and will receive a penalty for doing so. Sprint qualifying had its debut at Silverstone, where Hamilton was fastest in qualifying but Verstappen topped the seven-time world champion in the sprint to take pole for the British GP. Rather than the standard format of two practices on Friday and a third practice and qualifying on Saturday, there was one practice on Friday followed by the qualifying session that determined the grid for Saturday’s sprint. There is a second practice on Saturday too. The sprints will be over 100 kilometers and the top three finishers will also receive points toward the championship. First place will receive three points, second place two points, and third place one point. Verstappen won the Netherlands GP on Sunday and the Red Bull driver moved three points ahead of seven-time world champion Hamilton. Should Hamilton win Saturday’s sprint and Verstappen finish fourth or worst, the two will start Sunday’s race level at the top. Lando Norris will start Saturday’s sprint in fourth position, just ahead of Daniel Ricciardo and Pierre Gasly - last year’s shock winner at Monza. Carlos Sainz was seventh, with Ferrari teammate - and 2019 winner - Charles Leclerc eighth quickest at the Italian team’s home circuit. Sergio Pérez and Antonio Giovinazzi round out the top 10. Hamilton was quickest in practice earlier Friday, ahead of Verstappen and Bottas. Verstappen has a poor record at Monza, where he has never set foot on the iconic podium. His highest finish is fifth. In contrast, Hamilton is a five-time winner at the Temple of Speed and has three more podiums.
  4. André 3000 has responded to the "unfortunate" leak of his Kanye West collaboration, "Life of the Party," the previously unreleased Donda outtake that seems to take shots at Drake. Drake played "Life of the Party," which had originally been previewed at one of Kanye's Donda events but ultimately didn't make the final cut of the album, this weekend in a guest DJ mix on SiriusXM. In a statement obtained by Billboard, André 3000 explained that when he contributed his verse to "Life of the Party," his intent was to support Donda's concept in tribute to his own late mother, and that he was not a part of the diss that ended up on the song. Drake Fans Feud Flames By Leaking Kanye West/André 3000 Collab 'Life of the Party' “A few weeks ago Kanye reached out about me being a part of the Donda album," said the Outkast rapper, who was in Cleveland filming a Noah Baumbach film when they made contact. "I was inspired by his idea to make a musical tribute to his mom. It felt appropriate to me to support the Donda concept by referencing my own mother, who passed away in 2013. We both share that loss. I thought it was a beautiful choice to make a clean album but, unfortunately, I didn’t know that was the plan before I wrote and recorded my verse. It was clear to me that an edited ‘clean’ format of the verse would not work without having the raw, original also available. So, sadly, I had to be omitted from the original album release." He continued, "The track I received and wrote to didn’t have the diss verse on it and we were hoping to make a more focused offering for the Donda album but I guess things happen like they are supposed to. It’s unfortunate that it was released in this way and two artists that I love are going back and forth." "I wanted to be on Certified Lover Boy too," he pointed out. "I just want to work with people that inspire me. Hopefully I can work with Kendrick on his album. I’d love to work with Lil’ Baby, Tyler and Jay-Z. I respect them all." Fans Think Drake Trampled Kanye in '7am on Bridle Path' Lyrics From 'CLB' On "Life of the Party," Kanye says, "I put Virgil and Drake on the same text and it wasn’t about the matching Arc'teryx or Kid Cudi dress / Just told these grown men stop it with the funny shit," referencing designer Virgil Abloh and the pre-pandemic fashion moment when Drake and Abloh posed together wearing the same camouflage Arc'teryx jackets. "Thought we was the new Abu Dhabi / Told Drake don't play with me on GD and he sent that message to everybody / So if I hit you with a WYD, you better hit me with, 'Yessir, I'm writing everything you need.'" Certified Lover Boy, Drake's just-released album, includes a track that seemingly targets Kanye. "7am on Bridle Path" has him rapping, "Get that address to your driver, make it your destination / instead of just a post out of desperation," presumably referencing the incident when West shared Drake's Toronto address on social media. The same day Drake brought "Life of the Party" to SiriusXM, he left a comment about "waste removal" on Instagram. This video file cannot be played. (Error Code: 102404)
  5. "My heart has been waiting for this moment," Maluma told a roaring crowd at The Forum on Friday (Sept. 3). It was the second show of his Papi Juancho Tour, which he kicked off on Thursday in Sacramento, Calif., after not touring for 18 months. Waiting until every single person made their way to their seat -- the lines to get into the venue moved at an exceptionally slow pace -- the Colombian star kicked off his 90-minute set at 10 p.m. Giving off Matrix vibes with an all-black outfit that included a long black coat and dark sunglasses, Maluma appeared onstage with a smile from ear to ear, taking in the cheers and applause from the thousands of fans that gathered to watch Papi Juancho perform. He kicked off the performance with his global smash hit, "Hawái." In the middle of the set, he stopped and let the more than 15,000 people in the crowd sing an entire verse from the song as he stood there in admiration. "I f---ing missed you guys," he said, visibly emotional. ARTIST MENTIONED Maluma Maluma Is Getting His Own Madame Tussauds Wax Figure: See Him Pose for the Figure Working the in-the-round or 360-style stage, which allowed for more interaction with fans from every corner, Maluma went on to perform other chart-topping tracks such as "Corazón," "Borró Cassette," "Felices Los 4" and "Chantaje." Here are five takeaways from Maluma's sold-out show at The Forum from his Papi Juancho Tour. Heart to Heart Before Maluma took center stage, a pounding heart was projected onto a white rectangular canvas that was erected in the middle of the stage as a narrator told the story of Juan Luis (Maluma's real name) and his journey that's been filled with emotion, passion, joy and music: "He's always been Juan Luis and has given you his heart. Now, it's time to give him yours." Then it was Maluma's turn to speak: "My heart has been waiting for this moment. Today, I give you mi corazón." A Melancholic Maluma Mid-concert, Maluma -- by this point he had ditched the long black coat and opted for black slacks and a fitted black sleeveless T-shirt to show off his bulky arms -- reflected on tough moments during the pandemic, asking fans to enjoy their loved ones while they're still alive. "I have everything right now. I feel so blessed. But there were many lessons learned during this difficult time," he said. "During the pandemic, many things happened and one of those things was this song that is so special. Without a doubt, it's my favorite song from my Papi Juancho album. I want to sing it for all of you tonight." With just a piano in tow, he serenaded fans with "AMDV," the ballad that peaked at No. 14 on Billboard's Hot Latin Songs chart (dated July 10, 2020). See Which Maluma Video Just Entered YouTube's Billion Views Club Jamaican Vibes In an ode to his #7DJ (7 Days in Jamaica) EP, Maluma performed all seven tracks from the set while smoking hookah and surrounded by his troupe of dancers, who wore neon orange leotards. Following the exact order from his EP, the medley kicked off with "Tonika" and ended with "Peligrosa." Oldies but Goodies Maluma may have kicked off the concert with some of his newer material -- such as "Hawái," "Parce" and "Madrid," all off his 2020 Papi Juancho album -- but fans also got to sing along to some of his slightly older anthems, such as "Felices Los 4," "Vente Pa'Ca," "Chantaje" and "Cuatro Babys." COVID-19 Mandates Before entering The Forum, you had to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test. Once inside, staff and/or security walked around the venue with a sign that read "mask must be worn." If you weren't wearing a mask, they would promptly ask you to put it back on. In Los Angeles County, everyone, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a mask in all indoor public settings, including venues. Maluma continues with his Papi Juancho Tour Saturday night in Las Vegas.
  6. Guitarist Jimmy Page says he turned down a lot of “pretty miserable” pitches over the years to make a documentary about Led Zeppelin. But he finally bit when he received a deeply-researched proposal focusing almost exclusively on the music and chronicling the band’s birth in 1968 and its meteoric early rise. The result is Becoming Led Zeppelin, one of the most eagerly anticipated documentaries at the Venice Film Festival, which made its premiere Saturday (Sept. 4) with Page on the red carpet. Producers Bernard MacMahon and Allison McGourty — avowed Zeppelin fans — obtained never-before-seen footage of some of the band’s early U.S. and British concerts as well as an astonishing audio interview that drummer John Bonham gave to an Australian journalist before he died in 1980. ARTIST MENTIONED Led Zeppelin 'Becoming Led Zeppelin' Rock Doc Added to Venice Lineup The interview, concert footage and other archive material are spliced into contemporary interviews with the three surviving band members — Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones — to create a montage that maps the frenetic first two years of the band’s existence and its early musical influences. MacMahon, who along with McGourty launched the PBS American Epic documentary series, said it took a year to locate the Bonham recording, after hearing a bootleg version of the interview on a vinyl record. From the sound, he knew that it had been converted into a quarter-inch tape. He then “went to every Australian journalist that we knew from that era saying do you recognize this voice? Because the journalist doesn’t identify himself.” “Eventually I tracked down someone who said, ‘We know who it was but he died.’” MacMahon then drew on previous contacts he had with a sound archive in Canberra, Australia, which went through “30,000 unmarked reels” to find the one with the interview. He went to similar lengths to get full concert recordings of the songs as performed, sometimes finding reels of uncut songs that had never before been seen. He said he went to such lengths because he wanted the film to essentially be a musical interspersed with interviews. Page said he particularly appreciated the focus on the music — the songs are played at full-length, not just snippets. And it lets the band members tell their own story in their own words. There are no other on-camera interviews. Page said he agreed to the producers’ pitch after he received a leather-bound storyboard mapping out the movie as they had researched it and envisaged it. “When we first met we were probably a little nervous of each other. But the conduit was the storyboard,” Page said. “And I thought they’ve really got it, they really understand what it was about.” He said he had received plenty of proposals over the years to tell Led Zeppelin’s story, but “they were pretty miserable. Miserable and also to the point where they would want to be concentrating on anything but the music.” “This one, it’s everything about the music, and what made the music tick,” he said. “It’s not just a sample of it with a talking head. This is something in a totally different genre.”
  7. While more major releases are actually getting released these days, the studios are still not entirely confident when it comes to the box office. In most cases this has meant hybrid releases, with movies coming out on streaming services at the same time they open in theaters. But for those studios that don't have that option, the box office is all there is. This is why we're still seeing major films delayed, as there is continued hope that at some point in the nebulous future, things will be better. Venom: Let There Be Carnage is one film that has continued to be delayed, but despite rumors, it may not be getting pushed back any further. The Venom sequel has been delayed twice this year alone. Back in March it was pushed from June of this year into September. Then earlier this month that September date was pushed back another month into October. However, almost as soon as the most recent delay happened, rumors began to swirl that the movie would get pushed yet again, this time into early 2022. These rumors started to pick up steam just this week when Sony's CinemaCon presentation did not include any news or footage of the movie. However, Variety is now saying that rumors of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, being pushed back yet again are untrue, citing an unnamed "studio insider." One can usually trust Variety on such things, and so it would seem that those who are waiting for the sequel to come won't have to wait any longer than they do now. Hopefully it's just a couple more months and Venom 2 will be here.
  8. One of the things about people spending more time at home alone or at least spending more time in spaces that don’t feature a slew of people is that fashion has changed. Work outfits were replaced by workout outfits, leisurewear, and yes, plenty of days without pants. Now, it seems Age of Adeline star and Free Guy contributor Blake Lively has become the latest celebrity to jump on the trend as she went pants-free for a birthday-oriented photo shoot. Taking to her Instagram Story, the star shared a look at a pretty dreamy handbag she nabbed as part of her birthday festivities. She seems like a person who has a birthday week and not a birthday day, as she's been sharing some birthday-related stuff across the last few days, although her actual birthday is August 25. Anyway, the bag-related post was her latest birthday-oriented share, but I bet ya aren't actually looking at the bag... Pants free Blake Lively for her birthday Blake Lively seems to be a big fan of her birthday -- who isn't? -- as she also shared separate posts celebrating in a dreamy and romantic green dress from Teuta Matoshi that I now covet. The bag was just the icing on the cake, but it seems as if she took the photo in a bit of a hurry on a day that pants were optional. She's not the first celebrity to go pants-free over the last year, and I doubt she'll be the last. In general, the pants-free thing started out as kind of a joke. There were stories rolling around online when some companies went remote about people putting on work shirts and going pants-free for video meetings. It got to the point where a Snickers ad and even celebrities including Tom Holland got into the idea, with the latter famously doing an interview pants-free. The White Lotus actress Alexandra Daddario joked about why we ever wore pants in the first place. Then it sort of became a lifestyle, as Halle Berry and others embraced that pants-free life.
  9. With the eighth and final season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine currently airing on NBC, fans might have thought Andy Samberg might have an opening in his schedule, however brief. But no, even beyond his upcoming voice-acting roles, Samberg has already lined up a new in-the-flesh gig. To make the new job even sweeter, he's joining fellow Saturday Night Live vet Maya Rudolph, and the two comedy stars will headline a new streaming series for Peacock, though possibly not one fans might expect. NBCUniversal has announced that Maya Rudolph and Andy Samberg will be hosting a holiday-themed baking competition series Baking It, which will serve as a companion project to the Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman-hosted crafting competition Making It. The new oven-baked show will stream on Peacock, however, instead following in the original's footsteps on NBC. Seeing as how it's a companion to Making It, it's no surprise that fellow SNL alum Poehler will serve as an executive producer of Baking It, along with Making It producer Nicolle Yaron. Baking It will feature eight teams of talented home bakers competing against each other across six different holiday-themed episodes hosted by Maya Rudolph and Andy Samberg from within the winter cabin motif. Each hopeful's confections will be judged by the indiscriminate taste buds of four real-life grandmothers to see which teams will move onto the next phase, and which will be tossed out with yesterday's bagels. Of course, in true SNL fashion, Rudolph and Samberg will offer funny side commentary during moments both intense and lighthearted while hosting the highly competitive bake-off. Watching people baking holiday treats under immense pressure is genuinely entertaining for many viewers, or else we might not have quite so many options to choose from in that highly specific TV genre. But the real draw of this particular show will be watching Maya Rudolph and Andy Samberg interact throughout the episodes. Just giving those two microphones alone seems like prime material for hilarity for viewers, regardless of what they're talking about. (And probably expect things to get a little sophomoric and silly by way gross dough noises, melting chocolate mounds, and all the grandmas.) Given the built-in camaraderie from all the SNL talent, there’s no telling what kind of viral moments will come from Rudolph and Samberg's hosting partnership. Add Amy Poehler in the mix, and things are bound to be gut-busting, so we can only hope that Baking It will be anywhere near as entertaining as Poehler and Nick Offerman are on Making It. Currently, it is unknown when Baking It will premiere on Peacock. Until then, viewers can catch Andy Samberg in the final season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which is currently airing two-episodes blocks every Thursday night on NBC starting at 8:00 p.m. Moviegoers can currently hear Maya Rudolph’s voice in Netflix’s hit film The Mitchells vs. Machines and Disney+’s animated film Luca, while Samberg will pop up in Hotel Transylvania: Transformania and the Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers movie.
  10. After months of waiting, the first trailer for Jon Watts' Spider-Man: No Way Home has finally arrived. The trailer is already breaking records, as the limited footage offers some answers, but inspires even more questions. Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange certainly made an impact during his appearance, although he's been the subject of much debate online. Namely, would Strange actually cast that spell for Peter Parker? And the internet has thoughts. The first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home confirmed that the multiverse is in play, seemingly due to a spell gone awry by Doctor Strange. The footage shows him willing to make the entire world forget they know Peter Parker's superhero identity, before Tom Holland's characters starts interrupting him mid-spell. Some Marvel fans think this might be an alternate version of Strange entirely, posting on Twitter: Well, my mind is blown. Clearly Phase Four and Five of the MCU are going to be focusing on the use of the multiverse. This should open a ton of narrative doors, but it'll also be fodder for countless fan theories. That includes the idea that Doctor Strange's spell was so out of character that it might have been variant all along. Is your head spinning yet? The MCU has found its streaming home on Disney+. You can use this link to sign up for the streaming service. The discourse around Spider-Man: No Way Home has been fascinating to watch, as there are also plenty of moviegoers who think Doctor Strange's spell is actually very much in character. After all, Benedict Cumberbatch's hero is known for have a massive ego. As journalist Alisha Grauso put it on social media: This contrast in opinion is likely while Spider-Man: No Way Home's trailer already has over 40 million views at the time of writing this story. There's a ton to unpack from this limited footage, the least of which being Doctor Strange. Both Alfred Molina and Willem Dafoe are seemingly back as their signature villains, and fans are still left wondering about Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's rumored roles. Aside from the debate about Doctor Strange's motivations during his big Spider-Man: No Way Home spell, some fans are surprised that the Sorcerer Supreme could even be distracted by the likes of Peter Parker. After all, he's an extremely powerful magic user with a genius level intellect. As one fan reacted, Considering the events of Loki and WandaVision, there are countless theories about the multiverse. And with Spider-Man: No Way Home definitely going into that territory, fans are trying to connect the movie to those Disney+ shows. As such, some fans think that Doctor Strange's spell snafu occurs as similarly apocalyptic events happened on the small screen. Check it out below. As is the case with every new Marvel release, the trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home was also fodder for countless memes across social media. Doctor Strange was the subject for much of these funny reactions, especially thanks to his interaction with Benedict Wong's character Wong. His fellow Sorcerer urges Strange NOT to do that spell... but we know how that worked out. While footage for Spider-Man: No Way Home is limited, it's clear that the moviegoing public is very invested in what we've been shown. Luckily, Tom Holland's third solo flick is only a few months away. And as we get closer to its Holiday release, we should hopefully be treated to more trailers. Although smart money says there will still be plenty of more questions. Spider-Man: No Way Home is currently set to arrive in theaters on December 17th. In the meantime, check out the 2021 movie release dates to plan your next movie experience.
  11. Have you ever pictured yourself as a rock legend? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a musical superstar, belting a song out on the world stage? Well, Alter Ego will give several music lovers the rare opportunity to live out their wildest dreams, albeit in an extremely unorthodox way. In the spirit of American Idol and The Masked Singer, Fox produced a reality singing competition series that promises to be unlike anything we've seen before, and we don't have long to wait. The bizarre new series will premiere in September, and we have a bunch of information about this upcoming show, which we'll share with you now. Here's what we know about Alter Ego. Fox’s Alter Ego’s Premiere Date Is Set For September 22, 2021 We're a little over a month away from the series premiere of Fox's intriguingly off-kilter competition series, Alter Ego. Set to air on September 22nd at 9 p.m. EST, this show will make its big debut right after The Masked Singer's Season 6 premiere at 8 p.m. EST. It should be noted that Alter Ego's premiere is a two-day event, with the second episode scheduled to air on September 23rd at the same time. Set your DVR accordingly. The Reality Competition Series Sees Music Superstar Hopefuls Performing As Their Dream Avatars Television remains one of the most accessible forms of escapism, allowing audiences to get immersed in other people's fortunes — or even misfortunes — over the course of several weeks or months. With Alter Ego, Fox invites viewers to see an alternate reality of sorts, where music lovers with aspirations of fame (or maybe infamy) can live out their grandest dreams through an avatar that allows their imagination to soar — all in front of the world. It's a strange but certainly unique idea for a show, and one that could repeat the odd and unlikely success of Fox's ongoing fan favorite, The Masked Singer. Alter Ego’s Judge Panel Includes Alanis Morissette, Grimes,, And Nick Lachey Fox has lofty expectations with this new reality competition series, and that's apparent from Alter Ego's all-star judge panel. Seated at the table are Alanis Morissette, Grimes,, and Nick Lachey, providing an eclectic variety of musicians for this unique reality series. More specifically, Morisette is mostly known for her best-selling album, Jagged Little Pill, Grimes is a genre-defying artist with five distinct albums to her name, is the artist best known for founding and leading the Black Eyed Peas, and Lachey was a member of 98 Degrees who found fame through his infamous marriage with Jessica Simpson and their MTV reality series, Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica. Hopefully, the diversity of their styles will result in a wide-ranging wealth of insights. The New Competition Show Is Hosted By Rocsi Diaz At the forefront of Fox's newest competition show is Rocsi Diaz, a television and radio personality who's best known as the co-host of BET's 106 & Park. Additionally, Diaz was a correspondent on Entertainment Tonight for two years and she was the host of VH1's Dating Naked. Currently, she co-hosts USA's competition series, Cannonball, and she keeps herself busy with plenty of other projects. Certainly, if Alter Ego finds the same success as The Masked Singer or American Idol, it's easy to see this brand new show becoming Diaz's most high-profile credit yet — even with two decades of TV experience. Alter Ego Comes From Dancing With The Stars Executive Producer Matilda Zoltowski Matilda Zoltwoski might not be a name you recognize, but you've certainly seen her work — especially if you love competition shows. Most notably, she was a co-executive producer on ABC's Dancing with the Stars. More recently, Zoltowski became a writer and executive producer behind NBC's World of Dance. Her other TV credits include Bring the Funny, The Taste, and Betty White's Off Their Rockers, to name a few credits. Now, Zoltwoski leads the charge of this intriguing, almost inexplicable singing series. Grimes Has A Lot To Say About This Show’s Concept Grimes has a unique perspective on the music industry and the world-at-large, to say the very least. The singular singer-songwriter is known to combine many different sounds and diverging styles into her music, producing original work that's not beholden to any one genre. Likewise, the artist doesn't believe we need to be "bound by [our] age or gender" or even our bodies in order to live out our musical fantasies. Certainly, Alter Ego wants to test what's possible when it comes to fulfilling one's musical aspirations in a non-traditional manner, and Grimes believes that this reality show might welcome us to a "new reality" where we can "live out the potential of our brains." Hmm... Certainly, Grimes has very lofty ambitions for this show; we'll see if they're lived out soon enough. Here's what Grimes told Billboard: " No one has a body, and no one is bound by their age or gender or anything like that. I’ve been really enjoying that, because we’ve lived in a society for so long where you’re stuck in the shell that you’re in, and you just have to deal with it. We might be about to enter a new reality where we can all live to the potential of our brains. As a woman in the industry, I don’t give a fuck about how I look. I hate thinking about that. I literally don’t care, and it takes so much time, and it’s expensive. We could really democratize things. All of these things give me a lot of optimism about the future. " Alter Ego’s Teaser Shows Us The World’s First Avatar Singing Competition Series For better or worse, Alter Ego is the type of show that you need to see to believe. It's hard to contextualize what exactly this ambitious new competition series is gonna be, and this teaser only gives us a vague idea of what we'll see in this out-of-body musical reality competition series. When the upcoming show premieres this fall, we'll have a much better understanding of its premise, style, and tone, but for now, you can get an intriguing (and admittedly sorta perplexing) early glimpse in the baffling promo below:
  12. Grey’s Anatomy shocked fans last season by bringing back a slew of fan favorites who had gone to the big hospital in the sky. Meredith Grey was reunited with her late husband Derek, George “007” O’Malley, her sister Lexie, and Mark Sloan via beach hallucinations that ran throughout much of Season 17. And it looks like Grey’s is continuing the trend of bringing back the dead for the upcoming season as well, at least with one character. Kate Burton, who plays Meredith’s mother Ellis Grey, will return for Grey’s Anatomy Season 18, as reported by Deadline. Burton is set to return for multiple episodes, beginning with the Season 18 premiere. She has made guest appearances on 23 episodes of the ABC medical drama, earning two Emmy nominations for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for the role. On Grey’s Anatomy, Ellis Grey had a complicated relationship with her daughter, Meredith. The world-famous surgeon put work ahead of being a mother. She left Meredith’s father to pursue an affair with Richard Webber, and when he did not leave his wife, Ellis attempted suicide in front of her child. As an adult, Meredith struggled to live up to her mother’s legendary status all while watching Ellis Grey’s deteriorating condition as she suffered from Alzheimer’s. Ellis Grey died in Season 3. Regardless of their struggles, when Meredith gave birth to a daughter following Derek’s death, she named the baby Ellis after her mother. Depending on the nature of Kate Burton’s return, Ellis Grey’s appearances might mean more for Maggie Pierce, who was revealed in Season 10 to be the love child of Ellis and Richard Webber. Ellis had put Maggie up for adoption without Richard’s knowledge of the pregnancy, and by the time Maggie tracked down her birth parents, Ellis was dead. If Maggie is in fact involved in Ellis’ return, it could be a huge emotional arc for the newlywed, as Maggie suffered greatly from the death of her adopted mother in Season 11. It remains to be seen if Ellis Grey will return in flashbacks, or if she’ll appear in hallucinations, as Grey’s Anatomy has done with multiple characters – including Denny Duquette (a role that "changed my life," according to Jeffrey Dean Morgan), who appeared to Izzie Stevens when she suffered from a brain tumor; and Andrew DeLuca, whose spirit appeared in a couple of episodes following his shocking Season 17 murder. Whichever way we get Ellis Grey back, I really hope we’re done with Meredith’s COVID hallucinations. The gimmick was a fun way to bring back some familiar faces, but it’s time to dust the sand off and leave the beach in Season 17. Along with Grey’s Anatomy, Kate Burton also starred on the Shonda Rhimes drama Scandal, playing Sally Langston. More recently the Broadway star can be seen as Celeste on CW’s reboot of Charmed. Grey’s Anatomy returns to ABC on September 30 in its regular 9 p.m. ET time slot. Be sure to check out our 2021 Fall TV schedule to keep up with the return of all your favorite shows.

The DC Extended Universe grew last week with James Gunn’s R-rated romp The Suicide Squad. The blockbuster hit both theaters and arrived straight to homes via HBO Max. And Gunn recently compared his DC debut to Jaws while discussing The Suicide Squad’s unique release strategy. The Suicide Squad has been in theaters for a week now, with James Gunn’s blockbuster continuing to make headlines for the foreseeable future. There’s been some talk about the movie’s box office performance, as theatrical releases have yet to live up to money making potential from the pre-COVID times. This is especially true for projects that are also available to stream from home. Gunn explained his perspective on The Suicide Squad’s release while referencing Jaws, saying: " I don’t really care that much. I really just care about whatever the project is in front of me. The Suicide Squad is made to be seen first and foremost on a big screen. I think it’s gonna work just fine on television. Listen, movies don’t last because they’re seen on the big screen. Movies last because they’re seen on television. Jaws isn’t still a classic because people are watching it in theaters. I’ve never seen Jaws in a movie theater. It’s one of my favorite movies. " The man’s got a point. All movies, no matter how much money they make at the box office, eventually close their theatrical window. As such, classics like Jaws or Star Wars: A New Hope become classics because they’re watched over and over again-- being passed down from generation to generation via home release. So The Suicide Squad has the potential to have a legacy, despite many viewing James Gunn’s debut from the comfort of their own homes via HBO Max. James Gunn’s comments to Variety show the mature way he’s approaching The Suicide Squad’s release during these unprecedented times. Throughout his process working on his DC debut, Gunn has been open about how much freedom and fun he’d had with Task Force X. Because of this artistic satisfaction, he’s likely able to look at the movie’s two-tier release and box office numbers with clarity. And he’s seemingly not phased with The Suicide Squad being available to stream during its time in theaters. The Suicide Squad is currently available on HBO Max for a limited time. You can use this link to sign up for the streaming service. Jaws is just one example of a classic movie where the majority of moviegoers out there haven’t actually seen it on the big screen. That hasn’t stopped Steven Spielberg’s 1975 classic from continuing to pierce the pop culture zeitgeist, especially every summer. So while The Suicide Squad might have been watched on televisions and other devices, that doesn’t mean the new movie won’t have an impact on the DCEU and industry as a whole. The discourse around The Suicide Squad has been interesting, as there’s always a ton of online discussion with each new DCEU installment. In addition to the film’s contents, there’s also clearly been chatter about how much money it managed to make at the box office. Smart money says that continues until the next installment in the DC universe arrives. The Suicide Squad is in theaters and HBO Max.

  15. Courtney Love has delivered a moving acoustic cover of Britney Spears' 2000 song "Lucky" as part of her ongoing covers series. The former Hole singer took to Instagram on Saturday (July 3) to share her take on the ballad, which appeared on Spears' second album, Oops!... I Did it Again. The cover arrived shortly after The New Yorker published an in-depth article about Spears' conservatorship, which features quotes from Love. "Someone asked me what song I was going to cover next. I don't have a guitar player handy, so yeah," a pink-haired Love begins video, pointing to herself. "It's written by one of those fantastic old Swedish people -- gentleman -- and it's got like B-sharp 7th. I don't know that s---. OK, let's just try it." ARTISTS MENTIONED Britney Spears Courtney Love Courtney Love Accuses Olivia Rodrigo of Copying Hole Album Cover Concept for 'Sour Prom' Photos Performing the ballad proved to be emotional for Love, who has also covered Billy Bragg and Wilco's "California Stars" as part of her series.

Written by Max Martin, Rami Yacoub and Alexander Kronlund, "Lucky" peaked at No. 23 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2000. In The New Yorker piece, written by Ronan Farrow and Jia Tolentino, Love describes her ex-manager Sam Lutfi -- who served in a similar capacity for Spears around 2007 -- as a "street hustler." Love later congratulated Farrow and Tolentino on Twitter, writing, "An honor to speak to an honorable man. Speak again soon." She added to the post, "#freebritneyarmy do your thing."
