Billy Bob Thornton Gives Insight To FX's Dark Comedy 'Fargo'
It seems as though mini-series are quite a trend today. If you are an avid TV viewer, you are most likely tuning into one every week. That case, you won’t mind to add another show to your list.

Premiering this week is the highly anticipated crime drama, with a dark comedic flare, titled “Fargo.” Does the name ring a bell? You may recall seeing Frances McDormand winning an Oscar for her role in the 1996 movie adaption. “Fargo,” a Coen Brothers’ film, won Best Screenplay at the 1997 Academy Awards as well as was said to have been "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" by the...

Q&A: Nina Nesbitt Is Ready To Conquer The States

March 27th, 2014 2:20pm EDT
Nina Nesbitt
Across the pond there is a singer-songwriter named Nina Nesbitt and she is a force to be reckoned with. The Scotland native currently has over 144,000 Twitter followers and hasn’t even hit national stardom in the United States, yet. Now 19, Nina only picked up a guitar at the age of 15. It’s a good thing she took up playing the guitar because Ed Sheeran, through a chance meeting, asked Nina to play a song for him and, from that moment on, her career took off.

Sheeran took Nina on his European tour and Nesbian fans were born after being hooked on her upbeat, catchy tunes. He even featured h...

5 Fun Facts: 'Veronica Mars' Star Kristen Bell

Veronica Mars
This Friday is a big day. Not only because there are 20 movies releasing, according to, but because a loved show will be revived onto the big screen. All hail for a Veronica Mars reunion. Now slow down on the excitement fans because the movie is only releasing in limited theaters. Bummer, I know. But if it does well, which I’m sure it will because the movie grew from a Kickstarter project (meaning popularity votes,) we can hope to see it nationwide.

The movie, titled the same as the TV show, is set to have most of the original cast. I mean, it wouldn’t be the same without Kr...

Cristin Milioti as The Mother
If you have no idea what "How I Met Your Mother" is, than I don't blame you. Honestly, I didn't even know up until a couple of years ago. But, even though you do not know, you might want to give the show a try. And to the fans, a simple kuddos to you for keeping up.

Why am I trying to get you addicted to HIMYM? Well, because the show is about to end. What perfect time to get hooked, right? Also, the entire show was based on one secret. No show has kept a secret lasting for eight seasons. That secret was revealed in the last season closer. What was the big revelation? Newcomer Cristin Milio...

10 Reasons Why Zooey Deschanel Is Admirable

Zooey D
Here’s a simple task for you. Go out on the street and ask a random person what they like most about Zooey Deschanel? Their answer, if they know of whom you are asking about, will be something positive.

Zooey is your girl next door and, in my opinion, America’s sweetheart. Weird thing is, everyone sees her that way.  Her demeanor is inviting and her quirky personality can strike up one heck of a conversation. But you see, there are quite a few actors in Hollywood that portray themselves as Zooey comes off. Maybe that’s it; they portray themselves whilst Zooey just is...Zooey.

I have taken...

Katy Perry Dethrones Robin Thicke On Billboard Hot 100

Katy Perry
Well done KatyCats and Kitty Purry for replaying “Roar” over and over. The fans and the radio stations across the nation have placed Katy Perry’s single "Roar” at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

As everyone should already know, "Blurred Lines" was the summer jam. The single held the top place on the Hot 100 chart for 12 weeks. I mean, Robin Thicke’s voice just makes any day better. Am I right, or am I right?

But, everyone’s time on the throne must come to an end, and Perry has nudged Thicke aside.

This record breaker puts Katy Perry at 8 Hot 100 No. 1 singles. As a gift to her Ka...

5 Fun Facts: 'Getaway' Star Selena Gomez

August 30th, 2013 11:00am EDT
Selena Gomez
If you’ve never heard of Selena Gomez, you must be living under a rock. I say the girl made a name for herself on her own. I know this because I’ve been a fan of her projects. Others may beg to differ and say her rise to stardom was through a roller coaster ride of a connection to Justin Bieber.

Yes, Bieber was involved with Gomez. Lucky gal? Two years ago, yes. Today, probably not. His recent behavioral changes may be the reason she ran for her life. But running has done her good because the time apart from Bieber gave her free time to focus on her music and landing a role in a feature fi...

'Pretty Little Liars' Season 4 Finale: 'A' Shows Face

PLL Finale
You’re either reading this and already know what happened in the “Pretty Little Liars” summer finale or you are reading this with no intentions of watching. So here it is, the episode’s biggest shocker.

EZRA IS "A!" Check your twitter feed, #EzrA is trending big time. Hello Ian Harding fans.

Take a moment to breathe.

Yes, the show ended with the biggest cliffhanger I have experienced for the entire series. Ezra is shown entering “A’s” lair, a scene that makes it seem as though he is “A” himself. Is this a joke? It couldn’t be. Is this the usual moment of giving the viewers a surprise tha...
