It feels like summer is just speeding by, and I haven’t done even half of the things I wanted to do.
Settle in on the sofa for this week’s first offering, but be forewarned that some of its festive scenes may get you in the mood to jump up and bust some moves.
Many of us know about the pressure on single folks to get married.
Of course, we know what happens as a result. Love a romantic comedy!
It’s streaming on Netflix.
‘Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head’
It’s the revival you may not have even known you needed.
There are some updates, of course, but the guys are still just as dim-witted as ever. Get ready for the nostalgia and the fun.
‘Sweet Life: Los Angeles’ Season 2
Issa Rae is always giving us a slice of African American life.
Naturally, it’s not all a bed of roses — it is television, after all — but this coming-of-age show offers lots of opportunity to witness growth.
The second season of “Sweet Life: Los Angeles” is streaming on HBO Max, which is owned by CNN’s parent company.
Two things to listen to
Calvin Harris could have a music festival just with the artists featured on his latest project.
“Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2” features collaborations with the likes of Justin Timberlake, Dua Lipa, Normani, Offset, Halsey, Pharrell and Snoop Dogg, to name a few.
The album dropped Friday.
Slim Shady has hits.
Eminem is releasing “Curtain Call 2,” the second volume of his greatest hits.
“Curtain Call 2” will include music from all Eminem projects starting from 2009’s “Relapse,” including songs from various side projects, guest appearances and film soundtracks.
One thing to talk about
As the daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, the teen had her choice of schools. And by choosing one of the best known of the historically Black colleges and universities to matriculate at, she brings a great deal of attention to the liberal arts college.
Her mother proudly announced Jolie-Pitt’s choice on social media, and the excitement for her was palpable.
I get it, as I count several Spelman graduates as good friends. A supportive sisterhood awaits Jolie-Pitt.
Good luck to her and all the incoming freshmen across the nation this semester.
Something to sip on
Inclusion isn’t just about race.
After complaints that the song “Heated” contained a term that is derogatory to people with spastic cerebral palsy, reps for the singer confirmed that “the word, not used intentionally in a harmful way, will be replaced.”
Addressing these concerns goes beyond good public relations. It’s an example to us all about the need for sensitivity.
