Love is in the air – beautiful brides, and handsome grooms. Not to mention the open bar. Which is better?
Well, when the party is over, I also love that these days you don’t have to worry about running out of things to watch and listen to.
With that in mind, the premiere in this newsletter happens to feature a husband and wife comedy duo that you might both enjoy.
“God’s Favorite Fool”
Real-life partners Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy star in this comedy series about the man that God can’t use at least to help the world fight Satan and the coming apocalypse.
Falcone and McCarthy have a great partnership in both marriage and career, which makes them worth the admission price on their own. And yes, given everything that’s going on right now, the end of the world might sound weird as a comedy. But believe me – if you like twisting, this is for you.
The show will be streamed on Netflix.
‘Father of the Bride’
Did you get a save date for this?
There have been several adaptations of Father of the Bride, but this is the first with a Latin cast.
Andy Garcia and Gloria Estefan shine in this remake with many modern twists as a married couple less happy than their daughter’s marriage (including a daughter offering marriage and a Zen Center guide as the officials’ first choice). Perfect for the wedding season, right?
The film will be broadcast on HBO Max, which shares a parent company with CNN.
As regular Pop Life readers know, I can’t get enough of the content about the British royal family, past and present.
Becoming Elizabeth is the latest entry in Cannon, telling the dramatic story of an orphaned teenager in the 16th century and the daughter of Henry VIII, who later becomes Queen Elizabeth I.
Of course, for it being a TV series, there is some sex and intrigue and a lot of drama. I really enjoyed the episodes you showed because it can be hard to tell new and compelling stories about such a famous historical figure.
The series will be streamed on Starz.
Two things to listen to
Isn’t it ironic that Alanis Morissette is releasing a new album?
I couldn’t resist using this popular lyric by Morissette as her latest project, The Storm Before the Calm might not be exactly what some expect.
This is because it is a guided meditation album.
The Storm Before the Calm was released on Friday.
let’s go dancing.
That’s exactly what Perfume Genius will do for us with its latest title, Ugly Season.
Artist Michael Hadrias originally composed the project to accompany an immersive dance piece in collaboration with choreographer Kate Wallich, and reflects his absolute love for music.
The new album was released on Friday.
one thing to talk about
But I did.
As she looked back at her life and career as she geared up for the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show, she was very moved by her motivation, passion, and desire to represent her culture.
I also forgot how awesome Lopez was at 2019’s “Hustlers” and how she was overlooked during that year’s awards season.
Above all, there was just something about seeing a woman of color in her fifties — when so much in Hollywood rewards and celebrates youth — to do the damn thing and have it all.
Thanks for the inspiration, J.Lo.
something to swallow
The trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard ended in defamation, although she doesn’t feel like it.
Earlier this week, Heard spoke to NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie about the case, in which she and her ex-husband were held responsible but faced larger fines.
In addition to confirming her allegations of abusing Depp, Heard spoke about how the general public seems to view the legal contradiction between the two (they both sued each other, and the statement generated a lot of ugliness between their ex-husbands).
“I wouldn’t blame the average person for looking at this and how they were treated and not thinking he was a Hollywood brat at his worst,” Guthrie said. “But what people don’t understand is that it’s actually much, much bigger than that.”
For weeks, the trial attracted a lot of attention and comment. But in the end, it could be argued that no one really won because both Heard and Depp opened the doors to what seemed to be an incredibly toxic and dysfunctional relationship.
