    Diana, etc. AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS 2017

    I was watching the AMAs with one half of one eye last night (show and music just isn't like it used to be) for 3 reasons-Tracee Ellis Ross, see if Bruno Mars won everything, and of course, Diana finally getting her Lifetime Achievement Award. And yes, Bruno won 7 out of 8 nominations-YES...

    Janet visits Harvey shelter in Houston

    I didn't even realize her tour was here yet, but I read that she was in Lafayette, LA last night, also hit by Harvey. She flew in today (her show is tomorrow) so she could visit with evacuees in the shelter next to the arena. I just realized that Randy was with her too. Beyonce and her mom...

    "The Greatest Showman"

    Finally, finally! Hugh Jackman's movie "The Greatest Showman" about P.T. Barnum is finally coming to the big screen. I know people love X-Men, and Wolverine, but he's such a talented singer and actor that I'm so glad he's going back to what he does best. <header class="article-header"...

    I know I'm a little late to the gate, but is anyone here watching "Underground"? I read some press on it last year, but for some reason I just assumed it was on a pay channel like Showtime or HBO-and it was a mini-series. Accidentally fell on it last weekend, and it's a regular TV series, and...

    Feud: Bette and Joan on FX

    Anybody going to watch this new little mini-series on the feud between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford and the making of "Baby Jane"? Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange are both such good actresses and they're both older now than Bette and Joan were when they made that film. It starts this week on...

    SUN RECORDS-new TV mini-series

    I just stumbled on this tonight, but apparently there's a new mini-series on the CMT channel (NIK during the day) about Sun Records and Sam Phillips discovering and working with Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis. It just started tonight. It's based on the stage play...

    Lady Gaga inspired by Michael for this year's Super Bowl

    I know Bruno Mars was inspired by Michael for his Super Bowl performance. And obviously Coldplay (the cards in the stands) and Beyonce (her outfit) were inspired last year. Now Lady Gaga is saying in her media interview that she's inspired by him-and it's one of her fondest memories watching...

    Dallas Cowboy, Michael Irvin, snuck out of the locker room at Super Bowl 93 to watch Michael.

    The Super Bowl is being played here this weekend, and of course, our local news and radio shows are all about the game. Lots of former football players have hit town and there's a week long celebration and parties galore. (Last time it was here was when Janet performed). Anyway, I thought this...

    John Hurt, star of the Elephant Man (and many more) has died

    Saw this the other day, and didn't see it posted. Made me think of Michael watching The Elephant Man over and over and crying. <header id="story-header" class="story-header" style="position: relative; margin-right: 0px; margin-left: 0px;">John Hurt, British Actor Hailed for His Shape-Shifting...

    Ne-Yo's Michael Tribute at the African American Museum Opening

    I didn't hear a thing about this special or even see a commercial for it, so I walked in on it during the last 20 minutes. Ran across this today (didn't see anything on YouTube), but the article was scathing. I watched it, and I thought he did a really good job. (I left out the mean tweets)...

    Couldn't find a thread on them-Anybody else like the band, Chicago? Probably the only "rock" band I took to immediately-this was before 'disco' came along and fell in love with it. :) They're having a documentary about the band tonight on CNN. Called "Chicago Forever." (They're showing home...

    American Music Awards 2016

    Anybody else trying to watch this tonight? Bruno opened the show and knocked it out of the park with 24K Magic and it had some great new choreography in the middle. And Drake broke Michael's 1984 Thriller record with 13 nominations this year-I just hope he doesn't break the record with wins in...

    Bobby Vee, 1960's pop singer, has died

    I learned a lot of things I didn't know about him today. I didn't realize he was the one who took the stage after Buddy Holly's plane went down (and he was only 15!!) and he kinda gave Bob Dylan a start too. 73 too young to get Alzheimer's in my opinon. RIP. BOBBY VEE, 1960S POP SINGER...
