My Thoughts On 'Teen Wolf' Final Season Premiere


Well, the last ride has officially begun.

Yours truly has taken some time to really process the premiere of 'Teen Wolf' from Tuesday night, and I've finally figured out what I need to say.

Will this be turning into a weekly recap like I've done with previous seasons? Probably not unfortunately, but I'll dive into that more in a bit.

Earlier seasons of the show, while always entertaining, were driven by the likability of the cast and Jeff Davis making us fall in love with these characters naturally. We've seen many of them come and go (Allison, Derek, Jackson) and replaced with others (Liam, Hayden, Malia). The constants of the show however, (and this isn't a knock on star Tyler Posey) have always been Stiles and Lydia.

Holland Roden is such a gifted actress, and she's really shown growth when it comes to Lydia. We've seen her come so far from being that mean girl, to a powerful member of the group. She commands the screen whenever she's on.

That now leads us into the incredibly talented Dylan O'Brien.

The premiere was anchored by Dylan's portrayal of Stiles. We've always come to love his goofy behavior and pining after Lydia, but the growth and maturity in his acting continues to astound me. I've said it before and I'll say it again:

DYLAN O'BRIEN DESERVES ACCOLADES FOR THIS PERFORMANCE.

Just look at the premiere. Stiles' realization that his friends and even his own father have forgotten him was very powerful material. Dylan didn't need to say one word, as the emotion was all over his face.

The problem with the premiere however, was the focus on Hayden/Liam/Mason. There's no need, in a final season, to focus on the secondary characters we don't feel connected to. There are rumors swirling that we could see Tyler Hoechlin (Derek) and Colton Haynes (Jackson) reappear before the series end. It would also be magical to see Crystal Reed (Allison) return in some form as well.

Will I be recapping?

Probably not. I want to take this final season in, and really see if it connects to the earlier seasons. But who knows, maybe I'll pop in once and awhile.

Now I want to hear from all of you:

Madonna Delivers Brutal Truth During Billboard Honor

UPDATED WITH FULL VIDEO:


 I've previously spoken out about this, but need to say more.

Madonna was honored by Billboard as Woman of the Year at last nights event, and when she took the stage....

She delivered a speech that EVERYONE needs to hear!!

Speaking out on the ageism, sexism, and controversy surrounding her legendary career, the Queen of Pop held nothing back.

Including some tears.

If this speech ever needed to be delivered, it was now.

Thank you Madonna.

Read her entire speech below:

"I stand before you as a doormat. Oh, I mean, as a female entertainer," Madonna said. "Thank you for acknowledging my ability to continue my career for 34 years in the face of blatant sexism and misogyny and constant bullying and relentless abuse."

Recalling her life as a teenager when she first moved to New York: 

"People were dying of AIDS everywhere. It wasn’t safe to be gay, it wasn’t cool to be associated with the gay community," Madonna recalled. "It was …

WATCH: Britney Spears SLAYS Her Billboard Music Awards Medley!!

I haven't recovered.......so...bare with me.

Britney Spears took the stage at tonight's Billboard Music Awards with a career-spanning medley, and girl didn't just bring it.....

SHE DESTROYED THE STAGE!!!

Our favorite Louisiana girl brought the house down right out the gate, with a scorching performance that included 'Work Bitch', 'Womanizer' (THAT BREAKDOWN!!!),'I Love Rock N' Roll,  'Breathe On Me', 'Touch of my Hand', 'Slave 4 U' and of course, 'Toxic'.

What has to be mentioned is Brit's energy on stage. Her smile was back, she moved like the pro we all fell in love with, and it was FIRE from start to finish.

Check out the FULL performance below!!





And don't......oh DON'T.....ever forget this moment:




Ariana Grande Makes Her Flawless Return With 'No Tears Left To Cry'!!

Okay, so yours truly has been trying to figure out how to put this into words, and here we go.

After what has seemed like an eternity, pop princess Ariana Grande has returned to our lives with new music, and we couldn't be more grateful.

With all of the hype behind her new single 'No Tears Left To Cry', as well as the subsequent teasers, we were expecting a powerhouse ballad from the singer.

While we get stellar vocals (THAT PRE-CHORUS!!) the song is nothing like what I expected as the first track off of her upcoming 4th studio album (reportedly due out June 15th).

The bouncy, synthetic track flows effortlessly from Grande and it's giving us everything we didn't know we needed!

Check out the song and accompanying 'Inception' like video below:
