Super Bowl 51 Halftime Show

FINALLY!!! It’s something I’ve been begging for for years. As yet another big middle finger to the hypermasculinity of football, Lady Gaga is set to perform the halftime show in this season’s Super Bowl. You may remember she had already sung the national anthem at this past Super Bowl, but this is the real deal. It comes after two years of other such high profile events: her duets album with Tony Bennett, multiple awards show performances, the aforementioned national anthem, appearing in American Horror Story, and now this.

Gaga is another in a string of recent acts like Katy Perry and Beyonce, twice really for the latter, that you’d think no typical football fan likes. But they are all beloved by many and fitting for the show. There’s just so much she can do with this though. Will it be a medley of old tracks? Mostly stuff from the soon-to-be-released new album? Likely it’s going to be both. I mean you don’t go to a Britney Spears show in Vegas just to see everything from her cd Glory, right? No.

If you had to ask me, her best cd was by far The Fame Monster, the EP deluxe addition to her first album The Fame, so that’s the stuff I want to see. Though since it will more than likely be a complete medley, I say start out with an opening of Bad Romance, transition into Paparazzi or Poker Face, something from her next album Joanne, and end it with The Edge Of Glory or Applause. The great thing about Gaga used to be that you don’t know what to expect with her though. You can never forget the meat dress, her male alter ego Jo Calderone, or arriving on the red carpet in a giant egg. That stuff is classic her and nobody can ever match that level of randomness and artistry, aside from David Bowie of course. There’s been no details about the setlist or what will go on, so it’s all up in the air.

Regardless of what goes down, this will be the spectacle of 2017. There is nobody like Mother Monster. Long live the queen!

Get Trumped: The Democratic Party

Bananas absolute bananas. That is the only way to describe the debates last night. The moderating was terrible. Donald Trump did not say much besides sticking up for his business and trying to clear his name. Hillary Clinton sat and just watched Trump speak and gave her old political BS, that no one takes serious anymore.

The most surprising part of the night was when all of the polls came out to see who won the debate. CNN first reported that Hillary won in a landslide but every single poll that has came out since has Trump winning in a landslide. I’m not exaggerating. Every. Single. Poll. I thought he did a good job debating for his first time one on one but I did not expect him to be getting every poll going his way.

Bottom line is no matter how good Hillary Clinton does in a debate she will never beat Donald Trump. The only person capable of beating Trump in a debate is Bernie Sanders.

Trump and Sanders were definitely America’s two favorite presidential nominees because of their use of language. The way they spoke to their audiences with passion, inspired their followers. Hillary Clinton does not have that fire in her heart and her supporters don’t even have that inspiration to put in work to see her get elected as President of the United States.

You read it hear first, no matter what Hillary or Trump does on the debate stage. Donald Trump will always win. Sadly the only hope the Democratic Party had at stopping Trump was Bernie Sanders who should have gotten the party’s nomination. I am not a Bernie Sanders supporter but it is obvious to say that their corrupt political decision of giving Hillary the nomination will hurt them in the long run.

The prediction of what will happen in the next month is pretty clear. Trump will win the next two debates by a landslide just like he did last night, whether he speaks with substance or not. When election day rolls around, you will see Trump once again on top. For the last time I will say- Trump will win because he has the ability to inspire people. Whether you agree with his policies or not, you have to admit he does strike passion in American’s eyes. Newsflash to every American out there, Hillary cannot win on Never Trump voters alone.

The Hug Seen ‘Round The World

 

Well there’s something you never thought you’d see. The Obamas and ‘Dubya’ were at a Smithsonian opening together, where it’s important to note it was centered on African American culture no less. Laura’s thinking “God, why did I kill that guy as a teenager?” and the president’s glaring at his predecessor like “Bro, get away from my woman before you catch THESE hands.” Nobody expected this though. It’s republican and democrat, Texas and Chicago, Rangers and White Sox. (Remember, Obama threw out a first pitch at one of their games. Sorry @ all Cubs fans. That’s another thing you’ll never get.)

The internet went crazy over this, but that’s to be expected when something of this magnitude happens. Cue the edits.

Oh, Donald. Are you gonna marry Michelle next?

There’s so many to see and so many to laugh at. Please, in these trying times where so many bad things happen, it’s good to have this kind of stuff to see.

Grey’s Anatomy Is Back

parks-and-rec

(Spoilers below…)

The show that never seems to end is back: it’s season 13 of Grey’s Anatomy. Last night was the season premiere so here’s your roundup of what went down.

Mer and Riggs

They made out late last season, so of course there’s been some tension leading from there. Maggie reveals she really likes Riggs at Amelia and Owen’s wedding, surprising Meredith. The tension continues to this current season so in the end of the episode Mer breaks it off in a way between the two, but they’ll likely get back together soon.

April’s Baby

As seen in the season 12 finale, Ben had to perform an emergency c-section on April’s baby at home. Both were expected to die but miraculously survived. In the premiere April is in the hospital resting and healing with her new baby, named Harriet, and Jackson’s mom/Harriet’s grandma argues with April over what the baby’s last name should be. Luckily, all is well in the end.

Jo Leaves Again, Or Does She?

Also happening in the season 12 finale, Jo reveals to DeLuca first that she is already married and left her last husband and changed her name because he beat her. (totally fucked up, right?) DeLuca took het back to her apartment from the bar to make sure she’s safe, but he fell on her on her and Karev’s bed, only to have him then come home and beat the shit out of DeLuca. But now, in the premiere, Jo struggles all episode with this and the info that DeLuca knows about her past life, threatening to Dr. Webber that she’ll leave Grey Sloan and start anew again, only in the end changing her mind.

…which leads us toooooo…

Karev In Jail

The main episode-long plot is the aftermath of Karev beating up DeLuca back in the apartment. The former’s hand is injured and the latter’s face all messed up, mostly hurt in the eyes. The police arrive at the hospital with various characters working and they all eventually get questioned. Bailey informs them she didn’t know what happened but her husband, Ben Warren, had suspicions after seeing Alex’s hand and DeLuca’s poor reaction to seeing that Karev was taking care of him. Meredith also knew the whole time it was in fact Karev who beat up DeLuca and not just a random accident or mugging, eventually turning him in and the two talk in jail.

Sooooooo much drama in an hour. Can’t wait for next week.

Note: Uploading this was a DISASTER. Almost as bad as the show. First, our Soundcloud didn’t work. Then our YouTube didn’t work. Meanwhile my MacBook is crashing left and right because the RAM is jacked up from macOS Sierra plus it’s on its last legs anyway. Then I created a separate YouTube channel for all of our podcasts but that also didn’t work. So I just uploaded it on my personal page for now. Oh well. Chaos.
