Blended News

I’ve been nursingĀ  an injury albeit small but hopefully does not require any surgery which is why I won’t be blogging too often until things are settled. I wanted to leave a few thoughts on some news that happened during the month of July:

Kourtney Kardashian & Scott Disick Welcomes Baby Girl Penelope Scotland

Congratulations to the couple for welcoming their second child to the world.

Kardashian Sisters Want Spin-Off

Kendall and Kylie would like their own spin-off show which is something that I believe will be granted to them in a few years but just not now. As long as there is a demand for the Kardashian/Jenner family, these two will be in the spotlight. With Kourtney having her baby, Kim’s romance with Kanye, and Lamar Odom’s potential resurgence with the Los Angeles Clippers, there will be a ton of ammo for future shows.

Steven Tyler & JLo Leave Idol/ Mariah Carey Joins

Neither of these judges lasted long unlike Randy Jackson who has been a judge since the show’s inception. Though the paychecks were huge, Steven recently said that Idol wasn’t his “cup of tea”. Jennifer Lopez also credited Tyler’s absence as one of the reasons she was leaving the show. Steven Tyler went back to work with his fellow Aerosmith band-mates while JLo is currently on tour. The biggest news is that Mariah Carey has confirmed that she will be a judge on the upcoming season of American Idol. Carey is a legendary vocalist who was showing off her musical talent to the world at a time when Jlo was just a fly girl. Carey is a great choice has a judge and has been around for a little over two decades. She’ll bring something unique to the show.

Frank Ocean

“4 summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19. He was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide”. I don’t have any secrets I need to keep anymore. I feel like a free man.”

I want to commend Frank Ocean for doing something that is tough to do in the music industry especially in the hip-hop r&b culture. It took guts to tell this story to his fans and naysayers all over. He now feels free and can focus on the art that people loved him for and not have to feel like he is holding a secret that would have only became a burden for him.

Will There Be A Rush Hour 4?

I was just thinking about Rush Hour 3 and how I felt that movie was a total fail compared to the first two installments. Some on Twitter may think that I was crazy but someone close to the franchise actually agreed with me. Arthur Sarkissian, the producer of all of the Rush Hour films had something to say about the third installment which came out in 2007.

“I personally was not happy with the third one. I thought 1 and 2 were very good. I think 3 got out of hand a little bit”.

Though Jackie Chan stated that he was done with the actions movies back in May, I think if he decides to come back for the fourth one it will be the Rush Hour film that we deserve that will officially close Chan and Chris Tucker’s chapter with the franchise. That is only if it is done correctly. Arthur Sarkissian is also in favor of bringing in a few new characters to freshen up the franchise.
