Allison Williams Has Parting Words For Marnie

After six memorable seasons HBO's Lena Dunham-incepted Girls is finally singing its swan song. It's hard to imagine what it will feel like when Hannah, Jessa, Shosh, and Marnie are no longer gracing our screens on Sunday evenings. Because these characters, as flawed as they may be, have become friends. And Allison Williams, the woman who has portrayed egocentric Marnie for six years, agrees. "She represents a time in my life. Like, my whole adult life so far," the newly blonde actor says during…

Allison Williams On 'Get Out's Eye-Opening Premise

When the first trailer for Jordan Peele's horror film Get Out dropped many months ago, it was apparent the film would pack a powerful punch. Incepted from one half of the talented comedic duo Key and Peele, Get Out isn't a comedy at all, but instead focuses on a black man's oh-so terrifying weekend away at his white girlfriend's Stepford-like family estate. The film brilliantly serves as both an effective horror film and a social commentary on race. When I sit down with the film's (newly blonde)…

Did The Grammys Snub Beyonce?

Two of the most talented women in the music industry were recognized during Sunday night's Grammy Awards. Beyonce and Adele were both nominated in three major categories: Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year — and it's no surprise to anyone. Both women have had extremely successful careers thus far, and 2016 was a tremendous year for both Adele and Bey. But at the end of the night, Adele took home all three awards. And that's a big deal. Adele released her highly anticipa…

The 'Stranger Things' Eggo Commercial Is Perfect

The 2017 Super Bowl was full of surprises. One of the biggest shocks audiences received was a first look at Season 2 of Netflix's Stranger Things. Yes, that's right — Eleven and the gang are headed back to us in October, and their return could not come at a better, spookier time. And the first teaser for Season 2 did something very clever. Everyone knows the show's pint-sized protagonist, Eleven, loves waffles. Like, she really, really loves waffles. To tease this fact, the Stranger Things Seaso…

Who Was The Last Solo Super Bowl Halftime Artist?

The Super Bowl constantly keeps viewers on their toes. Though the Super Bowl halftime performer is announced months before the big game, there are almost always unconfirmed, surprise guests who show up to mix things up. But during the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show, Lady Gaga went solo. And it wasn't since 2007 when the late, great Prince took the infamous stage that a halftime artist has performed alone. But this isn't to say Gaga's performance wasn't memorable. The famed singer certainly made …

Listen To 'Pirates Of The Caribbean 5's New Song

The Super Bowl isn't just for football fans. Movie lovers look forward to the big game to see what trailers will drop during the Super Bowl's coveted commercial slots. Disney released a new Guardians of the Galaxy 2 trailer, but that wasn't the only franchise to get a new teaser. So what song was in the Pirates of the Caribbean 5 trailer released during the Super Bowl? That would be none other than "Ain't No Grave (Can Hold My Body Down)" by Johnny Cash. The lyrics work well for the fifth insta…

'Guardians Of The Galaxy 2' Trailer Song Is Catchy

Besides an epic football game, the Super Bowl boasts some of the most anticipated trailers of the year. In 2017, a new Marvel trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 dropped before the big game even began. But what exactly is that entirely catchy song in the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 trailer? The extremely upbeat song used in the Super Bowl TV spot is called "The Chain" by none other than Fleetwood Mac. From their album Rumours, "The Chain" was released in 1977, making it 40 years old. This song …

The Thing Single People Have In Common With Moms

There seems to be a misperception in America that when a woman becomes a mother her other identities and characteristics are lessened. While some women see their most important role as being a mom, this is not to say these women are no longer daughters, sisters, friends, hard-workers, students, etc. In Sundance Film Festival's Fun Mom Dinner, starring Toni Collette, Bridget Everett, Molly Shannon, and Katie Aselton, it's clear that moms are many things, and there's one thing in particular they s…

Alison Brie On How 'Little Hours' Nuns Empower

As the tradition goes, nuns of the Catholic church are celibate. They do not marry, and they certainly do not have sex, so it was a bit of a surprise to see The Little Hours, a film about four nuns (played by Molly Shannon, Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate Micucci) sexually empower its female characters. I sat down with Shannon, Brie, Micucci, and co-star Dave Franco at Sundance Film Festival for a frank talk about sex, nuns, and how the two intersect. "It's exciting. It's empowering. It's ab…

'Newness' Cast On Why Dating Apps Aren't All Great

While traditional means of finding a mate are still in effect, Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, and other dating apps have never been more popular. When a potential partner or one night stand is only a swipe away, why exert any additional effort? This is one of the themes explored in Drake Doremus' Newness, a film that premiered at Sundance Film Festival and follows two 20-somethings who find lust and maybe even love on a dating app. But according to the filmmaker and the film's stars, Nicholas Hoult and …
