Not much has been said about a third series as there are still three more episodes in the second series yet to air.

Protect Ya Neck, Crossroad and Only Time Will Tell will be released today, February 3 and February 10.

However earlier this month it was announced The CW had renewed the series for a third season.

Deadline reported on the news, saying: “For All American, [the] news is in stark contrast to last January when it was the only current CW series not to land on the list of the network’s early renewals.

“The drama was eventually picked up in April, in part thanks to strong early streaming results on Netflix.”

Vivica A. Fox Hopes Jussie Smollett Makes a Return for ‘Empire’ Finale

During an appearance on ‘The Talk’, the actress portraying Candace Mason on the Lee Daniels-created series points out that the decision to bring back the Jamal Lyon depicter lies with the network.

AceShowbizVivica A. Fox has urged TV bosses to bring Jussie Smollett back for the “Empire” finale.

The actor has not appeared on the show since he was charged with wasting police time over an alleged race attack hoax in Chicago, Illinois last year (2019), and as the investigation into the incident and his subsequent arrest and release continues, Fox entertainment president Michael Thorn has made it clear that any talk of Smollett’s return should be ignored.

But Vivica, who plays Candace on “Empire”, is hoping TV bosses see sense and bring his character, Jamal Lyon, back for one final episode before the drama wraps later this year (2020).

“I love Jussie and I always will,” she tells “The Talk“. “He’s family. Things happen. We started the show with him and in my honest opinion, I’d love to finish it with him, but it is up to the network.”

Speaking about creator Lee Daniels‘ decision to cut Jussie on “Watch What Happens Live” in November (2019), she said, “There was just too much drama surrounding the circumstances… (but) don’t count him out. Y’all may see him.”

Why Diddy Blasted The Grammy Awards

The Grammy Awards are currently underway and stars are gathering for what’s considered the biggest night in music. This year’s celebration has already featured a touching tribute to the late-great, Kobe Bryant, who was tragically killed in a helicopter crash – along with his 13-year-old daughter and seven others. The ceremony opened with a moment of silence.

The show will also include a star-studded tribute to late rapper, Nipsey Hussle, and is hosted by Alicia Keys. While everyone waits for all winners to be announced and watch to see their favorite performers, social media timelines are filled with the hottest celebrities fashions and behind the scenes moments from last night’s pre-Grammy party.

One of the videos circulating is Diddy’s acceptance speech at the yearly event, in which he blasts the award show for excluding black music.

Diddy blasts the Grammy’s for not being inclusive

The annual pre-Grammy party thrown by music mogul Clive Davis is a highly anticipated event. Artists and music industry insiders gather to celebrate one another and enjoy a ceremony where some of the biggest artists are honored. Among this year’s honorees was Diddy.

Diddy took to the stage to receive the Industry Icon Award. The 50-year-old gave a 40-minute speech at the gala. He dedicated the last six minutes of his acceptance to express his disappointment with the Recording Academy for not being inclusive in acknowledging black music. 

“I’m officially starting the clock. You’ve got 365 days to get this shit together. We need the artists to take back control, we need transparency, we need diversity,” he said.

THE GAME HAS BEEN ELEVATED!! ✊🏿

A post shared by Diddy (@diddy) on

He called on everyone in the room that had “the power to make the changes that need to be made.” He also promised to hold the Recording Academy accountable to fulfill its responsibilities to artists and the music industry.

“Black music has never been respected by the Grammys,” he said. “And for years we’ve allowed institutions that have never had our best interests at heart to judge us. And that stops right now.”

Diddy received a standing ovation for his speech.

The Grammy’s have been accused of not celebrating black artists before

The allegations of the Grammy Awards not recognizing black artists, specifically those in hip hop, is a historical debate. Will Smith famously boycotted the awards show in 1989 while he was in a group with DJ Jazzy Jeff. Smith and Jeff were nominated, and ultimately won a Grammy for their hit single “Parents Just Don’t Understand.”

“We don’t have the problem with the Grammy as an award or the Grammys as an institution, we at the time. “We chose to boycott. We feel that it’s a slap in the face.”

According to Jeff, the duo were told there was not enough time to televise all of the selected categories. “They televised 16 categories and, from record sales, from the Billboard charts, from the overall public’s view, there’s no way you can tell me that out of 16 categories, that rap isn’t in the top 16,” Jeff said.

Other artists and execs, including hip hop trio, Salt-N-Pepa, Russell Simmons and LL Cool J, joined in the boycott. The boycott brought about change as the following year, the Grammys televised the best rap performance award presentation.

That hasn’t stopped the criticism of the award show. Just last year, The Daily Beast featured an article claiming the award show was racist in its treatment to hip hop artists. It’s also been accused of rigging awards and giving certain categories to non-black artists despite album sales and popularity.

Grammys 2020: Ariana Grande Gets Bleeped Out for Cursing Live on Red Carpet

The ‘Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored’ singer is talking about her first Grammy nomination when she accidentally cusses out and repeats it after realizing the first slip-up.

AceShowbizAriana Grande oozed princess-y vibes on the red carpet of the 2020 Grammy Awards, but that didn’t stop her from talking like a thug. The 26-year-old singer/actress got parts of her interview on the red carpet censored as she accidentally cursed, not once, but twice during a live coverage.

Asked how she felt about scoring a major nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album for her latest effort “Sweetener”, the “Thank U, Next” hitmaker said, “It’s an honor. It’s insane.” She added, “We didn’t even mean to make this album. It just kind of happened because my friends and I were trying to help ourselves out of a very trying … and very horrible time and it was kind of an accident.”

Speaking of accident, she then accidentally dropped some swearing words and got bleeped out. Realizing the slip-up, she gasped as she put her hand on her mouth and said, “I’m not allowed to say that. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.”

But Ariana’s attempt to fix the snafu only doubled the mistake as she appeared to cuss again and got bleeped out. She seemed to be surprised of herself, closing her mouth with one hand while lifting her other hand which held the mic.

Keltie Knight, the host red carpet correspondent, saved the day as she swiftly changed the topic to talk about Ariana’s dress at the event. The “Victorious” alum arrived in a gray tulle dress by Giambattista Valli with a voluminous skirt, before changing into a different-but-similar silver number.

She completed her look with matching evening gloves and her long blonde hair was styled in her iconic ponytail, evoking Cinderella energy.

Besides attending the ceremony as a nominee, Ariana was tapped to perform at the Sunday, January 26 event. She belted “Imagine” before transitioning into “My Favorite Things”. The singer, who started off by wearing a black gown, took off her dress to reveal a lingerie look and moved into a pink bedroom set with her dancers to close out her performance with a rendition of “Thank U, Next”.

Read the Lyrics to Demi Lovato's New Song "Anyone"

Demi Lovato is performing at the Grammys right now, and here are the lyrics to the incredibly emotional song she’s singing.

Demi spoke about the song in an interview last year, saying, “I almost listen back and hear these lyrics as a cry for help,” she told New Music Daily With Zane Lowe about “Anyone.” “And you kind of listen back to it and you kind of think, How did nobody listen to this song and think, ‘Let’s help this girl?

“I was recording it in a state of mind where I felt I was okay, but clearly I wasn’t,” she added. “I even listen back to it and I’m like, Gosh, I wish I could go back in time and help that version of myself.”

‘Dare Me’: A Perspective-Twisting Hour Is One of the Best TV Episodes of the Year So Far

[Editor’s Note: The following interview contains spoilers for “Dare Me” Episode 5, “Parallel Trenches.”]

The opening of each episode of “Dare Me” is its own pearl, presenting the audience with a mystifying piece of visual information that hints at where things might be heading. In the case of Episode 5, that image is a floating tooth, drifting — as some of the series central characters are, too. Unsettling in isolation and horrific in context, it’s just one of the many storytelling levels that this USA series has discovered for itself.

“I think we felt freer to be more abstract and surreal as it goes,” series co-creator and novel author Megan Abbott told IndieWire. “This show has gone somewhat into this sort of unconscious state, with dreams and the different POVs. It gives you a little more freedom to play. We’re all David Lynch fans among the room and the crew and everybody, so we would often talk about our David Lynch moment.”

This week’s episode takes that veneer of surreality and expands it out into a “Rashomon”-style exploration of a pivotal event, both in its foreboding lead-up and its devastating fallout. Orbiting around a shocking cheer accident that leaves Sutton Grove cheer squad member RiRi without a few of her front teeth, the episode peels back the curtain to reveal the psychological and physical precursors that also run through the lives of Addy (Herizen Guardiola) and Beth (Marlo Kelly).

What started as an idea to build off of the framework of Abbott’s novel became a way to marry the freedoms of writing and visual storytelling that episodic TV can afford.

“Lisa Lutz, who wrote the episode, and I worked on ‘The Deuce,’ — she pitched it and we all kind of jumped on it immediately. What mattered to us most was those devices are meaningless if you don’t have a purpose for them. And we really wanted that emotional landing with Beth when you really understand what she has been through, we really wanted to everything became about understanding Beth and what everyone else is not seeing,” Abbott said. “There was all this other stuff, honestly, that we would have loved to have done. But you realize that no one’s going to notice that because they’re actually doing what they should be doing, which is following the story. In the end, Olivia Newman, who directed it, had such wonderful ideas about color and camera that did so much that we didn’t really have to write all that.”

“Dare Me”

TV is an ideal venue for retelling a single series of events from slightly different perspectives. And it’s not the first time that series co-creator Gina Fattore has worked on an episode that takes this structure — she wrote the Season 3 episode of “Dawson’s Creek” that replays the day the school finds out that Joey and Pacey are dating. The context here in “Dare Me” is a little different, but the challenge remains the same — of finding the right balance between making something that works within the overall flow of the show before veering off into unexpected territory.

“When we were breaking the story, at every stage I was trying to track that the audience has seen four previous episodes of this show, so they have a sense of the rhythm of the storytelling. Some people who may watch more TV than others are going to pick up really quickly when there’s a deviation from that formula or style, and some people might not get it until much later on in the story,” Fattore said. “The people who are going to get it right away may be looking for clues earlier, but the other people who are just watching for the first act, it really should seem like the other episodes of the show. I love all that experimentation with with point of view and rewinding and realizing that we didn’t have all the pieces of the puzzle, so we’re giving you more.”

For Abbott, the events in this episode outlined some of the main differences between words on a page and experiencing “Dare Me” in this TV form. The novel deftly conveys the pain, both in small incremental bruises and outbursts like RiRi’s accident. But getting to translate those moments into something that can engage other senses became one of the more satisfying parts of making the show. “Dare Me” can show Beth demonstrating a bow-and-arrow technique and convey in 10 seconds through everyone’s reactions how significant a development that is.

“In a novel, it would take you a page and a half to get you there and it still would be relying on your ability to describe spatial elements,” Abbott said. “[On TV] everything is easier about that. In the sound, the power of the feet landing on the on the shoulder, the punch of it all. That all is just so much a part of it and says so much about the risk these young women are taking.”

While juggling viewpoints, this episode also engages with another idea in Beth’s storyline, as she comes to terms with what has happened to her. Navigating a complicated world of trauma and self-denial, “Dare Me” mirrors the outward violence that RiRi experiences with the violence that Beth is forced to internalize.

“It just seemed like a perfect fit in terms of examining the trauma that happens to teenage girls in our world, where we’re having a conversation right now about consent, which is amazing and great. That conversation was not happening when this book was first published,” Fattore said. “The great thing about a writers room is that you start to have conversations in your room, and you realize that there are so many different ways to tell the story. Something involving any kind of sexual trauma is a really fraught story that you want to handle with care and get many different perspectives, and so I think it became a sort of natural outgrowth that we thought, ‘Well, this is the time and the place to tell that story.’”

In addition to providing windows into the interior lives of other characters, this split-perspective episode also deepens the audience’s understanding of Addy. Guardiola has been tasked with playing multiple moments so far this season where Addy has faced a pivotal choice. Much like the ice-bath sequence a few episodes earlier, this chapter draws on Guardiola’s ability to take the internal struggle that the novel can make so explicit and translate enough of it to the surface to help the viewer track her complicated motives.

“I was worried I would end up at a place where we would have to soften that or make Addy always do the right thing,” she says. “And it’s been such a relief that we get to let her do all this because she’s figuring stuff out, in some ways, [that she] is the most morally complicated character because she doesn’t know herself yet in the way that, say, Beth does.”

Though this might be the season’s biggest swing from a structural perspective, Abbott says that she sees this as a reflection of where the second half of the season evolves from here. From director Steph Green’s work on the pilot to what Newman was able to do in blending the various storylines, that evolution shows how “Dare Me” has been able to stay connected to itself even as it’s drawn in other genre directions.

“When we were interviewing or meeting with directors and DPs in the early stages, we kept telling them that we wanted to show’s look to slowly morph from this to this dreamy adolescent feel to this noir, and this episode we always imagined as the pivot,” Abbott said. “It’s almost like there’s this sort of sharpness to the lens and all of a sudden, the lens gets shaken and nothing looks the same thereafter, which is how it is for Beth.”

“Dare Me” airs Sunday nights at 10 p.m. on USA.

Alejandro Cabello: 5 Things To Know About Camila’s Dad Who Inspired Her Grammys Song

Camila Cabello’s dad, Alejandro, was front and center when she sang a song dedicated to him at the 2020 Grammy Awards on Jan. 26, and he was brought to tears by the performance.

When Camila Cabello took the stage at the 2020 Grammy Awards, she sang one of her new songs live for the very first time! The singer gave a stunning rendition of her song “First Man,” which is dedicated to her father, Alejandro Cabello. Alejandro was in the front row as his daughter commanded the stage with her beautiful voice, and he broke down in tears as she walked toward him while singing the beautiful song. The father/daughter duo shared the sweetest moment as the performance came to a close. Here’s more to know about Camila’s dad:

1. He’s a United States immigrant. Alejandro is Mexican, while Camila’s mother is Cuban. Camila and her mom moved to the United States from Mexico when she was just five years old. Her mom used a fake address so that Camila could attend a good school, and she worked at Marshall’s to make money for the family. Alejandro didn’t come to the U.S. until more than a year later, after swimming the Rio Grande to join his family.

2. He got his green card in 2016. It wasn’t until many years after Alejandro immigrated that he finally got his green card in 2016. He made money by washing cars at the mall before finally earning his green card.

3. He took Camila to audition on ‘X-Factor’ for her 15th birthday. Camila told her parents that, instead of a quinceanera, she wanted to audition for The X-Factor on her 15th birthday. Along with her parents, sister and grandmother, she took a 12 hour drive to North Carolina for her audition, and was eventually placed in the girl group, Fifth Harmony. They came in third place in the competition.

4. ‘First Man’ is on Camila’s sophomore solo album. “First Man” is the final track on Camila’s Dec. 2019 album, Romance. On the track, she sings about falling in love for the first time, but makes sure to let her dad know that she knows that he’ll always be the “first man” who loved her.

5. He has one other daughter besides Camila. Alejandro is also father to Camila’s sister, Sofia, who 12 years old.

An Investigation Into The Meaning Of *That* Ariana Grande Grammys Moment

Ariana Grande might have started her 2020 Grammys performance with seven rings, but she ended it with six. Or so some fans think. Ariana Grande took off her ring at the end of her Grammys performance, and it might mean the end of her Thank U, Next era.

After deciding to skip the 2019 Grammys, Grande came out swinging this year, with a performance medley of "Imagine," "My Favorite Things," "7 rings," and, of course, "Thank U, Next." But it was one symbolic gesture at the end of her performance that had fans talking. After dancing around to "7 rings," Grande started "Thank U, Next," her breakup anthem, and, alone, no longer surrounded by her background dancers, she climbed onto a bed, took out a ring box, and put her ring back inside. It was a choreographed move that confused some and excited others. It was so purposeful, it had to mean something, right?

It’s no secret that "Thank U, Next" was a breakup song that came out of Grande’s split from her former fiancé, Pete Davidson. So, the removal of the ring could be interpreted as her moving on from her brief engagement. She is, after all, literally putting a ring back in the box. However, given that the move came after her performance of "7 rings," fans are thinking it could have a deeper meaning for the singer.

Fans on Twitter are interpreting the gesture as Grande leaving behind her entire Thank U, Next era. It’s not about her personal relationships, but her professional and artistic period, which is, sadly, coming to a close with this performance. Grande herself actually confirmed that her performance was going to act as a farewell to her last two albums. When a fan tweeted at her earlier on Sunday, "so… do we end this era tonight..?" she responded, "yes," followed by a series of emojis, including a ring and a box.

Grande recently concluded her Sweetener world tour, and closed out 2019 by dropping a surprise live album, K Bye for Now. So it’s only right that she end the Thank U, Next era with a long-awaited Grammy performance. And, though it’s sad to see it all come to an end, Grande’s fans couldn’t be more grateful. "this era has been truly healing and special," wrote one fan, @Beccaelaine.

It’s been a pretty great few years of music from Grande, but her fans are more than ready to say "thank u, next" to one era, and "hello" to a new one.
