Fans of FOX’s ‘Star’ were absolutely devastated in early May 2019 when it was announced the beloved series was cancelled after its third season.

Spurring a #SaveStar petition and campaign by its devoted viewers, the movement was an attempt to get other networks – including streaming services like Hulu and Netflix – to pick up the show to bring its story to the close it deserved.  Just a month ago its director, Lee Daniels, confirmed he was hard at work to expedite the campaign’s process with hopes of finding ‘Star’ a new home (click here to read more).

Fast forward to today, Daniels confirmed his valiant efforts were futile.  But, while the show has not been promised a new season, fans can rejoice at news it will come back…in the form of a 2 hour movie!  Details inside:


It may have been nearly 7 years since the last time Waka Flocka Flame saw his name alongside a hit on the Hot 100 as a leading act, but that hasn’t stopped the Atlantan rapper-turned-reality star from hitting out at gay men who’ve given (or plan to give) him compliments in person or on social media.

In a video that went viral earlier this week, the 33-year-old threatened to have gay men literally shot who figuratively shoot their shots at him – flattery the Rap star says is “disrespectful.”  As the video continues to make its rounds, social media users weigh in on the commentary which conveniently surfaced just as Pride month came to a close.

Hear the words from his mouth that caused the uproar:


Nicki Minaj wants the world to know that she has a great deal of respect for the Hip-Hop icon Lil Kim.

The ladies were once engaged in an unfortunate feud which saw Kim release the ill-fated ‘Black Friday‘ in response to Nicki Minaj‘s record-setting debut album ‘Pink Friday’ and jab each other a series of diss tracks and radio interviews.

At the heart of their spat? Kim’s feeling that Minaj did not pay homage to her.

Today, Nicki has revealed that this isn’t the case.

She may have ruled over competition last week with her 9th #1 album, ‘Madame X’ (click here to read more), but this week Queen of Pop Madonna suffered a royal disappointment after peruse of the Billboard 200 saw her drop over 70 rungs from the chart’s perch.

Topping the tally thanks to a merchandise/ticket bundle deal that saw fans in line to purchase tickets of her highly anticipated ‘Madame X’ tour also get a free copy of the album, the move gave her just the edge she needed to outpace Bruce Springsteen for the top position.  Fast forward to this week, however, Springsteen – who suffered quite the drop himself – still managed to stay in the top 30.

Madge on the other hand…


‘Can’t nobody tell me nothing’ would be right if you’ve looked at the Billboard Hot 100 charts at least once over the last three months.  Despite attempts from heavy-hitters like Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello, Post Malone, and more, no one has been able to unseat newcomer Lil Nas X and his inaugural chart entry, ‘Old Town Road.’

The Billy Ray Cyrus-assisted number galloped to #1 on the back of controversy and some record-breaking streaming 12 weeks ago and has not been dethroned once in that time period.  With this past Sunday marking the beginning of its 13th week atop the tally, the achievement came with another record-breaking stat.  Billboard reports:

Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road,” featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, leads the Billboard Hot 100 for a 13th week, rewriting the record for the longest reign ever for a hip-hop hit.

The track passes three such songs that led for 12 weeks each: “See You Again,” by Wiz Khalifa featuring Charlie Puth, in 2015; “Boom Boom Pow,” by The Black Eyed Peas (2009); and “Lose Yourself,” by Eminem (2002-03).

As we congratulate the 20-year-old for yet another career milestone, look inside to see who joins him in the top 25 on this week’s TGJ Chart Check:  Hot 100 edition:


Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars are easily the two most popular male Pop stars on the scene today.  As such, a collaboration of epic proportion just seems fitting.  And, if you ask us, they certainly succeeded with the Rock-tinged ‘Blow.’

The latest effort from the former’s highly anticipated forthcoming opus, ‘No. 6 Collaboration Project’ (which has already seen singles with Khalid, Justin Bieber, and more lifted in its support), ‘Blow’ also calls on help from Country powerhouse Chris Stapleton.

Coming as yet another sonic departure from Sheeran, look inside to hear just what the trio of vocalists cooked up:


‘Greenleaf’ is back!  Well…almost.

Spinning back into dramatic action on Tuesday. September 3, the hit TV show returns for a fourth season with help from Beau Bridges and the party of actors who have soared in the show during its first three seasons!

What viewers can expect from the next season? A puzzle made up of lies, lust and the exploitation of church-goers, pieced together by storylines that will stun, shock and startle.

You’re not convinced?  Don’t take our word for it.  Look inside:


It’s almost time to hear the roar of ‘The Lion King.’

Disney‘s live-action take on the 1994 classic arrives in theaters on July 19th and promises to be a blockbuster of epic proportions.

One of key components of the flick is its music, which fuses songs we’ve know and love with new gems courtesy of Elton John and Beyonce – the latter of whom stars in the film as Nala.

Secrecy has surrounded the diva’s original song – which is still billed as “TBA” on the soundtrack.

What is known is that the cut was worked on by Bey, alongside ‘Lion King’ music maestros Hans Zimmer, Tim Rice, and Lebo M. 

The latter appeared on an African TV show this week and opened up – all be it cautiously – about the mysterious song. And it seems like its seismic in size.

Daniel Caesar‘s surprise new effort, the ‘Case Study 01’ album, may not be commercially mirroring its wealth of critical acclaim (click here to read), but gems from his debut LP – ‘Freudian’ – continue to ring in successes.

The latest win comes courtesy of notification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) as, on July 2, it was announced his H.E.R.-assisted duet, ‘Best Part,’ crossed the threshold for double platinum certification.  Celebrating a sales equivalence of over 2 million units shifted, the 2017-released cut – despite only peaking at #75 on the Hot 100 – fared much better on a number of R&B charts and even nabbed the duo a ‘Best R&B Performance’ Grammy at this year’s ceremony.

Now they’re able to add another honor to the tune’s list of growing accomplishments. Details inside:
