Kanye West Set To Release Third New Album Of 2018 On Saturday

Stop us if you’ve heard this before. Kanye West makes a whole lot of controversial statements, then suddenly announces that a new album is on its way. Yes, it seems like every time West releases new music he precedes it with some sort of controversy to help get him back in the spotlight. And yesterday he once again did both.

West announced yesterday via Twitter that his third album of 2018, Yandhi, will be arriving Saturday evening. It follows up his album Ye, and the collaboration with Kid Cudi, Kids See Ghosts, that were both released earlier this year. With West performing on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live this weekend, it’s not a huge surprise that he’s releasing his new album on that day. After all, his 2016 album, Life of Pablo, came out just hours after his last performance on the show. 

West isn’t expecting his new album to top the charts either, he said on Twitter that “We know it will come in number 2 to my brother Lil Wayne and that’s lovely. The universe needs Ye and Wayne music at the same time.”

As for the controversy, well during his visit to Fader Magazine offices, he was seen wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, while wearing a Colin Kaepernick sweatshirt that he had made himself. As you are surely well aware, Trump and footballer Kaepernick don’t exactly see eye to eye thanks to the kneeling during the national anthem thing. He also went on to state he would have preferred controversial comedian Louis C.K. host SNL instead of Adam Driver, got the number of slaves from the 1800s wrong, that he would have “run, fought, or got killed” if he had been a slave, and that he wants to build a flying-car factory in Chicago. 

If anything, West certainly knows how to promote himself at the right time.

Madonna’s Latest Tour And Album Are Not Doing So Well

It used to be that when Madonna released new music and announced a tour, the album would skyrocket to the top of the charts and the tour would sell out in a matter of minutes. That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore though, and it’s something that is bothering the Material Girl.

Radaronline.com is stating that the 60-year old singer is “devastated” that her tour didn’t sell out immediately after tickets went on sale. She’d even chosen to perform in smaller venues this time around too, and even then there are still plenty of tickets available. The tour, which starts in Brooklyn, New York, at the Howard Gilman Opera House on September 12 still has hundreds of tickets on sale for the opening week. The bigger the venue gets too, the more tickets become available. 

It’s not just Madonna’s tour however that isn’t garnering as much attention as usual. Her latest album, Madame X, has not only gotten mixed reviews, but none of the five released song have reached the Top 100. That could change when the album launches this Friday, but at this point pre-orders aren’t as high as expected either. 

In the end, this doesn’t mean a whole lot. Madonna has had lulls in her career before, and usually she ends up reinventing herself and her sound to draw attention to herself once more. With a career that has spanned four decades, Madonna is a master at finding out what people want and how to get eyes on her. We have no doubt she will do so again soon.

Geena Davis Joins GLOW For Season 3

Oscar winning actress Geena Davis has joined the cast of the Netflix series GLOW. The 63 year old will be playing a former showgirl turned entertainment director of the Fan-Tan Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

GLOW, a fictional series that follows the story of a group of female wrestlers breaking barriers in what is predominantly a male “sport” in the 1980’s has been a huge hit for Netflix since premiering for the streaming company two years ago. At the end of the second season the girls packed their bags and headed to Las Vegas where they planned on continuing their careers. For the third season the girls are now headliners at the Fan-Tan Hotel and Casino, and the girls quickly discover that Vegas is much harder than TV. The girls start struggling with their own identities, both in and out of the ring, and find themselves questioning their choices. 

Davis signed on to appear in 5 of the 10 season 3 episodes. It hadn’t been announced that she had even signed onto the show until after the trailer for the new season was released yesterday. 

GLOW is based on the 1980’s program of the same name, but the story is completely fiction. It follows Ruth Wilder (played by Alison Brie) who was an out of work actress in Los Angeles who stumbles upon an opportunity to make it big when she tries out for a role in a new wrestling program. Together with 12 other LA misfits they grow the business and become a hit, but not without complications. 

GLOW Season 3 launches Aug. 9 on Netflix.

Lucifer Renewed By Netflix For A Fifth And Final Season

 

There wasn’t a lot of doubt that Lucifer would return for a fifth season, especially if the series did well enough on Netflix. After all the fourth season ended on a huge cliffhanger that left viewers clamoring for more. Netflix announced yesterday that the show would be returning for a fifth season, but they also announced that the fifth season, would also be the last.

The Tom Ellis led drama was cancelled last year on Fox, but Netflix quickly swooped in and picked up the series for a fourth season. Shortly afterwards the streaming service stated that the fourth season would consist of 10 episodes, and be launched on May 8th, 2019. When it came out earlier this year, it received decent reviews from critics and fans alike, but nothing was stated about if a fifth season would be happening or not. The cliffhanger ending made it seem like it would be, but nothing was said. That has now changed though. 

“We are so incredibly thankful to Netflix for resurrecting our show last season, and now letting us finish the story of Lucifer on our terms,” co-showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich said in a statement. “Most importantly, we want to thank the fans for their incredible passion and support. The best is yet to come!!”

While no word has been given as to how many episodes would be made, or when the season five would be airing, Netflix did release a statement of their own. They said “We’re thrilled that ‘Lucifer’ fans around the world have embraced this series on Netflix, and we can’t wait to give them the big finish they’ve all been waiting for.”

Lucifer stars Ellis in the title role, with Lauren German, Kevin Alejandro, D.B. Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Aimee Garcia and Rachael Harris co-starring. Season 4 also introduced Real Style Magazine’s 2019 cover girl Inbar Lavi as Eve and Graham McTavish as Father Kinley.
