“God’s beloved idiot” is not the end of the world as we know it

Love hovers in the air – beautiful brides, beautiful newlyweds. Not to mention an open bar. What could be better?

Well, when the party is over, I also love that I never have to worry about being left without things to watch and listen to these days.

In this regard, the first proposal in this newsletter includes a comedic duo husband and wife, which you may like.

“God’s favorite idiot”

Real-life couple Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy take part in this comedy series about the least likely person God will use to help the world fight Satan and the coming apocalypse.

Falcone and McCarthy have a great partnership both in marriage and in their careers, so they are worth the cost of admission. And, yes, given everything that is happening now, the end of the world as a comedy may seem strange. But believe me – if you love the weird, this is for you.

The show airs on Netflix.

“Bride’s father”

Did you save the date for this?

There have been many adaptations of “The Bride’s Father”, but this is the first to include a Latin American cast.

Andy Garcia and Gloria Estefan play the role of less than a happily married couple, whose daughter marries in this remake with many modern twists (including the daughter who offers a proposal and a Zen Center guide as the first choice for an employee). Perfect for the wedding season, right?

The film is broadcast on HBO Max, which shares a parent company with CNN.

“To become Elizabeth”

As regular Pop Life readers know, I can’t get enough of content about the British royal family, past and present.

Becoming Elizabeth is the latest entry into the cannon, telling the dramatized story of a 16th-century teenage orphan and daughter of Henry VIII, who will become Queen Elizabeth I.

Of course, since it is a cable series, there is little sex, intrigue and a lot of drama. I really liked the episodes I watched, because it can be a challenge to tell fresh, compelling stories about such an iconic historical figure.

The series is broadcast on Starz.

Two things to listen to

Alanis Morissette plays at the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire in London on March 4, 2020.

Isn’t it ironic that Alanis Morissette is coming out with a new album?

I couldn’t resist using this famous Morissette text, given that her latest project, The Storm Before the Calm, may not be exactly what some expect.

This is because this is an album with guided meditations.

“Meditation rests on my interior to the point where I can access ideas, visions and inspirations.” she told Rolling Stone. “I can hear my own capital-S I.”

“Storm before Calm” came out on Friday.

Perfume Genius performs on stage during the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California, on April 20, 2018.

To dance.

This is what Perfume Genius would make us do with his latest, entitled “Ugly Season”.

The artist, born Michael Hadreas, originally composed the project as an accompaniment to an immersive dance piece in collaboration with choreographer Kate Walich and reflects his pure love of music.

“I’ve always been obsessed with music,” Hadreas told the American Songwriter. “I have many memories of music, dancing and singing, and I’m obsessed with hearing certain songs on the radio again.”

The new album was released on Friday.

One thing to say

Jennifer Lopez performs during the Super Bowl LIV halftime show at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami on February 2, 2020.
As I tweetedI didn’t expect to get so emotional watching the new Netflix documentary about Jennifer Lopez, Halftime.

But I did.

The retrospective of her life and career is set against the background of her preparations for the halftime of the Super Bowl 2020. I was extremely impressed by her aspiration, passion and desire to represent her culture.

I also forgot how good Lopez was in “Hustlers” from 2019 and how she was neglected during the awards season that year.

Above all, there was something about seeing a colorful woman in her 50s – when so much of Hollywood is rewarding and celebrating her youth – does the damn thing and owns everything.

Thanks for the inspiration, J. Lo.

Something to drink

The defamation lawsuit against Johnny Depp and Amber Heard is over, although it doesn’t feel that way.

Earlier this week, Hurd spoke to NBC News’s Savannah Guthrie about the casewhereupon she and her ex-husband have been found responsible, but she faces heavier financial sanctions.
Hurd not only confirmed her allegations of abuse of Depp, but she also described how the general public seemed to view the legal relationship between the two (both were suing each other and the testimony was collected. a lot of ugliness between ex-spouses).

“I wouldn’t blame the average person for watching this and how it was reflected, and I wouldn’t think that Hollywood brats are in their worst condition,” she told Guthrie. “But what people don’t understand is that it’s actually a lot bigger than that.”

For weeks, the process garnered a lot of attention and comments. But at the end of the day, it could be argued that no one really won because both Hurd and Depp opened the door to what seemed like an incredibly toxic and dysfunctional relationship.

No matter where their life or career goes, this naked personal quarrels will always follow them both.
