Why Jason Momoa Is the Right Aquaman


BY: GURU JAY

Why Jason Momoa Is the Right Aquaman


Jason Momoa plays Aquaman in the upcoming DC comic book-based movie. Do you plan on going to see it? Undoubtedly, something tells me that Aquaman will please fans. I expect the movie to generate at least $300 million at the box office. Maybe, $500 million is within reach.

I watched a few Aquaman trailers and I’m impressed. Jason Momoa is the right man for the job. Plus, Amber Heard is a fine addition to the cast. Seeing those two on the silver screen together is a treat. Moreover, look for Nicole Kidman to demonstrate why she is at the pinnacle of success in the film.

Aquaman made an appearance in Batman V. Superman. I had a problem with accepting Ben Affleck as Batman, although I believe Henry Cavil is the right Superman. The point is Jason Momoa is the right Aquaman.

Still, don’t limit Jason Momoa to just one movie. I’ve become more familiar with Jason Momoa’s work over the past year. He is an incredible actor with an amazing filmography. Conan the Barbarian with Arnold Schwarzenegger is an all-time favorite. I believe Jason Momoa did the remake justice.

I highly recommend Conan the Barbarian (2011) because it is one of Jason Momoa’s best movies. One man shouldn’t have all those muscles. But he works out hard in the gym. They say hard work pays off and Jason Momoa gets it.

Somehow, he finds a way to star in Hollywood’s biggest productions. Case in point: Game of Thrones. Ever since Game of Thrones, he has made a name for himself.

Did you know Jason Momoa is legally married to Lisa Bonet? That means Zoe Kravitz is his stepdaughter. Talk about a small world.

In closing, I wonder what’s next for Jason Momoa. Will he settle down as a legendary superhero? Or will he star in riskier and more challenging productions? We’ll see…

Why Avengers Is the Ultimate Brand


BY: GURU JAY

Why Avengers Is the Ultimate Brand



Last summer Avengers: Infinity War was released in theaters. I was lucky to watch the blockbuster movie. Avengers: Infinity War was probably the biggest and best movie of Summer 2018.

It had everything you could want in a film: action, romance, suspense, drama, and a little comedy. I highly recommend seeing any Avengers movie. Marvel does it the best.

Now, Robert Downey Jr. showed why he is time and time again the number 1 actor in the world. Plus, Scarlett Johansson shined bright like the diamond she is. And Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Chris Pratt proved why they have Hollywood’s favorite first name.

In a sense, Avengers: Infinity War was the ultimate movie. Moreover, Avengers is the ultimate brand because the movie franchise is comparable to Star Wars and Star Trek. In fact, I think it’s better than Star Trek.

Give the director kudos because managing all those actor’s egos must have been extremely challenging if not a nightmare. Also, the cinematography was on point. I loved all the characters. There was lots of color and excitement.

You see, Avengers goes beyond the movies. Like Star Wars, it is woven in the fabric of popular culture. It is worldwide appealing too. It is more than just America.

The genius behind Avengers, itself, is that the franchise is movies within a movie, TV within television and well-defined characters within themselves. In other words, you can count on your kids wanting to dress up as an Avenger on Halloween. There are so many choices. Doesn’t everybody want to be a superhero?

In closing, Hollywood is changing. The movies are more daring. It is not enough to merely follow the formula anymore. You’ve got to tweak the script and challenge the status quo.

Without question, Avengers set the bar high every time. All their movies are top notch quality. They create superior original entertainment.

Avengers: Infinity War reminded me of being a blend between X-Men Apocalypse and Days of Future Past. Avengers, as a Marvel brand, takes you on an adventure. What is more, the journey is a dream come true for comic book fans. That’s why Avengers is the ultimate brand.

Why You Should Watch Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee


BY: GURU JAY

Why You Should Watch Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee



Have you seen Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee? After much deliberation I decided to watch the collection on Netflix.

At first, I was on the fence about watching the show. I didn’t know if it was worth my time. However, something told me to give it a chance.

I love to be entertained. Entertainment is a great influencer on the world. And comedy is the great equalizer.

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee appeals to those who like comedy, cars, and coffee.

So, what’s it all about?

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is exactly what the name suggests. Comedians get in a car and get coffee. Moreover, they have fun, light, and laidback conversations on their way to drinking a cup of Joe together.

I’ve seen a ton of episodes and here is my take on the TV series. Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is unique to television because unique comedians drive around in unique cars and have unique experiences.

Right now, I’m watching the last episodes because they are more relevant. Eventually, I will get around to watching the first episodes.

So far I’ve seen Ellen DeGeneres, Tracy Morgan, Dave Chappelle, Zach Galifianakis, Brian Regan, and Dana Carvey. This show is turning me into a believer.

I believe Jerry Seinfeld is a genius. I expect this show to last forever. Much of the show is filmed in Los Angeles.

Jerry Seinfeld does all the driving. Netflix does all the filming. The giant comedian teamed up with the giant Hollywood conglomerate. Who’s next…Starbucks?

Comedians themselves are interesting characters. They have awfully good stories to tell. Their lives are observed under a microscope.

Comedians are creative creatures. These lively entertainers do what doctors can’t do in some cases. In a world of so much uncertainty and heartache, comedy helps sooth the pain and heal the wounds. Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is just what the world needs, and what the doctor ordered.

Migos Vs. Wu Tang Clan


BY: GURU JAY
Migos Vs. Wu Tang Clan



Let’s discuss new school vs. old school. Migos Vs. Wu Tang Clan is an interesting comparison. The Migos belong to the new edition and the Wu Tang Clan are original gangsters.

Both groups have similarly creative names and make unique music. Migos is short for amigos- the Spanish word for friends. And clan means a group of closely knit and interrelated families.

Who doesn’t like listening to Migos? These Hip-Hop artists have been active since 2008, but not until recently has their music topped the charts. Migos, consisting of Takeoff, Quavo, and Offset, are commercially successful and relevant. Their songs have been showcased by Spotify, Apple Music, and more. 

Who remembers their extremely popular iPhone commercial?
Migos are new school with an old school vibe. The Walk It Talk It music video generates good vibrations. Migos are modern-day Beach Boys if the surfer singers could rap.

Wu Tang Clan’s music was commercially successful and stays relevant. Google made the widely popular Shimmy song commercial a couple years ago. Moreover, C.R.E.A.M. (Cash Rules Everything Around Me) is Wu Tang Clan’s most famous song because money equates to success and relevancy. Still by no stretch of imagination- are they a one hit wonder.

Without question, Wu Tang Clan have made their mark on music history. Complex has complied a list of Wu Tang Clan’s 100 best songs. The rappers maintain a strong influence on a generation of music artists. Also, the band of brothers illustrate the importance of brotherhood.

Could you imagine a Migos and Wu Tang Clan collaboration? I’ve learned to not rule out anything. Plus, music is the common denominator.

Whoever Migos joins forces with, whether it’s Drake or Pusha-T, the group creates transformative music. Perhaps the difference between Migos and Wu Tang Clan are that Migos is mainstream and Wu Tang Clan is niche.

Drake Is the $100 Million Man



BY: GURU JAY
Drake Is the $100 Million Man


It’s Prime Day and I’m thinking about buying a few Scorpion albums with my money. The only problem is Amazon’s got a big glitch. I thought I write about Drake until Amazon gets fixed. Right now, I’m listening to his music as I write.

I first listened to Scorpion on Spotify when it was initially released on June 29. If you don’t know what Spotify is, it is the Netflix of music. As I listened to Drake on Spotify, I was impressed from the very beginning.

Since June 29, I’ve played Drake’s music every day. I can recall listening to it on Independence Day. The experience was like watching a Will Smith movie. It was a pleasure to hear his rhymes and beats.

Drake is no stranger to taking over. Do you remember when Hotline Bling was the music video of the year? “And I know when that hotline bling, that can only mean one thing.”

Drake is taking over Summer 2018. We will look back on this moment and recognize the summer as a historic period in music. You watch as people come up with stories in the future.

Drake is the $100 million man for 100 million reasons. His music gets inside of your head. You are bound to memorize his lyrics. It’s only a matter of time before you know In My Feelings by heart.

“Kiki, do you love me?”

I can’t wait for him to collaborate with The Weeknd, who made $92 million last year according to Forbes.

I believe Drake’s Scorpion album will eclipse the popularity of Thriller. Everyone acknowledges Thriller as Michael Jackson’s magnus opus. Well, Scorpion is Drake’s magnus opus.

The hit album is a popular culture phenomenon. First, we saw God’s Plan turn into a colossal hit. Then, Nice for What became a theme song for independent women. Let’s not forget his music videos are cream of the crop. I’m talking top notch quality.

Now, In My Feelings might turn into the song of the year. People are literally going wild because of In My Feelings. Have you heard of the In My Feelings challenge? It’s amazing how much Drake is impacting the world with his songs.

Scorpion was released 3 weeks ago and has already broken all time streaming records. It is no coincidence Drake features Michael Jackson on his album.

Drake is a modern-day Picasso. His songs are works of arts. Like Beyonce and Jay Z, Drake has made a masterpiece. Unlike Bey and Jay, you could say he did it all by himself because his name alone is on the album cover.

Listening to Drake’s music gives you good vibes. For the most part, his music stays positive. However, he had to address his Pusha T beef. I don’t understand these rap beefs sometimes.

Applaud Drake because he is willing to tell his side of the story. I hope Amazon gets fixed, so I can buy the Drake albums. In the meantime, I’m going to keep listening to his music.

Why Zoë Kravitz Is One of Hollywood's Hottest Stars

BY: GURU JAY


Zoë Kravitz is one of Hollywood’s hottest actresses. She is one of the brightest stars in showbiz. Right now, the 29 year-old is one of the best under 30.
The celebrity is making headlines for dating Karl Glusman. She could turn him into the next Leonardo DiCaprio if he’s lucky. Pop Sugar is comparing their romance to Rihanna’s love interests.
Who wouldn’t like to date Zoë? The entertainer is so beautiful. Look at her, she is stunning.
Plus, when she is not making headlines she is making major movies. Her career is in the beginning stages and she’s already done fantastic work. You can watch her Pretend We’re Kissing and Good Kill movies on Netflix. Also, she was wonderful in X-Men: First Class.
Although she received her start in No Reservations in 2007, I feel the 2011 X-Men movie put her on the map. She shared the X-Men universe with Halle Berry. Like Halle, she is a true artist. She is in route to become the next big thing.
Zoë Kravitz does whatever it takes. Moreover, Zoë  Kravitz is living the Hollywood dream. I think she will win an Academy Award in due time.
It’s amazing what she gets to do for a living. She gets to star in the biggest blockbusters and critically-acclaimed Indie films. Zoë roleplays to perfection and shines like a diamond on the silver screen.
Kravitz doesn’t make bad movies. Every script she touches turns to gold. She is a great supporting actor on par with Rosario Dawson. However, if given the opportunity she won’t disappoint as a lead actress.
Do you follow her on SnapChat, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter?
The daughter of Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz is making her parents proud. She is a Tinseltown favorite and she’s gaining momentum. The star is steadily building her brand name and reputation.

Kelly Clarkson Vs. Carrie Underwood

BY: GURU JAY


Kelly Clarkson Vs. Carrie Underwood 


Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood are making a comeback around the same time. Clarkson started a tradition where she sings Tinder profiles on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Carrie Underwood is still a perfect 10 after her infamous face accident. The former American Idols are the TV show’s most famous singers for a major reason.

Without question, the names Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood will go down in music history. Clarkson and Underwood are a part of the fabric of American popular culture. Plus, who can stop listening to their music?

Carrie and Kelly can sing with the best, but who’s better? Is Carrie a better singer because she dominates her Country genre? Or is Kelly Clarkson a better entertainer because she concentrates on Pop, a more competitive field in a crowded arena?

It’s easy to say one is better than the other, but it’s harder to prove. I feel in my gut that Kelly Clarkson is the one I want to sing when it counts. However, Carrie Underwood cuts sharper records in the studio booth.

Kelly Clarkson, 36, was born and raised in Texas. That can only mean one thing. She has one of the biggest hearts. With heart, comes soul.


Carrie Underwood, 35, was born in Oklahoma. She grew up listening to country legends like Dolly Parton. Nowadays, she’s influenced country music artists in her own right. In my eyes, she’s a brighter star than Miranda Lambert, who helps define modern day country music.

Overall, Carrie has had a more financially successful career than Kelly. However, the major difference is the Texas songstress has yet to reach the peak. Kelly Clarkson is one hit shy away from greatness.

Clarkson conquers the microphone, but Underwood’s voice is too great to ignore. Maybe, Carrie Underwood’s vocal chords are superior to Kelly Clarkson’s chops. But deep down where it matters, the diaphragm, Kelly has the voice. That’s why she is a coach on the Voice.

It’s up to the fans to decide. Who is better between Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood? I think I’ve answered the question. Your mind is made up on Carrie, but your gut yelps Kelly.

Tove Lo Vs. Charli XCX



BY: GURU JAY

Tove Lo Vs. Charli XCX


Tove Lo and Charli XCX collaborated in a new music video named bitches. It was released a few weeks ago. You can find it on YouTube under tovelomusic.

The music video is interesting. There are all sorts of goodies. But I should warn you, it should come with a disclaimer. Tove Lo and Charli XCX push more buttons than the Pussycat Dolls.

I predict tovelomusic will gain more traction. Plus, Charli XCX is at the cusp of superstardom. Both music artists have a bright future.

Tove Lo is 30, and Charli XCX is only 25. They have accomplished a lot already, but their best is yet to come. In 10 years, you’ll read this blog and see how far they came.

Charli XCX is English as an English muffin. And Tove Lo is Sweden’s GNP. The Rolling Stone called Tove Lo Sweden’s Darkest Export. These girls create awesome music. Music lovers can appreciate their devotions to their crafts.

It doesn’t take an Etsy account, to see these musicians are extremely gifted. How much would you pay for Tove Lo’s hand-written lyrics? Who wants a Charli XCX life-size poster?


Charli XCX and Tove Lo have built international brand names. Their music dominates the Billboard Hot 100 charts. You expect them to win awards every year.

You can’t deny that Tove Lo makes hits. The Platinum singer’s dynamic hit list include Cool Girl, Talking Body, Moments, and True Diaster. Charli XCX has a great deal of potential. Tove Lo can relax some because she’s been there and done that. Habits (Stay High) was a collosal hit.

Additionally, Charli XCX made public the official video of 5 in the morning just hours ago. What are your favorite Charli XCX songs? I like Boom Clap, Break the Rules, Roll With Me, and Femmebot.

Comparing Charli XCX and Tove Lo is like comparing fruits. One is an orange, the other is an apple. Both are undeniably sweet and delicious.

Chance the Rapper Vs. Big Sean RAP BATTLE


BY: GURU JAY
Chance the Rapper Vs. Big Sean RAP BATTLE

Who wins a rap battle between Chance the Rapper and Big Sean? Whose music do you want to dance to at the night club ‘til dawn? Which rapper would you prefer to rap at your wedding reception? All these questions and more will be answered in this blog.
Let the Chance the Rapper Vs. Big Sean RAP BATTLE begin!
I remember Chance the Rapper’s first appearance on Saturday Night Live (SNL). The sketch comedy TV show did several promotions starring Chance. One of those featured Pete Davidson and Andy Samberg.
At the time I didn’t know his music, but after his SNL performance I wanted to get to know it. I soon found out that man could rap. I’ve listened to his music in clubs and on road trips. What draws me to Chance the Rapper is his creativity. I feel Chance the Rapper is more creative than Big Sean.
I’ve also listened to Big Sean’s music at night clubs. I believe Big Sean music wins big at the club. If you want to dance, then Big Sean’s music is better than Chance the Rapper. Big Sean makes better dance music. However, if you’re listening for the sake of lyrics and rhythm, then Chance is the best.

Chance the Rapper and Big Sean both make similar music. The major difference is Big Sean represents Detroit and Chance the Rapper is an ambassador of Chicago. An important similarity is their connection to Chicago via Kanye West. For the most part, their music is positive, fun, and relevant. According to B.O.B., nowadays music artists fight for relevancy. Chance and Big have won half the battle because they’re making headlines every week.
In recent news, Chance the Rapper and Kanye West were scheduled to release a joint album sometime in the future. Some suspect the album to debut as early as this summer. If this is true, then this will fundamentally shake the Hip-Hop world.
What is your favorite Big Sean and Chance the Rapper song? I like One Man Could Change the World, Blessings (Reprise), IDFWU, Dance, and Ultralight Beam.
Choosing between Chance the Rapper and Big Sean is a difficult decision. But Big Sean wins this RAP BATTLE by a slim margin. I prefer Big Sean rap at my wedding reception. Big Sean is more established, although Chance the Rapper is a big deal. I side with the establishment.

Luke Cage Is Back and Better Than Ever


BY: GURU JAY


Have you heard? Luke Cage is back and better than ever. Days ago, Netflix released season 2 of the hit Marvel series.

Check out Luke Cage! You won’t regret it. The show is the total package.

It has everything you want from action to romance. The first episode begins with an unforgettable fight scene. Plus, the ever so beautiful Rosario Dawson returns as Luke’s love interest.

I remember when Luke Cage (Mike Colter) had a recurring role on Jessica Jones. Mike was a major reason fans kept watching the TV show. I can’t imagine anybody else playing the lead character but Mike Colter. He made me want to be a bartender for a week.

Luke Cage sets the bar high. If you don’t know, he has super human strength and a bullet-proof body. He is the superhero from New York City everybody loves and loves to hate.

You see the crime fighter has made a few enemies along the way. In season 2, he tackles drug dealers from the start. He must overcome organized crime to get to the end game.

Expect season 2 to be exciting. From what I’ve seen so far, the acting is incredible. And the script is well-written.

Luke Cage goes by many names. One of those names is Power Man. The other is Carl Lucas.

Luke’s father, a preacher man, refuses to call him anything except his government name. His father gives a thrilling speech in the beginning of season 2 episode 1. His father strongly disapproves of Luke Cage’s way of life.

Still, Luke Cage is raising hell up in Harlem. He is kicking ass and taking names. Although he’s a good guy, he must worry about both sides of the law. Harlem’s hero is ready for a challenge. He may have to take on the devil. Watch Luke Cage and come see what all the fuss is about.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Five Stars

BY: GURU JAY


Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Five Stars


Are you binge-watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt? Part 1 of Season 4 is now available on Netflix. I highly recommend watching this comedy.

Season 4 is six episodes of fun. Plus, the first 3 seasons are enjoyable too. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a very popular show.

According to Streamline, the sitcom is number 1 on Netflix. Additionally, it is the best comedy TV show by other metrics. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt competes with ABC, FOX, CBS, and NBC sitcoms. Soon, I believe Netflix will release ratings to prove it.

Here is a brief background of the TV show. The show is about a cult survivor named Kimmy Schmidt. Kimmy ultimately ends up living in New York City after the cult is rescued from a bunker. They were living underground for 15 years.

She must cope with trauma and start a new life. Kimmy deals with real world issues such as underemployment and low social status. At first, she can’t even find an apartment there.

Eventually, the now nanny moves in with Titus Andromedon. If you thought Kimmy Schmidt was a character, then Titus is another thing coming. In many ways, Titus is the backbone of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Every episode gives you something different. Ellie Kemper is awesome. She does a fantastic job staying in character and progressing.

Ellie Kemper tickles your funny bone… with a feather of course. She’s extremely likeable and pleasant. I wonder what is next for Kemper. She should star in major movies.

Moreover, there is a natural flow and sequence of events on this sitcom. The writing is terrific. And the characters are unbelievable.

Your sense of humor is taken on a journey. If you like over-the-top jokes and want a thrilling ride, then get on the bandwagon. I can’t promise you Lyft or Uber but you get five stars.

How Camila Cabello Reached the Next Level

BY: GURU JAY


How Camila Cabello Reached the Next Level


Former Fifth Harmony singer Camila Cabello is now officially a solo artist. In January of this year, Camila released her self-titled debut album and broke records in the process. Her song Havana is most streamed song by a solo female artist on Spotify.

Moreover, she has won more than 25 major awards for her music according to Wikipedia. Camila will win more and more because she is super talented. The princess needs her crown.

Camila Cabello is making history. She is one of the hottest singers in showbiz right now. People must listen to her voice.

It appears the Cuban celebrity has reached the next level. She is taking over the music industry. It’s amazing what she has already achieved; and she’s only 21.

Camila works hard. That’s why she is touring the world and earning her keep. She could build a big brand name like Jennifer Lopez. The Cuban entertainer can learn from the Puerto Rican superstar. Also, if she improves her dancing she could become the new Shakira.

Camila can sing just as good as Selena Gomez. And she’s fine enough to date Justin Bieber. It’s only a matter of time before someone special puts a ring on it. Everybody is interested in who she’s dating

The Latina entertainer attracts a wide demographic. Her music is listened to by millions. That’s mass appeal.

She has made a name for herself in a short span of time. She is a few hits away from making a masterpiece. With the right producer and the right lyrics she is guaranteed a Grammy. Plus, every song she makes has Platinum potential.

Camila Cabello has reached the next level and will never be the same- just like the song.

At first, I was against her leaving Fifth Harmony because I wanted another Destiny’s Child. However, she’s on her way like Queen Bee. I like to call her Princess Cee.

Why Dua Lipa Is a Big Deal


BY: GURU JAY

Why Dua Lipa Is a Big Deal


What do you know about Dua Lipa? Dua Lipa is a big name in the entertainment industry. Watch it get bigger in the coming years.

Who exactly is Dua Lipa? Dua Lipa is a big deal. The celebrity is 22 years old. She was born in London, England. And she has Albanian roots.

I discovered Dua Lipa on Twitter. Not only can she sing her butt off, she has smart fashion sense too. In a way, she is a lot like Bebe Rexha but bigger and better. Moreover, the British singer has sung her way into the hearts of millions of fans.

If you desire hot music, this hot songstress can sing it for you. She also models. In fact, she got her start in showbiz as a model.

Do you think she’s a hotter model or singer? One thing is for sure: she is hot. It’s ironic Dua Lipa even made a song called Hotter Than Hell.

Check out her Saturday Night Live performances. You’ll find she has the chops. She can croon with the best of them.

Dua Lipa is a big deal. I’ve been blogging for 5 years now and I’ve seen all kind of artists come and go. Some of them just didn’t have the goods. You see the best ones have a certain pedigree.

Dua Lipa seems to be high caliber. She’s extremely popular in the United Kingdom; and in a matter of time her fame in America will skyrocket. You could argue she’s already there, but she’s not quite a superstar.

I look forward to more of what Dua Lipa has to offer. She’s on top of her game. Plus, she’s bold.

I believe she has done a superb job launching her career. She’s not afraid of the spotlight. That’s very important because conquering fear is the first step. Without question, Dua Lipa is a big deal.
