Who's the Best Bella? Bella Thorne Vs. Bella Hadid


Back Story

Many Hollywood stars share the same name. And sharing is caring. You're reading this now because you care about celebrities to some degree.

Doesn't everybody have a favorite celebrity? What famous people would you like most to meet? Imagine meeting two celebrities at one time.

Meet Bella Thorne and Bella Hadid.

I've already asked who's the best Emma. Now the question is who's the best Bella. Who do you choose between Bella Thorne and Bella Hadid? Maybe, you want the best of both worlds. Well, this is your stop.

Bella Thorne has shown she's a highly qualified actress. Her filmography is growing by the minute as her IMDB profile updates everyday. The star of umpteen Disney movies has a bright future. What is more, Thorne is fresh. Just ask Rotten Tomatoes.

Currently, she's making headlines for apparently dating Kourtney Kardashian's ex boyfriend Scott Disick. Bella Thorne shouldn't have a problem in the dating department. Anyone she chooses is lucky to have her.

Moreover, Bella Hadid has proven she's one of America's top models. The supermodel is following the footsteps on the runway strutted by Tyra Banks. Bella Hadid aka Gigi Hadid's sister is shining in many ways inside Hollywood.

The star is demonstrating her natural worth in the entertainment industry. What more can she do to show she's second to none? The Weeknd music videos are only the tip of the iceberg. Hadid is just getting started. Give her 3 years and she'll surprise you. Vogue is attached to Bella like Velcro.

In comparison, Bella Hadid is the bigger name at this moment in time. However, pretty soon Bella Thorne's name will become bigger than Hadid because of Disney's history and track record. Like Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus, I see Bella Thorne going places. It's only a matter of time before I'm proven right.

A Conversation On the Greatness of Brie Larson


A Conversation On the Greatness of Brie Larson

Photo By: Wikimedia Commons

It's been reported in Vanity Fair and via other sources that Brie Larson gets by with a little help from her friends Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone. Talk about star power! Lawrence and Stone are two of Hollywood's finest actresses. As you'll soon discover, Miss Larson keeps very good company.

Emma Stone won the Oscar for La La Land this year and Jennifer Lawrence received one for Silver Linings Playbook in 2012. Clearly, Brie Larson belongs in the best actress conversation as well. Brie earned an Academy Award for her performance in Room last year. Her bevy of talents should be showcased like Olivia Wilde's. Don't underestimate her capabilities.

Are you looking forward to seeing Brie enter the Marvel universe as Captain Marvel or what? Who would love watching Larson and Scarlett Johansson perform in scenes together? In a sense, Larson is the antithesis of Angelina Jolie. While Angelina portrays the bad girl image, Brie is a good girl. What is more, she embraces characters who are largely likable protagonists.

Everyone can agree that this celebrity is destined for greatness. You'll soon find her footprints cemented in stone on Hollywood Boulevard. Plus, you won't find a more polished gem in showbiz anywhere. Producers see Brie's smile and personality as entertainment assets. She looks like a younger Julia Roberts and acts like Sandra Bullock.

Many celebrities come across as disingenuous. However, Brie seems pleasant and humble. Did you know she was raised in Sacramento, California? She went to school for acting at the American Conservatory Theater.

I highly recommend watching Brie Larson movies including: The Gambler, Free Fire, and Kong: Skull Island. She plays Mark Wahlberg's love interest in the Gambler. Additionally, she is the leading actress of Free Fire and Kong: Skull Island. Also, I look forward to seeing the Glass Castle, Basmati Blues and Unicorn Store.

How Lorde Generates Traction


How Lorde Generates Traction

If you want something to do, why don't you listen to some music? Listening to music is more than just a hobby. Listening to music is a lifestyle. Can you imagine life without Vevo, Spotify, and Coachella?

Have you heard any good songs lately? I'll share what's new on my playlist with readers. Recently, I have discovered Lorde. I highly recommend listening to the singer. I plan on attending her concert in the future.

Her sound is similar to Lady Gaga's futuristic music. She sounds like a talking saxophone. There's something special in her voice that only a few singers possess. No one can deny her creative streak.

They say if you can make it here in New York, you can make it anywhere. 20 year-old Lorde demonstrated her big time abilities in the Big Apple as musical guest on Saturday Night Live last March. Her performance received an ample round of applause from a lively crowd. It wouldn't surprise me if Lorde is invited back to host as early as next year.

The Tennis Court songstress makes headlines like Serena Williams weekly. She may even surpass Serena's popularity one day soon. But right now the Wimbledon legend is on top.

Still, Lorde has the whole world ahead of her. Did you know the sexy songstress originates out of New Zealand? The hot Iggy Azalea originates out of Australia, which is not too distant from the Green Light singer's headquarters.

As a result of hard work and good looks, Lorde is a major trend in search results. In fact, she was the 5th most Googled celebrity a month ago. I believe she is in the process of building a global fan base right now. She generates a lot of traction in magazines, on blogs, and around town.

The Revelation of TV Action Star Jaimie Alexander


Photo By: Wikimedia Commons

Jaimie Alexander kicks ass and takes names on the Blindspot television series. Blindspot is a popular TV thriller airing on NBC Wednesdays. It is currently in the 2nd season.

Jaimie Alexander phenomenally plays Jane Doe on Blindspot. She doesn't miss a beat working with the FBI. Moreover, the show keeps you in ultimate suspense. Another angle pops up, just when you figure out a clue.

You see her tattoos help solve pertinent cases. They give the FBI a significant edge. I recommend watching Blindspot every week if you enjoy putting pieces together. You'll love unwrapping the mystery with likable characters.

Also, if you like Kerry Washington on Scandal, then you'll like Jaimie Alexander on Blindspot. Scandal gives you the TV Politics and Blindspot gives you the TV Action. I wonder when Washington's and Alexander's paths will cross. I know when they do meet, we're destined to see greatness.

In a sense, Blindspot is similar to Quantico. Jaimie Alexander is the centerpiece like Priyanka Chopra. In the latest episode, the DOJ investigates a supposed leak. They try to pin responsibility on Assistant Director Weller, but Jane Doe sticks up for her “man.” There's so much packed in one episode to make your head explode.

Blindspot deals with current issues in an explosive way. They get to the bottom of it without beating around the bush too much. The question is can you handle all the action smacking you in your face.

Jaimie Alexander reminds me of Krysten Ritter who plays Marvel's Jessica Jones (private investigator) on Netflix. She may be slim but she has super strength. In Jessica's case she has superpowers.

I look forward to seeing Jaimie pave the lane on Hollywood Boulevard. The 32 year-old actress deserves to be in more movies. She is destined to appear on the silver screen.

The Interesting Tale of Mandy Moore


The Interesting Tale of Mandy Moore

Once upon a time there were 3 princesses: Britney, Jessica, and Mandy. They were three of a kind so to say. At their peak potential, they rivaled one another.

Mandy Moore used to dominate MTV back when Carson Daly hosted Total Request Live (TRL). She could sing with the best of them including Britney Spears. She was more famous than Jessica Simpson at one point in time.

Then, something mysterious happened. She went away- not so much in the physical sense but in the supernatural sense. The pop princess was no longer famous in 2007. Yet, last year she comes out of nowhere like Supergirl all of a sudden.

I call this phenomenon the interesting tale of Mandy Moore. The multi-talented Mandy is a very intriguing specimen and fascinating story. She has her way- coming and going as she pleases. Few celebrities can enter and renter Tinseltown after spending time in Zombieland.

That's why everybody is interested in Mandy Moore's projects. This Is Us left fans literally dying for Moore. Moreover, the singer has proven she's a wonderful actress. Whatever you do, don't underestimate Mandy Moore's magnetism.

This pop princess knows how to entertain the masses. From the Princess Diaries to Tangled, she came a long way on her journey. Who wants to be her Prince Charming? At 32 years old, Mandy is still young and vibrant.

Future Hollywood stars should learn from this celebrity. If you want to succeed in the entertainment business, sometimes you need to take it slow. Far too many actors/singers rush their game and don't get to enjoy the fruits of their labors.

When you're famous, work-life balance may become nonexistent. So try to be like Mandy who is living like a fairy tale. There's a reason this princess is making headlines right now.

Why Russell Peters Is Great


Why Russell Peters Is Great

Great comedy can bring people together. Some standups don't know how to relate to everyone. That's why you see instant backlash and isolated people at shows.

It is important to win the crowd over and get them on your side. Not everyone can do this effectively. Greatness takes time, dedication, and practice. The best in showbiz don't become famous overnight.

Russell Peters is one of the greats. He belongs in the best standup comedians conversation. You see Russell engages in risky behaviors and his audience loves him for that.

This comic will make fun of anybody. Hell, he'll even make fun of himself. When you're not afraid to tell jokes, you sell out crowds easier. Moreover, he tackles challenging subjects in a sarcastic manner.

Born in Toronto Canada, he qualifies as one of the funniest Canadians. Plus, his Indian background contributes a great deal to his material. You could compare him to Aziz Ansari but there is only one Russell Peters. Make no mistake, his style and delivery are unmistakeable.

Many of his jokes are unrepeatable, of course, because they are NSFW (Not Safe For Work). In other words, repeating his comedy at your job could get you fired. So, proceed with caution. Tread on thin ice if you don't want to offend anybody.

Everyone must know the importance of timing in standup comedy. Russell Peters delivers like Amazon, right on time. Right now is Russell Peters time to shine. The celebrity is singing You Are My Sunshine on his way to the bank. He has a lot to be happy about.

The 46-year-old is one of the highest paid comedians according to Forbes. He makes $21 million per year. That's almost as much as LeBron James' take home pay. I highly recommend watching his Almost Famous standup special. And I look forward to seeing his future work.

Why Keira Knightley Is The Perfect Actress


Why Keira Knightley Is The Perfect Actress

Keira Knightley is one of my favorite actresses. I believe she is the best British entertainer right now. Moreover, her qualities as an actor are perfect. At 31, who has accomplished as much as this Hollywood star?

She poetically portrays characters on the silver screen. Also, nothing gets in the way of her delivering top notch results. Keira Knightley is known for superior performances. The Hollywood actress is laser focused in her films. You can easily see how her hard work pays dividends.

In my mind, Keira Knightley should sit next to Julia Roberts at the Academy Awards. Why don't I arrange the Oscars seating charts with Keira Knightley's Name between Roberts and mine?; that's just a suggestion. Like Brie Larson, she's one of the best actresses in showbiz. The red carpet was made for her footprints.

This phenomenal actress is one of the reasons I recommend Collateral Beauty. She helps bring the story to life as her character pulls off an amazing performance. I literally love Keira Knightley, who plays the abstract Love, in Collateral Beauty.

Additionally, she steals the spotlight from Benedict Cumberbatch in the Imitation Game. The wonderful thespian convinces the audience that her character, a cryptanalyst, helps save the world from destruction. Did you know that the movie is based on a true story?

As you can tell, Keira Knightley is everything you want in an actress. She has the look and style plus the talent minus the attitude. Sure, she seems a little sassy but that's how we like it, right? When you make it to the top, you're entitled to special privileges.

Knightley has earned significant star power by consistently shining throughout her illustrious career. She's earned endorsements by commanding attention to her cause. Through constant repetition and memorization, Keira Knightley became one of the highest paid and most in-demand actresses of all time. As far as I'm concerned, Keira Knightley is the perfect actress.

Write Bebe Rexha down on your calendar when planning for entertainment venues this year. Consider adding a date to attend her concerts. I know you can't wait until she goes on tour. She's going to win a Grammy soon; mark my word. She may even win the prestigious Best New Artist Grammy.

You can count on her songs topping the charts. It should come as no surprise that she's climbing because Bebe Rexha has laid the groundwork. The celebrity is following the Seven Steps on How to Be Famous.

I first learned about Bebe Rexha last year. Since then, I've listened to her many singles. I became an instant Rexha fan. I love I Got You. Me, Myself and I is a sensational hit. Plus, Hey Mama makes me want to dance.

She resembles Rita Ora as far as her look and style, but she's distinct enough to make her own way in the music business. I believe Bebe is a strong songwriter. She's on record with Rihanna and has worked for Eminem. Also, she's written songs for Ms. International herself Selena Gomez.

Born in one of the world's biggest cities Brooklyn, New York Bebe Rexha's popularity is soaring right now.

What's your favorite TV show? ABC offers excellent programming choices. Do you like sitcoms such as Modern Family or dramas such as Scandal? How about Quantico? Whatever you have a taste for is on ABC. Lately, I've been consuming episodes of Quantico on demand.

I can't get enough of Priyanka Chopra. The Quantico star is someone to write home about. Isn't she something special? This former Miss World may be the hottest babe on TV.

I hope they give Priyanka a pay raise because she's too good to lose. Moreover, the actor is the main reason we watch Quantico, right? Let's face it, Chopra presents a hot body of work like Sofia VergaraTV viewers are treated to one of a kind good looks.

Golden Globes 2017 Recap


Golden Globes 2017 Recap

Did you watch the Golden Globes? The Golden Globe Awards are a precursor to the Oscars. Tonight's award show was watched by approximately 20 million people. Maybe, you saw the red carpet as well.

Jimmy Fallon made a grand entrance. But the night began with Aaron Taylor-Johnson winning Best Supporting Actor for Nocturnal Nights. Later, Billy Bob Thornton gave an emotional speech.

Then, Tracee Ellis Ross graced the stage winning for Blackish. Atlanta starring Donald Glover earned the award for Best TV series. And Hacksaw Ridge received top recognition. Additionally, Sarah Paulson earned her award for the People V. O.J. Simpson.

You couldn't have asked for better presenters than Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon. Gina Rodriguez represented for the Latina women. Do you watch Jane the Virgin? Viola Davis received hard earned credit for her performance in Fences.

How could you miss the amazingly stunning Sofia Vergara on stage in her see through dress? Give credit to Carrie Underwood and Sting too. Moreover, Ryan Gosling's and Emma Stone's La la Land was given major accolades. Did Ryan Gosling give a nice acceptance speech or what?

Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer shared the stage but Hawn hogged the microphone. Tom Hiddleston scored big for the Night Manager. Claire Foy won on a large scale for the Crown. It was great seeing Casey Affleck win Best Actor for Manchester by the Sea.

Finally, Brad Pitt introduced Moonlight, which was nominated for 6 Golden Globes. Moonlight deservingly won for the best drama category. However, the spotlight shined brightest on Meryl Streep. It was definitely Meryl's moment.

Everybody did a fantastic job. It was a wonderful show. There was a ton of glitz and glamor beginning on the red carpet. They arrived in spectacular fashion inside stretch limousines. The biggest stars showed up, although everybody in showbiz and the entertainment world did not take home an award.

I think Jimmy Fallon was awesome. A lot of excitement filled the air. My main critique is where was the music? They could have used more of the music scores. What do you think? Who had the best smile? Who wore the best dress?

How Incredible Is Melissa Benoist?


How Incredible Is Melissa Benoist?

We are reentering Supergirl season 2 and it's safe to say Melissa Benoist is still super. I began binge watching Supergirl this week. And I've concluded that Melissa Benoist was put on earth to become Kara Zor-El on television. How does she do it, episode after episode? She's absolutely incredible.

You can see the determination in her eyes. Melissa Benoist seeks glory as Supergirl. She belongs in the DC Comics. It is her destiny. No doubt Henry Cavill aka Superman is impressed by the former Glee star. Don't forget that she is a multi-talented celebrity.

The triple threat actress is best suited and well-equipped. In other words, Benoist is up for the challenge at hand. So prepare yourself for a wild ride. She'll flap her cape around and fly you high like a Boeing 777. Melissa is reaching new heights by the second.

It's amazing watching Melissa in action. Whatever she touches turns to gold. I'm looking forward to her future movies. Moreover, the Hollywood star deserves a pay raise.

She's in a similar position as Hilary Duff. All she needs is one big blockbuster or an Academy Award, and she's set for life. Supergirl has a shelf-life, but Melissa Benoist's name can go down in history.

Benoist digs deep down into the heart and soul of a character. You should check out her performance in Whiplash. Not only does she play a wonderful supporting actress, she's a terrific love interest.

Maybe, Supergirl could play Batman's lover now that the Batman v. Superman saga is completed. How's that for a script? Superman and Batman end up as brother-in-laws. You get my drift (they're family). Unfortunately, the likely ending scenario is like Scarface. Do you remember the scene when Al Pacino's character Tony Montana discovered his sister Gina in lingerie at his best friend's home? They had recently got married. That's a story for another day.

Anyway, I say all this to say Melissa Benoist is absolutely incredible.

Who's Hotter Than Blake Lively?


Who's Hotter Than Blake Lively?

Hollywood has every star you could think of: from music, comedy, tv and of course movies. Being famous is harder than you think though. Entertainers are under enormous pressure to perform and exceed expectations. It's not enough to please fans anymore, you have to please producers and directors too.

Blake Lively is fastly becoming one of my favorite actresses. Can you believe the Age of Adaline actress is only 29 years old? But she has built the body of work of a 40 year old actor. Check out Blake Lively in my piece called 30 Hottest Hollywood Starlets Under 30.

It's only a matter of time before Blake Lively receives her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Celebrities like Lively walk on the red carpet for a living and receive star treatment. What is more, this celebrity can have anything she wants, all she needs to do is ask for it. You asked for it and that's why you're here.

Lively is in the process of becoming an exceptional A List actress. We're talking about the best in the business here. It wouldn't surprise if she is the highest paid actress pretty soon. She's already one of the hottest.

As you can see Blake Lively stays busy. The Gossip Girl cares about her reputation. Did you know she filmed 121 episodes in 6 seasons of Gossip Girl?

The celebrity is proof that when you play your cards right, nothing can go wrong. Everything goes as plan if you stick to the script and execute. Who's more in demand than Blake Lively right now?

The Shallows made $119 million at the box office. Cafe Society was a critical success. And All I See Is You should do well in theaters.

Moreover, she is a showbiz princess. Blake Lively is a joy to be around. The pleasant actress keeps a smile on her face no matter what. Who's hotter than Blake Lively?

Tim McGraw Vs. Garth Brooks


Tim McGraw Vs. Garth Brooks

You can only have one. Who do you choose between Tim McGraw and Garth Brooks? Who do you believe is better? I think Tim McGraw wins in the long term, but right now Garth Brooks is the best man for the job.

My motto is “may the best man win.” Moreover, May We All McGraw is letting Garth Brooks outshine him these days. You see Garth Brooks is greater in the short term. His Amazon commercials demonstrate his ability to generate massive appeal. Where are the McGraw advertisements, seriously? Maybe, I'm missing the placements.

For what it's worth, Tim McGraw has won one more Grammy than Garth Brooks (3 to 2). However, Brooks has earned 22 Academy of Country Music Awards compared to McGraw's 14. What does this say about the two country music singers? Maybe, McGraw is more mainstream and Brooks is true country.

Both celebrities deserve respect because they are legends. Is this the Luke Bryan Vs. Blake Shelton argument all over again? Luke and Blake are legends in the making. But I believe they would rather be in McGraw's shoes than Brooks' boots.

Photos By: Wikimedia Commons

It is important to pay tribute to legends while they are still here. These days celebrities are becoming scarce. In 2016, we lost a plethora of legendary entertainers. Let's appreciate who we have and show some respect. In the words of Garth Brooks, we have to appreciate them as “if tomorrow never comes.”

What's wrong with comparing celebrities? Entertainment is about having fun and escaping from harsh realities. Besides, competition makes for better music.

Let's go back to the question at hand. Remember, you can only have one. The answer depends on whether you want your steak rare or well done.

I don't mind waiting for the flower to bloom, so I choose Tim McGraw. McGraw is a sensible choice for a guru, who loves Country. I'll take my time meditating, then I'll listen to Tim sing.

Is Aloe Blacc Another John Legend?


Is Aloe Blacc Another John Legend?

Nowadays, the deep sounding voice is rare in music. That's what makes Aloe Blacc a diamond in the rough. Now, he's not Barry White but you get the picture. It's hard to argue with the fact Aloe is special. He's another John Legend.

Before John Legend fans launch an attack on me, allow me to explain myself. John Legend is a far better singer than Aloe Blacc and almost everybody else. However, what Aloe Blacc lacks in raw talent, he makes up for with soul. You can't deny that Aloe Blacc is one of the most passionate crooners showbiz has ever seen.

Justin Bieber, Shawn Mendes, Justin Timberlake and most other male vocalists are known for their high pitches. But who wants to live in a world where music all sounds the same? No knock on Biebs, Mends, and Timbs but the fans have spoken. They want something different from the status quo.

Aloe Blacc is different. He doesn't subscribe to the status quo at all. You know how they say some writers such as Herman Melville were ahead of their time. I believe this singer is ahead of his time.

Here's why...

He crosses genres. Who else sings pop, country, and hip-hop? You could say that Nelly crosses all three genres but I remind you that the Hot in Here artist is a rapper.

What is more, Aloe Blacc makes meaningful music. The singer sings about what's important in the world. He doesn't brag about how much money he makes and how many girlfriends he has or the good life. Did you know his nickname is Mr. Frugal? I call this Hollywood Conservatism.

I've been following Aloe Blacc since his I Need A Dollar days. Green Lights is one of my favorite Aloe Blacc songs. Moreover, I play I'm the Man (Explicit version) when I feel the need. Lately, I've been casually listening to his songs on Vevo.

Do you agree that Aloe Blacc is another John Legend?

Why Natalie Portman Is Worth $1 Billion


Why Natalie Portman Is Worth $1 Billion

Photos By: Wikimedia Commons

Actors come in many shapes, colors, and sizes. Natalie Portman is an actress of the finest variety. Standing 5'3”, the brunette is entering her prime earning years at age 35.

The Academy Award winning actress has a ton of earning power left still. Portman plays real life First Lady Kennedy in the Jackie movie. Moreover, you can expect a top notch performance from her in the Annihilation movie, which is currently in post-production. As long as the Hollywood star continues to make relevant films, she'll never be out of work. There's a reason this celebrity is always on the job.

Without question, screenwriters keep her in mind when developing their characters and plot. You can't tell me the Black Swan wasn't made especially for Natalie Portman. Her role in Thor was also noteworthy. The Thor movies have generated north of $1 billion thus far. You'll find Portman doesn't disappoint you at the box office or on the red carpet.

The celebrity is making strides toward perfection. Natalie Portman's career compares favorably to Katherine Hepburn. Natalie's name rivals Julia Roberts if you ask me. Any producer/director would love working with Portman because she's extremely talented. They would feel honored as well as lucky to have her.

Natalie Portman doesn't show any signs of slowing down. No doubt the Other Boleyn Girl taught Scarlett Johansson a few tricks. She's one of the best actresses because she's built a voluptuous body of work. Plus, the beautiful actress has been blessed with irresistible genes.

The Harvard educated thespian seized her opportunity to shine among the brightest stars. She's created a path of greatness. Portman paid the price of admission; and, that's why actresses such as Kristen Stewart are able to flourish.

Moviegoers expect the best from Natalie Portman movies. The Hollywood star delivers greatness to each scene. It's easy to see why Natalie Portman is worth $1 billion.
