Marlon & Naked Movie Review


Photo By: Wikimedia Commons

Yesterday Marlon Wayans returned to prime time TV. Who remembers the Wayans Brothers? His new sitcom is simply called Marlon. As expected, Marlon is hilarious like the man it is named after. 2 episodes aired back to back on NBC. So, families were rewarded with a full hour of funny. I enjoyed every minute of it.

Marlon goes wild. I've never seen a comedian more physical than him. Have you? He reminded me of Martin. I feel Marlon has gotten funnier over the years.

The other characters were great too. I got love for Essence Atkins and her portrayal of Marlon's ex wife. Plus, Bresha Webb had a nice role.

I want to see Marlon succeed. There are 8 shows already lined up; and I believe there's potential for more. If you want to literally laugh your ass off, then watch Marlon Wayans perform on Mondays.

In addition, Marlon Wayans has a new movie on Netflix called Naked. The movie was released on August 11th. I highly recommend seeing the movie. I watched it last night. You'll enjoy the film because it's original.

The film is about a substitute teacher (Marlon Wayans) marrying a doctor (Regina Hall). Her father thinks she could do a lot better. I don't want to give away too much of the plot because I want you to watch it. However, Marlon's character gets stuck in an elevator naked over and over again. I believe you'll like it.

Wayans plays the hell out of the character. Overall, Naked was well written. I gave it 5 stars because that's the highest rating you could give. Brian McKnight makes a noteworthy appearance. Does he get naked too? You got to watch and see.

Marlon Wayans isn't putting all his eggs into one basket. He is diversifying his talents. Moreover, he has mastered comedy.

Who Is the Best James Bond?


Who Is the Best James Bond?

Daniel Craig confirmed that he will return to play James Bond in an upcoming film. At Guru Jay, we recognize the best. Which brings me to my question: Who is the best James Bond? Is Daniel Craig the best to ever play James Bond? I want to know your thoughts. Here are mine.

First of all, I don't believe Daniel Craig is the best. I thought the producers were trying to find a new James Bond. Didn't you think the same thing? What happened? Daniel Craig doesn't compare to Sean Connery or Pierce Brosnan. I'm sorry. Now his movies are great but his acting is only good when compared to the legends. I don't think I'm being harsh. Maybe, I am but you want my honest opinion I'll give it to you.

Daniel Craig doesn't have charisma like Connery and Brosnan. There is a reason our grandmas love Sean Connery to a fault. And our mothers couldn't get enough of Brosnan back in the day. I don't want to knock Daniel Craig too much, but it's time for a new James Bond.

I believe the greatest actor to play James Bond is Sean Connery. However, I believe the best James Bond is Pierce Brosnan. Sean Connery is one of the greatest actors of all time, but he's not the essence of James Bond. Pierce Brosnan is the essence of James Bond. When James Bond comes to mind, I think of Piece Brosnan first.

What are your favorite James Bond movies? My favorite James Bond movie is Die Another Day. I enjoyed the Halle Berry iconic bikini beach scene. After you read this blog, I recommend you check out this interesting Wikipedia Page. You'll discover there has been a total of 13 James Bonds.

To conclude, the second best James Bond is Sean Connery. Daniel Craig is probably in the top five but Pierce Bronsan is the best James Bond unequivocally. Let's start the discussion.

Why Sam Hunt Is Phenomenal

Why Sam Hunt Is Phenomenal

Sam Hunt is scheduled to perform at the CMA Fest on Wednesday. Maybe, after reading this blog post you will tune into the event to see him. It all starts tomorrow at 8 pm on ABC. The biggest names will perform from Blake Shelton to Luke Bryan, and Carrie Underwood. I know people who are watching strictly because of Sam Hunt's appearance though. The celebrity is having a great year.

Sam Hunt is down to earth and out of this world. His music is undeniably great. Greatness recognizes greatness. I'm interested in seeing what's next in store for Sam Hunt. The 15 in a 30 Tour is going viral on Instagram and Twitter. Hunt's music doesn't appear to be slowing down; he's going full speed ahead. I look forward to his future albums, singles, and concerts. It would be nice to see him live in concert.

I know Sam Hunt will give a phenomenal performance. The 32 year old singer originates out of Nashville, Tennessee. So, the Country singer will be right at home. He can kick off his boots and make himself comfortable. I expect the Body Like a Back Road singer to throw a few curveballs and sliders here and there. It should be fun time because of a sexy crowd. Country music lovers are some of the best fans in the world. A Country Star is only as good as his fans. What is Sam Hunt without Hunters?

I consider Take Your Time to be a classic. Did you know Take Your Time went Platinum 4 times? Body Like a Back Road went Platinum 3 times already. It's only a matter of time before Sam Hunt wins a Grammys. There's a Grammy with his name on it. What do you think is the best Sam Hunt song?

In a nutshell, Sam Hunt will give a phenomenal performance because he is phenomenal.

What Is Game of Thrones Without Emilia Clarke?


What Is Game of Thrones Without Emilia Clarke?

I blogged about Emilia Clarke's portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen as a major reason people watch Game of Thrones in a recent blogpost entitled Why Game of Thrones Is the Number 1 TV Show. I still stand by that assertion. Without Emilia Clarke, Game of Thrones would not be the same though. What Chris Martin is to Coldplay and what Kaley Cuoco is to the Big Bang Theory, Emilia Clarke is to Game of Thrones.

Her character and the actress herself has evolved through the years. This blogpost hopes to highlight or at least shine a light on some of her excellence. In my eyes, Emilia Clarke is the English version of Scarlett Johansson. You can't deny that her beauty is a factor for fans tuning in every Sunday on HBO. Moreover, you can't deny that her talent is another factor fans are glueing their eyeballs to their 4K Ultra and HD screens. The equation is simple. Beauty + Talent = Movie Star.

The Hollywood actress turned 30 years old on October 23rd. She started filming Game of Thrones in her mid-twenties. I believe she has became more beautiful and more talented within that time frame. Moreover, she has a good sense of humor and is a pleasant personality, which is rare. I recommend watching a few interviews and getting to know her when you get the chance. I'm providing a brief clip at the end of this post for your enjoyment.

What is Game of Thrones without Emilia Clarke? Her character's long golden flowing locks are signature to the series. Plus, I can see the show staying in production for another 5 years. You see Game of Thrones is based on a book by George R.R. Martin. Emilia Clarke is appealing to book lovers, especially fantasy genre aficionados in the realm of television. Fans on both sides are pleased with her characterization. Chime in your comments. You're welcome at

A Farewell to Orphan Black


A Farewell to Orphan Black

My British friends and many Americans were fans of Orphan Black. I decided to watch Orphan Black after noticing my Twitter feed full of #OrphanBlack s. I had featured the show in a blog post back in March 2014. My blog has been around for a relatively long time on the Internet.

I've been trying to figure out who is Elizabeth Childs? So, I pulled an all nighter Saturday to get to the bottom of it. I still haven't been to sleep. But I'm having fun blogging. Time flies when you're doing something you love to do.

I checked it out to see if it was any good. Overall, I was impressed. The concept was intriguing.

Orphan Black explored urgent issues in today's society. It also showed a refreshing perspective on life in general. Now that it is completed, I plan on watching every single episode. I wasn't late to the bandwagon because I'm not a bandwagon jumper. I was always aware of the show's greatness. That's why they call me the Entertainment Guru.

There's just so much TV you can consume in your personal life. You got to make time for books, music, comedy, and movies too.

For the record, I didn't binge watch Orphan Black. I watched 2 episodes through and through. We do ourselves a disservice when we binge watch, sometimes.

The genius of Orphan Black is that it was an imported TV show. Originality is rare in the film business. Hollywood remakes Remakes. You read that right. Orphan Black was as original as they came in entertainment and showbiz.

I wonder what's next for Tatiana Maslany and the amazing cast. It appears Orphan Black is officially ending after 5 seasons. The show is over. They say it's a wrap. 5 seasons is a long enough time. Plus, I believe the whole story was told and that's what is important. This is a farewell to Orphan Black.

Planet of the Apes Trilogy Movie Analysis


Photos By: Wikimedia Commons

War for the Planet of the Apes is a fantastic conclusion to the Planet of the Apes franchise. I've seen all three movies in the theaters and give each one high praise. Here's my analysis. The Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the first in the series, was a great start. And the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the second one, was extraordinary.

Overall, the acting was phenomenal. Andy Serkis portrays Caesar perfectly in every movie. His character literally evolves on screen. James Franco deserves credit for his contribution as Dr. Rodman in the original. Finally, Woody Harrelson deserves respect for his portrayal of the Colonel in the finale.

It's hard to say which movie is the best because each movie has its own intrinsic value. The Rise contains the most science fiction. Sci-Fi lovers can appreciate the experiments on chimpanzees because that's science fiction at its core. But I believe the Dawn contains the best scenes. Who can forget Koba's iconic machine gun scene?

With that said, the Dawn is still not better than the Rise. What is the Dawn without the Rise? The Rise sets up the story so that the Dawn can be great. And the Dawn sets up the story so that War can be greater. Somehow they all work together.

However, as a standalone film I rank War higher than the others. The director did not hold back. Matt Reeves used cutting edge technology and advanced techniques. His directing has become better over the years. Plus, the cinematography is revolutionary. There are only a dozen or so movies with arguably better photography than War for the Planet of the Apes.

The writing is not all that good in the Dawn. But I must say, I'm impressed by the writing in War. It reminds me of the Rise.
Chime in your comments. What are your thoughts on the Planet of the Apes Trilogy?

Why Game of Thrones Is the Number 1 TV Show


Why Game of Thrones Is the Number 1 TV Show

Have you ever wondered what is the number 1 TV show? Game of Thrones is the best thing on television since the Big Bang in the beginning. As far as popularity and ratings are concerned, Game of Thrones has easily became the number 1 TV show no matter how you slice it. Here's why.

You see, people subscribe to HBO solely to watch the fantasy TV show. Moreover, the show is sensational. It's so sensational that it has become a part of popular culture. Whether we are talking American vernacular or British jargon, everyone is familiar with dragon eggs by now.

Game of Thrones means the world to HBO. George R.R. Martin has built an ironclad brand. Plus, the producers are cash-cows to the cable TV network. We haven't seen anything quite like Game of Thrones in the history of TV. What other show is setting records in the seventh season? That's unheard of. I believe the show's secret is the introduction of new characters and the elimination of old characters.

HBO recently stated the channel's intellectual property had been compromised in a cyberattack and hacking. Material from Game of Thrones was released on the world wide web ahead of schedule. It seems scenarios such as these are becoming commonplace. Before HBO, Netflix was hacked. Before Netflix, Disney was hacked.

It is interesting that Game of Thrones is becoming more and more popular. I believe Emilia Clarke's portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen is a major reason people watch. Emilia Clarke is a fine Hollywood actress, who fascinates the audience.

I love Game of Thrones because fantasy has always intrigued me. I grew up loving J.K. Rowling and the Lord of the Rings. Game of Thrones is a current inspiration to me and millions of others. Along with watching the TV show, I encourage you to read the books. See firsthand why Game of Thrones is the number 1 TV show.

Who's Your Favorite? Favorite 5 Female Comedians


Who's Your Favorite? Favorite 5 Female Comedians

Comedy is an art form and comedians are artists. Let's appreciate the art of these fine female comedians. They work hard on honing their craft. That's why it is important we recognize their contributions. Without further ado... here are my favorite 5 female comedians

Tina Fey is my number 5. She would have ranked higher if she were more active. Where are you, Tina? Fans are waiting for another 30 Rock. Still, you can't take away from her genius. The former Saturday Night Live player holds all the cards. Have you seen her American Express commercials?

My number 4 is Margaret Cho. It's a shame that she doesn't get enough recognition. Cho knows how to push your buttons. Her comedy has you on the edge of your seat. Over the years, Margaret Cho has undoubtedly perfected her craft. Have you seen her music videos? Check out this blog post.

Whitney Cummings belongs at number 3. She is the best comedy writer on this list. If I were writing about comedy writers exclusively, she would be number 1. Did you know she is the key to the success of 2 Broke Girls? That show is a part of American culture. As you can see, Whitney Cummings directly impacts pop culture.


At number 2 is Iliza Shlesinger. She is an underrated comedian. It's about time she got her own TV show. Hook her up, Comedy Central. The standup girl is one of the best standup comedians on this list. Iliza is a natural at making people laugh.

Amy Schumer takes the number 1 spot because she is a workhorse. This list had to include her on top. She's always making movies and doing standup specials. I recently saw Snatched. I haven't seen Trainwreck, but I hear it's hilarious. 

Who's your favorite female comedian? Chime in your comments.

The Irony of Binge-Watching Orange Is the New Black Season 5


The Irony of Binge-Watching Orange Is the New Black Season 5

I hope you had an amazing 4th of July. I hope you saw fireworks, ate barbecue ribs, and didn't have to work. If you did have to work, I hope you received holiday pay.

I decided early 4th of July to binge-watch Orange Is the New Black (OITNB) season 5. Late at night I find myself binge-watching episodes of OITNB. I fall asleep until Netflix asks me if I want to continue watching. Who else does that?

Do you lose quality when you binge-watch? Or does the director intend on you binge-watching? That's why Netflix releases 13 episodes at once. Anyway, I'm impressed by season 5 so far.

Orange Is the New Black sucked me in and absorbed my attention like a sponge for three straight episodes. It felt like being in a night class that's scheduled for four hours. By the third hour, you need a break. And that's when I dozed off around 4:30 in the morning.

How ironic is it to watch, essentially women behind bars, on the 4th of July. You're watching people without freedom, on America's day of celebrating freedom. It's all too real. Then, I remember they're just actors. Piper Chapman's real name is Taylor Schilling. And Laura Prepon is that girl from That's 70 Show.

The first episode of season 5 rehashed the OITNB's characters lives before prison. If this is your first episode seeing ever, you won't be totally lost. I recommend binge-watching season 3. Then 1, 2, and 4. It's true what they say, the third time's the charm. Try it and let me know how it turned out for you.

As I was binge-watching the episodes, I thought about how a hacker threatened to release OITNB to the masses if Netflix didn't pay a ransom. Then I thought about how a similar situation happened to Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean. Finally, I came to the conclusion that it's ironic they're hacking intellectual property centered around state property and private property. Just when I began thinking it's a bad world, I remember it's funny too.

Why John Cena Should Star in More Movies


John Cena
Photo By: Wikimedia Commons

John Cena is arguably the biggest name in World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) right now. He picked up where the Rock left off and added a few ingredients. If you smelt what the Rock was cooking, then you know John Cena's secret recipe is classified.

He has built a durable brand which is evolving over time. Without question, the wrestler is an incredible actor. Cena plays a convincing part in the Marine movie. In fact, his portrayal convinced me to buy the DVD. I believe his movie career will take off exponentially this year because Hollywood is finally recognizing his star potential.

Have you seen Daddy's Home? I haven't seen it yet, but I look forward to watching it soon. That way when Daddy's Home 2 comes out, the first one will be fresh in my mind. John Cena has a major role in the movies.

His most recent movie is The Wall produced by Amazon Studios released in May. The film rises to the occasion and tells a vivid war story. Cena portrays a realistic staff sergeant.

The action star embraces discipline and embodies strength. Despite constant pressure, he maintains a consistent work ethic night after night. Moreover, his unbreakable mindset allows him to work out hard on a daily basis. We all know how difficult sticking to a rigid routine can be; and, John Cena sticks to his guns.

It helps that his wife Nikki Bella is also a professional wrestler. She helps him in his efforts to maintain focus and superstar status. What are the odds that both husband and wife do the same thing for a living?

John is just scratching the surface in showbiz. I expect to see him in more blockbusters. It's only a matter of time before producers realize they're getting a steal of a deal signing Cena to a contract.

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.

Bebe Rexha releases her new album All Your Fault on February 17, 2017. You bet fans are waiting patiently for her upcoming debut. She's already hit the ground running. Soon, she'll be flying high.

Have you heard No Broken Hearts featuring Nicki Minaj? Better yet, have you watched the music video? Bebe Rexha clearly wants to receive viewer's discretion and earn your hard to grab attention.

The young Albanian singer is hot right now for one major reason. She has what it takes. Bebe is being compared to Kylie Jenner by Billboard. Plus, like Kylie kissing her is on everybody's to-do list.

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.
