Analysis: Selena Gomez shines in the return of ‘Only Murders in the Building’

Life on Earth seems a bit out of control these days.

That means a lot of things, including enjoying as much streaming content as the sunlight allows me, like when it’s too hot and muggy to be outside.

Season 2 of ‘Only Murders in the Building’

I never would have bet that Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez would make a must-see TV series, and yet they have.

“Only Murders in the Building” is back for its second season, and Gomez is really shining this time.

You already knew I was on the show about a trio of true crime devotees. This time, the three neighbors are implicated in a murder. Come for the mystery and stay for the laughs.

Definitely start with the first season and all of its New York City real estate porn.

The opening episodes of the second season of “Only Murders in the Building” are streaming on Hulu.

‘Who is Ghislaine Maxwell?’

A new Starz documentary traces the journey of fallen British socialist Ghislaine Maxwell, the woman convicted of grooming several of the late financier Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual abuse victims.

Maxwell continues to fight for his freedom and maintain his innocence.

The three-part documentary airs on Starz.

‘Stranger Things’ Season 4, Volume 2

Sadie Sink as Max Mayfield is shown in a scene from

There’s not much more to say about the final season of “Stranger Things,” except that the remaining episodes are now streaming on Netflix.

It’s dark, it’s intense, and even if it’s not your genre, it’s hard to deny the strength of the show.

The last two episodes of the fourth season were released on Friday.

two things to listen

Tom Cruise plays Captain Pete "Maverick"  mitchell in

The movie is already a huge success, so why not spread the love to the soundtrack?

“Top Gun: Maverick” is the perfect sequel, in my opinion. The soundtrack album is a solid mix of songs from the original film, such as “Danger Zone” by Kenny Loggins, and new compositions such as “Hold My Hand” by Lady Gaga.

Fun fact: Loggins said he made an updated version of his hit that never made it into the “Top Gun” sequel.

“ME made re-record ‘Danger Zone’ to make a 5.0 version that engages the audience,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “But Tom Cruise really wanted to evoke the original version, the original feeling. So, ultimately, it turned out to be the old song coming back.”

The soundtrack is now available.

Starring in the title role, Austin Butler sings some of the songs on "Elvis".

Let’s continue with the music from the movies, okay?

As I said last week, I loved, loved, loved “Elvis” by Baz Luhrmann, and the same goes for the soundtrack.

Not only are there hits by Elvis Presley, but there are also songs by contemporary artists, like Doja Cat, Jazmine Sullivan, and Stevie Nicks with Chris Isaak. The film’s star, Austin Butler, sang some of Presley’s original tunes and nailed them.

The album is currently available.

One thing to talk about

Mishael Morgan accepts the award for Outstanding Performance by a Leading Actress in a Drama Series during the 49th Daytime Emmy Awards at the Pasadena Convention Center in California on June 24.

I feel bad about the fact that in 2022 we are still celebrating firsts.

However, we will celebrate, because it deserves it.

“The Young and the Restless” star Mishael Morgan became the first black actress to win an Outstanding Lead Performance in a Daytime Drama at the recent Daytime Emmys.

Morgan, who plays Amanda Sinclair on the soap opera, noted in her acceptance speech that she was “born on a little island” in the Caribbean.

“We are breaking glass ceilings left, right and center, and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment,” she said. “And it’s thanks to everyone out there today that they’re showing the world that we can, and will, do this thing called equality and unity together.”

Let’s absolutely do it… together.

Something to drink

Olivia Rodrigo performs during the Glastonbury Festival at Worthy Farm in the town of Pilton in England on June 25.

Stars are using their voices to express their feelings about the overturning of Roe v. Wade by the US Supreme Court.

Many artists, including Olivia Rodrigo, Megan Thee Stallion, Phoebe Bridgers, and Kendrick Lamar, speak out in favor of abortion rights.
It indicates those who say “shut up and sing/act/play”, as is often the case when celebrities exercise their rights as citizens to offer their opinions.
But in this case, Hollywood represents the vast majority of Americans, who oppose Roe v. Wade collapses.
