Yet, because the saying goes, what’s outdated is new once more — which is what leads this week’s publication.

‘Law & Order’


“Law & Order” initially ended with Season 20 again in 2010, and, now, a dozen years later, it’s returned.

Season 21 premiered Thursday on NBC and in addition airs on Peacock and Hulu.

Anthony Anderson will reprise his function as Detective Kevin Bernard, as will Sam Waterston as District Attorney Jack McCoy.

Cheers for sequence creator Dick Wolf bringing it again.

Full disclosure: I’ve advocated on Twitter for the return of my favourite present within the franchise, “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” and one in every of that present’s stars, Vincent D’Onofrio, tweeted me that he’s in if it occurs.

‘Vikings: Valhalla’

Fans of the History channel’s “Vikings” are in for a deal with.

Set 100 years after the occasions depicted in that sequence, “Vikings: Valhalla” dramatizes the battle between the Vikings and the English.

It appears to be like bloody good.

The new present began Friday on Netflix.

The “Black-ish” star is internet hosting the NAACP Image Awards ceremony this weekend. Leading as much as the occasion, the winners of some non-televised classes have already been introduced.

Shout, shout, let all of it out: Tears for Fears has a brand new album.

“The Tipping Point” has been in improvement for seven years and follows the band’s 2004 launch, “Everybody Loves a Happy Ending.”

Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith make up the group and told GQ magazine their earlier administration needed to modernize their sound.

“What they’re saying is ‘We don’t really trust you guys, you’ve made some good records, but c’mon, you’re not very contemporary. So we’re gonna put you with people who know how to make a modern hit,’” Orzabal stated. “So we did that, and it was interesting, but it’s not how we work at our peak.”

A brand new supervisor, new label and new songs resulted in “The Tipping Point,” which debuted Friday.

Kanye West performs Sunday Service during the 2019 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California, on April 21, 2019.

This one isn’t as simply accessible, however I embody it for the Kanye West followers.

For these nonetheless into his music, West has dropped his newest album, “Donda 2.”

And by “dropped” I imply if you wish to take heed to it, it’s important to pay him $200.

Here’s the deal: West announced on his verified Instagram account that his newest would solely be out there on his handheld platform, the Stem Player. Which prices $200 to buy.

“Today artists get just 12% of the money the industry makes,” the caption of West’s announcement said. “It’s time to free music from this oppressive system. It’s time to take control and build our own.”

So, if you wish to assist West and his music mission or simply be capable to say you forked over a number of hundred {dollars} to take heed to the brand new album, have at it.


It’s really easy to guage different individuals’s relationships, isn’t it?

I’ve been having discussions with totally different associates in regards to the hit Netflix documentary “The Tinder Swindler,” and the overwhelming consensus has been the ladies have been silly to be taken in by a convicted con man who claimed to be an inheritor to a diamond trade fortune.

But talking as somebody who as soon as bought a broke ex-boyfriend a automobile, I get it.

Forgetting the truth that Simon Leviev, the topic of the doc, was squiring ladies round on a non-public jet and vacationing in among the most luxurious spots on this planet, the need to consider in those that are closest to us is so sturdy that many people have fallen for a lie or two (or three).

I really feel unhealthy for the ladies who accuse Leviev of bilking them out of a whole lot of hundreds of {dollars} (he denies it and says he was simply on Tinder to fulfill ladies), as a result of it’s a excessive value to pay for love.

Morgan Wallen performs at Music City Center for The 54th Annual CMA Awards, broadcast in Nashville, Tennessee, on November 11, 2020.

There is not any fast repair to racial disparity.

Welcome to my understatement of a lifetime. I wrote about nation music’s race concern a 12 months in the past within the wake of Morgan Wallen’s controversy after he was caught on digital camera utilizing a racial slur.

I revisited the place the style is now, a 12 months later, and suffice it to say, not a lot has modified.

Wallen’s profession, which initially regarded in peril of being “canceled,” has truly taken off. Mickey Guyton, nation music’s most seen Black star, has each sung on the Super Bowl and made historical past as the primary Black lady to host the Academy of Country Music Awards.

But the shortage of variety within the style remains to be not being addressed on a big scale, trade consultants inform me. And for all of the reward Guyton gained for her Super Bowl efficiency, she additionally has been bombarded with racist social media feedback.

Music has the flexibility to carry individuals collectively. It’s a standard floor that may transfer individuals, even in these shifting instances.

Wallen has spoken out about his mistake and eager to be a greater particular person, saying throughout an interview printed this week that he wants to be someone his young son “can be proud of.”

Would that nation music is perhaps as reflective about its artists and followers of coloration and the way they could possibly be higher supported within the style.
