Analysis: Romantic comedy ‘Wedding Season’ debuts on Netflix


I feel like summer is right around the corner and I haven’t even done half the things I wanted to do.

Take a seat on the couch for this week’s first offering, but know that some of its party scenes might make you want to jump up and do a few moves.

“Wedding Season”

Many of us know the pressure on single people to get married.

So the plot of this new film, in which two young professionals pretend to be a couple during the summer wedding season to get rid of their parents, resonates.

Of course, we know the result. Love a romantic comedy!

It’s streaming on Netflix.

It’s the wake-up call you might not even know you needed.

Our favorite aerial teens have traveled from the 1990s to 2022, and we once again get to enjoy their shenanigans.

There are some updates, sure, but the guys are still as dumb as ever. Get ready for nostalgia and fun.

The new series, which follows the Paramount+ movie “Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe,” is streaming on the same platform.

‘Sweet Life: Los Angeles’ Season 2

Issa Rae always gives us a slice of African American life.

This reality series follows a group of ambitious young black friends who pursue their dreams in Los Angeles.

Naturally, it’s not all rosy – it’s TV, after all – but this coming-of-age show offers plenty of opportunities to witness growth.

The second season of “Sweet Life: Los Angeles” airs on HBO Max, which is owned by parent company CNN.

Calvin Harris might have a music festival just with the artists featured on his latest project.

“Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2” features collaborations with artists like Justin Timberlake, Dua Lipa, Normani, Offset, Halsey, Pharrell, and Snoop Dogg, to name a few.

“I felt like the first one, the idea was there, but I didn’t quite see it through,” the DJ/producer told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, as reported by Complex. “With this one I wanted to have more drums, live guitars…I wanted the original essence. I wanted the layers and the grit and the dirt. And I don’t want things to be blended too perfectly .”

The album was released on Friday.

Slim Shady has hits.

Eminem releases “Curtain Call 2”, the second volume of his greatest hits.

The album is “a collection of hits comprised of the creative output of the inimitable Detroit MC since the 2005 release of Curtain Call: The Hits,” according to the rapper’s site.

“Curtain Call 2” will feature music from all Eminem projects starting with 2009’s “Relapse,” including songs from various side projects, guest appearances, and movie soundtracks.

His performance at this year’s Super Bowl halftime got me so ready for this outing, now available.

Something to talk about

The news that Zahara Jolie-Pitt will be attending Spelman College in Atlanta is a boon for HBCUs.

As the daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, the teenager had a choice of schools. And by choosing one of the most well-known historically black colleges and universities to enroll in, she draws a lot of attention to the liberal arts college.

Her mother proudly announced Jolie-Pitt’s choice on social media, and the excitement for her was palpable.

I understand, because I count several Spelman graduates as good friends. A supportive brotherhood awaits Jolie-Pitt.

Good luck to her and all freshmen across the country this semester.

Inclusion is not just about race.

That’s the lesson that resonated when Beyoncé agreed to drop an ability slur from her latest hit album, “Renaissance.”

After complaints that the song “Heated” contained a derogatory term for people with spastic cerebral palsy, the singer’s reps confirmed that “the word, not intentionally used in a harmful way, will be replaced.”

It’s a lesson Lizzo also learned in a similar situation in June. She too was quick to fix the problem.

Addressing these concerns goes beyond good public relations. It is an example for all of us of the need for sensitivity.
