Kendrick Lamar talks winning Pulitzer Prize in Vanity Fair Cover Interview

Rapper and Pulitzer Prize winner Kendrick Lamar is on the cover of the August issue of Vanity Fair. In the tell-all interview, Lamar shares his thoughts on everything from his writing process, and his childhood growing up in Chicago. The rapper, who grew up listening to The Temptations (he was named for lead singer Eddie Kendricks), Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, and gangsta rap, Lamar said about his writing process. “‘Execution’ is my favorite word. I spend 80 percent of my time thinking about how I’m going to execute, and that might be a whole year of constantly jotting down ideas, figuring out how I’m going to convey these words to a person to connect to it. What is this word that means this, how did it get here and why did it go there and how can I bring it back there? Then, the lyrics are easy.”

Lamar is the first rapper to win the award since the awards expansion to music in 1943, the first for a non-classical or non-jazz musician. 

Of the award, Lamar told Vanity Fair, “It was one of those things I heard about in school, but I never thought I’d be a part of it. [When I heard I got it], I thought, to be recognized in an academic world . . . whoa, this thing really can take me above and beyond. It’s one of those things that should have happened with hip-hop a long time ago. It took a long time for people to embrace us–people outside of our community, our culture–to see this not just as vocal lyrics, but to see that this is really pain, this is really hurt, this is really true stories of our lives on wax. And now, for it to get the recognition that it deserves as a true art form, that’s not only great for myself, but it makes me feel good about hip-hop in general. Writers like Tupac, Jay Z, Rakim, Eminem, Q-Tip, Big Daddy Kane, Snoop . . . It lets me know that people are actually listening further than I expected.

The minute I hear good news, it just motivates me to do more. I don’t want to get complacent. If you asked seven out of ten people, ‘What would you do if you got the Pulitzer Prize?,’ they’d say, ‘I’d put my feet up.’ But that would make me feel I’d reached my pinnacle at 30 years old, and that wouldn’t make me feel good."

'Flip or Flop's' Christina El Moussa goes solo for brand new HGTV show 'Christina on the Coast'

June 27, 2018
The awkwardness appears to be over for Christina El Moussa. The design expert, best known from HGTV’s hit series "Flip or Flop," has signed a deal for a new original series with the network. The eight-episode series titled "Christina on the Coast" will showcase Christina as she expands her design business in Southern California. In the series, Christina will transform clients’ outdated properties into high-end showplaces. It also will put the spotlight on her personal journey after her split with husband Tarek. As Christina searches for the perfect new home to start afresh while balancing parenthood, career and a new relationship, cameras will follow her. Christina on the Coast is set to premiere in 1Q 2019. 

Design is my favorite part of the house-flipping process and I can’t wait to be able to now work directly with clients and create a space they’ve always dreamed of having,” said Christina.

“Christina’s design style is very popular, so it’s a natural progression for us to expand her visibility with a new series,” said Allison Page, president, HGTV and Food Network. “Her fans also are deeply vested in her personal life and eager to see ‘what happens next’—so we’re bringing them the opportunity to share in these real-life moments in a way that no one else can.”

Tarek El Moussa is also in discussions to develop a potential new series with HGTV.

“The past few years have brought a lot of change into my life and I am so excited to see what the next stage has in store for me both professionally and personally, there is so much to look forward to and this is only the beginning,” said Christina.

Gloria Estefan to guest star on Netflix's 'One Day At A Time'

This is it!!! Superstar performer Gloria Estefan is set to star on "One Day At A Time." Netflix announced Monday that the Grammy Award-winning performer will guest-star in an episode of One Day at a Time's much-anticipated third season. Estefan -- who is also the voice behind the series' theme song, a Cuban-tinged cover of the original comedy's opener -- will play Mirtha, Lydia's (Rita Moreno) baby sister and arch-nemesis.

Estefan took to Instagram to announce the news.


Netflix's "One day At A Time" is a reimagining of Norman Lear's classic sitcom, "One Day at a Time." The show follows three generations of a Cuban-American family navigating the ups and downs of life. A newly-single mom and military veteran journeys through the triumphs and tribulations that come with raising two strong-willed, mega-millennial children, all the while enlisting the "help" of her old-school mother and her building manager-turned-invaluable confidant. Through a contemporary lens, One Day at a Time offers a glimpse at what life looks like, in good times and bad -- and how those around you somehow make it all worthwhile.

"One Day at a Time" stars Justina Machado, Rita Moreno, Stephen Tobolowsky, Todd Grinnell, Isabella Gomez and Marcel Ruiz. Norman Lear executive produces, with Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce executive producing and co-showrunning. Brent Miller also executive-produces.

Musician Vinnie Paul has died. Paul, a drummer was the co-founder of bands Pantera and Damageplan and currently a member of the band Hell Yeah. He was 54.

The news was announced on the Pantera Official Facebook page on June 22nd. The statement read:
Vincent Paul Abbott aka Vinnie Paul has passed away.
Paul is best known for his work as the drummer in the bands
Pantera and Hellyeah.
No further details are available at this time.
The family requests you please respect their privacy during this time.

Paul formed Pantera in 1981 along with his brother "Dimebag" Darrell (Darrell Abbott). The group hit the mainstream along with their second lead singer Phil Anselmo and bassist Rex Brown. Their album "Far Beyond Driven" debuted at number 1 on the Billboard chart in 1994.

The group, Pantera, earned four Grammy nominations and charted nine albums on the Billboard charts.

After Pantera ended, the Abbott brothers formed Damageplan in 2003. The band was performing on December 8, 2004, when "Dimebag" Darrell was shot and killed onstage during a concert in Columbus, Ohio. He was 38.

Paul joined forces in 2006 as the drummer for Hellyeah, along with Mudvayne vocalist Chad Gray and Nothingface guitarist Tom Maxwell.

Born in Texas, The Abbotts brothers grew up in a musical family; their father is country songwriter /producer Jerry Abbott. Jerry mentored Darrell and Vinnie in the business and worked on production on their early Pantera albums.

Paul had been living in Las Vegas, Nevada for the past 10 years performing with his group Hell Yeah. Their fifth album "Undeniable" was released in 2016. They were recording their sixth album at the time of Paul's death.
