How the Chilling Epilogue of The Handmaid's Tale Foreshadows Season 2

29 July 2017 12:10 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Warning: Spoilers for the end of the Handmaid's Tale book below! Many intriguing tidbits about The Handmaid's Tale's second season have been confirmed, but how the book ends opens the floodgates as to what more we can expect from future episodes. Having just read (and then reread) the chilling epilogue from Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel, I'm practically bursting with anticipation as to how the show's writers will spin the drama. While the biggest plot points from the book have already played out in season one, what happens in the epilogue has yet to appear in the show. If the show stays true to its source material, here's what plot developments might occur in season two (and possibly beyond). Gilead Expands Its Influence According to the epilogue, Gilead redraws the map of the world, especially in the North American hemisphere. We know Gilead is planning on trading handmaids in Mexico, »

28 July 2017 6:32 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Matt Bomer doesn't recall any awkwardness while shooting Magic Mike -- except the skimpy outfits!

On Thursday's episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, the 39-year-old actor was asked if it was ever uncomfortable working with Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer on the male stripper movie, as the two reportedly did not get along. Pettyfer himself even admitted in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that "Channing does not like me."

"Truth be told, no," Bomer said of any tension while filming. "On set of the first film, everybody was really professional. Channing is one of the most fun people I've ever worked with, he set a great tone."

Bomer continued to praise Tatum and Pettyfer's professionalism on Magic Mike, adding, "They both came to work on time. They did great work. There was never any tension that I witnessed »

28 July 2017 6:25 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Seven months later and Meek Mill is still getting over his break up with Nicki Minaj.

“I always wanted Nicki my whole life … I bagged that,” Mill told Philadelphia radio station Power 99 on Thursday. “Of course breaking up with anybody you love is a loss, period.”

They went public with their relationship in March 2015 when Minaj, 34, posted a caption-less photo to Instagram of their hands holding.  In an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last year, Minaj was hesitant to label her relationship with Mill, saying, “I don’t know, we’re still figuring each other out.”

Drake Shares His Hilariously Small 'Royalty' Check from 'Degrassi' Days -- See the Pic!

18 July 2017 5:59 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It's a good thing Drake's music career took off, because his teen drama days aren't paying much anymore.

The "One Dance" singer took to Instagram on Monday to share a hilariously royalty check from Degrassi: The Next Generation, a Canadian TV show the then-actor appeared on from 2001 to 2009.

"Degrassi money still coming in don't sleeeeeeeep," Drake, 30, captioned the pic of the $8.25 paycheck, which is apparently what 145 episodes of playing Jimmy brings in these days.

To be fair, with the most streamed song off all time, we can hardly imagine the modest royalties hurt Champagne Papi too much.

Still, Drake did seem to be sulking a bit in some restaurant pictures he also shared on Monday.

Cha-Ching? Drake Is Still Raking in Degrassi Money 10 Years Later

18 July 2017 1:07 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Started from the bottom, now he's here.  It's been a decade since Drake left Degrassi: The Next Generation to pursue music, but the superstar rapper just proved he'll never forget his humble beginnings—especially since he's still earning those royalties!  To be fair, the Canadian teen drama only cut him a check for $8.25, which was still enough to excite Drizzy enough to share it to Instagram on Tuesday. "Degrassi money still coming in don't sleeeeeeeep..." the 30-year-old Toronto native joked.  It's safe to say the "Hotline Bling" rapper isn't relying on moola from his years on television as wheelchair-chair bound Jimmy »

Kanye West: 40 Years of Fire -- The Ultimate Birthday Playlist!

8 June 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Wake up, Mr. West. It's your birthday!

On "No More Parties in L.A." off The Life of Pablo, Kanye West describes himself as "a 38-year-old 8-year-old," which is maybe a perfect summation of the qualities that have made the 40-year-old rapper such an enigma: a larger-than-life icon who has cultivated a persona that draws as much infamy as it does reverence, with a head-spinning number of acclaimed tracks to show for it.

Somehow, as Kanye has gotten older, his almost youthful sense for defiance and creativity have created work that has only gotten more experimental, more groundbreaking, and with each new album, inspired a new crop of artists of hip hop and of music in general.
