Katy Perry is full of surprises this week. Not only did she announce she will be a judge on the reboot of American Idol, but she also teamed up with Vanity Fair's Derek Blasberg to surprise some patrons of the arts for Derek Does Stuff With a Friend. The 13-time Grammy nominee and "Bon Appétit" singer was looking mmm-mmm-good as she popped her head out of picnic table to surprise guests at the Whitney Museum in New York City.   "This is not one of the most unusual situations I've met someone in," Katy said as staff placed fruit around her neck on a serving platter.

‘Whitney: Can I Be Me’ Review: Bisexual Subtext is the Documentary’s Most Powerful Reveal — Tribeca Review

28 April 2017 9:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

They say Whitney Houston had the voice of an angel. A cousin of Dionne Warwick, she grew up singing in her church choir. She was beautiful, with a smile that could light up a room. Which is why, when she died in 2012, this monumental diva’s fall struck a chord with the entire world. Like so many legends before her, she died of a drug overdose that was a long time coming. Houston had been using for years, but what drove her over the edge remained a mystery to most of the world — until now.

Through interviews with friends and employees (most of her friends were employees), “Whitney: Can I Be Me” filmmakers Nick Broomfield and Rudi Dolezal take a strong stand, connecting the dots between a number of pivotal moments in Houston’s life that led to her heartbreaking decline.

Whitney Cummings’ Directorial Debut ‘The Female Brain’ Nabbed by Hyde Park International (Exclusive)

1 February 2017 5:08 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Whitney Cummings: 'The scariest place to perform standup is America'

12 January 2017 9:41 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The outspoken comic talks about directing a ‘science comedy’ on the female brain, overcoming her battle with co-dependency and the cult of celebrity grief

At only 34, Whitney Cummings has packed an enormous amount of success – and a few notable failures – into her career. Named one of Variety’s “Comics to Watch” a decade ago, she went on to become a regular at Chelsea Lately and at the Comedy Central roasts. In 2011, she exploded – her sitcom Whitney premiered on NBC to withering reviews, only lasting two seasons; a short-lived talkshow would follow. At the same time, she was creating and executive-producing CBS’s 2 Broke Girls, a bona fide hit now in its sixth season.
