Variety Reviews 'Queen of the South' + 7 (3) Facts About The Series' Star Alice Braga







  • Lots of explosions, action, and violence in the first ep.

  • The series offers a female-empowerment angle on Netflix's "Narcos", mixing violence with amazing fashion and making it work.

  • Alice Braga is gr8 as the lead.

  • Based loosely on "La Reina Del Sur" with Kate Del Castillo (the actress who introduced Sean Penn to El Chapo) which is also loosely based on the life of Mallory Chacón.

  • The premiere hints that the series will explore the Mexico/USA borders issues since Teresa, the main character, originally flies to Spain, but in USA's version she flees to Dallas.

  • "Queen of the South" premieres (or premiered depending on your timezone) today on USA Network.








  • Acting is in her blood since her mother and aunt (Sonia Braga who will be seen on Netflix's "Luke Cage" next) are also actresses.

  • She's fluent on Portuguese, English, and Spanish.

  • Philanthropy is part of her life. She often posts on instagram about her support to #GlobalGoals, which is a movement to end poverty, inequality, and climate change.

karla kabello gave advice for how girls with guy friends should deal with haters

camila-cabello-main

- karla gets real af about how she deals with shamila (camila cabello and shawn mendes) rumors
- "if I could give any advice to girls that get hate when they have close friendships with a guy is that at the end of the day, all that matters is that you surround yourself with people that make you happy and if people around you hate on you for that, then they're not really people you want in your life anyway."
- their international hit 'i know what you did last summer' has sold well over 2 million copies worldwide
- karla enjoyed co-writing with shawn and is definitely interested with working with him again

    Shawn Mendes: "I'M NOT GAY!!"

    Shawn Mendes took to Snapchat to clear the air on rumors that he is gay. In his video, he mentions reading comments on YouTube videos of his interviews and people commenting, saying that he gives them a "gay vibe." He continues, saying that he is not gay and that the focus should be on his music and not his sexuality.



    I don't usually do this or bring up problems but I was on YouTube just watching some of my interviews and I was going down the comments and noticed a lot of people were saying I gave them a "gay vibe". First of all, I'm not gay. Second of all, it shouldn't made a difference if I was or if I wasn't. The focus should be on the music and not my sexuality. Now I know 99% of you guys aren't making assumptions like this but this is for the 1% of you that are. I just want you guys to know before you judge someone on the way they speak or act to think "hey, maybe I shouldn't be judging someone" or "wait it actually doesn't even matter." They can do or be or feel however they want to feel. Now I'm not frustrated because people were saying that I was gay at all, I have no problem with that cause it wouldn't make a difference to me. I'm frustrated because in this day and age people have the audacity to write online that I'm gay as if it were a bad thing. That's all I really have to say about that. I just wish that 1% of people would grow up. I love you guys.

    If Dwayne signs on, he'll join Tom Cruise/Sofia Boutella/Annabelle Wallis (starring in The Mummy), Russell Crowe (The Mummy/Jekyll & Hyde) and Johnny Depp (The Invisible Man, whom we all surely hope will be replaced). Angelina Jolie is also being eyed for Bride of Frankenstein.

    Led Zeppelin wins "Stairway to Heaven" plagiarism suit




    After a week of testimony, a California jury has delivered its verdict that Led Zeppelin's song "Stairway to Heaven" bore no substantial similarities to Taurus song "Spirit."  Taurus songwriter Randy Wolfe passed away in 1997, and showed no interest in pursuing a lawsuit against Zeppelin after similarities between the songs were pointed out.  Wolfe's estate trustee sued Zeppelin for tens of millions of dollars of the song's profits, but the jury needed less than a day of deliberation, and arrived at their verdict less than half an hour after listening to both songs.  There was no mention of any blues songs Zeppelin lifted and credited to themselves, though.

    - Lindsay wants to first let her sister shine before releasing a new album: "With that being said, my sister is signed to EMI. She's recording a record, and out of respect for her and her true career choice — which is all she wants to do is make music, and her voice is like…Etta James meets Adele; I want to respect her in that lane and stay in my lane working with children and creating films and writing and directing."




    - Last month, Hilary shared a little snippet of her in the recording studio, and today (June 23), follows it up with a new interview confirming she’s working on new music, albeit slowly.

    - "Music is such a part of my life and my makeup, though, that I don’t think I’ll ever stop doing it. I just don’t think it’ll ever be on the scale that it used to be. I was in the studio a week ago just messing around, though, and I’m working with a new manager, so it’s definitely still going on. It’s just a little bit on the back burner."

    Whenever I was told that I was coming back for Season 6, before they sent me through the scripts and stuff, they sent me through a ring just to say, “Listen, so that you don’t get a shock whenever you read the scripts, just know that you die this season.” It was sad at first, but once I realized how I was going to die in it, then it was cool.

    About not running zig-zag:

    I think that’s a question for the writers. As for my role, I need to stick to the script.

    Lita Ford Settles Robert Plant and Led Zeppelin Rumor

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    Lita was asked in an interview by Inspirer if Robert Plant really asked her to join Led Zeppelin back when she was in The Runaways.

    "I think this has been misquoted a few times, now. I did not mention in my book “Robert Plant asked me to play bass for Led Zeppelin.” Robert Plant asked me if I could play bass. “For who?” I asked. That was it, it was only small talk. I never once thought he meant for Led Zeppelin. I assumed he meant I was a good musician; it was a musical compliment. Recently, I heard there was trouble with John Paul Jones during those days. But I don’t know how true that is. Only Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and John Paul Jones know that for sure–I didn’t know anything about it. I couldn’t picture a 17-year-old girl replacing one of my favorite bass players in the whole wide world. Even though I knew his bass licks, I still couldn’t imagine leaving The Runaways to join Led Zeppelin that night."

    Lea DeLaria Talks ‘Orange is the New Black’ and Diversity in Television

    OITNB's Lea DeLaria was asked about her thoughts on the Pulse shooting during an interview where she also talked about feminism, OITNB, and women in television:

    "I want to be very clear: this was a gay hate crime. He chose this place so that he could take out as many queers as he possibly could. It was against us, and the worst of it is that he went into a place that has always been a safe place for us. It’s where you go to be who you are, to be with your community, your friends, your chosen family. He stole that from us on Sunday morning. But, the beauty of my people is that they get past things. He’s not the first person to do this to us, but I hope with all my soul that he will be the last. We will get past this. We will have our rights. They can’t stop us.

    I just finally today got in touch with every one of my friends in Orlando and they’re all safe, but it’s taken this many days. And, I can’t even tell you how many times I have been dancing in that club at 2 in the morning. I know there’s a lot of us who feel that way. As a gay performer who has been an openly gay performer for as long as I have, I have performed in Orlando so many times. I have danced in that club so many times. It’s frightening."
