Between ‘Zola’ and ‘Heaux Tales’, women own their sexuality at the moment


Seriously. High temperatures, more skin and lots of cocktails with umbrellas.

Count on me. And after surviving a pandemic, you better rent ANY body you live in and designate it ready for summer.

That’s why I’m excited about the summer energy of hot girls right now because women own their agency.

Which brings me to what to watch this week:

Three things to watch out for


What happens when you get two strippers, a needy boyfriend, and a dangerous pimp together for a road trip?

All kinds of shenanigans – and we’re SO here for that.

Based on a 2015 viral Twitter feed, the film, directed by Janicza Bravo and starring Taylour Paige, Riley Keough and Nicholas Braun, is like a buddy road trip on ecstasy – lots of comedy and a guide to the game. the hoe as a bonus.

If Paige looks perfect as Zola, thanks to Bravo, who told me she found her and surreptitiously took pictures of the young actress in a cafe after spotting Paige in a commercial for her drama VH1. / BET, “Hit the Floor”.

Paige wasn’t happy with the pictures.

“She squinted at me like I’m a garbage collector and the thing is I’m okay, because I was really taking a picture of you and not asking you to do it,” Bravo told Paige. during our interview, to which Paige replied, “I was going through this, probably.”

“Zola” is now in theaters.

“The summer of the soul”

"Summer of soul"  starts streaming on Hulu Friday.

Questlove literally can do it all.

The Roots drummer, superstar DJ and assistant instructor at New York University made his first film, a documentary called “Summer of Soul”.

The film is billed as “partly a musical film, partly a historical record created around an epic event that celebrated black history, culture and fashion”.

“Over six weeks in the summer of 1969, just 160 miles south of Woodstock, the Harlem Cultural Festival was filmed in Mount Morris Park (now Marcus Garvey Park),” according to a press release from the film. “The pictures have never been seen and largely forgotten – until now.”

The doc begins streaming on Hulu on Friday.

“September mornings”

Soul singer and songwriter Liniker, a pioneer of the trans community in her native Brazil, shines in “September Mornings”.

I’m a sucker for musical artists who can also play. Liniker’s performance as Cassandra, a woman whose life takes a turn when a son she didn’t know she had shows up at her doorstep, is stellar. She also sings in the series, so bonus!

“September Mornings”, also known as “Manhãs de Setembro”, is currently streaming on Amazon Prime.

Two things to listen to

Lana Del Rey performs at the Benicàssim International Music Festival in Benicàssim, Spain on July 20, 2019.
At Lana Del Rey eighth studio album, “The blue ramps,” is a sequel to “Chemtrails Over the Country Club”, released in March.

It looks like the pandemic has artists creating enough tracks that they can release more than one album a year.

Color me not crazy about it.

Back in April, Del Rey tweeted, “I write my own story. And no one else can tell it.”

Let the narration begin on Sunday.

The "Rebel Girls Go for the Gold"  podcast stream on Audible.

The Summer Olympics begin on July 23. In honor of the games, Audible offers an exclusive six-episode podcast series.

“Rebel girls go for gold” is performed by Olympic bronze medalist Ibtihaj Muhammad and “takes listeners on a journey through the history of the Olympic Games – from the first female marathoner in the late 1800s to a young Colombian BMX rider who plans to compete in the next Tokyo games ”.
With all the talk about (the lack of) gender parity in sport, I’m digging in and shining the spotlight on these amazing athletes.

The podcast is currently streaming.

One thing to say

Michael Gandolfini (right) plays the young Tony Soprano in

No more prequels, please.

I know Hollywood loves a good sequel – and several others – but I crave origin stories.

So, thank you, David Chase for the upcoming movie “The Many Saints of Newark”, where we learn the story of a young Tony Soprano from “The Sopranos”.

I was obsessed with the HBO series and am looking forward to this movie. (Mandatory disclosure of business synergies: HBO and CNN are both part of WarnerMedia.)

Especially since Michael Gandolfini takes on the role of Soprano, originally played by his father, the late James Gandolfini.

Perfect casting. Plus, behind every great character is a story that helped them get there. Bada bing, bada boom.

Something to sip

A portrait of Britney Spears hangs over supporters and the media outside a hearing regarding the pop singer's guardianship at the Stanley Mosk courthouse in Los Angeles on June 23.

Support for Britney Spears is growing stronger.

As wonderful as it may be, hopefully the support will continue when the headlines are gone.

This is when Spears will need people most to root it.
