Fans who have been missing Demi's old sound and style have been praising it, while others have called it a Disney Channel reject.
Demi is currently working hard on her sixth album, with Nick Jonas producing at least on the potential tracks.
2. Yes Please by Amy Poehler

Powered by Amy’s charming and hilarious, biting yet wise voice, Yes Please is a book full of words to live by.
8. Is It Just Me? by Miranda Hart
About: Well hello to you dear browser. Now I have your attention it would be rude if I didn't tell you a little about my literary feast. So, here is the thing: is it just me or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination and sometimes unexplained nudity, that accompanied childhood and adolescence?

And as a warm and wise woman who has seen the highs and lows of life, she has words of encouragement for anyone who has ever felt like an outsider. With I’m the One That I Want, Margaret Cho has written a book every bit as hilarious, shocking, and insightful as she is.

now we just gotta wait for them links
- Discussed the subject while talking about her current West End play, which focuses on an infertile peasant woman living in rural Spain.
- She has friends who have have successfully had children and that's great, while she also has friends who left it for a bit later because they were enjoying the wonders of a great, child-free life with successful careers, but now are "getting really quite fraught"
- Says infertility is a lot more common than people think, and often people will tell her, after watching the play, that they'll take a fertility test
- Says being a mom has helped become more empathetic of her character.
Frankly, I'd love to be infertile. The only thing that ruins sex for me is knowing that my contraceptives might screw me over eventually, and I can end up getting pregnant again.
What's your idea of a curse, ONTD? Other than the obvious stuff, like cancer.

Note: This isn't a countdown of the best LSFYL performances, rather it's a list of the best lipsync performers from RuPaul's Drag Race.
This placement was perhaps the most difficult to decide. It was between Morgan's technicality and restraint and Raven's raw sexuality, but ultimately Morgan won her spot with her technical ability and lip work. While I absolutely still love Raven's sensual rendition of 'Don't Cha' by The Pussycat Dolls on All Stars, I had to choose Morgan because Raven lacks the accuracy and technicality that Morgan does. While she murders high energy songs, Morgan has also shown she can give hilarious performances much like the one below where she impersonates Tabatha Coffey from Tabatha Takes over proving she's extremely versatile.
The performance powerhouse from Season 8, Chi Chi DeVayne secured her spot at number four for the powerful, intense lipsync to 'And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going' from Dream Girls which culminates in one of the most iconic moments in the history of Drag Race where the beads on her dress (which she had gotten from her drag mom and even made sure to repair) break and pour down onto the stage, resulting in beautiful imagery to an already magnificent performance. Chi Chi maintained her composure and powered through it, sending Thorgy home with her powerful energy and accurate lip work. This performance even earned her a personal message from Jennifer Holliday who honored Chi Chi by making her an official Dream Girl.
She also murdered 'Call Me' by Blondie and sent Naysha packing
Despite having some of the more questionable makeup looks on Drag Race, Coco has proved that she possesses the talent and know-how to outshine the inconsistencies in her makeup. Perhaps one of the most memorable performances ever in the history of Drag Race, 'Cold Hearted Snake' proved to be the best performance out of any LSYFL during Season 5. The moment she pointed to her lips so the judges could see her lip accuracy was simply iconic and her performance as a whole completely shattered any chance Alyssa might have had at another chance. I feel bad for any of the queens going against Coco in a lipsync during All Stars 2. Girl knows how to turn a stage out.
Her rendition of 'When I Grow Up' is also quite iconic. Monica never stood a chance against Coco.
There is something so captivating about Latrice when she performs a lipsync. From head to toe, she's simply gorgeous and not only does she give amazing energy during her performances, but she also provides tight lipsyncs. Perhaps the best out of any queen that has ever been on the show. While many cite 'Natural Woman' as her penultimate lipsync on the show, I must humbly disagree and say that her rendition of 'I've Got To Use My Imagination' by Gladys Knight was more powerful and even the best lipsync of Season 4. Maybe even out of the entire series. Her energy perfectly encapsulated the song and her lip work was so on point. Poor Dida never stood a chance against Latrice. You can also watch her iconic 'Natural Woman' lipsync below.
I'm sure many of you will disagree with Trinity being number one, but quite frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn. There wasn't one lipsync performance of Trinity's I didn't like and I still maintain that Adore should have gone home for her erratic performance and mediocre look which wasn't even Mortal Kombat inspired in any way shape or form. 'I'm Every Woman' remains one of my favorite performances. Her energy, her movement, her accuracy. It was simply immaculate and her 'Whatta Man' was perhaps the most accurate lipsync in the history of Drag Race. She won out at number because of her tight lipsync. And while Latrice delivered my favorite performance on the show, Trinity is technically more accurate with her lipsync and that is why she is the best lipsyncer out of any queen on the show.

It's terrible how victims still feel the need to give credit or praise to their abusers for "making them famous" or "giving them success that others would love" :((((

-Bear & Samantha Fox have words with one another

Why stick to flop USA shows when there's quality stuff being made all over the world?
Below are 10 international recommendations in no particual order. It ranges from coming-of-age shows to crime and fantasy dramas. Some can be found on Netflix without you even knowing about it!
Set in Oslo, SKAM is often called the Norwegian Skins. (
Fun fact: NRK (the network that airs SKAM) tried to sell the show to other European countries, who declined due to the excessive alcohol use.
You can find the episodes with English subtitles HERE.
Age Of Youth (South Korea)
Things start out rough for Eun Jae when she moves into a shared house in Seoul with 4 other college girls. She doesn't fit in, and none of the girls seem to want to make an effort to make her feel welcome. However, as the story progresses you get to know each character very intensively, and the friendship between the girls becomes stronger with each episode. When one of the girls claims to see a spirit of a murdered person in the house, each girl will have to face her inner secrets.
Though this drama still has two episodes left before it ends, it's already one of the best "slice of life" dramas ever (if not best drama in general). Every girl has flaws, but the characters have a lot of depth which makes every single one of them likeable in their own way. Typical things as relationships, break ups, and fights are depicted, but the show also manages to touch sensitive subjects in South Korea such as prostitution. (Here is some background information on sponsorship/prostitution in the korean entertainment industry). For once in kdrama land, a writer seems to understand that girls can be supportive of each other.
Watch the episodes with English subtitles HERE.
Polseres Vermelles (Spain)
This show has been remade by several countries already (the mess that was Red Band Society on FOX was cancelled after 1 season) but nothing compares to the original. The Catalan show takes place in the children's wing of a hospital in Barcelona. Six kids meet each other and decide to form a group with their red surgery bracelets, each taking up a certain role within the group (just ignore that the only girl in the group gets "the girl" as role, while the boys are "the leader", "the clever one" etc). Though all there for different reasons (cancer, eating disorder, coma, etc) they form a special bond and are soon inseparable and necessary for each other's recovery.
Get your tissues ready because this show is sad. The first season follows them as kids, while the second season was filmed 2 years later, continuing their stories as teenagers. The writer wanted the actors to grow into young adults before filming the third season, but over 3 years later, there has been no news on season 3. All the episodes are subbed and can be watched on YouTube.
Penoza (the Netherlands)
Penoza is a Dutch crime series which follows Carmen, a housewife whose husband gets assassinated which leaves her to deal with the criminal business her family is involved in.
Penoza has been nominated for pretty much all of the awards in the Netherlands. ABC remade the show in 2013, calling it Red Widow, which got cancelled after only one season.
Lovesick (United Kingdom)
Originally titled Scrotal Recall, Lovesick was created in 2014 by Channel 4 and follows Dylan (Johnny Flynn). When Dylan gets diagnosed with chlamydia, he decides to contact all his sexual partners of the past 11 years.
This underrated show was mostly overlooked because of its horrible original name. However, Netflix saw its potential and decided to pick it up. They renamed it Lovesick and the second season is set to be released on Netflix November 17.
Signal (South Korea)
Signal is a 16-episode crime/fantasy drama which aired in 2016. A criminal profiler (Hae Young) finds an old walkie talkie which lets him communicate with a detective from the past. When Hae Young teams up with detectives from the same precinct as the the detective he's been communicating with, things get complicated and their own pasts get involved as well. When Hae Young starts focusing on a cold case, his communication with the past might be the only way to find the serial killer.
Even though the drama is 16 episodes long, every minute of every episode is suspenseful. A badass female lead, only a hint of romance, and a good combination between action and emotional scenes make this the greatest thriller in drama history. Signal is also available on DramaFever!
Gran Hotel (Spain)
Soapier than Downton Abbey, but fun nonetheless. Gran Hotel is set in the early 20th century, and follows Julio. He infiltrates the hotel his sister worked at as a waiter to try and discover the truth behind her mysterious disappearance. Once he starts digging into the employees and the family that owns the hotel, he only discovers more secrets.
Everyone kills, and everyone gets killed. The most important reason for watching is of course the main lead, who isn't unattractive. However, the show is fun and easy to watch. All three seasons are available on Netflix!
Happy Valley (United Kingdom)
Another gem that can be found on Netflix is Happy Valley. This BBC One drama follows Catherine, a police sergeant in West Yorkshire. Things get extremely personal for Catherine when a local girl gets kidnapped and one of the suspects is someone from her past.
SO GOOD! JUST GO AND WATCH IT NOW. I know it gets mentioned on here regulary, but in one of the latest James Norton posts a lot of people still seemed to be doubting whether or not they should watch it. The answer is yes. Both seasons are pretty much perfect, and a third season has been confirmed.
Bron/Broen (Denmark & Sweden)
Probably already familiar to many as The Bridge, but still worth mentioning. The bridge is a Scandinavian crime drama which is a joint creative and financed production between a Swedish and a Danish network. When a body is found on the bridge that connects Sweden and Denmark, two detectives (one from Sweden, one from Denmark. Duh.) will have to work together to find the killer.
Three seasons have aired, and a fourth one has been commissioned.
This Danish comedy follows the life of Rita, a rebellious and outspoken woman who works as a school teacher. Though competent in the classroom, when it comes to her personal life Rita needs a teacher of her own.
Rita is available on Netflix!
i wanted to focus on coming of age shows, but ended up throwing a few other into the mix as well.what are your faves, and what's your country's best show, ontd?

So I didn't see anything about it on ONTD and I thought I might share it, because it's hilarious.
For people who don't know the concept: every year Channel 4 makes a quiz with (mostly british) celebrities that retraces the news of the year, hosted by Jimmy Carr. Usually it comes out at the end of the year or beginning of the new year as "The Big Fat Quiz of [year]". HOWEVER! 2016 has a Big Fat Quiz of Everything in 3 parts and the first part came out last Monday!
The teams are:
Here it is:
-The children of Mitchell Brook Primary School are so cute as usual <3
-Mel is adorable and DRUNK AF lmao
-Jonathan Ross has a weird jacket on idk idk
-Mel misunderstands a high five thing with Kristen, and then everyone gets on the boat
-Kristen Schaal is EVERYTHING and I love her. Also she makes Jimmy Carr lose his shit continuously
-Claudia is the best lol and she gets drunk too
-Actually almost everyone gets drunk because at some point they come out with champagne
-David Mitchell gets red around the eyes when he's tipsy who knew. He also gets to rant when the others pressure him to share some tmi details
Next part is on Monday the 22nd, with everyone's fave Richard Ayode and Noel Fielding, Jonathan Ross (again) and Adam Buxton and finally Rob Beckett and Aisling Bea.
So ONTD which BFQoY or BFQoE is your favourite? I have a hard time choosing but I have a soft spot for the 2014 one, because Mel B was so horrendously unfunny that it threw off EVERYONE and to see them trying to make jokes and keep up a positive atmosphere was the funniest shit eveeeer. (And the end was beautiful, I don't want to spoil it for those who didn't see it lol)
The Tragically Hip are playing their last show tonight in Kingston, ON after heading out on one last tour. It's being aired on CBC, being broadcasted across Canada and the world. To view locations airing it in your city, visit the source below or simply turn on your television.

I didn't grow up listening to the Hip but listening to them makes me realize they were such a staple in growing up in Canada. I may not be able to tell you a song title but everything sounds like...Canada
1. It took 9 hours to film 1 episode
2.NBC was against casting Bea Arthur as Dorothy
-They thought that Bea's ratings with the general audience was to low and they would not warm up to her
5.Estelle Getty (aka Sophia) was only one year younger in real-life than her TV daughter Bea Arthur (aka Dorothy)
7.There were only 3 chairs at the kitchen table even though 4 women lived in their house
-The camera crew didn't want to have one of the women facing away from the camera so they only had 3 chairs to keep everyone in frame
10.Elaine Stritch auditioned for the part of Dorothy, but said she didn't get the role because the show's writer didn't like her
Fave GG episode?
Tonight on Lochte Up Abroad:
A little late-night scoop: Ryan Lochte has enlisted a top Hollywood PR guru to help his Rio fight. https://t.co/0VZHre9WdW— Matthew Belloni (@THRMattBelloni) 19 de agosto de 2016
Creative story-teller, Ryan Lochte, has hired Matthew Hiltzik, a top Hollywood PR guru for some crisis management - the same one who has helped Alec Baldwin and Justin Bieber during their times of need.
The first order of the day?Make the spinner of yarns look like a good wholesome American
The noted pseudologist gave an exclusive interview today to the biggest TV news program in Brazil (from NY) and to Matt Lauer in a serious hairstyle and dress shirt, a far cry from the carefree frat-boy look he sported until yesterday.
To Felipe Santana, the Jornal Nacional reporter, the famed fabulist gave an interview with his PR guru and lawyer by his side. He said he made "immature accusations" and "is confused" by what happened. He says that he doesn't know why he made the story up, but also that "he didn't exactly lie" (?), that Brazil doesn't deserve it and apologized to the gas station owner, the police and the people of Brazil and Rio.
Fantástico, the most popular Sunday-night TV show in Brazil, is dedicating an entire segment to show "why Ryan Lochte was considered a joke in the US, even before this scandal". #nochill
To Matt Lauer, the professional poet said (watch here): "Whether you call it a robbery, or extortion, or us paying just for the damages, like, we don't know".
He insisted on the point about having a gun pointed in his direction and being demanded to give money - but Matt Lauer, speaking slowly, as if to a child, makes him admit that he understood he was making a deal to pay for the damages and to not get in trouble with the police.
Lauer: At some point, someone who spoke English walked over and offered to help translate this altercation. And he made it clear that the security guard was telling the 4 of you: "you need to pay for that stuff, that damage, before you leave here, or I'm gonna call the police". You understood that at that time, didn't you?
[OP note: police had actually already been called, but the swimmers didn't want to stick around for them to arrive]
"I take full responsibility. I over-exaggerated that story and if I had never done that we wouldn't be in this mess. None of this would have happened. [...] It was my immature behavior"
ESPN Brazil had access to Feigen's two depositions. In the first one, the promising fiction author went as far as making up a sketch of the fake bandit.
The imaginary robber had "athletic build, dark hair, lined haircut, light brown skin, approx. 30 to 40 years old, recently shaved".
He was also wearing a "light grey shirt under a dark jacket and black pants".

Recently Cecil Baldwin, best known as the voice of the 'Welcome to Night Vale' podcast, sat down with Seriously.TV where he spoke about his HIV status.
"I think ultimately the reason I wanted to talk to you about being HIV-positive today is that I find that we're at this age in 2016 where so many people in America and worldwide have HIV and are living with it and are surviving it and are making their lives work," Baldwin explained in the interview. "I think that it's important for people who are HIV-positive in the position to create a sounding board to let those other people know that we're out there and we're a part of every day life."
Baldwin went on to explain that when he first received his diagnosis he didn't know a lot about treatment and he essentially went into mourning and thought that his life was over. A friend, however, convinced him to stay in New York citing that there was a large community of HIV-positive people that would be able to help him.
Baldwin spoke of how there is still a stigma about people with HIV which is why he feels that visibility is important.
When asked about the notion that having HIV is dirty Baldwin responded with, "I'm HIV-positive and bitch, I shower every day."
