Last night was a special one for 29-year-old crooner Aaron Carter. It was the night he finally opened up to the world about a personal issue that has been weighing on his chest for nearly half his life, a personal burden concerning his sexuality and his identity. After close to 20 years in the industry, four albums, three EPs, dozens of singles, and close to a million followers, Aaron Carter comes out publicly as bisexual.
The American adaptation of Death Note has long been the object of much public ire. Since its announcement in 2009, and Nat Wolff’s controversial casting as Light in 2015, the project has been plagued with numerous production problems — constantly changing directors, the persistent whitewashing of otherwise Asian roles, the massive delays (in production and casting), and every astronomical revision made to the characters and the plot. With only a few weeks left until release, the film seems doomed for critical and box office failure.
In a deleted scene at the very end of Back to the Future we find Marty’s father, George, in 1985, at his desk looking through a digital scrapbook created by Dr. Emmett Brown. He plugs it in and stops at a page showing a 1955 newspaper clipping with the headline, “Police Quell Near Riot At School Dance.” It shows a photograph of Marty on stage, rocking out to Chuck Berry’s "Johnny B. Goode" and, originally, Bill Haley’s "Rock Around The Clock."
Thanks to his life-altering role as Peter Parker in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, 21-year-old Tom Holland has become something of a household name among comic book nerds, little kids, Marvel and MCU fanatics, and Spider-Man fans worldwide. Now, due in no small part to the general success of his recent solo debut in Spider-Man: Homecoming, it seems he has also risen to become one of Hollywood’s most bankable young twenty-something actors. So bankable in fact, that Sony just recently cast him to play a young Nathan Drake in the upcoming film adaptation of Naughty Dog’s hugely popular Uncharted video game series.

Oh, sugar sugar! Riverdale has finally done it! After six episodes of watching the #Archie characters trying to fit into their 2010s modern-day clothes, #CW finally worked up the passion and inner nostalgia to dress and spruce them up in their classic Archie comics duds (obviously as fan service, but hey, not like anyone’s complaining).
