Hump Day Update: 2/22/17

By Rachel A.G. Gilman, Staff Writer

Welcome to Hump Day Update, the place to find out everything you need to know about what’s been going on in the entertainment world for the week. I’m Rachel A.G. Gilman. But enough about me, let’s get to the news.

One of late night’s biggest Trump critics, Seth Meyers, revealed this week at the Writers Guild Awards that he would be willing to have the President as a guest on his show (after famously banning him last summer) if Mr. Trump resigned. Well, looks like “Late Night’s” bookers are just going to have to try for Mike Pence instead.

On all-new episodes of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” the family is opening up about Kim’s Paris robbery that kept her off of social media for a while so she could calm down about the trauma. Kim’s back to her booty posting now, and just remember, every time you like one of those posts, she makes another dollar to replace the jewels she foolishly posted pics of online.

Now that she’s done with Fifth Harmony, Camila Cabello is making her own music, and she’s enlisting the help of J Balvin and Pitbull. And yes, the most shocking thing about this story is that Pitbull the musician hasn’t been banned from making music in the same way pit bull dogs have been banned in Montreal.

ABC is going to be premiering a new romantic comedy, because all of the ones they’ve tried in the past have worked out badly but hey, never say die! “Imaginary Mary,” which will begin in March, is about a woman whose stressful new relationship leads to the reappearance of her imaginary friend. Hey, at least it makes all of us with voices in our heads feel a little better about the situation.

Big Sean, Migos, and Ellen DeGeneres have more in common than you think: i.e. they’re all in the music video for the song “Read It” featuring a lot of second graders plus cameos by Ice Cube and Lin-Manuel Miranda. In case these second graders were already wondering what to write about in their college admissions essays, I think they now have a pretty good story to tell.

For those of you who miss “The Good Wife,” its sequel series “The Good Fight” premiered this weekend on CBS and is just as punchy and provocative as the original series, plus stars some new kickass ladies and all of the old favorites. The only downfall is that it’s only online, so you’re going to have to explain to your mom how to register for CBS All Access if you go home for spring break.

Lana Del Rey has been making quite the production of the release of her video for the song “Love,” which starts out as just a bunch of cute, vintage couples and ends with everyone being transported to the moon. Just some more unrealistic relationship goals for all of us bitter lonely hearts to pout over.

If you’re still following “How to Get Away With Murder,” then you’ll know Annalise is out of prison but we still don’t know who killed her student Wes, or if Laurel’s pregnant with his baby, or basically anything else. The season finale will be this Thursday, and if you feel like you need a Spark Notes guide to keep up with the show, know you’re not alone.

And finally, Michelle Branch is releasing her first music video in thirteen years for the song “Hopeless Romantic,” which is appropriate since that’s what she taught all twenty-something girls to be. The full album is due out in April, but if we just “Breathe,” it might get here sooner.

Hope you enjoyed this week! See you back here next Wednesday. Stay sunny, NYU.
