Analysis: ‘Mike’ punches Mike Tyson story


And if you don’t have children, have you checked all your summer travel plans? Or maybe you haven’t gone further than your local green market. That’s perfectly fine because home is where the heart is – so let’s love new content.

The titular subject of this new Hulu show is Mike Tyson, although the streamer claims the limited series also “examines class in America, race in America, media fame and power, misogyny, the wealth divide , the promise of the American Dream and ultimately our own role in shaping Mike’s story.”
“Mike” chronicles Tyson’s rise from a teenager who committed petty crimes to boxing champion, as well as his past legal controversies – in 1992, Tyson was convicted of rape and sentenced to six years in prison (although that he has served less than Three). And in case you haven’t heard, Tyson isn’t happy about the project at all.

The first two episodes of “Mike” are streaming now.

“Sell the CO”

The cast of "Selling the OC"  is shown in a scene from the Netflix reality show.
My love of homemade porn is well documented.

So imagine my delight when Netflix announced a spin-off of the popular real estate series “Selling Sunset.”

This reality show still follows the Oppenheim Group – run by twin brothers Jason and Brett Oppenheim – but is focused on the company’s second office in Newport Beach in Orange County, California, which means new realtors, new drama and new homes from several millions to covet.

It’s streaming now.

‘House of Ho’ Season 2

And it’s not just their mega-mansions. I feel no shame when it comes to my obsession with the rich.

Enter a new season of “House of Ho,” centering on a Vietnamese American family — led by patriarch Binh Ho and his wife, Hue Ho, immigrants who have built a multimillion-dollar real estate and banking empire in Houston.

The second season introduces new cast members from the expanded family tree, including more cousins, future in-laws — and some of their families, too. That means there’s plenty of opportunity for more conflict and snark alongside the luxury we’ve come to love.

The first three episodes air on HBO Max (which is owned by CNN’s parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery).

Two things to listen to

“God Made” by DJ Khaled

DJ Khaled performs at an event during Miami Swim Week on July 16 in Miami Beach, Florida.

And another.

DJ Khaled is releasing his 13th studio album, ‘God Did’, and the super-producer seems more excited about the new project than his listeners.

Naturally, since earlier this month he shared on Instagram that Jay-Z will be one of the featured artists.

“HOV DID!!! HOV VOCALS IS IN! WOW,” read the caption of a series of photos, which included her shocked reaction to the cameo.

The duo previously teamed up with rapper Future for the 2016 single “I Got the Keys.”

“God Did” is out now.

‘Will of the People’ by Muse

(L to R) Matt Bellamy and Chris Wolstenholme of Muse perform during the Eurockéennes music festival in eastern France on July 3.

Muse is not only releasing a new album, but getting into the non-fungible token game: “Will of the People”, the band’s ninth studio album, is also available as an NFT edition.

This combination of rock music and technology should apparently come as no surprise. “The band have always been at the forefront of technological innovation in their creativity and artistry,” Sebastian Simone, vice president of audience and strategy at Warner Records UK, told The Guardian.

“Will of the People” is also out now.

Something to talk about

(L to R) Wells Adams and Sarah Hyland attend the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas on September 21, 2018.

Has August become the new month of June when it comes to celebrity weddings?

There have been plenty of notable people’s nuptials this month – singer James Bay and music promoter Lucy Smith, former Facebook executives Sheryl Sandberg and Tom Bernthal, and actors Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, who legally wed in Las Vegas in July but had a big ceremony this month at her Riceboro estate, in Georgia.
But the wedding that warmed my heart the most was that of “Modern Family” star Sarah Hyland and former “Bachelorette” Wells Adams.

I could tick off a list of reasons why I find this couple adorable, including that they first connected via social media (as did my husband and I, although our meeting was on the grandpa social networks, AOL Instant Messenger). But ultimately, I think I’m really, really happy to see someone who survives Bachelor Nation and finds true love.

something to sip

Snoop Dogg attends the WrestleMania 39 Kickoff Party at SoFi Stadium on August 11 in Inglewood, CA.

Snoop Dogg is an example for hip-hop artists around the world.

I’ve often wondered if rappers are “aging” out of the game, given that some of our favorites, like Snoop, are now in their 50s.

But that’s clearly not a concern because he’s still here to make music — in addition to his own discography, It is a long time in the K-pop scene, having collaborated with members of BTS, Psy, and Girls Generation, among others. And he also makes moves.
Just this month, I reported on a new cereal called “Snoop Loopz” from his company Broadus Foods and the launch of his “Doggyland – Kids Songs & Nursery Rhymes” children’s series. The Doggfather was co-creator of this anime series and composed the main character’s vocals.

Way to expand your empire, Snoop!
