September 29th, 2014 9:04am EDT
SNL Chris Pratt

New cast members Michael Che and Pete Davidson looked perfectly comfortable as they made auspicious debuts. Overall, this was an episode that was not entirely focused ...

Mayim Bialik Voices Her Issue With Ariana Grande’s Sexy Billboar
“Big Bang Theory” star Mayim Bialik just isn’t a fan of Ariana Grande.

The girl who personified eclectic and cool during her run in the 1980's hit "Blossom" has found offense to a billboard featuring the singer in a scantily clad outfit and stiletto heels, promoting her new CD, "My Everything."

Ariana Grande Made News Not Related To Her Nude Photo Leak... Guess

September 4th, 2014 8:55am EDT
Ariana Grande Tops Billboard 200 With ‘My Everything’: This Week
Unsurprisingly, Ariana Grande scored the second #1 album of her short recording career with My Everything. My Everything opened impressively selling 169,000 copies, trumping the opening sales of 2013 effort, Yours Truly (138,000 copies). 169,000 copies is robust by today’s standards by all means, but had My Everything came out a couple of years ago, think about how many hundred thousands of copies it might’ve sold. To quote Mary J. Blige (at least partially), “Reminisce on the” sales of the past…

Review: Ariana Grande Shines Vocally on ‘My Everything’

August 27th, 2014 9:50am EDT
Ariana Grande
On Ariana Grande’s sophomore album My Everything, things feel different from her debut Yours Truly from 2013. The voice still soars commandingly – there’s no difference there – but My Everything has more of the feel of a big pop album. Sure Yours Truly had some exceptional records itself and blended pop and R&B sensibilities much like this album, but My Everything feels as if Grande has better established her niche and is flexing.

My Everything is a solid second effort from Grande, feeling like the right album for the right time. That said, the album itself, while good, is by no means...
