Darren Star and Lily Collins take us inside their new rom-com series, Emily in Paris
For the Netflix dramedy, the 'Sex and the City' creator introduces us to a new city and gal with just as many suitors and shoes. Plus, watch an exclusive clip from the upcoming Netflix series. The new Netflix series Emily in Paris sees Emily (Lily Collins) ship off from Chicago to the City of Lights for a job at a luxury marketing firm, but she soon discovers the capital isn’t all buttery croissants and suave beaux. Speaking as much French as Rosetta Stone could teach her on the eight-hour flight, Emily must prove to her prickly new colleagues she’s got that je ne sais quoi that makes her worthy of her new home.
For the last four years, fans have watched as the Billboard Music Awards—an award show dictated by the venerated music publication's iconic charts, and those dictated by (ostensibly) American music tastes—as has handed the trophy for Top Social Artist over to an act that's recorded hardly anything in English.
A fan-voted category that once belonged to Justin Bieber, who won six years in a row, now seems to be firmly in the clutches of a septet out of South Korea who have been on the forefront of a global music revolution. We're talking, of course, about BTS.
Pregnant Chelsea Houska's Baby Bump Album Ahead of 4th Child
Getting her growth on! Chelsea Houska has been showing her baby bump progress since her August 2020 pregnancy announcement. “One more DeBoer!” the Teen Mom 2 star captioned her Instagram reveal at the time. “Coming early 2021.” In the social media upload, the 16 and Pregnant alum shared a photo of her family members’ names written on a wall at their new home-in-progress, including husband Cole DeBoer, son Watson and daughters Aubree and Layne. The list ended with the word “Baby.” DeBoer wrote in a post of his own: “The Grand Finale. (We think.) Baby No. 4.” He and the South Dakota native revealed the sex of their baby-to-be later that same month with the help of pink confetti cannons. Houska said in August that she “already” had a budding belly, writing, “I’m fairly early, but I guess once the fourth baby [comes], you just be popping right away.” She went on to write, “It still feels crazy that everybody knows. I was so afraid that I was going to say something because I am such a bad liar and not good at hiding things so I haven’t been on social media. But I am so excited to share this whole process with you.” While Houska has received criticism for her fourth pregnancy, it “cracks [her] up,” she told Entertainment Tonight in August, explaining, “People just don’t realize that we are almost 30, I think, and married, and we’re not teenagers anymore. I’ve always wanted to be a mom, this is what I always wanted in life.
For their first two years, the group—comprised of RM, V, Suga, Jimin, Jin, J-Hope and Jungkook—had beaten out the likes of the Biebs, Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Demi Lovato, and Selena Gomez while standing as the lone K-pop representative anywhere in the mix of nominees. But as the popularity of K-pop across the globe has only grown exponentially, things have changed. And as the Hallyu—or Korean Wave—grows, the rising tide is beginning to, as the saying goes, lift all boats.
Chicago pizza chain calls out Emily in Paris over joke slamming its deep-dish
Chicago chain Lou Malnati's said a joke in Emily in Paris making fun of its pizza was "heartless in the midst of COVID-19."Netflix's buzzy new show Emily in Paris made a cheesy joke at the expense of Lou Malnati's, one of Chicago's most famous pizza chains, and the brand is having none of it.
Beginning at the 2019 ceremony, BTS ceded their title as the lone K-pop group to have earned a Top Social Artist nomination. Though no one has been able to beat them yet—seriously, the BTS Army is strong—they've faced stiff competition in the category by fellow South Korean acts EXO and GOT7 this year, as well as last. (And as for the nominees from the world of Western music—Grande and Billie Eilish—well, it's certainly an honor to have just been nominated.)
Outside of the microcosm that is the BBMAs, however, one thing is clear: BTS has helped usher in a global celebration of K-pop, reminding everyone that music is a universal language that transcends all borders. In just the month of October alone, fans of the genre have had projects from five acts to look forward to, including the highly-anticipated debut album from BLACKPINK on Oct. 2, with the latest from BTS expected at the end of November.
