Just A Grand Prairie Girl Taking Over The World. In the last 24 hours, Selena Gomez performed “Let Somebody Go” with Coldplay on The Late Late Show with James Corden. In the realm of streaming, Gomez finished her freshmen season on critically acclaimed show Only Murders in the Building. Gomez stars opposite Waco-born Steve Martin and Martin Short in the comedic crime fiction series. Television critics praised her performance and named her a possible contender come award season.

Debby Ryan Takes A Bite Out Of Los Angeles. Just in time for spooky season. Debby Ryan stars in Night Teeth, Netflix’s vampire femme fatale film set in modern day Los Angeles. Ryan, who grew up in Keller, stars alongside feminist horror icon Megan Fox (Long Live Jennifer’s Body), Euphoria‘s Sydney Sweeney, Game of Thrones’ Alfie Allen, and The Hunger Games’ Alexander Luwig as the vampire elite of L.A. The film premieres today on the streaming platform.

Tay Money and TikTok: A perfect match. The Dallas rapper secured another hit (and bag) on “The Assignment,” her latest single. The single’s audio is one of the most popular clips on TikTok and Instagram’s Reels. From Real Housewives‘ Garcelle Beauvis (Beverly Hills), Whitney Rose (Salt Lake City) to everyone and their mother (including mine) on social media, Money’s phrase is the latest lyric to transform into a cultural euphemism.
