TODAY: SAG Awards, Armie Hammer, Weekend Box-Office

01.30.2017 | By |

This morning’s segment felt as if Kathie Lee, Hoda and I had an off-camera conversation that happened to be caught-on-camera. They have an incredible ability to make an interview feel like a nice chat. I usually prepare, research, read many articles for the segment, but as soon as Hoda asks you the first question, you can’t help but feel as if they are very close friends of yours who you went to lunch with. Time flies by when you are with them. Enjoy the segment.

‘House Of Cards’ Season 5 To Premiere May 30th!

01.20.2017 | By |

Who would make a better President? Frank Underwood or Donald Trump? Season 5 of House of Cards will never be more timely and reflective of the current political landscape. With Donald Trump now officially in office, Kevin Spacey’s fictional character of President Frank Underwood will be a eerie example of life imitating art. Check out the trailer and tell me your eyes didn’t pop wide open. Read More

TODAY: The Most Anticipated Movies and TV Shows Of 2017

01.2.2017 | By |

The first Monday of 2017 and I got the chance to be on the same show Katie Couric co-hosted. Alas, I didn’t get a chance to see her, but awesome to know I was feet away from her. This is also my second New Year’s Day segment in a row. Last year we pre-taped, but this morning was live. I discussed the ‘Most Anticipated Movies and TV Shows of 2017’. Check out above my personal picks for this year!

TODAY: Must Things To See And Read For Thanksgiving Weekend!

11.6.2016 | By |

Of all the segments I have done for the TODAY show in the last 3 years, this was by far the most challenging and visually dynamic one I’ve done. The concept is simple: discuss three cultural topics, under 5 munutes, on three stages with three hosts. It sounds like an obstacle course, right? Lol. From what I was told, these types of segments have been done before but with THREE contributors. The fact that TODAY producers allowed me to do all three means they have tremendous trust in me which I highly appreciate them for it. Also, I found out it was the first time they were testing out the new format so whatever you see here has never been done before on their show. I’m very fortunate to have had the opportunity and for actually pulling it off!

Brian Tyree Henry On The ‘N’ Word, Black/Latino Culture And ‘Paper Boi’

10.31.2016 | By |

On the tenth episode of my Highly Relevant podcast, I had a chance to chat with Brian Tyree Henry, a.k.a. Paper Boi on FX’s Atlanta. We spoke mainly about diversity in the arts, but we did get to the nitty gritty on the prolific usage as of late of the word ‘nigga” in television and film (music has been like that from the beginning). Aren’t we trying to eliminate the word from our vocabulary? We also conversed on his pal Donald Glover’s casting in the new Star Wars movie, his first encounter with him, his character Paper Boi, the show’s appeal, his view on Latino culture, Broadway’s lack of minority storytelling and why Gina Rodriguez is so hot to him. Read on or listen to the interview! Read More

TODAY: Is The Taylor Swift / Katy Perry Beef Real And Is Taylor Releasing A New Album October?

09.12.2016 | By |

Photo above refers to the Pitch Perfect wedding, but we’re here to chat Taylor/Katy. I went on the TODAY show this morning to discuss some celebrity news with TV icon Kathie Lee Gifford and the talented Hoda Kotb and one of the topics I spoke about, apart from some celebrity weddings and Amy Poehler’s Creative Arts Emmy win, was about Taylor Swift’s beef with Katy Perry OR is it the other way around? Watch the video as I tackle the reasons behind the putative friction amongst both pop superstars and if Taylor will be putting out a new album this October. We have a feeling yes due to a fact I mention on air.

TODAY: Breaking Down MTV’s VMAs, J-Lo & Marc Anthony, Rob Lowe’s Roast

08.29.2016 | By |

This TODAY show segment I did this morning on Kathie Lee & Hoda was absolutely cool. It was bicultural and it felt like an extension of me and my HIGHLY RELEVANT podcast, which you should listen to if you haven’t. Overall, it was just fun to talk about the Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony event which was such a Latino subject, since the concert was in Spanish, with salsa music and the song No Me Ames is a Spanish-language tune. Also, I enjoyed being able to discuss my dissatisfaction with MTV’s VMAs on my podcast, then break it down the morning after on national TV. Truly a blessing for a professional in the pop culture industry. Hope you enjoy it!
