The MixtapE! Presents Kat Graham, Alexander Ludwig and More New Music

New music Fridays are a thrilling, yet daunting prospect for any music lover. 

It’s essentially a weekly holiday where fan-favorite artists and fresh faces alike drop their latest offerings for all the world to hear, flooding streaming services and digital retailers with an onslaught of aural goodies. But who has the time to sit there and listen to everything before updating their playlists? There’s just too much good stuff! (And, if we’re being honest, usually a few stinkers, too.)

As it turns out, we do. Welcome to The MixtapE!

Allow Kat Graham to kick off Pride Month in style. 

While fans may know the actress for her work on The Vampire Diaries, the 32-year-old is going back to her music roots with her new dance-pop album, Long Hot Summer

“It is such a fun album about liberation,” Kat told E! News’ Daily Pop. “I wanted to do something for Pride for many, many years. I wanted to do something that would benefit GLAAD. I wanted to do something that was a culmination of my journey as an artist.” 

Nick Cannon Defends His Parenting Ahead of Baby No. 8’s Birth

Nick Cannon is doing what works best for him and his family.

During a conversation with Men’s Health published June 3, the Wild ‘N Out host—who is currently expecting baby No. 8, his first with model Brie Tiesi—defended the way his nontraditional family works.

“I’ve seen where people believe a traditional household works, and [yet] there’s a lot of toxicity in that setting,” he told the publication. “It’s not about what society deems is right. It’s like, what makes it right for you? What brings your happiness? What allows you to have joy and how you define family? We all define family in so many different ways.”

Cannon, 41, is dad to 11-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, with ex-wife Mariah Carey, 11-month-old twin boys Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir with Abby De La Rosa, and daughter Powerful Queen, 17 months, and son Golden, 5, with Brittany Bell. He also fathered Zen with Alyssa Scott, however, the 5-month-old died in December after suffering from a rare form of brain cancer.

Andy Cohen Has “Never Seen Anyone” Like This RHODubai Star

Real Housewives’ newest locale is a desert, but the show is anything but dry. 

The newest installation of the franchise, The Real Housewives of Dubai, premiered on June 1, and it’s clear that the women of the United Arab Emirates will be bringing loads of drama this season, according to Andy Cohen. “As the episodes continue,” he said during an exclusive interview on E!’s While You Were Streaming, “I think you start to scratch beyond the surface of what it means to live there.”

Andy predicted that fans will especially enjoy getting to know one Housewife in particular. “I’ve never in 16 years of producing this show seen anyone like Chanel Ayan,” the Bravo host said. “She is just wild. She shows up in a ballgown to the mall. I’ve never seen anything like her. She’s so funny, she’s so beautiful, she’s so bigger than life yet she’s also really relatable and has an incredible back story, which you’ll learn more about later.”

“I think they’re all quite notable,” Andy added of the RHODubai cast, “but I think Chanel is someone who’s really gonna stick in people’s minds.”

Khloé Kardashian Channels Sister Kim in Sexy Latex Look

Did Khloé Kardashian raid Kim Kardashian‘s closet? 

On June 2, the Good American CEO stepped out for dinner in West Hollywood with mom Kris Jenner and sister Kendall Jenner in a longer version of the iconic nude latex dress Kim wore in 2015. 

Khloé was photographed wearing the ankle-length, sleeveless Atsuko Kudo number paired with pointed clear heels and a pink-and-brown fuzzy Fendi purse. She completed the look by rocking her blonde hair in waves and wearing a nude lipstick similar to the shade of the dress.

In 2015, Kim wore a knee-length version of the dress and over the years, has donned different versions of the garment, including one with a plunging neckline.

Perhaps Khloé snuck the garment out of Kim’s massive warehouse, where she stores her fashion archives of more than 30,000 pieces. 

During the May 26 episode of The Kardashians, the SKIMS CEO gave viewers a glimpse of her epic wardrobe. 

How First Kill Puts a Fantasy Twist on Romeo and Juliet

Here’s something to sink your teeth into.

Netflix’s First Kill is the perfect show for those seeking a dark love story with supernatural (and Shakespearean) undertones. In the YA series, teens Juliette (Sarah Catherine Hook) and Calliope Burns (Imani Lewis) are the ultimate star-crossed lovers, having both been born into centuries-old feuding families. To make matters worse, they both need to make their first kill.

Calliope descends from a long line of monster hunters and has two older brothers. “Her biggest thing is just trying to prove to her family that she deserves respect as a monster hunter,” Imani explained in an exclusive featurette, “instead of just the teenage little sister.”

While Calliope wants to feel a sense of belonging, Juliette is trying to distance herself from her vampire family and be a “normal girl.” Juliette can’t just stop being a vampire though, Sarah said, so “there’s all this pressure to drop the whole ‘I want to be human, I want to be normal’ and embrace this incredible matriarchy.”

Jimmy Kimmel May Be Ending His Late Night Gig

Jimmy Kimmel may soon have an earlier bedtime.

The late-night staple has hosted Jimmy Kimmel Live! since its premiere in 2003. But after almost 20 years, Kimmel may be ready to say goodbye to our small screens. In a recent interview, Kimmel—whose contract with ABC ends next year—revealed that he is contemplating whether he wants to continue hosting the show. 

“I wish I knew [what] I was gonna do,” he told Variety. “I have moments where I go, ‘I cannot do this anymore.’ And I have moments where I go, ‘what am I gonna do with my life if I’m not doing this anymore?’ It’s a very complicated thing.”

The 54-year-old noted that there are other factors that come into play as well. “There are practical considerations,” he explained, “and there are family and friend considerations and co-worker considerations.”

He continued, “Eventually, I am going to have to stop doing this. I’m not going to do this forever. I would not be honest at all if I said that I have decided one way or the other. I’m thinking about it a lot, though.”
