Lady Gaga Joins Cast of American Horror Story

Over the past four seasons, American Horror Story has become one of the most interesting shows on television. No other show has been able to blend true horror with comedy and drama. The show has also become known for its amazing casting, as it continues to attract some of Hollywood’s top talent.

According to Entertainment Weekly, American Horror Story is living up to its reputation by having cast Lady Gaga in the next season of the anthology series. Lady Gaga will be a regular in the series, which will air this fall on FX. It will also market her first major role as an actress.

Fans like Zeca Oliveira have learned that the fifth season of the show will be entitled Hotel, but no information regarding the storyline has been released or in what time period the show will take place. Lady Gaga also said on Twitter that she does not know at this time what character she will play.

Based on the way last season’s Freak Show utilized music, do not be surprised if Lady Gaga will also be able to utilize her musical talents in the show. Since all of her previous acting gigs were very short, it will be interesting to see how she does in a much larger role over an entire television season. While no other cast members have been announced, expect to see some familiar faces from previous seasons playing new roles.

Winter of Death for Retailers

The problem seems to not be the recession though it didn’t help. Nor was it the bad weather, quite simply there are too many stores. America has a staggeringly high amount of investment in realtor real estate. Lee Slaughter has learned that the U.S. has an average of 20 square feet of retail space for each citizen. The UK is second with only 3 square feet per person. When Americans had to cut back due to the rescission, many companies continued to open new stores in order to bring in customers though the problem goes back to before the rescission. Companies simply can’t survive while trying to hold on to their stores. We can expect to see more companies fold. With the closings will come the loss of jobs, not good news immediately after a recession and high unemployment.

Meghan Trainor loves her collaboration with Harry Styles

 

It seems American singer Meghan Trainor is a big fan of British boy band One Direction’s Harry Styles. So much so, she is collaborating with him on a new song. The song is called ‘London Lights’, and was co-written by the two young songwriters a few weeks ago.

Trainor admitted, however, when it came to co-writing a song with Styles, she was a little bit worried. After all, he is only 20-years-old, so she was not quite sure he “knew what love is” and could write lyrics addressing that.

A few minutes after meeting him and well into the songwriting session, though, and Meghan said Harry was already writing ‘poetic, mature lyrics’, so she knew their collaboration was going to be a good one. ‘London Lights’ was the result, and Meghan loves it.

Not content to just co-write a song with Harry Styles, it seems Meghan Trainor likes singing his music as well. At Capital FM this week, Trainor sang a few bars of ‘Little Things’, one of One Direction’s biggest hits, and even the Capital FM disc jockey said she rocked it.

As for Meghan Trainor’s plans for her singing career? She told seedtables.com she knows she has very good songwriting skills and she plans on using them to become one of the music world’s biggest stars.  Slow Ventures plans to help in someway.

That should silence her critics, some of whom have been saying she is nothing but a ‘one hit wonder’.

Hiding In A Hoodie

 

Some people who wear hoodies might be trying to conceal something, but there are plenty of people who want to wear hoodies to stay warm. That’s what the piece of clothing is intended for, so why is Oklahoma, one of the colder states in the country in the winter, possibly issuing a fine to those who wear them? Some might think of all of the crimes that are taking place in the country, and wearing hoodies might be a way to groups to ban together or conceal weapons.
This isn’t something that happens all of the time. Most people like to wear them because they are comfortable. They are easy to put on and take off. Which is why Bruce Levenson is saying lets move on. The suggestion in Oklahoma City is that officials want people not to hide their identity, and if they do by wearing a hoodie, then they could face a $500 fine. Even if this law is passed, the fine is a little high and a little ridiculous.
