The Golden Globe Awards 2016 Highlights

by

Drumroll, please, for last night’s “party of all reward parties,” essentially The 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards. It was exactly how hostess Liliana described it: expect the unexpected! From the spectacular fashions to draw dropping wins and speeches, this year’s ceremony brought strong competition between film and television, and Cliché has The Golden Globe Awards 2016 Highlights for you here!
Welcoming Back Host: Ricky Gervais

He was a topic of discussion during the Fashion Highlights, and with good reason. The return of Ricky Gervais was enough to keep audiences at the Golden Globes and those watching at home with tense smiles and baited breath, wondering what he was going to say next. Overall, Gervais, with his “it’s funny because it’s true” moments and all, did a good job of hosting; though, Matt Damon might feel otherwise. (Sorry, Matt.)

The epitome of elegance and grace, Kate Winslet, never ceases to amaze us with her loveliness — be it her diction, dress, or overall being. And yes, Kate, we couldn’t agree with you more: 2015 was an incredible year for women in film.

These two beauties were a hilarious duo. They had a harmonious chemistry, and to be honest, we’re envious of their sharp-witted, inside humor. We wished we could’ve sat with them at the after-party.

Who else had goosebumps when Sylvester Stallone received his award? It was the first standing ovation of the night, and no one seemed to be more shocked than Sylvester himself. It was a moment that left us with all the feels.

Though music came first, acting has been a close second calling for artist and singer Lady Gaga. Her guest appearance on American Horror Story: Hotel! showed us her flexibility and creativity in the entertainment and music industry. Not to mention, Lady Gaga’s speech was as beautiful as she. (On a side note: what was up with Leo’s side-eye? We spy memes.)

Cheers to our boy, Sam Smith! We couldn’t be happier for this gentleman who’s a sweetheart through and through, and of course, a genuinely talented artist, too.

Tom Hanks presented the most touching speech in admiration and respect for Denzel Washington. Listening to Tom Hanks’ speech and watching Denzel Washington’s reaction was enough to have us reaching for the tissues. We couldn’t think of a better person to have been honored with such an award; congrats, Denzel!

After much waiting and anticipation, Taraji finally received the recognition she deserves! (By the way, we would’ve loved some of those baked cookies!) Her award for her role as Cookie proves that the character’s personality is what our society longs for: to answer without hesitation or manipulate words, as described by Taraji during the Fashion Highlights.

The look of anticipation on Leonardo’s face could be felt through television screens and right into our hearts. We practically felt the anxiety riding within him, as everyone waited to hear the results, but how could we blame him? After listening to Leonardo’s interviews on the red carpet and acceptance speech regarding The Revenant, it’s no wonder the man was almost brought to tears when his name was announced. Now how about the next stop: the Oscars?!
Other winners from the night included:
Best Performance By A Supporting Actress In A Mini-Series or Television Movie: Maura Tierney, The Affair (1st win & nomination)
Best Television Series, Comedy: Mozart in the Jungle

Lady Gaga Releases Powerful Video “Till It Happens To You”

by

Before I start, let me give you the same warning that the video does before you hit ‘play’: This is not your typical upbeat Lady Gaga song, but the raw take on this pressing issue: one in five college women will be sexually assaulted this year.

Lady Gaga partnered with the crew behind The Hunting Ground, a documentary about college rape, and dove head first into the deep and dark place of sexual assault on campuses.
Sexual assault is a real thing, and happens every day to many people around the world; it is not something that is meant to be kept a secret, and it is not something to be swept under the rug; it is something that needs to be brought to light. Lady Gaga did just that by creating this video and giving us a look into what some may be going through right now.
Currently, only six percent of sexual assault survivors are reporting what has happened to them. Personally, I’ve had a few close friends of mine struggle with speaking up after being sexually assaulted out of fear that their assaulter would retaliate, or out of shame that it happened to them. When they finally did, I got to watch the freedom that comes with speaking up wash over them and got to see them rebuild. Another thing I learned through their struggle, pain, and beautiful boldness was this: By being brave, you give others permission to be brave as well.
Lady Gaga shows through her video for “‘Till It Happens To You” that she wants to empower and encourage those who are survivors of sexual assault to support each other with this new release.


A portion of the proceeds from the single will go to various organizations that support sexual assault survivors.
There are way too many cases that go unknown or unspoken about. If you or anyone you know has been sexually assaulted, know that hope is out there, help is out there, and safety is out there. You are worth the fight.

2015 Met Gala

by

The world’s most talked about celebrities stepped out for fashion’s biggest night at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York on Monday. The theme this year was “Chinese Whispers: Tales of the East in Art, Film, and Fashion,” so we saw tons of reds, interesting headpieces, and intricate embellishments. From Beyoncé’s sheer Givenchy dress not leaving much to the imagination to Zendaya’s gorgeous Fausto Puglisi mini skirt/train, the 2015 Met Gala was one serious red carpet. Check out some of our favorite — and least favorite — looks from the night below!

2015 Oscars Winners

by

The 87th Annual Academy Awards honored some of the most remarkable films, actors, and directors to date at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles last night. As predicted, films Birdman and The Grant Budapest Hotel reigned supreme, and an extremely excited (and humble!) Eddie Redmayne took home the award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything.
Stand-out performances included Lady Gaga giving tribute to The Sound of Music for its 50th anniversary (complete with a tear-jerking hug with Julie Andrews herself), Common and John Legend performing “Glory” (thus making David Oyelowo and Chris Pine cry), and Jennifer Hudson performing “I Can’t Let Go” during the In Memoriam segment.

Other note-worthy moments included Patricia Arquette’s acceptance speech about equal rights. “To every woman who gave birth, to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation, we have fought for everybody else’s equal rights,” she said. “It’s time to have wage equality once and for all. And equal rights for women in the United States of America.”

Roseland Ballroom Goes Out With A Gaga

by

The lights of NYC’s historic Roseland Ballroom will permanently fade to black after Lady Gaga’s performance tonight. She concludes her seven-day residency, and the Roseland Ballroom goes out with a Gaga. Roseland can squeeze only 3,500 people under its historic roof, so Gaga collaborated with Verizon Wireless to live stream the final show tonight on GetMoreGaga.com at 9 p.m. ET.
The legendary venue located at 239 West 52nd St. was around for nearly 58 years, and originally opened its doors to rowdier rock and pop musicians, such as Madonna, Bob Dylan, Beyonce, Metallica, Radiohead, and many more. The reason for Roseland’s closing is said to be its  low-occupancy limit which appears to have financially taken its toll amid competition from larger and newer venues around the city.
Gaga puts Roseland to bed with her risque outfits, her occasional profanity-laced dialogue, and most importantly an outstanding performance. Lady Gaga shouted to her crowd of “Little Monsters” “We’ve grown up together haven’t we?, “But you’re still wasted and you’re still having fun.” (Mashable.com) She closes the show with songs from The FameBorn This Way, and Artpop. 
We say good-bye to Roseland Ballroom but will never forget the iconic musical memories made on its stage.

Will the App Replace the Album?

by

lady-gaga-applause-singe-cover-bigLady Gaga’s Artpop album/app combo debuts this November, and Jay-Z’s latest album was released as an app to a number of Samsung customers, which has everyone wondering if the app will ever come close to replacing the album. Even David Gilmour and Calvin Harris, names not exactly synonymous with the avant garde, unlike Gaga and Jay-Z, who both have a flair for the modern art and drama. Not that Harris and Gilmour aren’t willing to change, or even trendy, but they are odd names to see attached to the switch.

The largest problem with the album-as-app concept is that, if everyone releases their album as a separate app, you’ll be inundated with apps, and have no way to mix and match your favorite songs from different albums into a playlist, at least not without a third-party app developed for that specific purpose. And that just means another app to add to the collection. Logistically, the app album is a nightmare, as coding an app isn’t as trivial matter as we might want to believe. It is far more likely that the app will be the new concert DVD, or the new deluxe box-set album, rather than the new CD, as the app will always be an extra. What you want when you buy an album on iTunes, or even as a CD, is the music. You don’t need any of the flair that comes with a box-set, you don’t need to see taped performances, and you don’t need any of the numerous peripherals that the music apps are said to have. All you want, when it comes down to it, is the ability to play the music whenever you want, in as convenient a fashion as possible. We already have that.
