THE GET DOWN 2

After making its debut last August, The Get Down is returning to our screens in just a few weeks’ time. Today Netflix announced that season two of Baz Luhrmann’S ’70s hip-hop series will be released on April 7 (and yes, because it’s Netflix, the entire season will be available to stream right away). “We’re gonna take our music from minor to major league,” says Shaolin Fantastic (played by Shameik Moore) in the 15-second teaser trailer.

“Part II is set in 1978, a year after the events of the debut season,” according to Deadline. “With disco reigning supreme, a new, as-yet-unnamed genre is burgeoning, with young lovers Books and Mylene caught up in the looming cultural revolution. Amidst the backdrop of a bankrupt New York City, ruthless gangsters and money-hungry record label bosses, they discover it’s only their creativity and love that will carry them through – and that they’ll sacrifice everything for their music, and each other.”

Michael Bonner is a 2nd grade teacher at South Greenville Elementary school in Greenville, North Carolina.

Mariah Carey was the first major headline of 2017 after her “New Year’s Rockin Eve” performance in NYC’s Times Square, which was marred by technical difficulties that abruptly left the singer walking around the stage and talking to the crowd before giving up and leaving. The story continued in the following days with Careys camp accusing Dick Clark Productions of sabotaging the moment, while the show’s producers stating it was an unfortunate technical problem.

On Wednesday night (Feb. 15), Carey made her first TV appearance since the scandal, appearing as musical guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Assisted by YG, the superstar diva performed her new single “I Don’t” for the first-time.

Produced by Jermaine Dupri, the song revolves around Carey’s break-up with ex-fiancé James Packer and is the first offering off Mimi’s forthcoming new solo LP due later this year via Epic Records. Get the song on iTunes and watch Mariah and YG below.
