This week celebrated the best of the best in the music industry with the American Music Awards. Rihanna was awarded the Icon of the Year award, while Justin Timberlake had a huge night as well taking home 3 awards and even sharing a hilarious face-off moment with Taylor Swift. Miley Cyrus had another purposefully awkward performance, which included a cat of all things, although I’m sure it was strategically planned. Then for a second, I thought we had another trapped in the closet on our hands, but it was just Lady Gaga and R.Kelly reenacting a presidential affair for their performance. J.Lo’s tribute to the late Celia Cruz was an absolutely show stopping event with her flamenco inspired outfits and high flying acrobats. One Direction finally got a first big win in the states, and what would a music award show be without a bit of twerking of course? Pitbull had a twerking contest between some of his dancers and hopefully Miley Cryus was taking a few notes.
Brian from Family Guy is killed off
This was certainly not a good week for fans of Family Guy. This week they lost one of their favorite characters and it wasn’t the sister that we love to hate, but rather Brian aka the family dog. Social media was in a frenzy and most of us were just left confused, as fans quickly took to the internet to voice their angered concerns. Steve Callaghan, the executive producer of Family Guy, sat down exclusively with E! News to explain how the idea came about. “Well, this was an idea that got pitched in the writers room and it sort of caught fire, and we thought it could be a fun way to shake things up,” Callaghan said. “As soon as this idea came up, we started talking about what the next couple episodes could be and we got very excited about the way this change will affect the family dynamics and the characters.” Many are still wondering, ” Why Brian?” Even though Callaghan and his team thought that losing one of the kids would have been more traumatic, most fans would still have preferred that Meg Griffin or even a neighbor should have gotten the cut. At this moment, there are hundreds of websites created petitioning for the creators of Family Guy to bring back the furry family member. Lets hope the major change that they were looking for does more help than harm.
