We're Back Again!

Well, Sadly our Summer break is over and we're back again, happy and refreshed with all new posts. It hasn't all been sea, sand and sunshine and when travelling or when the weather wasn't so good I've been working on finishing season 2 of my fan fiction story which is now complete. I got so engrossed in the story that I had to add 3 extra episodes. The next new episode goes live tomorrow.

Thanks for the emails and I'm currently going through and replying to each of them. As it's a short month there's no theme but still there's some great things in store, with the usual mix of music, video and interviews. Plus some other famous singers performing their own interpretations of the "Fame" theme.

The episode of the month is "Appearances" from season 3 and posts for that start on Monday 26th.

Janet Jackson has once again be selected to be the face of Blackglama for an unprecidented 2nd year.

Debbie Allen has been cast as Catherine Avery, Jackson mother, in Grey's Anatomy. Allen has previously directed three episodes of Grey's, and this guest star role marks the first time she'll appear on camera for the show. Look out for her guest spot on the 5th episode of the upcoming 8th season, which starts on ABC on September 22nd.

Nia Peeples is currently playing Pam fields on season 2 of ABC Family's "Pretty Little Liars".

And finally Glee returns to our screens this week so I can't wait to see what the new season has in store. From the promo it looks like they are finally doing a very Fame like dancing in the caffeteria scene! The New season starts in the U.S. on Fox tomorrow and in the U.K. on Sky 1 on Thursday.

Have a great month!
