Kid CudiKid Cudi will co-headline alongside J.Cole and Halsey at the festival, which will take place on June 10-12.

The event will also feature sets from Migos, Jack Harlow, Louis the Child, Black Pumas, Skepta, Beabadoobee, Flume, Roddy Ricch, YG, Tove Lo, Denzel Curry, Playboi Carti, Glass Animals, Kaytranada, Clairo, Becky G, Jazmine Sullivan, Japanese Breakfast, 100 Gecs and many more.

Tickets for the event go on sale on Thursday, January 27 at noon ET on the event’s website; a special presale for three-day and one-day passes and VIP tickets will open exclusively for Citi cardmembers from 10 a.m. ET on Tuesday (Jan. 25) through 11:59 a.m. ET on Thursday (Jan. 27).

In a release announcing this year’s event, promoters Founders Entertainment also said that they’ll be donating $25,000 to the New York City Mayor’s Fund for the victims of January’s devastating Bronx apartment building fire that killed 17 and injured dozens of others; attendees can also support the victims of the blaze by donation to the relief effort via The Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City.

Edward James Olmos to Appear in The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ New Latin Interview Series “Seen”

Edward James Olmos is making a seen

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has launched a new Latin interview video series titled Seen, that will feature interviews with Latino/a stars including the 74-year-old Mexican American Oscar-nominated actor.

Edward James Olmos

Hosted by journalist Nick Barili, Season 1 will feature interviews with Olmos, John Leguizamo and Eva Longoria.

“What a dream to host a series celebrating our community leaders like John Leguizamo, Eva Longoria and Edward James Olmos by giving them the recognition they deserve. Not only for trailblazing with their careers, but also for using their platforms to be a voice for our community. I look forward to sharing their journeys, their passions, and their legacy with the world,” Barili tells Deadline.

“This is a step in the right direction to address the lack of representation in Hollywood, but we still have a lot of work to do,” he added.

In the series premiere above, Barili has a one-on-one conversation with Leguizamo about how he navigated the industry over his decades-long career and how he’s confronted stereotypical casting. They also dive into the underrepresentation of the Latino community both in front of and behind the camera, tokenism, colorism, and what’s left for Leguizamo to accomplish.

“The conversation with John resonated with me at my core,” Barili said. “Not only is his show Freak the first time I truly felt seen, but also, he’s broken down walls for our community every step of his career. When Hollywood would only typecast him in stereotypical, one-dimensional roles, he took it upon himself to create, write and perform his own one-man shows that gave Latinos like me a chance to see themselves as three-dimensional characters that we didn’t get to see when we turned on the TV. They were complex, funny, courageous, vulnerable, and made me feel proud to be Latino.”

The second episode will feature an interview with Olmos, airing on January 31. Barili and Olmos pay a visit to the students from the Youth Cinema Project program at Los Angeles County’s Bell Gardens Intermediate School.

On February 7, Barili and Longoria tour her alma mater, California State University, Northridge, where she received a master’s degree in Chicano Studies in 2013 while filming Desperate Housewives.

Barili co-founded the Latinx in Media & Arts Coalition, which focuses on promoting Latinx creatives, increasing access to traditional and new-media platforms, providing resources and opportunities to youth, and cultivating the next generation of Latinx entertainment and creative professionals.

Kid Cudi to Co-Headline This Year’s Smoker’s Club Fest

Kid Cudi is bringing the fire back to Southern California this spring…

The 37-year-old half-Mexican American rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, and actor will co-headline Smoker’s Club Fest 2022 in Southern California at the end of April.

Kid CudiKid Cudi will headline the festival alongside A$AP Rocky and Playboi Carti.

The music festival and joint celebration of hip-hop and cannabis culture will take place at the 65,000-capacity Glen Helen Amphitheater in San Bernardino, California, on Saturday, April 30.

More performers on the festival lineup include: Ferg, Schoolboy Q, Wiz Khalifa, 2 Chainz, Joey Bada$$, Dom Kennedy, Larry June, Lupe Fiasco, Curren$y, Danny Brown, Rico Nasty, Earl Sweatshirt, Wale, Reason, and Casey Veggies, among many others.

The lineup looks very similar to its 2018 edition, which Cudi also headlined alongside Khalifa and Schoolboy Q in Long Beach.

Rocky and Cudi headlined two different Rolling Loud festivals last year, with Rocky leading Rolling Loud Miami in July 2021 and Cudi kicking off day one of Rolling Loud L.A. in December, where he teased another album.

Rocky, who performed his debut 2011 mixtape Live. Love. ASAP at ComplexCon 2021 last November, has been consistently topping festival bills and teased in his GQ cover story that he was coming out with a new album tentatively titled All Smiles soon. Carti recently wrapped up his Narcissist Tour last month.

Fans can sign up for the special presale, which begins Monday, January 24, at 10:00 am PT, at SmokersClubFest.com.

After the presale, remaining tickets will be available to purchase for the general public at 2:00 pm PT that same day. GA tickets start at $222.99 and VIP tickets start at $408.99.

Silk Sonic will be performing on the Las Vegas Strip beginning on February 25 at Dolby Live.

“Its happening! The sexiest party of the year! Them Silk Sonic Boyz are performing Live in Las Vegas!” Mars tweeted.

The shows are subject to the venue’s Health Check standards to reduce exposure to COVID-19, which requires masks be worn by all attendees and which could also require proof of full vaccination, proof of a negative COVID-19 test before entering the event or a rapid on-site COVID test.

“THE TERMS ARE LOCKED AND VEGAS MIGHT NOT EVER BE THE SAME JACK!! YOU’RE INVITED TO THE HOTTEST SHOW IN SIN CITY!” .Paak added about the first substantial run of gigs in support of the pair’s debut album, An Evening with Silk Sonic.

The collection debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart on the list dated November 27, and No. 2 on the Billboard 200 after the lead single, “Leave the Door Open,” topped the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for eight weeks between April and July 2021.

Jenna Ortega & Melissa Barrera’s “Scream” Debuts at the Top of the Box Office Charts

Jenna Ortega & Melissa Barrera have plenty of reason to scream

Scream, starring the 19-year-old Mexican American & Puerto Rican actress and the 31-year-old Mexican actress, has dethroned Spider-Man: No Way Home over the four-day Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, becoming the first film to unseat the superhero phenomenon since it debuted on December 17.

Jenna Ortega & Melissa BarreraThe slasher revival grossed $34 million from 3,664 locations to top the box office. The impressive haul means that Paramount and Spyglass Media, the companies behind the reboot, will have one very profitable movie on their hands. Scream cost a mere $25 million to produce.

Scream has brought back a moribund franchise to life, introducing younger audiences to a series of films that had been left for dead after the box office disappointment of 2011’s Scream 4.

The key to its appeal was that Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, the directing duo behind Ready or Not, paid homage to the films that came before Scream while updating the series with a savage twist on toxic fandom that resonated with younger crowds.

The filmmakers brought back series veterans Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette and paired them with newcomers like Barrera, Ortega, Jack Quaid and Dylan Minnette. And the DNA remained largely the same — once again, a serial killer in a Ghostface mask comes up with grisly and creative ways to dispatch the townspeople of Woodsboro, California, an idyllic community with a great school system and a shockingly low life expectancy.

Mariah Carey to Release First-Ever Children’s Book, “The Christmas Princess”

Mariah Carey is bringing her love of Christmas to a younger audience…

The 52-year-old half-Venezuelan American Grammy-winning singer, the self-proclaimed Queen of Christmas, is releasing her very own children’s book.

Mariah CareyThe Christmas Princess is a fairytale for holiday lovers of all ages! Little Mariah represents my inner child believing in her own vision, she represents all children, especially those who feel like outsiders or ‘others’, striving to believe in themselves,” the star captioned her Instagram announcement featuring the book’s cover. “It was empowering to transform my childhood turmoil into a modern classic fairytale full of wonder and boundless hope.”

The tome is co-written by Michaela Angela Davis — who also worked with Carey on her 2020 memoir The Meaning of Mariah Carey — with original illustrations by Fuuji Takashi.

The Christmas PrincessIt’s set to be released sometime this fall via Henry Holt Books for Young Readers.

“So many of us have been drowning in ‘bleakocity’ for the last year and half, why not create an enchanted land to escape to?” Carey told People. “The Christmas Princess springs from the same need as my memoir The Meaning of Mariah Carey — to emancipate the little girl in me.”

While The Christmas Princess won’t arrive until closer to Christmas, Carey just wrapped her most festive holiday season yet thanks to her No. 1 hit “All I Want for Christmas Is You” making its annual ascent to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for the third year in a row.

The modern Christmas classic also ushered in the new year as the first No. 1 song of 2022 after surpassing one billion streams on Spotify.

Additionally, the superstar premiered her second holiday music extravaganza with Apple TV+, Mariah’s Christmas: The Magic Continues, and teamed up with McDonald’s for her very own holiday-themed Mariah Menu during the 12 days leading up to Christmas.
