Here are the latest Hot Topics presented by Walton Arts Center.
TRAFFIC BY BEYONCE
Social media is “madly in love” with a traffic anchor.
Sheila Watko is a traffic anchor at NBC10 in Philadelphia. She named 14 Beyonce song references during a recent traffic report.
After being introduced, Watko thanked her fellow presenter and said, “I always appreciate it when you ‘say my name,'” a reference to Destiny’s Child’s 1999 hit single.
She referenced the songs “Listen,” “Beautiful Liar,” “Partition,” “Bills, Bills, Bills,” “Crazy in Love,” and “XO,” to name a few.
Watko told her on-air colleagues that she had been planning the feature film for a while.
ANGELINA JOLIE DANCING
Angelina Jolie shows off some moves on social media.
Jolie celebrated the admission of her daughter Zahara to Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia.
Spelman is the oldest institution of higher education for black women in North America.
In one video, you can see Jolie and her daughter join students and their families in dancing the electric slide to Cameo’s 1980s hit “Candy.”
Jolie posted a photo of Zahara with other Spelman students on social media saying it’s partly an honor to have a family member as Spelman’s new daughter.
TMNT SETH ROGEN FILM
Well, half-shell heroes are hitting the big screen with some turtle power.
A post from Seth Rogen’s Instagram announced that the actor and comedian has been working on this project for years. “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutant Mayhem” will be in theaters August of next year.
“EASTER SUNDAY” FILM
Speaking of films, comedian Jo Koy hopes his new film will inspire other filmmakers to continue creating Asian American content.
“Easter Sunday” is inspired by Koy’s comedy routine. He plays Joe, an aspiring comic actor who returns home to the San Francisco Bay Area for Easter. He attempts to bond with his teenage son while dealing with well-meaning but overbearing parents.
The film also stars Tia Carrere, best known for films such as “Wayne’s World” and “True Lies” and Tiffany Haddish to name a few.
“Easter Sunday” is in theaters now.
