Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Wall Art Confirms Their Love For California

Published

on

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are not feeling homesick for the U.K. just yet, at least judging by their taste in wall art.

During a recent Zoom call in celebration of the one-year anniversary of Markle’s workwear capsule collection launched in partnership with her patronage Smart Works, fans spotted a new work of art sitting on the mantle behind the Duchess of Sussex. This wall art is, in fact, the sheet music cover for California’s official state anthem “I Love You, California,” which features an illustration of a California grizzly bear hugging the state.

The framers of this vintage print, Nicholas and Riley, shared their enthusiasm over the revelation of their royal customers on Instagram, writing, “Hi All! I am taking over my Dads IG for this one post. Recently the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, a.k.a. Harry and Meghan, got their royal hands on one of my Dads framed I love you California’s. He doesn’t think it’s a big deal but it is. A lot of famous people have his work but this one is different, they’re royalty! Plus they’re the super cute and fun ones.”

The royals new art is also guaranteed to look gorgeous next to any of the paint swatches the couple has been testing out on the walls of their new $14.7 million Santa Barbara mansion.

Published

By

October is undoubtedly one of the best months of the year. Warm apple cider, freshly fallen leaves, and exciting Halloween costume ideas all make the month that much better than the rest.

This year, we’re throwing the what-hot-outfit-to-wear-on-Halloween-rulebook out of the window because guess what? It’s possible to have a creative costume that also keeps you warm and comfortable. Whether you live somewhere cold or you’re just looking for another reason to stay in your sweats, these ideas cover all the bases. Take a look at the best costumes that’ll keep you warm this Halloween, and remember that comfort is most definitely key.

Debating the first ‘Dancing with the Stars’ elimination and sizing up the songs for ‘Disney Night’ [WATCH]

Published

“I was actually surprised that Carole was in the bottom two considering the fact that she was one of the more high-profile celebrities when the cast was announced,” says Cordell Martin about “Tiger King” subject Carole Baskin‘s near-elimination on “Dancing with the Stars” at the end of “First Elimination” night. Martin discussed the first ouster with me and Jeffrey Kare. Watch our discussion above.

Martin expected Baskin to advance safely through the early weeks of the competition like other controversial figures in seasons past — remember Sean Spicer? So he gives credit to fans for actually voting in line with the judges scores. Baskin was at the bottom of the leaderboard with Charles Oakley, and “between those two, you pretty much had to choose the lesser of two evils,” says Kare regarding their low-scoring dance routines.

Like last season, judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Derek Hough and Bruno Tonioli get to pick one of the bottom two contestants to save and one to eliminate. Tonioli voted to save Oakley, but Inaba and Hough saved Baskin instead since her week-two routine scored slightly higher than Oakley’s. So Baskin will get a chance to perform yet another cat-themed routine, this time to “Circle of Life” from “The Lion King.”

As for the other songs being performed on “Disney Night,” “it would be nice if there were a bit more variety,” Kare argues. Indeed, we’re getting dances inspired by movies that have been featured on the show before like “Moana,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Beauty and the Beast.” Martin agrees, “Disney has this huge vault of films and they keep recycling the same, like, 10 songs each time. It’s a little annoying because you’re always comparing them to past routines.” Though he’s excited to finally see “The Princess and the Frog” get a showcase.

Which routines are you most looking forward to tonight, and which Disney properties (if any) do you think should be retired from “DWTS” to usher in some new material?

Be sure to make your predictions so that the contestants can see how they’re faring in our racetrack odds. You can keep changing your predictions until just before the next episode airs every Monday on ABC. You’ll compete to win a spot on our leaderboard and eternal bragging rights.

Broadcast Share Unreleased Demo “Where Are You?” On Trish Keenan’s Birthday

Published

By

A few years ago, Broadcast’s James Cargill shared a new demo on what would have been Trish Keenan’s birthday. Today, he’s done it again. Keenan would have been 52 today — she passed away in 2011 — and Cargill has uploaded a 4-track demo from 2002 called “Where Are You?” to his SoundCloud page. That places its creation sometime between their 2000 debut The Noise Made By The People (which we wrote about earlier this year for its 20th anniversary) and their 2003 follow-up Haha Sound. Check it out below.
