We can always rely on Netflix for a decent rom-com to cheer us up after a long, miserable day in the office. They’ve released some of the strongest movies recently including Set It Up, Someone Great and Isn’t It Romantic and their string of success has yet to stop.

Upcoming release Always Be My Maybe is bound to win you over. Netflix dropped the trailer today and our hearts can’t quite cope.

Childhood friends Sasha and Marcus have a falling out and don’t speak for 15 years. But when Sasha, now a celebrity chef in Los Angeles, returns to her hometown of San Francisco to open a new restaurant, she runs into her old pal — a happily complacent musician still living at home and working for his dad. Though the two are reluctant to reconnect, they soon find the old sparks — and maybe some new ones — are there.

Starring Ali Wong (Hard Knock Wife), Randall Park (Ant-Man and the Wasp), Michelle Buteau (Broad City), Vivian Bang (White Rabbit), Karan Soni (Deadpool 2), Charlyne Yi (Paper Heart), Daniel Dae Kim (Hellboy), James Saito (While We’re Young), with Keanu Reeves (John Wick) and Lyrics Born.

The film is directed by Nahnatchka Khan (Fresh Off the Boat, Don’t Trust the B____ in Apt. 23) from a script by Ali Wong, Randall Park, and Michael Golamco (Grimm, Please Stand By), and is produced by Nathan Kahane, Erin Westerman, Ali Wong, and Randall Park. Brendan Ferguson executive produces.

Always Be My Maybe will be released on May 31.

We ADORED Set It Up when it hit Netflix.

It was rom-com gold with two leads that genuinely sizzled together on screen – yep, we're looking at you Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell.

The pair obvs worked together so well that bigwig execs made the clever decision to put them together for another movie, and we are ON BOARD.

Plans for the flick haven't been confirmed but it's deffo not a sequel.

Producer Justin Nappi said, ''While it was clear that audiences were clamoring for a sequel, we are excited by the thought of creating a new, distinct film that explores different romantic comedy tropes while still being anchored in everything that we loved about the first movie.''

Fellow producer Juliet Berman said, ''It will be exciting to see Glen and Zoey do something completely different.''

She added, ''We all talked about what we could do again and [Most Dangerous Game] was something that Katie brought to us that was creatively exciting as a next project and we jumped on it.''

We watched Set It Up on repeat when it came out so sign us up for whatever they make together. 

Now hurry the f*ck up Netflix and serve up the goods.

The Beyhive is buzzing, to say the least.

Taylor Swift opened the Billboard Music Awards last night with her new single, ME!. It was a colourful occasion, with Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco by her side.

There were rainbows, umbrella dancing, butterflies, hearts and general good vibes all round, but once aspect of her performance was noticed in particular: the marching band.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Taylor Swift (@georgialovestaylor) on

Taylor began the performance with a drumline, which SOME fans online are comparing to Beyoncé's iconic Homecoming show at Coachella.

Part of the Beyhive are throwing some major shade online right now;

"TAYLOR SWIFT JUST BIT TF OUTTA BEYONCÉ" is a fairly extreme example, but others are saying that Taylor may have added the drumline on purpose to …drum…up some tasty drama and get everyone talking about her new song. 

She is a marketing genius after all, let's not forget the entire Reputation build-up. Girl's got game.

One fan even called it 'gentrification':

Others are defending Swift's choice to include a marching band, pointing out that Beyoncé was not the first and won't be the last performer to include one;

"Madonna did the marching band first." The marching band on stage was actually first seen back in 1907, so, you know…not at Coachella last year…

Though, timing is everything. Taylor may have known that this would cause some smoke to breathe into the industry's air if she added the band TWO WEEKS after Homecoming hit Netflix.  *strokes beard*

We have to wonder: WWBS? (What would Beyoncé say?)

Others are pointing out that TayTay gets served a LOT of sh*t in the media, and that nothing good ever comes from comparing two powerful, successful women with VERY different musical styles.

Try telling the Beyhive that….we're still reading the Tweets though aren't we? They're gas.

*Sighs*
Beyoncé's Homecoming changed pop culture forever and ever Amen, so it's no wonder people can't seem to stop talking about it.

We're sure Taylor is doing her best to ignore the internet furore, or maybe she's delighted that her performance is now trending on Twitter?

Like we said; She's a genius.

Fans of Derry Girls, we’ve got some bad news for you. The Irish comedy was due to be released on Netflix on May 8, but it looks like fans will have to wait longer than expected.

A spokesperson confirmed that the show won’t be joining the streaming service until later in the summer.

There’s been a Derry Girls-shaped hole in our hearts since the last episode of series two aired in April so we are pretty gutted about this news.

The second instalment of the hilarious Irish series went by in the blink of an eye but we adored every minute.

The second series had many iconic moments including Gerry making sambos at the funeral and the gangs frantic journey to Belfast for the Take That concert.

We’ll just have to wait patiently for Netflix to add the hilarious Irish show and re-watch episodes of Friends for the time being.

Hollywood is notorious for it's lack of consideration for the importance of equal pay. Actresses have continuously lost out on wages to male co-stars who are contributing the exact same or less to the project than them.

Robert Pattinson has now weighed in on the gender pay gap in Hollywood, claiming that he'd work without pay if it meant securing great actresses. Um, we heart?

The actor signed a #MeToo 'behavioural contract' before signing onto a Netflix original project out later this year. The King also stars Lily Rose-Depp and Timothée Chalamet.

Most famously, Michelle Williams was paid EIGHT TIMES less than Mark Wahlberg for All the Money in the World, and earned just $1,000 for the reshoots. Bear in mind that Mark isn't exactly Oscars material, yet he was given $1.5 million.

The highest-paid actress of last year, Scarlett Johansson, made $198.5 million less than the highest-paid actor, George Clooney.

High-profile Times Up activist Jessica Chastain was given roughly $1.75 million for The Martian, while Matt Damon allegedly earned as much as $25 million. Wow.

Pattinson, who found fame after starring in Twilight, told The Sunday Times;

“If it’s a question of me being paid more and getting a worse actress, or me being paid less and getting a better actress, I’ll do it for fucking free." We stan a Times Up supporter.

He also divulged why he never speaks openly about his romantic life, saying;

"If you let people in, it devalues what love is," he says. The actor is currently dating Suki Waterhouse.

"If a stranger on the street asked you about your relationship, you’d think it extremely rude. If you put up a wall it ends up better."

We're guessing he keeps his cards close to his chest, love-wise, since the whole Kristen Stewart cheating scandal. He sounds like a sound feminist lad, one you'd bring home to your granny for sure,

Can you believe it's been two years since April 28, 2017? 

The day when mass chaos occurred in the Bahamas after Fyre Fest descended into disarray, with musical acts dropping out, no food and water and fake amenities similar to a refugee camp.

Marketed by the industry's most valuable influencers such as Hailey Baldwin and Kendall Jenner as the Coachella of the tropical islands, the festival organisers committed total fraud and lost thousands of dollars.

The upper class scandal led to a Hulu and Netflix documentary, GoFundMe pages set up for all the staff who were duped out of money in their home of the Bahamas, and arrests being made.

Tickets cost thousands of dollars and gained notoriety through the famous 'orange tile' advertising by famous models on Instagram such as Bella Hadid.

Let's just say it DEFINITELY was not what it was advertised, with glamorous rich folks receiving sad pieces of cheese on bread instead of gourmet meals, and had no place to lodge at all in the middle of a deserted island.

The festival organiser, Billy McFarland, 'fully postponed' the event after pretty much everyone had already arrived. Smart.

"After assessing the situation this morning and looking at best options for our guests, we cannot move forward as we hoped we could. At this time, we are working tirelessly to get flights scheduled and get all travelers home safely," they quoted at the time.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Deezhohn (@deezhohn) on

Ja Rule, a rapper who befriended Billy McFarland at the time and co-organised the event, assured attendees that Fyre Fest was "not a scam" and that he was heartbroken about the scenario. He faced his share of backlash, deservedly so.

He tweeted;  "I too was hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hood winked, lead astray!!!" Mmmmhmmm. McFarland was charged with wire fraud and sentenced to six years in prison, where he currently is still serving his time in Otisville

Where are they now, though? Let's start with good old Billy McFarland.

McFarland is sharing a prison with Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino. He was found guilty of defrauding investors of the festival out of a whopping $26 million in November 2018.

He plead guilty to two counts of wire fraud, and faces three years of supervised release when he completes his sentence. The 27-year-old issued an apology to People, saying;

"I am incredibly sorry for my collective actions and will right the wrongs I have delivered to my family, friends, partners, associates and, you, the general public," he said.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Jeff Urrea (@jeffurrea) on

"I've always sought – and dreamed – to accomplish incredible things by pushing the envelope to deliver for a common good, but I made many wrong and immature decisions along the way and I caused agony."

"As a result, I've lived every day in prison with pain, and I will continue to do so until I am able to make up for some of this harm through work and actions that society finds respectable."

The Hulu documentary claims that McFarland is teaching a music entrepreneurship class to fellow inmates of the Otisville Federal Correctional Facility in NYC.

While the rapper didn't take part in either documentary, he was heavily featured in both. Fair enough, considering he was Fyre's co-founder and worked very closely with McFarland.

The 42-year-old has remained seemingly in the clear since his partner went behind bars, famously defending himself as clueless on social media,

"I had an amazing vision to create a festival like NO OTHER! I would NEVER SCAM or FRAUD anyone what sense does that make?" he tweeted.  Nevertheless, he was subjected to multiple lawsuits due to his ties.

Ja Rule has since begun a new investment in an app called ICONN, a "celebrity entertainment book & concierge  service." Hmmm, we feel like we've heard this one before. "It's very different, but it's similar," he admitted.

Andy King, AKA The Team Player

Bless his wee soul. Poor Andy is now remembered as the key player who attempted to save the doomed festival through using any means necessary.

He quickly became an Internet sensation after the Netflix documentary aired, with McFarland asking him to "take one for the team" and perform oral sex on a customs official so they could get bottled water delivered.

He famously declared that he took a shower, rinsed his mouth with mouthwash and drove across town to do the deed. Thankfully, the situation didn't escalate to sexual coercion, but Andy is still revered nonetheless.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Andy King (@realandyking) on

"I just don't want to necessarily be known as the Blow Job Kind of the world," he said. Well, nowadays he's doing amazingly well considering his reputation. One might even call him a breakout star?

King admitted in a recent Netflix video that he was "completely blown away" (LOL) by the public response to the interview. "I am now a noun, a verb, an adjective…it's mind-blogging." 

The Billy Whisperer admitted to the L.A. Times he hasn't cut his ties with his imprisoned protégé; "No, I'm not done with him. I know- I'm Uncle Whackjob," he said.

"We come from a preppy background. Half my friends have sons his age. I didn't have somebody to mentor me at that age. He's not a horrible guy. He has hurt a lot of people. Will I probably go visit him someday? Yeah, I will probably. And maybe that's the closure I need."

The 57-year-old is still working as an event producer, and aided the start if a GoFundMe to help pay back all of the local Bahamian staff members.

Last but not least; Maryanne Rolle

Rolle was the caterer at the Exuma Point Resort in the tropical islands of the Bahamas, and lost her ENTIRE life savings to feed the staff of the festival.

Of course, anyone who watched the documentary had a huge amount of sympathy for her, and began a GoFundMe campaign to help her out.

It raised over $123,000 dollars and exceeded the goal, with many of the festival organisers offering donations.

Maryanne and her husband, Elvis Rolle, have found the attention highly difficult, and revealed in an interview that she has fallen ill due to the stress, "She can't cope with it all," Elvis told The National. "I hope she feels better soon."

As for the amazing GoFundMe campaign, he said, ""It means everything, it means we get something back from everything we put in. It is like God is watching over us."

So there you have it. Most of them are still embroiled in the law, but at least Maryanne got her savings back? We wish her well.

We’ve been waiting far too long for the third season of The Crown to return to Netflix and it looks like we’ll be waiting even longer than we hoped.

Fans of the show are going to have to wait another few months to see Olivia Colman, Tobias Menzies, Ben Daniels and Helena Bonham Carter take on the iconic roles of Britain’s Royal Family.

According to Deadline, the third season of The Crown will air in the second half of the year, which means we have to wait until after July to binge-watch the show.

Netflix commented: “We’re looking forward to a strong slate of global content in the second half of the year, including new seasons of some of our biggest series.”

It has been confirmed that the upcoming season will focus on Princess Margaret’s troubled love life, as it follows the breakdown of her marriage to Antony ‘Tony’ Armstrong-Jones'. We will also be introduced to Camilla Parker Bowles in season three.

There will also be a huge focus on the life of Prince Charles, including his relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles this season.

Call The Midwife’s Emerald Fennell will play Camilla Parker Bowles and Josh O’ Connor will play Prince Charles.

It is understood that season three will be set during the 1970s. The Duke of Windsor passed away in 1972, so we have a feeling his death will be a major storyline during season three.

There’s no doubt the next season of The Crown will be worth the wait.

The disappearance of Madeleine McCann is a case that gripped the nation since 2007.

The mystery surrounding the young girl’s disappearance is astonishing. Over £11 million has been spent on Madeleine’s missing person’s case so far.

Netflix is set to release an eight-part series about Madeline, who vanished while on holiday in Portugal's Praia de Luz in 2007.

The series is due to be released on Friday, March 15.

Madeleine’s case is one of the UK’s most high profile missing person cases in history.

Commenting on the series, Netflix revealed that the docuseries will go behind the headlines and will share unseen testimonies from Madeleine’s family, investigators and others.

“By blending new interviews with more than 40 contributors, 120 hours of interviews, archival news footage and reenactments, The Disappearance Of Madeleine McCann goes beyond the headlines and takes a unique look at the facts of the case as well as its impact on media standards around the world,” they stated.
