Debbie Gibson will Appear in the Musical Episode of ‘Lucifer’
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that singer Debbie Gibson will be joining the cast of Lucifer for their special musical episode titled “Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam.”
Born in Brooklyn, New York, Gibson grew up in the suburb of Merrick on Long Island. She exhibited a talent for music early on and studied piano under famed American pianist Morton Estrin. By the time she was a teenager, she was writing her own songs and when one of her demos found its way into the hands of an executive at Atlantic records, her career was on its way.
She first rose to fame in the late 80s with hits like “Foolish Beat,” “Shake Your Love,” and the classic “Lost in Your Eyes” from her Electric Youth album.
While plot details are still being withheld on the episode–we don’t know how or why the cast will be breaking into song–Gibson will reportedly play hovering, helicopter mom Shelly Bitner who keeps her song JJ firmly under her thumb at all times, and YES, she will be singing in the episode, as well.
It will be interesting to see exactly how this all plays out, and we can’t wait to see Gibson–who has also appeared on Broadway–will interact with series stars Tom Ellis, D.B. Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Lauren German, and Rachael Harris. Harris’s character of psychiatrist Linda Martin would certainly be a good fit, perhaps as JJ’s therapist?
Season five of Lucifer, which will be broken into two parts, is shaping up to be one for the books with the announcement of Gibson joining the musical episode just days after we found that actor Dennis Haysbert would be joining the cast for season five as God.

Watch ‘Conjuring’ Star Vera Farmiga Nail Slipknot’s Demon Voice in ‘Duality’ Cover
Vera Farmiga, who has starred in three Conjuring movies, has a good idea of how a demon should sound. Recently, she sang Slipknot’s Duality at a Rock Academy show in Kingston, New York. She impressively matched Corey Taylor growl for growl.
Prior to singing Duality, Farmiga told the audience, “I’ll tell you one thing: This music program is one thing we can’t get enough of. We really do have the time of our lives.”
Watch the cover below – she starts singing a little after the 1 minute mark.
During the performance of Duality, Renn Hawkey (her husband) played the keyboards. Later in the show, the couple switched roles, with Farmiga playing the keyboards as Hawkey sang The Killing Moon by Echo & The Bunnymen.
Farmiga posted videos of both the Slipknot and Echo & The Bunnymen covers on her Instagram page. She also praised the Rock Academy, saying, “Best. Music. School. On. The. Planet. Enroll your kids now. And why let them have all the fun?! Enroll yourselves! Come learn. Come grow. Come play. Come have so much fun.”
Ghostface Stars in Scream VI’s ‘Still Alive’ Music Video
Scream VI is right around the corner and in the latest music video Demi Lovato takes on Ghostface. It isn’t what we were expecting to see from the soundtrack but Still Alive is still a nice addition the Scream VI soundtrack.
It does make me miss the old Scream soundtracks. The soundtracks for Scream 2 and Scream 3 were really great and full of alternative rock picks. Nowadays, soundtracks are sadly devoid of those kinds of picks.
The film stars Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, Jenna Ortega, Courteney Cox, Dermot Mulroney, Samara Weaving, Tony Revolori, Jack Champion, Liana Liberato, Devyn Nekoda, Josh Segarra, and Henry Czerny.
The synopsis for Scream VI goes like this:
Four survivors of the original Ghostface killings attempt to leave Woodsboro behind for a fresh start.
‘Joker: Folie à Deux’ Shares First Image of Lady Gaga With Joaquin Phoenix
The first image of the sequel to Joker shares a first look at its two stars. Both Lady Gaga and Joaquin Phoenix are featured in the first lovely image from Todd Phillips’ Joker: Folie à Deux.
The term Folie à Deux means shared “shared delusional disorder”. We are sure that this will be something thoroughly explored in the sequel between these two.
The synopsis for Joker went like this:
Forever alone in a crowd, failed comedian Arthur Fleck seeks connection as he walks the streets of Gotham City. Arthur wears two masks — the one he paints for his day job as a clown, and the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel like he’s part of the world around him. Isolated, bullied and disregarded by society, Fleck begins a slow descent into madness as he transforms into the criminal mastermind known as the Joker.
