This week's video is Boss by American singer Tinashe. Her full name is Tinashe Jorgensen Kachingwe and she's also a dancer, actress and model. Her dad is Zimbabwean and her mum is American and her name means "God is with us" in the Zimbabwean language Shona.

Tinashe started modelling and acting at only 3 years old. Her acting credits include Cora Unashamed and Two and a Half Men. As a teenager she was a member of girl group The Stunners, which was created by the American singer and actress Vitamin C.  The group released a few singles before splitting in 2011.

At 18 Tinashe created her own home studio and made 3 mixtapes In Case We Die (2012), Reverie (2012) and Black Water (2013) which she released through her website. Tinashe's first official single from In Case We Die was My High. She has released 7 singles from her mixtapes altogether, including Boss, Ecstasy and Vulnerable featuring rapper Travi$ Scott.

Tinashe signed to RCA Records in July 2012 and in January this year she released 2 On featuring rapper ScHoolboy Q, the first single from her upcoming debut album Aquarius.

Boss is from In Case We Die and it came out in August 2012. It was also used in American TV show Single Ladies. Tinashe made the music video herself. Aquarius will be released on 7th October 2014 (in the US).

Unexpected Girls Updates

Back in September I did a post about the American reality TV show Unexpected. You can read it here: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2018/09/unexpected.html

There have been two seasons (or series as we also call it in the UK) so far. There will be a 3rd one  featuring mums Lexus, Mckayla and Chloe (Chloe joined in Series 2). Emiley who joined in Season 2, says she isn't returning (see below) so. Laura (who also joined in S2) will also not be back (see below for more on that). Original cast member Lexus shared a casting call on her Instagram page in November, so it seems the company is looking for new girls due to give birth from March to June 2019. Check out the post here; https://www.instagram.com/p/BpzfLAjg8ek/

The gossip site Starcasm also reports that Unexpected's producers are casting for a new programme: https://starcasm.net/unexpected-producers-casting-pregnant-teens-from-same-high-school-or-tap-program-for-new-reality-series/

Unexpected

23/2/19: Updated with new links. :)

Unexpected (full title Unexpected: Teenage & Pregnant) is an American reality TV series following the lives of pregnant teenagers and their partners, and their journey into parenthood. It's the TLC version of the hit show 16 and Pregnant, which spawned the spin off Teen Mom. The first series/season was shown last year, and Series 2 was shown in the US this summer and has just started in the UK.

Season 1 followed  16 year old Lilly Bennett and her boyfriend James,  15 year old Lexus Scheller and boyfriend Shayden, 17, and Mckayla Adkins 16 and her boyfriend Caelan Morrison. Lilly gave birth to daughter Aaliyah Rose, Lexus had a daughter named Scarlett, and McKayla had son Timothy (Timmy).

All 3 of the girls' mums were also teen mothers, and in Lexus' case her grandmother was a teen mum too.


S2 catches up with Mckayla and Lexus, and introduce some new girls and their boyfriends. I'm focusing mainly on the girls here, like with my Te…

Top 10 True Movies

I like watching films based on true stories. I used to watch them occasionally as a child and teen but I started watching them more after the True Movies channels (True Movies 1 and True Movies 2) launched on Sky 11 years ago. It seems weird that it's been so long, lol. I usually watch the films on those channels (or True Entertainment) but I also sometimes watch them on Lifetime or other channels. (I think a lot of these are Lifetime original movies but we didn't get the Lifetime channel in the UK until late 2013).

I thought that today I'd share my Top 10 True Movies. :)


Trigger warning:

Most of the films are based on crimes (often murder or abuse) and I realise these are difficult subjects, so read with caution if you're sensitive to these type of films.
