4. MUSIC: Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection, Katy Perry
A half-dozen smash singles later, Katy Perry releases a deluxe version of her blockbuster album (out March 26) that includes her latest hit, “Part of Me,” a new version of “E.T.” featuring Kanye West, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” featuring Missy Elliott, a moving acoustic version of “The One That Got Away,” and a seven-minute Tommie Sunshine megamix featuring all six number 1 hits.
3. FESTIVAL: Fusion
Precious director Lee Daniels will present Noah's Arc creator Patrik-Ian Polk with the prestigious Fusion Achievement Award at the ninth annual Los Angeles LGBT People of Color Film Festival. Other highlights in this year's lineup include the world premiere of Polk's latest film, The Skinny, and a sing-along to the semi-classic 1976 musical Car Wash (above). Fusion begins today and runs through March 24. For more information, go to Outfest.org/Fusion.
2. TV: Mad Men
Even with Bryan Batt's closeted Sal character nowhere in sight, LGBT viewers will still tune into the Madison Avenue–set drama for the richly nuanced performances of Jon Hamm, Christina Hendricks, and Elisabeth Moss as Don, Joan, and Peggy, respectively, as they navigate the changing mores of the tumultuous 1960s. After an absence of 17 months, Matthew Weiner's riveting drama begins its fifth season on AMC March 25.
