Gwen Stefani, "Used to Love You"
Our favorite Voice coach gets raw and emotional in her new single, which will be part of her much-anticipated third album. As any good gossip follower knows, Gwen recently separated from her husband of 13 years, Bush front man Gavin Rossdale, and you can feel her hurt and anger in the Alanis-esque video for "Used to Love You." We're cheering for you, Gwen!

Suffragette
The fight for women's right to vote gets long-overdue screen time in Suffragette. The movie stars Carey Mulligan as Maud Watts, a mother, wife, and laundress who finds herself swept up in the women's suffrage movement of early-20th-century Britain. She befriends key members of this movement, among them Edith Ellyn (Helena Bonham Carter) and legendary activist Emmeline Pankhurst, played here in an electric call-to-arms scene by Meryl Streep. In addition to Mulligan's singular performance as a person who sacrifices nearly everything for her rights, the film has been lauded for shining a spotlight on a struggle that, shockingly, is still ongoing. Women in Saudi Arabia only obtained the right to vote this year, and they still have no voice in Vatican City. Be outraged and watch the trailer of Suffragette, which is out in limited release this weekend, below.

Hush Up Sweet Charlotte
Get ready for Halloween with a delightfully campy mix of horror and humor in Hush Up Sweet Charlotte, writer-director Billy Clift's send-up of the 1964 Bette Davis thriller Hush ... Hush, Sweet Charlotte. It stars drag divas Matthew Martin and Jeffery Roberson (a.k.a. Varla Jean Merman), John Waters mainstay Mink Stole, and David Millbern, with cameos by past RuPaul's Drag Race contestants Honey Mahogany and Raja, and the show's pit crew hunk Miles Davis Moody. Martin and Roberson will perform onstage prior to the film's screening Wednesday at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco. The entertainment starts at 7:30 p.m. (a pre-show VIP reception is sold out). Get your tickets here and watch the movie's trailer below.

Oprah's Master Class: Ellen DeGeneres
Ellen DeGeneres will appear on Oprah's Master Class to discuss her life and career. A new teaser, which can be viewed below, reveals that a key topic of this conversation is coming out. "I certainly didn't ever that I was going to come out. Period," the lesbian comedian and talk show host reveals. "And I didn't think I'd be coming out on a show, ever." Find out more about her life-changing (and world-changing) decision Sunday at 8 p.m. Eastern on OWN.

Supergirl
Greg Berlanti, the gay uber-producer who brought us Arrow and The Flash, offers female (super) empowerment with Supergirl. The title character, also drawn from the DC Comics universe, is Superman's cousin and has just begun to embrace her powers. When not saving the world, she's Kara Danvers, who works for a multimedia company, and she has a sister, Alex, a scientist involved in top-secret operations. Melissa Benoist stars as Supergirl/Kara, with Chyler Leigh as Alex. The series premieres Monday at 8:30 p.m./7:30 Central on CBS. Watch a preview below.

Adele, "Hello"
Adele has shared the video for "Hello," the sublime first single off her upcoming album 25, which we now know will be available November 20. "Hello" is the singer's first new music in three years since the release of 2012's James Bond theme song, "Skyfall." In a BBC interview Thursday, the singer described the ballad as "very intimate." The video's stark images, matched with that voice, gave us shivers. Adele knocks it out of the park again.
