Shamir, "In for the Kill"
Post-gender pop performer Shamir follows up on previous hits "On the Regular" and "Call It Off" with an out-of-this-world music video for his latest single, "In for the Kill." Flying UFOs over the countryside in an effort to pursue art? It's all in a day's work for the fabulous Shamir.

6_0The Emmys
If you love television, then it stands to reason that you'll love the 67th Emmy Awards, the annual ceremony honoring television's best and brightest.

Henson at the event, which this year is hosted by comedian Andy Samberg. Watch it Sunday, 8 p.m. Eastern on Fox.

Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street
Out Nightmare on Elm Street 2 star Mark Patton takes a deep dive into the queer subtext of the horror classic -- and the real-life nightmare he endured as a gay actor working in the homophobic realm of 1980s Hollywood -- in his upcoming documentary Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street. A Kickstarter campaign is currently under way to offset some of the final costs associated with producing the film, and several fabulous rewards are available for those who support the project. Sink your claws into the video below.


The Lyons' pride kicks off another season of drama and daddy issues Wednesday, picking up three months after the first season's cliffhanger, which ended with Lucious fuming in prison. The new season opens with queen Cookie throwing the ultimate shade as she stages a star-studded #FreeLucious concert while simultaneously plotting a hostile takeover of Empire.

Scream Queens
Hitmaker Ryan Murphy has done it again. His new Fox show, Scream Queens, is a hilarious and scathing camp comedy about a college sorority under siege from a masked killer. None other than scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis is the dean of the campus, a Sue Sylvester-like character who makes it her task to take down the sorority president, an amazingly over-the-top queen bee Emma Roberts. The cast is rounded out by her minions Abigail Breslin and Ariana Grande (they are all named Chanel), frat boys Glen Powell and Nick Jonas, and a motley crew of rush candidates including Lea Michele, Skyler Samuels, and Keke Palmer. Watch the two-hour season premiere Tuesday, 8 p.m., on Fox.

The video is an acid trip view of the inner workings of London, with Murphy strutting in construction garb through streets, parking lots, the Underground, and, finally, a church that makes her literally drop to her knees.\n" photo_credit=""]

The Muppets
Kermit and the whole glorious gang are back, but the two words that have gays screaming, "YAAAAS!" as we count down the minutes to the Tuesday premiere on ABC: Miss Piggy!

Black Mass
Johnny Depp loves to look vampiric. He succeeds in doing so again in his latest project, Black Mass, in which he portrays the pale, dead-eyed gangster Whitey Bulger, the real-life head of the Winter Hill Gang, a Boston Irish mob group. The film shows how Bulger rose to infamy as a murderer and drug lord by secretly becoming an informant for the FBI in the 1970s, garnering its protection as well as the aegis of his brother, a powerful politician, played here by Benedict Cumberbatch. See Black Mass in theaters this weekend.
