Coldplay are a British rock band formed in 1996 by lead vocalist and keyboardist Chris Martin and lead guitarist Jonny Buckland at University College London (UCL).After they formed under the name Pectoralz, Guy Berryman joined the group as bassist and they changed their name to Starfish. Will Champion joined as drummer and backing vocalist, completing the lineup.
Coldplay have won 85 awards from 252 nominations throughout their career, including one American Music Awards,nine Brit Awards, six MTV Video Music Awards, seven MTV Europe Music Awards and seven Grammy Awards from 32 nominations. They have sold more than 90 million records worldwide, making them one of the world’s bestselling music artists. In December 2009, Rolling Stone readers voted the group the fourth-best artist of the 2000s.
It’s hard to realise the enormity of history when we’re in the moment when it’s happening, but there was a neat little twist to Serena Williams’ record-breaking 23rd Grand Slam singles title of the Open era. For the presentation ceremony, she donned some specially-made shoes with a big number – 23 – on them made by her clothing supplier. But the shoes aren’t new – they were made five months ago in expectation that the younger Williams would win her 23rd major at the US Open. She seemed a shoo-in to break Steffi Graf’s record of 22 at Flushing Meadows, but lost to Karolina Pliskova in the semifinals. “Those shoes have a lot of air miles on them, they’re like platinum members,” she said. “They flew all the way to the [US] Open and all the way here. I had no idea it was happening, so I guess they’ve been waiting for this moment for a while.”
The Mayor, ABC’s new sitcom which won our vote for the best new series of the fall, centers on Brandon Michael Hall as a young rapper who stages a mayoral campaign as a stunt…but then is shocked to learn he’s actually elected. Fortunately, he has his former-classmate-turned-chief-of-staff Valentina (Lea Michele) to guide him, which means lots of political jargon for the Glee and Scream Queens star as her character is “obsessed with politics.”
“Right now with everything going on in the world, I think watching the news sometimes is incredibly difficult,” Lea Michele recently told E! News, “but I’ve definitely had to brush up on my legal jargon…and it’s been a lot of fun.”
And Michele, 31, admitted to using some of her dialogue on The Mayor to her advantage in her everyday conversations, saying, “You learn a couple of key facts and then insert them when necessary to make yourself seem smarter than you actually are!”
But funnily enough, Michele’s new role as Val is actually a lot closer to what she wanted to be than Glee’s Rachel Berry when she was growing up.
“I wanted to be a lawyer growing up,” Michele revealed. “I was on the debate team. I was varsity debate…major champion, I won lots of awards for it, and I was like, maybe this is what I want do to, but then I kept doing this, which is definitely what I think I should be doing!”
And being huge fans of Glee, Scream Queens and now The Mayor, we’re not going to debate her on that.

The Mayor premieres Tuesday, Oct. 3 at 9:30 p.m. on ABC.
Lovely blog! Do you have any domestic life hcs for Cynthia, Riley and N with an s/o?
Thank you so much! And you bet I do.
♡ Cynthia keeps her home rather orderly. Or at least, she tries to. She has no problems cleaning up after herself, and doesn’t mind tidying up after her s/o. But when she’s immersed in research, it’s a very different story. There are papers everywhere, you’ll be finding pens where they shouldn’t be (really? the shower? How does that even work?), and you’ll trip over at least one stack of books left in the middle of the living room floor.
♡ Speaking of research, she does a lot of it. She spends a lot of nights up late, fully immersed in her work. Sometimes you can just walk by her and place a kiss on her head and remind her that she needs to get some rest. Other times, its best to sit yourself on her lap/pull her onto yours, and just bother her until she realizes she’s not going to get any more work done.
♡ A pretty decent cook, but she has a few dishes that are just absolute perfection. She always tries to teach you how to make them yourself for those nights when she’s off at the league or dealing with some important business. But you keep insisting that no matter what you do it doesn’t turn out right, and that clearly she’s using some kind of magic to make it work. She sees through your ploy, but plays along anyway.
♡ Her home is full of rare items she found in ruins, but also random little knickknacks she gets on her travels. The fact that a thousand year old mosaic is displayed right next to a tacky bobblehead of an Oshawott playing the ukulele never gets old.
♡ Where’s her bed? Oh. Right underneath what the locals call “Pillow Hell”. She sleeps with way too many pillows, and even her blankets are fluffy and way too soft. You have to wonder how she even gets up in the morning, but you’re thankful she does, because someone has to pull you out of the literal cloud you’re sleeping on.
Here’s Major Harrier, a champion of earth that’s summoned by 5 teens with power rings!
Unfortunately that was back in the 90′s. One of the Teens has died since then, one’s institutionalized, one’s fighting a drug habit and the rest have had a pretty rough life as well.
Something has come up many years later and they need to summon the Major again to protect earth! The state of the ring bearers have torn apart the assembly of Major Harrier and he explodes into reality as a ragged mess. He can’t properly control his powers, he has shocks of amnesia, his energy blasts temporarily blind him, and flying gives him severe migraines.
