1. Supercon Wrap-Up
The first ever Raleigh Supercon is in the books, wrapping on Sunday! It was, coincidentally, my first "con" of any kind and I had a blast! Just in case you missed it (or want to read it again, I won't judge), check out a story I wrote on meeting Gaten Matarazzo from Stranger Things at Supercon. it's definitely worth the read! Supercon is coming back in August 2018 and I'm already looking forward to it. Especially if organizers can bring back Gaten and/or some of the other cast members from the show!

Comedian/host, Steve Harvey, went too far with some comments he made on his radio show this week.

Katy Perry is officially IN as a judge on ABC's American Idol reboot. There was quite a bit of speculation in recent days before the network made it official at its annual Upfront presentation. Perry is no stranger to the show, having been a guest judge during Season Nine. I personally like the pick as I know Perry is extremely talented and I'm sure she has the ability to discover new talent. We'll see how it goes!
