MTV’s Scream The TV Series 2 Hour Halloween Special Hits MTV Tonight

Disclaimer: If you have yet to finished season 2 of Scream on MTV/Netflix this post will spoil the end of it, and so will the Halloween special.

Well now that we got rid of the squares who HAVEN’T finished season 2 we can fangirl/boy/cheer for tonight’s Halloween special.

Image result for scream tv series happy GIF

According to the description on MTV, the 2 hour long ‘episode’ will take place eight months after Kieran (played by Amadeus Serafini also I warned you this would be spoiler) is arrested and Emma is having trouble dealing with it all, like usual.
Meanwhile my babies, “Noah and Stavo have combined forces to create a best-selling graphic novel based on the Kieran Wilcox murders and Audrey is in a new relationship.”

The group of Lakewood survivors make the smart choice to stay on island which in similarity to Lakewood has a lot of murder history. Rumours of an appearance of Brandon James have surfaced among fans and I’m excited. Can we also have a replay of crazy Brooke? The special debuts tonight at 9pm on MTV (hopefully hitting Netflix the following day), you can tweet along, and play my Scream Drinking Game!


#MusicMonday: Artist Of The Week

ARTIST OF THE WEEK: Singer/Rapper Tori Deal

I always have to give credit to female rappers with skill, the music industry, like most industries can be so hard for women so I give credit where credit it do. Lil Kim, Foxxy Brown, Nicki Minaj, Lil Debbie, I see y’all.Image result for tori deal This week’s AOTW is making a name for herself.

At just 23 years old, New York’s Tori Deal has starred on a hit MTV show for the fourth season of Are You The One , racked up close to 20 thousand followers on Twitter and recently dropped a brand new EP on iTunes.

During Tori’s time on MTV she met P.Muna whom she has recorded a few tracks with since the show, and nabbed the crown from cast mate Gio in a just-for-fun rap battle on the show. The up and coming rapper melds together sick beats, and clever lyrics to create a female empowered sound.

With tracks such as ‘Whats My Name?’, ‘Chance“,”Feeling Free’,the upcoming video for ‘F**k Boy’ and her new EP 37 hitting iTunes this past month I think we’ll be hearing a lot from Tori Deal.

Be sure to follow Tori on Twitter and, Instagram. To improve you playlists, and to cop her new EP on iTunes click here

Twitter Talks: Ariana VS Taylor, Perrie Exposes Zayn, And All That Pop Princess Tea

Twitter has been blowing up today with trending topics of tea in the pop music world and people are very opinionated on the subjects.

First up, the unwarranted #TaylorVsAriana tag

Image result for ari vs taylorNo one is really sure why this tag came to be but T-Swift fans, and Arinators went NUTS. While some remained neutral and said the made up feud was silly and that both are very talented, others did not. Bringing up Taylor’s beef with Kanye, and comparing the vocals between the two women.

Others used it as an outlet to get more retweets and likes on a tweet with “RT for Ariana, Like for Taylor!”. The whole thing seems pretty silly, and I’m hoping one of the two will speak on the topic and put it to rest.

THE POP TEA DID NOT STOP THERE Y’ALL. Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards made the trending topis with #PerrieExposesZayn. Twitter was surely not on Edwards’ side calling it a ‘pathetic cry for attention’ and ‘sad’ as rumours re-circulated that the two UK popstars ended their relationship due to infidelity on Zayn’s side.

Image result for perrie expose zayn
I wonder what Gigi will have to say about all this…

But why were there less tweets about Drake and Rihanna’s rumored split? There are certainly some theories out there about it…

  • 1/2pound ground turkey (or tofu)
  • 1/2teaspoon dried oregano
  • kosher salt and black pepper

    2. Shape the dough into a large oval and place on an oiled baking sheet. Top with the turkey mixture, red peppers, and Feta and bake until golden, 30 to 35 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.

#CinemaSunday: Blair Witch (2016)


FALL IS HERE! ALL OF THE HORROR! ALL OF THE TIME! I went with a new film this week to switch it up. I typically avoid films still in theaters for my reviews but I was surprised by this one. Let’s check out Blair Witch for an all new generation of horror fans, and the OGs too.



GENRE: Horror/Found Footage

Yes this is a remake, but hear me out okay.

After video footage of his sister who went missing when he was just 4 years old, James and his friends head out to the forest to find out what happened. Spooky forest (spoopy even!), found footage, you get the deal.



Much like the Evil Dead remake, I really enjoyed the film. A lot of jump scares, but that is to be expected from the genre. I found the characters to be a little less than exciting but there story arc stayed true to original film. There were a few good laughs ifyou havea dark sense of humor as well.

Who should watch this?

Larry David
My mom since she wouldn’t let me watch the original when I was young

Summer Sixteen: P.Muna x Nikki Sin Verse Contest Winner

Typically bloggers get involved with contests that force you to reblog, repost, follow, and share things but I always like to do things differently. Last month I teamed up with P.Muna, NY artist/rapper and MTV star to launch his 16 bar contest. Rappers had to drop 16 bars on Muna’s track ‘Demolition‘. Up for grabs was:

A recording session with P.Muna in NYC
A video & photo shoot with P.Muna
P.Muna x Nikki Sin swag designed by me

So who demolished the track? Albany man Mike Mitch y’all! The artist is the proud winner of all those dope prizes, and the very first contest on my site! I can’t WAIT to see what these two create for this track but I am certain it will be nothing short of dope.

Give your speakers some love with his winning submission: here
96' Shang Tsung

#FitnessFriday: Breakfast Stuffed Green Peppers

Image result for green pepper stuffed with egg whites
What You Need:

2 Green Peppers
Egg Whites
Goat Cheese
Salt & Pepper

(whatever veggies you desire!)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees; Cut the top off the pepper(s), carve out the inside of the peppers (like a pumpkin but not really) then place the remaining ingredients inside of the pepper. Bake peppers for 8-10 minutes. Top with salt, pepper, and basil if you’re feeling fancy.


#TBT: The Man, The Legend. Justin Bobby.

Image result for the princes of malibu TV show GIF


Ok, Audrina has moved waaaaay on by now but during her time on the reality series she had one of the show’s best OTPs with JB.

Image result for justin bobby


While it may not be his real name Justin Bobby was the show’s resident bad boy (with great hair.) who swept Audrina off her feet, and had her crying once per episode.

JB is now living a reality TV free life as a hairstylist, but will remain in MTV history and I assume MCM for Jessi Cruikshank?

#TMITuesday: 10 Questions with Model & Social Media Star Tana Lea

From her unapologetic stoner posts, to her head to to tatted 10/10 bod this week’s #TMITuesday is  the embodiment of the fire emoji.I sat down to ask model Tana Lea about her social media, MTV star boyfriend, and of course chat about her budding modelling career.


1. You’re a big social media fan, what is your favourite app to use to connect with fans?

I’m an Insta hoe! Instagram for sure, I’m just loyal to them in general….they are the only social media app that hasn’t banned me at some point. (Knock on wood).

2. What would you say is your “theme song”?


3. Ultimately what is your modelling goal?


I’m not really sure, I’d love to get some magazine covers or be featured! I’ve yet to be printed anywhere, which now this totally tests my credibility for the next statement but…..I’d like to get more into the mentoring side of being an Insta-hoe. What chick doesn’t want to be Instagram famous these days? Image result for thetanalea instagramNot to toot my own horn but I literally moved from the middle of no where, pulled my tits out a few times on Snapchat and started slaying my social media. I’d love to show other girls how to be confident or even fake confident to get what you want and do everything for you.


4. You make your love for weed no secret, what are your views regarding the ongoing battles to legalize marijuana in the remaining states/Canada?

Absolutely loyal to my friend Mary Jane. As someone who suffers from PTSD, and depression I can tell you marijuana has gotten me out of some dark places. I think that if regulated and of course taxed by the government the chronic could be a great thing! 


5. You and your boyfriend Tyler Pratt of MTV’s Are You The One are adorable on Instagram/Twitter; How did the two of you meet? Had you seen him on the show prior to meeting him?

Awe thanks! I like to think we are cute he thinks it’s annoying when I’m constantly snapping in his face but when he watches it later ends up dying because it’s straight comedy. We actually met via tinder, well kinda. I was in la one weekend before I actually moved there and he saw me on tinder and of course my handles and plugs are all in my bio. Well I don’t match with him so he slides in my Insta dm’s. Lol I still have the screenshot of the message! 💕 after a few days of texting we finally hung out. Lol my best friend #innerblackman Syrus Yarbrough of Real World Boston actually was showing me the city and mr Tyler Pratt decided to invite me over. I still remember the song we were singing in the car. image2.JPGThat damn nope song. Lol anyways Sy dropped me off at Tylers. I showed up with a bag of snacks from 7-11 (burritos, Funyuns, some type of sour candy and chocolate). Tyler and I watched Brave Heart and Gladiator and talked about how we weren’t going to have sex bc we were in love and then waited till the next morning  tmi I know but it’s funny bc I’m high! (its also TMITuesday so its okay!)


Lol no but another castmate from season 2 had already talked to me lol and picked me up the same way. So one of the first things I asked Tyler was if they all shared girls. Lol I honestly don’t like a lot of people from those shows. Not all of them but I will say there are some messy ones out there that try to get involved in people’s real life’s outside of MTV. Those broads, ugh. Anyways. So no I had never seen Tyler’s show.


6. Since today is #TMITuesday is there something you can tell the readers about you that they may not already know?


Lol I think the previous was lol well anyways. I’m from a tiny town population 3,881 when I moved away. I showed goats in 4-h, I ran for fair queen, I’m naturally blonde, I was a flight attendant for a day, I worked for the attorney general of Texas child support division, Texas a&m university biomedical engineering, Texas department of criminal justice Hamilton unit, umm lol sugar baby, Instagram model, Snapchat famous, Titty famous lol yeah that’s about all I got. I drink 3 gallons of whole milk a week.


7.  What can we find on your recently watched section of your Netflix account?

One tree hill. I get revisited by my childhood when I’m baked, I’m sure it has some correlation with my issues idk anyways. We’ve rewatched Big Love, Friday Night Lights, One Tree Hill, just started game of thrones, stranger things, that other show with coach Taylor from Friday night lights, lol all since we have been dating. Our perfect night is Apple TV, junk food, weed and each other of course! 


8. Okay back on to social media, what is your go-to Snapchat filter?

I have a LuMee case on my phone like Beyoncé so I just go with the Regular basic first filter. No dog ears or butterfly d*ck magnets. Image result for snapchat filter GIF


9. Describe your ideal photoshoot?

Some sort of fast food endorsement. Sahhhhhh I’ll eat yo cheeseburgers and wash a car in some shorts for some free food. #noshame


10. Whats next for you?

Marriage, baby. No I’m kidding, idk, Tyler and I really want our own reality show. We are filming with a local company for a little pilot soon so hopefully someone with the powers that be see us and think we are as cool as we do and wanna pay us to entertain. Hell hosting things for MTV. I personally think MTV should bring back the show fear! Fu*k I nearly sh*t my pants every episode. Lol back to the question. Yeah this year we have just really been focusing on helping each other grow in our social media. Ultimately we would like to be able to just live off of that. YouTube vlogs, cool sh*t. I mean I’m not going to go on and on and sound like a c*nt because we are so very grateful at where we are. Getting recognized is cool but getting recognized as a couple because people like our vibes is the coolest. Makes my heart happy. So yeah just working on making the world love us so we can watch more Netflix and smoke more weed!

I foresee big things for Tana & Tyler, and y’all can expect me to make my way onto their show😉

A Secret They Can’t Keep: Pretty Little Liars To End After 7 Seasons

Since the pilot was aired back 2010, teen drama-mystery ‘Pretty Little Liars’ has had all of us afraid of A, wondering who A is, thinking we know who it is and then going back to the drawing board of A.

Image result for pretty little liars
Today, producers and execs of the show announced that season 7 would be the final season of the show (which was always the plan btw).

Rumors of a wedding in season 7 are making PLL fan go nuts with guesses (COME ONNNNN ARIA AND EZRA!!!), and we are all really hoping for any and all loose ends to be tied up. Sadly this is not the only hit show who announced it’s final season this Summer; MTV hit series Teen Wolf will be ending this next season (I am still too sad to really talk about it tbh).

Fans are both relieved, and horrified regarding the huge PLL announcement via Twitter today:

I’m certain this is not the last we will see of the stars of the show either, here are my predictions:

Ashley Benson aka Hannah : Will continue her film career and veer away from television

Lucy Hale aka Aria: Will pursue her country music career further

Troian Bellasario aka Spencer: I’m hoping for more music from her, but she has been working on several films and some directing

Shay Mitchell aka Emily: Blogging and fashion

Whether or not you stayed true as a fan and watch past season 4, or not I suspect you will tune in for the final season.



Watch: Ariana Grande Ft Nicki Minaj ‘Side To Side’

Last night was the 2016 MTV VMAs and it was a pop lover’s dream! With an incredible performance from VMA/pop music queen Britney Spears (featuring G Eazy), the iconic Rihanna,  and of course the steamy slayage from Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. The two dropped the video for the latest track from them exclusively on www.guess.com within the last day in partnership with Vevo.

Additionally, Ari and rumored boyfriend (ok but we all know its an OTP)  rapper Mac Miller won for cutest couple at the awards in my eyes. The two first inspired dating rumours upon the release of their single together ‘The Way’ but Grande was dating Youtuber Jai Brooks at the time, and then of course rapper Big Sean, and possible that donut she licked. Joan Grande seems to have approved as she was sat next to Miller,all we need now is Nonna’s approval. Image result for ariana grande side  to side

As for the perfomance, this is not the first smash the musical mavens have been in cohorts with, Grande and Minaj have also done “Bang, Bang” and “Get On Your Knees” together.

Catch up with last night’ performance, and be sure to tweet me with your opinions on the new video



#CinemaSunday: The Neon Demon (2016)



But so is Fall, which in comparison is better in all aspects.

2. No guilty feeling for staying in on your day off thinking you wasted the sunny day indoors
3. It means horror Christmas aka Halloween is approaching.

This means a plethora of content for #CinemaSunday and lots of new titles on Kaley’s Netflix account (thanks babe xo). This week’s pick is delving into a more visual horror, and a lot more commercial than my typical choices which tend to fall into the B-movie category. So let’s dive into “The Neon Demon“:


GENRE: Horror/Thriller

Jesse played by Elle Fanning (Super 8), a determined 16 year old model moves to L.A to pursue her career. With no real place to call home, Jesse finds a terrible motel in Pasadena where she befriends the incredibly creepy manager played by Keanu Reeves (no,seriously.)
Anyways, this also where Jesse meets makeup artist Ruby played by Jena Malone (The Hunger Games, Saved) who thrusts the young model into the fashion industry alongside fellow models Sarah, and Gigi.
Eventually our lovely lead Jesse is discovered by a modelling agent played by my girl Christina Hendricks, and finds herself doing a shoot with a famed photographer, which doesn’t sit well with Sarah and Gigi.

Without giving anything away but providing pivotal plot details there are consequences for Jesse for her success, and the revenge is not delivered in a friendly way via the model foes.

FUN FACT: Elle Fanning is the younger sister of actress Dakota Fanning.

This film is visually stunning, the story line itself is a bit much for the length of the film but it was worth it.

#TMITuesday: 10 Questions with MTV’s Are You The One 4 Star/Artist Prosper Muna

The 4th series of MTV’s hit reality series Are You The One hit screens last night, and we met a new cast of hopefuls looking for love, and a shot at a HUGE cash prize. Within that cast of dating failures is this week’s feature, Prosper Muna. I sat down to talk to the AYTO babe about the show, his music and a bunch of other jazz, check it out:


1. Did you apply to AYTO for love, or money? Why? (Or both)

Hahaha, great question. Absolutely for love. Love is rare, anyone can make money😉.

2. When the “Insta Love/Love at First Sight” twist was first revealed, what was your initial reaction? Do you believe in love at first sight?

I was surprised! I definitely believe in love at first site. Most fellas won’t admit it but we all know it exists. It’s your intuition telling you that this girls aura feels right. The connection is instant.


3.Since today is #TMITuesday can you tell the readers something they may not know about you already?

Sure, I’m the first in my immediate family to graduate from high school and college. I have five other siblings and I’m a personal trainer


4. Speaking of music, can you tell me a little more about yours?

Absolutely, my music comes from the heart. Lyrically I spit a lot of knowledge but I also like to have fun. Just call me the hiphop “Al Green”. “L.F.B.D” (Looking for better days) is the movement. I have an e.p on sale now titled “Live long and Prosper” and I’m currently working on a follow up E.P titled “1991”.

5. Who would you say is your celebrity “perfect match”?

BEYONCE! But I’m not drinking lemonade anytime soon, lol.

7. What would you say is your “theme song”?

Hahaha, theme song? I’m a New Yorker so I definitely have to say Notorious B.I.G “Juicy”

8. What can we expect this season on Are You The One? I’m certain theres loads of drama and hookups!

Expect A LOT of drama and surprises. I wish I could say more but this is definitely going to be the best season ever.

Tweet me your match guesses at: @thenikkisin😉

9. Do you keep in touch with any of your castmates?

Definitely, I just caught up with a few of them at our cast party.

10. Whats next for you?

What’s next for me… working on finishing up my follow up E.P “1991” and going on tour. I have few acting and modeling opportunities that just landed my way. I’m just blessed and I thank God every day.
