It’s Prince Day to celebrate the release of ‘Purple Rain’

9:44 AMToday at The Undefeated, we celebrate the life and times of Prince. It’s the anniversary of the release of the film Purple Rain, so if you notice something a little different on the site, that’s the feeling of love coming through your screen.

On Monday night, the Democratic National Convention got the first lady. On Tuesday, it was Mr. Clinton. On Thursday, it’ll be Mrs. Clinton. But on Wednesday night, the convention will get the sitting president of the United States. That’s the thing about one party occupying the White House for the better part of a decade. Everyone you bring out to speak at your events, by default, feels like more of a winner, because, well, at the highest level, they are. President Barack Obama is probably the best speaker of them all, too, in fact. ABC News’ Serena Marshall previews what to expect.

Madam President has a great ring to it. But it doesn’t mean that magically the glass ceiling (or cliff) is suddenly going to disappear in American electoral politics. Not remotely. What it will likely mean is that more grizzled old men will dig in their heels and act like they’re the only ones who know what’s good for the nation, since, you know, they’ve been the ones ruling it since forever. FiveThirtyEight’s Christine Laskowski explores how this country is so behind the rest of the world in this regard.

The MTV Video Music Awards are my favorite. Not because typically there’s some goofy prank or controversy that ends up dominating the headlines, but it’s typically just the most real of the shows, with artists I’ve actually heard of and whose music I genuinely enjoy. On Tuesday, the nominees for the VMAs were announced and there was one shocking omission: Your girl Taylor Swift was nowhere to be found. Not a single nod for anything. ABC’s Andrea Dresdale has the full list. Yes, Beyonce has the most, folks.

When Amar’e Stoudemire first came into the league, I’d never seen anything like him. He was a big man who didn’t play like a five, could run the floor and dunk on anybody if you got in the way. For a good stretch there, he and Steve Nash as a combo with the Phoenix Suns was as exciting as the NBA had ever been. But his body never truly cooperated with him, and various knee problems took the bounce that he once had away from him. On Tuesday, he retired as a member of the New York Knicks, but still might play overseas. ESPN’s Ian Begley reports.

Everyone you bring out to speak at your events, by default, feels like more of a winner, because, well, at the highest level, they are. President Barack Obama is probably the best speaker of them all, too, in fact. ABC News’ Serena Marshall previews what to expect.

Madam President has a great ring to it. But it doesn’t mean that magically the glass ceiling (or cliff) is suddenly going to disappear in American electoral politics. Not remotely. What it will likely mean is that more grizzled old men will dig in their heels and act like they’re the only ones who know what’s good for the nation, since, you know, they’ve been the ones ruling it since forever. FiveThirtyEight’s Christine Laskowski explores how this country is so behind the rest of the world in this regard.

The MTV Video Music Awards are my favorite. Not because typically there’s some goofy prank or controversy that ends up dominating the headlines, but it’s typically just the most real of the shows, with artists I’ve actually heard of and whose music I genuinely enjoy. On Tuesday, the nominees for the VMAs were announced and there was one shocking omission: Your girl Taylor Swift was nowhere to be found. Not a single nod for anything. ABC’s Andrea Dresdale has the full list. Yes, Beyonce has the most, folks.

When Amar’e Stoudemire first came into the league, I’d never seen anything like him. He was a big man who didn’t play like a five, could run the floor and dunk on anybody if you got in the way. For a good stretch there, he and Steve Nash as a combo with the Phoenix Suns was as exciting as the NBA had ever been. But his body never truly cooperated with him, and various knee problems took the bounce that he once had away from him. On Tuesday, he retired as a member of the New York Knicks, but still might play overseas. ESPN’s Ian Begley reports.

Get ready for a deluge of pop culture

9:44 AMToday at The Undefeated, we celebrate the life and times of Prince. It’s the anniversary of the release of the film Purple Rain, so if you notice something a little different on the site, that’s the feeling of love coming through your screen.

On Monday night, the Democratic National Convention got the first lady. On Tuesday, it was Mr. Clinton. On Thursday, it’ll be Mrs. Clinton. But on Wednesday night, the convention will get the sitting president of the United States. That’s the thing about one party occupying the White House for the better part of a decade.
