Sarah Paulson was put through the wringer on FX’s second installment of American Horror Story: Asylum, where she played Lana Winters, a 1950s-era lesbian journalist determined to expose the wrongdoings inside a mental institution. What she doesn’t count on is that the facility’s sadistic matron, Jessica Lange’s Sister Jude, uses Lana’s sexual orientation against her, torturing the intrepid reporter with electroshock therapy. Other horrific traumas follow, from aversion conversion therapy to rape.
While we wait for the 4th season of American Horror Story, I thought it would be the perfect time for us to re-watch the previous season “The Coven” which features a stunning cast who delivered beyond amazing performances.

R&B songstress K. Michelle has taken her music and her artistry to new heights with the premiere of “The Rebellious Soul Musical” which was directed by the talented actor and producer Idris Elba. It sees finds her bringing some of the tracks off her debut album of the same name to life. In the same vein as her former mentor R.Kelly with his Trapped In A Closet series: “When looking at Trapped in the Closet- it was an amazing creative idea, and no one can take away what a genius he is – but I wanted to step it up with texture and how this is shot – so clean. They didn’t want it to look bootleg or anything. I say it’s better than Trapped in the Closet.”
