Here’s a recap of a few top stories in entertainment and pop-culture news in your Sunday Paper!
“We are all in this together!” At least that’s what the East High Wildcats proclaimed 10 years ago. Disney Channel has announced a nation-wide casting search for High School Musical 4 which follows up the threequel, the last one being High School Musical 3: Senior Year released in theaters back in 2008.
The new movie is set to have an all new cast and the legendary choreographer Kenny Ortega has been replaced with Jeffrey Hornaday. Hornaday is known from his work in Disney’s Teen Beach Movie starring Ross Lynch and Maia Mitchell. Hornaday will now choreograph and direct HSM 4 which is set to follow the East High Wildcats and incorporate their rivals the West High Knights.
It all started with two high schoolers meeting at a ski lodge and transformed to a multimillion dollar franchise and a household name. We can’t wait to see who lands the new leading roles and how they will continue the HSM story!
He did it! After six Academy Award Nominations Leonardo Di’Caprio has finally taken home an Oscar.

Lady Gaga also had a huge night at the Oscars with her emotional performance of “Til It Happens to You”. Vice President Joe Biden introduced the American Horror Story actress who sat behind a piano with a single spotlight.
The song was written for the documentary The Hunting Ground – a documentary that dives into sexual assaults on college campuses across the nation. Gaga gave a chilling performance and had survivors of sexual assaults join her on stage with words of empowerment written on their arms.
