Amy, directed by Asif Kapadia, chronicles the life and death of Amy Winehouse with never-before-seen footage of the late singer and interviews with those close to her.

The documentary, which first debuted at the Cannes Film Festival this month, looks at the darker parts of Winehouse’s battle with drug addiction and bulimia that followed the success of her second album Back to Black. Amy hits theaters July 10.


Artisan Grilled Chicken Sandwich


By Matthew Salzer

The new Artisan Grilled Chicken Sandwich puts McDonald’s on the all-natural bandwagon.

The chicken has no preservatives and is served on an artisan roll with veggies. The sandwich has a garlicky taste with hints of parsley and salt that delight the taste buds.

The sandwich alone has about 360 calories, making it a healthy lunch option that has nearly 200 calories less than a Big Mac.


Bad Blood

Big Machine Records

By Edson Valenzuela   

Taylor Swift’s video for her new single Bad Blood, featuring rapper Kendrick Lamar, is a stylish, action-packed, neo-noir extravaganza.  

Bursting at the seams with sleek martial arts choreography, copious celebrity cameos, and eye-candy effects, director Joseph Khan went above and beyond for a pop song aimed straight at Swift’s blood rival.

Her beef with fellow celebrity Katy Perry just got real.

Garden Grove, Calif.

 By Liz Monroy

Taiwanese-import 85 Degrees is a gluten-filled heaven that serves pastries, bread and coffee. As you walk around the bakery, the staff yells out orders for fresh-baked bread, and the warmth from the trays can be felt from behind the counter.
