13 Reasons Why' premiere party canceled after Texas shooting
LOS ANGELES - Netflix canceled the premiere party for its second season of the teen drama "13 Reasons Why" because of a school shooting near Houston.
The streaming service announced the cancellation hours before the scheduled premiere and red carpet event, citing the Friday morning shooting at Santa Fe High School that left 10 people dead.
Despite the canceled premiere red carpet and party, the entire Season 2 is available on Netflix.
The first season of "13 Reasons Why" drew criticism for its graphic depiction of a teenager's suicide. The second season focuses on the aftermath of the girl's death, and it includes a storyline about a student's thwarted plans to shoot up a school dance. The student, who is heavily armed with a rifle and handguns, is talked out of the shooting by a classmate who helps him escape before police arrive.
Lovato has concert activities for mental health awareness
NEWARK, N.J. - On Demi Lovato's latest U.S. tour, she opened each show with "You Don't Do It For Me Anymore," an ode to shaking her addiction to substance abuse.
But while the song is inspiring, it's what happened before the show that seemed to matter most to her. Lovato, who says that she "thrives" with bipolar disorder, held what can be described as one-hour therapy sessions for a few hundred fans before she taking the stage.
"It's something that I'm passionate about, mental health, and raising the awareness and taking away the stigma away from it. So, if I can do that on tour then awesome," Lovato said in an interview with The Associated Press.
