Second Take: Questions surround release of Harper Lee’s second novel

Make way Mary Higgins Clark, there’s a new queen of suspense in town and her name is Harper Lee. While 88-year-old Lee doesn’t write suspense-thriller mysteries, she still managed the plot twist of her career with the announcement of her second book release 55 years after her first, “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Before there were TLC television shows like “Here Comes Honey Boo,” “Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta” and “Welcome to Myrtle Manor” Americans got a glimpse of Southern life in Lee’s beloved 1960 Pulitzer-Prize-winning classic “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Yet, before she published her famed novel, she wrote a sequel to “To Kill a Mocking Bird” titled “Go Set a Watchman” in the 1950s, which remained unpublished until now.

Second Take: Katy Perry lives up to hype in Super Bowl halftime show

Katy Perry belted out “Roar,” finishing with a full-bodied growl while standing in a flaming mini-dress on top of a 15-foot-tall robotic tiger. Perry’s 15-minute Super Bowl XLIX halftime show included fan-favorites such as “Dark Horse,” “Kissed a Girl” and “Firework“ and featured guests Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliot who sang “Lose Control” and “Work It.” The representation of three musical genres in combination with impressive visual effects set this year’s Super Bowl halftime apart as a full show rather than just a snooze-fest concert.
