Obsessed fans of Popstar! magazine and its new streaming service Popstar! TV are in for a huge treat. The mega-successful young adult brand has partnered with the Emmy-nominated digital series Tainted Dreams and will be bringing the soap opera to its legions of celebrity and pop culture fanatics.
Seasons one and two of the soapy drama series, which originally debuted on Amazon Prime in 2016, will begin streaming on Popstar! TV today.
