Kanye West Throws Grammy In Toilet

Kanye West once again tweeted about his quest to acquire his masters but he didn’t stop there — he also tweeted out pages from his contract with Universal and posted a video of him peeing on a Grammy. Totally normal stuff.

Robert Pattinson seems to be better following his covid diagnosis — at least, I hope he is for Suki Waterhouse‘s sake. The couple were spotted making out in London.

-Meanwhile, Lizzo sent Cardi flowers following the news.

-People are really loving the upcoming Paris Hilton documentary, which will supposedly make us much more sympathetic to her.

-This is a great profile on Chris Rock, who talks about finishing Fargo in a pandemic, Jimmy Fallon‘s blackface impersonation of him, America’s summer of strife, and what happens when a landlord becomes president.

Chris Evans Laughs Off Dick Pic

Chris Evans recovered from his accidental dick pic reveal nicely by using the attention for good and urging people to vote.  He also addressed it in an interview with Tamron Hall today, saying “That’s called turning a frown upside down, Tamron. It was an interesting weekend. Full of lessons learned. A lot of teachable moments. Things happen and it’s embarrassing. You have to roll with the punches. I will say I have some pretty fantastic fans that came to my support.” I still think there’s a conversation to be had about whether a female celeb could survive an incident like this as unscathed as he did, but still, I’m glad he’s dealing with it with grace.

Cardi B is taking her “WAP” and walking away. She filed for divorce from husband Offset at a courthouse in Atlanta.

Madonna is set to co-write and direct her own biopic. Diablo Cody will co-write the script. (Interesting that her tweet about it downplays Cody’s involvement.)

Kim Kardashian West is going to to freeze her Instagram/Facebook accounts tomorrow to protest hate speech, which is probably going to have more impact than anything the platforms are doing.

Jared Padalecki‘s real-life wife has been cast to play his TV wife in CW’s Walker. I can see this happening more and more during covid. You don’t have to take the same safety precautions when shooting if the actors are living together.

John Boyega is stepping down as a brand ambassador for the British perfume and candle company Jo Malone after the brand reshot a video he created with a different actor for the Chinese market.

-In a new interview, Kendall Jenner said “I am a stoner, no one knows that, so that’s the first time I’ve ever really said anything out there.” Groundbreaking stuff.

-This is the best tweet I’ve seen about the JK Rowling mess: “JK Rowling is really out here policing gender identity when she literally identifies as a man to sell more books.?!!!!!!?!)!!”

-Screening Tenet might have actually harmed movie theatres in the long run, as they have a stronger hand when negotiating rent if they remained closed.

John Boyega Takes the Gloves Off

-My god, this John Boyega interview in British GQ is a thrilling read. He speaks frankly about his Star Wars experience, particularly The Last Jedi: “What I would say to Disney is do not bring out a Black character, market them to be much more important in the franchise than they are and then have them pushed to the side. It’s not good. I’ll say it straight up…Like, you guys knew what to do with Daisy Ridley, you knew what to do with Adam Driver. You knew what to do with these other people, but when it came to Kelly Marie Tran, when it came to John Boyega, you know fuck all. So what do you want me to say? What they want you to say is, ‘I enjoyed being a part of it. It was a great experience…’ Nah, nah, nah. I’ll take that deal when it’s a great experience. They gave all the nuance to Adam Driver, all the nuance to Daisy Ridley. Let’s be honest. Daisy knows this. Adam knows this. Everybody knows. I’m not exposing anything.”

-It’s wild to me that some people are criticizing him for this interview and “biting the hand that feeds him.” Disney is increasingly consolidating the entire movie industry and is a multi-billion-dollar media monopoly. They don’t need Twitter fanboys to defend them.

Two more women have come forward with allegations that comedian Chris D’Elia exposed himself to them.

-A new take on Pretty Little Liars is in the works from the showrunner of Riverdale. No one needs this right now.

-The Venice Film Festival opened with a rallying cry in defense of the moviegoing experience in the face of threats posed by streaming giants.

-Why in the world is the CW  trying to rename the Arrowverse the CWverse? Nah.

Britney Spears is denying comments that she keeps posting the same selfies over and over, saying “well you know us girls …… it’s the same top and same hair but if you look at the details it’s a completely different picture.”  But — and I think this question applies to her entire social media presence — why?!

-There are new photos of Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis in their upcoming gay holiday romcom and I need this movie so much.

-Scientology is reportedly tightening its reins even tighter with celeb followers. How fun for them.

-Star Trek: Discovery’s third season is going to introduce Trek’s first explicitly trans and non-binary characters.
