The new Spider-Man movie comes out this July, and I have a serious feeling that the creators of that shit have scheduled an EMERGENCY CODE RED reshoot of its ending. They know that it can no longer end with Spider-Man doing whatever Spider-Man does to beat the main villain played by Michael Keaton. It needs to end with Spider-Man destroying Michael Keaton by crotch-thrusting and gyrating while wearing a $10 polyester wig and some latex bloomers.
20-year-old Tom Holland and his 20-year-old Spider-Man co-star, Zendaya, were both on Lip Sync Battle and while she did Bruno Mars and Erykah Badu, he tucked and plucked to do RiRi’s Umbrella. If a dude action star goes on Lip Sync Battle, he’s probably going to do lazy drag, but what really brought out the puckers from Tom’s performance was his nipple-burning moves. Tom is a trained dancer, but I bet that he’s been practicing the Umbrella choreography for years in his bedroom, because he knew that one day he’d get cast in a major comic book movie and he’d get to promote it while lip-synching as RiRi on some American TV show.
Tom’s lip-synching makes Britney Spears look like she could win every Lip Synch For Your Life on RuPaul’s Drag Race, but that’s not what this is about. It’s about him working it like his rent, his mama’s rent, his daddy’s rent, his grandma’s rent, his auntie’s rent and his cousin’s rent was due weeks ago and they’re all about to be put out.

And is it just me or does Tom Holland in RiRi drag loos more like a young Clea DuVall in Posh Spice circa 2001 drag? Yeah, just me? Thought so.
Here’s the White RiRi promoting Spider-Man with his other co-star, Laura Harrier, in São Paulo last week:
