Sometimes you take a big swing and you miss. It can happen to anybody. What’s important is that you dust yourself off and keep it moving. I hope that the dollmaker who took a noble stab at making an Idris Elba doll, will one day find it within himself to sculpt and paint again. A niche British doll company called Emperis was just trying to do a thirsty world a favor by creating a likeness of Idris that customers could fit in their pocket (flesh or fabric, no one’s here to judge). Unfortunately, the resulting doll didn’t turn out looking much like Idris. It looks more like Montel Williams after he’s eaten too much cheese.
My Hot Tip For Hot Dudes: Keep it shut! That’s it, it really is that simple. Fewer clothes, fewerer words. You would have thought that Michael B. Jordan would have learned this lesson by now after ruining a perfectly good fantasy about me, him, Lupita and Martin Freeman (don’t you dare judge me) tied up together in a Wakandan Knot by speaking out on separate rumors that he was gay and that he and Lupita Nyong’o were dating. Now he’s making things weird again by re-addressing the rumors that he only dates white women, when all I really care about is that he’s staying hydrated and not skipping glutes day.
Suddenly, the guard moving the TV remote in the prison day room is the least of Bill Cosby’s worries. Deadline reports that an L.A. Superior Court judge has just granted a woman named Judy Huth a trial date of October 17, 2019 for her civil suit against Bill, accusing him of sexually assaulting her at the Playboy Mansion when she was 15. That means he’s being accused of child sexual assault, which is not going help his case for getting double Jell-Os on Wednesdays.
This season of America is so wild, y’all. Did you catch last week’s episode where President Trump was holding a press conference and Jim Acosta from CNN asked him a few pointed questions, so Trump sent in an intern to take his microphone away and then revoked his press credentials? Then had his press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders try to make it seem like it was because Jim had “placed hands” on the intern by posting a video they got from a fringe, right-wing conspiracy website, which one of Trump’s attorneys later confirmed to had been “not altered” but “sped up“? That shit was BANANAS. Well, this week’s episode is just as crazy. CNN and Jim are suing Donald, Sarah, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, the Deputy Chief of staff, the Director of the Secret Service, and an individual secret service officer.
Thanks to The Cut, we now know what Kanye West smells like. Kim Kardashian was interviewed for a segment called Scent Memories where she was asked a series of questions that under normal circumstances would allow a person to show a little introspection, creativity or imagination. Not our Kim! Despite being an expert in the olfactory arts (in case you forgot, she’s an accomplished perfumer. But don’t worry, she’ll never let you forget it), Kim’s answers were uninspired.
You know Michelle “Go High” Obama has Seen. Some. Shit. Tragically for us, she’s not a petty bitch like me and and that other one, so Michelle kept things professional in her memoir Becoming, which debuts today. Michelle sat down with Oprah Winfrey for Elle Magazine to discuss her book and life after The White House. In the interview, she touched on her working class upbringing, the sacrifices her parents made, her marriage to Barack Obama, and how she’ll never forgive Donald Trump and his birtherism for putting her family at risk.
