If one more Roger Ailes movie comes out, we’re going to have a fantasy Fox News league. Actually, that sounds terrible and is probably what Donald Trump already does with his favorite blonde lady anchors. Showtime’s Fox News movie has already tapped Russell Crowe to play the late Darth Vader of cable news, and now the one that has Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson (lol) and Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly has now signed its Roger: John Lithgow.
When it comes to the phrase “flip-flop” mentioned around Idris Elba, I wish it would be referencing his flip-flop fuck with Chris Hemsworth on PornHub. But lately, “flip-flop” is what the rumors about Idris being the next James Bond have been doing.
For the past week, Nicki Minaj has been been publicly feuding with Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner. That strategy hasn’t exactly been paying off for Nicki, as it was recently announced that the North American leg of her NickiHndrxx Tour got canceled, possibly due to low ticket sales. But that’s not to say that publicly dragging a Kardashian husband isn’t a lucky dice roll for everyone who tries it. Last fall, Taylor Swift repeatedly took aim at Kanye West and Kim Kardashian on her album Reputation. Taylor then took Reputation on tour in May, and almost four months in, Billboard is reporting that it’s now the highest-grossing US tour by a woman.
I guess people prefer their Madonna French kissing Britney Spears than blowing smoke up her own ass in the name of Aretha Franklin.
The Hollywood Reporter says that the VMAs drew its smallest audience for the second year in a row. Monday night’s show drew a little less than five million viewers across eight Viacom-owned channels. It also aired on TV Land because apparently someone in their marketing department thought replacing I Love Lucy for the night with Nicki Minaj humping something would be A-OK with Grammy and Grampy. Somehow, I doubt the memaws tuning in will drive up viewership to rid it of its curse ratings crown.
The previous record holder for the least-watched show was the 2017 VMAs, but they were able to blame that on Game Of Thrones airing at the same time. This year, it was just WWE and an NFL pre-season game.
I know I’m pushing 30, which is coffin-eligibility age in gay years, but I also think it maaaaay have had something to do with the performers, presenters and nominees. I’m not saying manipulate the votes, but maybe, just, maaaaaaybe people didn’t want to see Camila Cabello win Video of the Year (and blow smoke up Madge’s oddly taut-for-its-age ass) when Taylor Swift, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Kanye West and honestly anyone else in the music industry had albums out that did better!
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have one bullet left in the chamber, and they have plans to use it soon. And no, sadly they do not plan to shoot themselves in the foot with it. According to Us Weekly, they are planning on planting it in a stranger’s uterus. Kimye have only one remaining revenue generating human zygote on ice, and I guess now is as good a time as any, to begin a protracted publicity extravaganza they can milk for a solid year like they did last time. Oh, and the last of the Kardashian-West bio babies will be a boy.
When it was reported earlier this week that Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus had broken up after about a year of dating, and that he had moved on to a 22-year-old Playboy model, it seemed like yet another box was checked on Ben’s Mid-Life To-Do List. I’m sure anyone was surprised, and Jennifer Garner was right there with the rest of us.
