BBC Radio 2 has apparently quietly dropped Michael Jackson‘s song catalog from airing on the station ahead of the premiere of the two-part documentary Leaving Neverland, which starts airing on HBO tonight and on Channel 4 in the UK on Wednesday. Leaving Neverland, in case you don’t already know, shows the sad and fucked up account of the abuse that MJ allegedly afflicted upon James Safechuck and Wade Robson when they were children. That documentary has caused BBC radio to ban all things recorded by the singularly sparkling gloved one.
I always need an internal Hazmat Cleanup when I see or hear the words Harvey Weinstein, and the above effigy created by Edenbridge Bonfire Society that was burned moments later, barely takes the edge off of the disgust his name and image invoke. He has become synonymous with that festering pile of abandoned trash floating on a barge in New York Harbor. This latest Harvey garbage isn’t any less biohazard producing than any other, and it has an extra layer of grossness to it. Apparently Harvey dragged Jennifer Lawrence into his bad acts, claiming that he had sex with her, while in the act of attempting to rape a woman who has now filed a lawsuit against him.

In “Riveting News From 2001” News, The Hollywood Reporter posted excerpts from a biography about Sherry Lansing where she talks about how much the saint formerly known as just Angelina Jolie wanted to star in the movie version of Tomb Raider. Sherry was CEO of Paramount Pictures at the time that Tomb Raider was being made and says that the producers and other executives were worried that Angie would fuck the movie up. Angie wanted it so badly that she offered to be drug tested every single day. “Oh so THAT’S where her ass got the idea from,” said Brad Pitt as he softly stroked his trusty former friend, his bong, while remembering the good times they had together.
Yesterday, Robin Thicke and Paula Patton’s custody fight situation got worse when she accused him of physically abusing her. Paula had already accused Robin of abusing their 6-year-old son Julian. She was granted temporary sole custody of Julian yesterday and a judge approved her domestic abuse restraining order against Robin. She also alleged in court papers that Robin is a code-red cokehead and violent, cheating douche. Well, we now know more about Robin’s alleged drug use and shitty behavior.
According to Robert Durst, you can add another layer of weird to his already weird saga, because he claims he was high on meth during some of the filming for The Jinx. But again, this is according to Robert Durst, and those of us who watched The Jinx know you can’t really trust anything he says until he thinks his mic has been turned off.
Obviously we’re only teased with just a teeny tiny bit. Every producer knows that if you want to put actual asses in theater seats, you don’t give away all of Ewan McGregor’s business for free in the trailer.
The official trailer for T2: Trainspotting, the 20-years later sequel to Trainspotting from Danny Boyle, was released today. Based on that title and knowing it happens 20 years after the original, I naturally assumed the trailer for T2: Trainspotting would feature Rent Boy trying to outrun Sick Boy, who was turned into a T-1000 after accidentally shooting mimetic polyalloy instead of heroin. It’s nothing like that. T2 is based on the book sequel to Trainspotting called Porno, and is all about everyone getting together to do drugs and make porno. If you want to skip straight to Ewan’s ass, it pops in to say hello around the 1:24 mark.
Everyone from the first Trainspotting is back for T2. Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Kelly Macdonald. They’ve also updated Ewan’s “choose ___” monologue to reflect 2016. Now instead of “choose compact disc players” it’s “choose Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.” I call bullshit on that one. Don’t tell me Ewan’s character didn’t look up Diane at least once on Facebook drunk at 2am during the last 10 years.
