The Kanye West vs. Drake beef that never seems to end (ever) reminds me of the fancy sport cricket, or even better, the long play version of cricket called a test match. It’s an extended game that usually lasts five days or even longer if you’re an extremely unlucky spectator. It’s the athletic equivalent of watching paint dry, and not for anyone less than the die hard cricket fan. This rivalry is becoming the cricket test match of celebrity feuds, ie. it is so boring I forgot we were still supposed to be paying attention. But apparently we are, because Kanye is pissed at some old Drake news that’s had him throwing a tanty all over Twitter this morning. Someone call this feud off already so we can all go out for pitchers and slices!
No, that headline does not imply that Russell Crowe (giving mid-life crisis Kris Kringle above) had the runs, it means he was Aussie levels of pissed off that someone had the audacity to suggest that he actually read for a part. This time it was Deadpool 2 creator Rob Liefeld on the receiving end of that Russell Crowe fury (take a breath, Azealia Banks, he’ll get back to you in a minute). Digital Spy says that Rob shared a heartwarming Twitter morsel about being the latest to receive the wrath of Russell while speaking on a Las Vegas Comic-Con panel promoting Deadpool 2.
There probably won’t be a season 5 of BBC’s Sherlock because Martin Freeman is a little bitch. Or, Martin doesn’t want to fuck with the show anymore because of the high expectations from rabid Sherlock fans. And you can probably add Benedict Cumberbatch to the list of people who think Martin needs a nappy change. Benedict doesn’t agree with Martin and thinks the fans are A-OK.
Things don’t sound too chummy between Josh Brolin and CGI-loving director James Cameron. Not that I ever assumed they were friends, but now I know they’re definitely not. Instead, things are awkward between them, and it’s all Avatar’s fault. I’m sure Avatar has caused many a fight between friends, family, and colleagues, but those were probably caused by arguments over how terrible that movie was. That’s not what Josh and James are salty about (well, not technically).
Really? I never could have guessed from Tom Hardy looking very unimpressed while posing with Charlize Theron at the Cannes premiere. While promoting Mad Max: Fury Road last year, Charlize Theron candidly spoke about her working relationship with Tom Hardy, saying they “struggled” with each other. Charlize told Esquire that after they were done shooting, Tom gave her a painted portrait of herself with a note on the back that read: “You are an absolute nightmare, BUT you are also fucking awesome. I’ll kind of miss you.”
Zoe Kravitz, who played one of the five kidnapped wives in Mad Max, confirmed on Watch What Happens Live last night that the stories are true, and that they pretty much hated each other.
In Katy Perry’s latest song, Swish Swish, she sings that it’s funny a certain “bish,” who is most definitely Taylor Swift, can’t keep from saying her name. After Swish Swish was released, Katy blabbed about her immature popular girl fight with Taylor while trapped in a car with James Corden. According to UsWeekly, Taylor is over this shit with Katy. A friend of Taylor’s claims she is sick of the drama, and wants “no part” of Katy’s thirst to keep it going.
“She honestly wants no part of this, that’s why she avoids talking about it. She doesn’t want to engage.”
Katy said in a SiriusXM radio interview last week that she’d be happy to end their feud if Taylor gave her a call. Katy has a better chance of receiving a phone call from the ghost of Alexander Graham Bell than one from Taylor. Another source close to Taylor says she has no intention of reaching out to Katy, especially considering the lyric in Swish Swish where Katy sings about “another one in the casket.” Funny, that’s also where I thought this feud would have been by now.
I doubt Taylor hates that Katy is keeping this dumb drama going between the two of them. If anything, Taylor probably appreciates all the hard work Katy is putting into it. Taylor spent some of 2014 and all of 2015 keeping people interested in this nonsense. She sort of took a break in 2016 to focus on Kanye West, and 2017 is shaping up to be a busy year, what with her new boyfriend. It’s Katy’s turn to do some of the heavy lifting now.
