Donald Glover spent most of 2017 collecting awards (Golden Globes and Emmys), getting cast as Simba, and pretending to be Lando Calrissian. 2018 is already shaping up to be big as well. The second season of FX’s Atlanta happens in March. Incidentally, 2018 is also the year Donald Glover proved to everyone that Donald Glover isn’t afraid to tell an interviewer what kind of bullshit he’s put up with from who.
During yesterday’s National Sporting Event, a sneak peek of the teaser trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story aired. So, basically a teaser trailer for a teaser trailer. Then the actual teaser trailer dropped today but it’s only slightly longer than the teaser, teaser trailer. Both the pre-teaser and the actual teaser show the big debut of Alden Ehrenreich as Han and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, but only one of them might be a terrible actor. Also in it are Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) with bangs, Woody Harrelson with bangs and Chewbacca, also with bangs.
If you’re sick and tired of hearing the overused screams of “YASSSSS QUEEN” then do yourself a favor and skip this post because the the purple carpet at the Black Panther premiere last night was shouting it from the mountain top! Every little phrase we’ve stolen from drag culture is appropriate here. I am gagged and my wig is snatched. Yes, they all did jump from there.
But of course this could only be Lady Gaga. While others might think, “You know, maybe this year I’ll walk up the red carpet in a piece that makes it looks like I’m trying to cover up all the hair I lost after leaving my at-home highlighting kit on for too long,” Lady Gaga goes out and does it. She tells her stylist to make her look like a 73-year-old balding hippie who refuses to face the music about their hair situation, and she wears it with pride! As for her outfit, well that’s another story all together.
Disney’s latest live-action MWTPTBG (mess with the potential to be good), The Lion King, is coming together and yesterday, Disney tweeted a picture of the confirmed cast. For a company like Disney, that is a very low-budget community theater-looking cast sheet. Not to mention how confusing it must have been when the real star Beyonce saw it. “Can someone explain why both my picture and name are the same size as everyone else? Oh wait, is this like a Destiny’s Child thing, where I pretend I’m part of a group? Ok, gotcha (wink).”
Attention enthusiasts know that the Emmys are a tasteful affair; you’ve got to balance out your ass with some class. Thankfully, Ariel Winter showed everyone last night how to do it. Ariel came in a dress by Steven Khalil featuring not one, but two crotch-high leg slits. Angelina, who? I’m sure her dress was very expensive, so for those of you hoping to find the look for less, I would probably suggest Craigslist the day after the next AVN awards.
