There were a lot of faces being pulled in the audience at last night’s Emmy Awards ceremony. Most of the cringing and eye rolling caught on camera (Merritt Wever staring into the camera with the dead eyes of a bored teen, Chrissy Teigen ducking out of way) appeared to be in reaction to Colin Jost’s invisible lips and Michael Che’s invisible charm. But one member of the audience looked like he was having the time of his life. In a surprise appearance, the legendary Teddy Perkins somehow managed to leave his palatial home in Atlanta and fly halfway across the country to attend the ceremony! I didn’t even realize he was still alive. I thought he had choked on a globule of ostrich egg.
Even though getting mocked on Saturday Night Live makes Donald Trump rage, his BFF Kanye West doesn’t seem to mind the comedic ribbing. Donald Glover hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, and they redid A Quiet Place as A Kanye Place, where that monster picks off the victims once they screech over whatever Trump-fapping or slavery nonsense Kanye had said. Surprisingly, he took to Twitter to praise the bit and not go ham like he did last week. Continue reading
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.

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.
