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.
That was fast. Before we could clean the panting hot breath marks and sticky palm prints off the inside of our car windows after hearing that Khloe Kardashian (in wax above) was “in contention” (AKA anywhere from completely fabricated to already inked), to be the next Bachelorette, the rumor has been shot down. According to Khloe’s Momager Kris Jenner and
protective moral compass big sister Kim Kardashian, Khloe as the Bachelorette is a no go, which is a shame, since she clearly can not be trusted to swipe right on her own.
It’s Valentine’s Day, a day meant to booze and binge eat home alone or spend triple the normal amount on a dinner at a mediocre steakhouse. Ain’t life grand?! Well, if you’re Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, it’s a day to go peak game-ho, and this year that means a private Kenny G concert in the living room.
Can you imagine being such a horrible, shitty, demonic human being that not only record labels who you make shit-tons of money for have to drop you but entire countries say, “We’re good”, when you try to visit them? Enter: R. Kelly, who may not be allowed into Australia anymore.
So it’s been a minute since this was in the headlines, but you’ll probably remember the familiar sensation of your skin crawling as you read this and it’ll all come back to you.
Voice-over god, who once actually played God, Morgan Freeman, was surrounded by rumors that he was going to marry his step-grand daughter E’Dena Hines back in 2009, whom he had raised with his first wife since childhood. That (thankfully) never happened, but something awful did happen in 2015. E’Dena was found stabbed to death on the streets of NYC with her ex standing over her body, screaming incoherently. In case that wasn’t enough to make your skin ask for a ticket on the first plane off your body, we have an update: E’Dena’s killer has been sentenced. And the hearing brought out close friends: Ick and Drama.
The first two episodes of the R. Kelly docu-series on Lifetime, Surviving R. Kelly, aired yesterday and it was something. Of course we all knew R. Kelly was a creep (remember when he was in that person’s closet for 20 years), but the tea which was spilled on R. Kelly’s creepiness about how he wouldn’t let women speak to people and had to call him “Daddy” all the time… was a new kind of disgusting. And it ain’t over, there are two more episodes coming. And one of them features an interview with John Legend, who was one of the only musicians to speak out.
