The Billboard Music Awards were last night and if the red carpet is any indication, it lived up to it’s name because most stars looked as bored as can be. With very few exceptions, most of the night’s looks were uninspired and devoid of whimsy. Nick Jonas (above) looks like he just showed up for his shift at Applebees and still needs to go get his flair from his locker and take a quick shot at the bar before getting started. He’ll be with you in a minute, ok?
So I think I can correctly guess what unknown substance Halsey was caught snorting on a yacht in Miami back in January. Just a hunch, but all signs are pointing to “not scratch-n-sniff stickers.” TMZ says that 23-year-old Halsey’s 28-year-old boyfriend of eight months, G-Eazy is currently in a lot of trouble. Or “besvär,” if you will. And I will, because this happened in Sweden.
Have you watched 8 Mile recently and thought, “What I really wish is that it starred a mononymous millennial with sticker book tattoos that likes to party and often looks like she’s been digging through the Spice Girls’ rejected costumes” well then you’re in luck. Deadline says that Sony Pictures has closed a deal for the rights to 23-year-old signer Halsey’s life.
The movie be loosely based on her life, and the hope is that Halsey will star. The 8 Mile comparison wasn’t just me making an obvious joke; sources say that Sony hopes Halsey’s movie will do for her career what 8 Mile did for Eminem.
This all came about after Sony Pictures met with Halsey about the possibility of putting her in a movie, and they all agreed said movie should be about her life. Halsey grew up in New Jersey. Part of her identity is composed of being bisexual, bipolar, and biracial. In 2012, she began posting videos of herself performing covers on social media and YouTube. Eventually she was contacted by record labels when a song she posted to SoundCloud got popular. Halsey also has a bit of acting experience; she has a small part in Bradley Cooper’s A Star is Born.
If this movie is Halsey’s 8 Mile, then that means we’re bound to get plenty of backstory. Finally, those of us who care about the unspoken roommate code of ethics will learn exactly what happened in Boulder to make Halsey commit grand mattress larceny. Since this is Halsey’s 8 Mile, that means there will be a big, powerful Lose Yourself moment at the end. The obvious choice is that time Halsey told off her rude fans for blowing up her Twitter mentions. That Oscar is your, Halsey.
One-time enemy of Iggy Azalea Halsey is 23, she’s in Miami over the weekend, on a boat, with friends. Throw in the ol’ X = drugs and/or booze, and I believe that might be the makings of a mathematical formula for a good time.
Everything is getting the reboot or throwback treatment. Will & Grace? Coming back! Every other defunct show at NBC? Coming back! McRib at McDonalds? Coming back! Just kidding, I don’t know about that one. Lollapooloza was this weekend. I only knew that since my Republican relatives all sent me asshole emails about Malia Obama dancing around at The Killers concert, because dems dah devil’s side-steps. And my gays all sent me clips of an insult to the good name of our Lordesses of Seasoning, the Spice Girls. Continue reading
Last week, a future “Where are they now?” started a feud when Halsey fired some shady shots at Iggy Azalea. Halsey, who is bi-racial, said she’d never work with Iggy Azalea, because Iggy’s a “moron” with a “complete disregard for black culture.” People says Iggy talked about Halsey’s shots at her while on the Australia radio show Smallzy’s Surgery (which also sounds like where she gets her work done).
