The American Music Awards doesn’t have the respectability of the Grammys or the pizazz of the MTV VMAs, but it’s got…well, it’s got a pointy award and people that show up, and that’s all you really need for a music award show. As such, guests still put in some effort for the red carpet. Post Malone’s hair is still a mess and he’s got those “Yes I’ve been slowly picking off my Shellac manicure” nails, but he also came through with a bedazzled belt buckle and nudie suit made by Union Western Clothing featuring his initials and several snakes. I guess he didn’t get the memo that Taylor Swift had the whole snake thing locked down last night. Oh well, it still pulled his whole look together. That is, if he was going for a look that tells people he’s a very successful businessman who sells snakes at an Alabama swap meet.
Demi Lovato is in “the news” for holding hands with a man after leaving Warwick nightclub in Hollywood. Can you imagine getting in “the news” for holding hands? Demi’s PR whore is probably starting the week off right by getting a “job well done” bonus from her. Continue reading
It looks like Halsey has another dramatic scene to add to the movie she’s making about her life. I can see it now: the door slowly closes, Halsey wipes away a single tear as she turns to leave. Her inner monologue muses, “And just like that, I was no longer dating a guy whose name sounded like an attempt to market pre-peeled garlic to millennials.”
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.
