After two days of public viewing (featuring a costume change and a gold casket, no less), today was the day everyone gathered and honored the life of the Queen of Soul at her funeral. But of course a legendary diva like Aretha didn’t go out with a couple eulogies and pastor-led rendition of “Amazing Grace” before a lunch of sandwiches in the church hall. That gold casket should have been your first and only clue needed to know Aretha would absolutely going out like a legend in an all-day, star-packed memorial service.
Last night’s Bruno Mars Appreciation Ceremony, er, the Grammy Awards was chock full o’ boring ballads, but one part kind of brought out the funnies and it was a skit involving musicians reading Fire And Fury (the book by Michael Wolff about all the allegedly crazy and stupid shit going down in Trump’s house). Everyone from Cher to Cardi B took turns reading about Trump’s love for McDonald’s and maniacal ways, but the “surprise” reader at the end was Hillary Clinton. Trump’s supporters naturally lost their minds seeing their favorite punching bag take time away from Cardi B’s gift of sound effects. Continue reading
Republicans across Red State America just got an early Christmas gift to add to their laundry list of FAKE NEWS outlets they sure as shit will never tune in and watch. Saturday Night Live cast member and heavily tatted (I mean, compared to my pale AF body, those arm tattoos make him look like a biker!) Pete Davidson tossed up a photo on Instagram on Friday of his newest ink. And it goes without saying it isn’t exactly going to get him an invite to the Republican National Convention.
Pete’s latest tattoo is obviously none other than Hillary Clinton, located on his right leg. They say “Mom” is the only safe thing a dude can get tatted on his body, but I guess a former Democratic presidential candidate works, too? UsWeekly says HRC herself seemed flattered by the gesture, and commented on the post with a mom joke:
“Thanks, @petedavidson. This makes it significantly less awkward that I’ve had a Pete Davidson tattoo for years. But seriously, I’m honored. Merry Christmas my friend.”
Some fans figured that shit was as fake as the tattoos you get in exchange for ten tickets at Chuck E. Cheese. But Pete’s tattoo artist Jon Mesa, who also inked up Miley Cyrus when she was a guest on SNL last month, backed his boy up and confirmed it was very much real. I just don’t get all this questioning over the authenticity of a Hillary tattoo. What we really need to be asking ourselves is why when Pete asked for a Hillary Clinton tattoo, Jon gave him a tattoo that looks more like Pete asked for Mary Tyler Moore circa season 3 of The Mary Tyler Moore Show!
In my world, the word of the year was “tenders,” because I moved about ten feet away from a Popeyes in January and have ordered enough spicy tenders to keep them in business. But for Dictionary.com, the word of 2017 was “complicit.” That’s a word that was used over and over again when talking about how some people within Harvey Weinstein’s circle knew about how his behavior and did nothing.
The New York Times recently published a piece about those complicit people titled Weinsten’s Complicity Machine. They attempt to explain how Harvey could be Harvey for so long inside and outside the walls of The Weinstein Company. Apparently “That’s just Harvey being Harvey” was a common phrase uttered by agents and managers in response to complaints. One such possible instance of complicity involves Lena Dunham and aides of Hillary Clinton.
It’s mirrored shitting! It would be easy to take a dump on George Clooney’s “man of the people” claim considering he gets to boink one of the world’s top humanitarian lawyers in a palatial Lake Como estate while he awaits that up to $1 billion Casamigos payment to get divvied up. But you shouldn’t! The Daily Beast landed an interview with Ocean sans the 11, and he’s here to tell Donald Trump and his cronies to back the F up on telling “coastal elites” to shut up. They’re the elite ones! Continue reading
The trailer for American Horror Story: Cult dropped yesterday, and, no, it wasn’t just a film of Hillary Clinton’s supporters sipping a giant vat of Sleepy-Tea to slumber on through the next four years. Instead, that shit begins in Michigan on Election Night 2016. You know, that state everyone knew HRC had on lock, so she didn’t even bother to visit. Welp, we know how that turned out: HORRIBLE. Thus, Ryan Murphy knew nothing would be spookier reliving that shit. Only, he could make it spookier…WITH CLOWNS!
