Lindsay Lohan was on Good Morning Britain today with dried up glob of butt jelly Piers Morgan and she told a story about how she was stopped by an agent at Heathrow in London while trying to catch a flight to New York. No, the agent didn’t stop her because they took one look at her face and believed that she may be The Joker in a bad disguise and is making her way to Gotham City to wreak havoc on it. LiLo says that she was “racially profiled” because of the headscarf she was wearing. And now begins yet another episode of Ginger Wreck, Say What?!
While performing a show in London on Wednesday night as part of Drake’s Boy Meets World Tour, he took a sharp slap at one of his oldest foes, Chris Brown. If Drake’s tour was anything like the real Boy Meets World, this would be where Mr. Feeny sits Drake’s ass down to tell him to stop poking at Chris Brown.
…and so am I, obviously.
It’s been over a week since Mariah Carey’s gigantic shit show hit Times Square and instead of letting the people forget about it, she and her manager Stella Bulochnikov keep bringing it up over and over again. I had no idea that Mimi was the type who after she takes a colossal shit in her toilet, texts you a picture of it and then brings it up again a week later over drinks…and again a week after that over dinner.
TMZ says that Johnny Depp recently filed legal documents side-eyeing Amber Heard’s request for her settlement money. Amber filed a request for order in December which accused Johnny of stalling on the $6.8 million in settlement payments he owed her from their divorce. Money that she had promised to two charities, the ACLU and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. Johnny shot back and asked a judge to force Amber to pony up $100,000 for his legal fees. Now Johnny is accusing Amber of wanting more settlement money. Not because she wants money, mind you. No, in Johnny Depp’s mind, she wants more money in an attempt to stay relevant and keep people feeling bad for her.
Back in July, Michael K had the unenviable task of breaking some hard news to us: Lifetime kicking us in our nostalgia nads by remaking Beaches. Well, we’re fast approaching the release of Beaches 2.0, so Lifetime released a trailer. Let’s just watch this thing and get it over with.
As you can see, the new version is going to have Idina Menzel in Bette Midler’s spot and Nia Long in Barbara Hershey’s. As you can hear, Idina is going to be caterwauling Bette’s 1988 hit “Wind Beneath My Wings” among other songs, both old and new.
I hopped off the Idina Menzel train head-first back during those unspeakable years when every child alive wanted to sing Frozen songs at me. She’s a great talent and she gave us one of my favorite John Travolta gaffes of all time so I won’t hate too hard. But that voice sends the wrong kind of chills up my spine and this trailer was tough.
Even tougher are the visuals. This trailer looks like an extended ad for a medium-fancy rehab facility that calls itself a “wellness retreat center.” Whatever it is, it’s definitely not the original. Remember how shitty and selfish CC was? And how Hillary would just sit and scowl all aloof in a corner? THAT was drama. This new trailer is just cuts of two women laughing and touching their foreheads together.

Variety says that a little over 8 million people watched last night’s American Music Awards (which was down a giant 31% from 2015) and so that means a little over 8 million people have sore faces this morning from cringing hard over Gigi Hadid trying to bring the comedy. Gigi co-hosted the AMAs with Jay Pharoah and for me, they were easily the most entertaining part of the night. Their opening was such a train wreck that I’m sure federal investigators are going to launch an investigation into how and why it happened.
