Mostly, the MTV Movie & TV Awards will give their Movie of the Year award to something shitty but popular (example: the Twilight saga sweeping the category from the years 2009 to 2012). But sometimes the stars align and MTV is able to give the award to a movie that is both good and popular, and this year was one of those years. Black Panther ended up taking home a bunch of awards.
Kesha has been battling her former producer and alleged abuser Dr. Luke for four years. She’s still contractually bound to him, and as of right now he’s suing her and her mother Pebe Sebert for defamation. Lady Gaga was dragged into Dr. Luke’s defamation suit about a year ago, and now Katy Perry is involved.
After waiting years to see what this potential mess might look like, Warner Bros. dropped the trailer for A Star is Born today, as well as the first official poster. As much as I wanted to believe this would be Razzie-bait, there’s word that it’s decent. That’s if it’s not thrown off by Bradley Cooper looking rode hard/put away in a jerky smoker, and Lady Gaga in a variety of deeply unconvincing wigs.
But of course this could only be Lady Gaga. While others might think, “You know, maybe this year I’ll walk up the red carpet in a piece that makes it looks like I’m trying to cover up all the hair I lost after leaving my at-home highlighting kit on for too long,” Lady Gaga goes out and does it. She tells her stylist to make her look like a 73-year-old balding hippie who refuses to face the music about their hair situation, and she wears it with pride! As for her outfit, well that’s another story all together.
Vital Vegas claimed yesterday that MGM Resorts has signed Lady Gaga to a $100 million, 50-show residency at the Monte Carlo. They probably aren’t right about the $100 million part, but they were right about her residency, because she announced it today.. Congratulations, Gaga – you got to do something before Madonna did.
The nominations for the 60th Grammy awards were announced this morning, and Jay-Z led with eight nominations. I suppose you could say that Jay-Z is the Beyoncé of this year’s Grammys? Although she actually got one this year too, for Best Rap/Sung Performance. I’m sure it’s a big day in the Knowles Carter house. Congratulations on your Grammy nomination, Beyonce! And also, you know, good job on all the ones you got today too, Jay-Z.
