You might be thinking, “Err, exactly which anti-LGBTQ church are you talking about?” Today, we’re talking about Hillsong, that “alleged” money-making cult ran by the Hobby Lobby Terry Richardson, Pastor Carl Lentz. Justin Bieber was the Jesus of Hillsong before moving on to some other hipster church called The City Church. Hillsong is not a normal church, it’s a cool church, and it may dress itself up like a skinny jeans-wearing liberal hipster who marches in Pride Parades and holds up a Planned Parenthood sign at the Women’s March, but it’s against abortion and doesn’t exactly embrace gays. Chris Pratt is a member of Hillsong, and yesterday, Ellen Page called him out for it.
It’s a bit redundant to say so, because aren’t all award shows just an excuse for fashion houses to clean out their local Fabric Barn and send a famous person down the carpet in more material than a 1980s canopy bed set? But the Emmys did see a lot of by-the-yardage last night, like on Jessica Biel, who said yes to a white Ralph & Russo dress. If you think Jessica and Justin Timberlake look like they stopped by the Emmys on their way to appearing on the top of a wedding cake, you’re not the only one.
Stephen Colbert Gave Bill Clinton A Do-Over For His Disastrous “Today” About Monica Lewsinky And #MeToo
While there are plenty of modern-day assholes in power to take down a peg given the #MeToo/Time’s Up movement, we’re also going through our history books to be like, “Yeah, the dude was a creep.” Gird your loins, James Buchanan! We’re coming for your ass! I kid, but one name that keeps popping up is Bill Clinton, as nothing gave Donald Trump pleasure during the campaign trail than to hold a mirror up and say “I know you are, but what am I?” anytime the Clintons would say he was a real ass to women.
Bill was on Today yesterday and had a hissy fit when Craig Melvin questioned him about Monica Lewinsky. Last night, Bill went on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to promote the book he did with James Patterson, and Stephen tried to toss the former president a life raft and mulligan his answer. You’d think Bill would have assumed he’d be asked about his handling of the Monica Lewinsky situation and would have rehearsed something fresh, right? Ehhhh…he kinda improved the second time around. I guess? Continue reading
We have kissing cousins galore back home in the South (how do you think I was Make-Out King of HeeHaw County three years in a row? Kidding! I got that from making out with a squirrel.), but a brother-sister fling is just taking things way too far! Or it could be the next Christmas list line item on Goop, as Gwyneth Paltrow went on late night TV to says she views ex-husband Chris Martin as a brother. Continue reading
Ben Affleck appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night to promote Justice League. Ben probably thought that the most awkward and uncomfortable question Stephen Colbertwas going to ask him might be about Justice League’s garbage reviews. If only! Instead, Stephen bypassed that and went straight for the gross elephant in the room by asking about Harvey Weinstein and Ben’s own allegations of groping.
Last night’s Emmy was all about roasting Trump and host Stephen Colbert was the first to grab a stick and poke the fire during his opening monologue. Seth Meyers got in a mild shot at the expense of a very old tweet. Then towards the end, Stephen Colbert surprised the audience by bringing out one of Trump’s ex-minions. No, not Scaramucci, the one that…no, not Bannon. The guy before who – you know what, there’s been too many and this could take all day. He brought out Sean Spicer.
