The last time we took a walk around the block on Jump Street, Sony was planning to make a third installment of the 21 Jump Street franchise (23 Jump Street, duh) a crossover event with Men In Black. But according to Collider, that may not be happening because production has already begun on MIB starring Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, and I guess Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum weren’t invited. That left the 23 Jump Street slot open for Sony to move forward with a female-led version. Now Collider reports that Tiffany Haddish and Awkwafina are both in talks to co-star in what they’ll probably call 23 Boob Street.
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.
It’s been a couple of seconds since infinitely messy comedian Katt Williams has graced the digital pages of Dlisted with his signature style. Were there no 7th graders to beat down, Target cashiers to slap, or seafood restaurants in which to hurl salt shakers at faces, you ask? There probably were but Katt’s not one to revist his classics. He is, however, one to opine on our current crop of comedians in a tone and manner much like your “tell it like it is,” bitter-at-life auntie uses after she’s had too many eggnog cocktails at Christmastime. Katt addressed Tiffany Haddish’s blowing up big time, and pretty much says it’s because she’s into white guys. If so, those are some lucky white dudes.
During Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart’s little monologue at the beginning of MTV VMAs on Monday night, she made a crack about the members of Fifth Harmony, who weren’t there, when talking about multiple-nominee and former Harmony Camila Cabello. Some people might have been laughing, but one of them wasn’t former Fifth Harmonizer Lauren Jauregui.
Obviously nothing can ever top the legendary sequinned charisma of Lil’ Kim’s purple nipple cover at the 1999 MTV VMA’s, but that’s not nearly a good enough excuse for people not to try. An iconic look is like rolling dice; you might wear something that ends up in one of those Best Looks of ALL TIME galleries for the rest of the internet’s existence, or you might be just wearing clothing. Cardi B could have shocked eyes by showing up in big hair, a dramatic cape, and no pants, but – yawn – been there, done that. Instead, Cardi B made her first red carpet appearance since giving birth last month in a purple gown by Nicolas Jebran and a pussycat wig. Cardi is giving me eccentric Beverly Hills housewife at a charity gala trying to steal the spotlight from her rival Bitsy Saint Claire. Wait a second – rich, attention-getting, short dark hair, daughter’s name spelled with an unnecessary K? Kris Jenner must be so flattered right now.
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.
