It’s already off to the damn races for the 2020 Oscars, and Elton John helped Taron Egerton launch his campaign to become Rami Malek 2.0 last night. Elton always throws a big Oscars bash since it’s his annual big dick contest with Madonna and her own Oscars bash. Taron, who is playing Elton in the upcoming Rocketman, actually sang “Tiny Dancer” at Elton’s party, and El was more than happy to oblige since Madge and Gaga’s publicity stunt couldn’t DARE be the news of the night.
Booking a New Year’s Eve show in a major city is a pretty impressive feather for any stand-up comedian’s cap. Unfortunately for Tiffany Haddish, the feather wasn’t tightly secured and fell off and got trampled during her set at Miami’s James L. Knight Center. Tiffany was not ready and bombed spectacularly. And because #thesetryingtimes continue a pace in 2019, some clown recorded it and posted in on Twitter, prompting harsh backlash to Tiffany’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad night.
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.
