Josh Peck and Drake Bell have appeared on multiple Nickelodeon TV shows together (The Amanda Show, Drake & Josh, the two Drake & Josh specials). But that was clearly a long time ago. Josh is no longer a chubby kid in a series of bad wigs, and Drake has moved on to the messy former child star chapter of his life. By all accounts, they’re not close. That didn’t stop Drake from pouting online about not getting an invitation to Josh’s wedding.
Josh Peck married his girlfriend Paige O’Brien on Saturday. E! News says that several fans wondered online why Drake Bell was MIA from the wedding. Drake took his complaints to Twitter and tweeted (then deleted) “When you’re not invited to the wedding the message is clear…” which was followed by “Loyalty is key. ALWAYS remember where you came from.”
That’s not to say Josh didn’t invite any of his former co-workers to his wedding. On the contrary, E! says the guest list included his Grandfathered co-star John Stamos, as well as the mom of the two 4-year-old twins who plays Josh’s on-screen daughter.
I’m sure there’s a very good reason for why Drake didn’t get invited. Weddings are expensive, and Josh probably only had enough money left in the budget for one extra celebrity guest. And when it comes down to it, you know he’s always going to keep a seat open for Oprah.
All Eyez on Me, the biopic about Tupac Shakur, opens tonight and it’s gotten some not-great reviews so far. One review has been an unsolicited one courtesy of Jada Pinkett Smith. Jada, who was a friend of Tupac’s from way back, has denounced the makers of All Eyez on Me for taking creative liberties of her relationship with Tupac.
On Tuesday night, Elizabeth Banks accepted the Crystal Award for Excellence in Film at the 2017 Crystal + Lucy Awards in Los Angeles. During her acceptance speech, she pointed out the lack of good female roles available in Hollywood. It didn’t go as well as she probably hoped.
The gender-flipped Ghostbusters remake made a lot of people mad (specifically: angry fan boys who couldn’t handle ladies deflating their precious nostalgia boners), and it made a lot of money (a little over $229 million worldwide). Even though it didn’t technically do that great on its opening weekend at the box office and it didn’t make enough money to warrant a sequel, Sony still considered it a success. Dan Aykroyd, on the other hand, thinks it was a huge failure, and he’s placing the blame square on director Paul Feig.
Last week, Vulture senior editor Kyle Buchanan tweeted a picture from Cannes of a “questionable” billboard promoting an animated film called Red Shoes and the 7 Dwarfs. It features a thin Snow White and a thick Snow White with the tagline: “What if Snow White was no longer beautiful and the 7 Dwarfs not so short?” Rude! I’m sure there are some people who would consider Alex Borstein in cartoon form to be quite beautiful.
Yesterday was Mother’s Day, the day when the internet comes together and threatens to crash Instagram’s servers by mass-uploading pictures of moms with captions about how they’re the best in the world. One popular theme yesterday was for dads to thank the mothers of their children. Russell Wilson Instagrammed a message to Ciara on her first Mother’s Day with their daughter Sienna Princess, which included a line about how he’s so grateful to get to raise “our” kids together. That “our” didn’t sit well with people.
