I guess Johnny Depp was just too tuckered out from his last messy lawsuit to bring his most current messy lawsuit to trial because Johnny has gone ahead and made his 2018 assault lawsuit go away before it could turn into a questionable jury-filled media circus. It was said that Johnny really wanted to settle the lawsuit that came out of an alleged assault that happened on the set of the direct-to-wherever it ended up feature film, City of Lies. Johnny got his wish, and that lawsuit is settled and done with.
Last month, iconic British singer Kate Bush was sitting at the top of the music charts once again. That’s because Kate’s 1985 song “Running Up That Hill” started trending and charting after it was featured in the fourth season of Netflix’s Stranger Things. Spotify reported that streams of “Running Up That Hill” had increased by 9,900% in the United States and 8,700% globally. And over on YouTube, the music video has nearly 94 million views. Clearly, a new generation had discovered who Kate Bush was, and they were very into it. Kate Bush is very happy about it! But not Taika Waititi.
Florence Pugh is a famous actress, and as such, part of her job is to show up to stuff in any manner of fashion, from high fashion to red carpet fashion to the always appreciated big ol’ fashion mistake. Florence showed up to the Valentino show in Rome on Friday, and as is tradition, she wore a sheer pink dress by the designer. The reaction Florence might have been expecting could have been gracious applause, or even perhaps the odd surprised gasp. And that could be how people reacted in person, but over on social media, where people are a little less polite, Florence’s look managed to illicit the fired-up emotions of many internet haters, who had no problem demanding that Florence cover up her damn nipples. Florence decided to comment on all the breast-based backlash, and – surprise! – she doesn’t appear to give a shit if her nipples offended anyone’s eyes.
Last week, Elon Musk decided that he didn’t actually want to buy Twitter for $44 billion and released a statement informing everyone that Twitter had misled him, and therefore he was backing out of the deal. That’s not good, considering Elon and Twitter signed a contract with Elon agreeing his intention to follow through with the purchase, and Twitter let it be known several times that they’d happily summon their team of lawyers on Elon, should he metaphorically skip town. So no one should be surprised that Twitter is lawyering up. But according to Elon’s recent Twitter activity, he’s not bothered in the least. In fact, he’s casually making ha-ha-has and tee-hee-hees about the whole mess.
UPDATE: Yup, as expected, Stunt Queen Elon has let Twitter know in a letter from his lawyer that he’s terminating the deal, and it’s probably going to get legally messy. via Market Watch:
“Mr. Musk is terminating the Merger Agreement because Twitter is in material breach of multiple provisions of that Agreement, appears to have made false and misleading representations upon which Mr. Musk relied when entering into the Merger Agreement, and is likely to suffer a Company Material Adverse Effect.”
Below is the original post:
Well, I’m starting to think that Elon Musk won’t end up being Twitter’s official cringe-based overlord after all (I really shouldn’t have pre-ordered those 200 t-shirts to sell out of my car). We’ve known for a while that Elon has been stalling on his $44 billion purchase of Twitter since he made a deal with them in April. Since then, Elon has been pulling some “Whoops, I must have left my wallet in the car!” shenanigans, by way of accusing Twitter of not being totally forthcoming about how many Twitter users are spam bots. And by all accounts, it sounds like Elon might be changing his wallet-in-the-car story to just straight-up dine-and-dashing.
Any fans of the incredibly enjoyable Oscar-winning 2018 film The Favourite are likely gasping in shock that not only would someone remake such a good movie so soon, let alone have the questionable judgment to cast Johnny Depp in such a thing. But that’s not what’s happening here. A French movie called La Favorite is currently in production and will begin filming this summer. It just so happens to have Johnny Depp in it, and this will be his first film role since winning his messy defamation lawsuit that wrapped last month. And unlike many of Johnny’s more recent film appearances, this movie will hit theaters, then be available for streaming, courtesy of Netflix.
