I don’t know why America’s going to bother with an election next year. All the important celebrities (and, thereby, the rest of the country) are going to vote for anti-vax candidate Robert Kennedy Jr.: his wife, Cheryl Hines, Alicia Silverstone, Aaron Rodgers, and now… drumroll, please… Rob Schneider. That’s right, RFK Jr. managed to snag the Schneider seal of approval. Pack your bags, Biden! You’re outta here.
Open Post: Hosted By Lana Del Rey Showing Up Late To Her Glastonbury Set Because Her “Hair Takes So Long”
Lana Del Rey had to follow invigorating acts like Guns N’ Roses, Lizzo, and that wispy English baritone treasure, Rick Astley, at the Glastonbury Festival on June 24. And since Lana, the “Greatest Songwriter of the 21st Century” (hork!), makes music that’s essentially auditory Ambien, the fact that she was scheduled to begin her headlining set at 10:30 p.m. made total sense. But Lana showed up annoyingly late, apologized to the crowd for her hair taking longer than anticipated, and acknowledged that her set might get cut short. And she was correct; because her mic got cut off mid-song at her scheduled end time.
Kim Kardashian Is Getting DRAGGED By WGA Members After Tweeting About Being On Set During The Writers’ Strike
As the WGA strike rages on, most people are riding in support of their demands for better living wages in the age of digital streaming. And although this is a move in the right direction towards justice and fair play, don’t tell that to Kim Kardashian. She may play a wannabe lawyer on TV, but in reality, she’s as clueless as the jury member who slept through the entire case. Because had she looked up the definition of the word STRIKE, she would realize crossing the picket lines is a bad thing. But since she also aspires to become the next Meryl Streep, she has been “acting” for a while. And during a day on set, she tweeted out a simple question. And even though she’s not a Writers Guild of America member, striking writers still took an opportunity to break out their word swords to cut her deeply during their hiatus of collecting checks for their skills and wit.
Jon Hamm is a married man! People reports that 52-year-old Jon married 35-year-old Anna Osceola in Big Sur, the same place where the Mad Men finale was filmed. That’s also where the couple met for the first time in 2014. Anna played the receptionist at the spiritual retreat where Don Draper gets the idea for the Coca-Cola commercial. She had pigtails (important). The wedding venue wasn’t the only Mad Men-inspired part of the wedding; Jon and Anna walked down the aisle to Nancy Sinatra’s 1967 James Bond theme, “You Only Live Twice”, which also appeared in Mad Men’s Season 5 finale. The song plays when Don makes the decision to cheat on his new, young wife. So, um, yeah.
Last night the annual conference of participation trophies known as The BET Awards took place during its allocated time slot on the last Sunday in June. And although there were many moments when I looked at the screen and asked nobody in particular, “Who the fuck is this?” there was one face I will always recognize, Patti LaBelle. In the past, she has both performed and been honored, but last night she took to the stage to pay tribute to the iconic Tina Turner, who sadly passed away last month. Unfortunately, another sad thing was Patti’s performance, which is being raked over the coals as the long-awaited sequel to her critically acclaimed 1996 Christmas special titled “Where My Background Singers!”
In an episode of The Language of Love with Dr. Laura Berman called “The Mother of All Fathers,” Nick Cannon–father to twelve with six different women–spoke about how he will be getting a master’s degree in child psychology and Ph.D. in “divinity.” I will applaud Nick for that child psychology degree. If he could pass any class or absorb a shred of knowledge, it would come in handy since he could save money on getting his children therapy to deal with their absent father figure issues and just provide the service himself!
