Depending Who You Ask, “The Idol” May Or May Not Be Getting A Second Season

June 16, 2023 / Posted by:

Surprisingly, it doesn’t look like season two of The Idol is assured, so that may be bad news for Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye and Sam Levinson since they won’t have a show to enact all their torture porn fantasies. Actually, Sam still has Euphoria, so never mind! Insiders have whispered to Page Six that the show will end after season one thanks to Abel’s alleged “egomaniacal” behavior on set and the dismal reviews which have called the show “comically bad.” But another source says Abel is very nice–like a real Canadian–and that the show’s fate hasn’t yet been decided. And HBO has backed up that source’s claim.

Open Post: Hosted By The Weeknd Getting Dragged For A Scene In “The Idol”

June 13, 2023 / Posted by:

Correction: He’s getting dragged for EVERY scene in The Idol.

Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye and Euphoria‘s Sam Levinson‘s alleged “torture porn fantasy” has been streaming on Max for two weeks now, and people are not really reacting the way I think they wanted. The show stars Lily-Rose Depp as a troubled pop star who, after the death of her mother, falls in with a sleazy “guru” played by Abel. After scrapping the initial version of the show, which allegedly leaned too far into the “female perspective,” and filming expensive reshoots, the show premiered to mostly negative reviews. On Rotten Tomatoes, it’s currently sitting at a whopping 26%. And after the second episode aired this past weekend, people, who are still watching it, say they have “lost respect” for Abel entirely.

“The Idol” Premiered At Cannes And Lived Up To The “Torture Porn” Claims

May 23, 2023 / Posted by:

Max’sThe Idol premiered at Cannes, probably because the show has got tons of bad press for all of its sexual gratuity and violence. And the verdict is in, and it seems that it really is “torture porn,” but it seems like a lot of people at Cannes also really like that about it? Because it got a 5-minute standing ovation (although, a Cannes ovation that’s under 5 minutes really means nothing) and new showrunner, Euphoria‘s Sam Levinson, cried making a speech about how proud he was of a show with a plot point where a picture of Lily-Rose Depp‘s character with jizz on her face gets leaked online, and she gets called a “human cumsock.” I don’t know; I’m not sure this is going to get Lily-Rose a bunch of awards like Zendaya got for Euphoria. Well, unless the Razzies decide to give out TV awards.

The Weeknd Says He’s Retiring His Stage Persona After His Next Album

May 9, 2023 / Posted by:

Like a mob boss who no longer needs his henchman,  Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye is ready to kill off The Weeknd. Abel spilled that after he releases the album he’s currently working on, he’s going to kill off his The Weeknd persona since he’s “said everything” he can say at this point while under his current stage name. Well, maybe now that he’s 33, he’s getting bored with crooning about doing drugs at the club with hot chicks and will now start crooning about grown-up problems like the struggles of staying awake while watching a movie or figuring out what to cook for dinner. Just call him The Weekdy!
