When it was first announced last August that Disney would be working on a She-Hulk series, the internet did what the internet does best – they started dream casting. I’m sure Teresa Giudice thought she had this in the bag, considering she’s got the muscles, she’s great at acting, and can transform into a beast in seconds. One name that popped up over and over again was Alison Brie, who has spent a couple seasons on GLOW flexing, screaming, and beating ass. And at one point, the internet was somewhat convinced she had it. But it looks like Disney is going with Tatiana Maslany.
The year is 2019, and there’s a teddy bear in Naughty by Nature. It’s as confusing a notion as it is a sentence to read. But these are the times we are living in. Time to accept that what once was in the past, will be revisiting us in the present (with a collection of random pop culture barnacles from The Time Tube attached), to confuse future generations. So now NBN (pictured above with their new bear Illtown Sluggaz and Redman) has a Kanye West style College Dropout teddy bear in it, and Treach has gone from excoriating his ex-wife Pepa (of Salt-N-Pepa fame) on Instagram, to parading around in bondage gear and issuing confusing handkerchief codes at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards. Hip hop hooray?
Last night’s Golden Globes turned out to be nothing more than a graveyard of all the drama that never was. Hosts Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg were over-the-top nice (blurg), nobody wanted to drag Bryan Singer in front of millions (boo), and the one bit of real red carpet drama, Chrissy Metz allegedly calling Alison Brie a bitch, turned out to be nothing more than a silly misunderstanding (hiss). According to TMZ, Chrissy’s not the soapy drama queen we hoped she was. During a Golden Globes pre-show interview on Facebook, Chrissy could be heard saying what many thought was “she’s such a bitch” under her breath on a hot mic after being alerted to Alison’s arrival on the red carpet. But TMZ says Chrissy actually said “babe” not “bitch”. What’s more, she said she considers Alison a friend and that anybody who knows her, knows she would never say something like that.
Believe it or not, but the most random beef I experienced tonight wasn’t the shit I got from Taco Bell for the Golden Globes. Yes, you can GONG me for that “joke,” but first use your hands to slow clap for Chrissy Metz for actually bringing some riveting drama to the 2019 Golden Globes, which are in need of some riveting drama.
There were some real upside down and sideways looks on display at the The Council of Fashion Designers of America awards in NYC last night. Most notably Whoopi Goldberg giving us Little Bo Peep who lost her sheep and was forced to go to the big city and take out a bank loan for more, wearing her best Big Business suit. The added bonus of that suit is that those giant bell bottoms probably ring so damn loud, the sheep should have no problem finding their way back home.
Other notable looks included: Cate Blanchett‘s tuxedo/ baked potato/ butcher’s apron combo, and the night’s host Issa Rae’s belt that read “Every Nigga Is A Star”. All of those looks and more are in the gallery but for now, we’ve got plenty of high fashion to keep us in “what is going on here”s for a week.
The Billboard Music Awards were last night and if the red carpet is any indication, it lived up to it’s name because most stars looked as bored as can be. With very few exceptions, most of the night’s looks were uninspired and devoid of whimsy. Nick Jonas (above) looks like he just showed up for his shift at Applebees and still needs to go get his flair from his locker and take a quick shot at the bar before getting started. He’ll be with you in a minute, ok?
