The Stars Of The Original “Mean Girls” Were Reportedly Supposed To Appear In The Upcoming Movie Musical, But Talks Have Stalled Over Money
2004 was a much easier time to be a passive-aggressive, petty person: you could wail, “YOU CAN’T SIT WITH US!” or “she doesn’t even go here!” at anyone you didn’t feel like messing with. Everyone would just laugh and laugh and just pretend you were innocently quoting Mean Girls while swallowing the fact that all involved knew deep down you probably actually didn’t feel like fucking with that person. Paramount+ is currently working on a Mean Girls musical movie based on the Broadway musical that was based on the original movie that was based on a book. Since we’ve hit that point in the availability of new ideas, maybe the old Mean Girls standards will regain life anew. However, original stars Rachel McAdams, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Seyfried, and Lacey Chabert were slated to be in the film, but contract talks are allegedly at a standstill because of Paramount+’s “disrespectfully” low-money offer.
Cate Blanchett Calls For The End Of Televised Awards Shows While Accepting A Critics Choice Award On The CW…
The Critics Choice Awards aired on The CW last night, and a not-so-surprising guest crashed that shit like, “Bitch, I’m STILL here.” I’m talking about COVID-19. Nominees Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, and Jamie Lee Curtis, as well as presenter Michelle Pfeiffer, had to sit the show out after testing positive for Coronavirus. COVID-19 didn’t fuck with Cate Blanchett, though. She showed up to last night’s ceremony, won Best Actress for her performance in Tár, and used some of her time on stage to praise all actresses in the business and also declared that we need to finally call the time of death on the “televised horse race” known as awards shows. And then Cate galloped away with her Critics Choice Award in hand to place it right next to her two Oscars, three BAFTAs, four Golden Globes, three SAG Awards, and many other horse race prizes.
Amanda Seyfried Is Working On A Musical Adaptation Of “Thelma & Louise” With Even Rachel Wood Possibly Riding Shotgun
Mamma Mia! Just when Amanda Seyfried’s career was picking up speed, she’s about to drive that shit right off a cliff. And she might be taking Evan Rachel Wood down with her. Because according to Variety, the new musical that Amanda was so “deep in the process of creating” that she couldn’t make it accept her Golden Globe for The Dropout is a musical adaptation of Thelma & Louise.
Because of course, shifty pseudo cult leader Jared Leto is friends with shifty pseudo cult leader Elizabeth Holmes. Game recognize game and all of that. Speaking with Amanda Seyfried, who played Frizzy Lizzy (let’s make it happen, folks!) in the Hulu series The Dropout, as part of Variety’s Actors on Actors series, Jared said he met her after presenting her with Glamour’s Woman of the Year award in 2015 and they stayed in touch. In case you haven’t seen The Dropout, or listened to the podcast of the same name, or read the book Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup, or were in a coma when Frizzy Lizzy was convicted of fraud earlier this year, she’s a bad lying liar who lied a lot, badly! Yet well enough that she fooled many, many rich and famous people into believing she was the second coming of Jesus Christ, which is another thing she and Jared have in common.
Mary J. Blige, Keanu Reeves, Zendaya, Joe Rogan And Kris Jenner All Made The Time 100 List Of The World’s Most Influential People
Last year Prince Harry and Meghan Markle graced the cover of Time Magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world and since then, have done jack shit in the way of influence. They were featured in the Icons section, but those tricks can’t even launch an Instagram page let alone a revolution. So Time gave them the year off to get their shit together and Mary J. Blige has taken their place as the face of the Time 100’s Icons section. Mary shares the honor with Issa Rae, Keanu Reeves, Jon Batiste, and Adele plus a couple of people who actually worked for the accolade. And because you can’t even get the “Uh” out of Adele without James Corden popping up out of nowhere like a singing telegram sent by the devil himself, James wrote Adele’s intro and used it as an excuse to brag about her “singing in the kitchen, or belting at the top of her voice solely to make [his] children laugh.” It’s like, we get it, James, she’s your bestie. But if she’s so influential, then explain what happened to your career?
Elizabeth Holmes is the Silicon Valley fraudster who was found guilty on four charges including wire fraud and related crimes after she and her former business partner, Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani, hyped up a medical product they claimed could test for all sorts of diseases and conditions with just a drop of blood. But the gag was, the machine didn’t work. Elizabeth was found out and her plan unraveled very publicly after she was making headlines as a revolutionary new part of the medical community. Now she’s awaiting sentencing and faces 20 years in prison. But before she possibly goes to prison, she’ll be able to see Amanda Seyfried pretend to be her in Hulu’s The Dropout miniseries coming out on March 3.
