The Cast Of “Glee” Paid Tribute To Naya Rivera
Yesterday, Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub confirmed the awful, heartbreaking news that the body that was recovered in Lake Piru after a 5-day search was that of 33-year-old Naya Rivera. Naya’s biggest on-screen credit was arguably the role of Santana in Glee. Much like Mercedes, Santana could have easily carried 100% of her songs without the help of any New Directions backup, but Glee was an ensemble show, which is why everyone usually came together to belt out their emotions through song. Many of Naya’s former cast members have channeled that same ensemble energy, by spilling their feelings online together about Naya’s passing. Yes, even Glee’s most hated former cast member, Lea Michele.
Open Post: Hosted By The Trailer For Ryan Murphy’s “Hollywood”
Move over Quentin Tarantino, it’s Ryan Murphy’s turn to monkey with Hollywood history! And because it’s Ryan, it features twinks instead of toes. The first full trailer is here for Ryan’s upcoming Netflix Original series, Hollywood. According to Indiewire, the show takes place post WWII and “presents an alternative version of history wherein actors and writers of color are more openly part of the Hollywood studio system,” but apparently, uggos still need not apply. The show stars Darren Criss, Dylan McDermott, Patti LuPone, newcomers David Corenswet and Jeremy Pope, Justin Theroux’s rumored former fling Laura Harrier, Mrs. Sarah Paulson Holland Taylor and Jim Parsons. It also features Jake Picking as Rock Hudson and Queen Latifah as Hattie McDaniel, suggesting that Ryan finally learned the hard way not to fuck with Hollywood legends who are still alive. The show is written and directed by Janet Mock (Pose) and features a gas station where, for the right price, you can get your tank filled up with premium unleaded assoline.
Darren Criss Got Married
The slyly THOT-ful Darren Criss, 32, got married. The Glee refugee and television serial killer married his lady love of eight years, Mia Swier, in New Orleans yesterday according to Us Weekly. Darren wore an all-white tux. What a slap in the face to all of us that white tux is. Why not keep it elegant yet simple by wearing a tuxedo speedo, Darren? You’re always wearing wacky shit anyways!
Judith Light Once Again Delivered At The Critics’ Choice Awards (And Other Looks From The Night)
There was lots of glamour, color, and levity on display on the red carpet for last night’s Critics’ Choice Awards. And I’m going to go ahead and give all the credit to Judith Light. Judith set the tone, and everybody else did their level best to match her energy. There was probably a panicked buzz of “Judith Light, Judith Light, Judith Light” spreading among Hollywood stylists when they realized she was going to be there, forcing everyone to step up their game. Nobody quite got there, but they tried and that’s what counts. Ultimately, posing through Christian Siriano-made polka dots the size of dinner plates, Judith put all the kids on blast. If Judith wanted to be a real pal, she should have given a posing tutorial before the red carpet. Some people could really have used the help (see after the cut).
The Billboard Music Awards Fashions Put The “Bored” In Billboard
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?
Ed Sheeran Got Engaged To Someone Other Than Taylor Swift
The human representation of Taylor Swift Marketing Ploy #25 (“Platonically befriend dudes who don’t look like your other model friends so the world sees you’re not shallow.“), Ed Sheeran, got engaged. Hopefully his future bride didn’t see him in that “End Game” video. Please stop chucking the deuces, Ed. Bodies are still frozen mid-cringe after watching that. She might call off the wedding! (Oh, and Darren Criss got engaged, too.) Continue reading
