Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his family may look strong in that picture, but apparently they weren’t powerful enough to fight off COVID-19. Yep, corona got The Rock! And his wife Lauren Hashian, and their two young daughters, Jasmine, 3, and Tiana, 2. They all tested positive for coronavirus a few weeks ago. The Rock announced the bad news in an 11-minute Instagram video.
Luckily, The Rock says he and his family are on the other side of the illness, and “we’re counting our blessings right now”. Jasmine and Tiana suffered minimal symptoms and recovered after a couple of days, but the virus wasn’t as easy on The Rock and Lauren.
This is our fault. We did this to ourselves. At some point we’re going to have to take responsibility for ourselves as a country and accept the premise that it is, in fact, a shit hole ruled by oligarchs, grifters, charlatans, and DJs with Marshmello heads, and hopefully, commit to making the changes necessary to rectify that. Otherwise, all is lost. Even if Forbes’ Celebrity 100: The World’s Highest Paid Celebrities list is a dubious distinction, we have to admit that even if their formula is about as scientifically sound as the teachings of Dianetics, it does say a lot about what we value as a culture. And right now it’s saying we value Kylie Jenner the most. She earned $560 million. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but 2020 will do strange things to a person—Taylor Swift was ROBBED! Last year’s #1 dropped to #25 ($63.5M) and Kanye West scooted into Kylie’s former #2 slot with $170M.
Screenrant says that Tim Burton‘s 2005 remake of Charlie & The Chocolate Factory could have been a very different movie. While the role of Willy Wonka was disturbingly played by Johnny Depp in Bizarro World Anna Wintour drag, it seems another actor could have ended up wearing that bob wig. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was considered for the role of Willy Wonka. Can you smell what The Rock is cooking? It is sweet and delicious!
Have you ever wondered if you’d have sex with Taylor Swift as a man? Now you can find out, as she dressed up as The Man (specifically, Leonardo DiCaprio as Jordan Belfort in The Wolf of Wall Street) for her video for her song The Man. And for some reason, the Swifties are stunned that she did this and had no idea it was her until the ending “twist” reveals as much. Okay but, if you have two working eyes and even an ounce of deductive reasoning, you can guess that Taylor Swift is The Man within the first thirty-seconds. But then again, you might also think it’s a Botoxed Tom Cruise on stilts.
After two whole years languishing – suffering, even! – in the number two spot, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is back at the top of Forbes’ annual list of the highest-paid actors. Now someone else can be the roody-poo candy ass number two, and that someone is Chris Hemsworth. Hang your head (and bank account) in shame, hottest Hemsworth brother.
How’s this for tragic: The Rock put a rock on it, and now Lauren Hashian, The Rock’s girlfriend and mother to his 2 pebbles, can go around calling herself Mrs. The Rock, yet she chooses not to. I will never, ever understand people. According to People, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson revealed on Instagram that he and Lauren got married in Hawaii with minimal hooplah. Pfft! If I were marrying The Rock, not only would I go around yelling at everybody “It’s Mrs. The Rock to you!”, I would have wasted so much of his money on unnecessary hoopla, it would make your head spin.
