Singer Paloma Faith Doesn’t Think The Message In “The Little Mermaid” Is Appropriate For Young Girls
There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the live-action version of The Little Mermaid well before it entered the theaters, and now that it’s been released, people still have things to say. Initially, crowds of rabble-rousers were ready to bring their pitchforks and torches to the theaters to protest that the new version of Ariel, portrayed by Halle Bailey, is Black. GASP! Luckily all of that stupidity died down, and The Little Mermaid brought in $117 million at the North American box office this past weekend (and has made $180 million worldwide). But one person who saw the movie, British singer Paloma Faith, was outraged by the message of the film’s plot. Particularly the part where Ariel gives up her voice to become human. And now, Paloma has released a statement expressing her disappointment in the message of young women giving up their power to be with a man.
Disney Released A New Teaser, The Audio For Halle Bailey’s Version Of “Part Of Your World” And A Bunch Of Character Posters For “The Little Mermaid”
With every passing day, we get closer and closer to the release of Disney’s live-action version of The Little Mermaid. It comes out May 26. To satiate fans who are (sea)foaming at the mouth for that shit, Entertainment Tonight reports that Disney just released a new teaser trailer, the audio of star Halle Bailey singing Part of Your World, and a bunch of character posters. All your favorite animal sidekicks are there: Sebastian the crab (I thought he was a lobster this whole time), Scuttle the seagull, and Flounder the fish, skinnier and more dead-eyed than ever before!

Two carpets, both alike in dignity
(In fair Hollywood, where we lay our scene),
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil shoes make civil rugs unclean.
It’s crazy how those words by William Shakespeare are still as true today as they were in 1996 when we finally understood them thanks to Baz Luhrmann‘s Romeo + Juliet. And this morning, as the sun rose over the detritus of last night’s Oscars celebrations, one carpet emerged victorious and unblemished by the unsightly stains of blood and mud and whatever it was that Fine Ass Jonathan Majors had in his tiny silver sipping cup. For reasons we may only understand after Baz makes a movie about it, after weeks of torrential rain, the Academy of Motion Picture Sciences decided this was the year to break with a 64-year tradition and pull the Red Carpet out from under our feet in exchange for a Champagne Industrial Rug. For revenge, Florence Pugh could barely be bothered to dress for the big event so she just brushed her ponytail to the front and grabbed a beige duvet cover out of the dirty laundry for the Oscars, saving her pink comforter for the Blue Carpet at the Vanity Fair after party.
In the midst of the Everything, Everywhere, All At Once Oscar-spree, another movie made some waves last night when a new two-minute long trailer for the upcoming release of Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid aired, with Halle Bailey’s Ariel tail giving us some of the slap-action the awards show was lacking this year. And it seems like many movie-goers are excited to head to theaters when it comes out this May, but inevitably, there were also stank piles of human marine debris who are still livid that a black actress was cast as Ariel.
Blue Ivy Carter Bid $80,000 On A Pair Of Beyoncé’s Old Earrings At Tina Knowles-Lawson’s Wearable Art Gala
With Alec Baldwin’s career in a precarious position, it’s only right that a new Boss Baby should emerge from the wreckage. At the practically geriatric pediatric age of 10, Blue Ivy Carter is a hair too long in the baby tooth to retain the title, but she is well positioned to be crowned our nation’s premiere Mogul Middlegrader. Blue Ivy, accompanied by her entourage, which includes pop singer Beyoncé and her husband, rapper Jay Z, attended her granny’s little dress-up party over the weekend and made her presence known by bidding $80,000 for a pair of earrings at the 2022 Wearable Art Gala auction. Let one of Elon Musk’s looming babies fight it out with one of Nick Cannon’s predicted progeny for the title of Boss Baby. Blue Ivy is so far ahead of the game that she’ll be retired with a full pension before any of those babies coming up behind her even get a chance to check in with HR for their orientation.
Here Are The Trailers For Disney’s Live-Action “The Little Mermaid,” “Hocus Pocus 2,” And “Disenchanted”
Mickey Mouse probably lived it up last night by popping bottles and making it rain Disney dollars on twerking mice at Disneyland’s Club 33. Because the trailers for several movies that are going to make his greedy ass even richer were released. D23 Expo, the event where Disney drops trailers and info for their upcoming projects, is happening this weekend in Anaheim, CA. And yesterday, Disney released the teaser trailer for its live-action The Little Mermaid, and full trailers for Hocus Pocus 2 and the Enchanted sequel called Disenchanted. There was also an appearance by one of Disenchanted‘s stars, Patrick Dempsey, who served snow daddy realness.
