Nine years ago, in 2011, the now 22-year-old Rebecca Black became an overnight internet star (?) by redefining “earworm” and creating a million memes (Did memes even exist then?) with her song Friday. Rebecca was only 13 years old then, and yesterday, she took a break from practicing for her audition for a local production of Chicago (that’s why she’s dressed like that, right?) to commemorate the 9th anniversary of Friday by telling everyone that it almost destroyed her life the same way it almost destroyed your nerves.
You would think that as a woman who spent the past three decades thumbing her nose at convention by parading around in her underwear and rubbing her crotch all over sexy Jesus’, both real and imaginary, Madonna would know a thing or two about censorship. But surprisingly, she doesn’t seem to have a clue as to what the word means. The Hollywood Reporter says that at last night’s Madame X show at the London Palladium, Madonna’s set went past the 11:00PM curfew so the venue shut off the lights while she was still on stage. This sent Madonna flying into a rage, accusing the venue of CENSORSHIP and of trying to kill everybody by dropping an iron fire curtain on her head. However, the accompanying video she posted of the incident on Instagram is decidedly less dramatic.
If Britney Spears didn’t have better things to do like squats with her hot boyfriend or enjoy the simple life at her neoclassical estate, I’d say she should sue the asses off of an art gallery in France who claim to be hosting Britney’s first solo art exhibition. However, according to the BBC, it’s simply not true! It seems the Sympa Gallery in Figeac, France is just having a laugh at Britney’s expense. And I won’t stand for it. Not since that Romanain influencer was falsely accused of faking her paintings has the art world been rocked by such slander and flagrant chicanery.
Meet Cristina Szeifert; artist, life coach, model, clinical psychologist, influencer, entrepreneur, and Tony Robbins acolyte. Emphasis on artist. It’s her PASSION! Not only is Cristina living her best life, the Romanian born renaissance woman has dedicated herself to helping others live theirs. Yet in this age of cynicism and rancor, Cristina’s manifold talents have recently come under scrutiny. According to BuzzFeed, a number of do-nothing talentless trolls have questioned Cristina’s artistic endeavors after noticing that many of the pictures she’s posted of herself in the act of creation looked suspiciously staged.
Actor. Artist. DJ. Thirst trap? Those are all words that now come to mind when I think of Ansel Elgort (in addition to the apt anagram Legal Stoner). Ansel was apparently feeling himself in all his Muppet Babies Val Kilmer Real Genius era realness and #IgnitedInstagram with a series of topless selfies for reasons unknown to anybody other than Alsel Elgort. Fellow actor. Artist. Artist. DJ. Thirst Trap Idris Elba please take note and follow suit!
Only Tilda Swinton could post a 6-minute long video of her dogs on the internet and have it be dubbed high art. I mean sure, she appears to have used a very nice camera and scored it with an opera by Handel, but a dog video is a dog video. But it’s Tilda so it must be art! I have a feeling that if I posted a 6-minute video of my cat licking his pecker and set to “The Magic Flute”, I’d get flagged for content violation.
