Okay, this might be it. The weirdest headline to come out of 2020, a year which isn’t even halfway over and is already busting the seams with tons of WTF energy. Hilary Duff, former star of Lizzie McGuire and…well, current star of Lizzie McGuire, has been dragged into an internet conspiracy in which some people believe that she’s involved with some kind of secret child sex trafficking situation.
Hilary Duff was the first person in human history to say Gay Rights™ and now she’s about to save us from coronavirus. She’s done so much for us. She and other celebrities would like to remind the idiotic youths of the world that yes, you probably won’t die from coronavirus since it’s more deadly for people over 70 and those with immune or breathing issues, but someone else will die because they caught it from you, and that is the problem. Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift have also piped in to tell the kids to stay the fuck home.
Last week, Disney Plus announced that production on the new Lizzie McGuire revival was put on hold after they fired original series creator and revival showrunner, Terri Minksy. Word was the reboot was skewing too “adult” (read: too much anal) for squeaky clean Disney. Hilary Duff was none too pleased, and threw some subtle shade on her Instagram stories.
Well, now, Hilary’s being as subtle as sworn enemy Lindsay Lohan dancing at a Mykonos beach party. She went back on Instagram to publicly ask Disney to move the show to Hulu, just like they did with the Love, Simon show.
Last year everybody under the age of 35 got a big ol’ nostalgia boner when Disney Plus announced a Lizzie McGuire revival starring Hilary Duff. But it seems we hath sprung too soon, as production on the reboot has ground to a halt after the original series creator and current revival showrunner, Terri Minsky, was fired after filming two episodes. Hilary hasn’t publicly made any statements, but she did get a little Instagram shady and apparently she wanted a more adult Lizzie.
The nominations for the 2020 Golden Raspberry Awards have been announced, meaning that this year’s batch of unwatchable films and performances have been scooped and sifted from the litterbox and thrust back into the spotlight for one final evening before hopefully being flushed away forever.
To literally no one’s surprise, Cats led the nominations list, tying Rambo: Last Blood and A Madea Family Funeral, with eight disgraceful nods––guess those improved visual effects failed to disguise the fact that at the end of the day people were actually expected to pay money and enjoy watching a movie featuring an anaconda-less Jason Derulo, Taylor Swift (who didn’t even wear ONE beautiful gown) and a totally normal James Corden, in terrifying––and terrifyingly shitty––cat costumes.
Hilary Duff did the bride thing again and married her fiancé Matthew Koma on Saturday. Hilary kept fairly quiet about her wedding plans before the big day, but she did post the details on Instagram after it happened. Her stylist, on the other hand, kind of let the cat out of the bag. Or it might be more accurate to say – she let the flowers out of the brown paper wrap that they come in from the florist. People magazine says that Hilary’s stylist Jessica Paster threw up a pic of what appeared to be a bridal bouquet on Saturday with the caption: “Winter solstice…a day of luv.” It was later revealed that it was a day of luv between 32-year-old Hilary and 32-year-old Matthew.
