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.
It’s probably safe to say that by now, just about everyone and their dog has heard the rumor that Ellen DeGeneres fakes the nice for TV while being a nightmare employer behind the scenes. I say “employer” specifically, because there are still some rich famous people out there who don’t seem to understand that someone could be both a good friend and a terrible boss. And of course, there are some people who are happy to stick their fingers in their ears and say, “Hashtag I stand by Ellennnnnnn.” But lots of people have read the allegations from past and present Ellen employees, and all the first-person stories on social media.
I don’t know what kind of reputation damage control Ellen has been doing to prepare for her return to TV this fall – maybe taking some online classes with the Care Bears or practicing how to hold a smile for 60 minutes. Howard Stern has decided to offer up a little advice to Ellen. And Howard thinks Ellen should just scrap the whole nice act and lean into her alleged reputation as an asshole.
Harry Styles sat down with Howard Stern for his SiriusXM radio show and talked about everything you’d talk about while on The Howard Stern Show. Harry got into his ex Taylor Swift writing a song about him, how he bit some of his tongue off while high on shrooms, and his good friend Stevie Nicks. It seems Harry has as many secrets as he does nipples.
Wendy Williams, who has talked shit about literally every human person on the planet Earth (even the ones she likes), would appreciate it if Howard Stern would lay off her. Entertainment Tonight says that on her show yesterday she brought up Howard during her hot topics and requested that he kindly keep her name out of his mouth. I think there are a couple people who have the same note for you, Wendy.
Howard Stern Slams Simon Cowell And “America’s Got Talent”, Sharon Osbourne Has More Positive Opinions
America’s Got Talent and everyone involved in its production are still dealing with the shit storm created after they fired Gabrielle Union for reportedly complaining about the toxic shit she witnessed. Part of that shit storm now involves other past judges chiming in. Howard Stern and Sharon Osbourne have thoughts about what’s going on. Howard has some fighting words while Sharon was a bit nicer.
The Blast says that Billie Eilish, the 17-year-old popstar who has taken the world by storm with her actually decent music and her extremely weird, but somehow slightly-relatable personality, is continuing her brand of being a weird quirky famous youth by learning something new and important about herself on the radio. While doing an interview with her brother, Phineas O’Connell on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show, Billie learned that she was conceived via in vitro fertilization. It’s all very on-brand for this alterna-young person.
