If I’ve learned anything covering awards shows over the past few years, it’s that we, as a society, need to wake up and realize that we are on the verge of a cataclysmic sea-change that threatens to collapse all that we hold dear about awards shows. Forget global warming; there’s nothing we can do about that now (sorry, Greta et al). The peril we currently face has nothing to do with carbon emissions. André Leon Talley tried to warm us of this impending disaster. But did we listen? No. And now, tragically, we’ve allowed a dangerous build-up of too much fashion to occur. Right before our very eyes. And if something isn’t done to mitigate this awards fashion disaster, immediately, we risk losing the very carpet upon which they play out. I don’t even think Andre, in all his great wisdom, could have predicted that (still?) it-girl Anya Taylor-Joy would be personally responsible for 68% of the noxious plumes of excess fashion at last night’s BAFTA Awards, the runoff of which is polluting the Thames with a literal blanket of velvety tan sludge.
R. Kelly’s Crisis Manager Resigned After Saying He Wouldn’t Leave His Daughter Alone With His Former Client
Remember that crisis manager of R. Kelly‘s who was doing such a good job and fixed R. Kelly’s life? He quit, or maybe got fired, depending on who you ask. This is surprising considering all the good work he accomplished for R. Kelly. But after an interview where R. Kelly’s crisis manager Darrell Johnson said he wouldn’t leave his daughter alone with his client, he parted ways with Team Pissy.
I suspect that the events of November 8, 2016 sent a lot of us running for the nearest bar. Some sheltered in place under their couches, while others were sent running for the couch at their therapist’s office. No matter your politics, that day was a doozy and it had a lot of us shook. James Franco, America’s busiest beaver, had himself a good old fashioned “come to Jesus” moment.
