Kehlani Trended On Twitter After Conservative Influencer Christian Walker Posted A Video Of Their Altercation In A Starbucks Drive-Thru
Don’t call staunch Donald Trump defender, self-proclaimed Christian “conservative-populist,” “free-speech radicalist,” and internet “personality” (emphasis mine) Christian Walker gay, because even though he’s attracted to men, he’s not into labels and refuses to “identify with the rainbow cult.” So yeah, he sounds like an asshole but don’t call him that either, as singer Kehlani did when she warned the workers at a Starbucks drive-thru that Christian was behind them, becoming apoplectic over seeing Pride flags in July. In what was THEE story of the day yesterday, Christian posted a video of himself getting out of his car to berate a spectacularly unbothered Kehlani for warning employees that Christian was a known asshole and that it looked like he was about to start some shit judging by what she could see in their rearview mirror of him plotzing and frothing at the mouth while recording on his phone.
The 2021 Billboard Music Awards were last night and since things are “getting back to normal” (whatever that means), it was a maskless affair. But honestly, I wish Machine Gun Kelly was forced to wear a mask because then we wouldn’t see his black-stained tongue, which made him look like he tossed the salad of The Tar Monster from Scooby-Doo.
I don’t know about you, but I had a perfectly good and normal weekend curled up in a fetal position in the shower glugging down a bottle of special occasion “End Times” wine in between racking sobs. Basically, I didn’t do shit. But as Kristian mentioned earlier, quite a few celebrities spent the weekend out in the streets with Black Lives Matter, protesting police brutality, spurred by the recent murders of George Floyd and Breanna Taylor by the police. Some of them didn’t even post about it on social media, they just showed up! But many more took to their notes apps instead to express their solidarity with the BLM movement. Billie Eilish took aim at #AllLivesMatter types telling them to “shut the fuck up.” And Lady Gaga came for Donald Trump, accusing him of “fueling a system that is already rooted in racism.” And the always outspoken Pink!, well she just re-posted Billie’s post. But it’s the thought that counts! #thoughtsandprayers.
Over the weekend, many celebrities spoke up about the Black Lives Matter demonstrations brought on after the police killing of George Floyd. Some celebrities even took part in the protests. Lana Del Rey was having a rough week with the black community, so maybe she decided to show she was sorry by going to a protest herself? Well, it didn’t end up going as well as you’d think, as she posted some incriminating video of protestors to her Instagram and got called out by Tinashe and Kehlani. Wait until they find out she dated a cop.
Earlier this year when Lana Del Rey turned up at the Grammys rocking what looked like a $40 Chico’s dress and makeup that she clearly did herself in the bumpy cab ride over, it seemed pretty obvious that the girl has no stylist. Well, apparently she also doesn’t seem to have a publicist because nobody is stepping in to stop her from tweeting her career down the toilet. If anybody in the LDR camp is listening: head over to Lana’s bedroom, turn down the Doja Cat record, slap the Marlboro Lite out of her hand, and take her phone away!
A couple of days ago, Lana Del Rey proved that she doesn’t actually spend 14 hours a day sitting at a vintage vanity, brushing her hair a million times while blowing pink lipglossed kisses to a bottle of Valium. Lana had some things to say on Instagram about her position in the female pop singer pyramid, and so she wrote out a long piece on the matter and posted it to Instagram. According to Lana, she’s on the bottom row; supporting everyone above her while getting zero recognition for her efforts.
The internet took notice, not because they agreed that Lana was underrated and underappreciated, but because Lana chose to single out many high-profile women of color in her quest for success. Lana has responded to all the social media side-eye she received yesterday, and she would like everyone to know her message absolutely 100% did not come from a place of racism, and it’s the media who turned her Instagram post into a me-vs-them situation.
