Before last night’s American Music Awards (or as many refer to it as, “That show’s still on?”) even began there was some Chris Brown-related drama. Chris was supposed to perform in a tribute to Michael Jackson but the whole thing was tossed into the dumpster at the last minute for reasons unknown. Maybe one of the reasons was that executives got a clue and realized Chris Brown singing Beat It on their stage might not be the best look. Even though Chris’ performance was canceled, it wasn’t a Chris Brown-free night at the AMAs. He won an award and the audience responded by booing Chris Brown for being Chris Brown. Chris wasn’t there to flip them off, but thankfully for him, Kelly Rowland was there to defend poor little Chris Brown.
Now we know why Disney decided to do an all-CGI remake (although, it’s supposed to be GAME CHANGING!) of their cartoon movie The Lion King. It isn’t just because those greedy overlords at Disney knew that they could throw their logo on any summertime movie and it’ll allow them to say, “Sure, order four!”, with ease when Mickey Mouse calls asking if he can order another crate of vintage Dom Perignon while partying with his side-hos and Leonardo DiCaprio on his yacht in Italy somewhere. They knew that if they got Beyonce to graciously possess the body of a CGI Nala with her ethereal holiness, they might also get her to make an entire Lion King album, and then they’d make even more money.
Well, Mickey Mouse can go ahead and make it rain $1,000 cashiers checks instead of $100 bills on his yacht girls this summer, because Beyonce (and her ghost curators) has curated an entire album inspired by The Lion King.
Sometimes I think people hover over their laptops just waiting for a moment to call out celebrities with their shenanigans, even when there’s nothing wrong. I blame Trump. Then again I blame Trump for everything, but that’s another story for another time. Anyway, in today’s episode of Bitch Please former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland is taking time out of her schedule of doing whatever to clapback like Cleo in Set It Off at internet idiots who are suggesting she bleaches her skin.
And don’t think the spotlight wattage isn’t going to be juuussstt a tad lower for Kelly and Michelle if this is the truth.
Page Six claims that Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and the other one (I kid, her name is Michelle Williams) might revive Destiny’s Child on Coachella’s main stage during Beyonce’s headline set tonight. They haven’t sung live together since they performed Michelle’s song “Say Yes” at the 2015 Stellar Awards. You know this is happening because celebrity historian Cardi B’s baby belly has been getting all the press lately…
The American Music Awards aired on CBS last night in order for you to have something to talk about with your weird cousin Trisha over Thanksgiving weekend. The AMA’s are the perfect empty vessel in which to hold your familial conversational obligations. That said, a few attendees did come to slay. Like Hailee Steinfeld, who, thanks to that leather bra and sharp shoulder pad situation, is seen giving you The Bodyguard starring a young Joan Crawford.
Second-tier Destiny’s Child member and Diddy wig inspiration Kelly Rowland believes that a gal should know if her dude has had a penis (other than his own) in his life before getting on her. Kelly is in the middle of whoring out a Lifetime movie she’s in, called Love By The 10th Date (SUCH a Lifetime movie title). It’s about relationships, and there’s a bisexuality/men on the “down low” plot line. So Kelly gingerly dipped her toe in Vivica A. Fox’s pool who may have sounded “just the teensiest-tiniest bit homophobic” during an interview with the New York Post.
