I think that when the clock struck 12 midnight on January 1 everyone should have grabbed a stick of sage and burned it all day as to not welcome any foolishness into 2021. And then January 6th came, causing all of the sage in the world to snicker at our fuckery. Well, in the event there’s another planet we can all collectively ruin we’ll need guidance from the original Tik Tok-er Kesha, whose New Year’s resolution is apparently to become the Jeanne Dixon of alien summoning since her latest hobby includes looking beyond the stars to invite E.T. and all of his homies down for some cocktails and conversation. And the idea all started after a talk with “Cashing in on Chaos” Queen Demi Lovato.
Coronavirus begat Gal Gadot asking the Tone Deaf Avengers to Imagine a world where irony does not exist. Not to be outshone, for the occasion of the Black Lives Matter movement, we will be subjected to a barrage of actors emoting about racism while serving black and white Stanislavsky turtleneck Inside The Actors Studio earnestness. In a video for a new initiative called I Take Responsibility, “a cadre of stars staring directly into cameras as they pledge to take responsibility for how they’ve perpetuated racism or allowed it to go on in their presence.” (via The Hollywood Reporter). But don’t get too excited, nobody gets too specific. But we do get to hear Justin Theroux take responsibility for “every not so funny joke,” something you’ll never hear from me! #ITakeNoResponsibilityWhatsoever
Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald has won a legal battle against Kesha. Not-A-Real-Doctor Luke is going after Kesha for a variety of things related to her rape accusations against him. Well, a judge has ruled that Kesha did defame Dr. Luke when she accused him of raping Katy Perry, which Katy Perry denied, in text messages to Lady Gaga, and now she has to fork over more than $300,000 to him.
It’s not that the Grammys are for your parents, the Grammys are your parents. Old, strict, self-serious, adore Adele, and are prone to making arbitrary decisions like letting JLo perform a Motown medley. Just ask Halsey who basically yelled at them “you’re not the boss of me” during her acceptance speech last night at the American Music Awards. The AMAs are your cool, twice-divorced aunt who taught you how to french inhale and has a lover in Madrid who she visits every Spring. As such, she’s a lot more fun. But unlike your parents who actually clothe, house, and feed your ungrateful ass, her gifts are frivolous and tacky. But fun! That dynamic was reflected in the red carpet looks from last night’s AMAs. Risks were taken. Choices were made. For example, OG fun aunt Christina Aguilera showed up looking like a goddamn snack. A saltine cracker, specifically. Which is a shame because believe me, most of the people there were already very, very thirsty.
Well, it looks like Taylor Swift‘s invitation writing hand is sore today after furiously crossing Lady Gaga‘s name off the guest list to her annual Fourth of July / Katy Perry is a Big Fatty Meanie Party. After old texts between Kesha and Gaga were released as part of the Dr. Luke investigation shit show, Gaga is taking back what she said about Katy.
Olive branch be damned – Lady Gaga and Kesha just earned themselves a massive “TOLD YA SO!” bouquet of roses from Taylor Swift. In the ongoing Dr. Luke saga of him being a general asshole and alleged abuser to Kesha, Gaga forked over any relevant evidence in his defamation case against Kesha. The evidence included texts between Kesha and Gaga about the case. The texts were previously blacked out, but the uncensored ones were made public and in them, Gaga and Kesha take a major swipe at Katy Perry and what sounds like her nonexistent backbone.
