Lena Waithe And Her Wife Are Splitting After Just Two Months Of Marriage Amid Rumors She Might Have Cheated With Cynthia Erivo
Just two months ago, Lena Waithe (actor, writer, and producer) and her girlfriend Alana Mayo (producer and former VP at Paramount) announced that they had secretly gotten married on a whim when they were driving by San Francisco City Hall. Cut to Wednesday and Lena and Alana are releasing a joint statement announcing their impending divorce. I was not aware that lesbians and U-haul jokes worked in reverse! According to Bossip, rumors are now swirling that the quickie marriage and subsequent quickie dis-marriage were due to “multiple instances of Lena’s infidelity.” And there are also rumors that Lena yelled “To freedom!” as she dove on top of Harriet Tubman herself, Cynthia Erivo.
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.
You can always count on any BET red carpet to provide some high fashion “moments”, and last night’s BET Awards was no exception. The MET Gala would have been smart to reference “BET red carpet” when trying to get clueless celebrities to grasp the concept of camp. RuPaul’s zebra suit would have looked right at home given the profusion of sequins, pastels, neon, and sculptural pieces that walked the BET carpet. For example, take aspiring rapper/entrepreneur/wig maker to the stars Cliff Vmir (above). His title alone is plenty camp, but throw in a chartreuse vinyl jumpsuit and top it off with a day-glo Victorian fringed lampshade, you’ve got a weenie roast with s’mores for dessert.
