What we don’t need is for the screenwriter who failed to include Freddie Mercury’s coke dwarf in Bohemian Rhapsody, teaming up with the hologram peddling Houston Estate and Clive fucking Davis to bring us yet another movie about Whitney Houston only this time with the added insult of some poor actress trying to play her. But we’re getting it anyway. 2020 hates us for real.
1950s nostalgia was already gross and weird in the ‘70s and ‘80s so it makes perfect sense to bring it back once again for #thesetryingtimes. TVLine reports that HBO Max is working on a TV show called Grease: Rydell High “a musical spinoff of the iconic movie.” But really, wasn’t Glee enough, or do we really have to add unspoken segregation and hot rods into the mix? Let me not give Lea Michele any ideas. Lea, you’re too old to be Sandy and don’t pull that “but Olivia Newton John was… wah wah wah” bullshit with me!
After the embarrassment that was Man Of The Woods, I naively hoped we might have all caught a break there, and Justin Timberlake would walk his happy ass into the wilderness where he and wife Jessica Biel could live out the rest of their days footloose and vaccine-free. Unfortunately, bespoke camo suits don’t come cheap, and apparently, Justin needs a way to keep his family’s mouths full of fudge. According to Billboard, Justin dropped a hint on Twitter about a possible collaboration with Lizzo. Look at Justin trying to get him some of Lizzo’s juice, smh.
Woody Allen has recently come out and said he never plans on retiring and he will probably die on a film set. And I think what’s really got people annoyed is the “never retiring” part.
In case you missed it, David Letterman’s luscious pepaw beard is still making regular appearances on Netflix by way of his interview show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. The first season of that show proved its title with Barack Obama as the inaugural guest. But it looks like things have gone way downhill since then. Season two will start streaming on May 31st, and David’s first guest will be Kanye West. Sure, people know who Kanye is, but I for one would like at least a little bit of an introduction explaining why. Does Kanye have anything new or insightful to share? According to The Daily Beast, the answer is no. Kanye’s still cuckoo for Trump and is accusing liberals of bullying Trump supporters.
Will Smith is making the biggest mistake of his career (and that includes when he inexplicably went after the elderly in the song “You saw my blinker, bitch“) and trying to reprise the iconic role of the Genie in Aladdin. Everyone knows that role forever belongs to Robin Williams and the only person who can play that role is NO ONE and/or the ghost of Robin Williams.
Will has taken some heat not only for reprising the role but for the look of the Genie and it even became a brief meme sensation. He’s taken all it all in stride and says he finds the memes funny and he’s learning all about the internets.
