This is our fault. We did this to ourselves. At some point we’re going to have to take responsibility for ourselves as a country and accept the premise that it is, in fact, a shit hole ruled by oligarchs, grifters, charlatans, and DJs with Marshmello heads, and hopefully, commit to making the changes necessary to rectify that. Otherwise, all is lost. Even if Forbes’ Celebrity 100: The World’s Highest Paid Celebrities list is a dubious distinction, we have to admit that even if their formula is about as scientifically sound as the teachings of Dianetics, it does say a lot about what we value as a culture. And right now it’s saying we value Kylie Jenner the most. She earned $560 million. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but 2020 will do strange things to a person—Taylor Swift was ROBBED! Last year’s #1 dropped to #25 ($63.5M) and Kanye West scooted into Kylie’s former #2 slot with $170M.
The Sunday Times Rich List. A thing I just heard of today. Apparently it’s like the Forbes List, but British. Yay. Ranking ridiculously rich people. Woohoo. There’s a bunch of different categories, so even more multi-millionaires can feel special. These lists include the richest people in Film & Television, Husbands and Wives, Sports Stars, Aristocrats, and more.
Rihanna, who’s lived in London for more than a year, decided to grace the Richest Musicians list with her beauty and glamour, debuting at #3. She’s right behind Andrew Lloyd Weber and Paul McCartney, who are tied at #1. Poor ALW. Now he’s got Patti LuPone AND Rihanna on his ass. Continue reading
We’ve all enjoyed a good tune from time to time by The Beatles, but I’ve never really connected with them like my parents did. That all changed this morning! Coming straight from the Quincy Jones school of no fucks left to give, Paul McCartney gave an interview that probably has daughter Stella McCartney sobbing from embarrassment into a crate of environmentally friendly chiffon at her design studio. Paul says that back in the day and before they were world-famous Beatles, he and John Lennon were just typical horny boys who liked to play with their trouser Yellow Submarines, er, trouser snakes. They were so boned once (or twice!) that Paul says he, John, and a group of friends jerked off together!
Yesterday, the teenagers who survived the Parkland inspired people in over 800 cities across the world to stand up and march for gun control reform here in the bullet-wounded U.S. Celebs joined in too, one of them being Sir Paul McCartney. Sir Paul joined the march in NYC, and CNN asked him what he thought the protests could accomplish. He referenced his friend and fellow Beatle John Lennon, shot to death in front of his apartment building in NYC in December of 1980. Continue reading
Earlier this month, there were rumors of an old man feud on the set of Homeland between F. Murray Abraham and Mandy Patinkin. There must be something in the Ensure, because now here’s another story about two old legends fighting. But this one isn’t a rumor. Phil Collins has made it clear that he hates Paul McCartney.
Many of us would probably rather sit through an audit by the IRS while wearing Crocs than sit at a party hosted by gross slug Tyga, but not Paul McCartney, Beck and Taylor Hawkins from Foo Fighters. Tyga hosted a Grammys after-party last night at the Argyle and Paul, Beck and Taylor apparently tried to get in but were denied by the door people. When Paul and company were turned away, he joked, “How VIP do we gotta get?” and “We need another hit, guys!”
I don’t know if it’s embarrassing or a compliment to get denied from that salamander douche’s party. I’ll go with the latter. You’re probably wondering why would Paul want to go to that salamander douches party. I came up with 3 reasons:
1. Paul is a down-low Scientologist and he and Beck were trying to steal Tyga away from that “other” cult (the Kardashians).
2. Paul is losing it.
3. Paul was confused and thought that “Tyga” is short for “La Tigresa del Oriente” and who wouldn’t want to go to La Tigresa del Oriente’s party?
But apparently, none of those reasons are right. The Argyle tells TMZ that Paul got shit mixed up and was trying to go to Mark Ronson’s party at Hyde. When he figured out he was at the wrong club, he left. Even though the video shows them getting turned away, the Argyle claims they would’ve let them in if they wanted in.
Here’s the sad, sad scene brought to you by TMZ:
It does make sense that Paul was turned away from Tyga’s party. I mean, to get into a party hosted by Tyga, you either have to be a teenage girl or you have to BYOTDTPOTANR (Bring Your Own Teenage Daughter To Pimp Out To A Nobody Rapper).
