Seen above in the same kind of duck lips-throwing “shot from above” selfie that my aunties always post on Facebook, Adele added yet another trophy to her piles of trophies when she won an Emmy this past weekend for her TV special Adele: One Night Only. Winning an Emmy put Adele just one letter closer to EGOT and she only needs to win a Tony now. Adele also got a little company in The We Just Need A Tony To EGOT Club this weekend, because Eminem, Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr also won Emmys and are also just a T away from EGOT. So prepare yourselves for an Adele, Eminem, Sir Paul, and Sir Ringo collab called 21 Mile At Abbey Road: THE BROADWAY MUSICAL!
And while celebrating reaching EGO status on Instagram, Adele’s fans noticed a customized game on her coffee table that they believe could be a clue that she married her boyfriend of more than a year, sports agent Rich Paul.
The Musicians on Musicians feature in Rolling Stone gets a sparkly infusion from the seemingly random pairing of Taylor Swift and Paul McCartney in the December 2020 issue. On the cover, Taylor Swift is cosplaying Han Solo and working some Nellie Oleson bangs while Sir Paul makes a face that says, “I’m as confused by this pairing as you are,” and inside, Taylor talks to Paul about her boyfriend of four years, Joe Alwyn:
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
