Cardi B has been dipping her toe into the political spectrum for a little while now. Previously she went off on the government shutdown when she let us know about how the people in charge needed to get their shit together. While the government is no longer shut down, the message to get shit together still stands–and so Cardi B has decided to really take a step further towards bettering our society. Recently, she sat down with Democratic Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders to talk politics, because that’s where we’re at now. Why not? Like, we may as well?
Ok, that headline is a bit misleading and I feel bad for it, because sadly Taylor Swift is not coming out full force for Pride by declaring her love for puss (as far as we know she’s still strictly dickly and only dabbles in her love for pussy via her cats Olivia Benson, Meredith Grey and newest addition, kitten Benjamin Button. Yes, I hate myself for knowing the names of Taylor Swift’s cats). So sorry, Taylor and Karlie “shippers.”
But after months of speaking out for gay rights, Taylor is emerging as a full fledged LGBTQIA+ ally by kicking off Pride Month with a “stick it where the sun don’t shine” letter to Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander in support of the Equality Act and a rainbow infused performance at yesterday’s Wango Tango concert. Taylor, you little ROYGBIV baby giraffe.
Step aside John F. Kennedy and
Marilyn Monroe Jackie O – shit, OK – JKF and Marilyn and Jackie O, there’s a new celebrity couple on the political scene. Sadly it’s not a reuniting of the ghost of Tom Hayden and 1980s Jane Fonda in full-on spandex and double leg warmer workout video mode. It’s Rosario Dawson and Cory Booker, y’all! After a couple months of speculation, Rosario has confirmed that she’s sprung on US Senator and 2020 vegan presidential candidate Cory.
The most bullied person in the world Melania Trump is finally speaking out about that tacky as fuck Zara jacket that she wore in June during her visit to the facility housing children separated from their immigrant parents on the US-Mexico border. Melania gave an interview to ABC News that aired last night, and she was able to skirt around a few issues, including how she felt about Trump’s numerous affairs and that Access Hollywood “grab ’em by the Kit-Kat” tape. But one issue she did come clean about is THAT JACKET and why the crap she decided to wear it on her visit to the children’s detention center, when she should have just worn her 101 Dalmatians puppy fur coat instead.
The writers of Saturday Night Live must’ve been chilling out on a tropical beach somewhere sipping margis and jet skiing sans helmets ahead of scripting the premier episode of SNL, because during the past week’s political shit show in Washington, DC, the jokes practically wrote themselves. Most people tuning in last night were expecting a rip on the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, and last night’s Cold Open did just that, with Matt Damon stepping into the starring role of Brett “I Love Beer” Kavanaugh.
Just this morning, Sarah Jessica Parker officially endorsed Cynthia Nixon for Governor of New York. It took her a minute to make her approval Instagram official, but she got there. SJP may still have beef with Kim Cattrall but it seems that Cynthia is A-OK in her book. Phew, Cynthia can move forward now that she’s secured the only endorsement that counts (suck it, Oprah. Don’t nobody need you here!).
