Prince William And Princess Kate Sat Courtside At A Boston Celtics Game Last Night, And They Were Booed
Prince William and Princess Kate’s Caribbean tour earlier this year went over about as well as a Black woman who isn’t a first-generation African immigrant existing in Lady Hussey’s presence–which is not well at all–so as we know, they decided to take a working trip to somewhere known to be FAR more friendly and welcoming: Boston. Kate and William are in the city to attend the Earthshot Prize Awards and decided to go on a field trip to a Boston Celtics game where they sat courtside; because where else can you see Bostonians at their very dignified best than at one of their professional teams’ sporting events? But some Bostonians weren’t amused and welcomed the royals with boos and chants of “USA!”
Rihanna, who turned down the Halftime show a few years back because of the NFL‘s treatment of Colin Kaepernick, has changed her mind and will headline the Super Bowl LVII Halftime show. That news came after the rumor that Taylor Swift was in talks to headline was shot down as false. The RiRi news is interesting considering fans have been waiting for new music for YEARS. No wonder there have been pap photos of her at the recording studio recently; she probably signed up for this and was like: “Oh shit! That reggae album I told everybody I was working on!”
While there’s no crying in the teaser trailer for Amazon’s upcoming A League of Their Own series, there is some flirting which apparently is allowed in baseball. According to TVLine, the show “takes a deeper look at race and sexuality,” than the 1992 Penny Marshall-directed film of the same name that inspired it. This is rude because that’s Madonna’s entire reason for living and she isn’t even involved in this one!
Camila Cabello Got Booed By Fans At The Champions League Final And Tweeted That They Were “Very Rude”
On Saturday night, 80,000 fans arrived at the Stade de France in Paris to cheer on Camila Cabello as she performed a 5-minute medley of her biggest hits. JK, they were actually there for the 2022 UEFA Champions League football (the Ted Lasso kind, not the Superbowl kind) final between Liverpool and Real Madrid. Camila just happened to be the opening musical act. Unfortunately for many Liverpool fans, organizational fuckery and French security prevented them from entering the stadium; some were even tear-gassed outside the venue. Camila’s performance and the kick-off were delayed three times. Eventually, the UEFA decided to get on with the show, even though there were still empty seats and stranded fans. So how do we think Liverpool fans reacted to Camila Cabello’s performance? If you guessed “not well, bitch,” you would be correct. Continue reading
Pink Offered To Pay The Fine That The Norwegian Women’s Handball Team Received For Breaking The Bikini Dress Code
Last week the Norwegian women’s beach handball team got in official shit for wearing “improper clothing” in a match against Spain. No, this has nothing to do with the Olympics; the team was playing in the European Beach Handball Championships, which is run by the European Handball Federation (EHF). The EHF’s dress code states that female teams must play in sports bra-style tops and bikini bottoms (even though the men’s handball teams get to wear tanks and full shorts). At the beginning of the tournament, the Norwegian women petitioned to ditch the bikini bottoms and wear the shorts they train in, but the EHF threatened them with fines or disqualification. But by the time they made it to the bronze medal game against Spain (which they lost, oops), the ladies decided enough was enough. They wore shorts in protest of the dress code and were fined 1,500 euros (about $1,700).
Pink read this story, looked at all the cash, diamonds, and gold bars stacked in various corners of her mansion, and tweeted that she’d be happy to pay the team’s fines. She added that the EHF are the ones that should be fined, for sexism!
Golf is typically some busted lullaby shit to have on as background noise via YouTube when it’s 3:26 a.m. and you’re wide awake eating cold, leftover Mapo tofu while panicking over having to give a video presentation on no sleep at 5:30 a.m. to your colleagues in Minsk. The only time golf has ever been remotely interesting in the past is because of Tiger Woods being a hot mess in his personal life and not because the game itself can hold anyone’s attention span worth a damn.
Today, all of that has changed, because a bizarrely brazen golf fan (none of those words belong together, ever) has turned the dull AF sport on its head by inserting the snappy element of thievery into the mix when he helped himself, in front of God and zillions of witnesses, to one of player Rory McIlroy‘s golf clubs at the Scottish Open on Friday. Step aside, Tiger’s dumpster fire of a personal life, because there’s a new golf scandal in town!
