“Subtle” was redefined yesterday when Taylor Swift burped up the news that she’s releasing new versions of two songs from her album Midnights. TayTay announced that she and Lana Del Rey recorded a new version of their song Snow on the Beach and that she and IT rapper of the moment, Ice Spice, did a remix of her song Karma. Many have stamped the latter collab with the words “DAMAGE CONTROL” since TayTay’s current poo (typo and it stays), Matty Healy, laughed at racist comments about Ice Spice on a podcast. And while some Swifties have once again defended their savior over this, others are adding this damage control jewel to TayTay’s Queen of Performative Acts crown.
I don’t want anybody to get too excited: The prediction I’m about to make may be premature, as it is based solely on the pretentious Art fumes wafting off of Zoë Kravitz’ recent interview with GQ in which she touches on falling in love with Channing Tatum, the star of her upcoming feminist directorial debut, over their shared passion for Art, not long after the dissolution of her marriage Karl Glusman, and disputes the idea that “nepo babies” are any different from regular babies that go into the same business as their parents. I mean, I obviously hope and pray that we have another Don’t Worry Darling situation on our hands with Pussy Island, but I’m not quite ready to start taking bets. I know the odds are grim, so for now, I’m just floating the idea in case I get the chance to scream, “I TOLD YOU SO!” when, a year from now, we’re all losing our collective shit when Geena Davis shows up late to the Venice Film Festival swirling an Aperol Spritz.
Honestly, I can’t believe people are still talking about that time Will Smith fucked with his career by playing Patty Cake with Chris Rock‘s face at the Oscars. And although Will is still trying to convince us that he’s sorry, we’ve all moved on and no longer care. Unfortunately for Zoe Kravitz, she says realized just a little too late she should have remained silent in the slap’s aftermath (the Slaps-termath?) and now wishes she never said anything in the first place because we’re living in a time when having an opinion can get you dragged all over social media.
Mary J. Blige, Keanu Reeves, Zendaya, Joe Rogan And Kris Jenner All Made The Time 100 List Of The World’s Most Influential People
Last year Prince Harry and Meghan Markle graced the cover of Time Magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world and since then, have done jack shit in the way of influence. They were featured in the Icons section, but those tricks can’t even launch an Instagram page let alone a revolution. So Time gave them the year off to get their shit together and Mary J. Blige has taken their place as the face of the Time 100’s Icons section. Mary shares the honor with Issa Rae, Keanu Reeves, Jon Batiste, and Adele plus a couple of people who actually worked for the accolade. And because you can’t even get the “Uh” out of Adele without James Corden popping up out of nowhere like a singing telegram sent by the devil himself, James wrote Adele’s intro and used it as an excuse to brag about her “singing in the kitchen, or belting at the top of her voice solely to make [his] children laugh.” It’s like, we get it, James, she’s your bestie. But if she’s so influential, then explain what happened to your career?
After Zoë Kravitz split up from her husband of fewer than two years, Karl Gusman, she rebounded with Channing Tatum. 33-year-old Zoë and 41-year-old Channing have been together since around summer last year after they worked together on a film that Zoë directed called Pussy Island. But according to Us Weekly’s sources, this isn’t some kind of casual thing and you probably won’t find a newly-single Zoë and a possibly-single Lisa Bonet hitting up a club together to pick up new pieces (since yes, Zoë and Lisa are totally the mom and daughter version of The Roxbury Guys). Because Zoë and Channing see themselves heading into ~serious~ territory.
Zoë Kravitz Again Mentions How She Was Told She Was Too “Urban” To Audition For “The Dark Knight Rises” (UPDATE)
Zoë Kravitz is currently starring as Catwoman in Matt Reeves‘The Batman, and she could’ve been part of the Batman-verse years ago. Because back when The Dark Knight Rises was being made a decade ago, Zoë tried to audition for a role. However, she was told no. Why? Because according to some
racists casting people, Zoë was too “urban.” And as we know, the only “urban” casting people like is Urban Outfitters.
