Week of 1/1/2018
1. HE BACK.
I mean if you’re gonna do the Super Bowl halftime show ya gotta have fresh music not associated with a Pixar movie and that’s pretty obvious. I was waiting for the announcement and having it come with the New Year did not disappoint. Is this video really weird? Yeah. Did I think we were about to get like a folk album with the way he’s talking about becoming one with the earth and his roots? Absolutely. It didn’t matter though. All that mattered is we’re getting new music from JT and Pharell thinks it’s dope. Cut to today when we have our very first single and it is NOT what I was expecting. Total curveball to be like I went back to Tennessee to find myself and live in the woods like Manbearpig and then drop a futuristic video about robots set to a funky beat. HUH?
So we’ve got this Steve Jobs lookin JT and then we have a robot breaking it down for a bunch of Asians and simulating sex with hoochie dancers. WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH THE ROBOTS? First Tay with Ready for It and now you lay this shit on me, JT? Is this a sign? Is 2018 the year we get taken over by robots? No comprendo. I can get on board with the song. I can’t get on board with the robots. Case closed.
2. That’s not hot.
Paris Hilton got engaged and we can all fawn over how big that ring is because obviously why would she get anything smaller but like come on. It’s ridiculous. I’m personally not into the pear shaped diamond to begin with but whatever shape that came in, a ring that big looks like it was picked up at a goodwill store while shopping for gaudy costumes, not a 20 carat diamond that cost $2 million. It takes over her whole hand and couldn’t be any more obnoxious than this tweet:
3. Carrie Underwood is fine.
Carrie released a statement to her fans this week about an accident that she had in November when she like slid on ice or something at home. Apparently she has been in hiding since the incident (who knew…) and suffered a facial injury that required 40-50 stitches and she warned everyone that she might not look the same but she’s grateful to be ok. Naturally everyone on this planet (me) immediately started furiously searching for pictures of said mangled face, knowing that she was probably being dramatic and SERIOUSLY…SHE LOOKS EXACTLY THE SAME.
Unless there’s some mouth trauma going on causing that closed mouth smile, I cannot imagine how she could release a statement preparing her fans for like half of her face to be gone or something. We can all calm down now. Also, her legs were unharmed in this entire tragedy and that’s all that really matters.
4. Hoda’s Time 2 Shine.
Since that rat Matt Lauer left, ratings have gone up on the Today Show because every mom in America (including my own) switched back from GMA to enjoy a morning show not bogged down by a perv. There was a lot of kerfuffle about Matt Lauer not only sexually assualting all of the females but pushing out all of the male anchors so that his spot couldn’t be taken, which is fitting for his turd personality and therefore everyone was like OMG WHOSE GOING TO TAKE HIS SPOT?! Also please read this all with the most sarcasm in the world because I honestly forgot they were looking to replace Matt until the announcement was made this week but obviously mah gurl Hoda got the top spot and everyone is happy except for the sexist pigs of the world. Hoda’s fun and personable and cute and puts up with KLG hammered every day during the 10AM block so she deserves the hell out of this. Also don’t you dare sass about it on twitter cause Al “I pooped my pants in the white house” Roker will clap back at yo ass, BARB.
5. Bye 2017.
Look, you guys know when I’m searching for a 5th headline for the weekly JUice and I’m mailing it in. Let’s not tiptoe around it. I got nothin. So here’s a video of Cal from Timeflies covering the top songs of 2017 and getting rocked in the face with confetti by Rez.
And here’s a picture of my girl Demi stuntin that bod confidence. Why? Because you know how much I love her at the mo, and I’m just so proud of her progress. Just one friend believing in another. 2018 will be Demi’s year.
And that’s all I got for ya. Don’t forget the Golden Globes are this Sunday and everyone will be wearing black to royally F up my Red Carpet blog…or to make a statement about sexual assault in Hollywood, either one. Tune in so we can all trash it together on Monday.
