Week of 5/18/2020
1. Another One Bites The Dust.
Megan Fox was seen gallivanting around with Machine Gun Kelly recently so rumors started swirling about her and Brian Austin Green getting a divorce. Brian then used his podcast to announce that they’ve been separated for months and it’s all good. They want to Hollywood new-age co-parent and do vacays together and shit and they love each other but Megan Fox just realized when she was in another country filming a movie (coincidentally with Machine Gun Kelly) that she just liked being a single gal without kids and living it up so that doesn’t really mean GREAT things for their marriage, obviously. Since then, she has basically confirmed that she’s boning MGK (how do skinny wieners like Machine Gun Kelly and Pete Davidson consistently pull in hot older woman ass? A burning question that may never be answered) via the new music video he dropped this week. As much as I want to hate this song, it grows on you. And now I think it kinda slaps. Does this make me an MGK fan?
If you want my personal opinion–that’s why you’re here, right?–Megan Fox is overrated as hell, stinks as an actress because all she ever does is play the hot girl with basically no inflection or personality and Brian Austin Green deserves to find a forever Donna to his David. And that’s the tea.
2. Warm Fuzzy of the Week.
If you watch the above videos, you’ll see that some little kid gave his neighborhood FedEx driver a skateboard and told him to get it to Tony Hawk. Natch, all it took was the FedEx driver’s TikTok to go viral and Tony Hawk replied with a shoutout to the kid as well as one of his skateboards. I don’t often post adorable things that celebrities do because I’m so busy ridiculing them for being idiots and/or rubbing their fame and fortune in our faces or in the case of Taylor Swift, begging her to notice me and sweep me up in her BFF entourage. Regardless, this was a real win for Tony Hawk and for TikTok, which gets a bad rep for all the underage hoochies dancin on it. I also really posted this story so that I could share what I just discovered this week–which is that Tony Hawk uses his Twitter primarily to tell stories about people who don’t have a clue who he is and that is very entertaining to me. So not only is Tony Hawk a real stand-up gent, he’s also got a great sense of humor and obviously shreds gnar ollies. (Did I do that right, Mr. Hawk?)
3. Trainwreck Divorce Update.
It may come as no shock, but Very Cavallari has been cancelled along with Kristin’s marriage. Did E! Executives say: we don’t want a reality show without that sarcastic sassy hubs of yours? Maybe. Or maybe Kristin realized letting a reality show back into her life wouldn’t fit the narrative of all the mud she’s been slinging about Jay to the press. Either way, the world will have to live without a show that highlights a girl named Brittainy (because of course it’s spelled that way) prancing all over Nashville with maximum cleavage at all times. She will be missed. Unfortunately this also leaves the door wide open for Kristin to sashay back onto the Hills because she now fits the bill perfectly for that reboot of washed up moms who still want to act like they’re 23 at Les Deux. Playboy Spence is campaigning HARD to get her back on The Hills and I’m just not sure if I’m mentally or emotionally prepared for that. Don’t get me wrong, if it happens, I’ll watch, but I won’t enjoy it.
Also, since we can’t go a few days without an update on their divorce proceedings (or questioning if Kristin gave herself a mother’s day tribute from Jay’s instagram…gotta respect the hustle) I also made a note in my phone to mention that they’re basically giving their house in Nashville away. They bought it for 7.9 million, they’re selling it for 5 million. YOOIIIIIKES. That’s gotta hurt.
4. Stop Declaring the Song of the Summer in May.
As 1/2 of the famous duo that CURATED the soundtrack to the summer for 10 straight years also known as Summer Palooza, I can confidently say that if you declare a song the SONG OF THE SUMMER in May, you’ll regret it by end of June. I know this, because I too have fallen prey to this trap. The ONLY exception to this rule was the year JT dropped Can’t Stop the Feeling. It was a diamond in the rough considering it was made for a Trolls movie, but that was the SINGULAR scenario where I excitedly trumped it the song of the summer and it was INDEED the SONG OF THE SUMMER. So anyway, I now present to you, songs that were released this week(ish) that are most certainly not THE SONG OF THE SUMMER. If you beg and plead hard enough, maybe Nikki and I will bring Summer Palooza out of retirement if only to give you bitches a lesson in what qualifies as a three-month long seasonal slap.
5. Good News is worth a lot of Cheddar.
Remember the Youtube show that John Krasinski made during this pandemic that has everyone buzzing every week? I’ve blogged about it strictly for Office cast reunions, but basically John Krasinski the handsome devil that he is, created this show out of the goodness of his heart to spotlight good news and also kick it with his celebrity friends and give us all a taste of an Office reunion and probably keep him busy during quarantine. The entertainment industry is so RABID for new ideas because they recycle the same old shit constantly, that after John’s 8 episode run was over there was a legitimate bidding war for the IP of the show. John sold out and now Some Good News will be on CBS…without him. WHAT IS EVEN THE POINT?! Like way to take a good, wholesome original thing and turn it corporate ya money-hungry grubbers. I’m not even mad at John because he created the idea and he deserves the payout…but man, Hollywood ruins everything. (I’ll retract that statement the day they offer me even a penny for my work. BUT UNTIL THEN I WON’T BITE MY TONGUE.)
BONUS: This is a very weird wormhole that I went down, but everyone was really jazzed about the below clip where Sarah Ramos (of Parenthood fame) and Dylan O’Brien (of Teen Wolf reboot fame) redid a scene from the Social Network.
And that’s cool and all, they obviously did a good job and you can watch the original scene at the end for reference if like me, you haven’t seen the social network in a solid 5 years. But what really entertained me for the rest of the night, was going into a deep dive on Sarah Ramos’ instagram. Girl has been just regularly recreating obscure movie and TV scenes on her own and they are GREAT. Shout out to her for just doing the damn thing. I’ve included my favorites (all pre-teen classics) but you can refer to her Instagram page for a real variety of content. Her ability to match Hilary Duff’s voice really sold me. Shouting out an incredibly cringeworthy Heidi/LC fallout scene from the Hills was just the cherry on top.
(Proof that even in her teen years, Megan Fox was playing THE EXACT SAME “CHARACTER” she always plays. I rest my case.)
And in the spirit of sharing videos of one single person filming themselves and getting way too into it, here are my TikToks from this week. If you don’t follow me on TikTok yet, you’re obviously missing out on some of my best content. I can’t allow that to happen, which is why I will continue to blast it out on my blog and also text 5-10 people the video every time I make one. Someone I like telling me I’m funny counts 10x more than a stranger on TikTok liking my video, although I will happily accept both. I’m just doing the Lord’s work here really, blessing y’all with selfie videos you never knew you wanted or needed.
