Intro for May 18, 2015
The focus last night was getting up the courage to watch Mad Men, the series finale of Mad Men. Duana basically had to hold my hand. Needless to say, the Billboard Music Awards were not a priority. The only music news that really only mattered to me this weekend is Janet Jackson…
From her lips, on her birthday:
New music…a new tour…a new movement…
Yes, please. Please, yes.
But how about Elizabeth Banks and Pitch Perfect 2? $70 million which means Banks is now holds the record for highest opening weekend for a first time director, man or woman. Also the biggest opening for a musical. And speaking of women, it was women of all ages who decided that they’d spend time with the Bellas this weekend. The Bellas aren’t just for the youth. And the movies aren’t just for guys… although I can’t wait to see how studio executives try to explain it away like it’s a one-shot phenomenon.
Yours in gossip,
