Instagram influencers are the easiest sub-set of “celebrities” to sh-t on because no one will ever stick up for an influencer. They are universally ridiculed and dismissed. So what am I doing here?  Amanda Seyfried posted two things about an influencer (who I’ll get to in a second). Full Story

Those two blowhards, Donald Trump and Piers Morgan, sat down for an interview. You can read about it wherever you want to read about it. The only thing I want to say about it here is that Trump addressed the Meghan Markle thing again and clarified what he wanted to say the first time when he called her “nasty” and then denied calling her “nasty” even though there was video with audio of him calling him “nasty” – apparently what he really meant was:  “She was nasty to me, and that’s OK for her to be nasty. Full Story

It was a “media alert!” announcing that this morning there would be a “live launch” of Bond 25, and as I read the email, I legit laughed out loud. They’re trying it? This week? THIS week of ALL weeks? This week and next week are the two busiest pop culture weeks of the year. Full Story
