Maria is on holiday so I’m taking over this space this week…
Coming out the Sydney Sweeney situation this weekend – which Stephanie will be posting about tomorrow – Zendaya started trending. And, as usual, it was both funny and ridiculous.

She remains unproblematic and unbothered – and she is currently in Budapest working on Dune 2; Tom Holland is visiting her there and they were seen yesterday riding around on scooters.

Budapest is a Young Hollywood hotspot right now.
I really canâ€™t process that right now Zendaya, Tom Holland, Austin Butler, TimothÃ©e Chalamet and Florence Pugh are all just kicking it in Budapest together.— robyn (@harrysghostface) August 27, 2022
My takeaway from all this is that Zendaya has the tea straight from Florence about Olivia Wilde. And she’ll never tell.
Meanwhile, there’s a country music beef that also made headlines this weekend, although this one is a lot less mysterious. Jason Aldean’s wife is an asshole and said some asshole sh-t on Instagram. Asshole sh-t = transphobic. Cassadee Pope wasn’t here for it and neither was Maren Morris. And then another asshole, Candace Owen, jumped in and Maren got the win here.
Oh my god, not you. My Grammy is positively sobbing right now. Also, why do yâ€™all always go to â€œcastrationâ€ and â€œpedophilesâ€ to try and shut an argument down? Itâ€™s honestly concerning and worth looking into.— MAREN MORRIS (@MarenMorris) August 26, 2022
Brandi Carlile appreciated it:
Bravo @MarenMorris ðŸŒˆ itâ€™s when you selflessly bear anotherâ€™s burden that you actually reflect gods love. Way to not tolerate disgusting behavior. Itâ€™s toughâ€¦but good to see this hidden divide exposed in country music- let your little light shine ðŸ’” https://t.co/u1jEpgspOB— Brandi Carlile (@brandicarlile) August 28, 2022
Last night Harry Styles wore Britney denim at his show but the night before it was pink and sequins and someone threw chicken at him which… this has been happening during tours more and more recently (Lady Gaga experienced it earlier this month) and while I know a chicken nugget isn’t going to do a lot of damage, maybe we should stop throwing sh-t at artists?! Also…shouldn’t a real fan know that he doesn’t eat chicken?

Speaking of real fans though, here’s a real fan…who is also a good drummer. Less chicken nuggets and more of this at concerts.
Incredible moment at @thekillers concert last night in LA.— Rich Eisen Show (@RichEisenShow) August 28, 2022
A fan in the crowd held up a sign â€œFighting Cancer and ready to play drums on â€˜Reasonsâ€™â€
Lead singer @BrandonFlowers then put him on stage and the fan, wearing a Fight Cancer t-shirt, absolutely crushed it.
I guess we’ll just stay with music the whole way through – have you seen Kevin Bacon’s cover of Beyoncé’s “Heated”? Kevin’s joined the Renaissance, like the rest of us. But does this mean he’s made the list? Like the next time there’s an Ivy Park drop, will he be posting an unboxing video?
You know what’s next here – every time I sub in for Maria here I always end on BTS. RM, Jin, Suga, j-hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook weren’t at the VMAs but they won the Group of the Year award for the fourth year in a row.

Meanwhile, here in Toronto, if you’re not ARMY and you head to the Eaton Centre this week… be prepared for massive crowds. Because this is happening and they’re expecting people to start lining up the DAY BEFORE.
