Lainey and I briefly talked about the Jessica Simpson/Natalie Portman “feud” last night, which is actually a nothingburger sparked by thirsty headlines. In the original interview with USA Today, Natalie Portman was referring to how the media tried to make virginal sex pots out of young female pop stars. Jessica responded to the misleading headlines around that, rather than Natalie’s full quote. And then Natalie had to respond to Jessica on Instagram.
Now let’s move on to boy sh-t: sports edition. Lance Armstrong is mad that he’s basically persona non grata (remember when he used to hang out with Jake Gyllenhaal and Matthew McConaughey?) while Alex Rodriguez gets to bask in JLo’s glow while he pursues a lucrative post-pro career in television.
This is commitment.
I’m still picking through Golden Globes nominations. I know they can’t nominate everything but I’m missing Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. For me, the most exciting category is Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television (why do they make these categories so wordy?): Henry Winkler (Barry) and Kieran Culkin (Succession) are both nominated. A real Sophie’s choice.
oh yes im bragging ..this is just sensational .... Blll and Alex and HBO thank you— Henry Winkler (@hwinkler4real) December 6, 2018
Foreign Press...... thank you all in all your languages https://t.co/ouuwjatSoz
Many of today’s pop stars (like Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry) tie their album cycles to a certain aesthetic, much like Madonna used to do. “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart” has launched, but I can’t quite figure out Miley Cyrus’s look for this era. Here she is in all black, wearing the Gucci belt all the Real Housewives love, and really long hair.
This hat is still available for sale! Not sure about the p-i-m-p necklace.
Are we ready for John David Washington to be very famous? It’s time. Overdue, really.
