Barbra Streisand is protective of her legacy – she doesn’t let just anyone tour her underground mall. Babs consistently loves on Ariana Grande. Maybe they’ll do an album together, like Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett.
This is just a runoff from above, but while looking through Barbra’s feed I saw this photo of a young Timothée Chalamet in a holiday jumper and thought we could all enjoy it.
Last night, Scarface was on and it’s a movie that still works if you can accept it’s a comedy. My favourite character in it is, obviously, Michelle Pfeiffer’s Elvira Hancock (the Wiki page on her character is an interesting Sliding Doors scenario – could you see Kim Basinger or Sharon Stone in the role?). As we know, so many films have been rebooted and spun off into a world, so why don’t we have an Elvira Hancock movie? I don’t want a Scarface remake (which is, of course, in the works) but I would love to see where Michelle’s character is now. What happened to her after she left the restaurant?
On Friday, I posted a link to Ziwe’s Instagram Live series and later that day this story dropped in Vanity Fair, “The Art of Putting White People on the Spot” written by Yohan Desta. It’s a great read on how Ziwe uses tension, how she secures high-profile, Internet-famous guests and why guests seem to always have “4-5 Black friends.”
Alison Roman acknowledges how she contributed to a toxic culture at Bon Appetite by doing and saying nothing. A lot of â€œalliesâ€ canâ€™t even admit this to themselves! Shout out to Alison Roman!!! pic.twitter.com/uvjj3T7d4T— ziwe (@ziwe) June 26, 2020
I, an asshole, have just gotten into The Good Fight even though I’ve been meaning to watch it forever and so many of you have emailed me about it. I am thoroughly enjoying it. But will I love season five without Cush Jumbo? She’s leaving and I’m not even close to that send-off and am already crushed. The show has seen a lot of the main characters leave and it doesn’t seem to be a problem with production, so maybe it’s the paycheque? Many who have left immediately announce a new project, which makes me think that may be the case. Also, Julianna Margulies said she hasn’t made an appearance because they wouldn’t pay her rate. Back to Cush: here she is being perfection in British Vogue.
Sorry to report that JK Rowling is at it again. Like Prem, I don’t want to write about her either but she won’t leave us alone. Why is someone with such immense economic and pop culture power so obsessed with such a small and marginalized group of women? I guess that’s what a troll does. But, as an antidote, there’s Disclosure (read Prem’s review here).
