Before we begin with today’s links, please let me help you with your mood for the rest of the week. Thanks to a reader called Amy who sent this to me last night. I’m sure you’ve heard about the Chinese street style TikToks that have become super popular the last few months. Well this might just be the best one. Mood for eternity. Mood 永恒.
Madonna will direct the biopic about Madonna which… yeah, that tracks. On the one hand, she was there and she’ll make sure that it all looks like it did. On the other hand, how objective will Madonna be about Madonna. It’s not like she has any distance from her subject. Ah f-ck it, who are we kidding. I’m going to watch the sh-t out of this movie and, probably, so are you. (Dlisted)
The youth probably don’t know who Markie Post is but Markie Post was definitely a name back in the day and the Fug Girls are revisiting her Emmys looks which… you know what? I support each and every single one. Especially the outfit that’s sort of like Sandy’s at the end of Grease. What I cannot support but I can forgive because that’s just how it was then is the hair. No matter what finds its way out from the 80s, I’m pretty sure these hairstyles are gone for good. (Go Fug Yourself)
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle celebrated their birthdays by making a donation to CAMFED in support of educational opportunities for girls in Africa. It must feel good to make philanthropic contributions with your own money. (Cele|bitchy)
I can’t believe it’s September and we still have to talk about Tiger King and its associated characters. Is it a f-cking surprise to anyone that Carole Baskin can’t dance?! Also, her ex-husband’s family must have spent some serious money to buy advertising during prime time. Sh-t, I just realised I have more to say about this and I really, really don’t want to. Let me think on it tonight. (OMG Blog)
Can it be bedtime so I can tuck in and read this because I can’t wait. It’s the Oral History of the first episode of Yo! MTV Raps. (Vulture)
