We’ve received a few emails this week asking for commentary on Cardi B and #survivingCardiB. Duana and I will be covering this on the next episode of Show Your Work.
There are thousands of takes on Alec Baldwin – he’s a douchebag, he has a temper, he talks too much, he thinks too highly of himself – and, of course, all of them are valid. But here’s my take from an interviewer’s perspective: he’s a great interview. For all of his flaws (and there are many, I get it, I am NOT defending Alec Baldwin, please read what I’m trying to say), all I’m trying to say is that when you’re interviewing Alec, you know it’s not going to be boring. You know he’s going to give you something you can use. That’s one of the reasons Howard Stern loves talking to him. (Dlisted)
Wait…what? There’s a theory going around about the Avengers that it’s Ant-Man who eventually defeats Thanos but going into his ass and setting off an explosion – am I reading this right? (Pajiba)
To the surprise of no one, Nicolas Cage has filed for an annulment after four days of marriage. Four days ago is when news first broke that he and Erika Koike had gotten married. But along with that headline came information that they were fighting the whole time and Nic was yelling at Erika about trying to steal his money, or something. Now there are new photos of them arguing that night and details from the paperwork that include, obviously, the fact that they were drunk when it happened and the suggestion that Erika may have been involved with someone else or something and might be trying to swindle him. Right. So by the end of this weekend, are they going to be back together again? (TMZ)
Snake print is the print of the season. It’s everywhere right now and it’s going to be even more ubiquitous in the coming weeks. These snake print boots on Keri Russell are spectacular even though snake print really isn’t my thing. If I ever wear it, I prefer in green or blue. (Go Fug Yourself)
For those of you who’ve been wondering why Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus got back together, here’s one of the possible reasons. Was there really a big mystery about this though? He was struggling with addiction and mental health and had to prioritise getting better. That pretty much covers it, non? (Cele|bitchy)
We started the day talking about 1999, specifically all the rom-coms that happened that year. But, in general, a lot of movies that came out that year became part of the culture. LIKE THE MATRIX. Here’s why it’s an “enduring classic”. (The Ringer)
