Drake Yells At The Internet on ‘Scorpion’

Poor Drake. He just dropped his latest album, Scorpion, and on it he complains about why the web sucks.

Except for the part that made him rich and famous beyond his wildest dreams, of course…

The rest of it’s pretty bad though.

Intrusive and abusive fans who want to go beyond plunking down 20 bucks for a double album with 25 tracks and going on forever into 90-minute-land.

Or losing rap battles and earning the scorn of his peers.

Then there’s the fact he couldn’t keep it a secret that he’s a single dad with a son.

Now, that part is understandable. Why does the world need to know so much about his kid?

Those and many other questions are answered through lyrics and music on the new tracks. But, what other kind of venom is expected with an album called Scorpion?

Epic rants like this one get a bit tiresome to fans who don’t necessarily want to know about the negative influences in a star’s life. It’s more about the good things that happen to celebrities all the time. You know, like, the money?

Reviews of the album are good, but, most say it’s just too long.

And, there’s too much whining.

But, the one thing about Drake is he always gets to a kernel of truth, even if we have to dig deep through the husk to see it.

This time, it’s about a son he’s always denied he had:

Single father, I hate when I hear it
I used to challenge my parents on every album
Now I’m embarrassed to tell ‘em I ended up as a co-parent
Always promised the family unit
I wanted it to be different because I’ve been through it
But this is the harsh truth now”

It was actually good of him to try to protect his son from his fame. It’s usually the other way around.

So, it looks like Drake is the Old Man now.

What’s the title of his next album going to be?

How about: “Get off my effin’ lawn!…

Ruby Rose Criticized For Her New Role As Batwoman

Published

on

Australian model and actress Ruby Rose deleted her Twitter account yesterday amid waves of backlash for her upcoming role as Batwoman. The DC character Batwoman is the alias of Kate Kane, who is Jewish and also openly gay. As soon as this decision was announced, internet gatekeepers from several fandoms and communities threw a fit because Rose does not match the character of Batwoman in real life enough for their liking.

What are the critics saying? In a nutshell, the complaint is that Rose is not lesbian enough to play this role. After all, 100% of good movie characters have actors of the same sexuality, race, age, height, and favorite color. Rose is attracted to women but identifies as nonbinary, according to an interview with Teen Vogue. The same actress who was praised by the LGBT community for her role as in Orange is the New Black is now being criticized for her queer identity. So her not identifying as a woman in the binary sense in real life is somehow worse than what some may call nonbinary erasure? Outraged Twitter and Tumblr activists have spent the last few days fighting over the nuances of labels under the hashtag #recastbatwoman.

The actress’ ability to act when auditioning for the acting role is the shallow part? Would a random Jewish lesbian with less experience and weaker acting skills really play the part better? Also, while the movie expresses the character’s identity, it is far from the main point and there is actually an interesting story to be told.

One of the main arguments is that Rose got the role and Ashley Platz, an LGBT Jewish actress, did not. It is unclear whether or not the advocates of #recastbatwoman know how auditions work or grasp the concept of competition. Movie producers choose the character who they believe will play the role the best, as it is in their best interest to receive good reviews from actual critics and sell more tickets. Ashley Platz responded calmly to this mayhem in the tweet below.

Angelina Jolie Demands More Money From Brad Pitt

Published

on

For Angelina Jolie, divorce is a game of monetary and social revenge. Under the guise of not receiving a sufficient amount of child support money from her ex, Brad Pitt, Jolie has kept this ugly game going two years after the marriage ended. Over the past few weeks, these tensions have reached a boiling point.

Jolie has accused Pitt of not paying “meaningful” child support and wants him to make up for this retroactively. It is unclear what consists of “meaningful” child support in this case as the estranged couple has not explained any previous arrangements that they had agreed upon. Being one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood is a very tough job and Jolie obviously struggles to make ends meet without another multimillionaire by her side to help her.

Despite the fact that Jolie’s lawyer Laura Wasser has quit on her, the battle goes on. It appears that Jolie is trying to take the legal matters into her own hands while maintaining control over which aspects of the dispute the media will see. Coincidentally, they all seem to paint Pitt in a bad light.

Prolonging this public dispute must be great for the couple’s six children’s well being. Along with dealing with the emotional pain of a divorce, they also have to deal with their parents using them as a pretext for their own problems in front of the entire world.

Taken at the Telluride festival

Pitt has voiced his opinion of the whole mess and his concern for his children. According to sources, he thinks that Jolie’s making this case public is “disgusting.” From his point of view, Jolie is using him as a punching bag by misrepresenting him in the media in order to finesse several million dollars out of him. He made it clear that he “adamantly disputes the contention that he has not paid significant child support.”

Bella Thorne Drops Copycat Makeup Line

Published

on

Thorne is known for her eccentric makeup and style

Is a young female celebrity really successful if she doesn’t have her own makeup line? From Kylie Jenner to Rihanna, smart women know that capitalizing off of other women’s insecurities is the best way to boost their stardom. That being said, it’s much better to bring something somewhat original to the table.

Bella Thorne is the latest young celeb to announce a new makeup collection, pandering to the edgier teens with its unique name Filthy Fangs. Her eyeshadow palettes cost between $50-$60 and come in a range of bright, sparkly colors. Thorne posted several pictures promoting her makeup on her Instagram page, @bellathorne.

However, it seemed that Thorne neglected to realize that in this day and age, it is much harder to plagiarize. And the internet caught on in no time. Thorne has been accused of copying another makeup brand called Juvia’s Place, which is owned by Chichi Eburu, a popular African makeup artist. And the internet could not be saltier about it. Under the picture shared above, Instagram user @dilipglawcequeen commented “Your other palette packaging and color scheme are stolen from an independent black owned company that has worked and grinded to have some of the best pigmentation and blendability at low prices and you got the caucasity to steal color concept and packaging? [heavy profanity].”

How similar are the two products? After all, there are only so many possible combinations of colors and package designs so it only makes sense that there is some overlap among brands. Twitter user @whatsLDPupto posted a side-by-side comparison of Eburu and Thorne’s collections and strongly believes so. Juvia’s Place is pictured on the left side and Filthy Fangs is pictured on the right.

A representative from Juvia’s Place responded calmly to the controversy, saying that “We are not affiliated with [Filthy Fangs]. Yes we are aware of the painful and awkward similarities. It’s obvious they have done little to no research or they have bluntly stolen our concept which is unacceptable. We believe in originality and the brand you have mentioned lacks that. We have chosen to be light hearted about the situation, after all makeup is supposed to be fun!!”

Only the future will tell if Thorne and her company will take this advice to heart and brainstorm a little better next time.
