The last trailer for Avengers: Infinity War dropped today, and as you can tell, it’s yet another comic book movie where a CGI villain tries to collect objects to gain the ultimate power in the universe or whatever. But this is Marvel movie, so it’ll be, you know, better. Captain America looks to have a beard on purpose, so that’s good. Anyway, the movie is the culmination of all the crap they’ve done for the last 10 years, and I expect Iron Man to die, because even Disney can’t afford Robert Downey, Jr. anymore. Maybe Black Widow and Hulk will die because Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo look like Black Widow and Hulk’s parents now. I’ll pay money to see this, obviously.

The #MeToo movement has done an amazing job of letting everyone know what qualifies as consent and explaining how older men in positions of power use that to prey on younger women trying to start their careers. Why do I mention this? I don’t know, really. Let’s watch this clip of Benjamin Glaze, a 19-year-old American Idol contestant and Katy Perry, a 30-year-old American Idol judge and now imagine if I had written, “Katy Perry, a 19-year-old American Idol contestant and Benjamin Glaze, a 30-year-old American Idol judge” instead.
Bro. I can already see the think pieces on this and the tweets demanding Benjamin Glaze, a 30-year-old American Idol judge, to be fired. And he’s a straight white male, too? Even better. Luckily for Katy Perry, this kind of thing is still considered a “funny joke” and “cute”, so we can just brush off Glaze’s thoughts on this that he gave to The New York Times:
“I was a tad bit uncomfortable,” Mr. Glaze said by phone this week, after the incident aired on the season premiere. His first kiss was a rite of passage he had been putting off with consideration. “I wanted to save it for my first relationship,” he said. “I wanted it to be special.” “Would I have done it if she said, ‘Would you kiss me?’ No, I would have said no,” he said. “I know a lot of guys would be like, ‘Heck yeah!’ But for me, I was raised in a conservative family and I was uncomfortable immediately. I wanted my first kiss to be special.”
Wait, he’s a conservative? He’s probably just a prude and needs to open up sexually and not be afraid of a liberated woman or something like that. Suck it up. She already killed a nun, so your religious beliefs don’t matter. In the end, Glaze was talked out of his feelings because of a technicality.
When he returned home, Mr. Glaze worked through his feelings about the kiss by talking to his friends. “They agreed with me that it didn’t really count,” he said. “It was lip contact versus a romantic situation with someone you care about. That’s what a real first kiss is.”
Pretty sure ABC’s headline would disagree with you there, Glaze. Anyway, that was fun. Duke plays Iona today, so any thoughts and prayers would be appreciated.
Hey, remember when Sharon Tate’s sister said Jennifer Lawrence wasn’t pretty enough to play Sharon Tate? We had a good laugh about that. It’s something I’ll always treasure. Luckily, Quentin Tarantino heard that and cast Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate instead.
Deadline broke last July 11 that Quentin Tarantino had met with Margot Robbie and asked her to play Sharon Tate in his next film. She now has the offer and negotiations are underway to make it a reality. Robbie, who’s coming off her Oscar-nominated turn in the title role of I, Tonya, will join Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
The good news is we’re getting another Quentin Tarantino movie. The bad news is *skip ahead to avoid spoilers* we’re getting a movie where a pregnant woman gets violently murdered and has her baby ripped out and Tarantino might show that entire thing with comical amounts of blood. And the baby will probably say the n-word when it comes out.
Selma Blair let everybody know we won’t be getting a sequel to 2002’s The Sweetest Thing (pauses to Google), because Cameron Diaz is retiring from acting. Here’s Blair telling Metro UK all of Cameron Diaz’s business.
‘I had lunch with Cameron the other day. We were reminiscing about the film. I would have liked to do a sequel but Cameron’s retired from acting. She’s like ‘I’m done.”…I mean, she doesn’t need to make any more films. She has a pretty great life, I don’t know what it would take to bring her back. She’s happy.’”
Apparently Cameron Diaz read that then texted her, because Blair then tweeted this:
BREAKING NEWS: Guys please, I was making a joke in an interview. CAMERON DIAZ is NOT retiring from ANYTHING. And for more breaking news: I am NOW retiring from being Cameron Diaz’s spokesperson.” Later that same day the Blair thanked her followers for having her back. She retweeted her “breaking news” tweet and wrote, “Thank you so much for helping to get the word out.”
Dammit, Selma. Had me all hyped for nothing. But I do say it seems like blatant sexism that Cameron Diaz’s potential retirement didn’t get as much coverage as perennial-Oscar nominee Daniel Day-Lewis’ retirement. Diaz was in such films as Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle and What to Expect When You’re Expecting. Daniel Day-Lewis was in what, shit movies like There Will Be Blood and Phantom Thread? This is blatant Hollywood sexism yet again.
So, I binged S2 of Jessica Jones this weekend. It was okay. But if they want to do a third season, I’d probably start filming it yesterday, because Krysten Ritter looks like she aged about 15 years. Wait, did S2 happen 15 years later? If so, never mind. I understand now. My bad.
Now that you’ve refreshed that Stacey Dash post about 40 times, did you know that Taylor Swift dropped a new music video? Great. It’s for the song “Delicate.” Maybe because I’ve been in a damn good mood lately, I really don’t hate the song. I’m surprised myself. Anyway, the video starts out with a bunch of people wanting to take selfies Taylor Swift, and then a dude tries to hump her, then she goes to the bathroom and becomes invisible then dances. Not entirely sure what the hidden meaning is supposed to be here, but Taylor Swift insists on dancing in all her videos, so that’s something we’re gonna have to accept. She also dances barefoot in a subway station, so shout out to the people who had to scrub the floor with crushed rose petals or whatever it was Taylor Swift put in her contract.

Former Clueless star and former Fox News person, Stacey Dash, is running for Congress in California. I’m sure this will be met with rational discourse and no hyperbole at all.
The Clueless star filed papers for a U.S. Congressional run with the Federal Election Commission on Monday announcing the formation of a principal campaign committee under the name “Dash to DC.” Stacey Dash is listed as the candidate, running as a Republican for a seat in the House of Representatives representing California’s 44th district. The 44th district is in the South Los Angeles and Los Angeles Harbor areas and includes the cities of Carson, Compton, San Pedro, and Wilmington. The news comes after Dash’s Feb. 9 tweet asking her followers what they thought of her running for political office, as she “mulled the possibilities.”
Man, this is great. A woman of color running for a political office. We need more women of color in politi-oh wait no sorry I just checked Twitter. This woman of color running for political office is bad because apparently all women of color have the exact same political beliefs and Stacey Dash is the only woman of color in America who doesn’t share those beliefs. So glad we caught that! Thanks guys! Please be on the lookout for more women of color running for political office who don’t believe the exact same thing you do. Fuck them. Be sure to tell them to shut up on Twitter a lot.
Jennifer Lawrence seems pretty excited about it in the banner pic, but she’s apparently dating Red Sparrow co-star Joel Edgerton. Per Daily Mail:
On Wednesday, The Daily Telegraphclaimed ‘rumours are swirling throughout Hollywood’ that the 27-year-old Oscar winner is dating the Australian actor, 43. The pair have been seen putting on a series of flirty displays in recent weeks as they promote their new film together. According to the newspaper, ‘the co-stars are often seen having private moments, chatting and giggling together’. During their latest public appearance in New York on Monday night, the pair looked cosy as Joel wrapped his arm tightly around Jennifer’s waist.
So are they dating or just banging? Either way, history shows the best way to do both with Jennifer Lawrence is to be in a movie with her or direct a movie she’s in. If Jennifer Lawrence wasn’t famous she’d be that woman who finds her soulmate in the office where she works. Well, maybe not the office because she didn’t graduate high school. She’d definitely fall in love with her Bojangles’ day manager though.

Five months after Josh Duhamel and Fergie split and less than a month after Fergie became a traitor to America, Duhamel, 45, is now banging the insanely hot Eiza Gonzalez, 28, after meeting at the Super Bowl.
“They drank and partied together until very late,” the insider says. “After, Josh reached out to a mutual friend and asked for Eiza’s number.”….“They definitely have a connection because they’ve been FaceTiming and texting nonstop while she’s been in England working,” the insider tells Us. “They’re keeping it on the down-low. He’s telling her he’s never met anyone like her before.”
Imagine spending 8 years with Fergie then realizing you really didn’t have to and could pull pieces like Eiza Gonzalez at any time. Like Fergie has looked like somebody wearing a Fergie mask since 2005. Why did he do this to himself?
In an interview with 60 Minutes, Jennifer Lawrence says she dropped out of school at 14 and never went back. Per People:
“I dropped out of middle school. I don’t technically have a GED or a diploma. I am self-educated,” she says. But does she regret the decision? “No. I really don’t. I wanted to forge my own path. I found what I wanted to do and I didn’t want anything getting in the way of it. Even friends, for many years, were not as important to me as my career from the age of 14.”
Man, everything Jennifer Lawrence says or does makes sense now. I guess we should have picked up on this sooner. But I really feel bad for her, because if she went to high school she could have been an expert on gun reform policy. She really missed an opportunity here.
