It’s Super Bowl weekend! Whatever part of that you enjoy, enjoy the crap out of it. Personally, I’m looking forward to the snacks and the fact that for the first time, the Puppy Bowl will stream online. Go sports! (Washington Post)
I do also like the dancing. (CBS)
Rupert Grint (aka Ron Weasley) just shat all over the love between Ron and Hermione by saying that they’re DEFINITELY divorced by now. I mean, I don’t know if he’s wrong, BUT STILL. (Mashable)
This story of a woman who crashed her own funeral and yelled “Surprise! I’m still alive!” at the husband who paid to have her killed is the most insane story you’ll read today. It’s also profoundly inspiring. But really freaking nuts. (WP)
We haven’t been covering Kesha’s legal battles like we maybe should be. She’s been trapped in a legal nightmare with her producer, whom she says abused, drugged, and raped her. Yesterday she had a victory in the process, but it’s not over yet. (Mary Sue)
I know they’re just shilling shampoo, but I don’t care. Pantene’s line of commercials where NFL players do their daughters’ hair is GENIUS and it touches my heart.
Rory’s most punchable boyfriend is coming back for the Gilmore Girls revivial. Wait, maybe second most punchable. Or third? I don’t know, they’re all crap but I really hate his stupid smug face. (TVLine)
The Coen brothers— whom I LOVE— have added their own excessively dense sentiments to the #OscarsSoWhite conversation. To be honest, I couldn’t even make it to the end. I only got to the point where they defended not casting more actors of color in their movies by refusing to see that there only needs to be a reason for diverse casting if you go in seeing white as the natural human default. Instead they compare casting Asian actors to casting Martians. Forgive me, I had to close that tab. (Daily Beast)
I feel like we need to invent a new term other than “gift bag” for what Oscar nominees receive on awards night. Because this is no normal gift bag. It includes, just to name a few, vaporizers, vibrators, breast enhancement procedures, trips around the world, and EVEN MORE GIFT BAGS. (Movie Pilot)
Pajiba covered Leah Remini and her break from Scientology last fall once, a couple of times, well really multiple times, and now Cannonball Read is getting into the action with narfna’s review of Remini’s book Troublemaker. Remini’s particular and very unique voice shines through, even though the book is ghostwritten. 4 stars. (Cannonball Read 8)
Happy Friday! Keep yourselves clean this weekend.
