Ansari hits the nail on the head
The host of the first Saturday Night Live following Donald Trump‘s inauguration knew he/she had a big responsibility — as did producers of the show. So who better than actor-comedian Aziz Ansari to take the reins? He admitted right off the bat that he thought it was pretty cool to know that Trump was “probably at home right now watching a brown guy make fun of him” and we were in.
He also called Trump the “Chris Brown of politics” and he couldn’t be more right. But he then went on to say that it’s OK that the country is divided because, basically, Americans aren’t robots who are all programmed to think the same way and believe in the same things. Aziz pointed out that the bigger problem wasn’t all those who voted for Trump; rather, it’s the new group, the closeted racists who have come out of hiding, the Trump supporters the comedian defined as “casual white supremacy” and calls the “lowercase KKK” the real issue.
Ansari then implored President Trump (still hard to type) to speak out against this small pocket of his supporters. “Don’t tweet about me being lame or the show. Write a speech, a real speech. Because these people are out there, and it’s pissing a lot of people off. And I think it could make a difference.”
He proceeded to cite George W. Bush‘s speech about Muslims following 9/11, expressed hope Trump could something similar, and ended it on a serious but awesome note. Bravo, Aziz.
Kate might be planning Pippa’s bachelorette in Switzerland
If this is true, this would be the ultimate girls’ weekend. As Pippa Middleton gears up for her May wedding to James Matthews, it’s being reported that Duchess Kate is planning a blowout bachelorette extravaganza.
“Kate is arranging a no-expenses-spared weekend at a luxury resort in the Swiss Alps for Pippa and 15 of her closest friends,” a source told Life & Style, with activities like skiing, snowmobiling, ice skating and massages on the agenda.
“Kate is hiring private chefs to cook a lavish 10-course tasting dinner featuring some of Pippa’s own dishes,” the insider continued, adding that the royal is “arranging surprise performances by the likes of Ellie Goulding and possibly some even bigger stars.”
Here’s the thing. We don’t even know if Kate is going to be in the wedding party. Considering how thunder-stealing it would be if the Duchess was her sister’s maid of honour or even a bridesmaid, there’s talk that all Kate might do is say a reading at the ceremony. Totally understandable. Plus, the mom of two might be a little busy to plan something this epic. Let’s leave the party planning to Pippa, shall we? But, oh, how amazing would this be?
Gavin Rossdale didn’t want to divorce Gwen Stefani
Um, then don’t mess around. OK, OK, Gavin allegedly had an ongoing, longtime affair with their nanny, and Gwen allegedly learned about it which resulted in her divorce filing last year. She has since moved on with Blake Shelton, and now Rossdale is speaking about his ex and their split.
“I still think she’s incredible,” Rossdale told The Sun. “[Divorce] was completely opposite to what I wanted. But here we are. Apart from death, I think divorce is one of the hardest, most painful things to go through.”
Gavin’s focus became all about their kids and making the adjustment as easy as possible.
“For me, it was about being solid for them, and silent, but respectful of Gwen. That’s what I’ll be forever,” he added. “Those days were the worst days ever.” He said that while he’s not dating, his kids want their dad to get a girlfriend.
Hmm, maybe Gavin, who just signed on for the U.K. version of The Voice, can find love with a fellow judge, just like Gwen.
Surprise, surprise, Biebs doesn’t like The Weeknd (‘s music, wink, wink)
What do you mean, Justin Bieber? You don’t like your ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend? Shocker.
While leaving a restaurant in West Hollywood Friday, TMZ asked the singer if he’s able to listen to a song by The Weeknd and Bieber’s response was about what you’d expect.
“Hell, no, I can’t listen to a Weeknd song. That sh*t’s wack.”
“Wack.” Damn. Though I’m sure The Weeknd and Selena Gomez are a little too busy with themselves to care. Aw, poor Biebs. We think he’ll be OK though.
Kate Hudson’s brother hates the “hell” his life has become, thanks to the rumours she’s dating Brad Pitt
Oliver Hudson is not happy with Brad Pitt. The actor took to Instagram to jokingly rant about all of Pitt’s problems, now that he’s supposedly dating — and moved in! with — his sister, Kate Hudson. Of course, the pic he posted wasn’t one of Brad and Kate but rather the tabloid cover of the latest “news.”
Not only do Oliver’s list of grievances include Brad’s poor bathroom manners, drinking out of the carton and some jokes referencing Pitt’s love of pot but that Brad has also “driven a wedge” between Oliver and real brother Wyatt. But the most outrageous is how their mom, Goldie Hawn, is “overtly flirting with him” and “wearing these little nighties around the house.” Thankfully Kurt Russell is man enough to handle these things. Ahh, more of this please. So much better than impending divorce and custody details from Angelina and Brad.
Yeah and it’s been hell!! He’s messy as shit! He drinks out of the fucking carton and leaves the door open when he’s taking a dump!! And this is when he’s at MY house!!! He’s already calling me brother and has driven a wedge between myself and my real brother Wyatt who now won’t speak to me.. he insists my kids call him uncle B and lost my youngest at the Santa Monica pier for 2 days.. thank god for amber alert.. my mom’s overtly flirting with him! Shes wearing these little nighties around the house now?! But ALL DAY!! Like at 3pm! And Pa just keeps saying “All right!! It’s Brad Pitt!!” Anyway not going well.. so BP.. it’s time to move out man.. I need my life back dog.. I’ll smoke one more bowl and then get the fuck out.. we thank you.. oh and I found your medical bracelet so I’ll get that back to you.. ok..
