The Duchess of Cambridge may have a legion of fans who follow every stylish move she makes — but Atwood isn’t one of them. The Canadian author was in London’s Victoria and Albert Museum a few weeks back but video has surfaced of her answering a question about Kate’s fashion sense.
“I think she dresses quite uneventfully,” laughed Atwood, but added that Kate’s choices are likely because of people telling her what she can and shouldn’t wear. “I don’t think she’s become the fashion plate that Diana was, and I think she’s probably doing that advisedly, wouldn’t you say?”
Atwood did joke that she was too old to judge what the Duchess is wearing but the damage was done.
@ezralevant Margaret Atwood is literally the second last person on the planet I’d take fashion advice from. She looks like a q-tip on meth.

Atwood had no idea her offhand comment would ruffle so many feathers and released a statement to the Globe and Mail on Sunday, calling the situation “so idiotic it’s funny.” Perfection.
David Lynch leaves Twin Peaks
It was a dark Easter Sunday as Lynch took to Twitter to announce that he has pulled out of Showtime’s Twin Peaks reboot.
After 1 year and 4 months of negotiations, I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done.

So, the good news: the Twin Peaks revival is still on. The bad news? It probably won’t be the same.
The Internet lost it on Kylie Jenner for going “blackface,” but did she really?
New shots of Kylie surfaced over the weekend and people were torn between whether the reality star was wearing blackface or if the dark, sparkly skin and glittery pink hair was futuristic. So Jenner took to Instagram to clarify what the photo shoot was really like.

Blackface? Alien? Nah. All we see is Lindsay Lohan.
Beyoncé dropped a new song on her anniversary with Jay Z
The song? “Die With You,” a sweet ballad fit for their seven-year wedding anniversary. “I don’t have a reason to be if I can’t be with you,” she sings. “I love so I can die with you.” Aw.
But there was an ulterior motive for Bey releasing a 15-second clip of the tune on Facebook: You have to go to Jay’s new music streaming service, Tidal, for the song in its entirety. Riiiiiight.
Michael Keaton brought back Batman and Beetlejuice on SNL. Sort of.
Keaton’s monologue on Saturday Night Live was interrupted by nerdy cast members Taran Killam, Bobby Moynihan and Jay Pharoah, who tried to guilt the three-time host into reviving his beloved characters. It didn’t work out exactly as planned but fans still got a kick out of it.
