Random Celebrity News

For some values of "random", "celebrity" and "news". At Hollywood in Toto, Kristen Stewart Proves Massive Progress for Gay Rights

Stewart plays a gym manager named Lou who falls in love with a female bodybuilder (Katy M. O’Brian, “Ant Man and the Wasp: Quantumania”). Their romance is threatened by Lou’s father (Ed Harris), a criminal whose schemes endanger the main characters. The film opens wide March 15.

Stewart promoted the film with a cover story in the far-Left Rolling Stone magazine. The “Twilight” alum vowed to make the cover shoot the “gayest thing you’ve ever seen,” posing in a jock strap.

The magazine tried to antagonize allegedly bigoted conservatives with an accompanying article entitled, “Right-Wingers Are Terrified of Our Gay Kristen Stewart Cover.” The small sampling of conservatives referenced in the article recoiled at how unhappy Stewart appears in the photographs and how sexually explicit they are for shock value’s sake. It hardly suggested any sort of rebellion or attempt to silence her and her romantic life. None appear “terrified” by any rational definition.

There are gay people in Hollywood? Whoda thunk. NYPo reports Sylvester Stallone had Navy SEALs train his daughters before they moved to NYC

To live in the Big Apple, they had to train like Rambo. Sylvester Stallone was so nervous about his daughters Sophia and Sistine living in NYC that he hired Navy SEALs to train them in self-defense — and even had them chase chickens Rocky-style.

“It was the hardest. It was about six hours we were in those woods,” Sistine, 25, told The Post ahead of Season 2 of “The Family Stallone,” which premieres on Feb. 21. “Sophia and I got our asses whooped by these guys. They were the real deal,” she said.

That's fatherly love for you.  From JTN, Crowd boos Israeli medallist in swimming World Championships

The crowd at the Doha World Championships on Sunday booed an Israeli medallist who won silver in the women's 400-meter medley.

"I'm just so happy to be here and represent my country in this hard time, being here with the Israeli flag means a lot to me and to my country, so that's the best I can do," Israeli Anastasia Gorbenko said in a post-race interview as loud boos could be heard in the background.

Hollywood it Toto yet again, hears  Whitney Cummings Got Busted By HR for Saying One Simple Phrase “I got in trouble for saying, ‘Merry Christmas’ on the set of ‘Roseanne,’”  

“When HR called me to say I was in trouble for saying, ‘Merry Christmas,’ They were like, ‘Hey, um, so … ‘ They thought it was ridiculous, too,” Cummings recalled. She didn’t stop there, though. “I confronted the person and I basically was like, ‘You’re dangerous to everybody in this office.’”

“That’s a good story, and I’m glad it came out that way for you, but I am not as sanguine as you are about the idea that the ridiculous don’t have fans – the other people who are ridiculous,” Maher said. “Ridiculous stuff does land sometimes … and no one ever gets in trouble for being too woke.”

At Da Mail,  American ballerina Ksenia Karelina is detained for 'high treason' in Russia by Putin's feared FSB security accused of raising $51 for the Ukrainian army and could face 20 years in jail if found guilty  

Vladimir Putin's secretive Federal Security Service has arrested a dual Russian-American ballerina on treason charges, officials confirmed Tuesday.

Videos posted by a Russian news agency shows 32-year-old Ksenia Karelina being led into a courtroom in handcuffs and with her eyes blindfolded. It's not clear when the video was recorded.

Karelina is a resident of Los Angeles who became a US citizen in 2021. Her social media pages are littered with photos of her smiling, loving life in the US.

Can't we trade her for Kamala Harris or AOC or somebody? 

Hollywood in Toto yet again, with  ‘Drugstore June’ Delivers Dizzying Millennial Satire (With a Twist)  

Think Austin Powers, Capt. Jack Sparrow and Derek Zoolander. These larger-than-life types are played by actors who never step out of character for a nanosecond.

Esther Povitsky’s character in “Drugstore June” is cut from similar cloth. June defies pat labels, providing a fresh source of laughter in this 90-minute treat. Chances are you’ll want to see her again as soon as possible.

Povitsky’s June works at a drugstore and still lives at home with her dysfunctional Ma and Pa (Beverly D’Angelo and James Remar, both rock solid). Her life revolves around live streaming every inane thought that pops into her head and fleeing “trauma” in the form of mild insults and observations.

At OutKick,  Sydney Sweeney Nukes Dietitian Allegedly Lying About Relationship With Actress

An Instagram account with the handle @colostrum.lover claimed she "was Sydney Sweeney's dietican [sic] for 5 years" and "helped her get her dream role with 5 easy food swaps."

It's a social media template we've seen before. There's just one problem. Sweeney hopped on the reel to let people know she had no idea who this woman was, according to multiple reports

"I don't know you and kraft mac n cheese is for life," a viral screenshot shows Sweeney commenting. The Instagram page appears to have been deleted as of publication.

And no "celebrity'" post would be complete without Taylor Swift.  The Peacock dourly worries the  Economic boost from Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour could be overstated, Nomura warns

The devil’s in the details, but local economies have a friend in Taylor Swift.

The American pop star has spent nearly a year crossing the U.S. and the globe with her high-flying Eras Tour. The economic effect of the “Karma” singer’s show has caught the attention of everyone from the Federal Reserve to Wall Street.

Her tour undoubtedly helped the local economies she visited, according to a new report out from Japanese investment bank Nomura. But the firm questions how much of an imprint it made on national data.

“Her boost to consumption has certainly enchanted US economic analysts, but we believe the total macroeconomic effect is probably overstated,” Nomura global economist Si Ying Toh wrote to clients last week.

Between the first and third quarter of 2023, Swift’s venture alone lifted nominal U.S. retail sales by 0.03%, and real gross domestic product, a measure of economic output, by 0.02%, Nomura estimates show.

And we know economists are never wrong, after all, they correctly predicted the last 21 of 7 recessions.
