Ugh Jamie Foxx. Ugh Neil Patrick Harris. Ugh Dr. Luke. Ugh, What Are You Doing, Pete Davidson?
OK, let's just see if we can power through this:
The $550,000+ that Stormy Daniels crowd-funded to pay her legal fees may be targeted by creditors going after Michael Avenatti in a bankruptcy proceeding. (Raw Story)
Jamie Foxx is being accused of slapping a woman in the face with his penis after she refused to give him oral sex in 2002. Foxx denies the charge. (Dlisted)
Meanwhile, in court documents, a text message has surfaced showing that Kesha told Lady Gaga that Dr. Luke raped Katy Perry. (Vulture)
The daily Emma Stone and Justin Theroux rumor mill continues, and let's just throw Jennifer Lawrence and some grainy paparazzi photos in there, too. (Lainey)
Kaiser needs to have a conversation about Bryce Dallas Howard's bangs, but you know what? I kind of dig 'em. I appreciate the bang resurrection. (Celebitchy)
Everyone bookmark this tweet, and then retweet it en masse when Michael Cohen flips.
Anyone heard from Stormy Daniels lately? Are we done with that fiasco and lie? What next? Oh Cohen is going to FLIP!!! Just like 1513 others the libs say "Dudes gonna flip". Problem is you can't flip on someone that hasn't committed a crime. They just don't seem to get that— Curt Schilling (@gehrig38) June 13, 2018
I worried that the Ryan Reynolds tweet would not live up to the headline, but it totally does: "Ryan Reynolds Had A Hilarious Response To Kanye West's Offer To Clear His Music For 'Deadpool' (Uproxx)
In an interview with GQ, Rachel Bloom details why she was "devastated" by the way Neil Patrick Harris dismissed her in a tweet during the Tonys, and I totally get what she's saying (and also hope that she also gets 27 million followers).
Neil Patrick Harris, meanwhile, has since apologized:
Sincere apologies to @Racheldoesstuff for my Tony tweet. I failed to research her before pressing 'send', and what I thought was a funny comment in our living room must have been far from funny to read, backstage, mid show. As a performer and a parent, I should have know better.— Neil Patrick Harris (@ActuallyNPH) June 13, 2018
Look, we're still working out the science of what Hollywood reboots are exciting vs distasteful, but GIVE US JORDAN PEELE'S GARGOYLES MOVIE NOW PLEASE. (/Film)
Study Says Most Americans Think God Looks Like Chad from Applebee's. I dunno? I thought God looked like Morgan Freeman, until he got into all that trouble, and now I think God looks like Tilda Swinton (and Satan looks like Eddie Redmayne, obvs.) (The Root)
Amy Seimetz is having a moment. (FSR)
Pete Davidson: You spent way too much on an engagement ring for a woman you've only been dating a month. The three tattoos (including one over the one to your previous ex) may have been too much, too. This is gonna make some really good fodder for "Weekend Update" one day, though. (Lainey)
New Cannonballer Zoe picked up Clifford Simak's The Way Station on iO9's recommendation. This deeply hopeful novel about positive first contact between human and aliens won a Hugo Award in 1964. "It has that
Cold War sensitivity to nuclear annihilation, but there's also a lot about how the connections with nature and other human beings make us human." Are you familiar with Clifford Simak? Are there other older science fiction writers we ought to rediscover? (Cannonball Read 10)
I hate that these guys agreed to do this for Barstool; I appreciate that they look pretty nonplussed by the whole thing; and I am baffled that the woman on the street only recognizes the guy from Barstool and ... Ed Helms.
