I really blew (one last kiss) this week and it was CHOCK full of things we should be discussing. So instead of bombarding you with post after post of old news, I’ve decided to create one mega post and highlight the week’s events. I’ve also decided that if you like this, perhaps we will start doing it always. After the jump, let’s kick off the first annual Pop! Weekly Wrap Up.
Let’s start with Sunday. Normally I would say eh ignore it nothing really happens. But this Sunday was no ordinary Sunday. This Sunday the British told us we could all suck it because they had amazing talent and they didn’t care if it was too insider-y for you trolls to understand. Oh. And they brought the Spice Girls back together. So there’s that.
A few other things happened on this fateful day:
Miley Cyrus decided to chop off all her hair and allow the Internet enough time to completely trash it before coming out and saying she did it so she could donate her hair to cancer patients. Shame you fools, shame. The topic is MUCH debated. There’s the general dislike, the qualms of “Oh! You were just recently looking absolutely stunning!” – Me. There was the mockery, Ellen did her own version of the hair. There was the Bitch Stole My Look reaction: Agyness Deyn tweeted to Miley that she liked the hair, but you know that translation was more of the “oh I see you” variety. And then obv the fashion peeps were all about it because it was edgy and new. Most importantly, MY personal opinion: I’m not ready to take an official side. While I remain open minded, I will need visual evidence of how she dresses the look. In one month’s time you will have my decision.
And finally on Sunday (whew we’re only on Sunday!) Jennifer Aniston announced her engagement to Justin Theroux. And then everyone in the tabloid industry wanted to cry because they can’t write anymore “Poor Jenn” stories. Fingers crossed he leaves her at the altar!*
*(I DO NOT REALLY THINK THIS. THIS IS MY WITTY IMPRESSION OF TABLOID EDITORS. DON’T SET THAT BAD KARMA ON ME.)
Monday was pretty much dedicated to digesting Sunday’s events.
The night before Robert Pattinson made his post-cheated on debut and went on The Daily Show where Jon Stewart was as lovely as expected. You know RPatz’s people were thanking Jaysus that they had already booked that interview first.
On Wednesday Vulture announced that Michael J. Fox had a series and all the networks were chomping at the bits to get it. There are so many reasons this should make you happy. So let’s break it down.
Downton Abbey released (ok it was bootleg) its Season 3 trailer and apparently everyone’s broke as a joke. And obv Mary and Matthew still won’t be together. It starts up soon in the UK, but won’t come to the US till January. If any of you British bastards spoil this for me I will renounce my love of your country and your culture. Seriously. I’m already making a list of all the twitter accounts I’m going to have to unfollow. Ugh.
Jimmy Kimmel got engaged to his girlfriend. Confession: Jimmy Kimmel is my ultimate celebrity crush so this one hurt a little. Do with that what you will.
Taylor Swift released her new single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” YOU ARE NOT 16. That is really my main problem with every thing she does. Until she comes out with a “Tik Tok”-esque song, I refuse to appreciate her.
Chris Brown and Drake are being sued for $16 million for their bar brawl.
Also this week: Neon Hitch released her new single! And maybe this will finally be what breaks her through. She’s been on the edge of
stardom for FOREVER. I’m tired of pushing you on friends. JUST GET FAMOUS ALREADY. glory
Anywho. It is now Friday. So enjoy this song and have a great weekend. Hopefully you did, in fact, just get paid.
PS: Isn’t it so tragic seeing Wade Robinson in those dance rehearsals scenes. I want to grab my screen and yell “HE’S SLEEPING WITH YO GIRL, JUSTIN. DON’T TRUST HIM.”
PPS: My sisters and I used to pretend that we were hookers and sing “Just Got Laid” to choreographed dance moves. We were totes normal.
Ok I’m done for real biiiii
