Kylie Jenner attempted the #savagechallenge. Let’s just say it was half-hearted. Like if you’re gonna do it, at least learn the moves.

Jenner ends up shaking her ass a lot. So, play towards your strengths, I guess.
Early on in the development of Pulp Fiction, Quentin Tarantino wanted Michael Madsen to reprise his role from Reservoir Dogs, career criminal Vic Vega, aka Mr. Blonde. Madsen turned down the role to film Wyatt Earp, which I understand he doesn’t regret but almost anyone else in the world would.
This led to John Travolta being cast as Vincent Vega in what was easily his best performance in his entire career, and it led Quentin Tarantino to almost make a prequel tying both films together about the Vega brothers before the events of these films.
Madsen recently filmed a video referencing his role in Reservoir Dogs encouraging people to stay home lest they get their ears cut off.
He also took the opportunity to tell The Hollywood Reporter what we missed out on in that Vega Brothers movie that never got made.
“We were supposed to be in Amsterdam, criminally,” says Madsen of Tarantino’s thoughts. “The picture was going to start out with the two of us being released from prison in different states. And we open up a club in Amsterdam.” In Pulp Fiction, Vincent Vega says he just returned to Los Angeles from Amsterdam.
After Madsen and Travolta got too old to play their younger selves outside of like, that Netflix Wet Hot American Summer prequel, Tarantino had another, even crazier idea that also never came to fruition.
“He had come up with this idea that it would be the twin brothers of Vic and Vincent, who met after the deaths of their siblings,” Madsen says, chucking. “It was very complicated, but when Quentin starts discussing an idea, it’s very easy to go along with it.”
That may sound like some weird, dumb soap opera bullshit, but if anyone could have pulled something like that off, it’s Quentin Tarantino. The man made an episode of CSI that was actually watchable by people under the age of 72, he can basically do anything.
You sign up for some whacky shit when you join social media. Those sites basically make you agree to give them all your data, a couple of fingers, and they can pretty much use anything you upload to them however they want. Yeah, Twitter probably owns all those dick pics you were DMing those Twitch thots.
But what happens when a third-party wants to lay claim to the content you create on social media? This is a question we were grappling with today. It started when Disney made a seemingly innocuous tweet about May 4th, known as “May the Fourth” to Star Wars fans and Cinco de Cuatro to very disappointed Arrested Development fans tuning into the Netflix revival of the once-great series.
Celebrate the Saga! Reply with your favorite #StarWars memory and you may see it somewhere special on #MayThe4th.
— Disney+ (@disneyplus) April 27, 2020
So Disney is planning some sort of publicity thing using tweets for May the Fourth, the unofficial Star Wars day, using your stories about why you love Star Wars.
The problem is Disney has a legal department and that legal department is full of dumb assholes, because they followed that tweet up with this one:
— Disney+ (@disneyplus) April 27, 2020
The above legal language applies ONLY to replies to this tweet using #MayThe4th and mentioning @DisneyPlus. These replies may appear in something special on May the 4th!
— Disney+ (@disneyplus) April 27, 2020
Disney later clarified they were only talking about replies to their original tweet and they weren’t trying to claim some blanket ownership of all tweets using the #MayThe4th hashtag, but they had already awakened the beast.
Fun fact: Disney once tried to buy Twitter but didn’t because Twitter users are too metal and awesome. And Twitter’s eye of Sauron turned on Disney this day.

That’s just a taste of what they got.
It turns out a lot of people get pissed off if you go to the website they waste their life on and seemingly try to lay claim to their content.
Reality TV star Kristin Cavallari is divorcing her husband, former Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. The pair have been married almost seven years and were together almost a decade and they have three kids. It’s sad, but I can’t focus on that because the reason Cavallari gave for wanting a divorce is blowing my mind.
According to TMZ, she said Cutler “is guilty of such inappropriate marital conduct as renders further cohabitation unsafe and improper.”
I don’t know what she means. Is this like a sex thing? It sounds like a weird sex thing, right? She also put in a pre-emptive “no, you” in case Cutler accused her of misconduct, which he didn’t, saying “any misconduct alleged or implied against her in the complaint for divorce was in response to and/or as a result of misconduct on behalf of the Husband.”
What misconduct? What happened that it’s unsafe to cohabitate?
According to People, an insider says… nothing.
“On their recent trip, they already knew they were splitting up,” the source said. “Kristin and Jay had been having problems for a long time. They hadn’t spent much time together in recent months.”
The source also said the breakup had “absolutely nothing to do” with the rumor that Cutler had an affair with Cavallari’s ex-BFF, Kelly Henderson. According to the source, Cavallari and Cutler are simply very “different” and grew apart.
“She has so much on her plate, with her brands and with the show,” the source said. “Jay is not as interested in all of that. She’s so passionate about her work and they couldn’t relate to each other as much. So it pulled them apart.”
Apparently this misconduct was not giving a shit about her clothes or towels or whatever she’s selling. That’s something basically one hundred percent of spouses are guilty of.
She also made some big demands, asking for primary custody of the kids, child support, Jay paying for their healthcare on top of the child support (because we don’t have single payer yet for some reason) and she wants Jay to have a life insurance policy with her as the sole beneficiary. Yeah, that’s a smart move, give your ex-wife a huge payday if you die. She’s absolutely not going to put ground glass in your rice pilaf, right?
Quarantine is hard you guys, and it’s taking it’s toll on celebrity couples. The latest victims, as reported by Us Weekly, is Timothée Chalamet and Lily-Rose Smith.
Closing a chapter. Timothée Chalamet and Lily-Rose Depp have split after dating for more than a year, Us Weekly can confirm.
The Call Me By Your Name actor, 24, appeared in British Vogue’s May 2020 issue, where the publication also noted that Chalamet is single.
I’m going to be honest, I was not expecting to read this headline. Mainly because I didn’t expect Timothée Chalamet to be dating a woman. He spells his first name Timothée for Christ’s sake.
The couple dated for over a year, so it wasn’t like it was an accident, either.
It really is a surprise, though; he took his mom to the Oscars and was the star of the gayest movie I’ve ever seen. You know, Little Women.
I haven’t been this shocked to find out a celebrity was straight since The Venture Brothers outed Martin Gore.
Still, it’s not every day you get to date the second-hottest actress in Yoga Hosers, so good for him.
There have been a lot of conflicting reports about the well-being of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un in the past few days, so here’s what we know for sure: he falls somewhere on a scale between “fine” and “dead.”
It’s not really a lot to go on, but actual news organizations have reported both of these things and everything inbetween over the weekend.
For example, the Sydney Morning Herald reports that Kim is just on the beach hanging out.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has been detected by US sources walking in the port city of Wonsan, days after rumours spread that he was gravely ill after surgery.
South Korean newspapers have published accounts from sources who claim the leader was inspecting construction of the city’s designated tourist area – a sprawling resort complex in the old trading port.
Japan’s Shukan Gendai, however, is reporting Kim is in a vegetative state, which is a polite way of saying brain dead, but in the literal way and not just the way Donald Trump and Joe Biden are brain dead. An NBC News reporter also tweeted and then retracted this brain dead report.
If Kim really is dead, is apparent successor would be his sister Kim Yo-Jong, who seriously looks like a supervillain.

Kim Yo-Jong has become something of a meme but seriously, you look at that picture and tell me that isn’t the look of someone who just lowered James Bond into a tank full of sharks.
We may honestly never know if Kim Jong-Un is alive or dead. I do not put it past North Korea to just slap some sunglasses on him and Weekend at Bernie’s him for a few months while they try to figure out what to do.
So things in New England are going well since Tom Brady left for Tampa Bay. The NFL draft began Thursday night and over the weekend only of the players the Patriots drafted has a tattoo of a white national hate group’s logo.
That’s right, the Patriots’ fifth-round pick, kicker Justin Rohrwasser, has a tattoo of the “Three Percenters,” a far-right group that’s part of the militia movement.

This, of course, has raised some eyebrows. I always had my issues with Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski, but at least those dudes weren’t Nazis.
Rohrwasser has a good explanation, though, reportedly saying “I got that tattoo when I was teenager. I thought it supported military support. Obviously, it supports something I do not want to represent. It will be covered.”

I mean, that makes sense. Who hasn’t accidentally gotten a racist tattoo to support the military?
This is essentially an explanation straight from an episode of The Simpsons. Specifically Season Five, Episode Two, Cape Feare.

I never get tired of that episode.
By the way, the NFL de facto banned Collin Kaepernick for kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality but the dude with the Nazi tattoo just gets to go “I made an oopsie,” and everyone moves on?
There have been a lot of stupid takes about Harvey Weinstein, but Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo had one of the worst. It was so bad that it basically flew under the radar for two years because everyone heard it, moved on as it processed and then this week it finally clicked and everyone went “hold up, that bitch said what?”
what the fvck is wrong with ellen pompeo😭 this is absolutely DISGUSTING pic.twitter.com/rrjoKTSwjR

That video cuts of the question, which Page Six reports was “What do you think needs to happen for this to be a permanent watermark that actually changes the way things are run in Hollywood, certainly internal dynamics forever?” But Jesus Christ her answer.
“I think we bear some responsibility, not all, but it takes two to tango for sure.”
It does take two to tango but if you hold someone down and force them to tango after injecting boner drugs in your tiny, smelly dong then the blame falls entirely on you.
That’s not to blame the victim, that’s just to say — I did go into a room with Harvey Weinstein, I sat at a table with him, I had a probably two and a half hours with him. He never said anything inappropriate to me, he never made any sort of physical advance to me. I wouldn’t have gone into that room at night.
Did you know you can’t get raped in the daytime? Little know fact, much like vampires, rapes only happen at night.
But he did nothing inappropriate toward me. Now had he, I would have picked up that glass and smashed him across the side of the face with it. So I mean, it’s all what we’re willing to tolerate in our self-esteem, and what are we going to put up with, and what are we going to compromise to be liked, to be loved, to be accepted? How bad do we want to be in show business?
“I don’t want to victim-blame here, but I think these women should have simple not gotten raped, that would have solved everything.”
Everyone thinks they’re a hero until they find out they’re not. I’m sure Ellen believes had a Weinstein tried to rape her, she would have fought him off and then done a sick stalefish ollie on her skateboard in the parking lot but no one knows what would happen in that situation. You can only act how you act in the moment and let’s be honest, in addition to having the power to seriously set back people’s careers, which he did do all the time, Harvey Weinstein is a big dude.
Now, this is not to say people shouldn’t take steps to protect themselves, of course you should. But it’s not actually your fault if you’re victimized, and even people who take steps to not be victimized end up being victims. For example, owning a gun to protect yourself from burglars paradoxically makes you more likely to be burglarized because guns are one of the highest-value targets for burglars due to their value and the ease of selling them illegally. You can’t just say “well, it’s your fault bad things happened to you because you made a mistake” because everyone makes mistakes all the time.
Denise Richards wants the daughters she had with Charlie Sheen to have a good relationship with him because she’s afraid if they don’t, they might grow up to be the kinds of people who would date someone like Charlie Sheen.
Here’s what she said about her famous ex on Real Housewives, via Page Six.
“Even though he’s Charlie Sheen, that is still, to them, their dad,” she continued, alluding to his very public history with drugs, partying and women. “I never talk badly about him and I want him to be part of their lives because I met a lot of the women that Charlie entertained and a lot of them had father-daughter issues. And I do not want that to be our girls.”
Yeah, haha, those poor dumb girls who spent the night with the man I was married to for five years, I don’t want my daughters to turn out like them. I feel like the last person in the world to take advice on how to not fuck Charlie Sheen is Denise Richards.
“There’s a lot that the kids don’t know about their dad, and I want to keep it that way,” Richards said during a confessional on Wednesday’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”
Are her kids too dumb to use Google? Have none of their friends mentioned the whole tiger blood thing? The younger of the two is a teenager, they never caught a tabloid headline about their dad? I just don’t see how this adds up
Back to the Future is such a cultural milestone that it’s still totally ingrained in the cultural zeitgeist today despite being 35 years old. Back to the Future came out so long ago that we’re already past the future Marty went to in the second movie and if it came out today, Marty’s trip back to when his parents were teenagers would take him to 1990, five years after the movie came out.
But still, I’d wager your first thought when you see a DeLorean is “time machine.”
Everyone was talking about Back to the Future today because James Gunn described it as a “perfect film,” one with no flaws or mistakes.
Back to the Future SEEMINGLY could be imperfect (why don't Mom and Dad remember Marty?), but I would still argue it's a perfect film because there are reasons why this could conceivably be the case (time protects itself from unraveling, etc). Or maybe I'm in denial. Who knows.
— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) April 21, 2020
Gunn pointed out, in that very tweet, the thing that people have been calling a plot hole for years; the parents don’t notice Marty looks just like their friend Calvin Klein from high school.
In light of the ensuing Twitter argument, Bob Gale, the writer of Back to the Future, wrote to The Hollywood Reporter to explain why this isn’t, in fact, a plot hole.
Gale, the screenwriter for Back to the Future, settled the debate once and for all on Wednesday, telling The Hollywood Reporter, “Bear in mind that George and Lorraine only knew Marty/Calvin for six days when they were 17, and they did not even see him every one of those six days. So, many years later, they still might remember that interesting kid who got them together on their first date.”
He continued, “But I would ask anyone to think back on their own high school days and ask themselves how well they remember a kid who might have been at their school for even a semester. Or someone you went out with just one time. If you had no photo reference, after 25 years, you’d probably have just a hazy recollection.”
Concluded Gale, “So Lorraine and George might think it funny that they once actually met someone named Calvin Klein, and even if they thought their son at age 16 or 17 had some resemblance to him, it wouldn’t be a big deal. I’d bet most of us could look thru our high school yearbooks and find photos of our teen-aged classmates that bear some resemblance to our children.”
Yeah, it’s basically the same conclusion anyone would have gotten to had they thought about it. I haven’t been out of high school for nearly as long as Marty’s parents and I can’t even remember how one the girls I dated spelled her name, much less remember the face of someone I met like, three times. We, the audience, saw Marty leave his parents in 1955 and then pop into the kitchen in 1985 a few minutes later. For the characters in the film, 30 years had passed and they watched Marty grow up in those years.
And come to think of it, the movie wouldn’t make sense if it happened today and Marty’s past was 1990 because Doc Brown would be able to generate the 1.21 gigawatts of electricity needed to power the flux capacitor without a lightning strike. Also, no one would let Michael J Fox drive today.
