We are ALL Left Shark, you guys. Let’s get to it.
-Speaking of the Superbowl, I still think it was kind of unfair to embarrass Katy Perry like that, because Missy Elliott literally performed circles around her. That being said, a lot of kids didn’t know who she was. Obviously, these are the same kids who are still unfamiliar with Paul McCartney.
–Amy Pascal stepped down at Sony and is becoming is a producer there instead. I’m sure this has NOTHING AT ALL to do with all of those humiliating leaked emails. Nothing at all.
-Speaking of internal kerfuffles, there’s some real shit happening behind the scenes of Fifty Shades of Grey. Namely, the author and director clashed over the majority of the scenes that ended up in the movie, and the two leads clearly hate each other. Defamer has a great quote roundup wherein Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson talk about how terrible this whole experience was, because they’re human beings with a little bit of taste. Guys, this movie is going to be the hottest of messes. Let’s all get drunk and go.
-There is a single silver lining in the whole Fifty Shades situation, and it is that Beyonce has two new remixes of “Crazy in Love” and “Haunted.” Unsurprisingly, they are amazing, and each one is better than the entire movie, probably.
-More music news: there’s a new music edition of Celebrities Read Mean Tweets, and the lesson to be learned is that Psy truly does not give a fuck and he probably never will.
–The Late Late Show on CBS is currently between hosts, and they are getting the weirdest selection of people to host. It’s delightful, honestly. Adam Pally kicked things off this week with Ben Schwartz and it was completely bizarre, and John Mayer followed his lead by interviewing Katy’s Superbowl sharks. I kind of hope they never find a real host, tbh.
–Damon Wayans, Jr. is leaving New Girl. FOR A SECOND TIME. No one cares the second time around, dude.
-Kiernan Shipka, everyone’s favorite Sally Draper, would like to be on Veep. CAN SOMEONE MAKE THIS HAPPEN IMMEDIATELY, PLEASE?!?!?!?!
-And, finally, George R.R. Martin’s original gameplan for Game of Thrones was unearthed this week, and it is a LOT better than Hermione Granger’s last name originally being Puckle. Most importantly, Jon and Tyrion were supposed to be lusting after Arya for the entire series, which is straight up hilarious.
More Oscar profiles this week! And stuff! Yay!
