In TMI rant, Andy Murray shares he's 'never once' spent more than 7 minutes in the bathroom
The U.S. Open began in New York City on Monday, and already there's drama. Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray lost in the first round against Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece, prompting the Brit to slam his opponent for taking two conspicuous "longer than seven-minute" bathroom breaks during their four-and-a-half-hour match. Murray even vented (er, bragged?) to a supervisor that "it's never once taken me that long to go to the toilet, ever." He later told the press, "It's just disappointing because I feel [the delays] influenced the outcome of the match," adding "I have zero time for that stuff at all and I lost respect for him." Murray wasn't letting it go, either, tweeting later, "It takes Stefanos Tsitipas twice as long to go [to] the bathroom as it takes Jeff Bazos [sic] to fly into space." But Murray, of all people, ought to know that when you've gotta go, you've gotta go: In 2012, he was in danger of losing a final to Novak Djokovic only for a bathroom break pep-talk to turn his game around.
Timothée Chalamet is obsessing over the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer too
It might surprise you to learn that Timothée Chalamet — the human personification of the city of Montreal with a "Mensa-level IQ" — has opinions about the Spider-Man multiverse. But the actor, who appears alongside Zendaya in the forthcoming adaptation of Dune, couldn't help but gush over his co-star's other project during an interview with Deadline. "She's doing such incredible work and is just trailblazing her own path, and she's so, so cool," Chalamet raved of Zendaya. "She also happens to be in the most-watched trailer of the moment, too, for Spider-Man: No Way Home. I cannot wait for that movie, and I was there, by the way, with everybody else, clicking through the trailer frame by frame looking for clues." Now someone just needs to ask Timmy for his theories about Electro...
Drake unveils emoji-laden Certified Lover Boy cover art
How do you visually capture the Certified Lover Boy energy? If you're Drake, it's with the pregnant woman emoji — 12 of them, to be exact. The cover art for the rapper's upcoming album, due Friday, features a dozen pregnant emoji women with varying skin tones, hair colors, and shirts. It was designed by Damien Hirst, and ridiculed by ... everyone. Lil Nas X spoofed the art, tweeting a similar image but with pregnant men. An Instagram page dedicated to Drake updates noted the Hirst design was 1 out of 2, hinting more art is on the way. Twelve baby emojis, perhaps?
Scott Disick seemingly tries to create a club for Kourtney Kardashian's jealous exes
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker have been living their best lives in Italy, making out on a boat, eating gelato while holding hands, and attending fashion shows. A bitter Scott Disick apparently DM'd a photo of their Italian PDA to Kardashian's ex, Younes Bendjima, in an attempt to shade her. Bendjima posted a screenshot, revealing Disick wrote: "Yo is this chick ok!???? Broooo like what is this. In the middle of Italy." Though Disick himself is no stranger to flaunting his relationship, having made headlines with a racy picture he shared of his 19-year-old girlfriend. Bendjima responded, "Doesn't matter to me as long as she's happy PS: i ain't your bro." For good measure, he added, "Keep the same energy you had about me publicly, privately." Maybe this public shaming will encourage the Lord to find some peace.
Evan Rachel Wood sends message to fellow survivors following Kanye's collab with Marilyn Manson
Kanye West "achieved peak jackass-dom" last week according to Slate when he invited not only DaBaby on stage during his final Donda listening party but "also Marilyn Manson, the 1990s schlock-shock-rock singer now facing suits from four women as well as a police investigation for a long list of allegations of sexual assault." In particular, Westworld actress Evan Rachel Wood — who earlier this year accused Manson of "grooming me when I was a teenager" and "horrifically [abusing] me for years" — had no patience for West's stunt. On Monday night, Wood performed a cover of The New Radicals' "You Get What You Give," raising her middle finger during the lyrics "Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson / You're all fakes / Run to your mansions / Come around, we'll kick your asses." Wood later posted a clip of the moment on Instagram, writing, "For my fellow survivors who got slapped in the face this week. I love you. Don't give up."
