T.J. Miller and Ryan Reynolds bury the hatchet
Shortest celebrity feud ever. Comedian T.J. Miller says he has reconciled with Ryan Reynolds just days after declaring he'll never work with his Deadpool co-star again. Miller recently told Adam Corolla he had a "really weird" moment with Reynolds on Deadpool when the actor was "horrifically mean to me" while in character, adding, "It's weird that he hates me." But speaking on the Jim Norton & Sam Roberts Show, Miller revealed Reynolds emailed him right after those comments made headlines. "He emailed me the next day," Miller said. "It was a misunderstanding. So I emailed him back, and now it's fine." It wasn't clear if this affects Miller's previous declaration that he "would not work with him again," though given Miller has been accused of sexual assault and was arrested for calling in a fake bomb threat on a train, there's definitely some "you can't fire me, I quit" energy going on there.
Silk Sonic to 'gracefully, humbly' and 'sexually' bow out of the Grammys
Silk Sonic won't be leaving the door open to any 2023 Grammy wins. The duo of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak won't be submitting their album An Evening With Silk Sonic for consideration at the 2023 Grammys, even though they were expected to pick up numerous nods, Mars revealed to Rolling Stone. "We truly put our all on this record, but Silk Sonic would like to gracefully, humbly and most importantly, sexually, bow out of submitting our album this year," Mars said. "We hope we can celebrate with everyone on a great year of music and partake in the party. Thank you for letting Silk Sonic thrive." At the 2022 Grammys in April, Silk Sonic's "Leave the Door Open" won four awards, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year. But Mars tells Rolling Stone that after these wins, "We'd be crazy to ask for anything more." So when it comes to 2023 Grammy predictions, we won't, in fact, be talking about Bruno.
M.I.A. compares Alex Jones' lies to vaccine promotion
Good sense is missing in action over on a certain rapper's Twitter feed. M.I.A. has leaned even harder into being an anti-vaxxer with a controversial tweet suggesting that "Alex Jones lying about the Sandy Hook massacre" and "celebrities promoting COVID-19 vaccines" is the exact same thing. "If Alex Jones pays for lying shouldn't every celebrity pushing vaccines pay too?" the "Paper Planes" singer tweeted. This was in response to Jones being ordered to pay almost $1 billion for falsely claiming the Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax. Naturally, M.I.A.'s tweet sparked plenty of controversy, though she's actually an early anti-vaccine adopter, having declared as early as April 2020, "If I have to choose the vaccine or chip I'm gonna choose death." Mamma M.I.A…
Kim Kardashian tells her grandmother she had sex 'in honor of you'
Kim Kardashian is keeping her grandmother up with her sex life, whether she likes it or not. The latest episode of The Kardashians includes a bizarre moment in which Kardashian tells her 88-year-old grandmother she inspired her to have passionate sex with Pete Davidson in front of a fireplace. "Pete and I were staying at the Beverly Hills Hotel last weekend, and we were sitting in front of the fireplace just talking for hours," Kardashian told her grandmother, MJ. "And I was like, 'My grandma told me you really live life when you have sex in front of the fireplace, and so we had sex in front of the fireplace in honor of you." The Skims founder acknowledged it's "creepy to think about your grandma before having sex," though her grandmother said, "I was younger once. I was younger once." Here's a fun fact: Did you know it's possible to not say things sometimes?
Olivia Wilde decries 'Don't Worry Darling' sex scenes 'overshadowing everything else'
The Don't Worry Darling press tour is a full-on slasher movie villain at this point in that it just keeps coming back. Olivia Wilde has, for some reason, given another interview about the film, this time with Elle, in which she decried the "sideshow" surrounding it. "It is shocking to see so many untruths about yourself traded as fact," she said, agreeing with Florence Pugh that "we didn't sign up for a reality show." She also decried all the "attention" given to the film's sex scenes, "overshadowing everything else" about the movie. "When Florence pointed that out that this film is so much bigger and better than just the sex scenes, I was so happy that she said that because I feel the same way," Wilde said. Maybe Olivia Wilde can take this up with the person who talked up the film's sex scenes in previous interviews: Olivia Wilde.
