Oh, Caitlyn Jenner. Sometimes I wish you weren’t so “influential.”
At the Time 100 Gala in New York City on Tuesday, the activist/reality star praised Donald Trump for his recent comments about how the government shouldn’t intervene when it comes to bathroom use. He also says Cait could use any bathroom in the Trump Tower, you konw, if she ever wanted to go into that building (Blech).
“This toast, actually started, in a bathroom. Actually, bathroom issues right now in my life seem to be in the forefront. Actually, on that issue I just want to say also – One little trans woman walking down the street had to go, I looked up and who did I see but the Trump Tower. Last week Donald Trump said I could use any bathroom I wanted in the Trump Tower. So of course I veered right in there – took care of myself.”
She went on to joke:
“I obeyed all the rules, I promise you, I didn’t throw any feminine products down the toilet. And it actually worked out quite well. It was very good.”
Ooof. Caitlyn is woman-identified, but she has the soul of an old privileged white man, doesn’t she?
I’d imagine the trans community won’t be too thrilled about this development, given Mr. Trump’s disturbing views on women. What do YOU think of Caitlyn’s support of Trump?
Word to the wise: don’t look like Shia LaBeouf. It can get DANGEROUS!
A New York man is tending to a black eye after he was allegedly punched on the subway because he looks like… drumroll…Shia LaBeouf. His name is Mario Licato and as you can see in the picture above, he kinda does. In any case, he was walking down the subway stairs at the corner of Essex and Delancey streets on Saturday, minding his own biz on his way to a friend’s show when…blam. PUNCHED IN THE FACE!
“I just saw a fist coming at my face,” Licato says. “And the next thing I know I was, like, falling down the stairs and all I heard was, ‘That’s because you look exactly like Shia LaBeouf.’ ”
Licato tells PEOPLE that he was “out cold” for a second and awoke to find his face covered in blood and his glasses broken. He says a couple who witnessed the incident described the assailant as a six-foot or six-foot-three, muscular, “white frat boy.”
“I was like, ‘Am I crazy? Or did he just say that happened because I look like Shia LaBeouf?’ And they were like, ‘That’s exactly what he said,” Licato recounts.
A (very confused) couple helped him to his feet and both the police and EMT officials arrived. Authorities plan to look at surveillance photos from the location, Licato says, adding that he hopes “they figure out who the crazy person was.”As they should. This totally sucks.
That being said, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s Mia Goth.
“Lemonade,” sources said “Becky” is a composite of women Jay Z was rumored to have had liaisons with earlier in his relationship with Beyonce…but everyone should HOLD UP because he’s since changed his ways.
An insider told Page Six: “I don’t think Beyoncé is calling out one girl. It is many girls. The rumors have been around for years.”
But apparently things changed when Blue Ivy was born in 2012.
Explained the source: “Beyoncé had the baby and was like, ‘What am I doing? This is what my dad did to my mom.’ She really looked at herself. Jay is now a great husband, and this is in the past. They went through a rocky patch but things are good again. The video is about finally coming to terms with her strength and their love.”
Meanwhile, other sources think that calling out someone was a deliberate play by the couple to drive sales.
The source said, just like the Bonnie and Clyde characters they created in 2002, “They develop these storylines to sell albums. ‘Lemonade’ is a movie crafted to drive sales. Jay and Beyoncé are entertainers at the top of their game. Do you think Jay would release her album on [his own] Tidal if it really was all about him? He is 100 percent behind this.”
Another insider added, “They’re marketing masters. They’re pros at this. The more attention, the more they sell, the better. All that speculation is to get press when they need it. ‘Lemonade’ is much deeper than infidelity, but that’s the focus. As long as people are talking, they don’t care.”
Page Six kind of has the right idea. This isn’t a project that’s driven the two apart- it’s one that they made together and part of a greater vision of their “Brand.” Kinda gross. IF ONLY IT WEREN’T SO GOOOOOOD!
