Amy Schumer won the Critic’s Choice MVP and while she was gracious enough in accepting the speech, she also kinda stuck it to them AND I LOVE IT.
She used her big, shiny MVP Award as a physical prop, holding it over her midsection when she said:
“I am plus-plus-size actress Amy Schumer. Thank you for this trophy, covering the reason I have to write my own [stuff]. If you’re an actress and you have this area right here, you have to write your own stuff if you want to get it made.”
She goes on to poke fun at her Pirelli calendar shot by Annie Leibovitz, which is fun, too, but I gotta say, I so love her candor and especially when she’s getting recognized. It’s so easy to be on top, forgetting all the hardship and judgement and just remembering the glory. But I love how committed Schumer is to illuminating the gender inequality and body image hypocrisy so rampant in entertainment.
Don McLean, the dude who pretty much wrote one song (but one of the most important songs in pop history!) was arrested for domestic violence early today. Ugh.
Cops in Camden, Maine responded at 2 AM Monday to a 911 call from McLean’s home in the town. When they arrived, the cops arrested the singer for domestic violence assault and after posting $10,000 bail, McLean was released.
McLean performs only occasionally: according to TMZ, the last time at the Maine Lobster Festival back in August. And I guess when he’s not performing he’s being an A hole, so there’s that.
C’mon, Don. You are an icon. This is unacceptable!
What do you think of the “American Pie” singer’s arrest?
Miley Cyrus dropped a clue things are not only back on with former fiance Liam Hemsworth, but they may be continuing what they started back in 2012, when the young couple got engaged!
Miley arrived at JFK Sunday wearing what looks very much like the engagement ring she got from Liam back in the day, (shown here back in 2012). OBVI the two split in 2013, but they’ve been hanging out and MAKING OUT lately and it looks like it might be back on, and the onnest of the on, because ENGAGEMENT RING? WHAT IS HAPPENING?!
