T Lo’s Weekend Pop Culture Homework

Posted on March 09, 2018

 

Darlings, it’s a fairly short reading list this weekend, because ol T & Lo never got a chance to do much but their Oscars coverage. Still, we found a few bits here and there that intrigued us. First up: All things A Wrinkle in Time:

Ciara Wardlow at the Hollywood Reporter examines “The Idealized Diversity of ‘A Wrinkle in Time.” “There’s no racial identity angst in Ava DuVernay’s film, and that’s both refreshing and unrelated to reality.”

 

Jamie Broadnax at Black Girl Nerds reviews A Wrinkle in Time“I smiled throughout this entire film because it gave me a sense of joy.”

 

Estelle Tang interviews the film’s costume designer Paco Delgado at Elle: “A Wrinkle in Time’s Costume Designer on Dressing Oprah, Reese Witherspoon, and Mindy Kaling.”

 

Ashley Weatherford at The Cut sits down with the film’s beauty team: “The Story Behind A Wrinkle in Time’s Wild Beauty Looks.” “Oprah said we could do anything.”

Moving on to other random matters…

 

The New York Times sat down with everyone’s favorite sassy Olympian and asked him “Adam Rippon Is Famous. What Now?

 

Nicole Phelps at Vogue takes a look at the flip side of drag with  “Gender Renegades: Drag Kings Are Too Radical for Prime Time.”

 

Zev Chevat at Racked notices what happens when you put women creators in charge of comics, “Clothes in Comic Books Have Gotten a Lot Better.”

 

E. Alex Jung at Vulture sits down with the First Lady of Drag Race: “Michelle Visage is Tough Because She Loves You.”

 

And of course, we’ll be bingeing our way through Jessica Jones all weekend.

Peace out, Girl Scouts!
