Pop Style Opinionfest: The Big Celebrity Stories of the Week and What They Mean

Posted on November 05, 2021

HOT CELEBRITY GOSSIP… is exactly what this week’s podcast is NOT about!

Oh, sure; we talk about whether Kim Kardashian is dating Pete Davidson, how Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie use the press to attack each other, and whether Chris Pratt was trolling when he inadvertently (or not?) dissed his first wife Anna Farris while praising his second one, Katherine Schwarzenegger. But we’re less interested in what these people are doing and thinking in their so-called private lives as we are in the way the public responds to them. We don’t quite get to the point where we’re defending any of the people involved, but we do think some healthy skepticism and a big dose of context is required when the public confuses fandom with moral stances.

All that PLUS: Our thoughts on the Wicked casting news with Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo! Tom’s thoughts on why Eternals was always likely to receive a relatively cool response and Lorenzo’s thoughts on why he loves Josh O’Connor so much!

 

 

Just a whole lot of stargazing from a couple of cynical queens, darlings. Thank you once again for listening!
