Aquaria won RuPaul’s Drag Race and I’m happy, but before that I’m mad about homophobic straight black women, U.S. immigration policy, and a homophobic Christian minister. I also talk about hot famous men I would have as a friend or as a lover and about doubt when it comes to God’s Promises.
There has been so much going on, though. I mean, we got: Your favorite female rapper based upon your lesbian or gay male preferred sexual position; Immigration issues; Anthony Kennedy’s weird retirement from SCOTUS; Antwan Rose; a bunch of stuff that isn’t visible in the news; civility; Tessa Thompson describing what sounds like a “situationship” with Janelle Monae; and Evangelical Christian Trump supporters get read for filth by Benjamin L. Corey.
Enjoy this week’s discussion with @blowticious and me discussing how she wrote a book as a child and how hypervisibility online does not equate to the same kind of fame as celebrity; Donald Trump; North Korea; Jesus; Pose; LGBT shows; Christianity and Pulse nightclub.
Variety should have told Damien “No” to his request to share with Barry Jenkins and done one for Barry Jenkins and Moonlight winning Best Picture. Let the two movies stand on their own. Basically, Variety, stop All Lives Matter-ing Moonlight and blowing up a mistake to be more than what it was.
HBCUs didn’t simply start because of unequal access to education. It was unequal because people were denied attending because of the color of their skin. To not say that first and foremost is whitewashing history to absolve your conservative ideology of any historical wrongdoing.
The theme of the album is making lemonade out of life handing you lemons and appears to be telling of her struggles with Jay Z’s infidelities. Whether it’s true or not, I don’t know, but it made for a compelling story. This is all probably just smart marketing.
I really hate myself and my life choices right now. Why? Because I’m writing a thinkpiece about two pop stars because people outside of their industry are commenting on their antics at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) last night, and I am not a strong fan of either.
