Princess Kate stepped out in London in her best Meghan-copying beige

Princess Kate stepped out in London in her best Meghan-copying beige
I cannot even imagine being this embarrassing, this desperate and this obvious. As soon as we got a good look at the Duchess of Sussex?s spectacular Invictus style, we knew that the Princess of Wales had added each one of Meghan?s looks to a certain Meghan mood-board and copykeening lookbook. It literally only took Kate a matter of days before she furiously copykeened Meghan?s beige-heavy color palette and her trouser-heavy wardrobe. Can this woman get her own life and her own style? She?s 41 years old and she?s doing this. These pics are from today, Kate visited Streets of Growth in London. Her suit is from Roland Mouret.

Kate Middleton is checking in on a youth support charity inspired by an American organization that she and Prince William visited in Boston last year. The Princess of Wales, 41, headed to east London on Tuesday to visit Streets of Growth, a charity that works to transform the lives of young people.

The group ? which strives to re-engage people aged 15 to 25 who find themselves socially isolated, bullied or trapped in a cycle of exploitation, violence and criminality ? was inspired by a visit to Roca in Boston, which Kate and William, both 41, visited in December last year.

There was some symmetry to Tuesday morning?s visit, which came as Prince William was stateside promoting his Earthshot Prize in New York City. It marked his first time returning to the U.S. since William and Kate visited London for the Earthshot Prize awards ceremony in December.

Some would say ?symmetry? and others would say ?overshadowing her dumb husband?s stupid ?CALL ME A STATESMAN? trip.? It?s very strange that Kate is making a point of doing events in England while William is in New York, especially given William?s well-documented rage at being overshadowed by family members. This says to me that Kate actually wanted to go on this New York trip but he told her no, and she organized these events to get back at him and ruin his headlines. Just a theory. How the worm turns.

Katy Perry sold her entire five-album catalog for $225 million: too low??

Katy Perry sold her entire five-album catalog for $225 million: too low??
While Katy Perry?s music is rarely my favorite, I acknowledge that the woman has some huge hits. Her catalog is extensive and well-known. She performed at the Super Bowl Half-Time show and she had to leave out several of her hits because there were just too many. I?m sure her masters are worth a fortune. So why does it sound like she sold them for much too small a figure? Katy is the latest in a long line of musical artists to sell their masters and catalog to a private-equity firm. The price? $225 million. As I said, it sounds way too low.

Litmus Music, a catalog rights company backed by private-equity giant Carlyle Group LP, said on Monday (Sept. 18) it acquired the rights to Katy Perry?s five studio albums released for Capitol Records, including her Grammy-nominated Teenage Dream.

According to sources, Litmus paid $225 million for Perry?s stake in the master recording royalties and music publishing rights to her five albums released between 2008 and 2020 ? One of the Boys, Teenage Dream, PRISM, Witness and Smile. Litmus declined to comment on the deal terms.

Perry?s catalog sale, finalized earlier this year, follows other 2023 music rights deals like Justin Bieber?s $200-million sale to Hipgnosis Songs Capital, demonstrating that household name artists can still command top dollar even as high interest rates moderate investors? appetites for song rights.

From her breakout single ?I Kissed A Girl? in July 2008 to the five chart-topping songs from 2010?s Teenage Dream, Perry has notched a total of nine No. 1s on the Billboard Hot 100. During a musical era that saw major hits from other female pop stars like Lady Gaga, Beyonc, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and Adele, Perry remains the first woman and only second artist ever (after Michael Jackson) to send five songs from the same album to the summit of the Hot 100. Those songs are ?California Gurls,? ?Firework,? ?E.T.,? ?Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)? and ?Teenage Dream.?

[From Billboard]

Billboard also mentioned her Vegas residency, which was pretty lucrative for her $168 million for about four months. Plus, she?s done so many huge tours over the years, although she hasn?t toured since 2018 and now she?s a mom. Oh, and she?s getting $25 million a year for American Idol? My point is that Katy isn?t poor, far from it. We?ve never heard stories about Katy drowning in debt or spending crazy money. She just sold her catalog for no real reason, I guess because they made her an offer. Did her manager not tell her that the bid sounds pretty low?

Maybe Katy decided to pack up her career after the mess at the coronation? I still can?t get over the absolute desperation of Charles and Camilla.

Drew Barrymore has put her talk show on hold before the season premiere

Drew Barrymore has put her talk show on hold before the season premiere
On Friday Drew Barrymore posted a teary video to Instagram (below) where she continued to defend her decision to bring back her talk show amid the ongoing writer and actor strikes. She tread a lot of familiar ground, including that it was bigger than her, if she could make a show work during the pandemic then why not now, and that she owned her decision. The video was taken down not long after posting, but was saved for posterity?s sake by others on the interwebs. Well, by the time I was finishing jotting down my notes to cover her video, Drew had capitulated and announced that her show would not return until the strikes were over. Maybe it was being put in the same conversation as Bill Maher, maybe fellow Charlie?s Angels gave her an ass whooping, maybe ET phoned Earth to scold her. Whatever the final straw was for Drew, it?s having a ripple effect across daytime talk shows:

?I have listened to everyone, and I am making the decision to pause the show?s premiere until the strike is over,? she wrote on Instagram. ?I have no words to express my deepest apologies to anyone I have hurt and, of course, to our incredible team who works on the show and has made it what it is today. We really tried to find our way forward. And I truly hope for a resolution for the entire industry very soon.?

?We support Drew?s decision to pause the show?s return and understand how complex and difficult this process has been for her,? a spokesperson for CBS Media Ventures told Variety in a statement.

?The Drew Barrymore Show? will air repeats for the foreseeable future, a knowledgeable individual told Variety. Episodes that were taped last week when the show went back into production will not air.

The WGA has canceled planned pickets of ?The Drew Barrymore Show.? Striking guild members will be picketing ?The View,? which is a WGA-covered struck show, on Monday.

Barrymore faced swift blowback for her decision to resume taping her talk show despite Hollywood?s ongoing labor strikes. Variety reported on Saturday that part of Barrymore?s choice to bring back the show stemmed from contractual obligations with station partners across the daytime TV business. As part of the fallout, National Book awards rescinded Barrymore?s invitation to host its upcoming annual award ceremony.

As long as hosts or guests don?t discuss or promote struck work, Barrymore wouldn?t have been violating SAG-AFTRA rules. (The Network Code agreement allows daytime hosts to perform hosting duties.) But Barrymore?s show operates with union writers, so new episodes would have required moving forward without their writers on staff.

At the time, the WGA condemned Barrymore?s decision in a statement, saying, ?Drew Barrymore should not be on the air while her writers are on strike fighting for a fair deal. In reality, shows like this cannot operate without writing, and that is struck work.? The Guild has not responded to request for comment about Barrymore?s reversal in programming.

Following Barrymore?s pause, CBS? ?The Talk? and ?The Jennifer Hudson Show? also announced they would no longer return on Monday as planned. Other daytime talk shows that have returned this season include ?The View,? which has been airing without its writers, as well as ?Live With Kelly and Mark? and ?Tamron Hall Show,? neither of which have writers and are not covered by the WGA.

Barrymore apologized in a now-deleted video, in which she says she owned the choice to bring back her show. ?I certainly couldn?t have expected this kind of attention,? she said. ?I wanted to do this because as I said, this is bigger than me, and there are other people?s jobs on the line.?

[From Variety]

?I certainly couldn?t have expected this kind of attention.? Really?!? Shouldn?t there be at least three people on her payroll whose job it is to expect something like this? In the four-minute video where Drew said this, she also claimed that she does not have a PR machine behind her. I find that very hard to swallow, but whoever is on PR for Drew and the show has really messed up. Like Ive said before, it?s incredible to see how Drew and her people have, in the span of a week, squandered all the positive public image she had earned with her show.

On the plus side, at least now we have a trifecta of CBS talk shows on hiatus. Why is that a boon? Because CBS is part of Paramount. In addition to CBS, Paramount is also parent to BET, Comedy Central, CW, MTV, Nickelodeon, Showtime, and VH1. That?s nine studios right there that are in bed together, and one of them has an increased incentive for their AMPTP representation to find a resolution with the WGA and SAG-AFTRA. And that is how striking works.

Sitting here lying like this with that ugly ass wallpaper, Drew Barrymore have you no shame????
