Week That Was (Sept 30 – Oct 6)

Full disclosure – I totally forgot about wrapping up the week this week. When I wracked my brain to update y’all on the big pop culture news that happened, I realised no big pop culture news happened. A tragedy happened, and America still has guns. I guessed they missed the memo that banning guns tends to end mass shootings and murder. Then again, if Sandy Hook didn’t change anything in the US, nothing will. But I’m just here for the celebs. Eh. But really, we all need our bright shining lights of joy to…

Week That Was (Sept 23 – Sept 29)

Ugh. I hate the week after the Emmys. It feels like you’re about to launch back into awards season, you have a taste of it all (the fashion, the Pop Culture Moments, the bitter disappointments, the hangover…) and then it’s cruelly snatched away for another 3 months. Sigh. Luckily this week our new future princess got her first proper debut with her boo, the Supers reunited, T Swift got knocked off her perch, RIGGINS IS BACK and Jakey G is on the PR trail. Aaaand unfortunately, maybe one of my favourite shows of all time got cancelled. You…

Week That Was (Sept 16 – Sept 22)

Obviously LOTS HAS HAPPENED this week, because, Emmys. So you’re mostly covered heading into the weekend. But there’s more where that came from. James Corden took the Jimmy Fallon route of how to approach anyone connected with the vile bigoted hateful dangerous Trump organisation and thought it was be *cute* to mack on with Sean Spicer at one of the Emmys after party. Twat. He really should’ve thought twice about it too, because look how well it went for Fallon. Also apparently Spicer’s appearance was Stephen Colbert’s idea. Even Colbert…

The Week That Was (Sept 8 – Sept 15)

Just a quickie this week because we are heading into EMMYS WEEKEND! Aka one of the greatest weekends of the year. The Emmys are great because they’re a lot looser than the Oscars, but they’re also notoriously disappointing with their winners. Honestly if Veep or The Crown win anything else this year I’ll lose my damn mind. Anyway. It’s going to be a big week here at aphroisms because Survivor is heading to 3 nights (OMG) AND there’ll be all the red carpet and awards show shenanigans to cover. I…

The Week That Was (Sept 1 – Sept 7)

Sooooo I’ve kind of dropped the ball on these weekly recaps haven’t I? My bad. I understand that you may have no idea what’s happened in the world of pop culture over the last few weeks (if ONLY you could find this info out elsewhere…like being bombarded with it from all angles at all times and from all devices…) so I’m here to make it right. Today I present to you a mammoth wrap-up of pretty much anything I missed recently with some very colourful language thrown in…

Australian Survivor Recap: Episode 10

Last week – Luke got his revenge on Henry. Will he retain power this week? Will Sum Tribe now dominate all challenges ever of all time because Locky AND Henry? It all remains to be seen. But first! You may have noticed there was no “Week That Was” this week as I was away in Melbourne generally eating and shopping my way through the city and constantly being exhausted, but it doesn’t mean I wasn’t paying attention! In short: Taylor Swift is still really lame and taking zero ownership of her own actions (nobody…

The Week That Was (Aug 12 – 19)

What happened in the land of pop culture this week? A bunch of stuff that left me scratching my head, to be quite honest with you. The first thing that left me BAMBOOZLED was this truly bizarre profile on Elizabeth Olsen (who I love), in the New York Times. Read the whole thing and let me know if you “get” it, because I certainly don’t. And I honestly don’t think I want to. I almost don’t want to ruin it for you, but the final line of the article is “And…

The Week That Was (Aug 5 – Aug 11)

GO HOME, LOVE IS CANCELLED. THERE’S NO POINT TO ANYTHING ANYMORE AND NONE OF US WILL EVER AMOUNT TO ANYTHING OR FIND LOVE AND ENDLESS SUPPORT WE HAVE TO FIND SELF-ACTUALISATION ALONE BUT HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE OR WORTHWHILE WHEN WE KNOW WHAT HAS HAPPENED THIS WEEK? If you hadn’t heard, a Hollywood marriage featuring two people THAT WERE MADE FOR EACH OTHER ended and love died. I don’t even particularly like them that much, but they seemed to truly love and adore each other and if THEY couldn’t make…

The Week That Was (July 29 – Aug 4)

The internet delighted me in more ways than one this week. There’s so much to be thankful for, and most of it involves my boyfriend Idris Elba (no conflict with my girlfriend Katya, don’t worry) who continues to promote his new film and bring me joy. But it’s not allllll about Idris, lots more has happened! But first, my boo thang. Look at how impeccably attired Idris Elba was at the NY premiere of The Dark Tower! Is he even real? Has he been created to be the human embodiment of perfection? Matthew McConaughey…

The Week That Was (July 22 – 28)

Okay, so I guess it was really not a massive week in celeb “gossip” this week, so that’s kinda sad. But you know what else is more sad? Trump started another overwhelmingly offensive dumpster fire on Twitter that made a whole lot of people feel like garbage and was probably only said to distract us from another awful thing he is doing, so that’s worrying. PLUS, on a totally inferior level, I have a sore throat that actually sounds incredibly sexy-husky right now, and I like it so much better than my normal…
