Week That Was (Nov 25 – Dec 2)

First of all – IT’S DECEMBER, so that’s a thing. Second of all, it was a biiiiig week and I am wiped out. This is gonna be a lightning round of updates so buckle up. Edit: I lied. I guess I had some rambling in-depth feelings to work through despite my exhaustion. Duh, I already covered the biggest news of the week. Clicky click the link for all the Harry and Meghan excitement as word of their engagement first broke. Since then, we’ve had some updates. They are getting married at St. George…

Week That Was (Nov 18 – Nov 24)

Phewwww. What a week. Some bombs were dropped and they dropped hard – including but not limited to; more shocking reveals in the constant dismantling of Hollywood’s toxic systemic abuse, some old popular favourites proving to be incredibly problematic, oh yeah, and Justice League landed at the box office ahahahaha hahaha haha. I crack myself up. Let’s launch in shall we? One of the biggest icky stories of the week was John Lasseter taking a 6-month “leave of absence” from Pixar Studios (which he co-founded and where he is incredibly powerful). He…

Week That Was (Nov 4 – Nov 11)

Hmmm what happened this week in the land of pop culture? The Hollywood rapist list grows, the maybe-final-ep of UNHhhh landed on my birthday (bittersweet), and Britney Spears is an artist now. You know, the usual. First off, some more names to add to the list of gross abusers in LaLa Land. Ed Westwick has now been accused by two women of rape, Charlie Sheen was probably confirmed as the perpetrator of a long-existing rumour that he was the king of a pedo ring that preyed on young boys in Hollywood, Louis CK was outed (AGAIN) as…

Week That Was (Oct 28 – Nov 3)

Another week, another slew of gross men in Hollywood who have been revealed as abusers. Really keen for the focus to eventually shift onto literally every other industry of all time as well as this is NOT unique to LaLa Land. Also Halloween happened and there mayyyy have been some celeb romantic reconciliations coz…’tis the season I guess? The holiday season? Where people remember that they love each other and forget all the awful things about the other person that made them end their relationship. SEEMS HEALTHY. Dustin Hoffman disappointed a loooooot of people when news hit…

Week That Was (Oct 13 – Oct 20)

Phew. It’s been a while huh? Is there even a point in wrapping up this week? Every day seems to just result in new gross details about Harvey Weinstein, and this week is no different. But there were also some definite bright spots as well. Balance, I guess. Let’s try wrap this thing up shall we? Today, Lupita Nyong’o shared her experience of being assaulted by Harvey Weinstein in the New York Times. It is as gross and disturbing as so many of the other accounts and your heart will break and then sink…

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…
