Welcome back to another edition of our Roundabout, let’s not waste anytime shall we! Early this morning the rap Legend Eminem dropped another surprise album just like he did back in 2018 when he released Kamikaze now he released Music To Be Murdered By where he continues his attack on the world that said he was washed up and threw some bars at people that attempted to diss him for his previous album insults. This is the rap legend 11th studio album and 2020 also marks his 21st year in the rap game, how crazy is it that he still going strong congrats!
Here is some sad news we learn this week and if you are an wrestling fan then you know the name. This pass week Rocky Johnson passed away. Now many of the younger fans will know him as The Rock’s father but he in his own right was his own person and made a name for himself, he got into a business and broke color barriers and paved the way for his son and many others as well and for the family here at Smash we are sorry for your loss.
Wendy Williams from The Wendy Williams Show in under fire for making a comment regarding Oscar winning Actor Joaquin Phoenix’s cleft, she basically said he look sexy in a weird way or something in that order, I am not fan of her show nor do I ever watch but I will say this much, these comments don’t make her a bad person or anything like that. I don’t believe she deserves to get any backlash for but social media took it upon themselves to take it an extra step. Now She did have to apologize for it but still she wasn’t mocking him or anything like that, let’s grow up people.
Will Smith has been a busy man in the passed year or so. We got Bad Boys three opening this week which has to be the final film of the series but he did say something that caught my attention. He admitted that during the promotional tours he sometimes has to pretend to like his movies though I don’t believe he admitted which films he didn’t like. Will has a long career in film but he has had plenty of misses. Does this really shock you that some people have to do this? I mean there are just as many of bad films as there good films in one’s career, they can’t like every single film they star in.
Justin hates Tom Cruise but I am pretty sure he likes Jack Reacher, well good news is Reacher will be coming back but not in a film form instead he will be coming to Amazon Prime and this makes me pumped because here is why the show Jack Ryan has been a hit for Amazon so why not bring in another fan favorite character. Jack Ryan has been in a number of films but never could gain steam so let’s see if magic can strike again!
Sony release the trailer for their film Morbius, which stars Jared Leto as the main character. Sony struck gold with Spider-Man films from Disney and Venom was sleeper hit with that being said Sony really wants to build their villains up and let’s see if this film can be any good!
Okay let’s wrap this up with some humor here and there is a man who is deaf is now suing Porn Hub for not having closed captioning on their porn. Of all the things to sue for and to go public with it has to be funny. I have to wonder what closed captioning would look like with porn, I am guessing a lot single words and letters!

I wan think about something here, how do you steal the spotlight at a art costume fund raiser? Well I think that is something we should ask Jared Leto that because for the second year in a row he is the talk of the town. Here we have it the 2019 Met gala, which is a art fundraiser that as we know it been around since the 40’s. Today it is where celebrities try to show off how artistic they can can dress and how they aren’t artistic. We have celebrities like Kim Kardashian and her sisters who want to use porn like dresses and call it art to the very Artistic Lady gaga. With that being said once again How did Jared Leto steal the show?
First like I mention Jared is on a roll, because this is the second year in a row, Last year when this event was going, he showed up looking like Jesus Christ in Gucci. It made sense because last year theme Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and catholic imagination. But this year theme was Camp: Notes on Fashion, which was a reference to Writer Susan Sontag’s famous 1964 essay which was called Notes on camp.
Leto showed up in a long sleeve silk gown which was diamond encrusted detail along the bodice. Now it was nice but it didn’t stand out, what did stand out was the decapitated Wax head that looked like him. Creepy and weird, I know right but that is called art.
As creepy as it is , I am glad he got to shine because after all this is a art fundraiser because when the Kardashians show up usually they take the spotlight because they have to be half nude and Now Kim can gloat about helping release 17 prisoners around the world in three months needless to say it was nice to see the spotlight taken away from anyone who likes to use sexual input to get what they want, Instead Creative and weird took the spotlight.
Each year this fund raiser does raise money, last year it was around 12 million but I can’t say for sure. What I can say is that they are predicting to raise 200 million when this event ends in September, which would be a new record. Either way we will keep an eye on this event to see anymore excitement comes from this. As long as true art keeps on shining we should all sit back and enjoy it!
