This years Oscar Swag Bags… Jared Leto turned down by models… Jerry O’Connell spoofs Shia LaBeouf… Rivals Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj released music same day… and Drake doesn’t like Macklemore’s apology
Even if you lose at the Oscars, you can still walk away with an awesome “Everybody Wins at the Oscars” gift bag worth over $55K!! Among the more extravagant items, a $15K tour of Japan, a $9K Best of Vegas tour package, and $6K of pet food.
Jared Leto struck out with the ladies at Fashion Week in NYC! He sent over his female friend over to ask for two models’ phone numbers. They turned him down flat. How stupid was that? He’s an Oscar nominee. One of them could’ve been his date and maybe could’ve snagged one of those gift bags!
Jerry O’Connell is having a little fun at Shia La Beouf’s expense. Right next door to Shia’s “#IAmSorry” exhibit in LA, Jerry set up his “IAmSorryToo” exhibit. He also wore a bag on his head, but unlike Shia’s “I’m not famous anymore” Jerry’s said, “Super Famous.”
There is no love lost between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. It just so happens that both ladies released their new songs and music videos yesterday, and Mariah showed up at a radio station to promote it — bringing her own lighting crew, thank you very much!! When one of the DJs asked her about Idol, Mariah said, “I was a professional on that show, and that’s all I have to say.” Another DJ said, “Nicki was late, though,” and Mariah said, “Who? I don’t even remember what that was. That was a moment in my life that I’m just going to press delete.”
Drake told Rolling Stone that he thinks Macklemore apologizing to Kendrick Lamar for “stealing” the Grammy for best rap album was whack. He especially didn’t like that Macklemore took a screen shot of his private apology to Kendrick and posted it for the world to see. Drake said, If you feel you didn’t deserve it, go get better — make better music. Why do that? Why feel guilt? You think those guys would pay homage to you if they won?”
