Harry Styles’ cover… SNL hosts announced… Kim K’s favorite sister… Demi Lovato throws shade… and Will Peter Weber be the new Bachelor?
Harry Styles is on the cover of “Rolling Stone” looking all Harry Styles. In the article, he talks about recording his next album while dealing with his breakup with French model Camille Rowe. That resulted in his album being “all about having sex and feeling sad.” Harry said psychedelic drugs played a big part of the recording process. He told how he and his crew would “do mushrooms, lie down on the grass, and listen to Paul McCartney’s ‘Ram’ in the sunshine.” But during one mushroom episode, Harry said he bit off the tip of his tongue and tried to sing with blood gushing out of his mouth. Keep that in mind when you’re listening to his album, children.

Saturday Night Lives returns on Sept. 28 with Woody Harrelson hosting and Billie Eilish as his musical guest. Among the other big reveals so far for season 45 —
Oct. 5 — “Fleabag” actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Taylor Swift
Oct. 12 — David Harbour from “Stranger Things” and Camila Cabello
Nov. 2 — Kristen Stewart
Dec. 21 — Eddie Freakin’ Murphy
This is the first time Eddie has hosted since 1982! He was still one of the Not Ready for Prime Time Players when Nick Nolte bailed at the last minute and Eddie stepped in. He left SNL in 1984 to become a huge movie star and didn’t come back to the SNL stage until a little over 4 years ago for his awkwardly disastrous appearance at the 40th Anniversary Special. But Eddie’s ready to get his groove back. He’s now filming the sequel to “Coming to America” and he recently told Jerry Seinfeld that he wants to return to standup comedy.
Kim Kardashian West is on the cover of “Vogue Arabia” and her husband Kanye did the interview for the article that accompanied it. Kanye asked Kim to name her favorite sister and she said, “It changes, just like friends or relationships go in and out. I think this year has been a really strong Kim and Khloeyear.” She also talked about studying to become a lawyer. Kim said, “There is a misconception that I don’t actually have to study and that I’ve bought my way into getting a law degree – that’s absolutely not true… Being underestimated and over-delivering is my vibe.” Kanye asked his wife her opinion on money and fame. Kim said, “Money was always the goal but I was obsessed with fame, like, embarrassingly obsessed… I do agree that fame can be addictive.” And with the fame came the money. Kim has an estimated net worth of $370M.
You can google who won all the VMAs last night and check out the performance highlights, but did you catch the shade Demi Lovato seemed to be throwing at Taylor Swift? Right after Taylor won her second award of the night, Demi posted on her Instagram Stories, “I skipped the VMAs for a REASON.” Demi followed that up with, “Well that and I just hate award shows” and she added a crying-laughing emoji. So about a month ago, Scooter Braun bought Taylor’s old record label and all the rights to the music she recorded under it, and Demi came out on Scooter’s side. In her defense, Demi just signed a management deal with Scooter earlier this year, so she’s being loyal to her team. But now the Swifties and the Lovatics fans are going at each other on social media, and it has gotten super ugly. But it turns out Demi’s “REASON” may not have been Taylor after all. Before that post, Demi had been teasing her fans about a super secret project she’s been working on, and apparently that one about skipping the VMAs posted at just the right time for people to assume it was directed at Taylor.
Peter the Pilot is reportedly going to be the next Bachelor, unless we raise a big enough stink and riot in the streets in support of Mike! In the show’s 17 years, there’s never been a black Bachelor. Choosing Mike would be ground-breaking territory! I get it…boring, basing, borderline creepy Pilot Pete is the favorite of SOME. But come on, ABC!! However Reality Steve says Peter is basically a done deal. He tweeted, “When the “Bachelor” announcement is officially made (guessing next week or the following), it will be Peter Weber. Not too surprising. That’s who I’ve said I thought it would be for the last month. This isn’t isn’t a guess, a prediction, or ‘most likely.’ It’s him.” UGH!!!! Among those who feel like I do about it are these tweeters….Someone going by “Mike For Bachelor or We Riot” tweeted, “If the producers are worried that MIKE FREAKING JOHNSON can’t carry the show then why in the world would they pick Peter white bread Weber ?!!?” Another posting as “Bachelor Nation Unite tweeted, “ABC is racist and Bachelor franchise needs more diversity.” Among a couple of other tweets, “EVERYONE LIVING ON THIS PLANET: We want #MikeForBachelor!!!!! ABC: Peter Weber is the next bachelor” and “I love Peter Weber I really do but I feel like his season of the bachelor will just be Ben Higgins 2.0.”
