Hello World–Anthony here. As usual its time to see what stories in pop culture had us talking this week.
The world of television put on its best prom tuxedos and dresses and gathered for the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
Modern Family cleaned house as usual, taking home a total of three awards. Julie Bowen won best supporting actress in a comedy, Eric Stonestreet took home a statue for best actor in a supporting role and the entire cast took home the Emmy for best television series in the comedy category.
Hosted by funny man Jimmy Kimmel, the show went off without a hitch and everyone remained on his or her best behavior.
Maybe that was because Lindsay “walking tornado” Lohan was in New York and couldn’t make it to the ceremony. We always have next year.
Moving on to a couple who will probably never grace an Emmy stage. The king and queen of thirst were rocked with a scandal this past week when various media outlets reported that a sex tape involving Kanye West and a Kim Kardashian look-a like was buzzing around.
The tape was allegedly filmed before West and Kardashian began dating and is a full 40 minutes long. The female in the video is a dead ringer for the big- booty reality star.
Neither West nor Kardashian has released statements on the matter, but since these two never shy away from attention I’m sure it’s safe to say that they will find a way to turn this scandal into a money maker.
Everyone’s favorite bad girl Rihanna shared some exciting news this week. The singer announced that she will be releasing her seventh studio album in November and the lead single “Diamonds” will be dropping at some point this week.
Along with the new album, the Barbados born diva also announced a world tour to accompany it. Being that Rihanna isn’t known as the best live singer, we’ll have to see if her #RihannaNavy is faithful enough to drop over $100 to see her in person.
But I guess if Madonna is still charging people almost a $1,000 to see her geriatric-self hump the stage, then Rihanna should have no problems with this new era in her music.
