"SNL" Parodies Hallmark Christmas Movies After Controversy

Scarlett Johansson hosted a holiday-themed episode  Saturday Night Live last night that included a follow-up to a 2017 bit parodying Hallmark Channel’s Christmas movies. 

Johansson is a guest on a Christmas-themed dating show titled A Winter Boyfriend for Holiday Christmas where she must choose to marry a vaguely British prince, a Christmas ghost, or Santa Clause. A black character comes in at one-point as well with no depth or back story, criticizing the lack diversity in Hallmark movies. 

The updated bit came at just the right time, considering that Hallmark came under fire yesterday for removing a Zola wedding-planning commercial that featured two brides kissing.

The decision was explained in a statement to The New York Times, which reads, “The decision not to air overt public displays affection in our sponsored advertisement, regardless the participants, is in line with our current policy, which includes not featuring political advertisements, fensive language, R-rated movie content and many other categories.”

Zola decided to pull all it’s remaining commercials in response. The company’s chief marketing ficer Mike Chi said, “Hallmark approved a commercial where a heteroual couple kissed. All kisses, couples and marriages are equal celebrations love and we will no longer be advertising on Hallmark.”

The SNL sketch ends with Aidy Bryant saying, “Remember to stay straight out there.”

Lakers Tried Resigning D’Angelo Russell To $100M Deal: Report

D’Angelo Russell found himself in Golden State this season thanks to a four-year, $117 million deal fer as part the sign-and-trade that sent Kevin Durant to Brooklyn. Of course, the Warriors weren’t the only team vying for the All Star point guard’s services and new details have now surfaced regarding which other teams were in the running.

According to a report by The Athletic’s Anthony Slater, there were two other serious contenders for Russell, including the team that drafted him second overall in 2015, the Los Angeles Lakers. In fact, Slater’s report suggests the Lakers had a near $100 million deal on the table while they were pursuing Kawhi Leonard.

Slater reports:

Russell spent June 30, the day free agency opened, in Los Angeles, where his agency is located. The market moved at warp speed. Before the bidding had ficially opened, Irving and Durant had already given their pledge to Brooklyn. That took a return to the Nets f the table for Russell.

Russell only wanted serious bidders and, sources say, he had three: The Lakers — wouldn’t that have been quite the reunion? — nearing a potential $100 million fer but in limbo until Kawhi Leonard made his choice, the Wolves, up over $100 million but still needing to create cap room to get to his max, and the Warriors, fering the full max in a complicated sign-and-trade involving Durant.

Russell, 23, recently spoke about his decision to sign with the Warriors and explained that the opportunity to go somewhere warm “played a major part” in his plan. Says Russell, according to the Star Tribune’s Christopher Hine:

“I thought the opportunity here Minnesota] was amazing … It was definitely something I was considering very strongly. But then when this opportunity came, the weather is way better, so that helped me.”

“I did my first winter in New York and that was tough,” Russell added. “So to get the opportunity to go somewhere where it’s warm again, I think that played a major part in my plan.”

In 13 games this season, Russell is averaging 22 points, 6.2 assists and 3.7 assists per game, although things haven’t gone as planned for the injury-riddled Warriors, who currently hold the worst record in the West.

When Miley first started dating Cody Simpson, she pulled in some flack for her fast dating moves but she deaded the heat right away calling out a double standard. “Men (especially successful ones) are RARELY slut shamed. They move on from one beautiful young woman to the next MOST times without consequence,” she wrote.

“They are usually referred to as “legends”, “heart throbs”, “G”, “Ladies Man”, etc…. where women are called sluts/whores! I am trying to just THRIVE/survive in a “mans” world…If we can’t beat em, join em! If our president can “grab em by the pussy….” can’t I just have a kiss and an açai bowl?!?!”

The Game was recently out when cameramen saw him and shined a bright light in his face as they filmed him. “I don’t want none this,” the rapper said as he told the photographers to put their cameras away. It was obvious by the look on his face that he was serious, but the man with the light and the camera stayed on him. The Game approached one cameraman and repeatedly asks, “Are you not listening to me, bro?” The photographer says, “I’m just standing here… Okay, chill out.”

“No, I’m not chillin’ out,” Game responds, obviously irritated with the exchange. “Get your f*ckin’ camera out my face. I just told you I’m not in the mood, so put your camera down. Y’all don’t get it. I’m always chill, bro. I had a death in my family, I don’t f*ckin’ feel like it today. Don’t disrespect me.” The cameraman said he wasn’t being disrespectful, but Game let him know he was because he didn’t just put the camera down when he asked the first time. The rapper revealed that he’s mourning the death his aunt and, understandably, just wanted to be left alone. He told the man if they continued to go about things the way they were, they would see a different Game they don’t want to be unleashed. Check out the clip below.

Adidas Yeezy Boost 380 Revealed In "Tan" Colorway: First Look

One the wildest creations to come from the Yeezy camp is the Adidas Yeezy Boost 380 which debuted with the “Alien” colorway. At first, it was believed this model was actually the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V3 but eventually, that rumor got put to bed really quick. With the “Alien” 380 already out in the hands the public, more colorways the sneaker are being teased. As is the case with most Yeezy colorways these days, the revealed models have come in earthy tones and this latest colorway is no different.

For now, it’s unknown when these are going to drop although you can expect them sometime in 2020. These seem like they would have been dope for the Fall or Winter but at this point, a Spring release seems more likely.

DaBaby Delivers a FaceTime Concert After His Plane Breaks Down

Grammy-nominated hip-hop artist DaBaby gave a whole new meaning to the expression “the show must go on” when he performed for his fans over FaceTime after he had to cancel a show due to plane difficulties.

On December 5, DaBaby was to fly to his hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina to perform at the Power98 Winter Block Party in the Bojangles Coliseum. However, his chartered jet in New York, where he was recording a promotional spot for a scheduled Saturday Night Live appearance, had problems and could not take off.

As soon as DaBaby realized that he would not make the show, he live-streamed an apology to his fans over Instagram, and this is when everyone got creative.

The people working the block party got together with DaBaby’s people and they arranged for him to perform from outside the jet over Apple’s FaceTime app.

His performance was subsequently broadcast over the Coliseum’s jumbotrons, and all indications are that it was a rousing success. A number of videos taken by those attending the concert show the crowd happily dancing as the artist performed all his big hits.

In spite of this, DaBaby again apologized to his fans the following day over Instagram while indicating that the experience was humbling for him. He also not only thanked them for all their loyalty but also promised to provide a free show for all ticket holders sometime in the immediate future.

DaBaby, whose real name is Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, released his debut studio album earlier this year, which was entitled Baby on Baby. Both the album and a single from it called “Suge” reached No. 7 on the Billboard charts. He followed this a few months later with his second studio album, which was called Kirk. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

DaBaby made news a few weeks ago when he a global publishing administration deal with UMPG.
