Rihanna's Clara Lionel Foundation donated $5 million to Feeding America, Direct Relief, Partner in Health, and a few other organizations.

That Twitter/Square guy donated 28% of his net worth! I bet RiRi found that $5 million in her damn purse. That's like me donating $20 or something, but every penny counts, though!

I'm actually kind of curious what kind of education school-age celebrities receive from their private tutors. I suspect they actually learn shit-all and only have education on paper to skirt anti-truancy laws while they work on whatever media careers that are bringing their parents money. Many of them probably have less than a high-school education.

Ariana Grande can't read, and not because of, like, dyslexia or anything

And I know Daniel Radcliffe was accidentally taught heliocentrism

Josh Brolin CANCELED over visit to father



Brolin visited stepmother Barbra Streisand and his father, and now regrets his mistake and has posted a humbled apology

What has canceled him for me, however, is the fact that he lives next door to his dad

Vin Diesel is so into Dungeons and Dragons that he somehow convinced Dame Judy Dench to try it

Henry Cavill is spending quarantine painting little miniatures based on Warhammer, which is apparently similar to Dungeons and Dragons?

Joe Manganiello is also sacrificing his soul to Satan by obsessing over D&D

I feel like any time there's a comic book movie or tv show announced, the actors have to be like "Oh yeah, I totally read comics growing up, I definitely know anything about them," but then there are these meganerds who actually lived it and cannot get out of it

Plenty of actors in these films freely admit to not being into the source material growing up and only doing the research as an adult for their roles. Others even say they couldn't get into the comics enough to finish reading their research materials (and then proceed to treat the material with contempt and go on about how they are doing a more "serious" take on it).

I don't mind when they don't have the nerd cred so long as they do a good job. And usually when the final product sucks, it's because of the screenwriters, director, and studio, rather than any of the actors.

Are you saying it's not obvious from his range that Thor is played by an Aussie soap star?



At least Heath Ledger had the decency to die before the undeserved praise rolled in.

We could get into an ultimately fruitless discussion about whether this person can still credibly be called a celebrity in 2020, but

"that's it and that's all"

“When someone who is newsworthy or notable that has an enormous network on social media tweets about something that could be as path-breaking as a medicine that could treat coronavirus, everyone is going to pay attention no matter if that person has expertise or not,” said Joan Donovan, director of the technology and social change research project at Harvard’s Shorenstein Center. “Elon Musk elevating and giving voice to this Google doc does act as a validating mechanism. Elon Musk is a tech entrepreneur best known as a car salesman, but nevertheless people look to him for what’s new, what’s next.”

Musk’s tweet received more than 13,000 retweets. (He did not respond to questions from the Guardian about his promotion of the document.) Search interest in chloroquine soared. Mainstream media outlets covered his apparent endorsement of the drug. An 85-year-old medication was well on its way to becoming a Covid-19 meme.

Musk has been a dumbass through this whole thing.

In the early days, his response to the virus was something like "The panic is worse than the virus," and then as time went on he promised to build and deliver 1,000 ventilators to hospitals nationwide. Then it became buying the ventilators, then he said he'd delivered them and no hospital had a record of receiving them. Then it turned out what he'd actually bought weren't ventilators but CPAP machines that would have to be heavily altered to use for COVID-19 patients. They don't produce enough air pressure to be helpful, so Musk's response was to disagree with the entire medical profession and say he didn't think the amount of pressure ventilators exert is medically necessary.

Throughout this changing story, his fans have been on his side, don't mind that the goalposts keep shifting, and consider him a hero.

Elon Musk put a car in space, has a goth gf, and I still hate him.

That's how unlikable he is.

wat about this?

https://www.theguardian.com/technolo...e-pedo-twitter

Elon Musk came under fire on Sunday after launching an extraordinary attack on a British diver who helped rescue the boys trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand, baselessly calling him a “pedo” on Twitter and then doubling down.

dude sued him and lost
