Here’s the latest celebrity gossip and entertainment news from the world of stage, screen and television.
FYRE FESTIVAL FALLOUT GROWS
The fallout from farce music festival Fyre continues to grow as Gregory Messer, Fyre Media’s bankruptcy trustee publicly sues a fresh group of celebrities, models, PR agencies and even Australian travel agency Flight Centre for damages.
High profilers Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski, Blink-182, Lil Yachty, Pusha T, Migos and hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd were among others who were served lawsuits for their involvement in the sham.
In Jenner and Ratajkowkis’ case, they are in trouble for posting just one Instagram post each where they failed to mention they were being paid up to $300,000 for the sponsorship.
These are not the first lawsuits connected with Fyre festival: there are currently several class action lawsuits concerning festival goers moving through the courts, and in 2018 two attendees won a $5 million case against festival organiser Billy McFarland.
However, it’s doubtful as to whether how much attendees or representatives who sue McFarland will ever see.
The twenty-seven year old is currently serving a six year jail sentence and is rumoured to be pretty skint, not surprising considering how many people he allegedly conned and left high and dry without a concert to attend.
RUPAULS DRAG RACE DOWN UNDER…SANS RUPAUL?
Sharpen those scissors, prime the glitter and perfect that stance, RuPaul’s Drag Race is coming down under to let you know if you’ve got it…or not.
After much anticipation the show is here, albeit with a few missing details.
While the deal has been signed, sealed and delivered with ITV there is still no news as to what channel or streaming service the show will air on. Furthermore, there has been no confirmation as to whether Mama Ru herself will be hosting. Instead, there have only been rumours about Aussie favourite Courtney Act.
This hasn’t deterred ecstatic fans though, and the Internet is ablaze with questions and theories. The show has become a world wide smash hit, garnering itself six Emmy’s, eight nominations and four spin offs.
Outside of a promising drag career contestants are also superbly fierce as they set their eyes on the lucrative $100, 000 prize, making the whole spectacle a wild ride.
For those wanting something a little more concrete, RuPauls Drag Race Werq the World Tour 2020 has been announced and tickets are available for purchase.
Led by Michelle Visage, and a lot of supporting drag stars, the show is set to be spectacular, although unfortunately it’s only showing in one place, and you’ll have to grab a ticket to Perth to secure your seat.
