Foodgoddammit, Jonathan Cheban’s Legal Name May Soon Be ‘Foodgod’

Best friend of Kim Kardashian and sworn enemy of restaurateurs everywhere Jonathan Cheban has revealed plans to change his legal name to Foodgod, per a report by Page Six.


Said Cheban:

“Everyone calls me foodgod; scream it in the streets and run up to me in restaurants, and I want people calling me foodgod when they write about me — not Jonathan or ‘BFF.’”


While he’s gone by the nickname informally for some time (he claims it was given to him by Kanye West), Cheban apparently felt “Jonathan” didn’t properly convey his love for holding, photographing, chewing, eating, digesting, and talking about food. “Foodgod,” on the other hand, immediately brings to mind someone who’s about to shovel a large bite of something chunky and tan into his mouth—decorum be damned—post a poorly lit and overly yellow photo of the aftermath on his social media channels, and scream, “I AM THE FOODGOD,” as a tablespoon of unswallowed bolus dribbles down his chin.

TriStar Pictures will not be screening the former Oscar hopeful All the Money In the World (directed by Ridley Scott and starring Kevin Spacey) at this month’s AFI Fest, and has released the following statement:

All the Money in the World is a superb film and more than worthy of its place of honor in the AFI Fest. But given the current allegations surrounding one of its actors and out of respect for those impacted, it would be inappropriate to celebrate at a gala at this difficult time. Accordingly, the film will be withdrawn. However, a film is not the work of one person. There are over 800 other actors, writers, artists, craftspeople and crew who worked tirelessly and ethically on this film, some for years, including one of cinema’s master directors. It would be a gross injustice to punish all of them for the wrongdoings of one supporting actor in the film.”

The film is still scheduled to be released at the end of December.


This probably isn’t the Reputation tracklist but I hope it is.
