Fans started asking her if she donated money to anywhere, and Cardi responded in kind, while also clarifying that she has been supporting her entire extended family over the course of the pandemic. Another delightful part of this thing, which is not even that big a deal at the moment, is this exchange, below:

Here’s what is important to note! Cardi considers her fans her friends—that’s crucial information that informs her entire “social media strategy” and anything else she does. I know that everything is real bad right now, and that tensions are high, but we’re all just limping to the finish line, here. Also... I’m not saying she shouldn’t buy the bag, because it’s her life and not mine, and I do not place unrealistic expectations on celebrities to behave in a manner that I feel is acceptable, because that’s not how life works. But if she’s gonna buy the bag, which I assume she is, I’d like to see it. Thank you. [Daily Mail]

Oh, no. Oh, dear. All right? Matthew McConaughey is out here running his mouth about the “Hollywood elite” and how they are dismissive towards the working class. This is a bit of a head-scratcher, but I’ll do my best. McConaughey appeared on Russell Brand’s podcast and said some stuff like this, when asked about the entertainment industry’s general attitude towards the working class:

McConaughey replied, “There are a lot [of people] on that illiberal left that absolutely condescend, patronize, and are arrogant towards the other 50 percent.”

The “True Detective” star pointed out how some of his Hollywood peers struggled to accept the results in the 2016 election — but now the roles have been reversed.

“I’m sure you saw it in our industry when Trump was voted in four years ago, they were in denial that was real. Some of them were in absolute denial,” McConaughey said.

He suggested that it would now be hypocritical for them to expect Trump voters to give up on challenging President-elect Joe Biden’s win.


He also urged that we all move towards being “aggressively centric,” which I’m sure will happen anyway without his urging, so no need to worry, there! [Page Six]
