So, this weekend was an absolute fucking mess, and I’m not just referring to how drunk I got. Celebrity culture was fucked up and tragic and pathetic and just messy all weekend long.
Pete Davidson might kill himself, Kanye West might kill Drake (or vice versa), and Offset made a desperate please to get Cardi B back. It’s all been a mess.
First, let’s start with Kanye, because that amazingly set off a chain reaction of events that eventually leads to Pete.
Kanye and Drake have been feuding ever since Kanye produced Pusha T’s album, which exposed Drake’s lovechild. Drake was super pissed because he was sure Kanye told Pusha about his son, which Drake had told Kanye about in confidence, so I totally understand the anger.
Kanye went off on Drake on Twitter, because he’s mega pissed that Drake won’t talk to him, but stays close to his family (ex: Kris Jenner), and that Drake did a sneak diss on Travis Scott’s song “Sicko Mode”, and Kanye was all “fuck sicko mode, family first” etc etc, so then Kanye was kind of feuding with his brother-in-law over this shit (he said it’s all love now, though), then Kim Kardashian weighed in to tell Drake to never threaten her family, then Drake’s baby mother chimed in to defend him, and I mean it’s really been a whole fucking thing.
As if this couldn’t get more dramatic, Ariana Grande chimed in on Twitter to suggest that people take two seconds away from “grown men” arguing on Twitter, and go listen to hers and Miley Cyrus’ new songs.
Kanye responded, essentially saying not to use his mental suffering to promote her shit, but he has mad love for her. Ariana was all like “Don’t need to use anyone for publicity, sorry if I triggered you. All love.”
THEN Pete Davidson made a post on Instagram standing up for Kanye and that mental health is nothing to joke about and he’s “disgusted”, then he made another post about how much he wants to off himself, then Ariana is tweeting at him that she’s down by his door because she doesn’t have his number anymore to text him, so like maybe they hung out?
So…yeah…that’s a lot to take in.
In slightly wild news, in a desperate attempt to get Cardi B back, Offset crashed one of her performances this weekend by having flowers on stage spell out “Take me back, Cardi”. Typically something like that would deserve it’s own post, but it’s really the least dramatic thing that happened in pop culture this weekend.
