Sammy Hagar clarifies that he’s willing to die from COVID-19 to restart touring
June 26th, 2020 under Constance Wu, Coronavirus. [ Comments: none ]


The other day, Rolling Stone posted an article where they asked 13 legendary musicians, and Sammy Hagar are they willing to go back on the road before there is a vaccine for COVID-19. Hagar was the only one who said he would.

In fact, he said, “This is hard to say without stirring somebody up, but truthfully, I’d rather personally get sick and even die, if that’s what it takes. We have to save the world and this country from this economic thing that’s going to kill more people in the long run.” Well, as you can expect, that did not go over well with people.

Today, he clarifed what he meant by that on social media:
Hey, Sammy here. Earlier in the week @rollingstone ran a compilation piece from their Quarantine Q&A series. I did that interview a month and a half ago, things change very fast right now, so I wanted to clarify and put a few things into context now.

I did that interview May 8th when we were already several weeks into the stay-at-home, which my family and I took very seriously, and things were starting to look up, the curve was beginning to flatten. So when I was asked if I’d be comfortable enough to get back onstage before a vaccine was out, I was cautiously optimistic. I said, “Yeah, not too soon. I want to make sure it’s not escalating. When it’s declining and seems to be going away.” Big picture, it’s about getting back to work in a safe and responsible way and getting this economy rolling again. I will do my part. I stand by that. I employ 200 people directly and when we tour even more. Like everything today, it’s a watch and see over the next few months but we remain cautiously optimistic that with the right improvements and safety measures in place, we might be able to play shows this year. That said, as things change, for the better or worse, we will appropriately adjust our plans.

Do you believe that is what he meant or he is just trying to cover his a$$?

BTW I was just wondering. If Hagar didn’t join Van Halen, would he be considered a one hit wonder?

Constance Wu worked as a stripper to prep for Hustlers
February 17th, 2020 under Constance Wu, Kelly Clarkson. [ Comments: none ]


Constance Wu wanted to know how it felt to be a stripper before she played one in Hustlers, so she put on some tattoos and got a job as one. That means she worked the pole that hangs from the ceiling and the one that hangs between a man’s legs. The actress told Kelly Clarkson that she did lapdances too. How much did she make? She made $600.

At least now, if she has a problem getting a job, because of how she handled Fresh Off the Boat’s renewal, she knows that there is another career available to her.

Constance Wu reveals why she was so mad Fresh Off the Boat was renewed
December 30th, 2019 under Constance Wu. [ Comments: none ]


Constance Wu became a household name when her show Fresh Off the Boat was picked up for a fifth season. Not because she was crying happy tears that it was renewed, instead she was crying sad ones.

For 6 months, we wanted to understand why she was so upset about it, and now she revealed the real reason she did not want her sitcom to come back. She told Showbiz 411, “I know everyone hates me now, but I love Fresh off the Boat. I didn’t mean anything against the people there. But I will tell you what happened. I was going to do a play in London. I had a boyfriend there, and was looking forward to being with him. But when the show was renewed, that killed the opportunity. And the relationship.”

If he really loved her, he would have made it work. Guess even her performance in Hustlers was not enough to keep him warm until her schedule freed up for him. Then again, who saw that movie for Wu?

So now she has no play, no boyfriend and no sitcom. Hopefully, she learned the lesson to be grateful for what you have because it can all be taken away. And it was.

Constance Wu got a job outside of Fresh Off the Boat
June 24th, 2019 under Constance Wu. [ Comments: none ]


When Constance Wu found out that Fresh Off the Boat was picked up for a fifth season, she was literally crying. Not tears of joy, but she was mad because she had to turn down a job to continue on one that most actors, especially Asian ones, would dream of having.

You would think that would make her persona non grata in Hollywood, but I guess not. Variety is reporting she was cast in the film Goodbye Vitamin. The movie is about, “Ruth Young, who discovers that her father, a renowned history professor, has lost his job after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. She decides to return home and work with her father’s former student to stage a fake class so he can continue to teach.”

I hope she finishes in time to film the ABC sitcom. I also hope the writers give her easy storylines for the sitcom that don’t challenge her. Although, I do not think we will be able to tell the difference because she plays the role the same way no matter what they give her. Translation. she is so one note.

Ungrateful Constance Wu still has her TV job
May 14th, 2019 under ABC, Constance Wu. [ Comments: none ]


On Friday, when ABC announced that they were renewing Fresh Off the Boat, Constance Wu said it was not a good thing. Her tweets made her the most hated person. Even more so than Jussie Smollett. She tried to say by the show being picked up for another season, it meant that she could not do a role that was more challenging for her.

Ever since then, ABC has been radio silent, but today they had no choice but to respond to reporters on the Upfronts call. Karey Burke, president of ABC Entertainment, said, “There’s been no thought to recasting Constance.” Then she explained why “We love what she does on the show and we love the show. I did actually know that Constance had another opportunity that had Fresh Off the Boat not gone forward, she would’ve pursued. But we never really considered not bringing back Fresh Off the Boat. The show is just too strong for us and we love it.”

Maybe since Wu has nothing to do during her hiatus, she will take some acting lessons. This way she won’t play Jessica so one-dimensional. She is the weakest actor on the sitcom. She could learn a thing or two from her TV husband Randall Park who is one of the funniest guys on television.

BTW I am glad they are not recasting her. Maybe it will teach her lesson in humility. Tiffany Haddish, who we can agree is a much much much bigger star, signed on to do a remake of Kids Say the Darndest Things for ABC. All while still making movies people see. She knows what it means to be grateful for work.
