Suddenly…celebrities have become a lot less relevant in the age of COVID-19. If you follow this blog, you might have noticed that while it once had a heavy dose of daily celebrity news, that type of coverage has slowed to a trickle.
Writer Jade Hayden at Her.ie took a more cynical and harsh approach, writing:
The Covid-19 outbreak has changed the way we consume news.
Instead of living our lives and simply reacting when something bad happens, we are consistently waiting for the bad thing to happen…
In a not dissimilar way, people have changed the way they engage with celebrity news too. Or rather, they haven’t really been engaging with it at all.
Where we once stood impatiently waiting for the Kardashians, the royals…to give their ever relevant thoughts on world events, suddenly the uninformed opinion of a celebrity doesn’t really matter much anymore.
In the same way people criticized Sam Smith for sharing their crying during isolation video, many questioned why Ellen DeGeneres was complaining about being bored on the grounds of her $27 million home.
They roasted every single person who lent their voice to that awful Gal Gadot “Imagine“video. They scrolled on by when Ariana Grande was Zoom-ing her management team.
Right now, nobody cares. There are more pressing things to worry about.
Suddenly, a celebrity’s two cents isn’t all that important (unless they’re donating it to charity, of course).
I wouldn’t go that far but as I wrote last December, our culture and society have already been gravitating away from the most bump obsessive news. From the nude celebrity magazine covers to the overpriced first baby covers, go check out that post HERE now!

Among the moms featured and “bump watched” before on the blog, Beyonce was nominated for Best Original Song for “Spirit” on The Lion King (and got roasted by a few Twitter for being the only one to not give Phoenix a standing ovation for his win); Christina Applegate for Best Actress in Dead to Me and Nicole Kidman for Big Little Lies and Reese Witherspoon for The Morning Show in the Best Actress in a Television Series-Drama category, and Jennifer Lopez for Best Supporting Actress in Motion Picture for Hustlers.
Fashion was classic and on point.

Celebrities are like us: They stress over getting their children to finish their Summer readings lists too.
All Summer, I lamented over on my private Facebook page with friends over the stress of children to read their assigned books before the start of the new year and it looks like 2x 2019 Emmy-nominated comedian Wanda Sykes could relate.
The funny woman stopped by the Ellen DeGeneres daytime talk show recently and shared some insights into her own personal anxiety over the dreaded end of Summer crunch!
“The summer reading was kicking our butts,” Sykes shared with DeGeneres about how she and her wife Alex Sykes tackled kids Olivia and Lucas’ Summer Reading list. “I wish I could just trust my kids [and be like], ‘Hey, here’s the list. You’ve got to read these books.’”
Nope! Not so lucky! So when she discovered her son Lucas was behind, Sykes she did what I did with my 11- year old daughter, (also per her teacher’s recommendation): Read to him!
“I had to read three books this summer with them,” the celebrity mom revealed. “When it got close, like school was about to start [for them], I was like, ‘I’ve still got two hundred pages to cover.’ So I’m reading to them while they’re sleeping, hoping it will sink in. It was a mess.”
Skyes was nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards for Variety Show (Taped) and Writing for a Variety Special for her Netflix standup, Wanda Sykes: Not Normal.
Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo are officially parents of two!
The Victoria’s Secret model gave birth to her second child—another baby girl!—with the Maroon 5 frontman. They’ve decided on yet another adorably unique moniker for baby No. 2, naming the bouncing bundle of joy Geo Grace Levine.
Meanwhile, the famous couple first announced they were expecting their second child in September. At the time, Prinsloo took to Instagram to share a pic of her growing baby bump, writing, “ROUND 2.”
Later, Levine revealed to Ellen DeGeneres that they were expecting another little girl, giving their eldest daughter, Dusty Rose, a baby sister.
Despite having just welcomed another child, however, Levine is already certain this won’t be the couple’s last.
“I want a lot [of kids], I thrive in chaos,” Levine told DeGeneres, adding that his 28-year-old wife feels the same. “She was an only child, so she wants like 100 babies. I don’t know if I can do that. That’s a lot of babies.”
The pair previously welcomed Dusty Rose into the world in Sept. 2016, and last May, Prinsloo echoed her hubby’s comments, describing motherhood as “heaven.”
