Tommy Lee and Heather Locklear's Wedding Was Way More Civil Than We Anticipated

  • Popsugar
Netflix's new biopic film The Dirt tells the story of the early days of rock icons Mötley Crüe, from their music to their struggles and low points to, yes, their love lives. One of the most important relationships depicted is between drummer Tommy Lee and his second wife, actress Heather Locklear. Their wedding was one of the surprising but highly covered celebrity weddings of the 1980s.

Lee and Locklear married on May 10, 1986. Locklear was just 24 years old, and Lee was only 23. The match was described, in polite terms, as a mismatch: Lee was in the prime of his edgy rock-and-roll lifestyle, while Locklear was one of Hollywood's favorite TV ingenues. People had a detailed account of the wedding, which was held at the Santa Barbara Biltmore, with about 500 guests.

Lee wore a white leather tux (and was chewing gum up until the ceremony officially started). Locklear's dress was a fitted,

Us: There's a Reason the Tethered Each Wear a Single Brown Glove
With Jordan Peele's Us breaking box office records and blowing minds on the internet, we can safely declare that the Oscar-winning director has created a fascinating new monster mythology through the introduction of the Tethered. But while most of us are still wrapping our heads around those voiceless doppelgängers, some fans believe they've unlocked every cultural reference our dastardly doubles have to offer thanks to the chilling meaning they bring to the film's twist ending and Hands Across America imagery. However, we urge everyone to take a second look.

Peele recently revealed to The L.A. Times that the movie's opening sequence, set on a Santa Cruz boardwalk during summer of 1986, provides a major clue as to why the Tethered wear a single fingerless leather glove on their right hand. The answer surfaces the moment young Adelaide's father (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) wins her the Michael Jackson Thriller T-shirt. Peele explains,

The streaming giant dropped the first trailer for The Perfect Date on Tuesday, which sees the To All the Boys I've Loved Before heartthrob playing a character named Brooks Rattigan, a high school student trying to raise funds for college.

Us: The Names of the Tethered Actually Have Some Major Symbolism
Jordan Peele's new horror thriller Us is creeping out audiences left and right. With a series of unsettling twists - some of which are all the more unsettling for being somewhat plausible - Us has become the buzzy movie sensation of the Spring.

Warning: spoilers ahead!

One of the big twists in the movie is the presence of evil doppelgangers called the Tethered, the results of a government cloning experiment gone awry. Although few of the doubles are named on screen, the end credits reveal that all of them have names - some of which are laden with meaning.

Red (Lupita Nyong'o) is a nickname that has some historical significance, especially in the context of a rebel character. Malcolm X, in his early years of criminal activity in Harlem, went by the nickname "Detroit Red." In American culture, "red" is a historically loaded term in other ways, as it

Valkyrie's Survival Has Been Confirmed by a New Set of Avengers: Endgame Character Posters
Warning: Yes, even this post spoils most of Avengers: Infinity War.

Listen, I get it. There was no way Marvel would be able to fit every single superhero into Avengers: Infinity War. And truth be told, they did a pretty remarkable job with the amount of characters they did manage to include. But you know how it goes. With so many characters and only so much airtime, a few names were bound to fall by the wayside.

There's no sign of Hawkeye in Infinity War. He's mentioned in the same breath as Ant-Man, who is also noticeably absent. While the former seems to be steering clear of the drama to protect himself and his family, Ant-Man has been placed under house arrest due to the events that go down in Captain America: Civil War (he also has a young daughter to think of). So that's all fine and dandy, but there's another character who's missing.

Hannah Brown Is Already Filming The Bachelorette! Here's How Quickly the Process Works

The first Monday after The Bachelor or The Bachelorette's finale is always the hardest . . . or is that just us? On one hand, our evenings have lost meaning, but it's exciting to know that a new single will begin the journey of finding the person they'll love forever (even if they don't get married). You may be wondering when the new season with Hannah Brown will start (spoiler: we have your answer here), but what about the filming process? Spoiler, again: it's already in full swing!

Mike Fleiss, the creator of the Bachelor franchise, confirmed that Hannah began her journey by posting a photo on March 18 with Chris Harrison by her side. Due to the gown and Bachelor Mansion backdrop, we can only assume it was taken the first night. Mike captioned the photo with "Wow! #TheBachelorette." Who could blame him? That silver sparkling gown deserves all the attention.

The Dirt: What Really Happened When Vince Neil Crashed His Car

  • Popsugar
Netflix's "behind the music" movie The Dirt follows rock band Mötley Crüe in their early days, when they were fully engrossed in both their music and in a hard-partying, drug-fueled, often unsettling lifestyle. Their 2001 autobiography, The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band, became a bestseller and inspired the Netflix film. In the book, lead singer Vince Neil opened up about one of the most tragic events in the band's history: the night he crashed his car while driving drunk, killing a colleague and permanently injuring two strangers.

On December 8, 1984, Neil was driving to a liquor store in Hollywood, along with Razzle, the drummer of the band Hanoi Rocks. The two bands had both been at a party thrown in honor of Hanoi Rocks's first American tour (the band was from Finland), and everyone at the party had already been drinking a lot. Neil and Razzle decided

All Charges Against Jussie Smollett Have Been Dropped Following His Alleged Attack
All charges have been dropped against Jussie Smollett following his arrest in February. The Empire actor appeared in Chicago court on Tuesday morning for an "emergency appearance" before his team released a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

"Today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him," his lawyers told the publication. "Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29th. He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public causing an inappropriate rush to judgment."

"Jussie and many others were hurt by these unfair and unwarranted actions. This entire situation is a reminder that there should never be an attempt to prove a case in the court of public opinion. That is wrong.
