Deadpool 2 Topped Infinity War at the Box Office.
Though it didn’t quite bring in enough to top its own debut (it brought in $132.4 million in 2016, making it the biggest opening for a Rated-R film). Still, the Marvel superhero racked up $125 million in North America over the weekend and another $176 million overseas. $301 million globally? We’d say that’s not too shabby.
The Co-Writer of Earth Wind & Fire’s “September” Didn’t Like Taylor Swift’s Cover Either.
Here’s what Allee Willis, who co-wrote the classic hit alongside the late Maurice White and Al McKay had to say during a Friday evening song-and-stories performance in Detroit. You might want to put down your coffee real quick:
“On the same day things happened in Syria, the FBI broke into Michael Cohen’s office… the worst thing that happened as far as the Internet was concerned on this 449th day of all of our brains feeling like they’ve been hurled back and forth like squash balls, the top-trending topic on Twitter was the Taylor Swift cut of ‘September.’ I didn’t really think she did a horrible job. Yes, I felt it was as lethargic as a drunk turtle dozing under a sunflower after ingesting a bottle of Valium, and I thought it had all the build of a one-story motel, but, I mean, the girl didn’t kill anybody. She didn’t run over your foot. She just cut a very calm and somewhat boring take of one of the peppiest, happiest, most popular songs in history.”
