Back in the naughties, morning coffees were nothing if not an accessory to compliment your nosey through glossy tabloids or celebrity gossip blogs. The practice was so of the 2000s zeitgeist, its inconceivable nowadays.
Especially when all we have to do to get our fix is scroll through TikTok. Back then, we had Perez Hilton and LaineyGossip where Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton, and Britney were daily fodder. One of the few gossip sites that has survived and navigated a woke revolution was 'CrazyDaysandNights'.
The difference between purveyors of celebrity gossip then and now is simply a letter. Back in the naughties, we called them bloggers and now we call them vloggers. Or, to be more accurate, TikTokers — they share tidbits from the grapevine, often via 'CrazyDaysandNights, and they create PR vision-boards for celebrities. It's fascinating.
Couple speculation is a staple of the celebrity gossip side of TikTok and Emily of 'ItsBecomeAWholeThing' breaks down PR relationships in Hollywood; the ins and outs, why they do it, and how to spot them.
But more than just your average "this couple can't be real" commentary, Emily analyses pop culture. Lately, she's taken a look back at some of the wildest articles of our generation — "The Olsen Twins: Sisters of Perpetual Abstinence" — and how the Kardashians can capitalise on TV more.
Robyn is the marketing mastermind behind the account 'Girlbosstown'; a viral TikToker that offers advice to celebrities and brands on what they can do to elevate themselves. Lately, even Noah Schnapp and BurgerKing have reached out to ask for her expertise.
In one video, she gives advice to Uber Eats on an ad that would feature Martha Stewart and Young Gravy at thanksgiving together (sure, why not?) and in another, she makes predictions for Khloé Kardashian's year ahead.
Shannon brings both a rational and explorative element to the celebrity rumour mill — she dots her i's and crosses her t's when it comes to her deep dives into an alleged story. She goes through the history and gives her own interpretation.
Not to mention, she's just so fresh with her "I don't give a fuck" attitude and she's always quick to remind her followers that even the celebrities they love don't really give a damn about them.
When it comes to the gossip mill, we can't believe everything we hear. But these TikTokers advocate for that and take it further; we can't believe everything we hear or see that's positive either. Like about how Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are always play fighting or the couples that are poised perfectly grabbing a coffee together.
If you're looking for Hollywood commentary that goes beyond the headlines or A-lister Instagram posts, these TikTokers are just the thing for it.
