Brad Pitt, Why Are You Wearing A Name Tag Like You Need One?

Okay, so you're... Brad Pitt?

He’s been starring in critically and commercially acclaimed films for decades, he was a teenage crush for many of us and he’s been gracing the front-covers of magazines since his infamous breakup with Jennifer Anniston in 2005. You know who he is, we don’t even need to say his name, which makes us wonder, why on earth is Brad Pitt wearing a name tag?

We can’t seem to get Brad Pitt off our minds, check out our debrief of that infamous photo at the SAG Awards on this episode of It’s Been A Big Day For… 

Well, the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star was attending the annual Oscars luncheon on Monday when he decided to act like an average joe.

Was he being funny? Was he being cheeky? Was he just trying to be normal? Who knows. But, when the star chucked a name tag on the breast pocket of his grey suit, it sure did catch out attention.

“Just make sure it’s on so we know who you are” is what I imagine was said (Credit: Getty)

Also at the Oscars luncheon was fellow nominee Cynthia Erivo and Academy CEO Dawn Hudson. Notably, both did not wear name-badges but perhaps should have, given others that were present.

While the star is up for Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars next week, we reckon he deserves an acting award in his role of a normal person at this prestigious event. 

Anything’s possible!

It should be noted that fellow film collaborators, Quentin Tarantino and Leonardo DiCaprio, were also in attendance and they both did not sport a name tag. Who do they think they are? Brad Pitt or something? 

Leo wishes he was Brad Pitt!

We can only hope that he decides to wear this tag at the actual Oscars event on the 7th of Feb. Now, that would be iconic.

Tyler, The Creator Holds 9 Year Grudges And Yes, I’m That Petty Too

Tyler, The Destroyer.

Last night Tyler, the Creator took home the Grammy for Best Rap Album, which high-key is a massive deal. This marks the first Grammy for the 28-year-old rapper, who has been making music for over a decade now. If you need a little Grammys refresher, we got you:

But the reason why we’re celebrating with him is that he finally got justice on an annoying, Twitter hater.

Tyler, the Creator took to the social media platform to resurface an old Tweet from some random. The tweet in question comes from someone called Mark Anthony (no, not Jennifer Lopez’ ex), and he says “dont b too excited. u wont get one…..”, of course talking about music’s most prestigious award. 

Well, looks like Tyler got the last laugh, replying to this Tweet a full 9 years later, saying: “I FAVORITED THIS 9 YEARS AGO JUST FOR THE MOMENT TO TELL YOU I GOT ONE. YES IM PETTY AS F**K, GOOD DAY MARK”. Check out the interaction here: 

Funnily enough, Mark Anthony still seems to be hating on Tyler to this day. We’re guessing he really isn’t a fan.

Interestingly enough, there is a chance that Tyler sees where Mark is coming from, considering a comment he made on his album being classified as a “rap” album, despite being experimental.

When talking to the press, backstage of the Grammy’s he said: “On one side I’m very grateful that what I made could be acknowledged in a world like this, but also it sucks that whenever ‘we’ – and I mean guys that look like me – do anything that’s genre-bending or that’s anything, they always put it in a rap or ‘urban’ category which is – and I don’t like that “urban” word, it’s just a politically correct way to say the ‘N-word’ to me”:

Regardless, we’re happy that Tyler has won a Grammy, we’re happy that he shut this troll down and we’re happy that he’s happy.

If you want to hear about other artists snubbed by this year’s Grammys, check out this episode of It’s Been A Big Day For…

Tyler, the Creator’s been receiving a whole bunch of love on Twitter following his win, including one from Jaden Smith, saying: “My Boyfriend Just Won A Grammy.” We love these two lovebirds.

Just A Bunch Of Photos Of Celebs Struggling To Hold All Their Grammys

Carry a friend.

Billie Eilish reigned supreme this year’s Grammy Awards, walking away with five out of six awards she was nominated for, including the big four (Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Album of the Year and Best New Artist). But, this isn’t necessarily a new thing.  If you need a little Grammys refresher, check this out:

It’s no secret that the Grammys like to indulge one artist, and this year was no exception. Why? Well, for no other reason than to snap the celebrities making that “oh, I have too many Grammys to fit in my tiny hands” face, also known as “shocked Pikachu”.

So without further ado, allow us to present the best photos of celebrities struggling to hold their Grammys.

So graceful, so peaceful. While many thought that Album of the Year in 2019 deserved to go to Drake, Post Malone or Cardi B, the country-pop superstar showed she deserved it more than anyone by also winning Best Country Album, Song and Solo Performance. A yee-haw icon. 

Taylor Swift

She really did just shake it off. (Credit: Getty)

Ah, Taylor. At the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, Taylor Swift scored big, winning Album of the Year and Best Country Album for Fearless, as well as Best Country Female Vocal Performance and Best Country Song for “White Horse”. And while that was certainly memorable, the unforgettable Grammys moment happened off the stage when the pop star dropped one of her many Grammys. Yes, it broke.  

Beyoncé

Only Beyoncé could match her eye-shadow to the background. (Credit: Getty)

Beyoncé may have just won her 24th Grammy for the groundbreaking Netflix-special, HOMECOMING, but let us cast your mind back to a different time. The year was 2001, Beyoncé had just been awarded for her iconic song “Crazy In Love”, looking poised as ever holding her five Grammys. 

Bruno Mars

Singer and professional award balancer it seems. Winning six awards for his album 24K Magic and the standout single “That’s What I Like” in 2018, Bruno Mars certainly had a lot of 24K to add to his home collection. 

Adele

She could’ve had it all. (Credit: Getty)

In 2017, the vocalist swept the floor with the rest of the nominees taking home Album, Song and Record of the Year for 25 and “Hello”. But, it wasn’t exactly the first time. Five years earlier, Adele won the exact same awards for 21 and “Rolling In The Deep”, among others. Bow down to queen Adele!

We spoke about Adele’s Grammy-award winning song “Skyfall” when we discussed Billie Eilish’s Bond takeover on this episode of It’s Been A Big Dar For…

Sam Smith

Look what you made him do. (Credit: Getty)

When Sam Smith broke onto the music scene, they did so with a bang, winning three out of the four big awards. In The Lonely Hour and “Stay With Me” were all we could listen to that year, perhaps explaining this reaction.
