What To Expect From Aziz Ansari, Now That He's Been Welcomed Back To The Netflix Stage

It's been over a year since he was accused of sexual misconduct.

Aziz Ansari has kept an incredibly low profile since he was accused of sexual misconduct in 2018., but it appears Netflix is ready to welcome him back to the entertainment world (again).

In a bit of a surprise reveal, the streaming giant dropped a trailer for Ansari’s upcoming new stand-up comedy special, titled Aziz Ansari: Right Now.

Sorry folks, no word on Master of None season three.

This marks Ansari’s first appearance on TV screens – and screens of any kind – since his sexual misconduct accusation and it brings up a question of whether it’s time to welcome him back into the fold.

Save for a low key stand-up gig at the start of 2019 when he addressed it his misconduct onstage in a refreshingly, and surprisingly, thoughtful manner, he’s stayed silent on the matter so we don’t have a clear idea as to whether he’s accepted the responsibility of his actions and has grown as a person or whether he’s gone the way of Louis CK by playing the victim blaming card and shrugging everything off completely.

But based on that aforementioned stand up gig, his 2019 Road To Nowhere comedy tour, and a recent Melbourne show in which he once again tackled the accusation in a “practiced but sincere” way, it seems almost certain that we’ll get some part of Aziz’s stand up special dedicated to his #MeToo moment, which is the part most people are interested in hearing.

But don’t expect his entire special to be dedicated entirely to #MeToo though since an hour on the subject is perhaps a bit much for a stand-up comedy set, even for a comedian like Aziz. If his recent shows are any indication, it seems like his latest set will be heavy on themes like compassion and growth, which seems pretty fitting for someone trying to get his career back on track.

Whether or not Aziz is ready to be welcomed back remains up in the air, but we have a good idea on what he’s going to talk about on his big return. Will it be sincere or merely a means to an end?

Well we’ll find out soon enough whether Right Now is missing a question mark.

Robert Pattinson Says He Smells Like A Crayon And I Need To Know Which Colour

Another wild yarn from R-Patz.

Robert Pattinson has gained quite a reputation for spinning wild yarns during interviews, but his most recent comments on his body odour have me truly shaken.

In a recent interview with Allure the star of the upcoming The Batman film said, “Lots of people tell me I smell like a crayon.”

The interviewer – understandably bewildered by this statement – then asked, “Like you’re made of wax?”

To which R-Patz responded, “Yes! Like I’m embalmed.”

I have so many questions. What colour crayon does Pattinson smell like? What brand? Is he using lots of crayons? And most importantly, who are these multiple people who are telling him he smells like crayon!? Is that an insult, or a compliment?

It’s not the first time Robert Pattinson’s scent has come up in conversation. Back in 2009, E! News reported that an unidentified source who worked “very closely” with the actor on New Moon said “he stinks.”

“I mean, it’s awful,” the source said. “He never showers, and it drives people on the set crazy.”

“He completely reeks,” an unidentified crew member added. Yikes.

It’s been over a decade since then, so we can only hope Robert Pattinson has swapped his lack of showering for an obsession with crayons. 

Speaking of celebrity scents, celebrity tattoo artist Lauren Winzer dishes on what Post Malone smells like on It’s Been A Big Day For…below:

During his interview with Allure, Pattinson was also asked about being recently named the “most handsome man” in the world according to science.

“It’s weird,” he said. “I never was really up for the good-looking-guy roles, because I’ve always been quite awkward when meeting people.”

“My Harry Potter role was a good-looking guy, and it was a shock that it was quite easy to get. And then in Twilight, [Edward is] beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. When I turned up for the auditions, I had done a job where I’d dyed my hair black, because I had an inch and a half of roots, and I had waxed my body. And then I had a few months where I’d been drinking beer all day, so I had this hairless, chubby body. I looked like a baby with a wig on.”

Hairless, chubby, waxed or smelling like a crayon – we’ll take Robert Pattinson any which way.
