Keith Richards wants his kids to snort his ashes when he’s dead.
Just wait. In another month or two, we’ll have reached Peak Dragonfly and we’ll be sick of him. These days, though, we’re still in a Hiddlesdrought where anything Tom Hiddleston does or says becomes major news (for Dragonflies). Tom is about to begin promotional work in Toronto, which is where I Saw the Light and High Rise will premiere. Ahead of those big premieres, they’ve finally gotten around to releasing one little clip from ISTL. BEHOLD, Lord Dragonfly singing with a twang:
It gives me great pleasure to introduce the first clip from I SAW THE LIGHT. @TIFF_NET tomorrow! #MoveItOnOver https://t.co/0xC30AghNF

Are you into this? I’ll include the original Hank Williams song below. I think Tom is trying his best. While my first reaction was “WTF?” to his singing voice, now that I’ve listened to it back-to-back with the original Williams recording, I don’t think it’s that bad at all. Now I’m mostly just wondering why it seemed like Tom was looking directing into the camera? Incidentally, we’re also getting our first listen at Elizabeth Olsen’s twang. She doesn’t sound too bad. This clip is set in 1947, just before Williams “transitioned to life at home with Audrey Mae” (played by Olsen).
There was a controversy last night during a live broadcast of America’s Got Talent, which is perhaps the most attention the show has ever received on Twitter. I guess Howie Mandel stepped in it by making a bulimia joke, which couldn’t be edited out before it hit the airwaves. This is all very bizarre, but there was an act called The Regurgitator (Stevie Starr), who was an audience favorite. His talent, obviously, is to swallow stuff and throw it back up. Howie, who was perhaps trying to cope with what he witnessed, said, “this would probably come out wrong, but you, sir, make bulimia entertaining.”

Update: Rutherford has refused to send her children back on their scheduled flight to Monaco. She has issued a statement claiming that no country has jurisdiction over the children, that they’ve been in “exile” for three years, and that “no state in this country currently requires me to send the children away.” It’s absolutely galling that she has done this and is incredibly harmful to her children, who have friends, family and school in Monaco. She has created an international kidnapping situation, the same thing she’s falsely accused her ex of doing. You can read her statement on People Magazine. The arrogance and hubris she’s showing is just incredible and belies belief, despite the fact that she’s given us many, many clues that she might pull a stunt like this. She just kidnapped her own kids
E! Online reports Kelly is really worried now because she thinks she might not see her kids again. A source tells them that she is “beside herself” and that “Kelly truly doesn’t know with certainty when she can ever see them [the children] again, as the Principality of Monaco will soon be considering her ex’s petition to obtain sole custody.” Here’s the thing, even if her ex gets sole custody she can still have visitation. Plus his lawyer has said that “Daniel will continue to promote Kelly’s relationship with the children. He believes that the children deserve to love both parents and has never nor does he intend to ever participate in any negative press directed at Kelly. As always, Daniel will continue to guard the privacy of the children, in their best interests and for their safety.”
So I doubt Daniel will cut Kelly out of their children’s lives, as she tried to do to him when she got him deported. She also threatened to keep the kids with her in NY several times.
On the fact that she finally loves running:
“Not usually one to post a paparazzi shot but this fills me with pride. Basically my whole life I have hated running and run like a wounded baby Pterodactyl. It was embarrassing and honestly I did not trust myself to escape a burning building or even move briskly towards a buffet. @jennikonner is directing the season finale of Girls and decided that as Hannah evolved so would her run, so she got me a training session with Matt Wilpers from Mile High Run Club. Within an hour I had a different relationship to this formerly torturous activity. I felt strong, swift and proud. I’m not about to embrace that triathlon life but it’s a true joy to continue getting more connected to my body and its powers.”
