You’re definitely not a part of Stan Twitter. If you have a Twitter account, you don’t use it to hunt down anybody bad-mouthing your favourite artist or shout about how they’ve snatched your wig with their latest single. You’ve remained innocent thus far, and it’s probably best to keep it that way!
You definitely have your favourites that you love to tweet about, but you wouldn’t go to war for them with strangers online. You just can’t be bothered to argue with people you don’t know, and more to the point, everybody’s allowed to like who they want. Not everybody has to be the same!
You’re neck deep in Stan Twitter and it’s waaaay too late for you to turn back now, unless you make a brand new account. You’ll defend your fave to the death and won’t let anybody discredit them and their success. But along the way you might get dragged, and some might say those fateful words: “It’s what she deserves.”
If you’ve watched it, you understand how glorious it is. And if you haven’t, well, you’re missing out.
See, it’s about a ~quirky~ woman who is worse at being a journalist than Rory Gilmore, and a guy who is literally every bland, handsome, white, quasi-tortured prince with a playboy reputation and a secret heart of gold you’ve ever watched. There’s a Christmas tree in every scene, in case you forget it’s a CHRISTMAS prince, i.e. the best kind of prince, obviously. I imagine he smells of cinnamon and wrapping paper IRL. And if you love romance clichés, guess what: THIS MOVIE HAS ALL OF THEM. Every single one. There’s even that scene from Beauty and the Beast with the wolves, except there’s just one (1) wolf and instead of roaring in its face, the prince…well, I won’t spoil it for you. JUST WATCH IT.
Basically, A Christmas Prince is simultaneously the best and worst thing Netflix has ever produced. I was so happy watching it and, let me tell you, in 2017 that is no easy feat. But it’s the kind of movie you need to watch with your snarkiest friends and/or Twitter followers because taking the piss out of it is 98% of the fun. Here are some of my fave tweets about it so far…
The TL;DR version: Kanye West released a song called “Famous,” which included a lyric about having sex with Taylor Swift. He claimed she’d approved the lyric, she denied it. She then referred to the incident in her Grammys acceptance speech which led to Kim Kardashian claiming she had proof in the form of an audio recording where Taylor appeared to approve the lyrics. Taylor denied it again. So Kim leaked the audio on Snapchat, Taylor’s reputation imploded, and she disappeared for months.
The storyline that has stuck the most with him was… well, this one:
“There was one episode where these guys were actually cutting their penises off and there’s a scene where me and Belzer are asking the guy, “Where did they do it?” And he says, “Right there on the table”, and we had our hands on the table and we both snatched our hands off the table like, “What the fuck are you talking about?!”. And, of course, the episode where the professional football players were going and having gay sex without their wives knowing it, that was a pretty deep one.”
And they all love cracking a good joke on set to lighten the mood.
“I think the funniest part about working on SVU is that everybody on there is always playing around, and we really have a lot of fun telling jokes. A lot of times we’ll have guests, and they take the show dead serious and we are making jokes. They don’t understand how we’re laughing and doing it. When you see it on the show it’s going to be dead serious. We have to lighten up the environment with a lot of humour.”
The cast do the majority of their own stunts, but not all of them.
“We don’t do all our own stunts. We do the majority of them, but sometimes have to be careful because of injuries. We shoot out of sequence, so if I shot a fight scene and got a black eye, the next scene I shoot might actually happen prior to that fight scene and you couldn’t explain the black eye!”
And his one piece of life advice, is as follows:
“If it’s at all possible, get out of crime, because your days are numbered in low digits in the underworld. And when you find a way out you should definitely get out if you can. Nobody wants to sit the last days of their life in prison.”
Having big, full lips has become a hot new “trend” in white mainstream culture, but that hasn’t really encouraged Grace to embrace her own lips. “The whole Kylie Jenner lip look blew up and I felt that hers looked much better than mine,” she admitted. “I feel as though my lips look bloated with lipstick.”
