Winner and loser of the week in pop culture, featuring Carrie Fisher and former 'Glee' star
Carrie Fisher. God forbid a woman over 50 look like a woman over 50. Twitter spent the weeks of Star Wars: The Force Awakens after-glow carefully examining Gen. Leia Organa’s face to assess if she’d aged well since she first saved the galaxy nearly 40 years ago. Fisher, 59, killed that noise with a tweet written in text speak and emojis, proving she was as with it as ever. “Please stop debating about whether or not I have aged well. Unfortunately, it hurts all three of my feelings. My body hasn’t aged as well as I have …,” Buzzfeed translated. It figures the leader of the Resistance would only have three feelings: rage, hunger and awesome.
Mark Salling. Yuck Puck! Never one to go out on a high note, Salling, 33, may ring in the new year in the Los Angeles jail on charges of possession of child pornography. The former Glee star who played everyone’s bad boy crush Noah “Puck” Puckerman was arrested Tuesday after the LAPD found hundreds of images on his computer, according to TMZ. Salling’s career hasn’t quite taken off since he slipped off his letterman jacket, but he still managed to make news earlier this year when he settled for $2.7 million a 2013 lawsuit from a former girlfriend who accused him sexual battery, says the Washington Post.
