Lizzo Could Write 'Blonde,' But Joyce Carol Oates Couldn’t Write “Juice”
3165
Ej had her baby! Even though Brittany tries and fails to get the name Giuseppe off the ground, we promise Ej gave her newborn an iconic name. That being said, we share some news about the podcast’s future as Ej goes on maternity leave and get in one episode full of people who can’t stop pissing us off beforehand, like everyone behind Blonde, a movie so bad it led to an online debate about whether or not non-hotties can write about historical hotties. Other topics discussed: the Try Guys Try Infidelity; the right’s uproar over Lizzo playing James Madison’s crystal flute and EJ quizzes Brittany on some of our notable past himbos.Links referred to in this episode: https://twitter.com/TereseMarieM/status/1575270063518752768 https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-news/try-guys-ned-fulmer-leaves-youtube-1234600780/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6fIp7mMJ90&feature=youtu.be https://twitter.com/cmclymer/status/1574967955871629312 https://www.tiktok.com/@itsmerkey/video/7147016346662898987?is_from_webapp=v1&item_id=7147016346662898987 Learn more about your ad choices.

Forget ‘Don’t Worry Darling,’ It’s Dahmer Time (feat. Ceecee Jacobsen)
3408
With the Adam Levine sexts leaking and the Celtics head coach getting fired for cheating on Nia Long, this has been a banner week for shitty straight men. Luckily, on TikTok we have a new healthy model for masculinity: La Bussi, the new mascot for the Sabadell public transit system, a horrifying monstrosity who nonetheless has an extraordinary amount of swagger. Other topics discussed: the Miami Boys’ Choir (and whether or not they’ll be milkshake ducked); why Netflix should stop hiring hot people to play serial killers; more Don’t Worry, Darling drama, and whether children should be allowed on planes.

Adam Levine Is a Show-Stopper, Homie Hopper, Drama Starter (feat. Huddy)
3207
Is it a good idea to DM your recently dumped Instagram model mistress to ask if it’s OK if you and your supermodel pregnant wife name your baby after her? No, and while you didn’t need to be told that, Adam Levine of aggressively mediocre elevator band Maroon 5 fame apparently did. Other things you probably don’t need to be told: don’t get leg-lengthening surgery (ladies love a short king!), don’t get your sex education from 2 Girls 1 Cup, and don’t sleep on Wisconsin, the most premium vacation destination in our great nation. Feat. Huddy of “All the Things I Hate About You” fame, who finally reveals to the olds what a “homie hopper” is (Adam Levine could relate!) and shares that he dropped the Lil from his name to share the rawest, most real version of himself. Same, king! Also featuring an extremely impassioned synopsis of the Diane Keaton body swap comedy “Mack and Rita,” a film so bad that it gave Brittany COVID.Links referenced in this episode: https://www.tiktok.com/@leamichele/video/7144759304476773678?is_copy_url=1&is_from_webapp=v1&lang=en https://www.gq.com/story/leg-lengtheninghttps://jezebel.com/stories-about-my-brother-1835651181 https://www.tiktok.com/@sumnerstroh/video/7145094095915240750?_r=1&_t=8Voo2USJcF9&is_from_webapp=v1&item_id=7145094095915240750 > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRTEAmq5c2A https://www.inlander.com/spokane/no-idaho-schools-are-not-teaching-porn-literacy/Content?oid=24569006 https://www.tiktok.com/@georgejapan02/video/7142919408476802305?is_copy_url=1&is_from_webapp=v1&refer=embed&referer_url= https%3A%2F%2Fcdn.embedly.com%2F&referer_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.usatodaynetworkservice.com%2F&referer_video_id=7142919408476802305  Learn more about your ad choices.

Does Prince Harry Know Who Trisha Paytas Is? (feat. Sweaty Oracle)
3444
After months of speculation that the Palace was soft-launching the Queen’s death, Brittany and Ej break the news, Newsroom-style, that Queen Elizabeth II passed away at the tender age of 96….only to be replaced by her son, a boiled lunchroom carrot who secretly dreams of becoming a Horse Girl’s tampon. This week on DLTF, we talk Queen group threads and death memes (including one featuring a famously very pregnant influencer), the surprisingly inspiring (if not gross) love story of Charles and Camilla, racists pants-shitting over Halle Bailey’s casting in The Little Mermaid, and Martha Stewart’s incredibly horny Green Mountain Coffee sponcon. Feat. Sweaty Oracle, the Broadway DeuxMoi, to spill the tea on Lea Michele’s Funny Girl debut (why were there so many cameras in the audience on opening night???) and the real divas in the FG cast.

Chris Pine and Harry Styles Spit In Our Mouths Challenge (feat. Chrissy Chlapecka)
3807
This week for DLTF’s 50th episode (!) Brittany returns from her vacation to dissect Don’t Worry, Darling’s Venice Film Festival fracas, specifically Spitgate and whether Harry Styles spitting on Chris Pine is more than a figment of our collective horny imagination. We also discuss Leo sending Camila Morrone to the Island of Ancient Girlfriends, Lea Michele’s flop of a redemption profile, how TikTok thinks Marco Polo is a front for sex traffickers, and our horniness for Brendan Fraser.

Don’t Worry, Darling, About Harry Styles’ Oral Sex Scenes (feat. Luke Cook)
3786
Most things are fake on the internet, but at least one thing is real: Yung Gravy’s eternal, abiding love of MILFs, as demonstrated by his PDA with Addison Rae’s mom Sheri at the VMAs on Sunday. This week, we celebrate the couple for raising MILF awareness in America as well as dissect the outrageously addictive ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ drama, the stripper pole-centric moral panic gripping parents nationwide, social media platforms’ obligation to influencers, proper airport attire, and of course, himbos. Featuring actor and comedian Luke Cook discussing the latter subject.

The Well-Endowed Male Celeb About to Become the Next Pete Davidson (feat Morgan Sung)
3468
(In Stefan voice) This episode has everything: extremely online Tumblr zillennials canceling Elizabethan playwrights for no reason; stupid conspiracy theories about the tragic deaths of Emmy-nominated bisexual actresses; the real reason why Zach Braff made Garden State; dragging pervy That 70s Show stars, and surprisingly well-endowed SNL stars who are not named Pete Davidson. Featuring culture reporter Morgan Sung of NBC News, explaining the 2022 TikTok lesbian breakupapocalypse and JoJo Siwa’s rather unusual (re: badass) pickup techniques.

Andrew Tate and Addison Rae’s Stepdad Should Kickbox Each Other
2930
The past week has been a maelstrom of toxic masculinity, what with former kickboxer/sentient condom on hair salon floor Andrew Tate taking over everyone’s For You page and Addison Rae’s stepdad threatening to punch anyone who tries to have sex with his ex-wife. As a balm, we read Jenette McCurdy’s much-discussed memoir I’m Glad My Mom Died this week and chat about whether dogs in San Francisco are really addicted to methhead poop. Also, we feature a Himbo of the Week who wants you to confront your ugly spirit, plus Brittany states her theory that Yung Gravy is pretending to want to have sex with MILFs for clout. Prove us wrong, Gravy!Links referenced in this episode: https://www.rollingstone.com/tv-movies/tv-movie-news/jennette-mccurdy-nickelodeon-hush-money-memoir-excerpt-1393540/ https://www.dexerto.com/entertainment/tana-mongeau-says-monty-lopez-cheating-rumors-are-just-tip-of-the-iceberg-1867918/ https://www.tiktok.com/@montyjlopez/video/7129204843805199658 https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2022-01-03/san-francisco-property-crime-spikes Learn more about your ad choices.

Does Beyonce Worship Satan or Just Make Bangers? w/ Dev Lemons
3053
You’re a show-stopper! A bad liar! A homie hopper! This week, Ej and Brittany (back from her two-week birthday celebration) are returning with a discussion of the Satanic conspiracy theories about Beyonce’s new album, potentially misleading TikTok PMS ads, and a pop-punk love triangle for the ages culminating in perhaps the most messy breakup song ever written, Lil Huddy’s “All the Things I Hate About You” (what is a “homie hopper”? IDK but Shakespeare is quaking in his 16th century mutton-skin boots). Also discussed are Harry Styles’ secret initial One Direction audition, Pete and Kim’s breakup, and a homophobic ‘Hamilton’ bootleg production going viral on TikTok that Nancy Pelosi is probably drafting a tweet about as we speak. Featuring an interview with Dev Lemons, aka SongPsych on YouTune and TikTok. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

All Hail the Prince of Pegging (feat. Remy Kassimir)
2969
We have a spicy one this week! Producer Liz Garber-Paul sits in for Brittany, who’s on vacation this week, and we’re kicking off with our in-depth explainer of Prince William’s alleged love of prostate play and the tangled romantic web the royals weave, followed by our guest Remy Kassimir, host of the podcast How Cum, chatting about OnlyFans, eating ass on the first date, and how to have an orgasm if you’re poor. Also discussed: the triumphant return of Bama Rush Tok (“the top is from Shein, jewelry is normal, the shorts are from the Pants Store”), the recent spate of media coverage about Nazi furries, and why Kevin Bacon is proof that God loves unproblematic people.Links referenced in this episode:  https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/17/style/bama-rush-explained.html https://www.tiktok.com/@gracynedmondsonnn/video/7125569217960709419?_t=8UTOtb5HM3m&_r=1 https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-features/does-the-furry-community-have-a-nazi-problem-194282/ https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-features/furries-midwest-furfest-mainstream-932924/ https://wchstv.com/news/local/west-virginia-man-michael-edward-herman-charged-after-allegedly-making-terroristic-threats-toward-state-officials-governor-jim-justice-attorney-general-patrick-morrisey-law-enforcement-abortion-ban-roe-v-wade-twitter https://www.tiktok.com/@kevinbacon/video/7122986144182324526?_t=8US3gsPfDUk&_r=1 Learn more about your ad choices.

Why Brad Pitt Makes Everyone Fart Uncontrollably (feat. Loryn Powell)
2658
Let’s kick off the week with a shoutout to Ej’s therapist, who is a regular Don’t Let This Flop listener and who now, after listening to this episode, will be instrumental in helping Ej recover from her fear of birds. (They poop where they pee, and it’s weird they used to be dinosaurs, and anyone who thinks it’s cool is lying to themselves). The ladies also discuss Brittany’s secret history as an American Girl doll brunch influencer, the hetero celeb saddos lining up around the block to pick up the pieces of EmRata’s breakup, the TikTok Pink Sauce saga (and whether there is a difference between a sauce and a condiment), how Nicole Scherzinger permanently altered the course of European history, and the A-listers with nervous farting problems. Featuring special guest, “seltzpert” Loryn Powell, who recently went viral for her hard seltzer taste test video, a high point in White Girl history.Videos referred to here:  https://nypost.com/2022/07/19/miriam-margolyes-says-arnold-schwarzenegger-farted-in-my-face/ https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/the-x-factor-one-direction-formation-nicole-scherzinger-1387322/ https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-news/pink-sauce-tiktok-weird-food-trend-1386391/ https://www.tiktok.com/music/original-sound-7120324487928711979?referer_url=https%3A%2F%2Fmelmagazine.com%2F&referer_video_id=7120324521537621294&refer=embed&referer_url= https://melmagazine.com/en-us/story/black-cherry-hard-seltzer-taste-test-viral-tiktok https://pagesix.com/2022/07/15/emily-ratajkowski-sebastian-bear-mcclard-divorcing/https://www.thedodo.com/daily-dodo/emmanuel-the-emu-wont-stop-photobombing-mom-social-media-posts Learn more about your ad choices.

Does Drew Barrymore Know What Vabbing Is? (feat. Celebrity Memoir Book Club)
3318
t’s the summer stretch between July 4th weekend and Labor Day, which means the straight people are out in full force, dabbing vaginal fluids on their wrists to attract mates and attending secret early-2000s power couple weddings. This week, we discuss the “vabbing” trend on TikTok (and the Swiss pervert who may have laid the groundwork for it), Lana Del Rey’s new bisexual himbo boyfriend’s connection to not one but two extremely chaotic famous women, the J. Lo/Ben Affleck nuptials, whether Drew Barrymore is secretly Mr. Peanut Butter from Bojack Horseman, and why Brittany is confused by Reddit. We also sit down with the lovely ladies from the Celebrity Memoir Book Club podcast to chat yacht girls, EmRata’s divorce, and the Full House star daughter who got angry at their TikTok.

Even Lea Michele Is Having a Better Week Than Doja Cat
2678
Don’t tell us not to live, just sit and puttah! Life’s candy and the sun’s a ball of butta! Don’t bring around a cloud to rain on our paraaaaaade. Listen, as far as we’re concerned, there is only one story this week, and that is Lea Michele being officially cast as Beanie Feldstein’s replacement in the Broadway revival of Funny Girl. Not to be dramatic but it is the most formative event in history since the Indus Valley development of modern grain farming in 4,000 BCE, without which we would have no cereal! But in the event that you are not deeply invested in the fact that the girl from Glee will be assuming the role of Fanny Brice in a revival of a mediocre Broadway show from the 1960s, this week we’ve also got Elon Musk copping to a breeder fetish, Tucker Carlson shrieking like a bat about how porn and antidepressants cause school shootings, Doja Cat getting canceled for being too horny for Joseph Quinn, and Drew Barrymore barking, for some reason, because she learned how to count windows. [In Larry David voice] Good for her! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Kelly Ripa's Aversion to Chewing Foods Is Bumming TikTok Out (feat. Carley and Mercedes)
2993
Who’s the worst person you know to come out against Roe v. Wade being overturned? Whoever it is, scratch that, because the answer is almost certainly OJ Simpson, who came out on Twitter to give his…extremely un-asked-for opinion on the topic. This week on DLTF, we talk terrible men who have surprising opinions on the Dobbs decision, as well as the TikTok internal shower trend (spoiler: it made ½ of us poop), abortion Venmos, movie theaters we’ve gotten kicked out of, Horace the naked dancing man, and creepy-ass What I Eat In a Day videos. We also welcome Carley and Mercedes, the OnlyFans influencer couple who may or may not be sisters, to talk about their DNA test journey, what their moms think, and whether or not they’re doing this for clout.For more information on where to donate to abortion fund resources please visit this website:  https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-news/abortion-funds-to-donate-to-how-to-help-1351451/ Other links we reference in the episode:  https://www.rollingstone.com/tv-movies/tv-movie-news/cinema-bans-push-back-on-minions-viral-trend-1377971/ https://www.tiktok.com/@healthyhappy_rachelmoore/video/7107966864873049390 https://www.tiktok.com/@meredithmlynch/video/7114816521599323435https://www.harpersbazaar.com/beauty/diet-fitness/a31899667/kelly-ripa-food-diary/ https://www.insider.com/horace-tiktok-filter-viral-interview-creator-2022-6 https://www.bonappetit.com/people/article/kelly-wearstler-interview-with-bon-appetit Learn more about your ad choices.

Justin Timberlake Is Having His Matthew Morrison Moment (feat. Rebecca Jennings)
2823
This week on the internet, a lesbian OnlyFans creator couple found out they may be sisters, a TikToker is very publicly horny for Steve Irwin’s himbo son, and Justin Timberlake continues his downward spiral into cultural irrelevancy with his viral Beat Ya Feet dance (and proves that JC was the best NSyncer all along). Plus, Ej discusses her trip to VidCon (culminating in a hearty dose of petty theft!) and Vox senior correspondent Rebecca Jennings visits to discuss how the Minions became a symbol for the proleteriat. Steve Carell could have written Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto, but Karl could never have written Minions: The Rise of Gru.Links we refer to in this episode:  https://www.nbcnews.com/pop-culture/pop-culture-news/rockstars-minecraft-are-giving-teens-something-root-online-rcna35386 https://www.vox.com/the-goods/23177505/minions-2-rise-of-gru-explained-capitalism https://www.tiktok.com/@carleyandmercedes/video/7110345182012280070?is_from_webapp=1&sender_device=pc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6CQQ8SPPt0 https://www.rollingstone.com/feature/the-tragedy-of-britney-spears-2-254735/ https://www.tiktok.com/@megangrass12/video/7109012062063562030?is_from_webapp=1&sender_device=pc Learn more about your ad choices.

Chris Evans Is Single-handedly Revitalizing Boston’s Tourism Industry (feat. FaveTikToks420)
2855
We at DLTF have gone on record as being distinctly anti-Boston on this podcast. It’s a bad city with awful bars, terrible food and racist energy. And yet, Chris Evans on the promo tour for Lightyear is making a generation of millennial women want to pack their bags and move to Beantown. What kind of witchcraft is this? Also discussed: Camila Morrone reaches her Leo girlfriend expiration date, why Elvis is canceled (again) (also, exactly how many pounds of poop he had in his colon when he died), why pandas probably aren’t real, and why TikTok is trying to get you to start selling feet pics on FeetFinder. (Girl, don’t do it, it’s not worth it.) Feat. Leia Jospe, the mastermind behind our favorite repository of cringe content, FaveTikToks420. Happy Camila Morrone turns 25 day to all!

Nick Cannon Is Having the Ultimate Feral Girl Summer (feat. @__mull)
3177
This week’s ep has everything: breeder fetishes, ASMR, and a himbo who is either sleeping or dead, we’re not sure which one. Brittany and Ej kick off their careers as aspiring ASMRtists with a new Flop or Not? segment to try out TikTok’s “Healthy Coke” trend, aka balsamic vinegar and seltzer water, before parsing the Shein human trafficking hoax, the latest season of Love Island, and explain what serial lady-boofin’-inner Nick Cannon, Jeffrey Epstein, and a hot professor who sells sperm in a Target bathroom on Atlantic Ave. have in common. Feat. an interview with Feral Girl Summer creator Mollie and a very special Himbo of the Week, a horse named Sugar who is either sleeping or dead.Links referred to in this episode: https://www.tiktok.com/@mandyvjones/video/7106302944194071851?is_from_webapp=1&sender_device=pc > https://www.businessoffashion.com/news/retail/report-shein-violating-labour-laws/ https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/cries-for-help-shein-fast-clothing/ https://nypost.com/2017/06/17/sperminator-has-sired-dozens-of-kids-and-there-could-be-more-coming/ https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-news/jeffrey-epstein-doctors-fertility-clinics-semen-875094/ https://www.bt.com/tv/entertainment/love-island-contestants-cast https://www.tiktok.com/@__mull https://www.today.com/popculture/popculture/what-is-feral-girl-summer-meaning-rcna28179 https://twitter.com/jimrosecircus1/status/1535989916001247232?cxt=HHwWgICxnZms99AqAAAA Learn more about your ad choices.

This week on Don't Let This Flop, we have a special treat of a bonus episode for superfans of Netflix's The Circle: Deleesa and Trevor St. Agathe, the winner and runner-up of Season 2 and Season 4 respectively, and the king and queen catfishes of The Circle. Brittany and Ej have Deleesa and Trevor to spill the tea from last season (and what backstabbing convos didnt make it onto the show), why no woman has ever won playing The Circle as themselves, and why everyone uses those cheesy-ass hashtags.

Charlie Puth vs. Laura Bush Smackdown
2717
Why is the Queen the same size as Paddington Bear? What is worse: being a grown man who openly brags about masturbating to Maroon 5 and ironically using the word “hungies”; or being a former First Lady married to a war criminal? And who, pray tell, lied to Liam Payne about his Spotify streams? Plus, Brittany and Ej unpack the inherently homophobic nature of the mere existence of Matthew Morrison, uncover Rush Limbaugh’s past as a Pizza Hut spokesmodel, and determine once and for all the best frozen pizza brand on the market.Links referenced in this episode:Charlie Puth On TikTok, Dating Apps, & Writing Songs To Turn You On https://twitter.com/mrmikecowan/status/1533164454057332736?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1533164454057332736%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url= https%3A%2F%2Fwww.townandcountrymag.com%2Fsociety%2Ftradition%2Fa40195878%2Fqueen-elizabeth-paddington-bear-platinum-jubilee-video%2F https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/liam-payne-one-direction-interview-logan-paul-podcast-1361543/ https://www.eonline.com/news/1333278/matthew-morrison-sounds-off-on-blatantly-untrue-statements-about-his-sytycd-firing Learn more about your ad choices.

The Queen Isn’t Dead, But The Mormon MomTok Swinger Circle Sure Is (feat. dinonuggets.jpg)
3136
Today marks the launch of Pride Month, a time of elaborate parades and trying not to get body glitter in your $11 vodka soda. It is also a time when large corporations pretend they care about queer rights by (drumroll) unveiling Live Laugh LGBTQ and Yass Kween tees. We had Dinonuggets.jpg, aka Connor Clary, on to talk about 2022 corporate pride merch, and how it manages to get more and more cringe each year.

F*cking Nerds is the Best Way to Get Your Instagram Account Back (feat. Kitty Lixo)
3160
Why is Halsey beefing with her label on TikTok? Is a double yellow-headed Amazon parrot on TikTok giving Harry Styles a run for his money? Do we care that the elusive gossip master behind DeuxMoi is just a rich 30-something white lady (allegedly)? This week on Don’t Let This Flop, we’ve got all that plus the breastfeeding vs. formula wars, the Titty Crow from The Witch making his triumphant return, and OnlyFans model Kitty Lixo revealing how she managed to defeat the powers-at-be at Meta with some good old-fashioned nerd back-breaking.

Cara Delevigne, Can You Chill? (ft. Terra Newell)
3322
In 2016, Terra Newell killed her stepdad in self-defense. Her stepfather’s scams and Newell’s assault that led to his demise was the subject of the Dirty John podcast and TV show. Now, she’s gone viral on TikTok for reclaiming her story. She joined us for an interview. Plus, we wonder if Lizzo’s “About Damn Time” has resurrected the dance challenge, Cara Delevigne’s bad vibes, what we would do if Patti Lupone yelled at us, and crown forever Tumblr It Boy Matthew Gray Gubler our Himbo of the Week.

The Eel Daddy Has Logged On (ft. Nick Tobler)
2977
This week we feature a very special Himbo of the Week: Nick Tobler, aka @cowturtle, a Tiktoker who's gone viral for having a creepy eel pit in his basement (and who has attracted a slew of incredibly thirsty comments from ray-finned fish enthusiasts in the process). We also call out the influencers who have NOT commented on Roe v. Wade potentially being overturned (all my bitches hate the Supreme Court), plus discuss some resources for people who want to help out in states where the right to a safe and accessible abortion is under serious threat right now. Also discussed: Jack Harlow being painfully horny for Dua Lipa, and Chet Hanks being painfully horny for getting roasted on the internet.

The Lea Michele Renaissance Is Nigh (feat. Alex Walker)
3408
Did you know that Elon Musk and Amber Heard allegedly had a threesome with Cara DeLevigne? Well, if you didn’t, you do now! You also probably haven’t been spending time on TikTok, where true crime creators have been obsessively tracking the ongoing Johnny Depp/Amber Heard defamation trial, with predictably gross and skeevy results. This week, Brittany and Ej talk about creators profiting off misinfo about the trial, as well as the inevitable Lea Michele renaissance (another beloved Spring Awakening alum makes a shocking guest appearance), Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly’s blood-drinking rituals, the scourge of non-famous creative directors on Raya, and why himbos on TikTok are crushing watermelons with their thighs. Featuring Alex Walker, a candidate for Colorado’s 3rd congressional district running against batshit QAnon head Lauren Boebert, who has a rather unorthodox TikTok strategy that has made him the target of both progressives and poop fetishists.

Is Drake Horny for Abby Shapiro? (feat. Juniper)
2898
While the celebs (and Brittany!) were partying at Coachella (and while Timothee Chalamet was allegedly making out with a model/influencer who claims to have invented intersectional feminism), us normies at home were freaking out over the removal of the Snickers dick vein, an iconic American institution second only to the green M&M's slut boots. Fortunately, this did not happen because the rumors were totally made up by @Juniper, a professional shitposter who spoke with DLTF about what it's like to accidentally invent a right-wing moral panic. Other topics discussed on the pod: why Drake follows Abby Shapiro on Instagram, a himbo who makes pangolin sculptures out of Baby Bell wax, and dozens of synonyms for "boobs," each one grosser than the last. Don’t Let This Flop is a weekly podcast from Rolling Stone, centered around a roundup of this week in TikTok trends and memes, from dances to recipes to makeup challenges to creepy viral videos to celebrity videos to grassroots campaigns intended to raise awareness of social issues. Join hosts Brittany Spanos and EJ Dickson as they unpack their significance, with special guests to break down the latest trends in TikTok. Some of these stories will be silly; some will be more serious. All will have wider implications outside the world of TikTok.

Why Is Al Pacino Obsessed with Shrek? (ft. Mythical Kitchen chef Josh Scherer)
2739
We kick off this week with a classic troll: a viral video of "Spokane-style pizza," a concoction featuring canned salmon, mozzarella, fry sauce, and fresh strawberries that is not at all from the eastern Washington/Coeur d'Alene region. Created by DLTF guest Josh Scherer, a video of him making "Spokane-style pizza" went viral on Twitter and TikTok, leading to a slew of death threats because the internet is a very normal place to be! Other topics discussed this week: Britney's pregnancy reveal, the underrated genius of Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club, a high school musical theater director having a major power trip on TikTok, and why the fuck Al Pacino is always photographed with wire headphones.  Don’t Let This Flop is a weekly podcast from Rolling Stone, centered around a roundup of this week in TikTok trends and memes, from dances to recipes to makeup challenges to creepy viral videos to celebrity videos to grassroots campaigns intended to raise awareness of social issues.

The World's Worst Heterosexuals Are Elizabeth Holmes and Sunny Balwani
2767
This week has been hell, but fortunately for us, it's been a banner week for Straight People — which is why we decided to do a very special Straight People-themed edition of DLTF, exploring the heteros and their shenanigans. First up on the docket are Silicon Valley's favorite hetero lying liars, Elizabeth Holmes and Sunny Balwani, an embarrassment to Straights Everywhere, whose weird and disgusting relationship is documented in skin-crawling detail the recent season finale of The Dropout. We also talk about Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker's recent Vegas "wedding" (actually just a promo for their Hulu show); Avril Lavigne getting engaged to a guy who was in a throuple with Bella Thorne; and an extremely confusing Instagram post by Andrew Garfield's ex. Featuring a special edition of "Did a Himbo Tweet This, or President Trump?," featuring two-time Himbo of the Week Thoren Bradley.

Does Snoop Dogg Know Where He Is?
2648
If he does, does he care? If not, should we tell him? Such are the questions raised every week by American Song Contest, the American version of Eurovision that's hosted by a constantly disassociating Snoop and Kelly Clarkson that's currently running on NBC. This week, we mourn the elimination of the absolute bop "New Boot Goofin" as well as discuss Ashley Tisdale blowing the lid off the celebrity Architectural Digest house tour complex by admitting on camera she doesn't actually own books. Not since Dakota Johnson revealed she doesn't actually keep decorative limes in her house have the celebs dropped such a bombshell! Featuring special guest Washington Post columnist Taylor Lorenz, to talk about Facebook's alleged smear of TikTok; and an extremely annoying dance trend by way of Kazakh kiddie YouTube.  Don’t Let This Flop is a weekly podcast from Rolling Stone, centered around a roundup of this week in TikTok trends and memes, from dances to recipes to makeup challenges to creepy viral videos to celebrity videos to grassroots campaigns intended to raise awareness of social issues.

The Will Smith Oscars Slap Made the Entire Internet Stupid
3169
When Will Smith slapped Chris Rock over a bad joke he made about his wife at the Oscars, we probably could've predicted that the Takes would be bad. But few could have predicted that it would have spawned an entire cottage industry of pundits comparing Smith to Putin, or clutching their pearls over what would have happened had Chris Rock been Betty White (spoiler alert: nothing, because she is dead). This week, we talk Bad Slap Takes as well as Summer Sex Ed camp, Harry Styles' Easter egg filled album rollout, and ponder why Shake from Love Is Blind simply won't shut the f**k up. We also crown Family Feud host Steve Harvey as our Himbo of the Week, and debate whether he is responsible for making face-sitting mainstream. Don’t Let This Flop is a weekly podcast from Rolling Stone, centered around a roundup of this week in TikTok trends and memes, from dances to recipes to makeup challenges to creepy viral videos to celebrity videos to grassroots campaigns intended to raise awareness of social issues.

Are Hilary and Haylie Duff Secretly Feuding?
2371
This week the internet has been stuck in a nostalgia loop. "Gangnam Style" is making a comeback on TikTok (albeit as a backdrop for people to share their trauma about cheating boyfriends and being almost-murdered). Pete Davidson is getting branded with his girlfriend's name, again. And TikTok is replete with rumors of Hilary and Haylie Duff, your favorite early-aughts Disney tween sibling stars, being enmeshed in a feud, for possible reasons that Brittany and Ej rehash this week at an exhausting length. Is it politics? In-law drama? Related to the 2006 classic Material Girls? We simply don't know, but we're sure gonna speculate at length to try to find out! Plus, we once crown a pair of hot dumb twins as Himbos of the Week (who thankfully, unlike other TikTok twins, do not pretend to kiss for clout).  Don’t Let This Flop is a weekly podcast from Rolling Stone, centered around a roundup of this week in TikTok trends and memes, from dances to recipes to makeup challenges to creepy viral videos to celebrity videos to grassroots campaigns intended to raise awareness of social issues.

Zoe Kravitz and Robert Pattinson are Making America Too Horny
2949
How did Grimes hide a newborn baby in an Airbnb? Are Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz pretending to be in love with each other on The Batman press tour? Why does Denver appear to such a magnet for TikTokers having condom-free sex? And finally: would you join Scientology if John Travolta were still hot? For our 25th (!) (!) episode, Brittany and Ej discuss such pressing questions of our time, as well as an alleged Pentecostal Christian dance cult, a massively compelling (but weirdly depressing) TikTok sex scandal unfolding in real time, and our new extremely Italian-American Himbo of the Week.  Don’t Let This Flop is a weekly podcast from Rolling Stone, centered around a roundup of this week in TikTok trends and memes, from dances to recipes to makeup challenges to creepy viral videos to celebrity videos to grassroots campaigns intended to raise awareness of social issues.

Pamela Anderson, the 32-Bar-Chef, and Zelensky Thirst
2809
When will liberals learn their lesson about sexualizing political figures? From Michael Avenatti to Andrew Cuomo, it never ends well. That hasn’t stopped a new batch of thirsty tweets that’s emerged about Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky after Russia’s invasion of his country. (Spoiler alert: they’re cringe as hell.) We also discuss Pam and Tommy (not to mention Putin’s crush on Pamela Anderson), the millennial musical theater aficionado the 32-Bar-Chef, and crown a special Himbo of the Week.

Euphoria’s Angus Cloud, AnnaLynne McCord’s Poem to Putin, and the Queen’s Fake Death
2435
It’s been a long week — somehow longer than usual. Queen Elizabeth II’s death was falsely reported by a celebrity blogger who may or may not have confused her with a musician from Queens of the Stone Age. Russia invaded Ukraine, and celebrities posted their reactions in the most cringy ways possible. (Except Cher, of course, who is perfect.) Then there was the Euphoria finale, so we had to break down our love for Angus Cloud.  Don’t Let This Flop is a weekly podcast from Rolling Stone, centered around a roundup of this week in TikTok trends and memes, from dances to recipes to makeup challenges to creepy viral videos to celebrity videos to grassroots campaigns intended to raise awareness of social issues.

Julia Fox, Flat Earth Conspiracy Theories, and the Cringe Polyamorists of TikTok
3144
No sound has captured our For You Page — and, dare we say it, the soul of an entire generation — quite like Julia Fox saying "Uncut Jahhhhhhmz." Fox has gone viral not for her relationship with her now-ex paramour Kanye West, but for her role as Josh Safdie's self-described muse in Uncut Gems (or is it Uncah Jahhhms?), and the interview has got our FYPs in a chokehold. Also discussed on this ep: why poly couples make such cringe TikTok content, a Himbo of the Week who claims to spend $2000 a month on Voss alone, and a definitive ranking of bottled water. Special guest: Daily Beast journalist and author of the recent book Off the Edge Kelly Weill on the spread of Flat Earth conspiracy theories.  Don’t Let This Flop is a weekly podcast from Rolling Stone, centered around a roundup of this week in TikTok trends and memes, from dances to recipes to makeup challenges to creepy viral videos to celebrity videos to grassroots campaigns intended to raise awareness of social issues.

Kim and Kanye, the Tinder Swindler, and Swiffergate
2968
For the past two weeks, Kanye West has constantly been posting on his previously dormant Instagram, aggressively campaigning to get his ex-wife Kim Kardashian back. Some of this behavior, such as referring to her current boyfriend Pete Davidson as "Skete" or posting Marvel Civil War memes, has been absurdly comical — but much of it has arguably crossed the line into public harassment, with Kanye most recently ranting about their daughter North's TikTok and posting Kim's messages pleading with him to stop. To help explain what's been going on with Kim and Kanye, we enlisted resident TikTok Kardashians expert @Kardashian.Kolloquium to shed some light on the situation. We also talk about the Tinder Swindler (and whether or not we'd swipe right), a New York magazine piece about fraudster Danielle Miller, and crown a special Valentine's Day-themed Himbo of the Week.  Don’t Let This Flop is a weekly podcast from Rolling Stone, centered around a roundup of this week in TikTok trends and memes, from dances to recipes to makeup challenges to creepy viral videos to celebrity videos to grassroots campaigns intended to raise awareness of social issues.

Che Diaz, the Tings Tings, and the Cancellation of Meena the Elephant
2313
We promised we weren’t going to talk about And Just Like That on the pod…..and yet, the first 18 minutes of this episode are devoted to And Just Like That. We bid farewell to the first season of the endlessly divisive Sex and the City reboot, revisiting its best moments from the cringe (every scene with Che and Miranda, basically) to the unnecessarily horny (every scene with Che and Miranda, basically) to the sob-inducing (Steve won’t take off his wedding ring!!!! d’awwwwwwww). We also discuss the That’s Not My Name trend, the yassification of Pinocchio, and why the cartoon elephant from Sing is cancelled (spoiler: she deserves it).

'Euphoria' Drama, 'Straight People: Gay Edition,' and What Is Jeremy O Harris Doing?
2892
Why is this season of Euphoria going completely off the rails? What happens to TikTok-famous gay influencer couples when they break up? And why can't playwright and Emily In Paris star Jeremy O. Harris stay off of TikTok? On this week's Don't Let This Flop, we address these burning questions and far more, such as Sydney Sweeney's classic car restoration TikTok account, whether the pop band Future X would survive in a Sims house, and we pledge our love to freegan TikTok himbos who got rejected from Juilliard.

West Elm Caleb, the Emo Festival, and the Eroticism of @mrbigchops69
3059
How did a 6'4" West Elm furniture designer get our FYPs in a chokehold for a solid week? This week on Don't Let This Flop, we unpack the ethical morass of the West Elm Caleb saga, in which the women of NYC TikTok banded together to put a 25-year-old tall guy named Caleb on blast for allegedly lovebombing, then ghosting, them. Brands got involved, and then West Elm's Instagram got involved — and then things turned ugly. We talked to Leah, aka @jewishbrat, one of the TikTok creators who had matched with Caleb and hopped on the trend, to get her thoughts on what it's like to go viral for accidentally ruining someone's life — and how she feels about taking part in the saga afterwards. We also discuss When We Were Young, aka the upcoming Vegas festival that seems destined to fail; bring you an update on a former Himbo of the Week, aka the Gummy Deep Throat Guy; and pay homage to thirst trap satirist extraordinaire @mrbigchops69.  Don’t Let This Flop is a weekly podcast from Rolling Stone, centered around a roundup of this week in TikTok trends and memes, from dances to recipes to makeup challenges to creepy viral videos to celebrity videos to grassroots campaigns intended to raise awareness of social issues.

The Jonas Bros Vax Up With Biden, Miss America's 100th Anniversary, and Gorgeous Girls Love Soup
3105
On TikTok, there perhaps is no insult more devastating than to be told by a teenager that your content is cringe. If this is the case, then the Jonas Brothers and the White House had quite a rough week. The pop trio teamed up with the Biden administration for a quick TikTok promoting the importance of vaccines by using the Bing Bong audio from a viral video by the YouTube channel SideTalk. On this week’s episode, we discuss the Biden/JoBros collab, as well as PageantTok in honor of the 100th anniversary of Miss America (you can read Dickson's dispatch from the event here), secret fuckboy train enthusiasts, the "Gorgeous Gorgeous Girls Love Soup" meme, TikTok moral panics, and Nancy Reagan as the original Throat GOAT.

TikTok is not exactly the most sex-positive app, yet sex-worker content tends to go viral, even if TikTok would prefer otherwise.

We also discuss the resurgence of the One Direction and 5 Seconds of Summer groupie communities, with special guest, music writer and columnist Larisha Paul, weighing in on the early days of both fandoms.

With his trusty GoPro-style camera in tow, he celebrates the glory of "marvelous locos" across Great Britain (including one named Dick Mabbutt) taking followers behind the scenes of railway stations and depots. Other topics discussed on this episode include lesbian Canadian ceramicists, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello's breakup, the chaotic energy of Hinge's new audio feature (also, which celebrities Brittany has spotted on Raya), and the relative hygiene of deepthroating a 12-foot gummy snake.

Taylor Swift, Astroworld Conspiracy Theories, and Hilary Duff’s Weird Shoulder Dancing
2604
One of the biggest trends on TikTok over the past few weeks is a 2007 video of Hilary Duff dancing poorly to a perfume ad on the Today Show. The actor and singer recently made a resurgence in a viral clip of the morning show performance to promote her perfume With Love...by Hilary Duff, as well as the eponymous single she released with the fragrance. Another video, a performance of the single with the same choreography on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, has also gone wildly viral, spawning the Hilary Duff Challenge. On this week in Don't Let This Flop, co-hosts Brittany Spanos and Ej Dickson discuss Duff, "With Love" and the resurgence of early-aughts culture in general (including the return of celeb perfume lines!), as well as Astroworld Satanic Panic conspiracy theories, the ubiquity of Erika the Money Lawyer and her consumerist hacks, and of course, the emotional destruction wrought by the release of Taylor Swift's Red (Taylor's version!). Is Jake Gyllenhaal doing OK this week? Honestly, who cares.

Pete Davidson’s D**k, the Ed Sheeranaissance, and John Travolta and Tommy Lee's BFFship
2144
It's no secret that Ed Sheeran has historically been considered, for lack of a better term, uncool. The Brit's musical output skews on the schmaltzier side, and tracks like "Perfect" and "Thinking Out Loud" have traditionally been considered wedding dance songs or the soundtrack for freshman high schoolers' first experience with digital penetration. Yet a new wave of fans on TikTok are begging the question: is Ed Sheeran actually awesome? On this week's Don't Let This Flop, co-hosts Spanos and Dickson discuss the impending "Ed Sheeranaissance," as well as Tommy Lee and John Travolta's shocking cookies-and-lemonade bromance, and talk to Himbo of the Week Sampson Gaglione (best known as the Shirtless Guy who Reacts to Thirsty Comments About Him) about how he accidentally built a feminist community on TikTok. Inspired by TikTokers' obsession with Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian's fledging, highly public relationship, they also play a very special game with podcast editor Dan Stein celebrating Davidson's penis.

Selena Gomez and Chris Evans, Maneskin, and the DuoLingo Owl vs. Mr. Peanut
2519
TikTok is a platform populated primarily by teenagers, a demographic that can smell inauthenticity a mile away. So as it becomes more mainstream, how can brands gain traction on it? This week on Don't Let This Flop, cohosts Brittany Spanos and Ej Dickson spoke to the TikTok voice behind the DuoLingo owl itself, Zaria Parvez, the social media coordinator for DuoLingo, asking such burning questions as how brands can thrive on TikTok, whether she's ever gotten in trouble for making the owl too horny, and if the DuoLingo owl has ever taken a human life (she claims it has not.) Other subjects discussed this week are the Italian band Mäneskin, which went viral after winning the Eurovision competition earlier this year; conspiracy theories about Selena Gomez and Chris Evans boinking based on his Instagram stories; hot movers, and Mr. Peanut's butt.

2478
What was really going on when Lauren visited her boyfriend Robbie at college, surprising him as he sat on a couch with three girls? It turned into TikTok’s hottest clip, of course, with millions of fans picking apart whether the 20-second clip was definitive proof of Robbie cheating. After watching roughly 6,000 response videos breaking down theories, we talked to actual body language expert Traci Brown, who reveals which people in the TikTok you should be paying attention to — and it’s not Lauren or Robbie. “Something is going on more than what we know,” Brown tells Rolling Stone. This week we also bring you a look at what makes Emily Mariko’s leftover salmon videos so appealing, and a special double-Himbo of the Week.   Don’t Let This Flop is a weekly podcast from Rolling Stone, centered around a roundup of this week in TikTok trends and memes, from dances to recipes to makeup challenges to creepy viral videos to celebrity videos to grassroots campaigns intended to raise awareness of social issues.
