ROTTEN TOMATOES: Gaga's — I mean Ridley Scott's! — House of Gucci is just barely above the 60% mark on Rotten Tomatoes among critics, but viewers (or people who say they've viewed it) give it upper 80s. The polarizing flick is set to debut in the Top 3 at the box office over Thanksgiving weekend, with Encanto and Ghostbusters: Afterlife its chief competition. (P.S. Jared Leto, who some say will be Oscar-nominated for HoG, and who all say will be Razzie-nominated, eats in the raw.)

INSTAGRAM: May seem like Madonna's spinning her wheels a lot lately on Instagram, but her latest WTF photos of herself in a bedroom triggered a reminder from the Queen of Pop that she rarely provokes without an agenda. This time, it is the altogether reasonable movement to free the nipple:
And, I mean, even if you aren't a booster of Madonna's, isn't she right? Why are women's breasts treated like genitalia? For example, Madonna's nipple is verboten. If she comes out as trans and has top surgery, the same nipple would be okay to see on social media. That is the very definition of sexism. Madonna is seeking to be the Ruth Bader Ginsberg of tits.
Oh, and if you're more an old-school Madonna fan, you'll fucking love this.
