Pop Culture Fix: Kristen Stewart Will Not Be Planning a Wedding Thank You Very Much

Guy Fieri Will Most Likely Not Be Officiating Kristen Stewart’s Wedding

Kristen Stewart appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” last week, wherein she clarified that Guy Fieri will not be officiating her wedding but possibly will be there in spirit. (Like her new show about spirits!)

Apparently she’d thought he might be a good candidate for the job because they have similar hair, he seems like a nice guy, and he officiates a lot of queer weddings. (Apparently he once paid tribute to his late gay sister by marrying more than 100 couples at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival.) Stewart says she’s bad at planning so it’s unlikely they’ll actually get an officiant but maybe they’ll call Guy after the wedding and tell him he was there in spirit. As for when exactly she will officially tie the knot with Dylan Meyer, she doesn’t know and expects they will simply “surprise themselves.” I think this means that they will be getting married impulsively at a date and time of their choosing or else it will all be a big secret.

It was Stewart’s first appearance on Watch What Happens Live, and other interesting tidbits shared were that she got high for the first time when she was 14 or 15, her first celebrity crush was Harrison Ford, her first kiss was onscreen with Jamie Bell in Jumper and she’s currently watching My So-Called Life, which makes me very happy.

+ Bella Ramsey is getting praised for her performance in BBC Prison Drama “Prime,” and also took to Instagram to clarify something about their pronouns:

“I don’t mind which pronouns you use for me. I never wanted it to be a big deal… they/them feels the most truthful…. But comfort wise, I’m good with any. I have no dysphoria surrounding pronouns. Call me she, call me they, call me he, call be however you see me. You cannot go wrong! It’s impossible to misgender me. :)”

  1. The most radical thing a lesbian can do is destroy the oppressive system of marriage and saying I choose to live with my wife without the claws of the law watching. Fuck the capitalist weeding industrial complex and fuck cis-heteronoramty.

    • Fuck the thousand or so legal entitlements and protections that make marriage an institution distinct from shacking up in the United States? I guess if you want your shared property and parental rights just flapping in the breeze. . .

      • The person you replied to probably thinks those rights shouldn’t be tied to legally-recognized marriage, which is not that uncommon of an opinion even among people who do want to get legally married. I think maybe if you have a kid you should do what you need to do for that kid to have legally-binding ties to their family in case one of you bites it, but it’s okay for consenting adults to inconvenience themselves protesting something. I guarantee this couple knows that people are rewarded for being legally married, though.

        • Right, but in many cases one has to be pretty privileged or in a stable position to not participate in marriage as an institution. And it is disingenuous to critique the radicalness of queer folks who do decide to get married. You can demand for and work towards more radical ways of redefining family and securing rights that are not contingent on marriage, but you can’t fault people for deciding to use the tools that are available to them or for even finding it to be a deep and meaningful way of framing their relationship. Heck, my straight mom did not want to get married to her longterm partner (being disillusioned about marriage after some pretty gnarly ones), but ultimately had to as they both aged because her state banned domestic partnerships awhile back (ironically to hurt queer folks) and they needed the institutional security to care care of each other and get whatever help they could from our failing social safety net.

          Obviously not really talking about K. Stew here, but it is unnecessarily dismissive of how many queer people (and non-queer people in all honesty) are able to both question a system while also finding personal ways to reclaim it, redefine it, and push back against it. My partner and I would be way more vulnerable without it since she is not a citizen nor has any desire to become a citizen, and even then it is a precarious protection. Just think its important to leave space for people to enact agency over their lives and relationships whenever possible, while also working towards more just possibilities. You can be radically queer and married. Radical change is about collective effort, not about every individual action of your personal self being ‘the most radical’ thing you can do. I think those kinds of absolutists and puritanical attitudes focused on the individual are what push people away from more radical (leftist, liberatory, just, whatever we wanna call it) politics and make it easy for reactionary jerks to worm their way into centrists and move the goal post further and further right. Or add to the burnout people feel when they are trying to do the work.

          Anyway, back to appreciating Guy Ferrari and how I should of know he was a queer ally when I realized he was dressed the same way I dressed myself as a wee-little butch kid.

          • Also also, I know people who are in precarious positions do decide to protest against marriage by not getting married and I am not trying to argue against it. Just really dislike the framing that it’s the ‘most radical thing’ to do.
