2016 isn’t giving up without a fight
George Michael at 53 on Sunday and now Carrie Fisher at 60. Everyone is dying. Fuck you, 2016. First, George:
George Michael has died of heart failure, according to the singer’s longtime manager, Michael Lippman. “I’m devastated,” Lippman said Sunday. The manager received a call on Christmas morning notifying him that Michael had been found “in bed, lying peacefully.” The exact time of death is not clear at this time, but there was “no foul play whatsoever,” said Lippman.
And then Carrie:
Carrie Fisher, the actress, author and screenwriter who brought a rare combination of nerve, grit and hopefulness to her most indelible role, as Princess Leia in the “Star Wars” movie franchise, died on Tuesday morning. She was 60.A family spokesman, Simon Halls, said Ms. Fisher died at 8:55 a.m. She had a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles on Friday and had been hospitalized in Los Angeles.
Just when you think 2016 can’t get any crazier, this shit happens. I can’t wait until 2017. Those 19 days of peace before our country descends into civil war on January 20 are going to be so awesome. *giggles*
