Meghan Markle shot for the stars trying to book guests for her soon-to-be extinct podcast, but maybe the biggest one in the U.S. wasn’t impressed enough to bite the bait.
Taylor Swift politely declined Meghan’s request to have a chit chat on her “Archetypes” podcast … this according to the Wall Street Journal.
The M.O. of the podcast was to discuss challenges and stereotypes facing women … something Taylor has addressed in the past … but Meghan’s venue clearly wasn’t enticing enough.
Mind you Meghan did get good guests — Serena Williams, Mariah Carey and Paris Hilton — but the current, reigning queen of entertainment wasn’t gonna be reeled in.
Prince Harry apparently had high hopes for his failed Spotify endeavors … notably, trying to get Trump and Putin to talk about their childhood traumas. It’s an interesting pie-in-the-sky play, but it was clearly a no-go. Besides, can you imagine Putin saying, “I became a ruthless dictator because my pops didn’t love me.”
As we reported, Spotify has pulled the plug on their $20M deal, and the company’s honcho and podcast king, Bill Simons, excoriated H&M, calling them “grifters.”
