One Directions Gets Consoled By Mother Monster

Lady Gaga One Direction VMA Booed

One Direction wins ‘Song of The Summer’ at the VMA and gets booed! It’s no surprise the boys won–when teenage girls get their hormones in an uproar there is no stopping them. But what did surprise everyone was when Lady Gaga hustled herself backstage to console the group. Check out mother monster pep talk to the boys: Continue reading

Taking Back the C-Word

Charlie Rangel Cracker Tea Party

I’m outraged! My congressmen used a racist term. That’s right Charlie Rangel called white people cr*ckers (I will modify cracker with ‘*’ as not to offend my readers.) Truth be told, I have only been out raged a few days, since hearing about it on Fox and Friends, before that I thought a cr*acker was a delicious shelf-stable snack–what do I know. Continue reading

Winklevosses Blowing Facebook Fortune?

Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss

What do two good-looking, rich, cocky dudes do with their free time? Buy play money. The Winklevoss twins, who fleeced Mark Zuckerberg for millions alleging he stole “their” idea for Facebook (MySpace might beg to differ), have now become Bitcoin moguls. According to the New York Times, the two have amassed one of the world’s largest Bitcoin fortune valued at $11 million. I guess this is what you do when you don’t have to worry about getting chicks and you have $220 million of Facebook money to blow.  Continue reading

The Top 10 Reasons Why The Hot Guy On HBO’s Girls Quit

I think it clear which one is leaving

I think it’s clear which one is leaving

The Girls obsessed website Jezebel is reporting: The One Hot Guy on Girls Quits Because He Can’t Stand Lena Dunham. Essentially they’re saying the rest of the guys on Girls are ugly–I’m totally ok with that. But if you dare imply Lena Dunham is the least bit pudgy or suggest she’s not pretty enough to sleep with Patrick Wilson Jezebel will go all Gloria Steinem on your ass. #doublestandard

Of course Jezebel jumps all over Christopher Abbott (a.k.a the hot guy on Girls), not even considering Lena Dunham might be a bit difficult to work with. Suffice it to say I have some pretty compelling scenarios for Mr. Abbott’s abrupt departure. Continue reading

Has American Idol imploded?

american-idol-2013-judges Nicki Minaj Mariah Carey Randy Jackson Keith Urban

The show once known as the Death Star for its rating dominance is getting trounced by its copy cat rival The Voice. How did Idol lose its Mojo? The deteriorating discourse between the judges doesn’t help matters. It’s clear Nicki and Mariah are barely tolerating each other, the interaction between them is almost zilch. Whether it’s a self-imposed fatwa or a mandate from the honchos at Idol the audience notices. Over at The Voice it seems like a love-fest compared to the dysfunction at idol. Fights on The Voice seem more like brother and sister squabbles than disagreements requiring beefed up security and threats of guns. Continue reading

I Love Nicki Minaj!

nicki_minaj_American_Idol_Late_FiredMmm Mmm Good… Nicki is like a Snickers bar: milk chocolatey goodness on the outside, delectably creamy on the inside with a just enough nuttiness mixed in for total satisfaction. Idol may have free-falling ratings, but it has nothing to do with Nicki Minaj–she’s delivering. You can’t take your eyes off her. I’m addicted to Nicki! I want to see a live feed just on Nicki streaming online. I don’t want to miss one bat of an eyelash. Everything from her animated expression to her off-the-wall critiques to her diva antics are fascinating. Continue reading

HBO’s Girls Triggers My Mid-Life Crisis!

HBO Girls Lena Dunham

There’s always a point in life when you question: “when do I become my parents?” It’s the point in life when you don’t get current music, you wont try newfangled gadgets and you think Facebook is a book of faces. Its happen to me! I don’t get Girls. The show is about a college-educated, lazy, self-centered millennial who feels entitled for everything in her life. She’s the product of a generation that has lavished her with praise her entire life for the slightest of accomplishments. Even the show, that is mediocre at best, wins numerous accolades–it’s reinforcement of the generation’s mantra: everybody is a winner. Will the coddling ever stop. Continue reading
