Russell Brand appears before Parliament to fight for ‘love and compassion’ for drug addicts.

So while Katy’s been off making out with the guitarist from Florence and the Machine at Coachella, Russell Brand has been visiting Parliament, pleading for drug addicts to be treated with “love and compassion.” That’s the short version, so you should just watch the videos below because aside from the fact that I’m a bit in love with Russell Brand, they’re really interesting:

 

The two best clips are on the BBC’s website, and of course, you can’t embed them, so if you’re interested, you can click here and here to watch them. And you should, because you can actually hear what he’s trying to say, as opposed to a string of quips and jokes badly edited together like the second video up there.

Michael Lohan versus Rosie O’Donnell. Oh, yes.

I don’t think I could wish for anything greater, blog wise. Especially because I’m sure this will only be the beginning of a saga that will go back and forth for awhile because realistically, they both act like children when they get into fights.

First off, let me just tell you guys that I love the shit out of Rosie O’Donnell, and I’ll tell you why. 90% of it is because she was in Now & Then and that movie has a lot of power over my life to this day. The other 10% is because she loves Britney as much as I do and to my knowledge has never talked shit about her. In my eyes, even when Rosie’s being a psycho bitch, I will still love her (that’s allllllmost a Britney reference, for you old school fans playing along.).

If you’re familiar with this blog, you’ll know I have a soft spot in my heart for Michael Lohan and his mesh shirts, too. Not because I think he’s a good person, because he’s absolutely not. He kicked his ex girlfriend in the vagina. For real. It happened. But for the sheer entertainment I get out of knowing about his life, I kind of love him. He’s just such a ridiculous caricature of a man. But enough about that, let’s get to the drama.

So this is what went down on the Today show the other day:

 

Now, I don’t necessarily agree with Rosie, because I kind of think Lindsay’s a decent actress when she’s got her shit together. Whether she’s got her shit together and whether she can play Liz Taylor remains to be seen, but realistically… it’s a lifetime movie. It’s not like it’s going to the cinemas, she’s not going for Oscars by doing it, she’s just trying to get her name back out there, and good on her.

Michael Lohan, being the sweet dude he is, decided to get involved, and said the following to GossipCop:

“He/she who is without sin, let them cast the first stone and judge not lest you be judged,” says Lohan, going on to note O’Donnell’s “failed marriage, two failed shows, slamming other celebs and high profile people. Please!”

“My daughter and even I may have had our issues in life, but it’s about making things right and turning things around… I was and am the first one to point out my own faults, Lindsay’s and even others when we are wrong, but when we are not, I will fight tooth and nail for what’s right!”

“In this case, Rosie, you are wrong. So why don’t you… just sit back. Shut up and see if Lindsay proves herself before blabbing your unwarranted opinions.”

Words can’t explain to you guys how happy the first paragraph makes me. ‘Rosie, don’t judge, or you’ll be judged. By the way, here’s a list of things I’m judging you for right now.’ Oh, Michael, you ridiculous bastard, I love you.

So far Rosie hasn’t responded and Lindsay has yet to get in the mix, but I’ll keep you guys posted.

So I guess the Kardashians aren’t fucking off out of our lives any time soon. Bummer.

 

Fuckery.

I was so hoping all their ridiculous shows would have to end sometime in the near future, because I’m starting to get to that point where I can’t remember a time when they weren’t in my face all the goddamn time, and that makes me super unhappy. I like to think of myself as someone with high levels of tolerance to trash, but I just feel as though my time could be devoted to other trashbags and I’d feel better about it.

Anyway, I’m sure this will make their fans excited, because they’ll be able to keep up with these guys for at least another three seasons, so good for them.

Oh, what’s that? Nicki Minaj is back on Twitter? Predicted it!

 

Before we get started, let me just say that I typed ‘Nicki Minaj happy’ into Google and this came up. Doesn’t she look ecstatic? You can really feel the joy radiating out of her.

So anyway, Nicki’s back on Twitter. If like me you assumed this would happen, give yourself a pat on the back, and congratulate yourself on having premonitions like Phoebe from Charmed:

 

That’s pretty much all there is to this story so far because she hasn’t tweeted anything yet, but what a great excuse to make a Charmed reference, right? I love Shannen Doherty, she’s a fierce bitch.

Demi Lovato talks about her lost potential as one of the great trainwrecks of her generation.

Well… not exactly, but this blog’s not called PopCultureFacts for a reason. Mostly because it would be super boring, but also because it doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, and also because I can’t make drug references with the acronym PCF.

Anyway, let’s get to it. Demi Lovato’s done an interview with a British magazine called Fabulous (which in itself I think is fantastic. What a great title.) and reportedly addressed the rumours about drug and alcohol abuse that have followed her around since she went into rehab for depression and self-harm, as well as eating disorders bulimia and anorexia. She’s quoted in the magazine as saying:

Promoters gave me drugs and alcohol in restaurants or clubs. They wanted me to come back so I would be seen there. They were basically kissing my ass. Being a celebrity can be dangerous… nobody says ‘no’. That’s why so many end up overdosing and dying. It could definitely have happened to me.

She goes on to say that she’s doing a lot better now, and although she doesn’t claim to be ‘fixed’ and still slips up every now and then, she’s happy and has a more positive outlook on life.

I like Demi, personally. I’m not the hugest fan of her work, given that ballads aren’t really my jam (although I’ll admit to getting down to Skyscraper a couple of times), and full disclosure, I watched Princess Protection Program the other day with her and Selena, and it’s not nearly as awesome as some of the other tween films I’ve seen (like, say, New York Minute or The Lizzie McGuire Movie). But I like her. She seems like a sweetheart, and I so badly want to watch the MTV documentary about her but I can’t find anywhere to watch it online (this is me saying “if you know where I can watch it online then leave me a comment and tell me, please!!”). But yeah, good on her for getting her shit together. That’s basically what I’m thinking about this.

Trailer: The Five-Year Engagement

 

So the trailers for The Five-Year Engagement have been released, and I’m into it. Reuniting Jason Segel with Nicholas Stoller, the director of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, is a recipe for a good time in my book. I love Forgetting Sarah Marshall, so I feel pretty good about those two pairing up again. I also really love Chris Pratt on Parks and Rec, and I just think Alison Brie is so pretty. Yes. I sometimes like actors and actresses entirely because of their good looks. You know you do too. Emily Blunt is kind of whatever to me, but it looks like she’ll be funny in this, so that’s cool. Watch the two trailers below:

 

So what are you thinking?
