That photo up there is from TMZ, who were there to capture the moment that woman served RedFoo with a 7 million dollar lawsuit. The band’s former management company are suing LMFAO for breach of contract, basically being all ‘y’all are famous ‘coz of us, we did all this and then you ditched us WTF?!’
I love this photo. Partially because I think RedFoo is sexy, and partially because it’s always refreshing to see photos of celebrities who haven’t been beaten down by fame and are all pissy anytime there’s paparazzi around. The whole reason I like LMFAO is because they’re fun, and they crack me up, and this is just an extension of that, because I can tell you right now there wouldn’t be enough swear words in the world if there were paparazzi around when I just found out I was being sued for 7 million. I would legitimately have a Mel Gibson, cavewoman style, screamfest.
My favourite part is when she says ‘she smoked that cigarette before I did that video, so, she didn’t get that from me.’ That’s pretty much what this rant is going to be about.
Okay, I get that she doesn’t smoke in real life, and I believe that she doesn’t approve of it, but there was something about her whole ‘oh, well, I have no responsibility in this, Lourdes does what she wants and I certainly haven’t played any role in making smoking look cool for years and years and years’ attitude that just kind of… irked me.
Honestly, smoking doesn’t bother me, people can do what they want. But Madonna’s so full of shit. I love her, and she’s a fierce bitch, but seriously.
Okay. Firstly, the new video is clearly not the first time Madonna’s used a cigarette as ‘an accessory’, so the whole ‘she did it before I did!’ thing is actually absurd. Look at all those photos up there. That’s a minute of Googling ‘Madonna smoking,’ and I’m sure if I knew Madonna’s career as well as some of my other pop tarts I’d find a shitload more.
Second, isn’t the whole point of an accessory to make your whole outfit, your whole ‘thing’, your look, cooler? So by saying that it’s an accessory, isn’t Madonna actually saying ‘I’m using it to look cool?’ and if that’s the case, then isn’t Lourdes doing just that?
I understand that Madonna must have a lot of trouble separating her career from her personal life, because the things that she does on stage or in videos aren’t necessarily things she wants her fifteen year old daughter to be doing. But I also feel like when Madonna, or any pop star, does something controversial, they always whip out the ‘well I never intended to be a role model, I’m an artist and it’s not my job to raise your kids, you need to be at home talking to them’ speech that I’ve heard from literally all my faves because I love the pop artists who get slutty with it. But Madonna can’t pull that shit when the kid in question is her own.
I’m not saying it’s a cut and dry, cause and effect type thing, where Madonna makes smoking look cool so now Lourdes is smoking. It’s not. But to essentially shaft all responsibility for the decisions your fifteen year old daughter makes regarding something that you yourself have used in your career multiple times… well… she’s right, she does need to be tougher, but she needs to be tougher on herself before she’s tougher on Lourdes.
Amanda Bynes… Where to start? Well, she’s pissed off that people are calling her the new Lindsay Lohan. This is what RadarOnline posted about it:
“Amanda thinks its extremely unfair that people are calling her the new Lindsay Lohan,” a source close to the actress tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. “Comparisons between the two are just ridiculous as Amanda has never been arrested for drug possession or for stealing anything. Yes, she got arrested for a DUI, but that doesn’t mean that she is headed down the same road as Lindsay. Amanda doesn’t harbor any negative feelings towards Lindsay, she doesn’t even know her, she just thinks it’s sexist that the two are being compared. Men in Hollywood that get arrested for DUI’s don’t face the same scrutiny that women do and that is what really irks Amanda. She isn’t taking the DUI arrest lightly.
Let’s break this down, yeah? First up, it’s not ‘unfair’ to compare actresses who are the same age who peaked, career wise, around the same time. It’s practical.
To say that it’s sexist is ridiculous. I don’t know about you, but I actually can’t think of any Hollywood guys who’ve been arrested for DUI lately. That’s probably why those comparisons aren’t made. I mean, when I think ‘trainwreck male celebrities’ Robert Downey Jr and Pete Doherty come to mind. Since Bob’s clean and Pete’s not exactly relevant to the pop world since he and Kate Moss broke up, they’re not exactly current references. Meanwhile, Lindsay’s DUI, although from 2007, is still relevant, since she only just completed her community service for it, like, two seconds ago.
Also, I’m just going to throw it out there that this is exactly the kind of shit that LiLo used to pull all the goddamn time. I lost count of the number of times I heard Lindsay say things about how the media blows everything out of proportion, and that she was taking everything seriously, and ‘done with partying’ and ‘focusing on her career.’ But at the end of the day, she’d still be pouring herself out of the club onto the sidewalk in the wee hours of the morning. This is the part where I’ll throw in that Amanda got refused entry from the very club she chose to drive home from shitfaced when she got arrested, mere days after making bail. And that, my friends, is what makes Amanda the new Lindsay Lohan.
So you remember how last week… or maybe earlier this week? I can’t remember… but recently, that guy who wrote the script for the ‘Jewish Braveheart’ The Maccabees wrote Mel a 9 page letter telling him about all the crazy shit he does and then basically leaked it to the press? Click here to get caught up if you don’t remember.
It’s basically just him screaming ‘FUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCKKKKKKKK!’ over and over again, but he legitimately sounds so off the rails crazy angry that it’s like… I don’t even know. He sounds like a caveman, or something. Just listen to it, yeah? That’s all for now, but I’m sure if there are more recordings TMZ will find a way to get ahold of them. Stay tuned…
I like Nicki Minaj but this is some diiiiiiiiiiivuh shit right here.
Basically, she got into some drama with fan site Nicki Daily, who were allegedly leaking her songs… except apparently they only posted the snippets that were already available to listen to on iTunes. Okay… So anyway, Nicki Daily deleted their Twitter, and not being satisfied with that, Nicki posted:
Like seriously, its but so much a person can take. Good fucking bye. [sic]
And deleted her Twitter as well. Nicki Daily shut down their website, but still has ‘Dear Old Nicki’ playing.
These two gifs sum up how I feel about this:
Oh, she’s also releasing a fragrance soon, and although it doesn’t seem to exist or have a name yet, this is what she has to say about it:
I have always been a huge fan of great fragrances. This is yet another extension of my creative expression and I can’t wait to share it with the world. I designed this scent and bottle with my Barbz in mind; I know they will love it!
I bet she comes rushing back to Twitter as soon as she has to promote the thing.
Well… the entire story is pretty much up there in the title, so I don’t really have a whole lot else to add. Stephen Moyer has two other kids, but it’s Anna Paquin’s first. There’s no word on whether they’re going to write the pregnancy into True Blood, or how if it will affect filming at all.
Melissa Joan Hart is also expecting her third child with her husband Mark Wilkerson. He’s from some band called Course of Nature. I probably could’ve posted the photo she put on her Twitter that shows her bump… but I like Salem the cat more than I like family snaps.
This was going to start out as a top five list but then I ended up with a list of thirteen, so we’ll all just have to deal with that. Also, these aren’t necessarily current friendships, but rather, ones that I’ve been totally on board with at some point. This is probably going to end up being a long one, so get comfy. Maybe go get yourself a coffee, or a snack, or something. Go on, I’ll wait.
Okay, here we go:
13) Paris and Nicole. Besties from birth until (allegedly) Nicole showed Paris’ sex tape at an event in her honour. Although they reconciled and filmed the final season of The Simple Life together, they were never BFF’s again, and Nicole didn’t invite Paris to her wedding to Joel Madden. That being said, they dominated reality tv with their friendship for years, so they’re still one of my faves.
Rumours aside, I personally like to imagine that this is how their fallout went down:
Even though they’re not close anymore, they greeted each other with a hug at some event Sam Ronson held last year:
12) Christina Ricci and Gaby Hoffmann. Basically, these two make the cut because Now & Then is one of my favourite movies of all time and the idea that Roberta and Samantha are BFF’s in real life makes me so happy I might start crying because I get overwhelmed by nostalgia far too easily.
While we’re talking about Now & Then, let’s also take a moment to mention Ashleigh Aston Moore, who played Chrissy, and died of a heroin overdose in 2007.
11) Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato. Besties since they were seven, I thought that they’d drifted apart because I’d read somewhere that Selena had become close with Taylor Swift, and then Demi went into rehab, and I hadn’t seen any photos of them together in forever, but they’re still tight.
Seventeen magazine held a luncheon to celebrate Demi’s cover, and although Selena couldn’t be there, she wrote this open letter to be read out at the event:
Demi, first I want to say that I am sorry that I can’t be here with you today, but I just want to say first how proud I am of you. Knowing you since we were seven and watching you become the person you are is truly amazing.
I was there when you sang in front of 10 people knowing all of the words to your songs and I was there when you sang in front of 14,000 people, still knowing all of your songs. You have something that you know has been hard for me to have at times. You have courage — courage to want to change to be better for yourself.
The amount of respect that I have for you is indescribable. You have gone through one of the hardest chapters in your life and I praise you for wanting to share that journey and walk away from it all as a better person. Thank you for trusting me and wanting me there during that hard time. I hope you know how much I love you and how proud I am of the role model that you have become.
10) George Clooney and Brad Pitt. What can you even say about these two? It’s a celebrity power friendship at its best, and they look sexy doing it, so I don’t see a problem with it.
Here’s a fanmade video of pictures of them together:
Because why the fuck not?
George said this about Brad recently:
Brad is one of the great guys. We’re good friends, but it’s different from what people think, meaning we don’t spend a lot of time together. He has been to my home in Como; we motorcycle together. But until recently, I hadn’t seen Brad in a year.
09) Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. These two are on my list because they’ve been friends for years, they were young Hollywood royalty in the 90’s, and because I love Kevin Smith films.
07) Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire. They’ve been friends since they were young and grew up in Hollywood together, often auditioning for the same roles. Tobey has a cameo (read ‘he was an extra’) in The Basketball Diaries, they were in Don’s Plum together, and then later sued the distribution company together because they didn’t want it to be released, and they’ll be in The Great Gatsby together soon. Look at these photos, they’re too cute.
Tobey has said this about Leo:
He is my best friend and a wonderful uncle to the kids. It is great to share that with him. Leo always accompanied me, once I married, once I became a father. Through that our friendship has become more intense.
I couldn’t find a video of either one of them talking about the other, so instead, here’s a 40 second video of them trying to talk their way into a fight in Vegas. It’s worth it to see Leo giggle like a schoolgirl on the phone.
06) Macaulay Culkin and Seth Green (and Mila Kunis). I love these two, and I love Mila Kunis. She’s in there because while she was with Mac (we’re close.) these guys were like a little posse of cool. Seth and Macaulay worked on Party Monster together, and Macaulay is regularly on Robot Chicken. Seth also guest starred in That 70’s Show, and Seth and Mila are obviously both on Family Guy.
As a side note to this, I’m fairly sure Seth Green stole that jacket from the Buffy set, because I’ve definitely seen Oz wear it.
05) Rihanna and Katy Perry. These two are only this high up the list because they call each other ‘bear cunt’ on Twitter. Seriously. That’s pretty much it. Oh, and I love Rihanna. I can only assume that the Katy that RiRi is referring to in her song ‘Stupid in Love’ about her break up from Breezy is Katy Perry. Something about how she goes back to him ‘even though Katy told me that this would be nothing but a waste of time, and she was right.’
The Biebs has nothing to do with this story, but it’s a cute pic.
Apparently they’re going to do a collaboration at some point, but I feel like I’ve been hearing that forever. That being said, I’m sure if they do that it’ll be a huge smash hit.
04) Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. What can I say? I just love these two. I love Parks & Rec, I love 30 Rock, I love Mean Girls. I didn’t love Baby Mama… but it was okay.
I also love Will Arenett.
Even though I didn’t love Baby Mama, I hope they work together again in the future.
03) Michelle Williams and Busy Phillips. Michelle Williams and I are tight for two reasons, the first being that she’s in another one of my all time favourite films, Dick, with Kirsten Dunst, and the other being that Jen is clearly the best one in Dawson’s Creek. Busy Phillips and I are cool because she’s a part of a batshit Hollywood family, which I really get into, and because I liked her in this movie I saw her in years ago called Home Room, she was fun on Dawson’s Creek, Freaks and Geeks, and I love her in Cougar Town. Yes. I watch Cougar Town. I won’t apologise for it, it’s funnier than the title would have you believe. Anyway, I love these two. I love that Michelle takes Busy everywhere with her, and I love that Busy instagrammed a photo of them at the Oscars from their seats:
02) Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston. They’ve been besties since 1994, what else can you say? They’re inseparable. Jen is godmother to Coco, Courteney’s daughter, and although their have been rumours that they’ve drifted apart since Jen got together with Justin Theroux, I feel like after close to two decades of friendship they’re not going anywhere.
And now, for number one. You can probably guess it if you know me, but whatever. It’s…
So it’s finally happened. These two are engaged to be married. Forgive me if I don’t sound ecstatic, it’s only because they’re so full of shit that it makes me want to puke.
Brad’s publicist confirmed it, saying that ‘the kids are very happy’. Oh, right… because that’s the only reason you’re getting married, I remember, because instead of telling the truth, which is ‘we got sick of waiting for gay marriage to be legalised everywhere,’ you played the ‘it means soooooo much to our kids that we get married,’ card. So when you say ‘the kids are very happy,’ what you actually mean is ‘YOU CAN’T BE MAD AT US FOR BACKTRACKING BECAUSE WE’RE DOING IT FOR OUR KIDS!!!’ Right.
I actually meant to post this yesterday, but then instead I spent the entire day lurking this tumblr about Titanic, and saving gifs of Leo onto my computer. This is where I’d put ‘I wish I was kidding’, but I genuinely feel like it was a day well spent. I mean, look at this gif:
I could actually just look at that all day long. It’s from this deleted scene, and you should watch it because it’ll make you pregnant:
Um… yeah. We should move on here because I have about 900 more things to say about Leonardo DiCaprio and how much I love him, but that’s not why we’re here. Oh! But I will add real quick, on the subject of Titanic, that I’m following @TitanicRealTime, which is The History Press’ ‘live account’ of the entire journey of the real ship, and shit’s about to get fucked up, but it’s really interesting so you should follow it if you’re a big Titanic nerd like I am.
So Courtney Love. She’s crazy, and shit. Now, I’m not following Courtney Love’s private Twitter because, well, it’s private and I can’t see it. The good people over at Gawker, however, are, and they managed to screencap her latest Twitter tirade, against Dave Grohl (who’s also batshit insane, but we’ll save that for another day because if we’re going to get sidetracked again it’s going to be for Leo, again.). They didn’t, however, make the tirade a file that I could save you time by posting here, so you can click here to head on over there and read the entire, insane thing for yourself. My favourite part is that the Dave she’s tweeting to isn’t even the Foo Fighters’ Dave, but rather, a German IT guy who hasn’t tweeted since 2008. Good work, Courts.
Poor Frances. The girl can’t catch a break. If you want more details of all the shit Courtney’s done to her in the past, you can click right here.
This is her statement on the whole thing:
While I’m generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn. I have never been approached by Dave Grohl in more than a platonic way.
I’m in a monogamous relationship and very happy. Twitter should ban my mother.
The fact that she puts ‘biological mother’ says a whole lot about the state their relationship is in, in my mind, anyway.
This is what Dave had to say:
Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue.
And that’s about it. Pretty stock standard Courtney Love crazy. Now scroll back up and look at Leo and Kate make out again. That’s what I’m going to do.
‘I’m going to fuck you in the ass and stab you to death while I’m doing it.’
I didn’t really know where to begin, so I thought I’d open with the part that reminded me of that line in Scream 4 where Ghostface tells Sidney that he’s going to slit her eyelids open so she can’t blink when he stabs her in the face.
Basically, the guy who was working with Mel Gibson on ‘the Jewish Braveheart’ The Maccabees, Joe Eszterhas, sent Mel a 9 page letter with some insane anecdotes from Mel’s private life. I’m going to post the whole letter at the bottom, but the “highlights” are as follows:
On John Lennon:
I’m glad he’s dead. He deserved to be shot. He was f**king messianic. Listen to his songs! Imagine. I hate that f**king song. I’m glad he’s dead.
On Ari Emanuel, the head of the William Morris Endeavor Agency:
He’s a c*nt Jewboy.
There’s also a whoooooooooole lot of other stuff about Jews, and Eszterhas says that Mel ‘shares the mindset of Adolf Hitler.’
Now, let’s take a moment to reflect on the fact that this is a nine page letter, to Mel Gibson, and the vast majority of it is Eszterhas telling Mel about stuff that Mel allegedly did. Add that to the fact that this letter was leaked to The Wrap, and that the PS says the following:
I’ve sent this letter to no one else except Nick Guerra, your assistant, per his previous instructions that I send him whatever I send to you so he can make sure you’ve received it. I believe I deserve a reply from you.
If Mel’s the only intended reader, you probably don’t need to put in a bunch of stuff that he’s done, because he’ll probably have enough memories of those nights to fill in the blanks. Combine that with the end, and it’s pretty clear that he sent the letter to The Wrap. He also says in the letter that he always said that if the Maccabees project wasn’t true to what he thought it should be, then he would take his name off it and tell the world why… looks like he did just that.
That being said… it’s believable. It’s not as though this is the first time we’ve heard of Mel Gibson being an insane, batshit lunatic.
Before I post the letter, here’s Mel’s response (so far):
I have your letter. I am not going to respond to it line by line, but I will say that the great majority of the facts as well as the statements and actions attributed to me in your letter are utter fabrications. I would have thought that a man of principle, as you purport to be, would have withdrawn from the project regardless of the money if you truly believed me to be the person you describe in your letter. I guess you only had a problem with me after Warner Brothers rejected your script.
I will acknowledge like most creative people I am passionate and intense. I was very frustrated that when you arrived at my home at the expense of both Warner Brothers and myself you hadn’t written a single word of a script or even an outline after 15 months of research, meetings, discussions and the outpouring of my heartfelt vision for this story. I did react more strongly than I should have. I promptly sent you a written apology, the colorful words of which you apparently now find offensive. Let me now clearly apologize to you and your family in the simplest of terms.
Contrary to your assertion that I was only developing Maccabees to burnish my tarnished reputation, I have been working on this project for over 10 years and it was publicly announced 8 years ago. I absolutely want to make this movie; it’s just that neither Warner Brothers nor I want to make this movie based on your script.
Honestly, Joe, not only was the script delivered later than you promised, both Warner Brothers and I were extraordinarily disappointed with the draft. In 25 years of script development I have never seen a more substandard first draft or a more significant waste of time. The decision not to proceed with you was based on the quality of your script, not on any other factor.
I think that we can agree that this should be our last communication.
