M.I.A. Rips Lady GaGa a New One in New Interview

Elisabeth Dickson :: Monday, July 26th, 2010 6:30 pm

It sounds like a joke your racist grandpa tells when he’s had a few too many glasses of ‘schewitz at your seder: what do a fundamentalist Baptist minister, a Jewish comedian from Queens, an androgynous Jamaican disco queen and a Sri Lankan pop star have in common? A: Apparently, all of these people despise Lady GaGa.

M.I.A. has joined the ranks of fellow haters Jerry Seinfeld, Grace Jones, and Fred Phelps by publicly slagging on Lady GaGa in a “Time Out” interview, claiming that the 24-year old singer’s journey to stardom “[wasn't] that difficult: to go from the fucking Upper East Side to a fucking performing arts school and on to a stage at the museum of fucking wherever? That journey’s about four miles.” MORE »

Mel Gibson Polling Higher As Oksana Grigorieva Backlash Begins

Elisabeth Dickson :: Thursday, July 22nd, 2010 3:45 pm

Oksana Grigorieva, Mel Gibson‘s ex-girlfriend and owner of the dubious distinction of being the first link that comes up when you Google “cunt bitch golddigger cunt whore,” is now being investigated by LAPD detectives for an attempted extortion plot, said a spokesperson Wednesday.

For many, the news of Grigorieva’s attempted extortion plot have turned the tables in Gibson’s favor. The accusations of blackmail against Grigorieva have led to a rush of support for the actor, with 63% of those polled in a CBS News survey believing that Gibson was “set up” and a slew of LA Times commenters referring to her as a Russian gold digger.” Cue the finger-pointing and victim-blaming: the backlash against Mel Gibson’s ex-girlfriend has officially begun.

Larry Hagman On LSD: ‘All Our Politicians Should Do It,’ Says ‘I Dream Of Jeannie’/'Dallas’ Actor (VIDEOS)

Travis Walter Donovan :: Tuesday, July 20th, 2010 7:00 pm

78-year-old actor Larry Hagman is on a roll lately.

He recently hit headlines for reprising his notorious oil baron character from the 80s show “Dallas,” J.R. Ewing, as a reformed energy pioneer eulogizing renewable resources with the mock-mantra, “Shine, Baby, Shine,” in a new commercial for SolarWorld. Now Hagman lights up CNN with laughter when he talks to Joy Behar about LSD, which he was first introduced to by folk-rock staple David Crosby of Crosby, Stills & Nash. MORE »

Justin Bieber Stays “Pure,” Honors Women: 5 Others Who Have Never Been Vajazzled

Elisabeth Dickson :: Friday, July 9th, 2010 3:30 pm

In an interview with E! yesterday, Patti Mallette, the mother of Canadian moppet Justin Bieber, disclosed that her son has yet to swipe his V-Card, thus eliminating the Biebs’ hard-earned street cred in one fell swoop. “He’s expressed his desire to stay pure and honor women and treat women with respect,” she said in last night’s E! special Justin Bieber: My World. “So hopefully it stays that way.” No mention was made if Bieber had expressed the desire to extend his respect to men as well, prompting E! News host Ryan Seacrest to wonder why Biebs won’t return his texts. MORE »

Landon Donovan Fathers Love Child: In Other Breaking News, Rich and Famous Professional Athletes Can’t Keep It In Their Pants

Elisabeth Dickson :: Monday, June 28th, 2010 4:30 pm

In the wake of the U.S. soccer team’s soul-crushing loss to Ghana this weekend, star forward Landon Donovan can console himself with the news that he may or may not be a baby daddy: a British woman has named Donovan as the father of her unborn child. Donovan, who has been separated from wife Bianca Kajilich since last July, would not confirm or deny siring the English fetus, saying in an interview with Sports Illustrated that “if I need to take responsibility, then I will provide the appropriate support.” MORE »

Let Me Taste Your Tears, Chris Brown. Oh, The Tears of Unfathomable Sadness: Chris Brown Breaks Down at BET Awards

Elisabeth Dickson :: Monday, June 28th, 2010 1:14 pm

After a flawlessly executed moonwalk, Chris Brown broke down during a Michael Jackson tribute medley at the BET Awards last night. Brown, who pled guilty last year to a 2009 felony assault charge on ex-girlfriend Rihanna, started convulsing into sobs during the opening bars of “Man in the Mirror,” prompting many viewers to wonder what Chris Brown’s tears taste like (my guess is top notes of Axe body spray followed by a savory hint of bullshit).

Courtney Love Goes “Behind the Music”

Danielle Johnsen :: Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010 1:29 pm

Love her or hate her, its pretty difficult not to be completely enthralled with Courtney Love — which is why Vh1 gave the rocker her own “Behind The Music“. The two-hour special premiered this past Monday, allowing us an inside look into glorious crazy that is Courtney. From Courtney’s early childhood, where she was abandoned by nearly every family member, to her search for success in Hollywood, it was riveting to see the usually eccentric Love being frank and openly discussing the dark periods of her life. Love described her inherent awareness that she would one day be famous, her quest to lead the biggest rock band and her tendency to self-sabotage. MORE »

XYV (Examine Your Vagina): An Open Letter to Miley Cyrus

Elisabeth Dickson :: Monday, June 21st, 2010 6:15 pm

I was recently hanging out with someone who asked me to explain why Miley Cyrus was listed as one of my favorite artists on Facebook. Because this happens to me more often than one might expect, I was adequately prepared to launch my standard Miley defense, which consists of the following points: MORE »

Bret Michaels and Miley Cyrus Are A Match Made in Blinged-Out Cowboy Hat Heaven

Elisabeth Dickson :: Thursday, June 17th, 2010 4:45 pm

Tomorrow morning, the hair extensions will flow freely and the spray tan fumes will linger in a studio midtown, where Bret Michaels and Miley Cyrus will perform a duet live on “Good Morning America”. Not since David Bowie and Bing Crosby gathered around a piano to belt out their cover of “Little Drummer Boy” has there been a pairing of such seemingly disparate entertainers, culminating in a showdown so epic that it will render news anchor Bianna Golodryga’s name un-ridiculous.

The New Single By The Situation, Entitled “The Situation,” Could Not Be Worse Than It Is

Amy Rose Spiegel :: Wednesday, June 16th, 2010 6:00 pm

Plus, it doesn’t sound a thing like him. I think it’s ghost-sung by someone else. I know you’re definitely curious to hear it, so listen to “The Situation” by Jersey Shore’s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino on Perez Hilton, where it made its exclusive world debut, which always indicates quality. Fucking gross, enjoy!

Gary Coleman 911 Call Released

Johnny Sanford :: Thursday, June 3rd, 2010 11:30 am

There’s a lurid aspect to celebrity deaths: the 911 call. This spring has already been the start of a monumental death march, with the loss of iconic Easy Rider Dennis Hopper (also had a great cameo on “Demon Days” as the narrator of the Gorillaz track “Fire Coming Out of the Monkey’s Head”), and the bite-sized actor/security guard Gary Coleman. In the latter case, the 911 call has been released in relation to his death, but the details are a bit fuzzy. “There’s blood everywhere!” his ex-wife Shannon Price screams to the operator, according to Associated Press.

Adam Ant Sent To Mental Hospital After Continued Insane Ant-ics

Amy Rose Spiegel :: Friday, May 21st, 2010 5:50 pm

500full-adam-antThe original dandy highwayman has been taken into custody at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital after the latest in weird offenses against public decency.  In the past, from what I can remember, he has gotten wasted and threatened people with a fake gun, broken into neighbor’s houses in the buff, and screamed a lot in public, in addition to making some music videos that aren’t exactly the picture of mental health.  Below, a step-by-step analysis of what went wrong in one of them.  This could have been prevented if we only looked at the warning signs, people!

Sir Ian McKellen Is Not A Hobo

Nick Nicoludis :: Thursday, May 13th, 2010 12:00 pm

Note: If you see a man dressed as a tramp/hobo circa the 1950′s, he’s probably not actually homeless. Lord Of The Rings star and knighted actor Sir Ian McKellen was mistakenly given pittance because of his disheveled look and soiled (looking) clothing. In reality, he was taking a “breather” whilst rehearsing Waiting For Godot in Melbourne Australia. I can see how the mistake was made. First, he was still wearing the costume for the play, which was a terribly dirty and torn suit (but is probably still worth more than my book colection). Second, he is really old (70 years), and most of the homeless people I encounter sitting on benches are as aged as he is. MORE »

Mariah Carey Got the Weirdest Anniversary Gift Ever

Amy Rose Spiegel :: Wednesday, May 12th, 2010 4:25 pm

Fuck.  This is a Ring Pop made out of white gold, white diamonds and pink sapphires, given from Nick Cannon to Mariah Carey.  How do people justify spending obscene amounts of money on shit like this?  More importantly, how are you supposed to coordinate this with the rest of your outfit?  I think I’d rather have a regular Ring Pop.  That way, you get two accessories for the price of one - the ring itself and the red lips/mouth that come with it - as well as some real candy, as opposed to something that would hurt if I tried to bite it.
