“I go home and I wash my face and I put on my sweatpants and I lay down on the bed and I say, ‘oh, please rub my feet,’ and you know, he says, ‘no, you rub my feet.’ So, you know, behind the curtain, I’m just like everybody else. … I didn’t choose to, you know, I didn’t, like, write down on a piece of paper I’m now going to have a relationship with a younger man. That’s just what happened. You see, that’s the romantic in me. I just met someone that I cared for, and this happened to be his age.”

Well, I can’t get behind Madonna being “just like everybody else.” Girl, please, you are an icon. But it’s good to know that Madonna has to sweet talk her boyfriend, Brahim Zaibat, into rubbing her feet just like the rest of us. I have to say it’s cool that she’s not just able to boss him around. Props to her 24-year-old boo for saying, “No, you rub my feet.” Of course, if Madonna told me to rub her feet, I would just shut up and do it.  [ONTD

“Jerry Lewis once said that he didn’t think women were funny, so I’d just like to say, with all respect, ‘F*ck you!’”

– Judd Apatow accepted the Critics’ Choice Aware for Best Comedy film on behalf of “Bridesmaids” and gave comedian Jerry Lewis a long-overdue middle finger for a sexist comment made in 1998. While speaking to an audience at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, Lewis said ”I don’t like any women comedians” and “A woman doing comedy doesn’t offend me but sets me back a bit. I, as a viewer, have trouble with it. I think of her as a producing machine that brings babies in the world.” (Not surprisingly, Jerry Lewis is the same guy who said he wanted to “smack [Lindsay Lohan] in the mouth” and “give her a spanking.” What a charmer.) Be quiet and listen to Judd Apatow, Jerry. [Huffington Post]

Today’s Lady News: Male Reporters Dominate Campaign Trail Coverage

  • Reporters on the campaign trail are skewing heavily male, according to an examination by the Columbia Journalism Review. According to NYU journalism professor Meryl Gordon, politics reporters at newspapers, glossy magazines and blogs are mostly men, and when there are women, there is usually only one or two. This, of course, is echoed in coverage on the campaign trail. [Columbia Journalism Review]
  • Props to Jessica Ahlquist, 16, of Rhode Island, who successfully won a legal battle over a religious prayer banner which was hung in the Cranston High School West auditorium. Jessica contacted the Rhode Island chapter of the ACLU last year, which brought the case to a federal judge. Yesterday, the judge ruled that the prayer banner in a public school was indeed in violation and must immediately be removed. [Boston.com]

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund, is either the world’s worst liar or the world’s biggest egotist.

He’s the world’s worst liar if he thinks anyone will believe he didn’t know his ladyfriends at French sex parties (aka orgies) were not being paid for their, um, services. And he’s the world’s biggest egotist if he was genuinely unaware that these women were prostitutes (say, if the women had been hired by an employee) and thought they were all just fielding cumshots as they lay in awe of his awesome sexual prowess.
