Remember last year when Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” compared homosexuality to bestiality and terrorism and the world was rightfully outraged? Now, his son Willie Robertson has spoken out about the fiasco to Larry King. Willie told King that he doesn’t agree with some of his father’s hateful words: “We love everybody… In this business, there are a lot of people who are gay.” Still, Willie says he is still undecided as to whether homosexuality is a choice. Ugh. This is a step up from his father’s closed-minded attitude, but seriously? [Mediaite]
“It took nine months to build. It should take nine months to get off. I wanted fettuccini alfredo. I didn’t want a barbell…I was like, ‘Don’t talk to me about how fast and fabulous you are or it came off. That was not my experience. I’m having to work my ass off until I even think about getting it off.”
Drew Barrymore gave birth to her second daughter in April, and as would be the case for any actress, most people seem more interested in the state of Barrymore’s dress size than the fact that she brought a new life into the world. She told People that she had better things to focus on this year than dieting (like, I don’t know, raising two young kids and nurturing a career at the same time) and is just now considering ramping up her fitness. I’m bummed that she actually had to justify this to a reporter and that it’s considered a novel, newsworthy response. I’m still holding out hope for some far-off day in which new mom’s bodies aren’t up for public debate. A girl can dream, right? [People]
Just when you thought there was no one more powerful in the free world than Beyoncé and Jay Z, some computer nerd comes along and is like SIKE!
According to TMZ, Swedish video game programmer Markus Persson dropped $70 million in CASH for a 23,000 square foot home in Beverly Hills that the power couple was hoping to buy. Bey and Jay allegedly visited the house a few times before placing an offer, but Markus, who sold his company Mojang to Microsoft for $2.5 billion, outbid them. Check out the gallery to see where Blue Ivy should have spent the next few years frolicking around, but instead will be full of middle-aged men playing Minecraft. [TMZ]
The finale of “The Colbert Report” aired last night, and it included a visit from a freakish number of celebrity guests to sing him a send-off song. That guy sure has a lot of friends! Stephen will take David Letterman’s place on the “Late Show” next year, but it’s still a bittersweet goodbye. There was nothing quite like ‘The Colbert Report,” and it’ll be missed! [Death + Taxes]
