Sarah Palin, the mother of the world’s most famous plastic surgery laden, reality show-starring teen mom, pitched a fit this week because First Lady Michelle Obama invited the hip hop artist/actor/poet, Common, to perform poetry at the White House.
See, some of Common’s lyrics are not as G-rated as everything the Palin family does, like killing animals, surgically altering their facial features “for medical reasons” and getting knocked up whilst still in high school. Keep reading »
“We dated, very casually. He’s a very sweet, nice guy … the complete antithesis of what you’d imagine. I was sampling, kind of, the atmosphere, seeing what was out there, and I was satiated… I don’t really like when men buy me ridiculous gifts, especially when I don’t know them well. I can buy my own gifts. I really don’t like gifts from rappers in general, since I’m not a hooker.”
—Chelsea Handler finally comes clean to Piers Morgan that she and 50 Cent did date for a little while. Apparently, Fiddy showered her in expensive gifts and she wasn’t so into that. So she called things off. [People]
Chelsea is now dating hotelier Andre Balazs. See what she has to say about him after the jump. Keep reading »
The world has gone Pippa Middleton crazy. Just as People splashed her on the cover along with the headline “Fun, flirty, and suddenly famous, the knockout sibling who stole the show,” the interwebs promised us topless photos of Pippa, this time sans bra. Here is the most scandalous of the new images, which show Pippa taking off her bikini top while on vacation in Ibiza. I don’t know. If this is the most scandalous image the paparazzi can get from a vacation to Ibiza, she may not be such a wild child after all. [Global Grind] Keep reading »
What will Oprah do with her days once her talk show ends? She divulged to The Chicago Tribune that, in addition to running her own network, she is planning to head to Broadway. As in, for real deal you’ll be able to see her on the stage soon. “I have a stack of plays in my bag right now that I am reading,” she said. “And just this past weekend, I was in New York meeting with producers. We were just talking about what would be the best route to take. But yes, this is really going to happen. ” Did you hear that? That was the sound of every high-powered theater producer in Manhattan scrambling to bow down at Oprah’s feet.
Acting is apparently high on the Big O’s to-do list. Keep reading »
“The coming out story is sort of corny to me. Now there’s all these rules like you can’t have gay villains in movies. I’m against all that. I’m for the rights of lesbians to be bad parents. I’m for not lowering any kind of standards because we’re gay. The gay Olympics is offensive to me. What are we, handicapped? I believe gay doesn’t make you better or worse. I know some gay a**holes and some of the smartest and nicest people I know are gay. … ["Glee" helped in that] people are certainly more used to it. It’s okay to be gay if you’re rich and in an upper class school. If you’re in the ghetto and gay it’s worse than it ever was. The main people who are fighting gay marriage are Hispanic and black churches, so if you really want to have a gay march go picket black churches. Now that’s a photo op from hell.”
—Geez, tell us what you really think, John Waters! I may not agree with all of John Waters’ opinions — blaming Hispanics and blacks for opposing same sex marriage is totally unfair. I know plenty of bigoted white people, too, John! But I also feel like when you’re a gay icon who made the most famous dog poop-eating cult film in history (“Pink Flamingoes,” rent it), it’s expected that you’ll be a little loopy. Such as, uh, being friends with a Manson girl. [PopEater] Keep reading »
