Madonna Speaks Out For Pussy Riot

Last night at her concert in Moscow, Madonna appealed for the release of Pussy Riot, a feminist punk band which has been jailed for five months after speaking out publicly against President Vladimir Putin. This video sent chills up and down my arms as Madonna spoke about censorship, democracy and freedom. What an incredible reminder not to take our freedom of speech for granted.

The three women were charged with hooliganism for performing a “punk prayer” at a Moscow church and praying for Putin to be removed from the presidency. During their five months of imprisonment, the women say they’ve been mistreated in jail. Their trial began on Monday and the women have said their judge is biased against them. I’ve been writing about Pussy Riot daily in Today’s Lady News, but Mother Jones has a good recap here. [YouTube]

High School Moms
"High School Moms"
  • Yes, yes, this is something the universe needs: “High School Moms,” a TLC reality show about pregnant teens. The teens attend Florence Crittenton High School in Denver, Colorado. And this will be different from “16 & Pregnant” … how?  [ONTD]
  • Lady Gaga has tapped Lindsay Lohan for a music video off her upcoming album. I never thought in a million years would have thought Gaga would adopt LiLo as a pet project, but you know what? She could be a good influence. [New York Post]
  • “X-Files” star Gillian Anderson and her longtime partner Mark Griffiths have broken up. She’s back on the market, ladies and gentlemen. [People]
  • Remember when I said yesterday Robert Pattinson was going on “Good Morning America”? Well, it turns out he will actually make his first public appearance since the cheating scandal on “The Daily Show.” [US Weekly]

Hillary Don't Hurt 'Em!

I am easily susceptible to secondhand embarrassment. I watch many reality TV shows from behind my hands or a pillow and visibly cringe when someone who is old enough to be my parent uses current slang. So maybe it’s just me being sensitive, but this video of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton getting freaked by a singer/dancer at a dinner party in South Africa was embarrassing in a way I haven’t felt since walking in on my parents having sex in 1992. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating. But still, when the dancer drops her butt low and backs it up into Hillary? Cannot be unseen. (Plus, now in GIF form after the jump!) Keep reading »

Bachelor Pad Recap: Ed And Jaclyn's drunken hookup

Lots of spoilers alert. There are so many things we could talk about from last night’s episode of “Bachelor Pad.” Um, the “Hot Sludge Funday” complete with a “nut sack” and a cherry on top? Who thinks up these challenges and may I offer my services? Maybe a penis car wash would be fun? Or we could focus on Jamie’s complete emotional meltdown at the prom (we’ve all been there) and subsequent throwing of herself at Chris. “I just want to fall in love on TV and show my kids,” she gushed. We haven’t all been there. Jamie has officially succeeded in making me forget about that time on “The Bachelor” when she straddled Ben Flajnik and tried to kiss him. ‘Member that? Or how about that drunken Ed/ Jaclyn hookup. Where is it? I don’t have any underwear on. I see it. What are you going to do with it? Ed singing. What is your name again? You can watch their super-romantic hookup above. Jillian Harris must be saying a prayer of thanks at this moment. Keep reading »

Olympics 2012: The Best Photos From The Women’s Gymnastics’ Floor & Beam Finals!

Sadly — well, for me at least, because I love it – today was the last day of gymnastics events at the 2012 Olympics in London. In addition to the men’s parallel bars final, the women competed in the finals for floor and beam; all three events will air tonight in the U.S. but if you just can’t wait until then, we have a whole mess of awesome photos from the women’s events. But be warned: we will reveal at least some of the winners on the final slide of the post!

"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" -- The Extended Trailer!

I’ve  seen every incarnation of the “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” trailer, as I’m eagerly awaiting the forthcoming TLC show (premiering tomorrow night!), which features Alana from “Toddlers & Tiaras” and her clan. I’ve accepted her family’s nicknames (Sugar Bear’s not such a bad thing to be called), pondered the purpose of tummy jiggling (it’s fun!) and tried to understand how mud pit diving works (kind of like swimming?).  But now that the extended one minute and three second trailer for the show is out, I have some serious questions about the Boo Boos (whatever the family’s real last name is, I am choosing to refer to them as the Boo Boos). Please help me understand the following: Keep reading »
