Tabloid Cheat Sheet: Justin And Cameron Reuniting? Angelina Preggers?

It seems that with spring in the air, everyone is boarding the baby train, which I guess makes most people all weepy with joy. But over here at the Curmudgeon Club, we don’t advocate such horizontal hijinks and merry manhandling. Everyone needs to knock it off. I don’t want to read about how happy everyone is—the tabloid business is built on deception and dissing. It’s pure laziness to avoid one’s responsibility to the public. Thankfully, there’s still enough to go around. For now. And we’ve gathered it up in this handy guide to this week’s tabloid sacrifices. You’re welcome. Keep reading »

Artist Damien Hirst Shows Us Where Babies Come From

A new Damien Hirst installation opened at the Oceanic Museum of Monaco earlier this month, and it features this mannequin (with a bun in the oven) that greets ships from her spot on the pier. Keep reading for a view of her better side. [Highsnobiety] Keep reading »

Nudity And Sex In Art Still Cause A Stir

Even though artists have been paying homage to the human form since the beginning, nudity and sex in art still cause a major commotion. Two works of art — one newish and one really old — are getting a lot of attention lately and making some people a little uncomfortable.

On “The View,” Barbara Walters described her trip to see one of Marina Abramovic‘s performance art pieces at MoMA over the weekend. The gist of it is that two people, sometimes male, sometimes female, stand in the nude facing one another. Patrons can walk through the two individuals if they’d like, and Barbara described her trouble getting past them without touching something in the video above, acknowledging that one of the men was more endowed than the other.

Quotable: Madonna Not So Gleeful About The “Glee” Madonna Episode

Madonna doesn’t have a TV and has no idea what ‘Glee’ is. The show did ask her if she wanted to make an appearance in the much-hyped Madonna episode. She said ‘no thanks’ and, to be honest, she would rather they sing an Elton John song than butcher one of hers.”

—An anonymous “friend” of Madonna‘s, who says she is none-too-excited about next week’s Madge-themed episode of “Glee.” Supposedly, she’ll make a cool $100K in royalties from the episode, though. So, you know, Rocco’s allowance for the month. [PopEater] Keep reading »

On “Intervention,” A Young Woman Snorts Drugs With A Tampon Tube

I used to watch A&E’s addiction series, “Intervention,” religiously. After a while, though, I couldn’t take it anymore. I appreciate the struggles of addiction, but the stories are so often so heartbreaking. Watching people in the throes of intense addiction is agonizing. Every once in a while, though, I tune in again. This Monday, I watched an episode featuring Ashley, whose drug-addicted mother handed her over to her aunt and uncle when she was a child. She became addicted to black tar heroin and Xanax after her grandfather died. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the worst of it.

The iPad Brings “Alice In Wonderland” To Life


Like many others, I’ve read reviews of the iPad here and there, but if this isn’t the best motivator to buy one, I don’t know what is. Alice in Wonderland comes alive. Now that’s awesome. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Jane Lynch Vogues As “Glee”‘s Sue Sylvester


I must admit, I only watched my first episode of “Glee” last night and was totally amused. But after catching this preview clip from next week’s Madonna-themed episode, I might have to become a loyal viewer. Jane Lynch, who has wowed me in all the Christopher Guest movies and plays cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester on “Glee,” does “Vogue,” dare I say it, almost as entertainingly as Madge herself.

The Many Loves Of Oprah Winfrey

I’m sure the Big O has been bracing herself for the release of her unauthorized biography by Kitty Kelley due out today. Of course, a few people got their grubby paws on advanced copies, so the mudslinging and dirt-dishing got off to an early start. I’m thinking that Oprah must be outraged about the allegations in the book that her Aunt Katherine has accused her of lying about her sexual abuse. I’m not going to touch that one. But I will touch on the details of her relationship with John Tesh. According to the book, Tesh, pianist and former host of “Entertainment Tonight,” had a serious relationship with Oprah when they worked together in Nashville in her early 20s. They even lived together for a time before the pressures of an interracial relationship proved to be too much for him to handle and he bolted in the middle of the night. Uh oh, that’s not cute. [The Huffington Post, NY Daily News]

After the jump, some other dudes (and one lady) who we think may get a chapter in the book of O. Keep reading »
