Quotable: Bret Easton Ellis Isn’t Down With Female Directors

“There’s something about the medium of film itself that I think requires the male gaze. We’re watching, and we’re aroused by looking, whereas I don’t think women respond that way to films, just because of how they’re built. … Is there a reason that there isn’t a female Hitchcock or a female Scorsese or a female Spielberg? I don’t know. I think it’s a medium that really is built for the male gaze and for a male sensibility. I mean, the best art is made under not an indifference to, but a neutrality [toward] the kind of emotionalism that I think can be a trap for women directors.”

—Bret Easton Ellis, the author of American Psycho, losing a little respect as he argues that women don’t make great film directors. Hey, you did get the memo about Kathryn Bigelow, right? [Newser] Keep reading »

All along I’ve been rooting for Mamasox, but on Tuesday night Lee changed my mind. After the jump, why I think he’s going to take the title. Keep reading »

Neil Patrick Harris And Matthew Morrison Dream On

One more silver lining to the end of “Lost”? We’ll no longer be plagued by the internal debate about which to watch in real time—”Lost” or “Glee.” Because you were no doubt curious to see which candidate is taking over for Jacob in the last regular episode of the former, you probably missed last night’s amazing “Glee” episode, which featured Neil Patrick Harris along with Idina Menzel. Never fear. Here is the highlight—Neil and Matthew Morrison’s “Dream On” duet. You are welcome. Keep reading »

Tinie Tempah’s “Frisky” Is The Frisky Anthem

OK, Tinie Tempah’s “Frisky” isn’t the official anthem for The Frisky, but it does say the word “frisky” in it. I’d never heard of Mr. Tempah until today, but apparently he’s a London-born and based rapper and MC whose first big hit was called “Wifey.” He’s also released a series of mixtapes with interesting titles: Hood Economics Room 147: The 80 Minute Course and Sexy Beast: Volume 1. “Frisky” is his second single. It follows on the heels of “Pass Out.” I’m sensing a theme here. Wikipedia describes the “Frisky” track as “Electro-grime, hip hop, drum and bass, dubstep,” but it sounds mostly like your average (or, well, honestly, sub-par) pop-rap to me. Also, they should say “frisky” more. [Vimeo] Keep reading »

Tabloid Cheat Sheet: Kristen And Robert Engaged? Oprah Evil?

Another Wednesday, another sex scandal. You’d think that celebrity men would quit sleeping with call-girls since selling their stories to the tabloids is obviously more lucrative than spending an hour with them. But it’s not sad sack time in Tabloid Town—there are also plenty of new babies to ogle and a few marriages that have yet to be tarnished. Equally important, you’re almost half-way through your work week! Woohoo! And as a reward, we’ve rounded up the best tabloid stories just for you. Keep reading »

James Cameron Sued By Unpublished Sci-Fi Romance Author

Avatar” was a mega-money maker for all involved, but author Kelly Van seems to think she was left out of the pay day to the tune of a quarter of a million dollars. Why? She claims that James Cameron stole ideas from her unpublished sci-fi romance novel, Sheila the Warrior: the Damned. She’s filed a copyright lawsuit against the filmmaker, stating that the characters, setting, plot, sound, visual effects, and total concept of “Avatar” are similar to her book which is about people from Earth who travel to another planet called “Tibet.” I wonder how she came up with that name? Very creative. Keep reading »

All Up In The Upfronts: Why We Can’t Wait For “Hellcats”

In the upfront-iverse, this morning was CBS’s turn to unveil their fall lineup. But because I’m feeling a smidge uninspired by it (sitcom, sitcom, police show, “Hawaii Five-O”), I’m moving on to an offering from The CW that is going to be pure genius. “Hellcats” is a series about a competitive college cheerleading squad starring Ashley Tisdale of “High School Musical” and Aly Michalka of 78violet (aka Aly & AJ). The show is created by Kevin Murphy (“Desperate Housewives,” “Caprica”) and is executive-produced by AJ Marcantonio and Tom Welling, who you more likely know as Clark Kent on “Smallville.” I will confess to being completely and totally biased when it comes to this show. See, “Hellcats” is inspired by my book, CHEER!: Inside The Secret World Of College Cheerleaders, which follows three highly ranked cheerleading squads through their intense 2006/7 seasons.

Jenny Loses Her Virginity On “Gossip Girl” And, Of Course, It’s A Disaster

There I was, minding my own business on Monday night, when I noticed “Jenny Humphrey” from “Gossip Girl” became a trending topic on Twitter, i.e., something everyone is tweeting about. Jenny Humphrey, of course, is the precocious 16-year-old budding fashion designer from Brooklyn, played by Taylor Momsen. With her older brother, Dan, young Jenny attends a fancy Upper East Side prep school; she just wants to be accepted by the rich kids, who dismiss her as a social climber. I clicked on the trending topic and saw hundreds of tweets saying things like, “Jenny Humphrey is a ho!” and “I hate Jenny Humphrey, she’s such a skank!”

Clearly, this involved further investigation. Keep reading »
