Top 10 Reasons The Gaga-Kanye Tour Was Canceled

Live Nation has confirmed rumors that the Lady Gaga-Kanye West tour, “Fame Kills,” has been officially canceled. Gossip blog MediaTakeOut is reporting the decision was all Gaga — a probable fall-out from Kanye’s much-publicized VMA meltdown (though she was defending him as recently as a couple days ago). I’m not so sure, though — I can think of 10 other reasons these two would cancel a concert together… Keep reading »

Ryan Reynolds And Lady Gaga Do “SNL” This Weekend

Let’s talk about how mother-effing excited I am for this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live.” Yes, last week’s season premiere totally blew, but tomorrow night, Mr. Scarlett Johansson, aka my second favorite Ryan in Hollywood — Ryan Reynolds — is hosting, with musical guest, Lady Gaga. This shiz is gonna be hot. Promo above. Keep reading »

David Letterman Bangs Female Staffers, Gets Blackmailed

What does a late-night talk show host do to top guest appearances by President Obama on one night, Bill Clinton the next night, and Madonna the following week? Well, if you’re David Letterman, you go on air and admit to having sex with your employees. The confession came last night when Letterman announced he’d been the victim of a $2 million extortion plot to expose sexual relations he’s had with female staffers. He first learned of the plot three weeks ago when he found a package in the backseat of his car one morning on his way to work. The package included “proof” of “terrible things” Letterman has done and a blackmail letter explaining a plan to write a screenplay about Letterman and his affairs unless he forks over $2 million. Letterman called the cops, they caught the guy with a fake check, and Dave testified this week in before a grand jury. His response to the claim that he’s banged female staffers? “My response to that is, yes I have. I have had sex with women who work on this show. Would it be embarrassing if it were made public? Perhaps it would, perhaps it would. Especially for the women.” He then says he wants to protect these people, his family, and hopefully his job. It’s just a hunch here, but I’d say his job is pretty safe. Clip above. Keep reading »

Glamour Magazine Promises To Change Their Skinny Ways


Remember when plus-size model Lizzie Miller appeared in Glamour magazine’s September issue and caused a s**t storm of comments and letters and the general outcry of ladymag purveyors saying “Yes! Thank you! Finally!”? We also knew the magazine was planning on shooting a spread of Miller alongside other curvy ladies, including one of our heroines, Crystal Renn, and subscribers got the issue today! (Amelia reports that the photos are really, really pretty.) The crew guested on “Ellen” today and editor-in-chief Cindi Leive announced the magazine is making a commitment to showing more diversity (both in terms of size and ethnicity) in their glossy pages going forward. Only time will tell, but it’s a big step in the right direction, no? And with all the attention the mag is getting, look out for others to jump in on the action. As Cindi observes, ultimately, the fashion industry is about sales. So are magazines. Fine. If money (and people) talking is what it takes to make editors accept that women are sick of size-zero glorification, well, we’ll take it. [Ellen] Keep reading »

We See Chick Flicks: “Whip It”

Starring Ellen Page, Alia Shawkat, and Kristen Wiig
Directed by Drew Barrymore
Written by Shauna Cross

You know that Hulu commercial with Alec Baldwin where he’s an alien turning our brains to soft, goopy edible mush through the power of television on the internet? Somewhere there is a boardroom full of old men (or aliens) twirling waxed black mustaches and guffawing over the latest sales figures of the newest insipid feel-good rom-com. Well, hang onto your helmets and strap on your skates ladies, because “Whip It” is not that movie. Keep reading »

James Franco Is Checking Into “General Hospital”

Here’s some WTF news: James Franco has signed on for a role on “General Hospital,” which will have him hanging in Port Charles for two months. According to Soapnet, “He’ll be playing a mysterious character who will … make Jason’s life a living hell.” Jason is a mobster who was once a prepster who went bad after a head injury. I stopped watching “General Hospital” after Carly 2.0 left and the rest of the cool characters turned into pansies, but I might have to start DVRing this s**t, just to see Franco have deep conversations by the dock, make sweet SFW love under strategically draped sheets, and do that awesome delayed-look-into-the-camera acting technique.

Madonna Has A Pizza Date With Letterman

Madonna made her eighth visit to “Letterman” last night, arriving through the door of The Ed Sullivan Theater carried by a slew of handsome hockey players. “It’s the one sport I haven’t explored,” Madonna later quipped — a reference to her well-documented dating history with a variety of sports stars. Letterman asked about her recent divorce and she joked that her marriage lasted through the “Bush years,” when it was a “good time to be out of America” and that she’d rather “get run over by a train” than ever marry again. They ended the interview with Madonna’s first slice of NY pizza, which she probably spit into her napkin when the cameras stopped rolling. After all, she doesn’t like cheese on her pie. Clip above.

“Mad Men” Gets A Sesame Street Send-Up

Those wacky Muppet operators over at “Sesame Street” have created a wonderful send-up of “Mad Men.” In it, puppets Don Draper and Co. at Sterling Cooper learn how to be … happy! Who would have thunk it? I love the idea of Draper the cad going to teach the little kiddies that what’s important in life is not being a mad ad man, but finding happiness through honey advertising. It would have been awesome if Kermit played Don and Miss Piggy played Betty, but maybe they’re saving that for “The Muppets Take Mad Men.” [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
