I have a confession to make: I have a Chris Isaak problem. Yes, I know that he’s 53 and actually kind of a doofus, as evidenced by the clip above. But for some reason, I will never be able to get the image out of my head of him rolling around in the sand with Helena Christensen in the “Wicked Game” video. Oh, and did I mention his sexy young-Elvis snarl? As a result of the aforementioned two things, I have bought many a Chris Isaak album. (Yes, including his Christmas album. Yes, I am Jewish.) So I was pretty pumped when I saw that he was co-hosting CNN.com’s “Music and Conversation” webisode this week. Check it out here
. He gets less doofy, I promise.

I know what you’re thinking: there’s nothing funny about about abortion! Mostly, I agree with you. Politicians who make decisions about what women can do with their bodies and wackjobs who try to kill abortion providers are scary.
A very not safe for work clip of Chris Rock on abortion, and further unpacking the notion that there is something funny about abortion, after the jump:

The Degrassi hotties huddled together at the red carpet premiere of their new flick, “Paradise City: Degrassi Goes Hollywood.” Fingers crossed the movie is as action packed with pubescent problems as the tv show. But whatever it takes, I know I can make it through! [Toronto, 8/26/09] Keep reading »
Here’s a nonsensical one for you. On Tuesday, three women were supposedly bounced from a Britney Spears concert for … wait for it … dancing “too provocatively.” The girls say they were ganked from their seats by security after someone complained about their moves during the song “Get Naked,” causing the girls to miss three songs. I doubt a few girls in a row of seats could do anywhere near as much damage as scantily clad Brit Brit was likely doing on stage. All I have to say is, “Pot. Meet kettle.” [NY Post] Keep reading »

I’m pretty sure the cast of “The Real World: Cancun” is the worst bunch of deplorable nincompoops in the show’s history. On last night’s episode, newly single Jonna (pronounced “Jon-nay”) was gettin’ busy with this tool named Pat (who already hooked up with her roommate Jasmine) and the two of them ended up having a threesome with “bi-curious” roomie Ayiiia (how are there three f**king “i”‘s in this chick’s name?!). Afterward, everyone (but Pat, of course, who, SHOCKER, turns out not to be the sweetheart Jonna thought he was) is feeling all guilty and ashamed, worried about what Mom and Dad will say. Ayiiia ended up bawling her eyes out because she feels so judged by her family. Now, I don’t know what your parents are like, but mine are both pretty liberal and open-minded and they would not be cool with me boning anyone on reality TV, let alone two people, never mind two people who are total jackasses. So, tell me folks, are threesomes becoming a lot more commonplace? Does having one make you a big ol’ tramp or is it a normal rite of passage, so long as you’re safe? Keep reading »
Corn Nuts! I am literally shaking with excitement over the news that “Heathers” is being revamped into a TV show. The 1989 movie, the ultimate high school revenge fantasy, elevated Winona Ryder to star status as she tried to fit in with her school’s mean girls, all named Heather. (The best: Heather Chandler, played by pre-”90210″ Shannen Doherty). Until J.D. (a hot Christian Slater) rolled into town and made her his accomplice in murdering the cool kids in school and making ‘em look like suicides. “Heathers” remains one of my top five favorite flicks of all time, and I have a feeling a show based on it could be very, very good—like “Gossip Girl” with a dark comedy twist. Jenny Bicks, a “Sex and the City” writer, is also executive producing. And the word on the street is that Winona and Christian may even be reprising their bad-ass roles. Prepare your croquet mallets and start singing “Que Sera Sera.” [Press Association] Keep reading »
“She’s what I call a meteor – singers who entertain people for a while. Hey, there’s nothing wrong with that. But then there are people like Neil Young who show up at Glastonbury 40 years into their career. And that’s a very different kind of artist. Neil Young doesn’t have to get his bum out on stage! The question is, will Lady Gaga be playing alongside Neil Young at Glastonbury in 20 years time? She wants to entertain people. Right now, half the world is depressed and they need to be entertained. So her timing’s perfect.”
— Tori Amos telling us how she really feels about Lady Gaga. Yeah, well, I bet Gaga would rather be a meteor than a “Cornflake Girl”… [via The Sun] Keep reading »
You’ve probably heard of Tucker Max, blogger and author of the memoir I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell, who regaled the bestseller list with stories of sex with many, many women and excessive drinking. (The charming cover illustration is of a man holding a beer bottle and pointing to a blonde chick, whose face is cut out with the words “Your Face Here” written instead. Because we’re all inter-changeable, you see.) Max is that particularly awful brand of d-bag who is proud of critics who call him morally depraved and immature; in fact, his book is blurbed with hateful things people have said about him.
So, of course, Hollywood gave this fellow a movie deal! The film version of “I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell,” which focuses on strip club/bachelor party shenanigans, debuts on September 25 and North Carolina State University planned an advanced screening today, followed by a Q&A session with Max.
But then the campus Women’s Center caught wind of the flick, which it said is sexist and encourages behavior leading to sexual assault. Surely you’re wondering, what’s so bad with this film? Keep reading »
