Quickies: Liz Taylor And Michael Jackson’s Post-9/11 Road Trip & Blake Shelton’s Anti-Gay Tweets

  • On September 10, 2001, Michael Jackson played a concert in New York City and his two good pals, Liz Taylor and Marlon Brando, sat in the audience. On September 11th, NYC was attacked by terrorists and friends of the now-deceased stars claim the threesome hopped in a car and started driving cross-country. Claims Vanity Fair magazine, “Brando allegedly annoyed his traveling companions by insisting on stopping at nearly every KFC and Burger King they passed along the highway.” Praise be, this has all been explained for our amusement via Taiwanese animation.

Today’s Lady News: UK Politicians Support Girls-Only Abstinence Education

  • Politicians in the UK advanced a bill that would require British girls — yes, only the girls — to receive additional sex education that emphasizes the benefits of abstinence. This sex ed “program,” if you could even call it that, is aimed at girls ages 13 to 16. It narrowly passed, but fortunately it’s not expected to be made into law. Um, will someone tell the Brits that abstinence-only education is not working out too well for us? Do they have “16 & Pregnant” on MTV over there? [Guardian UK]
  • North Carolina’s House judiciary committee debated a bill yesterday that would further restrict reproductive rights in the state by requiring women to wait 24 hours before having an abortion and requiring doctors to describe an ultrasound of the fetus to the woman. [ABC News]
  • Legislation that would make it more difficult for young women to obtain abortions without their parents knowledge is headed to Florida’s Governor Rick Scott, who is expected to sign it. [Palm Beach Post]

Bradley Cooper To Play Lucifer In “Paradise Lost”

Depending on how Bradley Cooper and Renee Zellwegger‘s breakup went down, she may think he’s the devil. And it appears that he actually may be—at least onscreen. Cooper is apparently in talks to star as Lucifer in a 3D film version of John Milton’s epic poem, Paradise Lost. The screenplay is being written by Lawrence Kasdan of “Star Wars” fame, and will be directed by Alex Proyas, the director of the original “The Crow.” In a strange twist, Bradley is also rumored to be up for the role in a remake of that one that we don’t quite understand. I guess this is Bradley’s dark phase? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Miss Bossypants Herself To Host “SNL” This Weekend

Woo-hoo! Tina Fey is returning to her old stomping grounds, “Saturday Night Live,” this weekend. She will be hosting while Ellie Goulding, aka the chickadee who played the royal wedding, does the musical guest thing. “SNL” promos are never quite as funny as I want them to be, but still—just had to share these because we love Tina that much.

Donald Trump And Lynn Patridge Lock Lips

On Sunday night, prepare to witness the most unholy of lip locks. While in New York, Audrina Patridge and her often-tipsy mom Lynn stopped by Donald Trump‘s office to talk about “business opportunities” for Audrina — with the cameras for her VH1 reality show rolling, of course. Trump said that Audrina is “beautiful and smart” and would be welcome on “Celebrity Apprentice” or as a co-host of the Miss Universe pageant. Eeek. But the worst part is when Trump and Lynn said goodbye, kissing each other somewhere between the cheek and lip, on repeat. And giving us this horrifying image. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
