chris odowd amaretto

Why, Chris O’Dowd, why? The “Bridesmaids” actor and his wife Dawn O’Porter, a writer/documentarian, are hands-down my favorite celebrity couple. Which is why I was bummed to see O’Dowd tweet what basically reads like a date rape joke. “Drop the hand” is Irish slang for fingering or groping someone, which means he tweeted that he was going to “sneak” amaretto in her food on date night so he could finger her.

First of all, that’s a dumb joke. It doesn’t make sense. Who puts amaretto in food? Second of all, even though it was a joke (these two tweet all the time about both sex and getting drunk, which is why I like them), cracks about sneaking liquor into someone so you can get sex out of them are date rapey and not cool. It’s not “naughty” or “mischievous”; it’s gross. [Twitter.com/BigBoyler]

In a statement, Reebok said, “While we do not believe that Rick Ross condones sexual assault, we are very disappointed he has yet to display an understanding of the seriousness of this issue or an appropriate level of remorse.” [FashionistaTMZ]

tyler perry temptation

Usually movies like Tyler Perry’s “Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor” are right up my alley. You don’t see a Tyler Perry film because you’re under any illusions it will be good. At their best, Perry movies excel at hitting the sweet spot of terrible, the kind of bad movie you can’t wait to pick apart with your friends afterward. Why else did I go see “Twilight: Breaking Dawn — Part 2″ in theaters? I was under no illusions I was seeing a good film. I wanted a glorious waste, and boy, did I get my money’s worth. Michael Sheen’s evil laugh was worth the price of admission alone.

Like Tommy Wiseau’s “The Room,” Perry’s films aren’t so much made as they are loosely cobbled together, and it’s fun to point out the seams in his craftsmanship. The sound design is terrible, the acting is all over the place and the film takes place in about seven different genres simultaneously. “Temptation” can’t decide if it wants to be a melodrama, high camp, a morality play, a broad comedy, a Lifetime movie or a potboiler, so it makes the proceedings into a $5.99 buffet — a little bit of this, a lot of that, doused with camp and unintentional humor. Douglas Sirk would have loved Tyler Perry.

However, despite my best efforts to find the film funny, there’s something immensely troubling about the morality slopped in with Perry’s genre stew. The film is about a Christian woman’s destructive sexual awakening and an affair that leads her away from her marriage. “Temptation” initially feels like a rebuttal to readers of Kate Chopin (or, heaven forbid, E.L. James) showing how passion can destroy the stability we take for granted. The main character is the therapist for a “Millionaire Matchmaker”-type who has her wandering eye on a billionaire client. He looks like a male model, is named Harley and drives a red sportscar. He espouses the belief that humans should have sex like animals. [Spoilers after the jump!] Keep reading »

Michigan Radio Station Won’t Play Rick Ross After Rape Reference In Rap Song

Today's Lady News photo
  • Radio station 103.7 The Beat in Michigan announced it won’t play Rick Ross or Lil Wayne music in their rotation because of their offensive lyrics. Wayne equated what he wanted to do to a woman’s body with what happened to murdered black man Emmett Till; earlier this week, Ross rapped about slipping “molly” (MDMA) in a woman’s drink and raping her. A statement from 103.7 The Beat explained,  ”While we believe in freedom of speech, creative writing and individualism, we refuse to be part of the problem by spreading messages that could harm or end someone’s life.” Ross, meanwhile, says the whole thing is a “misinterpretation” because he never said the word “rape” and he wants all the “sexy ladies, the beautiful ladies” to know he thinks rape is bad. Uh huh. [Clutch Mag, Clutch Mag]

  • “Put Molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it/I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain’t even know it,” are some charming new Rick Ross lyrics from a song by Rocko called “You Don’t Even Know It.” ‘Molly’ is a slang term for the drug MDMA. See, what the girl in Rick Ross’ song doesn’t even know is that she’s getting drugged and RAPED. Fucking gross. [Hello Beautiful]
