16-Year-Old Jada Posts Powerful #IAmJada Photo

#iamjada jada

This powerful image before you is Jada, a 16-year-old girl in Texas who was sexually assaulted at a party last month and doubly victimized when pictures taken of the assault went viral online. The hashtag #jadapose shot around the Internet, with kids posing like Jada lying on the floor.  I hope this photo of Jada, her fist raised alongside the hashtag #IAmJada, will become the new Jada pose.

Ronan Farrow Talks Going To College At 11 On “The Daily Show”

Ronan Farrow
Ronan's New MSNBC Show Debuts On Monday

This is refreshing: a member of the Farrow family is in the news and it’s not related to the Woody Allen child molestation accusation saga. Ronan Farrow, 26-year-old prodigy and son of Mia and maybe Frank Sinatra, is the host of a new MSNBC talk show, which debuts on Monday. The former Rhodes Scholar, who has logged time at both the United Nations and the Obama administration, will host “Ronan Farrow Daily,” airing at 1 p.m. EST. Last night Ronan hit up “The Daily Show” to discuss his unconventional life story: college at 11, working for the UN at 16, and Yale Law at 18. He’s a little bit more awkward and dorky than I would have thought, but that will add to his charm on his new show, I think? The cable news landscape (not you, Rachel Maddow!) needs all the help it can get, so I for one see smarty-pants Ronan as the freshest breath of air. [The Daily Show]

Alec Baldwin Speaks Out About MSNBC Firing, Denies Using Slur

  • Alec Baldwin spoke to the New York City blog Gothamist on his firing from MSNBC today and insisted he never used the phrase “faggot,” when he allegedly called a paparazzo a “cocksucking faggot.” Explained the “30 Rock” actor, ” I dispute half the comment I made… if I called him ‘cocksucking maggot’ or a ‘cocksucking motherfucker’… ‘faggot’ is not the word that came out of my mouth. That I know.” [Gothamist]
  • Joan Rivers defended Baldwin’s firing to TMZ by using every slur in the book. (Very NSFW!) [TMZ]
  • Two women who worked for celebrity chef Nigella Lawson have accused her of using cocaine, weed, and prescription pills. Supposedly the women, a pair of Italian sisters, were told they had to keep her drug use a secret from her ex-husband Charles Saatchi, who was photographed choking her at a London restaurant.

Alec Baldwin is reportedly losing his MSNBC talk show, “Up Late With Alec Baldwin,” following a suspension for allegedly calling a paparazzo a gay slur, according to Page Six. Earlier this month, the “30 Rock” star allegedly called the photographer a “cocksucking fag.” Page Six claims MSNBC’s parent company Comcast has decided to nix the talk show, which pulled in crappy ratings anyway.  The actor has had numerous other outbursts, including threatening a British tabloid writer and calling him a “toxic little queen” and punching a paparazzo in the face. Regardless of whether this MSNBC rumor is true, I’m sure Alec Baldwin will have a hotheaded response, whether on Twitter, in real life, or on someone else’s talk show. [Page Six] [Photo: Getty]

MSNBC Fails Miserably At Wishing Kim And Kanye A Happy Engagement

Kimye chyron fail

MSNBC tried, but failed miserably to report the engagement of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. The “Kimye Engaged” caption accidentally (or on purpose?) flickered on the chyron over some footage of a man falling onto the NYC subway tracks. So macabre, but strangely, so indicative of how we feel about the whole thing. [Huffington Post]
