After a brief respite, James Franco is back to being The Worst, today unleashing his new poem, “Obama in Asheville,” which was supposedly written for the president’s inauguration or something. The poem reads like a boring Wiki of all the things James learned in English 101, and then veers off to talk about getting a burrito at the burrito shop. It includes references to more than two dozen other authors (that James Franco clearly believes he’s in the company of) an also mentions the graduate class James Franco’s teaching; James Franco in Spiderman; James Franco’s Academy Awards; James Franco attending a Vanity Fair dinner — wait a sec, what does this have to do with Obama again?
The full text of this lousy “poem” is after the jump (and NB to JF: putting a poorly written screed into stanzas does not a poem make). Keep reading »
With apologies to Jackie O, I think Michelle Obama is the most stylish first lady this country has ever had, and her fashion choices just keep getting better. Case in point: the stunning Michael Kors gown she donned for the Kennedy Center Honors last night. With its glittering gold fabric and jeweled neckline, it’s a little edgy and totally elegant. This right here, folks, is an iconic fashion moment. Check out another pic of Mrs. O’s amazing dress after the jump! Keep reading »
Between Brian Williams making marijuana jokes, Diane Sawyer possibly being drunk(?), and Karl Rove begging Fox News to take back that whole “Obama wins” thing, the election newscasts last night were chock full of fun. Even among all the holograms and painted ice maps, I couldn’t help but notice Tom Brokaw’s awesome tortoiseshell eyeglasses. The trendy round frames somehow seemed both playful and sophisticated–well played, Brokaw. Want to nab a pair for yourself? I found 3 similar frames at 3 different price points. Get the shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »
Beyonce sported some eye-catching hoop earrings for a dinner date with hubby Jay-Z over the weekend, and as you can see from this closeup, they spell out a clear message: OBAMA. And guess what? This political fashion statement is actually affordable for those of us who have never been on a yacht. Bey’s earrings are by Erika Peña, and retail for about 30 bucks. So, would you wear them? Or would you prefer a pair of bedazzled Romney hoops? [Hollywood Life]
Now that we’ve gotten that silly town hall presidential debate out of the way, let’s discuss what’s really important: clothes! In a twist of fashion fate, First Lady Michelle Obama and Ann Romney both sported vibrant pink to last night’s event in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Egg went for a casual sheath style in a crepey fabric, which she paired with a chunky beaded teal necklace, while Michelle opted for a dressier look complete with matching jacket and a string of pearls. We have our own convictions about who came out on top (and who got shoved in a binder), but what say you?
Scott Stapp is the lead singer of ’90s band Creed. Creed are a bunch of Nickleback Jrs. — they used to be, like, the most hated band in the world until Chad Kroeger and Co. unseated them. Nowadays, Stapp is busy punditing about the upcoming election on Fox News. He’d really like another Reagan, but might just settle for Romney! Important, if you’re the type to make your political choices based on how your favorite ’90s musicians will vote. But more importantly, Stapp now looks like Quagmire on “Family Guy.”
