Remember that Michael Douglas movie “The Game,” where Michael Douglas’s loser brother Sean Penn gets him a ticket to “The Game” for his birthday, only “The Game” is some horrible, weird live-action adventure thing where he’s constantly chased and threatened, and ends up in a shack in Mexico? Yeah. I made everyone promise to never “The Game” me after I saw that.
I guess a guy named Adam Thick also saw “The Game,” but it inspired him to start a Genius Biz.com Idea: Extreme Kidnapping. Keep reading »
I just did my taxes last night and felt justified writing off my legitimate business expenses. Stuff like books I bought or taxis I took to and from work events. I’m very proud of how anal I am about saving every receipt. Apparently, a number of rappers such as The Game, Jim Jones, Bizzy Bone, Daz Dillinger and Lil’ Flip feel that their legitimate business expenses should include money spent at strip clubs. TMZ spoke to a few of the rappers crusading for the “make it rain” tax deduction. Their pleas to Uncle Sam after the jump. Keep reading »
Rare is the woman whose adventures in dating — scratch that, in living — have kept her from a brush with a pickup artist. I guess I’ve got the equivalent of pickup artist herpes because I actually dated one. Well, a former one. Keep reading »
“Whatever my friend Rihanna wants to do. It’s whatever she wants to do. [To] forgive is a word that people need to rethink and actually figure out whether they can do that, or if they’re just saying that they can forgive and they actually can’t and don’t possess the power to do that. And [Rihanna] does, [and] I do, along with a lot of people I know do. You know we’re all human at the end of the day. This isn’t ‘hey, [I'm] sticking up for this person, or whatever.’ It’s not about that. It’s really about what I was taught as a kid. This is how I thought the world was supposed to work, you know. We want forgiveness when it’s us, but we don’t want forgiveness when it’s somebody else. It’s like you’re in a glass house and and you’re casting rocks out … You’re just shattering your own house because the same willingness you have to not forgive someone else, you have to understand that one day you’re going to have a child and that child may do something that you don’t sincerely approve of. But you have to start to understand that we are human and this is how it is.”
– The Dream, who produced Rihanna’s song “Birthday Cake” that she remixed with her abusive ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, tells PopCrush what he thinks about the controversy. Keep reading »
Some of you might have heard of or read Neil Strauss’ The Game, a fawning book about a silver tongued Casanova who goes by the mysterious code-name Mystery. Probably many more of you have seen ridiculously dressed beanpole Mystery tutor his homoerotic boy-cult on Vh1′s reality show “The Pick-Up Artist.” Is it just me or does he look like cross between a Las Vegas magician and a Dr. Seuss character? What you don’t know is if you know a guy who’s signed up for a class in picking up women (like New York’s “The Art of Charm”) or sloppily employed the social tools taught in these classes, written about in books, or demonstrated on television shows.
