Perez Hilton & Miss California Face Off

Perez Hilton and Miss California, Carrie Prejean, were on “The Today Show” this morning, talking about the controversy surrounding the beauty queen’s response to Hilton’s gay marriage question at Sunday’s Miss USA Pageant. On the show, Hilton was extremely well-spoken and made the argument that Miss California alienated many Americans with her anti-gay marriage response. Because Miss USA is supposed to represent all Americans, it cost her the crown. I’m not sure that I look to a beauty queen to represent me or my views to the world, but I get his point. When it was Prejean’s turn to speak, she said she spoke from her heart, and she stands by what she says, as it reflects her religious beliefs. I can kind of respect the woman for answering honestly, even though I personally disagree. But what about the fact that her response was poorly delivered? I mean, “opposite marriage”? As Hilton said, Miss California should have been better prepared for that question and had a coherent, if unpopular, answer ready to go. Keep reading »

Coachella: Where We Wish We’d Been This Weekend

For the past 10 years, the Coachella Music Festival has brought hundreds of thousands of panting people to Indio, CA to shake their moneymakers. [NY Times]. So, put on an ironic tee, grab a PBR, and climb on the shoulders of some dude you just met in Elvis Costello specs. It’ll feel just like being there, I promise.

Mandy Moore’s A Heartbreaker (And A Ball-Buster)

Mandy Moore is a whole new woman these days. Not only is she a newlywed (her husband is musician Ryan Adams), but she has an album coming out May 26. The video for her first single, “I Could Break Your Heart Any Day of The Week,” is out, and after watching it, we’ll be very interested in hear her other new songs. While Mandy was über pop-tastic back in her early days, her last album, Wild Hope, was very folksy and more our speed. Has she gone back to a more “Candy”-like style, or has Ryan had an influence on her sound? I guess we’ll find out when Amanda Leigh hits stores next month. Keep reading »

Commercials Sexualize Ovens And Stoves To Sell Products

I scratched my head the first time I saw this Quizno’s commercial for the Toasty Torpedo sandwich. I wasn’t confused by the homoerotica. Hey, sex can sell anything! What was perplexing was that it seemed as though the Quizno’s employee had had sex with the talking oven. As it turns out, I was a little behind the times. People having sex with objects (and I’m not talking sex toys) is nothing new. Keep reading »

    Miss California Prefers “Opposite Marriage”

    In what is quickly becoming the YouTube moment of last night’s Miss USA Pageant, Miss California answered a question from guest judge Perez Hilton about the legalization of same sex marriage. Asked whether every state should follow suit since Vermont became the fourth state to legalize same sex marriage earlier this month, Miss California replied that she thinks it’s “great” that Americans can choose between same sex marriage or “opposite marriage,” but that in her country, she believes marriage should be between a man and woman. Isn’t California still part of America? On his blog, Perez called Miss California’s response the “worst answer in pageant history.” While I agree it was pretty bad, who can forget Miss South Carolina’s disastrous answer in the Miss Teen USA Pageant a couple years ago? Relive that moment, after the jump. Keep reading »
