Kelly Osbourne quits E!’s Fashion Police

I haven’t really reported on all the bullshit going on over at E! headquarters lately, but no doubt you’ll have read all about it online by now. In case you did miss it, singer/actress Zendaya hit the Oscars red carpet last weekend looking absolutely beautiful in a long white Vivienne Westwood dress. Fashion Police co-host Giuliana Rancic didn’t really care about the dress, however – she cared about Zendaya’s dreadlocks, which she remarked during a live broadcast probably smelled “like patchouli oil or weed”. Yikes.

Obviously that’s racist as hell and absolutely fucking ridiculous, but Giuliana Rancic is lame as hell and seems to be lacking in the brain cell department, so I wasn’t really all that surprised that she would say something like that. She did eventually apologize, and Zendaya very VERY gracefully accepted her apology and posted a very eloquent statement on her Instagram, but the whole thing was a hot mess and Kelly Osbourne wanted to steer clear of the bullshit, partly because she didn’t want to be associated with such blatant and stupid discriminatory comments and also because Zendaya is actually her friend.

Anyhow, in a move that apparently has NOTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH THIS FIASCO, Kelly has quit Fashion Police and is moving on to bigger and better things, apparently.

Here’s the statement from E!:

“Kelly Osbourne is departing E!s Fashion Police to pursue other opportunities, and we would like to thank her for her many contributions to the series over the past five years, during which time the show became a hit with viewers,” E! Entertainment said in a statement Friday. “Fashion Police will return, as scheduled, on Monday, March 30, at 9 p.m. and no decisions have been made on her replacement.”

And from Melissa Rivers, who produces the show (and is of course the daughter of the late Joan Rivers, who Kelly was quite close to:

“Kelly Osbourne is a friend and has been a wonderful part of the Fashion Police family. I will miss her terribly and wish her the very best in all of her future endeavors. As my mother always said, the show must go on and I plan to continue in the same spirit.”

Oh man. Sure, this show is a disaster and things haven’t been the same since Joan passed, as many are pointing out, but something tells me this stunt was the final straw.

Bill Cosby won’t go away no matter how much you wish he would

bill cosby

Bill Cosby has been accused of countless instances of rape, drugging and sexual assault at this point and seems to be thought no worse of by much of the public. He continues to tour and tell his bullshit rape “jokes”, he continues to walk free without being brought to trial, and he also continues to torture us by promising that his dirty old man ass anytime soon, no matter how much you wish he would.

You see, Bill is scheduled to perform in Louisiana tonight, and while he’s had to cancel a few of his other shows, this one will go on as normal, and he’s even issued a written statement confirming his intentions to keep his career going.

“Dear Fans: For 53 years you have given me your love, support, respect and trust. Thank you! I can’t wait to see your smiling faces and warm your hearts with a wonderful gift – LAUGHTER. I’m ready! I thank you, the theatre staff (Heymann Performing Arts Center), the event organizers and the Lafayette community for your continued support and coming to experience family, fun entertainment. Hey, hey, hey – I’m far from finished.” 

Is that a threat or a promise, Bill? I’m sure the theatre will be full of smiling, clapping, idiotic faces – because I’m sorry, you have to be an idiot (and that’s putting it kindly) to go out and enjoy a Bill Cosby comedy show at this point. There’s nothing funny about the things this man has done, sorry.

Kid Rock: ‘Beyonce’s not hot; I like skinny white women with big tits’

kid rock

Welp, whenever Kid Rock gives his astute opinions on matters of the heart, what can one do but sit back, listen and take time to properly reflect on the profound observations he lays at our feet? Kid’s latest diatribe involves Beyonce, and particularly how she’s totally not hot at all and he doesn’t get what all the fuss is about. However, he’s not hating – you’re free to like what you like, just as he’s free to chase his own dreams: white women with a low BMI and humungous breasts.

From Rolling Stone:

Rock sometimes seems like a right-wing politician catering to his base. He won’t play Europe or mainstream U.S. festivals, but he will play SeaWorld. His fans love it when he shouts things like “Fuck Radiohead” onstage or attacks mainstream pop. He’s “flabbergasted” by Beyoncé worship. “Beyoncé, to me, doesn’t have a fucking ‘Purple Rain,’ but she’s the biggest thing on Earth. How can you be that big without at least one ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ or ‘Old Time Rock & Roll’? People are like, ‘Beyoncé’s hot. Got a nice fucking ass.’ I’m like, ‘Cool, I like skinny white chicks with big tits.’ Doesn’t really fucking do much for me.”

Well, hey – at least he’s honest. Can’t fault him for that! And he – God help me for saying this – actually kinda has a point. Beyonce has had a lot of songs that people know, but is she a legend yet? Eh… debatable.

One more thing – don’t expect Kid to have a country career anytime soon!

Rock could have had a country career after his 2001 hit with Sheryl Crow, “Picture” — he is routinely asked to co-write with Nashville’s top songwriters – but he’s not interested. “In country, those award shows make your career?.?.?.?and I don’t suck dick,” he says. “I’ll tickle your balls a little bit. But I ain’t gonna suck your dick.”

LOL, okay, man. Whatever you say! I legit like Kid Rock – he seems like an absolute ass, but he’s hilarious and doesn’t give a shit what anyone thinks. You can’t help but find that enjoyable.

Leonard Nimoy dies, aged 83

leonard nimoy

I grew up watching Star Trek. When I say “watching”, that’s a bit of an understatement, since I was downright obsessed in adolescence, being of the Voyager era (speak no ill – Janeway was the best). My love for that show opened me up to sci-fi as a genre, and I explored the other Trek series over the years. I still find them to be one of the cleverest, most imaginative and hopeful series ever made, and Leonard Nimoy was a massive part of that. Spock is one of the most legendary characters in TV history. Sadly, Leonard has now passed away at the age of 83.

From The New York Times:

Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. He was 83.

His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed his death, saying the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Mr. Nimoy announced that he had the disease last year, attributing it to years of smoking, a habit he had given up three decades earlier. He had been hospitalized earlier in the week.

Very sad news. Rest in peace, Leonard.

Katy Perry Instagrams from Auschwitz

Katy Perry has been spending time in Europe lately, presumably as part of her Prismastic World Tour, but I don’t really know and I’m too lazy to Google. What I do know is that she’s doing her best to put a ~KP sPiN~ on every city she hits, because what’s a 30-year-old woman to do when checking out different locales but pretend to give the Leaning Tower of Pisa a blow job and point out stone penises?

In case you thought I was joking.

This was titled “Nailed it.”

It’s all fun and games in Katy’s world, but things took on a more somber tone once she got to Poland, when she and her team visited the Nazi concentration camps at Auschwitz and Katy – thank God – showed some due respect and deference to the horrific place:


I don’t really know how I feel about Instagramming Auschwitz. I mean, Katy’s far from the only one to do it, of course, and she was quite respectful about it, but I suppose I find it difficult to understand why one would want photographs of a place like that. I also read a really interesting essay a few days back about how photography generally separates us from fully experiencing or immersing ourselves in something (whether it be a concert, a concentration camp, etc), so spending your time trying to crop perfect pics for a social network sorta adds an inappropriate levity to the matter, in a sense. At the same time, this is the age we’re living in and I don’t think most taking photos there are doing it to be trite – at least not intentionally so.

What do you guys think? And have any of you actually been to Auschwitz?

Kanye West apologizes to Beck

kanye west

Kanye West had an absolute fit at the Grammys this year when Beck took home the Album of the Year award, because if Kanye doesn’t get his way, the world is going to know about it. And, in case you forgot, there are no real artists in the world besides Kanye and Beyonce. Everyone else should just step aside and make sure they get all the awards because that’s what’s right.

At least that’s how he felt before… and now he’s seemingly had a change of heart. Not only has he extended the olive branch of peace to his once sworn nemesis Taylor Swift, but he’s also offered a public apology to Beck in the most meaningful way possible: on Twitter.


That’s not all, though! Kanye is also sorry for being a dick to Bruno Mars and would like to capitalize on his success by getting Bruno to sing the hook on a new track he’s working on:



Wow. What a charmer.
