On discovering there’s life outside of Russell Brand’s jaunty little penis:
“It just feels like the thing running our country is a bank, money. I know it sounds like an intense viewpoint, but I’m only slowly but surely getting the wool taken off my eyes. When I was a kid, I asked questions about my faith. Now I’m asking questions about the world.”
It’s an “intense viewpoint”? It’s not, you know, the point of view that most people both locally and internationally have? Interesting. Katy Perry outwits me every damned time.
On nationalizing health care:
“I think we are largely in desperate need of revolutionary change in the way our mindset is. Our priority is fame, and people’s wellness is way low. I saw this knowing full well that I’m a part of the problem. I’m playing the game, though I am trying to reroute. Anyway, not to get all politically divulging and introspective, but the fact that America doesn’t have free health care drives me fucking absolutely crazy, and is so wrong.”
How her faith made her boobs so big:
“I started praying for [breasts] when I was, like, 11. And God answered that prayer above and beyond, by, like, 100 times, until I was like, ‘Please, stop, God. I can’t see my feet anymore. Please stop!”
Apparently God ignored her pleas on that one.
And he’s not going to be pleased with her new alien obsession, either:
“Oh my God. When it [History Channel specials] talks about the sky people , how everyone comes from the sky and how the Pyramids were used for star observations, it’s too much for me. It all seems to connect the dots. It’s blowing my mind.”
Gah, Katy Perry, what’s next, Scientology?

The first photo of the Hart family has emerged! Pink and her husband, Carey Hart, gave birth to their first child a few weeks ago, Willow Sage Hart. Not only is that possibly the cutest name ever, but these three are absolutely adorable together. It’s kind of like when Nicole Richie and Joel Madden had their first kid, just better.
And incidentally, Pink is looking AMAZING these days. Seriously, this might be the best I’ve ever seen her look. Way to be a normal girl, girl!

You know what I think is nuts? People mocking Kirstie Alley for going out without makeup. Seriously. I know we snark out a lot here on Evil Beet, but this is straight talk right now – Kirstie Alley is sixty years old. And from what my non-expert eye can discern, she’s never had a spot of plastic surgery. And for THAT, I commend her. She looks like a normal, sixty-year-old woman, and I’m going to one-up what I just said – she looks even BETTER than a lot of sixty-year-old women I know, and not in that scary, plastic way that a lot of her peers seem to have mastered.
Bottom line? Lay the fuck off of Kirstie Alley for going out in public without makeup. I give her mad props for staying true to who she is (overweight or not), and I think it says a whole lot about a person who can rock the natural look and not give a flying shit what anyone has to say. Chances are, those who’re really bellyaching about this thing are going to look like Heidi Montag in twenty years anyway, and let’s be realistic: there’s nothing attractive about that.

And in a completely unsurprising move, they performed it on the latest Voice episode. Which is kind of what I want to talk about. Is anyone actually watching this show? Seriously, I think I know one person who’s addicted to it. And I don’t even really “know” them, I just happened to hear them talking about how much they loooove it one day in passing. I mean, I don’t even see Facebook discussions about this show. I think that’s the true telling of something’s popularity these days, doesn’t it?
Do you guys (if any of you are, you know, watching it) think it’s going to be a one-and-done type thing, maybe kind of like the song that Adam and Christina performed, or do you think it’s here to stay?

One thing I’ve got to say is that Britney‘s really kicking things up with this tour, all these singles, photo shoots and new videos. Girlfriend has got her game ON. This video is probably the best yet, in that she’s charming, engaging, dancing like a normal person and not someone with metal bars reinforcing their skeletons, and her eyes? LOOK SANE. Seriously. No crazy eyes to be had in this video.
However, there are a few questionable things to be seen: ripping off Half-Baked‘s famous “fuck you, I’m out” skit (I wonder if she got permission to, like, do that. That’s probably some pretty big trouble if she didn’t, y’know), flashing a police officer in front of a minor (ding: MORE big trouble), and yesterday’s “bust a pap in the mouth with a mic” thing. Promoting violence are we? And the ending is just weird. Is that supposed to be an Adnan Ghalib-alike? And what’s with the milk – and the seashells?
Regardless, I’m on board for a full-on Britney revival, and it doesn’t look like it’s that far off.
