I noticed that on Fridayish a lot of celebrities tweeted about something called “Carmageddon,” and I thought it was so weird that a 1997 computer game was suddenly getting this much visibility. So I googled for answers. Turns out the LAPD actually asked celebrities to go on Twitter and announce that the 405 Freeway will be closed all weekend. Yawn.
In spite of his technical difficulties, I still say Steve Martin is the only old man who should be allowed on Twitter:
As for Sarah Silverman, she is so right about this next thing. She should be a theater critic!
I think Yoko Ono is trying to get all existential and meta:
(I read that and snorted, and then I looked up and stared at my off-kilter lampshade, which is always and irretrievably off-kilter, and then I sloooowly realized that maybe Yoko Ono wants me to tilt my entire living room to match my one lampshade.)
Rob Schneider hasn’t made a good movie in ages—or ever?—but his career could be worse. He definitely has his priorities straight:
You see that half-naked ginger running into the bushes? That’s comedian Kathy Griffin, who moments before this photo was snapped, was dancing completely topless on a dock in Miami. Titties floppin’ all over the place, the whole deal. We have pictures after the jump, but before you go and check them out (and probably make disparaging remarks about her appearance and behavior in the comments,) can I just say that there’s something so refreshing about how shameless and non-shit giving this lady is? She’s fifty years old, she’s at the highest point in her career, and she still can’t help herself from dancing at the end of the dock like she’s a 16-year-old runaway living off of tips. You’re either the kind of person who can appreciate that level of spiritedness or not, and I’m the former.
Kathy Griffin’s semi-nudes are after the jump, fools. Read More
“You know, Kathy Griffin can do anything to me or say anything about me, because you know, she’s kind of this – she’s a 50-year-old adult bully is really what she is. … She’s kind of a has-been comedian and she can do those things to me. I would just ask for respect of my children. As she had stated on CNN that her New Year’s resolution was to destroy my 16-year-old daughter, that takes it a little too far. Kathy, pick on me, come up to Alaska and pick on me, but leave my kids alone.”
Oh how I would just LOVE to see a Kathy Griffin-Sarah Palin bitchfight erupt. It’d be grand on an epic scale of all holy hell.
A little back story – Griffin said, earlier this year, that her goal over the next twelve months would be to destroy Sarah’s youngest daughter, Willow, because Griffin hates people who hate other people, OK? And though it’d be thoroughly intriguing to find out what kind of menace Kathy could wreak upon the girl, who’s rumored to be a bigoted homophobe, and her life, she’s still a fucking sixteen-year-old girl. And I know – Miley was once a sixteen-year-old girl, too, and sometimes those are the better ages as a person evolves into the devil themselves, but give the kid a chance. She’s a Palin, after all, right? Left to her own devices, she’s sure to self-destruct for awhile at the very least.
Who would win in a celebrity death match between Kathy and Sarah, and what weapons would you like to see be used? (I’m pulling for WMDs, but a little birdie told me that they just. don’t. exist.)
“If CNN dares to pull me live, I’ll be walking right over to New Year’s Rockin’ Eve to give Dick Clark a lap dance. It’s up to you America.”
-Kathy Griffin, explaining to The Hollywood Reporter what she will do if CNN pulls her off of their New Years Eve broadcast for swearing.
I’m not exactly sure how this is “up to America”, but I can’t imagine any better way to ring in 2011 than by watching my favorite loudmouthed female straddle an octogenarian on live TV. Fingers crossed she blows it by 8:15 so I can call it an early night.
I told y’alls about the It Gets Better Project over the weekend. So many people, especially celebs, are reaching out in support of Dan Savage’s It Gets Better Project and Kathy Griffin contributed with this vlog over the weekend.
In it she talks about bullying, gay teens she’s met and how there’s life after high school and small-town, small-minded living.
I never really followed Griffin too much, but this was way too good to pass up. I love her (clearly staged) reaction to finding out that Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin, daughter of “hopey-changey” Sarah Palin, are back to knockin’ boots.
If there is one “celebrity” that makes my skin crawl, it’s that little goody two-shoes, stick-up-her-ass, wet blanket Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Not only does this woman give Republicans a bad name, but she’s inarticulate, passive-aggressive and generally childish. Exhibit A: Her reaction to Kathy Griffin on this morning’s episode of The View.
Now, it’s no secret that Kathy has dished on Elisabeth in her stand up and that the two have radically different political views, but while most people are able to put politics aside and see the humor in Kathy’s roast-like stand up act, Elisabeth just broke down. Throughout the entirety of Kathy’s interview, Elisabeth stayed silent only piping up to ask loaded questions about her stance on Obama and the state of the White House. At one point, Kathy is talking about the work she’s done to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and Elisabeth absentmindedly stares at her fingernails. She also paused at one point to stretch and yawn. During an interview on a televised talk show. If that doesn’t qualify someone as a bitch, then I don’t know what does.
Toward the end of the second segment (check it out after the jump), Elisabeth tries to defend herself to Kathy, asking her if she’s uncomfortable being around the people that she’s bashed in her act. Kathy came back with a “I live for it, bitch!” and Elisabeth quickly backed down, but it was clear that she didn’t “get it”. Elisabeth Hasselbeck is her own worst enemy because she’s ignorant. She cannot see outside of her tiny world. In a way, we need someone as thick-headed as her on television to use an example of how dangerous stupidity can be.
