Thanks in part to a tendency to engage in activites like this weekend’s Red-Bull and vodka fueled extreme version of what most women do when they get dumped (new hairstyle, copious amounts of drinking) singer and former Fleetwood Mac front woman, Stevie Nicks, isn’t too keen on the idea of Lindsay Lohan playing her in a movie about her life story.
“Over my dead body,” the 60-year-old singer told the New York Times after learning that Lohan was interested in buying the rights to her life story in order to nab the lead role.
“She needs to stop doing drugs and get a grip. Then maybe we’ll talk,” added Nicks.
And she’s absolutely right.
I mean, we’re talking about someone with a personal life rockier than Sylvester Stalone’s IMDB filmography who has been addicted to more drugs than you or I can even name. Oh, and Lindsay Lohan too.
Hello everyone. My name’s Stevie and I’m a big ole scarf-swaddled pot calling a kettle black.
Honestly, at this point, Lohan is probably underqualified. She needs to be a basket case for about 15 more years, become addicted to about 40 more kinds of pills, and marry her best friend’s husband right after she kicks the bucket from Leukemia.
Taking a page from Nicks’ book, I’d like to remind all of you that if you can’t say anything nice, you shouldn’t say anything at all.

I thought I’d post this, not only because I’m sure that some of you care about this casting decision, but also because I find it a bit odd that the goofy, Jheri-curled yokel pictured above is going to play the head of a clan of Italian vampires in all the remaining Twilight movies.
I guess Dustin Diamond wasn’t available, so they had to book his lookalike.
Maybe it’ll be okay. He has a daughter with Kate Beckinsale, whom he met while working on the set of Underworld– which means he must be capable of at least some of the suaveness required to convincingly play the leader of an Italian vampire clan.
Maybe he’ll grow a beard? You’d be surprised by how much whiskey dick-ness can be overcome by growing some dark, manly facial hair.

Millionaire British songwriter and entrepreneur Pete Waterman is upset with Google over the paltry royalty checks he’s been receiving from them for Youtube’s play of Rick Astley’s song “Never Gonna Give You Up,” a tune that Waterman penned.
Waterman only receive[d] £11 (about $16) in royalties last year from Google, despite being the man behind the song that spawned the Internet phenomena known as Rick Rolling. The number might be a tad on the low side, but we’d hardly call it exploitation. PRS for Music (the royalty collection agency that Waterman employs) and Google are working to reach a new licensing agreement, but have yet to strike a deal regarding how royalties should be dolled out for streaming online content.
Waterman, who in 2004 was estimated to be worth £47 million (just shy of $69 million), recently held a press conference in which he compared his plight to that of exploited migrant labor in Dubai.
We’re talking about a man with so much scratch that he collects antique trains– not tiny model toy trains, but actual, full-sized locomotives. Show me a migrant laborer in Dubai who has one of the world’s largest collections of antique locomotives, and then maybe I’ll care that you’re only getting paid a little bit of free money for doing nothing.
To be fair however, this is Dubai we’re talking about. For all I know, their idea of poor, exploited migrant labor could be displaced former AIG executives forced to drink 10-year-old (instead of 40-year old) scotch and sleep in 5,000 square foot, 4-bedroom “shacks” with no bidet.

Does that dress look familiar? It should.

Beating up hookers just isn’t enough for Sham-wow and Slap-chop promoter Vince Shlomi. In his free time, he also abuses languages. Here, he butchers Spanish in a horrific attempt to sell more Sham-wows.
I used to chuckle every time I thought about the Sham-wow guy beating up a hooker… until I saw these pictures. (Warning: they’re a little disturbing.)
The blood and the swelling make it too real and disgusting. As funny as it seemed at the time, I don’t think I’ll be able to laugh about that again. Now, it just makes me feel sad for humanity.
