Zoe Saldana Says Hollywood Should Pay For Childcare

zoe saldana

Zoe Saldana is pretty well known (in my book, at least) for saying dumb things more often than not, so I’m not at all surprised at the latest bit of horseshit that’s come out of her mouth during an interview. As you know, Zoe recently gave birth to twins and she’s loving being a mom. She also loves being famous and getting paid millions of dollars to be mediocre in movies. But that’s not really enough compensation. Actually, Zoe thinks Hollywood needs to be paying for childcare for her kids, since she’s making such a huge sacrifice by gracing us with her presence in Hollywood.

From USA Today:

Still, studios “spend more money sometimes ‘perking’ up male superstars in a movie,” she says, paying for private jets, a coterie of assistants and bodyguards or booking “a really phat penthouse or them staying in a yacht instead of them staying on land.”

“But then a woman comes in going, ‘OK, I have a child. You’re taking me away from my home. You’re taking my children away from their home. And you’re going to make me work a lot more hours than I usually would if I was home. Therefore, I would have to pay for this nanny for more hours — so I kind of need that. And they go, ‘Nope, we don’t pay for nannies.’ “

Okay, here’s the thing. Do I think companies in general should be more supportive of working parents (not just mothers) and, if possible, provide care while the parents work. HOWEVER, it’s pretty fucking rich that this woman is a multi-millionaire WHO ALREADY HAS A NANNY and is seriously bitching that a movie studio that’s already paying her an exorbitant amount of money won’t also pay for her childcare, which she would have anyway, even if she wasn’t working. Are you kidding me right now?

Of course, she isn’t campaigning for working mothers making minimum wage and struggling to make ends meet get childcare. No, she’s just worried about herself because she has to part with a few dollars of her tons of money to pay someone to look after her kids.  Ugh, Zoe Saldana is THE WORST.

The New Madonna Video Is Really, Really Sad

bitch im madonna

It’s a pretty sad state of affairs for Madonna these days. Instead of being content with the fact that she’s an absolute legend and going out on a high note, she’s instead tried to cling to the whole ‘young popstar’ thing by competing (attempting to compete?) with the kids. Since that hasn’t worked out all that well, she’s decided that the old saying of “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” is true, and she’s copied off Taylor Swift to create a star-studded video for her new single, “Bitch, I’m Madonna”. And yes, that’s a serious title.

The video has cameos from pretty much everyone, from Katy Perry to Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, and the list goes on and on. Most of those appearances weren’t filmed on location (seemingly only Rita Ora and Diplo had holes in their schedule to actually show up for this shit show), and the whole thing just reeks of desperation. I don’t even know what else to say about it than that. Oh, also, please keep in mind she premiered this BS on TIDAL, which is subscription-only.  Well, it was. I think people “bitched” enough that it’s now on YouTube, hyuck hyuck. BYE, MADONNA.

Sean Penn & Charlize Theron Call Off Engagement

sean penn charlize theron

It was only 7 months ago that Charlize Theron and Sean Penn got engaged after they’d been dating for about a year. Unfortunately, I’m not here to tell you that they’ve finally set a date and are about to exchange vows. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. It turns out, the engagement is over, as is their relationship. That’s right: Peron (that’s totally my fake name for them that I just made up right this second) are DUNZO. Praise the lord!

One insider tells US Weekly that the high-profile pair, who got together in December 2013, decided that their romance was over following their most recent jaunt to the Cannes Film Festival in the south of France. The source tells Us that Theron, 39, was the one to break things off with the fellow Oscar winner.

Okay, so Theron’s the one who ended things. Do we want to take bets on why? My guess is that his abusive streak reared its head. This is the man who beat Madonna for 9 hours straight, don’t forget (among other unsavoury experiences, I’m sure). Thankfully Charlize has sense and got the hell out before that shit became legal.

Newsflash, women of the world: Never go anywhere near Sean Penn.

Bobbi Kristina’s Aunt Leolah Brown Unleashes Facebook Rant Against Pat Houston

bobbi kristina

Pat Houston is one of the co-executors of Bobbi Kristina‘s estate while she’s in the hospital, alongside Bobby Brown. And while reports recently leaked that Bobbi Kristina was being taken out of hospital and will go home to pass away peacefully since she’s made no improvements since being admitted to hospital in January. These are lies apparently perpetuated by the Houston side of the family, and Bobbi’s aunt Leolah Brown is not having it anymore. She unleashed a righteous rant on Facebook, as you do, and here’s he beginning:

The BIG lie has been told again that my niece Bobbi Kristina is going to be brought home..only to leave us. (I heard it on the radio about 6am this morning while I was traveling). Please ignore any of these LIES coming from the media.

KNOW FOR CERTAINT THAT:

BOBBI KRISTINA BROWN IS “NOT” ON LIFE SUPPORT ANYMORE AND SHE HAS SINCE THE BEGINNING AND AND IS CONTINUING TODAY TO IMPROVE. AND WE WILL NEVER GIVE UP ON HER! HELL NO! NOT ONE BROWN!

FURTHERMORE, PAT HOUSTON IS NOT ALLOWED NO WHERE NEAR BOBBI KRISTINA, “PER BOBBI KRISTINA’S REQUEST.”

Please be sure and know that, ONLY my brother Bobby Brown and my brother Tommy Brown who is Bobbi Kristina’s father and uncle, has gotten Bobbi Kristina the best care possible and that she is indeed continuing to improve in-spite of the LIES being told. AND WE THE BROWN’S ARE CONTINUING TO PRAY TO GOD FOR HER RECOVERY.

I honestly cannot post the entire thing here because it’s basically the length of a novel, but I’ll embed the whole thing in case you have about 12 hours to spare. I’ll just say this: This whole thing is an absolute mess and Bobbi Kristina needs some kinda peace in her life, whether it’s in this world or not.

FB Friends & Fam,The BIG lie has been told again that my niece Bobbi Kristina is going to be brought home..only to…

The Rock Sideswipes Fan’s Truck, Remains Adorable

the rock instagram

I can’t say I love The Rock enough, because my love for him is just that powerful. He’s the sweetest sweetie that ever sweeted (YOU HEARD ME) and no one will convince me otherwise. It’s not a sexual attraction or anything like that (he’s so not my type in so many ways), but he’s just such a genuinely nice, decent guy and I don’t know anyone who DOESN’T like him. Anyway, this story will make you like him even more! Basically, he was driving to a set yesterday morning when he swiped some random dude’s truck because he was too busy singing to whatever song he was blasting. He stopped, saw the guy coming back to his car, and tried to give the guy money, but the guy wouldn’t accept it. Instead, they took a pic together and Dwayne told everyone on Instagram what happened.

Here’s what he wrote:

Here’s a fun story to start your week off… I’m driving to set in my pick up truck – music blasting – I’m singing away like I’m having a one man party in my truck – then I hear a loud BANG. What the hell..? Look in my rear view and see I sideswiped another pick up that was parked in the street and destroyed the side mirror. First thing I thought was, “Aw shit.. someone’s not gonna be happy..”. I flipped a U-turn and drove back to scene. Just as I got out of my truck a guy was walking across the street to his truck. I said “Sir, is this your truck?”. He stopped and stared at me for a good 5 seconds, looked around his neighborhood, looked back at me and “Yes it is. Why?”. I said “Well, sorry to tell ya I sideswiped it and knocked the hell outta your mirror and may have done even more damage. You give me your info and I’ll leave you mine and I’ll take care of everything”. He stared at me again, cocked his head sideways and said..”Uhhh.. Are you The Rock?”. I said “Yup”. He broke out into a huge smile and said “Wow, this is gonna be an awesome story!”. I started belly laughing at that, then he started laughing and before you know it we’re both standing in the middle of the street pointing to his mirror and laughing like two ol’ crazy buddies. I checked back in with him a few days later and he refused to accept any money and said he fixed the damage himself. Want to thank Mr. Audie Bridges of Wakefield, Mass. for being so cool about the whole thing. Life is funny cause you never know who you’re gonna run into… and sure as hell never know who’s truck you’re gonna sideswipe while driving to work.

I mean, come on. That story is adorable. More celebrities – shit, more HUMANS – could take a note from The Rock’s book and treat people with the kindness and respect they deserve more often. The world would be a much better place for it.

‘Big Brother’ Has A Transgender Houseguest This Year

audrey middleton

Big Brother is an absolute cesspool of the worst trash America can produce, and I haven’t watched it in several seasons, ever since I stopped having to cover it for another job. They bring all the racists, bigots, homophobes and every other awful type of person on national TV and encourage them to be horrible for the sake of ratings and it’s all really messed up. Well, now CBS is trying to turn things around, by capitalizing on Caitlyn Jenner‘s recent reveal and putting a transgender contestant in the Big Brother house.

From TMZ:

MZ has learned Audrey will become the first transgender on the U.S. version of the show, and she plans to use the program as a showcase … similar to what Caitlyn Jenner has been doing.

Audrey grew up in a small Georgia town as a boy, and life was far from easy. We’re told when she transitioned several years ago, her family had a hard time accepting it, but they’re now fully supportive and on board.

The 25-year-old was inspired by Caitlyn Jenner’s story, but she’s also just a big fan of “Big Brother.”

It’s a dicey move for producers, given the show has had its share of racist and homophobic houseguests. The show runs a livestream 24/7 and things happen. But we’re told it will all become a teaching moment and Audrey is pumped.

To be honest, I think it’s great that there’s representation for the transgender community on TV, I just don’t necessarily know that Big Brother is the best place. Then again, minority groups have to deal with prejudice on a daily basis in real life, and if Audrey thinks she can take it, then that’s amazing and she should be applauded.

Kanye West Isn’t A ‘Frozen’ Fan, I Guess

kanye west frozen

North West got to celebrate her birthday at the happiest place on earth: Disneyland. It was a real party, and she even got to see the live singalong show based on her favourite movie, Frozen. Awesome, right? Well, not to Kanye West, apparently, because he slept through the whole thing and got called out by the cast on social media for his rudeness afterwards. Uh oh!

From TMZ:

A Disney employee noticed him, umm … resting his eyes, and later said on FB and Twitter … “when you perform for the Kardashian family for North’s birthday…and Kanye sleeps through the whole show.”

Our park sources tell us the employee was the woman who played Elsa. We’re also told Kanye passed out for the entire performance, which is only 25 minutes. So, kinda perfect time for a nap.

I’m sure Kanye isn’t the first father to ever fall asleep in a Disney show, but when you’re famous and it’s your kid’s birthday and literally, it’s only 30 minutes, you’re THAT tired that you have to fall asleep? Give me a break. That being said, I bet you that employee gets fired now, so not necessarily a good look to air someone out on Twitter.

I’m sure Nori had a good time, though!
