Madonna Shuts Down The Ageist Haters

madonna

Madonna is no longer a spring chicken, but that doesn’t mean she’s gotta stop being the Material Girl and pick up the knitting needles just because she’s 56 now. But Madonna’s not gonna take it. She’s gonna force herself on young men and then talk trash about them after. In other words, she’s gonna have FUN! And if you don’t like it, it’s just ‘cos you’re JEALOUS!


I feel so torn about this! On one hand, Madonna actually has a point. Just because you’re physically older doesn’t mean you FEEL older, and it has to be difficult dealing with the stigma of aging when you still feel like you’re 21 inside. On the other hand, Madonna is a hot ass mess and needs to tone down so much of her bullshit, not because she’s 56, but because it’d be a mess at ANY age.

Whose side are you on? Society’s, or Madonna’s?

David Duchovny Is Still A Bad Liar, Says He’s Not Dating Gillian Anderson

david duchovny gillian anderson kiss

Now ain’t this some serious bullshit. David Duchovny has decided to play dumb and completely deny that he and Gillian Anderson are dating – or that they ever were, for that matter. We all know it’s a bold-faced lie and I’m not having any of it. NOPE. Sorry.

From TV Line:

“The whole thing about Gillian and I dating is so weird. It’s never happened, it’s not going to happen, we’re friends,” he says. “I don’t want to rain on anybody’s parade, but no, it’s not gonna happen. It hasn’t happened.”

“I see Gillian, I kiss her hello. She’s my friend. If somebody gets a picture of that, if it’s on stage and she comes up to sing with me, I’m going to kiss her hello,” he says. “I wish the show would be enough. I don’t understand why people want more from Gillian and I. I really don’t.”

He adds: “You can have Mulder and Scully, and that’s gonna have to be enough.”

Yeah, for some reason, I’m just not buying it. Sure, Mulder & Scully were the original OTP and all the ‘shippers are gonna come out of the woodworks now that The X-Files is coming back, but COME ON. It’s been well known that these two have been fucking around on and off since the mid-90s, and why not? It was the height of their hotness! Though frankly, Gillian just keeps getting hotter with age, whereas the Duke has not been treated as kindly by Father Time. He should be so lucky!

I have to say, that picture above is from the concert Duchovny and his dad band played in NYC last week, where he somehow convinced Gillian to lower herself to playing tambourine on stage. It was PAINFUL. I felt like I was watching my mom and dad totally embarrass me in front of all my friends. But that’s beside the point – they’re still doing it.

Even Mariah Carey’s Label Boss L.A. Reid Doesn’t Think She’s A Hitmaker These Days

mariah carey la reid

Guys, does anyone else feel really bad for Mariah Carey? She’s been having a bit of a hard time of things lately. It’s like a woman gets to a certain age and isn’t what she used to be and suddenly showbiz doesn’t wanna know. Mariah is a LEGEND, and yet even L.A. Reid, who happens to be her label boss, doesn’t think she’s got what it takes to have another hit song. How messed up is that?

From Billboard:

You signed Carey to IDJ and now Epic. Six years since her last top 10 song, what do you expect from her new single, “Infinity”?

Mariah Carey made her first hit record in 1991. To even be on the radio at this point in her career is a huge accomplishment, because radio doesn’t cater to veteran artists or legends. Radio caters to in-the-moment stars. … Nobody that put out records 25 years ago is going to have a No. 1. Not Paul, Stevie, Bruce, Mick or Keith. Not Prince, not anyone. So if she can get on the radio, we’ve done damn good. Would we like to have a No. 1? F– yeah, I’m greedy. But it’s not realistic.

I mean, in a way, I guess we need to appreciate his honesty, because while it’s messed up, he’s pretty much telling the truth. Of course, to change that, the industry needs to change, and I just don’t think that’s going to happen. But Mariah is talented! Yeah, she’s “past her prime” in terms of being seen as sexy and therefore viable (which is dumb), and yeah, she may not have the range she once did, but she can still sing better than 90% of the people on the radio these days, so it’s messed up that she can’t catch a #1 break these days. Then again, they need to give her better damn songs. “Infinity” was a fucking disaster.

‘Girls Gone Wild’ Founder Joe Francis Has A Warrant Out For His Arrest

joe francis

The last time we heard from Joe Francis, he’d been arrested for getting into a fight – and this was after he lost his mansion and had to file for bankruptcy. Basically, things weren’t going well for Joe, and it seems like they’re only getting worse. It turns out there’s more trouble for him now, in the form of a federal arrest warrant over luxury vehicles he never turned over when he filed his bankruptcy.

From The Wall Street Journal:

On Tuesday, Judge Fernando M. Olguin of the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles issued an arrest warrant for Mr. Francis for failing to turn over two luxury cars to lawyers who sold the Girls Gone Wild name out of bankruptcy last year.

Mr. Francis has previously said that he can’t return the vehicles, a 2007 Cadillac Escalade and a 2012 Bentley Flying Spur, because a strip-club owner in Mexico—angry that several Girls Gone Wild promotions fell through—took them, according to court papers.

Mr. Francis’s bankruptcy lawyer declined to comment on the arrest warrant.

Joe is living in Mexico now, so unless he’s extradited, he won’t be going to jail anytime soon.

Judge Klein also ruled that Mr. Francis should pay $5,000 a day until he complies with her ruling. By Bankruptcy Beat’s math, Mr. Francis could owe at least $1.3 million in fines. Mr. Francis’s lawyer disputes this amount.

But here’s the deal – if he’s bankrupt, where the hell is he going to get $1.3 million? That money will never be paid to anyone, so it’s a bit of a waste of time. Extradite him and prosecute him/put him in jail, or just be done with it.

Coldplay Wrote A ‘Game Of Thrones’ Musical & Peter Dinklage Is In It

peter dinklage

If there were two things in pop culture that I would never put together, it would have to be Game of Thrones and Coldplay. It just… doesn’t seem to fit. And yet, here we are, living in a world where Coldplay wrote a Game of Thrones musical for the charity broadcast Red Nose Day, and they even got Peter Dinklage to star in it!

If you’re not familiar with Red Nose Day, it’s been happening in the UK for years, and this is the first year the US is doing it. Basically, it’s a ton of comedic sketches featuring a ton of celebrities that come together in an effort to raise money for charities that help alleviate poverty. It’s a good time for all, and there are some pretty big names participating this year.

First, here’s the preview for the GoT musical:

Looks pretty amazing, right? The broadcast will air tonight at 8pm EST on NBC and will include appearances by Will Ferrell, Reese Witherspoon, Jodie Foster, Neil Patrick Harris, Pharrell Williams, Liam Neeson, Nick Offerman, Elizabeth Banks, Yvette Nicole Brown, Benedict Cumberbatch, Helen Mirren, and Ian McKellen.

Pamela Anderson Goes ‘Psycho’ For New PETA Ad

psycho pamela anderson PETA

Pamela Anderson has been a pretty staunch support of PETA for a while and has done several ads for the animal rights organization over the years, so it’s no surprise she’s now released a new one in which she is – yet again – got naked, as you can see above. This time around, it’s a Psycho re-make, which… I don’t really get in relation to the issue at hand, but whatever!

The California water situation is SERIOUS right now, but I’m a meat eater so while I can get behind this message in theory, at the end of the day… yknow. That being said, I do think it’s important to look at these issues, I just don’t really trust PETA to be the organization to do it, to be honest.

But good for Pam. She’s still got it!
