I always knew these hookers were a detriment to society. A few months ago, I was perplexed why people insist on “Keeping Up With Kardashians“. Now we know why they receive such high ratings… prison inmates are forced to watch them. In a laugh-out loud frivolous lawsuit, a prisoner at the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections is claiming emotional distress.
According to TMZ.com, D.J. Goodson claims he was forced to watch “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and “Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami” and developed “extreme emotional distress” due to their outrageous antics. How effing funny is that? His claim also states he’s permanently scarred from being subjected to domestic abuse (a boxing match on the show featuring Kim), emotional abuse (rantings courtesy of Kourtney and “paramour Scott”) and racism (Khloe referring to a baby doll as “the black baby”).
Rihanna just released her new single “Only Girl (In The World)” from her upcoming album, and hasn’t even debuted the music video for it. Color everyone shocked, when a new video leaked online and it wasn’t for “Only Girl”, but rather a single no one had even heard of yet. “Who’s That Chick” is a scorching collaboration with David Guetta and somehow found its way online weeks/months ahead of schedule. Perhaps it’s not even from her album, and maybe part of a forthcoming project from Guetta. Doesn’t really matter, because its her fans that win. Video and song kick ass. (UPDATE: Rihanna explains what the song and video are for. See the end of this post for deets.)
The visual for the song is a cornucopia of beautiful, bold and loud colors , which is appropriate considering her new album is titled “LOUD!”. I’m so glad my happy little RiRi is back. Me no likey the dark brooding one found in “Rated R“. David Guetta proves once again, why he’s so in demand. The euro dance-tinged track is upbeat, infectious and danceable. The accompanying music video is equally fun and whimsical. It’s Aqua’s “Barbie Girl” meets “Alice in Wonderland” meets 80s fluffy pop on acid. In other words, FANTASMISTICAL. Not a real word, but you know what I mean.
Devastatingly beautiful. Those two words perfectly describe Lisa Genova’s novel Still Alice. Before I start pouring out my soul in regards to this piece of literature, I want to give props to my new book-soul mate Lindsay. We met on a trip to Mexico back in March, and if you recall my recent review of The Book Thief, that too was her recommendation. Lindsay and I had a chance to catch up and chat at a dinner a few weeks ago when we had a mini trip reunion with a few of the gals from the trip. As always our conversation turned to gushing about books and she steered me towards Still Alice.
Naturally I was drawn to find the book immediately as her first recommendation truly rocked my world, from a literary standpoint, and I was hoping for another dose of brilliance. Once again, my girl came through, with the help of Lisa Genova’s words. The book focuses on the life of Alice Howland, a professor at Harvard with her Ph. D. in Psychology. The book opens by painting the picturesque lifestyle of a woman working at Harvard, adored by thousands, including her three loving children. As time slowly progresses she notices subtle changes in your day to day life, the simple things seeming to slip through the cracks undetected.
Daddy’s little cocaine princess, Paris Hilton, gets a slap on the wrist for what could have been felony cocaine possession which occurred in Las Vegas on August 27th. She is going to apparently plead guilty to “drug possession and obstructing an officer,” which are both misdemeanors. That way she gets to avoid two consecutive six month-sentences in the Clark County Detention Center, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The paper continues, explaining that she will instead get one year of probation and has to “complete a drug abuse program, pay a $2,000 fine and serve 200 hours of community service.” As if that’ll teach her. She’ll probably make the 200 hours of community service into a reality show.
Earlier this week, it was Big Brother 12′s Britney’s whose house burned to the ground. Now, former talk show host Ricki Lake‘s Malibu rental home has burned to the ground this morning. The home was located on Pacific Coast Highway, and as a result of the fire that had flames that rose up to 30 feet in the air, the road was shut down for almost two hours.
“The fire broke out at about 7:18 AM PT and was declared ‘knocked down’ at 7:51 AM,” according to TMZ. Luckily, there were no injuries to Ricki, her family, or her dog. Ricki lake is divorced from her husband, Rob Sussman.
The Ricki Lake show debuted on September 13, 1993 and ended in August, 2004. Recently, Ricki Lake appeared in one episode of Drop Dead Diva. She also has been recently known for her show “Charm School with Ricki Lake,” which is a VH1 reality show where she is the headmistress of a school that gives bad girls a second chance. They must change their old ways and learn improvement through acts of charity work. Maybe one of the bad girls burned the house down? Yikes, I hope not…
After arriving in LA with Katy Perry, Russell Brand got into a little scuffle with a photographer who got a little too grabby. Russell, wearing a black t-shirt that read “Good god, Let me breathe a little”, got into a verbal argument with the pap hound and then allegedly began to hit him. The victim then proceeded to make a private persons arrest. LAX airport police responded to what was being stated as “an assault involving a celebrity and a commercial photographer”. Once they responded, Russell was officially arrested and taken away for booking.
Here is a good example of why white girls, alcohol, and freestyle rapping most definitely do not mix. MADR (Mothers Against Drunk Rapping) present their new PSA: “Retard Face: Why Alcohol and Rapping Don’t Mix”. It’s pretty funny to begin with, but then it goes to a whole new level. It’s actually a good example of how in our own mind, you are better at things when you’re drunk. Like singing or dancing…or in this case…rapping.
It’s like what Ke$ha would be like as a mother (God forbid she breeds).
“MADR has worked tirelessly through outreach and education to prevent further trauma to well-intentioned drunk white people who try and “ghetto it up” when, really, they just don’t know any better.”
How appropriate that the new Zack Snyder film about owls has its title soundtrack single sung by Owl City. To The Sky debuted on YouTube and Owl City’s official site yesterday. The song was first released on September 1st and has created hundreds of Owl City fans. Everyone remembers how Fireflies took flight last year and became the song everyone loved to hate or secretly loved.
To The Sky has been said to be perfect lead off for the film Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole. Critics are raving that it has the perfect blend of synth pop and melodies to compliment a soundtrack to a film such as this. The video depicts singer Adam Young writing and recording the track while having the film play on in the background. In the end, Adam Young is transformed into an owl.
