Steve Harvey Has The Funniest Game Show Moment in History

Written by , Posted in General

  

It’s impossible to decipher whether the family featured on Steve Harvey’s ‘Family Feud’ is laughing with him or simply too dense to understand the severity of their stupidity. Perhaps they performed poorly under pressure and their brains shut down? Watch below to see one of the funniest game show moments of all time, and then weep for this family who given every opportunity in history, still managed to base their answer on vocal inflection rather than the actual word. If you aren’t a fan of Steve Harvey, you will be now.

The Super Bowl Halftime Show — My Thoughts

Written by , Posted in General

It would be wildly unfair to compare Coldplay to Beyonce and Bruno Mars. First, Chris Martin is in an actual band and writes his own music (that’s a hit at Beyonce, not Mars, since Mars does in fact co-write his songs). Second, his songs have longstanding impact, and the guy doesn’t dance. Why? Because he doesn’t need to. Anyone who has attended a Coldplay concert is well aware of Martin’s live-performance skills, and in fact — I became a fan only AFTER seeing them live for the first time via my friend’s extra ticket. Having said all that, it’s the Super Bowl, and if you can’t dance, you better call upon people who can. Stay in your lane, and go to others for the glitter. And who better to bring it than Beyonce? Only Queen Bey  can use the Super Bowl as a venue to debut a new song, executing insane choreography, great costumes, and dominating more than just the stage itself. Bruno Mars also deserves accolades, but even the Uptown Funkmaster himself couldn’t hold his own in the Beyonce dance-off, using his turn to simply tilt his head and flutter across the stage with his arms behind his back. Seriously Bruno, you couldn’t push yourself just a tad harder with the choreography? It might not be Chris Martin’s lane, but it’s certainly yours. But Bruno also brought it, and just about anyone would look lesser next to our eternal Single Lady. Watch below to see one of the best halftime shows I’ve seen in some time, and then enjoy some very funny tweets at Chris Martin’s expense. It might be mean spirited, but something tells me Martin can take a good joke.

Why Amber Rose’s Ass-Play Dig at Kanye Was Homophobic

Written by , Posted in General

When Amber Rose indicated Kanye West might prefer ass-play in the bedroom, I was bothered, but my objection was more about the childish exposure of his personal preferences rather than the latent homophobia on hand (pun intended). When Kanye West denied it, I also felt uneasy. First, what’s wrong with ass-play? To each his own. And second, why dignify the “dig” with a public declaration.
It wasn’t until Andy Cohen came forward and expressed moderate outrage at the idea that a penchant for ass-play makes one perverse, that I began to think outside the box (pun also intended). It was then brought to my attention by a certain music insider that Kanye West is in fact the worst person to be involved in this exchange, given that he’s actually an LGBT advocate. Ever wonder why you don’t hear the word “faggot” in hip -hop songs anymore? Well . . . we have Kanye to thank. During an interview with MTV ten years ago, West called upon the hip-hop community to cut out its anti-gay antics, saying hip-hop “has always been about “speaking your mind and about breaking down barriers, but everyone in hip-hop discriminates against gay people.” He was one of the first to speak out, and its use has drastically declined since.

So what happens when the man who advocates for equal rights is exposed as someone who also enjoys some digital delights? Perhaps he should have just remained quiet, closed his bedroom doors and continued to do what he likes, but the far better move would be to unite with Andy Cohen and call out the comment for what it is — homophobic.

Did Andy Cohen Just Call Amber Rose a Bigot?

Written by , Posted in General

  
When Amber Rose exposed Kanye West’s love for a certain sexual act in response to Kanye dragging her into his fight with Wiz Khalifa, many things occurred to me, none of which were that it was insulting to gay people. But leave it to Andy Cohen, the man on the pulse of pop culture to provide a little clarity. When asked about the incident, he said, “I actively don’t care. I just think it’s interesting that it seems like sticking a finger up someone’s butt is the biggest insult these days. That seems like a cultural sign of the times.” And there you have it.

“Aunt Vivian” Blasts Will Smith . . . AGAIN

Written by , Posted in General

 If you’d like to prove you’re normal and easy to work with, referring to yourself in the third person is probably not the best way to go. When Janet Hubert visited ‘The Real’ to “clear the air” about her contentious past with Will Smith and her exit from ‘Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ (which resulted in her character being replaced by another actor), she sounded just as angry as she did in a previous interview when she said, “There will never be a reunion … as I will never do anything with an a–hole like Will Smith. He is still an egomaniac and has not grown up. This constant reunion thing will never, ever happen in my lifetime unless there is an apology … he doesn’t know the word.” Will Smith himself has addressed the controversy over the years, once telling an Atlanta radio station that “Janet Hubert wanted the show to be ‘The Aunt Viv of Bel Air Show,” and she once said, “I’ve been in the business for 10 years and this snotty-nosed punk comes along and gets a show.”

Caitlyn Jenner’s New Interview: “Kris Knew About My Transition When We Met”

Written by , Posted in General

There’s a lot of tension between Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner as to just how much Kris knew about Bruce’s gender issues when they first began dating, and Kris has adamantly insisted on her ignorance. According to a new interview with Caitlyn, she was a 36B when she first met Kris, and she actually had her breasts removed at the time. The rules, Caitlyn said, were that she could dress as a woman while traveling, but not in their marital home.

If Caitlyn’s account of the facts are accurate, I can imagine that Kris would face questions she is not prepared to answer. Was she so enamored with the prospect of marrying an Olympic gold medalist that she turned a blind eye to his gender issues? Was she so in love that she decided to simply look the other direction in hopes it was just a passing urge? Who knows. I’d imagine that Caitlyn is sick of Kris “playing the victim,” given some of their on-screen interactions, and if she did in fact know, then there’s far less sympathy headed her direction. Watch Caitlyn confess to the curious timeline below.

Heather McDonald Apologizes: Asks Chelsea Handler For Forgiveness

Written by , Posted in General

You have to hand it to Heather McDonald. She’s not a star that belongs in front of the camera, and because she won’t accept it, she’s clawed her way to the comfortable F-list, and she’s extending it far beyond her fifteen minutes by biting off her former boss’s fame. Given the success of Chelsea Handler’s show, I’m guessing McDonald is a talented comedy writer, but that doesn’t mean she’s deserving of the same stardom as others.

For those that have not followed the story, McDonald bad-mouthed Handler on a podcast and indicated that she was afraid of her former boss who she claimed easily dropped her friends and mistreated her staff. Handler fought back and accused McDonald of selling stories about Handler’s personal life to the tabloids.

In a she said/she said war of the words, I’m siding with Handler for a variety of reasons. First, the kind of woman who would sell tabloid stories is the same kind of woman that would publicly bad-mouth the woman who cut her paycheck. Second, if Handler lied, that’s clear cut defamation, and she’s too smart for that. And third, Us Weekly gave McDonald curious coverage that I questioned at the time, and if McDonald did exchange stories for an exclusive feature in the rag mag, then it’s explained. Watch her back peddle to Ross Matthews in the video below.

Grease: Live! Watch All the Performances Now

Written by , Posted in General

FOX joined the live television musical game, and if the early ratings are any indication, they hit it out of the ballpark. With a strong cast that specializes in acting, singing, AND dancing, they gave the audience everything they wanted, and apparently more. As an observational aside, I always find it interesting when the casting and costumes emulate the original actors that played the characters. It’s one thing to copy a story, it’s another to copy the casting decisions. Is Julianne Hough playing Sandy or is she playing Olivia Newton John’s version of Sandy? And is Vanessa Hudgens really playing Rizzo, or is she dressed up like Stockard Channing playing Rizzo? Speaking of Vanessa, as always, she stole the show. Having said that, everyone came to play, and it showed in each performance. Also, it’s refreshing to see original television offerings that bring families together. Watch the performances after the jump.
