Banning Twitter Trolls Does Not Violate the First Amendment

Written by , Posted in General

If Instagram can filter a nude picture off my feed within seconds, then Twitter can do the same for verbal harassment. Leslie Jones is just one of many stars that have complained about abuse on their platform, and while some might suggest banning vile trolls violates free speech, I’d encourage them to take an actual class on the constitution, because twitter is not the government, and a private company is free to set anti-racist rules and standards, and to ban online bullying.Don’t believe me? Try running through the halls of the private company you work for shouting the N word. When they fire you, attempt to cite the first amendment.
As for why this electronic medium incites what seems to be an alarming number of a–holes, I think the answer is clear, and it has nothing to do with anonymity. Has anyone been to high school? Because my high school had a certain percentage of jerks, and I can only assume they are the types of people who would take to twitter to abuse others. When you expand your reach, you are bound to encounter bullies. It’s just simple math. And if celebrities don’t have anyone to take a first pass at the unwelcome comments, then they’re in the trenches, and perhaps they should get out.

How Kim Kardashian Just Tanked Taylor Swift’s Career

Written by , Posted in General


Is there anything better than watching two rich divas duke it out, especially when one such diva has perpetuated a squeaky clean image of propriety? Such was the case when Kim Kardashian West boldly released footage of her husband, Kanye West, receiving verbal approval from Taylor Swift for using her name in his song, ‘Famous,’ which is featured in his most recent record, ‘The Life of Pablo.’ During the phone call, Kanye can be heard reciting the lyric, “To all my southside n—-s that know me best, I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex,” to which Taylor responds, “it’s like a compliment, kind of,” and “It’s obviously very tongue in cheek.” She then mentioned the flowers sent to her by Kanye and bragged about the amount of likes the photo received. 

Kim Kardashian had previously proclaimed Swift’s consent to the lyric, and Swift’s team countered with condescension, implying that Kim was merely her husband’s puppet, saying:

Taylor does not hold anything against Kim Kardashian as she recognizes the pressure Kim must be under and that she is only repeating what she has been told by Kanye West. However, that does not change the fact that much of what Kim is saying is incorrect. Kanye West and Taylor only spoke once on the phone while she was on vacation with her family in January of 2016 and they have never spoken since. Taylor has never denied that conversation took place. It was on that phone call that Kanye West also asked her to release the song on her Twitter account, which she declined to do. Kanye West never told Taylor he was going to use the term ‘that bitch’ in referencing her. A song cannot be approved if it was never heard. Kanye West never played the song for Taylor Swift. Taylor heard it for the first time when everyone else did and was humiliated. Kim Kardashian’s claim that Taylor and her team were aware of being recorded is not true, and Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone.

Kim also claimed that Swift was set to reveal her approval at the Grammys, but backtracked, which can also be heard in the conversation when Swift says, “right after the song comes out I’m going to be on a Grammys red carpet and they’re going to ask me about it and I’ll be like, ‘He called me.'” Swift immediately countered on twitter, insisting that although she can be heard approving the sex line, she cannot be heard approving the words, “that bitch,” as if the tiny dichotomy makes a difference. Plus, her entire Grammy speech was about Kanye wrongfully taking credit for her success, not about the misogyny of the word “bitch.” In fact, Swift also says, “You honestly didn’t know who I was before that. It doesn’t matter that I sold 7 million of that album before you did that which is what happened, you didn’t know who I was before that. It’s fine.” I can only assume that’s in reference to the line about making her famous. And though she has tried to worm out of this by claiming she was never “played the song,” for approval, as one twitter user rightfully pointed out, she did not call John Mayer for approval of “Dear John,” nor did she call the plethora of other exes she bashed in her music using very specific references to their identity. Furthermore, most rappers don’t call for approval at all. Ask Eminem.

To quote Katy Perry, Taylor Swift is “Regina George in sheep’s clothing,” and she’s been exposed. It’s time to stop attacking Kanye and open our eyes to the Swift machine that is now breaking down. Having said that, it must be noted that an industry insider friend of mine is insistent that this is one big publicity stunt involving all three parties, and it’s spinning too far out of control. He predicts that there will be a very public amends, followed by an appearance by Kanye on Taylor’s upcoming record, which is all part of the master plan or long game. It’s certainly possible, and time will tell.

Kim Kardashian Talks Taylor Swift on KUWTK

Written by , Posted in General


Kim Kardashian almost had me in the clip below, but she took an unfortunate left turn when she once again defended Kanye’s infamous Taylor Swift stage-crash. In reference to Swift “playing the victim,” Kim explains that she felt it was time to defend Kanye over a lyric in ‘The Life of Pablo’ in which Kanye claims that he “made that bitch famous.” According to Swift, she did not approve the line, but team Kardashian-West insists otherwise. It’s still unclear whether Kim personally witnessed Swift’s approval or simply heard a second-hand version from Kanye. I agree that Swift is humorless, takes herself too seriously, and is a bit of a hypocrite, but Kim should have simply stopped at “Kanye should not continue to be punished.”

Warren Beatty Writes and Directs ‘Rules Don’t Apply’ – Watch Trailer Now

Written by , Posted in General


In one of the strongest trailers I’ve seen in some time, “Rules Don’t Apply” follows an aspiring young actress (Lily Collins), her driver (Alden Ehrenreich), and the eccentric Howard Hughes, whom they work for. With Warren Beatty as Hughes and the films writer, director, and producer, we have a lot to look forward to. Plus, Annette Bening and Alec Baldwin are also in the cast, so they can’t miss. Watch a trailer below.

Jennifer Lopez Performs New Song on Fallon . . . In a Cape

Written by , Posted in General

While I usually like an over-the-top, sexy, attention-grabbing Jennifer Lopez, it feels wildly inappropriate while performing “Love Make The World Go Round” with Lin-Manuel Miranda for the Orlando shorting victims. She should not be dressed sexy on any level, and she should not embellish her performance with look-at-me facial expressions. I get it. That’s JLO, and we need to live our lives to “celebrate love,” but there’s a time and a place for this kind of display, and she, like Lin-Manuel Miranda, should be wearing jeans a t-shirt. Perhaps it’s just a styling issue and JLO”S team can’t bend outside of their comfort zone given the circumstance, but this is a major misfire. Watch below.

Jennifer Aniston is Fed Up: Writes Article for Huffington Post

Written by , Posted in General

The Tabloids have once again speculated that Jennifer Aniston, at the age of 47, is pregnant, and the A-list actress has had enough. In an article for the Huffington Post, she emphasized society’s unfair standards toward women, saying:

This past month in particular has illuminated for me how much we define a woman’s value based on her marital and maternal status. The sheer amount of resources being spent right now by press trying to simply uncover whether or not I am pregnant (for the bajillionth time… but who’s counting) points to the perpetuation of this notion that women are somehow incomplete, unsuccessful, or unhappy if they’re not married with children. 

Aniston has always been a role model to me. She met someone, fell in love, got divorced, and then waited a very long time to settle down. It didn’t seem to top her list of priorities, and she wanted to be sure she found the right partner. She would not be pressured, pushed, or judged, and she would not allow the press to ask invasive questions about her future. Good job, Jennifer.

Team Swift. v. Team Harris: Songwriting Feud Surfaces

Written by , Posted in General


Team Swift just took down Calvin Harris with a riveting revelation, and Harris is making a meager attempt to fight back. TMZ broke the news that Rihanna’s hit new song, “This is What You Came For,” was in fact written by Swift, not Harris, and the once-secret fact was in retaliation for Harris trashing Swift as a cheater in the press. TMZ furthered that Swift has the rights to revoke the song, but she won’t, unlike Harris, who prevented Rita Ora from singing his song post-breakup. Harris said that while Taylor wrote the lyrics, he wrote the music, and it’s unfair to suggest otherwise. He also encourages her to focus on her new relationship with Tom Hiddleston.

I hope Calvin Harris learned a lesson here. First, HE STARTED IT. He is the one who initially said he got “bored” of their relationship and simply wasn’t “feeling the spark anymore.” He is the one who leaked the fact that HE dumped HER, which would once again circulate the image of a sad single girl who can’t keep a man. If you’re going to play, bring your gloves. Don’t get hit in the face and then baby-cry about how you’ve been had. Listen to the song in question below. It’s good.

Jordan Rodgers Reveals Relationship With Brother Aaron

Written by , Posted in General


Many have long suspected a rift between ‘The Bachelorette’s’ Jordan Rodgers and his brother, NFL star Aaron Rodgers, and some have attributed it to Aaron and Olivia’s friendship with Jordan’s ex-girlfriend, with whom he allegedly cheated on. On last night’s episode Jordan made it clear to JoJo that although he has a great relationship with his entire family, Aaron does not, and it’s just how Aaron chose to “do life.” As an aside, does anyone on this show have an actual job? Watch a clip below.
