USC Law School v. Robert Kardashian: “He’s Not Invited”

Written by , Posted in General

When Robert Kardashian tweeted that he’d be attending law school in the fall, followed by, “#UniversityofSouthernCal #Trojans #FightOn,” I naturally assumed, like all media outlets, that the law school in question is USC. But not so fast. When USC got wind of Kardashian’s hashtag proclamation, they quickly spoke up, saying, “News to us. Wish him luck at the law school he’s really attending.” And there you have it. More twisted truths from the Kardashians.

Elton John on Madonna: “She Looks Like a Fairground Stripper”

Written by , Posted in General

“She’s such a nightmare. Her career is over. Her tour has been a disaster. She’s been so horrible to Gaga . . . . If Madonna had any common sense she would have made another Ray of Light, stayed away from the dance stuff, and just been a great pop singer and made great pop records, which she does brilliantly. But no. She had to prove that she was like . . . she looks like a fairground stripper.” Elton John on Madonna’s latest tour antics. Also — I’d like to take a moment to ask the question no one seems to have an answer to: What the FU*K happened between these two lunatics to justify this kind of vitriolic hatred?

Is Justin Bieber a Douchebag? — All Signs Point to Yes

Written by , Posted in General

Here at The Dishmaster, I make lots of predictions and then link to those posts at a later date to brag. So get ready for another one, because here goes: I predict Justin Bieber will spend himself into bankruptcy by the time he turns forty. Why? When asked about Prince William for the U.K.’s Rollercoaster magazine, Bieber commented on his hair loss, saying, “I mean, there are things to prevent that nowadays, like Propecia . . . . I don’t know why he doesn’t just get those things, those products. You just take Propecia and your hair grows back. Have you not got it over here?” Though I don’t wish him harm, he’s reeking of washed-up-child-star-syndrome. And we know how that story ends.

NBC Attacked Ann Curry’s Style? — Good Work

Written by , Posted in General

If fashion didn’t matter, then a lot of people would be out of work. Hear that Ann Curry? The former Today Show anchor had some key quotes exposed from her recent Ladies Home Journal interview, which apparently shed light on her squabbles with NBC. Curry said her bosses wanted her to die her grey hair, and despite their insistence that she wear heels, she wore “clogs and flats” instead. Also — she refuses to die her hair because she wants to “honor [her] family by looking exactly as they did as they got older.” Sigh . . . where do I begin? Before feminists everywhere wave their disapproving fingers in NBC’s face, I’d encourage them to wave it in Ann’s face instead. Workplace fashion exists everywhere, not just on The Today Show. And clogs are gross. If your going to be on a big time show — then dress like a big-timer.

Joan Rivers Protests Costco — Genius!

Written by , Posted in General

You have to give Joan Rivers credit for knowing how to adapt to today’s generation and successfully making a viral video to promote her book. Apparently, Costco won’t sell it — and in an act of defiance, she went to Costco, handcuffed herself to a shopping cart, and yelled very funny things through a bullhorn. Watch below.

Ellie Goulding Premieres Clips of New Album

Written by , Posted in General

I loved Ellie Goulding’s debut album, Lights. In fact, when the rest of the world caught on to her, I found myself angrily staking my claim on the discovery. For whatever reason though, it didn’t stand the tests of time in my music rotation. It’s just unique enough to become tiresome upon multiple listens. So it’s nice to see that I can expect new material soon. Listen to clips from her follow-up album, Halcyon.

Sharon Osbourne v. NBC — Quits America’s Got Talent

Written by , Posted in General

The business is brutal, and Sharon Osbourne learned that the hard way when NBC allegedly axed her son, Jack Osbourne, from their new show after learning of his Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis. She called the move “discrimination,” but NBC insists that since Jack Osbourne didn’t sign on the dotted line, the deal never existed in the first place. So what’s the truth? Well — it’s likely somewhere in the middle. Everyone knows that the entertainment business is predicated on “hand-shake” deals that stay in place until the contract is signed. Sure those deals aren’t legally sound, but it’s a gentleman’s agreement until the contract can be properly executed. My guess is that NBC didn’t want the liability of employing someone with a physically demanding disease on a physically active show, and that’s more about being scared of a lawsuit than it is about “discrimation.” Furthermore, if NBC wants Sharon Osbourne back, she doesn’t have a choice. It’s the network’s option to employ her next year — not hers. She’s under contract — and she did sign on the dotted line.
