Quote of the Day — David Furnish on Madonna Bashing

Written by , Posted in General

“Wow! What a tempest in a teapot. My comments regarding The Golden Globes have been blown way out of proportion. My passion for our film Gnomeo & Juliet and belief in Elton‘s song really got my emotional juices going. But I must say for the record that I do believe Madonna is a great artist, and that Elton and I wish her all the best for next week’s premiere of the film W.E.” Elton John’s husband, David Furnish, casually dismissing the fact that he’s a sore loser.

Cindy Crawford’s Daughter Models — She’s 10 — And Prepubescent

Written by , Posted in General

I realize that Cindy Crawford’s daughter is modeling Versace’s “children’s line,” but no child I know dresses like that. She’s being sexualized in a short skirt, and furthermore, I find it deplorable that the fashion industry uses child models because anorexia is much more easily averted when using prepubescent kids. Since they haven’t reached maturity, they don’t have to starve themselves yet — right? When I was ten years old, I played in a cardboard box that I insisted was a rocket ship. This is just sad.

Sherri Shepherd Discusses Paula Deen’s Diabetes — Hypocrite?

Written by , Posted in General

Sherri Shepherd sufficiently confused me on today’s The View, where she discussed the controversy surrounding Paula Deen’s diabetes. Shepherd has openly discussed her own struggle with diabetes, despite also openly maintaining an extremely overweight stature. Though I try not to pick on people’s physical appearance at The Dishmaster, Shepherd’s statements in the video below beg the obvious question — why has no one “shaken” her about her weight issues? Perhaps she needs her own wake up call.

Rosie O’Donnell Shark-Fishes — HORRIBLE!

Written by , Posted in General

Though I am not a vegetarian, I am fundamentally against killing animals for sport or smiling beside the dead body of an animal one just killed. Such is the case with Rosie O’Donnell, who has recently sparked controversy for appearing with her children beside a dead hammerhead shark, which she caught while shark-fishing in Florida. Sharks are over-fished and risk extinction, and Florida recently banned the activity (note: the activity was banned after O’Donnell’s heinous excursion). To make matters worse, this isn’t her first time shark-fishing. O’Donnell made light of it when the public got angry, issuing a mock service announcement, which included a dig at Donald Trump. I realize that humor can often get one out of trouble (see Alec Baldwin), but that tactic is inappropriate here.

Elton John v. Madonna Feud at Golden Globes — It’s War!

Written by , Posted in General

I’m unsure when the Elton John/Madonna feud began, but it appears from my research that Elton John started it at the Q awards in 2004 when he insulted Madonna’s previous win in his acceptance speech, saying, “Madonna, best f***ing live act? F*** off! Since when has lip-synching been live? That’s me off her f***ing Christmas card list but do I give a toss? No.” He continued his tirade at last night’s Golden Globes during the red carpet, saying that she didn’t have a chance in hell of winning the award. After the win his partner, David Furnish, posted a furious message on his facebook page, saying, “Madonna. Best song???? F**k off!!!” Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism. And her criticism of Gaga shows how desperate she really is.” Wow — either Elton John is a sore loser or there’s information about his relationship with Madonna that we don’t know about. Did she kick his dog or something? Watch clips from their feud below.

Claire Danes Wins Homeland Golden Globe — Best Speech of the Night

Written by , Posted in General

Acceptance speeches at awards shows usually involve three solid minutes of dropping every big industry name the recipient can recall, likely in hopes of maintaining the relationships that keep the actor employed. It’s rare that those speeches have personal touches, but Danes pulled it off. She won for Homeland, and she cited the time fifteen years ago when she won for My So Called Life and she forgot to thank her parents, saying that she’s happy to have the opportunity to correct the error. Might I also add that she was the most deserving actress for that award? Her performance in Homeland is insanely fantastic. Watch her speech below.

Ricky Gervais Outs Jodie Foster? — Who Cares?

Written by , Posted in General

Someone needs to check the definition of “outing.” Just because you make a joke about someone’s sexuality doesn’t mean that you’ve exposed some inside information about that person’s personal life thereby “outing” them. For years people have questioned Foster’s sexual preference and she’s never confirmed or denied it. She doesn’t have to, and I’m sure she’s used to others bringing it up. She is comfortable with the speculation, and Gervais is comfortable poking fun at the issue. Plus — something tells me Foster has a sense of humor about herself.

Ricky Gervais Hosts the 2012 Golden Globes — Kills It

Written by , Posted in General

As expected, Ricky Gervais delivered the goods at the 2012 Golden Globes. Though I found him to be a bit tamer than anticipated, he still took some much-loved jabs at Hollywood’s biggest stars, including Johnny Depp, whom Gervais asked if he’s seen The Tourist. Depp was a good sport, and confessed that he hadn’t. He also compared the Golden Globes to the Oscars only “without the esteem?” Watch below.
