Common & Maya Angelou Discuss the N-Word — So Does Chris Rock

Written by , Posted in General

When I saw the video of Common & Maya Angelou in a serious sit-down about using the N-Word, I found myself uncomfortable. That’s more about me than about them, considering I don’t deal well with emotional topics. So in an effort to address the same message with a sense of humor I’ve posted a vintage clip of Chris Rock discussing the same subject. Enjoy!

Komen Backs Down — Planned Parenthood Reigns Supreme

Written by , Posted in General

In honor of the social media’s successful pressure against the Komen Foundation to reinstate funding to Planned Parenthood, I’m posting a vintage clip of Stephen Colbert’s hilarious discussion of how there’s no need for Planned Parenthood when we can all get pap smears at Walgreens.

Madonna’s Charges Insane Ticket Prices — Says She’s “Worth It”

Written by , Posted in General

It’s no surprise that a multi-millionaire such as Madonna would have absolutely no concept of this country’s financial destitution. It’s also no surprise that she would have insane ticket prices, presumably because . . . well . . . she can. When asked about the hefty $300 a seat, she simply said, “People spend $300 on crazy things all the time, things like handbags. So work all year, scrape the money together, and come to my show. I’m worth it.” No Madonna — you are not, especially when only your rich fans have the opportunity to see you live.

Aaron Embry at The Hotel Cafe — Kills It!

Written by , Posted in General

There is something very understated and beautiful about Aaron Embry. It’s difficult to explain why some musicians move me more than others, but Aaron Embry accomplished it last night at The Hotel Cafe. And I’m not the only one. The entire room was silenced by his performance. When I attempted to move closer to the stage, I was quickly stopped by some angry sneers from audience members unhappy with my distraction. They were mesmerized. And rightfully so. Strangely, the only person that didn’t seem to realize Aaron’s talents is Aaron. He seemed shy and intimidated by the crowd. Though that’s part of what made him so great, I always fear it’s the humble guys that get buried alive in this industry. You’ve got to have the fight in you, and I can only hope he has enough fight to claw his way into mainstream media.

Attention Tabloids — Leave Demi Moore Alone

Written by , Posted in General


Remember the old mantra, “don’t kick someone when they’re down?” Perhaps it’s time for news reporters, tabloid magazines, and blogs to take that advice. It’s bad enough that Demi Moore ‘s 911 call was released to the public (and no — I did not listen to it), but now there’s a plethora of ridiculous speculation about her “washed up career” and her “quest to recapture her youth.” Is this necessary? When people struggle, either reach your hand out or back off and let them heal.

Quote of the Day — Gwyneth Paltrow Still Bathes With Her Kids

Written by , Posted in General

“I’ll continue to bathe with my daughter until she’s an adult if she so wishes. I want her to be comfortable with her body, and the best way to encourage that is to show her I’m comfortable with mine.” Gwyneth Paltrow tells Harper’s Bazaar about her decision to bathe with her seven year old daughter.

Gotye on Jimmy Kimmel — Kills it!

Written by , Posted in General

Gotye is on his way to super stardom and it’s all because of his song, “Somebody That I Used to Know.” We can all relate to feeling as if the love of our life has become a complete stranger within an instant. Plus, Gotye made the brilliant choice of adding the girl’s perspective to his song. Watch him perform with Kimbra, who I have to give major fashion props to. She looked incredible.

Howard Stern Celebrates Letterman’s Anniversary — Keeps Jay Leno Feud Alive

Written by , Posted in General

Howard Stern appeared on Letterman last night for Letterman’s thirtieth anniversary, and he did not disappoint. He kept the Leno/Letterman feud alive, and he even got Dave to utter the words, “If Jay Leno wins the People’s Choice Award it’s as if Charles Manson got paroled.” Stern also reminded the world of Jay Leno’s infamous choice to hide in a closet during an NBC business meeting to find out whether he was Johnny Carson’s replacement. Letterman laughed in confirmation, and Stern told Dave that despite his new judging role on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, he won’t appear on The Tonight Show because of his loyalty to Letterman.
