Fred Durst on a Juice Fast — Dumbest Idea Ever?

Written by , Posted in General

I often meet people that decide to undergo a juice fast and think, “You’re really stupid. What kind of an idiot buys into that new-age garbage about body cleansing your toxins? And furthermore, I no longer want to speak to you because you’re dumb. And I hate dumb people.” But my external monologue often is, “Wow, you are so disciplined. I’ve always wanted to do that but never had the guts. Good for you!” As it turns out, Fred Durst is amongst the individuals in need of a tongue-lashing from my internal monologue. In fact, he’s worse than most, considering his fast is around thirty days, and he keeps “cheating” with cookies. Perhaps the fast will reset his brain instead of his body? To read his hilarious blog about the very difficult process click the link below, and grab some popcorn while you’re at it (it will be even more enjoyable that way).

David Cross on Conan — Makes Anti-Semitic Comment

Written by , Posted in General

Just because you’re Jewish doesn’t mean you’re allowed to make anti-Semitic comments. David Cross appeared on Conan to discuss his new film, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, and it’s clear he hated the experience. Though I love when an actor is brutally honest about mistreatment on set, he crossed the line when he said that one of the producers is the “Personification of what people think about when they think negatively about Jews.”

Kelly Clarkson Joins The Voice — American Idol is Smiling

Written by , Posted in General

When I heard that Kelly Clarkson would appear on The Voice, I thought, “Wow, that’s really strange. Isn’t she the chick that won American Idol?” As it turns out, I’m not the only person intrigued by the choice. American Idol programming executive Mike Darnell said, “It’s a compliment to Idol, that other shows want to use our superstars on their shows. We’re not hiring a lot of people on The Voice to be on our show.” It is a little strange to tout Kelly Clarkson as famous enough to mentor up-and-comers, considering that fame is solely attributed to a competing show. I bet the development executives in charge of her selection hadn’t even thought about it until the media brought it to their attention.

Quote of the Day — Matt Grant Trashes Shayne Lamas

Written by , Posted in General

“Did I find true love on the show? Um, no. Not one little bit. I proposed to a woman who was about a foot and a half shorter than me, who had nothing in common with me, and thought there were palm trees in London. Did I make a mistake? Yes. Did I look like an idiot? Yes. Do I regret it? A little bit.” Matt Grant on whether he regrets proposing to his ex-fiance, Shayne Lamas.

The Bachelor Ratings are Down — Ben Flajnik Stinks!@

Written by , Posted in General

When The Bachelorette’s Ashley Hebert reduced her romantic prospects down to a select few, I thought, “ABC is screwed on their next Bachelor. Everyone Ashley likes is boring and unattractive.” The network often picks a reject from the previous season to kick off the new season, because the viewers are already familiar with the star, which increases the likelihood of immediate ratings. But what do you do when the reject lacks the star power necessary to carry the series? In ABC’s case the answer is — cast him anyways. And they’ve paid the price with bad ratings. They should have cast someone entirely new, but I’m sure the powers-that-be felt it was too risky, considering their decision to cast the newbie Matt Grant led to its worst ratings of all time. It was a lose-lose. Perhaps Ashley Hubert should apologize to ABC for her taste in men.

Dave Grohl on ‘After Lately’ — Jen is Obsessed

Written by , Posted in General

I don’t think the video below is very funny. In fact, I think Chelsea Handler’s side-show, ‘After Lately’, is altogether humorless. That being said, Dave Grohl is incredibly hot, and I therefore have no other choice but to post it. Please watch and then envision The Dishmaster and Grohl living happily ever after. After all, we manifest our destinies, right?

Cee Lo Green Butchers John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ — Defends Himself

Written by , Posted in General

If you’re going to cover a song, then cover the song. Sure it’s fine to change the melody, but only an egocentric nut would take one of the most famous songs ever written and completely change its meaning by altering the lyrics. Cee Lo Green sang John Lennon’s Imagine on New Year’s Eve and he changed “Nothing to kill or die for, And no religion too” to “Nothing to kill or die for, And all religion’s true.” When asked about the controversy, Green said that his choice was “done out of love and out of peace and unity and tolerance and acceptance and all those many wonderful things that seem cliche and a little bit cheesy. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.” It’s always the angry dudes that preach “peace and unity.” Only someone with internal rage would mess with John Lennon lyrics.

Quote of the Day — Jimmy Buffet on His Stage Fall

Written by , Posted in General

“I’m healed up from my fabulous stage drive in Australia. To dispel a few rumors, I wasn’t drunk and there wasn’t a beautiful girl in the audience that caused me to walk off. When I woke up I said, “Was it a heart attack or a stroke?” I was very happy when they said, “No, you had a concussion. You just walked off the stage like a Miss America contestant.” Weirdly, my tennis game got better afterward.” Jimmy Buffet, on his well-publicized stage fall during his Sydney concert.

Howard Stern Drunk Dials Twitter Fans on New Years

Written by , Posted in General

The art of Howard Stern’s genius is that his ideas are simple yet brilliant.  His latest ground-breaking adventure involved calling his twitter fans on New Years, telling them he and his wife are drunk-dialing and asking for phone numbers.  And according to some tweets, Stern followed through. Too bad I was out of the country and missed the opportunity. Here’s hoping he makes house calls next.
