X Factor Reveals Extended Promo — Simon Returns

Written by , Posted in General

A new promo for X Factor was just released — and the show looks good. Though Simon Cowell insists that the format is completely different than American Idol, the truth is that wherever Simon Cowell goes — ratings will follow — format or not. In fact, I think it’s fair to say that the real “X Factor” is Simon Cowell and not some random contestant that will win five million dollars in the end. That man sure is a genius, though. He’s going to pocket hundreds of millions as the creator of a show he ripped off from Simon Fuller.

Madonna Apologizes — Still Hates Hydrangeas?

Written by , Posted in General

All public relations debacles can be solved with a sense of humor — and no one can execute this better than Madonna. In an effort to assuage the public outcry over her aversion to hydrangeas, Madonna made a silent film. Though I initially thought she’d take the easy way out and issue a standard apology in the video below, I was pleasantly surprised at the ending. Watch below.

Mel Gibson to Make Judah Maccabee Movie — HUH?!

Written by , Posted in General

When I first heard that Mel Gibson was making a movie about Judah Maccabee, I thought, “that can’t be the same Judah Maccabbee I’m thinking of, right? Perhaps there has been some kind of misunderstanding, and he’s actually making another movie about Jesus?” As it turns out, Gibson is making a movie about THE Judah Maccabbee, the Jewish religious hero that led the revolt against the Seleucid Empire. Isn’t there an easier way to prove that you’re not a bigot? Can’t the guy do an honest interview for once, where he actually discusses that his father is a holocaust denier? And during this same interview, maybe he could also explain that he is neither a wife-beater nor a racist? Actually — he’s doomed. He should just hang it up.

Quote of the Day — Jeffrey Katzenberg

Written by , Posted in General

“For sure the bloom is off the rose for a moment in time, driven by a singular and unique characteristic that only exists in Hollywood, greed. And, you know, so I think there were, unfortunately, a number of people who thought that they could capitalize on what was a great, genuine excitement by movie goers for a new premium experience, and thought they could just deliver a kind of low-end crappy version of it, and people wouldn’t care, or wouldn’t know the difference. And anything — you know, nothing could have been further from the truth.” Jeffrey Katzenberg on Hollywood’s obsession with 3D.

Erica Rose Hits on Blake Julian — Bachelor Pad

Written by , Posted in General

Being the prude that I am, I really respect a girl that can put her whore status in full gear. In fact, I like to live vicariously through the promiscuity of others. So you can imagine how much I enjoyed the hilarious scene from ABC’s ‘Bachelor Pad,’ which involved Erica Rose’s persistent attempt to get Blake Julian to sleep with her. The girl sure knows what she wants, and unfortunately for her, Blake does too. Watch below.

Kris Humphries Proposes to Kim Kardashian — On Television

Written by , Posted in General

I don’t often fantasize about a proposal, but if ever I do — allow me to say that video cameras are not involved.  I’m not sure why the Kardashian family lacks all sense of boundaries when it comes to their personal life, but they are somehow able to recruit other boundary-less individuals to join their clan.  Kris Humphries proposed to Kim Kardashian on television, and I can only assume he’s gone to the dark side.  Sure it’s nice to have “home videos” (as the Kardashians justify it), but home videos are usually meaningful because they are filmed by other close ones, not an entire camera crew.

Madonna Hates Hydrangeas — Who Knew?

Written by , Posted in General

If you’re planning on courageously gifting Madonna with flowers at a press event, make sure hydrangeas are not involved.  A random fan brought her a hydrangea, and Madonna said thank you, before turning to her neighbor and saying, “I absolutely hate hydrangeas. He obviously doesn’t know that.” Thank goodness he didn’t get her carnations. Then she might have whipped out her French accent instead of her British one. Watch below.

“If television is such an influence on people, then why is most of the country obese when there are so many beautiful models and actresses on screen?” Howard Stern’s retort on Chaz Bono’s Dancing With the Stars critics saying he’s a bad influence on children.”

Eddie Murphy to Host the Oscars — Good Choice!

Written by , Posted in General

For years I’ve wondered what happened to Eddie Murhpy. He’s considered one of the greatest comedians in history, and he hasn’t done stand-up in years. So did he just get comfortable with his millions and lose the hunger to perform? As it turns out, Murphy is returning to the spotlight to host the Oscars, and presumably to promote his new film, ‘Tower Heist.’ I’m glad the Oscar executives learned a thing or two after last year’s hosting debacle. And though it pains me to admit that the douchey Brett Ratner might have done something right, the trailer for ‘Tower Heist’ looks really good. Watch below.
