Movie Review: ‘Like Crazy’

Written by , Posted in General

Love is necessary but not sufficient for a relationship to survive. And that painful realization is beautifully illustrated in ‘Like Crazy.’ The film follows Anna (Felicity Jones), a British exchange student studying in Los Angeles, who falls in love with Jacob (Anton Yelchin). She overstays her visa to spend the summer with Jacob after graduation, which later results in a ban from the United States. Their attempt at a long distance relationship becomes the center of the film, and no matter how hard they fight against it, their love keeps them intertwined. The film presents some haunting questions about love. Should it be that hard? Should it cause that much pain? Is it worth fighting through the obstacles that shackle your happiness? And if it is truly love, and the obstacles are removed, does that automatically equate to a sustainable relationship? I won’t reveal how this movie ends, but I will say that it’s the most accurate portrayal of love I’ve ever seen on film.

Tara Reid Was Never Married — Clearly Needs Help

Written by , Posted in General

I don’t usually comment on celebrities in trouble, mostly because it’s not funny, and I try to keep this blog as light as possible. But when I stumbled across a video of Tara Reid discussing her “never-married-marriage,” I had to post it. The blogosphere annihilates Tara Reid for her public debauchery, but I’m just sad for her. There’s something very wrong in the video below, and I hope she gets help. No sense picking on someone when they’re down, other than to say that if her family isn’t pointing out her desperate need for help, then I will.

Dr. Drew Interviews Courtney Stodden — Deplorable

Written by , Posted in General

Remember when Dr. Drew was a real doctor? Now he’s just one of those television hacks that preys on the downfall of celebrities. And to make matters worse, he has a new, purposeless show that involves interviewing Z-list celebrities. Those “celebrities” include the 51 year old Doug Hutchinson (also known as “pedophile”) and the 17 year old Courtney Stodden (also known as “suffering from Stockholm syndrome”). And forgive me for picking on little children — but what’s wrong with Courtney Stodden’s face?

Maksim Chmerkovskiy v. Len Goodman — It’s War

Written by , Posted in General

Though I’d love for the very yummy Maksim Chmerkovskiy to show me that feisty temper in the privacy of my bedroom, it doesn’t fit on Dancing With the Stars. When Len Goodman insulted his Rumba, Maksim riled the audience and promoted their boos, which incited Len Goodman’s rage. Maksim then said that the professional dancers “kill themselves only to hear judgmental comments.” First, what did Maksim think he signed up for? This is a dancing show, and there are three judges on the panel that are paid to actually judge his dance. Second, it’s supposed to be fun. And he’s not being very fun. Third, his Rumba was terrible. Hope looked awkward and it had zero sex appeal. Did he expect a standing ovation? And finally, please don’t vote him off. He’s just too damn beautiful to look at every week.

Nicole Sherzinger’s New Single, ‘Try With Me’ — Terrible

Written by , Posted in General

If you watch X Factor, then you’re familiar with the excessively pompous Nicole Scherzinger who has made it clear on numerous occasions that she can actually sing. So you can imagine my bliss when I discovered her wretched new single, ‘Try With Me’, where the vocals are nearly unrecognizable amidst an auto-tuned mess. Haven’t we heard enough of this wretched sound? Isn’t it time for evolution to phase out these types of singers? Where’s Darwin when you need him. Listen below.

Kelly Clarkson Still Bad-Mouths Ryan Tedder — Classless

Written by , Posted in General


Hasn’t Kelly Clarkson learned her lesson about bad-mouthing heavy hitters in the industry? To promote her new album, ‘Stronger’, Clarkson revisited the Ryan Tedder controversy and once again accused him of giving her and Beyonce the same song. The two songs in question are Beyonce’s ‘Halo’ and Clarkson’s ‘Already Gone.’ Clarkson learned of the similarity after watching YouTube mashups and she later pointed the finger at Tedder in the press. Tedder was rightfully pissed that Clarkson smeared his song-writing reputation.

In an effort to give Clarkson the benefit of the doubt, I played both songs for my musician friend, Steve Aho, who said that, although they sound similar, “it’s a very common chord progression” that “isn’t even identical.” Since I’ve done my musical research, I can now safely say that Kelly Clarkson is irresponsible and classless. You do not bad-mouth a musician because some douchey people made YouTube mashups of your song. Perhaps she should write her own material so she needn’t worry about this nonsense. Oh wait — she did — and it didn’t work.

Alexis Stewart on ‘The Today Show’ — Confirms She’s Horrible

Written by , Posted in General

Alexis Stewart appeared on ‘The Today Show’ to promote her new book, ‘Whateverland,’ and it’s obvious she should immediately check into therapy. First, she was clearly annoyed by the Martha Stewart related questions, which is hilarious considering the book would never be published without her mother’s name. Second, she co-wrote the book with Jennifer Koppelman-Hutt, who she’s no longer friends with. When asked why the friendship ended, Stewart gave vague answers, but reiterated a quote from her book, saying, “If you want to punish somebody, never talking to them is a good method.” It didn’t surprise me that Koppelman-Hutt couldn’t answer the question either, given her recent appearance on Howard Stern where she divulged she has absolutely no idea why Alexis banished her from her life. What exactly happened during Alexis Stewart’s life to make her such a horrible, angry person? And furthermore, who wants to buy an advice book from someone that needs twelve of their own? Perhaps the ‘Whateverland’ title should be changed to “Why-I-Gratuitously-Drop-My-Friends-And Hate-Life.”

Mariah Carey Reveals Twins — Babara Walters Interview

Written by , Posted in General

It’s great to see Mariah Carey back to her normal self in an interview. She’s usually slightly nuts, and only Barbara Walters can bring out the Mariah we loved at the beginning of her career. She finally unveiled her adorable twins, and though they seem incredibly cute, I get the strange feeling that there’s some marital animosity going on. For example, when Walters asked Mariah if she trusts Cannon, Mariah responds with, “sometimes.” Watch below.

Quote of the Day — Kate Winslet

Written by , Posted in General

“I ran into the bedroom and put on a bra. In disastrous moments like that, you do the strangest things. I started to put on a bra and thought ‘No, that’s going to take me too long,’ so off came the bra, on came the t-shirt, I grabbed the children and I picked up Granny.” Kate Winslet on how she handled the fire at Richard Branson’s house, where she famously picked up Branson’s mother, or “Granny”, and carried her down the stairs.
