FACEBOOK Lifts Nipple Ban — Breastfeeding Boobies Allowed!??

Written by , Posted in General

In an effort to temper the tirade of fierce feminists with nothing better to fight for than the underrepresented nipple, facebook has lifted its ban on breastfeeding photos. Apparently, it’s some kind of double standard for men to freely expose their nipples, while women cannot, especially when those women are engaged in the very beautiful act of breastfeeding (SARCASM INTENDED).

There are a few points to make here, all of which deserve close attention. First, breastfeeding is not beautiful. Call me a heartless cactus, but there are many “natural” acts that involve a mother and her newborn that are also not beautiful, such as changing a diaper. If I don’t want to see a random mother and child in the artful exchange of excrement, I also don’t want to see bare boobies on my screen. Second, until a child is of age, I draw enormous outrage with publicly exposing such private moments for the world to see (and yes, 500 friends is in fact, “THE WORLD”). And lastly, feminists everywhere should find a better cause. I hear global warming is all the rage these days.

ISIS Advances At an Alarming Rate — Watch Daily Show Summary

Written by , Posted in General

After a predictably failed attempt to democratize the Middle East and to arm the Iraqi government with the necessary tools to combat an insurgency, radical Islamic militants are advancing at an alarming rate. Iraqi soldiers scattered, leaving militants with an easy win over Mosul. Emboldened insurgents are now after Baghdad, leaving Barack Obama with a far-too-familiar ambiguous response. According to Obama, the United States “will not react overnight,” or perhaps at all (that last part is mine). The ISIS goal is to establish an Islamic state that stretches to Northern Syria, which is a realistic fear given their previous success against President Bashar al-Assad. For an easy rundown on the current state of “Mess O’ Potamia,’ watch the link below. Jon Stewart says it best.

Ardie Fuqua’s Daughter Begs TMZ to Remove Video of Injured Father

Written by , Posted in General

ardie_daughterThe daughter of critically injured comedian Ardie Fuqua has launched an appeal to TMZ on Instagram, begging the “news” outlet to remove a graphic video of her father that shows him being pulled from the wreckage that also critically injured Tracy Morgan and took the life of James McNair. Louis C.K. joined the movement, tweeting TMZ with the same request. The photo below shows the appeal, and the photo above came with a very moving caption from Ardie,  saying, “Me and my 19 year old daughter Krizya at Carolines. I’m a performer, I do my job well, but nothing beats the feeling of looking into a room of 400 people and seeing your child smiling. I may not have much money, but I feel like a millionaire when I see that.” May he get well soon, and may TMZ rot in hell.

LeAnn Rimes & Eddie Cibrian’s Reality Show — WATCH TRAILER

Written by , Posted in General

In case you are one of the lucky few who know nothing about the Eddie Cibrian, LeAnn Rimes, and Brandi Glanville drama, here’s the story in a nutshell. “Actor” Eddie cheated on his then unknown wife, Brandi, with the well-known singer LeAnn on the set of their film, ‘Northern Lights.’ Brandi boldly got them back, landing a role on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which instantly escalated her fame far beyond Rimes, whose poor PR choices sank her professional life. Now, Rimes and Cibrian are presumably strapped for work, which can only explain their new reality show. In fact, the very idea that it’s the same genre as Brandi on a less successful franchise, only adds to the embarrassment. As for Rimes’ dig at Glanville in the trailer below, it’s a clear example of why I feel no regret for this less than flattering post.

Did Daughtry Disrespect D-Day? — Singer Apologizes

Written by , Posted in General

‘American Idol’ alum Chris Daughtry landed in hot water after the folks over at Fox & Friends requested a song to honor the anniversary of D-Day, and Daughtry bailed, claiming to be “off the clock.” While it’s easy jump on the bashing bandwagon, this has clearly been blown out of proportion. First, Fox & Friends is filled with unprofessional hosts who should have planned this request in advance rather than awkwardly standing around the stage in a clumsy silence. Second, it’s obvious that Chris Daughtry freaked out at the request, which has been confirmed via his apology. He was afraid he’d botch the lyrics, and since he’s a professional, he knew that a failed attempt would be widely circulated. Last, can we stop assuming the absolute worst of people? Watch the video below and judge for yourself. I’d have bailed too.

James Franco Writes About Lindsay Lohan — Bungalow 89

Written by , Posted in General

In what I can only assume is a classless attempt to attract attention, James Franco has once again taken aim at Lindsay Lohan, calling her “damaged.” Franco penned a short story for Vice, entitled, Bungalow 89, which revealed intimate details about his experience with the troubled Hollywood starlet. I won’t recount every detail, except to say that the unflattering sequence of events should be sacred, and if someone published my worst moments for the public to peruse, I’d be pissed. As for the trajectory of James Franco’s career and his poor PR choices, I predict he’ll one day empathize with Linday Lohan’s current professional problems.

Written by , Posted in General

Jimmy Fallon squeezed into his tight, white pants for a stellar song and dance, and Jennifer Lopez joined him. The two tried to take each other down, with revolving turns as to who deserves the tightest-white-pants prize, and JLO treated the audience to a dose of her derriere. Watch below to get a good look at my girl crush in action.
