Written by , Posted in General

Gwyneth Paltrow’s PR team just scored a major win with her appearance on Howard Stern, because the notoriously uptight A-lister finally let her hair down for a revealing, fun chat. Paltrow discussed her famous power-couple pairings with ease, telling Stern about her relationships with Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck, and Chris Martin, Amongst the enlightening revelations were Paltrow’s declaration that Pitt was “too good for her,” Affleck was “not in a good place in his life,” and Martin is still a great friend. She also reflected on her close relationship with her father and her dad’s devastation over her Brad breakup. Listen to a very entertaining hour below.

Kathy Griffin on Fashion Police — Full Review

Written by , Posted in General

Fashion Police has returned with Kathy Griffin as its host, and it’s a stark reminder of Joan Rivers’ genius. I realize the Kathy/Joan comparison is lose-lose given Rivers’ legendary place in history, but there’s some tangible issues that can’t be ignored. First, although Griffin has Joan’s same fearless candor, she doesn’t have her fashion sense or her ability to spew out funny jokes on the fly. Joan had endless analogies with powerful punch lines, along with a credible fashion resume that included red-carpet, what-are-you-wearing interviews. Had I produced this show, I’d have drastically changed the format to avoid the comparisons and molded it more toward Griffin’s style. Sitting on the dais doesn’t work for anyone but Joan. Furthermore, I was willing to ignore the co-hosts also having zero fashion knowledge because of Joan, but if you’re going to use Kathy, then some serious cred is needed to compensate.

George Clooney Declares His Love — Golden Globes

Written by , Posted in General

All women want to believe that when a man professes his love, he “doesn’t say it to all the girls,” and in the case of George Clooney, I think it’s pretty clear that’s the case. The consummate bachelor has long said no to nuptials despite a plethora of pretty ladies on his girlfriend list — until now. The pretty lady in question is also extremely smart, and according to Clooney he’s been waiting for Amal Alamuddin his whole life. Watch his sweet declaration of love below.

Brandi Glanville Has On-Air STD Meltdown — #WWHL

Written by , Posted in General

Apparently there’s more than one way to penetrate Brandi Glanville, and this one includes an STD insult, which seems to have hit too close to home. Glanville later denied the dramatic meltdown served via Jeff Lewis, insisting it was just a prank between the two “friends” (see her tweet below). It’s obvious why Brandi would try to save face by calling it fake, given that the dish-dirt Queen would be too much a hypocrite if she couldn’t take the heat. After all, she did say Joanna Krupa had a smelly you-know-what. Aren’t both malfunctions under the same hood? Watch below, and judge for yourself.

Childish Gambino’s “Sober” — WATCH NOW

Nothing like a steamy slow-jam with bizarre dance moves to woo a woman. If she would just “free her mind” and let it shine,” she’d realize that the strange, “so high” man is worth the chance. Only the imaginative, multi-talented Donald McKinley Glover, Jr, could produce the creative excellence that is Childish Gambino. Enjoy “Sober” below.

Sia Apologizes for ‘Elastic Heart’ Video

Written by , Posted in General

Aside from my general angst regarding all things LaBeouf, Sia’s ‘Elastic Heart’ video has some other serious problems. The perverse undertones are prevalent, with a creepy cage match between an older man and a little girl while wearing nude leotards. As for Sia, she’s issued a standard celebrity-style apology, saying, “I apologize to those who feel triggered by ‘Elastic Heart.’ My intention was to create some emotional content, not to upset anybody.” Can celebrities add a little class to their crazy juice, please? Watch the video below to see the disturbing content.

Movie Review: ‘The Imitation Game’

Written by , Posted in General

the_imitation_game_posterThere are men who are given a set of challenges inside a system, and there are men who challenge the system. Alan Turing was the latter, and the code-breaker used his unique genius to win WWII. Beautifully brought to life by Benedict Cumberbatch, The Imitation Game tells the true tale of Turing’s time at Bletchley Park, where British Intelligence hired him and a team of men to crack “Enigma,” the encryption device used by the Nazi’s to communicate. During his time at Bletchley Park, Turing barbed the base commander at every turn (brilliantly portrayed by Charles Dance), who constantly questioned Turing’s unorthodox approach to breaking the code. His cohorts were also cantankerous, and his detached hubris didn’t help. His isolation is explained through flashbacks showing Turing as a solitary schoolboy with a single friend who rescued him from his bullying peers. The film takes a welcome turn when a fellow code-breaker named Joan Clarke (played by Keira Knightly) arrives, whose bond with Turing helps soften the team who would later defend the man they previously questioned, and the rest speaks for itself through history. Sadly, the very country he helped save then turned against him, forcing dangerous hormone medication to rectify his homosexual status, which ultimately ends in tragedy.

Much like Einstein, Edison, or Newton, Alan Turing’s name should be universally acknowledged, and The Imitation Game might solidify that sentiment. The English-language directorial debut of Norway’s Morten Tyldum is adapted from Andrew Hodges’ biography: Alan Turing: The Enigma, and there’s no better actor of today’s generation than Benedict Cumberbatch. The Resident “it-man,” is riveting.
