Donald Trump v. Matt Laeur: Today Show Throwdown

Written by , Posted in General

 If Donald Trump is going to run for President, then he should be more responsible. And if this political run is more about personal promotion than being Commander-in-Chief of the United States Armed Forces, then I’d encourage him to back out now, because he’s making a mockery of a process that is already cartoonish. According to Trump, the media has twisted his original words, using a clip of his statement that John McCain is “not a war hero,” and leaving out the end of his comment, in which he stated that he was a war hero. The comment in question is clear as day, despite Trumps desire to squash the subsequent tirade. We are responsible for our words, and he should know better.
 
I am unafraid to admit that I’ve been a longtime Donald Trump fan, having loyally watched The Apprentice since it’s inception and being a die-hard Howard Stern listener, where Trump has often been a very entertaining guest. What I’ve always admired about Trump his his ability to speak his mind with a side of humor, and his ownership of his own antics. But what I have always known about Trump he is unequivocally unable to accept criticism. When attacked, Trump will drop a hammer on an ant, breaking his arm in the process. There has been many examples of this, including Martha Stewart and Bill Maher, where Trump acted like a petulant child in need of a teet. When his ego is penetrated and his feelings are hurt, he will escalate his response to the point of his own demise. In the case of John McCain, that’s exactly what happened. McCain insulted Trump, and Trump’s disproportionate response has incited a firestorm. 
 
It’s safe to say I’ve revoked my Donald Trump support in the entertainment sphere (I never supported his political run). I will no longer watch his shows or support his business ventures. If he chooses to reform, perhaps I’ll reconsider. Until then, our relationship has ended. Watch his interview with Matt Laeur below.

Chris Pratt Answers “5 Juicy Questions” for Women’s Health

Written by , Posted in General

  Solidified box office star and resident hunk Chris Pratt sat down for a chat with Women’s Health for their ‘What Men Think’ column, and he answered five juicy questions for his female fan base, Read and enjoy. 
5 Juicy Questions with Chris Pratt

1. Opposites attract: true or false?

“Well, scientifically it’s a fact, because you can look at the polarity of the water molecule and the capillary action of ice and water. [Laughs] It can be true in real life, too, but I don’t think it’s a rule. If you’re like Anna [Faris, Pratt’s wife] and myself, we’re very similar. We married ourselves because we have comparable egos and abnormally high self-esteem.”
2. Is it ever okay to lie to your partner?

“Honesty is the best policy, but being mindful of someone’s feelings is also very important. It’s not okay to lie, but it is okay to protect your partner. And understanding the difference requires wisdom.”

 

3. Are you a fan of PDA?

“Yes. But it’s a fine line. Keep it classy. Don’t be gross. I don’t mind PDA; I do mind GPDA, which is Gross Public Displays of Affection.”

 

4. When was the last time you were really scared?

“Parenting comes with a lot of fears—some rational, some irrational. Jack, our son [age 2], has had a couple of surgeries. Those were scary. He just had one recently, and I knew he would be fine because it was a minor thing and he’s had it done before, but you can’t help but get scared when your kid is going under anesthesia.”

 

5. What would the reality show about your life be called?

“Hollywood Squares. It’d be a throwback to the old game show, except instead of us playing tic-tac-toe and answering pop-culture triviaquestions, we would just sit around and watch The Bachelor and make meals. It would be super boring.”

Whoopi Goldberg Finally Admits Bill Cosby MIGHT be Guilty

Written by , Posted in General

  Whoopi Goldberg wisely took to ‘The View’ panel for a thorough rundown on all things Bill Cosby, after her defenses didn’t sit right with a worldwide audience. It’s long been suspected that Cosby and Goldberg are friends, and the EGOT-winning star has taken his side for loyalty’s sake, effectively dismissing the 40 women that have claimed rape.
Explaining that the only remedy is the “court of public opinion,” ABC’s Dan Abrams encouraged folks to push lawmakers to set aside the statue of limitations on rape cases. While I’m happy to see their conversation, Abrams neglected to point out why the statute of limitations exists. Its purpose is for protection, given that memories fade and evidence wanes over time, and it becomes more difficult for both the defense and prosecution to engage in a case with stale details decades later. That being said, I’m happy to see Goldberg finally admit that the evidence points toward guilt.

Laverne Cox Responds to Kylie Jenner Cornrows Controversy

Written by , Posted in General

When it comes to celebrity controversy, I’m constantly asking whether it’s appropriate for famous people to take on huge sociological issues. The latest fued involves Kylie Jenner and Amandla Stenberg, who took the privileged tart to task for posting a picture with cornrows via Instagram and claiming “cultural appropriation,” asking “What would America be like if we loved black people as much as we love black culture?” Jenner was predictably pissed, saying “Mad if I don’t. Mad if I do…Go hang w Jaden or something.”
 
Stenberg’s argument is interesting, and it deserves exploration. White people have adopted many elements of black culture, and when they do, it’s often celebrated. When Bo Derek debuted her dreads, she was seen as a cultural icon, yet black people had rocked the same style for years, with no such response. That being said, black people constantly adopt white culture (via hair straightening, etc, and that’s often deemed “white-washing” from their own culture and arguably a response to objectionable social norms). But is it wrong to borrow trends from other cultures? I have an awesome pair of harem pants with eclectic patchwork created by a designer visiting Austria from Africa, and each time I wear them, I think of her and how excited she was to sell them. Should I be chastised as a silly white girl adopting a trend I have no business wearing? While hair and fashion come with its own set of differences, the general principle remains the same. When Laverne Cox was asked on Watch What Happens Live for her take on the controversy, she quickly exited the argument due to a confined, ten second format. She has since written a lengthy essay with more explanation. She still elegantly avoided a clear side in the debate, which might be a good thing. Conversation can always yield more results than scolding.
 
As for Kylie Jenner, the larger issue is that she’s annoying, and her cultural appropriation has gone far beyond simple “influence.” She’s dating a black man, rocking dreads, exponentially increasing the size of her ass, plumping her lips, and using verbiage on instagram such as “I woke up like disss” She’s an easy target, and were she a little more educated, intelligent, and capable of an informed response, perhaps this debate would enter healthy territory.

Written by , Posted in General

  
It’s about time Amy Poehler and Tina Fey played sisters, given that their power pairing has brought us some of the best comedy we’ve seen in some time. And since “Sisters” seems to forgo the standard good cop, bad cop story-line, we’re getting double the fun. Watch as these two relive a childhood that never seemed to actually end.

John Oliver on Whoopi Goldberg: She’ll Defend Anything

Written by , Posted in General

  It’s no secret that Whoopi Goldberg can be a cantankerous contrarian, but it wasn’t until John Oliver packaged her most objectionable defenses that I realized just how far she’ll go to present the other side of the argument. Her standouts include Mel Gibson, Jesse James, Ray Rice, Chris Brown, Bill Cosby, and Roman Polanski. While she might just be a loyal friend with a questionable inner circle, her stances are certainly worth a raised eyebrow. Watch below.

Lena Dunham Backtracks on Marriage After Freaking Out her Boyfriend

Written by , Posted in General

  I’m unsure about many things, but there’s one thing of which I’m certain. Celebrities are insane. Just as I frown upon close friends who expose the inner workings of their personal life on facebook, I do the same for celebrities, whose “friend circle” is a much larger audience with much more to say. Lena Dunham makes the list of loony celebs who just can’t stop the crazy train. When asked about her love life with musician Jack Antonoff, Dunham fiercely proclaimed that she’d marry when gay people had the equal right. She predictably got herself into a pickle given the recent Supreme Court ruling, and she now must backtrack. Instead of learning her lesson and closing the public doors to her private life, she has now written a long-winded essay for The New Yorker, explaining that her boyfriend is not on the same marriage page, and he seemed uncomfortable with her forward advances. Gee, was it the tweet to millions of people, or perhaps making the talk-show rounds to talk about it? In normal life, mentioning marriage is already a careful approach, in celebrity life, apparently it’s a national issue. My advice to Lena Dunham and every other famous person on the planet is this. If you don’t want the public invested in your personal life, thereby increasing the paparazzi’s desire for pictures, keep it zipped. Furthermore, if you’d like to keep your relationship intact, privacy might help. Also, passive aggressively tweeting about the future state of your life is probably not the best idea.
