Mindy Kaling’s Crop Top is not “Courageous”

Written by , Posted in General

 

“It takes a lot of effort to look like a normal/chubby woman.”

Mindy Kaling visited Jimmy Kimmel and gave one of the most honest interviews I’ve ever seen on television. Kaling addressed the many bloggers who deliver backhanded compliments about her weight, calling her “courageous” for wearing a crop top and insisting that she “doesn’t subscribe to the ideals of beauty that other people do.” Kimmel kindly empathized, noting that others are constantly commenting on his weight. Watch below.

Jimmy Kimmel Covers Esquire — Talks Jimmy Fallon, Poop, & Pranks

Written by , Posted in General

Jimmy Kimmel covered this month’s Esquire Magazine, and the late night funnyman gave us an inside look at some behind-the-scenes action, along with some very gross details about his father. Check out some choice quotes below.

On Jimmy Fallon:

My only complaint about Jimmy Fallon is the first name: Jimmy. People get us mixed up all the time. No one remembers which Jimmy is which. Or they think I’m him, which can only make you feel like you should be him. Actually, he says the same thing happens to him. Jimmy. He’s like an athlete out there. He can jump high, act, sing. He’s a true performer. I’m a broadcaster. That’s how I come at this. Not a stand-up, not an actor, not a commentator. A broadcaster.”

About his pranks:

“I always found that it’s not entirely bad, because the victims always tend to come through. They show their humanity. They go beyond their limits—try to help, drive to places that don’t exist, and come back to ask what they should do next, if only to make it all stop. I’m the asshole, yes, but they generally reaffirm their humanity. I always end up recognizing the fact that people are basically good.”

On Rob Ford:

“The truth is, right now, Rob Ford is keeping me in business. There’s new video every day. The mayor of Toronto throwing candy canes at small children. The mayor wandering into a dance club. I don’t even have to write it. I sit back and watch him. He’s pranking the world.”

 

About his job:

This is the job. The only job for a person like me. I mean, I like to draw. I’m really good at it. I’m a good artist, and I think that’s what I would have done had radio not worked out for me. But here I am. You won’t see me doing anything else in the next twenty-five years.”

About texts from his father:

My dad is fond of texting me pictures of his poop.” He sighs, looks at the phone. “They can be fairly impressive, but it’s always a little stunning.” Simply put: Why? “He’s just proud,” Kimmel says. “But he wants me to beg him to stop.”

Kanye v. Kimmel — It’s War!

Written by , Posted in General

There are many words to describe Kanye West, but humorless tops the list. West recently interviewed with BBC 1, in which he engaged in one of his standard pompous rants that’s sadly become a staple for the singer. When Jimmy Kimmel hilariously mocked it with children saying the same lines, West had a predictable twitter-fit. Watch the video below, and Kanye — if you’re listening — have a laugh at least once in your life. No one likes a curmudgeon.

Howard Stern Takes Over Jimmy Fallon — Offers Tonight Show Advice

Written by , Posted in General

Howard Stern appeared on Jimmy Fallon and, true to form, took over his show. He arrived with some sage advice, telling Fallon that he needs to amp up his “killer instinct” to compete with Kimmel and sack his beloved “game week,” which Stern called boring. In fact, I was astonished to discover the Fallon didn’t take Stern’s advice in the moment, and instead opted to keep in game week rather than prolonging his Stern interview for a third segment (something most late-night hosts do if the interview is going well). Here’s my advice to Fallon: If you going to secure the king of all media for your show, you should listen — and GAME WEEK SUCKS. Watch below.

Jimmy Kimmel Bashes Leno — Playground Bully?

Written by , Posted in General

Though I’m an adamant fan of both Howard Stern and Jimmy Kimmel, I’m officially putting a public stop to their Leno bashing. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Kimmel put a predictable hit out on Leno, saying, “As a comedian, you can’t not have disdain for what he’s done. He totally sold out. He was a master chef who opened a Burger King.”

I certainly take shots at celebrities I dislike, but that’s mostly driven by my inside knowledge about how they treat their staff. And my inside sources tell me Leno treats his staff with the utmost respect. Additionally, if it’s true that the guy sold out, then I’d like to scream “SO WHAT” from the rooftops. He’s employed a plethora of people, and if selling his soul includes telling schmaltzy jokes publicly while maintaining his comedic integrity during his stand-up gigs, then so be it. Lastly, I will once again reiterate that I do not hold Leno accountable during the NBC/Conan debacle. Conan pushed Leno out, and Leno fought to maintain his gig. Anyone in their right mind would do the same — including Kimmel. Have some tact.

Kiefer Sutherland on Jimmy Kimmel — Talks About River Phoenix

Written by , Posted in General

For some reason actors rarely talk about River Phoenix. There’s stories in Hollywood about very famous actors who were good friends with him, such as Johnny Depp, but no one ever mentions it. So I was happy and moved to hear Kiefer Sutherland recount what it was like to work with him on Stand By Me. Watch below.

Khloe Kardashian on Jimmy Kimmel — Admits She Hated Kris Humphries

Written by , Posted in General

Khloe Kardashian is by far my favorite Kardashian. In fact, she might be the only one I like at all. If you watched Kim Kardashian’s wedding special, then you would have seen Khloe tell Kim about her dislike for Humphries, and she even directly addressed her feelings with Humphries himself. When Kim’s marriage fell apart, Khloe somehow refrained from saying, “I told you so.” Watch Jimmy Kimmel ask Khloe about Humphries below.

Gotye on Jimmy Kimmel — Kills it!

Written by , Posted in General

Gotye is on his way to super stardom and it’s all because of his song, “Somebody That I Used to Know.” We can all relate to feeling as if the love of our life has become a complete stranger within an instant. Plus, Gotye made the brilliant choice of adding the girl’s perspective to his song. Watch him perform with Kimbra, who I have to give major fashion props to. She looked incredible.

Maksim & Hope Skip DWTS Post-Show Interviews — Did ABC Ban Them?

Written by , Posted in General

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Hope Solo skipped their Dancing With the Stars post elimination tour, and I have a feeling ABC had something to do with it. Though there’s speculation that Solo and Chmerkovskiy are “sore losers” for their absence on Jimmy Kimmel and Good Morning America, it’s likely that these post-elimination appearances were built into their contract, which means they are either in breach, or ABC decided that their sour attitude would make for bad publicity. The latter makes more sense. It’s also startling that Chmerkovskiy feels so comfortable soiling his status with ABC, especially considering his per-episode payday. Given the headache he’s caused the show, I would not be surprised if he wasn’t picked-up for next season. Here’s hoping he’s saved his money.
