Old Navy Features Interracial Couple: Racists Erupt

Old Navy revealed their latest add, which features an interracial family enjoying their clothes, and we’ve learned a few things as a result. First, racist people enjoy twitter. Second, we are not as far along as we once thought. Third, we might be further along than we thought, but racist people are just a little louder than everyone else who chooses not to comment on something that is actually normal. Fourth, Old Navy picked up on the natural hair trend, and that model looks fabulous. Fifth, I must buy a new button-down. And lastly, Louis C.K. is correct when he says that the future looks bleak for white people.

Mariah Carey in a Candy Bra?! — WHAT????????


Somewhere behind Mariah Carey’s strange online antics is a down-to-earth girl from New York who knows how to have an articulate conversation without using words like “darling.” But if Carey had her way, I’d be the only person who knew that. Despite her talent, she’s still determined to prove herself, and that endless desire for accolades has damaged her brand. Her latest antic involves multiple twitter pictures sans clothes while in a candy bra waiting for her husband to arrive at home. While I realize twitter is a forum for a peak into your private life, there are lines, and this crosses it. To be harsh, it reeks of desperation, which isn’t necessary for someone of her vocal prowess.  Plus, the pictures aren’t pretty, which is an entirely different issue. Watch her new video below. One can’t be sure, but she may or may not be a mermaid in it.

Jessica Simpson sure wasn’t kidding when she called her daughter Maxwell “crazy beautiful.” The totally adorable tot is slightly over a year old and recently became a big sister when the Fashion Star host and her beau, Eric Johnson, welcomed Ace Knute Johnson.

Lady Gaga v. Perez Hilton: IT’S WAR!

There’s a fire in Lady Gaga’s pants, and this time it’s not for show. Gaga and Perez Hilton have engaged in a full-on twitter war, with Gaga accusing Perez of stalking her after a twitter fan spotted the celebrity blogger in her building. Perez subsequently defended himself, explaining that he was simply in search of some new digs, which Gaga called a blatant lie. She also referenced a text Perez sent her at the time of her hip injury, which she alleges included a message about Karma and an image of Madonna pointing a gun at the singer’s head.

There’s no indication as to what caused the initial feud, but it’s clear it began prior to Gaga’s hip injury, and Perez claims he “chose to [no longer] make her a part of [his] life.”  But whatever the source, that tension increased exponentially when Perez consistently posted accolades of Katy Perry’s ‘Roar,’ while subsequently pointing out that Gaga’s ‘Applause’ paled in comparison. It’s clear he had an ax to grind, and used his site to sharpen his tool.

There’s a larger lesson to be learned from these circus clowns though, and I’d like my readers to take a seat while I preach. Perez Hilton had a huge hand in launching Lady Gaga’s career, and when she became an international superstar, she paid him back with a friendship that included public appearances and mutual promotion. If karma exists, the only case of it is befriending an evil blogger who called celebrity children ugly and got paid for it. Many celebrities who complained about abusive paparazzi (Gaga included) had no problem appearing beside someone who perpetuated the problem. They liked the attention, and when it no longer suited them, they turned. Hypocrisy cuts deep. And Gaga needs a bandaid.

Kim Kardashian Blasts Katie Couric

20130816-133311.jpgKim Kardashian’s claws came out, and I like it! In response to a recent Katie Couric interview with In Touch Magazine inquiring as to why the Kardashian’s are famous, Kim posted a baby gift sent by Couric on Twitter with a hashtag saying, “May I humbly suggest you not send baby gifts and then talk shit.”

Well, you have to applaud Kim for calling out Couric’s hypocrisy. Here’s hoping Kim’s feisty side continues.

Mike Fleiss v. “Reality Steve”: ‘The Bachelorette’ Spoiler War

If you’re a fan of ‘The Bachelorette,’ then you know that every season of ABC’s show is met with spoilers from an internet blogger known as “Reality Steve.” It’s been the bane of ABC’s existence for years, and last year ABC received a long-awaited gift in their inbox when they discovered that Steve Carbone encouraged show contestants to violate their contract, which finally gave ABC cause to sue. They reached a settlement, but that settlement may or may not have banned Carbone from future spoilers. My guess is it didn’t, because he’s still spoiling the ending, and no one is stupid enough to so blatantly breach a contract with a big network. But according to Twitter, series creator Mike Fleiss thinks differently. Fleiss ranted about Carbone, calling him a “parasite,” and insisting that his spoilers hurt his show because, “no one wants to know who won the Super Bowl before sitting down to watch the game.” Although I understand Fleiss’ frustration, his example is sub-par. Viewers like to watch the show with knowledge of the final choice so they can look for the clues they might not have noticed otherwise. And furthermore, Mike Fleiss is a generally creepy dude that should probably stay off twitter. He likely has limited knowledge of the legal system and what would constitute a breach of contract, so in the end, he’s needlessly exposing his ignorance.

LeAnn Rimes Bakes Great Birthday Cakes

Just when you thought LeAnn Rimes could not get any more ridiculous, she bakes a cake and proves you wrong. She tweeted the photo below of the birthday cake she made for Eddie Cibrian, and wrote, “Eddie’s favorite things bday cake!” When his children asked for an explanation, do you think she said, “Eddie really likes to take naps?”

AnnaLynne McCord Sans Makeup — OMG

I have mixed feelings about this. Though I appreciate AnnaLynne McCord’s effort to remove the veil between celebrities and real people, I also don’t think it’s the best idea. It’s one thing to remove airbrushing, it’s another to remove all excess and look ordinary. Sure she’s still beautiful, but there’s a certain mystique celebrities should maintain, and removing that mystique removes star-power.


Denis Leary Insults Dick Clark — Heartless Prick?

If you don’t know Denis Leary, he’s the guy who’s accused of ripping off the late comedian Bill Hicks’ entire act. He’s also the guy who can’t wait a week to make a joke about the legendary Dick Clark’s death, tweeting, “With Dick Clark dead, Casey Kasem now reveling in his status as last and reigning king of leather faced syrup voiced lizard people.” Perhaps it’s time to either fire the guy writing his tweets or hire a guy to write them.
