"Music is where you go to get away from all the BS," adds Underwood, who recently apologized for saying ex Tony Romo still calls her. "Whether it's from politics or just the world around you, music should be an escape."

Yes, Carrie. Nitwit of the Minute. Music never, ever addresses politics or the world around you.

Inviting someone to a party with David Arquette is practically daring him/her to vote for McCain.


Natalie Portman worked the phones for Obama, and there was an awkward moment when the auto-dialer called Moby's house. (You all know how *that* goes, right?)


...and now Carrie Underwood knows how the stars feel about her, *pretty much all the time.*


Friday, eight arms, a necklace of skulls, blue body paint. Today, barely a stitch of clothing. Make up your mind, Heidi Klum! (Hint: Wählen Sie Tür Nummer zwei.)


Jessica Simpson says Tony Romo "saved me"... From obscurity?


Lily Allen, you're not even Woolworth's, never mind Wordsworth.


Holly Madison calls Hugh Hefner "high maintenance". That's a big word for a fluff girl.


Another movie? You ever get the feeling there are more pirates in the Caribbean than there are tourists?


Aussie Cosmo's nothing. Australian Pedophile mag used a pic of a five-year-old Britney on *its* cover.


Anne Hathaway plays the field, doesn't she? Goes from dating a fraudster - er, billionaire - to dating a waiter - er, actor. Who's next - the architect, George Costanza?

I'd read about Tim Robbins and his voting troubles earlier. He seemed to believe that the GOP had conspired to keep widdle Tim from voting. He acted like a total asshat to the polling folks.

Get better Merle!

That's some insouciant little top you got on there, Gwyneth.

Maybe Jessica will return the favor and suit up at left tackle

If I didn't have such a girl crush on Heidi I'd hate her for that Guitar Hero ad.

Isn't that, "architect, Art Vandalay," Byoo? Or was that a different episode?

Posted by: Liz Kelly | November 5, 2008 9:08 AM | Report abuse

You're right on the name-check, Ms. Liz. I stand corrected.

Posted by: byoolin1 | November 5, 2008 9:11 AM | Report abuse

I thought Art Vandalay was in the latex business.

Gwyneth is looking really good these days, of course most of her movies still suck.

Tough to snark first thing in the morning when one is sleep-deprived.


According to the "Mirror," Madonna's divorce proceedings are reportedly interrupting her attempt to adopt 3-year-old Mercy James.

Art Vandalay was in latex.

Posted by: beaker1 | November 5, 2008 9:16 AM | Report abuse

He was a latex salesman for Vandalay Industries

Check the spelling for Art's last name...

Too many Costanza uses of that to track myself. Wikipedia sez:

Art Vandelay first appears in the episode "The Stake Out," in which George and Jerry need an excuse to give to a woman as to why they are waiting in the lobby of the office building where she worked. Their excuse is that they were meeting Art Vandelay, an importer-exporter who works in the same building, for lunch.

What will Shemarya do after he loses all of his Hollywood clients? A tell-all book, of course. What a first rate sleaze-bag. (because you know everything you read is true)

Carrie, open mouth, insert foot. Wow, fame has gone straight to her head.

Can't see the video on the guitar hero ad. Is it the Risky business, she dances around in a shirt ad, or something else? Has to be better than Phelps.

Heh - there's another version of the Heidi Klum commercial, by the way.

Perhaps it was felt that out here in the Upper Midwest, seeing a supermodel in her underwear wasn't appropriate. So the version we saw late last night (i.e. - it wasn't because of "prime time" viewing) featured her in a buttoned up shirt.

Posted by: Chasmosaur1 | November 5, 2008 9:37 AM | Report abuse

Heidi Klum takes off the shirt and dances around in her bra and underwear. I was chatting online with a male friend during MNF when the ad came on. His im'ing got tad incoherent.

Too bad pretty much nothing can save the Cowboys season this year. Thanks a lot for being a taker not a giver there Jess.

High Maintenance... I can't imagine an 80+ year old man with 2 other girlfriends requiring all that much by way of 'maintenance'.

Posted by: LTL1 | November 5, 2008 10:45 AM | Report abuse

For a minute there I thought Holly referred to Hef as a "high maintenance malignant tumor" and I thought, ewwwww burnnnn.

I'm certain the insouciant one could have worn underwear that doesn't stand out. It takes away from the dress.

You know, I'm starting to dislike Jessica Simpson. I'm losing bets with Redskins fans due to her life being saved and all. Not good.

Hey, someone has to change the diapers.

Ah, yes. Lily Allen is Wordsworth. And Britney Spears is Robert Frost.....she chose the path without panties.

Posted by: possum_pouch | November 5, 2008 12:07 PM | Report abuse

So...that article with the Carrie Underwood quote has a picture of her "attending her wax figure unveiling at Madame Tussaud's". Buuuut is the picture of her or of the wax figure? And can we get better quotes out of the wax figure?

Gwyneth's insouciance is intoxicating. Her gaze stirs this bizarre urge in me to make babies and name them Google and Jedidiah.

Michael Crichton died today, 66 years old...cancer. Some of his books were not great, others..classics.
I love Sphere (the movie was one of the world's worst) and Jurassic Park, of course. The Andromeda Strain was my first taste of science fiction.
RIP

I nominate Possum for Comment of the Week for this literary gem:

"Ah, yes. Lily Allen is Wordsworth. And Britney Spears is Robert Frost.....she chose the path without panties."

For First Runner-Up, I nominate milesdy, for his/her explanation of how Hef is "high maintenance":

"Hey, someone has to change the diapers."

I think that fears about the quality of snark declining with the sign-in requirement were overblown.

That's sad about Michael Crichton. I remember reading the first Jurassic Park and not being able to put it down. That's just sad.

I note that one of the stories headlined on the Jessica Simpson Cosmo cover is "Your Orgasm Face." I take it that the article is not about a time-tested facial cream.
