Well that bit from P Diddy sure puts a new spin on Sean Diddy Combs, now doesn't it?

I'm with SamRo: There are plenty of families that could have used that flour for a meal; in fact, this Thanksgiving I was planning to make my delicious recipe for LiLo and gravy.


When I read "Helen Mirren inserts foot in mouth," my first thought was to hope she was wearing that red bikini at the time.


Prince goes door-to-door for Jehovah's Witnesses, making that the first time anyone's ever been excited to have them at the door. In fact, Prince had to ask people, "Let's Not Go Crazy."


Snoop Dogg's California neighborhood evacuated ahead of wildfire - and firemen get there just a few minutes late and need to order 200 pizzas shortly afterward.


And so Sean Combs invents another nickname for himself: Pube Diddy.

I didn't realize his full name was Jamie Foxx, DDS.

I'm sure if Helen Mirren had said those things in a bathing suit, no one would've paid attention to the words.

"Prince goes door-to-door for Jehovah's Witnesses"]

The big difference between Jehovah's Witnesses and Christians is that the Watchtower Society's central core creed proclaims Jesus second coming in October 1914.
They sometimes try to obscure this failed prophecy,and say that he came 'invisibly'.Yes,all other Christains are awaiting Jesus return,the JW say he ALREADY came back in 1914 and is only working through their Watchtower society.

Just when you thought Madonna couldn't get any tackier. Does she really need to ask fans for cash donations when she's already fleecing them with concert ticket prices?

Oh Dame Helen, don't talk, just wear bikinis.


Prince is a Jehovah's Witness? This gives Purple Rain a completely new meaning now.


Said a rep for Ms. Abdul, "There's no issue with spirits." Well, unless you counts the vodka, tequila, whiskey, Scotch, rum...


Not to get too graphic here, but Diddy, if your grooming is causing you pain, I think you might be doing something wrong.

byoolin and I clearly think alike about Helen (Does the "Calendar Girls" DVD come with extras? Anyone know?). Dorkus, good one re: Diddy. (Ouch!)

Speaking of shaving, Justin Timberlake could use a razor stat. I can't decide about that SNL skit. On one hand, Beyonce is a good sport (she's certainly no actress) and Paul Rudd always looks like he's having fun.

But Justin? You're not as funny as you think you are, pal. The mincing dancer bit won't win you any props either. Yes, you are in good shape, but one day you may have kids who will be humiliated by that video (well, that and the overrated "box" video). Sometimes? Just say no. Thank me later.

Timberlake should be a SNL cast member at this point. That video is hilarious.

Diddy has officially jumped the shark and managed to raise the bar in TMI territory.

Britney Spears was going to play the Virgin Mary?! That ship has sailed (speaking of Justin Timberlake). Bad, bad, BAD idea.

Ordinarily at this point I would throw in a bad pun along the lines of how she was going to sing the movie theme song, "I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet the Mother of Our Lord" -- but since lightning may strike if I did that, I won't.

Speaking of SNL, for anyone who missed this Saturday's "Weekend Update," Seth Myers commented re Babs' selections that they indicate that apparently "she's easily fascinated." Celebritology chatters drew a similar conclusion on Friday.

Madonna first wanted to be Angelina, now she wants to be Oprah. With a side of Tom Cruise, since the school will teach Kabbalah.

SamRo has a point. If the anti-fur people are against eating meat too, they shouldn't be take food people CAN eat away from them.

Suge Knight arrested for drugs and assault. And in other stunningly obvious news, the sun rose in the East this morning.

To be fair to the PETA people, they were using the all-white bleached flour that has no nutritional value to it. Now if they were using whole wheat flour, then I would be really upset with them.

I'm also proud that Wanda Sykes is gay. It makes heterosexuality much less scary.

Nosy's right, definitely check out SNL's Weekend Update. It was particularly timely for the discussions we had last week (is Seth Myers a Lizard?) He talked about the "easily fascinated" Baba, Madonna's quote about A-Rod stating that "Madonna has the heart of a hot woman inside the body of a velociraptor," and more Justin Timberlake. IMO, his spot on the Weekend Update was funnier than the Beyonce sketch and he even made fun of the old "...in a box" sketch. It almost redeemed the rest of the show...including Beyonce's metal hand.

Man, I really do love JT on SNL these days, though I don't like him anywhere else.

It's not so much that he's extraordinarily funny - it's the meta joke. Because you know as he's doing these skits, he's probably pulling on his years of boy-band-dom...

Hey, Chasmosaur, don't forget JT was on the Mickey Mouse Club, so he knows how to handle poorly written jokes and lame gags.

Paula, it's a tragedy about the suicide of your disturbed stalker, but worry not, because there's no such thing as ghosts (just hallucinations in your head).

Lindsay, Samantha, Jamie, Dame Helen, Diddy:

Ordinarily I don't go for activists throwing things at people (It's all good fun until someone loses an eye) but in the case of the flour bomb on Lindsay Lohan, I'll make an exception.

I thought the Beyonce skit was pretty funny and I applaud JT for being willing to potentially humiliate himself...I mean beyond having been in a highly successful boy band and being Britney's first love.

Dame Helen's comments don't work for me whether she's wearing a track suit or a bathing suit. Someone needs to pull her aside and tell her to shut her yap.

In defense of Helen Mirren (she of the photoshopped bikini pix), rape victims historically have been treated poorly both by law enforcement and the courts. This is what makes rape the most under-reported crime. Even now.

Cut the Dame some slack.

I'm a bit on the fence about Mirren. Her comments seem to support "blame the victim" mentality, but I'd be careful about projecting our cultural standards onto another. From what I've read about rape/sexual assault victims' rights in the U.K., they are still operating with that misogynist mindview that "she really wanted it so it isn't my fault." It isn't too much of a leap to expect that some jurors would have that mindset as well.

Posted by: jelo | November 17, 2008 11:56 AM | Report abuse

jelo and Mudge make excellent points, namely that one shouldn't automatically shoot a messenger bearing bad news, in this case re alleged poor handling of rape cases in the UK. It's just that Dame Helen seems not to be condemning the system, or else is doing so with too much subtlety for my insufficiently caffeinated brain.

Thank you, thank you, Queen Liz!!! I crawled off to my lizard-nest Saturday night right after "Weekend Update" so missed the Beyoncé skit (on video above). In terms of willingness to mock herself or let herself be mocked on SNL, this ranks up there with the "Wayne's World" skit Madonna did, that is, a classic!

Why pelt Lindsay with flour? After all, she wasn't wearing a coat made of tortured, plaited wheat sheaves. She should be pelted with dingleberries. I'd be glad to contribute some.

I'm afraid I don't see Dame Helen beating up the British legal system as much as she is beating up on those of her own gender. She says, in these comments, that she believes women go against women because they are culturally or genetically pre-disposed to do so. Her comments, below, hardly condemn the system. She also strongly implies that women jurors are unable to recognize/differentiate between rape and consensual sex. I think that's a pretty ignorant remark.

'Whether in a deep-seated animalistic way, going back billions of years, or from a sense of tribal jealousy or just antagonism, I don't know.
'But other women on a rape case would say she was asking for it. The only reason I can think of is that they're sexually jealous.'

Maybe we could swap shoes because I know he's tiny so his feet can't be any bigger than a women's size 5 1/2. I'd sit through an hour of his Watchtowering to trade shoes with him.**lesigh** I'd even let him sing stuff from Under The Cherry Moon if he'd swap shoes!

Helen Mirren might have been going too far back to try to figure out why women won't find a guilty verdict in a rape case, but seem to say "a woman was asking for it." It is flat out fear. If they believe that the woman was at fault in someway, the female juror never has to worry about being raped because SHE would never behave "that way."

Okay, onto happier topics. Elias did you at least ask her if the baby still died?

LTL unlurks long enough to ask - what's up with the ominous black screen that has replaced the SNL skit??? "Content Rejected" - rejected by whom???

In other news, my problem with Mz Mirren's comments is what ever their intention or meaning, they were suitably opaque enough that someone with half of a reasonable brain (which is about all we can ask for these days) could interpret it as either saying women are unwilling to convict a rapist or that date rape is not an easy conviction, neither message (whether a statement of fact or her opinion) is a good one for any person who's public statements are considered to have some value, ought to make (and by virtue of having been a victim of the same crime, her opinion does carry weight).

If it is truly a problem, she's not exactly offering what can be done to solve it, so all she is doing is adding to the problem, intent or no.
