Comments

Britney Spears tells tabloids (and ex Jason Alexander) to "kiss my lily white southern Louisiana [expletive]"...Um, thanks, but no thanks. I don't know where it's been. Or more accurately, I know some places where it has been and that is already TMI.

Fergie named "Woman of the Year" by Billboard magazine...And Depends.

Kurtis Blow busted for pot possession...With that name you'd suspect cocaine instead.

24-year-old French break dancer Brahim Zaibat -- who is allegedly dating Madonna -- says she's a woman "just like all the others."...Lady GaGa on the other hand...

"The Social Network" sweeps National Board of Review Awards...Better check your network security guys.

Mel Gibson's "The Beaver" gets spring 2011 release date...I predict a How I Met Your Mom guest stunt episode.

Michael Bay directs Victoria's Secret holiday commercial...featuring the exploding teddy set.

Win some, lose some: Ryan Gosling was fired from "The Lovely Bones" but is an odds-on favourite for the starring role in something called "Puffer Fish."


"Kurtis Blow busted for pot possession." Zero points for a not-quite-aptonym.


Kudos to Justin Long (and Hoda, for that matter). The only way I'd sit next to Kathie Lee for an hour would be if my suit was tailored by Al Qaeda of New York.


Clearly, Brahim Zaibat doesn't know anything about (a) Madonna, and (b) women.

One the one hand, I really don't want to see Mel Gibson's Beaver at all. On the other, I don't think I can wait until spring to see Mel Gibson's Beaver. I'm dammed if I do, dammed if I don't.


"Michael Bay directs Victoria's Secret holiday commercial." If anyone can make mostly-nekkid supermodels unwatchable, it's Michael Bay.


"'Three Stooges' movie is back on." I think I speak for everyone who's ever seen a single frame of film of the original Three Stooges: "Why, I oughtta..."


"'Three Stooges' movie is back on." I think I speak for everyone who's ever seen a single frame of film of the original Three Stooges: "FML."


"Gary Busey will drive you insane." Thereby leaving you insane *and* endocrine system-less. Check with your HMO before clicking on the link.

"Michael Bay directs Victoria's Secret holiday commercial." Wait, what? Didn't Congress just ban overly loud television advertising?

Madonna's dating another hot young thing. Seriously, isn't it going to be kind of awkward when Lourdes starts dating guys who are the same age as her mother's boys?

James Franco looks like Johnny Depp with the facial hair. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

However, I'm not sure there's anything *right* with a sentence containing the following words: Mel Gibson, beaver, release date.

Seems like one would double check that he should before gaining 60 pounds for a role... mmm Haagen Dazs...

Are insane Gary Busey gifs a thing now? Because I feel like they probably should be.

Maybe they can do a cross-promotion with the Hudson's Bay Co.?


"Three Stooges" movie is back on, but needs a new cast.

Is Warner Wolf available?


24-year-old French break dancer Brahim Zaibat -- who is allegedly dating Madonna -- saysshe's a woman "just like all the others."

Most women (and men, for that matter) like to be told they're special.

Erin Barry's "denial" isn't quite a total denial. According to the article, she wrote, "I DID NOT HAVE AN AFFAIR WITH TONY PARKER, nor did I 'pursue' Tony Parker." (In other words, she's not denying a so-called emotional affair, nor that Parker might have pursued her).

Yeah, and Bill Clinton "did not have sexual relations with that woman," either.

With apologies to our esteemed colleagues at the Lizard Island law firm, it's not wholly surprising to learn that Barry also mentions in her public statement that she's a law student.

Hey all LTL popping in to say -

1. Justin Long is funny I can see why one of my favorite comeback stories (Drew Barrymore) likes him

Happy Birthday to Little Lurker! I'm so verklemt...

PS I see Beaver and Release and I think of Mr Burns saying to Smithers:

"Release the BEAVERS!"

I think the French always view women as "like any other" except for, inexplicably, Brigitte and Edith Piaf.

"Britney Spears tells tabloids (and ex Jason Alexander) to 'kiss my lily white southern Louisiana [expletive]'" -- Well, she did once sing, "with a taste of your lips, I'm on a ride." Talk about "toxic"....

"Quentin Tarantino denies he's working on a big-screen version of 'The Shadow.'" -- Is he or isn't he? Only The Shadow, etc., etc.

"Justin Bieber draws a 'stache" -- Today; tomorrow he finds a beard.

"Fergie named 'Woman of the Year' by Billboard magazine" -- Now "Women of the Year" is a movie I'd rather see Quentin Tarantino remake. Anyone who saw Lauren Bacall in her version of that film came to the conclusion that Lucille Ball made a perfect "Mame" by comparison.

"Ricky Gervais and Emily Blunt sign on to new Muppets movie" -- Ricky seems to be hitting his 15 minutes. Muppets? Really?

"Justin Long sits in for Hoda Kotb on 'Today'" -- Kathie Lee, to her credit, was confused after a while that it wasn't really Hoda. But she just thought Hoda had lost weight and changed her hair.

"Because she'll have something really tiny to dress up." -- I bet Rachel Zoe is not please that this pregnancy is more than doubling her usual body weight. I can just see the baby announcement now. "Zoe Zoe was 19" long and weighed 8 lbs. Her mom is still 60" tall and once again weighs 7 lbs. Both mother and daughter are doing well and are eating out of the same Gerber's container with little rubber-tipped spoons.

Wait, is Taylor Swift single again?

Wow, I don't even know where to start today. So much snark, so little time ...

Justin Bieber has enough testosterone to grow a 'stache? That's right up there in the disbelief category with Rachel Zoe and Nicole Richie's pregnancies.

"Because she'll have something really tiny to dress up." ... in addition to herself and most of her clients?

Uh, Brit dearie, you are about as far from lily-white as it gets.

Erin Barry is clearly unfamiliar with the concept of an emotional affair.

Is it just me who got a fit of the giggles that someone with the last name of "Blow" got busted for drugs?

People still break dance? Really?

Well, Gary Busey IS insane, soooo ...

[singing]
There's a place in France
Where, yeah, they still break dance
And the men wear glasses
to see Britney's lily-white Louisiana [at some point the meter breaks down completely, but I'm singing this particular version just like Serge Gainsbourg would, so ça ne fait rien. Donnez-moi une cigarette, je vais cherchez les femmes].

It's going to be a lot more awkward when Lourdes' dates are older than Madge's boys.
