There are lots of excellent reasons to criticize the current media culture. But even in his own (really long-winded) words, Alec Baldwin just comes across as an egotistical, entitled jerk.

It’s also worth saying that early in Madonna’s career, a lot of people said that she was just a flash in the pan and that she was all shock value and no substance (around Like a Virgin). So, if Miley really applies her talent and intelligence, who knows.

“But a true innovator will be able to come up with something new, it remains to be seen what that may be.”
Exactly. A true innovator will be able to think farther outside the box than just taking off more clothing, or simulating more sex acts.
So much has already been done that it’s incredibly hard to do something new artistically. That’s why there are so many people trying to be artists, and so few great artists.
And why it’s exciting to watch artists emerging who might have that potential. I’ve never thought that about Miley before, Trent, but I’ll definitely be watching now.

I see what you’re saying. I agree that Miley is actually really intelligent and that she knows exactly what she’s doing with mocking American imagery etc.
I guess I still see Madonna as more of a trailblazer, and all the younger pop stars (including Miley) as staying within her territory. Which isn’t as impressive to me. While Miley is definitely being rebellious and pushing boundaries, I don’t think she’s really doing anything new.
Maybe I’m giving Madonna too much credit, but I feel like she really did do a lot of things that no female pop star would have done before her. But Miley is still not really doing anything Madonna hasn’t done.
So I guess to me, to be the “new Madonna” you can’t just copy her, you have to be a trailblazer. When Miley starts doing things that no one before her, not even Madonna, has done, then I might start calling her the new Madonna.

“It’d just hate for there to be so much information that people get “sick of hearing” about Dylan‘s abuse and discount her claims altogether.”
Yeah, I hear that. But sadly, a lot of people are “sick of hearing” abuse claims as soon as they hear them. It seems to me that the people who want to discount her claims are doing so already. The problems she’s facing for continuing to speak out are the problems that made her speak out in the first place.
It’s sad, but as a survivor myself, I can say that speaking out is pretty much a lose-lose situation in a lot of ways.

I feel like it’s wrong but…. I kinda do want to see that…

What kind of sentence would he actually get for something like this? Or will it just be a financial settlement?

Yeah, I was reading this whole thing like… ok Shannon, I see why you think remarrying is romantic, but to RICK SALOMON?? Nothing involving this man could possibly be cute or romantic!!
Oh Pamela. Such an awesome woman, with such TERRIBLE taste in men.

Is he making fun of his nude scene in True Blood that everyone went crazy over? I think I love him even more now.
