“I remember a lot of pain . . . "
For a few weeks now, Bill Cosby has been at the center of a firestorm of controversy in the wake of various women alleging that Cosby had raped them. These rape allegations have existed for years but they’ve recently come to the forefront after a stand up comedian made a joke a few weeks ago referencing the years of Cosby rape allegations. Then, one after the other, women have come forward to tell their stories regarding sexual abuse they say they suffered at the hands of Bill Cosby. Last night, model Janice Dickinson made an appearance on Entertainment Tonight to reveal that she, too, had been raped by Bill Cosby back in 1982. She says he drugged her before he assaulted her … which is something that Cosby used to joke about in his stand up routines. Wow. Netflix announced previously that Bill Cosby would be getting his own comedy special but, in the wake of these rape allegations, they have decided to postpone the special. Cosby, for his part, denies everything. Click below to hear Janice share her story, in her own words. More »
OH MY GOD (of Thunder)
People magazine has announced the man they have selected as the Sexiest Man Alive for 2014 and, wouldn’t you know it, they went with Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth as this year’s main man. Hemsworth, as you should be well aware, has played a range of roles in films but he is probably best known these days as the golden-haired hottie who brings the Marvel Comics superhero Thor to life on the big screen. A happily married father of three, Hemsworth is exactly the kind of man that People likes to select as the year’s sexiest … handsome, approachable and safe. More »
"School is not authentic because it ends."
Willow and Jaden Smith, 14 and 16 years old respectively, are featured in the new issue of the New York Times magazine T and are getting a lot of attention for their comments in the magazine. To be honest, when I first read excerpts of this interview posted on social media, I didn’t really pay much attention because the comments were so odd that I assumed they were fake comments generated for humor. I mean, the things that these kids say in this interview are so out there that it’s easy to see why anyone would think the comments are fake. On the one hand, I would really like to applaud Jada and Will Smith for teaching their children to be such free thinkers … but the rational side of me can’t help but shake my head in disbelief that the nonsense that these kids are spewing is too ridiculous to be a good thing. I’m almost at a loss. Read on to get a taste of the world these kids live in and see what you think about their outlook on things. More »
Back in July we first heard that serious discussions were underway for the production of a Sons Of Anarchy prequel series to occur after the current 7th and final season of the show finishes its run next month. Today we revive those hopes for a SoA prequel series thanks to a new interview with SoA actors Kim Coates and Theo Rossi. The guys appeared on Larry King Now to promote the final episodes of Sons of Anarchy and Larry asked them their thoughts on the possibility of a SoA prequel series. Watch the video above to see what the guys think about a prequel and the possibility that one of them might appear on the show.
"Nobody wants to help us because...'Shut up, millionaires!'"
As we all know, Jennifer Lawrence is on a huge press tour for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 (which I saw, and really, really enjoyed). She recently gave an interview in which she described the feeling she has in dealing with paparazzi, and she sounds incredibly stressed out (at least when they come around, which is often). But she also made a point to acknowledge the fact that, well, she’s a millionaire and so nobody really cares that she gets “scared” leaving her house. Click inside for more.
Taylor Swift is seemingly the only topic of any real conversation these days so it makes sense that Time magazine would put her on this week’s cover with the caption The Power of Taylor Swift. Taylor made headlines when she recently decided to pull all of her albums off of Spotify because she feels she is not being compensated enough by the free music streaming service. As a result, she has become a lightning rod in the discussion over streaming music overall and what it means for artists and musicians. Her decision to pull her music off of Spotify is discussed in Taylor‘s interview with Time, which you can portions of below. More »
... she is totally mum on when she plans to release it
It’s November and typically that means that Rihanna is ready to release a new album … but, it’s mid-November and we have yet to hear anything from Bad Gal Ri Ri about the imminent release of anything. While she was in Washington DC earlier this week, Rihanna did confirm that she has new music for us to listen to … but she didn’t offer any information WHATSOEVER about when we might hear this new music. In fact, her refusal to offer any real details about new songs or a new album means we may have to wait a while longer to hear anything new from Rihanna. Blah. Click below to read exactly what she said about her new tunes and speculate along with me, won’t you? More »

The video embedded above has been online for a few years now but it’s just now making the rounds again due to its very disturbing nature. When Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope was being filmed, a different voice was used for Darth Vader before James Earl Jones‘s deep, sonorous voice was added. The video above lets you hear what Darth Vader sounds like with his original voice, provided by David Prowse … and it is very unsettling. Ready to have all of your dreams dashed? Click above to hear what Darth Vader really sounds like. I’m so sorry.
This is cute.
Now this is an interesting turn of events.
