"This is artistic rape!!"
Just two weeks ago, at the very end of November, two of Madonna‘s unfinished demo songs were leaked online while she was with her family in Malawi celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon her return to the US, Madonna was informed of the violation and she shared with the world her upset and displeasure at having her music stolen and leaked online. Today we learn, unfortunately, that more of Madonna‘s songs have been leaked online … a whole album’s worth of music (which isn’t due for release until next year). 13 unfinished demo songs, which are widely believed to make up the entirety of the album she’s been working on and has yet to even announce formally, have made their way to the Internet and are being widely shared among fans. Madonna is aware of the album leak and she released a short message to fans about the leaked music. More »

"He is the man you thought you knew"
Yesterday we learned that Bill Cosby made a statement regarding the growing number of assault allegations that have been coming at him over the past few months (tho, some of the allegations have been coming at him for many years) and today we learn that Cosby‘s very supportive wife Camille has issued a statement of her own. Camille O. Cosby has formally issued a statement to media outlets voicing her unwavering support for her husband, “The man I met, and fell in love with, and whom I continue to love“, in an attempt to offset the barrage of negative reports that continue to come out. Click below to read the full text of Camille‘s statement to see what she has to say on the matter. More »
"Let me say this ..."
For the first time in weeks, since the onslaught of rape and assault allegations were most recently leveled against him, Bill Cosby broke his silence in a tweet thanking his supporters. This weekend, Cosby spoke out more significantly by giving a statement to The New York Post when asked to comment on the numerous claims of assault that are being made against him, almost on an everyday basis.

"I don't think Christmas Day is quite the time to be trading slaps"
British TV network Channel 4 approached Morrissey with an offer to broadcast an Alternative Christmas Message opposite Queen Elizabeth, II‘s annual Christmas Message to subjects. Channel 4, I think, was hoping Moz would jump at the chance to skewer the British Monarchy with a scathing message that might generate ratings for their network. They were wrong. Morrissey has decided to decline Channel 4‘s offer and posted an official message online explaining why he decided not to broadcast his very own Alternative Christmas Message on British television.

Last week, two unfinished demo songs by Madonna were leaked online while she was off in Malawi celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday with her children. Well, Madonna is back home in the US this week and she is just now finding out about the leak of her songs. Maddy posted a photo of a broken iPod on her official Instagram profile along with a caption expressing her displeasure at having her music stolen from her and released without her approval. I think it’s safe to assume that the leaking of her music was really an unauthorized act and not an attempt at generating hype for her new album. More »
Beth Ferrier accused Cosby in 2006, and "lost everything"
I don’t know why I’m writing this, exactly. I think the people who are asking the question, “Why are Bill Cosby‘s accusers just now coming forward?” are not likely to be persuaded by the logic in this new story. As I’ve said, celebrity/hero worship is a helluva drug. But, ya never know. And Beth Ferrier‘s statements are also helping me better understand what is going on here. At this point I think we’re at 18, maybe 218 women who have come forward over the years and accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault or rape. From what I’ve seen, the stories are all pretty much the same. Nearly all of the women were aspiring actresses, and any others were already working in the industry—women who had a lot to lose if they went up against Cosby. Click inside for more.

"It must be a fan video"
The self-proclaimed “god of fuck” Marilyn Manson, who built a career on insulting as many conservative sensibilities as possible with stunts like ripping up Bibles in concert, promoting Nazi imagery and selling merchandise depicting blasphemous imagery of Jesus Christ (to name but a few career highlights), has issued a statement denying that he has any association whatsoever with the leaked video that we saw yesterday that features Lana Del Rey being sexually assaulted by Eli Roth that has been attributed to him. Despite the fact that Roth went on the record last year to reveal that he, LDR and MM collaborated on a “sick video” that was unfit for public release, Manson wants everyone to know that he has nothing at all to do with the video that surfaced this week.

Rumor has it she is dating Charlie Ebersol

And altho Britney won’t name names, rumor has it that the new man in her life is writer/producer Charlie Ebersol. Click below for more deets about Britney‘s reported new man. More »
"I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me."
Apple CEO Tim Cook has never made his sexuality a secret among his family, friends and co-workers but it’s not something that the man has spoken about or acknowledged publicly … before now. Back in June, Cook was accidentally outed on TV when a host on CNBC spoke openly about Tim‘s homosexuality on live television. Even after he was outed, he never denied his homosexuality … but he never actually commented on it either, again, until now. In an essay that he wrote for Bloomburg Businessweek, Tim Cook formally comes out as gay in the most public way possible telling the world, “I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.” More »

NFL Teamless once again
Sigh. In early September, we learned that the Dallas Cowboys officially signed Michael Sam to join their practice squad after he was let go from the St. Louis Rams football team. Today we learn that the Cowboys have decided to cut Sam from their team as well. Michael, as you might be well aware, became the first openly gay player in the NFL earlier this year but now … he’s teamless again :( More »
