That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
LMAOOOOoooooo. OMG. I don’t know where we are politically when official White House press conferences are taking the time to address new Jay-Z lyrics, but this is where we are, America. Yesterday, Jay-Z released a new song titled Open Letter in which he addressed (among other things) his recent trip to Cuba with Beyoncé. Please, please, please watch this video and listen to this reporter quote the lyrics (OMG, some people should never be allowed to quote Jay-Z lyrics in a public forum), and ask White House press secretary Jay Carney whether or not it was true that President Obama gave Jigga permission to go to Cuba. I just can’t with this, ya’ll. I can’t! Is she serious? Jay-Z is such a big deal now, and people are so impressed with his relationship with the President that anything he says about Obama in a song is, from this point on, taken seriously? That is awesome; at least for Jay-Z. For our political state of affairs, it’s kinda sad that these are the things they’re talking about. Madness.
"[There was] groping, masturbation... but we did not have…sexual intercourse until years later"
Yesterday we heard more troubling news about Kevin Clash, the former voice of Elmo. Days after Sheldon Stephens, the first young man who accused Clash of sexual abuse, came forward in hopes of undoing the original settlement he’d made with Clash, a second young man came out and accused the famed star of having a sexual relationship with him when he was underage. Following this second accusation, Kevin Clash officially resigned as the voice of Sesame Street‘s Elmo. We are now learning more details about Cecil Singleton (the second accuser) and the nature of his relationship with Clash. Click inside to learn more.
Heidi Klum showed up at the press conference for the 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards and she looked so ridiculously good, and so nice, and so wholesome, I can almost put those pictures (that I secretly did like) of Obama by Terry Richardson out of my mind. Sigh. Thank you Heidi. Apparently, a host of other celebs are over in Frankfurt, Germany where this year’s awards are being held. Carly Rae Jepson (who’s in the middle of the most hilarious lawsuit ever) and Ludacris were also in the building. Luda, apparently, was letting everyone know that he has a ‘huge crush’ on Heidi. Uhhh yeah, Luda. Join the club. Peep the gallery for more! And, please, somebody get me those shooooes! Love!

Some Upgrades, Nothing Earth Shattering
Right on schedule, Apple held it’s annual iPad event in San Francisco, CA today and as anticipated announced the forthcoming release of the latest generation iPad — the iPad 3. Faster processor, high-resolution retina display screen, new camera and more! The capacity of the new iPad will be the same as the iPad 2 (16Gb, 32Gb and 64Gb) but it will also cost the same … that means, no higher prices for more capability. The big bummer, I think, is the news that the new iPad will not offer Siri voice commands. Click below for a run down of what the iPad 3 will offer when it goes on sale on March 16. More »

I mean, She Really LOATHES Them
Yesterday we saw photos of Madonna and children making their arrival in NYC after she did some promo work in Venice, Italy for her new film W.E. last week. But today we go back to Venice to watch video of Madonna receiving then audibly hating a gift from a fan. During a press conference at the Venice International Film Festival, a Maddy fan presented her with a bouquet of hydrangea flowers … flowers that Madonna quickly threw under the table as she audibly expressed “I absolutely loathe hydrangeas”. Additionally, we get to check out comments that Madonna REPORTEDLY made about Lady Gaga … which, in all honesty, sound very suspect. Ain’t it great to have Madonna back in the limelight again? Check it all out below. More »
