One county in Alabama has haled ALL marriages entirely
Back in January, a federal judge ruled that Alabama’s state law banning same-sex marriage is unconstitutional, which essentially made same-sex marriage legal in the state. As soon as the ruling was handed down, the state of Alabama appealed the ruling to the state supreme court which, yesterday, issued a defiant ruling that will not recognize the federal court ruling that overturned the state’s ban on same-sex marriage. Basically, the state of Alabama is doing everything it can to NOT allow same-sex marriage to exist in its state borders … which is sickeningly reminiscent of the state’s defiance of racial desegregation back in the 1960s. As a result of this new Alabama state supreme court ruling, the county of Mobile has decided to halt ALL marriages for the time being. Clearly, the state of Alabama is now a terrible mess of hatred and legal confusion … which is only entirely sad and embarrassing. More »

Bobby Brown will not appear on this show
UGH. While Bobbi Kristina Brown‘s medical condition remains unchanged (she is still unresponsive, on life support, with organs failing), we are hearing today that members of Bobby Brown‘s family have figured out a new way to cash in on BK‘s medical drama for their own ends. For weeks now, Bobby‘s family members — namely his sisters Leolah and Tina — have been giving interviews to anyone who will ask (and pay, I’m guessing) about Bobbi Kristina‘s health … they’ve been doing this so much that Bobby had to issue an official statement asking the media to stop talking to his family about his daughter. Today we learn that the Brown sisters, Leolah and Tina, and Tina‘s son Shayne are currently filming a reality TV show that will focus on the emotion and speculation surrounding BK‘s failing health. Ugh. I bet you didn’t think the Brown family’s exploitation of Bobbi Kristina‘s tragedy couldn’t get any lower. More »
Actually, he makes it work
Just a short time ago we saw that actor Jared Leto went and cut his long hair and shaved off his facial hair in preparation for his role as The Joker in the upcoming DC Comics movie Suicide Squad. Right now, we learn that fellow actor (and artist) Shia LaBeouf is rockin’ a new hair’do of his own. Shia has decided to go ahead and grow a rat tail because … why not? It’s unknown if Shia‘s new rat tail ‘do is meant for a new movie role or if he’s just expressing himself but … honestly, it’s a look that he can pull off, surprisingly well. Shia is also sporting a new facial piercing so, yeah, he’s deffo got a newish look going on these days. More »

In the best way...
Aghhhhh. I just finished watching last night’s The Good Wife, and it was so appropriately titled. “Dark Money,” indeed. I’m about to write my review for Paste Magazine, but I just had to talk it up a bit on here. I know I’ve converted a few of you recently, but if you’re still not watching, OMG please get your life in order. If you are watching any TV show at all, this needs to be one of them. Last night we saw Alicia do some things we NEVER, ever expected her to do and it was incredible. And dark. And sad. And made for great TV. As is usually the case with this show.

And her apology video only made it worse
Guys. There is actually a teeny bit of vomit in my throat right now. But I’m gonna go ahead and keep writing for now. With my mouth clamped shut. Okay. Michelle Rodriguez has become another celebrity to fall prey to the random, TMZ street interview. I don’t get it. Why do people open up to the TMZ “reporters”?! Don’t you know they are there for one reason—to get you to say something stupid, for which you’ll have to apologize the next day? Well, I watched the video in which Rodriguez scoffed at “minorities” in Hollywood trying to “stealing all the white superhero roles.” She actually seemed kinda drunk to me, and I was hoping that was the case—that she wasn’t serious. I even laughed, because it sounded SO ignorant. Then came the “apology” video… in which she went on to blame “minorities” for being “lazy.” OMG. I flash backed to my interview with Spike Lee (yasss), where he made it very clear that the only problem blacks in Hollywood are having is money—funding for their projects. Of which there is often none, or very little. Anyway, click inside for this ridiculous, embarrassing shit.

He says the leaked photo was a fake
A couple of weeks back Twitter went crazy over an [allegedly] unretouched photo of supermodel Cindy Crawford. Because Crawford hadn’t made a statement about it, I was a little skeptical. At the very least, I got the sense that it wasn’t an image she wanted out there, and I also thought it was odd that people were championing the photo as some kind of proof of something. I mean, we all should know by now that celebrities and all people of means have access to the best in skincare, plastic surgery, and photoshopping. I’m just not about looking at unretouched photos and saying, “Oh, cool, that makes me feel better.” We should all be feeling good about our bodies, and even though I know that’s not already, always the case, I don’t think the solution is releasing unretouched celebrity photos—especially when said celebrity doesn’t know about it. As a feminist, there’s something that bugs me about that. So I’m not surprised to hear that this story about Crawford‘s photo isn’t over—and now there’s a potential lawsuit coming.

Is this real or nah?
A video is making the rounds that clearly shows a naked man climbing out of a window of what is claimed to be Buckingham Palace. As you can see above, the video appears to show members of the British royal guard in front of the palace and in the background, a naked man can be seen climbing out a window and down a tied bed sheet of the the palace. To be honest, it’s impossible to believe anything you see like this on the Internet so I doubt it’s authenticity. Even still, it’s a funny video that is worth watching … real or not. Have a look, see what you think. If this is a real video, any guesses whose window this naked man is climbing out of?

Seriously, this sounds SO BAD
Earlier today we learned the great news that two of the main characters in the forthcoming Jem and the Holograms comic book series will be gay but for every bit of good news we get about the Jem comic book series, we get really disappointing news about the Jem and the Holograms live-action movie. As you may recall, we got to see the first promo image from the forthcoming Jem movie earlier this week and today Universal Pictures follows up with the release of the official plot summary for the movie. As you can read below, the plot description of the movie bears absolutely no resemblance to the storyline from the Jem cartoon of the ’80s whatsoever. It sounds like this Jem movie has excised pretty much every thing about Jem and the Holograms that made the original cartoon so great. Ugh. More »
“Saban is trying to shut ‘Power/Rangers’ down”
So, remember that AMAZING fan-made short film that we saw yesterday that gave us a much darker, very cool version of the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers which was created by director Joseph Kahn? Well, it turns out that the company that owns the Power Rangers franchise is pissed off that the film was even created and they are doing everything they can to shut down the short film Power/Rangers. Kahn informs us that Saban Entertainment has been harrassing him about the film and is trying to legally have the film removed from the Internet … with little success. You see, Kahn‘s fan-made film is a parody made up of entirely original content. Yes the film is based on Saban‘s characters but under the terms of free use, Kahn‘s fan-made Power Rangers short is not infringing on any copyrights held by Saban. Click below to learn more about this back and forth feud between the owners of the Power Rangers and the savior of the Power Rangers. More »
A pathetic statement, I might add
For whatever inexplicable reason, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences decided not to include the late Joan Rivers in the In Memoriam tribute that aired during the telecast of The Academy Awards on Sunday night. As soon as the tribute was shown, a great many people took to Twitter to voice their displeasure at the blatant omission. In response to the angry outcry, the Academy released an official statement that is so pitifully short that it’s almost not worth mentioning. Considering Joan’s long career in entertainment, including her appearance in more than a dozen films over a thirty year period (including Spaceballs, Rabbit Test’ and the documentary film A Piece of Work, to name but three), one would think that the simple mention of her name during the Oscar In Memoriam tribute might be warranted.
