It’s the PCC!
God bless Pop Culture Countdown! This week the illustrious Karalee is taking us on a Pop Culture smorgasbord! So much craziness… Literally, cray cray.
I’m not going to hold the PCC down… Because who can really hold the PCC down!
Let’s forego the pleasantries and just dive right in, because you know the PCC has something to say about a certain baby moniker — the first being “Why, God, why?” Here we go…
What’s in a Kname?
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have named their baby girl North. As in North West. As in, why would you do that to your child? As in, please rot and go away and never procreate again. Other baby names they considered: Wild and Mountain. Silver lining (and yes, I’m desperate to find one): no silent “K.”
Baby North has no middle name (no need to saddle her with more of your “creativity,” Kimye).
The directionally-challenged duo will call their daughter Nori — which is Japanese for seaweed. Something tells me these brain trusts don’t know that.
Hold on to your hats and have CPS on speed dial — it’s going to be a long upbringing.
Text ya later
Katy Perry told Vogue magazine that Russell Brand informed her via text he was divorcing her.
She quickly searched and unearthed the emoticon for the middle finger. Via text? Really? Even an “I’m sorry. I can’t. Don’t hate me.” Post-It would have been better.
Kid Rock put Justin Bieber on blast this week (well there’s a sentence I never thought I’d type), telling Howard Stern that the Biebs reminds him of Vanilla Ice. And not in a good way.
Stern tried to play the other side of the coin, noting Vanilla Ice was a one-hit wonder. Kid’s response: “Well then as soon as Bieber has a hit, he’ll be like Vanilla Ice.”
Ooh, burn! Romeo, Michigan in the house!
Son of a Bic
Quentin Tarantino responded to actress Diane Kruger’s claim she once saw the director fire an actor for not brining a pen to rehearsal.
“Any actor who shows up at rehearsal without a pen to make notes in their script isn’t professional enough to either be in my movie or worthy enough to be trusted with one of my characters.” Of course, if you bring a pumice stone, all is forgiven.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, consider yourself lucky.
Paula Deen was a no-show today for her scheduled interview with Matt Lauer on “Today.” Apparently she had second thoughts about discussing her use of the N-word. And her affinity for making racist jokes. And her desire to have black cater waiters pretend to be “slaves” while working at a Southern wedding. Look alive, Braid Paisley and LL Cool J: I think you’ve found your surprise cameo for the “Accidental Racist” remix. Batter and deep fry this puppy all you want: She is vile and her “rationale” is as repulsive as her butter-clogged arteries.
Before signing off, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the tragic passing of James Gandolfini.
Of the countless tributes for the beloved actor, one of my favorites is the one by the New Jersey restaurant featured in “The Sopranos” final scene. The booth, where Tony and his family sat in the classic shot, is being kept empty, with a sign that reads “Reserved.”
That’s all for this week, friends…catch ya on the flip side!
