Check out the first edition of Pop Culture Countdown after the jump!
Happy Friday, everyone! Is it just me or was this a particularly L-O-N-G-G-G-G week? Brutal. But, we made it to the weekend and that’s what counts. Welcome to the first entry in Pop Culture Countdown! Here’s a quick rundown of how this space will live: basically, it’s five quick bits and blurbs from the world of celebrity news and entertainment that stood out or struck a nerve, mixed in with a dash or two of commentary. And by “commentary,” I mean “snark.” And by “dash,” I mean “buckets.” Kidding. Sort of. A little. Not at all. OK, let’s get this hush puppy on the road!
Swiftie vs. Fey-lor
Am I the only one hoping/praying/lighting candles that Amy Poehler will make a cameo on this week’s “Saturday Night Live” to do a “Really?!?! with Seth and Amy” segment solely to tackle this ridiculousness?
The lowdown: Taylor Swift, commenting on being joked about by Poehler and Tina Fey during the Golden Globes, told Vanity Fair, “You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people, because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’”
Poehler’s response: “I feel bad if she [Swift] was upset. I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl. That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff.”
Yes, Taylor, women should support each other. We should also learn how to laugh at ourselves. And also know when not to sing live.
Chris Brown fights over $10
Really, Chris? You yell obscenities and threaten a valet staffer because you don’t want to shell out 10 bucks for your car? Outside a charity event for kids? Ohhh, Breezy, how your insane ability to be the biggest douchewad anywhere you go never fails. And P.S.: Whose bright idea was it to invite Mr. Probation in the first place? Who emceed the event: Jason London?
The Karate Kid is how old?!
Daniel-san? More like Daniel Grandfather. First Michael Jordan turned 50 and then this week we get hit with the whammy that Ralph Macchio is now the same age, 51, which Pat Morita was in the first “Karate Kid.” I almost choked on my Metamucil when I read that.
J. Simp slips and reveals…
…that regardless of the years that pass or the scales that fluctuate, she’s always one chicken-of-the-sea sound bite away. While chatting about her pregnancy this week on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” she said, “I’ve been vomiting and the crazy thing is I never knew that a wiener could actually make me nauseous.” She quickly realized she’d just revealed the sex of her baby, something she had not intended. Baby brain-flub? No, that’s just Jess. Classin’ it up, one interview at a time.
Who knew turning 19 could be so awful?
For Justin Bieber, who turned 19 last Friday, the first week of his last teen year has been as rough for him as him wearing appropriate fitting pants. Around his waist. With a belt. Painfully tough. He can’t do it.
The week started with him being accused of taking Will Smith’s 14-year-old son, Jaden, to a London nightclub, all of which led to reported confrontations! Early exits! Angry tweets! Cries of “worst birthday ever!” Then a few days later, hell froze over: Bieber was booed. By his fans. Who paid money to see him in concert. They booed because Mr. Teen Dream kept the sold-out mass waiting nearly two hours. Then it was reported today that Biebs got into it with a photographer in London. Let’s just say, according to reports, if it was a drinking game to take a shot for every time he dropped the F-bomb, we’d all be under the table till Sunday. Of next week. Justin, Justin, Justin…your hyper-speed descent into total douchedom continues to impress. Even Kanye and Scott Disick are taking notes.
Catch ya on the flip side!
