A collection of views, gripes and nonsense
“I have worked very hard to get
where I am,” Paris Hilton, citing
her promising career as one of the
reasons it’s not the right time for
her to marry rich guy fiance Paris
Britney Spears is auctioning off a bunch of the stuff she doesn't use anymore to benefit hurricane relief charities. Jewelry, furniture and several pairs of outdated sunglasses that are totally 2001 are included in the auction. However, the real prize is a jewel-encrusted bra that is currently going for $30,000. But I'm sure there's something of the more than 400 items that's more affordable. We all want a piece of Britney, and here's our chance. I give this charitable gesture an "A-", because nothing can beat Sean Penn going out with his boat in the streets of New Orleans.
Gripe of the week
It's about time that celebrities stop naming their kids. I can handle names like "Rose" or "Rainbow" or "George Foreman IV," but things have gone too far. First, Jason Lee of "My Name Is Earl" and Kevin Smith's films named his son Pilot Inspektor. That kid should do just fine in grade school. Now this week, Nicolas Cage has had a son with 21-year-old wife Kim and decided to name him Kal-El. Sound familiar? It's the same name Jor-El gave to his Kryptonian son before he was sent to Earth, where he became Clark Kent and eventually Superman. The boy has some big feet to fill. Why not just name him Hercules? Or how about God?
*Nsync wishes they had this love
I hate it when divorce is the biggest news of the week, because it brings
back such painful memories ... like "Mrs. Doubtfire." But Us Weekly is reporting
that the gosh-darn cutest couple, Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson are finally,
actually calling it quits. One is stupid and successful; the other is neither.
Poor Nick might have to call for a 98 Degrees reunion because his gravy train is
The fifth season of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" is in top form on HBO. This time Larry is trying to find out if he was adopted. So far, he's also had to look for a way to win back the lesbian collective that loved him, control his racist dog and change the sandwich named after to him to something without whitefish. It's the same as "Seinfeld," only better.
Generate detailed animated drawings of yourself and your friends (or celebrities you wish were your friends), with more than 20 categories including eyes, hairstyle, etc. It may sound a little lame, but this is the closest I get to drawing.
can’t wait to see Ashlee Simpson
perform this weekend on “Saturday
Night Live.” I wonder if there will
be some joke about a “mix-up” before
her first song? This is really going
to take a courageous effort from the
young harlot — I mean starlet. She’s
going to be great because, after
all, she’s been a “musician” for
almost three years.
Go to the 4AD Web
and check out a free track from TV
on the Radio. They were in the
studio and got totally mad about the
hurricanes and made a song about how
they hate George W. Bush. It’s
called “Dry Drunk Emperor” and it
proves, once again, that liberals
make the best music.
