    Awesome about Sandy and Rapper’s Delight. I’m in the process of my teaching my 6-yr old this song! Ho-tel, mo-tel, Hol-i-day Inn!

  2. Stubbylove says:

    Yea! Perfect choice! Love Love Love them. And Gwen is def preggo – that’s the look/stance of a bun in the oven.

    I think the CDAN blind is about Leona Lewis. She was really big a few years ago when she won X Factor and was supposed to be big in the US but then she just kind of disappeared? Not even just within the US but everywhere else too.

    As for the Maryville rape case, i’m sick and tired of giving these criminals a free pass just because they have ~a bright future~ or ~a promising career~ ahead of them. I mean, i don’t normally condone violence but in this case? Just burn them all, i say.

    • Cel says:

      Agree regarding these rape cases. It is infuriating that only these boys/young men’s futures appear to be of concern – what about the girls? The boys involved should be made to meet rape victims and listen to how being raped has affected their lives 5, 10, 20 years later to understand rape is not something you just get over.

      • tifzlan says:

        Yeah, it just feels like no one is thinking about those poor girls at all. I can’t believe an ENTIRE town is rallying behind these football “stars”. The fact that sports takes precedence over the wellbeing of two of their own children is disgusting to me. And i don’t think making these rapists meet their victims will do anything or instill any sort of remorse in them. They probably view these girls as a badge or trophy of some sort, much like other medals that they have won over the years.

        Really, we should just send them to a gulag or something. Not even just the rapists, but everyone else condoning this sort of behavior in that town too.

    • anon33 says:

      As someone who was raped over 15 years ago, I am here to tell you that you never truly get over it, that it always affects you, and that the fear of someone else having any agency over my body is so palpable that I have to talk myself into being intimate with my husband, who I’ve been with for eleven years and who I know would never hurt me. That said, this obviously disgusts me. The boys will go on and likely be fine for the rest of their lives while the girls’ lives are probably ruined. I’m sickened by this sh8t.

      • tifzlan says:

        My heart truly goes out to you and your struggles. Rape is my biggest fear in life, and my anxiety goes into overdrive every night that i have to walk back to my dorm from class alone. It is such a horrifying crime because it diminishes so much of your light. I wish you all the best in your continuing recovery <3

    • Florc says:

      The blind item is more likely Duffy. It didn’t take much searching to find her heroin habit and rehab stints are no secret. She’s since cancelled tours and looks terrible in interviews.

      Having lived through rape it can ruin your life although I’ve been lucky enough to not suffer as much as Anon33. My heart goes out to you.
      It’s so easy for people to attack the victim. Like a reflex they assume she’s making it up to get back at these boys for whatever reason. It boggles my mind how that line of thought is so common and easily done for many people.

      Even if those guys are found to be the scum they are this girl might still have to start fresh somewhere far away from there.

      • tifzlan says:

        Oh, Duffy! I remember her from that one song and always assumed she was just kind of a one hit wonder.

        As for Maryville (and Steubenville, etc), the fact that these boys were hometown heroes who were probably coddled their entire lives and made to believe that they were some sort of special gods probably did not help matters. It’s probably why 99% of this town is rallying behind the rapists instead of standing up for what is right and protecting their children. I am angry that there are adults who think and behave like this.

        I know that there are people who lie about being raped, but the percentage of that subset is so small that it’s unfair to assume every single person who claimed to have been raped is crying wolf. What benefit would it be for the 13 and 14 year old girls to lie about something so serious? I don’t know. Like i said, rapists and rape apologists need to just… disappear and fall into a volcano or something. I have a high tolerance for a lot of thing but not this. This shit really grinds my gears seeing as i have to live in fear of being attacked every single day of life, and i have to worry about the same thing for my sisters and future daughters too.

    Blind item…I think it’s Charlotte Church, too. Fits better than Duffy.

  5. lucy2 says:

    Yay for Amy and Tina! I love them hosting stuff together.

    Katy Perry’s 2nd SNL song looked like it was part of that Deep House Dish sketch they used to do.

  6. *Laowai* says:

    They can host the Globes forever. They are that funny.

  7. Yelly says:

    Tina and Amy represent everything that is good about women in show business. This makes me happy.

  8. Lisa says:

    Well, mille grazie to the bump-watchers of the world. You’re doing God’s work.

  9. blue marie says:

    I love them together, wonder if they can piss Taylor off again?

  10. Lindy79 says:

    Love the Tina and Amy news! Here’s to talented, funny and hard working women!

  11. Blue Ivy says:

    Young athletes infintely think they can get away with anything because of the hero and glorified status they are afforded at their school. Here in Chicago, i have just told me this story about how a honor roll student was raped by two basketball players once in their car and in a restroom, after they got her drunk one night. She reported to the principal and teachers. None of them took action because these boys supposedly have bright futures in the NBA. They poor girl is also ridiculed. I have given an anonymous tip to the police station. But so far nada. Parents and teachers have a hand in failing the morals of today’s young, they think they are invisible!

    • Trek Girl says:

      The situation you are describing is not a moral failing of today’s youth, it is something that has been going on for decades and decades, and even longer.

      There are well documented cases of this happening that have been in the public eye for decades. There are crime shows that are shown every single day about cases just like the one you said. These events have been covered in the news time and again, and they aren’t that hard to find on the internet.

      It’s terrible, it’s always terrible, but what I dislike about many of the people who bemoan situations like these is the ignorance they display every single time they say “youth of today” or phrases like it. Every time they do that, it shows just how ignorant they are as to how often these things have happened in the past (even though we know of only a few compared to the true number of such incidents), how long it has been happening, and how adults play a huge role in those situations.

      It is not a “youth of today problem”. It is a problem that spans decades and generations, all kinds of backgrounds and settings, and it is failing of the adults around the youth just as much or more than it is a failing of the youth, because the adults have the authority and so often turn a blind eye and tell others to do the same.

      Again, this is not a “today” problem.

    • Spooks says:

      I cannot believe this is possible! HOW?!?
      Athletes really have that much support? Thank God that ports is separated from school in my country. HOW CAN PEOPLE THINK THIS IS OKAY?!

  12. breebree says:

    I literally cringed watching Katy Perry on SNL! Part of it was the uber-cheesy theatrics, but really she CAN’T sing. She has the “motions” down, but her voice is so…different than her tracks. Interesting that everyone seems to have the opposite opinion! Maybe I’m wrong?

  13. Anna says:

    Is there a reason why Selena isn’t even trying to sing in that clip? Does she just dance?

  14. Emma13 says:

    I think I would look like Selena if I tried to dance. Yes, I’d hit all the steps, but it would still look awkward and everything but sexy.

  15. Tiffany :) says:

    Love Tina and Amy! They are so great live!

  16. judyjudy says:

    Jennifer Love Hewitt is pregnant? How did I not know that?

  17. fancyamazon says:

    So, after watching the Selena video, my conclusion is that in order to be a “big star” these days, you don’t have to be able to sing or dance? She had her hair in her face a lot, I think to cover the fact that she wasn’t sticking to the recorded song all that well, and her “dancing” was awful. And I don’t think that you have to be able to dance. But if you can’t, please don’t. And I have seen one of her videos while out a time or two, and haven’t seen anything to make me think differently.

  18. Monkey Towz says:

    I love Amy & Tina but I love Ricky Gervais more.

  19. anais says:

    Mmmmm…..I love Ricky Gervais’s smug brand of comedy. Gag me. Half the people on here on as dumb and naive as Miley Cyrus.

  20. I doubt that blind item is Charlotte Church- she’s been very productive the last several months, not only producing new material, but touring and promoting. She doesn’t do celebrity stuff these days, but she’s definitely visible enough if you’re a fan, and she doesn’t look like there’s anything wrong.

  21. Zombie Shortcake says:

    So I followed that story about Black comediennes, and ended up on Gawker. Somebody had started a conversation on Debra Wilson. Later I checked out the conversation threads on her IMDB profile. There is this hilarious thread from 2009, where some troll calls everyone stupid and idiotic for believing another poster was Debra Wilson, and she totally set them straight that it was really her:
