Off the Wall: Michael Jackson’s Doctor’s Trial

The Judge in Michael Jackson’s doctor’s trial has come out saying that he is “comfortable” allowing tv cameras in the court room during the trial.  Translation:  Superior Court Judge Pastor is “comfortable” with the ridiculous, media circus that will surround this trial, the way it always surrounded Michael Jackson when he was alive.  It sounds like someone has a little  Judge Ito envy……


Christina Aguilera, Terrorism & the Anthem

Christina Aguilera apparently “flubbed” during her performance of the National Anthem at the Superbowl.  Some people were both shocked and offended by her error in the lyrics.  And they should be.  The reality is that Christina Aguilera is a terrorist.  Her so-called “flub” actually revealed her political and ideological leanings.  It was far more than just an error:  It was downright unpatriotic and anti-American – it was terrorism.  And it all took place on the holy day of Superbowl Sunday.  I am willing to bet 10-1 that she knows exactly where Bin Laden is hiding and has her own personal cave in the mountains of Afghanistan.  Yes, my fellow Americans, she used our very own anthem against us, lowering our morale and the morale of our troops.

So if you were offended by Christina’s version of our anthem – you should be.  She is the reason that we have to take our shoes off at airport security, can’t carry liquids in our carry on baggage and are forced to live at the mercy of our government while they take advantage of our worst fears.  Some say error.  I say terrorism.

I also say that this is all a crock of BS and if you were offended by Christina’s errors in her performance, you need to get out a little more.   The only offensive part of her performance was that hideous drag-queen make-up that she insists upon wearing paired with brutally over-processed hair.  On second thought, that just might be terrorism… Up the alert level!


Brad Pitt Thinks Jennifer Aniston is Pathetic??

So the latest word on the never-ending Jen and Brad saga is….that Brad thinks Jen is “pathetic”.  The story according to the ever so reliable US Weekly goes that Brad believes that Jen only did the Architectural Digest piece on her home to get his attention.  She was apparently not interested in architecture at all when they were married and only did the cover to get to him as he was on the cover in 2009.  He calls her cover on his favorite magazine “Pathetic” and “Desperate”.

As I have previously mentioned, the whole Jen can’t move on from Brad thing drives me a little crazy.  Jennifer just finished a renovation of a house that she loves for over 2 years and I can’t blame her for wanting to showcase it.  Poor Jen just can’t get any credit for moving on from her dissolved marriage 5 years after the fact.  Portraying Jennifer Aniston as a desperate woman who can’t get over Brad is what is pathetic.   I don’t heart this crap!

Check out my prior post on this issue for some in depth review: Give Jennifer Aniston Some Credit.


I Heart Sandra Bullock: Girlfriend Can Keep A Secret!

Wow!  All I can say is WOW!  Sandra adopts a little boy and manages to keep it a secret for months even while surrounded by a  s**t storm of press.  Between winning an Oscar and a huge scandal of infidelity on the part of her husband, Sandra kept her adoption of little Louis under wraps for three months!  Color me impressed.  Apparently through her network of family and friends, after Sandra left her home with Jesse James, she managed to stay underground.  Those are some very good and faithful friends!  It seems absolutely impossible for a celebrity in this day in age to keep anything a secret, especially when they are surrounded by the paparazzi, but she did it!  One heck of a covert operation.  You go Sandra!


I Still Heart Casey James: Cougar Bait Returns….

He was back once again tonight stunning the ladies –  cubbie and cougar alike!  He looked freakin’ sexy and hot as always.  This week Casey sang “Lawdy Miss. Clawdy” for Elvis week on idol. Nobody on Idol needs to prove that Casey is one hot piece o’ man.  However they did try to capitalize on our cougar bait pick of the season by sticking him on that little round stage with the set up of screaming girls and Ryan Seacrest (who can really be bloody annoying.  Sometimes I wish Simon would actually hit him).  It was a cheese fest.  A tidal wave of cheese.  He’s hot.  Trust me, we know.  There is no reason to turn it into a ridiculous cheese-o-rama.  Just let that beautiful boy do his thing without the theatrics of “he’s hot’.  He is hot – plain and simple!

As for Casey’s performance, it was great, as always.  But the truth is that he is….well….it wasn’t super innovative.  I loved it personally and not just because Casey has been fueling me through my dirty thirties these days.  I love his blues sound.  In many ways, I think that beyond his drop dead gorgeous look, the singing style of Casey James is a matter of taste.  He clearly seems to me to be a natural blues performer and I love that style of music.  But for American Idol, he might just not have enough variation to make it through.  And I do believe that he is one of the most talented performers on the show, but maybe not American Idol material.  Look at Adam Lambert.  He switched it up week after week making us wonder what he was going to do next.  Take a look at Crystal Bowersox.  She seems to stay true to her genre, yet switch it up just enough to keep us intrigued about what she will bring us from week to week.  She is genius at switching up her musical arrangements.

I feel the same way about Casey.  What will he bring to us each week?  He is always good, but he is leaving me wanting something more (and I am not just talking about the dirty stuff here people!).  It feels like he could indeed do more and that this week was indeed a “wasted opportunity”.  Of course he chose the very bluesy Elvis tune.  Of course.  And it was great.  But there is more in there if this very sexy man can just figure it out!  And I hope he does because I for one would like to see a lot more of him.

Check out Casey’s performance this week:


I Heart Jessica Simpson au Natural!

Jessica Simpson rocks!  She is a naturally beautiful girl, that is true, but I am sure any one of us would have inhibitions about taking off our makeup and baring all for a major magazine cover like Marie Claire.  But she did it and as a woman she makes me plain proud!  It is my personal opinion that women should not wear make-up before the age of 30.  One has that natural glow of youth in their teens and 20’s.  You have a whole lot of years to wear make-up, so enjoy your youthful glow while you can. Jessica looks amazing and I love the statement that she is making and the message that she is sending to young women.  I think the incident with the ‘Mom Jeans’ has transformed her.  You go Jess!  I heart you au Natural!


Brad Pitt: Give Jennifer Aniston Some Credit People!

I have got to take a stand for Jennifer Aniston and since this is my blog, I am going to do it!  Though her marriage to Brad Pitt ended five long years ago, the media treats Jennifer like this pathetic creature that spends her days and nights pining for her lost husband, stolen away in the night by the irresistible vixen, Angelina Jolie.

If the media aren’t claiming that she is woefully waiting for him to come back, then she and Brad are secretly ‘Hooking Up’.  There was some special photo session of her beautiful home recently and tabloids took the opportunity to tag out areas where “Jen cries for Brad”.

Lets face it people, they broke up fiver years ago.  Do you sit around and pine for the ex guy or girl you had five years ago?  When I think about the guy I was with back then, all I can think is thank dear God I came to my senses!   And I am sure that a beautiful, smart and talented woman like Jenn doesn’t lie around her house moping either.  Are Brad and Jenn hooking up?  Doubt it!  And does Jenn harbor a deep dark hatred for Angelina Jolie?  Doubt that too!  Nobody likes to see their man move on quickly and easily, but five years down the road and half a dozen children later, do you think that Jenn really cares?

Ms. Aniston has handled her divorce and its never ending aftermath like a lady.  She has never spoken publicly about it.  One would think that would mean that all these years later, the press would just leave her the f**k alone.  But it doesn’t.  Instead it is assumed that she spends her days pining away for the one she lost.  Maybe it would have been better if she just did a giant, tacky tell all interview with Howard Stern?

Reality Check!

Besides the passage of time and the fact that this woman has her own life, its time to face reality.  Brad Pitt, quite frankly, has slipped a little bit.  Lets recap in pictures:

Exhibit A:  Man Candy

Hot Damn!!

Now that is one fine piece of man!  And yes he was voted sexiest man alive by People magazine like 50000 times, because he unquestionably was.

Exhibit B:  You Go On With Yo Bad Self and Fine Piece O Man Meat!

You Got 'Em Girl!

Yes, this is what Brad looked like when Jenn had him.  Fine, fine and more fine.  A beautiful couple.

Exhibit C:  The Slide.

WTF is up with that beard??

Was he out fishing in the North Atlantic on a crab boat for months on end??

That beard is nasty.  Just plain nasty.  There might be squirrels nesting in there.  It ain’t good people.

Exhibit D:  What Angeline Got:

Sorry Angie.

Sorry Angie

And there you have it folks, the downhill, bearded slide of Brad Pitt, formerly known as the Sexiest Man Alive.  So is Jenn all down and out wishing that Brad would leave the temptress Angelina and their brood behind?  Not a chance.  Every time she sees that nasty beard, I am sure she is patting herself on the back thinking about how she dodged a bullet.  The bullet being that nasty ass beard!

So Media and Tabloids – Listen Up!  Shes Just Not That Into Him!
