The tragedy in Newtown has evoked sympathy from around the nation, and with that sympathy comes…. a few extremists who should be disallowed from opinion-sharing, like Westboro Baptist picketers, people who blamed the video game Mass Effect, Louie Gohmert, and Victoria Jackson.
Jackson, a former SNL alum, is now famous for sad but hilarious tea party rants like the one after Obama was re-elected, where she wrote that she couldn’t stop crying because “America died.“ Also, Glee turns kids gay.
San Francisco mash-up king DJ Earworm (Jordan Roseman) releases a master mix of all the radio-friendly songs of the year in December, and 2012′s is here, ripe with van Gogh-worthy tracks from Adele, One Direction, Ke$ha, Carly Rae Jepsen, Rihanna, PSY and more.
This one’s called “Shine Brighter” and it’s bound to get actual airplay, and a video complete with clips from every artist on Earworm’s YouTube channel shortly.
Poll: which song do you hate the least? I’m going with Bruno Mars’ “Locked out of Heaven,” mostly because it’s not as old as the others and therefore less overplayed.
(I don’t quite get why “Titanium” is absent? It was released Dec. 9, 2011, but Adele’s “Set Fire To The Rain” is from Nov. 2011 and was included. Poor Sia.) Read more…
Sexiest man alive Channing Tatum and most-envied woman alive Jenna Dewan-Tatum are expecting their first child! After speculation that Dewan was sporting a baby bump at VH1 Divas, representatives for the couple told People that they are “pleased to announce” the arrival of a tiny charming potato sometime next year.
Channing said in an interview just last month that they were both “ready” for children.
“The first number that pops into my head is three, but I just want one to be healthy and then we’ll see where we go after that. It’s really easy for us guys to say, ‘I want like 15 kids.’ Jenna will be like, ‘Well you better get another wife!’” Read more…
Lady Gaga has performed with musical legends like Elton John, Tony Bennett, Brian May, Clarence Clemons. As of Saturday, you can add The Rolling Stones (a band she used to “strip” to) to the list. Gaga clomped onstage about 90 seconds into “Gimme Shelter” at The Stones’ 50th Anniversary concert at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
In heels and an unflattering striped black and gold jumpsuit that makes me want to tap her against a mixing bowl, Gaga sings like a black woman and dances like Elaine Benes took a time machine to the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival. Read more…
Tarantino has Uma, Scorsese has De Niro, and Burton has Johnny and Winona. Ryder hasn’t appeared in the flesh for a Tim Burton-directed feature since 1990. “Here With Me” gets fans a fraction closer.
Brandon Flowers and The Killers enlisted Burton to direct this nearly five-minute long video about a sometimes blonde/sometimes brunette starlet, her fan, and a wax figure. Read more…
Sixth highest-paid DJ in the world Deadmau5 (real name: Joel Zimmerman) proposed to LA Ink star Kat Von D over the internet on Saturday.
“I can’t wait for Christmas so…. Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?
@thekatvond,” Zimmerman wrote in a public Twitter message that included a picture of the ring.
Holy fucking shit, Jesse James’ sloppy seconds, complete with face tattoos? She’s perfect!

New information about 20-year-old shooter Adam Lanza and his 27 victims was released today including the names of the deceased, a report from the Chief Medical Examiner, and descriptions of Lanza as told by classmates and neighbors.
Most who met or knew Adam said he was smart and quiet. The words “camera shy” appear in his 2010 high school yearbook in the place of a photo, which might explain why he did not have a Facebook page.
Former classmate Olivia DeVivo told the New York Times that the residents of Newtown “weren’t surprised” that he was behind the massacre because “he just didn’t really connect” with the community.

With the amount of rampant samples and auto-tune flying around in music, you’d probably be at least a little shocked to hear of a relatively unknown artist being denied use of a sample.
News outlets, politicians and the Twitter/Reddit/Facebook generation are bringing their boxing gloves to the table today either in favor, or against a forum on stricter laws regarding guns. In one corner, we have men and women who, at some point, felt threatened enough by their surroundings to “need” a gun or two to “survive,” standing by others from rural red counties who were taught to hunt and clean a rifle at age seven.
