Starbucks Apologizes For Offending Southern Woman With Foamy, Caramel ‘666’

Starbucks 666A Baton Rouge woman who bought coffee at a Starbucks at the Mall of Louisiana received a large amount of both humorous and concerned comments after sharing a picture of her two drinks.

With a matching “666” and pentagram art drawn in caramel, the woman, Megan K. Pinion (so close to the ultra satanic “minion”) wrote that while she was “in no way judging” the beliefs of the barista, she judges his “lack of professionalism and respect for others” and was “appalled” by the imagery.

“I am a teacher in the public school system and if I were to present a child of atheist or pagan believers with a Christian art project I could be sued in a heartbeat,” she stated.  Continue reading “Starbucks Apologizes For Offending Southern Woman With Foamy, Caramel ‘666’”

Gwyneth Paltrow is Saying Silly Things About Her Divorce

Gwyneth Paltrow Chris Martin dinnerContrary to the headline, Gwyneth Paltrow really hasn’t said anything too “silly” about her divorce, but many do seem offended by her seemingly stuck-up refusal to actually call it a “divorce” in her original and follow-up statements.

In the first, she left a bad taste in the mouths [of people who probably already hated her] by using the term “conscious uncoupling” to describe her separation from longtime douchehub Chris Martin.

Recently, Paltrow published a recipe brutal guide to cutting off a chicken’s legs and head with a little “P.S.” message attached. “CM and I in deep gratitude for the support of so many,” she wrote.  Continue reading “Gwyneth Paltrow is Saying Silly Things About Her Divorce”

Michael Sam to Become First Openly Gay Pro Football Player

Mizzou Football Media DayIf defensive end Michael Sam gets drafted by an NFL team in May, he will become the first currently playing professional football player to identify as gay.

Sam, who was named SEC Defensive Player of the Year for his work with the Missouri Tigers by the Associated Press, recently came out publicly in interviews with both the New York Times and ESPN.

In the sit-down with ESPN, he speaks of the hardships he endured as a child and young man. “Telling the world I’m gay is nothing compared to that,” he admitted. “That,” being multiple family traumas including witnessing the death of his older brother from a gunshot wound and having another brother go missing in 1998 while the other two sit in jail.

The NFL has released a message of support, saying they admire his “honesty and courage.”

“Michael is a football player,” the statement read. “Any player with ability and determination can succeed in the NFL. We look forward to welcoming and supporting Michael Sam in 2014.”  Continue reading “Michael Sam to Become First Openly Gay Pro Football Player”

Gay Dads Kordale and Kaleb are too Fabulous For This World

black gay dads instagramSuper handsome African-American dads Kordale and Kaleb weren’t very surprised when people threw racist and homophobic shade at them for posting a photo of their morning routine with two of their three daughters on Instagram.

While the couple acknowledged in a statement to the Huffington Post that what they do in the comfort of their home is “no one’s business,” they also recognized that they knew the photo might get attention and they couldn’t go off the rails just because a bunch of assholes disagree with their lifestyle.

The only thing that surprises me is that common situations like this continue to shock others and are still considered “different,” even in the eyes of total jerk bigots with way too much time on their hands.

James Gandolfini’s TV Family – Edie Falco, Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Robert Iler – React to His Death

James Gandolfini sopranos familyActor extraordinaire James Gandolfini’s sudden passing in Italy on Wednesday shocked me, your mama, and the millions of other people who tuned into The Sopranos or saw any one of the notable movies (Get Shorty, Zero Dark Thirty, 8MM, The Mexican, Killing Them Softly etc.) he starred in.

Gandolfini worked with everyone from Brad Pitt (who called him a “gentle soul and a genuinely funny man” in a statement), to John Travolta to younger actresses like Kristen Stewart, Olivia Wilde and Saoirse Ronan.

Perhaps most taken aback, with the largest outpour of kind messages, his Sopranos’ family helmed by Edie Falco, Robert Iler and Jamie-Lynn Sigler, who played his wife, son and daughter on the hit show.

Falco said she was “devastated” by the news, calling the love between Tony and Carmela “the greatest I’ve ever known,” while Sigler (Meadow Soprano) released the following words to Us Weekly: 

I spent 10 years of my life studying and admiring one of the most brilliant actors, yes, but more importantly, one of the greatest men. Jim had the ability, unbeknownst to him, to make you feel like everything would be alright if he was around. I treasure my memories with him and feel so honored that I was an up close witness to his greatness.  Continue reading “James Gandolfini’s TV Family – Edie Falco, Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Robert Iler – React to His Death”

Royal Palace Sh*tting Crumpets Over Kate Middleton’s Baby Bump

kate middleton bikini baby bumpThe palace is going crazy over honeymoon photos of Kate Middleton published in Italy’s Chi (proudly fucking with the royals since 1997).

She is neither topless nor bottomless. Just in a bikini, pregnant with a pinto bean.

All of Britain’s tabloids passed on printing the very unshocking images of Kate and William vacationing in the West Indies out of “respect” (or fear that their heads would be severed quicker than you can say “She ain’t no human being”).

A St James’ Palace spokesperson issued a statement that the family is “disappointed” over the breach of privacy. As usual, their reaction is more sensationalized than any headline, photo, or story. God save the Duchess.

Palace Says William Popped Kate’s Middle (‘The Duchess of Cambridge is Expecting a Baby’)

Kate Middleton pregnant hockeyAfter 50 million tabloids whispered about every biscuit and sip of tea that found itself in Kate Middleton‘s belly, the palace has confirmed that there actually is a royal half-blood Prince baby on the way!

The Associated Press released an official statement from Buckingham saying, “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby.”

Also in the statement, a massive list of relatives who are happy for the couple, and something about Kate being like all pregnant women (needing rest and a hospital visit).

Middleton does have hyperemesis gravidarum (severe morning sickness) and I advise Will and Queen Elizathug to put her in that spinning ballroom from The Haunting surrounded by 20 diamond toilet bowls.

Actor, Bodyguard, And Professional Teddy Bear Michael Clarke Duncan Dead At Age 54

Michael Clarke Duncan, the actor with the ominous physical presence, booming voice, and the sweet-as-cotton-candy personality died at age 54 Monday morning due to complications from a heart attack.

Sources report that his passing came “very suddenly.”

On July 13th, Duncan suffered from cardiac arrest but was saved by his fiancé, reality star Omarosa (Celebrity Apprentice, The Surreal Life), who performed CPR on him before he was admitted to an Intensive Care Unit.

At that point, his rep told the media that he was “stable” and on the road to a full recovery. Those words are especially bitter to hear now that we know he was in the hospital for seven weeks prior to his death.

LeAnn Rimes In A Facility For ‘Emotional Issues’ Relating To Cyber-Bullying

Country singer LeAnn Rimes is having trouble dealing with the stress of fame, particularly those who would call her out for having an extramarital affair with D-list actor Eddie Cibrian.

Cibrian, Rimes’ current husband, was married to F-list model Brandi Glanville (who later joined the cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) when they began their relationship, and Rimes has unraveled at the public’s constant “homewrecker” nagging since 2009.

If the weight loss wasn’t a big enough sign, LeAnn is now in a non-traditional rehab-like facility to help her cope with adversity.

TMZ is reporting that she is allowed to leave on weekends, and use the phone.

Christopher Nolan Talks Colorado Shooting

Christopher Nolan released a statement through his publicist in L.A. (he’s a dual citizen of the UK and U.S.) addressing the shooting in Colorado that happened during a showing of his movie, The Dark Knight Rises. The gunman, who reportedly referred to himself as “The Joker” to the police after his arrest, opened fire on a theater that was a mere 21 miles from Columbine high school. Nolan wrote:

“Speaking on behalf of the cast and crew of ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ I would like to express our profound sorrow at the senseless tragedy that has befallen the entire Aurora community. I would not presume to know anything about the victims of the shooting but that they were there last night to watch a movie.  Continue reading “Christopher Nolan Talks Colorado Shooting”

Steven Tyler Breaks Up With His Mistress, ‘American Idol’

After two years of watching amateurs sing, American Idol judge Steven Tyler is departing from the show to do what he does best. No, not breaking gender boundaries and confusing people who have poor eyesight – being a frontman!

He released a statement yesterday saying he wanted to focus on Aerosmith.

“After some long…hard…thoughts…I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress American Idol before she boils my rabbit,” he said. “I strayed from my first love, Aerosmith, and I’m back.”

J-Lo and Randy Jackson may also not be returning but there has been no confirmation either way. Adam Lambert, Miley Cyrus, Will.i.am Katy Perry, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj are rumored to be eyeing the position(s).  Continue reading “Steven Tyler Breaks Up With His Mistress, ‘American Idol’”

The NOAA Wants You To Know That Mermaids Aren’t Real

After the Discovery Channel aired a special called Mermaids: The Body Found” the U.S. government felt obligated to issue an official online statement declaring that Ariel and her trident-wielding people are not real.

This coming shortly after a CDC spokesperson told The Huffington Post that zombies don’t exist either.

“CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead,” said David Daigle after the bath salt/face-eating incident in Miami.

The National Oceanic And Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) feeling a need to let us know that seductresses of the seas are non-fiction seems even less necessary.  Continue reading “The NOAA Wants You To Know That Mermaids Aren’t Real”

One of Jerry Sandusky‘s six adopted children, 33-year-old Matt Sandusky, has come forth as one of his father’s victims. Lawyers for Matt confirmed the news yesterday and that he is prepared to testify.

Attorneys Andrew Shubin and Justine Andronici said in the statement:

“During the trial, Matt Sandusky contacted us and requested our advice and assistance in arranging a meeting with prosecutors to disclose for the first time in this case that he is a victim of Jerry Sandusky’s abuse.”

‘Game Of Thrones’ Beheaded And Piked George Bush

Game Of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss got in trouble on Wednesday when fans brought attention to the use of a prosthetic George W. Bush head in a scene with the severed prop stuck on a pike.

Benioff and Weiss point it out on the DVD commentary (season one was made available for purchase on March 6) for an episode, saying:

“George Bush’s head appears in a couple of beheading scenes, it’s not a choice, it’s not a political statement. We just had to use whatever heads we had lying around.”

HBO and the creators issued statements to apologize with the two creators continuing to explain that it was not an intentional blow against Bush as a president and that they didn’t even know it was being utilized.  Continue reading “‘Game Of Thrones’ Beheaded And Piked George Bush”

Adele’s Chest Infection/Tour Cancellations

Due to a fairly severe but not life-threatening cold and chest infection, Adele has cancelled two tour dates in the UK. Shows today (September 4th) in Plymouth and tomorrow (September 5th) in Bournemouth.

Adele already canceled nine shows in North America due to a bout of laryngitis in June. Poor girl, I imagine that she is extremely exhausted from globally promoting her album 21 since the end of 2010…
