    MTV ^ | 07/04/2014 | by John Walker
    With today being the Fourth of July and all, I feel it’s my civic duty to unite us, if but for a short time, with the one act of blind patriotism we can all get behind: counting down the most over-the-top, overwhelming renditions of the national anthem, as performed by Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, and the rest of your favorite divas of pop music. (In no particular order, of course, so please don’t tweet me death threats. Thanks!) To clarify, by national anthem I mean “The Star-Spangled Banner” only. (As in, the actual, official national anthem.) That...

  • LaBelle’s 100G slap for shrieking at tot (Patti LaBelle - same old attitude)

    NY Post ^ | September 5, 2012 | GEORGETT ROBERTS and BRUCE GOLDING
    That was a costly temper tantrum. Disco diva Patti LaBelle belted out a profane tirade against a pregnant mom and her little girl in the lobby of a Manhattan apartment building — and now, she has agreed to pay for it to the tune of $100,000, the plaintiff’s lawyer told The Post yesterday. The Grammy-winning singer allegedly shouted the F-word, called mom Roseanna Monk a “c--t,” and drenched her with bottled water after complaining that Monk’s then-18-month-old daughter was playing near the lobby door of an Upper West Side apartment building where LaBelle was staying in 2010. When Roseanna —...

  • Martha Stewart on Sarah Palin: "Very Boring" [Calls Sarah Palin "A Dangerous Person"!!!]

    Martha Stewart on Sarah Palin: "Very Boring" Don't ask domestic diva Martha Stewart to break bread with, buy a book from, or listen to a speech by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. Palin is pushing her book with a presidential campaign-style bus tour of so-called "Red" states and Republican-leaning cities. She may be on magazine covers and Fox News, fut Stewart has apparently tuned out the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee and self-styled "hockey mom." "I wouldn't watch her if you paid me," Stewart told a TV interviewer on Monday. Why not? "She's very boring to me," Stewart replied. "She's...

    Michael Crabtree celebrated his 22nd birthday Monday. As an unwanted gift, multiple reports surfaced that the 49ers are poised to drop their offer to the No. 10 overall pick out of Texas Tech. Citing team sources, Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports wrote that Crabtree's continued absence makes him less valuable to the 49ers on a prorated basis and added, "Translation: The team just reduced its offer and will continue to do so with each passing week." A day earlier, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reported that the 49ers sent a letter to Crabtree "modifying" their offer. Responding to the Fox...

    “It’s depressing,” said Steve Biegun, a veteran foreign policy hand who tutored and staffed Palin and travelled with her through the fall. “We worked our asses off. It was a tough campaign. Then we have this?” Biegun emphatically made the case for his much-maligned former boss. “I think she was fantastic. She just brought a special energy to our ticket. Look, I was there at those rallies.” Adds another former campaign aide: “You know what she did for us. She certainly solidified a hell of a lot of [previously unenthused Republicans].” “I’m appalled by it because Sarah Palin was one...

"The stress has caused her to blow up at her staff for small infractions on the set," charges NEW YORK magazine reporter Joe Hagan, in a story set for publication on Monday. "During the tuberculosis story in June, Couric got angry with news editor Jerry Cipriano for using a word she detested— 'sputum' —and the staff grew tense when she began slapping him 'over and over and over again' on the arm, according to a source...

For your enjoyment, here's most of it: 'Tis right before seven, On the set of 'Today,' There struts a smug diva, Who wants things her way. Her cheeks are quite rosy, With layers of rouge, Eyeliner so heavy, She looks like a stooge.She positions herself, High up on a stool, Then maneuvers her legs, As if they are tools. Her plan is to showcase, Her new Jimmy Choos, Oblivious to, Those...

    When she became the first black woman to win the best actress Oscar, Halle Berry hoped she would be the first of many. Three years on, however, no woman has repeated her success. So Miss Berry, 38, has launched a savage attack on Hollywood producers and directors, accusing them of racial prejudice. "The struggle for a woman of colour to find good material is still very present, and it's a struggle I fight every day," she said. Miss Berry said there was such a shortage of decent roles on offer that she had resorted to buying the rights of books...

    Forty-five seems like a little old for an adult to decide to grow up, but it's better than never. In an interview with ABC last week, fading pop star Madonna addressed the fact that she's been less than a role model in her career. She looks back on her provocative act over the last two decades and concedes it was meaningless. She told interviewer Cynthia McFadden: "I did spend at least a decade taking off my clothes, and being photographed; saying bad words on TV ... And I thought I was liberating mankind. But like I said, I wasn't really...

    SORRY: How TSG cost 60 Minutes a Jacko exclusive FEBRUARY 5--It took almost three days, but the first lawsuit has been filed in connection with Janet Jackson's breast. A Tennessee woman yesterday filed a proposed class action lawsuit "on behalf of all Americans" who watched the Super Bowl halftime show and were somehow injured by Miss Jackson's adorned nipple. In the below federal complaint, Terri Carlin, a 47-year-old Knoxville bank employee, contends that Jackson's exposure and other "sexually explicit conduct" during halftime festivities caused viewers to "suffer outrage, anger, embarrassment and serious injury." Details of those supposed injuries were not...

    After the news of Britney Spears's 55-hour marriage to her childhood friend Jason Allen Alexander, I got an e-mail from one of my many homosexual correspondents (you'd be surprised), one with whom I had previously had some friendly exchanges about same-sex marriage. The gist of it was: "This is the institution you are trying to save?" I take his point. I don't say I feel any better-disposed towards homosexual marriage than I was pre-Britney, but there is no denying the guy has a debating point. If a couple of likkered-up glitterati airheads can stumble into a wedding chapel, tie the...

I want to tell everyone what we face if we allow the mean-spirited, intolerant, racist, homophobic, gun toting, extremist Republicans to retake the Senate. If we don't keep the Senate in Democratic control, more people will wake up in bathtubs full of ice, missing one or more of their kidneys. If we lose the Senate, more adults will be stuck with AIDs infected needles left in theater seats and gas nozzles. And, more children will die from heroin overdoses from...
