    "I swear to Lucifer," Lady Gaga said on the Jimmy Kimmel show. The question that has to be asked here is: Why are Conservatives putting up with Roger Goodell's offensive half time, Super Bowl entertainment when Hollyweird and the music industry got away with attempting to heap shame on President Donald Trump's inauguration? The Super Bowl arguably is the most watched entertainment event in America. But why is the public, year after year subjected to Satanic symbols, dark entertainment themes and offensive displays of female nudity at outrageous ticket prices? In a Spy Kitten video, watched by over 4 million...

    Stanley Cup > Super Bowl I’m from Detroit. We’re saddled with the Lions. This means I’ve never faced a scenario where I actually care about the outcome of a Super Bowl. For me, the game is more about having friends over, opening a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle, and stirring up a massive pot of my award-winning* chili. We watch the game, the ads, and the usually-terrible halftime show without any real investment in the winners and losers. It’s an “entertainment thing” more than a “sports thing.”

    I currently have 4 nieces/nephews engaged, with weddings planned over the next 2 years, so this news caught my eye:  the average cost of a wedding peaked at $35,000 last year. Wow, that’s a pretty big investment. Especially when there seems to be an inverse relationship between the cost of a wedding and their longevity.Or as Willie Nelson put it: “it would be cheaper if I just found a woman I don’t like very much and buy her a house.” In fact, a tiny house is one of the items the WaPo notes could be bought for the cost of...

    While there are few actually confirmed details as of now, there's apparently a massive, star-studded "We The People" concert being planned for Miami on the day of Donald Trump's inauguration. The idea is to counter Trump's inauguration and garner higher television ratings than the swearing-in. Normally, the presidential inaugurals carry several a-list acts, but Trump has had issues booking artists to perform. So far, the only confirmed acts are Jackie Evancho (singing the National Anthem), the Rockettes, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Rumored artists include Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Elton John. [...]To add insult to injury, concert...

The diehard Hillary Clinton supporter, who had campaigned alongside the Democratic candidate just hours before the polls opened Tuesday night, shared a photo of herself holding up a “Love Trumps Hate” sign while standing on a sanitation truck outside of Trump Tower in New York City. “I want to live in a #CountryOfKindness where #LoveTrumpsHate,” the “Bad Romance” singer said in a message to her 64 million Twitter followers.

But viewers were shocked to see Lady Gaga looking less animated than usual as she reluctantly answered questions about politics on Friday's episode of BBC Breakfast. Chatting to Charlie Stayt, the 30-year-old songstress left the audience cringing when she announced she had 'nothing to say' in an interview littered with excruciating silences. Pressing further, the BBC presenter questioned: 'He claims he represents people who have been unrepresented, who haven’t...

    A meeting with the Dalai Lama and a few pictures on social media might have negatively affected Lady Gaga's stardom in China. The pop star met with the leader of the Buddhist faith on Sunday while he was speaking in Indiana. Before the meeting, Gaga was arguably one of the most popular Western musicians in mainland China. But after she shared photos of herself and the Dalai Lama on Instagram, her account was flooded with negative comments.

First I watched The Five where Meghan McCain was filling in for Dana Perino.  Before you say anything let me say, she was actually a refreshing change of pace and somebody has been giving that girl some serious coaching and training. It’s going to be hard to overcome her dingbat Valley Girl persona, butt I will say: she is evolving in the right direction.

"In September at the opening Mass I officially announced that this was going to be the Year of Our Lady at SMI," the letter began. How nice. Except that's not what he wrote. There was someone else he had in mind to honor besides the Virgin Mary. "In September at the opening Mass I officially...

    Lady Gaga -- the flamboyant and provocative New York-based pop singer -- has been removed from a Chinese government blacklist, allowing her chart-topping new album "ARTPOP" to go on sale legally in China. But Chinese censors have placed conditions on the album art, inflating a large ball between her legs to cover more of the naked singer's body and adding a pair of black tights to the singer's bare legs. The cover of her latest album was designed by the American artist Jeff Koons, who specializes in garish and kitsch representations of the banal and everyday.

    Hyping "growing support" for same-sex marriage, CNN's Carol Costello asked a supporter of California's Proposition 8 on Monday if he was "on the wrong side of history" for legally defining marriage as between one man and one woman. Her tone fits right with Friday's CNN panel where a traditional marriage supporter was disgustingly marginalized as a segregationist and compared to a slave owner. Costello cited GOP strategist Karl Rove admitting that he could see a Republican presidential candidate publicly support same-sex marriage in 2016. She then asked Austin Nimocks of the Alliance Defense Fund, "Austin, you heard what Karl Rove...

    JAKARTA — Just a few days after Lady Gaga’s concert in Indonesia was canceled after protests by Islamic groups, I flew 1,370 kilometers from Jakarta to Padang, West Sumatra, and drove a further 130 kilometers, a four-hour journey along rough, winding roads, to Sijunjung, to visit an Indonesian atheist jailed for his beliefs. Alex Aan, a 30-year-old civil servant, is a gentle, soft-spoken, highly intelligent young man who simply gave up his belief in God when he saw poverty, war, famine and disaster around the world. He faces the possibility of up to six years in prison, charged with blasphemy,...

    Despite what you may have heard from the mainstream media, Mitt Romney does not have the Republican nomination locked up. In fact, he is rapidly losing delegates that almost everyone assumed that he already had in the bag. To understand why this is happening, you have to understand the delegate selection process. Each state has different rules for selecting delegates to the Republican national convention, and in many states the "voting" done by the public does not determine the allocation of delegates to particular candidates at all. And the truth is that delegates are the only thing that really...

She told him the first lady was unhappy with his work. Gibbs exploded in a rage, informing Jarrett that she didn’t “know what the f— you’re talking about” and that if Mrs. Obama was displeased, well, “f— her too.” Subsequent relations between the senior adviser and press secretary were strained. Gibbs told Kantor...

    Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX), a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, launched his “South Carolina” money bomb Saturday. The “South Carolina” money bomb is the latest in a series of money bombs that have raised funds for campaign events and ad buys in the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. Although Mr. Paul has not set a fundraising goal for the “South Carolina” money bomb, the Texas congressman has hauled in more than $160,000 as of 9am EDT Saturday. Mr. Paul’s most recent money bomb, the “Tea Party” money bomb, had a fundraising goal of $4...
