    This week, the Met Gala took place in New York City. The event has always been a showpiece for celebrities seeking to make a splash, from Rihanna in her Pope costume to Katy Perry dressed as a chandelier. This year’s event was designed in homage to Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on Camp.” According to Sontag, “camp” is the “love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration.” In reality, camp according to Sontag is something else: a deliberate attempt to tear down boundaries. “Camp taste,” Sontag wrote, “turns its back on the good-bad axis of ordinary aesthetic judgment.” “[H]igh culture,”...

    Stars didn't take kindly to Attorney General William Barr and his release of a redacted report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller. On Thursday, Barr claimed in a contentious press conference that Mueller found no evidence of collusion between members of Donald Trump's presidential campaign and the Russians during the 2016 election. "After nearly two years of investigation, thousands of subpoenas, and hundreds of warrants and witness interviews, the Special Counsel confirmed that the Russian government-sponsored efforts to illegally interfere with the 2016 presidential election but did not find that the Trump campaign or other Americans colluded in those schemes," Barr...

    Several Hollywood celebrities are pushing New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to eliminate the wage difference between hourly employees and tipped workers like waitresses and bartenders. Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Williams, Amy Poehler and Amy Schumer are among the more prominent actresses pushing the proposal. But, not suprisingly the waitresses have written a letter to the celebrities, telling them "no thanks." New York Times: Waitresses and other servers are resisting the proposal, saying they can make more money from tips and do not need celebrities to help protect them from harassment. Harassment is a real concern, they say, but so...

    Actress Jada Pinkett Smith admitted on Monday she holds prejudice against white women with blonde hair, claiming that they bullied her throughout her childhood because of her appearance. “I think what crushes me, specifically in my relationship with white women, the thing that really breaks my heart is that white women understand what it feels to be oppressed,” Pinkett Smith said during an episode of her Facebook chat show, “Red Table Talk.” “Because of their sex,” her 17-year-old daughter Willow interjects. “Exactly. Because of their sex,” she responds. “What it feels like to be ostracized or not being treated as...

    Comedy Central is poking fun at star-studded get-out-the-vote pushes in its first ever voter engagement campaign. “All Americans are asking themselves the same questions: How will I know if I should vote if celebrities don’t tell me to?” actors say in the new video from the cable network, released Thursday. “Does Emma Stone think I should vote? What about John Krasinski?” some wonder aloud. “Many normal Americans like us don’t know what we should do until celebrities tell us what to do,” the actors says. Tom Holland, Tom Hardy, Thomas the Tank Engine: Should I vote?” one asks. The video...

    Working in DC it is not unusual to bump into notable people. My favorite story is jaywalking down Pennsylvania Ave. with FBI director William Sessions. We came to a light and I said 'Let's go'.....we nearly got side swiped by an auto. Sessions just chuckled. Also bumped into Tony Snow at the physician's office. Still miss him. Many contacts with notables in airports & on airplanes; i.e.Cal Ripken

    Hollywood Democrats are pouring money into the midterm elections, infusing races with cash in a last-ditch push to flip control of Congress. Some of the country's most famous faces — including Meryl Streep, Steven Spielberg, Alec Baldwin and Paul Rudd — have been splashing their signatures on big-money checks for House and Senate candidates in recent months. Streep and actor Jack Black both donated $10,000 in September to a joint fundraising committee that benefits Sen. Claire McCaskill's reelection bid, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) data collected and analyzed by ITK. The Missouri Democrat is locked in a nail-biter with...

    A majority of American voters say they oppose celebrities giving political endorsements, according to a new American Barometer survey. The poll, conducted by Hill.TV and the HarrisX polling company, found that 60 percent of respondents said they opposed celebrities giving political endorsements because "they polarize public opinion and distract from the important issues of the day." Forty percent of respondents said they support celebrities giving endorsements because "they spread awareness and engage people to vote." The poll also showed a partisan divide on the issue with 80 percent of Republicans polled saying they oppose the endorsements, and 43 percent of...

    Now 64 and enjoying a second career as host of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” Jerry Seinfeld breathes such rarefied air that guests on his show — who have included Dave Chappelle, Tina Fey and then-President Barack Obama — invariably state some version of this sentiment: “Jerry, why are you here, talking to the likes of me, when you could just be home sitting on your pile of money?” And Seinfeld shrugs and laughs as if to say, “Yes, that is true.” So it’s sobering to read the deep and detailed civil complaint filed by producer-director-writer Christian Charles, who has...

    The Democratic National Committee and members of Congress are turning to Hollywood for help with voter turnout and messaging ahead of the midterm elections and 2020 presidential campaign, quietly consulting with a group of actors, writers and producers here. DNC Chairman Tom Perez, several House members and other top elected officials have already met with the group, formed by members of the entertainment industry in the wake of the 2016 election, that participants liken to a TV writers’ room, complete with producers of such programs as “Veep.” The existence of the group and details of the meetings have not been...

    Hollywood liberals from Robert De Niro to Samantha Bee have ramped up their foul-mouthed language to attack President Trump ahead of the midterm elections – but critics think the vulgar rhetoric will backfire. “These outbursts are little more than political masturbation for the left -- it may make them feel good, but it produces nothing,” conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News. De Niro launched a profanity-laced tirade at Trump during Sunday’s live broadcast of the politically charged Tony Awards, earning a standing ovation from the crowd of liberal elites. “I'm gonna say one thing: F--- Trump!" he stated, as...
