Mug Shot or Yearbook Photo?

Texas Governor Rick Perry – a possible presidential candidate in 2016 – was indicted by a grand jury in the Lone Star State last week on charges of abuse of power and coercion.

He showed up yesterday for his mug shot – looking like he was posing for a yearbook picture. He sure doesn’t look a bit worried, does he?

The charges allege that the governor vetoed funding of a county office that investigate public corruption because the woman who runs the office refused to resign after her DUI conviction.

You can check out the story in the video clip below.

Ice Bucket Challenge #43

The 43rd president of the United States – some know him as George W. Bush, others simply as W – took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. First, he tried to write a check, as getting a bucket of ice water dumped on one’s head isn’t very “presidential.”

Thank goodness his wife was on hand. Great job, former First Lady! And lucky for her the Secret Service was taking a coffee break.

To W’s credit, he challenged his predecessor – Bill Clinton, aka #42 – to take the challenge. W noted that August 19 was Bill’s birthday, and “my gift to Bill is a bucket of cold water.”

Well played indeed.

Fifty Shades Guy Deserves Oscar?

Fifty Shades of Grey hasn’t even been released yet – it doesn’t come out until Valentine’s Day, 2015 – but already, the woman who wrote the screenplay says that Jamie Dornan, the actor playing Christian Grey, Is going to get an Oscar.

She’s talking about an Academy Award, not a weiner.

That’s according to an US Weekly article yesterday, quoting an interview Kelly Marcel gave a week or so ago to Reza Aslan in his Writer’s Room series.

Here’s her best quote: "Apparently Jamie is great at being soft and hard at the same time. Which is hard to do for an actor!"

I’m thinking she knew exactly what she was saying. How about you?

Meanwhile, check out the film’s trailer again, and see if you smell Oscar…

JWoww Shaping Up?

It’s only been a month-and-a-half or so since Jersey Shore’s JWoww pushed daughter Meilani into the world.

And already, she’s back on the red carpet, this time for the premiere of her new horror comedy, Jersey Shore Massacre. Check out the interview she gave to US Weekly – printed uncensored, it would need an X rating.

She’s not happy with the way, um, “stuff” is jiggling in her post-partum body. And she says some of Meilani’s delivery will be seen on the upcoming season of Snooki & JWoww, and while no one needs to see her, um, “lady parts,” we just might. Oh yeah, she, um, let’s say “greatly” hated being pregnant.

Her body might be shaping up. Maybe she should be working on her pie hole. Um, sorry, “mouth.”

Missouri Mall Goes Viral

The marketing folks at the East Hills Mall in Saint Joseph, Missouri might have created what Reddit.com called the “Terrible Mall Commercial” and made it terrible on purpose.

The idea: have folks from the various shops selling back-to-school items sing about their wares to a bit of a hip-hop beat. With an old-style microphone in front of them.

“Singing” is a generous term. Some of the presentations are hideous. But, they’re so bad, they’re good.

And because of that, the video has gone viral. It was posted on August 17 – last Sunday – and as of last night, it had over 1.5 million hits on YouTube.

Check it out for yourself. Add to the hit count, and see what you think…

Marketing genius, or a lightning strike?

Oh, and by the way, “boots and pants and boots and pants!”

Beyonce Gets Divorce Advice from Gwyneth

And there’s a headline I never thought anyone would write, ever.

Not the Beyonce-getting-divorced part. That rumor’s been buzzing around for weeks, months even.

The other part: getting divorce advice from Gwyneth Paltrow.

You remember how she and Chris Martin consciously uncoupled a few months ago. And now, she’s become a consultant to celebrity splitters.

Word is that the BeyZee break up will happen in the fall, at the end of their On The Run tour dates. But according to sources, Queen Bey wants it to be as amicable as GwynChris’s.

Sorry. All this talk of uncoupling got me in the mood to couple Gwyneth and Chris just one more time…

Who is this?

This is Meghan Trainor, who is 'Bringing Booty Back', because she's 'All About That Bass (No Treble, No Treble').... She had to fight for 'All About That Bass' not to change it's tone/tempo:
When she first pitched the song, Trainor told Billboard that songwriters complained that "All About That Bass" didn't have a "big chorus." "We were like, "No, that's the catchiest part of the song! That's our chorus and we don't want to change it,'" she recalled. "So we kept it, and that's everyone's favorite part." Meghan has written songs since she was 11 and by 13 she was producing them on a computer her parents bought her. Meghan has written several songs for different artists.. Rascal Flatts included. When this song came up, other artists were being entertained to sing it, but Meghan stood up for it and herself as a songwriter/singer!

I'm glad this now 20 year-old from Massachusetts stuck w/ it. I think the song is perfect the way it is, with a Great message, minus a bit of hating on 'Skinny Biaaatches!! But it's not hating on the skinny part, but more on the B- tudes!! Meghan's album will be coming out this fall. She's snuck in later in the summer, but she's in the running for 'All About That Bass' to be Summer Song of 2014. What do you think ?

"Shake It Off" Offends Rapper

It’s hard to imagine, but Taylor Swift’s new video, “Shake It Off,” has been officially deemed offensive.

Yes, the celebration by dance that says everyone can survive the naysayers is getting some naysay of its own by a giant of the music industry.

That’s right, folks, none other than rapper Earl Sweatshirt. Here’s what he had to say:
  He hasn’t watched it, and yet, he’s more than happy to weigh in on its offensive.

The man’s name is Earl Sweatshirt, folks.

You couldn’t make the name sound smart if you put Professor in front of it.

Pay to Play?

According to some reports, the National Football league has made its top three choices for halftime entertainment at the 2015 Super Bowl: Katy Perry, Rihanna and Coldplay.

And the league has reached out to each of them to ask if they’d be willing to pay for the privilege.

Typically, Super Bowl halftime performers don’t get paid, but the NFL picks up travel, accommodations and production charges.

This year, It appears that the NFL has run out of money – so they want the halftime entertainers to pony up some dinero.

Let’s see how far down the A-list they have to go before they find someone willing to pay.

Meanwhile, it’s making more and more sense to have someone like Weird Al Yankovic do the halftime entertainment. If the league’s going to be a joke, then why not the Super Bowl’s halftime show?
