Why Getting Drunk at Awards Shows in NOT a Good Idea…


 

Another self-indulgent awards show, The Golden Globes graced our television screens this weekend. Everyone (who doesn’t have a sense of humour) has been up in arms about host Ricky Gervais’ risqué jokes during the ceremony, which luckily for Broadwalk Empire actress, Paz de la Huerta, has overshadowed the fact that she got blind drunk and basically made a complete and utter ass of herself. Quite frankly, who wouldn’t start downing the drinks just to ease the pain of sitting through countless awards speeches where people thank other people we don’t care about (agents, producers, hairstylists). Unfortunately however, there were video cameras around to capture the scene where she was refused from an after party at the Chateau Marmont for being too intoxicated, before stumbling, rambling, falling, tearing her dress and exposing her breast in a disastrous journey back to the car. Ay ay ay, uncomfortable viewing to say the least. The purpose of posting this video is certainly not to laugh her expense (okay maybe just a little) but to remind us ladies that getting blind drunk is NOT cute…

Valentine’s Day Banned in Iran


That buzz-kill Iranian government is at it again, this time cracking down on Valentine’s Day, calling for a ban of any gifts or promotions related to the lovers’ holiday, the country’s media reported today.

Singletons everywhere will be wondering why they don’t do the same in Europe.

“Printing and producing any products related to Valentine’s Day, including posters, brochures, advertising cards, boxes with the symbols of hearts, half-hearts, red roses and any activities promoting this day are banned,” Iran’s printing works union announced, under instructions from Iranian hardliners.

The Really Smart Guy who Made Star Wars Says the World WILL End in 2010

You begin to worry when people who are supposed to be really intelligent start running their mouth about those pesky rumors that the world is ending next year according to the Mayan calendar.

Actor  Seth Rogen was left stunned by a recent encounter with his film-making hero George Lucas when the Star Wars director spent 20 minutes telling him the world would end in 2012.

Rogen had joined a meeting with film-making royalty, Lucas and Steven Spielberg and left the surreal experience worried his life could be over next year. He recalls…

George Lucas sits down and seriously proceeds to talk for around 25 minutes about how he thinks the world is gonna end in the year 2012, like, for real. He thinks it. He’s going on about the tectonic plates and all the time Spielberg is, like, rolling his eyes, like, ’My nerdy friend won’t shut up, I’m sorry…’. I first thought he (Lucas) was joking… and then I totally realized he was serious and then I started thinking, ’If you’re George Lucas and you actually think the world is gonna end in a year, there’s no way you haven’t built a spaceship for yourself… So I asked him… ’Can I have a seat on it?’. He claimed he didn’t have a spaceship, but there’s no doubt there’s a Millennium Falcon in a garage somewhere with a pilot just waiting to go… It’s gonna be him and Steven Spielberg and I’ll be blown up.

So thousands of dead animals are inexplicably dropping dead all over the world and George Lucas believes the Mayan calendar’s 2012 predictions for Armageddon. That’s it. One more sign and I’m digging my underground shelter.

Why Do some Women Think it’s Okay to Expose their Breasts in Public Just Because there’s a Baby Attached?

 


Victoria’s Secret model, Miranda Kerr tweeted this picture of her new baby with Orlando Bloom today. Okay, you’ve had a baby, congratulations, but don’t you think you should keep those kinds of images to yourself? Why is it that so many women, famous or not, think breast-sucking feeding is a public-appropriate activity? It’s like they do it on purpose, just to make us feel like there’s something wrong with us because we can’t stop staring at it in our disbelief. Do you think breastfeeding in public is appropriate?
