The celebrity epidemic that started with Charlie Sheen has been making the rounds, with more pop culture figures falling prey to bizarre behaviour every day.
Hollywood didn’t just make a few missteps recently, it drank some boiled hairspray and ran headfirst into a wall!
To be clear,by “Hollywood”, I mean celebrities in general. Whether they’re rappers, reality tv stars or actors, celebrities share a common trait; the ability to act without reason or accountability.
NO GLEE IN WATCHING GLEE?
My daughter is a huge Gleek and I go along for the ride whenever I can, but last week’s installment, “Sexy”, should have been titled “Seriously?”
The episode was obviously written by a roomful of one-handed horny frat boys! How else do you explain Gwynwth Paltrow holding up a cucumber and a condom to supposedly educate kids about safe sex in one scene and then dancing seductively with the same kids?
Another highlight was Gwyneth’s sex-ed teacher character’s advice to two cheerleaders, one of whom was afraid to let her fellow students know she’s in love with the other, “Sing a song in front of the other kids that conveys your feelings!”
The ep has taken a few hits from parental advocacy groups and I have a feeling Paltrow’s next appearance will be steered in a different, less sticky direction.
I WOULDN’T GIVE YOU A QUARTER FOR 50 CENT!
It’s one thing for Kanye West to ruin award shows and scare White America, now 50Cent has decided he hates the Japanese? Here’s what he tweeted about the tsunami’s possible impact on the West Coast.
“Wave will hit 8am them crazy white boys gonna try to go surfing.”
And: “Look this is very serious people I had to evacuate all my hoess from LA, Hawaii and Japan. I had to do it. Lol”
Even after it was explained to him his comments sounded like they were made by someone on crack, he replied:
“Nah this is nuts but what can anyone do about it. Let’s pray for anyone who has lost someone”
And: “Some of my tweets are ignorant I do it for shock value. Hate it or love it. I’m cool either way 50cent.”
IGNORANCE HAS NO COLOR
Finally, let me waste a few more lines of post space by writing about the latest episode of that pop culture cancer that is 19 Kids and Counting. It seems the Duggars’ oldest boy, Josh has failed to listen to the pleas of a Duggar-weary world and impregnated his wife Anna yet again. This left the young couple wondering how to share the news with the rest of the family. His mom’s solution was as understated as the Duggars themselves – skywrting!
I’ve watched this program with my wife who is a fan of the show, not the family, but even she was disturbed by how “in-your-face” the Duggars are. On a personal note, I’m disgusted by Michelle Duggars’ apparent campaign to kill herself through childbirth.
Her last pregnancy nearly killed her and her daughter, when will they yield to the obvious message the God they supposedly love is sending them? The Duggars claim to be simple folk who want to instill good values in their small country of a family but they earn money hand over fist by pimping out their kids to a culture they claim is sinful and dangerous.
