Our favorite three pop culture savvy grandmas are back!
The golden girls who enlightened us with their analysis of the Kim Kardashian sex tape (“She’s just laying there!”) have put that sensual cinematic work aside and turned their attention to the literary brilliance that is Fifty Shades of Grey!
Whether you’ve read it or not, this is a must-see:
After listening to the senior citizen trio discussing the book’s terribleness and debating the merits of vaginal fisting, two things have become abundantly clear:
- The movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of
“Bristol Palin is the daughter of Sarah Palin. She got pregnant by accident just as her mom was added to the 2008 Republican ticket, at which point she pretended to be engaged to Levi Johnston, then attempted to cash in on her 15 minutes.”
Lifetime’s press release for Bristol Palin’s new reality show COULD say that, and it wouldn’t be incorrect, but alas, their bio is a bit different.
Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp (get it?!) premieres on June 19 with two (!) episodes. Here’s Lifetime’s explanation of why you should watch it:

According to Wizard World Inc., the Jersey Shore star has signed a publishing, development and appearance deal to create and publish a comic book based on Sitch.
“MPS Entertainment and I are thrilled about our new relationship with Wizard World. I grew up reading comic books and now I get a chance to star in my own. I can’t wait for everyone to see what we are working on,” said Sitch, a.k.a. Mike Sorrentino.
We know, we thought this was a joke at first too.

Chances Mitt Romney knew who Kim Kardashian was before his speechwriters came up with this line? Not good. Chances you’ll laugh anyway? Very good.
The Republican presidential candidate, locked in a tight race with Ron Paul and the surging Rick Santorum leading into Iowa’s caucuses tomorrow, dropped some wit and pop culture knowledge into his stump speech in Council Bluffs on Sunday.
Romney drew similarities between President Obama’s campaign promises of four years ago and the wedding vows of Kim Kardashian. Take a look:

On his Behind the Music special, which aired this past Sunday, Adam Lambert explained the difficulties in realizing at such a young age that one is gay.
For the most part, though, it’s a topic that barely crosses the singer’s mind at this point in his life. It’s just who he is and who he has been for a long time.
“One of the things I find a little interesting is how much people want to focus on my sexuality,” Lambert told OK! Weekly in a recent interview. “And it’s funny how much people sensationalize it, especially in the media. But that’s entertainment.”
Lambert understands that he’s aMore >

Students at the University of South Carolina can now take a course that will completely focus on Lady Gaga and how she has both become famous and created her own fame. The course is called “Lady Gaga and the Sociology of Fame” and will be taught by sociology professor Mathieu Deflem this coming spring.
Deflem, a professor whose research and academic interests include criminology and policing, is a proud Lady Gaga fan. According to The Daily Gamecock, Deflem first saw Lady Gaga in concert in 2009 and has since seen her perform 28 times. He once met her in an airport, and now, he says, sheMore >
Whether he’s producing hit music, hijacking Taylor Swift speeches or ranting about his banned album cover, Kanye West always tells you how he feels.
Even when he isn’t feeling so great about himself.
While premiering his new film Runaway at a press event last night, the rapper revealed that he had, at one point, contemplated taking his own life.
“There were times that I contemplated suicide,” a reflective West told the crowd, adding that he is now certain, “I will not give up on life again.”
On what drives Kanye to carry on, West said: “There’s so many people that will never get theMore >

The 43-year old New York-born newsman says the so-far untitled project will cover popular topics like celebrities, pop culture and social issues in a journalistic style, with a spin to make them attractive to a female audience.

Lady Gaga may be a fiercly original pop star, but let’s face it, her gig has become pretty predictable, put her in a situation, have her pose half naked in that situation and then move on. That was the case for her recent V Magazine shoot in which she posed as the statue of Liberty…half naked.
In the photo (shown above), she wears a lacy bra and Calvin Klein undies as part of a collaboration she undertook with famed designer Marc Jacobs.
That gown hanging off her half-naked body? That would be a Louis Vuitton evening gown.
In the issue of V magazine editor Stephen Gan says:

[HMG] – If you thought Fox’s hit musical show ‘Glee’ couldn’t get even more ‘fabulous,’ we have good news – Britney Spears is booked for a show.
Glee’s creator, Ryan Murphy was a guest on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show yesterday and he confirmed that the 28-year old singer was “100%” going to be in one episode for a couple of scenes.”
The plot for her show is quite novel – Some of the glee club members visit the dentist – played by John Stamos – and the effects of anesthesia gives them hallucinations – during which they meet Britney.
But Murphy made it clear the show will avoid mentioningMore >
