Brian Grazer, one of the most accomplished and respected producers in Hollywood, has agreed to replace Brett Ratner as the producer for this years Oscar telecast. There’s still no host to replace the departed Eddie Murphy, but one of the top choices seems to be Neil Patrick Harris. Who will definitely rehearse if nothing else wink wink.
The Penn State board of trustees held an emergency meeting Wednesday night at 10:00pm and unanimously voted to fire football coach Joe Paterno and university president Graham Spanier due to their involvement with the Jerry Sandusky sex scandal. Which is way grosser than that made it sound.
Surprisingly, Mike McQueary, the wide receivers coach who actually witnessed the rape and reported it to Paterno, has not been fired.
Board vice chairman John Surma said…
“Joe Paterno is no longer the football coach, effective immediately. It was necessary for the long-term views of the university which is much larger than athletic programs. … Our job was to make this determination. … I think in the long-term, we’ve done the right thing.”
As a huge college football fan, specifically an LSU fan, I can promise you I’d want my coach fired and arrested if he did what Joe Paterno did. And by that I mean if he were a shitty recruiter and lost to Alabama two years in a row. I seriously hate those people.
This video of Mike Parsons being towed into a 60 foot wave will always be awesome, but a close second is this one of Garrett McNamara off the coast of Nazaré, Portugal, breaking a world record by riding a wave estimated to be 90 feet high. Though I’m not really sure how they measure how high the waves are. If I were on the board they could judge it by how loud my terrified screaming became.
Avril Lavigne got into a fight early Monday morning at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood (she tweeted, “I got attacked by 5 people last night out of nowhere. Not cool. My face is fucked”), and I didn’t really care because it’s just Avril and she’s always running her mouth in bars so screw her, but now Yahoo has this picture and Holy Shit!
I can’t seem to find a source for the picture but if that’s real she totally got her ass kicked. She also tweeted, “violence is never the answer”, but it is when the question is, “what if I don’t shut up, what are you gonna do?”
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is just one of the many celebrities who love Christian Louboutin shoes. The bad news is that celebrities are about the only people who can afford them, since they sell for about $700 a pair. The good news is that Rosie has some practical advice for the rest of us.
“If you can save up for a pair put away a dollar a week. It’s worth it girls. It is really worth it!”
It better be, because at a dollar a week it would be 14 years before you could buy a pair. You ever wonder why things like pop-tarts have directions on the box? It’s because of girls like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Sofia Vergara filmed some scenes for ‘Modern Family’ yesterday in West Hollywood, and her dress showed off her tits so here are the pictures. Sarah Hyland was there too but I’m shunning her because she doesn’t have big tits like Sofia does. Hey, you wan’t to be ugly, fine, that’s how you’ll be treated.
Brett Ratner is the one who convinced Eddie Murphy to host the Academy Awards on February 26th, so now that Ratner has been fired for saying “fag”, Murphy is stepping down too. Maybe because he really really likes saying “fag”.
The first single from Madonnas next album leaked yesterday, and about 30 seconds after that Nicola Roberts fans were online pointing out that it sounds suspiciously like Roberts’ song, ‘Beat of My Drum’ (listen to that here).
Both songs feature cheerleader-style choruses with Madge’s track, which is produced by William Orbit, featuring the lyrics: ‘L-U-V Madona’.
While on Roberts’ song, which peaked at 27 when it was released earlier this year, the chorus goes: ‘L.O.V.E/ Dance to the beat of my drum/ Dance to the beat of my drum.’
I didn’t really listen to either one of these songs but Madonna is a mean old selfish bitch so if someone says she stole a song I totally believe them. Hell, they could tell me she was raising those African kids to harvest their organs later and I would believe them. In fact I bet if someone checked their blood type they would match Madonnas. What a coincidence.
