Justin Bieber changed up his tune over the weekend and sang a little Boyz II Men at a club. The singer was only accompanied by a band as he belted out I’ll Make Love to You, and it was revealed that he cannot sing without the help of a synthesizer. He’s good at what he does, but he is not good at what he doesn’t. Do you think this song helped make the Baby a man?
Scott Porter scored a huge touchdown this weekend when his wife gave birth to their son. McCoy Lee Porter was born on Saturday with the following stats 8 lbs, 5 oz., 20.5 inches and 32cm Cranium; and by Sunday the blue-eyed cutie made all of our harts, I mean hearts, go pop. Just when you think that the Friday Night Lights star couldn’t get any hotter, he shares a photo of himself holding his precious game changer. So much so it’s making me miss Hart of Dixie even more.
Rob Lowe is playing a priest in his next project and I am having naughty thoughts about him. How many Hail Marys do I have to say for having lustful thoughts about The Grinder after seeing him in a collar? More than I usually, but less than when I saw his sex tape! Talk about improper thoughts, that has been my favorite celebrity sex video to date, so imagine what I was thinking after I watched it!
Dr Sarah Kingston, of Lancaster University, spoke with several male and female escorts and found that the need for them has tripled since 2010 in the UK. She found that women all of ages and backgrounds are using the service. Some are professionals who are just too busy for a relationship and others wants to spice up the ones that they are on. Many of the women who are hiring the men are doing so by using their phones and the internet to find them.
To show how much need the need has grown, in 2010 there were 5,246 male escort profiles and 11,056 female escort profiles and now there are 15,732 male profiles and 28,614 female.
Since this study was done on the other side of the pond, I wonder if Showtime’s show Gigolos played a role in the growing desire for this business. The docudramedy debuted on the pay cable network back in 2011, which is about the time the world’s oldest profession saw a surge in the numbers. If it didn’t play a part in the rise, then I think Showtime needs to send out Vegas boys to London and let them work their magic.
If you are a woman who pays for sex, then Dr Kingston wants to talk to you.
Every now and again an employer has to review his employees, and Conan O’Brien thought it was about time he reviewed the people who answer to him. Although, it doesn’t seem that a lot of them really answer to him, and can you blame them? The one answer they all agreed upon, is which co-worker they think should be fired. Who do you think they all said? Jordan Schlansky, of course. I never would have agreed with them until I started following him on Twitter. It actually hurts to read his Tweets. So if reading 180 characters of his thoughts is painful, imagine how hard it must be to work with him?
But this isn’t about Schlansky, it’s about Conan. And I want his dummy! That was my biggest takeaway from this bit. That and he better give his show’s publicist a glowing review or we will have a problem.
Finally, Conan O’Brien is now the senior member late night host. Here’s to hoping he surpasses Letterman’s 33 year record.
Anne Meara passed away yesterday at the age of 85 according to the AP. The actress/comedian spent 61 years married to her comedy partner Jerry Stiller and even longer making us laugh. The two of them brought their act to the talk shows of the ’60s and ’70s. They worked together and they worked apart. Her TV resume included Archie Bunker’s Place, Rhoda, Alf, All My Children and Sex and the City, and her films include Fame, Reality Bites and Night at the Museum. The projects she was most proud of were her children Amy and Ben Stiller.
Today, let her make you laugh as you watch one of her many many many brilliant roles.
Sting was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon brought out the Ragtime Girls to sing one of his former band’s biggest songs, Roxanne. Whoever thought the classic song would work in that tempo, but it does.
BTW is just me or does Sting’s stupid bushy beard make him look more bald than he already is?
When The Human Centipede came out in 2006, people couldn’t get over the movie by Dutch filmmaker Tom Six. The world was shocked about the concept. Even though they are baffled by it, they were also intrigued. Begrudgingly they watched it to find out what all the chatter was about. The more and more people who went to see it, the more popular it became. Since its initial release, it has had two sequels, a cult following and many parodies including South Park, Conan O’Brien, a p0rn version called The Human Sextipede and Key and Peele.
If you are like me, then you want to know more about how this cult franchise from the artist himself. On Tuesday, I had the chance to talk to its creator, Tom Six and his sister, Ilona Six, who is his co-partner in Six Entertainment Company.
Let’s go back to beginning, what type of childhood did they have to come up with such a twisted movie? Ilona let her older brother answer that one. He said, “We were the victims of a happy childhood. We were raised very sweet and everything. We had nice cats. It was all fun. That made us mad, I think.” Then she chimed in, “You made me mad.” He explained how, “I made her mad. I prepared her for the business. I showed her horror films and all kinds of films like that when she was very underage. She still has a trauma from it.”
Now that we know how they started out, how did he come up with the idea for this movie? He shared the origin with me, “When I was watching television a story about a child molester came on. He was very nasty individual and he was given a very low punishment. I was very angry about it and I said as a joke to people they should stitch his mouth to the anus of a fat truck driver. That would be the proper punishment, don’t you think?” Then he continued, “That idea kept lingering in my head and I thought that would be a great idea for a horror film. People haven’t seen that before. Then from the idea to the end of making the film was quite a journey. It was pretty intense.”
How has this insane ride been for them, he said, “We are living the dream. We created something. You hope it spreads like a virus and it did. It’s like a very very aggressive virus. They are talking about it in Japan, Australia and that gave us the possibility to make more films and be taken seriously, very seriously. I had the opportunity to work with amazing great actors.”
They will have the chance to work with many more great actors in the future. He shared with me, “Ilona and I are working on different films now and we are taking it slow. We are writing and doing things.” Then he added, “We keep making films that are original and exploring the dark side of humanity. People were born evil and I like to explore that. Always with pitch black, dark comedy elements to it for the people that see it.”
Before people see those others films, The Human Centipede is completing its run in theaters, OnDemand and online streaming sites as you read this with The Human Centipede 3: The Final Sequence. How does he feel that about reaching the end of the centipede? He said, “It’s kind of sad, but we have to continue to create more art. These 3 movies, they make a movie centipede. They can be connected and form one four and half hour movie, that is the fun part of it. So we move on.”
They might move on for this franchise, but we never will. The Human Centipedes have left a mark in movie history that can never be erased.
On Monday, I attended the CBS Studios Summer Press Day, and the EP of Zoo said they want us to be afraid of our Schnauzers. Well, I am already afraid of my cat, and after watching this video I am even more afraid of her. Maybe the revolt of the animals has already started?
Seriously though, how meovelous is this video? I mean does anyone blame the cat for doing what they did? I do the same thing when I babysit, I just don’t videotape it because the evidence can be used against me. Joking, their cabinets are too full for me to do that.
