I used to watch that couple on Port Charles! I always thought Alison was too good for Jack, who was never as interesting as his big brother.

I feel like from a mature, adult perspective, I should feel bad for the fact that dude got put on blast to the whole world, but then I considered:

1) He was basically harassing the woman sitting next to him, since she was clear about not being interested.
2) He continued to flat out lie to her after she'd called him out on his wedding ring AND looked him up online.

So...I say he deserved it for the losing combo of heinous and stupid.

Heh, that was my first thought too, though the actual story is hilarious enough.

I didn't feel any outrage on her behalf (she seemed to be handling the unwanted attention just fine) until I found out he opened the windows on a red eye flight. Then I was like FRY THE BASTARD TELL THE WORLD!!!!!

Ha! I was like, "Hey, it's Jack from Port Charles! Isn't he married to Alison in real life?" Poor girl. He kind of deserves it for being so stupid, but now I feel bad for his wife.

I'm enjoying the fact that nobody really cares that Madonna flashed the crowd at a recent concert.

It's not because she's old, per se. It's because she's supposed to be sooooo super smart and inventive, and that's the best she can come up with? And nobody cares...golly.

I wonder if these people were all up in arms over Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" a few years back? That boob was younger and perkier.

I guess what I'm getting at is that the news isn't nearly as "all over it" as it used to be.

When the Janet Jackson thing happened, I didn't stop hearing about it, from all news sources, all over the place.

Earlier in the week, I heard a blurb on a morning news show saying Madonna did something "shocking" (caught the tail end, so I didn't catch what they were talking about). So I listened for a few minutes to see if they'd actually tell me what it was. But it was treated as more a throwaway news item. None of the news sites I followed were actively interested in the story, so I was curious, but pleased that I actually had to seek out what happened as opposed to hearing about it ad nauseum.

I've always thought of Madonna as a desperate attention hound, though she used to be at least minimally more thoughtful about it. This...feels cheap, even for her. At her age, it's not about what shape she's in, it's about how she could simply do better.

And frankly, I found her performance at the Super Bowl to be unbelievably sad, in the same way Tom Cruise is sad: the whole "I'm still young! No, really!" thing. And any time a celebrity gets blowback for that kind of hubris (or even better, gets ignored), it's kinda fun to watch.

Janet's nipple had the gall to make an appearance on the Superbowl which is the biggest TV event of the year. Children were watching and could have been traumatized by it. That's why it got so much attention.

Tom Cruise is almost fifty but he looks amazing in Rock of Ages. And not in a good for 50 kind of way but in a "holy f*ck Tom Cruise has got rock star sex on a stick down pat!"

I'm glad to hear that Katy Perry's movie was a box-office disappointment.

I've got nothing against Katy Perry, but that movie looks way too bright and candy-colored for a normal human. I would probably puke in my stomach if I had to watch it on the big screen.

I know I'm not the intended audience, but I just CANNOT GET EXCITED about Katy Perry. I saw the preview for her movie when I saw Brave, and I wasn't like "Ew, I hate that bitch, how did she get a movie?!!?!" or anything (I don't hate her, at all), but I literally was just like "...What? Why?" It's like a giant 3-D documentary came out about the making of The Bachelor or something. It's a thing in culture, it's famous, it's reasonably popular, but it doesn't seem to me like something zeitgeisty or hot-buttony enough to warrant that kind of to-do.

I know that's not how these decisions are made (if you have an opportunity to make a movie about your pop star, you're not going to like, NOT make it because you're not sure if she's sufficiently culturally important at this moment), but basically, I'm not surprised the movie isn't doing that well.

I love how she thinks people will still be talking about her two years from now. That's so cute!

The best part of that link is the link on the side about the Oogieloves movie taking the crown as worst wide-opener ever.

Sadly, as we've been talking about her for almost five years (or more), I don't think she's wrong about that. But she still won't qualify as a performer/entertainer.

Considering I'm still traumatized by the Oogielove trailer which I saw before Brave, I'm not surprised parents decided there was a limit to what they'd endure for their children.

The Oogielove trailer played before....something I watched on the internet, I can't even remember now. I didn't even have the sound on at the time. Just...what the hell is that. What the hell?

An ad for it showed up when I was watching Colbert. I looked it up because I assumed it had to be some parody movie, because who advertises a kids' flick at that hour on Comedy Central?
