Who does Sarah Brightman think she is? October 5, 2008

I was surfing a minute ago, and I came across the following promotional pictures for Sarah Brightman’s new album, “A Winter Symphony”.  She is in such hardcore denial about getting older, for real.  Not only that, but the older she gets, the trashier she gets.  Check out the awesomely fake hair, for example.

Sexy braids there, Sarah. SUPER sexy.

Ok, and guys – she’s 48 years old.  This is the bitch that “The Phantom of the Opera” was WRITTEN for.  In 1986.  I was three.  And check this out:

 

This is one of those pics that make you nervous, because you can't TELL if you're seeing nipple or not.  WHY?

I thought her last album cover was bad.  I mean, she has a rockin’ body, no doubt.  But she also hires people to airbrush the SHIT out of her photos.

I can’t take it for real.  And her music is CRAP.  I’m sorry – I really tried.  And I like musical theatre.  In fact I went and saw Spring Awakening on Broadway today.  It won the Tony in 2007, and I’ve been dying to see it since I moved here.  Hunter Parrish, who plays Silas on “Weeds”, is playing the lead right now – and he did a fabulous job and is actually a really talented singer.  Who knew!  He’s so cute too.  I just can’t quit him.  

(This is him…)

Back to the point.  Sarah Brightman is working really, really hard for such terrible, pointless “pop” music.  

Do like her?

 

Sweet Jesus, Lindsay Lohan wants a baby. October 3, 2008

Lindsay Lohan wants to adopt a baby with her lesbian lover, Samantha Ronson, according the new issue of Marie Claire magazine.  They’ve JUST come out of the closet as a couple, so the next logical step is clearly a celebrity adoption.  After all, why would people care about her now that the gay quesiton has been answered?  Apparently she wants either “a child in need or a newborn from another country. I’m not sure yet.”  Lordy.

How is this a good idea? This bitch has been in rehab like nine times in the past two years (that’s a totally made-up figure, by the way, so don’t quote me.  But for real – it’s a lot.), her family is a complete disaster, and we have pictures of suspicious cuts on her arms – indicating self-harm – from mere months ago.  Not only that, but she’s reportedly off the wagon again hardcore, partying with her girlfriend Samantha Ronson at all her DJ gigs.  NEWSFLASH:  babies are not hobbies!  They are something you commit to loving and caring for for the rest of your life.  FFS.

She's stunning, I'll admit.  But stunningly ready to raise a child?  HELL to the NO.

Lindsay and her man recently enjoyed the waves in sunny Mexico.  Having admitted to their relationship, they were finally able to be as lovey and affectionate as they wanted.

Not that they weren’t before, but whatever.

Lohan & Ronson, before admitting they were together.  No worries gals, NO ONE KNEW.

Tasing has gotten out of control September 29, 2008

Malign me if you will, but I think that the types of men and women who are attracted to jobs in security and law enforcement tend to be under-educated, prone to violence, and power-hungry.  They can’t figure out how to get the power they want via the normal routes, that is – by working hard and mastering something, so they gain authority through artificial means.  In my opinion, this is why there are so many cases of abuse of power within the ranks of law enforcement.  One very clear case of this was the 2006 Sean Bell shooting in New York City.

This is another:

This past weekend, in Brentwood, CA, police officers TASED THE FAMILY members OF A SHOOTING VICTIM! According to KTVU TV, “The victim’s family and friends gathered at the scene, and, according to Misquez, interfered in the assisting officers’ work. The officers then ordered the family members to step aside and when they did not comply, police responded by tasing some of the victim’s family, including his father and sister.”

How sick is that?  How is that appropriate?  WHO DOES THAT?!
