Madonna: Brother Residing Under a Michigan Bridge

Madonna attends the Macy's official Material Girl clothing line launch in NYC

As we pondered what to post this morning, while sipping on our morning espresso, we came on this tidbit by The Michigan Messenger (via DListed.)  The article, although set to tell the story of the down and trodden flocking to Traverse City, redirects and finds a celebrity angle, ending with a focuses on our queen of all self-promotion and UES resident – yeah, that’s right – Madonna, and her homeless older brother Anthony Ciccone. 

The older Ciccone, 55, speaks of how his family “turned their back on [him], basically, when [he] was having a hard time.”

Hmmmm.  Pretty hard statement, we’d say.

“You think I haven’t answered this kind of question a bazillion times — why my sister is a multibazillionarie, and I’m homeless on the street?”  Ciccone offers as a follow-up. 

We were thinking that as we read the sentence, we admit.

Interestingly enough, he offers very little in the way of providing the reporter an answer this time around.  Or perhaps she purposely omitted it…

“Ciccone said he’s been among the city’s homeless for a year and a half since losing a job at his father’s vineyard and winery in Suttons Bay. He said that it annoys him that some people are amused that a person from such a high-profile family would end up sleeping, as he does, under the Union St. bridge,” writes Eartha Jane Melzer.

These are a fairly well-rounded assessment of the facts – clearly supported by the fact that he is presently the focus of a homelessness article – but little in the form of the details contributing to the cause.

 So we are left to further digest DListed’s assesment of the circumstances. 

“We don’t know what’s really going on here,” Michael writes.  Pointing out that “Anthony was fired by his own dad. What kind of crazy fucked up do you have to be to get fired by the man who carried you in his nutsack once?”

This seems like a proper follow up question, we thinks…  (What?  Ain’t nothing we can add to that assesment.  We are still having our coffee, dammit!  We ain’t thinking of attempting wit this early.)  Although we are left wondering why the holes in the story were left unplugged.

Liz Taylor: No Whoopla

Leave it to Elizabeth Taylor to take it old school and put a little dignity in the mix.

The iconic legend went and twittered about her decision to forgo the “public whoopla” at the Staples Center, slated for later today, in lieu of private grieving.

I personally am amazed – not surprised, mind you – at how MJ’s death has turned into a blatant business venture. It has all the makings of a celebrity red carpet. Y’all know those fuckers will be filming every step of the so called memorial and will add it to the pending DVD that will include his rehearsal footage.

This is what my grandma would have term as folks with no respect or shame!

Michael Bay: Fox F’ed Up

Michael Bay, director extraordinaire of the Transformer films, has gone on record in response to a previously reported Megan Fox statement where she addresses her role in the mega-blockbuster flicks.

If you don’t immediately recall, Fox said, “I can’t shit on this movie because it did give me a career and open all these doors for me. But I don’t want to blow smoke up people’s ass. People are well aware that this is not a movie about acting.”

Sounds a bit ungrateful for the one time unknown girl, if you ask me. I would not only be blowing smoke up Bay’s ass but I would be deep throating and swallowing his jizz while kneeling on broken glass and holding two bibles on raised arms for being bestowed the opportunity of such a role. But who am I to judge…In a Wall Street Journal interview (via DListed,) Bay states: “Well, that’s Megan Fox for you! She says some very ridiculous things because she’s 23 years old and she still has a lot of growing to do. You roll your eyes when you see statements like that and think, ‘Okay Megan, you can do whatever you want. I got it. Nick Cage wasn’t a big actor when I cast him, nor was Ben Affleck. before I put him in Armageddon. Shia LaBeouf wasn’t a big movie star before he did Transformers — and then he exploded. Not to mention Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, from Bad Boys. Nobody in the world knew about Megan Fox until I found her and put her in Transformers. I like to think that I’ve had some luck in building actors’ careers with my films.”

Sounds like he has made note of her wayward tongue action…

Eminem: Rimming Guru

I don’t really feel Sacha Baron Cohen’s humor – generally. But this MTV Movie Awards clip is funny!

Granted, I think its because Eminem is such an ass and a general homophobe that watching him have some guy thrust his ass in his face is well deserving! (Thanks Dlisted for the posting!)

You just have to know that E is one big drama queen and the MTV folk planned this to happen with him purposely – hey, go with what garners the most outrageousness I always say…

Downey Jr. is Sherlock Holmes

Robert Downey Jr. is a God! And I don’t mean just cuz he is the talent of all talents either, I mean he is the embodiment of all things divine.

The “Iron Man” works a screen with ease. Consistently delivering performances that are captivating, riveting and simply perfect!

There is no role he cannot deliver on! Who else can we say this about?
Robbie next tackles portraying the historic character of “Sherlock Holmes,” here pictured while on the set of this very film earlier this year, opposite dashing Brit – Jude Law. The film is slated for a Christmas time release but there is already a trailer! (Thnx DListed!)

When I said I loved you Robbie, I meant I LOVE ME SOME OF YOU! And I will too gladly reach under that or any other pillow to get your key! Call me…

Shia LaBeouf: Cums Clean

Oh, the things they say! Sometimes celebs speak candidly and they come out with the most honest and thought provoking statements.

Other times they need to be screened.

Ordinarily I celebrate candidness, but this time I have to agree with Mikey over at DListed.

In an excerpted interview with Playboy, hotness (and often hotheaded) Shia LaBeouf is quoted by Star Mag as stating that his moms is the one he would most likely want to mount!

“Probably the sexiest woman I know is my mother. She’s an ethereal angel. Nobody looks like that woman. If I could meet my mother and marry her, I would. I would be with my mother now, if she weren’t my mother, as sick as that sounds.”

Well, at least he realizes that the articulation isn’t exactly kosher. And who can blame him? Growing up I had a relative or two I wanted to be mounted by… but you aren’t suppose to voice these!

It’s ok, Shia… A few ejaculations and some deep penetrations (you pick the position) and these thoughts will be wiped from your immortal tainted soul. Shia also goes on to divulge his less than ordinary upbringing by hippie parents and 420.

Puss-n-No-Boots

Dlisted posted some rant about “Cashmere Mafia’s” cancellation and the subsequent demise of “Lipstick Jungle” but all I could really concentrate on was this video and the piece of fur ball.

This is why folks get little pussy’s! The cutest thing and tons of entertainment. Look closely – I swear it looks like Puss-in-Boots from Schrek. I half expected Antonio Banderas’ voice to squeal out.
