Reformed one-time escort now aging British actor Rupert Everett, 53, is reportedly receiving death threats as a result of recent statements made against gay parenting during an interview with The Sunday Times. And if you are now wondering what could be so extreme a statement as to warrant a death threat… Well, here you go… The one-time A-lister stated that he can’t think of “anything worse than being brought up by two gay dads,” adding that gay men don’t “make good parents.”
That’s a way harsh judgement by the onetime hustler turned model, turned actor, turned writer – that order may not be right… No matter, it’s the statements that are the focus here.
“I’ve now had all this hate mail, and there have been death threats too,” Britain’s Daily Telegraph quotes Madonna’s one-time sidekick as stating during a luncheon promoting his latest memoir entry “Vanished Years.”
We wonder if the title has anything to do or relate to his acting career…? We mean that metaphorically!
Needless to say that we will not be purchasing the new release. We have loved his acting prowess and can only imagine that he was worth every British sterling for a shag… But we will opt for Rowling’s latest entry instead.
We happened on spotting Everett last we visited Mykonos and marveled at how unhappy he seemed while on a picturesque island off the coast of Greece. We thought it not possible. Spotting him on the streets of NYC, which we have also experienced, is one thing, but Greece? C’est pas possible!
But at this juncture and with his never-ending diarrhea of distasteful comments we have concluded that it matters not where Everett finds himself – his unhappiness comes within. That’s a deeply rooted festering toxin right there.
Sadly, We think Everett will not know the smiles & laughter a child can bring to folks. We personally would cut his nut-sack off if it meant having one of our own. Nor will he know beauty again as, with pushing 60, his vamp days are behind him.
And to think this all stemmed from some reference about his Mumsy still wanting him to marry. Wow!
So his end will be likely one of a working title along the lines of A Bitter Queen Who Once Was…
We just can’t let it go. We’ve tried. Russian official Dmity Rogozin is believed to have gone and attacked the divine Madonna on his Twitter account dropping the “W” letter for whore after Madge spoke out against a jailed punk band in the USSR awaiting a verdict, reports the NY Daily News. Ain’t that some shit?
We’ve never thought Russians were of the etiquette subscribing or moral highbrow bunch – cold fuckers they are – but this one does take a foul cake. Say nothing of a politician insinuating anyone is a whore – and a Russian one at that = is at the very least a laughable occurrence.
Sadly it appears his culture condones a misogynist voice. Cuz addressing a woman – any woman apparently, as the dumbass doesn’t go as far as naming her officially – with such demeaning references is apparently acceptable.
This, above all, speaks volume for his people and the country’s overall political arena.
Why don’t you pick on your own kind chubby…?
We thought to share his twitter mugshot with y’all so that you could have visual of this top drawer individual.
Madonna has a new single y’all. And its somehow hit the web-sphere. The single, titled “Give Me All Your Love”, is presently being circulated online worldwide. Did you expect anything less? Silly you!
Unfortunately, it isn’t something to yell from the roof tops. And there is no remix, as yet.
Critics have already referred to it as a throwback to her 80′s sound.
We disagree entirely.
It’s an attempt at regression is all. Because her debut album, all them years back, was (and still is) revolutionary.
This track is far from that. But we are sure a DJ somewhere will bootleg it right quick and the track will command the dance floor. No doubt!
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.
The Met Gala rolled around – once again – last night. The famed Costume Institutes annual fete celebrating the world of fashion, lead by non-other than Vogue editrix Anna Wintour at the helm. This years event celebrated Alexander McQueen’s vision, aptly titled “Savage Beauty.” And there was a lot of both savagery and tons of beauty! Lea Michele, Evan Rachel Wood, Gwyneth Paltrow, preggers Kate Hudson, Twilight’s Kristen Stewart, her madgesty Madonna, Fergie, Salma Hayek, Jennifer Hudson, Saoirse Ronan, Penelope Cruz in Oscar de la Renta, a Pippy Long Stocking-esque Rihanna, the ever dramatic Renee Zelwegger and a booed Beyonce.
Drama always ensues during the two plus hours of step-and-repeat. It just does! All starts out calmly enough, but you blink and WHAM. Drama unfolds. No biggy really given the magnitude of the night.
This years notable mentions…
Fergie’s dashing testosterone fueled husband Josh Duhamel getting into a tete-a-tete with a certain West Coast pap and calling him a “pussy.” Unjustly so – we might add! (UPDATE: Video Posted Below – courtesy of DMBJOnline.com)
Beyonce being booed the entire time she made her way up the stairs and into the venue for not skipping more than 4/5 of the arrivals press line.
A portion of the paps line refusing to photograph Solange Knowles in response to her sisters snub.
A certain Missoni shedding bits of her dress the entire way up the stairs.
And Renee performing a very deeply method posing story – which we personally L-O-V-E-D!
Hold right there, this here is world news! Madonna is set to open a chain of Hard Candy Fitness gyms across the globe, starting with Mexico City this November, reports the Australian Herald Sun.
“Hard Candy Fitness will be a reflection of Madonna’s point of view and will reflect her input on every detail including music, space, light and other design cues. Madonna’s touch will be everywhere,” said New Evolution Ventures chairman Mark Mastrov.
In a released statement, prospective members are informed they can “expect plush locker rooms, a healthy juice bar and cafe, plus sauna and steam rooms.”
And in true Madonna style plans are already set underway for a global presence with an additonal 10 locations including Russia, Brazil, Argentina and throughout Europe and Asia, the Herald goes on to state.
“Our goal is to create an environment inspired by Madonna’s vision and high standards of what the ideal gym would be,” Mastrov says.
We can honestly say that our interest is peaked in seeing what Madge envisions for a plush locker room meat rack – especially given her colorful journeys and career long sexual overtones.
We only wonder if she will ring up Junior Vasquez for some tunes.. No matter, sign our ass up!
No one creates a sensation better than the original Material Girl herself – the one & only Madonna! She is (and has been) called many things, but in the end she is always the savvy business woman who can mesmerize the public with little more than a grin. A true premiere multi-tasker who is larger than life.
At 50+ she can rock out like no other! Don’t pretend y’all don’t know that before there was GaGa there was Madge. You better recognize.
With her daughter Lourdes fast on the growing up road – looking like the mirror image of her mother, albeit with darker hair - it only makes sense that the two would partner up and give us a one-two punch.
And behold – Material Girl, the clothing line is upon us, with a right proper muse in the form of beauty Taylor Momsen.
Girl had Macy’s close down a city block for nothing more than a step-and-repeat – who the hell else can work that out? And just so you know, she is wearing an Alex McQueen dress!
I’ve always marveled at celebrity by association. What is that about? Seems like anything within close proximity of fame gets some halfwits prose going at a magazine et voila! New age celebrity-dom is catapulted onto the masses.
Well here is Madonna’s recent piece du jour Jesus Luz filling in some briefs for something or other. I’m sure he has done everything in his power – including schrimping – to thank his stars for Madge taking a liking to him. But the briefs coulda been briefer in my opinion…
And I reckon in some small way I am thanking her as well. The boy is easy to look at – I luv his happy trail – even if I am sure I wouldn’t want to hear it speak.
When George Clooney picks up the phone and asks his colleagues for help, it seems folks come a running from every walk of entertainment. From Madonna to Daniel Craig, Jennifer Hudsonn and Taylor Lautner to Mel Gibson and beyond… That’s clout! And it’s amazing to see it happen.
There is little to be said about last night’s “Hope for Haiti Now: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief“, that hasn’t already been stated, so I won’t even try to come up with some double entendre, glib comment or slight innuendo. Just don’t go thinking it will be common practice henceforth.
It’s just a good cause asking for desperately needed aid for a country that, on a good day, can use help. Throw in this massive quake, which has left the nation devastated, and they not only need global aid but everything else the world can spare.
I of all folks know it is hard to give when you barely have enough yourself – but as Stevie Wonder attested while manning the phones on the program, “a whole lot of littles make a whole lot of lots.” Give whatever you can spare.
Rob Marshall’s big screen adaptation of “Nine” promised to be a big end of the season bang. What with the entire cast expected including Fergie’s significant other – Josh Duhamel, it couldn’t possibly be anything other than intense. As such, photographers commenced their line-up list at midnight for a six o’clock arrivals event.
Over the top? Possibly.
The event did not disappoint, Fergie, Josh Duhamel (who ran off so as to not steal his squeezes thunder,) Marion Cotillard with beau (who also ran off,) Kate Hudson with mom Goldie Hawn (sans ex A-Rod,) Penelope Cruz, Pedro Almodovar, Nicole Kidman, Daniel Day Lewis and Dame Judi Dench all paid their stop-and-repeat dues.
But when Madonna turned up with her daughter Lourdes Leon the press line erupted into literal screams of OMFG! I kid you not, those were the exact words out of one of my colleagues upon Madge’s entrance onto the red-carpet. “I can’t wait to see this,” Madonna stated. Girl can steal a spotlight.
