Please examine the picture above. Does anything From this W Magazine cover seem wrong to you? Hopefully if you have any understanding of the female body you are struck by the size of Demi Moore’s hips. They seem a great deal smaller than her shoulder width. This picture was posted on Twitter by Demi Moore herself. She tweeted, “Here is the original image people my hips were not touched don’t let these people bullshit you! http://twitpic.com/q4v70″ Demi, Listen you are 47 and have given birth to 3 children. Count them 3! I don’t think the hips in this picture would allow for natural childbirth. Don’t professional photoshop people know to use it sparingly! Yes, Demi Moore seems to break all the rules about aging, but please don’t act like she hasn’t had any “upgrades.” This picture is just something that I will not believe. And I am not alone. Photographer Anthony Citrano has tweeted a little wager to Demi. “@mrskutcher I started this, so I’ll (try to) finish it: $5k to charity if that’s really the original.” He then explained a little more by releasing: “To reiterate, Demi is a beautiful woman who needs no help from retouching. This was never about her, nor about retouching – I have no problem with either. Further, I feel bad that Demi is on defense – she should not have to defend other people’s mistakes; W Magazine should be addressing this rather than her. Having said that, she did raise the stakes considerably yesterday by posting what she claims is the original unretouched shot, along with the accusation that “these people” (presumably Xeni and me) are “bullshitting.” Well, whether or not her hip was botched, I do not believe for a moment that the image Demi posted yesterday is the original shot. If she’s aware of that – and I expect she is – it’s irresponsible (and silly) of her to make that assertion. So, I’ll see her move and raise her $5,000: if the shot she posted yesterday is really the unretouched original, I will donate $5,000 to a charity of her choosing. Let’s see who’s “bullshitting”, shall we? Whaddya say, Demi? Are we on?” I seriously can’t wait to see exactly how this one plays out… and which charity will she pick.
A few words come to mind when you think of Katie Couric. Intelligent. Graceful. Respected. Hard Working. What about dancing queen? A few pictures have now surfaced on Facebook of Katie Couric celebrating becoming an anchor on CBS News. Nothing is wrong with these pictures, she’s completely covered up and not doing anything inappropriate. Her pride on the other hand might be slightly bruised. Those aren’t exactly dance moves to do in front of your grandmother.
Adam Lambert performed the last performance of The 2009 American Music Awards. He was to perform a song from his soon to be released album. Ignore the fact that he got more hype than the actual winner of American Idol (Lambert was runner up). Viewers anxiously awaited what his performance was going to entail. View for yourself on Perez Hilton’s blog. The video is soon to be pulled though since ABC is trying it’s best to get the uncensored versions offline. So what did Lambert do to cause such a stir? Three Things: 1) he pushed another man’s head into his crotch and rubbed it around 2) he kissed another man for a good 10 seconds, if not more 3) he flipped off the audience 4) he grabbed his crotch. Ok, I understand a few of these things have happened before, crotch grabbing happens daily in our society, but the rubbing another mans head in his crotch? The shock value of this performance was too much, and producers censored it for the West Coast. He was not the only person censored Jennifer Lopez fell during her performance and it was edited out. To add insult to injury? Lambert fell, and his fall was kept in the show! So what does Adam Lambert think of the editing? As you can expect he is not too pleased.
“There’s a big double standard, female pop artists have been doing things provocative like that for years, and the fact that I’m a male, and I’ll be edited and discriminated against could be a problem.”
“People are scared and it’s really sad, I just wish people could open their minds up and enjoy things, it’s all for a laugh, it’s really not that big of a deal.”
Apparently his performance has caused ABC to receive over 15oo complaints. Well The Twitterverse has also exploded. People praising Lambert or saying he went to far, so many comments are still swirling. He has been a trending topic since it happened, and in the 20 minutes it has taken me to think up and write this post 2000 more tweets have been posted about him. I think he succeeded in causing a buzz surrounding his name.
Recently I talked about how regular people liked to impersonate celebrities on twitter. In that case these people would make up accounts under a celeb’s name, but they would not be able to verify it. (Remember that handy-dandy check mark in the upper right hand corner on the twitter page?) Well, this is a different type of impersonation. A hacker cracked Britney Spears’ password on twitter (Her verified account), and posted that she was giving herself to Satan. The actual page is below:
So what is a Celeb to do when they have just given themself to Lucifer publicly on their own twitter page. Well for Britney there are a few issues that cross my mind. Her password was not secure, her staff regularly posts for her, just look at the one saying, “Britney rocked it in Melbourne last night!” The post was not just Britney being weird talking about herself in the third person, it’s actually a staffer being paid. So who knows how many people actually had her password. One person told a friend, who told a friend, who told a friend, who signed in. Or maybe her staffer was mad at her diva demands and did it herself. The options are limitless, but ultimately who’s to blame? Twitter? I really don’t think they are to blame if she gave out her password, or in fact was dumb and had “ilovejustin” as her password. Ultimately Britney is to blame, and I think she knows this, since she just took down the posts, and switched her password. (I would assume she wouldn’t be that dumb) Just a little excitement, which is why over 3 million people are following her.
Imagine you are 28 years old and you have to move back in with your parents. Chances are you don’t have the money to live on your own and your life is pretty much sucking. I’m sure the line “our house, our rules” is a regular occurrence. What can you do to make the situation not suck? Well if you are Justin Halpern you start a twitter called Shitmydadsays posting random profane quotes that are almost too much to take from your father. The account now has just under 730,000 followers. What’s better than that? CBS just picked up the idea and is going to start a sitcom with it and Halpern has a book deal with Haper Collins. Seems like he’ll have enough money to move out soon, but then all the hilarious quotes stop. I think Halpern will play himself on the show, and become quite the ladies man in the Hollywood scene. I mean, just look at the picture above, it screams Casanova.

Seems like he inherited his fathers wit. Just look at his diagram
My Dad always told me never to make a bet that I wasn’t 100 percent sure I was going to win. He would say this, and then proceed to bet me… I probably was under the age of 10 at the time. Betting is fun as long as you win. We all do it, we bet on small things, like sports games or when someone is going to give birth, the gender of the baby, even the weight. Sometimes it’s harmless when you have the money, other times you can get into pretty sticky situations. Enough background, I’m sure you all know about betting anyways. But did you know that you can actually place bets ABOUT twitter? Yea, crazy world we live in huh? Nobody is happy just keeping their money these days. DSI Sportsbook is a popular betting website where you can bet on any sport or casino game. Recently word has hit the streets that you can also bet on what celebrity is going to cause the drama on twitter next. Here are the odds that I found on another blogger’s site:
BRITNEY SPEARS +900
JESSICA SIMPSON +900
PARIS HILTON +600
KIM KARDASHIAN +950
MISCHA BARTON +950
COURTNEY LOVE +850
SELENA GOMEZ +450
VANESSA HUDGENS +425
HEIDI MONTAG +375
TILA TEQUILA +500
The only issue I have? I have heard about this from my GoogleAlerts, and even other bloggers, but I can not for the life of me find the betting area for twitter on the DSI Sportsbook website. I do not have an account, and maybe thats my error. Maybe they have secret areas for members only to keep the prying world out, but I’m not to sure I believe that. Check it out. If this exists i think gambling addicts are going to be screwed, but if not twitter is like the cool kid at school people just have to gossip about.
