Howard Stern has fired back at troubled comedian Andy Dick, who went on an anti-Semtic rant on the Greg Fitzsimmons show on Tuesday, calling Stern “a shallow, money-grubbing Jew,” reports Radar.
Dick also reportedly said of Stern, “I have no problem with his big fat hook nose … and his money-grubbing, miserly Jewishness.”
Dick told Fitzsimmons that Stern “used to be a really great friend” but is furious with the self-proclaimed “King of All Media” after he hung up on him during a call-in appearance with Charlie Sheen earlier this year, and took shots at him with co-host Robin Quivers afterwards.
Stern was told about Dick’s comments by one of his listeners while on air, but wasn’t surprised Dick would sink so low.
“Yeah, well that’s where people like to go,” Stern said. “It kind of points out where people’s heads really are … And let me point this out there isn’t a moment in my life I don’t know that, that is what in is people’s heads … It always comes down to the Jew. And scumbags like Andy Dick, and I hadn’t head this yet, but I know what’s in their heads anyway.”
Stern continued telling Dick to get his act together, telling his listeners, “I guess Andy’s downward spiral continues, and now he’s blaming me for all his problems … Stop looking for handouts you fucking wacko, stop waiting for the Jew to give you a job!”
I’m not the biggest Adam Levine fan because I think he comes across as a huge douche, but I do like Maroon 5′s music and I’m in love with their Moves Like Jagger song, anyway he has kind of turned my opinion around in the new issue of Out magazine.
Levine, who is a judge on The Voice, has had rumors about him being gay nearly his whole career but that is just fine with him because as he puts it “if people didn’t think there was a small chance I was gay, then I wouldn’t be doing my job very well. Look at the best ones, guys whose sexuality was always questioned. Bowie. Jagger. Freddie Mercury. I wouldn’t be the front man of a band if that question hadn’t come up at some point.”
The 32-year-old, who has been linked to several of Hollywood’s hottest women and is currently dating Victoria’s Secret model Anne Vyalitsyna, has a gay brother and stands up for gay rights so this is how he gets to slamming American Idol in his interview. He claims the show makes their contestants stay in the closet and hide who they really are.
On American Idol: “What’s always pissed me off about Idol is wanting to mask that, for that to go unspoken. C’mon. You can’t be publicly gay? At this point? On a singing competition? Give me a break. You can’t hide basic components of these people’s lives. The fact that The Voice didn’t have any qualms about being completely open about it is a great thing.”
On homophobia and racism: “I’m realistic about the world, but I do have a very sunny perspective on things, when the ‘F word’ and the ‘N word’ are equally taboo, when you can’t just walk around saying that word — which you can, to be brutally honest — that’ll be when it’s really real. Homophobia and racism are very different and have a very different history behind them. But for some reason, we’re a little bit behind with homosexuality. The fact that gay marriage isn’t legal everywhere at this point is a joke. But there are things now that you never thought would have existed, so I think that we’re kind of in good shape.”
On The Voice and allowing openly gay people: “I talk about it in a very heavy way, but it’s definitely had a pretty profound impact on my life, that show’s become a part of me. Being in a position where you can help these people out and — of course I get paid, and of course it’s good for my career as well. But there’s a lot of real talent, and it makes me excited to know I’m part of that.”
On being gay: “I can single-handedly dispel any ideas that sexuality is acquired, trust me, you’re born with it. My brother is gay, and we knew when he was two. We all knew. We all really wanted to provide some cushion for him and constantly let him know that it’s OK, a lot of people don’t want their kid to be gay and will fight it at all costs. But I’ve got news for you—it’s a losing f-cking battle. The more you fight it, the more f-cked-up your kid’s gonna be. You’ve just gotta embrace it from the beginning. That’s the only way to deal with it as a family. Otherwise, you’re just screwing yourself over, and you’re gonna make your kid miserable.”
On being comfortable with his own sexuality: “I just love being as naked as possible all the time — it feels really natural to me. I’m extremely comfortable in my sexuality, so I can think, Oh, that’s a good-looking dude. Acknowledging that someone’s attractive and wanting to f-ck a dude are two different things. With a lot of guys who are hypersexual, it comes from some sort of disdain or dislike — they’re guys who love getting laid but don’t really respect women. That doesn’t mean that I haven’t been totally promiscuous and slutty in my lifetime, because I have.”
It’s always good to see people stand up for gay rights, I’m totally there with them. I also agree with him about American Idol, the amount of contestants that have had to stay in the closet while on the show is absolutely ridiclous. What do you think?
Oh and it’s no secret that he has no problems being naked because in nearly all of his music videos and photoshoots he has stripped down to show off his body. This photoshoot for Out is no different as you can see in the photos below.
I do love a good celebrity feud and it’s been too long since we’ve had one so here’s hoping that Harrison Ford‘s latest comments that see him calling Shia LaBeouf a “f#cking idiot” spark a feud between the two former co-stars.
But first let’s go back to the start when the two of them co-starred in 2008′s Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, which was a blockbuster hit earning over $800 million but was destroyed by critics and fans of the franchise. Then last year LaBeouf spoke about the film and how he was disappointed in it, he said:
“I feel like I dropped the ball on the legacy that people loved and cherished… You can blame it on the writer and you can blame it on (director) Steven Spielberg. But the actor’s job is to make it come alive and make it work, and I couldn’t do it. We (Ford and LaBeouf) had major discussions. He wasn’t happy with it either.”
Well now in an interview with Details magazine (via NME) Ford has spoken out about 25-year-old LaBeouf, he says “I think he was a f**king idiot. As an actor, I think it’s my obligation to support the film without making a complete a** of myself. Shia is ambitious, attentive, and talented – and he’s learning how to deal with a situation which is very unique and difficult.”
Ya know I agree with both of them. I agree with LaBeouf because the movie was a disaster and was painful to watch, but I agree with Ford because well he’s right LaBeouf is an idiot. Plus it’s Harrison Ford, who could argue with Han Solo? What are your thoughts on this?
George Clooney and longtime girlfriend Elisabetta Canalissplit up, but no one may have been as surprised as Canalis herself!
One of the model’s close friends, Chi magazine editor Alfonso Signorini, opened up about the couple’s relationship and breakup.
“It’s all over. It has come as a real surprise to me. They were getting on really well.”
Just last week, the editor spent the day with Canalis and things appeared fine. “She must have had about 60 text messages from George! She was so excited about meeting him as he had a few days off from shooting his film in London,” he recalled.
As for the split, he revealed: “From what I know it was him who dumped her and she stormed out of the villa. I’ve tried to get her on the telephone but it’s switched off.”
Any woman would be a fool, thinking they could tame him.
“Megan developed this Spice Girl strength, this woman-empowerment [stuff] that made her feel awkward about her involvement with Michael, who some people think is a very lascivious filmmaker, the way he films women.”
“Mike films women in a way that appeals to a 16-year-old sexuality. It’s summer. It’s Michael’s style. And I think [Fox] never got comfortable with it. This is a girl who was taken from complete obscurity and placed in a sex-driven role in front of the whole world and told she was the sexiest woman in America. And she had a hard time accepting it.”
“When Mike would ask her to do specific things, there was no time for fluffy talk. We’re on the run. And the one thing Mike lacks is tact. There’s no time for [LaBeouf assumes a gentle voice] ‘I would like you to just arch your back 70 degrees.’”
Nicolas Cage may be investigated for child abuse after he reportedly caused injury to his 5-year-old son during his drunken stupor, resulting in his arrest.
According to the police report obtained by TMZ, Cage’s wife Alice Kim told the police the couple were arguing “due to his intoxicated state” and Cage “fell while holding their son. The fall caused the 5-year-old to suffer a minor abrasion to his left knee.”
But a witness to the incident had a different version of the story. The man is reported saying he saw “Mr. Cage pull the male child to the ground by his hand.”
The report states that a child abuse detective was notified and the police wanted to interview Cage’s son, Kal-El, but Kim would not let them.
Radar Online is reporting that the child abuse detective determined that no further investigation was merited, but noted that a representative of Child Protective Service may be contacted and an investigation could be launched.
On the night in question, the Oscar winner was reportedly “very drunk” on a New Orleans street when a taxi driver allegedly witnessed the couple quarreling loudly. The cabbie reportedly called the police when Cage pushed his wife.
Cage is said to have taunted cops into taking him into custody, repeatedly refusing their request to quietly go home and asking, “Why don’t you just arrest me?” The officers ultimately obliged, charging Cage with disturbing the peace and domestic violence.
Kim reportedly denied any physical violence occurred, and said she did not wish to press charges and she also stated that “her husband was not attempting to injure her, but instead he was attempting to get her to follow him.”
Reality TV star Dog the Bounty Hunter bailed out Cage by posting a bond of $11,000.
Hefner is set to marry fiancee Crystal Harris on June 18th at the Playboy mansion.
Wilkinson, who lived at the mansion with Hefner from 2004 to May 2009, remains close friends with the Playboy founder, but claims if she doesn’t hear from the couple soon she’s going to bail.
“If I don’t get a save the date, I have another wedding to attend that same day,” she said.
“I got a save the date from one of my closest friends for that date. I’m planning on going to Hef’s, but I haven’t gotten the save the date for that same date. I’m getting kind of antsy because I need to pick which wedding to go to.”
Wilkinson, who married football star Hank Baskett in 2009, is hoping to hear from Harris — not Hefner — soon.
“It’s Crystal that does the wedding planning. She’s the girl! If she doesn’t give me a save the date soon I’m going to have to put in my save the date with the other wedding.”
This may be the third wedding for Hef, but it is Crystal’s first. And though their relationship got off on a nontraditional foot, what with Crystal sharing Hef with the Shannon twins, she wants her marriage to be a traditional one and that means no more sharing.
Hugh Hefner‘s fiancée, Crystal Harris, is doing more than just making music with her former record producer, Jordan McGraw. Life & Style reports that Crystal — who got engaged to Hef in December — has been caught with another man…and it’s Dr. Phil‘s son, Jordan!
We watched the 24-year-old lovebirds cozy up at the Chateau Marmont in LA on March 14. While Crystal was hoping to keep their romance low-key, Jordan didn’t care to hide his affections, kissing her shoulder and trying to hold her hand — still adorned with her 6-carat engagement ring. Despite Crystal’s impending June 18 wedding date to the Playboy founder, sources tell us that she and Jordan are very happy together.
“They’ve been sneaking around because Crystal is supposed to be happily engaged to Hef, and going out in public with Jordan would tarnish Hef and Crystal’s relationship image,” a source tells the Scene Queens.
The pair met through the Organica record label, where until recently Jordan worked as Crystal’s music producer. “Jordan was let go from Organica for dating female clients under the label,” the source says. “Jordan McGraw no longer works for the label,” Michael Blakey, president of the Organica Music Group, confirms to us, adding, “To the best of my knowledge, Crystal is very much in love with Hef.” Says a rep for Playboy, “Jordan and Crystal have a business relationship.”
Crystal’s wandering ways won’t come as a surprise to Hef’s ex Holly Madison, who told us just weeks ago, “Crystal may break Hef’s heart.”
Crystal follows in the footsteps of another of Hugh Hefner’s live-in girlfriends, Kendra Wilkinson. In her book Sliding Into Home, Kendra reveals that she snuck out to see now hubby Hank Baskett. “Our relationship was secret,” Kendra wrote. “[Hank] could only see me in private.”
I dunno… I think it’s time that Hugh Hefner should seriously consider dating women his own age. LOL.
On Friday, George Clooney resolved to stay single, despite near-constant speculation about whether he’ll ever wed his Italian girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis.
Clooney, 49, appeared on CNN’s ‘Piers Morgan Tonight’ alongside his father, veteran journalist Nick Clooney. And according to Us, the Oscar winner’s dad said he “yearned for the moment” his famous son would tie the knot.
But Clooney made it clear: his married days are behind him. “I hate to blow your whole news story, but I was married, so I gave it a shot,” he said, referring to his 1989-’93 marriage to Talia Balsam, the actress who now playsNatalie Portman‘s mom in the new rom-com ‘No Strings Attached.’
On Morgan’s broadcast, Clooney said his failed stint as a spouse should have “proven how good I was at it.” (Balsam, who never apparently renounced marital bliss, is now the wife of ‘Mad Men’ star John Slattery.)
Canalis, for her part, has expressed profound contentment with the relationship. The 32-year-old beauty told ‘Vanity Fair’ last year, “I feel more embraced than ever before…Being so loved is overwhelming…George has given color back to my life.”
In addition to rejecting a future as anyone’s husband, Clooney also told Morgan he wasn’t cut out for politics. “Honestly, my job is as good as they get,” he said, “I think that I am best suited as an advocate for issues….And I look to people who are far smarter and far better at this than I am to lead.”
Clooney recently confirmed that while doing humanitarian work in Sudan this month, he contracted malaria. On Friday he joked, “I guess the mosquito in Juba looked at me and thought I was the bar.”
“Elisabetta had no idea he was going to say that,” a friend of the Italian beauty told Popeater. “She thought she was going to be the girl who would finally get George to settle down and put a ring on it. She was totally surprised.”
How could she be surprised, the ENTIRE world knows about Clooney’s vow of no marriage.
Joan Rivers says FOX News can “go f**k themselves” after canceling her Thursday appearance on the network’s morning show for what she claims is retaliation for some biting comments she made about FOX contributor Sarah Palin.
Why so riled up, Joan?
It all started when the loud-mouthed legend told TMZ over the weekend that critics were “right” to blame Sarah Palin for the tragedy in Tucson, Ariz. Reports surfaced on Wednesday that FOX heard the diss and nixed Joan and daughter Melissa’s visit on ‘FOX & Friends.’
“We get a call this morning,” Melissa told me on the set of my HDNet show. “You’re canceled on FOX because of what you said about Sarah Palin.”
The top-rated news network denies that Joan’s comments had anything to do with the cancellation, rather, the morning was simply overbooked.
Joan says that she’s willing to take a lie detector test to prove FOX canned her over her Palin comments, which also included calling the ex-governor “stupid and a threat” and blasting her use of the term “blood libel” in a video statement on Jan. 12.
Asked whether she’ll accept an invitation to come back to ‘FOX & Friends,’ Joan went hardcore, saying they can “go f**k themselves.”
Shock jock Howard Stern has some less-than-flattering things to say about somebody, and this time, it’s not a guest on his show.
The radio host is accusing late-night legend Jay Leno of ripping off his material.
Stern appeared on Piers Morgan’s CNN show and told the host, “Jay is insane. And Jay is a crook. And the world knows exactly what he’s up to. He steals a tremendous amount of material,” the New York Post reports.
This isn’t the first time Stern has gone after Leno in the press. Not one to mince words, Stern said of Leno on the Early Show, “Just the mere mention of Jay Leno’s name makes me to want to vomit,” calling the ‘Tonight Show’ host, “a f****** con man, rip-off artist, no idea mother*******.”
So tell us, Howard, how do you really feel?
The more recent accusations against Leno are nothing new. In 2009, Stern accused Leno of stealing one of his sketch ideas outright. In the bit in question, both hosts invite a chicken to predict football wins for the following week. “This must be a giant ‘Punk’d’ on me,” said Stern following the incident. “This guy’s ripped off like ten major things from my show. But the chicken thing we did for years.”
If there’s one thing we know about Stern, his grudge against Leno isn’t going to end anytime soon, and his grievance has extended to the public at large. “I don’t know how he’s beaten David Letterman in the ratings,” he said. “It’s beyond my comprehension. America must be filled with morons who at night lay in bed — the ones who are watching him, they must be in a coma.”
Kanye West is a real gem, isn’t he? Apparently, the rapper tried to hijack Britney Spears today on Twitter. Just like he did to Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye tweeted the following message:
Not to be outdone, Britney’s manager, Adam Leber, posted a reply in true sarcastic fashion. I love it. Still, ‘Ye got some flack for the tweet, even though it was meant to be funny.
Thus, he has since deleted the message and added this instead, “On a serious note I’m truly happy for @AvrilLavigne and @BritneySpears… No hate in 2011!”
He added, “I thought LOL signified a joke… I didn’t get the 2011 LOL doesn’t signify a joke anymore memo… LOL or something else I guess.”
“I guess” that it would’ve been a good “joke” if this were 2009. Just sayin’.
Beckham says in his declaration, “…Nici has fabricated the following facts about me:
– that in August 2007, I committed adultery with Nici and another prostitute by paying for sex with the two of them …
– that about a month later, I again committed adultery with Nici at the Claridges Hotel in London
– that in October 2007, I contacted Nici while I was in New York seeking to again commit adultery …
– that Nici has had sex with me five times in total.”
Beckham calls Nici’s allegations “unequivocally false,” adding, “I have never met Nici, let alone committed adultery or paid her for sex.”
Aaron Sorkin is known for his work as a wordsmith, and his latest attack on Sarah Palin keeps with his tradition of clever and cutting remarks.
Sorkin, who authored the acclaimed screenplay for recent box office hit ‘The Social Network,’ took to The Huffington Post to air his grievances about Palin’s recent defense of her on-camera slaughter of a caribou on the most recent episode of ‘Sarah Palin’s Alaska.’
On Sunday, prior to the airing of the highly-promoted show, Palin tweeted, “Unless you’ve never worn leather shoes, sat upon a leather chair or eaten meat, save your condemnation of tonight’s episode,” to which Sorkin replied in a lengthy tirade entitled ‘In Her Defense, I’m Sure the Moose Had it Coming.’
Sorkin, a self-proclaimed omnivore, balked at Palin’s blanket assertion that no one who has used or eaten animal products has a right to critique the virtually-pornographic nature in which Palin’s hunting adventure was portrayed.
“You weren’t killing that animal for food or shelter or even fashion,” he wrote. “You were killing it for fun. You enjoy killing animals.”
Sorkin went on to criticize the former governor’s motivation behind the segment, calling the animal “the first moose ever murdered for political gain.”
“You knew there’d be a protest from PETA and you knew that would be an opportunity to hate on some people, you witless bully.”
After successfully shooting the caribou, Palin said, “I feel a lot better now,” and proceeded to pose for cheerful pictures with her kill. Of Palin’s unnerving nonchalance, Sorkin wrote, “Like 95% of the people I know, I don’t have a visceral (look it up) problem eating meat or wearing a belt. But like absolutely everybody I know, I don’t relish the idea of torturing animals. I don’t enjoy the fact that they’re dead and I certainly don’t want to volunteer to be the one to kill them and if I were picked to be the one to kill them in some kind of Lottery-from-Hell, I wouldn’t do a little dance of joy while I was slicing the animal apart.”
‘The West Wing’ creator also addressed one of the main criticisms of ‘Sarah Palin’s Alaska’ — that the show is not at all representative of Palin’s own experience in the state as she often appears in awe of or learning the things she is supposed to be introducing audiences to. After calling her a “phony pioneer girl,” Sorkin said, “I’m in film and television, Cruella, and there was an insert close-up of your manicure while you were roughing it in God’s country. I know exactly how many feet off camera your hair and make-up trailer was.”
Sorkin went as far as to disclose his 2001 arrest for cocaine possession in his rant, noting his assumption that it would be brought to light by Palin’s people in response to his criticism.
Sorkin’s final thoughts on the ordeal? “I eat meat, there are leather chairs in my office, Sarah Palin is deranged and The Learning Channel should be ashamed of itself.”
Kathy Griffin hosted the VH1 Divas salute to the troops this weekend, but her “jokes” about Bristol Palin being “fat” fell flat.
“She’s the only contestant in the history of the show to actually gain weight,” Griffin said in reference to Bristol’s trip to the finals on “Dancing With the Stars.”
Even after the troops’ loud booing, Griffin continued the attack.
“No, come on, come on. She gained like 30 pounds a week, I swear to God, it was fantastic,” Griffin said. “She’s like the white Precious.”
(Actress Gabourey Sidibe played the role of “Precious,” a 350-pound black woman in the hit Lee Daniels film which was released last year.)
But Palin, 20, isn’t letting 50-year-old Griffin’s digs bring her down.
“The audience’s reaction to this ‘comedian’ spoke volumes, and the decent people I know would probably have booed her, too,” Palin told Pop Tarts in an exclusive statement. “I hope people didn’t have to pay money to hear her negativity and criticisms.”
The annual VH1 show, which was taped at San Diego’s Miramar Marine base and presented by the USO, also featured a slew of young performers such as Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj and Paramore.
According to PopEater’s Rob Shuter, VH1 producers considered editing out the awkward dialogue and response, recorded Friday night, but given the attention it generated, decided to leave it in Sunday’s television broadcast.
