The Disney Princess Time Forgot



I've always wondered why princess stories like Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin and The Princess and the Pea have been ignored by Disney for so long. All three have potential to bring about a new age in Disney musicals but for some reason no one ever really went for them. Thankfully we have Tangled to add to our collection.

Based on the hairy story of Rapunzel, Tangled has the perfect voice for 18 year old Rapunzel: Mandy Moore.

Now I've liked and disliked Mandy on many different occasions, but I think she's found a new way to use her voice. Animated Mandy is to die for!


The film itself regenerates a lot of Disney classics. The musical scene of the movie has Rapunzel cleaning and sweeping around her tower, reminiscent of both Cinderella and Snow White. Gothel, Rapunzel's "adopted" mother has a mash up of multiple Disney villains, most notably Ursula, Jafar and Scar). This theme continues and after a while it kind of gets annoying. Is there anything original about the plot line itself anymore? No not really! But it's still better than Disney's last epic fail of a movie, The Princess and the Frog.


What sets this movie apart is its AMAZING animation. I'm telling you there is no need for a 3D version of this movie. The water and forests look real as real can be. In the characters dancing alone, there is such attention to detail. Even their fingers move almost realistically. Even everyone's hair look (beautiful) and real.


Most of all, I've really grown to love the song selection they chose. I've read that there were additional songs written for the film, and they were deleted to the trash bin. Personally I would've gone with 2, possibly 3 more narrative songs but I won't be ungrateful!

PS For some reason, I love love love villains more than the good guys. So here is Gothel's "Mother Knows Best". I love the Broadway style they used throughout the film for her.

So why are people upset that these people are hot?

Glee is a semi sorta kinda family show. I can understand that families have very few shows that they can watch together.

But why are people (uptight women) in such a tizzy over the Glee cast posing in a hot, sexy, sex party photo shoot? *said in my best Kazakhstan accent* It's the same "sex sells" gimmick magazines have been using for years. I really don't even know people who read GQ who aren't old enough to realize whats being sold here. Soft, socially acceptable pornographic art.

The show itself is so for adults its not even funny. The singing keeps the kids entertained but everything else goes over their heads unless they've hit puberty. If you've managed to raise a child in this day in age, they already surf the internet mad hoored so it's essentially like trying to keep your sons from watching porn and your daughters from thinking they're fat (unfortunately). The pictures themselves are extremely beautiful and the girls conjure up memories of Farrah and the other Angels.
 


That was okay when it clearly was just tug art for dudes walls and  incentive for girls to go on a Jell-O diet.





The ladies look fucking amazing. And to be honest, I've seen worse photos in a Victoria's Secret catalog (funnily enough, that's where their undies are from). So I don't understand why those big ass posters and suggestively posed mannequins can be displayed in a mall right across from a Gap Kids, but these people can't get some really great pictures taken for a cover story interview.

Whip it baby!


Willow Smith's song "Whip My hair" is a fantastic. It's a great song for kids to enjoy and its good enough to be in the clubs too. The attitude and confidence in her voice and words are something every little girl should hear.


So when I saw that a mashup had been done with a Sesame street Muppet scene, I knew I'd have to dig a little deeper into the story of this video. Turns out a father and writer for S-Town wrote "I Love My Hair" for his obviously african american (adopted) baby. WONDERFUL!

It is so hard to live life with black hair if you don't know just how beautiful and amazing it is. There are plenty of times when I remember being made fun of because of my afro hair. Many men I dated back in the day thought they couldn't touch it! I mean c'mon..its hair.




I applaud Joey Mazzarino, the head writer S-Strizeet for understanding the plight of The Little Black Girl! Thank You! But I'm gonna have to say that Willow's mash up is a weeeee bit better AM I RIGHT?

Well You're a Fucking Idiot, Aren't You?


This is why I wish I still stayed at home. Bill O'fucktard was on The View this week and blatantly bitch slapped women, muslims and Americans within 5 minutes.



1. Don't EVER tell a woman "listen to me and you'll learn something". It's rude, sir.

2. You're wrong about everything, ever.

Muslims did kill people on 9/11. Muslims who happened to be TERRORISTS. This is basic and I cannot fathom why this adult man can't see the distinction. Joy and Whoopie were right to walk off stage because talking to idiots like Bill just needs to stop. There is no end to a conversation like that because most right wingers are also "have the last worders" too. Anything to "win" right?

I don't understand why people are up in arms over this masque. And I really dont understand why stupid racist Amercians think they can tell people "just not here" and think they are being fair. Build the fucking masque! Show the rest of the world that is watching us, that we are not the hateful bigots they want to get rid of! It's not in poor taste because 25% of the population is Muslim! They are share holders guys! Muslims have the right to build wherever they want because they are amazing human beings who have been hated from multiple sides for thousands of years! Give them a break and let them turn that stinky yoga studio into a place of worship. Maybe their prayers could liven up the joint.


How come we don't realize that America is to blame for 9/11. We think we own the world and that its our way or the highway. We are the bully that finally got nailed in the nose by that brown kid no one talks to. We had PROOF the attacks were coming and shook them off! I mean c'mon, we were as Tom Cruise says "being smug" about our safety.

Bill, any other television channel woulda canned your ass after this massive brain spew. Thank your lucky stars you're not on a real one.


PS Fuck it, we'll do it live!
What an asshole

Aw shucks


Well Courtney Cox is Courtney Cox again I guess!

After 11 years, the best hollywood marriage EVER has ended. Courtney and David are no more? At least thats what its looking like. Apparently this could mean huge ratings for her Cougar show I've never seen.

I will say, they put in a good 11 years and should just die together. Thats a long ass time to just get over.

plus they are so right for each other. Who's gonna take care of David now????? Doesn't he still look like such a goofy goof? cute to me, annoying to Courtney. I can dig it gurl. I'm Team Get Back Together Guys, Scream 4 Will Be Uncomfy If You Don't.

Thank god it was 3:41

I am not a Miley fan. I don't think there's been a time when I enjoyed her besides initially liking "Party in the USA" for a hot minute. Her voice sounds like shes been smoking for years and her arms remind me of a T-Rex's

Anyway, this video is just over the top sexy for a girl still in high school. We all thought Britney was a slut, but who knew the Miley Gang Bang Train would soon roll in. I mean this is what B nasty was doing at 17



And now we have Miley doing what could very well be mistaken for a foreign "club sex" video if you didn't put your contacts in before viewing...




Is it really because The Dahlia's birthday is in less than 2 hours that I find this totally inappropriate? How long till she and Justin Beiber are caught in a hot tub with an 8 ball and some negro friends doin em up the butt? Can you seriously imagine that on OK! Magazine? The Beibs totally still has a hat on of course..


Shout out to Lady Jones for the video!

Chaz Bono is very large

Being a very big Cher fan, I've recently come to a crossroads in my fandom. On the one hand, if Cher code tells me that The Cher can do no wrong, any that came from her womb must be Cher(ished). On the other hand, I feel as if Chaz Bono is a hot fucking mess of a person.


Dilemma.

Chaz is just too fat. I say this as a fellow chubster, mind you. It's not mean, kind of like how black people can say Nigga an it's not racist, dig? Anyway, I understand he is going through MAJOR body changes that push ones temple to the limits...But why are you that fat? And why have you been that fat for so long? It is as if he is trying to conceile every piece of himself that could possibly resemble a woman's. Not to mention, shouldn't a person be in good health before starting such a transformation? I mean thats its definition of hormone therapy what this dudeette has embarked upon.

Am I wrong here?

This weeks favorite song: "D's mutha fucka D's, Rosie Perez"

I don't really know what it is about Kanye. He's just a fantastic artist that I think trumps the likes of Lady Gaga. I was surprised when they announced their now dead tour plans, because Lady Gaga was the public draw. Not Kanye. After his MTV "ooooooooooooo" moment the tour plans were scraped. You could say it was all staged since that very same awards night catapulted Gaga's career enough to pay for her mega expensive "Monster's Ball Tour"...hmm

But anyway with my heart eagerly awaiting his new album, my Pandora account has been dominated by Mr. West c/o my beautifully crafted Kid Cudi station. "Good Morning" is a great weekend song to play right after you wake up. It's soon to be my new alarm song for good reason!

France's Michelle Obama Does Bowie

Scandalous! Carla Bruni has released a cover of David Bowie's Absolute Beginners and apparently its awful. I'm listening to it now, and of course its demo quality but its not half bad! Her accent gives it more depth than if she were a regular yankee covering another Bowie song. If you google Carla Bruni Absolute Beginners you'll come up with some pretty harsh critiques though. You'd swear she sounded like Roseanne Barr or something.



I say, beautifully done not Queen but First Lady of France.


PS Perez has such a monopoly on videos now...

I Just Gleed Myself...

I am beyond words right now! A preview of Glee's "Britney Spears" episode was posted by B Nasty herself!




How amazing is that? Naya Rivera is ok as a Madonnawannabe but Heather Morris kicked ass!!! It's like she always wanted to be Britney and finally got her chance. Awez

PS Totally didn't know Heather Morris is from Scottsdale, AZ. Funny how famous Arizonians always have to leave to be famous

Courtney, whats wrong with your face?



Bad Botox! Courtney Cox Arquette is looking rough...Scream 4 is going to be a fun movie to waste 10 bucks on, but the real horror is that very noticble lazy eye Coco is sporting.



Bad face lift perhaps? It will be a joy to watch her scream without emoting!

MIA is not a pop star!

Perez Hilton has been bashing MIA for quite some time (pretty much after MIA said she was not and never would be goo goo for Gaga).

M.I.A is a british painter, musician, director, and activist born to parents of Sri Lankan Tamil decent. You may know her from the fantastic song "Paper Planes" that was featured in the trailer for Pineapple Express. At 35 years old, she's been nominated for 2 Grammy's, an Academy Award and countless other awards for her contribution to the art community. She lived through and survived most of the Sri Lankan Civil War in the 80's and later began protesting war and violence around the world as well as its effect on entertainment. She is active in the "fight" against violence in video games and in film as she saw blood shed first hand as a small child. She is also an advocate for the education of those suffering from dyslexia, a disorder she battles with today.

On top of all of that, the girl is a fashion designer!

It would be easy to call her the Tamil Lady Gaga, only that would be giving Gaga some undeserved credit! I love M.I.A and she is a true artists who isn't focused on the marketablitiy of her art. She has a following and enjoys creating for that following.

*Fun side note that makes her even more awesome, her Grammy performance was on her DUE DATE! Nothing will stop this woman (ps I think having her perform this version of her song was stupid.)
MIA/ Kanye West/ Jay-Z/ Lil Wayne / TI - Grammys - 2009

Anyway she dropped a new music video and Perez has damned it as awful. I watched it and its not commercial but that doesnt make it awful!

Okay calm down. Leann Rimes is not the end of humanity



I've been reading a lot about Leann Rimes lately. She cheated very publicly on her husband of almost 10 years with a guy who was also married to someone else for nearly 10 years.

oh boy..

She denied in media outlets even when they were caught kissing and canoodling and so forth. Okay this is not the first time this has happened.

Now they have both divorced their spouses to start a new "honest" relationship. And all hell is breaking loose. People are calling this chick a slut, whore, bitch etc and its all a little over blown don't you think?

I keep reading this quote and I can understand what she did:

"This past year, for the first time ever, I put me first. I'm sure some people are thinking that I was totally selfish, but the truth is, there are times in your life when you have to be selfish in order to find out what truly makes you happy."

There is a difference between a Tiger Woods and a Leann Rimes. A Tiger Woods cheats because he gets away with it and enjoys that feeling. He cheats because he IS married. He has a spare at home when he's done with these bitches. Leann Rimes cheats because she's unhappily married and realized it too late. Leann Rimes cheats because she may have met who she was supposed to be with. Women after all are a little bit more in tune with themselves and their emotions. It may just be that she was blinded by a different, unsustainable love to her previous hubby and the veil lifted slowly but surely.

I actually commend Leann Rimes for getting out of a partnership she was no longer happy with. While her ex claims they were happy, we all know someone who is so wrapped up in their own view of how a relationship is going, and doesn't see the other person is miserable.


I'm gonna guess that's what happened here.

Did she need to cheat? no. But sometimes it can be an unavoidable end to a relationship. If true love blossoms out of it, is it still wrong?



PS in Angelina and Brads case yes. I know they are kind of the same thing but I say Death To Brangelina. Team Aniston on that one.

Such a double standard right? eh

Okay I know how this is!




Anthony Kedis of Red Hot Chili Peppers said some discouraging words against Glee this past weekend.

“Generally speaking, that doesn’t excite me,” he admitted. “Nothing against Glee or any of those American Idol type shows, but you know … music that is near and dear to our hearts and the people we wrote it for and play it for, it doesn’t make sense to be seen in a television format. It seems emotionally displaced.”

To be fair, he also said he's never seen the show. I went the whole first season, knocking it down. Now that I've gotten involved with the story line (that I wholeheartedly believe is better than the singing), I understand the appeal of Glee. I originally didn't enjoy the show because of the singing. Auto-tune is going to be music's true downfall and this show uses it more than it needs to. Sometimes its also hard to get over the change from dialogue to 100% studio produced singing. Once you get over that stuff, its easy to watch the show!

Because its so difficult for some people to get in to this show (like me), I can understand where he's coming from. But I do think if he sat and watched the show from Ep. 1 to the finale, he'd want RHCP to be featured. Sometimes the songs just go so well. I loved the "Defying Gravity" duet Lea Michaels and Chris Colfer did. It shows just how deeply these songs effect the characters and story line as well. You can find both characters versions as well as their duet (top one). A beautiful rendition that means different things for both characters.

Why I love gay men



Gay men are beautiful. They are a heightened species and more often than not they tend to be near perfect specimens. Whenever I see a gay man who takes care of his biznazz, my inner Dr. Frankenfurter screams in my brain "Ohhhhh Rockaaaay".



They dance better, they dress better, their conversational skills excel beyond what most men are capable of. And lets face it, they always smell amazing.


Loving my gays tonight

I am SO sad over this!


So this Dahlia has been singing LFO since hearing the news of Rich Cronin's untimely death. Of course The Dahlia's Dude doesn't really get it because he thinks L.F.O is G.A.Y. Let me say however that this group did a lot of good for music and fashion. I mean who really wore Abercrombie and Fitch before "Summer Girls"?.



Rich, at 35 you were way too young to go. You're lower lip biting, "girl..." spoken word bridges, and junk grabbing will be missed.

RIP

Can we all sue Britney Spears for harassment?


Because we've all seen her cooter one too many times. It seems that there is always a new hire of the Spears' that ends up breaking their silence for some cash.

A former bodyguard of B Nasty is suing the pop star for sexual harassment and is alleging CHILD ABUSE!
I'm calling total bullshit on this because the woman can't fart without asking twelve handlers for permission, let a lone harass someone with her snatch. Child abuse? whatever. I can vaguely remember this same story coming from another bodyguard a few years ago and nothing came of it. Her children have already been taken away so she's not flying below the radar (<--awesome Britney song btw).


According to Fernando Flore, Britney on several occassions, mooned the guard, showing him her goodies. When he reacted negativley, she uttered "You know you liked it". And yes...you know you fucking did!!! She also reinacted "The Graduate" and nuded it up while asking for 7 Up. Lolz

He ALSO claims when not beating her children with borrowed belts, she feed them shell fish when they are *gasp* allergic to it.

Oh and last but not least, she apparently has sex really loud...cause thats an effin crime.


Ok here is my take on it. Britney Spears is kind of a slut. It's not really breaking news, and its not all that bad because thankfully someone got this bitch on the pill. That being said, shes BRITNEY SPEARS! She is the definition of  "if I looked like that I'd be naked all the time"! If you're hot pop sensation boss wants to show her goods off around the house, you should be thankful you're getting paid for such a kush job, dude!

When it comes to the kids however...I seriously doubt she's around her kids enough to abuse them. Sadly she's got nannies for all that bonding.


So in conclusion


-naked boss=shut up and enjoy seeing a nake Britney Spears all in yo face. But that's hearsay so make sure you always make her out to be a bad parent so you're solidified a cash payout. Whoopins aren't illegal, sir. I don't agree with that type of punishment but you're the bodyguard. A well trained dog could do your job, so just be happy Rover retired.

Update!!! Girl version of F*ck You!!!

I went to do my nails which are in desperate need for a polish and what did I find? A girl version of F*ck You!

It's by a NY artist named Chrystina Orlando and its definitely being added to my favorites! It took quite a while finding this version as it seems the record label Cee Lo is under has filed a claim against it on youtube. It seems as if by changing the name of the video, she was able to upload it once again.



-D

F*ck You!



Cee lo Green most famous for his work with Gnarles Barkley has released his new video for single "Fuck You". But wait! there are two official videos!! The first is simple and makes you really listen to the lyrics and the other is a more traditional, MTV appropriate music video. Both are pretty awesome though I'm enjoying the lyric video more than the super busy music video.









I appreciate Cee Lo for so many reasons. He really has brought soul back to pop music. In a world of computer created tunes, he is still using his god given gift of vocal talent!

Poor Heidi

I really do feel bad for this hot, hot mess! She hates her body so she goes and orders the Demi Moore Special (everything) and now she hates it!

I don't believe for a second that this transformation was done at her own will. She married a skeezball hollywood wanna be and he most likely abused the crap out of her mentally until this was seen as her only viable option to stay relevant. All of the other ACTORS in The Hills have successful business ventures and what did Heidi invest in? Back problems and a soon to be removable MJ nose:


"My boobs are crushing me. They are totally too big and it's impossible to work out - they get in the way when I try to exercise. I have to wear two sports bras to run! It's heartbreaking. I can't live an everyday life. I can't hug my dogs anymore. Especially with my face in the condition it's in, I can't get up close or kiss them. Of they were to hit my nose I wouldn't be able to get it fixed again! I have to be really careful. I feel like a porcelain doll. I see so many things that I want to wear and can't I definitely didn't think about that part when I signed up for the surgery."

No honey you didn't think. I don't have monster boobs but I've got more than a handful and its painful and annoying. You can't wear what everyone else wears, you have cleavage in a turtle neck and your back hurts all the time. Plus, they really can crush you. I have to lift my boobs to take a proper deep breath! She obviously did not speak to anyone who has boobs that size let alone people similar in small frame with big jugs. Get them reduced and try and find Courtney Love's plastic surgeon. She almost looks like she aged naturally now! Lets just forget 1999-2008 when she looked like Mrs. Potato Head with different parts making up her face. She elected to widen her nose back to a semi normal shape

Hmm I think they can

Star magazine ran a story on Ashton and Demi claiming Ashton is a cheater cheater compulsive tweeter.

He recently took a jab at Star...through twitter stating:
"I think Star magazine calling me a "cheater" qualifies as defamation of character. I hope my lawyer agrees."
"STAR magazine - you don't get to stand behind "freedom of the press" when you are writing fiction."
I actually think they can...that's the whole point. Right?

To be fair its not right for publications to say someones cheating when they most likely aren't. But tweeting about that stuff makes Ashton sound like a douche....I guess some things never change!

Go Mary!

Hey yall! Well sorry about this embarrassing lag in posts, but hopefully I will get more time to devote to this place. I wanted to take some time and bash Bill O'REALLY?! for his comments made about single mothers.

Firstly, his comments to Jen Aniston are totally retarded but I'll post them for anyone who's not in the know:
[This is discussing Jen's new move The Switch, in which she plays a mid life woman who decides to have a child on her own, with donated sperm from a "perfect" candidate]

"She's throwing a message out to 12-year-olds and 13-year-olds that hey, you don't need a guy, you don't need a dad," he said. "That's destructive to our society."

O'Reilly went on to argue that remarks like Aniston's are hurtful to fathers, saying, "She's diminishing the role of the dad."
Now....I don't know if this is true or not...but I've HEARD that Jennifer Aniston is an actress and didn't write this movie. This is totally out of left field but doesn't that mean, shes just playing a part in a mediocre romcom? Give the woman a break, she doesn't even have kids! 


Anyway Mary Louise Parker, the wonderful woman who has been in some of my favorite films of all time (Fried Green Tomatoes and Boys on the Side) not to mention the absolutely amazing Showtime drama Weeds, has fired back at Bill.


To put a little bit of backstory....Mary and this former hottie rising star Billy Crudup used to be a happy couple expecting a child..that is until Clair Danes (yeah I know..) broke the family up and her and Billy left Mary like 9 months pregnant thus, a single mom.

Mary says:
"Why is being a single mother destructive? Give me a break. He sounds like an idiot. Who is he again? Maybe he’s right, I don’t know. I don’t think you necessarily have to be part of a traditional nuclear family to be a good mother. A lot of children from traditional nuclear families have really unhappy childhoods, and they have dysfunctional, distant parents who don’t pay attention to them. Also, some people don’t plan on being single parents. It’s not like you’re sitting at home and thinking, ‘Wow, I’d really like to do this by myself. I’d love to wake up six times a night and change diapers and have nobody to help me. That’d be great!’ I certainly didn’t do that. I think that opinion is pretty narrow-minded. People like him - and I don’t even know who he is, so this is just a guess… they usually just say shit like that for attention. He probably comes from a nuclear family and didn’t get enough attention as a child."

PERFECTION! I loved how no holds barred she was with this public statement. I will say that I was raised by two single mothers from two generations: my mother and and my grandmother. I had a wonderful childhood and learned what it truly means to be a woman in this world. Hearing my own young sister ask what fathers were for only validates my theory that

It is man, not woman, that is diminishing the role of the father in our society.

There are so many wonderful fathers out their, don't get me wrong, but it is the dead beat dad's actions and the subsequent reactions that have lessened the role of the father in our society, not the woman who takes on duel roles in a sexist and degrading world. They work twice as hard to get the same results as a nuclear family. We should cherish the women who are making Presidents (remember that Obama's mama was a single mother as well) instead of knocking them off of the pedestal they whole heartedly deserve.

Hey yall!

So the celeb world has kind of become a joke. Too many fake celebrities and too much LaLohan to be honest. Plus I'm becoming more of a "me" blogger. Head on over to http://ameansofescape.blogspot.com/

Kelis has sucked since 99 but also!


Doesn't this back beat sound a lot like Andy Samberg and Justin Timberlake's "Mothers Day"???


Like totally right? But again, the song sucks. Kelis used to sing..

They totally already did this movie!




As a Marilyn Monroe freak, I have seen lots and lots of films on the queen of glamor. That being said, "Blonde" was by far the second WORST behind the one with Ashley Judd/ Mira Sorvino *shudders*

Now director Andrew Dominik has decided once wasn't enough for "Blonde" and has once again adapted the Joyce Carol Oats novel into a movie.

Here's what I didn't like, there were so many fictional plot devices and people walked away thinking it was all true!

Hopefully this film takes a more truthful approach and simply uses Joyce's embeleshments like paprika.

Here is a photo of Namoi "Nipples" Watts as Marilyn. Hopefully (but not at all likely) she won't be toppless in this one too..we wouldn't want her putting out Joe Dimaggio's eye from across the room.

eh...
