american-idol

its been a couple weeks since our last rant… so we figured this would be a good topic to start back up again… Idol… American Idol… this show jumped the shark years ago, grasping at atraws to remain relevant. Regardless of the wanna-bes that show up to the tryouts, the show is lame. It has been lame for some time and all of the viewing public hopes that this horrible season closes out the legacy. As an open letter to the producers, please walk away and end it. We no longer want to watch the train-wreck its become. If it does come back, please show us ALL the horrible auditions that you’ve edited out. We dont care about the good auditions… we wand to see that bad ones! 

Is “American Idol” no longer the cultural titan it once was? The numbers are in for last night’s season finale. Not even the notoriously kind Judge J.Lo would have been impressed.

For the first time in a long time, “Idol” won’t finish as the top-rated program in primetime. According to preliminary numbers, NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” will go down as this season’s top-ranked program. The NFL game of the week averaged around 20.7 million viewers, while “Idol’s” Wednesday edition averaged 19.7 million viewers this season. With big NFL ratings come big numbers for the league. Last December, according to The Hollywood Reporter, “the NFL pre-emptively renewed TV rights deals with CBS, Fox, and NBC for nine years (through 2022) at an average increase of 7 percent per network that will take revenue for the NFL from $1.93 billion annually to $3.1 billion by 2022.”

Zimmerman family member calls NAACP ‘racists’

If there is a bandwagon to jump on, the NAACP will be there. Same thing with Al Sharpton and Jessee Jackson. Guilty until proven innocent is their ‘unspoken’ mantra. It appears that the NAACP is the “legal” version of reverse racism… Is there a NAAHP? (Hispanic)? Perhaps the Zimmerman family should seek one out. With only a portion of the facts available, I think its horrible that so many people, celebrities included, have jumped on the ‘Trayvon’ train for shameless publicity. Speaking of celebrities, what have Rosanne Barr and Spike Lee done in the last 20 years? These are two of the most irrelevant celbs someone could find…

In a letter obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller on Monday, a family member of George Zimmerman ripped Seminole County, Fla. NAACP president Turner Clayton for a rush to judgment in the Trayvon Martin case.

“It’s time for you to end the race issue in this matter and call for cooler heads to prevail,” the letter reads. “If something happens to George as a result of the race furor stirred up by this mischaracterization of George there will be blood on your hands as well as the rest of the racists that have rushed to judgment. You need to call off the dogs. Period. Publicly and swiftly.”

George, the letter adds, “has been called a racist and a bigot and there have been very few that have stood up for him.” The letter was addressed to Clayton at the NAACP’s national headquarters in Baltimore.

The family member, whose identity TheDC has confirmed but is withholding out of concern for the Zimmerman family’s safety, said George Zimmerman “has been found guilty” in the court of public opinion “until proven innocent,” adding that the details of what happened on Feb. 26 — the night Zimmerman shot Martin in what he claims was self-defense — “will not be disclosed until the police report is made public.”

America thinks LeBron James is more overpaid than anybody but Snooki and Kim Kardashian

The writer of the article clearly has a bias towards Lebron. Simply put… someone who is as self serving as Lebron needs to be on this list. 99% of all Americans hate these three people because of their sheer irrelevance. Besides, the NBA is filled with many many examples (as the writer states) of players who are paid way too much for mediocre performances. I think ill start to lobby to have the nba shut down… its a horrible organized activity.

Nestled within the results of a new joint lifestyle survey conducted by Yahoo! Finance and Fitness magazine is an interesting little NBA nugget. Asked to identify people who make way more money than they deserve, nearly a quarter of survey respondents picked LeBron James.

In addition to questions about monthly finances, planned uses for tax refunds, spending preferences and how money impacts relationships, 2,000 Americans were asked, “Who do you think makes way more money than she/he deserves to?” The most popular choice was mom-and-wife-to-be Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi of “Jersey Shore” fame, picked by 51 percent of those surveyed. She was followed closely by Kim Kardashian (45 percent), with whom we are all very familiar.

There’s a big gap after the two reality stars — the third-most popular answer didn’t get even a quarter of respondents’ votes — but James is No. 3 on the list. Twenty-four percent of the 2,000 people surveyed said the Miami Heat superstar and two-time league Most Valuable Player gets paid more money than he deserves.

At what point does the large sites start calling this kid a freak? This is pretty well documented at this point…

Tween dream Justin Bieber was all smiles as he arrived at the NRJ Music Awards in Cannes, France, on Saturday night. Not smiling … Team omg!, who thought his cheesy motorcycle jacket outcheesed his Provolone-infused pose. And dare we say we even miss his signature sideswept ‘do?! (1/28/2012)

M.I.A.’s Raised Middle Finger Raises Question: Why The Provocation?(Video & Pic)

mia middle finger 2

M.I.A., Guess what? No one heard of you before the half time show at the Superbowl and no one will care in 24 hours. You were at Minute 13 before your performance and now you’re at Minute 14! Welcome to irrelevance! Because of your actions, half time next year will now feature a mime instead of a music show. You’re so ignorant of the stage you were on that your self-importance took over your judgement… lame. Video and more pics below

So, who used whom in the Madonna/M.I.A. Super Bowl halftime controversy–per that already famous middle finger that M.I.A. offered tens of millions of viewers before the censors could get to it? Did Madonna encourage this insurrection from her guest rapper, so that she’d have some provocation in her otherwise family-friendly set without having to take the rap herself? Or was M.I.A. using Madonna and the Super Bowl to get attention for her own new video and forthcoming album? Or maybe just driven to atone, in her own outrageous way, for having sold out in agreeing to be Madonna’s celebrity cheerleader?

Whatever the motives, this is hardly the first time M.I.A. has gotten the public’s hackles up. Her status as a lightning rod for controversy was satirized just a couple of months ago on “Saturday Night Live,” when an actress parodying M.I.A. interrupted a spoof Christmas duet with Michael Buble by repeatedly firing a pistol in the air, mid-carol.

Really? This chump thinks he’s going to the next Steve jobs? He’ll be more like the bankrupt MC Hammer. The only thing Kanye cares about is himself and how “great” he can be… I’m glad to be around as his slide into obscurity starts. 

Kanye West went on a marathon tweeting spree last night in which he touched on a wide range of topics, including the announcement of his new design company, details of his new fashion line and the revelation that he has severed ties with the William Morris agency after his agent left to join Creative Artists Agency. “I have no agency representing me currently,” the rapper wrote.

According to West, his design company, DONDA, “will galvanize amazing thinkers and put them in a creative space to bounce there dreams and ideas.” The company, which is named after his late mother, will be “comprised of over 22 divisions with a goal to make products and experiences that people want and can afford.” West says that he is “assembling a team of architects, graphic designers, directors musicians, producers, A&Rs, writers, publicists, social media experts, app guys, managers, car designers, clothing designers, DJs, video game designers, publishers, tech guys, lawyers, bankers, nutritionists, doctors, scientists [and] teachers” for this extremely ambitious project.

Backers of Calif millionaire tax target Kardashian

What a great idea for a promotional idea! They only paid 1 point higher in taxes than someone making $47k?  These hacks deserve and need to pay more than their fair share in taxes… this is an outrage and if this bill doesn’t pass in California, I’d be very disappointed… 

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Kim Kardashian, the model who has parlayed reality TV fame into a personal fortune for her family and herself, is the target of a new online advertising campaign asking Californians to support a proposed ballot initiative to raise taxes on its wealthiest residents.

An online video from the Courage Campaign flashes images of Kardashian living the good life and proclaiming that “being on TV has changed my life, because you get lots of free stuff.”

The video says Kardashian made $12 million in 2010 but paid just 1 percentage point more in California income taxes than someone making $47,000 — 10.3 percent vs. 9.3 percent.

keeping_up_with_the_kardashians-show

I’m glad see that somone took up what we’ve been saying for ages! The Kardashian’s are a waste of space make sure to sigh the petition to get them off here.

What do Change.org and Occupy Wall Street have in common with some Kardashian haters? They all are organized groups of people trying to get something done — in the Kardashian case, they want the reality clan off of television for good!

“In a grass roots effort, we have collected [thousands of] signatures for a petition asking E! Entertainment to remove the Kardashian suite of shows from their programming,” petition organizer Cyndy Snider said in a statement. “We feel that these shows are mostly staged and place an emphasis on vanity, greed, promiscuity, vulgarity and over-the-top conspicuous consumption.”

The petition — available at GoPetition.com — is just one of the organized efforts to get the Kardashian/Jenner clan off television screens, clothes, and perfume and nail polish bottles everywhere. Websites and Facebook pages are also calling for their ouster.

They forgot to add to his ad, “You also need to have some dough, because I’m now broke.” This is going to crash and burn pretty quick.

PERSONALS
Separated 43-year-old man seeks woman willing to compete for his love on television. Please don’t be a fan of ’80s soft rock music. Ability to talk your way into highly-secure events you were not invited to is a plus.

Sources close to Tareq Salahi tell TMZ he is pitching a dating show to various networks, with the title … “Seducing Salahi.”

We’re told the show would shoot at his winery in Virginia and would be of the “Flavor of Love” variety — with 14 women competing for Tareq’s affection.

According to our sources, several networks are interested … so don’t say we didn’t warn you.
