"Shake It Off" Offends Rapper

It’s hard to imagine, but Taylor Swift’s new video, “Shake It Off,” has been officially deemed offensive.

Yes, the celebration by dance that says everyone can survive the naysayers is getting some naysay of its own by a giant of the music industry.

That’s right, folks, none other than rapper Earl Sweatshirt. Here’s what he had to say:
  He hasn’t watched it, and yet, he’s more than happy to weigh in on its offensive.

The man’s name is Earl Sweatshirt, folks.

You couldn’t make the name sound smart if you put Professor in front of it.

What Did You Learn from your 20's?

This week on GIRL TALK with Melissa from The Weekender we reflected on our 20's. What was the biggest thing you took with you from your 20's?

I learned how to be independent. After college, I moved to Ohio and lived in a small apartment on the first floor of a house. I thought this was the coolest thing ever. My own place! But I didn't know the first thing about cooking, cleaning, or keeping the place up and running. It was on the job training. And for me, the ultimate learning experience.

And I also learned how to drive a stick! :)

How about YOU?

Here's a few comments from listeners...

--I wish I had the knowledge in my 20's that I have now...but what I have learned is what is meant to be will ALWAYS find it's way & does not need to be forced.
--I didn't think that I had a look at price tags so in my 20s I had that same attitude so I was robbing Peter to pay Paul until one day they took my car so I went to my parents for help and for once my parents did not help me. They said "figure it out" and I did. I learned a really good lesson from that!
--In my 20s I learned that it's ok to be single. Worry about your goal because there is always time for a relationship.
--I'm only 24, and realizing just how real those college loans are at a few hundred $$$ a month on top of rent, gas, groceries, cell phone, etc. I have an elementary teaching degree and of course I'm still trying to get a permanent position.
--Don't loan money to friends!
--I learned to not compare my accomplishments to anyone else's. We all do things in our time. Who cares if all your friends are married, that doesn't mean they are all happy.
--I learned to talk things out instead of getting angry and letting things ruin my day. This has made every day happier!
--I learned that student loans are real, and not "so off in the future".
--I learned it's all downhill after 25 (I turn 47 next month)
--I learned not to base life decisions on a guy. I have 2 daughters and my hope is they learn from my experience.
--I had triple digits partners, thought it was cool then, but now not so much. Alot of women don't take me serious or won't give me the time of day because of how many women I've been with....they think I'm after one thing. So my lesson learned is, don't sleep around. Even though I was safe, its not cool. They remember.
--I learned the value of patience and taking my time with pretty much everything.

David Letterman Tribute to an Old Friend

Some things just stand alone. Like David Letterman’s wonderful recollection of his 38-year friendship with the late Robin Williams.

It started at LA’s Comedy Store. “We wanted to make people laugh,” said Letterman. And then Robin shows up “like a hurricane,” and soon left the others in the dust.

The tribute ends with a collection of clips of Robin’s appearances on David’s shows.

Wonderful and funny snippets from two parallel lives. 

Exactly the way that Robin should be remembered. Thanks, Dave – and thanks, Robin.

Pay to Play?

According to some reports, the National Football league has made its top three choices for halftime entertainment at the 2015 Super Bowl: Katy Perry, Rihanna and Coldplay.

And the league has reached out to each of them to ask if they’d be willing to pay for the privilege.

Typically, Super Bowl halftime performers don’t get paid, but the NFL picks up travel, accommodations and production charges.

This year, It appears that the NFL has run out of money – so they want the halftime entertainers to pony up some dinero.

Let’s see how far down the A-list they have to go before they find someone willing to pay.

Meanwhile, it’s making more and more sense to have someone like Weird Al Yankovic do the halftime entertainment. If the league’s going to be a joke, then why not the Super Bowl’s halftime show?

Baby Summer Rain...?

Christina Aguilera welcomed her daughter to the world over the weekend, and shared her name with the Twitterverse shortly afterward…
  Summer Rain (not to be confused with a feminine freshness product) was delivered by C-section, so that might put Christina’s Playboy plans on hold.

In case you missed it, a number of sources (which admittedly could simply have been the repeat of one source, because it is the internet, after all ) last week reported – just before Christina went into labor – that she planned to get into shape after the baby was born and then pose for Playboy magazine.

More nude than the pregnancy pictures that were all over the place the week before that. And that’s hard to imagine, really.

French Montana's Got His Rea$on$

French Montana’s a rapper, a record producer and a companion to Khloe Kardashian.

He recently told Billboard magazine he wanted to “capitalize” on Khloe’s fame. But then he told Access Hollywood Live that he’s very mad that the remark was taken out of context.

He was trying to say that he thought Khloe’s name should be spelled with all the big letters – you now, capitalized. (Okay, that part I made up.)

In the interview, he also talks about surviving a gunshot wound to the head.

There is absolutely no correlation between that event and his current choice of girlfriend.

Kim's New Book

Kim Kardashian revealed recently that she’ll be publishing a book next April.

Not to worry – she didn’t write anything. [Insert your own joke here.]

Instead, she’s releasing a book called “Selfish” that features 352 pages of selfies.

Right. Pictures of Kim, some taken by Kim, some taken of Kim, but all pictures of Kim.

Just $19.95. Unless of course you happen to have Instagram, like the rest of the world.

Looks like you can hang onto that cash after all…

And here’s my two cents worth: if she keeps posting pictures like this one from the other day, she’s going to have to change the name of the book to “What Is WRONG With This Girl?

Shake It Off, Why Don't Ya?

Taylor Swift’s first single from her new album “1989” has been released.

Shake It Off” features Taylor and her back-ups performing a wide variety of dance moves, and it’s pretty good – if I dare say so – in its simplicity.

My favorite dancers – all done by Taylor – are the awkward ballerina, with the twerk victim a close second.

But go ahead and check it out for yourself.

Charlie Sheen Goes Big & Green with the Ice Bucket Challenge

You never know what to expect with Charlie Sheen.

I mean, which one will show up? Good Charlie? Bad Charlie? Out-of-control Charlie? Well-behaved Charlie? Or a Charlie we haven’t yet met?

Well, when it comes to accepting and one-upping the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, it looks like Good Charlie stepped up to the plate.

Check out the video to see how perfectly he plays it.

And to show he’s still got his sense of humor, he calls out Jon Cryer,  his former co-star on Two & A Half Men, Chuck Lorre, one of the producers of the show, and Ashton Kutcher, who took his place on the show.
