Celebrity Slam - Noun and forever with The Rock

Written by Allen Adams

There’s no denying that there has been a seismic shift in the Hollywood landscape over the past decade or so. The rise of the superhero movie has ushered in an era of cinema driven largely by blockbuster franchises. It’s all about nine-figure budgets shooting for ten-figure box office returns.

It has also led to a dwindling number of people who could be rightly dubbed movie stars. Where once there were a score of actors – maybe more – who could be counted on for a huge opening weekend simply through their presence in a film, we’re down to a scant handful.

By any measure, you’d have to put Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on that list. Through hard work, savvy choices and an incandescent charisma, Mr. The Rock has put himself firmly onto the A-list.

Celebrity Slam - The Game hates the player

Written by Allen Adams

One might imagine that working on this feature every week allows us to tap into the pop culture zeitgeist pretty thoroughly. And one would be right – to an extent.

Here’s the thing: we find ourselves learning A LOT about the various goings-on in the celebrity sphere. We find out about budding romances and righteous beefs and a wide array of ego-driven idiocy. But the truth is that while we spend a lot of time on this stuff, we’re also, you know, old. And try as we might, us old folks tend to have trouble keeping current from time to time.

This brings us to Tekashi69.

Celebrity Slam - (Not) Above the Law

Written by Allen Adams

Making fun of famous people is what we do best here at Celebrity Slam. That delightful combination of constant scrutiny and rampant egoism that is inherent to pretty much all celebrities? Well, it’s essentially a perfect storm that lends itself to the saying and doing of hilariously stupid things.

But there are some famous folks who really go the extra mile, who become so consumed by their own delusions of grandeur that they transcend mere stupidity and achieve a higher plane. It’s a higher plane of idiocy, but still.

Steven Seagal is one such transcendent idiot.

Celebrity Slam - Conor vs. Fitty: Beef Edition

Written by Allen Adams

Ah, beef. Sweet succulent celebrity beef. We love it ever so much here at Celebrity Slam. It’s one of our absolute favorite meals. Doesn’t matter what kind of cut – sirloin or strip or T-bone or ribeye, we don’t care. It’s all delicious.

Celebrity Slam - Streisand's duplicate doggies

Written by Allen Adams

For the most part, when we’re not talking about famous folks beefing on social media or trying to create portmanteaus for new celebrity couples, we’re usually taking shots at the bizarre and/or idiotic behaviors of those in the spotlight. Goodness knows that there’s almost always opportunity to scorn, mock and generally make fun of these people as they say and do stupid things whose stupidity is delightful for us to unpack.

But every once in a while, we find a story that’s … different. It’s not the sort of story that we’re necessarily moved to mock – at least, not with the cheerful vitriol that we normally throw out there. But it’s so different, so unusual, so downright freaking WEIRD that we can’t help but devote some time to it in this space.

All of this serves to bring us to one remarkable fact: Barbara Streisand’s dogs are clones.

Yes, really.
