Celeb Slam (06-08-2016)

A parting of ways

I guess we all better get ready for some new Taylor Swift songs.

Despite all my rage

An unfortunate reality of fame is that appearance is really the only thing that matters, particularly in a world where social media reigns supreme. It's all about the look of the thing rather than the truth of the thing.

Reese gets rowdy

There are few things more likely to land a celebrity in this space than a wildly overinflated sense of self-importance. The only thing funnier than a famous person saying or doing something stupid is someone saying or doing that something stupid whilst swept up in a maelstrom of delusion and self-involvement.

Booze helps too.

Everybody hates Chris

It's no secret that we enjoy taking celebrities to task for their foibles. The world of the rich and famous is populated with people who say and do silly and stupid things. Then we lightly mock them for their silliness and stupidity. For the most part, it's all in good fun.

However, there are a few folks out there who inspire real vitriol. Those celebrities are the ones who have managed to make themselves into utterly unsympathetic nozzles who warrant actual scorn. They are the 'all in good fun' exceptions terrible, terrible human beings who deserve far worse than a mere dressing-down in print.

Parking wars

A story comes along every once in a while that perfectly illustrates the attitude of selfish entitlement permeating the world of entertainment. Not everyone working in the industry is an arrogant egomaniac, but a lot of them are and you can always count on them to give you a wonderful example of their idiocy.

Thanksgiving throwdown

The holidays can be a stressful time. Every family unit has its own unique quirks; these quirks can definitely lead to strained interpersonal relations. We've all had to deal with a horrifyingly racist grandparent or a druncle or two; it's all a part of dealing with the season. But there are certain lines that shouldn't be crossed, no matter how awkward the circumstances.

For instance, getting into a full-on brawl with your baby mama's new man on her front lawn in front of your kid on Thanksgiving morning is not acceptable behavior. And yet that's exactly what Gabriel Aubry father of Halle Berry's 4-year-old daughter Nahla did.

Hulkamania!

Hulk Hogan is perhaps the most revered figure in the annals of professional wrestling history. He was the main star during the WWF zenith that was the 1980s. Like so many of his fellow wrestlers, he also stuck around long after his physical peak had passed, putting in multiple decades of work in the squared circle. He has become a pop culture icon, a self-perpetuating, reality-show-starring fame machine. So what's the next step?

That's right; Hulk Hogan has a sex tape.

Brown vs. Drake

I for one thought the days of the old-school beef were dead and gone. In this age of constant connection and social media, so much of the disrespect that needed to be dished out face to face can now be done instantly via the power of the internet. Hip-hop hatred has become a thing that is confined to the computer screen more often than not.

But then we get something like last week's incident between Chris Brown and Drake and we're reminded that while words can hurt, thrown bottles usually hurt more.

It all went down on the night of June 13. Brown and Drake were both in attendance at a club called W.i.P. in New York City. Specifics are sketchy everyone has a different story but the general gist seems to be that Brown's and Drake's respective entourages got into a full-on brawl in the club. Said brawl involved bottles being thrown and innocent bystanders getting swept up into (and injured by) the melee, including an Australian model and San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker.
