Ricky Gervais Gets His Blog On, Defends Himself

ricky gervais defends himself via blog

Ricky Gervais has gone to his blog to defend his Golden Globes hosting performance.

As we've said before, you get exactly what you pay for with Ricky. It'd be pretty naive to hire him and expect the comedian to play it safe.

Here's what Ricky had to say on his blog in his defense:

"Obviously the rumour that the organisers stopped me going out on stage for an hour is rubbish. All the same conspiracy theories as last year too…'so and so was offended'…'hasn't been invited back yet'…exactly the same as last time. 'Paul McCartney was furious'…no he wasn't. And nor was Tim Allen and Tom Hanks. I was drinking with them after."

"I did every link I was scheduled to do. The reason why the gaps were uneven is because when I got the rundown I was allowed to choose who I presented to, [and I chose] the spots that I had the best gags for."

"I enjoyed the Globes more this year. I think I had better gags. More along the lines of the Mel Gibson one last year."

We believe U, Ricky! Why would Tim Allen and Tom Hanks take offense, anyway?

Tom Hanks is Tom Hanks…enough said, and Tim Allen was in Toy Story 3…he's doing just fine for himself!

Do U think celebs are legitimately angry with Ricky Gervais?

    Who gives a shit. Go find another video of that dumb little brat who raps poorly.



  2. 2

    yeah i dont care



  3. 3

    He just said celebs weren't offended. Did you not read what you just posted?



  4. 4

    Oh who the fuck cares.
    If anything, Gervais turned the Golden Bore Awards into something someone was half interested in.
    You shitheads should be thanking him.

    I don't believe anyone was actually offended. I think they were embarrassed to laugh because THEY thought it might be offensive.

    Ricky Gervais is one of the funniest host we've had in years. He is hysterical and people are afraid to acknowledge that outloud. I find that quite interesting.

    AJ probably was after those remarks about the tourist - something tells me she can't take a joke about herself…..cuz she's perfect and all………

    I love him..always have. idk why media always trying to find a catfight. i didnt think anyone had a problem from what i was watching. even johnny depp, Bruce and angie took his jokes very well and those were the funniest gabs he gave.



  8. 8

    the only ones who might be offended would be the Scientology celebs. but we all know most of them are nuts anyways

    honestly perez i love your site just because you give some good information…….. most of the time……. but who gives a shit even if he did in fact hurt celebs feelings………….. it's HOLLYWOOD. they make millions of dollars of course people are going to make-fun of them sometimes for being their superficial selves.



  10. 10

    I agree w/ you cats……who gives a fu*k what he says! I had always been a huge fan of Ricky G but he made himself look like a short, bitter, drunk prick! You went too far dude!

    I'm sorry, but the golden globes and the general awards season is just one big circle jerk where rich and famous people gather together to hand out awards to other rich and famous people. It's all so contrived, especially in a world where so many people are barely getting by. But to be fair, I do enjoy it. My point is, these celebrities go around all day getting their asses kissed by virtually every person they come into contact with. If they can't handle Ricky Gervais poking fun at them for a few hours then thats really their problem, not Ricky's. I get that celebrities take themselves seriously, but they need to calm down. Once they are done being 'so insulted', they all get to take a limo back to their million dollar mansions and drink champagne with more rich and famous people. I mean really.

    I think it's funnier if they were offended!! LOL

    I find Gervais to be mean, crude, and inaccurate. I happen to have liked The Tourist which was made to attract an international audience. It only did fair in USA but if you add foreign revenues it has earned $186 million which is not bad at all. We all know that Robert Downey Jr has had addition problems, but recently he has also done very well, and he is talented. The Golden Globes is a forum to acknowledge entertainers, not to tear them down. If Gervais was hard up for jokes, there are plenty of targets in the political arena. I hope the executives of the Foreign Press will wipe the s*** off their own faces and not bring him back.

    Why would they have a fat ugly Brit do the awards any way because we really care what England has to say? The only reason this guy can get a female is because he is famous; if he wasn't then he would just be another ugly fat Brit trying to find a gal.



  15. 15

    I thought he was hilarious!



  16. 16

    I think some a-hole actors egos where bruised publicly and they where upset for sure.Hollywood needs to lighten up and not take themselves too serious.



  17. 17

    I could care less if he hurt anyone's feelings. More importantly he was not funny at all. Not one iota, he did tired jokes about things that people already know about. If he wanted to be really out there and break ground - write some new material and hit people who aren't expecting it. Why no joke about Scarjo and Sondra in the same room?



  18. 18

    RICKY,JUST GO AWAY. ENOUGH OF YOU FOR NOW.YOUR NOT FUNNY OR CUTE…



  19. 19

    I've never heard an audience at this sort of event groan so loudly before!



  20. 20

    I think the HFPA just doesn't want the celebs to be mad at them for approving this highlarity. :D



  21. 21

    I watched it, I cringed, I thought Ricky was hateful and mean spirited. Hope he does not come on this show again.



  22. 22

    I've seen worse. Thought he was pretty funny!



  23. 23

    Re: dodo – i was unaware that Robert Downey Jr had serious math problems. His "addition"problems must be terrible.



  24. 24

    ricky the trick is, you've got to use your use



  25. 25

    This whole thing seems to be rather petty. I'm pretty sure 99% of the stars who had a little fun poked at them are coping just fine. Anybody who has seen Ricky perform before will have known what to expect. The Golden Globe Gods should have screened his material first if they were seriously worried about it.

    And, sigh, why do people bother posting that they don't care? If they really didn't care wouldn't they a) stop reading this blog all the time and b) not go to the trouble of posting?

    Who cares if you don't care? Don't bother posting it. Save yourself the effort.

    I posted because I care so much my heart bleeds. So so much.

    Congrats Ricky Gervais!
    You were brilliant & hysterically funny!



  27. 27

    Re: maggiegirl – Me too.They need to loosen the fuck up and laugh some.They're rich for Christ's sake.They don't have to worry about what the average person does.



  28. 28

    Anyone insulted or finding this not funny is just stupid, seriously. Oh boo hoo, celebrities got made fun of, oh no, I hope they go home and crying in their millions that moronic people like all of you let them earn for their shit acting. This is the first Golden Globes that I enjoyed.
    Re: dodo – The Tourist fucking SUCKED and everyone agrees!! Angelina can't act her way out of a paper bag. Oh and it's ok to make fun of politicians but not celebrities. You are the dumbest person alive, please do not procreate
    Re: veryvuitton – He's married jackass, sorry he is not like our shallow celebrities.
    Re: FemaleFilmMajor – Right on, seriously it's sad how offended people are over absolutely nothing.



  29. 29

    Re: dodo – Oh, lighten the fuck up. The celebrities will be okay, Ricky Gervais didn't hurt their feelings. Don't forget, he's a rich and famous (and brilliant) celebrity himself. The Tourist was garbage, Robert Downey Jr. is an addict (addition problems? really? haha, poor guy must have a hard time counting his monies). It's funny to poke fun at those things. RDJ does it himself all the time. JOKES ARE FUNNY OK.

    Re: veryvuitton – HI, ever heard of the foreign press? The Golden Globes aren't just for Americans you dipshit.

    he owned that show last night!
    rd jr looked ridiculous, he earned all the bad mouthing he has received
