Quote Of The Day

quote-of-the-day-james-franco-kristen-stewart

“To me, then, the images of Snow White as a leader of immense strength, charging on horseback across the beach at the head of an army, has less to do with her character and more to do with the actress who plays her. Stewart has braved more scrutiny of her private life than most presidents. She has taken big career risks by doing films like Welcome to the Rileys, The Runaways and On the Road (nudity, I hear). She has worked her ass off. Whatever Snow White may be, Kristen is a warrior queen. Give her the crown.”

- James Franco, on Kristen Stewart, in his Huffington Post review of Snow White and the Huntsman

Arianna Huffington Gets Sued…Again

Filed under: Legal MattersMedia Minute

arianna huffington gets sued again

She is NOT making many friends lately.

Last month, we learned that bloggers were filing a class action lawsuit against AOL & Huffington Post, because the HuffPost contributing writers feel that they should receive fair compensation for their content.

Now, Arianna Huffington is being sued by political consultants Peter Daou and James Boyce "for failing to acknowledge what they claim was their critical role in the creation of the Huffington Post."

They first filed their lawsuit back in November, but it looks like they've still got a ways to go with this fight.

There's a long history between these three, but if you watch the film The Social Network, you'll get the basic idea of what happened. LOLz.

After all these recent claims against Arianna Huffington, what do U think of the woman? Is she truly mistreating everybody? Or are these people just looking for payouts?

Internet Dramz! Bloggers Sue AOL And Huffington Post

Filed under: Legal MattersMedia Minute

bloggers file lawsuit against aol and huffington post

Bloggers are NOT happy with Arianna Huffington!

Today, Freelance journalist Jonathan Tasini filed a class action lawsuit against AOL & Huffington Post, on behalf of a group of bloggers who claim that HuffPost "mistreats those who enrich it with content."

After AOL acquired Huffington Post for $315 million last month, contributing writers feel that they should receive fair compensation for their content, and they're claiming "mistreatment" by Arianna Huffington.

Here's what the complaint against Huffington says:

"If it were not for the labor of Plaintiff and the thousands of unpaid Class members on and for TheHuffingtonPost.com…[the site] would not have been an attractive merger target and would have sold for at least $105 million less than the merger price of $315 million."

HuffPost is referring to the class action lawsuit as "completely baseless."

Who do U side with? Team Bloggers or Team HuffPost?

John Mayer Blogs About The Maniston!

wenn29048772jm__opt.jpg

Oh, here we go…

John Mayer, arguably the douchiest of all of the douchebags, is none to pleased with a recent article that ran about his alleged reconciliation with the MANiston, and feels strongly enough about it to write a self-indulgant rant on the matter!

Huffington Post FULL OF SHIT? (Yes!)

Ahh, Huffington Post, the internet Death Star. The world’s first spectator banking website. Come watch a site’s intelligence move in and out like bellows of accordion depending on whether or not there’s ad dollars to be sucked out of any willing orifice.

From their front page item “BACK TOGETHER?”:

Are John Mayer and Jennifer Aniston back on? Mayer seemed to indicate they might be when he spoke in front of a crowd of 18,000 at his concert on Sunday at the Hollywood Bowl in LA.

“I believe in second chances!” he said. “You might have been a pain in the ass the last time around, but you can still start over again from home base. Next time you get a text from the one you love just text back ‘come over’ - no matter what happened in the past. If you really love someone, just tell them and be with them.”

Huffington Post, this is reporting? How do you pay your writers now, in Silly Bandz? Do you meet your sources in a malt shoppe? This is equal parts fabricated, cobbled together and misleading. Let’s break it down: I don’t think I ever said “I believe in second chances!” but I can’t be 100 percent sure, as it’s possible I could have accidentally said something succinctly and to the point. The next sentence is from the song “Half of My Heart,” in reference to the idea that meeting new people allows for hiding old mistakes. (Well, for most people at least.) The sentence about texting comes from the show’s encore, “Edge of Desire,” in a moment of giving people permission not to beat themselves down for still wanting someone. Two sentences about different things at different points in a concert.

The reason I’m calling you out instead of all the other magazines that make stories up out of thin air is that In Touch and Star Magazine aren’t concurrently writing pieces about Pat Tillman or WikiLeaks. Those other rags know who they are, and even if they’re obnoxious, I’d rather have to live with them because they (and the rest of the world) know where they stand, which doesn’t make them one tenth as dangerous as you are. You’re a stripper wearing reading glasses. Or maybe you’re an insolvent law student willing to dance for a few extra dollars. Either way, it’s uncomfortable to watch you try to wrap yourself around a pole when you have that C-Span scar.

I’m not a politician. I have no celebrity endorsements. So it is with a clear conscience that I’m able to title your piece on this post, should you decide to try make a few more bucks for whatever body wash or slasher flick you’re hocking today.

JOHN MAYER SLAMS HUFFPO: ” GO F**K YOURSELF!”

Can't you just hear the horrific sounds of him jerking himself off as he gloats over what he's written?

GUH. Enough, dumbass!

Thoughts??

Paulina Talks About Being A Hasbeen

wenn2585302_e.jpg

She sure is stuck on the past.

Former supermodel Paulina Porizkova, is taking to her column in the Huffington Post to complain about the troubles of being famous and how she can't get a job.

Paulina writes:

My career has an umbilical cord straight to my self-esteem. Too bad I have very little control over being desired or desirable. After I was the first to get kicked off Dancing with the Stars in 2007, and my book failed to sell all that much, and I couldn't get on The View no matter how much I begged, and I got fired from America's Next Top Model, I spent the rest of the year feeling a bit sorry for myself while knitting and shouting comments at morning TV shows.

To her credit Paulina says she isn't expecting any sympathy from her 7 readers, and she's definitely not getting any from us!

The now ex-ANTM judge goes on about slipping through the celebrity ranks, saying:

No one but aliens can stay on top forever. (I'm talking about you, Tom Cruise. And you, Madonna.) For the rest of the humans, the B-list is waiting! And that's the good news, because there is also a C-list and a D-list.

On the A-list you're a God and can do no wrong. Every observation you make is a treasure for posterity; every dandruff you flake is auctioned off on eBay. On the B-list your glow may have faded, but you're still invited to hot parties and designers still lend you their clothes. You still get interviewed on the red carpet and paparazzi are a pest. The C-list will get you into restaurants where a maître d' is roughly your age and hence remembers your moments of glory.

By the time you find yourself on the D-list, you've become invisible except when you really want to be, i.e. when you're stinking drunk and puking onto your shoes, or while beating up your spouse, or just scored some good sh*t to help you forget — from an undercover cop. The only place to go to now is a VH1 reality show, and if they won't have you, there is always Dr. Drew's rehab.

She does make some valid points.

So what does Paulina do now?

She ends her column with this little gem: "What are fallen celebrities to do if they're too vain to get fat and too paranoid to get strung out on drugs? Knit and yell at morning TV for starters. And blog for free."

At least she's honest!
