Filed under: Media MinuteKim Kardashian

no title

Nothing says highbrow like trashing another person just because she lives her life publicly.

NPR may be known for its serious take on everything, but being in charge of so much boring programming takes responsibility.

A responsibility to never let Kim Kardashian West on your airwaves.

Well, some radio purists are up in arms after Kimmy guest hosted Wait Wait…Don't Tell Me! and officially forced NPR over the shark and straight into the mainstream.

Ombudsman Elizabeth Jensen addressed the uproar on Wednesday, saying:

Filed under: Icky Icky PooSad SadBill Cosby

Bill Cosby has been accused of raping a number of women over the years.

Now that the allegations have resurfaced, a third woman has come out to accuse the comedian of sexually assaulting her.

What makes this all worse is the fact that Bill won't comment, address or deny any of these claims.

The 77-year-old recently went on NPR to discuss an exhibit he contributed to at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art…

The conversation regarding the recent allegations were definitely not on topic, but Scott Simon, the host of the show, told Bill he was doing his journalistic duty by asking him about it.

Later after their interview, the radio host talked about that particular experience with the comedian on CNN.

Scott said when he asked Bill the question about the rape accusations:

Can T-Pain Really Sing Without Auto-Tune? Watch Him Strip Down & BLOW The Audience Away With These Acoustic Performances!

Filed under: Music MinuteT-Pain

Mind = blown.

All these years, everyone thought T-Pain was using auto-tune to sound good, but he was actually using it to sound different than everyone else!

Remember when the R&B singer released I'm Sprung and basically auto-tuned the whole song?

Well, since then the Buy You A Drank singer has been widely known for his auto-tuning skillz and songz, NOT for his actual singing voice.

Everyone pretty much assumed he couldn't really sing.

So, T-Pain stripped down, vocally, and went on to NPR for their Music Tiny Desk Concert and well, he basically set all the rumors straight when he opened his mouth to sing.

Ch-ch-check out the mini concert he had (above)!

We knew she wrote Rihanna's hit Diamond in 15 minutes…

So the fact that Sia wrote and recorded her hit single Chandelier in an hour, isn't that surprising! She's a fantastic talent!

The AH-mazing single from the Aussie's new album 1000 Forms of Fear was really no biggie, as Sia explained to NPR in a recent interview:

Health Journal Says Romance Novels Encourage Unsafe Sex

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueSex

Romance novel pic

We love posting new health studies, but this one is REALLY reaching.

An essay published in the latest edition of the UK Journal of Family Planning & Reproductive Health is charging that romance novels are responsible for encouraging unsafe sex practices!

Comparing sex between characters in trashy romance novels and actual people, a relationship psychologist wrote in the essay:

"To be blunt, we like condoms — for protection and for contraception — and they don't. In one recent survey, only 11.5% of romantic novels studied mentioned condom use, and within these scenarios the heroine typically rejected the idea because she wanted 'no barrier' between her and the hero."

The author continues to point out that the literary genre could instead be spreading positive safe-sex messages, writing:

"In some Western countries, romance accounts for nearly half of all fiction bought; some fans read up to 30 titles a month, one book every two days. So while women's exposure to formal sex and relationships education (SRE) may be as little as a few hours in a lifetime, exposure to the brand of SRE offered in romantic novels may be as much as a day every week."

Uh-oh! We don't remember any prose in Breaking Dawn describing the Trojan that Edward slipped on before he consummated his eternal love with Bella! LOLz!

Does this mean an entire generation of Twi-Hards are going to give up on condoms? Ummm, we doubt it!

In fact, NPR has already pointed out several flaws in this psychologist's argument. The information is based off of only 78 books, all of which were were published between 1981 and 1996 before a widespread understanding of STDs hit the general public.

Sounds like the author of this essay shot off an argument a little prematurely, don't ya think? Ha!

Regardless, we believe it's up to the parents and schools to educate children about safe sex, not authors trying to make a buck off of their readers.

We'd say this argument is about as valid as saying all these vampire hotties frolicking around pop culture are encouraging people to develop a fetish for necrophilia.
