Wall Street Journal Reviewer Is BANNED On Broadway After Admitting She Only Stays For Half Of The Shows!

Broadway reviewer is banned from shows after flaunting her indifference

This is pretty darn unprofessional, and frankly kind of despicable.

In a recent Wall Street Journal column titled Confessions of a Broadway Bolter, theatre reviewer Joanne Kaufman admitted that she typically only stays for half of a show… and then leaves! But she still reviews them anyway!!! She explains:

"I'm embarrassed by how unembarrassed I am to admit that the very next night, I took early leave of The Country House, and the following night of It's Only a Play."

And those are only a couple of plays that she names.

[ Relate: Perez Reviews: 'On The Town' ]

Well, the Broadway community is obviously — and rightly — outraged by this admission. So much so that theatrical press agent and president of O&M Co. Rick Miramontez wrote a scathing letter to the WSJ, which they predictably did not print.

But it didn't matter because people got ahold of it anyway.

Rick explained that Joanne won't be welcome at any show he represents anymore — and that's a LOT! He went on to ask pointed questions like:

Aretha Franklin Shades Taylor Swift & Nicki Minaj! See What She Said HERE!

no title

When you're Aretha Franklin, you never have to hold back what you think!

And she doesn't!

The singer sat down with the Wall Street Journal to talk about her new album, Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics, and during the 10 minute interview, she was asked what she thought about singers Adele, Alicia Keys, and Whitney Houston, and she had complimentary things to say.

But ask her about Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj, there was little R-E-S-P-E-C-T on a musical level!

It's possible that Aretha isn't a big fan of the ladies' music, but we didn't know she felt this un-strongly about them!

Daft Punk Can’t Keep Their Metallic Paws Off Gisele Bundchen On The Cover Of WSJ Magazine!

Gisele Bundchen and Daft Punk make a tremendous trio on the latest cover of WSJ magazine!

Looks like being up all night to get lucky has paid off in a HUGE way!

The revolutionary lads of Daft Punk got to pose with the highest paid model in the biz for the cover and spread of Wall Street Journal magazine’s latest issue, and they took full advantage of the opportunity!

Both Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter get up close and personal with Gisele Bundchen for the front of the mag, with one grabbing her shoulder and the other her thigh for photographer Terry Richardson. The electronic duo sparkles in their notorious headgear and Saint Laurent attire that's almost able to compete with Gisele’s sheer, navy blue jumpsuit. Almost.

For the spread, Gisele poses in a Valentino dress with two of Daft Punk’s sons before posing solo in a nude Lisa Marie Fernandez swimsuit, a Valentino Haute Couture dress, and a fluffy Giorgio Armani overcoat.

Ch-ch-check out the epic spread (below)!

David Beckham Dresses Down A Few Eras To Discuss His Future

Filed under: David BeckhamSoccerOlympics

David Beckham 60s chic

We didn't think it was possible for David Beckham to get any hotter in our book, but then we saw him rockin' this 60's chic look!

The Los Angeles Galaxy player posed with an old school pompadour for the Wall Street Journal Magazine to which he explains his latest fashion venture, his future in soccer, and the London riots.

Inspired by his wife's success in the fashion world, Beckham has branched out on his own and is working with H&M on an upcoming line of formfitting "body wear."

Much like his deal with Adidas, he's not just giving the clothing company the rights to use his name in advertisements — he's directly involved every step of the way. He explained to WSJ:

"I'm totally involved in everything that goes out there in stores,. I don't just sign with a company and give my name to do whatever they want. Everything that goes out there is something I would wear."

As for his athletic future, expect to see him playing soccer for a little while longer.

Despite growing a few more gray hairs on his head since his fourth child, Harper, was born, the 37-years-old is eager to join his English countrymen on the field during the 2012 summer Olympics, saying:

"I don't just want to be a coach or manager. I want to play."

The former Manchester United player wasn't thrilled to see the English youth rioting in the streets of London earlier this year either, as he groaned:

"We've got the Olympics next year and these pictures are being seen all around the world. It makes me feel physically sick."

The problem may be that kids today aren't respecting authority like other generations, as David elaborated:

"I think it's disgusting what's going on. The problem is, there is a minority of youth today in England who are not scared of authority. If they steal something, they are not worried about the consequences. When I was a kid growing up I respected elders, I respected the law. If I was on a bus and an elderly lady got on, I would stand up and let her sit down. That doesn't happen these days."

We wouldn't expect anything less from this English gent and perhaps he is living proof that chivalry is NOT dead!
