Robert Pattinson ‘Good Time’ Blasted in Its Own Backyard, Despite Raves

Robert Pattinson and is movie “Good Time” is getting rave reviews almost every where, except where it counts–in the film’s own backyard. The lofty New York Times is slamming the picture as “stale ugly, cold” and racist. Oh my! The plot unfolds over the course of one night capturing the frenetic pace of Connie’s slap-dash efforts to pull enough strings to spring brother Nick, played by Benny Safdie who directs the film with his brother Josh Safdie. ...

Lana Del Rey New Single, Honeymoon, Out; Covers Rolling Stone (listen!)

Lana Del Rey, the moody, much derided singer, has gone from her disastrous “Saturday Night Live” debut to the cover of Rolling Stone, which has proclaimed her “Rock’s Saddest, Baddest Diva.” It was a long-time coming. Although landing on the music magazine’s cover doesn’t mean as much as it used to, it’s still a signal that an artist has arrived. Oddly, it wasn’t something she was looking comfortable with....

Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez Used in Heated College Football Recruiting

Kim Kardashian and Selena Gomez have become tools in a top university’s efforts to attract elite high school football players, a sign that some say is symbolic of college recruiting wars that have gotten out of control. Wake Forest University’s athletic programs mocked up covers of People magazine featuring the celebrities with potential college recruits. The University of Tennessee , a perennial college football powerhouse, used the same tactic to woo prospective recruit Shy Tuttle, one of the nation’s top high school defensive tackles. He's featured with Beyonce on a fake Rolling Stone cover. ...

Christina Aguilera Flaunts Blonde Bombshell Makeover (photos!)

Christina Aguilera, chided for stuffing too much into too little dresses on “The Voice,” has undergone a startling makeover. She shows it off in the new issue of Maxim magazine. The blonde bombshell is definitely down to fighting weight. Aguilera unveiled her sexy alter-ego Xtina way back in 2007 following in the footsteps of Madonna and fellow Disney teen star Britney Spears. She dyed her hair, got a tattoo of the nickname on her neck, a bunch of (ahem) strategically placed piercings....

Miley Cyrus MTV VMA Critics Overwrought, Humorless, Prudish

Miley Cyrus’s shocking–shocking!–performance on the MTV Video Music Awards is still burning up the Internet as critics wag their fingers and scold her for her risque performance with Robin Thicke. What would Hannah Montana say? But the truth is, she’s no longer Hannah Montana and MTV isn’t the Disney Channel. Her squeaky clean show ended in 2010, nearly three years ago. And, guess what?

Stephen Stills on Mitt Romney: He's a Churlish Little Prick

Iconic singer Stephen Stills does more to put the presidential campaign into perspective than any political pundit on the endless cable news network talk shows. Republican candidate Mitt Romney, he says, “a churlish little prick.” Unlike President Obama, Mitt Romney has been inside the bubble all his life. He has no idea what’s going on here,” Stills writes in the current issue of Rolling Stone magazine. “Right now, the Dow is at 13,000. It was below 8,000 when the president took office. Job growth is rising. Unemployment is dropping. We desperately need to stay the course with this president,” he adds....
