Apparently something really, really bad. Just see Madonna‘s reaction to someone handing her a bouquet of hydrangeas at the Venice Film Festival, where she was promoting her period piece W.E. After receiving the apparently dreadful (who knew?) arrangement, Madonna gave a Liz Lemon-quality over-the-top eye roll, hid the flowers, and alerted the person next to her, “I absolutely loathe hydrangeas.” She added about the petal-peddler, “He obviously doesn’t know that.” Well, congrats, Madge, because now the whole world does! It’s a pretty safe bet no matter what her reasoning is behind her hatred of hydrangeas, she’s going to receive a lot more of them now. Watch the full instantly viral clip below: READ FULL STORY

As many as 40 people were killed by Mother Nature and in accidents related to Hurricane Irene, and more than 8 million lost power during the storm that flooded areas of the East Coast, but there was nevertheless a great sigh of relief that the damage wasn’t as massive as initially feared. Rush Limbaugh, however, thinks that President Obama is disappointed that Irene didn’t cause more havoc. On Monday’s radio show, the conservative pundit lambasted the media for inflating the threat of the storm — a reasonably fair criticism with the benefit of hindsight — but he went on to accuse the president of craven opportunism. “I’ll guarantee you Obama was hoping this was going to be a disaster as another excuse for his failing economy,” he said. “If he’s out there blaming tsunamis, if he’s blaming earthquakes, and whatever natural disasters there are, this one was made to order, but it just didn’t measure up.” MediaMatters has the short clip below: READ FULL STORY
One Day could very well turn out to be the most distracting movie of 2011. Either you couldn’t get attached because you’d read the book and knew the shocking, twist ending that was coming or you didn’t know and were so blindsided you had a hard time enjoying the rest of the film. But, there’s been an even bigger diversion that’s kept people for falling for the weepy, big-screen adaptation of David Nicholls’ best-selling novel: Anne Hathaway’s shaky British accent.
The folks over at LIFE would have to agree. In their list of “The Worst Accents in Movie History” they argue that Hathaway’s Emma is supposed to hail from Leeds, but the actress seemed to have picked up a whole bunch of regional dialects and compiled them into one super-distracting allegedly British accent. Of course, she’s hardly the only star to miss the mark completely when it comes to speaking in a foreign tongue. READ FULL STORY
I apologize in advance that this post will not feature a video of Deen and Bourdain wrestling to the death in a big-ass vat of butter. Nope, all that happened is that Anthony Bourdain called Paula Deen “the worst, most dangerous person in America … plus, her food sucks” in an interview for TV Guide. The No Reservations star also slammed Deen’s fellow Food Network chefs Rachael Ray (“Does she even cook anymore?”), Sandra Lee (“I hate her works on this planet, but she is not someone to be dismissed, clearly.”), and Guy Fieri (“I look at Guy and I just think, ‘Jesus, I’m glad that’s not me’”).
First of all, can we just revel for a second in “I hate her works on this planet?” Thank you. Seriously, who knows how many other galaxies Sandra Lee is ‘botting out on right now.
Deen has fired back with a viscous stream of cholesterol and words! READ FULL STORY
In today’s edition of grumpy older men, Piers Morgan and Keith Olbermann are trading jabs over… well, everything at this point.
To be fair, Olberman poked the bear yesterday when he tweeted a snide remark referencing Christine O’Donnell’s recent walk-out on Morgan’s show: “Who walks out on @PiersMorgan tonight? I’m betting on…the audience (as usual).” READ FULL STORY
Another day, another comedian in hot water.
Anti-gay comments made last week by Adam Carolla on his Podcast, “The Adam Carolla Show,” prompted GLAAD to speak out against the radio host today in a release that accuses him of “gross intolerance.”
The organization reports on the incident in a press release, writing: “In his rant, he also told LGBT people to ‘shut up’ because they are ‘ruining his life’ by speaking out about equality. He went on to say that members of the LGBT community should stop using the letters ‘LGBT’ to describe themselves, and should instead use ‘YUCK.’ Regarding transgender people, Carolla at one point asked: ‘When did we start giving a sh–t about these people?’”
Carolla told EW via his rep, “I’m sorry my comments were hurtful. I’m a comedian, not a politician.” READ FULL STORY
