Already, The Golden Globes has a controversy on it’s hands… on the red carpet, Elton John took a swipe at Madonna. (And if you read on, you’ll see how she got the last laugh!)

Before the ceremony, pre-show host Carson Daly was live on the red carpet interviewing Elton John about his Original song nomination for “Hello Hello” — a collaboration with Lady Gaga and lyricist Bernie Taupin for the film “Gnomeo & Juliet.”

When asked about the field of nominees, John addressed his competitors, acknowledging his belief that singer/writer Mary J. Blige would take the award for “Living Proof,” which she and others wrote for the film “The Help.”

He then went on to address Madonna’s nomation for her work on “Masterpiece” which she co-wrote for the film she directed, “W.E.”

In addressing Madonna’s chances, John said, “Madonna hasn’t got a f—in’ chance.” (the audio of which was dropped thanks to a tape delay… someone in the control room was on top of it!)

Daly responded to Elton’s snipe by saying “Those are fighting words!” to which John replied, “no, those are accurate words.” Snap!!

It wasn’t long into the pre-show program that Daly then got to speak with Madonna on the red carpet. Daly was able to retell the ‘she hasn’t got a f’—ing chance’ portion of the John’s interview, to which Madonna coincidentally replied the same was Daly had – ‘those are fighting words!’ When Daly futhered the conversation with Elton’s response of ‘those are accurate words,’ Madonna took the high road with “Well, may the best man win.”

UPDATE: Madonna got the last laugh!!! She DID win the award, even though she wasn’t the favorite. She didn’t address the red carpet moment during her acceptance speech. She appeared surprised and graciously gave thanks to her colleagues.

Elton John, whom as we mentioned earlier performed his nominated song with Lady Gaga, may be somewhat defensive over over Madonna’s recent remarks about Gaga’s music. In a recent interview with ABC, Madonna described Gaga’s “Born this Way” as ”reductive.” (essentially calling it a crude and simplified version of her own “Express Yourself.”) It’s my guess John, not one to mince words, (and a friend of Gaga’s) didn’t think too highly of Madonna’s remarks and decided to take a swipe of his own.

Truthfully, cattiness aside, Madonna’s song was not in fact a favorite to win the award. But she DID. As they say, success is the best revenge.

Wendy Williams Opens Up: “I Have Been Living In A Sober House.”

Published

on

The talk show host, who has been very supportive of both me personally and this website, bravely opened up to viewers today about her struggle with addiction. I wish her strength and applaud her courage.

She said she wanted to be honest with her viewers. “There are people in your family, it might be you, you have been struggling, and I want you to know more of the story… So, this is my autobiographical story, and I’m living it. I’m telling you this.”

“For some time now, and even today and beyond, I have been living in a sober house. … And you know, I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in my past and I never went to a place to get the treatment. I don’t know how, except God was sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped.”

She says that now, after the show she attends meetings around the tri state area and then is driven to a sober house. She then shared details of the facility and a group of guys she shares the common areas with: “They hog the TV and watch soccer, we talk and read and talk and read and then I get bored with them. Doors locked by 10 p.m. Lights out by 10 p.m.. So I go to my room, and I stare at the ceiling and I fall asleep to wake up and come back here to see you. So that is my truth.”

“I know, either you are calling me crazy or the bravest woman you know,” she continued. “I don’t care.”

Williams’ Hunter Foundation has already placed 56 people into facilities world wide since she announced a substance abuse hotline little more than a week ago.

It took a lot of bravery to stand before her audience and the world to share her truth. I personally admire her so much for taking this pivotal step, and opening up to her viewers.

We wish you the best, Wendy!

BUZZ: Is There A ‘Drake And Josh’ Reboot In The Works?!

Published

Well, hug me brotha! Drake Bell hinted at a Drake And Josh reboot!

If you grew up in the early 2000’s, then you remember watching a pair of goofy yet lovable step-brothers cause all sorts of trouble while having your after school snack. Shout out to the Little Debbie Cosmic Brownie! I digress. Drake And Josh was a hit sitcom that ran from 2004-2007 on Nickelodeon and fans have been hoping for a reboot for years.

Well, when Drake Bell walked down the red carpet at the iHeart Radio Awards, People asked about his latest project and he hinted at the highly anticipated reboot.

“We’re working on something. I’m excited. I think we have a great idea. [The reboot] is going to be way more creative, way cooler than just you know the college years or something like that. We knew that if we were ever going to come back, it’s got to be something cool. I’m excited to see what the fans think.”

Drake went on to praise his co-star, Josh Peck, for his “amazing comedic wit and incredible timing” and says the two still “click.” Which is good to hear since that whole wedding debacle. What wedding debacle you ask? Well in June 2017, Josh got married and much to everyone’s surprise Drake was not invited to the soirée. Many a fan thought the best friends had disbanded but despite a few bitter barbs on Twitter, it seems as though the besties are their best ever. No word on when we can expect the reboot but sometimes hope is enough to hold you over.

OMGTL: Pauly D And Vinny Are Looking For Love On A Brand New Dating Show

Published

on

Why have a rose ceremony, when you can have a “bros” ceremony?!

Two of America’s favorite best friends and bachelors are turning to reality tv to help them find love. That’s right, Pauly D and Vinny Guadagnino from MTV’s The Jersey Shore are tired of the single life and are ready to find their one true loves. Although finding someone they will love more than one another might prove to be tricky…

A Double Shot At Love will feature the two Jersey boys living in a mansion together with 20 women, all vying for a chance to fist bump their way to the altar. Can’t you just smell the tanning-lotion coated drama already?! While both bachelors have had pretty significant relationships in their lives (Pauly D even has a child from a previous relationship) they both are looking to settle down and find Mrs. Right. And who better to help with that than your bestie?

The entire premise reminds me of the VH1 reality-dating show golden years with hits such as Flavor Of LoveRock Of Love and I Love New York. And if you ask me, television has been absolutely dull since we were last blessed with those shows.

The new series premieres on Jerzday, April 11th on MTV. Click below to see the official, and funny, promo.
