The Talk of Tinseltown
Doritos Dust + Disguises

Jennifer Lawrence ate some Doritos on the set of American Hustle. The loveable actress ended up with orange dust all over her curve-hugging white dress. Thankfully, the costume designer had a few extras. I can feel her pain. I've never been able to wear white without getting something on myself. And really, who doesn't love Doritos?

I'm sure you've all seen the news about Justin Bieber's recent arrest and legal woes. Over 100,000 people signed a petition asking the President to deport Bieber from the US. {He's from Canada.} The White House and President actually have to respond to any petition with over 100,000 signatures. Yes, he broke the law. Yes, he should be held accountable for his actions. Is this something we should be bothering our government with? No. No. No.

Speaking of Bieber, Miley Cyrus has some advice for him. She said, "You've got a lot of money. Pay people to make sure you don't get in trouble and party at your house." The girl makes a good point. If you're going to remain sober, drive your rich ass all over God's green earth. Otherwise, get a damn chauffeur.

When Lorde performed and accepted her Grammys the other night, people started ranting on Twitter. Some said she was weird and awkward. Others thought she couldn't possibly be 17. So a company paid for a copy of her birth certificate in order to prove that Lorde is indeed a teenager. Why can't people stop worrying about stuff like this? You either like her music or you don't. There's no need to tear her down simply because you aren't a fan.

Happy birthday to Justin Timberlake! He's 33 today.

The guys from Full House reunited this week on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. The skit was as hilarious and awesome as you'd expect it to be. You can watch it here.

Like Lorde, Daft Punk was also a big topic of discussion on Grammy night. Why are they wearing helmets? They're just so weird. So, let's clear this up. The guys in Daft Punk are electronic musicicans. They do not sing. They don't even perform in the typical sense. They have worn helmets and/or disguises of some sort for years. It's their thing.

Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, both 39, are French. Bangalter has said they don't believe in the "star system". They don't want to get recognized. He said their music is the most personal gift they can give. It's what matters most to them, and people think the robots are exciting and fun.

I have to agree. I think the helmets are cool. I appreciate their right to express themselves. How is this any different than Miley sticking her tongue out all the time? Maybe she should wear a helmet! Again, you're either a fan of their music or you're not. Don't hate on something just because it's different.

I love this! I hadn't seen the Jimmy Fallon skit yet but thats hilarious! I could barely contain myself through all the full house references!

I love Jennifer Lawrence and I love Doritos. No problem there.

Kelly @ turned UP to ELEVEN! said...

I don't trust people that don't love Doritos. And I also can't wear white and NOT make a mess of myself. Hence why I don't wear a lot of white.

I really wish that we could deport JB's ass, but it's really the least of our issues America. I mean really. But seriously can we just deport his bratty ass? I hate him and I HATE that young girls love him.

Truth - for ONCE Miley make sense. ALthough the last time he partied at his house didn't he egg the neighbor's home?

What does Lorde lying about her age have to do with how well she sings people? Seriously? I don't care if she's 80. People alway say performers are odd, I say if you are talking about them, they've done their job correctly. Unless your JB, can we just deport him already ;)

Aw, Happy Birthday JT!

Ugh, I love Bob [how is he NOT aging?] and that they did the whole Full House reunion for Jimmy. Awesome! (PS Uncle Jesse's mullet is back - sweet!)

I love that Daft Punk showed up with helmets it was awesome. I just wish they would have done an acceptance speech with robot voices. AND YES let's get Miley and Justin B a helmet!

I am in shock that Lorde is only 17, however I don't need to see her birth certificate. I guess haters are gonna hate! Happy Friday!

Whitney Alison said...

Bieber need to reevaluate his life when Miley becomes the voice of reason for him. Also, I wish people would leave Lorde alone. We were all weird and awkward as a teenager. Imagine how much more so you would be if you were a creative genius. I've loved Daft Punk for years. They are the shit. That is all. The helmets are just....the most :) Love ya!

Carly said...

LOL at Miley wearing a helmet! I thought it was so funny and by funny I kind of mean annoying, that people were so upset about the helmets when they've never shown their faces! Also I had no idea Lorde was only 17, but you're right whoooo cares??

Kelly said...

This post made me really happy, what a great take on celeb current events!

I might sign that petition. I'm so tired of seeing stories like his on the evening news. There are far more important issues facing us today.

I think Lorde has a beautiful voice! She was a bit spastic during her performance though. And I don't mean that in a mean girl kind of way either! I was just like, "Whoa...what is she doing?"

Karen M. Peterson said...

I love Lorde. I just thought her performance was really awkward at the Grammys, but it didn't make me like her any less. People need to stop hating.

Justin Bieber needs to go away, permanently!

Jimmy Fallon is always hilarious but we don't get him here in Aus on free to air tv.

As for musos like Daft Punk, that's their schtick and they're welcome to it.

And why people need to pick apart people like Lorde I think it's because they cannot wrap their tiny minds around the fact some people are brilliantly creative, unlike themselves. They're jealous and shitty and would rather tear someone down than be happy.

I love the story about JLaw and the Doritos. As if we needed another reason to love her:)

And I love pop culture just as much as the next person, but MAN. People need to care less about the Biebs. Or Lorde's birth certificate.

Miley is smart! I heard she said she doesn't go to the movies on a date because she has a huge TV and a chef. I wouldn't leave the house either! Haha. Bieber is stupid, but that petition is even more stupid. What is wrong with Americans? Poor Lorde. She's incredibly talented and super weird, but I love her. The birth certificate thing is ridiculous! You know my feelings on Daft Punk. Love them!

Is Lorde Madonna's daughter? #SlowPartyOfOne
