The hosts of Fox & Friends bucked their own network’s history by spending almost a minute-and-a-half being nice about former First Lady Michelle Obama‘s surprise appearance at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards. On Monday morning’s episode of Curvy Couch Theatre, co-host Steve Doocy noted that “Last night, they had the big Grammy awards, and there was a surprise toward the beginning of the show. Yes indeed, that is former First Lady Michelle Obama.” The show then played some clips from Mrs. Obama’s guest appearance, after which co-host Brian Kilmeade praised the former first lady. “Michelle Obama got huge applause, they had to stop the whole night, you know, for like 15-20 seconds you couldn’t even go through it, which is a tribute to her,” Kilmeade said. “Her book is also number one, leaving a lot of people including the Drudge Report today, the lead story, is she getting set Continue reading "Fox & Friends Spends 78 Solid Seconds Complimenting Michelle Obama"

Remember when Disney released photos of their live-action ‘Aladdin’ remake with actor Will Smith as a Genie, and fans hated that he wasn’t blue? And remember how Smith reassured fans that he was, in fact, going to be blue in the final movie? Well, they hadn’t seen Smith as a blue Genie until a Sunday night Grammys commercial… and the internet is going bonkers. “You really don’t know who I am? Genie, wishes, lamp… none of that ringing a bell?” says a portly, blue Smith, who looks like a nightmarish Smurf. Twitter didn’t hesitate to drag Smith’s character all the way to Agrabah, reactions spanning from laughs and mockery to sheer horror.

Hollywood singer Joy Villa, known lately for her pro-Trump appearances at the Grammy Awards each year, did it again this year with a twist: she wore a barbed wire “Trump wall” to the red carpet in support of border security and legal immigration. “This is the wall,” said Villa, holding a red “Make America Great Again” purse and pointing to her silver steel-colored dress. “I believe in building a wall to protect our southern border, not to keep people out but to protect citizens of our country.” Villa said she supports President Donald Trump‘s views on immigration, which she believes are often wrongly associated with racism and xenophobia. “I’m part-Latina, I’m black,” she added, saying the dress was her way of Continue reading "Pro-Trump Singer Joy Villa Arrives at Grammys With Barbed Wire ‘Build The Wall’ Dress"

James Corden Ridicules ‘Second Favorite Child’ Don Jr: ‘At Least You’re Not Tiffany’

James Corden is brushing off the Trumpworld outrage over the political moments that took place while he hosted the Grammys over the weekend. The MAGAverse recently went nuts over the anti-President Trump political lean of the Sunday night musical festivities. The part that really got Trump supporters angry was the sketch where several celebrities, including Hillary Clinton, auditioned to become the audiobook reader for Michael Wolff‘s controversial White House exposé, Fire and Fury. Corden took a brutal swing at Donald Trump Jr. as he talked about the Grammys with The Late Late Show last night, after the president’s son went on a Twitter rampage over the show. “You gotta give him credit,” Corden said. “If anyone knows about consolation prizes, it’s Donald Trump’s second favorite child. At least you’re not Tiffany.” Nikki Haley also took umbrage with the show. She has slammed Wolff’s book for Continue reading "James Corden Ridicules ‘Second Favorite Child’ Don Jr: ‘At Least You’re Not Tiffany’"

Don’t Make Hillary Clinton A Hero of the #TimesUp Award Season


This post is by Joseph A. Wulfsohn from Mediaite

For over two years now, award shows have largely become a platform for mocking Donald Trump. However, this award season has been different than in previous years, particularly because of the #MeToo movement that has rocked Hollywood (as well as media, politics, and virtually every industry). Since the downfall of Harvey Weinstein, the victims of harassment and assault have felt empowered to speak out against their alleged predators and has caused a domino effect of powerful men being taken down for behaviors that have been going on for decades. Leading up to the Golden Globes, Hollywood formed a sister movement called #TimesUp, which was meant to tackle sexual harassment and abuse as well as things like the gender pay gap in the workplace. And already we’ve seen it make waves in entertainment. After James Franco wore a #TimesUp pin at the Golden Globes, he was called out for alleged misconduct Continue reading "Don’t Make Hillary Clinton A Hero of the #TimesUp Award Season"

Ex-Clinton Adviser Defends Hillary’s Grammys Appearance: She Has More Class Than Trump Does

On Fox News’ The Story tonight, former Hillary Clinton adviser Philippe Reines defended the former presidential candidate’s surprise Grammys appearance roasting President Trump. Martha MacCallum first pressed Reines over the scandal concerning a 2008 Clinton campaign adviser who was kept on after being accused of sexual harassment. But then she brought up that surprise Clinton cameo last night reading Fire and Fury, asking why the Grammys had to have such an overtly political moment. “This was a joke, this was funny,” Reines said. “I think Nikki Haley overreacted, Don Jr. –– as is his wont –– overreacted. I think everyone needs to grant a sense of humor… Reading a book is not politicizing.” Haley’s objections to the book’s elevation in particular clearly have merit, given the gross gossip-mongering surrounding the book she’s already had to respond to. MacCallum said this is about being a “classy person” and not Continue reading "Ex-Clinton Adviser Defends Hillary’s Grammys Appearance: She Has More Class Than Trump Does"

Stuart Varney Blames Drop in Grammys Ratings on ‘Anti-Trump Diatribe’

The ratings are in for this year’s Grammy Awards ceremony and, as The Hollywood Reporter noted, they are down 21 percent from 2017. That’s a pretty steep drop. Stuart Varney, savior of the common man in our endless battle against the elites, thinks he knows why the ratings were lackluster in comparison to previous years. It was all that trashing of President Donald Trump. “I think this has a lot do with the opening of the show, which was just an anti-Trump diatribe,” he said. “Why is it that the cultural elites detest the man?” Varney went on to say that all of this Trump bashing “is not doing the country any good.” Of course, it must be noted that there wasn’t actually that much bashing of the president during the ceremony. It aired on CBS, a notoriously cautious network, given their demographic. The “Fire and Fury” bit, Continue reading "Stuart Varney Blames Drop in Grammys Ratings on ‘Anti-Trump Diatribe’"

While discussing her father-in-law on Fox Business Network this morning, Lara Trump also sounded off on the big political moment of last night’s Grammys. A number of artists read passages from Fire and Fury in a James Corden-led skit, and the bit ended with none other than Hillary Clinton reading from it too. Trump said on Mornings With Maria today she stopped watching these awards shows “a long time ago for this exact reason.” “I thought it was despicable,” she continued, “disgusting, and quite frankly sad that Hillary Clinton obviously needs to validate herself in some way.” Trump also suggested later in the segment that if Clinton wants to read Continue reading "Lara Trump Blasts Hillary’s Grammys Appearance as ‘Despicable’: ‘Read Us Her 30,000 Missing Emails’"

Fox & Friends Did Not Like Hillary’s Grammys Appearance: Should Have Read From ‘Clinton Cash’

The hosts of Fox & Friends reacted to Sunday night’s Grammys with disdain, bashing the award show for its bevy of “millionaires who are complaining,” and for featuring Hillary Clinton reading from Michael Wolff’s controversial tell-all. Clinton made a surprise appearance in a video skit at the James Corden-hosted event, reading a passage on President Donald Trump’s eating habits from Wolff’s Fire and Fury. Safe to say, Fox & Friends was not amused. After noting some of the social media reaction to the skit — U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley tweeted “Don’t ruin great music with trash,” and armchair pundit Donald Trump Jr. mocked Clinton for losing the election to his dad — host Ainsley Earhardt went on a tear against the politicized awards show. After agreeing with Haley’s sentiment, Earhardt said: “Every time there was something political I just rolled my eyes. Everyone know what Hollywood thinks, it’s Continue reading "Fox & Friends Did Not Like Hillary’s Grammys Appearance: Should Have Read From ‘Clinton Cash’"

After politics took center stage at this year’s Grammy Awards by way of Hillary Clinton doing a “spoken word” reading of Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley was not impressed with the mix of “great music with trash.” “I have always loved the Grammys but to have artists read the Fire and Fury book killed it. Don’t ruin great music with trash. Some of us love music without the politics thrown in it,” tweeted Haley immediately after the Clinton segment. She also tweeted that the Fire and Fury gag completely “ruined the Grammys.” “Such a shame,” added Haley.

Country music stars The Brothers Osborne, Eric Church, and Maren Morris performed a powerful tribute at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards dedicated to all the victims of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting. Their song of choice was rock legend Eric Clapton’s Tears in Heaven, which features the lyrics:
“Beyond the door there’s peace I’m sure / And I know there’ll be no more tears in heaven. Would you know my name / If I saw you in heaven? Would it be the same / If I saw you in heaven? I must be strong and carry on.”
The shooting, which resulted in the death of 58 people and the wounding of 851 others, occurred on October 1, 2017 at a country music festival. Morris said their performance was meant “to honor those who lost, we wanted to come together and honor the memory of the music souls so suddenly Continue reading "WATCH: Country Music Stars Dedicate Touching Grammys Performance to Vegas Shooting Victims"

Dave Chapelle Interrupts Kendrick Lamar’s Grammy Performance With Joke About Race in America

Kendrick Lamar opened this year’s Grammys on a pseudo-political note. Lamar performed a medley of his songs accompanied by dancers in camouflage and hoodies, as a giant American flag swayed behind him. After a few minutes, he turned around to a screen that read, one word appearing onscreen at a time, “This is a satire by Kendrick Lamar.” He was joined onstage by Bono and The Edge of U2, who helped Lamar perform a musical interlude. That’s when comedian Dave Chapelle showed up and laid some truth on the audience. The lights went out and Chapelle sowed up, alone, onstage and introduced himself, segueing into a quick joke on race relations in America. “Hi. I’m Dave Chapelle,” he said. “I just wanted to remind the audience that the only thing more frightening than watching a black man being honest in America, is being an honest black man in America.

The singer who experienced her 15 minutes of fame last year by hitting the red carpet in a pro-Trump outfit appears to be trying to extend her time under the spotlight, as Joy Villa arrived at the 60th Grammy Awards in an anti-abortion dress. Villa’s get-up included a stark white dress with a fetus surrounded by a rainbow painted on it. Additionally, she carried along a white handbag with the words “CHOOSE LIFE” blasted across it — just in case anyone was still unaware of her opinion on abortion.

She also took home the awards for Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year, among others. During her last acceptance speech, for Album of the Year, she stopped to thank Beyoncé who was nominated in the category. “My artist of my life is Beyoncé,” she said. “And this album for me, the Lemonade album is just so monumental, Beyoncé. It was so monumental and so well thought out and so beautiful and soul-bearing and we all got to see another side of you that you don’t always let us see and we appreciate that… You are our light.” Adele continued, “And the way that you make me and my friends feel, and the Continue reading "‘You Are Our Light’: Adele Praises Beyoncé During Album of the Year Acceptance Speech"

GagaBowieAt the Grammys Monday night, Lady Gaga performed a tribute to the late David Bowie, condensing the icon’s five-decade career into a seven-minute mashup that was as much an homage to Bowie’s legendary music as it was to his capacity for reinvention and transformation.
With admirable verve, the performer sang and danced her way, in quick succession, through “Space Oddity,” “Changes,” “Ziggy Stardust,” “Suffragette City,” “Rebel Rebel,” “Fashion,” “Fame,” (a few bars of) “Under Pressure,” “Let’s Dance,” and “Heroes.” Check it out above.
