And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

A Kick-Ass R.E.M. Music Video

Who would have thought the nerdy kid behind the mask was actually a gorgeous 21 yr old by the name of Aaron Johnson.  You know him as "Kick-Ass," the nerdy Superhero from the movie of the same name.

R.E.M., on the verge of a major comeback, are set to release their first album in 3 years and have used Mr. Johnson to their advantage, along with his 50 year old fiancee as the director.  I have listened to the first single, "Ɯberlin," from their album, "Collapse Into Now" and it clearly reminds me of the R.E.M. we all know and love, it truly takes you back to the 1990's. 
I have posted the video under "The Spotlight" section on my blog, it's on the right hand side and will automatically start playing or it's on this post if you wish to watch it at a later time.

The only thing happening in the video is Aaron dancing through the entire song (something I have no problem with). While goofy at times, I actually enjoyed watching him, and the music was spectacular.  Take a look and tell me what you think.  Yay or Nay?  And as always, you can enlarge the pictures.

Who's Who on Superman: Man of Steele?

We already know who will be playing Superman (Henry Cavill), but who will be playing his worldly parents?

Zack Snyder, the director of Superman: Man of Steele, along with Warner Brothers announced yesterday, that Diane Lane (Unfaithful, Secretariat) would be playing Martha Kent, "the only mother Clark Kent has ever known," and “This was a very important piece of casting for me because Martha Kent is the woman whose values helped shape the man we know as Superman. We are thrilled to have Diane in the role because she can convey the wisdom and the wonder of a woman whose son has powers beyond her imagination.”

The Hollywood Reporter also writes that Kevin Costner is a "person of interest" for the role of Superman's father, Jonathan Kent.

Other well-known actors possibly joining the cast are Viggo Mortensen as General Zod and Lindsay Lohan as Ursa, but we all know what kinda mess Lindsay is in.  And besides, a rumor is just that, a rumor.  Until Warner Bros. or Zack Snyder come out and say who's playing who, I'll leave it at that.

OMG Hilarious! - Divorce


Britney Spears' new song,"till the world ends" was released this morning and considering that the song was co-written by Ke$ha (a sorry excuse for a musician), I'd have to give her an 8 for effort and a 10 for making it a sure club-hit.  While the song does remind me a little of Ke$ha's style, it is by far a million times better than "Hold It Against Me."  

Can I say that again?  It's a MILLION TIMES BETTER! 

The new song only has two verses and the rest is chorus, chorus, chorus.   

Okay, this is off subject but what I just wrote reminded me of a  part in the movie, "Trick" where Perry gives Gabriel advice on removing a verse from a song Gabriel had written...
Perry - Honey, get it out of there. Just go to the chorus. That's the fun part
Gabriel - But what about all the setup?
Perry - Gabriel!   Songwriters have been doing the verse-chorus thing forever.  It's tired.  Be                a maverick.  What's the function of a verse?  To kill time till we get to the chorus.                    During the verse, we wait. We are waiting for the chorus. Just give us what we want.            Chorus, chorus, chorus! 

And it's true, Britney has given you what you've wanted.  The question is... can Britney bring on the style and energy this song delivers and make it into an amazing live performance and awesome music video?

A Totally Awesome Born This Way Remix

Truly a magical gem, DJs from Mars has created a remix for the ages.  They took Amii Stewart's beats from the very popular 60's song, "Knock on Wood," and blended it with Lady Gaga's, "Born This Way."  

Who's knocking on who's door now?  Take that, and express your-f*king-self is what I have to say.
