Celebrities Destined Never To Wed

JEN ANISTON/JOHN MAYER

Ya know, the more I think about it the more I think they are an ideal match. Come on — let’s analyze here for a minute. Both have been around the Hollywood block and back, many – o – times and have yet to keep a relationship that’s lasted. I think John is less likely to ever get married solely his doing; he is too self absorbed and childish to move out of his own way. JAniston would marry her LA car driver if he were to pop the question at this point, but for some reason the chick is nuts as I’ve blogged about years ago.

JOHN STAMOS

While I think John is personally one of the top 5 most attractive men in Hollywood?  I think he just prefers to maintain his “I look 30 and I’m uber bronzed and still getting TV gigs so I will continue to dirty text girls born in 1988 or later”. Hey, whatever floats your boat John — I will just chime in, if you happen to read this message me– well exchange BBMs. I have no shame.

CHARLIE SHEEN

This one goes without saying. Come to think of it — I don’t think I could think of one human alive less inept to get married than Mr. Sheen. He is not only a narcissistic, raging alcoholic drug addict? But he’s scary and threatens the lives of all women that enter his sick and perverted world of hookers, coke and many many suites under fake names.

LINDSAY LOHAN

If she ever happens to stop abusing drugs, pain killers, cocaine and pot maybe she will be able to then figure out which gender/ sex she prefers? I think she is a train wreck headed for the deep end of the Hollywood cliffs. I will say her relationship with Sam Ronson made me more sad for her than the drug addictions — she just really has no idea who she is. Maybe if she’s around to see the age of 30 she will realize that Hollywood just isn’t where she should be. Perhaps find a burn out like herself and settle dog, maybe buy a Boxer?


CAMERON DIAZ

I love her I think she’s hot, in shape and wildly independent. What I don’t necessarily understand about her, however, is why she always chooses the over steroidal athletes who will be willing to ditch her for the next young thing that falls in their lap at the strip club. I think she should take some pointers from other actresses who pick less well-known, more “I enjoy nights in watching Seinfeld and drinking 2 Buck Chuck”.

GEORGE CLOONEY

I will conclude with Clooney — oh I like how that sounds. I mean he clearly took an anti aging pill at 24 and it has been wildly successful for him ever since. He is unable to age and if anything looks better as he gets older. But I think he has a lot of momma issues if you will and will never be content with any one woman — no matter how hot  they make look on the back on his Vespa in Florence.




Songs That Have Shaped My Life

In Uncategorized on April 7, 2010 at 2:42 pm

Okay, that may be an extremely STRONG/SENTIMENTAL/MUSHY title for this post but I am in a mushy mood — I am done college in less than 25 days and it is hitting me pretty hard. I didn’t realize how fast it would all come to an end.

I thought I would do something a little out of character for me, I wanted to run through some of the songs that have stuck with me throughout my life and why they mean a lot to me. Music has a way of truly affecting you — whether it be in a positive or negative way. I know the second I listen to certain songs what emotions will be evoked. I love every minute of it.

  • Home Life — John Mayer (Heavier Things) — This song just embodies so much that I feel and how I see my life. The lyrics that have stuck with me over the years are, “See, I refuse to believe that my life’s gonna be just some string of incompletes never to led me to anything remotely close to my home life”
  • Another Again — John Legend (Once Again)– John Legend is my idol, however, something about this particular song gives me chills. It is beautiful, touching, and extremely relatable

  • Tears in Heaven — Eric Clapton (Eric Clapton Unplugged)– This song bears heavy weight with me, my Uncle Terry passed away and this song was on my IPod, it will forever remind me of Ter — the lyrics couldn’t be more fitting either, heart wrenching song
  • Drops of Jupiter — Train (Drops of Jupiter)– It’s easy to love this song, it just is a favorite of mine for no particular reason. I have loved this song since it was released and most likely will continue to for years to come
  • Don’t Let It Bring You Down — Annie Lenox (Medusa)– Another very heavy hitting song for me — I grew up to this album, Medusa by Annie Lenox. Other songs of hers are also favorites such as “Another Shade of Pale” — she is a wonderful musician/singer who I spent my childhood listening to

  • Dirty Diana — Michael Jackson– I had to pick just one MJ song which took time to do seeing as that I pretty much love 30 of his top hits. I danced for the majority of my childhood / teen years and this song had just such energy and passion — you literally could NOT not dance to this song
  • I’m The Only One– Melissa Etheridge (Yes I am)– Another singer who I grew up with was Melissa Etheridge — she’s a plugger, a survivor and you can hear it in her passionate music. I love so many of her songs, they make me feel empowered on a daily basis.

  • The Miseducation of Lauryn HIll — Lauryn Hill– While L.HIll maybe crazy, certifiably crazy, she is an extraordinary singer/performer. She was such an inspiration to me growing up (cough still even though I have made it my mission to locate the now M.I.A. singer)
  • Plane– Jason Mraz (Mr. A-Z)– I guess you could say Jason Mraz is my singer. I have loved listening to since he began performing for $5.00 dollars at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park (When Maroon 5 opened for him, no joke) I’d say circa 2001? 2002? He is my favorite singer, while he has sold out lately, he still makes me warm and happy inside. Plane is a powerful, unbelievable song that will forever be a favorite of mine.

  • Piste 9– Feist (Let it Die)– Who doesn’t love Feist? Her music is angelic almost, its etherial and I love to play it to relax me and alleviate all of the cares in the world, thank you Feist for being my anti – anxiety medication on a daily basis
  • You Might Die Trying — DMB (Stand Up)– The first few lyrics of this song happened to be my high school quote under my senior picture and to this day I still truly abide by the lines, which go, “To change the world you start with one step, no matter how small, the first step is hardest of all”


My Extreme Love and Hate for John Mayer (Part Deux)

In Uncategorized on February 15, 2010 at 7:23 pm

I cannot emphasize just how much I despise John Mayer in many forms of his existence. But here is the catch — I have loved all albums he has put out since I was in 7th grade… I am now graduating from college. That’s saying something. There have been PLENTY of musicians that have come and go on my IPod and in my heart but John’s lyrics and songs capture me. I feel I can relate to so many of his lyrics. But this is where the conflict arises in my head…

How is a musician who produces such lyrical and meaningful songs SUCH a womanizing, trash talking, psychological liar in real life? It makes no sense to me. Do I stop buying his music because he kisses and tells? Or do I continue to endorse him in his musical endeavors, while trying my best to forget about his personal existence? That’s where the conflict lies in my eyes.

1) I don’t like his inability to shut his mouth in the Social Networking Universe — it is NOT necessary you Twitter about your bowel movements, masturbation, and how great of a lay you are

2) Find a great psychologist and sex therapist, and book yourself some appointments — after the recent stunts in Playboy Magazine, I wouldn’t be surprised if others gave you the same goddamn advice, you not only used the “n” word in a derogatory manner, but you also once again exploited Jessica Simpson and your situation between the sheets — grow up and get help


3) You have officially taken over the title of the “Biggest Womanizer in the Music Industry” — congrats John, really. I’m sure you’re extremely proud of yourself. Here’s the thing — If I were a celebrity female, and you tried approaching me I would VEER clear. Once a womanizer, always a womanizer in my eyes. These girls don’t seem to mind, but I certainly would.

So there’s my advice for the “oh so lovely” Mayer. The thing is, I will still continue to support him in his musical profession, I presume I just won’t be taking his Blackberry Pin if I ever happen to run into him at a bar ANY TIME in the near future. My final comment will be as follows: He needs a tune up.

Jen Aniston and Her Many… Many… Men

In Uncategorized on August 30, 2009 at 10:28 pm

Here’s what I don’t understand….. while skimming through the latest magazines in 7-11 I came across the new ELLE cover with Jennifer Aniston on the cover. How is it possible she’s become even HOTTER with age? The woman is BANGIN’ to say the least. I would do her. That’s besides the point… here’s what I did MEAN to discuss:

WHY IN THE WORLD IS SHE STILL SINGLE?!? She is somewhat of an enigma if you ask me……

jennifer-aniston-elle-magazine-cover-photo-september-2009

I will recap her past flames and give you my insight into what “possibly had happened” and who she should be persuading to take her back.

I will start with THE BEST relationship Jen was ever in, “THE BEAUTIFUL COUPLE — BRAD AND JEN”

070906_brad

A) How unfair is it that they are both equally as attractive? SICKENING.

B) Their hair color even coordinated. Come on, it’s fate!

C) They would have had probably the most adorable children ….. ever.

D) Unlike Angie, Jen doesn’t dig blood around her neck.

Now onto the WORST relationship Jen found herself in: “THE OF COURSE IT WAS GOING TO END… IT’S JOHN MAYER, JOHN & JEN RELATIONSHIP”

JenAnistonJohnMayer456

It doesn’t really need to be explained just how skanky and man-whorish John Mayer is. While I adore his music and buy his albums, his habit of “kissing and telling” is just way below the belt. I’m sorry I really don’t want to envision you orgasming when you make the most disgusting facial expressions when SINGING… let alone in the bedroom. Get of out here JM, really. Jen should’ve listened to her friends who told her ABORT MISSION from the beginning.

The we have the, “THIS IS THE… WELL, IT’S CONVENIENT AND WERE BOTH FAMOUS RELATIONSHIP– VINCE AND JEN”

jennifer-aniston-vince-vaughn-french-open-tennis

Clearly this wasn’t what her horoscope told her to do. He’s tall, somewhat gawkish, and clearly was not into Jen. I see the attraction to Vince somewhat… he’s funny yes. I would like to chug a few beers with him then hit the billiard pool, but not date him. But hey, that’s me. Regardless, once filming for whatever flop movie they were in together wrapped — they did too. Not a big love lost here.

Lastly we have the “YOUR NAME IS BRAD AND WHILE YOU’RE NO BRAD PITT, YOU’LL DO FOR NOW RELATIONSHIP– JEN AND BRAD x2”

6f028_b803cd05880266c0_090619-jen-bradleyHere we have Exhibit A- which we see all too often, Jen on a romantic date with a celebrity male. Shortly following this date will be tabloid fotter saying Jen has been impregnated or found the man of her dreams. I know the ladder is untrue, can’t say the same for the baby situation. She picked “the man” of the moment — he’s the new Robin Williams, granted, but had no interest in her either and quickly swept up Renee Zellwiger (which literally isn’t all too hard to do).

Dear Jen,

Here’s my plan of attack for you. Ditch men and buy a cat…. or two.
