Katy Perry on Manchester Bombing at Ariana Grande Show: ‘We Need to Coexist’

katy-perry

The jihadists don’t want to co-exist with you Katy, no matter how naked you might be.

Here’s a pro-tip for Katy: That will NEVER happen. Jihadists don’t co-exist with us infidels. Foolish womyn.

From Yahoo: Katy Perry said she felt “devastated” following the terrorist attack outside an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England Monday. Speaking with radio host Elvis Duran, Perry said, “I think the greatest thing we can do now is unite as people, as fan bases, all of it. Whatever we say behind people’s backs, the Internet can be a little bit ruthless as far as fan bases go but I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other. No barriers, no borders, we all just need to co-exist.

Perry also addressed fellow pop star Grande’s fans directly, saying, “I just want to say that I love all of you out there and I just know that some of our fan bases kind of go both ways. Ari’s fans are my fans, and my fans are Ari’s fans. We’re just all loving on each other and we should just stay loving on each other.

The “Swish Swish” singer’s comments on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show follow a pair of messages she posted toTwitter Monday after news of the bombing broke. “Praying for everyone at Ariana Grande’s show,” Perry said. “Broken hearted for the families tonight. Broken hearted for Ari. Broken hearted for the state of this world.”

At least 22 attendees were killed by a suicide bomber outside the Manchester Arena, while around 60 more have been reported injured. On Tuesday, police arrested a 23-year-old man in connection with the attack, while British Prime Minister Theresa May said police have the identity of the other assailant, who died when he detonated the device. The so-called Islamic State have claimed responsibility for the attack.

Numerous artists have also voiced their sorrow and support for Grande and her fans, including Harry Styles, Drake, Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Missy Elliot, as well as Manchester natives and local music scene stalwarts such as Liam Gallagher, Johnny Marr and Peter Hook.

As for Perry, the pop star is set to release her new album, Witness, June 9th. Over the past year, she’s also embraced her role as an activist, serving as one of Hillary Clinton’s most vocal supporters during the 2016 election and notably donating $10,000 to Planned Parenthood last November.

Jon Stewart: ‘pizza doesn’t need cleavage to be sexy’

In October 2013, Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show had a supposedly-funny (not) segment by decidedly unfunny “Senior Women’s Issue Correspondent” Kristen Schaal on “sexy” Halloween costumes.

Schaal said “If you are going to sexually objectify yourself, what better way than to become a sexy inanimate object” like a pizza costume? An image of a blonde in a pizza dress was flashed on the screen (2:23 mark in the video below).

To which Stewart said something really strange (2:37 mark):

“I don’t know that pizza needs cleavage to make it sexy, you know what I mean.”

Schaal said, “I don’t think they go far enough. Ladies, why are we being so coy about this? Why don’t we just show everyone what we mean when we put on those sexy kitty/carrot/nurse costumes and take things to the obvious next level?”

Schaal brings out a woman encased in a giant vagina costume, and says: “I call this one ‘the sexy vagina’. And what better way to get everyone thinking of sex than to dress up as the place where sex happens?”

Then Schaal hangs a mockup of a big slice of cheese-and-pepperoni pizza on the vagina costume and says, “But we all know the one thing that makes giant vaginas sexier? Pepperoni.” At which point, Stewart is squirming with discomfort.

Reportedly, the Jon Stewart pizza video is repeatedly taken down by YouTube. Thanks to enterprising posters on Voat.co, I learned how to save the video to my computer. Here it is:

The entire unfunny segment on The Daily Show makes no sense to us innocents, until we plug in the woeful knowledge some of us have acquired some three years after that Daily Show was aired — Pizzagate’s world of pedophile code-words where, according to The Daily Sheeple and others on the Alternate Media:

  • pizza = girl
  • cheese = little girl
  • hotdog = boy
  • pasta = little boy

Urban Dictionary confirms the meanings of some of the code-words, including:

Did you know that Jon Stewart and Anthony Weiner once were roommates? After college, they shared an apartment in Soho and have been friends for many years.

Weiner is the disgraced former New York Congressman, husband of Hillary’s right-hand aide Huma Abedin, and convicted felon. On May 19, 2017, Weiner pleaded guilty in federal court to transferring obscene material to a minor — a 15-year-old girl (“pizza”) in North Carolina. Under a plea agreement, Weiner faces a sentence of 21 to 27 months, and will be required to register as a sex offender. Sentencing is scheduled for September 8, 2017.

A TV show promoting a polyamorous throuple: Canada’s “You Me Her”

I’ve never seen this show before because 1) I have no desire to watch it and 2) it airs in Canada. I’m sure American audiences can find it somewhere. I’ll pass.

The background on this “rom-com” (romantic comedy) show:

“You Me Her is a Canadian television show that revolves around a suburban married couple who is entering a three-way romantic relationship, otherwise known as a polyamorous relationship. The series is set in Portland, Oregon and was created by John Scott Shepherd. The series is also promoted as TV’s “first polyromantic comedy”. On June 9, 2016, Audience Network renewed the series for a second and third season. The second season premiered on February 14, 2017.”

The show’s premise:

“The series revolves around married thirty-somethings Jack and Emma Trakarsky, from Portland, Oregon, whose sex life has been slowly dying. In an effort to reinvigorate their sex life and possibly conceive a child together, they decide to bring Izzy, a 25-year-old college student and part-time escort, into their marriage, initially intending it to be a purely business-like arrangement. When both start to develop romantic feelings for Izzy, and vice versa, they find themselves having to navigate their way through a minefield of prying neighbours, social norms and prejudices, all while struggling to confront their own feelings and adjust to the unfamiliar dynamic of a polyamorous relationship.”

Another attempt by media to discredit social norms and slam the “prejudiced” people who uphold them.

Rosie O’Donnell’s daughter Chelsea tells how the former View host threatened her

Major drama for this family…

From Daily Mail: Rosie O’Donnell’s daughter is haunted by an episode with her ‘drunk’ mother during which the actress locked the teen in her bedroom, tried to pull off her clothes to see her tattoo, threatened to hit her with an empty wine bottle and told her she could ‘kill her’.

In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Chelsea O’Donnell says the May 2015 attack was the beginning of two years of ups and downs with her mother which has culminated in an estrangement she now feels is irreparable.

Chelsea also revealed that she and boyfriend Nick Alliegro, 31, secretly got married last July after she found out she was pregnant.

But the newlyweds suffered a devastating blow weeks later when Chelsea had a miscarriage.

‘I told Rosie about the miscarriage but she never seemed to care or even asked any questions, like it didn’t matter to her,’ Nick told DailyMail.com.

Chelsea, who was adopted by O’Donnell when she was a baby, says problems with her mother began shortly before her 18th birthday in August 2015. Three months earlier, she had the word ‘Breathe’ tattooed on her side. O’Donnell was incensed.

‘It was pretty late at night,’ Chelsea said. ‘A couple of weeks prior, I had gotten a tattoo. She [O’Donnell] had spyware on my phone so she could see pretty much everything I did.

‘She called me into her room and asked me about the tattoo. I denied it. ‘She asked me to take off my clothes – she didn’t know where it was – to show her and I refused.

‘She picked up a wine bottle and started chasing me, trying to take off my clothes. 

‘She told me if I didn’t show her, if I tried to leave, that she would hit me with the wine bottle, call the police and tell them that I had attacked her.

‘She was holding it above her head and coming after me in her room. She kept trying to run after me and saying that if she really wanted to she could kill me, she’s that strong.

‘She ended up pulling my shirt up and seeing it. Then I left. I didn’t see her for the rest of the night.’

Chelsea said that the wine bottle was in O’Donnell’s room ‘because she was drinking as she did frequently’.

The TV star, 55, didn’t hit her but ‘she came really close,’ Chelsea said. The teen didn’t go to the hospital with injuries nor did she contact the police.

‘I felt it was her word against mine and why wouldn’t they believe her over me?’ Chelsea said. 

‘I didn’t go to the police because of who she is. She would have tried to say I was crazy and they just wouldn’t believe me.’

Creator of Obama “HOPE” poster holds fundraiser for public arts and trashes Trump

Fairey: Without art, he’d be in jail…

We are approaching $20 TRILLION debt. Gotta make cuts somewhere.

From Hollywood Reporter: Joel McHale, Shepard Fairey, Mark Duplass and Adam Scott were amongst those in Hollywood who showed up to P.S. Arts’ second annual party benefiting arts education in public schools where Trump’s proposed NEA budget cuts was a hot topic.

Inside was a mixture of cocktails and arts activities as guests created their own jewelry and perfume. Mark Duplass was among those who had his portrait stitched on fabric in a matter of minutes by artist Michael Birch-Pierce. Balthazar Getty was the DJ for the evening as guests participated in body painting as well as sawing and sanding their own cheeseboards with the Nick Offerman Woodshop.

Fairey’s Yes We Can portrait design – which became popular during Obama’s campaign – were on display in celebration of Fairey as the honoree of the evening. He expressed that without the arts he probably would be in jail more often and spoke out on his opposition against Trump’s proposed NEA budget cuts released in March.

“I don’t think anybody from the current administration took an art class ever,” Fairey joked to the crowd. “That’s why they are so quick to want to defund it.”

Fairey told THR that introducing the arts to kids at a young age is as important for them as it is for the economy. “Art is good therapy for people. It builds self esteem. It creates great problem solving skills, but even from an economic standpoint the U.S. is a major exporter of culture,” Fairey said. “It’s a creative product and to neglect creativity is not only foolish in terms of people’s therapy that they get from art but economically it’s foolish as well.”

Big Little Lies actor Adam Scott commented on how glad he was that, despite the proposed budget cuts, the NEA recently released a statement to the Los Angeles Times saying their funding was poised to stay the same as requested, at about $150 million.

“It’s ridiculous and it’s hilarious because they had no leverage with the Republicans so they made none of the NEA or Planned Parenthood cuts,” Scott told THR. “Not to say they are not going to but budget they turned in was 100 percent waiting for Democrats. Luckily we got by this time but next time who knows. It’s disgusting and ridiculous just like everything they are doing.

Joel McHale, a constant supporter of P.S. Arts, similarly agreed on the importance of maintaining arts funding. He told THR that access to the arts in school while he was growing up was critical for him and commented on how maintaining the arts would be maintaining a staple of American culture.  “Arts at my public school saved me so I feel like this is the very minimum I can do is show up to these things and I support them,” said McHale. “Arts always is the first thing to go when things are cut and I think that’s wrong since this entire town is built on arts and further American culture which lot of it is art is one of the reasons why we are known around the world.”

The Great Indoors star added, “We don’t have a population that is the size of China or India and we absolutely could afford the arts. If we look to Rome or Greece where we modeled our government arts was one of the most important things in the culture…We invented an industry that goes around the world a million times a day. I think any arts cut is bad especially in a country that we have the largest economy in the world.

Al Gore Calls Media Coverage of Climate Change a “Nature Hike Through the Book of Revelation”

ManBearPig: Concerned about false information…

ManBearPig is blowing more hot air to promote his sequel to An Inconvenient Truth.

From Hollywood Reporter: “Every night on the news is like a nature hike through the Book of Revelation,” Al Gore said Saturday night when asked his opinion of how the news media reports on climate change. “And I’ll wait for the newscasters to connect the dots,” he continued, adding that they rarely do.

Gore spoke about the state of the news media and its effect on the conversation surrounding global climate change at a Q&A before an advance screening of his his latest documentary, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, held at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.

At the Fandango-sponsored event, actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt moderated the conversation with the former vice president of the United States, asking about “fake news” and its place in the denialist narrative about climate change.

“We have a challenge in the U.S., where climate in the news in concerned,” said Gore. “First: The line between news and entertainment has become a very porous line.” He added: “Second reason is that there is a pretty powerful and wealthy special interest of carbon polluters that have spent billions of dollars over the past three decades putting out false information.”

Gordon-Levitt asked Gore where he gets his own news. “I like to triangulate,” said Gore, adding his go-tos are The New York Times, The Guardian and The Wall Street Journal, adding, “I’ll read some red-state sites, as well.”

An Inconvenient Sequel, from directors Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, is the follow-up to Davis Guggenheim’s Oscar-winning 2006 doc An Inconvenient Truth. The Participant-produced sequel, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, will be released July 28 by Paramount.

Before the screening began, Gore prompted the audience to go to town-hall meetings, talk to their local representatives and do their own research on the global climate crisis. He concluded: “It has to come from the people because the news media is not giving it to us fairly and squarely now.”

Barbra Streisand ponders ‘what might have been’ with Clinton

streisand

Streisand has a yearning…

Ponder away Babs…

From USA Today: NEW YORK (AP) — Barbra Streisand usually talks to her audience, but Saturday night she had a special message for two guests: Bill and Hillary Clinton. Streisand gave former president and former Democratic presidential candidate much more than a shout out at her concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, her hometown.

She noted that she performed at President Clinton’s inauguration and then went on to list his accomplishments, including lowering taxes for some and raising taxes on the rich. “And speaking of taxes, he showed us his tax returns,” she said, a dig at Republican President Donald Trump, who has refused to release his.

She also introduced Hillary Clinton as “the winner of our country’s popular vote.”

She later talked about hearing a recent interview by Hillary Clinton and said it “makes us yearn for what could have been, what should have been. I was thrilled to hear yourself describe yourself as an activist citizen and part of the resistance.”

Taking another shot at Trump and his tweeting habits, she quipped: “Usually when a man that age is up at 4 a.m., he forgot to take his Flomax,” referring to a medication to treat the prostate.

Despite the Trump barbs, she called for a bridging of the political divide before breaking into Happy Days Are Here Again.

Streisand had been a longtime Democratic fundraiser and supporter, and friend of the Clintons. Streisand, who recently turned 75, was doing two dates in the New York City area, calling it a mini-tour. She hinted it could be her last. When the audience moaned, she shrugged her shoulders and said, “You know — other things to do.”
