When I was a kid, girls used to rhythmically press their palms together and chant, We must, we must, we must increase our bust! But aside from strengthening our pectoral muscles, it was a colossal waste of time. Boobies grow on their own terms.
While being questioned by Parliament on Tuesday about the allegations of phone hacking by at least one of his newspapers, News Corp’s CEO Rupert Murdoch was hit in the face with a plate of foam by Jonnie Marbles, a self-proclaimed comedian and activist.
Whether or not you agree with the action, what was really awesome was how Rupert’s wife, Wendi Deng, reacted. Seated directly behind her husband, she leapt to her feet and put a WWE-worthy smackdown on Marbles.
Max Beckham, a politics student who was there, told msnbc.com that as the attacker got up “he was muttering something under his breath. He was a little bit disheveled.”
“His [Murdoch's] wife, Wendi, jumps up and smacks him about three, four, five times, like hard, proper blows,” he added. “She was going for it. She tried her hardest to smack him really hard.”
You remember Rebecca Black. How could we all forget? She’s the teen whose overindulgent mother paid Ark Music $4000 so that her coddled kid who’s probably never heard the words “no” or “you’re really not good at that, honey” could foist the insipid song “Friday” on an unsuspecting public.
The video for that little diabolical earworm went viral, going on to become the most-viewed clip ever on YouTube while taking a helluva public drubbing. Many people called it “the worst song ever made ever no seriously EVER EVER,” leading to Black’s name being mentioned so often on Twitter that it’s still the site’s most popular topic so far this year.
It’s been noticed by anyone with eyes that Michele Bachmann’s husband Marcus, who’s been in the news recently for his alleged “pray away the gay” clinic, doesn’t exactly emit super-strong heterosexual vibes himself.
Jon Stewart hinted at it in hilarious fashion a few days ago:
And really, anyone who’s heard or seen the guy can tell he’s got the swish. (The first time I saw video of him waving to a crowd, it seemed the only thing missing was a sash and a tiara.)
Sarah’s little girl, who’s been making the media rounds to promote her memoir, Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far, stopped by Walters’ show “The View” on Thursday.
Not content for Palin to just sit and let her surgically-altered face look pretty, Babs grilled her about a passage in the book in which Bristol says her virginity was “stolen” by babydaddy Levi Johnston after she got drunk on a camping trip.
