Hot Mess Mondays: Mess in the U.S.A.

Once again, the rich and famous have lived up to my expectations…Let’s get it!

1) Mitt Romney for choosing Paul Ryan as his running mate.

Usually, I try not to get too political on here, but I can’t ignore Romney’s new best friend. If you haven’t heard of Paul Ryan by now, he is considered the mastermind behind the Republican Party’s tax cuts and spending plan.

I’m a Republican on paper, but I think it’s time to become an Independent…Side eye.

2) Romney and Obama for forgetting their roles.

Listen to the first 5 seconds of the clip below.

President Obama also made a similar gaffe when he referred to Biden as the president. Get it together guys! haha

p.s. I’m very curious to see how this year’s election will play out.

3) Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada for becoming our country’s most mess couple.

 

Over the weekend, Chad Johnson a.k.a. Chad Ochocinco was arrested for domestic violence after headbutting his wife, Evelyn Lozada. Read the full story here —> Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson Arrested

To be perfectly honest, I’m not surprised about these two. Evelyn is known for her hoodrat ways on Vh1’s Basketball Wives, having thrown multiple objects at other cast members. As for Ochocinco, only time will tell what will happen to his career. He’s already been dropped from the Miami Dolphins…

Don’t worry Chad! Maybe America will forgive you like they did Chris Brown! Oh wait, he still has a stage to perform on…Nevermind.

4) America’s fave young starlet for hiding her new do.

Miley Cyrus

Ms. Cyrus decided to get a little scissor happy over the weekend.

Now, instead of rockin’ long auburn locks, Miley is workin’ an edgy bleached blonde cut.

I can get down with Miley’s new hair. After all, I did chop mine off a few months ago…haha

With that said, Miley needs to show that she’s proud of her look. It sounds like the paparazzi are starting to get the best of her – Miley hid her face and hair from the cameras as she walked with her fiance, Liam Hemsworth. #Nobueno

Oh well…At least she still has her hits…

Maybe the short hair was a bad idea…lol

No need to say “Fight!” These heifers already took care of that part…Side eye.

Hot Mess: Olympic Edition

With the London Olympics turning every superior athlete into a celebrity, there’s a lot to discuss. Let’s get it!

1) The media for making a fuss over Gabby Douglas’ hair.

When Douglas became the first African American to win the all-around gymnastics gold medal, Black viewers only seemed to focus on the appearance of her hair. As a black woman, I must admit. I did notice that Gabby’s hair was not “did.” With that said, I was not about to provide any commentary on the matter. Homegirl is not only in the Olympics, but she’s also making history. Who cares about her curls?

p.s. I get that Twitter is where people like to “clown” others. But, maybe it’s time we think before we tweet?  Just sayin’.

2) Anyone giving McKayla Maroney a hard time.

Everyone knows that McKayla is the best female vaulter in the world, but even the best cannot be perfect. McKayla failed to claim the gold medal in the individual women’s vault competition after falling. Poor thing.

Now, people are talking about McKayla’s cold facial expressions. Some have even labeled her a “sore loser” and “brat.”

Am I missing something? If you knew that you were the best, would you be jumping for joy over a silver medal? Absolutely not. There’s nothing wrong with showing a little disgust when things don’t go your way in competition. After all, a true competitor always wants to WIN.

3) Critics of Serena Williams’ victory Crip Walk.

Honestly, if I destroyed another tennis player at the Olympics to win gold, I would dance too. Some people just don’t know when to shut up.

Read the article about Williams’ dancing here –> Serena Williams Crip Walk

4) Reporters for bringing certain financial situations to light.

Over the past few days, all I’ve been hearing is how Ryan Lochte’s parents are facing foreclosure and how Gabby Douglas’ mother is in serious debt. I’m sorry, but when did any of this become the public’s business?

I know that both Gabby and Ryan are receiving massive amounts of attention because of the Olympics, but their parents’ troubles are none of our business.

Side note: It’s totally inappropriate for the media to be asking Gabby about her mother’s filing. The girl is sixteen years old. Let her stay sixteen…#AMess

Hot Mess Mondays: I Hate Peacocks

1) NBC for making the Olympics incredibly difficult to watch.

I remember the days when you didn’t need cable to watch the greatest sports show on earth. Now, I can’t even get NBC to show up with my $8.19 RCA rabbit ears. I know what you’re thinking…rabbit ears? But, I can see CBS, FOX, and ABC. So, where’s my peacock?

I’m just sayin’. I shouldn’t have to sign in to a Comcast account to access the London games. No wonder NBC is ranked number 4. It didn’t even stream the opening ceremony. #AMESS

2) Harper Gruzin’s parents for setting their daughter up for national embarrassment.

 

The video below has officially gone viral.

Poor thing. At least she’s not camera shy?

3) Kristen Stewart for just being a mess.

If you’re going to dabble in the art of cheating, I suggest you do it right…This awkward heifer is not on this list for her transgression. She’s here because she wasn’t sneaky enough. Who does a big budget movie and gets caught making out with the married director?

p.s. Rupert Sanders (pictured with Stewart above) is disgusting. He’s twice the girl’s age and has babies. Keep it in your pants fool!

4) Men’s gymnastics for trying to be a little too manly.

While watching the Olympics, my roommates and I could not get over how incredibly quiet the men’s floor routines were. I know that the men probably want to be taken seriously, but they could still add some music to their competition. Personally, I think the Terminator and Batman soundtracks would be great for these male athletes.

Side note: John Orozco, the “tannest” one in the photo, believes that his flub on the vault kept the U.S. team from placing. However, I watched all 3 hours of the men’s team finals, and there’s no way he lost it all for the team. Keep your head up Orozco! 🙂

Music Tuesdays: Call Me A Traitor

Since I’ve completely abandoned US artists, I think it’s pretty fair to say that I am a Pop traitor. Fortunately, I don’t care – I will continue to be on the UK bandwagon until further notice.

Ryan O’Shaughnessy

Ryan O’Shaughnessy, a young Irish singer-songwriter, was a contestant on the latest season of Britain’s Got Talent. Now, he’s an up-and-coming teen heartthrob. Check out his BGT audition!

He’s so precious and talented! If you like “No Name,” I would suggest watching its official music video below.

Apparently Ryan’s girl has decided to remain friends. Poor guy… At least he will have plenty attention from the opposite sex from now on. 😉

 

Aiden Grimshaw

Another young UK artist to watch is Aiden Grimshaw. Aiden was a contestant on the UK’s X Factor, and has been recording music ever since. His new video for “Curtain Call” is below.

It’s a different sound from the sweet melodies of Ryan, but I still like it. What do you think? Is it suitable for American radio?

p.s. Tickets for the One Direction 2013 Tour are already on sale. Hollers! hahah

Hot Mess Mondays: Problem 160

Don’t you just loooooove Mondays? Let’s get it!

1) The Jacksons for just being an absolute mess.

The late Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris, had everyone worried when she tweeted that she had not seen her grandmother, Katherine Jackson, in over a week.

Fortunately, Katherine is not missing – she is actually alive and well with her daughter Rebbie in Arizona. Katherine has to take a break from the family to “de-stress.” Recently, there’s been huge debate over Michael Jackson’s will. #AMess

When will this family ever get it together? I guess it’s hard with all those members….

p.s. Katherine looks A-mazing for her age! I wish her all the best.

2) Kelsey Grammer and his wife for also being a public mess.

I know that this is a “happy” couple and all, but I just can’t stand the love story behind these two. Kelsey Grammer started seeing his wife Kayte Walsh while he was still married to his ex, Camille Grammer. Now, the couple have a newborn daughter.

Although I am excited about the couple’s baby girl, I just can’t support the entire family unit.

Side note: Kelsey and Kayte got married in February 2011 before renewing their vows this past June. Kayte was clearly there for Kelsey’s mid-life crisis. Let’s just hope she’s still around for his clock-is-literally-ticking crisis….

3) TLC and their parent company, Discovery Communications, for scarring me again.

While catching up on some Perez Hilton, I came across one of the celebrity blogger’s most disturbing posts about a man with scrotal lymphedema. This man’s scrotum is literally 160 pounds and 6 feet in circumference!

As a former Discovery Health intern, I have many fears concerning the medical world… Now, I can add seeing someone with scrotal lymphedema to my list of fears. Thank you Discovery and Perez…

To check out the video on Perez’s site, click here —-> 160 pound scrotum

For obvious reasons, I won’t be putting an actual picture of this man on my blog.

4) Rihanna and Chris Brown for continuing the rumors.

Apparently, Chris Brown and Rihanna had a “romantic evening” aboard a yacht in the South of France. Like I always say, I don’t really care what these two do. Nonetheless, they are kind of being a hot mess with their relationship. But as many of us can attest to, first love trumps all.

Music Tuesdays: UK Artists Continue to Bring It

I’ve been rather bored at the office lately, which means I’ve been listening to a lot of music. My latest fave is Emeli Sande.

Emeli Sande

Emeli is a Scottish R&B singer, and she’s soooo good! Check out her “My Kind of Love” below.

I am absolutely IN LOVE with this song! I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve listened to it. It definitely needs to be on the radio here in the states. Sigh…

FUN FACT: Emeli’s first name is Adele – I wonder why she doesn’t go by that…lol

Rebecca Ferguson

Another UK artist that is catching my attention is Rebecca Ferguson. Rebecca appeared on the UK’s X Factor a couple of years ago, competing against famous youngsters One Direction and Cher Lloyd. Although I didn’t care for Rebecca on the show, she has started to grow on me. Watch her video for “Too Good To Lose” now!

So simple, yet so much fun!

If you like “Too Good To Lose,” then you should definitely check out Rebecca’s other single “Teach Me How To Be Loved.”

#Beautiful

I am just so thankful that the UK continues to promote its best talents. I’m still waiting for America to do the same. I guess I’ll just have to settle for Nicki Minaj…Side eye.

Hot Mess Mondays: Good Try Romney

It’s that time again. Let’s get it!

1) Mitt Romney for failing to keep it together.

For those of you who haven’t heard the story, Mitt Romney was booed at the NAACP convention last week after promising to repeal Obamacare.

Check out the full story here —-> Mitt Romney Booed

Honestly,  Romney needs to do a better job of hiding his nerves. He looks completely terrified in the video…

Say what you want. Bush usually seemed unfazed by the jabs being thrown his way. He even handled that 2008 shoe incident well.

Now, there’s a real leader! 😉 haha

2) Debbie Dunn for failing her drug test and losing her spot on the U.S. Olympic team.

Who fails a drug test in 2012? No, better question – Who fails a drug test for the Olympics? It’s probably the dumbest thing for any athlete to do. Oh well…As someone once said, “She’s dunn!” #FAIL

3) Billy Ray Cyrus for tweeting a bloody photo of his son.

Apparently, Billy Ray’s son, Braison, was hospitalized over the weekend with severe bleeding.

Check out the bloody photos here —-> Braison Cyrus Hospitalized

I understand that Billy Ray is excited about his son’s health, but no one wants to see Braison hold a container of blood… I mean, really…

4) American Idol for losing both Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez.

I loved the on camera chemistry that Steve Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, and Randy Jackson had. It seemed the most natural since the days of Randy, Paula, and Simon. Not to mention, Tyler was an absolute nutcase. He always said the craziest things and made the most unusual noises with his mouth. lol

Anyways…

Rumors are already circulating that Fox is interested in getting Mariah Carey as a new judge. Hmmm…What do we think about that idea? lol
