David Letterman Tribute to an Old Friend

Some things just stand alone. Like David Letterman’s wonderful recollection of his 38-year friendship with the late Robin Williams.

It started at LA’s Comedy Store. “We wanted to make people laugh,” said Letterman. And then Robin shows up “like a hurricane,” and soon left the others in the dust.

The tribute ends with a collection of clips of Robin’s appearances on David’s shows.

Wonderful and funny snippets from two parallel lives. 

Exactly the way that Robin should be remembered. Thanks, Dave – and thanks, Robin.

Pay to Play?

According to some reports, the National Football league has made its top three choices for halftime entertainment at the 2015 Super Bowl: Katy Perry, Rihanna and Coldplay.

And the league has reached out to each of them to ask if they’d be willing to pay for the privilege.

Typically, Super Bowl halftime performers don’t get paid, but the NFL picks up travel, accommodations and production charges.

This year, It appears that the NFL has run out of money – so they want the halftime entertainers to pony up some dinero.

Let’s see how far down the A-list they have to go before they find someone willing to pay.

Meanwhile, it’s making more and more sense to have someone like Weird Al Yankovic do the halftime entertainment. If the league’s going to be a joke, then why not the Super Bowl’s halftime show?

Baby Summer Rain...?

Christina Aguilera welcomed her daughter to the world over the weekend, and shared her name with the Twitterverse shortly afterward…
  Summer Rain (not to be confused with a feminine freshness product) was delivered by C-section, so that might put Christina’s Playboy plans on hold.

In case you missed it, a number of sources (which admittedly could simply have been the repeat of one source, because it is the internet, after all ) last week reported – just before Christina went into labor – that she planned to get into shape after the baby was born and then pose for Playboy magazine.

More nude than the pregnancy pictures that were all over the place the week before that. And that’s hard to imagine, really.

French Montana's Got His Rea$on$

French Montana’s a rapper, a record producer and a companion to Khloe Kardashian.

He recently told Billboard magazine he wanted to “capitalize” on Khloe’s fame. But then he told Access Hollywood Live that he’s very mad that the remark was taken out of context.

He was trying to say that he thought Khloe’s name should be spelled with all the big letters – you now, capitalized. (Okay, that part I made up.)

In the interview, he also talks about surviving a gunshot wound to the head.

There is absolutely no correlation between that event and his current choice of girlfriend.

Kim's New Book

Kim Kardashian revealed recently that she’ll be publishing a book next April.

Not to worry – she didn’t write anything. [Insert your own joke here.]

Instead, she’s releasing a book called “Selfish” that features 352 pages of selfies.

Right. Pictures of Kim, some taken by Kim, some taken of Kim, but all pictures of Kim.

Just $19.95. Unless of course you happen to have Instagram, like the rest of the world.

Looks like you can hang onto that cash after all…

And here’s my two cents worth: if she keeps posting pictures like this one from the other day, she’s going to have to change the name of the book to “What Is WRONG With This Girl?

Charlie Sheen Goes Big & Green with the Ice Bucket Challenge

You never know what to expect with Charlie Sheen.

I mean, which one will show up? Good Charlie? Bad Charlie? Out-of-control Charlie? Well-behaved Charlie? Or a Charlie we haven’t yet met?

Well, when it comes to accepting and one-upping the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, it looks like Good Charlie stepped up to the plate.

Check out the video to see how perfectly he plays it.

And to show he’s still got his sense of humor, he calls out Jon Cryer,  his former co-star on Two & A Half Men, Chuck Lorre, one of the producers of the show, and Ashton Kutcher, who took his place on the show.

Justin Timberlake for Pope!

The parents of an 8-year-old boy with autism knew that their son’s biggest birthday wish was to go to a Justin Timberlake concert.

So they were able to get him to a JT concert in San Jose, California. The young man – Julian – tried all night to get JT’s attention when finally, with a little help from some complete strangers, he succeeded.

Not only did he get JT’s attention, but he got it all – plus the attention of the 25,000 at the concert, as JT stopped the show to sing “Happy Birthday” to the little man.

What an amazing experience.

Check out the video below, and then check out what Julian’s mom had to say about the night.

Madden NFL Raps into Season 15

It’s hard to fathom, but the Madden NFL video game – produced by EA Sports – enters its 15th season this year.

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is this year’s coverthlete (just trying to coin a word for  inclusion in next year’s Oxford Online Dictionary), and the game has been updated with some fun new bells and whistles, like Player Sense 2.0 that improves the players’ contextual awareness, head tracking and emotions.

If they managed to bottle Richard Sherman’s emotions, there will be a lot of video screens broken from the inside this year.

Check out the game’s new promotional rap video, featuring comedian Kevin Hart and actor Dave Franco getting a little, shall we say, intense about the game…

Swaddled, or Embalmed?

Joe Francis – the guy who made millions off his Girls Gone Wild franchise – is expecting twins with his girlfriend. So he figured maybe it would be good to get some lessons on how to care for the kids from an expert?

So who does he turn to? None other than the woman who serves as nanny to North West, the child of KimYe.

Check out the video below to see Joe’s lesson in swaddling his children. It starts with him laying on sheet on his lawn, and quickly turns into a hostage situation.

Seriously. Joe ends up being so tightly wrapped, I’m pretty sure this woman spent a previous lifetime wrapping Egyptian pharaohs before they took up residence in their personal pyramids.
