I've previously spoken out about this, but need to say more.
Madonna was honored by Billboard as Woman of the Year at last nights event, and when she took the stage....
She delivered a speech that EVERYONE needs to hear!!
Speaking out on the ageism, sexism, and controversy surrounding her legendary career, the Queen of Pop held nothing back.
Including some tears.
If this speech ever needed to be delivered, it was now.
Thank you Madonna.
Read her entire speech below:
"I stand before you as a doormat. Oh, I mean, as a female entertainer," Madonna said. "Thank you for acknowledging my ability to continue my career for 34 years in the face of blatant sexism and misogyny and constant bullying and relentless abuse."
Recalling her life as a teenager when she first moved to New York: "People were dying of AIDS everywhere. It wasn’t safe to be gay, it wasn’t cool to be associated with the gay community," Madonna recalled. "It was …
Well, yours truly knew he wasn't going to be able to stay away forever......
After just over 3 months, I've gotten the itch to start writing again.
Over the next few weeks, I'll be dipping my toes back into my blog and of course, continuing to express my undying love of Britney Spears.
Truthfully, these past few months have given me time to reflect on what I want to get out of writing this blog again. It's not about quantity of posts, but the quality of what I'm writing. I don't watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians, so why write about it?
I need to focus my blog on writing about the things I love. This will no longer be a stream of daily posts about anything and everything Hollywood. Instead, this will be focused on what I find interesting and love.
I mean, 'RuPaul's Drag Race' All Stars 3 is fast approaching......so obviously I'll be writing about that. Awards season is in full swing, so of course that's going to be discu…
And shockingly, yours truly isn't jumping up and down for joy.
I'll get to that.
HBO has announced that this years breakout hit 'Big Little Lies' starring Nicole Kidman & Reese Witherspoon, will be returning for a 2nd season.
At this years Emmy Awards, the show took home Outstanding Limited Series, Outstanding Lead Actress (Kidman), Outstanding Supporting Actor (Alexander Skarsgard), Outstanding Supporting Actress (Laura Dern) and Outstanding Directing (Jean-Marc Vallee).
As of right now, only Witherspoon and Kidman are confirmed to return, although reports are saying most of the cast will return as well.
Now, here comes my complaining.
This series was perfectly executed, featured stunning performances from everyone (okay, even Shailene Woodley was FINE), and delivered an outstanding (at what we thought at the time) finale.
So.......why do we need to possibly ruin everything with a 2nd season?!
That's not to say that it will be awful, but when something is th…
Jimmy Kimmel continues to use his platform for AMAZING things.....
And how freakin' adorable is Billy!?
Last week, Jimmy Kimmel took the week off to be with his family, while his son Billy underwent his 2nd open heart surgery. Chris Pratt, Tracee Ellis-Ross, Neil Patrick Harris and Melissa McCarthy filled in for the host while he was off.
Jimmy didn't waste any time going back to pushing for healthcare, only this time there was a tad bit of a distraction as we couldn't take our eyes off of Billy.
