David Letterman SKEWERS Trump & Administration: Reveals What He'd Ask Donald In One Final Interview


The former late night king needed no prompting in his answers regarding President Trump in a new interview....

And it's MUST read!!

Speaking with 'New York Magazine', David Letterman opened up about the Trump administration, everything he's done up to this point in his presidency, and more.

Dave started off with how he feels late night hosts now have an obligation to skewer Trump due to all of his lies and crazy antics:

"Can you imagine not doing Trump jokes? That would seem bizarre," before heaping high praise upon Alec Baldwin's 'SNL' impression: "Comedy’s one of the ways that we can protect ourselves. Alec Baldwin deserves a Presidential Medal of Freedom. Sadly, he’s not going to get it from this president."

Letterman continued praise, but this time to other late night hosts Seth Myers and Stephen Colbert for their constant digs at Trump. When asked about Jimmy Fallon's no infamous hair tussling moment with Donald, Dave said: 

"I don’t want to criticize Jimmy Fallon, but I can only tell you what I would have done in that situation: I would have gone to work on Trump. But the thing about it is, you don’t have to concoct a complicated satirical premise to joke about Donald Trump,”

And then, needing no prompting from the interviewer, Letterman took aim at Trump's administration, calling Steve Bannon "the hunchback of Notre Dame", Stephen Miller "a creepy guy who fell out of a truck", and Sean Spicer "a boob". He also took aim at Kellyanne Conway, saying "Boy, if this administration decides you need counseling — whoa".

Remembering back to older interviews he had done with Trump, Letterman added: 

"He was a joke of a wealthy guy. We didn’t take him seriously. He’d sit down, and I would just start making fun of him. He never had any retort. He was big and doughy, and you could beat him up. He seemed to have a good time, and the audience loved it, and that was Donald Trump."

Finally, he explained how he would love to conduct one final interview in his career, and sit down with "Trumpy": 

"I would just start with a list. “You did this. You did that. Don’t you feel stupid for having done that, Don? And who’s this goon Steve Bannon, and why do you want a white supremacist as one of your advisers? Come on, Don, we both know you’re lying. Now, stop it."

Madonna Delivers Brutal Truth During Billboard Honor

UPDATED WITH FULL VIDEO:


 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 …

PopGoesTheArts Is BACK!!!!

Did you miss me?

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…

'Big Little Lies' Officially Returning For Season 2

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…

My Reaction To Golden Globe Nominations

It's that time of the year again:

AWARDS SEASON!!!

The 75h Golden Globe Awards were announced yesterday, and as per every other year....

It was kind of bananas.

While most of the acting categories seemed to get things right (more on that shortly), there is quite a bit of backlash concerning the Best Director category.

The category went to all men:

Martin McDonagh (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri), Guillermo Del Toro (Shape of Water), Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk), Ridley Scott (All The Money in the World) and Steven Spielberg (The Post).

First off, we would argue that Jordan Peele should have been nominated for 'Get Out'. Hands down, that right there is a snub.

But what about Patty Jenkins for 'Wonder Woman'? Where's Great Gerwig for 'Lady Bird'? Where the HELL is Dee Rees for Netflix's 'Mudbound'??

Oh, that's right. They're all WOMEN.

Not a single woman was nominated for Best Director at this years Globes. What happens come …

WATCH: Britney Spears SLAYS Her Billboard Music Awards Medley!!

I haven't recovered.......so...bare with me.

Britney Spears took the stage at tonight's Billboard Music Awards with a career-spanning medley, and girl didn't just bring it.....

SHE DESTROYED THE STAGE!!!

Our favorite Louisiana girl brought the house down right out the gate, with a scorching performance that included 'Work Bitch', 'Womanizer' (THAT BREAKDOWN!!!),'I Love Rock N' Roll,  'Breathe On Me', 'Touch of my Hand', 'Slave 4 U' and of course, 'Toxic'.

What has to be mentioned is Brit's energy on stage. Her smile was back, she moved like the pro we all fell in love with, and it was FIRE from start to finish.

Check out the FULL performance below!!





And don't......oh DON'T.....ever forget this moment:
