Courtney Love Thinks Miley Cyrus Is a F---ed Up, Hillbilly Punk Rocker, and '50 Shades' Laughable Sperm Scene

By Dustin Rowles | Pajiba Love | September 11, 2013 | Comments ()


What is going on with the goddamn midriffs, ladies? If you’re going to continue to dress like this, the fellas are gonna bring back the sleeveless T-shirt. Then what? THEN WHAT? We will go Joey Fatone on your asses. (GFY)

Sons of Anarchy fans: This is a little awkward. Both JoRo and I are covering the show on different sites, neither of which are Pajiba. Mine’s on Uproxx. Hers is on Vulture (I know, right! How awesome is that? NEW YORK MAGAZINE. So proud!). I’m not going to tell you whose recap to read, but you should totally read Joanna’s. (Vulture)

You could however check out my Dexter recap, where my biggest issue among a series of gigantic issues in this week’s episode was the moronic, boneheaded ridiculous decision by Hannah McKay — a refugee wanted for murder — to go out without a disguise. Unreality’s Paul Tassi has 14 disguise suggestions she could’ve taken. Anyone would’ve worked. (Unreality)

Someone we like is expecting. A child, that is. Not, like, the UPS truck, although probably that, too. CONGRATULATIONS. You’ve just given birth to an Amazon package! Also, never pay for gift-wrapping from Amazon. They just throw it in a large Crown Royal bag and charge you $5. Oh, where was I? Pregnancy! Julie is gonna be so sad. (DListed)

Courtney Love is her usual, hilariously incoherent and damaged self, calling out Robin Thicke (was he the guy in Charles in Charge), Katy Perry (boring) and praising Miley Cyrus for her VMA performance. It was “like dark and hillbilly and fucked up.” (IDLYITW)

Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine almost had a cameo on Sam Raimi’s Spider-man. Really?Details, please. (Slashfilm)

How did the Red Sox reverse their fortunes from last season? A series of off-season moves that were roundly mocked and ridiculed, that’s how. (Grantland)

Should the Six Feet Under pilot be entered into “The Canon”? I say yes. The first season of “SFU” remains one of the 20 best seasons of all time. (PreviouslyTV)

Denesteak sent along this piece on the UN Report on rapes and attitudes toward it in the Asia-Pacific region. It’s insane. ONE IN FIVE MEN have raped. Why? Twenty seven percent of rapes are attributed to “Fun and boredom” while 45 percent simply thought they were entitled to it. Messed up. (CambodiaDaily)

It’s ridiculous that Brad Pitt is being asked about Charlie Hunnam being cast in 50 Shades of Grey, but Pitt actually provides a sweet answer, the complete opposite of what I expected, which is: “Who is Charlie Hunnam?” (Celebitchy)

Finally, Chloe Bridges (Carrie Diaries) auditioned for the lead in 50 Shades of Grey, and decided even before she was rejected that she couldn’t do it because the script — which involved an extended conversation about sperm — was too laughably bad. (Cosmo)

Ready For Fall: 30 New TV Shows at a Glance | Your Opinions on Miley Cyrus Are Necessary to My Personal Wellbeing

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Ah! Thanks for including my link! I really appreciate it, and obviously as a feminist, this is an issue I feel very strongly about. I understand it is depressing but even for a Cambodia-phile, these numbers were insane. We talk often about how rape happens a lot here (especially child rape. Yea, the stories in the local newspapers every single day about a 4-year-old getting raped by a 50+ year-old person is mind-numbing) but these statistics made even the most cynical of us drop our jaws.

    1 in 5. That means that if there are 20 Cambodian men in at a random restaurant, four of them would have raped someone with two of them having done it before they were 20.

    Another interesting thing is that out of all the countries surveyed, more Cambodian men have participated in gang rapes than any other country surveyed. This reminded me of an interview someone I know did once where the interviewee basically said that he and his mates were basically gang-raping people for fun, like it was a fun weekend activity. "We would get some beers, then go find a girl on the street." Horrific.

    On a scale of 1 to wrong--how awful is to think that Miley got a lot of lipstick on that speaker thingy? And how did she keep her face so clean? Practice makes perfect, I guess. I'm not that talented.

  • bastich

    Is that what she's holding? I thought it was a sausage.

  • QballK

    Who's going to finally tell Miley that this Brigette Neilsen look isn't really working out?

  • Mrs. Julien

    Your pajibanym is a big ole tease.

    I like her hair. She's young. It's fun. It'll grow.

  • First off - Midriff baring shirts are like yoga pants in that they should be encouraged for any woman who has the wherewithal to successfully pull them off. Also, I still to this day wear sleeveless t-shirts as well as sleeveless work shirts, but then I'm a big redneck and it's kind of expected.

    Secondly - I misread that bit about Cambodia Daily as 1 in 5 men have -been- raped, which completely changes the whole point of the article. Then I went back and re-read it and felt like an idiot.

  • Regarding that Celebitchy article, "Vlad" is not a vampire movie, it's a historical retelling of Vlad the Impaler. Listen to Charlie Hunnam's Nerdist podcast interview and he talks at length about it and it sounds quite interesting.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Now that is good news. The story is good enough to stand on its own feet, without all the toothy embellishments.

  • Katylalala

    I've never really paid attention to Sons of Anarchy or the other things he's been in since Undeclared, so I have been astounded the last few weeks at what my sweet little Lloyd looks like now.

  • John W

    The only move the Red Sox made in the off season that matters is they fired Bobby Valentine.

    He makes Rex Ryan look like Vince Lombardi.

  • Siege

    And apparently, that was--as many of us suspected--enough!

  • lowercase_ryan

    rolled sleeves > no sleeves

  • mairimba

    Downvoting cause the only people that roll their sleeves are those that are stuck in 1994 or are members of the band O-Town.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Shut up, YOU'RE an O-Town.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Class of '94 baby!!

    but seriously, I don't roll my sleeves. I have a farmer's tan.

  • Maguita NYC


  • Mrs. Julien

    Where do we stand on zhushing?

  • Maguita NYC

    Mrs. J... I tried looking up zhushing ... and found a lot of fluffing and zhushing in the gay community...

    What exactly do you mean by zhushing and does it have anything to do with lc-ryan's rolled-up sleeves? :D

  • Mrs. Julien

    Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Carson was always making guys "zhoosh" their sleeves.

  • Maguita NYC

    Oh. So it does have a lot to do with fluffing. Just not the extra on a porn set kind.

    I'm liking zhushing Mrs. J. We should use it more often, for example: See how Henry Cavill, OMG HISGL has finally understood the importance of zhushing his sometime ill-fitted pants?

    Or, OMG did you see how Henry Cavill, OMG HISGL, has zhushed his hairy chest for the new Superman?

  • Mrs. Julien

    Henry OMG HISGL Cavill's chest hair zhusher is my dream job.

  • Joe Grunenwald

    Wow, Vulture! Congrats, Joanna!

  • Mrs. Julien

    Wow. Wow. Wow.

  • Maguita NYC

    So the script of 50 Shades is faithful to the book? Quelle surprise!
    And this made me so sad for Hunnamniam.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I think it is a smart and calculating career move. Tons of attention, no one will blame him if it fails.

  • Maguita NYC

    Also, Hunnamniam nudity.

  • Mrs. Julien


  • Maguita NYC

    Whu... But all that oily hotness!

  • Mrs. Julien

    I feel the same about oily as the child above seems to.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    It must be so difficult to latch on.

  • linnyloo

    I volunteer to test that theory!

  • Maguita NYC

    I'm next! Where is my baby powder bottle?

  • Tinkerville

    Every time I see Miley Cyrus sticking out her tongue I just want to slap it back into her mouth. That's weird, isn't it..

  • foolsage

    I think it's less weird than wanting to attach an electrode and run current through said extended tongue.

  • MissAmynae

    or pinning it to a table with a stiletto knife.

    what? too far?

  • TheOriginalMRod

    My dog sticks her tongue out a lot. Older chihuahuas tend to lose some of their teeth and that makes it harder for them to keep their tongues inside their mouths... so it just hangs out the side. Maybe this happened to her too... hmm?

  • bleujayone

    My younger brother did the same thing all the time. Of course a few encounters with undesirable things (a packet of black pepper, loose pocket lint and someone else's errant booger) quickly righted that ship.

  • Totally understandable and reasonable.

  • LB

    You are not alone in that reaction..
