Jennifer Lopez Threatens Ricky Gervais @ GG’s

People are still talking about Ricky Gervais and the Golden Globes. One of the talkers is Jennifer Lopez. In an interview, posted below, Jennifer said that while Gervais’ routine was good fun, it was also a little strong. The fact that most of Ricky’s targets were right there in the room made the situation even more socially awkward. As Lopez said, she kept looking nervously around the room to see how many of the mentioned were sitting around taking the routine in.

Lopez shows that she’s a good sport and gets it by going on to say, with a mischievous smile on her face, that she cornered Ricky backstage. Lopez was also a presenter, and as she was getting ready to go on she collared Gervais and told him that she would beat the shit out of him. She reminded him that she was from NYC, and that booth she and her husband – Marc Anthony – fight. Than she said some other stuff that couldn’t be repeated on morning chat TV. In fact there were more bleep bleep’s than a road runner cartoon. Here’s Jennipooh to describe the situation in her own words.

So if we know anything about JLo it’s that the chick ain’t one but shy. She’s also a pretty good sport. If she can bring that combination to American Idol this season it should make for some entertaining viewing. Especially with Wild Card Steven Tyler seated right beside her. Now you’d have to watch for that alone!

Ricky Gervais – about the fall out

Tricky Ricky

ricky gervais deal with it memeThe morning following the Golden Globes was the first time that the event was generally talked about since ever. In fact people are still talking about it. The reason everyone is talking about it is because of the host – Ricky Gervais. If you’ll recall, and I’m sure you do, Ricky went in to the Beverly Hilton with a big assed pair of sun glasses and loaded for bear. He started his opening monologue with a crack at Charlie Sheen. He then went on to take a swipe at everyone in the room. By the time the ceremonies mid point rolled ’round the Rickster was absent, and rumors were swirling that he’d been fired mid show. Seems that Ricky tread on some pretty sensitive toes. in fact a comedic monologue didn’t go down as bad with the targets since Homer Simpson sent up Mr. Burns at the old bastard’s birthday bash.

same non coverage, but not the same non event!

So that had everyone speculating about Gervais future in Hollywood. Except for the ones who didn’t dare breath a word about it, like ET. They cover the usually bullshit like, are Brad and Angelina still in love, and wasn’t Selena Gomez’s dress pretty. It was ET’s usual “Who lost the most weight” type of coverage.That’s why ET has zero creditability. If the sound of Mary Hart’s voice didn’t trigger seizures in epileptic no one would pay any attention to the show.

most wanted but least liked

As for the rest of the world, they wanted to know whether or not Gervais was still alive and well, or whether a coalition of Scientologists, star whackers, and disgruntled celebrities had gotten together and bumped him off. Gervias himself put those rumors to rest with an outrageous post fall out public appearance – in which he showed off his own golden globes. here’s a little peak at that for your viewing entertainment!

Remember me? I’m still here!

So Gervais is very much alive and unrepentantly outrageous. That still leaves the question open of just how much shit the poor man has gotten himself into. Officially he’s very much in shit. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which sponsors the big to do, made released this statement shortly after the shit hit the fan:

“We loved the show. It was a lot of fun and obviously has a lot of people talking. When you hire a comedian like Ricky Gervais, one expects in your face, sometimes outrageous material. Certainly, in this case, he pushed the envelope and occasionally went too far. The HFPA would never condone some of his personal remarks. Overall, however, the show was among the best we’ve ever had and we were pleased.”

Hollywood in a state of shit shock

Now that’s kind of ambiguous. When ego’s need stroking you have to be clearer. So a little later on President of the HFPA Phillip Berk said – “He definitely crossed the line. And some of the things were totally unacceptable. But that’s Ricky.” Like Ricky’s gold boxer trunks, Berk wanted to leave nothing to the imagination. He did seem to hedge with the “But that’s Ricky” ender. So later he went a little further, saying “I had absolutely no idea what Ricky was going to say so anything I heard was heard was the same time you heard it,” Berk said. “When you hire Ricky Gervais, you expect the unexpected.” The trouble with expecting the unexpected is that you can still get the shit shocked out of you!

non commentary in the echo chamber

That may have been the word from Berk’s office but insiders were putting it even more emphatically. An unnamed member of HFPA, was quoted in HuffPo by way of Popeater (at least the Daily Beast can come up with original commentary – I’m just jumping on the bandwagon here because I don’t actually read TheDailyBeast, or even HuffPo) said, and I quote: “Ricky will not be invited back to host the show next year, for sure,” the HFPA member said. “For sure any movie he makes he can forget about getting nominated. He humiliated the organization last night and went too far with several celebrities whose representatives have already called to complain.” So in other words a bunch of oversensitive celebrity cry babies got their surgically bobbed noses out of joint.

Being Frank

That raises another good question – are these stars so fucked up and full of themselves that they can’t take a joke? Back in the old days of the Dean Martin Celebrity Roast that kind of routine was expected. Frank Sinatra had to sit through a bunch of B Listers and failed Vegas stand ups talking worse trash about him more than once, and Frank had a temper. However Don Rickles never did get knee capped. In fact he was back again and again and again to stick it to the Rat Pack (until his routine got so tired than many wished Frank would have him knee capped). The difference between Frank and the current crop of celebrity wannabes is that Frank could take it and laugh.

Remember when celebrities had the style to take a joke?


Entertainment Tonight – a dial tone in a digital universe

It brings up another point too. As said previously, this is the first time ever that regular people were talking about the Golden Globes the day after (and still the day after that) rather than tuning out the Entertainment Tonight blathering static – “How Demi Moore lost 15 pounds for awards night & what Oprah’s eating!“. It seems like the celebrity set are content to be completely irrelevant as long as they can go on being famous!

let’s give them something to talk about

https://i0.wp.com/www.funkship.com/blogimages/WonderWomanDidnt.jpgThe catch there is that celebrities are raving ego maniacs (except for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Jolie was in total bitch mode at the beginning of the evening, as she coiled next to Pitt with the usual look in her eyes that made you ask whether she was on drugs or completely possessed. After Gervais got into full swing camera pans showed Jolie loosening up, sitting up in her chair, and laughing mischievously. This even though she herself was the butt of some of the humour! Though Wondertrash has been no Jolie supported in the past, the official policy might have to change!). Raving egomaniac means ‘not able to take anything remotely resembling criticism‘. However it also means ‘can’t bear not being talked about‘.

“me first” again – one way or another

Now, for the first time in a generation, real people are really talking about them. That’s got to mean something. In fact I’m guess that Hollywood’s “Me Generation” could even get used to that. So once reality sinks in – and good luck on anything like reality ever setting in anywhere near Hollywood – Gervais might get forgiven. Who knows, we might even being seeing him again a lot sooner than insiders would lead us to believe! Let’s just say Gevais is the price celebrities pay for remaining relevant. Meanwhile we can always rely on ET to keep us abreast of Kim Kardashian’s new boob implants!

Ricky Gervais Golden Globes – Massacre at the Prom!


“My lawyers helped me with the wording of these jokes”

When you MC an awards show the usual routine is to stroke famous egos by kissing everyone’s ass. Ricky Gervais brought it back to Dean Martin Celebrity Roast level by taking aim and letting fly at every over inflated tin plated ego in the room. As a matter of fact there’s little I can say about that – except Ricky I’m gonna miss you – so here it is! Oh yeah and thanks for reviving the dead art of stand up comedy.

“oh Ricky you’re so fine, you’re so fine you blow my mind!”

Now this performance is a departure from the usual MC suck job. People don’t go to this things to get sent up or put on; they go to debut their new plastic surgery, or their new relationship, or their new designer duds. Then they run out the next morning to get the press clippings about them. Though the press clippings are usually the same “Brad and Angelina still together” (I think that’s a case where the new astrology applies – she’s more Taurus than Gemini; she won’t leave cause she’s too bloody minded too quit! Just like Hitler in WW2.), “So & so lost weight”, “Nicole Kidman had a great dress but her face still looks like she just came from the dentists”; they never get tired of reading bland compliments about themselves. So the art of the host is to be blandly complimentary! If he can do that without being obvious and while keeping up a semblance of comedy he might make toast of the town. If the MC can throw in a few cracks at Sarah Palin he might become the next Jon Stewart (though no the next Steven Colbert – cause that guy’s genuinely good!).

Strangers with Comedy – British American celebrity relations hit an all time low!

Now last night Gervais didn’t make any pretense to ego stroking. He let everyone have it by more or less telling it like it is. No one in entertainment is gonna stand for that because they spend alot of time and money trying to avoid seeing how it is! As a matter of fact they’ll even drop wads of cash attending New Age type seminars teaching them how they can more effectively avoid reality – “The art of the secret is focus on what you want!” In other words you don’t need drugs and booze if you can keep your head full of shit at all times!

Gervais goes off like Carrie on prom night – is there a doctor in the House?

So they’re not really emotionally equipped for that much reality in one concentrated doses. Especially not at an Awards ceremony – it’s like telling kids that there’s no Santa Claus on the night before Christmas. Let’s put it this way – Gervais act was so strong that not only will he never eat lunch in that town again, but Hugh Laurie could get fired off of House over it, just for being British. That puts Gervais career right down the crapper. Then again telling everyone what they wanted to hear would be too easy, wouldn’t it?

Celebs on Awards nite – “I feel bigger than Hitler after he invaded France!”

We can only hope that celebs try to keep this in perspective – for one thing this is the first time since – ever – that anyone not on the guest list has been talking about the Golden Globes that morning after. So what the beautiful people have lost in pride they’ve gained in relevance; thanks to Big Rick. Trashing the poor man’s career would seem to be a high penalty to impose simply for making the celeb set genuinely interesting, outside of a supermarket tabloid context. Besides, if they take it egotistically it might not be so bad – if the Rat Pack could take it from Don Rickles, then surely they should be big enough to take it too. The human ego is so fucked up that it will even feel good about shit eating if it can find away to feel important about it – and let’s not kid ourselves, an award’s nite gala is all about feeling as important as you can!

“I don’t know if even a make over can save him now!”

Now here’s a some some of the shots fired, courtesy of THR:

Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais kept his promise from last week that Charlie Sheen would be one of his comedic “targets” at Sunday’s show.

“It’s going to be a night of partying and heavy drinking — or, as Charlie Sheen calls it, breakfast,” the comedian quipped at the start of the show. “Wow, so let’s get this straight, so what he did was, he picked up a porn star, paid her to have dinner with him, introduced her to his ex-wife — as you do — went to a hotel, got drunk, got naked, trashed the place while she was locked in a cupboard, and that was a Monday. What does he do New Year’s Eve?”

Sheen isn’t the only one who was the subject of Gervais’ jabs. In addition to suggesting that certain “famous Scientologists” are gay, he took several shots at The Tourist. The widely panned movie became the subject of controversy when the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. nominated it for multiple Golden Globes last month, including best comedy or musical film as well as acting noms for stars Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie.

“It was a big year for 3D movies. Toy Story, Despicable Me, Tron,” he said. “It seemed like everything this year was three-dimensional. Except the characters in The Tourist. I already feel bad about that joke.

“I tell you what, I’m jumping on the bandwagon, because I haven’t even seen The Tourist. Who has?

“But it must be good because it’s nominated, so shut up, OK? And I’d like to crush this ridiculous rumor that the only reason The Tourist was nominated was so that the foreign press of could hang out with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. That was not the only reason; they also accepted bribes.”

Also on Gervais’ hit list:

Bruce Willis, whom Gervais introduced as “Ashton Kutcher’s dad.” (Kutcher is married to Willis’ ex-wife, Demi Moore, and stepfather to their three children.)

— The Sex and the City 2 cast: “There were a lot of big films that didn’t get nominated this year, nothing for Sex and the City 2. No, I was sure the Golden Globe for special effects would go to the team that airbrushed that poster. Girls, we know how old you are. I saw one of you in an episode of Bonanza.”

Jorge Garcia, who played Hurley on Lost: “One of the biggest TV events of the year was the finale of Lost. It was quite a complicated finale, and I’m not sure I understood it all. From what I can make out, the fat one ate them all.”

Cher: After quipping that the HFPA were bribed to nominate Tourist, Gervais joked: “No, all that happened was some of them were taken to see Cher in concert. Now how was that a bribe, really? It’s not, because it’s not 1975.”

— Talking about how Eva Longoria’s introduction of the head of the HFPA compared with his tasks of the night: “I helped him off the toilet and popped his teeth in.”

Hugh Hefner: “There’s been some great new TV dramas this year, like Boardwalk Empire and The Walking Dead. Talking of the walking dead, congratulations to Hugh Hefner, who is getting married at age 84 to 24-year-old beauty Crystal Harris. When asked why she was marrying him, she said, ‘He lied about his age. I thought he was 94.’ Calm down; just don’t look at it when you touch it,” Gervais added, complete with helpful suggestive gestures.

iconoclasm makes a comeback

I guess that Ricky must’ve left that event via the back door, since it must’ve left everyone as emotionally drained as an execution. That being said – I like his style, and it’s about damned time that some one stood up and said something like that! Besides it might have been much worse –

BTW Gervais was completely out of line when he said that entertainment journalists take bribes (they’re called swag), but Wondertrash is currently entertaining offers!
