Breasts And Jokes Battle It Out For Your Votes

April 28th, 2008 10:50am EDT
Barack Obama
Millions may see political ads bashing or supporting McCain, Clinton, or Obama, but that's only because they're in between regularly scheduled programming. It takes a special breed of political footage to get people to choose to watch it, and it doesn't even need to be forceful, immediate, or full of relevant information. As the Obama Girl proved, it might be enough just to have scantily clad women. And just when it seemed as though bikinis and flesh had the political viral video market cornered, 236.com came into the fray with its stable of comedy writers from Conan, Comedy Central, and A...

'American Idol' Gives Back, And Michael Johns Is Eliminated

April 11th, 2008 9:07am EDT
American Idol
Tuesday night came and went. Host Ryan Seacrest introduced eight singers and three judges. Each performer chose an inspirational song to sing. As fast as it started, it ended. This week's "American Idol" could not compare to the hype and significance of Wednesday night's success of "American Idol Gives Back."

Why focus on Tuesday night's performances when one of the most popular reality shows dedicated two and half hours to raising money for poverty in the United States and Africa. Celebrities from all parts of the world displayed their compassion and generosity through their part...

Ignoring Old Show-Business Rules, Rolling Stones Brightly 'Shine a Light'

April 4th, 2008 9:47am EDT
Shine a Light
(HollywoodChicago.com) – In The Beatles versus The Rolling Stones debate (which no one under 40 would have), I’m decidedly in the corner of the Fab Four. I do acknowledge, however, the sheer stamina and staying power of The Rolling Stones.

They are charismatic and charming at the same time and their history of powerful classic songs gives them a magic credibility few bands have attained. In their latest concert film – the Martin Scorsese-directed “Shine a Light” – they bring their best as they are right now despite qualifying for social security.

Filmed with a phalanx of cameras a...

Low Times Mean Good Times With Andy Kindler, Part 1

April 1st, 2008 10:39am EDT
Andy Kindler
There seems to be a relationship between the state of comedian Andy Kindler's career and the state of American culture. The worse the economy, the less informative the news, and the poorer the satire, the more opportunities Andy gets. This past month alone Andy has been on Letterman, Comedy Central's The Root of all Evil, and was even profiled by the LA Times. "To a man like me," says Andy, "Who brings joy to the non-masses, I'm going to be able to profit during down times." What's down, what's coming, and what's funny about it is the subject of this Starpulse Q and A with comedian Andy Kin...

With stories like Britney Spears being offered a $1,000 by PETA to work as their secretary for a day, it's getting harder and harder to tell what's true and what's false. In this case, the story is true. But there are a few other stories out there that may be harder to discern.

Don't worry, Starpulse breaks it down for you. The following are hoax stories coming out of the Starpulse April Fool's Day newsroom:

Pop Culture Presidents: Campaigning in the Entertainment Spotlight

Barack Obama
The general election isn't until November, but already the competitive campaign season has tested the candidates. They need to be well-versed on foreign affairs, the economy, the war in Iraq and... pop culture? That's right, ladies and gentlemen. America's love fest with entertainment and celebrity just segued into a politics-meets-pop-culture frenzy.

Like any modern celeb, the candidates have to show a strong presence on the Internet. Especially prominent on the web is Senator Barack Obama. His public speaking savvy and themes of hope and change translate easily onto the pop culture s...

Battle Of The Campaign Songs: How Music Affects The Presidential Race

March 25th, 2008 11:23am EDT
John Mellencamp
Music is a universal hobby. It's one that everyone can - and likely does - share. You don’t have to know a whole lot about it to like it, and you don’t have to be "good at it" to listen to what it has to say. Thus, music is a powerful way for politicians to speak to their voting public. And where words and speeches fail, a campaign song can intervene and convey the message.

John Mellencamp must have been very aware of these facts when he asked GOP frontrunner John McCain to remove his anthem "Our Country" from his political campaign (after McCain usurped the song from campaign drop-out...

Borat & Simon Cowell Have The Biggest Balls; Tom Cruise Needs 'Em

February 15th, 2008 4:16pm EST
Simon Cowell
"You've got balls!" While it may appear to be an insult, it's really a grudging compliment -- an off-color testament to a person's confidence, fearlessness and take-no-prisoners approach to life.

To mark the premiere of its uncensored and very "ballsy" new sketch comedy series, "The Whitest Kids U' Know," the IFC cable network asked Americans a direct and unprecedented question -- to name the politicians, political pundits and entertainment stars they think have the most major cojones...and those who are most in need of more testosterone in their public lives!

Will The Candidates' Celebrity Supporters Have Any Impact On The Presidential Election?

January 23rd, 2008 11:38am EST
Barack Obama
Celebrities have long made their political affiliations known, to both the disgruntlement and delight of fans. They've turned on-air time into opportunities to express distaste for our current administration; they've used their fame to help their chosen candidates. Like it or not, some celebrities never turn down a chance to talk politics. And, like it or not, the public often listens.

Politicians have shown their discontent with glitterati appearing in front of Congress (Julia Roberts, Christie Brinkley, Michael J. Fox and even Kevin Richardson of the Backstreet Boys have just done th...

A new poll reveals which candidates U.S. adults view as the most desired neighbors.

Among all adults, Sen. Barack Obama barely edges out Sen. Hillary Clinton as the presidential candidate they would most like to be their neighbor in 2008 with 13 percent and 12 percent of the votes, respectively. Rounding out the top five are Re...

When The Washington Post's TV reviewer sat down to watch ABC's Carpoolers, they made the same decision the press has been making for years, " The show is stolen by potential comic discovery T.J. Miller." Beginning his career in Chicago, Miller's been labeled the breakout star of almost every performance he's been in, whether it be standup, Improv, or videos, and it wouldn't be surprising if he does the same in the forthcoming Untitled JJ Abrams project.

I’ve got about 200 pairs, silk pajamas in 20 colors, and velvet or satin smoking jackets, all custom-made.”

New Season Of '24' To Feature A Female President?

TVGuide.com reports that the President on next season's revamped 24 will likely be a woman. Sources confirm that casting could begin any day now. A show rep, however, cautions that, "Nothing about next season has been absolutely decided as of yet."

Coincidentally, "24's" female president would be in office just as Hillary Clinton's bid for the White House kicks into high gear. The show is also adding a female FBI agent to the mix. As previously reported on TVGuide.com, "24" — in an effort to reclaim some of the creative and ratings steam it lost last season — is shaking things up in...

Heckuva Job: Comedy Central's New Satire, 'Lil' Bush,' Takes A Cartoon Look At The President

June 11th, 2007 8:30pm EDT
George Bush
NEW YORK (AP) - Like most political satire, ''Lil' Bush'' pinpoints the logical extreme of real life.

Take its title character. Lil' George Bush is a pushy if none-too-swift lad making mischief with his pals from Beltway Elementary: Lil' Condi, Lil' Cheney and Lil' Rummy (pint-size versions of Condoleezza Rice, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld). Another thing: Lil' George resides in the White House.

Oh, sure, this new Comedy Central cartoon show does take lil' liberties with the truth. For instance, ''Lil' Bush'' is set in the present, yet George H.W. (not George W.) Bush is the na...
