Well we sure did have some ups and down this week in Pop Culture, didn’t we?

Let’s start with the sad news…
 photo 1361153207_mindy-mccready-reported-suicide_1_zpsa0868d31.jpgCountry Star, Mindy McCready allegedly commit suicide over the weekend.

Now I never really knew much about Mindy McCready until her stint on Celebrity Rehab (I am shamefully addicted to that show). And I’m just gonna say, that I’m think that show might be cursed…whether you are a Dr. Drew fan or not, there’s no denying that her season (Season 3), three out of the nine cast members have died. Scary stuff, you guys.
Praying that her little boys are being taken care of.



Another sad story continues…
Oscar Pistorius. The plot continues to thicken. It seems as if there were all sorts of mistakes made in at the crime scene.
Looks like we might be dealing with another OJ Simpson situation.

Now, a little lighter, but still on the sad side…

My favorite, Maksim Chmerkovskiy has split with fellow dancer Peta Murgatroyd.
Wonder if next season will be awkward?

Now, let’s talk about Clive Davis’ Memoir…
I haven’t read it, so I am only going on what’s made the news…but apparently he has come out and bashed Kelly Clarkson.

Here are her comments regarding Davis’ book, where he basically called he a cry-baby brat, according to US Weekly…

“I cried because he hated [Because of You] and told me verbatim that I was a “sh*tty writer who should be grateful for the gifts that he bestows upon me,” Clarkson says. “He continued on about how the song didn’t rhyme and how I should just shut up and sing. This was devastating coming from a man who I, as a young girl, considered a musical hero and was so honored to work with. But I continued to fight for the song and the label relented. And it became a worldwide hit. He didn’t include that in the book.”

Also, in the book Davis has come out as a “bisexual”. I would have preferred he announced he was “asexual” because he creeps me out.



Another confusing story this week was about Lindsay Lohan.
 photo 1361384909_lindsay-lohan-467_zps69ab3838.jpgApparently this dress that she is wearing above, was given to her on loan for an AmFAR event she attended.
Here’s how she returned the dress…
lindsay-loahn-ripped-dress-inlineShe said that the dress ripped and she decided to turn it into a dress mullet.

I sincerely hope that she will have to pay for the dress in full. Consequences people…it’s something this girl has not had enough of in her life.



Speaking of wardrobe malfunctions, this made me laugh…
Julianne Hough Ripped her pants break-dancing with Justin Theroux

Anyway, this girl seems like a lot of fun.



In romance news, it looks like Demi Lovato is back together with Wilmer Valderamma…

Hope Wilmer is a nice guy and they’re happy together. Again.



In other excellent news, it looks like Fergie is pregnant!

And of course it wouldn’t be a “This Week in Pop Culture” if we didn’t have the standard LeAnn Rimes shout-out.
This one is hilarious to me.
 photo 1360939790_leann-rimes-article_zps7dec994f.jpgApparently she is suing her dentist.
Because her veneers have hurt her career.



This week at the movies you can go see…

Dark Skies

“A psychological thriller about a suburban couple whose lives become a nightmare when a terrifying alien presence enters their home each night to prey upon their children. Increasingly isolated from skeptical friends and neighbors, the couple is forced to take matters into their own hands to save their family.

-Movie Insider





“Dwayne Johnson stars as a father whose teenage son is wrongly accused of a drug distribution crime and is looking at a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 10 years. Desperate and determined to rescue his son at all costs, he makes a deal with the U.S. attorney to work as an undercover informant and infiltrate a drug cartel on a dangerous mission — risking everything, including his family and his own life.”

    I so want to see dark skies. Now I just need to convince my family…

  2. 2

    Lindsay Lohan needs a good smack in her weird face. What in the world? Also, in interviews (and on SNL) her plastic surgery has made her look super creepy. She was such a pretty girl. And now… train wreck. Anyway, her and Leann should be BFF’s. Because they are crazy. And I totally agree- Clive Davis is a creepster and Kelly Clarkson has never seemed like one to BS.
