John Oliver Explains Why Donald Trump’s ‘Nonsense’ Flipped The Script For Comedians

John Oliver thinks President Donald Trump’s “vacuous nonsense” has forced comedians to cover his administration in a totally different way. But with Trump, comedians have “to go through a different system where you’re trying to inject meaning into something that he said that’s objectively meaningless.” “That’s the problem,” he noted. “It’s so much vacuous nonsense that you feel like he’s just chumming the water with bullshit. One of the first things you need to do is convince someone why something that he’s just said—which does not seem like it’s worth listening to—is worth listening to.” Oliver also revealed that he didn’t want to interview the president. “I’ve got no interest in talking to him,” he said. “Interviewing him is pointless.”

Jim Carrey Gives Birth To His Most Disturbing Donald Trump Cartoon Yet

Jim Carrey described President Donald Trump’s birth as “the real State of Emergency” in the caption of a new cartoon that he shared online Friday. “Definitely not human,” the actor-comedian-artist added about his artistic reimagining of the president being born at the Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in Queens, New York, in 1946. Carrey shared the latest in his long line of anti-Trump pieces just hours after the president’s declaration of a national emergency to pay for his proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall.

Bill Maher: Donald Trump’s Wall Emergency Is Part Of Slow-Moving Right-Wing Coup

“He did it, fucko did it today,” said Maher, who described Trump’s address as “just completely crackers.” “I know I’ve said that before, but this was just one long, baseless, incoherent, stream of consciousness, call-the-nursing-home rant,” he added. Maher later repeated his theory, which he previously made in the days before the 2016 election, about how a slow-moving right-wing coup is taking over the country. This is “democracy-hanging-by-a-thread kind of stuff,” he added.

Oscars Will Now Air All The Show’s Categories Live, Reversing Decision

The Academy Awards will be airing all of the categories presented at its Feb. 24 Oscars show live after it faced sharp criticism for a decision to present some awards during commercial breaks. “The Academy has heard the feedback from its membership regarding the Oscar presentation of four awards,” the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said in a statement Friday, noting that all awards “will be presented without edits, in our traditional format.” Academy officials had announced Monday that four award categories ― cinematography, makeup and hairstyling, film editing and live-action short ― would be presented during the show’s commercial breaks. Critics were swift to denounce the decision as discrediting the work of people behind the camera and giving less due to underrepresented vo...

Brandi Carlile Credits Ellen DeGeneres With Inspiring Her To Come Out

Fresh off her triumph at the 2019 Grammy Awards last Sunday, Brandi Carlile gave fans another opportunity to marvel at her musical prowess when she swung by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday for a performance.  The Seattle-based singer-songwriter performed a chilling version of “The Joke,” accompanying herself on acoustic guitar. It was a wildly different interpretation of the award-winning hit, though just as effective.  In a brief interview following the performance, Carlile opened up about her Grammy experience, recalling the heartwarming speech she gave after accepting the award for Best American Roots Song for “The Joke.” “I basically just outlined that I came out of the closet when I was 14 years old because of you, and just never attended any parties or was never invited to a d...

Former ‘Fresh Prince’ Star Denied Copyright On ‘Carlton’ Dance

Actor Alfonso Ribeiro probably isn’t kicking up his heels at this news: The U.S. Copyright Office won’t allow him to copyright his famous “Carlton Dance.” Ribeiro created the dance in the early 1990s while playing Will Smith’s cousin Carlton on “The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air.” In December, the actor sued video gaming companies Epic Games, the creator of “Fortnite,” and Take-Two Interactive, which owns the “NBA 2K” series, for including the dance in their games without his permission. To boost his case, Ribeiro sought to copyright the Carlton Dance, but his application was denied by the U.S. Copyright Office, according to The Hollywood Reporter, The copyright office rejected the registration because Ribeiro’s “choreographic work” was just a “simple dance routine,” Saskia Florence, a superviso...

Blame Lady Gaga’s Botched Musical Tattoo On ‘Too Many Tequilas’

Lady Gaga apparently took a page out of Ariana Grande’s book What Not To Do When Getting A Tattoo and ended up with a body art fail all her own.  The singer, who’s reportedly amassed a collection of more than 20 tattoos, debuted some new ink on Valentine’s Day by Los Angeles-based artist Winter Stone but had to make a quick fix when fans pointed out a glaring error.  Gaga and manager Bobby Campbell inked the notes that spell out her name on a musical staff on their inner arms. However, instead of drawing five horizontal lines on the musical staff, there were only four. Luckily, Gaga had a sense of humor about the botched tattoo and quickly added another line to her arm, before joking that “too many tequilas” were to blame. “Musical crisis averted,” she wrote alongside a photo of the new an...

Kendall Jenner Bites Into A Croc And Rubik’s Cube In Odd Game

Pink revealed that she hurt herself while slashing her husband Carey Hart’s tires “not long ago.”  The singer told Ellen DeGeneres that the injury and incident occurred last Thanksgiving. “The holidays are stressful,” Pink, whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore, said to a look of disbelief from DeGeneres and laughs from the audience during an episode of the talk show host’s show that aired Friday. “I got clean through the first one.

Prince Harry’s Valentine’s Day Surprise Made Him ​Prett​y​ Uncomfortable

Prince Harry spent his first Valentine’s Day as a married man away from the Duchess of Sussex ― but only for a few hours.  The royal spent part of the holiday inside the Arctic Circle in Norway with British and Norwegian troops to observe extreme cold weather training, traditionally called Exercise Clockwork.  The soldiers treated Harry to a funny ― and somewhat uncomfortable ― surprise, hidden inside an igloo.  The interior of the snow house was decorated with photos of the duke and former actresses’ royal wedding day on May 19. The troops even added soft music and candlelight to complete what Harry called the “romantic” shrine. The royal was clearly a bit overwhelmed by it all. Rebecca English of the Daily Mail captured a video of Harry’s astonishment.  Prince Harry was very taken with h...
