From creative note ideas to unorthodox approaches for bottle-handling, the Chris Brown-Drake beef has given us so much. What it hasn't given us, though, is any music. Since the incident popped off at NYC's Club W.I.P. a few weeks back, neither Drake nor Chris had entered the vocal booth to articulate the struggle, anger, and pain certainly bubbling just underneath their respective surfaces until this weekend, when Breezy finally shifted the tension into his recorded output.
As Chevy Chase has revealed over the course of several (possibly drunken) voice mails, he doesn't think Community is particularly funny. As he's succinctly put it, it's "just a fucking mediocre sitcom." As far as your average TV viewer goes, Chevy is certainly in the majority. The show, mostly unknown by the masses, is dismissed even by a lot of dedicated TV nerds for its quirkiness and refusal to say consistent in tone, genre, and form. Where Chevy is, presumably, in the minority with his negative opinion on Community, however, is within the group of humans currently starring in Community. And as recently as April, Chevy was giving interviews where he predicted he "won’t be around that much longer."
Well, Kim Kardashian is mad at Jon Hamm. Happy Tuesday, everyone!
It started with a comment Hamm made to Elle UK (via EW):
“Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated ... Being a fucking idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly ... It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me.”
Maybe a touch mean-spirited, but ultimately reasonable, right? Hamm represents Mad Men, the high-brow end of our mass-market entertainment, and if he feels the need to slag off some of the crappier, better-rated entertainment options every once in a while, well, who's to tell him otherwise? The former Mrs. Humphries, of course. Via Twitter, Kim delivers a blistering response:
Good news for ascendant R&B crooner Frank Ocean: He is now famous enough that Mr. Don Henley knows his name. Unfortunately, acknowledgement of that knowledge has come via the threat of legal action — apparently, Henley and his label finally got around to checking out Ocean's rad breakup jam “American Wedding” and are not too psyched about the fact that Frank wholesale lifted “Hotel California” for it.
