Fans React After Bette Midler Rejoices Over Death of Joe Jackson

Mister D: I’ll be honest and say I’m flummoxed as to what to say here. I could never say something about the dead like this. I have never had anything that made me hate someone even if they did something heinous to me. I always think somebody raised them and taught them that these bad behaviors were somehow some strength. And I must say that I have been in some unspeakable positions where I just wanted to die, but I never could hate. But I’m more of the exception to the rule. So I feel I’m the odd man out. Now with Bette, compared to the familiar public, she probably knew more about the situation and what went on. She traveled somewhat in the same circles as Michael and Janet, and of course, with Quincy Jones. I don’t know if most people know this, but Bette was one, if not the first one, to be called about the We Are The World project (why no solo spot, Quincy?) plus he helped out with getting the sound right for her Vegas gig. She mentioned Quincy in her tweet, so that tells me they know more than what the general public knows. Does that make her right or wrong for calling it out? I think it’s a personal choice. She seemed to want to make a statement, and she very well did, and it looks like she’s not backing down. And I’ve always admired that quality in people. Well, some people. I think I’m more of a case by case kind of guy. And yes, I have taken the side of a Republican or two. I’m fair.

Bette Midler, Portrait

Within hours of the of the Santa Fe, Texas, high school shooting celebrities took to Twitter going at the NRA, demanding more gun control, and mocking condolences of prayer.

For example, when President Trump tweeted condolences based on the limited information available on the shooting at the time, Kathy Griffin responded by tweeting, “Go f*ck yourself.”

One minute later she tweeted:

=&0=&@kathygriffin

We can’t back down no matter what. The NRA has won in the past because we always move on with our daily lives and they don’t – they focus on their agenda.

Fuck The NRA https://twitter.com/cameron_kasky/status/997498409723531264

Celebrities across the world are campaigning against US gun laws after a horrific Florida school shooting, but now Bette Midler has taken her protest to a whole new level.

The 72-year-old actress and comedian is known for airing her views on social media site Twitter, and her latest post took direct aim at President Donald Trump’s new calls to arm school teachers with fire arms.

Using the iconic opening scene from The Sound of Music, Midler edited on two guns into actress Julie Andrews’ hands, which appeared to fire as she spun in circles on the hill singing ‘The Hills Are Alive’. Letting the powerful video do the talking, she simply captioned the post: “Enter the choir teacher…”

The tweet received mixed reactions from other users, with many sharing photos of a Photoshopped Trump being held down by FBI, while another photo showed an army man with “art teacher” written across his bullet-proof vest. Read More

Florida School Shooting: Celebrities Send Condolences, Demand Action & Change

Deadline
Florida School Shooting: Celebrities Send Condolences, Demand Action & Change
by Dino-Ray Ramos
February 14, 2018 9:32pm

On Wednesday afternoon, a 19-year-old opened fire and attacked students and staff at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. This marked the 18th school shooting on record in America since the beginning of 2018 — and we’re barely halfway through February. As the country’s heart sinks at the loss of 17 lives and injuring 24 at the hand of suspected gunman Nikolas Cruz, many — including members of the Hollywood community took to social media to not only send their thoughts and prayers but to demand change.

 “No word, no actions, no laws are enough until we end this epidemic of school shootings in our country,” tweeted Ellen DeGeneres.

Mark Ruffalo, who is known to be outspoken on social and political issues chimed in, “Prayers without accordant action are silent lies told to oneself, heard by no God, amounting to nothing. Action is the language of truth, the prayers of the Saints.”

The shooting hits close to home for actress Gabrielle Union, who lives in South Florida with her husband, NBA player Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat. She is also the stepmother of three sons.

“Like thousands in South Florida, we sent the boys to school in Broward County this morning… there are no words to describe the despair, horror & anger,” she said. “This does not have to be our collective reality. How many more? How many children must not make it home?”

From Chelsea Handler to Bette Midler to Kim Kardashian West to Stephen King, more and more tweets demanding change to in policy came out. Read them below.

It could be argued that there is no one better at social media than Kim Kardashian. After all, she—along with the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan—has it largely to thank for her meteoric rise to stardom. So when the reality TV star turned beauty and media mogul posts something on any one of her channels, it is never without intention. Such is the case with one of her latest Snapchat photos which offers a brief—albeit screen shot-worthy—list of people Kardashian plans on sending her newly launched KKW Kimoji Hearts Fragrances to.

‘Bring back the bush!’ Bette Midler asks women to reclaim hair down there

Mister D: I hope people on the site can contain themselves better than some of those on Facebook. What I saw as a funny, innocuous statement by Miss has caused a stir from some. Some of the things said on Facebook were that Bette was tasteless (obvi new fans, it’s none of her business, there are more important things to talk about (I’m sure we’re not saturated enough with talk of Trump as it is. People don’t realize the extent of our problems in the US, but you can bet people can describe Donald’s last shit), to Miss M has gone too far left or that’s just more of that nasty lib talk (Personally, I thought pubic hair was a bipartisan issue. I’m sure my long time readers won’t ever see the need to respond, they’ll just enjoy the fact that Bette brought it up. Personally I think the bald look on men and women as kind of disturbing in a weird way. It makes you look like a plucked chicken. I like my men natural. Give me that any day, but I wouldn’t turn away a bald one either. I guess it’s just personal preference, but really do we have to argue about it? Really?

‘Bring back the bush!’ Bette Midler asks women to reclaim hair down there
STARTS AT 60 WRITERS LIFESTYLE
January 25, 2018

She was never one to shy away from speaking her mind.

Hollywood star and vocal powerhouse Bette Midler, has called for women everywhere to reclaim the 1970s trend of full pubic hair in a hilarious tweet in which she mentions President Donald Trump and ex-president George W. Bush.

The tweet shared on Midler’s Twitter page has already garnered hundreds of comments and likes from fans who agree with the celebrity’s sentiment.

In the tweet, Midler wrote in capital letters “LADIES!! NO MORE BRAZILLIAN WAXING!! BRING BACK THE BUSH!!” she then went on to say “not George W., altho in comparison to our current WH Occupant… let me ruminate.”

Midler is a staunch democrat and has been critical of both Bush and Trump on social media over the years. She has made countless jabs at President Trump’s policies and hairdo in recent months.

Midler’s call-to-arms in support of pubic hair resonated with many fans, one of whom exclaimed, “The bush never went out of style, as far as I’m concerned!”

Another user wrote, “Proud to say I’ve kept mine my entire life.”

One user even noted that bringing back the bush is the only way to go when you have a busy lifestyle. “I’m a 45 yr old single mom with 1 & 3 yr olds. Needless to say I’m back to the bush,” she said.

There were many that remembered a time when having a thick bush of pubic hair was the norm and bare genitals were limited to children. “I miss the good old days when genitals did not require grooming,” one user reminisced.

This is not the first time Midler has shown her support for the ’60s and ’70s look. In July, 2012, Midler joked about a time when everyone she knew donned the bush.

Bette Midler isn’t the only woman Hollywood in favour of popularising the bush once again. Actress Gwyneth Paltrow, Emma Watson and Cameron Diaz have all joined the call to embrace a more natural look ‘down there’.

The obsession with the state of our body hair first started in 1915, when Gillette introduced the first razor for women, claiming body hair was “unsightly” and that “less is more”. When the ’60s and ’70s came around many women went back to the ‘all natural’ look, opting for a full bush once more.

Heading into the ’80s it was the hair on our heads that increased in size; while many had to manicure their lawn to make way for high swimmers and exercise gear. In the ’90s the ‘landing strip’ was popularised and now the focus is on having no hair at all, with many opting for a Brazilian wax.

So what do you think? Do you yearn for the days where having natural pubic hair was fashionable?

Do you agree with Bette Midler? Should women everywhere ‘bring back the bush’?

What Weird New Behavior Will Donald Trump Display At The National Championship Game? And What’s The Deal With Trump And Midler?

Deadspin
What Weird New Behavior Will Donald Trump Display At The National Championship Game?
By David Roth
Jan 9, 2018

A year and change into his first term in office, it’s still honestly kind of hard to tell why Donald Trump ran for president. At this point, we know enough about him to assume both 1) that it had nothing to do with any of the reasons he offered on the campaign trail and 2) that it’s probably something exponentially dumber than the most stupid possible guess. There is, knowing what we know about our big wet-boy-in-chief, every reason to assume that he ran for president because he wanted to put Bette Midler in a Supermax prison because she criticized him in Page Six back in 1991. But there is also every reason to assume it’s something even dumber, pettier, and more tragically dated than that.

Ever since he found out that he can’t just up and do that—the deep state is a huge fan of the performer they call “the divine Miss M”—Trump has been in a very bad mood. His workday has apparently shrunk down to about six hours of television and three brief meetings, and no one is even trying to stop him from retweeting @WeedHimmler or actively tweeting non sequiturs about how he “absolutely can tie his own shoelaces” or whatever, but he’s still clearly upset a lot of the time. Everyone makes fun of him, the hornier cousin of the fish guy from The Shape Of Water just wrote a book that depicts him as a testy imbecile, and somehow people still don’t believe that he can really tie his own shoelaces. On Monday night, though, Donald Trump will get to experience one of the perks of the most powerful office on earth—a luxury box of his own at the College Football Playoff National Championship Game!

In some ways this is obviously great for him: two excellent football teams in the biggest game of the college football season, access to what we can only presume are unlimited snacks of the beige/flap-shaped kind that Trump most enjoys to eat, and of course the chance to be on television wearing a suit and a baseball cap at the same time. But it’s not without its negatives. For one thing, the game is on ESPN, and Trump doesn’t like ESPN for reasons he has certainly forgotten about. For another, when Barack Obama attended past games he typically made a brief appearance in the broadcast booth; Trump will not be doing this, both because of his strenuous aversion to doing anything that his predecessor did and because his evident cognitive decline makes him kind of a wild card after say 6 p.m. He’d bring up Bette Midler for sure and probably the shoelaces thing again. It’s a chance that his handlers are unwilling to take.

Just because we won’t be getting the full Donald J. Trump Platinum Experience—the one where he says a bunch of large numbers, then spends 30 seconds blinking and saying “very very and so much” about whatever is directly in front of him, and then abruptly pivots to discussing how rude Suzanne Somers was to him in 1987 or whatever—doesn’t mean that he won’t give Americans something to enjoy during the broadcast. Besides what promises to be a very good football game, we will get the pure and terrifying entertainment of watching this great sticky man and his oatmeal mind doing all kinds of presidential things on television. Is he going to fall asleep in a baseball hat with his name on it like a big ol’ toddler? Is he going to appear on camera just absolutely demolishing a huge piece of chocolate cake that he got from who knows where? Will he do the thing where he takes a two-handed sip from a can of soda as if it were the dang Stanley Cup? Invite the University of Central Florida to the White House because he misread a tweet?

These are not rhetorical questions. Trump is slated to arrive at 6:45, and I will absolutely bet you a Coke that he leaves at halftime if not before; the game itself doesn’t kick off until about 8:17. Still, that should give this glistening soggy doof plenty of time to work the magic that he works. Below, you will find the official Deadspin Donald Trump Bingo Board for the College Football Championship National Championship Game. Feel free to play along at home.
