Madonna took on the Boy Scouts Of America at the GLADD Awards over the weekend which was honoring Anderson Cooper.
"I wanted to be a boy scout, but they wouldn't let me join."
“I think that’s f–ked up. I can build a fire. I know how to pitch a tent. I have a very good sense of direction. I can rescue kittens from trees. Listen, I wanna do for the community. But most importantly, I know how to scout for boys. So I think that I should be allowed to be a Boy Scout and I think they should change their stupid rules.”
Madonna's last few boyfriends could have been the age of boy scouts right? We kid.
Kick ass job Madonna, and worthy of our photo of the moment.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Pitching a tent. OK then.
The Chicago Bulls Joakim Noah apologized for the comments he made to a fan list night when he called a fan a gay slur starting with an "F" but never said that he said it, but apologized for his comments.
The NBA fined Noah $50,000, half what they fined Kobe Bryant for calling a ref the same word the game before the last game of the season.
GLADD thinks the NBA has a gay problem and they might be right. Although the players say it is just smack talk on the court, it is done in front of thousands of people in person and millions of people at home.
The NBA is in the middle of running a campaign asking people on the courts at home not to say the word, but the NBA's players are not following suit.
Was Noah's fine just right and should he have been suspended for games as well?-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: NBA Action It's "F"antastic
Perez Hilton is pushing on, suing the Black Eyed Peas manager Polo Molina. The blogger filed a civil lawsuit today for $25,000. Wow. That is one costly little boo boo. I've seen bigger shiners on little boys man up more than Perez has.
The suit is stating Perez is seeking to protect his freedom of speech and that he was attacked because he made critical comments about the Black Eyed Peas new CD. No, it's not dude. It's because you called him a f***** 10 times to his face. Doesn't make it right, but be honest FF. Perez is suing for emotional distress.
Molina, the Manager who allegedly thru the punch had a DUI in Orange County and could be facing up to 6 months in jail as he was on probation.
Here is the legal statement made by Perez's lawyer:
"Perez Hilton files this lawsuit to protect his freedom of speech and seeks legal redress against those who have physically assaulted him because they do not like his review of their album. Whether you love Perez or hate him, he is entitled to his freedom of speech without fear of physical violence. This lawsuit will make the statement that violence is never the answer."
Just want to add he still has not apologized to GLAAD for his use of the word F****. He is losing the public battle and he will lose the battle in court only because he has not been honest since the start of this.
Straight up dude. This was not a hate crime. This was you being stupid and not admitting you are wrong crime. Violence is not the answer but neither is stupidty FF.-Dr.FB
