Pop Culture and Celebrity Confusions

I need help understanding the following phenomena:


Big Brother After Dark: I regretted watching 15 minutes of this live video feed of a bunch of plotting housemates eating, talking and scratching their nether regions. Can anybody tell me why Showtime wants to stream this on their network?

The Kardashians: Why is the media so fascinated with a bunch of untalented albeit attractive “women” who date athletes? And now, they’ve got a clothing line at Sears.

I really need help on this one as I just want to gag myself with a ladle every time I see their picture. I thought Paris Hilton was bad enough with her “That’s Hot” thing, but seriously … aside from T n A what is the Kardashian appeal? I mean if people want to ogle at body parts aren’t there more interesting specimens to look at … such as … perhaps …

At least Christina Hendricks can "act" and she's got the T n A.

Justin Beiber’s Pants: That kid would be in trouble if he suddenly had to do a sprint. It’s a good thing the Bieb wears boxers or he could get arrested for indecent exposure of juvenile private parts. He looks like he forgot to hike up his bottoms after taking a pee …

Marilyn Manson: I just don’t understand why a guy who looks like a corpse:

Can get chicks who look like this:

Is it his charm, the size of his schlong or his twit wit?

If you can shed some light to the above confusions please leave a comment. I’d really like to know.

    KKK…Khloe, Kim & Kourtney I too was baffled at their fame. Then my girlfriend explained their fame to me an i also found this blog (http://www.worldoffemale.com/top-10-celebrities-famous-for-no-good-reason/). Those celebrities are called CFNGR (Celebrities For No Good Reason)

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      What was her explanation?

    • They are ex-Olympic star Bruce Jenner’s stepchildren. That is the one and only reason they have any cachet whatsoever. And, come on, Bruce frickin’ JENNER? He was in, like the 1972 Olympics or something. I think he was a diver or a swimmer.

      Americans will whack off at anything or anyone hinting of celebrity. LOVE your pic of Christina Hendricks – it’s nice to see a REAL WOMAN (curves and no ribs showing) on TV.

      Marilyn Manson is too freaky – can’t even go there!! Love, Amy

  2. Ugly Shoelace says:

    Haha! Bieber is a freak :/.

    It took me thirty seconds to realize what T & A mean :/

    • Lafemmeroar says:


      He’s a good looking kid, and apparently he can sing. The kiddies love him … now if he can only pull up his pants. Boggles my mind how his parents let him out of the house dressed like that.

      • hollyjb says:

        When I saw him at work he seemed awkward…I didn’t spend time gawking (that would’ve been dumb) and I was actually busy, but from what my co-worker said he went racing across the parking lot once he was done eating. There was literally no one there, Sunday morning and all. Stratford isn’t that much of a happening place! Who was he trying to avoid?

        • Lafemmeroar says:

          Was this Justin Beiber or Marilyn Manson?

          • hollyjb says:

            Oh sorry, Justin Beiber, lol. I don’t know why, but Marilyn Manson scares me. He wears more make-up then I do. Not that there’s anything wrong with make-up if you’re into that. I think the only MM song I know is Beautiful People (if that’s even the title, and if that’s even his song) and I get a sore throat when I hear it b/c I don’t like screaming music :S.

            • Holly, I am SO with you on Manson, just grotesque. And poor Justin, trying to prove his “creds” with the little pasty white bits of back upper thigh hanging out in that picture. One thing I’m sure of: Justin is, like, SO STRAIGHT! A pic of him with some girl had an amazing tell: He was sort of peck-kissing her and his hand was on her thigh, but his other hand, behind her, was all bunched up like he didn’t feel comfortable with the deal at all. I’m really not about “outing” people; I simply wish they were not ashamed to be who they were born to be. Amy

              • hollyjb says:

                I try to stay away from all things Beiber…I only listen to his music when I have to (ie when it was on Glee). Otherwise I get the d**m things stuck in my head in a bad way, lol.

  3. theladyinredink says:

    Does Marilyn still have his boobs? IDK. I’ve always been fascinated by his music, but he’s not a particularly attractive/charming/intriguing guy. Except for the fact that he had boobs. Like in the nineties, before it was cool to be a drag queen and/or transvestite.

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      OMG, I thought those boobs were some kind of prosthetic … we they implants? Double OMG … if that’s the case lol

      • Zoe says:

        Okay, haha, His boobs are fake. They were part of his alien like skin – it’s a suit! He doesn’t have boobs! He’s a pretty normal dude with extraordinary talent – sexy in my opinion, although not my type.

        Now, the Bieb thing … Can’t stand the kid. I wonder if he knows that that saggy pants thing was started in prisons to let the other inmates know who was available to be a bitch and who wanted it up the yoohoo… 🙂
        Probably not.
        As always, Thanks for the provoking topics! 🙂

        • Lafemmeroar says:


          Are you serious about the pants? OMG OMG OMG … well I love my readers because I’m always learning something new. I’m really going to have to Google this topic ’cause it might make an interesting post.

  4. kdaddy23 says:

    I wish I knew; we have this fascination with celebrities that amazes me and, apparently, TV thinks it’s a great idea to be all up in their business with all these stupid reality shows that, in my opinion, takes away from the illusion of being more than just a regular person. Even worse, more and more celebs are coming with their own reality shows… like anyone gives a fuck what they do when they’re not doing their jobs? I know I don’t…

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      I think reality shows are one way untalented celebs can make a living by showcasing the diarrhea that is their life. I have a love/hate with reality shows (unless it’s The Real L Word–love that show for some reason).

  5. Cinnamon says:

    Well, I certainly hope that you bought that ladle at Sears ! LOL As far as that Beiber kid? Well, if he EVER came around me I would yank his jeans down and sic my dogs on him. They wouldn’t bite him, just lick him to death while he tried to get those jeans up. What IS IT with those kids and the pants?

  6. The T says:

    omg…the “mad men” girl….i so want her…and her sister…and her cousin… the only girl out of the kardashian’s would be the little tiny one..the one who is always out the fray…..OMG I just realized..she is the cousin of them …. I’m an effing bad man since she’s like what….18? bad, bad tommy… ish..

    oh and yeah, i meant the ish…


  7. hollyjb says:

    I had something like this is one of my posts, but I like yours better, lol. I honestly would love to perform for a living. But the idea of being famous really puts me off. I’m not trying to claim that everyone would be all up in my grill or anything (:P), just if it did happen I would probably become a hermit, hide out in some cave or foresty dwelling far enough north in Ontario that you need a plane to get there. I like my privacy too much to even want to think about being famous. I don’t understand why these people want everyone to know everything about them and why people want to know this stuff! I’m guilty of it to a certain degree, but I have better things to do with my time thank you very much.

    Also, I think I heard somewhere that Kim K actually gets paid a ridiculous amount of money for every time she tweets. That’s messed up right there.

  8. –I can’t comment.
    The Kardashians make me gag. Puke. Yuck. I have just lost brain power by looking
    at the photo.
    But my boobs got a bit larger. :)))))

  9. todaysworkingwoman says:

    I refer to some of these as car accidents on the side of the road. You know the ones where you have to slam on your breaks and sit in bumper to bumper traffic for hours because everyone has to stop and gawked at it while they drive past. It’s the kind of thing that is just so unbelievable that it holds your interest in a strangely perverse way. I could add a few more to the list: Toddlers & Tiaras, Manolo Blahnik shoes, and The Twilight series of movies/books. My response to all of these is “You’re kidding me, right?”

    • Lafemmeroar says:


      I think these “car accidents” started with the Springer show … what do you think? I like the way you put it: “it holds your interest in a strangely perverse way”

  10. Maxim says:

    Justin Beiber looks like you caught him taking a poop.

  11. karenoia says:

    Kristina Hendricks is everything sexy women were but were too scared to be and had to change. She doesn’t try to be skinny or altered or fake. Her teeth are real. She is so hot she sizzles. The French have this expression. Something like bien dans sa Peau. Good in her skin. She just sits in that skin hot as a steaming baked potato. Dumb isn’t sexy. Vapid isn’t sexy. Just boring. Unless you are chicken shit scared man/boy. I’m not sure I’m adding much here but IMO bieber is a girl. Don’t get that at all.
    I love mad men for that memory of where women were as symbols to where they are now…..maybe something more to blog on there hum……
    Loved your post. Good fodder.

    • Lafemmeroar says:


      I just saw her on the movie “Drive” and she did a good job playing a thief. She looks different than the skinny minis out there … she just looks more au natural.

    • You totally have my vote. My daughter is in love with her, and, even though I’m straight, I can see the attraction! She’s the type of woman I wanted to grow up and look like. SO REAL.

      And I agree about Mad Men in general. The character of Peggy – can’t wait to see where they go with her. Will she get experimental with her “out” girlfriend? Will she learn to tell men to use condoms?

      SMART is the key to sexy, in my opinion. Well done, Karenoia! Amy Barlow Liberatore (CCC member)

  12. The T says:

    wait…are you getting paid to pee? apparently I’m not doing something right here…


  13. Jodi Lea says:

    I wish I had an explanation for you. Many times I have asked “Why are those girls famous?”, “Are they triplets?”, and “What did they ever actually do??” No one seems to know. And all I have to say about Justin Beiber is that he is a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen.

  14. I love that people like Paris Hilton and the Kardashians are called “Personalities” not “stars” or “singers” or “actresses.” The people you show (and those you didn’t like Charlie Sheen) are like car accidents on the road. The masses are rubber-neckers who can’t help themselves from looking to see what’s going on just in case someone talks about it. Then they can say, “Yeah, I saw it too.”

    That’s the only explanation I can come up with. It’s irrational and a rational explanation just doesn’t work!

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      You said it Lorna. I’m a digital rubbernecker. When Sheen’s name comes up on Yahoo I just have to click the link to see his shenanigans. If it’s Lindsay Lohan I know she’s either in jail, house arrest or in court.

  15. Deborah the Closet Monster says:

    Oh, man. I wish I could explain them, or (in some cases) the phenomenon whereby some people are compelled to give them recurring audience.


  16. jsh0608 says:

    I watched BBAD!!! But stopped after half of the houseguets were gone. It was not interesting and I can find out when I watched it on Wed, Thu, and Sun. (and my dvr was getting filled up fast) I am defintely a BB addict. I can’t stand watching people eat or the sound of food being chewed, so I didn’t watch when there was nothing but that sound. It just grosses me. I ABSOLUTELY adore Jeff and Jordan, by FAR the best ‘contestants’ EVER. :0) About the others. No comment, because then this comment will never end. :0)

  17. scrambled7 says:

    God I hate that Kardashians show.

  18. Aurora says:

    Right there with you on not understanding any of the mass psyche control BS… holy… Sheeple, as David Icke says, “you have a mind, use it. Or I’ll shave you and make a coat out of you.” Love him. On that note, I want to let you know I do understand how cool YOU are.

    That’s why I nominated you for Versatile Blogger (as detailed in piece on my blog) as one of my faves! From what I can gather, it’s about having fun sharing blogs we like/disover and gaining more readership in the process. So hope you have some fun with it, LFR.

    (well… at least I had good intentions, didn’t I, LOL)

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      Thank you so much Aurora. I consider you one of my best blogging friends. I love reading your blog … you have a way of turning the tragic into an insightful and witty observation about the reality of life and for that I truly love and appreciate your blog. You have sweetness and light in your soul crazy chick 🙂

  19. totsymae1011 says:

    You know, the Kardashians have really made reality show famous in a new way. I saw Kim at an awards show presenting and I don’t know why but I felt sorry for her being among all those people who had talent.

  20. Jason says:

    I remember when there was a rumor that Marilyn Manson was actually the kid that played Paul on The Wonder Years. I wish that would have been true.

  21. Shonnie says:

    Sadly, I am afraid that I am just as lost as you are–quite confused. those pants??? I don’t much care for “reality” TV — makes my brain hurt.

  22. Patti Kuche says:

    Great post with some very deep, probing questions here LFR!

    I want to know why I get queasy when I see photos of KK, the Kim one, with her very tall (athletic) husband – I am confused as to which one has the growth problem. As for the gorgeous Christina Hendricks, have you seen her husband? So if Brian Warner asked you out on a date, would you go . . . ?

    • Lafemmeroar says:


      lol on the growth spurts–his are “up” and hers protrudes …
      I’d have to pass on “Brian Warner” there are just some things I can’t get past … such as make-up and fake man boobs. I’ve seen Christina Hendricks and all I can say is that it has to be a “love match.” Love is a phenomenon that cannot be explained.

      • I can’t understand fake WOMAN boobs. Hey, I got no rack, but as my hub says, “More than a champagne glassful is superfluous”!!!

        • Lafemmeroar says:

          I have friends who have fake boobs and once they get them, they can’t wait to show if off even to other chicks (like me). They were like (lifts up top) hey look at my new tits … I once poked a friends new boob and it was hard as stone. She said it would soften and hang lower in time. So, in that sense, fake boobs are similar to real boobs … gravity will always prevail.

  23. I’m happy that they are so successful, but how ever much success they gain, its all because of a sex tape. I would be so embarrassed to come out of the house if everyone saw my goodies!lol

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      When I think of sex tapes and these young chicks I always think “oh the horror of the parents.” You know … in life we can never repay our parents for their love, devotion and generosity. The only thing we can do is to do our best not to humiliate them.
