Alec Baldwin and the Creator of “My Name is Earl” Don’t Play Nice

September 9, 2008

So, Alec Baldwin feels like NBC hasn’t done enough to publicize his show 30 Rock, which is too bad, because it’s the funniest and most clever sitcom on TV right now.  So, Alec Baldwin’s mad, right and he’s all…

“NBC hasn’t done a thing to help this show (’30 Rock’). They’ve gone out of their way to wring the last drops out of ‘My Name Is Earl’ and ‘Scrubs.’ Those shows are done! They’re cooked! Yet they do a one-hour episode of ‘Earl.'”

Well, Greg Garcia, creator of My Name is Earl is like so pissed, right?  Well, he’s all like..

“(Baldwin) sounds like a psychotic narcissist. Instead of blaming NBC, I think Alec should consider that some people in America may not want to watch a man who cusses out his own 11-year-old daughter on a phone message. Oh, and the reason NBC occasionally puts on an hour long episode of ‘Earl’ is because an hour of ‘Earl’ gets better ratings than an ‘Earl’ followed by a ’30 Rock.’ It’s called math, stupid.”

So then, Alec Baldwin is probably encouraged by his publicist to make amends, so he issues a half-hearted apology/low blow  that ranks quite high in the history of  back handed apologies.

My apologies to the cast and crews of My Name Is Earl and Scrubs. In my frustration with NBC’s reprehensible promotion of 30 Rock, I took an unfortunate swipe at both of those shows and that was not cool.

But, for Earl’s creator, Greg Garcia, who referred to me as a “psychotic”, I have only one question. Why are you Scientologists always rendering these medical opinions you aren’t qualified to give?

I chuckle when celebs, who are usually muzzled by agents/studios, throw it down and show how they really feel.

Jay Z at Glastonbury Festival 2008, UK

July 1, 2008

Jay Z caught some flack when it was announced he’d headline the Glastonbury Festival 2008 in the UK. Oasis member Noel Gallagher wasn’t pleased a hip hop act would be added to the historically rock-oriented festival.

“If it ain’t broke don’t fix it,” he said. “If you start to break it then people aren’t going to go. I’m sorry, but Jay-Z? No chance.

“Glastonbury has a tradition of guitar music and even when they throw the odd curve ball in on a Sunday night you go ‘Kylie Minogue?’ I don’t know about it. But I’m not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. It’s wrong.”

So, naturally Jay Z kicks off his set at Glastonbury by covering Oasis’ “Wonderwall” before launching into “99 Problems.”

Ice T and Soulja Boy will not be exchanging Christmas cards this year

June 20, 2008

Ice T, a rap icon, and self-described O.G. (Original Gangsta) had this to say about Souljah Boy (a soon to be forgotten flash in the pan)

“Fuck Soulja Boy! Eat a dick! This ni–a single handedly killed Hip Hop. That shit is such garbage man. We came all the way from Rakim, we came all the way from Das EFX, we came all the way from motherfuckers flowing like Big Daddy Kane and Ice Cube, and you come with that Superman shit? That shit is garbage. Hurricane (Chris) take them fuoking beads out of your hair ni–a! Man up. You ni–as is making me feel real fucking mad about this shit.”

– Ice T on the sad state of rap music

NSFW language, listen to Ice T slam Soulja Boy

And Soulja Boy makes an even bigger jackass out of himself by rambling on for almost 8 minutes and saying not much more than repeatedly calling Ice T old.

And using the word “nigga” still seems perfectly acceptable in the rap world. Souljah Boy’s response is also full of NSFW language…and you’ll probably find yourself much dumber for listening.
