Pop Culture: Favorite Five of the Week


Hey guys! It's been awhile since I've contributed anything to IHJJR, but I got a teensy bit bored this afternoon with my spring semester of grad school winding down and decided to just chat with my MacBook's camera about pop culture. So feel free to listen to me ramble about my favortite five items from pop culture this week. Or don't, I'm basically just dickin around here.

The Hump has the herp? Kris Humphries is being sued by Kayla Goldberg aka a NBA groupie, said the two met at a restaurant then later at a club back in 2010. Said groupie then went home with the Hump and they, well, humped without protection. Five days later, she had symptoms of herpes. Humphries’ rep vehemently denies the allegations, and Kim Kardashian has yet to comment (but you know she’s dyyyyying to say to something).

Enjoy your pop culture recap as a photo montage this week:

What happens in Vegas, never stays in Vegas - ya’ll should know that by now. Prince Harry, or the ginger ninja as I lovingly refer to him, got down and dirty and nakey this past week. He was evidently losing in a game of strip pool with some local talent, which has since sent British media in an uproar. So what…let the guy live!

Hope Solo was accosted by a male dancer…allegedly. In her new memoir, Solo: A Memoir of Hope (really…that is your title?), Solo accuses her Dancing with the Stars partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy of slapping her for screwing up the Charleston or whatever the hell dance moves they do.

She writes:

Say it ain’t so, Joe. Jessica Simpson’s father Joe was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence around 10PM on August 4. Joe (54) was pulled over on Ventura Blvd. in California, booked, and released the next day without having to post bail. No mug shot has been released yet…but I can’t wait to see it.

I'm not sure if the moon is in Venus' third house or what, but there's been a pop culture explosion this week! Also, I'm happy to report that I have nothing to say about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes…for now.

Lady Gaga helps you smell like a hooker. Lady G tweeted a picture of her new Fame fragrance ad this week (pictured left). Besides fashioning a mask, she’s wearing lots of tiny (almost naked) men climbing all over her lady bits.

This week’s post will be short and sweet! Enjoy!

Free Katie. Here’s the latest in the demise of Scientology power-couple, the late great TomKat:

-       She’s fired everyone, from her driver to her bodyguard to her publicist. They gone.

-       The ring’s off. So it’s officially official.

Lots to discuss, let’s jump right in.

RIP Rodney. Rodney King was found dead in his backyard pool early Sunday morning; a presumable drowning, but no cause of death will officially be released until toxicology reports are completed. TMZ is reporting that King’s girlfriend, Cynthia Kelley, witnessed King boozing and smoking marijuana throughout the day and into the night. She was awakened by his screaming around 5am, went outside and found his body lifeless at the bottom of the pool. Paramedics were unable to revive King.
