Ostracize them forever

I hope someone covers this casting call to remind us who should be avoided. MTV is also apparently looking to Occupy Wall Street for their cast of the Real World. In what seems to be a casting call posted on Craigslist, MTV said it is looking for people between 20- and 24 years old and asking anyone taking part in the anti-Wall Street movement who is interested to contact them.

The chick from ‘Just One of the Guys’ salutes lip-syncing Disney product

D-List drag queen Lady Gaga, looking suspiciously like Terry (“dresses like Elvis Costello, looks like the Karate Kid”) from the 1985 gender-bending classic “Just One of the Guys,” was the big winner of the MTV Awards last night. The prep school graduate also took time out to honor an legend, an “icon” who, according to Elvis Macchio, “taught us all how to be fearless.” Thank you, Britney Spears, for showing us the way. If not for your bravery, we would’ve missed out on another manufactured personality embraced by fame-hungry whores and gullible homosexuals.

Pointless year in review presents … 2010’s most unwelcome rehabilitation

And worst example of entertainment media puffery: With a three-minute booty-shakin’ performance, the actor himself officially ended the era of Tom Cruise bashing. Oprah’s couch? Scientology? The eyepatch in ‘Valkyrie’? Fuhgeddaboudit! Cruise became definitively cool again with his live appearance, complete with swaggerific undone bow-tie and J-Lo as his dance partner. No thanks.

Next, on ‘The Real JAP’s of Hymietown’ …

I finally endured about 15 minutes of “The A-List,” a truly wretched new reality show about callow gay Mahattanites. Stepin Fetchit eating a watermelon outside a fried chicken shack would only be a tad less offensive. If I lived in Kansas and popular entertainment provided my only exposure to gays, I’d hate us, too. Yet most in the expanding acronym community remain unmoved. The Petty Queer Establishment may not be directly involved in the production of such images, but they routinely commend them. “It is with great pride that GLAAD honors MTV with our highest mark of excellence in recognition of the…

The Petty Queer Establishment strikes again

“It is with great pride that GLAAD honors MTV with our highest mark of excellence in recognition of the network’s commitment to fair and accurate representation of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community,” said GLAAD president Jarrett Barrios in a statement. If the token gay guy from whatever season’s “The Real World” is “an accurate representation” of the community, we’re in worse trouble than I feared.

The Evil Empire caves to fundamentalist thugs

America’s media conglomerates have zero balls (and fewer principles). None is more soulless than Viacom, which has once again bowed to the threats of extremist gasbags. On Thursday morning, a spokesman for Comedy Central confirmed that the network had added more bleeps to the episode than were in the cut delivered by South Park Studios, and that it was not giving permission for the episode to run on the studio’s Web site. Among the bleeps: any reference to the “Prophet Mohammed.” I shouldn’t be surprised. This is the company that owns MTV, responsible for the most nihilistic programming in the history of…

from the network responsible for “my super sweet 16″

Chris Brown & Rihanna: Love in Trouble airs tonight at 6 ET/PT. MTV News is promoting the program by noting it has “gathered journalists, industry professionals and other experts — as well as an in-studio audience of young fans — to provide insight and commentary about what the incident means for both artists’ careers and lives, and society in general.” No one does insight and commentary quite like the Evil Empire.

mtv is evil, cont’d

Sullen emo (goth with less mascara and more fluid sexuality) girl and her Barbie doll mother don’t get along. Fake-tittied mom can’t understand; she’s just trying to look young so she can hang with her daughter. Besides, doesn’t she give her little princess everything she wants? After much manufactured angst, emo chick learns (is manipulated) to accept her mother for who she is. They go shopping on Melrose before a final, awkward hug. They’re a strained mix of pastels and darks — giggles and groans — but both represent influential demographic groups that spend a lot of money. If I’m to understand…

mtv has scientology’s back

Earlier this summer, the network attempted to rehabilitate Tom Cruise’s career on the MTV movie awards: Is it just us or did Tom Cruise come across as massively sane, funny, and um almost cool tonight? Maybe it was the moment when we saw Tom chatting up “Tropic Thunder” buddy Ben Stiller. Or maybe it was when Katie Holmes sweetly wished him “good luck”before he made his way to the big stage. One of our favorite moments surely came when we saw Tom backstage with Sarah Jessica Parker. She practically looked like she was meeting royalty. Now the host of the upcoming Video…
