Three feuds, broken down…
If you’ve been away from the news lately, it’s pretty contentious out there. People are striking and striking back. Feuds are brewing or just recently ended. (Sure there’s a war on and we’re after terrorists and the economy is in the tank but hey… sometimes you need a break. Haha) Here they are from most current on back:
Perez Hilton vs the Black Eyed Peas
Perez Hilton has a celebrity (bashing) website and he had some pretty unkind words about the Black Eyed Peas. First Fergie went up to Hilton at some venue and asked if he had a problem with her. He says He didn’t like the album. The BEPs felt it was right to have an opinion but not to be so blatantly rude about it. Later at another club, band member will.i.am and the BEP manager ran into Hilton, words were exchanged and apparently Hilton got hit.
Arnoldcam reaction: Haha.
Hilton says: If he were a woman, the outcry of violence done by one person to another would be overwhelming. Violence never has a place in civil society.
BEPs: Basically… he had it coming.
Arnoldcam bottom line: Hilton is right. Violence has no place in civil society. What complicates things is the victim of violence is not usually the provoker. Verdict: Draw… Harm and foul.
Sarah Palin vs David Letterman
First off, Sarah Palin goes to New York, sees a baseball game with a daughter and David Letterman jokes “One awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game. During the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez” . The joke, in our opinion, was kinda funny but not a big deal. Dave’s a comedian and he makes jokes about people in the news… Alex Rodriguez has been involved in a lot of how you say… extra curricular activities other than baseball and there’s only one Palin daughter that’s famous for getting knocked up. Trouble is, Sarah actually brought her 14 year old daughter. The Palins say Dave was advocating underage rape (Their word). Dave apologizes. Sarah accepts but she/various others say it wasn’t enough and he should be fired.
Arnoldcam reaction: Oh come on.
Bottom line: Dave, it was a chuckle but not a great joke. Sarah, you’ve been pissed at Dave for a campaign season’s worth of jokes and playing the rape card was an attempt at payback. Basically, no watcher of the feud changed sides and both involved benefited from the publicity. Another draw.
Clay Aiken vs Adam Lambert
Clay Aiken has a blog. Adam Lambert wails. Clay Aiken says Adam’s singing makes his ears bleed.
“The former American Idol contestant said that listening to this season’s runner-up made him think that his “ears would bleed”, Access Hollywood reports.
“I happened to turn it on during the minute that Adam Lambert was singing ‘Ring Of Fire’…Contrived, awful and slightly frightening,” Aiken wrote on his website.” – E online
Arnoldcam reaction: (spoken like Jack MacFarland) Listen to her!
Bottom line: What can I say? Aiken’s right.
