Morning Meme: 50 Cent’s “Playground,” Diddy Apologizes, and Method Man’s Candy

Sure, why not. Fox is bringing Mr. Ed to the big screen, complete with CGI for the horse’s mouth.
Because I don’t already hear enough Mr.
Ed
Mr. Edjokes in my daily life.

Meanwhile, Lifetime is eyeing a Lady
Gaga
biopic. Because their core demographic is such big Lady Gaga fans.

I’m a little confused by this report that oral sex may be responsible for more throat cancer than smoking. Since it’s
HPV-related, is that oral sex performed on women? Because if it’s on men, I may
need to call an oncologist.

Entertainment Weekly has an excerpt from 50
Cent’s
children’s book, Playground. I admit to a bit of
curiosity as to how he approaches bullying from the bully’s perspective. Is
there some redemption there? His own life seems to say there isn’t.

Johnny DeppJohnny Depp,
generally so smooth in an interview, has a lot of women’s groups upset.
Speaking to Vanity Fair, he said he doesn’t mind posing with fans, but as for photo shoots, “Well, you just feel like you’re
being raped somehow. Raped … It feels like a kind of weird — just weird,
man.”

A Tennessee high school student says he was assaulted by his principal for wearing a
homemade t-shirt supporting a Gay-Straight Alliance. This is the same school
that threatened to punish students for circulating a petition for a GSA.

Apple is releasing the iPhone 4S on October 14th. It will do a lot
of things your current iPhone won’t do, including a voice activated assistant
and send physical greeting cards. And if you’re me, you’re not
eligible for an upgrade for a full year.

As many of us that were out of work for a while recently suspected,
having mention of anything gay on your resume makes you
less likely to be called in for an interview.

Adele has canceled her U.S. tour due to a hemorrhage on her vocal
cords, which sounds absolutely terrifying.Adele

Remember that Is My
Son Gay?
App for Android I was outraged about? And Whoopi and Joy were
outraged about? And even Google pulled it from Android market? The creator of the app was gay himself, and was using it as
a promotion for his upcoming novel of the same name. So … my bad?

Speaker Boehner has tripled the amount of our tax dollars he’s willing to
pay outside counsel to defend the Defense of Marriage Act. There’s now a $1.5
million cap on how much money they’ll pay Clement to say we’re less than equal
in a court of law, and it’s likely to increase again. I guess government can
create jobs.

We mentioned yesterday that Fox might cancel The
Simpsons
after 23 years, asking the cast to take a The Simpsons45% pay cut. But new
reports say the problem isn’t really the cast, but an old syndication deal that only allows broadcast
stations to run the reruns. If they cancel the series, they can scrap that
agreement and relicense the series, likely to the tune of $750 million or more.
So it’s really just business to them.

Diddy/Puff Daddy/Sean Combs/whoever is apologizing for unleashing a torrent of n-words andCher
f-bombs at a clubgoer who was drinking the wrong vodka at his party, and he
wants people to pray for him. I can’t even begin to explain how many things are
wrong with this entitled asshat.

Just when I think that the National Organization for Marriage can’t sink any lower, they respond to the birth of Rep. Jared Polis’ son with “Rep. Jared Polis Announces With
Pride That His Child Has No Mother.”

Cher will be in the audience for Dancing With the Stars
next week to cheer on her son Chaz. But will they play her music? Think about
it – an all Cher music episode!
