The Entertation Index: August 12

August 12, 2009

Cook, Dane — The comic recently defended a joke he made about 20 year-old High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens’ recent nude photographs by saying “You gotta keep it classy…mostly I just wanted it to be funny.” You sure are keeping it classy, Dane. Superclassy to make that joke with her in the audience, and even classier to make it at the Teen Choice Awards. Don’t drop your monocle!

Gaga, Lady — If you’re like me, you haven’t been able to sleep at night because you’re so puzzled by the fact that Lady Gaga is suddenly walking around everywhere with a teacup. Whew! Mystery solved! Gaga claims she has given the receptacle such exposure lately because she wanted to “make a statement on fame.” That statement, obviously, is “I am an idiot.”

Herman, Pee Wee — In very cool news, Paul Reubens has announced that he will once again don the grey suit and red bowtie in a limited reprise of the immortal “Pee Wee Herman Show” on stage for a limited run at Hollywood’s Fonda Theater — complete with Jambi, Magic Screen and Randy. I’m so jealous of anyone getting to see this.

Lisa, Mona — A Russian woman, frustrated over her lack of French citizenship status, smuggled a ceramic cup into the Louvre Museum on Tuesday and hurled it at the Mona Lisa. If that’s not weird enough, the following Reuters article also details a man who punched a Monet and a woman who kissed a painting. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to knee Rembrandt’s The Nightwatch in the junk.

Liman, Doug — The Bourne Identity director was a real-world  hero after he came to the rescue of four boaters when their speedboat was crushed by a large cargo ship. The footage of Liman’s daring rescue is expected to feature fast-paced, super-shaky single camerawork and feature Julia Styles as a concert cellist unwittingly pulled into a world of intrigue as she teams with a Hollywood director to prevent a deadly boat crash.
