The Entertation Index: October 12

October 12, 2009

Coppola, Francis Ford — The Godfather and Apocalypse Now director said, in a recent interview, that he feels that “the cinema as we know it is falling apart.” When pressed for details, Ford added “Although to be fair, the last few films I’ve seen were Paul Blart: Mall Cop, He’s Just Not That Into You and All About Steve.”

Giants, They Might Be — Finally, these guys make the Index, but not as a subject of ridicule. Check out Rolling Stone’s track-by-track guide to the duo’s classic 1989 album Flood and let your freak flag fly for one of the idiosyncratic forefathers of geek rock.

Hudson, Kate — The girlfriends and wives of the New York Yankees have allegedly been asked to stop “trashing” Alex Rodriguez’ main squeeze Kate Hudson after recent gossip about her ended up in the New York Post’s Page Six. In lieu of admitting scathing remarks to the press, the players’ girlfriends and wives have simply started handing out DVD copies of You, Me and Dupree to reporters, which achieves roughly the same effect.

Kiss — To celebrate the release of their new set Sonic Boom, glam-rockers Kiss played The Late Show with David Letterman last week, concluding their larger-than-life performance with Gene Simmons using his famous tongue to lick the host. Ewww. Doesn’t Gene know when he licks Letterman, it’s like he’s licking the faces of all the women who’ve ever worked for Letterman?

T.I. — Rapper T.I., who is currently serving a sentence in an Arkansas penitentiary for a weapons conviction, won two BET awards Saturday — “Best Collaboration” with Rihanna and “Album of the Year” for his release Paper Trail. Accepting the award on his behalf, T.I.’s fiancee took the stage to express the rapper’s thanks, as one trophy would surely score at least two cartons of cigarettes and the other will make a great shiv.

Winehouse, Amy — The dodgy Brit songstress recently checked into a London clinic reportedly to receive a 35,000-pound breast enlargement surger. Pick your joke: a.) how she’ll move with 35,000-pound breasts is a mystery; or b.) Winehouse walked into the doctors and said “make me look like one of those handkerchiefs full of junk on a stick that hobos carry.”
