If you look up narcissism and/or delusion of grandeur in the dictionary…
He’d better pedal a human-powered airship around the world if he wants to avoid looking like a hypocrite.
“I would like to improve the world a bit. I will fly around the world doing good for the environment,” added DiCaprio…
Okay, so Bill Maher gave $1 million to the Obama Super PAC. It takes cult power to get anyone to donate that kind of money to anything, and Maher appears to be a charter member of the cult of Obama. And refusing to accept that donations to the Mormon church are charity is an indictment of charity in general. Most charities are based on or affiliated with religious groups. Why single out Mormons? Why not attack Catholics or any other religious group that has a charitable program? And how would Maher know that Obama is well-endowed or is that just his fantasy? I sense some longing there.
On Thursday, Maher told his audience that the million dollars he was donating was “the wisest investment I think I could make.”
Oh, really. A lot of people who will never make a million dollars over their lifetime would probably disagree. He’s certainly living up to the “CrazyStupid” part of his comedy show. If he has enough money lying around that he can simply toss a million of it away, that says a lot more about his financial priorities than his politics. A fool and his money…
Hip-hop artist and clothing designer Jay-Z is being scrutinized for allegedly profiting off of the Occupy Wall Street Movement. Last week, friend and fellow business mogul, Russell Simmons tweeted a backstage photograph of himself standing next to Jay-Z, who was wearing a T-shirt that read, “Occupy All Streets.”
Fisker is manufacturing these gorgeous Leonardo DiCaprio toys in Finland. And the kicker, for those of you who would still claim that the risk of half a billion tax dollars is justified by environmental gains… contrary to the company’s initial hype, the Karma will only run for thirty-two miles on its electric motors before its turbocharged gasoline engine needs to kick in (as opposed to the initial estimate of fifty miles). Once that occurs, the Karma gets about the same mileage as a Ford Explorer. Not the new Explorer, even. The older, gas-hog, body-on-frame model. We’re talking twenty miles per gallon, folks. So much for your “green investment.”
When Justin Bieber decided to change his hairstyle last February, Jay Foreman was not amused. The founder and CEO of toy manufacturer the Bridge Direct, estimates that Bieber’s small change cost Foreman’s company a big chunk of change, around $100,000.
The French billionaire – who married the Mexican beauty in 2009 – is

Paying tribute, actor-comedian Michael McKean said, “Peter Falk’s assault on conventional stardom went like this: You’re not conventionally handsome, you’re missing an eye and you have a speech impediment. Should you become a movie star? Peter’s correct answer: Absolutely.
… Maybe Letterman didn’t feel comfortable helping Bieber sell perfume in a bottle shaped like lady-parts to tweens…
