I’m a pop culture fanatic, and have been for years. But sometimes our friends need a little tough love. And that’s what this blog is all about – pointing out frustrations, foibles and bad decisions from the week in pop culture.
What jumped out at me last week was something from the Las Vegas semi-finals on “So You Think You Can Dance.”
If you’re not familiar with the show, Las Vegas serves the same purpose as Hollywood on “American Idol” – putting contestants who make it past the initial auditions through a grueling week of challenges.
How can we possibly forget Lady Gaga's meat dress? You know, the one she wore to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards.
Whether it was flank steak or thinly sliced brisket sewn together, it was, for her, a pretty conservative outfit. Gaga has some racy costumes, and while she showed a lot of flesh in the Franc Fernandez -Nichola Formichetti designed dress, that time it wasn't her own.
The garment received a lot of press, with some praising its originality while others had a beef with it, including PETA who released this statement:

During a performance of the "Glee Live! In Concert" tour stop in Washington, D.C., co-star Darren Criss took to Twitter after he was yanked off stage following a rousing rendition of Queen's "Somebody to Love."
"To the lady who pulled me off the stage and into the pit tonight: if I ever see you on a stage... keep your wits about ya. Love, Darren!" he tweeted.
Having been cheated on recently, “Millionaire Matchmaker” Patti Stanger has a lot to say about Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner, who recently admitted to sending lewd photographs to women online.

"(It's a) new marriage," Stanger said. "I’m sure she didn’t know."

“Pretty Little Liars’” first season finale left its 3.6 million viewers dumbfounded in their living rooms, willing season 2 to begin.

In a matter of hours, we’ll rejoin Spencer, Aria, Hanna and Emily on their quest for answers regarding their friend Alison’s untimely death. And thanks to the series of inexplicable events that left Ian dangling lifeless in a church bell tower, we have another missing person - or missing body, rather - to investigate.
The third time apparently won't be the charm for Hugh Hefner. The Playboy founder, married twice before, confirmed via Twitter that his 25-year-old fiancée Crystal Harris has called off the couple's impending wedding.
Back in February, Harris was announcing on "Piers Morgan Tonight" that she was all set to marry Hef on June 18. The Playboy Playmate gushed about the wedding details, noting that her best friend and her sisters were on board to be her bridesmaids. "It's going to be fun!" she told Morgan.
But perhaps the nuptials started to look less thrilling. A few days before the ceremony was scheduled to begin at the Playboy Mansion - and right around the time Funny Or Die released a video about the occasion - Harris seems to have opted out.
