Your pop culture cheat sheet

Here's what's going on in the world of entertainment this morning:

  • Kanye West might have a chance to explain himself on the much-hyped premiere of "The Jay Leno Show." He is still scheduled to perform on the show tonight, according to The New York Times.
  • Tina Fey's now-legendary impression of Sarah Palin earned her an Emmy over the weekend, USA Today reports. Another big winner at the Creative Arts Primetime Emmys was Justin Timberlake for Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, also for "Saturday Night Live."
  • Variety reports that Jeffrey Dean Morgan ("Watchmen," "Grey's Anatomy") is in talks to join the cast of "Red Dawn," the remake of the 1984 cult classic.
  • Robert Redford's next film, "The Conspirator," now has two stars attached: James McAvoy ("Wanted") and Robin Wright Penn, according to Variety. The movie follows the events after the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.
  • Poet and musician Jim Carroll has died, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Carroll's best known work is "The Basketball Diaries," which was made into a movie starring Leonardo diCaprio in 1995.

    Kanye (Toolbox) West is a totally bad mannered looser. What he did to Taylor Swift was unforgiveable.. To do something like he did does not take guts, only pure stupidity. He should be boycotted from all forms of entertainment. Jay Leno please show us you are a good man and kick his butt off your show. I am tossing out all of his CD"s A.S.A.P!!!!!!!

    Sorry Kanye just like Chris Brown, Your out of my families music collection. We boycott you and Chris, you do not appreciate what God has given you. A gift to sing and entertain. We will not buy or listen to you. Jay Leno has nothing to do with this, I will watch Jay, but I won't watch the segment you are in As for Taylor Swift continue to share your gift with us. Now you have something new to sing and write about....MAKE THIS ONE YOUR BEST YET ...........Right is right, wrong is wrong. Kanye West you were so wrong.......Unforgivable, so don't bother to apologize. There's no excuse for such bad behavior, especially for an adult.
    Oh and Keep showing us your boos and bad behavior, it's a good lesson to our children.....!!!!

    For those who do not get it, one comment summed it up nicely "It was like stepping on a kitten". It deserves shame and Kanye should not be permitted to profit from this act (just as offenders are not permitted to profit from their crime).

    The actions of Taylor and Beyonce in response to this shows that class is not dead. And the outrage and backlash by thousands is hopefully a sign to this industry that there IS a "too far". Reading most of these responses, it gives hope that this society is putting their foot down and drawing a line and insisting on a level of professionalism and decency.

The people in our country really need to get a grip! He has done stuff like this time and time again.....enough is enough already pull the plug on his tail! He is not a child he did not make a mistake that he can say "sorry" for! He made a 'CHOICE' to act like an ass and should be treated as such!

Whoever will not watch Leno because Kanye will be on tonight, turn the channel. If you was a real Kanye fan, not a fair-weather fan that purchased one album long time ago, you would not turn on him.

    Are you people serious? Last nights incident really isn't this deep. He made a mistake nobody's perfect. It doesn't even make sense Beyonce won video of the year but lost best female video, really? Kanye was right saying what he said, just did it at the wrong time. It was disrespectful but it's karma it will come back to him. I like Kanye and thought it was sorta funny, no one takes the MTV awards all that seriously anyway. If any of you are so mad about what happened last night that you'd actually boycott Jay Leno or it's honestly making you mad then you need to get a life focus on it and stop worrying abut what entertainers do! Cause you know what last night was entertaining and thats what they get paid to do. Oh and one last thing boycotts are usually reserved for things of importance like civil rights, equal rights or to save a life not rudeness. Grow up!

    Now that Kanye is finally awake and is head is pounding from being intoxicated the night before, and he is probably looking for more alcohol to wash away the pain of his conscience, I would like to review his stupidity and urge him into rehabilitation.
    First you got drunk before an awards ceremony. Second, you showcased your stupidity, crudeness and racism in front of America and the world. Third, you hurt your industry - the same industry that made you rich. Forth, gave more ammunition to other racists in America. Fifth, you hurt a person so much better than yourself. Your apology was empty. And sixth, you created a seen that makes many sick to our stomach. Get help, for you have become the joke of humanity.

    All of you idiots saying "Oh he was just using his 1st amendment right." or "Everyone has the right to their own opinion" are completely WRONG.

    Yes, everyone does have the right to voice their own opinion. NO ONE has the right to infringe upon anyone else's right to free speech (Kanye infringed upon Taylor's right to speak).

    What's funny is the same people that are defending Kanye probably HATE Joe Wilson for calling President Obama a liar. Joe Wilson and Kanye West did the SAME THING, yet people want to defend Kanye. I really don't understand. I don't know when interrupting a young girl to say an opinion became okay (what happened to gentlemen?).

    What's funny is that Beyonce ended up winning the very award Kanye said she should've won. (Best Video of the Year) That's why they gave Taylor best Female Video b/c they KNEW that Beyonce would win the big award. Way to put your foot in your mouth A-Hole.

    Kanye actions reminded me of Joe Wilson's disgraceful outburst and both acted like uncivilized hoodlums! They both should be ashamed of themselves. They both should be punished one way or another so it sends the message that this self absorbed, erratic behaviour is not acceptable from an elected official, or a famous singer.

    There was probably a really interesting converation in Beyonce'/Jay Z limo ride. He who helped further Kanye's fledgling career, and she who showed great poise and humility in forsaking the humiliation that he certainly didn't feel in his interruption, but Taylor Swift did. No matter whether of not you are a 19 year old or 99 you be allowed to be gracious and accept an award when presented to you without interruption, unless it is the timekeeper. Kanye West is absent of humility and his apology is in my opinion not sincere. The best way to address someone like Mr West is not even say his name at all.

    You people are killing me. First, let me say that what Kanye West did was amusing, but unacceptable as Swift was degraded. However, how is this getting more attention than what Joe Wilson did to Obama. That's a more important issue than some celebrity crap. The hypocrisy. Oh yeah and to all you Kanye haters (I'm no fan of him) , it's his right as an American citizen to spew his opinion. Deal with it. It's in the constitution... right?

    "Vivian, The VMA knew what they were getting from Kanye when they invited him on their show. They need the ratings and Kanye always deliver. VMA knew that he was going to do that, if they didn’t, why a country singer? Why they didn’t pick on Slim Shady or any other rock bad or Lady GaGa? Because being a Southern singer at a Northern liberal Award Show is not cool if you are from the south/country. Taylor Swift walked right into that one.

    But still do not give Kanye the right to act the way he did"

    You are damn skippy! MTV loves ratings at any cost. That's why they asked the controversial Russell Brand to host again after his comments last year about the Jonas brothers. I mean seriously, are we that naive to not know when something is staged or planned. If people didn't react then celebrities wouldn't pull these stunts. Look at all the buzz that this has generated. Honestly, without the Kanye stunt I don't think anyone would really be talking about the VMAs. Next year more people will watch to see what happens.

    Serena and Kanye are 2 different cases that happened the same day.

    Kanye was drunk; not an excuse. He apologized for it and we can move on. We all know this type of stupidity happens year round with him. I hope Jay Leno does not cancel him, but roasts the hell out of him. And according to the New Format of the Jay Leno show, Jay can ask or say to him whatever he wants. Thankfully, Beyonce was able to let Taylor thank everyone, and now we can move on and watch the re-runs like normal people. Kanye is a douchbag, but I still like his music, not him... his music.

    Serena was pissed off; she didn't come out and apologize for saying that she would shove a tennis ball down the refs throat or for approaching her, menacingly with a tennis raquet. But as we know with all athletes somethings just tick you off and nothing will hold you back. As far as everything else is concerned with Serena, we have all loved her... up to this point, so we can give her a break this one time. I don't think she get angry all that often.

    So for now. No boycotting or calling of names, we all get drunk, angry, rambuncious, flippant etc. For Celebrities that do this, hit em where it hurts (like all punishments) and give them a Hefty fine.

    Kanye was wrong for what he did but there is something called freedom of speech. No one cares about his "drunken" opinion but he has a right to say what he wants. (HE IS A GROWN MAN WITH $$$$$$$) He just needs to learn the appropriate time and manner. His race has nothing to do with his actions. Obviously not, because Beyonce is black and she graciously let Taylor finish her speech. Jay Leno is going to get sky high ratings tonight because Kanye is going on his show. Everyone wants to know why he did what he did and the ones saying they will not watch it or liars. I know I will be posted to the TV. Besides I will not let Jay Leno suffer for Kanye actions.

  37. A Kanye Fan

    As a fan of Kanye West it was so disappointing to see him act in such a way. I thought after his mother's passing, losing his fiancee, and his short-lived newfound humility that this stage in his life has passed. The warning signs went up when I saw him with Amber Rose, and now this. Kanye wants to be the greatest, but he never will be with antics like this. The George Bush statement was sadly understandble, but this was completely and totally inappropriate and without class. This is the lowest point of his career.

    It's sure easy for all of you to criticize Kanye so harshly. Kanye is an extremely artistically opinionated person, and if i thought that one of my good friends had a way better music video(which artistically, it was) then i would probably would have done something similar. Don't get me wrong, he should have waitied until the show was over(since she ended up winning best video of the year) and it was a total D-Bag move, but it could have been A LOT worse. How about Serena Williams threatening a line judge at a much more prominent and respectable event? I don't hear people complaining about that. Plus, how many of us have done something stupid while intoxicated? If your not raising your hand, then your not human.

    I was actually shocked that Taylor Swift won, because hers was one of the videos that showed the least amount of SKIN. All of the ladies that were nominated are talented, but we still haven't broken out of the mindset that you have to flash the goods in order to be noticed. That's sad. Wasn't planning on watching Jay anyway, but really – is anyone shocked that this happened? I hope Kanye gets the help – rehab or mental ward (if he was sober) that he needs. Props to both women.

  67. Not So Surprised Observer

    People might consider reading a bit MORE into this than what is on the surface. Think about it, this incident with West's anti-social beharvoir did not emerge from a vacuum.....a slice of our "popular culture" sometimes totally ignores basic values (respect others even if they have something you wish you had and don't or respecting others even are different in culture and background from you)...and instead goes ahead and glorifies virtually anything regardless of whether it can hurt others for sake of $$-money or attention.

    This incident really isn't all that surprising and we shouldn't surprised if it doesn't drive his profile and popularity up to an even higher degree as a result of his childlike, little tiny kindergarten kid behaivoir. And reasons for that fact are described in the paragraph above.

    Advice for Mr. West.
    (KAYNE WEST.....HOW ABOUT ACTING YOUR AGE....FOR THE SAKE OF THOSE WHO OBSERVE YOU OR ADMIRE YOU...KIDS OFTEN MIMIC THE ACTIONS OF THOSE THEY IDOLIZE...THINK ABOUT IT KAYNE)

This young girl has to live with this for the rest of her life. Her "joy" was taken from her with no fault of her own. Instead of associating this to race...do something about it. Write MTV and demand that they ban him from ever attending their show again! Be productive, not ignorant!

    What Kanye West did was in bad taste but he did say he was happy for Taylor Swift and didnt seem to intentially disrespect her. He knows Beyonce personally and obviously knows how much work she puts into everything. Not to take anything away from Taylor Swift but her video was a rip-off of a movie starring Hillary Duff..

    I think he could have picked a better time to say what he said but it shouldn't stop anyone from listening to his music. Some of you forgive murderers and theives but because he is a rapper he shouldn't be forgiven. Really get a life. MTV loves stuff like this. They probably paid him extra to do that. Or you going to stop watching MTV? The answer is no. You're going to watch and see what happens next. I think some of you people need Jesus. Forgive one another. By the way, he didn't even do anything to any of you. The only person who should be upset is Taylor Swift. If she is a christian she'll forgive him.

Although I disagree with his actions, he is totally correct. Taylor Swift should not have won for best female video. Lady GAGA or Beyonce should have won. But politics always takes precedence over quality. And by the way, that comment about kanye's actions is why BUSH hates black people. Re-itterates why people like you need to be put on a secluded island, because you closed minded racist pig do not deserve to breathe the same air with the rest of individuals.

    So, Kanye has the nerve to interrupt the acceptance speech of a 19-year old singing phenom, whom happened to be accepting her first MTV music award. I'm sure Ms. Swift has dreamed about that moment all her life, and it was ruined by that idiot. Kanye wouldn't have the cojones to do that had Pink or Lady Gaga won. He would've ended up with his jaw wired shut for the second time in his life. Leno will use this as a ratings boost, but I will not watch tonight's show. Kanye doesn't deserve the publicity or the notoriety. He's a washed-up hack. Hear that Kanye?

    Kanye is a thug loser – whether this hype before his appearance on Jay Leno's premiere was calculated (probably) or a result of alcoholic over-indulgence paired with a narcissitic behavioral disorder – it's simply inexcussable behavior. By anyone. Period. Leno's got his media buzz for the premiere, now he can do the class thing, take the high road and cancel Mr. West. Team Taylor! Team Beyonce!

Beyonce's expression didnt seem that "shocked" or upset. She had a guilty grin like she knew it was coming. Then to make herself appear to be an "angel" she allowed Taylor to finish her speech. If anything, she should've called Gayanye out about his rude behavior and distance herself from the fool but again to make herself look good, not Taylor, she allowed her to complete her speech.

  164. Kanye -Serena -Wilson outbursts

    Let me start of by saying I love Leno - One of the more charismatic talk show hosts of today.

    Obviously Leno is using this as a tactic to get ratings in for his new show. A great strategy on his part but I wish he had invited Taylor swift instead. Unfortunately, we are to blame since most of us will be watching it to help boost ratings if he do still intend to invite Kanye to his show opener.

    I personally listen to a lot of Kanye's music but his latest antic just adds to my personal opinion that his ego is gettng the best of him it needs to be placed back in perspective. I personally will be boycotting his music in my own little way. If you really want to do something you can boycott his music for 1 year too 😉 or in your own small way too.

    I was skimming through posts and saw someone post about Serena and Wilson outbursts... I guess you must have read the other CNN article about these outbursts. I just don’t have the time to create a video of my opinion to respond to it.

    I personally think that people’s behavior like in the most recent episodes of Kanye’s and Wilson’s should be penalized in some just public manner.

    Why I did not include Serena in this batch? I really think the line person in the match over reacted. Some older folks might remember the more entertaining John McEnroe matches - nuff said …you all know what I am talking about. This of course is not limited to just Mr. McEnroe.

    Anyway it’s nice that they did reel-in Serena for her outbursts but I think the punishment was a bit extreme. Again I am basing my comparisons between outbursts of the ever entertaining Mr. McEnroe to Ms. Williams

    Zanato – Think about it. How did Swift win best female video but Beyonce won best video? Isn't Beyonce a female? That's where I think Kanye is coming from. Basically they are giving Swift an award just to give one to her, ignoring the fact that B's video was the video of the year. I am not in Kanye's mind, but if that was his point, which I assume it was, then I agree with it. Yeah i think he should have let Swift have her moment, but you can also blame it on MTV for screwing up by giving her an award when she didn't deserve it. Swift did get recognized by having her video even be nominated. But if one video is better, it should win the award. I don't even like either videos but there is nothing logical about giving a best female award to one person while giving the best overall award to a different female.

    You all should be angry at MTV more than him. They knew he was going to pull a stunt. He did last year backstage and at the EVMA's and was trashed on the Red Carpet. Plus, he wasn't escorted out until much later in the show. He wasn't immediately thrown out like they want you to believe. MTV got their publicity and numbers but aren't taking any responsibilty for allowing it. The stage had NO security and still didn't after his blow up. Lil Mama went on stage at the end of Jay Z's performance. Obviously they didn't learn ther lesson and was looking for more drama.

    You all will complain about him for awhile, but you'll still watch him on Jay, still buy his albums and listen to his music.

    He can begin to make amends by both cancelling Kanye (or severely joking at his expense and humiliating him like he always did MJ to where Kanye walks off ) AND having a real nice tribute and apology to Jackson's fans and family.

    Kanye West is a mistake, a non-entity, a talentless boob that cannot sing and counts on everyone else involved in his "music" to make it palatable. He has no business being on a national stage. He is rude and ugly. The man should be shunned . . . . . .

    Beyonce showed the kind of character, class and style that a true super star can possess. She left no doubt in my mind that she is a woman of grace and substance by giving Taylor Swift her moment to shine. Taylor Swift also showed poise and class beyond her years by refusing to make a "sound bite" statement about Kanye West's behavior that she'd be sure to regret later. Kanye, on the other hand, acted like a spoiled, bratty, classles street thug.

    You know, it's really disheartening to watch these masses of people being so easily led by the nose and having predictable knee-jerk reactions to whatever is thrown at them on their screens.
    Neither Kayne nor Swift are personal friends nor personal enemies of any of you people! Why are you so concerned with what wealthy people in the spotlight are doing and saying to each other? If you are unable to separate yourself and see where your own reality begins and ends you should probably not be watching TV because you are too easily swayed by what simply does not concern you. Do you really imagine that Swift needs to be defended by you in order for her talent to survive, or that Kayne needs to be reviled by you personally? All this hatred and ugliness you pour towards this guy who seems to be a loudmouth himself only puts you in his league. I'm about 90% sure EVERYTHING of this sort you see on TV is staged anyway no matter what the producers claim. The immediate panned shot to 'a shocked Beyonce' should give you that clue but ya'll are too caught up in the TV drama!

    Trouble is, if Jay cancels him (which, IMHO, he should), Kanye will have absolutely no idea why. Except, perhaps, as just another manifestation of the great conspiracy against him. Unfortunately, egomaniacal sociopaths don't tend to conform to the "just ignore him and eventually he'll go away" behavioral model. It really IS all about him, AND there is, in his mind, absolutely nothing that it would be too extreme to do to make sure that everyone else realizes it.

    Kanye is crazy .... but you people are nuts and uneducated. his appearance on Jay Leno tonight is just a guest spot on Jay-Z's new song with Rihanna and Kanye. So should Jay-Z and Rihanna be cancelled too? Yeah the guy is a loose cannon, but that is what most people like about him. He has no filter. Like Kanye said himself, love him or hate him, he's real and says what's on his mind. The world would be a pretty boring place if everyone was just another stepford wife. Was he out of line? Absolutely. But should people "never watch Leno" because Kanye performs? Absolutely not. Maybe you should take the advice your giving Kanye and "grow up".

    Instead of focusing of the rudeness of Kanye West we all should be focusing on how well Taylor Swift kept her composure and at how Beyonce was a beautiful soul by calling Taylor back to the stage. Neither one of those ladies knew that Kanye was going to do what he did and you could see the horror of Beyonce's face after he did it.

    Jay – My daughter is 13 and she cried when Kanye pulled his stunt which ruined an important moment for this 19 year old sensation Taylor Swift. As sad as it is, in the world of entertainment this brings her publicity that she couldn't buy. I say bring him on your show, but then only ask him one question: Is he going to seek therapy. Then in a very obvious manner, ignore him and move on to your next guest. If you can possibly get Taylor Swift to appear(even remotely) then I think you'd be doing your premiere show a huge ratings boost. Or wait a minute, was this planned all along as a ratings boost for your show? You kinda wonder. Ball's in your court Leno.

    Kanye not only disrespected Taylor Swift, he jumped the gun. If he would have waited a few minutes, he would have seen Beyonce get recognized for her video.

    Kanye West is a douchebag. He embarrassed himself and Beyonce, and he ruined a once-in–a-lifetime moment for 17-year-old Taylor Swift.

    When will we decide we have seen and heard enough of Kanye West?? If he is not canceled on Leno–which he should be–he should not be afforded the frendly smiling questions Leno is known for. Disrespect and rudeness does not come close to describing his actions but he should not go unchallenged if he tries to justify or minimize or explain. Nothing short of "I was horribly wrong. This is not the first time I have gone out of control and my ego has taken over. I know I hurt people and have wasted the opportunity celebrity has given me. I have contacted a therapist and will be beginning therapy to find out where my life has taken such a hurtful and damaged direction and I am determined to make whatever changes are required to earn back personal respect and make ammends to those I have trampled." If anything other than that comes from his mouth the interview should end and he should get no more invitations to use up broadcast airtime, a resource and license owned and granted by the public.

Kanye's comments may have been another effort to hype the show to try to give it some degree of validity or viewership; who knows? In any case, his ego is no bigger than anyone else who appears there.

  291. boycott Jay unless he cancels Kanye

    Jay should drop Kanye – I was going to watch Leno tonight but will not be if he has Kanye on. I feel the right move is to boycott Jay's show to show that this kind of entertainer is not acceptable

    I was going to watch Leno, but now that I hear Kanye West is a guest – changed my plans. I refuse to play into or give ratings to someone of this caliber – answer this question – What if Beyonce was in Taylor Swift's position and Eminem grabbed the mic. It would be racist for sure. Enough is enough!

  294. Kanye sucks

    I was shocked and saddened by Kanye's behavior last night. Taylor Swift is just a teenager and her most exciting moment will forever be stained with Kanye's idiotic stunt. I was checking Twitter last night and I think Katy Perry said it best when she commented that doing that to Taylor was "like stepping on a kitten." Sure, he has already apologized, but an all-caps blog entry is half-assed, if you ask me. BURN, KANYE, BURRNNNN!

    Kayne should check into a rehabilitation center ASAP before he makes
    a fool of myself again. He was obviously on something last night. No rational, normal person would have done what he did. Fortunately, Taylor has class and manners. She is one great kid.

    I guess acting like Joe Wilson is catching on. The world is apparently full of sore losers.

    If I were Jay Leno and could be exempt from legal ramifications, I would just have Taylor Swift come out in Kanye's slot for the premiere of my show. She would have millions of viewers tuned in to listen to a 'do over' for her acceptance speech!

    I will definitely be boycotting Leno's show if he keeps Kanye West on the guest list. West is a no-talent egomaniac. I will be boycotting ANYTHING he is associated with. Leno had better be careful or he stands to lose some significant viewers for his premier. Is Kanya really worth it? Hell No!!

  300. Joe Wilson and Kanye West are Brothers

    Kanye West was extremely disrespectul – I feel awful about her treatment. She works hard just like the other artists. I also feel that she and President Barack Obama were both mistreated by people whose actions were INNAPPROPRIATE, RUDE, and IGNORANT.

    Kanye West is a disgrace. If Jay Leno doesn't cancel his appearance tonight, the whole audience should get up and walk out on Mr. West.
    This isn't the first time he has done something to disgrace not only himself but those around him.

  302. NO RESPECT

    Kanye West has no respect for anyone. I am sure his Mother is ashamed and embarassed of his behavior. He needs to apologize for his actions at the awards, and hope that he still has 1 loyal fan..to support his career from now on! I myself never cared for his music or talent anyways. What a looser! I will never support an artist of his likes.

    I agree. He should be punished by not being allowed to perform on Leno. This jerk does and says whatever he wants and people still support him and buy his music. Time to be held responsible for his actions.

    If I was attending the Leno Show, I would personally rally the audience to boo him till he leaves the studio.

    He shouldnt be cancelled, but Leno should roast the crap out the guy and maybe steal HIS mike and give his opinion on what musical guests he should have brought on instead of Kanye. This guy is a loser. Hey Kanye, now you know why "George Bush don't like black people".

    Leno can show some class by dumping this punk. That would be enough to get me to tune in.

  307. What a jerk

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but the time and place for somebody to voice that opinion is NOT in the midst of somebody else's spotlight. Kanye just proved yet again what a spoiled brat he is. I'm glad he was escorted from the show, and kudos to Taylor Swift for keeping composure and Beyonce for calling her back up.

  310. Kanye is a Loser

    Kanye West is a loser and Leno should cancel him. There is NO excuse for what he did and who cares what his opinion is. Nobody should buy this losers music and he needs go away in shame. Last check it wasn't the Kanye West awards show!
