Tina Fey: Bossypants. A Review from TheGirlFromTheGhetto

Bossypants by Tina Fey

Tina Fey is fabulous. This has to be said, because I’ve been a fan of hers for a long, long time. How could anyone not like her? She’s funny, talented, an enthusiastic performer, nerdy as hell and looks like a real woman should look. When I found out she was writing a book I was over the moon with happiness, so when I was sent a review copy of Bossypants, I was praying that her book would deliver as I suspected it to, despite picking that awful front cover.

While I enjoyed this book and laughed my butt off repeatedly while reading it, I wish Fey would have opened up more to her readers during certain stories. For instance, she brought up her face slashing as a young child, but wouldn’t tell the story and only said, “I only bring it up to explain why I’m not going to talk about it.” She brushed it off saying she didn’t want to be asked about it in the news media repeatedly on her book tour, but I feel that was a big cop-out. While I understand why she doesn’t talk about it on a regular basis, I thought to myself if a celebrity is writing a book about themself, shouldn’t they include all of their stories, and not just the filtered stories?

Russell Brand hosts SNL — Chris Brown is Musical Guest

Russel Brand is a trending topic on Twitter. Too bad his name is spelled RUSSELL BRAND. I have never in my life met somebody named Russel. Have you? He’s hosting SNL to promote his new film, Arthur. Some people really dislike Russell Brand and others find him hilarious. The musical guest is Rianna-beater Chris Brown. Remember the days when Nora Dunn wouldn’t perform on the show with Andrew Dice Clay because she found him sexist? (May 12, 1990).

Nora Dunn exited from the show in 1990. Rumor has it that her contract was not renewed, but it probably didn;t help that she boycotting Andrew Dice Clay’s May 12, 1990 hosting gig.

Nora Dunn, as a result of her boycott against Andrew Dice Clay, did not perform in any sketches during the May 12, 1990 episode. From Retrojunk.com

As far as I know, Andrew “Dice” Clay has never smashed a woman’s head against a dashboard. I’m disappointed in NBC for having on Chris Brown. Meanwhile, I love Russell Brand and I’m glad he was on the show and that Hulu (where I will watch it later) doesn’t usually show the musical acts.

I’ll admit that I don’t know Chris Brown’s music. I don’t care. There are many other musicians, famous or unknowns, that deserve to be showcased on SNL before Chris Brown gets his ‘second chance’ at charming his public.

Victoria Jackson says “Progressive is the new word for Communism”

While listening to Stephanie Miller Monday morning, I heard them laughing about the ignorance of Victoria Jackson. Remember her? She was the baby-talking blond on Saturday Night Live a few decades ago. Baby-talk isn’t cute and it doesn’t make you sound smart. In fact, last night on the Daily Show (moment of Zen) they showed the clip of baby-talking Victoria saying, “I listen and learn from Glenn Beck . . . ”  —- ’nuff said.

Taylor Swift is a talented singer AND actress

I think Taylor Swift will be the next Barbra Streisand/Bette Midler type. Her performance on SNL was fantastic, she writes her own songs and she’s a sweet person. Her parents taught her that nothing will be handed to her on silver platter (her parents know how to speak). She is so grateful and respectful of her fans. She talks to them and even considers some of them her FRIENDS. She’s very young and I hope she stays bright and safe in the crazy world of showbusiness.
