“Lookout!” [MP3]
     

Michael Jackson, mixing pills with alcohol, and Sarah Palin are all given a hot, dance-beat-driven update. Absolutely hysterical. Watch for Nancy Pelosi breaking it down at the beginning! Get it, girl, Kanye will be calling soon, I’m sure of it.

Tsk, tsk Mrs. Martin… Lady Paltrow, a very capable actress occasionally, has recently launched an insipid blog (which I will not name here), on which she gives out lifestyle tips to the great unwashed masses. Here, Paltrow, who for years claimed to be a vegan, debones a chicken. Not very vegan behavior, really. Looks like she is guilty of just hopping on the fad diet trend to get skinny for all of those red carpets.
