Gordon Ramsay Posts Pictures Of Raw Food. Why?

When you are cooking for your friends, you can pretty much serve whatever you want.  But raw food? You might want to store that in a folder labeled “What Not To Serve At A BBQ”.

That’s probably easier said than done when you are a famous international chef.  The food you prepare is going to be noticed by millions of people.  That’s a given for Gordon to deal with on a daily basis.

He has spent years shouting at chefs in kitchens, making derogatory comments about their sandwiches because they couldn’t seem to grasp how to cook a simple egg.

He is well-known for berating others and making comments that are a far cry from decent. Rarely does he have the focus turned on him or his cooking skills? It seems the tables have turned and many people have taken issue with his latest concoctions during a BBQ.

Controversial Chateaubriand

That said, people had taken issue with one of his latest accomplishments in the kitchen and placing it on social media revealing a delicious looking Chateaubriand.

The dish is served on a wooden board with a Bearnaise sauce, tomatoes, and green garnish.  The pictures, alone, will definitely stir up your appetite, but some people had questioned when the meat was going to be properly cooked?

His post was covered in comments from people saying the meat was way too raw to serve for their liking.  One person said, quite sarcastically, that if they could get a veterinarian on the scene quickly, he or she could probably resuscitate the poor cow.

Others have suggested that Ramsey place it back on the BBQ.

Secret Sauce

What many of these commentators do not understand, this is exactly how you serve Chateaubriand along with a Bearnaise sauce!  It is a tenderloin cut that is located between the sirloin and top sirloin parts of the cow.

Even though he’s not wrong, some people find the image a little beyond upsetting. Moving on to the popular online show, First We Feast, which consists of people asking questions while eating hot wings.

What you might call hot wings might not be the same, these hot wings are super HOT!

Ramsey is the most requested guest on the show and it was his kids bullying him to go on.  They told their dad he is always shouting and screaming all day because he has a big mouth, but can he actually take on some of these hot wings?

During the interview, he couldn’t help but make negative comments about the hot wings, asking how long these wings had been cooked and followed up with “because they are a bit “f**ing” overcooked. He said one of the wings looked like his grandfather’s big toe and quite simply they are just not good.

He managed to take on the wings but as the heat started to rise, he started breaking into a sweat and started tearing. Final comment, as he wiped back tears, he said “I haven’t cried this much since AA Gill’s funeral”

Way to go First We Feast! What goes around, sometimes comes back around!

When you are cooking for your friends, you can pretty much serve whatever you want.  But raw food? You might want to store that in a folder labeled...

3 Biggest Pop Culture Imaginary Stories And Rumors

People are bored. When people are bored, they tend to come up with weird and wonderful conspiracy theories, often about those that in the spotlight.

Some of them are eerily convincing (I personally believe Michael Jackson is chilling on a beach in Hawaii somewhere) while some are outright wacky. Here are the three best and funniest pop culture conspiracy theories that will have you scratching your head for the rest of the day.

Lorde is older

This conspiracy even sparked a South Park episode, so you know it’s good… when Lorde emerged with her hit “Royals” in 2013, a group of people dedicated to the truth claimed she was way older than her said age of 17.

Luckily this rumor didn’t gain too much ground and was put to rest when The Hairpin requested a copy of her birth certificate. Lorde happily complied, and it was proved that Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor was indeed born on Nov. 7, 1996.

Michael Jackson And His Sister Latoya Are The Same Person

While I am of the belief the King of pop is still alive, many have a wackier theory that Michael Jackson and his sister Latoya are one and the same (that picture of them together must just be some genius photo cropping)

Theorists seemed to ignore the fact that they have appeared together multiple times and that the two were born two years apart.

The Simpsons Predicted 9/11

It’s been a freaky phenomenon for years- the Simpsons creator somehow knows how to ‘predict things’ or so they say. In the shows ninth premier “The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson,” Lisa holds up an ad for a $9 trip to Manhattan that shows the “9” next to an image of the Twin Towers….apparently that translated as a 9/11 prediction somehow or another.

Coincidence or not you’ve got to admit its kind of freaky.

The episode was taken off after 9/11 occurred but has since been put back on rotation. It follows the Simpson family on a trip to Manhattan where their car was abandoned near the world trade center.

The 3 Coolest Couples Between 1972 – 1974

Who was the coolest couple of the year? Who did you look at and say “wow… that looks like true love” but found yourself saying it over and over? I’m sure you would love to see these couples go on with their love, wouldn’t you?

Here’s a look back at those glamorous couples whose love felt just as real and intense as your crush from chem class. Continue down the time-tunnel of love:

1972: Carly Simon and James Taylor

Musical power couple Carly and James got married in 1972, just a year after they began dating. But Carly had her sights set on James way before they first met.

“I saw his picture on the cover of TIME magazine when I was walking home with my sister and I said, ‘I’m gonna marry that man,’” she once revealed to People.

Love comes to an end

They had two children together, but ultimately the couple filed for divorce after a decade of marriage thanks to Taylor’s infidelities and a heroin addiction… unfortunately they did not end on the best of terms.

1973: Ali MacGraw and Steve McQueen

Ali and Steve started dating in 1972 and got married a year later. Despite the couple’s glamorous veneer, their relationship was secretly quite rocky.

Secret Trauma

McQueen, titled the “King of cool” at his time, was not only abusive and had constant affairs, but throughout their marriage he would not allow McGraw to work, even offering to pay her not to take roles she was offered.

“There were many times that were just wonderful, and there were many times that were just ghastly,” Ali explained to People. The couple got divorced in 1977.

1974: Anjelica Huston and Jack Nicholson

Anjelica and Jack began dating in the early ’70s, and their on-and-off relationship spanned the next 17 years.  While Nicholson was emotional and caring about Anjelica throughout their relationship, he was also constantly busy with flings outside their relationship.

Shocking Surprise

Anjelica wrote in her memoir that Jack was constantly unfaithful, and she finally left him when he disclosed that was expecting a child with another woman. Still, the couple was a sought-after staple in the 1970s and ’80s Hollywood scene.

This can go on up to 2018, so if you want to see who else was the hottest couple of the year, continue here

Kanye West Loves “Rick & Morty”

We knew this before, Kanye West never has minced words when asked what his favorite TV show is, he always says it is “Rick & Morty.” Over the years, Kanye has talked about the show on his social media pages and TV. He says the episodes are so good; it is easy to watch them five times without getting bored.
The “Rick & Morty” TV show is an animated adult science fiction sitcom. It was created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon. The TV show can be seen on Cartoon Network during the late hours every day because of its PG rating. The sitcom is about a crazy scientist called Rick Sanchez and his grandson Morty Smith who go on different adventures across the galaxies. So far, there are over seventy episodes of the show.

The press caught up with Kanye in NYC. He had come with Kim Kardashian to enjoy the Versace fashion show. Kanye was about entering the venue of the event when he was asked the all too familiar question, “What is your favorite TV show?” and he mentioned the name we have heard for many years.

We wonder why Kanye is so fascinated by this show. The crazy humor and adventures of Rick and Morty are good for a laugh. It is warming to know that Kanye can find time to unwind with such a hilarious show despite his busy schedule.

We won’t be surprised to see a cameo with Kanye on the “Rick & Morty” show in the nearest future. He has made the show quite popular. Last time Kanye mentioned the TV show’s name, the search results online increased because many people were interested in seeing the show Kanye was so passionate about.

We also noticed a bromance forming between Kanye and the creator of “Rick & Morty” Justin Roiland. The two have been communicating on Twitter, and there are plans to hand out. Kanye has also taken an interest in the characters of the show; he posts pictures of Rick and Morty on his social media pages. The special one happened during Kanye’s birthday. His wife Kim Kardashian launched a new Rick and Morty song titled “Kanye’s B Day,” which was originally composed for Kanye’s birthday

Groovy Photos – Elton John & Freddie Mercury, The Last Words

Freddie Mercury died November 24, 1991 and when listening to his music, it seems as if he’s still here. The king of rock could hold crowds for hours with an amazingly wide range of music styles and an out of this world stage performance. He was truly an entertainer and the essence of Groovy! He died from AIDS complications. Elton John was a very good friend of his, and he was there, in Freddie’s final days.

The two use to hang out a lot and Elton got to know Freddie really well. They were so close that they both had nicknames for each other – “Freddie and I had developed pet names for each other, our drag-queen alter egos. I was Sharon, and he was Melina.”

Alter Egos

Elton John shared some details about the Mercury’s last days in a book called Love is the Cure: On Life, Loss, and the End of AIDS. He wrote: “…Freddie told me he had AIDS soon after he was diagnosed in 1987. I was devastated. I’d seen what the disease had done to so many of my other friends. I knew exactly what it was going to do to Freddie. As did he. He knew death, agonizing death, was coming. But Freddie was incredibly courageous. He kept up appearances, he kept performing with Queen, and he kept being the funny, outrageous, and profoundly generous person he had always been.”

“As Freddie deteriorated in the late 1980s and early ’90s, it was almost too much to bear. It broke my heart to see this absolute light unto the world ravaged by AIDS. By the end, his body was covered with Kaposi’s sarcoma lesions. He was almost blind. He was too weak to even stand.”

“By all rights, Freddie should have spent those final days concerned only with his own comfort. But that wasn’t who he was. He truly lived for others. Freddie had passed on November 24, 1991, and weeks after the funeral, I was still grieving.”

“On Christmas Day, I learned that Freddie had left me one final testament to his selflessness. I was moping about when a friend unexpectedly showed up at my door and handed me something wrapped in a pillowcase. I opened it up, and inside was a painting by one of my favorite artists, the British painter Henry Scott Tuke. And there was a note from Freddie. Years before, Freddie and I had developed pet names for each other, our drag-queen alter egos. I was Sharon, and he was Melina. Freddie’s note read, “Dear Sharon, thought you’d like this. Love, Melina. Happy Christmas.”

UPDATED: The Winners At The 70th Emmy Awards

UPDATE 18/09/2018: The list of winners at the 2018 Emmy Awards has now been added to the end of this post.

Predictions abound for the 70th iteration of the Emmy’s with several of television’s most celebrated shows set for a big night at the Television Academy Awards held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Monday, September 17, 2018.

“This year’s nominations continue to represent increased diversity and inclusion in front of the camera,” said Television Academy Chairman and CEO Hayma Washington. “And, there is a wealth of new and returning programs that reflect so many of today’s critical issues.”

Among all shows up for awards, Game Of Thrones has the most nominations (22) in all categories, followed by Saturday Night Live (21) and Westworld (21). Leading the nominations in totals by platform are Netflix (112), HBO (108) and NBC (78). With over a hundred awards on offer, we’ll take our pics among the contenders for the Drama Series category’s main awards.

Outstanding Drama Series

The award for the best drama series seems like a two horse raise between downtrodden handmaidens and the dragon-riding royalty of Westeros. With Game of Thrones famously absent from last year’s awards, the Handmaid’s Tale swooped in to collect the gong. This year, the two go head-to-head. Critics are predicting a win for the Hulu drama to repeat the feat again this year.

Lead Actor In A Drama Series

It looks to be a threepeat for actor Sterling K. Brown. The This Is Us star comes in having won consecutive awards for The People v. O.J. Simpson and This Is Us. With his fictional father, Ron Cephas Jones, winning the Guest-Actor award in a stunning upset this past weekend, it means voters have been paying attention to the storyline. Realistically, Brown’s main threat is his co-star and fictional adopted father, Milo Ventimiglia, who perhaps had a more emphatic role this past season.

Lead Actress In A Drama Series

Likewise, except a repeat for Elisabeth Moss to win this year’s gong. The Handmaid’s Tale star’s compelling portrayal in the series seems impossible to beat, with the show’s success due in large part to the star’s series-carrying performance. Having been overlooked for her past work on Mad Men, Moss is a shoe-in for this year’s award once again.

Supporting Actor In A Drama Series

Last year’s winner, John Lithgow for The Crown, isn’t in the running this year, which leaves the field wide open. Both Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage can consider themselves contenders for their roles on Game of Thrones. Dinklage already having two previous wins and Coster-Waldau being tasked with the season’s most poignant moments. However, Matt Smith for his perfectly petty and occasionally sympathetic portrayal as Prince Philip in The Crown is apparently tipped to win.

Supporting Actress In A Drama Series

The Handmaid’s Tale has three nominees this award, making up it a favorite to win this award. Interestingly the show has yet to lose an acting category in which it has been nominated. The real question is not if but who among its nominees will win. Samira Wiley was awarded this year’s Guest Actress award, just as Alexis Bedel, who won last year’s Guest Actress prize, is now a season regular and up for a Supporting Actress award. Ann Dowd and Yvonne Strahovski who also star in the show are nominated. Dowd might have been the early favorite, however, as the season progressed it was Strahovski who really stole the show, having previously worked on both Chuck and Dexter.

As for the Outstanding Directing For A Drama Series, and Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series awards, there’s little to separate between Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale, and This Is Us.

“It’s been another record-breaking year with more than 9,100 entries in 122 unique categories for the initial nomination round of voting,” said Washington. “The continued growth of the industry has provided opportunities for acclaimed new programs to emerge while allowing last season’s break-through programs to thrive.”

Meek Mill Donates 6,000 Backpacks to His Hometown School District in Philadelphia

Meek Mill is giving back to his Philadelphia community just in time for the back-to-school season.

He didn’t have an easy childhood as together with his sister and mother were living in poverty after his dad was killed when he was just 5 years old.  Now after climbing out from the streets, he has decided to give something back to the community in order to help kids face the same life he did.

The 31-year-old rapper is donating 6,000 backpacks and school supplies to low-income students at 12 schools in the neighborhood.

“Growing up in Philly, I’ve watched families struggle to make ends meet and buy basic school supplies for their kids,” Meek Mill said in a statement.

“Those memories stay with me and that’s why I’m committed to giving back to families in my hometown, putting smiles on kids’ faces and helping them start the school year on the right note with the right supplies,” he continued.

The lyricist visited his alma mater, James G. Blaine Elementary School, to personally hand out the supplies to students on Wednesday.

“I’m also a native of North Philadelphia, so to have [Meek Mill] come back and be a model of what it is to work hard and make your dreams come true, as you can see, it’s exciting for the students,” Assistant Superintendent Amelia Coleman Brown told Philly.com. “It’s great motivation to start the school year.”

No Parole For John Lennon’s Killer

It is the tenth time the killer of John Lennon will be denied parole. His ‘debt’ has not been paid in full. After hearing his plea for a parole consideration, the board concluded and was quoted to have stated that releasing Mark David Chapman “would be incompatible with the welfare and safety of the society and would so deprecate the serious nature of the crime as to undermine respect for the law.”

Mark Chapman had indeed neglected the legal consequences by willfully pulling the trigger of the gun that killed John Lennon. Now 63 years old, he is still paying for the crime he committed, the public has commended the board for rejecting his application for parole while other groups have criticized the parole rejection as unfair.

Chapman was convicted for the murder of John Lennon and was given a life sentence. He has been incarcerated at the Wende Correctional Facility in western New York. John would have been 78 years this year if not for the unfortunate event that led to his untimely death.

In its denial decision, the parole board stated that Chapman has consciously planned and executed the murder of the famous John Lennon because he wanted to gain a ruthless reputation. The board also noted that he had consciously chosen to assassinate a popular figure without regard to the pain and anguish his family and fans from all over the world would suffer.

The parole board is of the opinion that setting Chapman free would only send a message that such as act could be condoned or pardoned over time and in the process undermine the seriousness of such crimes.

The next parole hearing for Chapman is scheduled for August 2020. However, the public outcry for him to remain behind bars cannot be overlooked. Over the years, the impact of the loss and suffering Chapman caused millions of fans all over the world remains ‘fresh in their memories. Chapman confirms that he still receives letters from anonymous fans of John Lennon condemning his act many years ago and he wishes he had made different choices at that time. However, the deed was done, and now, it is so difficult to forget.

Will POTUS Trump Lose His Hollywood Star?

For a celebrity, few things can be more damning to be told: losing your Hollywood Star. Easily one of the most important accolades that a celebrity can get, the fact that you can actually lose your star is a major kick in the teeth. Well, it looks like one person might be finally about to stand up to the President of the United States, Donald Trump, in the most innocuous way: removing his Hollywood star.

While we suspect that the Teflon-infused POTUS will just laugh it all off and make some wild comments about it on Twitter, it’s nice to see the celebrity world take a bit of a stand for once. The celebrity world is loaded with a lack of fire when it comes to making a political message stand out, and it’s nice to see self-preservation take a back seat for a change.

The five-member West Hollywood City Council has apparently voted unanimously to have the star removed from the ground. While the council lacks the authority to do so itself, it intends to try and send out a formal message to Eric Garcetti, the Mayor of Los Angeles, to see if he’ll do something about it. They also messaged the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, the key decision maker, and the Los Angeles City Council, to push for the star to be binned.

Citing all manner of reasons to remove the star, including “disturbing treatment of women and other actions that do not meet the shared values of the City of West Hollywood, the region, state, and country,” it’s likely that this will fall on deaf ears.

According to John D’Amico, the West Hollywood Mayor, this isn’t to do with political affiliation, but that the star is an “honor” and that when one belittles and attacks minorities, immigrants, people with disabilities or women—the honor no longer exists.”

Turning Up the Heat

While such superficial battles won’t make one bit of difference in the long-run, it’s nice to see a bit of backlash against Trump. The Walk of Fame star that he has in Hollywood has already been the victim of vandals, and was even chipped away at by someone with a pickaxe. It’s also been spray-painted with Nazi imagery and various other profane stickers, so it might just be for the best to remove the star in the long run.


Given that other stars in the past have not been removed, though, it’s not likely to happen. According to ex-President and CEO f the Chamber, Leron Gubler, it’s not something to consider. Speaking in 2015 regarding the removal of Bill Cosby’s star, Gubler said: “once a star has been added to the Walk, it is considered a part of the historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.”

If that’s the case, expect this bit of drama to carry on for a good while yet.

Bringing Sixty Back: Maddona Turns 60

“People say I’m controversial,” Madonna, who turns 60 today, told a music-industry audience in 2016. “But I think the most controversial thing I have ever done is to stick around.”

The celebrated pop star, actress, writer, and director was born on the 16th of August 1958 and given the name Madonna Louise Ciccone by her Catholic parents. Since first breaking onto the music scene in the late 1970s, The Material Girl has now sold more than 300 million records worldwide and performed on 10 concert tours. According to Guinness World Records, she is the best-selling female recording artist of all time.

In 1977 the Queen of Pop moved to the Big Apple to study dance while working as a model. She soon decided to pursue a musical career and began to record demos with her boyfriend Stephen Bray. After a stint as a band member in the Breakfast Club, she decided to embark on a solo career.

Holiday” was Madge’s first breakthrough hit in the US, peaking at number 16, with “Material Girl” reaching number 3 and “Like A Virgin” being the first of her twelve number-one hits. 1985 proved to be a landmark year for “M” as her debut tour sold out. She also played at the historic Live Aid charity concert. The same year she featured in her first mainstream film, Desperately Seeking Susan for which she received generally positive reviews from both critics and viewers.

A polarizing figure, the Queen of Reinvention has never been one to shy away from controversy. From burning crosses and kissing a black saint in her hit single “Like A Prayer“, tackling teenage pregnancy in “Papa Don’t Preach“, supporting the LGBT community during the peak era of HIV news, publishing a controversial “coffee table” photo book of herself in a number of explicit poses in the early 90s, locking lips with Brittany Spears and Christina Aguilera on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2003, the MDNA singer has certainly had her fair share of iconic moments. Throughout the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s, Madonna has maintained her unapologetic sex-positive, no-holds-barred image.

The singer’s list of accomplishments include Grammys, MTV awards, Billboard awards, and a Golden Globe for Best Actress for her role as the eponymous Evita in a musical or comedy, among numerous others. In 2008 Maddy was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in her first year of eligibility. She is also the highest-grossing solo touring artist of all time with over $1.4 billion earned from concert tours alone. She has also written a series of children’s books, having released seven picture books and twelve chapter books so far.

Twice married, once to American actor Sean Penn, and once to English director and Producer Guy Ritchie with whom she had a son, Rocco. Madonna is the mother to six children, including four she adopted from Malawi where she has focused most of her charity work. She had her first child Lourdes Maria with then-boyfriend and fitness trainer Carlos Leon.

Recently, Madonna told the BBC in 2017 that performing at smaller intimate shows “is something I’m exploring right now”. She said she is looking to perform at a set venue as opposed to touring, “The idea of doing a show that doesn’t travel the world but stays in one place.”

Aretha Franklin’s “Death Is Imminent”

Update: 16/08/2018 – It has now been reported Aretha Franklin passed away aged 76 in her Detroit home surrounded by family, today. The cause is reported to be advanced pancreatic cancer.

The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin is reported to be gravely ill in hospice care at her home. Currently, she is surrounded by her family and friends wishing to say goodbye.

The singer has been battling cancer for some time it has been rumored. “Prepare yourself, she’s dying.” A longtime friend and source close to the singer is reported as telling TMZ. The source adds the iconic diva was down to 86 pounds and her health was failing. The source says 2 weeks ago everyone in Aretha’s circle was told, “She could go any time.”

A friend of the songstress confirmed to People that the singer had “been ill for a long time” and her loved ones had been warned her “death is imminent.” Franklin’s nephew, Tim Franklin, also confirmed the 76-year-old star’s status to People following the anonymous source, revealing that the soul singer’s family was “asking for prayers and privacy.” Tim added while the singer “is sick,” her family was “trying to keep her spirits up and go from there.”

A career spanning six decades, the 18-time Grammy award winner first started singing gospel music at the Detroit Church where her father was a minister. In 1960 she signed her first record label, and eight years later she already had chart-toppers like “Respect,” “Chain of Fools”, and “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” under her belt. In 1987, Franklin became the first women to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Franklin performed at the inauguration of several US Presidents such as  Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama. In 2005, President George W. Bush awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Her last performance was at a private Elton John AIDS Foundation event in November 2017.

In February last year, the artist announced she would stop touring, despite booking concerts. Earlier this year, she canceled a pair of scheduled performances on doctors orders according to Rolling Stone.

“We believe she’ll pull through it, she believes she’ll pull through it, and that’s the important thing,” Tim Franklin conceded.

The Rock Surprises His Stunt Double With An Amazing Gift

It’s not easy to be a stunt double, you get to do all the hard work while the movie stars take all the fame. This fact was not lost on  Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson who decided to reward his stunt double with a huge gift.

Skyscraper star rewarded his stunt double and cousin, Tanoai Reed, for all his hard work and physical suffering, surprising Reed with a new custom truck in an exchange that was shared in a video on Johnson’s Instagram page.

“Surprise” He wrote, “I love handing over keys I love you brother and enjoy your new truck!
Over the course of my career, my stunt double (and cousin) Tanoai Reed @samoanstuntman has broken multiple bones, severed tendons, torn ligaments & just been an overall dominating bad ass achieving several “Stuntman of the Year” honors.
All done with one goal in mind – deliver the best movie possible to the world. I had this custom pick up truck delivered just in time to surprise him (he’s still recovering from a stunt injury) while we give what he thought was going to be an interview about our careers together.”

He continued by saying ” As you’ll see the moment I put my hands on my hips, that’s the drivers cue to pull away and reveal the big surprise.
Not only does Tanoai represent our family and my career with relentless commitment and passion. He also represents an entire Hollywood stunt community that is truly the backbone of our business.
Love you uso and thank you for the blood, sweat, tears and years.
We’re just getting started. Enjoy your new truck!”

Reed also posted the video on his own account, writing that he was “still in complete shock” over the gift.
