TERESA'S TABLOID TRASH 1/3/14
by Teresa Maxwell,posted Jan 3 2014 12:18PM
The "Duck Dynasty" clan is starting the new year off like they ended the last year - with a bang. The Louisiana family's Duck Commander business has teamed up with Connecticut-based gunmaker O.F. Mossberg & Sons to launch a new line of guns. Mossberg says there will be nine different shotguns to choose from, as well as two semiautomatic rifles and a semiautomatic pistol all bearing a "waterfowl pattern" camouflage design and the Duck Commander logo, which depicts a duck in flight. CNN says Mossberg has already started shipping some of the Duck Commander shotguns to distributors.
The gun line follows the media firestorm over A&E's brief suspension of "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson after Robertson made controversial remarks about gay people and African-Americans in an interview with "GQ" magazine. The network announced it was reinstating Robertson to the hit reality series on December 27th after much backlash from fans.
Pop superstar Britney Spearssuffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction on Saturday after her costume became unzipped while performing during her new Las Vegas show. The singer was in the middle of her song "Circus" when the back of her costume came undone. However, Spears remained ever the professional and continued to strut her stuff onstage as a back-up dancer came to her rescue and secured the zipper.
Brad Pitt is trying to make it right for storm victims he helped build homes for through his Make It Right foundation. The organization has been hit with complaints that some of the wood in the structures of the homes has rotted. According to the "Advocate," Pitt's Make It Right has promised to replace all the wood used to make the homes for New Orleans residents left homeless after Hurricane Katrina. They're also threatening to take legal action against wood manufacturer TimberSIL. The wood company tells the "Advocate" it is looking into the complaints.
Pitt, meantime, is apologizing for the situation. In a statement, the Hollywood actor says "Where we find innovative products that didn't perform, we move quickly to correct these things for our homeowners."
NASA is responding to the controversy surrounding Beyoncé's use of audio from the 1986 space shuttle Challenger disaster on her song "XO." The six-second clip features the voice of retired NASA public affairs officer Steve Nesbitt reporting a "major malfunction" after the shuttle exploded.
In a statement obtained by the "Hollywood Reporter," NASA says the Challenger accident "is a tragic reminder that space exploration is risky and should never be trivialized." The organization adds that they work to honor their fallen astronauts every day.
Beyoncé came under fire from current and former NASA employees who believed the sample was insensitive. Bey later responded in a statement saying "XO" was made with the "sincerest intention to help heal those who have lost loved ones."
One last note about Beyonce...she is breaking a personal record with her latest self-titled album. It has now topped the Billboard album chart for the third straight week, selling another 310-thousand copies. Sales are down by just 17 percent compared to the previous week, and the album has now sold a total of one-point-three million copies in the U.S. alone. The surprise album is Beyonce's first-ever to spend three weeks at number one. It's the first album since Susan Boyle's "Dreamed A Dream" in 2009 to have sold more than 300-thousand copies in three consecutive weeks. "Beyonce" is also the fastest-selling album by a female since Taylor Swift's "Red." One Direction is back at the number two spot this week with "Midnight Memories," while Eminem's "The Marshall Mathers LP 2" rises to number three.
Bruce Springsteen is giving CBS first crack at streaming his new album. The rocker's latest compilation "High Hopes" will be available exclusively on CBS.com from January 5th through January 13th, a full week before the album's official January 14th release date. The groundbreaking partnership marks the first time that the CBS website has played host for an album debut. Three songs from "High Hopes" will also be featured during the January 12th episode of CBS' "The Good Wife." Viewers will get a special preview of the episode, featuring the songs, right after this Sunday's broadcast of the Julianna Margulies legal drama.
Not-so-live from Beijing, it's Saturday Night. NBC's "Saturday Night Live" is now airing in communist China, online. The popular Chinese website Sohu Video is currently showing episodes from the current season of "SNL," a move considered bold for the country, which routinely censors film and television content. But Sohu Chairman and CEO Charles Zhang doesn't foresee any issues with bringing the edgy sketch comedy to China. In a statement Thursday, Zhang said "Things that are controversial in America are probably not controversial in China," adding that this show in particular is "in the spirit of fun and humor."
Sohu says future episodes of "SNL" will be available online with and without Chinese subtitles. The subtitled episodes are also expected to include explanations of cultural references.
