Greatest Pop Divas: There's No Such Thing As A Definitive List Comments (0)

Madonna

Buzzfeed's latest diva ranking is pretty solid, in that Madonna easily makes #1. The fact that it is a definitive ranking of pop divas makes her the inevitable champeen.

I would rearrange the list a bit...

WALK-IN CLOSET Case: Abdi Nazemian's Iranian Musts Comments (0)

Walk-In-Closet-Abdi-Nazemian

A couple of months ago, I had the pleasure of going to lunch with handsome, pop culturally fluent Abdi Nazemian, the screenwriter behind The Quiet, Celeste in the City, Beautiful Girl and a short called Revolution. I met him because I was so interested in his filmic novel The Walk-In Closet, about a Tehrangeles-based marriage of convenience between an Iranian favorite son and his female best friend. It functions as a beach read, but has a lot more going on—the cultural observations are sharp, the portrait of gay life downright jagged. Most of all, it's funny and well-written.

Be sure to check out the book here, and then read Abdi's Iranian musts...

Kathy & Larry On Joanie Comments (0)

Very interesting piece on Joan Rivers that views her work's cruelty (come on, you know it's true) through a feminist lens. I responded to it. I don't really have a lot of intellectual respect for any responses that go, Fuck her! She doesn't get Joan! Joan was fierce!-level replies. I do think there is a lot to unpack in Rivers's work, even if Rivers herself didn't enjoy delving into it on that level—CNN, much? But I also think that beyond looking at what humor means, which is fair, once you start acting as if humor is identical to serious debate, you run into trouble, as does the author of this thoughtful it not exactly rah-rah piece on Rivers. But it's a compelling read.

On a related note: Kathy Griffin says she wasn't considered for Craig Ferguson's late-night gig because they told me they weren't considering women, and she recalls Joan Rivers in this clip of her new interview with Larry King...
