ALEC BALDWIN doesn’t think his daughter Ireland should be attacked for using the N-word on Twitter . . . because she was only quoting a song title.
–The song in question is “[N-words] in Paris” . . . the latest single from the KANYE WEST / JAY-Z album “Watch the Throne”.
–And this all started when Ireland . . . who’ll be 16 next month . . . mentioned the song on Twitter.
–Because she wrote the actual name of the song, people started calling her RACIST.
–Is she racist for Tweeting N’word even though it was part of a song title?
I think Ashton surprised a lot of people last night on the premier of Two and Half Men.
Wasn’t sure how they were going to introduce his character into the show but they did a good job and there were some funny moments.
PEOPLE’s TV Critic Declares Ashton Kutcher a Surprisingly Good Man
By Tom Gliatto

CBS’s Two and a Half Men is now actually one man, played by Jon Cryer, one near-man, played by Angus T. Jones, and one manchild.
That would be Ashton Kutcher, who made his debut Monday night on the de-Sheened sitcom as Walden Schmidt. Walden is nearly the opposite of Charlie Sheen’s now-dead sleaze king Charlie Harper: Sweet, unsarcastic but – here we stay true to the show’s gawping bawdiness – possessed of an astounding anatomical endowment that he soon puts to use.
The instant verdict: Kutcher was not at all bad. He was quite likable.
First, though, we must dispose of the corpse. I think if creator Chuck Lorre could have had all the cast and crew come out shrieking and tear apart a lifelike effigy of departed star Sheen, with blood and viscera and intestines tossed into a vat of hot oil, he would have. It’s not as if anyone would blame Lorre: Sheen’s outrageous behavior earlier this year left a top-rated sitcom without a completed season, without an anchor – and, regardless of how you regard Sheen personally, without one of the best sitcom actors in prime time.
And so the first half of the episode practically danced with sadistic, vengeful glee in explaining how Sheen’s character, the irredeemably low-life womanizer Charlie Harper, had perished: At a memorial service, crazy Rose (the very funny Melanie Lynskey) hinted that she had shoved him under the Paris Metro after she caught him cheating during their honeymoon.
“His body just exploded,” she said, “like a balloon full of meat.” The only memories Charlie’s many lovers shared were about the sexually transmitted diseases he’d given them, and one woman regretted not being able to spit on the body. None of this was funny. It probably wasn’t supposed to be. It was a shiv, and it was being stuck in Charlie Sheen.
Then Kutcher showed up as Schmidt, sopping wet from having tried to drown himself over a broken heart. (He gave up, he said, because the water was too cold.) With his long hair, scruffy beard and hippie-dippy, somewhat stupid sincerity, he seemed at first to have wandered in from a production of Godspell. Except that, as mentioned, he is apparently better endowed than Young Frankenstein and, unlike Mr. Sheen, possesses a body that can be paraded around naked with a preening, unembarrassed confidence.
He’s very nearly a character out of porn. Did you think you were tuning in to Downton Abbey?
And the fact is that Kutcher, despite having spent so much time over the past few years branding and Tweeting himself, is a good comic actor. Not great. His limit may be that he knows how to play a doofus while subtly reminding us that he really isn’t – he likes to clown, but he probably doesn’t want to BE a clown. His self-love may not allow that.
Sheen, on the other hand, had the cold toughness of loathing, anger and regret, a comic style almost radical (for prime time) in its thin ash of contempt. True comedy doesn’t require a smiley face. How else could Sheen have managed to sell tickets for something called the Violent Torpedo of Truth Tour?
But you see where we are now: Kutcher on Sheen’s old sitcom. Sheen, appearing on the Emmys, wishing all the best for Two and a Half Men, seemingly purged of his acidic irony. It was like watching the rebel Winston from Orwell’s 1984 after Big Brother got through with him
Scarlett Johansson is Threatening to Sue Websites that Post Her Nude Photos
Well, we can officially say that the nude SCARLETT JOHANSSON photos are REAL . . . because she’s threatening to sue any websites that post them.
–Her attorney sent letters to various sites asking them to take down what he called, quote, “stolen copyright protected private photographs.”
–The letter goes on to say, quote, “The highly personal and private photographs at issue capture our client self-posing in her own home in a state of undress and / or topless.”
Has CERTIN photo’s of you ever been posted or ended up somewhere where you didn’t want them too???

Wow I think I would purposely fight with Demi so I could sleep in that trailer lol it’s a mansion on wheels, he’s doing pretty good with his dog house!
Ashton Kutcher’s ‘Two & A Half Men’ Trailer Is His Home If He “Ever” Fights With Demi Moore
Ashton Kutcher‘s dog house is way nicer than yours. If the Hollywood hunk ever gets in a fight with wife Demi Moore he is not headed to the couch, rather his more than 1,000 square foot trailer, which he uses on the set of Two and a Half Men!
Ashton’s massive, two-story trailer on the Warner Bros. lot was all his planning, the actor revealed last night to Conan O’Brien on his hit late night talk show Conan.
“It was like this little trailer [I was given] and I have a business that I run in the day when I’m not shooting stuff,” he said of his decision to hire security for the house on wheels, adding, “If I ever have a fight with Demi, I’m staying in the trailer.”
Ashton also revealed that the plot of Men was so guarded, that even his wife Demi had to sign an agreement preventing her from divulging any details
“Everybody has to sign these confidentiality agreements. My wife had to sign one,” Ashton explained. “It’s really intense over there.”
Ashton will be playing Internet billionaire Walter Schmidt when Season 9 debuts Monday at 9 p.m. on CBS. He replaced Charlie Sheen who was infamously fired from the show after his very public fight with creator Chuck Lorre.
“The first two audiences were there just kind of sussing it out. Like, ‘Oh, what do we think about this guy?’ ” Ashton said of his first times on set. “Now, my people are starting to show up, which makes me feel really good.
“There’s this weird skepticism, because we haven’t been able to say much about what the show [is] about.”
Wow not such a fun day at the park… these two collide pretty hard and everyone around them that saw it couldn’t believe it because both went down pretty hard ouch lol!

IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
Don’t hide in the shadows where you cannot be seen. You have so much to offer the world but unless you make the effort to display your genius no one will ever know. It’s not about the past, it’s about the future – your future.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
The important thing as the new week begins is that you keep your anxieties under control. Yes, even Aries has moments of doubt but they rarely last for long. Stay positive, and great things will happen.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
You still have enough time to put the finishing touches to something of a creative nature. Focus on it to the exclusion of everything else today and soon you will get the recognition you know you deserve.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
If you somehow get involved in a dispute between friends or relatives today you must be even-handed. If you give the impression that you favour one side over the other you may make things worse rather than better.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
Change is good, change is positive, and the more you repeat that mantra the more likely it is your subconscious mind will get the message. The world “out there” is created entirely by your own mind.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
If you want something enough you will find a way to get it, but it may cost you more than you expected. Can you wait until the sun changes signs on the 23rd? You won’t have to pay so much then.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
You seem to believe that time is running out, that if you don’t move quickly you will miss out. But time never runs out. You will always get another chance. Don’t put pressure on yourself unnecessarily.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
The sun in Virgo has taught you some valuable lessons, and a few days from now you will get the chance to put what you have learned to good use. You are on the cusp of a wonderful new phase.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
Focus on what you desire today and you might just get it. The mind is a powerful thing and on some deep level your wishes will be heard and your prayers will be answered. But you’ve got to believe.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
You must not – repeat, not – give up on something just because it is not working out as well as expected. If you throw in the towel now you will regret it later when the omens turn in your favour. Be patient.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
Make use of the sun’s last few days in helpful Virgo to finalize your plans. Then, when the sun crosses the career angle of your chart on Friday, you can act with the confidence of knowing you will succeed.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
Whatever kind of news you receive today, be it good, bad or indifferent, don’t take it too seriously. Later in the week you will look back and realize that it was of no significance at all – so act that way now.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
You need to make a decision about a partnership or relationship matter, and you need to make it soon. If you wait until the sun changes signs on the 23rd it may be too late. Be bold – your future depends on it.
