Eminem's feminine side


Can Letterman really be defanged for John McCain's re-scheduled Thursday night appearance? In what universe will Oscar-talent-stuffed boxoffice flop "Body of Lies" ever make back its triple digit production and marketing budget?

And even though the trailer for "The Watchmen" is totally sweet, why are they showing it to us at the ArcLight on Saturday night when the dystopian super(anti)hero flick is tied up in litigation that will likely pile-drive its spring release? Or does Warner Bros. know something Fox and the rest of us don't?

These and so many other questions rumbling around in our heads here at Gold Rush today.

This, though, is not among them: "Is the New Eminem a Woman?"

Can't help but share this item because of its a) preposterous premise and b) purple prose. Not sure which is worse, so here's a sample from a "news" release we received about a very blonde, very buxom rapper named Darcy Donavan. You decide.

"Mixing rhythm and edgy lyrics without candy coating, Darcy speaks out about pop stars' drug addictions and negative role models in the industry while drawing from negative media attention and sending it spiraling back to the source."

Her new single is likened to "verbal shrapnel sticking in your brain."

Funny, that's what this release is if read aloud.

Don't believe it? Go here. Seriously, we couldn't make this stuff up.

No word from the Oscar- and Grammy-winning Eminem about what he thinks of the comparison.

For more hyperbole and god-awful writing samples -- or to join Darcy's fan club! -- go here.

I've gotta say, I've listened to her music and looked at her website. This girl has got her shit together and her songs are great. She'll go all the way....

Joey Nader

I think after listening to her music I do indeed have "Verbal shrapnel" sticking in my brain OR maybe it's just that it's too early in the morning to listen to OR the fact that I drank too much the night before. Either way, I need a "Verbal Lobotomy" for my brain.

Oscar Contenders

  • So "The Dark Knight" didn't make it into the final five after all, never mind that critical and popular support. Let's just call the comic-inspired mega-hit "The Biggest Snubee."

    Here are the best picture contenders in a race that, two weeks away from the Oscars, seems to be a foregone conclusion ("Slumdog") unless there's a come-from-behind possibility ("The Reader" anyone?)

    "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," with Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett; the politically timely "Milk;" rags-to-riches fairy tale, "Slumdog Millionaire," Holocaust best-seller-based drama "The Reader," and Watergate-era biopic "Frost/Nixon."

    Could "Button" and "Slumdog" split the vote, allowing another film to take the prize? Doesn't seem likely. After having clung to "Button" for months as what we thought would be the Academy voters' top vhoice, our money's now on "Slumdog." Momentum can't be ignored.

    Watch this blog for updates, ephemera and all manner of postulating.

  • Mmmmm, chocolate Oscar. Not every star will walk away from the 81st annual Academy Awards with a trophy, but if they hit the high-profile Governor's Ball they can have pastry chef Sherry Yard's gold-dusted candy version. Also on the menu from celeb chef Wolfgang Puck is tuna tartare in sesame miso cones, chopped Chino Farms vegetable salad with ginger soy vinaigrette, Maine lobster and caviar. Serve it up!
