What did people do before they had the internet? This week our team discusses the ever-changing and complicated world of technology and it’s effects on relationships. Is it normal to dump someone in 140 characters or less? As much as we hate to admit it, smart phones have really messed up the way we interact with one another. There’s so much more subtext and code to decipher in a one-word text message. More importantly, we also talk about sexting and how people get busy on their phones.
Everybody block your ears. Run away. Or risk being subjected to Paris Hilton’s “singing voice.” The irrelevant socialite released the full wrath of her new song and video for “Drunk Text,” most presumably written from a negative personal experience.
Hilton didn’t even autotune her voice to create a manufactured singing voice for this one, she just goes for poorly delivered spoken words with an electronic beat behind them. The whole song is about the repercussions of a drunk text she accidentally sends.
I think I’ve devised the exact formula Hilton is talking about:
The word sex + texting = sexting + drunk sexting = hot mess or as Hilton astutely puts says “I’m not sure what it means to us.”
Everything about this song is wrong. The words are silly and repetitive, Hilton doesn’t even try to sing and the beat isn’t danceable. Still, Hilton’s been sidelined by the Kardashians for a little while, so attention good or bad is probably welcomed.
If you manage to get through this whole song, you’ve got a brave soul my friend.
As we reported last week, Mila Kunis’ phone was hacked and provocative pictures of Justin Timberlake were found on the phone. There was also claims of sexual texts between Kunis and Timberlake, but the stars are denying that’s true.
“At no time did Mr. Timberlake and Ms. Kunis exchange inappropriate texts or emails. … The insistence that there is any inappropriate correspondence between the two parties is entirely false, ” a lengthy statement to People reads.
The co-stars go on to add, “We would like to confirm that the photo addressed in the media of Ms. Kunis was in fact not from any phone but from an inactive email account that has not existed in three years. In regards to the other photos in question, they were never exchanged between the two parties.”
The statement ends on a funny note saying, ”In closing, Mr. Timberlake would like us to make it clear that while he might write songs about putting things in boxes, he never has and definitely doesn’t make a habit of taking any photos of them and sending them,” referring to Timberlake‘s hit “Saturday Night Live” sketch “D— in a Box.” Ms. Kunis would like us to add that while she is a fan of the song, she does not have nor has ever had photos of any male parts in her possession.”
At least they have a sense of humour about the whole thing.
TMZ is reporting that a legal battle could be coming between Parker and Longoria, as the basketball star filed his petition in Bexar County, Texas. The issue being that Longoria filed in L.A., meaning there will be a little pushing and shoving before one of the courts can continue with the divorce.
The divorce petition that Parker filed states: “The marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities between Petitioner and Respondent that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationships and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.”
There’s also something about this case that’s either a giant coincidence or a little weird; Parker’s legal council is Richard Orsinger, the same lawyer who’s representing Brent Barry—the husband of the woman who was sending the naughty messages to Parker and started this whole thing.
