Tina Fey Had a Hard Time Explaining Erections to Her Six-Year-Old Daughter

Anyone who has been around small kids knows that some of the stuff that comes out of their mouths is hilariously precocious, but it can also take you aback because you didn't expect to hear it for at least another few years. Tina Fey found herself in that predicament when she was watching some 30 Rock with her six-year-old daughter Alice – adorable! – when someone mentioned erections under clothes. Of course out of anything she could have picked up on, Alice asked her mom: "What's an erection?" To which walking thesaurus Tina quickly replied: "An erection is a building!" But someone must have taught wee Alice about context early on because she knew all to well that you can't hide buildings under clothing (my apologies to Christo and Jeanne-Claude) and started pressing for more details. "I wanted to be so mad at the show," added Tina. "But it was my show!" [Radar]

In unsettling news, Sinead O'Connor pleaded for psychiatric help on Twitter yesterday following an attempted overdose last Thursday. "i realise i will be in trouble 4 doing this but.. ireland is a VERY hard place to find help in," she wrote. "So having tried other ways 1st im asking does any1 know a psychiatrist in dublin or wicklow who could urgently see me today please? im really un-well... and in danger." Including an email where she could be reached, she added: "i desperately need to get back on meds today … am in serious danger." Let's hope she got the help she needed. If someone of her stature has to rely on Twitter for psychiatric advice, what must it be like for the rest of the country? [NYDN, The Sun]
