  • In an upcoming MTV documentary about her, Nicki Minaj discusses how The Showbiz's double-standardism discourages women artists from being more assertive. "When I am assertive, I'm a bitch," she says. "When a man is assertive, he's a boss."
  • "No negative connotation behind 'bossed up,'" she continues. "But lots of negative connotation behind being a bitch. Donald Trump can say, 'You're fired.' Let Martha Stewart run her company the same way and be the same way. [People will say] 'F—-ing old evil bitch!' But Donald Trump, he gets to hang out with young bitches and have 50 different wives and just be cool." She also isn't down with the whole Superwoman motif, saying that she can't be everybody's everything: "'I'm a human being." These are not new complaints! But they are very much relevant ones, and probably new to many in MTV's audience, to so it's refreshing to see Ms. Minaj speak her mind. [MTV]

"Three of Tiger Woods' "special friends"—porn stars Holly Hampson and Jocelyn James, and waitress Jamie Jungers—are holding an anniversary party in honor of his historic car crash."

I would bet good money that there was copious booze, drunken over-sharing, swearing, hair-pulling, at least one fight and lots of crying and hugging at this holiday get-together.

Stars! They're just like us!
