Comments by submitter:

A woman in a burkah is walking by a swimming pool. She drops the burkah and underneath, she is wearing a bikini.(*just click here and then mash the What Will It Be button*) She goes by the name Deeyah, was born in Norway, lives in Britain, and bills herself as the Muslim Madonna. This woman is openly rebelling against an establishment with her blatant sexuality, and is receiving constant death threats for her performances.


Here are the lyrics to one of her songs:

"Does the truth only come from the top of a holy man's spire?"

"From three paces back, covered head to toe, like
the rules that the man says and written just for show."

"You can stand up, lay down, or follow. What will
it be? Will it all be the same tomorrow?"

"We don't take it lightly when you threatening
women. How you have so much hate and you fake your religion?"

"If you're that religious and not for trendy
clothes, then what you doing even watching videos?"

Completely unlike the "real" Madonna, Deeyah appears to be a genuine rebel who is by God, no-shit putting her life on the life just to exercise her right to rebel. The music is crap - actually worse than Madonna's
- but the attitude is serious Rock and Roll!!!

Lindsay Lohan Dating Olympic Champion?
  • The site reads: "I have no idea if this is true or not, but I'll choose to believe it, only because it's hard to imagine Lindsay Lohan not having sex with a new man every night. The girl smokes more meat than a Texas barbecue. It's like I was telling her the other day in bed: "Lindsay, you've gotta have some self-respect. Now hurry up and put those antlers back on."

For Fanboy Spidey geeks everywhere, today will be a day that they will remember forever. Why? Because all the rumors are now confirmed. Spidey 3 may be the all time best comic book adaptation. Not because of the addition of Gwen Stacey, but because Spidey will don the infamous black costume. For those who don't know, the black costume means the Venom storyline is coming in either this movie or the next. (Many feel that the Venom story line is the third greatest story line in the Spidey world, behind the origin and Gwen Stacey.) Here's the pic, for those who have not seen it.

Mailbox:


Always enjoy your work, Scoop, but can't resist sending in a correction. You wrote: "The trailer from Lucky Number Slevin. Big cast: Morgan Freeman, Bruce Willis, Gandhi, Lucy Liu, Josh Hartnett"


Shouldn't that be 'Sir Gandhi'? Surely, you've seen the news stories about him insisting on his
title. Funny, no one criticized opera singer Sir Thomas Allen for being billed that way in Mrs. Henderson Presents. While at the same time, Christopher, Lord Haden-Guest, who could really pull rank on him (and has a much bigger part
in that film) seems content to be billed simply as Christopher Guest. (Or, as we'd all like to be known 'the guy who married Jamie Lee Curtis' ...
a/k/a Baroness Haden-Guest). Keep up the good work.
