We know you, dear MamaPop readers, have lives. Places to go, things to do, jobs to keep and what-not. Which is why we now offer you a look back on the week that was on MamaPop by way of our most popular posts of the past seven days. Please to enjoy.
There are only three Fridays the 13th this year, so horror fans must revel as we can. And since today, April 13, is the only hallowed day before Mother’s Day (or summer camp season) and since the queen of all horror movie mamas, Mrs. Voorhees, hailed from the eponymous masterwork, there’s no time like the present to celebrate the horror movie mom.
Time was that your parents could only embarrass you by kissing you in front of your friends or by professing their mutual admiration for U2 while confusing the lead singer with one of Cher’s ex-husbands. Now they can just go on Twitter and accuse you of sleeping with one of your dead dad’s co-workers. Ah, Progress! Turns out frequent Profiles In Instability award winner (and sometime guitar holder), Courtney Love did just that to her daughter Frances Bean. Miss Cobain, in turn, took to the same platform imploring Twitter to ban her mother forever. Here are some other celeb parents that should stop tweeting…or never start.
Yes, this diet is a REAL THING that is ACTUALLY HAPPENING at the hands of ACTUAL DOCTORS. And thank goodness for that! I mean, you can totally tell from the photo above that K-E dieter Jessica Schnaider desperately needs to lose that last ten pounds. What’s with that clavicle? Sure, I can see it, BUT I CAN’T HANG DRY CLEANING FROM IT, so hook yourself up to a feeding tube already and lose an amount of weight that matters to no one but yourself because LORD KNOWS no one will ever love you if you don’t.
In a move that proves a close genetic connection between rockstars and toddlers, Axl Rose, famed front man of the late 80s rock band Guns N’ Roses, threw a temper tantrum and refused to appear at the former band’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony Friday night. When the band’s induction was announced in February, many hoped to see the first reunion since 1993 of the original GNR band members from their 1987 debut album Appetite for Destruction.
Coachella ’12 will always be known as either the creepiest, most exploitative, most inspirational, or most innovative show of its time, depending on what you thought of the Tupac hologram that performed alongside Dre and Snoop. Whether you’re pro or con on the issue, holograms are here to stay. Now that we can pretty much fabricate, upload, and project anyone living or dead, I’d like to take this opportunity to call dibs on some of them.
