He's just asking to be sued! Literally...
Some of the celebrities whose naked likenesses made an appearance in Kanye West's new 'Famous' video have actually spoken out to assure the public that they are not, in fact, in the video. Y'know, just in case you genuinely thought George Bush and Donald Trump would ever get naked in bed together. West is very surprised he's not been sued yet, but there's still time.
Kanye West is waiting to be faced with a lawsuit. Or two. Or three.
In fact, former President of the United States George W. Bush actually seemed quite relaxed about the whole thing, though he did want to point out that the lookalike or wax figure or whatever was used was not representative of his current physique. 'In case there was any doubt, that is not President Bush. He is in much better shape', a representative for the former President told TMZ.

‘Famous’ was premiered live on Tidal, Friday (June 24) during West’s show at the Forum in Los Angeles.
Kanye West’s new video for ‘Famous’ might just be his most controversial and thought-provoking work yet. Visuals from the video premiered on Friday night and fans watching live on Tidal couldn't believe their eyes, as uncanny likenesses of celebs including Taylor Swift, Amber Rose, Bill Cosby and Caitlyn Jenner all appeared on screen completely naked.
Kanye West has unveiled his ‘Famous’ video.
Introducing the video West told the crowd: "I wanna thank Eli first of all who was in the project every day …I don't wanna give away how it all happened. I wanna thank all my family, my wife, and y'all supporting ideas and truth. I got one question though. Would you like me to play that back?”
After reviewing the list of potential Republican Party candidates, George W Bush has decided he wants a third term.
Will Ferrell made his return to ‘Saturday Night Live’ yesterday evening (December 12th) as former US president George W. Bush. Bush made an appearance to give his thoughts on the current crop of Republican presidential candidates, concluding that what we really need is for him to come back for a third term.
Will Ferrell has returned to ‘SNL’, as George W. Bush.
“This is an important day, I’ve made a big decision, I’m entering the race for President of the United States of America,” Ferrell as Bush began. “The field of Republicans out there is so messed up, I figured it makes you miss me”.
Who'd want to kill Bush!?
What assassination? Bush is in a confident mood
According to a federal court complaint filed buy the U.S. District Court in Manhattan, Benjamin Smith threatened to "kill, kidnap and inflict bodily harm" on Bush and professed his love for Barbara, one of Bush’s twin daughters. As Smith – a resident of upstate New York - was being arrested, he screamed "Bush will get his” according to the complaint.
We predict that painting of Leno's head is worth... $56 bucks.
To be fair to ol’ George Bush, there aren’t any Presidents that aren’t maligned, but his was a special breed of maligned; every ridiculous sentence that came out of his mouth contained something worth satirizing, assuming he hadn’t managed to do it himself.
And now that he’s out of office, the 67-year-old has decided that painting is the best thing for him to do. He actually took up the hobby soon after he left office, and even hired a teacher to help him hone his craft. "There's a Rembrandt trapped in this body. Your job is to find it,” he told his teacher, Bush revealed while talking to Jay Leno.
Bush shared a painting of his dog Barney and a stray cat that he adopted called Bob, but it was a portrait of Jay Leno that really stole the show. "I can't make fun of him now,” announced the veteran talk show host after seeing his already ridiculous face in an even more absurd format.

First Grandchild for former President
Congratulations to Jenna Bush Hager who has given birth to her first child!
We weren’t sure who she was either. But that was a bit silly of us because she is of course the granddaughter of the last US president George W Bush! In fact, the news was announced by the former Prez, managing to do so without making any cock-ups, promising war on any developing nations or debating humanity’s co-existence with fish. Good work George. "Laura and I are thrilled to announce the birth of our grandchild, Margaret Laura 'Mila' Hager," the former president and his wife said in a joint statement released on Sunday (April 14, 2013). The statement went on to say: "Mila, daughter of Jenna and Henry Hager, is named for her grandmothers. She was born last night, April 13, at 8:43 p.m. in New York City." Furthering, it said: "We met our beautiful granddaughter today. Jenna and Mila are healthy. And our family is elated."
It had been announced that Hager was expecting back in December, according to E! Online, which makes the tot the former President and First Lady’s first grandchild, and the first niece for Jenna’s twin Barbara. Jenna married Henry back in 2008.

George W. Bush's truck - a 2009 Ford F-150 King Ranch SuperCrew - has sold for $300,000 at auction, to raise money for a house charity that benefits U.S. military families. The white pickup truck was sold as part of the Barrett-Jackson auction house's sale of collectible cars in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The former President and his wife Laura Bush used the pickup at their ranch in Crawford, Texas, where they would frequently entertain guests, family and visiting dignitaries. "I haven't driven on a street in many, many years, but I have been able to drive this truck on my ranch," Bush said in a statement. To add value to the auction, President Bush signed the right airbag panel of the vehicle and the anonymous buyer also received a video of Bush driving the truck around his ranch, situated about 120 miles from his Dallas home. Proceeds from the sale benefit the Fisher House Foundation, a charity that provides free houses for families of military service members who are receiving medical treatment, according to MSN.com.
The question is, which vehicle would you rather own - George Bush's pickup truck, or the BATMOBILE? The latter - driven by Adam West in the original Batman TV series - was sold at the same auction for $4.6 million! It ties the record for the highest selling movie of TV car at auction, with Sean Connery's famous Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger going for the same amount in 2010.

HBO have confirmed that a documentary surrounding the powerful political figure, Bill Clinton, will be directed by Martin Scorsese. There is, however, no confirmed date as to when it will air, neither is there a title.
"A towering figure who remains a major voice in world issues, President Clinton continues to shape the political dialogue both here and around the world," Scorsese said in a statement. "Through intimate conversations, I hope to provide greater insight into this transcendent figure." Scorsese has forged a close working relationship with HBO, working on two separate documentaries with them, as well as with the entertainment side of their broadcasting, as he helmed the pilot episode of Boardwalk Empire, which has recently wrapped up its third season, with more on the way. Scorsese, of course, brings a wealth of moviemaking prowess with him, which will transform any documentary into a cinematic event as well as a fact-telling endeavour. As was the case with 41 - the doc about George H.W. Bush, which premiered last summer - Clinton's will be made with his full cooperation.
"I am pleased that legendary director Martin Scorsese and HBO have agreed to do this film," President Clinton added. "I look forward to sharing my perspective on my years as President, and my work in the years since, with HBO's audience."
Jenna Bush Hager has become the latest high profile celebrity to become knocked up, with her former President father George Bush reported to be delighted with the news.
The former first daughter of President Bush took to the 'Today' show on NBC to reveal the exciting news. "We're so excited and obviously nervous," she confessed. "I'm a first time mom. This is something I've always wanted. I'm a teacher and I love kids." Jenna was surprised on the show by her husband of four years Henry Hager who presented her with a bunch of flowers. The show also rang up her mother and father who 'thrilled' for their daughter. "We're thrilled, we're just absolutely thrilled," said Barbara Bush. "I'm thrilled for Jenna and Henry and thrilled for George and me to have the grandchildren that we've been really looking forward to." The former president admitted that he was "fired up" about the news and is looking forward to telling all his friends.
Jenna, whose baby is due in Spring next year, revealed that they attempted to keep the news a secret for as long as possible. "We've been able to keep it a secret and just us - it's so sacred - for a pretty long time, longer than most, but obviously, I'm going to start getting bigger and bigger," she said.

If anyone imagines that the answer to that question is yes, this documentary stands to wipe out that rosy picture. Sadly and profoundly, the tendency in the human race to gather into groups that think themselves superior to others is alive and well in the Mormon community of Utah where, in some places, principles of democracy, inclusion, and concepts like freedom of speech just don't apply.

Nerenberg's Stupidity is a frequently fascanating but sometimes wandering work that provides some insight into the nature of dumbness. There's a history lesson here: "Idiot" and "imbecile" have specific IQ levels they correspond to, and "moron" is a whole other thing of its own. Talking heads like Bill Maher and Noam Chomsky describe stupidity in our current culture (with Jackass and George W. Bush taking the brunt of the heat), and some of the intellectual discussion here is fascinating. If nothing less, it makes you think twice when you call someone or something "stupid," because of the loadedness of the term.

Moore claims his film is not really about politics. And yet, even before Fahrenheit 9/11 is released, there is already more than enough controversy to go around. Moore's film walked away with the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival, but Disney backed out of the deal to release it. While Fahrenheit eventually landed with Lions Gate, this early firestorm is just the kind of publicity Moore relishes.

Bush's Brain is based on the book of the same name by Wayne Slater, Dallas Morning News bureau chief in Austin and TV correspondent James C. Moore, both of whom are extensively interviewed in the film. Both long-time Texan journalists, they've been covering Bush and Rove for years - the wry Slater is especially engaging and sharp-witted, as he proved before in the documentary Journeys with George - and it's in the Texas-based sections of the film that it's most successful.

Point for point, I agree with just about everything mordant muckraker Michael Moore has to say in his gun violence documentary "Bowling for Columbine," but pardon me if I shoot the messenger (ooh, the horrible pun!) for his propagandist approach to the subject that comes close to crippling his credibility.
Inspired in part by the 1999 school shootings in Colorado that lend the film its title (teenage gunmen Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold went bowling before school the day they killed 12 classmates and a teacher), this film is a potent and sometimes profound bully-pulpit examination of the extent of our nation's propensity for violence, and a quest for the problem's roots. In the tradition of his General Motors-haranguing sardonic-umentary "Roger and Me," Moore travels the U.S. and Canada interviewing city officials, riding along on training missions with the Michigan militia, and opening an account at a small-town bank where free checking also comes with a free firearm (no fooling).
The man has a talent for giving his interviewees just enough rope to hang themselves, like James Nichols -- the borderline-psychotic brother of Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols -- does when he gladly volunteers that "it's an American responsibility to be armed." Soon thereafter he jokingly puts a loaded gun to his head before launching into a conspiracy diatribe that almost has him foaming at the mouth.
