Just Because...A Royal Wedding Portrait

What A Feeling!
Prince Harry & Meghan Markle

Just Because I love black and white photography, Just Because the magic still lingers & Just Because they make such a great pair - here is the official portrait of Prince Harry & Meghan Markle brought to you by the words Royal & Wedding.

You know I really don't have much to say about posting this, since I am probably one of the last individuals covering and commenting on pop culture to do so. 

This beautiful image speaks for itself. You don't need me to tell you my impressions of it, because I am betting mine are simpatico with yours.

Plain and simple this image evokes positive energy. That's something everyone needs right here, right now. So let's go with it - what a feeling!

Smells Like Publicity Spirit

Feeling Blue?
Nikki Bella
When I first heard of the break-up of John Cena & Nikki Bella it made me a little sad. These two seem so tailor made for each other, and I am a fan of a happy ending.

It has since been revealed the reason for their parting of the ways is  her wanting to become a Mom and him not wanting to become a Dad. The latest season of their show Total Bellas premiered last night. Leading up to it John has been back paddling on all the talk shows he has been on promoting it by begging Bella to take him back and stating he will have children with her.

OK, I don't know about you, but this smells like one huge PR stunt to me at this point. No one who loves someone as much as he loves her would break-up over something like this in the first place, and then take it back, WTF?! 

If John really didn't want kids that badly he would not budge, period! I'm sure there will be a baby Cena/Bella bun in the oven in the not too distant future. Hope last night's ratings were the highest ever you two - just know you are not fooling this guy.

Just Because...George & Amal Clooney

One Word: Wow!
Amal & George Clooney
Just Because it's the day after the Royal Wedding, Just Because it's Sunday Funday & Just Because they looked so amazing here are, IMHO the best dressed couple who attended the wedding of the century George & Amal Clooney.

"Wow" was the word that came to mind when Amal showed up in this stunning yellow number that complimented her to perfection. It was a bold choice of color and hot damn, she worked it!

She also had a great accessory by her side, her husband George, ya know that Clooney guy. Who wisely ditched traditional black formal wear and went with a tailored gray number that completed his wife's out of the box color choice to perfection.

What's that you say?! "Yes" I did see the actual wedding, it was lovely. Honestly, we all need someone to look at us the way Harry looks at Meghan, the love those two have for  one another is obvious. It was the perfect anecdote to all the hate going on in the world around us to be reminded that love can, and will conquer all.

On that note, Michael has left the building...

Fairy Tales Do Come True!

Have To Believe We Are Magic
Prince Harry & Meghan Markle
With all the heinous things happening in the world around us, it's nice to witness a real life Fairy Tale - Once upon a time....

Thus let's pop open a bottle of our finest bubbly and toast to the union or Prince Harry & Meghan Markle on this May 19th 2018!

For those of you who think this event is frivolous, you may want to re-think that position. For better of for worse this Royal Wedding matters on so many levels, politically and psychologically.

How so? Let me break it down for you.

On the political front you have two philanthropists getting hitched who, in lieu of wedding gifts gave a list of charities they would like their guests give donations to. Meghan Markle is biracial, while I am at loathe to make this a point since it is 2018 - sadly it is still significant. It's the uniting of two different countries, think about it, but not too hard.

Psychologically with what seems like weekly mass shootings happening and the general state of the planet,this reminds us the magic of love really does exist. We need the escapism and pageantry right here, right now. There hasn't been a Cinderella story like this since Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier of Monaco.

"Yes" people today we are reminded that their is hope in the world and that Fairy Tales have the power to still come true when we choose love over hate. 

Congratulations to the happy couple.Let love rule!!!

"You Need An Ass Kickin' Right Now"



What the world needs now is D.O.A...Fight Back!

"You Need An Ass Kickin' Right Now" is the first video from D.O.A.'s new album Fight Back. Canada's legendary punks have always delighted in sticking it to pompous and despicable characters, so this new video carries on their fine tradition of defiance and irreverence.
"In our modern world that is stuffed with ever increasing episodes of racism, sexism, greed and warmongers, it's time say enough is enough, time to fight back," said Joe "Shithead" Keithley, the fearless leader of D.O.A. 

In "Ass Kickin'" he takes on callous and tragic characters like: Kanye, Putin, Harvey Weinstein, Xi Jingping, Trump, and many more. "My only regret is that the song is only one minute and 20 seconds long, so we ran out of time to include more," concluded Keithley.
D.O.A., the pioneering punks who set the bar high for punk and basically invented hardcore, are ready to rip it up on the occasion of their 40th anniversary. Their new album is called Fight Back and they are embarking on a worldwide tour to support this impressive new effort. The "Men of Action" are ready to take on all opposition and lay down a punk rock path of wild music and free thought. Their rough and ready line up is led by the godfather of Hardcore, Keithley (guitar, vocals) he is more than ably accompanied by the manic rhythm section of
Paddy Duddy (drums) and Corkscrew (bass).

You Need An Ass Kickin' Right Now

Early reviews indicate that Fight Back is the most innovative D.O.A. album since War on 45. D.O.A. has always been right on the pulse of what's going on in our screwed up world. Fight Back deals with what we have left, which in a lot of ways, is not much. 
"When you really think about it, income inequality and disparity is at the root of a lot huge problems, like environmental degradation, war, sexism and hate" said Keithley who has been fighting the good fight for the last 40 years. It's why he's made TALK - ACTION = 0 his lifelong mantra. 
Fight Back, released on Joe's own label Sudden Death Records, is a scathing and timely piece. Joe deals with all manner of unseemly low characters and issues. The album opens with acerbic "You Need an Ass Kickin' Right Now," next rips right into the startling "Killer Cops," then smashes into the anthemic "Time To Fight Back," which is street punk resistance at its fiercest. The album proceeds with the timely "Gonna Set You Straight" with violent and natural ease, and continues with the vitriolic "I Just Got Back From the USA." Then, the album takes a funny twist with "We Won't Drink This Piss" (down with bad corporate beer!) and "You Can't Stop Me," a song in which Joe delves into the character of Slapshot's playing coach Reggie Dunlop (a natural alter ego perhaps).
The "Men Of Action" are returning to the US for some unfinished business.

Michael's Musings

Michael Says, Relax...
Michael Shinafelt
What's happening minions I'm back for this weeks edition of Michael's Musings...Ooooops, I'm doing it again! 

There is one really specific thing on my mind of late. Me being fabulous over fifty, being that I have lost 41lbs! I am down to 172 from 213 - suck on that! Time to address adventures in being bad ass and other things, it's time to keep moving...!

Breaking News! A beautiful, super in love couple named Prince Harry & Meghan Markle are getting hitched Saturday! (OK, not breaking news, unless you have been living in a cave)

Yesterday before yoga I went to weigh in and the scale registered I was 178! I almost cried, until it hit me that I still had my yoga mat and gym bag in my hands. Yep! I'm still status quo.

Did lunch at Wahlburgers on the Sunset Strip with Ms. Jackie Kilmer & Mr. Ken Phillips Tuesday. Always skirting the edge of glory.

Whatever happened to Faye Ray?

Do you know why I am nicknamed the "Disco Stick?"

Hello my trick

Jennifer Garner needs to stop asking "What's in your wallet" because one day someone will let her know.

Dear Wine, it's me Michael


Hitting The Mat @ Gold's Gym Hollywood
Michael Shinafelt
911 - help I have become addicted to something I used to hate, yoga! PS Gold's Hollywood, U R Welcome for the free plug, again!

To my friend Maresa Wickham - "Fail" 

Just saw Meghan Markle's half sister is hospitalized with a broken ankle on E!Online. The only way this is news is if Meghan went all Tonya Harding on her ass!

Twitter Trolls, discuss -

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?

So glad I binged the first eight episodes of Famous In Love season two on Freeform this past weekend. While season one was meh, this season has really nailed it!

Hump Day & Chill

Who's That Guy???
Charlie DePew
This past weekend I just discovered that the second season of Famous In Love on Freeform had started and is eight episodes in, meaning it is almost over. What's a guy to do? Binge watch it of course!

While I found the first season OK, I took the plunge with the second because I happen to like Bella Thorne and, while I usually don't get into the young, there's something about Charlie DePew who plays her love interest Jake Salt on the show that, well you get the picture.

Am I glad I gave Famous In Love my own personal season two renewal? The answer is "Yes" this go round is a way more fully realized show, more astute and entertaining than it's freshman year.

Now that, that's out of the way I know what you want, what you really, really want - Charlie in the flesh!

Of course we have dandy un-coverage of young Charlie shirtless, with a partial booty call via Tye Briggs Favorite Hunks & Other Things. Just don't expect any full frontal or full buttal nudity in this post. Heck I don't even believe this post is NSFW - DAMN!

Charlie you really need to step it up in the skin department...that is all, Michael has left the building.

Hit the link below for a dude with a view named Charlie DePew - Yep, that rhymes.

Life's A Drag -

Scaling Drag Queen Heights
RuPaul & Friends
As we all know life can be a drag, a drag race that is! "No" I am not speaking of the kind that involves fast cars. I am talking about the kind that involves men appropriating women, lip synching for their lives and of course the biggest Mother of  Drag, RuPaul!

This past weekend the 4th annual RuPaul's DragCon happened right here, not now, in Los Angeles, CA.

Did I go? "No" but this photo of "Ru" cutting the ceremonial ribbon to kick it off with some of his "girls" is bright. cheery and colorful to say the least. Thus it made the Entertain Me cut, because that's the way I roll.

You've gotta hand it to Mr. Charles he really pushed drag to a whole other level of pop culture.

Enjoy your day and remember when life is a drag, just be a queen...

Monday Motivation

I'll Have What She's Having...
Marilyn Monroe
While I have drank coffee in the past, I am not really a coffee drinker. However at this very precise moment I wished I had some, right here, right now.

It's one of those bleeping mornings where a cup of caffeine would do my body some good. You know give me a Monday Motivation kick in the ass to jump start my day.

Thus I have resorted to an image of one of my favorite actresses of all time, Marilyn Monroe drinking the legendary brew, for a vicarious and hopefully energetic buzz.

Huh? What's that you say? How can I get a caffeine high without actually drinking it???

It's called acting darlings, acting.

Monday Motivation activated!

Mother's Day

Fun Times!
l-r
My Sister, Sue Waters, My Mom & Me
It's that day of the year again. You know the one set aside to acknowledge Mom's everywhere. 

So I tip my hat to all women out there who have taken on this important job. 

On that note let me tip my hat to the two special ones. "Yes" that's correct peeps it's time to meet my Sister and my Mom.

Needless to say I love them both and think they are both amazing in their own way. My Mom paid me a visit in Los Angeles this past Christmas and we had a blast.

My Sister, Sue Waters needs to, so we too can have a blast. In the meantime she is the Step Monster to my three nieces who call her that jokingly as a term of endearment.

The two of them have influenced my life in many wonderful ways and helped to make me the best version of myself I can be. So here's to the two of you and all the rest...

Happy Mother's Day!

Love,
Michael

The Home Stretch

Fairy Tale
Prince Harry & Meghan Markle
Last week was a reminder to "save the date" as it was two weeks away. Well this week we are hitting the home stretch. That's correct peeps, the Royal Wedding is now officially one week away, seven days and counting, the home stretch.

The thing is, this event couldn't come at a better time in the history of the world. What the world needs now is love, sweet love. Yeah, I cribbed that phrase from a song, but no truer words could be spoken presently.

Harry & Meghan are the fairy tale people need right here, right now. This is going to be one off the hook wedding and promises to deliver that happily ever after ending we all deserve. 

I'm sucker for magical moments and this will not disappoint. 

RSVP for Saturday May 19th Windsor Castle - I already have!

WTF?! "China Salesman"

WTF?!
For those out there who are clamoring for that Mike Tyson/Steven Seagal movie, and I am sure there are 2 or 3 of you. Well your wish has finally come true!

CHINA SALESMAN stars Mike Tyson, Steven Seagal, Dong-Xue Li, Janicke Askevold and Li Ai, with Eriq Ebouaney rounding out the cast. It was produced by China's Wanda Corporation, and written and directed by Chinese filmmaker Tan Bing. The film, with a reported budget of over $20 million, premieres theatrically this spring and had previously been a high profile title at last year's AFM.
Based on a true story, CHINA SALESMAN is a film about the dangerous and epic adventure to Africa where a Chinese engineer/salesman comes face-to-face with a corrupt competitor over the contract for the first African mobile telecom technology. Local tribesman Kabbah (Mike Tyson) and mercenary Lauder (Steven Seagal) get drawn into the conflict in a classic, brutal hand-to-hand fight while the entire country faces civil war battles.
CHINA SALESMAN will hit theaters on June 15th and DVDBlu-ray, and VOD on June 26th.

Pre-order at the MVD Shop and on Amazon

I'm going to pull my best self centered diva bullsh!t on your collective asses right now. In case you have been living under a rock, you should know Traci Lords dropped her latest single this week "Come Alive" - thus the lyric quote above. 

Yeah, I just can't get enough, it is my current  jam! This week has been a unique one don't really know what type of word vomit is going to spew out of it. I love it when even I have no clue of what I am going to regurgitate.

Deadpool 2 is opening soon in case you haven't heard. Oh, I think everyone has!

Hump Day & Chill

Number Two
Ryan Reynolds
With the release of Deadpool 2 drawing nigh, Ryan Reynolds is kind of on my mind. I mean that in the most - while he is an attractive guy, he doesn't do it for me, but I know a lot of you schwing when you see him, sort of way.

"Yes" I enjoyed the first Deadpool, will I be seeing the second? I'm not particularly feeling it. This was a one off escapist movie to me that would seem strained the second time around.

Butt I have to state Reynolds got booty. Oh yes, big fat booty. Wanna see more?! Well then my minions saunter over to the NSFW link at Tye Briggs Favorite Hunks & Other Things I have provided below.

Tye always gives the best Celebrity Skin (that's the name of a song by one of my favorite bands, Hole fronted by Courtney Love in case you are wondering why I capped it.) 

Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some humping and chilling to do!

Giving Pope Realness, Rihanna


Kiss The Ring
Rihanna
From what I gather the Met Gala was last night. For all of you recovering Catholics it must have been an intense experience of the third kind seeing Rihanna dressed in a custom look by Maison Margiela that was so Pope Francis

Me? Frankly it gave me a boner. Only Rihanna could pull this, that and a few other things off.

What's that? OK, here's an equal time comment for actual Catholics - are you writhing in blasphemy over this ultra amazing outfit? If so, I'm not surprised keep doing your thing, but please try to keep it to yourself. No one wants to hear it.

On that particular tangent I bid you all adieu

Fabulous @ 50 - Traci Lords!

Happy Birthday Traci!
Traci Lords
That's correct peeps the one and only Traci Lords turns the big five-oh today. Can you believe it?! So what's an Icon to do for her 50th? Why give her fans what they want most. New music and more Traci! 
I got Traci to slow down long enough to chat with me about her latest tune "Come Alive" and what it feels like for a grrrrrrl turning 50. After all that's what friends are for! It's time to lick it up!  
MS: Happy 50th, welcome to the tribe, how does it feel to be Fabulous & Fifty?
 TL: It’s about damn time!  I am so proud of everything I’ve accomplished and the life I live today. I can straight up tell you that I am happy, healthy and ready to finally take my place at the #elderbitches table! Bring it. 
MS: I wanted to tell you my sister's Birthday is the day after yours and she will be turning 50 as well.
TL: How funny!  Tell that Taurus woman that I wish her a very Happy Birthday!!!!
 MS: Any big plans to celebrate the beginning of another decade of living?
TL: I’m celebrating my 50th over the next year!  I’m going to do 5 things I’ve never done before. All of which must somehow terrify me! I’ll be traveling a lot, recording more music and really savoring time with  my husband and my little  boy! He’s growing up so fast and I love that I haven’t missed ANY of it. And yes, I will eat the cake. 



 MS: It's your party, what made you decide to gift your fans with the new single "Come Alive?"
TL: I really appreciate and love my fans.... without them there is no audience.  They have given me so much of their attention over the years and they have been relentless in their pleas for new music. But it’s been difficult for me to wrap my brain around. Thing is I  love to write and record  but I’m not in a band and I don’t consider myself an amazing singer. I’m more of a vocal stylist. Having said that, I’m excited to be collaborating with different people this year. I’m in an exploring stage.

 MS: Tell me what inspired the song. 
TL: "Come Alive" is about surrendering to what you ache for. When I write, I try to paint a picture. This story is really about the 17 year old Traci who created an ultra ego to dominate men and make her world okay. It’s about being out of control ( Control has always been my obsession! I am a Taurus!!!!). but somehow finding power while flailing.  It’s  about the stories we tell ourselves to deal with the shit life hands us. You know surviving.
"Come Alive" 
MS: Well I really like it. Are you planning a video for it? (Can I be in it?)  
 TLThank you so much Michael. The lyric video for "Come Alive" will be up on YouTube Today, my Birthday. 💋 The rest I’m not sure about yet! 

MS: What's the latest 411 on your Pin-Up Girl clothing line. 
TL: My Line at Pinup Girl is doing fantastic! I’ve had such an amazing time working with Laura Byrnes and my team. There’s so much creatively that’s going on in fashion right now. And I have several new pieces due out for summer that are truly classic vintage must have staples. Also, season 2 of our hilarious comedy series Swedish Dicks is landing on Pop TV this July 26. My character Jane McKinney is dressed head to toe in original Pinup Girl designs. We will be releasing the Jane collection as the show airs! 
MS: Tell me one thing that you want for your Birthday that money can't buy.
TL: Tomorrow
 MS: Who are you listening to at present (pun intended) 

TL: These days, no pun intended, I am listening to myself.That's the great part of being an elder bitch. (laughs) Musically though, for real  I am listening to Avicii remixes. I'm blown away that he is no longer on the planet, he was gone so young. I'm feeling a little nostalgic at the moment. I've been listening to the Pet Shop Boys, with a little Pat Benatar and some Blondie thrown in. "Yes" I'm in an eighties state of mind.

Elder Bitches in the Driver's Seat
Me & Traci
MS: Invite some famous people to celebrate Fabulous Fifty with you living or not, who would they be?
TL: Cleopatra, Brian Wilson, and Sid Vicious

MS: Any exciting acting gigs coming up?

TL: Season 2 of Swedish Dicks airs July 26 on Pop TV and my new indie film Steam Room Stories will start playing the festivals this Fall. 💋

Look it's Laverne Cox & Lea Michele flapping their respective fins like barking seals at the GLAAD Media Awards in New York City.

What's that??? "No" I have nothing against either of them. It was simply the alternative fact image that came to my mind when I spied this pic on the WWW. So don't get your undies in a bind.

Just Because...Michelle Obama

Still Making a Difference
Michelle Obama
Just Because we need some grace, dignity & class right here, right now. Just Because I miss her and Just Because she is still out there making a positive impact on people's lives -"Yes" it's a Michelle Obama kind of day!

Here she is encouraging higher education to the youth of our country by making an appearance at the 5th annual College Signing Day.

Although I loved the image of President Obama making Melania Trump smile, since she needed one. I love this even more.

Honestly, Michelle was one of our greatest First Ladies ever. I would never say greatest about anyone, I don't play favorites. There are other First Ladies who have done wonderful things as well.

She is also proving it by continuing the legacy she started and not remaining quiet, when she could have easily done that.

Empowerment to the people!

Not having seen Red Sparrow starring the one and only Jennifer Lawrence (judging by the box office most of you didn't either) I was not aware of the gratuitous full frontal male nudity by actor David Zoltan Miller in the abovementioned sex ed class. Oh, and I wasn't aware that the great Charlotte Rampling was in it as well, until now.

Suffice it to say Miller who portrays Viktor delivers the audience a very nice package. Thus my um, salute, to him as today's Hump Day & Chill Man Meat, I was going to say Man Candy, but given the graphic images that accompany Tye's un-coverage, well you get my drift.

Today let us give thanks that we didn't have to actually sit through the movie to see David Zoltan Miller's delicious, you know what.

Bye, Bye,Bye

That Time When...
NSYNC, Ellen DeGeneres & Carson Daly
When boy band NSYNC disbanded in 2002, I never thought we would hear from them again collectively as a group, individually, of course, but as a whole unit?! 

Just when you thought it was safe to walk down Hollywood Blvd. NSYNC got their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, yesterday, April 30th 2018. Hence me titling this entry "Bye, Bye, Bye" because it is the only song by the boys that I can recall.

"No" I was not one of their fans. Seriously I don't think I am the target audience for a boy band, not being a teenage girl.

But, when I saw this image of them with Ellen DeGeneres & Carson Daly in tow...WTF?! It made me nostalgic for a simpler, sillier time in the history of the world. "Yes" sometimes I have odd triggers.

So let's kick off this first of May, or May Day as it were with some good vibes. You know you want them.
