Amy Schumer Doesn’t Steal Jokes from Other Comics, Because She Doesn’t Need To.

Amy Schumer arrives at the The 21st Annual Critics' Choice Awards at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif., on Jan. 17, 2016.

1.20.2016

Amy’s had a bit of a rough PR week just the past few days. She had to set a young Jackson Murphy straight when he tried to tweet a really NOT funny bit [ now deleted by Murphy after his live-tweeted come-uppance tweeted by Schumer ] about how he had slept with the comic, when he hadn’t. He also inferred that many other men had recently slept with Amy, in a sleazy, one-night-stand kind of way – and that’s when she had enough of it, and took to Twitter to straighten him out. Odds are this guy will never get to even stand in the near vicinity of any celebrity ever again, based on how he behaved after a brief social encounter with Amy. Don’t get out much do ya, Jackson? Duh.

“In case you missed it, 17-year-old Jackson Murphy, who runs the website Lights-Camera-Jackson, tweeted a photo of himself with Amy Schumer and joked: “Spent the night with @amyschumer. Certainly not the first guy to write that.” She responded: ‘I get it. Cause I’m a whore? Glad I took a photo with you. Hi to your dad.’ He then deleted the tweet and apologized, saying it was a failed effort to be funny. She forgave him.

The online reaction was mixed. Some praised her for calling out sexism. Others slammed her as a hypocrite. But we should all understand why Schumer responded as she did, and why so many people supported her.

As a star who speaks openly about her sex life, Schumer is bombarded daily by society’s double standard. A man who is openly sexual and has lots of sex with different partners is considered a playboy, an idol, a guy just doing what many guys do or want to do. A woman who does the same is criticized as troubled, lacking self-worth, or “slutty.” (When’s the last time anyone called a guy “slutty?”)”

Next Amy had to clear the air and answer serious allegations from three other female comedians that she sometimes steals jokes from other comics. Schumer is still responding, days later. She has even stated that she would take a lie detector test to prove she has NEVER stolen jokes from other comics.

My thoughts?  This woman’s everyday normal spoken out loud ‘stream of consciousness’ about her own life, spontaneously narrated on stage,  is so gut bustingly naturally funny that no one, anywhere, at any time, either now, or possibly ever in the future – will ever be able to compete with her as a comedian. To say that Amy is a natural at comedy would be the understatement of the year. I see no situation – ever – where she would need to stoop so low that she would steal a joke from another comic. What I do see – is that she has many very jealous enemies in the comedy community, who love to have the success that she has.

Not to MENTION that in the past two years she has written a hit TV show, received a Peabody Award for it, and written and starred in a hit movie [ See the trailer for Trainwreck movie trailer 2015 Amy Schumer if you have been living under a rock since last year ].

There is no more potent fuel for all-out jealousy than PURE TALENT. Keep on doing what you do Amy Schumer. If they are hating on you, it’s because they can’t do what you do – and they will never be able to. All the haters can do is sit on Twitter and throw eggs, poor sad little souls. Rock on, woman.

Shall I go on? WHO CARES what the teeny little haters and pop culture liars on Twitter have to say about Amy Schumer? OMG.

Madonna Was Always Sleazy, but Performing Drunk and Mocking Her Southern Concert Audience?

Some pop stars are just jerks, and there is really no other way to state it. The Material Girl built a multi-million dollar career on being outrageous – flaunting her disrespect for, well basically anything normal [ morals, limits, monogamy, et al ] but in her 50s, approaching 60, her touring life is hitting an all time low. Yes, we know she is embroiled in a bitter custody battle over her son, but everyday in America millions of other parents have to go into courtrooms and fight for the custody of their children too. They usually don’t decide to act out and show brazen displays of public drunkenness as a result. They wisely know that behaving in such a manner might not sit well with the judge. In Madonna’s case, she has always more or less considered herself to be just a little bit ‘above the law’. I’m sure there is a whole string of misbehaving incidents she’s been caught in that would get any other average American Joe or Jane quickly arrested and thrown in the slammer. But all we can do is blog about it. No one is going to approach the aging Queen of Pop with any really loud complaints. After all, she’s not that relevant anymore.

Odds are she’s touring because she actually needs the money. Can you imagine? How does someone go through nearly a half billion dollars in less than 20 years? I’m just saying. One thing people in the south can do is just stop buying tickets to her middle aged concerts, where she now stands on stage and openly mocks her audience, who she assumes to be too stupid  and / or country-fied to actually catch the overt disdain for them which is rolling out of her mouth. Besides that, her stage show is [ ahem ] OVERTLY DEMONIC and all you southern born upstanding Christian  people are not supposed to be supporting trash like that anyway. So what do y’all have to save for your sorry selves? Shame on ya for buying a trashy ole Madonna concert ticket in the first damn place! Who needs to see a close relative of the Great Whore of Babylon out there writhing around drunk in front of gaggle of red and black gay-boy demons in Satanic headdresses? I sure don’t.
