Musician Lenny Kravitz is being honored for saying something remarkably sexist in an interview. “I personally think women should be running the world...I believe women are so much more sensible, have so much better intuition, and ultimately are stronger.”

Glamour.com raved: “And our favourite celebrity of the day is... Lenny Kravitz! Why? Because he recognises how wonderful us women are. That's right - Lenny Kravitz thinks women should be running the world because they are stronger and more sensible than men.”

Well, we know Chris Rock has a movie coming out next week.  He’s been making the rounds on different media outlets, talking about the issues of the day – recently talking race relations, the Ferguson verdict, even sharing his views about race in Hollywood in an article for the December 12 issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

In what The Hollywood Reporter calls a “Blistering Essay on Hollywood's Race Problem", Rock doesn’t hold anything back when talking about race relations in Hollywood, even comparing Hollywood industry to that of the NBA: “Just as the NBA is a black industry. I'm not even saying it's a bad thing. It just is,” he wrote.

In the latest example of “Please just shut up and act,” actor Christian Bale, star of Ridley Scott’s upcoming Biblical epic “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” has equated Moses with modern day terrorists.

“[He was] absolutely seen as a freedom fighter for the Hebrews, but a terrorist in terms of the Egyptian empire.”

Washington Post reporter Hunter Schwarz threw a major embarrassment at the liberal group Rock the Vote – just by checking the facts.

Hot-tempered comedian Lewis Black has never been shy when it comes to taking on controversial topics, and his latest crusade has paired the foul-mouthed performer with the American Civil Liberties Union in an attempt to “F@&* Voter Suppression,” particularly through requiring voters to have IDs with their picture on them.

In a fake “photo shoot” with Dale Ho, director of the ACLU's voting rights program, Black declares: “Elected officials shouldn't get to choose who gets to choose elected officials! Look, people marched and fought and died for the right to vote, and they wanna legislate away that sacrifice to stay in power? Not on my watch, baby!

Even Us Magazine is noticing movie star Gwyneth Paltrow oozing all over President Obama at a $32,500-a-head fundraiser in her back yard on Thursday: “overcome with nerves, the actress stumbled a little before passing the microphone off to the President, telling him flirtatiously, ‘You're so handsome that I can't speak properly.’”

That came after she declared "I am one of your biggest fans, if not the biggest," before praising him for being an "incredible role model." While Obama’s approval rating is in the dumps – in general and on specific issues – he could probably use some of that old 2008 bowing and scraping.

The Sunday newspaper supplement Parade Magazine carried an interview Sunday with Tea Leoni, star of the new CBS series Madam Secretary, who confirmed that the infamous “What difference does it make?” testimony of Hillary Clinton on Benghazi inspired the new show.

Actor Viggo Mortensen hasn’t been in any big movies since he played Aragorn in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, but now he’s promoting his new movie with Kirsten Dunst called “The Two Faces of January.” He stopped by Huffington Post Live September 16, to talk about the movie, but if a Huffington Post reporter is interviewing, you can be sure they will find a way to bash conservative media any chance they get.

As the interview turned to the actor’s past expressed liberal opinions, Mortensen lamented how most people only turn to media that reaffirms their own viewpoints, but claimed he was different because he tried to listen to right-wing news, but it was so offensive he can only listen in “small doses.” He called liberal radio is not as "brazen a form of lying" as Fox News.

The “Christian Right” is not only “homophobic”  but also actively experiments on gays with science, according to “Sherlock” actor Benedict Cumberbatch.                                                                                   

In an interview with Marlow Stern of The Daily Beast published Sept. 8, the English actor also said that the U.S. needs to have a woman president next, followed by a gay president. Cumberbatch’s comments were apparently inspired by the lyrics to a Morrissey song.

Somebody takes Russell Brand seriously. You know, the British comic actor? The one known mostly for his brief marriage to pop star Katy Perry? He’s that guy that did the abysmal remake of the classic movie “Arthur.” Maybe you know him for his drug use?

Anyway, people actually watch Brand’s Youtube video channel, “The Trews,” for his take on the issues of the day. The Huffington Post, NPR, Upworthy, The Washington Post and The Guardian have published his opinions. That’s despite (or more likely because) the fact that those opinions are unoriginal, often hate-filled, intolerant left-wing rants that run to conspiracy theories about corporations and “power structures.” He’s a celebrity of sorts eager to communicate opinions that news and entertainment media elites mostly share, so they’re happy to give him a platform.

In May, actress Shailene Woodley upset the leftists by saying “No” to the question “Do you consider yourself a feminist?” Her first words to Time magazine were “No, because I love men.” Now actress Chloe Grace Moretz, five years younger than Woodley, is suggesting Woodley isn't very smart.

In the September issue of the women's-beauty magazine Allure – on which they make the 17-year-old “Diary of A Wimpy Kid” actress look like she’s 30 – Moretz whacked Woodley as failing to understand that feminism just means standing up for yourself, standing up for what other women have done for you:
