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.

Amy’s had a bit of a rough 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 about unsubstantiated Twitter rumors [ those tweets now deleted ] that she sometimes steals jokes from other comics. Are you KIDDING me? This woman’s everyday normal spoken out loud ‘stream of consciousness’ about her own life 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.

Not to MENTION that 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 ].

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

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.

Adele’s New CD Release “25” Just a Few Days Away! Fabulous Sneak Previews

Adele Returns with “Make Up” Album ’25’

By Radio.com Staff

Adele returns this week with a new album titled 25.

Her third studio effort arrives five years after her massive sophomore set 21 which has sold over 30 million records world-wide.

On October 21st Adele took to Twitter to address her fans, and announce her return to music. “I’m sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened,” she wrote.

“My last record was a break up record and if I had to label this one I would call it a make up record. I’m making up with myself. making up for lost time. making up for everything I ever did and never did.”

The first single from 25 is “Hello” which debuted in the form of a cinematic video directed by Canadian actor/director Xavier Dolan.

 

The six minute mini-movie was shot in the countryside surrounding Montreal and co-stars Mack Wilds, known for his roles as on HBO’s The Wire and the CW’s 90210.

“It was a privilege to direct the music video for Adele’s beautiful, heartbreaking song” said Dolan in a prepared statement. “When I first heard it, all the images were already running by so clearly in my head – and her trust and generosity allowed me to create freely.”

Adele then shared a second single, “When We Were Young.” The video of her performance was recorded at The Church Studios in London, where some of 25 was recorded.

Fans are certainly excited for Adele’s return, according to Billboard “Hello” is the first song ever to sell at least 1 million downloads in one week. But when Adele spoke to with Carson Daly on AMP 97.1 in Los Angeles she confessed that she considered retiring from music all together. It was her son Angelo who inspired her to return.

“For awhile I was like, maybe I shouldn’t come back,” she admitted. “Maybe I should go out on a high. Maybe everyone likes what they’ve heard of me. And then I realized I want my kid to know what I do. He’s really inspired me.”
