Your Daily Dispatch of Celebrity Shenanigans
Jon Hamm Addresses The Elephant In The... Room: Jon Hamm would like everyone to stop talking about his nether regions. After a report surfaced claiming his manhood had become a distraction on the set of "Mad Men" due the show's tight '60s-era trousers, the actor is speaking out about the matter to Rolling Stone. "Most of it's tongue-in-cheek, but it is a little rude," he told the mag. "They're called 'privates' for a reason... I'm wearing pants, for f***'s sake. Lay off." The actor admitted that his life in the spotlight (and online shenanigans regarding his crotch) are not the worst thing in the world to deal with. "I mean, it's not like I'm a f***king lead miner. There are harder jobs in the world," he said. "But when people feel the freedom to create Tumblr accounts about my c***, I feel like that wasn't part of the deal." But is there a silver lining to having your goods talked about so much? "But whatever, I guess it's better than being called out for the opposite," he added.
Billion Dollar Material Madge?: Madonna already has more money than we can fathom, but according to a new report from Women's Wear Daily (via The New York Post's Page Six), the pop queen is now part of the billion-dollar club! She reportedly made an astounding $305,158,363 off her "MDNA" tour last year, plus $75 million from merchandise and another $10 million from TV and DVD sales from the tour. This haul was on top of her reported $700 million worth. And now, the mag reports that lucrative investing in Vita Coco and the gym chain Hard Candy - plus dough from her perfume, a deal with Smirnoff, her Material Girl clothing line and an upcoming lingerie line at Macy's has launched her in to the billion category. Mazel to Madonna!
