Pop Culture Week In Review – 6/22-6/28

Pop Culture Week In Review – 6/22-6/28
Lindsay Krumel

In today’s Pop Culture Week In Review we look at celebrity reactions to the death of DOMA, two fantastic movie trailers and the you-saw-it-coming moment of the year… the demise of Paula Deen, however surprisingly not at the hands of fried chicken.

Anchorman 2

There is perhaps no movie I’m looking forward to more than Anchorman 2.  While I find it hard that it’ll be able to match the hilarity level of the original, adding cast members Kristen Wiig, Jim Carey, Kirsten Dunst, Harrison Ford, James Marsden, Liam Neeson, Sacha Baren Cohen, Tina Fey, Greg Kinnear, Amy Poehler, and Kanye definitely helps it’s case.

Drinking Buddies

It would be heinous to not mention that there’s a movie coming out that loosely revolves around the craft beer industry, but mainly focuses on being a rom-com.  And while Drinking Buddies does include the likes of Oliva Wilde, Anna Kendrick and Jake Johnson of “The New Girl” fame, I don’t see this one getting rave reviews.  The movie was filmed at Chicago’s Revolution Brewery which is cool, so it’s at least got that going for it.

Obama Gettin’ Lucky

Some kid mashed up snippets from Obama’s speechs to make him sing Daft Punk ft. Pharrell’s Get Lucky… and I’m completely ok with that!

Not so surprisingly Paula Deen is racist/crazy

It was about time… I’ve always know this woman was senile and most likely racist… I mean what kind of person still uses that amount of lard, is from the south, and isn’t racist?  Also this:

“You wanna let’s do it?”… her cackles will haunt me for years.


In some of the biggest news this week, the Defense of Marriage Act, also known as DOMA, was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court of the United States, extending federal benefits to married gay couples. 84-year-old Edie Windsor sued the federal government after the IRS denied her refund request for the $363,000 in federal estate taxes she paid after her spouse, Thea Spyer, died in 2009. Below are some celeb reactions to the ruling:

Followed by a proposal:
