Drake goes off on Macklemore for rap apology

Posted: February 14, 2014

YO, MACKLEMORE, Drake thinks your Instagram apology to Kendrick Lamar over your rap Grammy win was "wack."

Actually, he said, "that s--- was wack as f---."

"I was like, 'You won. Why are you posting your text message?' " Drake tells Rolling Stone. "Just chill. Take your W, and if you feel you didn't deserve it, go get better - make better music. It felt cheap. It didn't feel genuine. Why do that? Why feel guilt? You think those guys would pay homage to you if they won?"

"This is how the world works," he went on. "He made a brand of music that appealed to more people than me, Hov, Kanye and Kendrick. Whether people wanna say it's racial, or whether it's just the fact that he tapped into something we can't tap into. That's just how the cards fall. Own your s---.

"To name just Kendrick? That s--- made me feel funny. No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!"

New, improved virgin?

According to Life & Style, teen mom-turned-porn star Farrah Abraham has announced she's swearing off sex.

Farrah explains to the mag that her experience in porn has soured her on sex for good. "People use sex for power and manipulation when sex is supposed to be enjoyable and great," she says, adding, "I don't feel that. I want to be a virgin forever - or a nun."

Ship.

Sailed.

See, Farrah, since you're a mom and all, this "virgin" thing kind of went out the window. Having sex on camera makes it even more difficult to turn back time. You starred in "Backdoor Teen," not "Backdoor to the Future."

* Oh, and according to fishwrapper.com, Farrah's new porn film, "Farrah 2: Back Door and More," was released yesterday by Vivid.

Too much losing

How did "Biggest Loser" winner Rachel Frederickson get off those final pounds in her overzealous quest for $250,000?

An unnamed insider told In Touch that she went to an infrared sauna, which heats the body using infrared radiation to burn calories and boost metabolism.

"She came in almost every day for 2 1/2 weeks before the finale," said the source. "You can burn up to 600 calories in a half-hour session, although everyone is different," the source explained.

As we've seen before on "Biggest Loser," contestants occasionally replace their food addiction with an addiction to exercise.

"I'd be doing Zumba and then I'd go to spin class . . . [and] now I like to go running," Rachel said.

With an intake of only 1,600 calories a day, spread over five small meals, if Rachel keeps up that training schedule she may lose weight until she disappears entirely.

Bringin' the 'Pain'

"Painkiller Jane" is coming to the big screen.

According to Tattle Comics Guy Jerome Maida, the character created by Joe Quesada and Jimmy Palmiotti, already adapted twice before, continues to come back stronger.

In 2005, Emmanuelle Vaugier played the title role in a TV-movie on the Sci-Fi Channel. Ratings were mediocre, but Sci-Fi saw enough potential in the character to green-light a 2007 series starring Kristanna Loken, which was axed after one season.

Now, it is Solipsist Films, the company behind the upcoming comic-book sequel "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For," who sees box-office potential for "Jane."

"[Co-writer] Craig Weedon and I are really delighted to have this deal between Solipsist Films and us," Palmiotti said in an exclusive interview with Comics Guy. "We had just finished the screenplay and had interest right out of the gate with a couple of companies, but Stephen L'Heureux of Solipsist was the most aggressive of the bunch and totally understood what I was looking for."

"Unlike the past 'Painkiller Jane' deals, this time the script was co-written by me, directly based on the books I wrote, and I was looking for the right partnership that understood what 'Jane' was all about and not looking to make the property fit someone else's needs," Palmiotti added. "With 'Jane' on its way, I'm now able to finish the next screenplay Craig and I have coming up called 'Cursebreaker,' a gothic horror story about a haunted Northeastern town."

TATTBITS

Life & Style says that Tori Spelling is spending between $60,000 to $70,000 a month on husband Dean McDermott's rehab bill.

That's a nice sum to spend on a man accused of cheating on you.

* We saw the TMZ.com headline " Suge Knight attacks pet shop owner" and thought, sheesh, what got Suge so riled up.

Then we reread it and it said "Suge Knight attacks pot shop owner" and we thought what kind of pot is Suge smoking? He should be a lot more mellow.

The actual problem: Suge was told to leave the California pot store because he didn't have his medical-marijuana card.

Suge's take: He'd agreed to an in-store return for a tokin' of appreciation from the establishment and they went back on the deal.

Paula Deen has found a key ingredient to bringing some sizzle back to her career - a cash infusion worth at least $75 million from a private investment firm.

The Savannah, Ga.-based celebrity cook announced yesterday that she's launched a company that will oversee her restaurants, cookbooks, product endorsements and other remaining peach pie slices of her media empire. The new company, called Paula Deen Ventures, said private-equity firm Najafi Cos. is investing $75 million to $100 million to help Deen make a comeback.

Tattle, however, believes that with the $75 million, our new owner - shhh, it's a BIG secret - plans to revolutionize the newspaper business by printing the Inquirer and Daily News each morning on warm, buttery biscuits.
