Chad Moriyama: Matt Kemp & Rihanna Rumored To Be Back Together, Fans Panic

As the story goes, Matt Kemp‘s 2010 was ruined because he was distracted due to his relationship with pop star Rihanna. No, it wasn’t his horribly flawed swing that was to blame, because that would require actual analysis, it was his girlfriend (and if that sounded like a canned scene from “Moneyball“…yeah).

So as I’ve come to expect, with the recent rumor that they are back together again, Dodgers fans have resumed flipping out over whether to sign him to an extension or not, fearing the 2010 down year more than ever.

Of course, that entire rhetoric is somewhat misguided, especially considering there are decent odds that Kemp was with Rihanna for the entirety of the 2011 season as it is.

*Cough* what? When has Rihanna NOT been a dirty little slut? Not that there is anything wrong with that... *goes to watch the music video for SOS (the European one - we get all the vids that are deemed too kinky for the US*

#3 I'm not sure how you get dirty little slut from "Hey Mr DJ". I thought she was heading down the pretty popstar route.

Kind of funny -- first time I saw that video I thought of Alanis Morisette's first offerings.

I don't think of Rihanna either as damaged or as the sexiest woman alive. It bothers me that I find so many of her songs catchy, but I like the fact that she seems to control her own image, as opposed to letting others control it (the opposite of Britney, for example).
   16. Swedish Chef Posted: October 17, 2011 at 02:51 PM (#3966104)
Rihanna: That's it! I'm leaving you!
Matt: But honey, I love you.
Rihanna: Shut up you, I used to think you were special, but now...
Matt: But Ri...
Rihanna: I said shut up, I can't be with a man that's barely above average in production, I thought you were going to amount to something, build on your strong early seasons and become a superstar. But, now, what the hell is this: 106 OPS+, 2.3 WAR! I can hear mrs Pujols snigger, look at that poor woman hitched to that mediocrity. No, this won't work, I thought I got together with Willie Mays, and what did I get? JEFF ####### FRANCEOUR! (Runs out of the room sobbing)

It's funny. I think of women the way a sportswriter thinks about a baseball player.

Amen seconded.

Rihanna used to be sweet and cute and sexy as hell, but, maybe this is just me, I do not find a woman hogtied and singing a song called "S&M" sexy in any way, especially when her transition to that state of depravity has been in full public view. Its like watching your niece turn into a stripper. Her latest song is basically about getting sh*tfaced. Real classy stuff.

Rihanna appeared on MuchMusic (Canadian MTV equivalent) when she was first becoming popular, and the male host was so obviously tonguetied/dumbstruck/redfaced by her presence that he couldn't hide it at all, and after she left the set his female co-host razzed him pretty good.

Faye Dunaway's not dead yet, but she's got my vote for sexiest woman ever. Her in Bonnie & Clyde is about as good as it gets. Sophia Loren is another one right up there. A photo does her no justice whatsoever.

She has all sorts of problems with that one in the out-takes. Though my favourite out-take is from the final season where Lisa tells Dave that she's just trying to get between him and Max. To which Dave responds "I wish you would have told me you were into that kind of thing when we were dating". Lisa ad-libs - "oh yeah, I would have ###### both of you".

Speaking of sexy women, for a certain generation of guys who had a crush on Lisa Miller as a kid, that is quite a delightfully filthy line.

That comment was aimed at her general whorishness, which includes getting shitfaced. And she's not a hard rock band, she's a pop singer who's target audience is teen and pre-teen girls. Big difference.

I went to see the Kings of Leon on Ottawa on the weekend. It was a good show, but I would have liked to have heard more stuff from their first two albums. The show was at the Scotiabank Place (Corel Centre), which has a hockey capacity of about 19,000, and the setup for the concert likely had a capacity of about 12,000. It was maybe 80% full.

Rock is dead. KOL are certainly the biggest rock band on the planet today whose members are under the age of 40, and they can't even sell out a tour. Meanwhile, a sugar-popper-turned-slut Rihanna sells out all over the place and sells 20 million records before she turns 25.

Yes, as we all know, the Rolling Stones - or any hard rock band - were never writing songs, or playing, for teenage girls.

I actually just recently watched the complete run (hooray for youtube!

I would do an analysis on the number of times men called women "whores" or "sluts" in this thread but then my head would explode. BBTF is supposed to be my happy place.

In any case, if you aren't aware there is a parody porn with "Rihanna" as well as imitators of Katie Perry, Ke$ha, and Lady Gaga. The strongest likeness is probably the dollar sign imitator; Ms. Perry's cleavage misses the mark by at least two bra sizes.

A friend of mine (girl) and I have similar taste in shows and one of the ones we used to watch (though neither of us have for a couple seasons now) is the Office. Anyway, one day she said she had found a really great porn parody of the Office. So we watched it one day...she seemed to get a real kick out of it, but I have to say...it was a little awkward.

EDIT: A porn parody of Newsradio would be interesting. I'm sure you could even get Dave Foley to reprise Dave Nelson for it, he needs the money. Andy Dick would probably do it for free.

she's a pop singer who's target audience is teen and pre-teen girls.

How do you decide her target audience? If she makes songs about killing people and getting shitfaced, perhaps that's not her target audience.

A friend of mine (girl) and I have similar taste in shows and one of the ones we used to watch (though neither of us have for a couple seasons now) is the Office. Anyway, one day she said she had found a really great porn parody of the Office. So we watched it one day...she seemed to get a real kick out of it, but I have to say...it was a little awkward.

She wanted to watch porn with you?

Dude, she wants to jump you.

And I'm sure the Stones were playing for teenage girls, who were 17+. I don;t think the Stones ever thought of themselves as roles models either.

I have played in a band for about 10 years, and if the median age of fans at my infrequent gigs was 14, I would quit. I honestly don't how NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, etc. get out of bed in the morning, but then again money isn't remotely the most important thing in my life.

I was in my 20s when NewsRadio began and completely understand about having a crush on Maura Tierney.


I wouldn't date her, but I'd keep her chained up in my basement for a few weeks.

Yes, as we all know, the Rolling Stones - or any hard rock band - were never writing songs, or playing, for teenage girls.

What a joke.


You mean the band that titled one of their albums "Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!" might not have been performing exclusively for 30-something men?

Well, I never!

Faye Dunaway is a good choice, but from that era I prefer Charlotte Rampling and Jane Birkin.


This is a man with taste!

Has a score of 7.1 on IMDB, on the strength of one review. I would quote from that review, but the first line warned me that it *may contain spoilers*, so I backed off.

Why doesn't Carole Lombard get more love?

Maria Tura, best female role ever.

I hate it when I'm all geared up to watch porn but I get spoiled on what the order of positions will be. Spoiler alerts are very big in porn.

Also - Lisa/Maura... yes please. She was my archetypal smart, funny, beautiful 20-something. If only she had been a space prostitute, she and Dave would probably still be together.

Jesus that is one in-depth review of a porn film. Though I can't say as I've ever read one before now so maybe that is par for the course. I found the plot a little hard to follow at times, and they seemed to hurriedly introduce characters...they had one black guy and I wasn't sure if he was supposed to be Darryl or Stanley. Took me out of the picture.

Is that the one where the boss is a woman? Or are there more than one of them?

The porn, or The Office? In the non-porn version (both UK and US), the boss is a man.

I can't speak to the porn, but I would hate to think that Dirt and Skank, the Raunch Brothers, would screw up that detail. Accuracy in porn is important, otherwise it takes you out of the picture (as the anonymous reviewer suggested).

Related: has anybody noticed that Derek Jeter's swoon corresponded almost perfectly to his oh-so-serious relationship with Minka Kelly, and his return to form coincides with their breakup?

I saw a porn version where the boss was a woman. It made it less a parody and more a random porn with an office setting.

I met a guy that reviewed movies - both porn and non-porn - for a living. He had a blog or website. I don't know how much money he made, but he was noticed enough that studios sent him free copies of everything. I found it interesting that any day might bring both Un-Natural Sex 14 and The Hours in the mail.

The Hours was easily the worst porn I ever saw.

This is surprising. Because I found Nicole Kidman's masturbation technique fascinating in "Margot at the Wedding".

On a more serious note, I've never really been a fan of Kidman's but I saw "Margot at the Wedding" and "Rabbit Hole" recently and she really won me over. Maybe she's just found a niche for me with troubled characters who are barely clinging to their sanity.

I especially like this meltdown where she takes a relatively benign question about her upcoming book from a friend as some sort of cue to painfully self-destruct.
