Pop Rocks: Courtney Stodden Turns 18, Perverts Exhale Noisily
Good heavens, night is falling and the text entry window for my due-at-8 a.m. pop culture blog entry remains alarmingly free of text. To TMZ!
Just turned 18? Okay...
Here's a shocker...Courtney Stodden says she definitely has NOT ruled out any of the porn offers that have rolled in since she turned 18 this morning.
Stodden just called in to "TMZ Live"...and told us she's been "flooded" with XXX offers from the moment she became "legal"...and the thought of her getting intimate with another man is freaking out her 52-year-old hubby.
Let that one roll around for a moment: She's worried about "freaking out" her 52-year-old husband, to whom she's been married since she was 16.
Seeing as how I'm forced to comb through the entertainment headlines regularly, it was hard to avoid the pair (believe me, I tried). The, uh, precocious young lady certainly seemed to enjoy the attention that came from being scantily clad jailbait. It's just funny -- in a depressing, inevitable downfall of mankind kind of way -- to see the commotion made about the one young celebrity turning 18 who might actually start making "adult" entertainment.
And that's it, isn't it? Finally, after decades of a certain type of person anticipating such a thing, there's someone of legal age who might actually make that leap (or plummet, depending on your preferred metaphor) to pornography.
I'm not making this up. And while I haven't kept up to date on the technology, I know there were several online "countdowns" set up to give us a to-the-second reckoning of how long it was going to be until certain child stars turned 18. The Olsen Twins had one (they turned 18 in 2004, and that Web page looks it), Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame had a fake one (though Daniel Radcliffe's looks real). I suspect there are/were ones out there for Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and every other Disney Channel actress.
