"I am here to fight for creativity."
Oh man … lots of things happened at the Grammy Awards last night … good things, bad things, boring things, fug things … you know … things. And then there was Kanye West. Kanye did his thing on the red carpet, Kanye did his thing on the performance stage … but it was what he almost did at the end of the Grammy Awards show and definitely did after the show that is getting most of the attention. You may recall that Kanye famously ran up on stage and interrupted Taylor Swift‘s acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards back in 2009 when Taylor won but Kanye snatched her microphone to exclaim that Beyoncé should’ve won the award that Taylor had just won. Last night, he damn near did it again. When Beck inexplicably won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year last night, Kanye did storm the stage … but managed to refrain from snatching the microphone to voice his displeasure. He did go on to happily have his say to the E! News cameras after the show to tell the world that Beck didn’t deserve to win that Grammy award … because, Kanye says, the Album of the Year award should’ve gone to Beyoncé. There is some discussion that Kanye may have been joking but nah, he wasn’t joking. Click below to watch Kanye‘s post-Grammy Awards rant and see if you think he was being serious or not. More »
1 person dead, 7 people injured, Bruce unharmed
Reality TV star Bruce Jenner was involved in a fatal car accident yesterday while driving on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, CA. The investigation into the accident is far from complete but initial reports suggest that Jenner was being chased by paparazzi photographers following him closely (likely inspired by news that he is about to reveal details about his reported transition) and he slammed into a car that was coming to a stop at a red light. The car he hit was pushed into oncoming traffic that the driver of that car was killed. Police have initially determined that Jenner was not speeding but they issued a warrant for his cell phone to determine if he was using his phone at the time of the accident. The good news for Bruce is that he was not severely injured in the accident and he voluntarily submitted to a blood alcohol test to prove that he was not impaired while driving. Very sadly, tho, this tragic accident resulted in the death of an innocent person. More »

On Tuesday we saw the BRILLIANT recreation that Jimmy Fallon did of the open credits of the hit ’90s series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air which kicked off The Tonight Show‘s week here in LA. Last night, OMG, Fallon managed to outdo even himself with, what can only be described as, THE greatest feat in the history of television. Jimmy managed to pull of a near perfect reunion of the Saved By the Bell cast on The Tonight Show last night … which you can watch in full above. I say near perfect because neither Dustin Diamond (aka Screech) nor Lark Voorhies (aka Lisa Turtle) were in attendance for the reunion (probably because Diamond is still dealing with the legal ramifications of being arrested recently for stabbing a guy in a bar fight and Voorhies is reportedly dealing with some sort of mental problem these days). But Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris), Tiffani Amber Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski), Elizabeth Berkley (Jessie Spano), Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater) and Dennis Hastings (an extremely overweight Mr. Belding) all participated in this masterfully written, superbly acted, PERFECTLY WIGGED SBtB reunion skit last night. You simply have to watch this … and love it to absolute death.
As a bonus, Mario Lopez shared a couple of behind the scenes photos from The Tonight Show taping last night that he posted on his official Instagram profile just before the skit aired here on the West Coast, click below to see those fun photos. More »
This is our country, these are our schools
Are any of you following the Humans of New York series? It’s incredible, and I’m going to go back and read some more entries after I write this, because I just need to keep hope alive. What you are about to see is a video of a police officer—wait, let’s just pause for a minute there. We have police officers in schools. Still not over that fact. And, come to think of it, I went to a school with security guards on the main floor (a performing arts school, believe it or not), so I guess I shouldn’t be that flabbergasted. So, yes, police in middle schools—great job, America. And this police officer took it upon herself to beat a 13 year-old girl with her baton, because the girl pushed her in the hallway. The girl had to be taken to the ER, where she received 10 stitches for the gash in her head. Would you believe me if I told you that THE GIRL (along with her two family members who tried to help her) WAS CHARGED WITH ASSAULTING A POLICE OFFICER? Click inside for more.
He actually ran over 2 men but only killed 1
Hip Hop mogul Marion Suge Knight was arrested a short time ago after he turned himself in to police on murder charges after he fatally struck two men with his car yesterday, killing one. The video clip above features Suge arriving at the police station earlier this morning to be arrested, booked and charged for his latest crime … bail has been set at $2 million dollars. The hit and run incident was no accident, authorities say, and Knight has been charged with murder because altho he didn’t intend to kill the man he ran over, he DID try to run over another man he intended to injure and that alone is enough to charge him with murder. Check out the video above of Suge Knight calmly turning himself in to police and then click below for more details about what apparently went down yesterday. More »
Well, this is awkward...
Okay, here is one beef I have with celebrities. They loooove to discredit the blogs and rumor mills whenever there’s some crazy story about them making headlines. They love to roll their eyes over how ridiculous these rumors are but… don’t these rumors often turn out to be true? I mean, damn! I didn’t want to believe that Nick Cannon and Amber Rose were a thing, but this latest Instagram post has me thinking otherwise. Like, incredibly otherwise. And I know Amber loves getting a rise out of people on her account, but this is some other ish. Click inside for more!

Dicks on Parade
Rick Owens debuted his Spring/Summer 2015 menswear collection at Paris Fashion Week yesterday in front of the world’s cameras and managed to garner a lot of attention NOT for the clothing designs he showed off but for the fully exposed flaccid dicks he sent down the runway. As you can see in the gallery presented here, a few of the models who walked the runway yesterday wore garments that were designed to show off their flappy dicks (which didn’t do the models any favors considering how chilly it probably was in the showroom). It would appear that Dick Owens is trying to make exposed penises the new fashion trend for men in 2015. Click trough the gallery if you dare to see, first, a few promo images of Owens‘s new S/S 2015 menswear collection (sans dicks) and then see a few photos of the exposed penises that strutted their way down the runway yesterday. What say you, fashionistas? Are dicks the new black this season?

Also, we have way too many details about this prenup
Sometimes, these kinds of stories can be so weird. I’m reading this article on TMZ like, “Dude! We know way too much here!” It is so bizarre to feel like I know exactly how much Nick Cannon paid for Mariah Carey‘s engagement ring, and exactly how big of a loan he had to take it. It’s crazy. Now that Cannon has officially filed for divorce, and the DUNZO train has pulled off, full steam ahead, I think we’re going to be hearing more very specific details like this. Click inside to find out how Carey could end up paying her ex $500,000.

Oh yes, that is DEFINITELY (probably) a Baby Bump!!!!
I’m over here trying to catch up on the Golden Globe Awards and BOOOOOM. Everything has been shut down, whilst we attempt to confirm whether or not THIS is the announcement we’ve all been waiting for since the dawn of Blue Ivy Carter (who just turned three!). You guys. I’m an EXPERT on baby bumps photos, and it would appear that this is a baby bump photo—one that’s getting more likes and tags than probably any other photo this year. Click inside for more!!!
Totally terrifying... and pretty cool.
I just read a really cool essay on The New York Times, and I have to share with all of you. We don’t get into too much on the blog (unless our minds are boggled by a particular celebrity relationship), but sometimes the question of love comes up and it’s always interesting to hear what you all think. Mandy Len Catron’s essay on modern love is titled, “To Fall in Love With Anyone, Do This,” and damn, I just could not resist reading it. While I do consider myself to be romantic, I also believe we choose who we love and I guess I also think that if you put just about any two people together, under the right (or wrong) circumstances, feelings could develop. Apparently, there’s been a whole psychological study devoted to this very idea, and some interesting things have happened. Click inside for more!
