F— Ray Rice: Here’s Video Footage Of Him Knocking Out His Then-Fiancée, And Dragging And Kicking Her Unconscious Body

A whole universe of WTF
This is how you "earn" a 2-game suspension

*Deep breath* Okay. I almost want to take back every single thing I wrote in that piece that was sort of in defense of Stephen A. Smith‘s comments about domestic violence. I almost want to say—nevermind, I was kidding. Or, more to the point, I was wrong. But it’s hard to admit when you’re wrong, so I’ll just say that seeing this footage makes me want to have an entirely different conversation. People. WHAT are we doing? Why am I looking at a video of a man knocking out his wife and dragging (and kicking—because at the 0:57 mark, he actually KICKS HER UNCONSCIOUS BODY) his wife out of an elevator. Before we even get to the incredible, effed up-ness of it all, I also have to say that there’s a part of me that doesn’t want to post this. If it was me, and I was in an abusive relationship, I would not want video evidence of my abuse on the internet. People are making GIFs in an attempt to show the severity of the attack, but I really feel for Janay Palmer. She’s married to him now, and I feel like I just don’t know what to say… other than that, we all need to do better as parents? Like, somewhere, somebody’s parents f—ed up, and now we have this video as a result. I also want to stress that what we are looking at may feel shocking, but IT IS NOT UNCOMMON. It is, instead, quite common. So, like I said, we need to do better. Click inside for more.

Joan Rivers Is Reportedly On Life Support

But her family is still very hopeful

Very sad news to pass along today … it is being reported that Joan Rivers is now on life support with only machines keeping her alive. As you may recall, Joan suffered cardiac arrest a few days ago when she stopped breathing during a throat procedure she was undergoing in a medical clinic. Altho her condition was upgraded from critical to stable, it would appear that the medically induced coma is largely responsible for the stability. We are learning today that Joan is currently on life support, which sounds dire but her family is still hopeful that she will recover. More »

Whoops! Here Is Video Of Iggy Azalea Falling Off Stage During A MTV VMAs Pre-Show

#PoorIggy
She's so clumsy

So, last night Iggy Azalea performed a short mini-concert at The Avalon here in LA as a pre-show warm up for the MTV Video Music Awards and for the most part, the show went off without a hitch … except for the part where Iggy fall her ass off the stage during her live performance of Fancy (with Charli XCX). As you can see above, Iggy walks backwards during her performance until she walked right off the stage. As soon as word spread on social media that she fell off stage, the hashtag #PoorIggy started to make the rounds. Bless. Thankfully, she wasn’t hurt and she bounced back and kept on performing like a pro. Check out the video above and see how a real boss lady handles a little stage mishap like this.

Let’s All Watch Katy Perry Get Her Nose Pierced!

C'mon, it'll be fun.

Ah, this brings back memories. While I haven’t been bold enough to get piercings anywhere other than my ears, I once watched my Aunt Grace pierce my bff Karen‘s nose and it was amazing, LOL. The blood, the tears, the ice cubes, the fear—it was all so palpable in that bedroom of teenage dreams. Katy Perry is not so cool as to have my aunt pierce her nose, but she did share the moment on Instagram, for all of our viewing pleasure. Click inside for more!
