That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
I’m not gonna lie… this video made me feel pretty damn good. If you’ve ever pushed a human being out of your um body, and then tried to explain to another person (i.e. a man) what that felt like– you know, having a full-blow human being push his/her way into the world, past your organs, and fallopian tubes, and all that good stuff– you’ve probably felt like they just didn’t get it, ultimately. Because there’s really no way to get it, unless you experience it. But science has ways of expressing what some of us can’t, and two men involved with the Kensington Church (a non-denominational organization) recently decided to celebrate Mother’s Day by going through electronically stimulated labor pains as their wives looked on. LMAO, yes. It is awesome (so is this video of a couple of Dutch guys doing it). And even though it compares in no way to the real deal, you can tell their wives really, really had a blast watching this go down. Women, mothers, everyone– enjoy!

Remember over the weekend when we saw (and heard) video footage of Kanye West walking into a metal sign in Beverly Hills, which resulted in an explosion of anger at the paparazzi who dared to photograph the incident? Well, Kanye walked away from that incident will a little reminder of his mishap in for form of a pretty significant dent in his forehead. Ouch! Judging by the size of Kanye‘s new head wound, it’s clear that he bashed his head pretty hard into that sign. It turns out that Kanye‘s head isn’t the only thing that got bashed recently. His $750,000 Lamborghini Aventador got banged up pretty badly this week … which proves that the rich and famous DON’T have all the luck. More »

"DON'T TAKE NO PHOTOS!!!!!!"
So … Kanye West and his baby-mama-to-be were out and about in Beverly Hills this week trying to make their way into a restaurant when they were met by the paparazzi. Kanye accidentally walked into a large metal sign and banged his head pretty badly … as a result, and probably due to horrible embarrassment, Kanye then proceeded to FLIP OUT on the paps who were taking photos of his mishap. Naturally, his emotive explosion was caught on video (tho, the actual moment he bashed his head was not captured on video) which you can watch in the embed above. After the incident, Kanye and his chick went inside the restaurant to cool off … but the attempt was unsuccessful. Click below to watch another video of Kanye coming out of the restaurant to FLIP OUT on a different photog at the scene. BE WARNED: the video below contains strong, NSFW language. More »

Actress Kristen Stewart has been pretty low-key lately. While she has hit up a red carpet event here or there, she’s mostly been spotted boo’d up with Robert Pattinson. We last saw her at the 2013 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, and just before that she was spotted hanging out with Rob at a karaoke bar in LA. The two are expected to show up together for NYC’s upcoming Met Ball, but first K-Stew might have some minor insurance-related issues to take care of. Yesterday she was unfortunately involved in a minor fender bender in LA. Click inside to learn more.

Reports of his near death have been GREATLY exaggerated
Late Friday afternoon, TMZ reported that rapper Lil’ Wayne was knocking on death’s door, that his mother was flying to be by his side so that she could make medical decisions for him and that he was given his last rites. Today they are reporting that Lil’ Wayne was released from the hospital last night with a clean bill of health. Yeah. I’m going to take a wild stab in the dark and say that TMZ was operating and disseminating really bad information last week. Lil’ Wayne not only lives but he’s well enough to continue his recuperation at home. More »
Sigh. It would seem that Morrissey‘s 2013 US Tour is just not meant to be. After severe illness caused Morrissey to postpone months of shows at the start of the year (including a show I was supposed to see back home in Michigan), he triumphantly performed a string of shows here in SoCal in front of sold out venues of fans (I was lucky enough to attend 3 of those shows — in San Diego, in LA and at Hollywood High School). Unfortunately, Morrissey‘s return to the concert stage was short-lived because earlier this week he had to cancel his performance in San Francisco due to a bout of double pneumonia. Last night, Morrissey released a statement that is sure to break hearts all across the country … due to his continued illness, he has been forced to cancel completely the rest of his US Tour :( More »

Conflicting Reports are Conflicting
TMZ set off a firestorm of activity on Twitter a few hours ago when they reported that rapper Lil’ Wayne (née Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr.) was so near death that last rites were administered as his family awaited his death. It’s unclear what Wayne‘s status is now since TMZ has softened on their reporting of events and in light of Wayne‘s camp categorically denying that Weezy is near death. Click below to read what TMZ had to say about Lil’ Wayne‘s apparent failing health and then read what was posted on Wayne‘s official Twitter profile in response. One thing is certain, Lil’ Wayne is currently hospitalized in critical condition … we don’t know for sure just how critical he is. More »
