Jimmy Kimmel Takes A Super Selfie With The Entire Clinton Family

"No Brad Cooper but ..."

Inspired by that super celebrity selfie that Ellen DeGeneres took with all those celebs during the television broadcast of the Academy Awards last month, Jimmy Kimmel has shared a super selfie of his own on his official Instagram profile. Kimmel played moderator at an event attended by President Bill Clinton, former First Lady/Senator/Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and their daughter Chelsea Clinton which took place at the Clinton Global Initiative University in Tempe, AZ last night. Kimmel hammered away at Hilary asking her about her possible run for the US presidency in 2016 … which she masterfully managed to sidestep. And, because he had the entire First Family with him, Jimmy though it would be cool to snap a selfie photo with the Clintons … which you can see in full below. More »

President Obama Asks YOU Not To Spoil ‘House Of Cards’ Season 2

"Please"

The entire second season of House of Cards is finally available on Netflix today and, as a result, people will be watching the new episodes of the series at their own speed … meaning, some folks will have the time to watch most (if not all) of the second season before others will even get the chance to watch episode 1. President Barack Obama, himself a big fan of House of Cards, posted a tweet reminding us all that A.) the entirety of House of Cards season 2 comes out today and B.) it would be SO NOT COOL if anyone to post spoilers online about the show.

Watch: Clay Aiken Is Running For Congress

The former 'American Idol' wants your VOTE again
Clay for Congress

For a few weeks now, there have been rumors that American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken was considering a run for the US Congress in his home state of North Carolina and today … he made those rumors official. Aiken has formally thrown his hat in the ring in a bid for the congressional seat in North Carolina’s 2nd District. To make his announcement, Clay released a 4+ minute video, embedded above, which explains his desire for political office. Honestly, the video is a bit sparse, IMHO, but I think that is the thing he is going for … just a regular guy wanting to serve the people of his district in Congress. Watch the video above and see what you think of Clay Aiken as a politician. He has a long way to go to win a seat in Congress. First he must go thru a primary against fellow Democrats then he has to take on the incumbent Republican Renee Ellmers. Hopefully, Aiken‘s rise to political power will be more successful than his bid to become an American Idol. Hmm. Would YOU vote for Clay Aiken for Congress?

George Zimmerman Agrees To Fight In A Celebrity Boxing Match, Game Volunteers To Beat Him Down

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day

The year’s just getting started and we’ve already got a That-Ish-Cray story that’ll definitely go down infamy. So, many of you may not know this, but I am a little bit obsessed with Game. I don’t talk about him too often on the blog, but OMG I used to have that Old English track on repeat! I also got into his reality show for a while (Marrying The Game), which is right around the time I started crushin’ on him more than is probably appropriate. Game was one of many celebrities to speak out against the Zimmerman acquittal, which is probably why he’s volunteered to beat the shizz out of Trayvon Martin‘s murderer. Folks, I want to laugh, but I can’t even deal… Click inside for more.

A Petition To Have Justin Bieber Deported Will Be Addressed By The White House

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford comes to Bieber's Defense

Last night Justin Bieber was arrested and booked for the second time in under a week when he turned himself in to Toronto police on charges that he physically assaulted a limo driver last month (AFTER he was arrested last week in Miami Beach, FL for criminal driving charges). Today we learn that the White House will have to formally consider and answer a petition that has been signed by over 100,000 people demanding that Bieber be deported from the United States. Whenever a petition reaches a certain threshold of signatures, it must formally consider and answer publicly … so, anytime now, the White House will be forced to weigh in publicly on calls for Bieber‘s deportation. It’s not all bad news for JB tho, troubled trainwreck Toronto mayor Rob Ford has publicly offered his support for The Biebs … so there’s that. OY! More »

So Here’s What That ‘Duck Dynasty’ Guy Said About Gay People And Black People

The World According To Phil Robertson (And, Sadly, Many Others)

I was totally trying to ignore this story and pretend that it didn’t exist, but one of my Facebook friends had a quote from Phil Robertson‘s controversial GQ interview as her status and I got duped into reading it. So, Phil Robertson of the popular A&E show Duck Dynasty has been suspended indefinitely from the series, following homophobic comments he made in the GQ piece. What’s interesting is that very few people (aside from my Facebook friends) are addressing the ridiculous and offensive things he said about black people, so I’m here to address both.
