This is a bona fide TRAVESTY
Ugh. For years now, uninspired producers have been mining properties from the past in order to reboot them for a new generation to capitalize from. Books, TV shows and movies from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s have been retooled and revamped in new modern incarnations, usually in pretty bad ways. Today we learn that the ’80s toy/cartoon Rainbow Brite has been reimagined as a new animated TV series which looks so painfully bad that I cringe even thinking about the horror that YOU will feel when you watch the trailer above. Trust me, I feel your pain … I’ve already watched it and I hate my eyes for what they have seen. This new version of Rainbow Brite is such shit that, except for the fact that actress Molly Ringwald voices the villain, I can’t even think of one positive thing to say about it. But, in order to see that I am not exaggerating, you have to watch the trailer above and see what they have done to Rainbow Brite … then you can cleanse your palette below by watching a FULL episode of the original ’80s cartoon version of Rainbow Brite.

Party til you puke!
After he partied very hearty with Lily Allen at a nightclub here in LA a few nights ago, Harry Styles of One Direction was spotted on the side of the 101 freeway here in SoCal puking his guts out. It would appear that Harry went real hard the night before and ended paying for it in spades the day after. Now, I know we’ve all been there after night of drinking but I don’t think I’ve ever had to pull over on the side of a freeway to puke out my innards. Ick! More »

Sorry Lambs, this video is REALLY tough to watch :(
Back in August we learned that Mariah Carey, amidst major personal problems, would be touring in Asia in support of her newest album Me. I Am Mariah … The Elusive Chanteuse and in September, we saw photos from her tour rehearsals for The Elusive Chanteuse Show. Over the weekend, Mimi kicked off her tour in Tokyo, Japan and as the video above painfully shows, she suffered a lot of vocal problems throughout her entire performance Saturday night. The video is tough to watch, I have to admit, but if you’re curious, click the embed above to hear Mimi struggle to hit her trademark high notes and have difficultly staying on key … among other problems. Ugh. I love Mariah so much … this is just really hard to watch. I sincerely hope these problems were just a few errant mistakes and not a sign that her tour ahead will be a bona fide disaster. OOF!
In English, Spanish and French
Um. So. Ricky Martin has just released a new single titled Adiós that has been recorded in English, Spanish and English & French and as you can hear for yourself, the song is pretty horrendous in any language. Of the 3 versions, I guess the song sounds best in Spanish … but that is not saying much. I listened to the song a few times and, yeah, I just do not love it at all. Click the embed above to hear Adiós in English and see what you think. Am I being too harsh? You can click below to hear the song in Spanish and French to compare … or further torture yourself. Eek.

'She’s rude to her fans. She was so obsessed with her hair...'
Okay, what is the deal with Ariana Grande? I’ve been hearing all of this buzz about her being all diva, all of the time, and I’m starting to wonder if there’s some truth to this stuff. Now, if this story is a true, Grande has to be on some next level stuff—how bad would you have to be for a life coach to just say, “Nope, I can’t even deal“? LMAO. Click inside for more!

"At my concerts, I make sure everybody has as good a time as possible."
So … yesterday we got to see video of Kanye West inadvertently yelling at a couple of wheelchair-bound concert goers in Sydney, Australia and today we get to hear Kanye‘s response to the release and circulation of that video. In case you are unaware, Kanye stopped his concert in Sydney and demanded that every single person in the audience stand up on their feet. He refused to resume the concert until EVERY SINGLE PERSON was standing up. He saw two people sitting down and he kept berating them from the stage until they stood up. He even sent his security detail to go find out why they were still seated after he commanded them to stand and discovered that the people sitting down were doing so because they were in wheelchairs. West performed a show in Brisbane, Aus last night and commented from the stage about the incident … and as you can imagine, he did so in spectacular Kanye West fashion. More »

"STAND UP! STAND UP! STAND UP!"
A few days ago, a story about Kanye West demanding that a pair of wheelchair-bound concert goers stand up during one of his concerts in Sydney, Australia started to make the rounds and, as you can see above, video footage of the incident has finally come to light. As you may have heard, Kanye stopped his concert that night and demanded that every single person in the audience stand up on their feet. He noticed that two people remained seated and he focused on them, demanding that they stand up or he would not continue the concert. It eventually was revealed that the concert goers he was yelling at where confined to their wheelchairs, showing Kanye to be an insensitive ass. The video is really awkward to watch but it does give you a very good understanding for the kind of person Kanye West truly is. Ugh.
In case you missed the original story, you can read about it below. More »

"We were shocked because it looked so serious.”
The good news is that rapper Kanye West was able to perform his concert in Melbourne, Australia on Wednesday night … the troubling news is that he had to be hospitalized just hours before due to a seeming major health scare earlier that day. According to an eyewitness source, Kanye was rushed to Epworth Hospital in Richmond (Melbourne) with a sheet covering half of his face. Altho no one will confirm the scare officially, this eyewitness explains what she saw that day. According to her, the fear was that Kanye had either suffered a seizure or was about to suffer a seizure in the hospital. Yikes. Thankfully, everything turned out well since Kanye was released and was able to perform later that night but still … it sounds like he endured a harrowing afternoon in the hospital this week. More »

A whole universe of WTF
*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.
