Incites a shizzstorm of controversy on Twitter
Oh man. Remember last month when that small firestorm of controversy erupted when the patriarch of the TV show Duck Dynasty made those offensive comments about gay and Black people? Well, last night One Direction member Liam Payne got himself embroiled in that controversy by tweeting publicly on his official Twitter profile his support for the cast of Duck Dynasty and the “family values [they] still all behold“. As soon as Liam posted the tweet, angry and upset fans fired back messages of confusion, anger and abhorrence that Liam would not only align himself with that kind of thinking but would do so in a very public way. Payne, in turn, seemed shocked that anyone would care … and then he went on the offensive attacking anyone who attacked him for his public stance. Oy. The kid really stepped in it this time and the longer he remains unrepentant, the longer this new bit of controversy will continue. Click below to read Liam‘s original tweet and see how he handled the situation as the controversy unfolded. More »
Then Apologizes for It
Shia LaBeouf appears to be on a campaign to be the douchiest guy on the planet these days judging by the way he is acting out in every way possible. In recent weeks, Shia has been accused of getting caught in the act of plagiarism and not really caring about it … to the point where he as threatened to quit show business (sound familiar?). After a week or so of staying out of trouble, Shia showed up in a London pub causing a bit of a ruckus by headbutting a fellow bar patron with his own head. Almost immediately after, Shia drunkenly apologized for his actions … and naturally, all of it was caught on camera. Watch below, won’t you? More »

Texas Football For Kids Is ABSOLUTE INSANITY!!!
Madness. Absolute madness. The other night a certain somebody pulled me into the living room and said, “You have to watch this show.” And since that moment, I haven’t been the same. Friday Night Tykes got so much hate on Twitter, it’s not even funny. People are legit calling out “child abuse” and making all kinds of accusations against the coaches on this series, which follows competitive youth football teams in Texas. When I say “competitive” I mean, I watched a coach tell one of the kids (who was maybe 8 or 9) to go ahead and “blow chunks” (AKA vomit, because he was running in 99-degree weather) and get his ass back on the field. True. Friggen. Story. Peep the video above and click inside for a few more of my thoughts on this show. And be warned– if you haven’t seen it, you’re not ready!

She Has Been Placed In A Medically-Induced Coma
Really sad news to pass along today. Just the other day we saw cast members from the hit Netflix series Orange Is The New Black in a new spread for Elle Magazine, and I got really excited for the new season, which is premiering sometime this year. Many of those cast members woke up to some awful news, as Michelle Hurst (the actress who plays Miss Claudette, an older inmate) has been in a car crash and suffered life-threatening injuries.

Apparently, the whole incident was recorded "on tape"
You know, it doesn’t really take much to get Kanye West fighting mad … just ask any of the paparazzi photogs who dare to take his photo or, you know, deign to speak to him … so it should come as no surprise whatsoever that we learn that earlier today, Kanye allegedly beat the snot out of an 18-year old guy in a chiropractor’s office after he verbally assaulted his babymama with a horrible racial slur. According to TMZ, the 18-year old in question first tried to be a good guy and “help” said babymama fend off a crowd of paparazzi photogs by hurling racist and homophobic slurs at them. When she tried to chide the young man on his language, he hurled nasty verbal assaults on her. She got upset, called Kanye and the rest is history. Read on for all the known deets. More »

She basically called Disney a "gender bigot"ed anti-Semite
Okay, so, Meryl Streep was asked to introduce and say a few nice things about Emma Thompson at the National Board of Review Dinner in NYC, NY this week for her portrayal of P.L. Travers in the film Saving Mr. Banks. Over the course of her tribute to Thompson, Streep said some really unflattering things about Walt Disney, I think in an effort to celebrate Emma‘s excellent portrayal of Travers who stood up to Disney for 20 years despite being a “lowly woman”. Meryl really dragged Walt like crazy. She accused him of hating women and of being an anti-Semite. Yikes. Click below to learn more about Meryl‘s tribute to Emma Thompson and attack on Walt Disney.

Lindsay Lohan made her way to Shanghai, China recently to attend a fashion awards show where she was honored and took with her a laptop computer that contained various nekkid photos presumably of herself but likely of other folks as well. The problem for Lindsay is that she returned home from her trip sans computer because, she says, it was stolen at the airport. L. Lo is now desperate to get the computer back because of the nekkid pics contained on the computer … which is understandable because if the person in possession of her computer has access to the nudie pics on the laptop, then they could sell or just upload the photos online for anyone to see. Yikes! More »

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
I don’t know if y’all have made New Year’s resolutions this year, but I am honestly not even doing it to myself. I love this time of year, and New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day are my favorite holidays, but I really want to try a different approach to how I celebrate this year; something a little different from a traditional list of things to do. Which is why I love this story! Instead of a resolution or a to-do/to-accomplish list, this woman creates a new challenge every year that she attempts to complete. And in 2013 she lived on nothing but Starbucks food and drink. Every day. For the entire year. Every. DAY. LMAO! But she has a great story. Click inside for more!
She Says No, Fans Say "Definitely"
Yesterday afternoon, Kanye West‘s babymama posted a photo on her official Instagram profile of their daughter North West that was captioned Smile that, truth be told, is just the cutest picture of little Nori ever. BUT, almost immediately, followers of Nori‘s mom on social media started to comment aloud that it appeared to them that the baby’s eyebrows/unibrow had been waxed to perfection. I have to admit that the thought never occurred to me that a mother would be dumb enough to inflict eyebrow waxing on a baby but then again … I tend to give folks the benefit of the doubt more often than not. HMMM. Click below to see the full-size photo of North West in question and see what you think about the possibility that the little girl’s eyebrows had been waxed for the photo. Ugh. More »

All Mimi wants for Xmas is a RE-DO
My homie Matt posted this video on Oh No They Didn’t! but it’s too good not to share with all y’all, as well. We all know that Mariah Carey has a stunningly powerful voice but even the best singers can have a bad night. Oof. At the taping of the National Christmas Tree Lighting in Washington DC last week, Mimi had a RRRRROUGH time signing her holiday classic All I Want for Christmas Is You. As you can painfully hear in the video embedded above, MC had a hard time hitting some of her more challenging notes thruout the song. At about the 3:24 mark of the video, you can tell that Mariah was mortified when her voice cracked. After she was finished, she even says aloud that she wishes she could get a “re-do” and sing the song all over again … but ultimately she realizes, “it is what it is”. Mimi may be fabulous most of the time but as you can clearly see, she’s only human. Check out the video and see what you think of Mimi‘s imperfect performance.
