Britney Spears’s ‘Criminal’ Music Video Causes Controversy In The UK

Early this week we got to see photos from the UK set of Britney Spears‘s new music video for her new single Criminal.

Today we learn that some folks in the town of Stoke Newington are upset that Britney appears to be “promoting gun violence” in an area affected by the recent London riots. HMMM. More »

A NASA Satellite Is Expected To Crash To Earth Today

Okay … I don’t want to panic anyone but … the now defunct, 12,500-pound NASA Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) is expected to crash to Earth sometime today … this afternoon, in fact … and scientists are ALMOST POSITIVE that it will NOT crash in a populated area. For a couple of days now, I’ve been hearing about this satellite that is expected to fall back to Earth this weekend and for the most part, reports have maintained that the satellite is not expected to hit a populated area. But early this morning, on the local LA news, a scientist in El Segundo, CA made the claim that it is possible that pieces of the satellite might hit populated areas. HMMMM. Keep your heads up, y’all … cuz as Chicken Little warned us, the sky is falling. More »

Watch: Levi Johnston Claims Sarah Palin Had A ‘Cougar Crush’ On Him

Back in May we got our first look at the cover art for Levi Johnston‘s new book Deer In Headlights and today we get to hear from Levi himself as he promotes the book in a new interview with E! News. As you can hear for yourselves below, Levi explains to E! that Sarah Palin, the failed Vice Presidential candidate who also happens to be the grandmother of his child, used to have a “cougar crush” on him. Apparently, Johnston‘s friends would notice that Palin used to “flirt” with him. Ew. I mean … if you’re going to promote a book full of supposedly trashy Palin family details, what better way to do so than by claiming that your girlfriend’s mom used to hit on you. Wanna hear more? Click below — be warned, the video autoplays. More »

Shel Silverstein Releases A Posthumous New Book Titled ‘Every Thing On It’

Great, great news to pass along for those of you fans of children’s author Shel Silverstein (Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, etc.) because a new book of his brilliant poetry has been released this week. Silverstein‘s family sorted thru a mountain of his unpublished work and culled together 145 previously unreleased poems that were, for various reasons, left off of his previous books. For Silvertein fans like me, this is a TREASURE TROVE of new poems to read. The world lost a great artist when Silverstien passed away in 1999 … but this new book of poetry promises to remind us all just how lucky we were to have him in the world. Click below to check out the book cover for Every Thing On It and read one of the “new” poems pulblished in this new book. More »
