Thus far there have been GADS of really great Ice Bucket Challenge videos making the rounds (the one we saw yesterday of Henry Cavill dressed in costume as Superman was a pretty damn good one, I think) and today … we get to see two more really great ALS Ice Bucket Challenge videos. First up, you can click above to watch Homer Simpson accept The Ice Bucket Challenge in the most Simpsons way possible. It’s fun, believe me. Next, click below to watch the cutest little British girl accept the Ice Bucket Challenge which has the BEST ending of any challenge video that I’ve seen yet. Brilliant. Please enjoy both videos and MAKE A DONATION to the ALS Association!! More »
Ugh. Spanish clothier Zara really stepped into a pile of mess last week when they unveiled a t-shirt for sale that read White is the new Black. Today we learn that they followed up with that horrible faux pas with something, IMHO, way worse. Zara listed for sale a pajama top meant for babies that looked horrifyingly similar to the striped pajamas that Jews were forced to wear in German concentration camps in the 1940s. The striped pajamas emblazoned with a yellow Star of David is an image that anyone with any passing knowledge of the atrocities of the Jewish holocaust would well recognize … except for the folks at Zara. Click below to see a side-by-side comparison of the almost-matching pajamas and read what Zara had to say in apology. More »

Justin Bieber managed to make it thru a day without having the police called on him (well, since we last heard about the police being called on him) but after you watch the video below, you may want to file a police report for crimes against the humanities. JB posted a short video on his official Instagram profile that is likely to anger quite a few Johnny Cash fans. In the video, Bieber and his BFF Khalili Sharieff (the guy he got arrested with back in January for allegedly drag racing in Miami, FL) perform a short cover of Cash‘s iconic song Ring of Fire. You know you want to hear it below, right? More »
Earlier this month we learned that Kanye West was deposed in the on-going civil lawsuit that was brought against him by a paparazzi photographer that alleges that West assaulted him at LAX Airport (you may recall that we saw photos last year that seem to confirm the photog’s allegation). In his depo, Kanye tried to liken the “struggle” that celebrities face with the actual struggle that people endured during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. Ugh. Today we learn new information from West‘s deposition … we learn that Kanye actually has respect for some paparazzi photographers and we also learn that his father was a paparazzo himself. Waitaminute, say what?! More »

Michael Sam, the first openly gay player in the NFL, is currently hard at work training with his team the St. Louis Rams as they prepare for the forthcoming new football season and was the subject of a “news report” on ESPN‘s SportsCenter yesterday. For some reason, the folks at ESPN thought it would make a good “news report” to focus on Michael Sam‘s locker room showering habits. You see, as an openly gay man, it is important — ESPN believed — to let the world know if/how/when/etc. Michael Sam (a gay man) showers or doesn’t shower with his fellow teammates (presumably straight men). Click the embed above to watch the “news report” in full.
After the segment aired, ESPN was inundated with complaints over the “news report” to the point where ESPN decided to apologize today for airing the segment. You can read their apology below. More »
It’s been about a week since we first learned officially that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have separated. And while imminent divorce rumors are running rampant, there has been no official confirmation that the couple’s marriage is completely dunzo just yet. No matter, Mimi is not letting any of the drama keep her down — not even when estranged husband Nick Cannon keeps talking mess about her even tho he is legally barred from opening his mouth about the couple’s marriage woes. Mariah took her twin children — Monroe and Moroccan Scott — out for a pizza lunch date in NYC this week lookin’ about as happy as can be. Later in the day, with Dem Babies put to bed, MC stepped out for a night on the town for some grown folk fun. Whether Mariah is doing all of this stuff in full sight of the public for show or not doesn’t really matter. She was fine before she met and married Nick Cannon and she will most definitely be completely fine should she choose to formally end her marriage to him. Mariah Carey is living life right now. Good for her.
For the past few months, we’ve been hearing about all of the work that Madonna has been doing in the recording studio with various songwriters and producers. Altho we have yet to hear official confirmation that Madonna is nearing completion of her project, it seems more and more likely that she is getting ready to announce … something. Yesterday, Madonna‘s official website was updated with new images and a new logo that seems to suggest that a new era of music is close at hand. More »

Henry Cavill and Amy Adams are among the latest celebrities to accept The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and today, we get to see the video that they did while on the Detroit, MI set of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. The neat thing about this video is that Henry and Amy accepted the challenge in costume as Superman and Lois Lane. Make sure you watch to the very end … this is one challenge that keeps on giving and giving. Hahaha. Enjoy.
Last May it was rumored that actress Hayden Panettiere and fiancé Wladimir Klitschko got pregnant and today, we not only learn that the rumor is true but we also learn the sex of the couple’s baby … which was accidentally revealed on the red carpet of the 66th annual Emmy Awards last night. Hayden confirmed her pregnancy a few days ago when she accepted The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge but, as I understand it, intended to keep the sex of the baby private until it was born. While talking with E! News last night on the Emmys red carpet, Hayden accidentally let slip the sex of her incubating fetus. Click below to see Hayden rockin’ her bump on the red carpet and find out if she is having a girl or a boy. More »
