Ray Rice has been the subject of a lot of chatter these past few weeks, especially since he was released by the Baltimore Ravens after video surfaced of him knocking his then-girlfriend out in a casino elevator in Atlantic City.
Everyone’s talking about domestic abuse because of it, and it’s good for the conversation to happen.
But then you get interviews like this one, with Chris Brown doling out advice on MTV to Rice.
Yes, that Chris Brown. The one convicted of felony assault after beating Rihanna five years ago.
There’s something that doesn’t feel right about that… Maybe it’s just me.
Social media's been buzzing all weekend about an incident in Studio City, California last Thursday involving Django Unchained actress Daniele Watts.
The cops were responding to a 911 call about alleged indecent exposure inside an open car. When they arrived, they spotted Daniele (who's black) and her husband, Brian James Lucas (who's white) and demanded ID.
As Brian described it on his Facebook page: "I could tell that whoever called on us (including the officers), saw a tatted RAWKer white boy and a hot bootie shorted black girl and thought we were a HO (prostitute) & a TRICK (client)."
Because Daniele refused to produce her ID, the cops allegedly handcuffed her and put her in the back of their patrol car. There are pictures and video on Daniele's Facebook page.
The LAPD says that because no arrests were made, there's no official record of the incident.
Daniele and her husband are talking about hiring a lawyer.
While perforing in Australia over the weekend, Kanye West stopped his concert and said he couldn't go on until everyone was standing. He then went to great lengths to point out the two people who hadn't stood up with the rest.
One guy stood, but waved his prosthetic leg at Kanye, who gave him permission to sit back down.
But other guy didn't stand, and Kanye refused to start the show. When Kanye was told the concertgoer was in a wheelchair, Kanye allegedly told his security team to make sure the guy was handicapped. He didn't start the show until that was confirmed.
Way to go, Yeezy. Paying $100 or more to see you isn't enough to prove someone's a fan. Now you've got to get out of your seat too?
Or maybe Kanye thinks he's a healing force.
How long do you think it will be before he's on the road perfoming in "Yeezus Christ: Superstar?"
There's video of the incident, and it's painful to watch - especially when the audience started booing the guys who didn't stand up and yelled, "Stand up! Stand up!"
Who better to help you decide on political issues than a cartoon character, am I right?
No, this is not a Fox News joke...
On September 18, voters in Scotland - that's an island country in the Atlantic Ocean in the area aka the British Isles that's currently sorta-kinda under British rule, despite what we learned by watching Mel Gibson in Braveheart - will decide if their country will separate from the United Kingdom.
To help voters decide, Groundskeeper Willie (the kilt-wearing school janitor from The Simpsons) is weighing in on the side of independence.
And who better to run the new country than Willie himself. Why?
Because he won't be intimidated by other world leaders.
In his own words: "Willie won’t back down to world leaders because I haven’t a clue who they are, and I’m not willin’ to learn!”
If Scotland turns him away, sounds like we might have our first presidential candidate for 2016.
She's making us all upset this morning! Is Ellen Pompeo done with acting? That might just be the case! The Grey's Anatomy star has been playing her character Meredith Grey forever, and Ellen Pompeo said, "I definitely don't have a strong desire to act after Grey's. I definitely feel myself transitioning, I don't find acting terribly empowering. For the place I am in my life… I don't necessarily want to work for other people." Yeah, having the same job for nine years on the same SHOW can do that to you! Hopefully she won't give up!
Babs is back! That's right, Barbra Streisand is heading back to "The Tonight Show" for the first time in more than 50 years on Monday! The last time she was on the "Tonight Show" was with host Johnny Carson back in 1963 to promote her very first record! Jimmy Fallon will welcome Barbra Streisand back as his ONLY guest. Barbra Streisand is promoting the release of her new album "Partners." She's done very few interviews over the years and Jimmy Fallon has a night of talk, comedy and performances planned. So I bet there's going to be a LOT of surprises!
Sharon Osbourne learned an important lesson last night! Don't take your eyes off your husband! Sharon Osbourne took her eyes off Ozzy Osbourne for just ONE second and he ended up in the wrong car! To be fair, the cars did look exactly alike, but has that ever happened to you? I've just WALKED to the wrong car before and felt so dumb! Awkward!
Angelina Jolie's former caregiver is speaking out this morning and I don't think Angelina Jolie is going to like it. Her caregiver is saying that Angelina Jolie just liked to feel a little bit of pain. She enjoyed the edge and even loved doing things like dipping her fingers into wax! Apparently Angelina Jolie even had an anorexic stage that she was rushed to the hospital for! But after being her caregiver for eight years, she's so proud of how far Angelina Jolie has come. I'm sure Angelina Jolie was wishing she didn't hire this woman!
Bill Murray is getting ahead of himself! Ghostbusters 3 isn't even confirmed to be happening but he's already saying he wants a female-fronted movie. His suggestions include Melissa McCarthy, Emma Stone, Linda Cardellini and Kristin Wiig. Well, now we know at least one of those women are down for it! Kristen Wiig would totally say tes to the role and said that the fact that she's wanted is "very flattering." I'd love to see all of these ladies get involved, but lets get the movie approved to go first!
America's Got Talent has lined up amazing talent for their big finale on Wednesday. Tell me if you would watch, you ready? Here's their lineup: Train, Ed Sheeran, Pitbull, Jennifer Hudson AND Lenny Kravitz are all set to perform! It's going to air live from New York City's Radio City Music Hall on NBC. Now that's a way to get people to watch!
Ever since some of that interview Taylor Swift did with Rolling Stone came out, it's been surrounded by controversy and the rumor that she has beef with Katy Perry. Well, Taylor Swift also told the magazine some pretty interesting things about herself. Like who knew that she had a HUGE potty mouth? Or that she's basically Santa because of the amount of cookies she makes and needlepoints she's made! Oh, and she says she's never been the "psycho" ex-girlfriend. She walks away when things are bad. Now I'm not too sure about that one…
Over the weekend, the former first family of Alaska might have been involved in a brawl.
That’s what some official and not-so-much sources are reporting, anyway, about Sarah Palin and her family.
The communications director of the Anchorage PD confirmed that there was a fracas late on Saturday night at a house party for the Iron Dog snowmobile race. “Alcohol was believed to have been a factor in the incident,” says the spokesman. “Some of the Palin family members were in attendance at the party.”
A local blogger picks up the action. It was, she says, “a nice, mellow party” until the Palin Clan showed up. There was a confrontation, and all of a sudden, “Palin women screaming. Palin men thumping their chests. Word is that Bristol has a particularly strong right hook, which she employed repeatedly, and it’s something to hear when Sarah screams, ‘Don’t you know who I am!’”
No arrests were made, but according to the APD, there is still an active investigation by the police and the Municipal Prosecutor’s Office.
Hey, it’s summertime in Alaska. Things happen, right?
Once upon a time, Arnold Schwarzenegger was governor of California.
And one upon a time, he was also married to Maria Shriver, but that marriage ended badly, in divorce, after the world found out that Arnold had fathered a child with their longtime housekeeper.
Actually, both ended at about the same time, four years ago.
Fast forward to this week. Arnold returned to the state house in Sacramento to unveil his official gubernatorial portrait.
Folks in the know say that the portrait was touched up – and not too well – to remove a lapel pin that bore Maria’s likeness. Check out the portrait of the Governator – I drew a circle around the smudge on the left lapel where the pin used to be.
If you believe the sources, he literally took his ex out of the picture.
It looks like Arnold’s trying to rewrite history, just like the Terminator.
If this works, maybe he can make us forget Expendables 3.
