Radio Station Goes All “Glee” All the Time

British “Gleeks” are celebrating the creation of an all-”Glee” radio station. Oxford, U.K.’s “New Directions”-themed station only plays songs recorded by the cast of the hit Fox show. That means its musical roster is limited to around 180 tracks — of everything from Journey’s anthemic “Don’t Stop Believing” to Lady Gaga’s poppy “Alejandro.”

While that doesn’t seem like a lot of songs, keep in mind that the average radio station keeps around 150 songs in rotation at any given moment. Station managers are hoping to attract 30-something women with the “Glee”-ful programming. Now if only they could somehow send us Finn through the radio waves … [NY Post] Keep reading »

What’s Your Most Over-The-Top Breakup Moment?

Breakups are never pleasant, but sometimes lovers just exacerbate the pain and humiliation. Like Anthony Hinrichs, of Madison, Wisconsin. Anthony and his gal pal Tonia were caught having sex — in a park, in broad daylight — by a team of firefighters and Anthony’s girlfriend. Keep reading »

Cruel Cuts & Breakups: The 9 Worst Celebrity Splits

It’s quite a time for vicious breakups: Jesse James and Sandra Bullock, Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren. And just last week Esquire released a scathing story about the breakup of ex-Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich’s second marriage (not the first one — when he married his high school geometry teacher).

In it, Gingrich’s ex-wife Marianne exposed what really went down when the couple split in 2000. Gingrich — who publicly preached family values — was having an affair with the woman who would become wife number three, and asked Marianne to “tolerate” it. According to Marianne, he told her he wanted to split because “she was a Jaguar and all he wanted was a Chevrolet. ‘I can’t handle a Jaguar right now.’ He said that many times. ‘All I want is a Chevrolet.’”

In honor of Newt and Marianne — and all the other not-so-happily broken-up couples out there — we’ve compiled a list of some of the nastiest celebrity breakups. Enjoy!

We’re Going to Die Alone, And That’s OK

Our hilarious (and adorable) friend Ryan made this all-too-true T-shirt and we had to share.

In case you can’t see the small type, it says: “I am going to die alone. I only have myself to blame. I’m picky and a little crazy and maybe I’m in love with my good friend who’s totally not into me, but whatever. I’m NOT bitter. And no, I won’t internet date, thank you very much. And Fine, I’m a lot crazy. But that doesn’t mean that I should just settle for some nice guy who doesn’t go to the gym and has s**tty taste in everything. I’d rather die. Alone.”

We’ll take two, please. [Lamestain] Keep reading »

Joaquin Phoenix Channels His Inner “Mountaintop Raindrop,” Whatever That Means


Oh Joaquin Phoenix. We loved you in “Walk the Line” and “Reservation Road.” And we’re even willing to let it slide that you were in all those crappy M. Night Shyamalan movies. But this current thing you’re doing — your fake-rapper fake-documentary”I’m Still Here” — is really bumming us out. It’s not that you made a pseudo-documentary that’s so depressing — it’s that it looks totally, ridiculously unfunny. And for that, we can’t forgive. Keep reading »

Altared States: 11 Celebs With Super-Short Marriages

13 Celebs With Super-Short Marriages

Sinead, say it isn’t so! Sinead O’Connor announced on her website that she and her new husband, Barry Herridge, are splitting 18 days after they married in Las Vegas. Sinead blamed the split on the influence of people in Herridge’s family who didn’t approve of their union, especially in light of rumors about Sinead in the press. She wrote:

“Within 3 hours of the ceremony being over the marriage was kyboshed by the behaviour of certain people in my husband’s life. And also by a bit of a wild ride i took us on looking for a bit of a smoke of weed for me wedding night as I don’t drink. My husband was enormously wounded and very badly effected by that experience and also by the attitude of those close to him toward our marriage. It became apparent to me that if he were to stay with me he would be losing too much to bear.”

Sinead wished her soon-to-be ex well, calling him a wonderful person and saying, ”A woman wants to be a joy to her husband. So.. U love someone? Set them free.” Sad to see their “cock in mouth situation” come to an end.

Sinead’s (third!) marriage joins a long line of short celeb marriages. Keep clicking to see some of the other speedy celebrity marriages that met an early demise.

Katy Perry And 7 Other Celebs Who Have Crashed Prom

Katy Perry
Over the weekend a bunch of excited Aussie teenagers got a surprise visit from pop songstress Katy Perry. Apparently the singer wasn’t too busy kissing girls or gushing wildly about her boyfriend Russell Brand to make a pit stop at the Melbourne High School prom, where she drunkenly ran through her hit “California Gurls.”

But Perry isn’t the only celeb who’s crashed a prom or two. After the jump, more celebs who have made someone else’s prom the night of their lives.

Quotable: Lady Gaga Likes Penises And Vaginas

“I will always have as much penis as I do vagina. And, no, I’m not going to explain that; it’s part of the answer.”

– Lady Gaga on … her artistic process? Her love life? Who knows? Lady Gaga, go on with your incomprehensible bad self. [MTV] Keep reading »

Amputee Plays Piano With His Feet Better Than We’ll Ever Play With Our Hands


There’s nothing like an armless piano savant to make us realize that we’ve never truly accomplished anything with our lives. Twenty-three-year-old Liu Wei lost his arms in an electrocution accident when he was only 10 years old. But that didn’t stop him from learning to play the piano — with his toes. Liu appeared last week on “China’s Got Talent” and blew the competition away. Trust us, you’ll be crying by the end. [Gawker] Keep reading »
