Well isn’t that a glass half-full way to look at the situation. I’m glad the affair worked out so well for them.

Occupy Wall Street got its biggest — if briefest — celeb occupier on Monday when Kanye West showed up at Liberty Square/Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan and pow-wowed with Russell Simmons. Simmons was there showing his support for the movement, and while Kanye has yet to say what he thought of his time among the eclectic community of occupiers, Simmons had this to say:
“It was amazing to see how people loved seeing Kanye West at Occupy Wall Street. His music and his art has always been about the voice and the power of the people. Kanye just wanted to come down and experience the growing movement that has opened the eyes of many around this country and around the world of the struggles of poor people. The energy at Liberty Plaza was electrifying and the momentum to get the money out of politics is growing quickly.”
If Kanye’s interest is genuine, awesome, but I hope reports that he wore a gold grill for the visit are untrue. A Givenchy shirt is one thing, but a gold grill is just so … how should I put this? … one percent. [Global Grind, Village Voice]
Here are 11 other celeb occupiers down at Liberty Square…
When I was a child, there were three things that defined my style — big earrings, hats, and vests. Big earrings and hats are style preferences that not everyone shares, but I’m going to argue that everyone needs a vest or two. For one, they’re excellent for layering this time of year, but won’t be too hot when the temperature warms during the day. And vests show that you’re more adventurous than simply choosing a jacket or cardigan as a cover-up. Here are nine of our favorite knit, tunic-length, drape-y, and menswear-inspired vests.
It was the toot heard ’round the television: Nancy Grace let one rip on “Dancing With The Stars” and she’s been trying to live down the mockery ever since. It is not all public humiliation, though Nancy has attracted the attention of a little known fetish website of “flatulophiliacs,” aka “fart fanatics.” We had no idea fart fetishists existed. Jo Merlone, marketing director for the web site Clips4Sale.com, penned a letter to “Dancing With The Stars” requesting the rights for three seconds of footage of Nancy’s famed fart. “In case you weren’t aware,” Jo Merlone implored, “this is a very popular niche online and we know just how many of Nancy’s fans would love to relieve the moment in the privacy of their own homes via our web site. Passing gas is as natural as breathing and our members are waiting with baited breath.” Oh my. Don’t keep the fart fetishists waiting, ABC — that would just be cruel. [BuzzFeed]
Flatulophilia isn’t the only fetish that caught us off guard — after the jump, here’s 10 more crazy sexual practices that came as a surprise.
Celebs—they’re just like us! Despite their good looks and mega bank accounts, they have a rough time on the dating trail too. Take, for example, miss Tori Spelling.
“Back in my 20s when I was on ’90210,’ I was at a club one night and bumped into a guy that I hadn’t seen since high school. At the time, Donna Martin was making crappy boy choices, but I was determined to find The One! … [We went] to the chicest, most expensive and trendiest new restaurant/lounge in Beverly Hills … He announced, slamming down his menu, ‘I’m not very hungry. What do you say we just get drinks?’ … Four rum and Cokes and two hours of a one-way conversation later, I was way too drunk and bored … I was feeling sick. Actually, the room started spinning at this point … I excused myself from the riveting conversation and bolted for the bathroom … I pushed open the door, smiled with victory, and walked right into—the kitchen. The whole kitchen staff looked up at me. I put my hands up to cover my mouth, but I knew it was too late. A waiter rushed over with a massive copper saucepan where I proceeded to vomit the four rum and cokes and the Cliff Bar I had had at 11 a.m. into it. It was Donna Martin prom night all over again.” [Us Magazine]

My first bourbon experience was at a dark bar in New Orleans, where I ordered “bourbon, on the rocks” because I thought it would make me sound cool. I took one sip and started retching, so the bartender put a sympathetic shot of cola in my glass. “Try it like this,” he said, and I did, and started coughing and retching again. “Maybe a little more…” he said, and we continued on like this until finally he just gave me a Coke on the rocks. My dreams of being cool died that day, but now that I’m older and wiser I’d like to try this whole bourbon thing again.
I asked my friends Patrick and Rachel, who run ThereWillBeBourbon.net, to compile a list of ways to enjoy this classic spirit. Whether you’re a seasoned sipper or a bourbon newbie like me, there’s sure to be a suggestion for you (the bourbon chocolate chip cookies sound like just my style). Read on for imbibing inspiration (recipes included!)…
Jon Hamm has nabbed himself four Emmys playing the now-iconic role of Don Draper on “Mad Men.” But apparently, he was not producers first choice for the role. And he actually knows who the makers of the show originally had in mind for the starring role—Thomas Jane of “Hung.” “Nobody knew who I was. The casting directors didn’t know who I was. I wasn’t on anybody’s lists,” Jon explained on comedian Marc Maron’s podcast this week. “The funny thing was, I think they went to Thomas Jane for it, and they were told that Thomas Jane does not do television.” Hee hee. [Huffington Post]
In Hollywood, this happens all the time—big actors often turn down parts that then make a newcomer a bonafide star. Did you know that Michelle Pfeiffer was the original choice for “Pretty Woman?” Or that Kellan Lutz was turned down audition for Edward Cullen in “Twilight”? Many more examples after the jump.
