Fifty thousand angry people booed and hissed at a concert in Manchester on Saturday when Lady Gaga, who was supposed to be performing to support the band Take That, decided to skip out. Is there anybody else reading this who has never heard of Take That? Well, regardless, I’m sure most of you have heard of Lady Gaga and with the price of concert tickets these days, I’d be pretty pissed if a big shot like her didn’t show for a…show. [Metro UK] After the jump, some other artists who’ve been MIA at gigs. Keep reading »
As if last week weren’t traumatic enough, over the weekend, some jokester hacked into Britney Spears‘ TwitPic account (it isn’t owned by Twitter, but it’s used to turn pics into tweets) and claimed she was dead. “Britney has passed today,” read the message. “It is a sad day for everyone. More news to come.” Thank goodness it was bogus—what would we have done if we’d lost the King and Princess of Pop in the same week?!
Interestingly, this isn’t the first time someone busted into Britney’s account. And also this weekend, Ellen DeGeneres’ TwitPic account got hacked. [MTV] — Maybe the site is super vulnerable to impostors? After the jump, check out more celebrity fake-outs, mostly hilarious. Keep reading »
While we regular women find it hard to keep up with Megan Fox and her hotness, try being her “Transformers” stunt double. Vanity Fair sat down with danger woman Stacey Carino, who was a 5th grade science teacher. After surviving a room full of preteens and jumping between rooftops to avoid explosions, Ms. Carino knows a thing or two about stayin’ in shape. She revealed her secret for getting the perfect body: mountain biking. Stacey swears, “It keeps you strong without looking strong. For stunt girls, you have to have that. You have to be fit without looking fit.”
Michael Jackson’s initial autopsy findings are, in a word, scary. Not only did he weigh a shockingly-low 112 pounds at his time of death, but his stomach was empty and had just pills in it. Docs say he hadn’t eaten for at least six hours. And he was injecting a lot of pain killers, especially Demerol, which is possibly what stopped his heart. Also, his body was covered in scars, bumps, bruises, and cuts which means he was probably falling down a lot, though some of the scars are surely from getting plastic surgery 13 times. Jackson was also practically bald—sadly, that long, black hair was a wig.

This video gave me the mega Monday sadsies. Last night, just a few days after her brother’s death, Janet Jackson stepped out to give thanks to his fans at the BET Awards. For a minute, she was able to keep her composure. “To you, Michael is an icon. To us, Michael is family,” she said. “And he will forever live in all of our hearts. On behalf of my family and myself, thank you for all of your love. Thank you for all of your support. We miss him so much.” Then her voice got shaky. Although a few days have passed, his death is still evoking sadness of epic proportions. [CNN] Keep reading »
