8 Celebs Who’ve Turned On The Award Shows That Honored Them

There was one rock star who didn’t give a crap about attending the MTV VMAs on Sunday. Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine wants nothing to do with the filthy enterprise. He tweeted his disgust for the show. “The VMA’s. One day a year when MTV pretends to still care about music … I’m drawing a line in the sand. f**k you VMA’s.” Ouch. I wonder if this has something to do with him not being nominated in a while? Let’s hope he didn’t smash his Best New Artist award from 2004 in a fit of anger. [Popdust]

Quickies: Michele Bachmann Loves White People UPDATE: It’s A Hoax!

  • Leave it to Rep. Michele Bachmann to yell “Who loves white people?” at a campaign stop. Fortunately, she was only referring to the White People Soul Band, a group that performed there. She probably shouldn’t appear with musicians that sound like White Power bands, though. (Just for the record, they’re not.) [BuzzFeed] UPDATE: It has come to our attention that this Michele Bachmann video is a hoax. The video was edited to make it sound like she says “Who loves white people” when in fact she appears to have said “Who loves wet people” before talking about the rain. She was not, in fact, referring to “White People” as the band that played before her (although there is a band called White People Soul Band). My apologies for not being aware the Bachmann vid was a hoax sooner. [Gawker]

If Hurricane Irene Were A Rom-Com

What do Hurricane Irene and “I Don’t Know How She Does It” have in common? They both are going to take the box office by storm. Well maybe not. But together, they make a good joke. Our apologies to Sarah Jessica Parker’s face. Nothing personal. [Urlesque] Keep reading »

10 Things That Shocked Me About Lands’ End Canvas

The other day my friend Niki said, “Hey do you know about Lands’ End Canvas? They have really cute things.” and then the next few minutes played out like a really contrived commercial.

Kate Winslet Talks Escaping From That Fire

“I’m just glad that everyone is safe. And this easily could not have been the case … I will never forget Richard placing his arms around both my children as we were watching the flames, and saying, ‘At the end of the day, what you realize is that all that matters is the people that you love. Everything else is just stuff. And none of that stuff matters.’”

Kate Winslet talks for the first time about the fire that occurred while she was vacationing on Richard Branson’s Necker Island with her children and her boyfriend, Louis Dowler. The 20 people staying at the resort made it out unharmed, Branson’s 90-year-old grandmother only because Winslet carried her out on her back. Even Branson’s tortoise managed to get out. Apparently, the fire started from a lightening strike thanks to Hurricane Irene. Irene, you have a lot to answer for. [NY Daily News]
