Harold Camping “Flabbergasted” That The Rapture Didn’t Happen

“[I'm] flabbergasted. It has been a really tough weekend. I’m looking for answers. But now I have nothing else to say. I’ll be back to work Monday and will say more then.”

—Harold Camping, the 89-year-old radio evangelist who predicted that the rapture was going to take place on Saturday at 6 p.m., responds to the fact that it didn’t. He had been reported to be “in hiding” after the time came and went, but a reporter from the San Francisco Chronicle found him by … knocking on his door. Here’s betting he’ll have a new date pinpointed by the end of the week. [USA Today] Keep reading »

Britney Spears And Rihanna Pillow Fight At The Billboard Music Awards


Remember when Britney Spears used to perform at award shows as, like, a rule, because she was a huge pop star? Nowadays it seems like she’s trotted out of her holding pen to make random, half-assed appearances during other stars’ award show performances as some sort of “comeback” statement. So, that makes her random, half-assed, minute-long cameo during Rihanna‘s “S&M” performance at last night’s Billboard Music Awards her, what, 8th comeback? I love Britney, don’t get me wrong — I will love her until I’m old and grey and cranky and think even classical music sounds like racket. But seriously, I wish Britney was let off her leash and given the opportunity to stand and perform on her own, not just as a backup dancer in Rihanna’s sort of sad “good girl gone bad” fantasies.

Phew. Rant over. Last night’s big Billboard Music Award winners, after the jump… Keep reading »

14 Celebrities With Underwear Lines

David Beckham looks darn good in a pair of tighty-whities. So I’m not too surprised that the man is planning on launching an underwear line this year. “I have had the idea of doing a bodywear collection for some time now. [Emporio Armani] told me that their gross turnover in 2007 was around 16 million euros and after the campaign in 2008 it went up to 31 million euros. It proved to me that there is a real market for good-looking, well-made men’s bodywear,” he said. “I can’t wait to show people the collection, although I’m not sure my mum will be too happy seeing a billboard image of me in underwear again.” Hey, we don’t mind.

Tornadoes Devastate Midwest

Our thoughts and prayers go out to those in the Midwest, particularly Missouri, who’ve been affected by the tornadoes that ravaged the area this weekend. A massive tornado tore through southwestern Missouri, killing at least 89 people, and destroying cars and homes in its path, one of 68 tornadoes reported in seven Midwest states. Frisky readers, please feel free to share your thoughts — and links to new information — in the comments. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Justin Timberlake Does What He Does (Second) Best On “Saturday Night Live”


When “SNL” was done cracking jokes about prison rape, this weekend’s season finale was the highest rated in seven years, thanks, mostly, to the star power of host Justin Timberlake and musical guest Lady Gaga. Listen, I want Justin to give up his acting aspirations and record a new album as much as anyone, but maybe he could get his acting fix by becoming a semi-regular cast member on “SNL”? He’s so good at it! Above, the hi-larious digital short featuring Justin and Andy Samberg’s “Dick in a Box” crooners singing about “3-Way (The Golden Rule),” in which a threesome with two guys “is not gay” so long as there’s a chick (a chola-licious Lady Gaga) in the middle. After the jump, two of my other favorite moments… Keep reading »

“Saturday Night Live” Opens With A Rape Joke

I have a sense of humor. I swear to God, I do. But, damn it, rape jokes are never funny.

Even though the opening skit of this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” starred the only two black men in the cast as inmates at Rikers Island meeting accused sexual predator Dominique Strauss-Kahn (played by Taran Killiam), I was willing to go with it. Slightly racist casting there, but who knows, maybe they were the two cast members most enthusiastic about the material? Anyway, the skit was pretty funny: Keenan Thompson and Jay Pharoah played two guys locked in a cell bickering about the International Monetary Fund. I giggled a little, because it was silly. And then, at the end of the skit, Keenan says, “We’re going to rape you now.”
