There’s awkward errors and then there’s really awkward errors: subtitles on a BBC News weather report this week accidentally warned Glastonbury Gestival-goers to prepare for “rape” instead of rain. This Instagram pic shows the “unfortunate typo,” as a BBC spokesperson put it. I’m sure most newswatchers put it together themselves when the subtitles showed the newscaster advised packing one’s “wellies” — not a good deterrent of sexual assault. [Independent UK]
Let no one say Rumer Willis is not dedicated to the cause. The cause, remember, is letting nipples be freeeee. Weeks after her sister Scout Willis paraded around New York City topless, last night Rumer kept a shirt on but the girls still out on the red carpet. The cause? A fundraiser for “Free The Nipple,” a film made by their friend (left), actress Lina Esco. As if this all wasn’t weird enough, Russell Simmons hosted and Chris Brown’s girlfriend Karrueche Tran attended. Keep fighting the good fight, Willis sisters! [Image via Getty]
I love Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield. They’re adorable and clearly glass-half-full types, as they often use the paparazzi following them around like vultures to promote causes they believe it. Like today, the couple was photographed strolling around NYC carrying signs directing people who eventually looked at the snaps — like y’all! — to support YouthMentoring.org, AutismSpeaks.org, WWO.org and GildasClubNYC.org. Cool use of their fame — and definitely nicer than flippin’ the bird. Keep reading »
This is a clothing label produced by a Japanese brand called, fittingly, Fatyo, which has opted to forgo the traditional sizing model of small, medium, large, and extra-large, and instead label clothing with “twitch,” “skinny,” “fat,” and “jumbo.” Well, these terms are definitely … descriptive, if not particularly flattering. Would you ever buy a piece of clothing that had the word “fat” on the label? What about “twitch”? Maybe we should just stick to numbers? Those work pretty well. [UPI]
Most Brad Paisley songs include at least one shoutout to the joys of a cold beer. This is ostensibly why the Westboro Baptist Church (AKA the “God Hates Everyone” people) showed up to picket his concert in Kansas this weekend. Because God hates drunks, didn’t you know? Brad decided to make the most of the zany zealots’ presence by posing for a bemused selfie with them and posting it on Twitter. “Hopefully they can hear the show out here,” he wrote. “We’ll play loud.” Oh Brad, never change.
As they do. As part of their European Honeymoon Tour, newlyweds Kim Kardashian and Kanye West paid a visit to Ploskovice Castle in the Czech Republic for the wedding of a stylist friend — and found a moment to slip each other the tongue. Also, I thought it was verboten to wear white to a wedding, but I’ve noticed that the opposite seems to be true when it comes to the weddings of the one percent. Like, some rich people want people to wear white to their weddings, maybe even require it as part of the dress code. What’s up with that? Anyway, after the jump, a hilarious (to me) photo of Kanye guzzling from a big ol’ white goblet. These two are living the life. [Photos: Pacific Coast News] Keep reading »
