So much happens in a week! It’s hard to keep it all straight. That’s why we’re keeping track for you, with our new helpful charticle, Totally Awesome, Totally Crap, which highlights the best and worst of the past seven days. This week: We’re loving Adele giving the middle finger at the Brit Awards. You do not cut off Adele. We’re also super stoked that “Community” — the best, most underrated show on TV — will officially be returning on March 15. Also getting the thumbs up: Zac Efron “accidentally” dropping a condom at the premiere of his new movie, “The Lorax.” Hooray for using protection! I am secretly hoping it’s because he’s boning the Lorax.
Totally sucky this week? Rihanna recording a song with ex-lover/beater/total shitbird Chris Brown. We’re also kind of disgusted that Bobby Brown is writing a tell-all. Too soon! Plus, what don’t we know about you after we watched you pull poop out of Whitney’s ass on your reality show? Beyond that — is there no such thing as deep, unabiding, trustful love anymore? Jessica Biel doesn’t think so, which is why she’s reportedly making Justin Timberlake sign a pre-nup that grants her at least $500,000 every time he cheats. True love is dead.
“This was a result of a horrible relationship that went sour. I was in love—he was in love with money … A former very dear person to me did this. Set me up to make it look exactly what it looks like. God will smite them yes. But it’s really not what it looks like. People will do anything for money which is extremely sad, and I’m very hurt by this … All I can do now, is keep my head up high, keep looking towards the lord.
—Bobbi Kristina Brown, the 18-year-old daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, responds to the images of her allegedly snorting cocaine that ran in the National Enquirer this week. If it’s not what it looks like—what exactly is it? [Vibe Magazine] Keep reading »
I don’t know if you have to have been around to see the original version of Bobby Brown’s “Every Little Step” video to appreciate this oh-so faithful reenactment starring Wayne Brady and, um, Mike Tyson, but I find it to be totally hilarious. Mike needs to work on memorizing his choreography, though. Make sure to watch all the way through to catch “Celebrity Fit Club”-sort-of-grad Brown’s rapping resurrection. [Bishopia] Keep reading »
On Friday, Bobby Brown asked his girlfriend of three years, Alicia Etheridge, to marry him, while playing a music festival in Jacksonville, Florida. In the middle of his set, he invited Alicia and their baby, Cassius, on stage. And in time-honored famous person fashion, he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him in front of oodles of screaming fans. The moment was so sweet that we won’t even comment on how the heck someone can marry this man after his history with Whitney. [People]
What’s up with celebrities doing this? After the jump, other celebs who’ve gotten engaged on stage in recent memory. Keep reading »
In his new memoir, Bobby Brown: The Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing But…, Bobby Brown dishes dirt on his ex-wife Whitney Houston, fueling the rumors that she may have played for the other team. He writes:
“[Our marriage] was doomed from the very beginning… I think we got married for all the wrong reasons. Now, I realize Whitney had a different agenda than I did when we got married . . . I believe her agenda was to clean up her image, while mine was to be loved and have children. The media was accusing her of having a bisexual relationship with her assistant, Robin Crawford. Since she was the American Sweetheart and all, that didn’t go too well with her image . . . In Whitney’s situation, the only solution was to get married and have kids. That would kill all speculation, whether it was true or not.”
Hmm … his agenda was to be loved and get married, huh? Likely story! [OMG Blog] Keep reading »
Ain’t love grand? Even though Pink wrote an entire album about her split from motorcross bad ass Carey Hart, and even dissed him to his face in her “So What” video, the pair is now happily back together and even renewed their vows in Australia this week. Pink is on tour promoting Funhouse, i.e. the breakup record. “It’s funny to sing those songs now,” says Pink. “He’s in the audience, so when I sing ‘He’s a tool,’ now that’s my favorite line. I’m like, ‘Hi honey, that’s you!’” Awkward.
Oh, but Pink isn’t the only rock star to totally diss a former lovah in a song, only to take their ex back. It’s as if money, power, readily available groupies, and an entire world cheering their empowerment on isn’t enough. After the jump, the most egregious examples. Keep reading »
