‘Tis the season for celebrity political endorsements, and just yesterday comes another one — this time from Kelly Clarkson. Kelly says that while she considers herself a Republican, she can’t abide by Mitt Romney’s anti-gay marriage stance, and has decided to support Obama. Additionally, she said, “I’ve been reading online about the debates and I’m probably going to vote for Obama again … I can’t support Romney’s policies as I have a lot of gay friends and I don’t think it’s fair they can’t get married.”
Additionally, she voiced concern over women’s rights issues. “I’m not a hardcore feminist but we can’t be going back to the ’50s,” she said.
Last year, Clarkson voiced her support for Ron Paul, but then retracted it after it was found that Paul was linked to several racist and homophobic pamphlets. “I am really sorry if I have offended anyone. Obviously that was not my intent. I do not support racism. I support gay rights, straight rights, women’s rights, men’s rights, white/black/purple/orange rights,” she said.

Back in 1999, Kid Rock and Scott Stapp of Creed made a little tape of them partying and getting blowies (thanks for the new term, Amelia) from groupies in a tour bus. The 45-minute video was supposedly stolen out of the safe in Stapp’s house in 2006, and fell into the hands of Red Light District, the company that brought you “One Night in Paris.” They released a preview online, but were sued for invasion of privacy by Stapp, Kid Rock, and one of the female stars of the video—all independently—before they could release the full thing. The case was settled in 2007—and the tape never to see the light of the day. But that isn’t keeping Stapp from talking about it. Keep reading »

Though nothing has been officially confirmed and the couple was seen together earlier this week, it would be a slightly shocking breakup, mostly for the alleged claim that Rihanna is JT’s other woman. After three years of on-again, off-again for Jessica and Justin, all it took was some sightings with the feisty singer to launch a truckload of rumors. [Terra] Though they might not be over IRL, it reminded us of some other shocking celebrity breakups! Keep reading »
Just like the bad boy, the sexy, skanky guy has a certain je nais se quoi. You know you shouldn’t date him because you’re just not sure he knows the meaning of hygiene. Does he really wash his hands after using the bathroom? And you just don’t know which groups his member has joined. But then again, a little dirt looks good on some folks. And you have to admit that sleazy guys don’t lack personality. So we’ve compiled a list of the best sexy, skanky guys. Most of our picks have a natural ickiness that makes them bed-able, but then others are on the list for a more specific reason, like Mickey Rourke for his role as Marv in “Sin City” and Kevin Federline for, well, everything.
