This video shows the commotion after a teacher in Korea violently beat a student and then masturbated in front of the rest of his students. Police arrested the unidentified teacher (the man in the video with his pants down), for causing bodily harm to a minor and public exposure.
According to student witnesses, the teacher beat a boy “savagely” when he discovered he was wearing headphones in class. Then he ran out into the hallway and furiously masturbated. The teacher denies touching himself (although it’s hard to explain why he is pantsless if that’s the case) but admitted to the beating. He is suspended from the school indefinitely. WTF? [Guyism]
Gwyneth Paltrow generally leaves a bad taste in my mouth — a taste eerily reminiscent of wilted kale — but I am capable of appreciating aspects of her personality that are actually kind of endearing. Like the solid effort she put into the embarrassing task of imitating famous rappers like Jay-Z, Kanye West and Macklemore, on “Ellen” yesterday. Her Beyonce isn’t bad either. But that Chris Martin impression needs work.
Shane Dawson collected a bunch of really, really (really) dumb celebrity tweets, and then set them to Rihanna’s hit song “Stay.” The result is a faux-moving tribute featuring ridiculous tweets from Lindsay Lohan, Kanye West, Harry Styles and more. Remember a world before Twitter, when weren’t privy to the asinine thoughts of every famous person? Yeah, that was a time. [YouTube]
Judy Blume’s “Tiger Eyes” is one of those young adult novels I read multiple times as a teen, so I was beyond excited when I found out they were making it into a movie. And now there’s a trailer! Willa Holland stars as Davey, a 15-year-old girl who relocates with her family to New Mexico from New Jersey after her father is killed. Hiking in a canyon, she meets a mysterious young man named Wolf — played by Tatanka Means — and the two become fast friends (there are romantic sparks too). The story follows Davey as she struggles to come to terms with her father’s death while also progressing into womanhood. From the looks of the trailer, the movie looks so much like I imagined it would, probably because Blume and her son were closely involved in making the film. The movie opens June 7 — cannot wait.
Oh hello, check out our seriously posh new digs! We — and the rest of SpinMedia NYC — have a brand spankin’ new video studio, complete with flattering lighting and a huge flatscreen TV that displays our name (amongst other things). It’s all profesh up in this bitch now. As Drake would say, “Started from the bottom now we’re here / Started from the bottom now my whole team fucking here.” Sorry, I look for any excuse to quote Drake. Anyway, watch the video above to see what we’re wearing today!
Because seriously, not yap wa’ Hol — one language is never enough — you know? Especially when it comes to really bad pop songs. [YouTube]
Kelly McGrevey of Akron, Ohio was told that she was too fat to tan. McGrevey claims that Aloha Tanning Salon’s management told her she was too big to fit in their beds, but only after they sold her a membership and collected her money. After outing Aloha for being sizeist money grubbers on the local media and Facebook, they’ve agreed to give McGrevey a full refund for her membership. Graciously, another local tanning salon, Tanner’s, is giving McGrevey use of their beds for one month for free. I guess she’ll fit in a tanning bed after all.
It’s amazing to me that this woman would be turned away from a tanning salon but that Tanning Mom and her 5-year-old daughter can breeze in no problem. As a person who’s had skin cancer, I can’t say I fully support exposure to UV rays, but I hope Kelly McGrevey gets golden freaking brown just to stick it to the assholes at Aloha. [KHOU]
Tilda Swinton, you guys. Is there anyone better? In between laying in boxes at the Museum of Modern Art and starring in David Bowie videos, she starts dance parties. Here she is at Roger Ebert’s Film Festival in Champaign, Illinois, encouraging the audience to get up outta their seats and dance to Barry White’s “You’re the First, the Last, My Everything.” Yup, it’s pretty clear: Nobody’s having more fun than Tilda.
