M.I.A. Tweets New York Times Reporter’s Number

When a journalist does a profile piece about a subject, sometimes they end up looking good and other times, well, not so much. Apparently, M.I.A. thinks all reporters have to be nice to her. She proved today that if she isn’t pleased with the story, she’ll retaliate in a ridiculously childish way. Upset by a New York Times Magazine cover story by Lynn Hirschberg, M.I.A. Tweeted the reporter’s phone number. Her Tweet made it look like the number was hers and said, “Call me if you wanna talk to me about the NYT Truth issue…” Hirschberg handled the situation much better than the obnoxious rapper, whose video for “Born Free” we still aren’t feeling. She said, “It’s a fairly unethical thing to do, but I don’t think it’s surprising,” she said.”She’s a provocateur, and provocateurs want to be provocative.” Surprisingly, Hirschberg won’t be changing her digits.

This Baby Smokes 40 Cigarettes A Day

Meet Ardi Rizal. He is a smoking baby. He is two. Did I mention that he smokes? He favors a specific brand and throws a temper tantrum if he doesn’t get his 40 cigarettes a day. I’d think I was making this up if it weren’t for this video, starring Ardi, the smoking baby. He’s been smoking since he was 18 months old. His father got him started. The family lives in Sumatra, Indonesia. It says he can blow smoke rings, and I think he does at the end, although you can’t really see it. On account of all the cancer sticks, he is “is too unfit to run with the other children.” His mother says he is “totally addicted.” If she tries to make him stop, “he gets angry and screams and batters his head against the wall.” Officials offered the family a car if they got the baby to stop smoking. The father says, “I don’t see the problem.” What the hell? I don’t see this ending well. [Gawker] Keep reading »

Woman Sues Wireless Company After Husband Discovers Affair Through Phone Bill

The thing about huge jerks is that, because they are huge jerks, they will find every opportunity to avoid responsibility for how out-of-control their jerkitude has gotten. This is perhaps why Gabriella Nagy is suing the Canadian phone company Rogers Wireless for $600,000 for sending her cell phone records along with her and her husband’s regular phone bill, which subsequently led to him discovering that she was having an affair. Nagy complained that, “The thing that really hurt me is that it all came out not through my own doing.” Because, obviously, the phone company had the affair on her behalf. Keep reading »

Teen Werewolf Gangs Running Wild At Texas High School

Ah, teenagers. One day they’re drinking vodka through their eyeballs. The next day they’re sexting each other to death. Now, teen werewolves are marauding through a high school in San Antonio, Texas. They like to chill out near the mall under a full moon, hang fake “wolf” tails from their bottoms and rock freaky contacts and fake fangs, and have undoubtedly seen “Twilight” one too many times. “They’re good kids,” says one mom. I thought this was a pretty amusing report until I got to the part about the neighborhood dog that disappeared. Now, I’m scared. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Chinese Woman Experiences Hearing Loss After “Kiss Of Deaf”

Love may be blind, but kissing can leave you deaf. A Chinese woman was left partially deaf in her left ear after a particularly, um, passionate kiss from her boyfriend. According to China Daily, “The kiss reduced the pressure in the mouth, pulled the eardrum out and caused the breakdown of the ear.” Seriously?! Luckily, the woman is expected to regain her full hearing in about two months, but Shanghai Daily is warning others about the dangers excessive kissing presents: “A strong kiss may cause an imbalance in the air pressure between two inner ears and lead to a broken ear drum.” Is nothing safe?!

Mugabe To Gift A “Noah’s Ark” To Kim Jong-il

Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe has plans to send two of several animal species living in Zimbabwe’s 14,600 kilometer Hwange National Park to North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong-il. The “Noah’s Ark” is meant as a gift of gratitude to Kim for allowing the North Korea national soccer team to train in Zimbabwe. Two 18-month-old elephants, black and white rhinos, cheetahs, lions, leopards, giraffes, and zebras are speculated to be on the list of wildlife that will make the approximately 7,000-mile journey to North Korea.
