Folks in Huntington Beach and other coastal communities in southern California had a little weather surprise yesterday.
Pea-sized hail fell on the area, and for a while, coated the beaches and grassy areas with white stuff.
A rare occasion, to be sure. It didn't stick around long - as you'll see from the video, it melted pretty quickly - which is certain to upset folks in the Northeast, who've been dealing with record amounts of unmeltedness this season.
And as you'll see from the video, at least one enterprising Californian figured out a way to surf on it.
Jon Gosselin from "Jon and Kate plus 8" has been trying to find his place in this world. And although he is probably the most irrelevant person on planet earth, you can't help but giggle at this story. First he was a reality tv star, then a construction worker, and now......he's a DJ. And his first gig was spinning at a bowling alley.........for ONE person. But what makes this story great, is that ONE person seemed to REALLY like it. I mean she was in the ZONE. Check out the video below. Hey, maybe he finally found his calling. If you want to book Jon for YOUR next big event........you must really be desperate. Check out the video below. [For real though, best of luck to Jon, lord knows he's the mayor of Struggletown right now.]
Gunshots rang out during a college event headlined by T.I. and Jeezy and the crowd scattered in chaos. The guys were playing at a day party in Charlotte when someone in the crowd fired what sounded like 2 shots. Police say two people suffered non-life threatening injuries and both were hospitalized. Cops say no one's been arrested. They do not have a suspect yet. Although a T.I. song was playing when the shots were fired, we're told it was just a track. T.I. had already performed and was not on stage. Jeezy and Yo Gotti (who had also performed) were in the V.I.P. section at the time of the shooting. The show was an event to celebrate the C.I.A.A. basketball tournament.
Kelly Osbourne is leaving "Fashion Police", and everyone is assuming it's because Giuliana Rancic insulted her friend Zendaya during their post-Oscar show. Giuliana said Zendaya's dreadlocks probably smelled like patchouli and weed which suddenly became about race, not about the fact that hippies and stoners of all colors wear dreads. Well, Kelly was particularly upset, because Zendaya is a friend. She threatened to leave, so Giuliana issued a completely pandering, over-the-top apology. But Kelly is leaving anyway. E! says she's leaving to "pursue other opportunities." NeNe Leaks and Khloe Kardashian are among those rumored to replace her.
Justin Bieber turned 21 yesterday, and he celebrated by partying on a private Caribbean island that he'd rented out. Naturally, a bunch of his friends were there with him. There are photos and videos online of him partying shirtless with models (Hailey Baldwin and Yovanna Ventura). The festivities included champagne and sparklers. Justin Tweeted, "Grateful to be alive!!! Love u!!! 21. I love everybody!"
Ludacris is going to be a father for the third time. Over the weekend, he announced that his wife Eudoxie is pregnant. He posted a photo of him kissing her belly ON INSTAGRAM, and captioned it: "Beautiful day on the beach." This will be their first child together.
Michelle Rodriguez was asked about a rumor that she might be the next Green Lantern, her response was pretty unexpected. She said, "That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Because of this whole 'minorities in Hollywood' thing it's so stupid. It's like, you know, stop stealing all the white people's superheroes. Like, make up your own." Of course she had to apologize. She posted a video on Facebook explaining herself, "I think that there are many cultures in Hollywood that are not white and that can come up with their own mythology. I'm just saying that instead of trying to turn a girl character into a guy or instead of trying to turn a white character into a black character or a Latin character, I think that people should stop being lazy and, you know, that people should actually make an effort in Hollywood to develop their own mythology."
Drake has 14 songs on the Billboard Hot 100, which ties The Beatles' record for the most songs on the chart at one time. The Beatles record has stood for 51 years. That's an accomplishment, but it's also a sign of the times. When the Beatles set the record, they had five of the Top 10 songs on the chart, but Drake doesn't crack the Top 15. Also, Drake is just a featured act on four of his 14 songs.
