Social media's been buzzing all weekend about an incident in Studio City, California last Thursday involving Django Unchained actress Daniele Watts.
The cops were responding to a 911 call about alleged indecent exposure inside an open car. When they arrived, they spotted Daniele (who's black) and her husband, Brian James Lucas (who's white) and demanded ID.
As Brian described it on his Facebook page: "I could tell that whoever called on us (including the officers), saw a tatted RAWKer white boy and a hot bootie shorted black girl and thought we were a HO (prostitute) & a TRICK (client)."
Because Daniele refused to produce her ID, the cops allegedly handcuffed her and put her in the back of their patrol car. There are pictures and video on Daniele's Facebook page.
The LAPD says that because no arrests were made, there's no official record of the incident.
Daniele and her husband are talking about hiring a lawyer.
Ray Rice has been the subject of a lot of chatter these past few weeks, especially since he was released by the Baltimore Ravens after video surfaced of him knocking his then-girlfriend out in a casino elevator in Atlantic City.
Everyone’s talking about domestic abuse because of it, and it’s good for the conversation to happen.
But then you get interviews like this one, with Chris Brown doling out advice on MTV to Rice.
Yes, that Chris Brown. The one convicted of felony assault after beating Rihanna five years ago.
There’s something that doesn’t feel right about that… Maybe it’s just me.
Who better to help you decide on political issues than a cartoon character, am I right?
No, this is not a Fox News joke...
On September 18, voters in Scotland - that's an island country in the Atlantic Ocean in the area aka the British Isles that's currently sorta-kinda under British rule, despite what we learned by watching Mel Gibson in Braveheart - will decide if their country will separate from the United Kingdom.
To help voters decide, Groundskeeper Willie (the kilt-wearing school janitor from The Simpsons) is weighing in on the side of independence.
And who better to run the new country than Willie himself. Why?
Because he won't be intimidated by other world leaders.
In his own words: "Willie won’t back down to world leaders because I haven’t a clue who they are, and I’m not willin’ to learn!”
If Scotland turns him away, sounds like we might have our first presidential candidate for 2016.
While perforing in Australia over the weekend, Kanye West stopped his concert and said he couldn't go on until everyone was standing. He then went to great lengths to point out the two people who hadn't stood up with the rest.
One guy stood, but waved his prosthetic leg at Kanye, who gave him permission to sit back down.
But other guy didn't stand, and Kanye refused to start the show. When Kanye was told the concertgoer was in a wheelchair, Kanye allegedly told his security team to make sure the guy was handicapped. He didn't start the show until that was confirmed.
Way to go, Yeezy. Paying $100 or more to see you isn't enough to prove someone's a fan. Now you've got to get out of your seat too?
Or maybe Kanye thinks he's a healing force.
How long do you think it will be before he's on the road perfoming in "Yeezus Christ: Superstar?"
There's video of the incident, and it's painful to watch - especially when the audience started booing the guys who didn't stand up and yelled, "Stand up! Stand up!"

Nicki is sitting on a chair in the picture, and her rear end is oozing out of her shorts. And it just does not look like a part of her body. It actually looks like a cushion under Nicki's real booty.

Sarah Palin and her family reportedly got into a huge, drunken brawl at a party last Saturday in Anchorage. It started when Track Palin got into it with a guy that used to date his sister Willow. Pretty soon, the owner of the house got involved and Bristol ended up punching him in the face repeatedly. At one Sarah started screaming "Do you know who I am?!" and Todd Palin got a bloody nose. Police were called by nobody was arrested.
Vivid Video claims it has seen footage that appears to show Iggy Azalea and an ex-boyfriend's bedroom activities. The company has reached out to Iggy to negotiate a price — but she is adamant that the woman in the video is not her. In fact, Azalea's camp is reportedly set to file a lawsuit over the alleged footage. Iggy denied it all on Twitter last night, "I dont have a sex tape but for the record...Anyone who releases or attempts to make profit off someone else's intimate moments against their will is a sex offender & it honestly makes me sick to see the media encourage any other attitude towards those sorts of people, we should want to protect our women and i really hope that america will follow Europe and their laws to better protect peoples privacy and fundamental rights. and on that note, I'm off to get a manicure. peaaaaccceeeeeee outtttttt *drops the mic*"
Kendall Jenner posted THIS PICTURE of herself, from the back, in a dress, with her buttcheeks hanging out. And she captioned it, "Perv". So it seems like maybe she's calling out the photographer who took the photo. Then again, Kendall's the one who wore that dress in public and she's the one re-posting the pic on Twitter. If she was so bothered by it, would she be putting it out there for the world to see? Of course not.
Pharrell is pretty busy these days, he's currently on tour, and he's a coach on "The Voice" this fall. But it sounds like there could be some new stuff from his group N.E.R.D. on the way. During a Pharrell show this week, N.E.R.D. member Shay Haley showed up onstage, and hinted, "You're going to like this s*** we're gonna release!" Pharrell responded, "Uh oh, Shay's talking!" Then he added, "Giants don't die, they just sleep." Their last album came out in 2010.
Once upon a time, Arnold Schwarzenegger was governor of California.
And one upon a time, he was also married to Maria Shriver, but that marriage ended badly, in divorce, after the world found out that Arnold had fathered a child with their longtime housekeeper.
Actually, both ended at about the same time, four years ago.
Fast forward to this week. Arnold returned to the state house in Sacramento to unveil his official gubernatorial portrait.
Folks in the know say that the portrait was touched up – and not too well – to remove a lapel pin that bore Maria’s likeness. Check out the portrait of the Governator – I drew a circle around the smudge on the left lapel where the pin used to be.
If you believe the sources, he literally took his ex out of the picture.
It looks like Arnold’s trying to rewrite history, just like the Terminator.
If this works, maybe he can make us forget Expendables 3.
Over the weekend, the former first family of Alaska might have been involved in a brawl.
That’s what some official and not-so-much sources are reporting, anyway, about Sarah Palin and her family.
The communications director of the Anchorage PD confirmed that there was a fracas late on Saturday night at a house party for the Iron Dog snowmobile race. “Alcohol was believed to have been a factor in the incident,” says the spokesman. “Some of the Palin family members were in attendance at the party.”
A local blogger picks up the action. It was, she says, “a nice, mellow party” until the Palin Clan showed up. There was a confrontation, and all of a sudden, “Palin women screaming. Palin men thumping their chests. Word is that Bristol has a particularly strong right hook, which she employed repeatedly, and it’s something to hear when Sarah screams, ‘Don’t you know who I am!’”
No arrests were made, but according to the APD, there is still an active investigation by the police and the Municipal Prosecutor’s Office.
Hey, it’s summertime in Alaska. Things happen, right?
