Bill Nye Reads Mean Tweets; Internet Explodes

Bill Nye

Bill Nye (“The Science Guy”) is typically a beloved figure, right? He’s a childhood staple and he was even on Dancing with the Stars. There’s nothing much to hate, right?

WRONG. Some damn ornery Tweeters (?) took to Twitter to unleash their steam of hate upon Bill Nye. I honestly didn’t think anyone could NOT like Bill Nye, but these tweets prove me wrong. So I guess consider this a #ThrowBackSunday (which isn’t a real thing, but I don’t give an eff), because here’s everyone’s favorite de facto science teacher reading mean tweets about himself. And yeah, it’s a little unnerving to hear Bill Nye saying “The F Word”, even if it is bleeped out. BILL! BILL! BILL! BILL!

Okay, be honest: how many of you sitting in science class saw the TV cart wheeled out and thought, “HELL YEAH, BILL!!”?

Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Funeral Had Some MAJOR Drama

bobbi-kristina-brown

Bobbi Kristina Brown had a pretty sad life, overall. Yeah, she had some bright moments: she was Whitney Houston‘s pride and joy, and yet, poor girl wound up dying at 22, in a similar way her mom died. Her death was fraught with controversy, and I can only hope she’s now resting peacefully.

Unfortunately, her funeral was anything but peaceful. In fact, Bobbi Kirstina’s funeral had some MAJOR drama, courtesy of her aunt. From TMZ:

Bobbi Kristina’s funeral was interrupted Saturday morning by an outburst from Leolah Brown, Bobbi’s aunt, who was swiftly removed from the church with the help of Tyler Perry.

An eyewitness tells TMZ, Pat Houston [aunt], was getting ready to speak when Leolah began screaming, “Pat you know you are wrong for this!”

We’re told security descended on Leolah and escorted her out. Tyler Perry followed to help diffuse the situation.

Leolah spoke with photogs outside of the service and made one thing clear … she says Pat Houston will be haunted by the ghost of Whitney.

Okay, first of all, I never thought I’d say this, but thank you, Tyler Perry.

Secondly, this aunt is a serious jerk. Yeah, I’m gonna go there, Imma call her a jerk, because who else would interrupt their niece’s funeral service like that? True, Pat Houston has been accused of using Bobbi’s funeral costs to funnel donations into her own account, but still,  can you not just hold your chill for the duration of the service?

Then again, I can’t imagine what this family is going through. So maybe I’m the jerk. I don’t know. What do you think?

Miley’s New MAC Ad: Hell Yes Or God No?

miley cyrus MAC viva glam

Miley Cyrus stopped making out with her girlfriend long enough to debut a new ad with MAC Cosmetics for their Viva Glam collection (above). MAC posted the ad on Facebook along with this enthusiastic description:

Miley Cyrus is BACK with a BAM! Our iconic VIVA GLAM spokesperson has two new surefire hits: a super-sexy bright orange Lipstick and coordinating Lipglass with sparkling pearl shimmer. Get the GLAM online and in stores starting in September 2015.

Less enthusiastic are many of the Facebook comments. Feast your eyes on such gems as:

What a put down for my favorite…. To use Miley Cyrus as a spokesman for their products… I am soooo disappointed!

And:

Glam? Really? I don’t think that word describes Miley Cyrus AT ALL!

And:

U can’t put glam and her in the same sentence it’s just wrong

And even:

I love that MAC does this campaign, and I understand the need for young, relevant celebrities, but couldn’t you have at least made her wear something non-skanky? She’s gotten sooo bad she’s a disgrace to her generation. It’s sad really, she was a talented girl who will now only ever be known as a nasty, tongue-happy skank-wad.

“Tongue-happy skank-wad” is a new one for me. Never heard that one before. Points for creativity!

So, ladies and gents, what do you think: is this a “hell yes” or a “God no”?

Wrestler “Rowdy” Roddy Piper Dead At 61

Roddy-Piper

WWE legend “Rowdy” Roddy Piper is dead at the age of sixty-one. Damn, sixty seems too young to die. My dad’s 70 and he’s still kicking it. (Yeah, he had me later in life). Anyway, the wrestler/actor (he had a role in John Carpenter’s They Live, among other sci-fi/horror films) died of an apparent heart attack at his home in Hollywood. Here’s what his agent reported, via Variety:

Piper’s agent Jay Schacter confirmed the news, first reported by TMZ, to Variety. “Rod passed peacefully in his sleep last night,” Schacter said in an email. “I am shocked and beyond devastated.”

Buddy and fellow wrestler Hulk Hogan sent out a tweet:

The main players in the WWE family (which Hulk Hogan is no longer a part of) tweeted their condolences as well.

Piper’s Facebook page simply reads:

“Our family is saddened by the sudden passing of our father and beloved husband, Roderick Toombs aka Rowdy Roddy Piper. Please respect our family’s privacy during this difficult period.”

Understood. Rest in peace, Mr. Piper.

Gwyneth Paltrow Releases Her Most Ridiculous Goop Products Yet

gwyneth-paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow likes to think she’s down with the kids, but she’s so disconnected from real life that I’m kinda dumbfounded that no one has knocked her back into reality yet. Alas, Gwyn is still living in a dream world and likes to flaunt the fact that she’s “friends” with actual hip hop stars like Beyonce and Jay-Z and has a real affinity for rap. How better to pay homage to that ignorance love than to start selling hideous clutch purses with the names of rappers on the front of them?

gwyneth

I wouldn’t use one of those bags if you paid me, but guess what – you have to pay HER for them. Unfortunately, she’s not asking $5 for them, but in fact, they cost $1695 each, likely because they’re “exclusive” to Goop. Are you fucking kidding me? What is wrong with this woman?

Don’t answer that – we haven’t got all day.

Jennifer Lawrence Went On Vacation With Amy Schumer & Life Is Good

I know Taylor Swift thinks she has this whole “celebrity friendship” thing down pat, but sorry, there’s a new celeb BFF-ship in town and it’s SO MUCH BETTER. Amy Schumer is fucking hilarious, and so is Jennifer Lawrence. Put them together, and what do you get? Uh, only the most random and amazing combo ever. They went on vacation together recently, and a photo Amy posted to her Instagram page made the Internet go crazy. Why wouldn’t it?

Jennifer actually tried hanging out with Taylor once time (there were pics of her leaving Taylor’s apartment a couple of months back), but it seems like JLaw has sense and couldn’t hang, so she rocked over to Amy’s place, and that’s a much better match.

Love this combo, love this friendship. A+

Kylie Jenner Is Promoting “Natural” Butt Enhancing Cream

kylie jenner

Kylie Jenner is a Kardashian at heart, so it’s no surprise that she’ll shill anything a company wants to pay her for on her social media channels. Take PureLeef, a new “natural” butt-enhancing product line to “help women safely enhance, slim and shape their bodies”. Kylie posted about it on her advertising page Instagram this week and I don’t know if I’ve ever laughed so hard. Because, yes, Kylie’s suddenly massive tits and ass are the results of cream, and not the family’s personal plastic surgeon. I mean, come on!

Here’s the caption to the above photo, because LOL to this whole thing:

I love sharing my beauty secrets with you guys and this is a favorite! @PureLeef offers products with All Natural ingredients (which is important to me) to help maintain & accentuate your curves! @PureLeef’s butt enhancement cream & Breast plumping lotion stimulate fat cells in the target areas. I started seeing results after only a month of consistent use. Love their products ???? Visit www.pureleef.com #curvesonfleek

WHO ACTUALLY BUYS THIS SHIT? Both physically with money and metaphorically as in believing what comes out of Kylie’s mouth? She’s never used this shit in her life.

No, girl. Just no. Also, you are still 17 for another 10 days. Please slow your roll with the ass shots.
