Harrison Ford injured in a plane crash

Harrison Ford is an aviation enthusiast and has been for years – he even has 11 of his own small planes that he flies in his space time. Unfortunately, things went awry earlier today when he crashed into a golf course just outside Los Angeles and was rushed to a local hospital.

From NBC News:

The actor, who was conscious and breathing when rescue crews reached him, was stabilized and taken to a hospital, where he was in fair to moderate condition, authorities said. Sources said he sustained cuts to his head. There was no word on other injuries or what caused the plane to crash about 2:20 p.m. (5:20 p.m. ET). It appeared he was flying solo.

“We are very thankful that the passenger had [only] very moderate injuries,” Los Angeles Assistant Fire Chief Patrick Butler said.

The plane clipped some tree branches and crashed on the golf course shortly after takeoff from Santa Monica Airport, Butler said. An eyewitness, Howard Tabe, an employee at Penmar Golf Course, said he put a blanket under Ford’s hip.

“There was blood all over his face,” Tabe said. “Two very fine doctors were treating him, taking good care of him.”

Mike Bonin, a Los Angeles City Council member, agreed, telling NBC Los Angeles: “Thank God that this incident happened on a golf course where there is a relatively open space.”

He’s pretty lucky, as the source pointed out, that he landed in an area with open space and that he survived with so few serious injuries. Of course, Harrison Ford isn’t an idiot and no doubt knows the danger of flying small aircraft, so I assume he’ll continue flying after his recovery since it’s something he enjoys so much. Tough break, though – especially considering he was injured on a movie set just last summer!

Here’s a picture of the plane following the crash:

Kelly Clarkson will not be fat shamed

kelly clarkson

Kelly Clarkson is cute, right? She’s not the most amazing pop star there is, but she’s a solid one with really catchy songs, a great voice and a not completely obnoxious personality. So what’s not to like? Well, some people seem to have an issue with the fact that she’s not a stick figure. And those people are assholes.

In this case, we’re talking about Katie Hopkins, who, if you’re not from the UK, you probably won’t know. She’s basically a loud mouth who says really awful and offensive things about everyone just to rile people up and it totally works. I don’t really agree with most of what she says, but I don’t think she does, either. Her appearance on Celebrity Big Brother a couple months ago kind of proved that she has a heart – and she absolutely hated Perez Hilton, so that kinda makes her okay in my books.

Anyhow, when Kelly appeared on The Graham Norton Show late last month, Katie took to Twitter to make fun of her weight, saying the following:

  • “Jesus, what happened to Kelly Clarkson? Did she eat all of her backing singers? Happily I have wide-screen. #grahamnorton.”

Which she then followed up just yesterday with…

  • “Look chubsters, Kelly Clarkson had a baby a year ago. That is no longer baby weight. That is carrot cake weight. Get over yourselves.”

Absolutely ridiculous and quite mean, but Kelly isn’t letting it get to her. She stopped by Heat Magazine this week and wasn’t all that concerned with Katie’s comments, especially since she doesn’t even know who the hell she is.

“I don’t have a clue what you’re talking about. Someone tweeted something about me?” After explaining what Katie had written (and who the hell she was) Kelly laughed: “Oh, and she’s tweeted something nasty about me? That’s because she doesn’t know me. I’m awesome! It doesn’t bother me. It’s a free world. Say what you will.”

“I’ve just never cared what people think,” she tells us. “It’s more if I’m happy and I’m confident and feeling good, that’s always been my thing. And more so now, since having a family – I don’t seek out any other acceptance.”

Aw, bless her heart. I think Kelly is great – and I agree, I’m sure she’s awesome!

Noel Gallagher isn’t a Taylor Swift fan, then?

noel gallagher taylor swift

Oasis was great back in the day, sure, but now Liam and Noel Gallagher are washed up has-beens who are better known for being total dickheads who talk shit about pretty much everyone on earth (including each other) than they are for their once-great music. Noel has a special brand of asshole-ness, though, and his latest rant was against Taylor Swift and her songwriting abilities.

From Rolling Stone:

What about Taylor Swift? She’s a pop star, but many people praise her talent as a songwriter.
[Laughs] Who says that? Her parents?

Lots of people.
Who’s “people”? Name these people. You’re fucking lying. She seems like a nice girl, but no one has ever said those words, and you fucking know it.

Haha, well, okay, fair enough. Taylor isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. You know who IS golden is Noel’s book? One Direction, of course – more particularly, Harry Styles.

What about One Direction, do you like them?
I know Harry Styles. We’ve hung out a couple of times. They’re lovely lads. But I’ve got to say, I have difficulties with people who don’t write their own songs, who’ve got a team of songwriters who work for your record label.

And there you have it. Noel Gallagher’s thoughts on the world of pop. But wait – I’ll leave you with one bonus quote:

Do you listen to much pop?
No. It’s fucking awful. Modern pop music is bland nonsense. There isn’t even a word yet that’s capable of describing it. If it was a color, it would be beige. Do you know what color beige is?

I do, yeah.
It’s like a milky brown. Not for me.

Cool beans.

Karrueche Tran dumps Chris Brown over baby drama

Yesterday, news broke that surprised exactly no one but horrified us all: Chris Brown is the father of a 9-month-old baby girl with a former model named Nia. Unfortunately, this news wasn’t really welcome to Chris’s on-again, off-again girlfriend Karrueche Tran, who is pissed off because she’s partied with Nia without ever knowing that Nia has a baby with her boyfriend. Um… oops?

In any case, Karrueche ain’t having it and she’s decided to break up with Chris for the 900th time:

Well, for now, anyway. I’m sure they’ll be back together in no time. Of course, she claims this gives her a “clean break” from the shitty relationship, but if she hasn’t done it yet, I doubt this will be the final straw.

Here’s a pic of Nia and Karrueche partying together that TMZ got a hold of, because of course they did:

Kendall and Kylie Jenner are getting their own spinoff series

kendall jenner kylie jenner
Hey guys, awesome news! Just when you thought you couldn’t get enough of the Kardashian clan – after all, there’s only Keeping Up with the Kardsahians, Kim & Kourtney Take New York, Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kourtney & Khloe Take the Hamptons, Whateverthefuck Kardashian Takes My Butt, etc – we’re about to get one more treat sent our way. That’s right: Kendall and Kylie Jenner are getting their own spinoff show.
From Variety

The prospect of a “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” spinoff series focusing on the two teen members of the reality TV clan has been discussed at E! and Ryan Seacrest Prods.

A show insider tells Variety that a spinoff is on the drawing board, although it’s unclear how quickly it might come together. Sources caution that there have been no formal negotiations with the Jenner siblings. A spokesperson for E! says there is no spinoff in the works.

But putting a bigger spotlight on the daughters of Kris Kardashian and Bruce Jenner is an obvious next step for E! as Kendall’s and Kylie’s celebrity and social-media following has grown by leaps and bounds during the past year.

Huh. To be honest, I imagine it’d be slightly less obnoxious than Kim’s blank staring and high-pitched airheadedness that fills all the other Kardashian shows, but not by much. After all, Kylie is shaping herself into Kim Jr, so it doesn’t look good. Kylie’s okay, though (for now). If you can’t beat ‘em, might as well try and find a way to tolerate them.

Jamie Dornan is LOADED because of ‘Fifty Shades’

jamie dornan

We knew the stars of Fifty Shades of Grey had to be making a pretty penny, considering how much the movie is grossing worldwide, but just how rich is the BDSM-lite trilogy making our Christan Grey in real life? Well, a lot – but not actually that much if you think about it.

Apparently Jamie Dornan made a paltry $1.2 million for the first movie, which is great money to us laymen, but absolute shit in movie star money. I guess the studio got a little scared that their main man might pull out, though, because the sequel should earn him a cool $6.9 million – at least according to the Daily Star. A nice increase, for sure, but still not really a decent portion of the pie if you consider how much this franchise is raking in.

Here’s a quote from ~a source~ just for good measure: “Jamie has signed the deal and he’s thrilled, the money on offer was just too good. Jamie has made it known that doubts could be in place if Sam Taylor-Johnson [director] exits, but it’s just a ploy designed to put pressure on James and push her to loosen her grip. The truth is that Jamie plans to do all three, and very much with the backing of his family.”

Huh. Well, there ya go. You know his wife is gettin’ PAID for this bullshit, though.
