Will Ferrell smashed a cheerleader in the face with a basketball

will ferrell

Oh, Will Ferrell, that rapscallion! He’s always up to something, isn’t he? He showed up during intermission at the Los Angeles Lakers vs. New Orleans Pelicans game at the Smoothie King Center (LOL IS THAT A REAL PLACE???) to take a half-court shot, but instead he actually smashed one of the cheerleaders in the face with the ball. Oopsies!

Of course, this was all planned and no one was hurt – it was actually a scene for his new movie, Daddy’s Home. Obviously. After the “incident”, security dragged him out and that was it, fade to black. Sounds like a fun evening out, I guess?

Nicki Minaj is a great actress

nicki minaj

Some of you may not know or remember this, but before Nicki Minaj became one of the biggest female rappers in history, she was just Onika Maraj, a wannabe child actress in New York City who attended theatre school to prep her for life in the bigtime. Someone actually dug up a clip from this period, showing Nicki rehearsing for a production and getting really, really into it. Perhaps too into it. And it’s hilarious.

Glad to see she hasn’t really changed much from her early days. Stay true, girl.

Mariah Carey better start wishing for more at Christmas

mariah carey

I grew up absolutely idolizing Mariah Carey. I had every single album on cassette, I knew every word to ever song, I loved her. She was an amazing singer and there was no one else like her. Then she divorced Tommy Mottola and started exploring more than straight pop. I was on board! ‘Shake It Off’ and ‘We Belong Together’ are two of the most amazing songs ever.

However, they still don’t compare to her earlier work – especially ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’. Everyone knows and loves that song. Seriously, everyone in the world, even if they hate Christmas or don’t celebrate Christmas or whatever. The song is an earworm and it’s amazing. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Mariah’s live performance of the beloved track on the televised lighting of the tree at Rockefeller Center.

I won’t spoil you too much, but she basically missed every single high note, was all over the place pitch-wise and it was just a hot mess. It wasn’t her worst live performance by far, but oh man, it wasn’t good. Here ya go:

There was also apparently a lot of drama surrounding this performance because Mariah was actually due to pre-tape her performance but turned up three hours late since she was on the phone to her divorce attorney for a long ass time, so network execs sent her home and she eventually decided to wing it and do it live. Props for that, but I can see why they wanted to pre-tape…

Lea Michele gets ignored by Jessica Lange on the red carpet

LOL, this is just sweet, sweet brilliance. At the premiere of American Horror Story: Freak Show premiere, Lea Michele was posing and cheesing like she was the star of the damn show (even though she’s not even on it). However, she got knocked down a few pegs when queen Jessica Lange walked by and completely ignored her ass when she tried to say hi.

Check it out starting at the one minute mark:

Lea is such a try-hard, and while some may say it was a bitch move on Jessica’s part, I say:

Justin Bieber embarrassed himself on a skateboard

Justin Bieber seems to be one of those people who’s so up his own ass that he automatically assumes he’s a genius at anything he puts his hand to. Case in point: skateboarding. This idiot can barely stay on the board, let alone do any tricks on it, but he still felt confident enough to go to the legendary Venice Skate Park in California to show off his “skills” to the masses. He didn’t even seem to care when he got laughed at for failing a simple trick about fifteen times… but ignorance is bliss, I suppose.

I think it’s hilarious that he got so hyped after FINALLY landing one that he had to rip his shirt off immediately. Please, spare us.

‘Frozen’ meets ’50 Shades of Grey’ and I’m so over it

frozen

Guys, 50 Shades of Grey is going to suck so, so bad. Also, Frozen wasn’t all that good and I have no idea why people are going insane over it. It was alright, but I’ve certainly seen better Disney movies and that ‘Let It Go’ song is the bane of my existence. So of course some “fan” with too much time on their hands had to make a mash-up of the two and I’m kinda disgusted.

Did we really need to turn a children’s movie into an adult book/film parody? Are some things not just better off left alone?

I mean, guys… no. Just no.
