Amber Rose Responds To Kanye’s Coachella Dis

We never understand it when celebrity couples start drama in public. Don’t they remember all that bizarre, rich-person stuff the other person knows about them? We’ve all seen Eyes Wide Shut, right? Unfortunately, Kanye West’s Amber Rose Coachella dis didn’t follow the laws of relationship decorum, so the rapper’s ex is out to talk a little trash. Just as a little background: at the music festival last month, Kanye allegedly changed the lyrics to his song “Stronger” from “I’ll do anything for a blonde dyke” to “I did anything for that blonde dyke.” Amber Rose just so happens to be his bisexual blond ex, ergo, yikes.

We wouldn’t be surprised to hear that Kanye momentarily forgot Amber was actually at Coachella, and was under the impression that only he could hear the beautiful music in his mind. “It’s just unfortunate that he said that in the song ’cause that’s not the lyrics,” Amber Rose’s King Magazine interview says about the incident now. “I can say whatever I want about him. I can write a book or do whatever but I choose to take the high road. It’s just unfortunate he has to constantly say s–t.” Despite the on-going drama, Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa are still going strong. Said soon-to-be reality star, “When I was with my ex [West], I didn’t have a voice. I was there and I was new to the fame. I didn’t understand everything. Now I get everything. With me and Wiz, we show our love to the world.” We undersand it if Amber is trying to come out ahead as the classier party, but if not: please, please, please write the book on Kanye.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Booted From Universal Studios Singapore Opening

Did he even still want to go to an amusement park anyway? E! News reports that Arnold Schwarzenegger was disinvited to the opening of a Universal Studios in Singapore on May 28th, where he was scheduled to appear alongside Jet Li. As you probably guessed, the drama stems from the recently revelation of the Schwarzenegger’s love child with a housekeeper fourteen years ago, which he kept a secret from his wife Maria Shriver.

“With all the complications surrounding him, they decided to dump him,” says their source, claiming that Paula Abdul among others have agreed to attend to attend the opening, which will feature the world’s tallest dueling rollercoaster. With that bit of fun now no longer an option, it looks like Arnold will have to cry himself to sleep on a bed made of gold, wiping away his tears with thousand dollar bills.

Katy Perry’s Concert Rider Forbids Carnations, Talking To Katy Perry

Katy Perry has always taken pains to portray herself as a sweet glittery kitten of a lady, but Katy Perry’s concert rider, posted by The Smoking Gun, reveals the hidden diva lurking beneath all that pancake makeup. First starters, Perry’s dressing rooms all require cream-colored egg chairs (one with a footstool) and, of course, mountains of fresh flowers. “White and purple hydrangeas, pink & white roses and peonies,” are preferred, but Katy will reluctantly deal with a “selection of seasonal white flowers to include white orchids” if the 24-hour florist happens to have run dry. But if you bring Katy carnations, so help her god… “ABSOLUTELY NO CARNATIONS.” They are a filler flower! Why don’t you just make flowers out of used toilet paper and old paper bags if you’re going to sink that low? Seriously!

The entire rider is worth reading, but the section on Perry’s chauffeur stipulations are particularly stringent: “The driver will not start a conversation w/ the client, ” “Do not ask for autographs or pictures, and especially not while driving!,””Do not stair(sic) at the backseat thru the rearview mirror,” and our personal favorite “”The driver will never assume. Always ask if in doubt.” Assume what? That is he or she is acting sufficiently like a robot that happens to driving Katy Perry’s limo? Actually, Katy used to have a limo-driving robot at one point. Remember the end of Terminator? Yup, that’s how a diva does it.

OH YEAH: The 10 Greatest Macho Man Slim Jim Commercials

We all lost a tiny piece of our 90s hearts today with the news that “Macho Man” Randy Savage died in a car crash after suffering a heart attack behind the wheel.

But what are we gonna do, sit here and mope? For Randy Savage? The Randy Savage I know (from The WWF and Slim Jim ads and Spider-Man cameos) would see us moping, burst through seven walls, yell “untimely death gotcha DOWN?” and explode the universe with one bite of beefy spicy taste. Then some old woman in funeral garb would be like “Do you mind?” and he’d take another bite and send her tornadoing into an electric fence.

In honor of the departed, here is a 90s treasure trove of the 10 Greatest Macho Man Slim Jim Commercials Of All Time. I’m not gonna lie – I did get a little choked up:

A Few Questions We Had While Watching The Trailer For NBCs New Series Smash

This is the trailer for new television show called Smash, which will be airing on NBC this coming fall and executived produced by Steven Spielberg of Animaniacs fame. It stars Katherine McPhee as a down and out actress looking for her big break.

Right off the bat, I love it. Then again, I am a sucker for anything that remotely resembles the Oscar-winning film Dreamgirls, even though basically every person in this trailer is white, making it more of a Super White Dreamgirls or Creamgirls. Judging by the trailer, it is mmmmmmmmexaaaactly my kind of programming. But then again, I have the same tastes as a 98-year-old sassy gay black ghost.

And yet even with my penchant for over-the-top musical spectacles, I still had so many questions during and after this “extended preview.” Questions such as:

First Glimpse Of Tom Hardy As Villain Bane From The Dark Knight Rises

Let the creepiness begin! Warner Bros. has released the first The Dark Knight Rises‘ Tom Hardy Bane photo, a glimpse at the terrifying masked villain that looks like he’ll do justice to the gritty, unsettling feel Heath Ledger established as The Joker in The Dark Knight. As if this wasn’t spooky enough, the Dark Knight Rises website is equally chilling: pitch black, with just an eerie soundtrack of Nazi-esque chanting. We don’t know about you, but we are dying to see how sunny, girl-next-door Anne Hathaway’s Selina Kyle is going to stack up against all this scariness. The woman was in The Princess Diaries, for Alfred’s sake!

“Macho Man” Randy Savage, 58, Dies In Car Accident After Heart Attack

Randy Poffo, better known as legendary wrestler “Macho Man” Randy Savage, died while driving earlier this morning, having lost control of his Jeep Wrangler during a heart attack. Savage’s wife Lynn—who married him just over a year ago—was also in the car, but reportedly only received minor injuries. Savage wrestled professionally for over 30 years, making his debut as The Spider-Fiend in 1973 before joining the WWF as Savage in 1985. Randy left for the WCW in 1994, having won two championship s and the title of King Of The Ring in 1987. Savage continued to wrestle until retiring in late 2004.

On top of his wrestling career, Savage was known for his career as a Slim Jim pitchman and numerous voice and live-action acting roles, the most famous arguably being wrestler Bonesaw McGraw in 2002’s Spider-Man. In 2003 he released the rap album Be A Man. Hear the title track and check out classic clips of Macho Man after the jump.

Believe It Or Not, Nene Leakes Has A Sense Of Humor

Of all people from whom you would never expect a sense of humor, semi-famous professional Real Housewife of Atlanta Nene Leakes tops the list. But Ellen Degeneres has somehow shaken some sense into the 7’4″ terrifying Celebrity Apprentice dropout, and coaxed her into appearing in a funny sketch in which she’s actually funny, displaying an unexpected load of self-parody.

Next up: Camille Grammer doing kabuki theater for Funny Or Die? Anything is possible!
