Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o's interview with Katie Couric gets the Autotune treatment. If she did all of her interviews this way, maybe her ratings might get a boost.
I know, I know, we’ve all been there…a night out at a bar, you get in a fight, and the cops drag you out kicking and screaming, then you crap yourself in the back of a squad car.
That’s what happened to actor Jason London, known for his role in the ’90s classic “Dazed & Confused” and little else since then.
Police in Scottsdale, AZ say the fight started when London allegedly sneezed on a fellow patron and refused to apologize, instead punching the man in the face. The two men were escorted from the bar, but the Arizona Republic reports that London was extremely intoxicated and was belligerent with firefighters who were trying to treat him.
After being placed in a police car, TMZ says the actor began shouting homophobic slurs at the cops, and then, um, soiled himself.
London took to his Twitter account to deny the reports, saying, ”I got jumped by three 250 pound bouncers. They knocked me out and beat me for several minutes.” He later finished with “I hate Arizona.”
I’m guessing Arizona’s not too crazy about you either, Jason.
Justin Bieber continues to add to his tattoo collection. His latest ink? Roman numerals on his collarbone.
The numerals appear to spell out his mother Pattie Mallette’s birthday, which is April 2, 1975. The Biebs shared the photo of his latest etching on Instagram, where it is in full display.
In this other shot (shown below), you can see the tattoo under the strap of his wifebeater tank.
We are just glad the Biebs elected to get a tattoo related to the love of his life — his mother — as opposed to getting Selena Gomez‘s name or birthdate tattooed on him in an effort to try and win her back.
That’s a big, huge no-no.
Remember, his pops Jeremy Bieber got his son’s initials (which are also his own, go figure) tattooed on his body last year to celebrate that singer’s 18th birthday!
He’s certainly becoming heavily inked.
Beliebers, what do you think of JB’s latest tat? Is he, like One Direction‘s Harry Styles, going overboard with the tattoo work?

In Taco Bell’s 2013 Super Bowl commercial we meet Bernie Goldblatt, an older gentlemen who is being wished good night by an aid at the Glencobrooke Retirement Home. Or so she thinks he is going to sleep. In fact, Bernie’s night is just beginning.
He sneaks out of the home and is picked up be his equally grey-haired compadres in a car. As the Spanish version of the .Fun smash hit ‘We Are Young’ plays, the seniors start to go wild.
First they invade a neighbor’s pool for a quick dip. Then the pranksters set off firecrackers. There’s no need for ID when they hit the club, but they still rock harder than all the revelers a quarter their age.
Next it’s tattoos and Taco Bell. “Live Mas,” Taco Bell encourages as the gang from the greatest generation returns home after their crazy night.

While it isn’t too far of a stretch to believe that Shreveport would rank high on the list of most Bible-Minded Cities, but to rank #2?!?!?! Congratulations, Shreveport — to be known for a good thing is nice to see.
The Barna Group and The American Bible Society interviewed 42,855 interviews across the USA to find out how many people and what level of Bible exploration, the 96 sampled, place in their communities.
So you may be asking, Bible-Minded, what does that mean exactly: Barna defined it as such:
People who said that they read their Bible in a typical week while also strongly noting their belief that the book is accurate in the sentiments it teaches qualify as “Bible-minded.” So, the measure is two-fold; it involves a mixture of action and adherence.
Of the areas that revere the Bible most, you are probably not surprised, but areas around the South some out on top. (They are also some of the most economically healthy areas of the USA, as well). According to Barna, the following areas qualify as at least half Bible-Minded:
- Knoxville, Tenn. (52% of the population)
- Shreveport, La. (52%), Chattanooga, Tenn. (52%)
- Birmingham, Ala. (50%)
- Jackson, Miss. (50%)
As you look at the list, you will also notice the Least Bible-Minded cities, which tend to be in the North East, specifically the New England areas (they also tend to be less economically healthy):
- Providence, RI (9%)
- Albany, NY (10%)
- Burlington, VT (16%)
- Portland, ME (16%)
- Hartford, CT (16%)
- Boston, MA (16%)

Just when you thought ‘Call Me Maybe‘ was gone forever, it comes back again, like a terrible, terrible ex you hate, but you only live four blocks apart so what are you going to do? This time a group of guys from Denmark are playing it on bottles. Of course they are. It kind of reminds us of those pan flute subway busker guys, but less depressing. Enjoy!Source: TheFW
Break up with Chris Brown, land on the cover of a magazine. If you ask us, Brown’s former girlfriend Karrueche Tran came out of this whole thing way ahead.
When asked about the intense media scrutiny surrounding her love life, Tran (who’s topless but wearing flesh-colored panties on the cover) admitted it was rough.
“I try my best to just ignore the negativity, which is hard for me because it’s a lot to deal with,” she said. “But I try to keep a positive mind and stay strong and not put energy into it.”
“The most challenging part about the attention was the negativity and the misconception from some people. People only see you in blogs and they think they know everything about your life,” she continued, adding that just because it’s in print doesn’t mean it’s true.
Anyway, Tran says that she and Brown went their separate ways last fall when he told her he would “rather be single, allowing us to both be happy in our lives.” Despite that being a giant lie (he quickly hooked up once again with his former girlfriend Rihanna), Tran holds no grudges against her ex.
“Honestly, all I want is happiness. There was a lot of dysfunction and negativity. I just want to be happy,” she said. “I hope people can learn from my story. I want to be remembered as someone who remained positive through such a negative situation.”
Tran even concluded her interview with a little bit of girl power: “I’ve learned to find happiness within myself. I’ve also built a strong core. The past year was a big growing up process for me … My eyes were opened to a lot of things.” Which is better than having them swollen shut. Again, she wins.
Despite the breakup, Tran is still the head of Brown’s clothing line The-Kill, which is a unisex collection in all black-and-white that sounds like a real winner (ahem). The line will be a combination of their collective “thought and creativity.”
In other words, she’ll be doing most of the heavy lifting.Source: StarCrush
Frank Ocean Wants to Press Charges Against Chris Brown, Who Insists He's Being Crucified Like Some Other Famous Dude [PHOTOS]
(We know, say that five times fast.)
However, the charges likely won’t be as severe as the ‘channelORANGE’ singer would like.
Complex reports that Brown, who allegedly punched Ocean in the brawl, will not be charged with a hate crime, which is what a lot of outlets initially speculated since Ocean is openly bisexual.
Without the added severity of a hate crime, which is a felony, Brown, if charged, would get misdemeanor battery. A misdemeanor usually doesn’t involve an arrest, which may bode a bit better for Breezy in terms of his probation — he’s only a little over two years in on his five years for his assault on then (and possibly current) girlfriend Rihanna.
TheWrap explained that if he were to be arrested, a report would be sent to the court from Brown’s probation officer, so this is a pretty good situation for Brown so far considering the circumstances.
Complex also reports that Ocean was hospitalized for a few minor scratches.
While Brown has yet to issue any sort of official comment on the fight, he did post the above photo to Instagram with a telling caption: “Working on my album. Not working on negativity. Focus on feeding ya family. Bulls— will forever be in the shadows.”
Or in the parking lot. Whatever.
Most entertaining? Brown, who takes solace in visual art, painted Jesus on the cross, writing, “Painting the way I feel today. Focus on what matters!”
We’re not sure Brown is entirely familiar with how Jesus felt. He supposedly died for the sins of people on Earth and was reviled by nonbelievers for a few reasons, but none of them involved Twitter wars, beating his ex or calling his followers fat.
In this case, what matters appears to be abs. Breezy’s Jesus is ripped, so you could probably bounce a quarter off of whichever cheek he turns. Here’s hoping Brown learns to do the same.
UPDATE: A witness now tells TMZ that Brown struck Ocean first after Ocean refused to shake his hand. The brawl escalated to include both of their entourages and they pretty much destroyed the lobby of the studio and terrified the staff. A receptionist called 911 and Brown left. Apparently the parking situation is also a serious bone of contention between artists, as it represents who’s at the top of their game, and Brown was pissed that Ocean dissed him by taking the prime spot.Instagram Source: StarCrush
We aren’t exactly morning people, but if there’s one thing that will get us up and at full attention it’s hot cheerleaders. Wearing booty shorts. In the 99X studio. Yep.
The group is looking to do good with a youth initiative and follow-up stop at Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Shreveport. However, all it took was hearing the word “cheerleader” in an announcement and the red-blooded male population of the building abandoned their offices and rushed to gawk at the girls.

Now, here’s a bunch of pictures we took of The Sideline Dolls.
In a recent interview, Clarkson revealed some of her initial ideas for the ceremony. “We’re actually thinking the fall this year. We’re thinking outside,” she said. “We are trying to make it small, but it’s hard. I literally had a breakdown two weeks ago about the wedding list.”
Clarkson doesn’t have to worry about the entertainment for her wedding, though. Country star and good pal Blake Shelton has offered himself up for the task. “Blake is going to play at our reception,” she spilled. “We’re very excited.”
Although the pop star is used to having all eyes on her on stage and on the small screen, she admitted she’s nervous about being the center of attention at her wedding. “I’m actually terrified at everyone watching me walk down the aisle,” Clarkson said. “That’s like the worst thing ever.”
Although an official date has yet to be set, Clarkson’s nuptials are sure to be one of the biggest celebrity weddings of the year. That’s not all she has to celebrate, though. The singer’s No. 1 single ‘Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)’ is nominated for four Grammy awards this year.

Christina Langston, a freshman at centenary College in Shreveport, Louisiana is moving to the Hollywood round of American Idol.
“Ever since I was young, I have dreamed of the day that I would be able to perform in front of a large crowd with cheering fans that I could call my own,” said Langston. “There I was—one girl up against thousands of contestants with the same purpose—receiving a golden ticket. Singing to the four celebrity judges, I knew that this was my chance to show both them and America that I am the next American Idol.”
Langston arrived at Centenary College in the fall of 2012 and has made herself valuable while singing alto in the Choir. She has performed in the school’s traditional Rhapsody in View performance and tours throughout Texas.
Langston’s greatest ambition is continuing her singing career and that’s what brought her to Centenary College.
“I did not want to give up on my singing career, and what better way to continue it than being a part of the Centenary College Choir—America’s Singing Ambassadors. The Choir has further given me the opportunity to travel and share my voice along with the other amazing singers in choir. I have also appreciated the great amount of support I have received from Dr. David Rowe, Dr. David Hobson, and many other staff members here at Centenary.”
Listen to 710 KEEL’s Angela Thomas interview Christina Langston’s father, David Langston, HERE.
Watch Christina Langston compete in the Hollywood rounds of American Idol on Fox 33 Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. central.
Not their boyfriends, of course.
Cats have an instinct to clean. They spend up to 15 percent of their day grooming themselves. So maybe it’s not that weird to expect a cat to do the same for a nearby human. Most of us shower merely once a day—we must be plain filthy in their eyes.

What better way to get over an ex than writing a song about it!
Justin Bieber opened up to Billboard about his failed romance with Selena Gomez and told the magazine that he’s been leaning on friends and channeling his emotions into his music.
“I’m not in the happiest place that I’ve ever been,” he tells Billboard. “I’m trying to get through what I’m going through … I have my really close friends to cheer me up and keep me going.”
As for pesky rumors, Bieber says “People say I call Selena every day and she won’t pick up the phone or I’m chasing her down, and these are all fake stories. I don’t go on blogs or anything like that. I hear things. People tell me if something happens on the Internet. It gets back to me, definitely.”
He later told the magazine that he’s written a ballad entitled “Nothing Like Us,” which contains the lyrics, ”Nothing can ever, ever replace you/Nothing can make me feel like you do” and “Gave you everything/Everything I had to give/Girl, why would you push me away?”
Bieber then went on to say, ”At the end of the day, there’s nothing like us, you know? That’s just it. It is what it is. People are going to relate to that.”
Here’s audio of the song, which will appear on his forthcoming “Believe Acoustic” album.
