It’s that time of week again folks! Yes, it’s time for me to give you the digital rundown of the week’s greatest successes and hot messes of the entertainment world. This is gonna be good, trust me.
Following the precedent set by the sports world last week, things just keep getting more ridiculous. By “ridiculous” I mean Manti Te’o found out that he’s been Catfish-ed. The 21-year-old Notre Dame linebacker’s heartwarming story about losing his grandmother and girlfriend all within a day was apparently an elaborate hoax played on him by a male friend of a friend of his on Facebook.
The story just keeps getting messier as he denies that he didn’t know that the woman wasn’t real and he genuinely loved her. Damn man… you should have called Nev.
Aries Spears (of MadTV fame) was apparently holding some real deep dislike in his heart for 2Chainz. When asked about the current state of hip hop, the flood gates opened with Spears saying “Get some better rhymes 2 Chainz.” He also thinks the rapper’s lyricism is horrid. No matter to Mr. Chainz though, because he’s been nominated for several Grammys this year, including Best Rap Album. I blame the establishment. Why isn’t Kanye mad at this mess?
Amber Rose accepted ice cream from a TMZ pap in exchange for talking about her relationship with baby daddy, Wiz Kalifah. She walked up to the camera like a zoo animal being tempted with forbidden food and called Wiz her husband. No one knows if they’ve eloped, but it seems like she sold him out for a cold cone of TMNT. I don’t know if that’s sad or funny. She looked good though.
You know who else looked good? It was Selena Gomez at the InStyle Golden Globes After party. She might have even been a teeny bit drunk. There’s some Youtube footage of her on the red carpet giving an interview, speech ever so slightly slurred. I was drunk off the sparkle of her Versace dress. Who cares how drunk you are as long as you don’t look like it? ( Yes we are looking at you, Ke$ha…even if you’re not drunk, you look like it.)
You know folks on Twitter are crazy, right? Well Justin Bieber has had his share of controversy this month, starting with being photographed holding something that looked like a joint outside a party shortly after New Year’s. Here’s the crazy part—lots of internet trolls decided to band together for a hoax using the hashtags #cutforbieber and #cuttingforbieber, which started trending on Twitter last week, for pictures of bloody arms that had endured the form of self-harm known as cutting. It was rumored to be in solidarity for JB’s right to puff and give. There is no weed in the world that good, I’m just saying.
Well, there you have it folks—some of the best headlines to grace the web. Tune in next week for more and be sure to keep checking Mega City VIP, the best hip-hop website for your daily fix!
