The curious case of the swimmers, the robbery, and the Olympics

Not everything is going according to plan in Brazil with the Olympics, and the hosts in Rio can’t be happy about it. And water going green in the official pools is a minor problem compared to the alleged robbery of four US swimmers a few days ago. Brazilian police have had problems finding any evidence the robbery happened and found certain discrepancies while investigating the matter. Authorities have gone so far as to prevent three of the four athletes that were allegedly robbed from exiting the country. More →

Prince Died

One video and the story behind it tell you everything you need to know about Prince

One video and the story behind it tell you everything you need to know about Prince

By on April 22, 2016 at 9:18 AM.

Prince was, in a phrase, one of a kind. Rarely does such an eccentric and at times egotistical star actually posses the talent to back up his or her persona, but Prince was a rarity if nothing else. He was one of the most outlandish personalities of his time, and he did have the talent to back it up. He had so much talent that practically all of the greats in the industry adored and respected him despite his eccentricities. Eric Clapton was once asked in an interview what it felt like to be the best guitarist in the world, and his answer was perfect: “I don’t know. Ask Prince.”

Sadly, millennials and other young generations might not know much about Prince beyond the hilarious impersonation of him that was featured on Dave Chapelle’s old show. So we dug up one video that might just tell you everything you need to know. More →

Watch Ashton Kutcher and Jimmy Kimmel compare their Uber pasenger ratings

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday, A-list celeb Ashton Kutcher and Jimmy Kimmel decided to check their respective Uber ratings live on the air. While passenger ratings on Uber used to be a closely guarded secret that were only accessible via various hacks and work-arounds, the ridesharing company this past September finally made such information easily accessible.

Kutcher obviously didn’t show up to talk about Uber, but as one of the company’s early investors, it’s not at all surprising that the topic veered in that direction.

How Gawker tricked Donald Trump into tweeting a quote from fascist dictator Mussolini

On Sunday morning, the political world was abuzz following a curious and somewhat controversial retweet sent out from Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s official Twitter account. The tweet in question read, “It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep.”

Seems innocent enough, but Twitter users were quick to note that the quote was originally said by Benito Mussolini, the fascist Italian dictator.

Kanye West Twitter Rant

Kanye West is on another epic Twitter rant, says his album will “never be on Apple”

Kanye West is on another epic Twitter rant, says his album will “never be on Apple”

Kanye West is nothing if not entertaining. Whether you’re quick to label Yeezy a genius or call him insane (or an insane genius), most everyone can agree that ‘boring’ is an adjective no one has ever used to describe Kanye West.

Over the weekend, West appeared on Saturday Night Live but still found time to tear it up on Twitter, firing off a barrage of bizarre, hilarious, and at times nonsensical tweets. Among no shortage of comedic gems was the assertion that he’s $53 million in debt along with pleas to both Mark Zuckerberg and Larry Page to invest $1 billion in his ideas. Why? Because Kanye is the self-proclaimed Walt Disney of this generation and he doesn’t have enough resources to create what he’s capable of. Just Kanye being Kanye, I suppose.
