HONEY BOO BOO beats GOP CONVENTION in RATINGS

'MERICA!!

What does this say about the GOP Party backing or interest?

The "Toddlers and Tiaras" spin-off "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" hit 3 million viewers the other night, whereas the GOP Debate had less than 1.5 million viewers.


I don't even know HOW to get political on this thing. How much of a joke can Romney, Ryan, and the entire Republican party be that a RED NECK TODDLER SHOW that showcases only the worst of American families out-rated the show?

Wow...this is just... oh man....

Full story chillin' here....

MTV HAS CANCELLED JERSEY SHORE

MTV HAS CANCELLED JERSEY SHORE! DID YOU HEAR ME? MTV HAS CANCELLED JERSEY SHORE.

Thank god, after this sixth season Jersey Shore has been cancelled by the MTV executives, as their audience has delclined by about 19% over the past few years.



While it has lead to spin-offs about Snooki, J-Woww, and other members of the gang, the damn show is over. We can sleep easy at night kids, the monsters are gone. The nightmare is over.

On this day.... we have won.

WOOOOOOO FRICKIN HOO!!!

A little girl's RULES to KEEP HER STUFFIES SAFE during HURRICANE ISAAC

Greg Taylor of Mandeville, LA, said he came to the family home yesterday to feed the fish when he noticed his eight year old daughter Ashley had left some rules for her stuffed animals and toys to keep them safe, and to keep them calm during Hurricane Isaac.

Ashley's rules, posted below, were touching in this hurricane nonsense happening AGAIN in Louisiana, which as we all know was already destroyed by Katrina and is still being rebuilt. It was a little beacon of hope and care, this little girl leaving instructions for the toys she loves.



The CNN iReport that Greg Taylor sent is here and photo credit goes to this report.

I wish them the best during the hurricane, and hope with everything I've got that she comes home to her safe stuffies, and people all over Louisiana and the surrounding areas come home to safe homes, safe families, and safe friends.

LITTLE FACE MITT is the new HILARIOUS TUMBLR

TINY MITT PICS!!! OOH!! OHH!! TINY MITT FACE PICS!!

For this blogger, taking Mitt Romney photos and shrinking his face is what is now popular.



According to the Tumblr linked under the photo,


"Unsettling Pictures of Mitt Romney With a Very Tiny Face" is a new project by Wisconsin humorist Reuben Glaser that involves taking Mitt Romney's face and then making it very tiny. The idea of "Little Face Mitt" is to get people to involuntarily forever see Mitt Romney with a tiny face. Please Submit a Mitt!"

This project is hilarious, and you ALL need to get on it... cuz after this... you will only see this BIG jackass with a TEENYYY face.

PRESIDENT OBAMA BROKE REDDIT

If you don't know, "Reddit.com" is a forum where often celebrities and cool people go and post an "AMA" in which people can "ask me anything." So, redditors go on and post questions and people answer. Today, reddit's dream came true when BARACK OBAMA cam on and posted an AMA.

He addressed a few questions, quite politcally though, many wished that he had answered with a bit more of a relaxed tone and with more detail, but he's running for president again so whatever.



FULL FORUM HERE

Smart of Obama to get there. It is funny though that he CRASHED THE SITE and the server went down before he could even start answering questions, but smart of him to keep the idea going that he's the younger, cooler president who knows about and uses social networking and recognizes it's importance.

It would be interesting to see if Romney went on, but as they hate him there, it would be risky. Though... I may respect him more if he faced the wolves and didn't hide in his rich neighborhoods and homes.

ARMSTRONG's Tour De France titles will have to go to THE TWENTY THIRD PLACE WINNER

If the Tour De France titles are taken away from Lance Armstrong, the 2005 title would have to be given to the man who came in 23rd place. All other paricipants have been linked to doping charges, such as Armstrong himself.



Scroll down this page to "doping charges" for full information

To showcase further how ridiculous the lawsuit against him is and was, this was excellent. So.... he did win fairly.... as even if he was doped up, AND HE PROBS WAS NOT, he beat all the other potentially doped up competitors...fair game, look at that.

Just in time for more made-for-tv fun! 

SNOOKI had her baby, and, in case you missed it, JWOWW stuck the stork in the front yard... 

... now, we may not be seeing much more from SNOOKS about the bambino, that's because MTV WILL AIR THE BIRTH on an upcoming show. 


Thrilling television? Well, moreso than this GOP convention nonsense...

The guys in 1D have been working on a new CD and Video, which will be released globally, soon!


ROMNEY likes birth control and ABORTION again

Remember when Romney was supportive of gay marriage, was pro choice and was a Democrat?

Remember when he changed that to become a Republican who hated gays and got religious to the point of being pro life, making all religious people look unsupportive of equality?

PhotoCredit to the video in the link below


Remember when he CHANGED HIS GOD DAMNED MIND AGAIN??

Well he did.... Full story here

It's like I don't even know what to think anymore. And now he's back with Romneycare, which is ObamaCare with abortion.... and I am thinking, "Wow, maybe a long time ago I would have voted for this man when he was who he used to be...and hey, maybe it's good that we have a president who may be able to be persuaded to change his mind as HE ALWAYS DOES IT so that could be good..."

But by this point it's like, NO! CHOOSE A SIDE! STICK WITH IT! NO!

That is all, I am too tired to keep up with his opinions....sir...get your shit together.

NEIL ARMSTRONG has died at Age 82

One of the greatest men of this generation has passed away after cardiovascular surgery complications.

Armstrong was commander of the Apollo 11 spacecraft, becoming the first man on the moon in 1969. His famed words, "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" are etched on the hearts of our nation and our world forever.




The whole biography of his life and accomplishments on the moon can be found here.

He was a more important man than any of us will ever become, as we must, evey day, take one second to remember his name. Rest in peace, Neil Armstrong. You were one small life in this world, but one huge influence on this universe.

THE CLASSIEST OF CLASSY: Pat Monahan does something remarkable....WAIT FOR IT.

This video is phenomenal.... someone is cutting onions very close to me because my eyes won't stop watering.

While performing on "Good Morning America," "Train" lead singer Pat Monahan began to write on his shirt as he hit the final notes of "50 Ways to Say Goodbye," the band's newest single. He then tore the shirt off, ran to an audience member with down syndrome, and handed it to her as she looked shocked, thanked him, and cried as her family cheered.



You can tell the girl was obviously a huge fan, and this is one of those moments when I have faith in humanity..... these moments are the good ones.

Lance Armstrong is STRIPPED OF ALL TITLES AND OLYMPIC MEDALS!


LANCE'S FULL STATEMENT HERE

In an act of absolute bullshit Lance Armstrong has been STRIPPED of all of his seven Tour de France titles and his OLYMPIC BRONZE because he says he is tired of fighting the dope charges.

Armstrong has conceded, saying, "I know who won those seven Tours, my teammates know who won those seven Tours, and everyone I competed against knows who won those seven Tours. The toughest event in the world where the strongest man wins. Nobody can ever change that.”


So because jealous, power hungry people continued to press heresay charges, the man has lost everything. We know who he is world, and let it be known. Call to action, write who you can, and don't let it be true.

Armstrong says the charges have taken too heavy a toll on his family and his cancer foundation, and he is done with the "one-sided.... unconstitutional witch hunt."

“It’s a sad day for all of us who love sport and our athletic heroes,” Travis Tygart, chief executive of the United States Anti-Doping Agency, said. “It’s yet another heartbreaking example of how the win-at-all-costs culture, if left unchecked, will overtake fair, safe and honest competition.”

It is possible the International Cyclying Union will appeal his suspension from the group, but thus far, nothing can be done about the loss of titles.

....A sad day when right loses, people, a sad day....

CARLY RAE JEPSEN + OWL CITY: They both perform on TODAY... but no mention of what's-his-name???

PCN Photo // Carly Rae Jepsen and the dude from Owl City on TODAY


He can't get no respect! 

CARLY RAE JEPSEN performed on NBC's TODAY show earlier, and she performed the OWL CITY song she's featured on, but, it's really HIS song... but he gets no love for it. 

Sure, Jepsen is on fire. Sure, she's having a massive career right now. But what about ADAM YOUNG? Can an electronica brotha' get some respect??

OWL CITY is on tour right now.


KATY PERRY: No makeup and looking flawless!

PCN // Katy Perry sans makeup, in yogapants, the new sweats! 

While every other 'blog' or 'gossip site' will say HEY LOOK, Katy Perry has NO MAKEUP on, we'll say, hey, look how amazing Katy looks just because she's her! 


The pop superstar, who is chilling out after a marathon world tour, massive album, and huge movie, not to mention a very high profile divorce and new relationship with a new boy, well, let's just say that she looks great. Rested. We could all stand to look this good... 

... without makeup. 

You go, Katy. You go. And tell John we say hi! 





The genius PRANKED all of NYC by PRETENDING TO BE A CELEBRITY and IT WORKED

The guy, his name is Brett Cohen. He and a few friends pretended to be a celebrity, paparazzi, and a few agents who followed him around Times Square. He wanted to see how many people would blindly beleive he is a celebrity and put him on a pedestal.

Photo screenshot from video below


EVERYONE WATCH THIS!! 

People start coming up to him asking for photos, claim to love his acting, his singing career. My FAVORITE is the stupid-ass girls in the middle who claim to love him, say they are huge fans and that having met him is the best moment of their lives.




This guy is NO ONE and by the end of the night all Times Square is glorifying him and following him around like a mob. Check it out, literally one of the best things I have ever seen.

People can be so GOD DAMN stupid and obsessed with glorifying any type of apparent celebrity...and people like Brett Cohen are the geniuses who call them out.

AVRIL LAVIGNE + CHAD KROEGER: Dining together as the romance blossomed...

PCN Photo // Chad and Avril dining, falling in love, over wine and such... 


Can you feel the love tonight...

PCN had this photo of Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne, dining in the Spring as their love blossomed... 

Now, in this late summer, preparing for harvest, the love has grown into an engagement!

Hey, hey, I wanna be a rock star.

Are we having fun yet?


ROGER CLEMENS: Rocket on launchpad for comeback mission with a life lesson for those who are ready to receive it!

Roger Clemens at the Daytona 500 in 2006 // Splash News

Say what you will about ROGER CLEMENS... but you've gotta give the ROCKET props. 

He's 50. He's made millions. He's been through hell and back... and now, he's going to pitch for an independent league baseball team which has no pro affiliation... in Sugarland, Texas. 

And he's doing it... for fun.

FUN.

See, to me, that means something. Maybe I'm just nostalgic. I remember how we'd try to go to Clemens' house as kids at Halloween to get his baseball cards. I remember how he'd show up and pitch at my High School in Katy, Texas, while the team was in practice during the spring and stuff.

I remember that his son, Koby, I think, went to my doctor, too in Katy growing up, so, yeah, maybe I'm a bit invested and nostalgic, but when Clemens takes the mound in SUGARLAND, Texas, it will be special.

It will be for the love of the game.

It will be to see if he can do it... one more time.

Sure, the rocket may not have the same speed it once had. Not too many rockets would at 50 years old, after playing for all those championship teams and striking out all those batters.

But what the rocket will still have... is his legend. And that's the most powerful fuel on the planet.

Watching him will kindle dreams in people past their prime. It will inspire people at the beginning of their careers to live with passion and to have fun...

...and for people like me, it will serve as a reminder that if you do something because it's fun... and because you love it... it stops being about money and pay and fame and it starts being about something else.

That something else?

Is living life. On your own terms.

Living life.

Go get 'em Rocketman. I'm rooting for you like the 8 year old kid I used to be knocking on your door saying trick or treat back in Texas.


KRISTEN STEWART: KICKED OFF Snow White Franchise but CHEATER BOY stays

Alright I have never been a Kristen Stewart fan. She can be weird, off-putting awkward, not the best actress, yadda yadda. I saw this story and I saw that she was kicked out of the "Snow White" series and I was like "lolzzzz that sucks."

THEN I see that Rupert Sands, the guy who is MARRIED WITH KIDS AND SLEPT WITH HIS YOUNGER ACTRESS, will still most likely be allowed to direct the films starring only the Huntsman involved with other princesses.



THEN I am thinking, "Okay, celebs cheat all the time. Sad as shit, but true." Also, I liked the end of Snow White. SPOILERS CHILDREN!! The Huntsman chooses her and their dynamic in a sequel would have been great.

So now I am just pissed. The girl made a BAD mistake, but don't take everything away from her and treat her like her sitch was so much worse than anyone else's! It's upsetting and unfair and if ANYTHING why is the womanizer/bastard/cheater allowed to continue on doing his job?

Alright.... are we seeing the injustice? Yes? No?

Admittedly, for KStew I am like "you had it coming...."
But now, I am kinda feeling bad....yikes...oi....JEESH.

Thoughts people?

DEVO: Unloads on MITT ROMNEY with DON'T ROOF RACK ME BRO!




DEVO cracked that whip on MITT ROMNEY, unleashing this pop-political-bash song on the world raising the issue that out-of-touch Romney roof-racked the family dog on the roof of his car during a vacation. 

Crazy, right?

It's a great song. Devo say it's not about being pro-Obama... rather, it's just wrong to put a dog on a roof-rack.

I mean, who does that?


ROMNEY GIRL: Totally bases MITT ROMNEY in video!




Well, there it is.

Can't post this on the station sites because it's overtly political, but here, have a look at ROMNEY GIRL... sung to the tune of AQUA'S BARBIE GIRL!

According to the IRS, HILL earned $1.8 million during that time. She's facing three years in the clink. 

Hill may wanna call up WYCLEF and PRAS to see if they can get the FUGEES back together so she can pay that tax bill! Ya'll know how much that tour would pay???

TAYLOR SWIFT: New digs to go with NEW song!

She's got a new song which is SO NOT country... and a new home among the YANKEES???!

Looks like TAYLOR SWIFT has a new crib in HYANNIS, MASS!

Check this out... it's pretty amazing, beautiful and totally in the TayTay style!

Wait a sec... isn't that KENNEDY country? Wasn't she hanging with Mariah

BTW -- what do you think of her new song, WE ARE NEVER EVER GETTING BACK TOGETHER? 

Truth - her new sound is reflective of where she is as an artist... so much more than just one genre of music. Where she's going is even better than where she's been... and we're all gonna be in for a treat when she drops her new CD!

Look at that bag... and that COKE under her arm! 


Ah, Brooke... you walked into that one.


Good news is that she's still off the rocks which caused her to stay up all night going at about mach five and what not. You know, the same rocks her ex-hubby, Charlie Sheen once so legendarily banged like an Olympic Downhill Skier during the Winter Games!


Have some COKE and a smile, Brooke! And congrats on keeping that nose clean!

GLEE: Kevin McHale has NO GLEE for the GOP or the PARTY OF TEA!

::  PCN photo :: 


He's got NO GLEE for the GOP! 

KEVIN MCHALE, the GLEE actor, was spotted with his NOT MY CUP OF TEA shirt on earlier today, making a bit of a political statement as this Presidential elections season gets even more and more silly. 

MCHALE and other members of the FOX juggernaut have been regulars at the WHITE HOUSE, performing at Easter Egg rolls and more.
