I love when people fall over, as long as they are okay of course, but what’s better than the average person tripping up? A celebrity falling on stage for all of us to laugh at. AOL have come up with a list of 10 celebrities who have fallen over and here they are for you to laugh at.
10. Christina Aguilera
Christina Aguilera’s stiletto stumble after an Aretha Franklin tribute at the Grammys was tabloid gold following her National Anthem flub at the Super Bowl, just one week before.
09. Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey was in the middle of crowd hyping when her overhead clap caused her to collapse to the floor. Like a true diva, MiMi’s entourage swept her up and got her back on her fabulous feet in no time.
08. Musiq Soulchild
R&B singer Musiq Soulchild danced himself right off the edge of the stage during a show at Madison Square Garden. Peep Musiq’s plummet at :10!
P!nk may have taken up trapeze tricks as her new hobby, but the singer-turned-acrobat was taken down by the wired hula hoops at :46. She later tweeted from a German ambulance, “I am embarrassed and very sorry. I’m in ambulance now but I will b fine.”
Rihanna was brought to her knees during a performance of ‘What’s My Name’ at a show in Canada. “Oh na na” no! Later that same week, RiRi suffered a second stage fall during her concert in Toronto.
05. Robbie Williams
Robbie Williams wiped out on stage and proceeded to give a full on explanation for the fall to the audience from the floor, rather than continue with the song. “That’s a bit embarrassing. That will teach me for being cocky,” he admits before labeling himself a “t—.”
04. Shania Twain
Country music queen Shania Twain fell from grace while making an entrance at the Country Music Television awards show. “I don’t need a stunt double,” she joked just moments after.
03. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is known for her crazy stage stunts and live show shock tactics, but sometimes the best stage moments are the unplanned mishaps. Gaga’s tumble from atop her piano bench is one such blooper.
02. Joe Jonas
During what should have been a smooth stage entrance, Jonas Brother Joe hit a speed bump, tripping over the frame of a window and landing hands-first into a floor full of broken glass. Ouch!
Beyonce lands on our list, yet again, for failing to plant her heels on the steps of a seemingly mile-high staircase on the live stage. One misstep and Queen B fell from her throne and went tumbling down … and down … and down!
When will it all end? First of all Mila Kunis was asked to attend the Marine Corps Ball with a marine who asked her out through a YouTube video and she was coaxed into it by Justin Timberlake, who then was asked out by another marine. Now Betty White has been asked to attend the ball.
Sgt. Ray Lewis has now made his own YouTube video asking Betty as his date to the ball, which takes place in November at the Martial Arts Center for Excellence in Virginia, but he has yet to receive a response from her team. I’m going to guess she will say yes because we all know it would look bad on her if she said no.
Lewis, who has served in both Afghanistan and Iraq, posted a video to YouTube on Friday, asked the 90-year-old to be his date for the ball and also says that he’ll be performing as a rapper and promises her a good time if she decides to attend.
Last week there was rumors that Mila won’t be able to attend the ball because of scheduling conflicts but she quickly denied this and said she will definitely be attending and Timberlake also said yes to go to the ball with Corporal Kelsey De Santis.
Meanwhile both Timberlake and Kunis appeared on NBC’s ‘Today Show’ and they both spoke about all of it and said that the Marines “have a lot of balls”. They also went on to explain that there is more than one event and that they wont be attending the the same ball. Kunis said “we are attending both balls. Separately. But together…. Do you think we can combine the balls?”
What do you think about all of this? I personally think it’s all good but starting to get a bit out of hand and annoying.
Over the past weekend Mila Kunis was asked out on a date to attend the Marine Corps Ball by Sgt. Scott Moore who made a YouTube video, now her ‘Friends With Benefits’ co-star Justin Timberlake has been asked out through a YouTube.
Timberlake is the one who pushed Mila into accepting the invitation to attend the ball when he told her that she needs “to do it for your country”. Now Corporal Kelsey De Santis has made a YouTube video asking him if he will attend the ball with her.
“I’m gonna call you out and ask you to come to the Marine Corps ball with me on Nov. 12, and if you can’t go, all I have to say is, cry me a river. Hit me up.” Is what De Santis, who is currently the only woman serving at the Martial Arts Center for Excellence at Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia, says in her video.
I wonder if any other celebrities are going to be asked out on a date by Marines, I think it’s all good if celebrities agree to go but seriously where does it end? Like will every celebrity have to attend because let’s face it if they turn the videos down it could bring bad press.
Speaking of turning it down, it’s rumored that Mila won’t be able to attend the ball afterall because she is shooting two movies around the time the ball takes place in November so it could be impossible for her to get time off. I have a feeling she will end up attending though if only purely to save face.
Mila Kunis is featured on the cover and inside the August 2011 issue of GQ Magazine showing off her underwear in the photoshoot all to promote her new movie, Friends With Benefits, that she stars alongside Justin Timberlake.
Mila, who want’s to know if people die on the East Coast time or West Coast time because as she says “it’s tomorrow some where in the world, can we check if those people are dead already?”, has been making the headlines this week because she agreed to go on a date with a marine who made a YouTube video asking her. Here’s part of her interview:
On if she has ever had a friend with benefits: “Oy. I haven’t, but I can give you my stance on it: It’s like communism—good in theory, in execution it fails. Friends of mine have done it, and it never ends well. Why do people put themselves through that torture? Friends with benefits isn’t a purely sexual relationship—it’s two people who like each other having sex, not a random hookup. And when two people who like each other have sex, eventually someone catches feelings and everything is fucked. You might be able to treat our relationship as killing time. I might not. I may be in love with you.”
On being a Trekkie: “I went to the Star Trek Experience in Vegas maybe five years ago. I hung out with a bunch of fake characters inside Quark’s bar. [Ed note: Quark was the name of the Ferengi bartender on DS9.] There were all these actors there pretending to be the different characters from the different shows. Yes, I loved it. But I also have a signed Leonard Nimoy photo in a little frame that a girlfriend gave to me for my 21st birthday. And I’ve got a bunch of vintage Star Trek figurines given to me by Jason Segel. God, it’s so embarrassing.”
On sex jokes: Put me at a table with five guys making dick jokes and I will be right there with them. And, uh, I’m on Family Guy. I’ve been on that show for so long that I don’t get grossed out by anything. But I’ve never had an experience where it’s been a bunch of dudes making dick jokes and I was like, “Oh, there go the boys. I’m going to go get a pedicure and be back in an hour.”
On if she’s single: “I am. I wouldn’t dare wish myself upon anybody at this point in my life! My shooting schedule is crazy. I’m a nomad till January.”
I am extremely jealous of the marine that she decided to go on a date with, not only is Mila Kunis one of the hottest women in Hollywood but she is also pretty funny.
If you don’t know who Jessie J is then you should because she is pretty amazing and she is currently taking over the world, anyway here is her new video for her latest single ‘Nobody’s Perfect’.
Her thoughts on the video? “It’s my fave video I’ve done so far!” is what she wrote on her Twitter account and while she continues to try break it big in the USA she is set to perform on the Ellen Degeneres show tomorrow. What are your thoughts on Jessie J?
It’s been 15 years since the first Scream came out in theaters and instantly became a classic and it’s been 11 years since Scream 3 came out. Now Scream 4 is set to be released tomorrow, and I can’t wait for it, so to celebrate this Digital Spy have come up with a list of the five best Scream death scenes. See if your favorite is on it:
05. Liev Schreiber – Scream 3
The initial suspect in the murder of Sidney Prescott’s mother Maureen, Cotton Weary was in fact framed by original killers Billy Loomis and Stu Macher. Cotton, who was having an affair with Maureen at the time of her death, parlayed his trauma into becoming a Z-list celebrity. A talk show host by the time Scream 3 rolled around, Cotton and his girlfriend Christine (Kelly Rutherford) met a grisly end at the start of part 3 when Ghostface came looking for Sid…
04. Sarah Michelle Gellar – Scream 2
Sarah Michelle Gellar was defining her career in the first season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer when she appeared in 1997′s hastily-assembled Scream sequel. It’s a clever bit of casting, as SMG’s smart-lipped sorority girl Casey ‘Cici’ Cooper gets nowhere near being “the final girl” as she carks it on campus. A knife in the back and drop off a balcony sees Buffy bite the dust in the clip below, which has a cracking ‘jump’ misdirection at the 3-minute mark and also features the voice of Gellar’s Cruel Intentions co-star Selma Blair…
3. Rose McGowan – Scream
“You wanna play psycho killer? Can I be the helpless victim?” Rose McGowan’s Tatum Riley almost gets away from Ghostface. But alas, that garage exit is just a bit too small for her to squeeze through. Getting squelched up against the ceiling is an undignified and painful end for Sidney’s best pal. Incidentally, Rose McGowan allegedly discovered during filming that she could fit all the way through the pet flap of doom…
2. Jamie Kennedy – Scream 2
Randy Meeks’s knowledge of horror cinema’s rules and conventions helped him survive the first Woodsboro bloodbath (just about!), but when it came to the sequel he was all out of luck. Played with a nerdy exuberance by Jamie Kennedy, Randy’s murder in the back of a truck was not met favourably by Scream fans so Craven resurrected the character via a recorded video message for Scream 3.
1. Drew Barrymore – Scream
It had to be this, didn’t it? The opening scene to Scream shocked cinemagoers and perfectly sets up the self-referential, satirical tone for the horror franchise. Drew Barrymore, who was on the verge of a career resurgence at the time, could’ve been the star of the franchise… Not so in Craven and writer Kevin Williamson’s mind. The pair rip a page out of Alfred Hitchcock’s book (Psycho famously offed Janet Leigh early), killing Drew’s Casey Becker in the opening minutes as she waits for her boyfriend. It sums up Scream’s ethos perfectly: Nobody is safe!
Of course Drew’s had to be number 1 but I would have made Sarah Michelle Gellar’s number 2. What are your thoughts?
Here’s the mug shot of Teen Mom 2 star Janelle Evans because she has been arrested after TMZ released a video, which you can see below, of her beating up a girl in North Carolina all the while her friends cheered her on during the vicious attack.
Oak Island Police reportedly seen the video and went to Janelle’s house to arrest her she was then booked into Brunswick County Jail and released on bond a while later. Britany Truett, the girl who was beaten up, originally said she wasn’t going to press charges but has since changed her mind.
Janelle, who is now due back in court on April 26th, was charged with assault and affray for fighting. The whole fight was over a guy named Kieffer Delp who was also arrested when police found him at Janelle’s house because he had a warrant otu for him over cocaine charges from last year.
An attorney for the Teen Mom star said “Based on the information that I have received, I believe Jenelle was set up.” Um really? The girl who was disgustingly beating up another girl is the one who was set up? Her lawyer better come up with a better defense than that. MTV sure does pick out people don’t they? The video of the attack is below.
Models are often asked to pose with animals, especially snakes, and I’m sure they are aware with the risk involved in it but don’t care because of the money. But now it’s the animals that should be asked if they are willing to take a risk with the models because a snake has died from silicone poisoning after biting into a model’s breast and here is a video of the whole thing.
Orit Fox, a model from Israel, was posing with a boa constrictor snake for some photoshoot but the snake obviously liked her boobs a bit too much and decided to bite into them but it was the snake who came off worse for wear.
Orit was taken to a nearby hospital and was given a tetanus shot but the snake died a while later from silicone poisoning. You can see the whole thing go down in the video above, to be honest I can’t really blame the snake for wanting to launch onto her boobs.
As with every disaster that happens the amount of douchebags that come out of the wood works and show themselves off for what they are – a douchebag, just like 50 Cent did with his tweets and Gilbert Gottfried also with his tweets. Because of these people Vanity Fair have come up with a list of the 5 most appalling videos that came out after the Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan. Here they are:
1. Meet YouTube user tamtampamela. She believes that “God shook the country of Japan, he literally grabbed the country by the shoulders and said, ‘Hey, look, I’m here!’” [“Literally.”—Ed.] She continues, “Oh, it’s just so amazing to see how God can just answer prayers like this.”
2. Are you there, God? It’s us, VF Daily. If we could have one prayer answered, it would be to see this lady sing about Revelation 21:8 (“the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur”) to the tune of “Baa, Baa, Blacksheep,” literally. Your basic earthquake-is-a-sign-from-God response plus one orange T-shirt.
3. If Godzilla could destroy anything it’d be this video. Well, technically it would be the first video in the list, but he would get to this one, too.
4. Be sure to listen to this with your earphones on, please. “American manners,” O.K.? This lady has the following things to say about “Asians in the library”: “I swear, they’re going through their whole families, just checking on everybody from the tsunami thing—I mean, I know, O.K., that sounds horrible, like, I feel bad for all people affected by the tsunami, but if you’re gonna go call your address book, you might as well go outside because if something is wrong, you might really freak out if you’re in the library and everyone’s quiet.”
5. And now, a quick reprieve from the horrors of the four previous videos: the requisite (but brilliant) parodic defense of the library screed. “I mean, you see the thing that I just don’t get: I mean like, she said, ‘I want no one to take offense to this.’”
One word – douchebags.

Looks like Miley Cyrus will soon have another boyfriend because according to several reports she has been texting Kings of Leon’s bassist, Jared Followill, since they first met at the EMA’s last November.
Hollywood life reports that Miley has apparently been trying to keep him interested but instead of sending full on slutty text messages, I’m kind of shocked actually, she is being coy. She is 18-years-old and he is 24-years-old. A friend of Jared’s said:
“Miley wants to keep Jared interested. She often sends him coy text messages. So far, he is a big fan of what she has been sending. He’s such a fan, in fact, he’s been bragging to his friends about her texts! “Jared loves showing off his texts from Miley. He thinks she’s very pretty and is excited she’s still flirting with him.”
Meanwhile while Miley isn’t trying to find her next dude to latch on to she is getting into fights with members of the paparazzi. While out to lunch with her mom, Tish Cyrus, one of the paps hit Tish with a camera and this didn’t go down too well with Miley. Watch for yourself.
I have to say good for Miley on this one, on top of defending her mother she also gave me a good laugh watching htis video. I love the part when she warns him not to do it again as if she would beat his ass down.
Gary Busey wasn’t the only one giving us all a laugh today with his dance moves because here’s the video that’s been floating around the internet all day of Tom Brady showing off his best dance moves at Carnival in Rio De Janeiro. I don’t know what’s more awkward his dancing or the ponytail he’s sporting.
The New England Patriots quarterback may be good on the football field but as you can see in the video he definitely has two left feet when it comes to his dance moves.
Brady was watching Gisele Bundchen do her thing on a float going through the parade all the while proving that white men definitely have no rhythm and look awkward as hell when dancing.
Over the past couple of years there has been more and more porn parodies coming out of the wood works, mostly by Hustler, and they are actually quite funny. The Houston Post have come up with a list of the best pop-culture ones that have come out so far. Note the videos are kind of NSFW.
Batman XXX: A Porn Parody
The best thing about this is that they had the smarts to spoof the ’60s TV series, playing right into our Julie Newmar fetish.
This Ain’t Glee: A XXX Parody
Kinda creepy, with the kids being in high school, but someone’s buying it.
Golden Girls: A XXX MILF Parody
See some of the industry’s best MILF performers put to good use as the gals from Miami deal with aging, and of course, sex.
This Ain’t Star Trek
This show was always about two steps away from being porn even in the ’60s, depending on who you ask.
The Breakfast Club: A XXX Parody
Who says porn can’t get wrapped up in ’80s nostalgia?
This Ain’t Avatar XXX
For a Halloween project for Art Attack, I got to be covered in blue paint, a la Avatar. At least they didn’t paint everything. And yes you are correct, in this version, unobtainium is Viagra.
Roseanne: A XXX Parody
This one has to stray a bit from the original show, but it’s worth seeing Dan and Roseanne finally get it on, right? Right?
This Ain’t Beverly Hills 90210 XXX
The directors did a great job capturing the ’90s feel in this version of the Fox teen drama, right down the music and the video editing. Even Mr. Walsh gets a piece of Donna this time around.
Not The Bradys: A XXX Parody
Of course Ron Jeremy plays Sam The Butcher, because he delivers the meat. Do you get it? It’ funny because he has a large penis.
The Big Lebowski: A XXX Parody
I’m assuming someone fucks with the Jesus this time around. The story centers on someone getting blown on the Dude’s rug, and you can take the story from there. Bonus points for Evan Stone as “The Stranger” and the narrator.
Seinfeld: A XXX Parody
Yes! Evan Stone as the Porn Nazi screaming “No porn for you!” and James Deen nailing Jerry’s voice. Hehehe, nail.
30 Rock: A XXX Parody
In a predictable turn of events, Lisa Ann plays Tina Fey’s Liz Lemon character. You remember Fey played Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live, while Lisa Ann portrayed Palin in those Nailin’ Paylin’ movies, closing the circle on this blog like a sweet little daisy chain.
It’s kind of sad that I’ve seen all of these. What would you add to the list?
source: The Best Pop-Culture Porn Parodies Today (NSFW) [Houston Press]
Viral videos have been going on for years, they aren’t just a YouTube phenomena. So Urlesque ave come up with some of the best viral videos pre-YouTube days.
Yatta (Irrational Exuberance Edition):
The phonetic English translation that launched a thousand more.
Tunak Tunak Tun:
Is it just me or are India’s female pop stars way better looking than their male ones?
Another classic from Threebrain. To me, his animations define that era of weird, juvenile internet culture.
End of Ze World:
I feel like this video exploded viral videos in a bigger way than any before it. I distinctly remember overhearing a gaggle of sorority girls at my college saying, “But I am le tired” in the cafeteria. And I still hear “WTF, mate” from time to time.
My Anus is Bleeding:
This animated short from Don Hertzfeldt is part of a series called “Rejected.” It wasn’t born on the internet, but it was one of the first videos to build a huge cult following on the web.
British cartoonist David Firth created this series of flash cartoons in 2004. Like Eraserhead for the net set.
Another big hit from the Group X collective.
I’m the Juggernaut Bitch:
In 2003, My Way Entertainment released this overdub of the X-men cartoon show.
GI Joe Parodies:
Fensler Films cleverly recut and recontextualized the PSAs that accompanied the 80s G.I. Joe cartoons.
Ding Fries Are Done:
This one, like Peanut Butter Jelly Time, was eventually (unfunnily) recreated by Family Guy.
Funny enough they are all on YouTube now, check out the full list at the source.

There are many actors who take on roles that require them to sing, then there are actors who try both act and have a singing career. Then there are actors who are just awful when it comes to singing, let’s take a look at 5 of them according to ONTD.
5. Pierce Brosnan, Mamma Mia. Grade: D-
Pierce entered this film with a strategy that has worked for many actors before him, most notably Richard Gere, the sing-speak approach. The key to this strategy is to not sing, really, but instead speak the words to the rhythm of the song, almost like a lame, broadway rap. Somehow Pierce is so musically challenged he couldn’t even manage this. When he was forced to actually sustain a note, things got really bad. This tortured my ears as much as Die Another Day tortured my eyes.
4. Cameron Diaz. Grade: F
Cameron Diaz showcased her vocal stylings in the 1997 film, A Life Less Ordinary. There were a lot of things to love about this quirky comedy. Cameron Diaz’s singing was not one of them. Put down the microphone, honey, Ewan and I are having a moment.
3. Jon Stewart. Grade: F-
Stewart very reluctantly joined the more musically gifted Stephen Colbert in a duet in at the Rally to Restore Sanity/Fear. It restored my fear more than my sanity. Of all the people on this list, he was the only one who had the good sense to apologize afterward.
2. Denise Richards. Grade: F- -
Baseball games have the dubious honor of producing some of the worst celebrity singing in the history of tone-deaf, delusional actors. Only in this context is Denise Richards merely the second worst singer we’ve heard. Take her out to the ballgame. Actually, somebody please just take her out.
1. Roseanne Barr. Grade: F – - -
This really needs no explanation. I wish she had forgotten more of the words. Nay, all of the words.
I think it’s a pretty accurate list, who would you add to it?
Forbes have come up with a list of the best advertising jingles of all time and as you can expect McDonald’s and Coca Cola are featured on the list. Check out the full list….
I’d like to buy the world a Coke (Coca Cola)
Stranded in a Shannon, Ireland, airport in January 1971, McCann-Erickson creative director Bill Backer used a napkin to scribble down the last line of the now iconic jingle, which Backer wrote with songwriters Roger Greenaway and Roger Cook and Coca-Cola’s music director Billy Davis. The jingle, performed by popular recording act The New Seekers, was featured in a 1971 Coke commercial called “Hilltop.”
Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Mayer Wiener (Oscar Mayer)
This jingle was composed and written by Chicago’s Richard Trentlage, who won a contest run by New York’s JWT in 1962 for Kraft’s Oscar Mayer brand. The jingle lives on today, having aired in 19 countries and reached at least 49 million families.
Two all beef patties… (McDonalds)
Just in case you were unsure about what you’d get on a Big Mac, this 1974 tongue-twister created by Needham, Harper and Steers, Chicago, for McDonalds told you in just a few short seconds what you’ll find on the burger franchise’s iconic offering.
I don’t wanna grow up, I’m a Toys R Us kid (Toys ‘R Us)
Written by Linda Kaplan Thaler for New York’s JWT and first appearing on the airwaves in 1982, this classic jingle quickly became embedded in the minds of children and adults everywhere.
You Deserve a Break Today (McDonald’s)
With a melody written by jingle singer and song writer Kenny Karen, this famous 1971 McDonald’s jingle featured employees singing about their jobs and the cleanliness of your local McDonald’s.
Wouldn’t you like to be a pepper too? (Dr. Pepper)
Advertisements created by New York’s Young & Rubicam for Dr. Pepper featuring this jingle were run from 1977 to 1985 and were written by popular musician Randy Newman and songwriter Jake Holmes. The popular commercial starred David Naughton of the 1981 film An American Werewolf in London.
Campbell’s Soup M’m M’m Good (Campbell’s Soup)
Created in 1935 by agency BBDO, this jingle has been used frequently in advertising for Campbell’s Soup for decades. Most recently, the company brought back the jingle for a campaign in September 2000 that aimed to reinvigorate sales for the Camden, N.J.-based company.
Plop, plop, fizz, fizz, oh what a relief it is… (Alka Seltzer)
Created in 1953 by copywriter Paul Margulies, this jingle would become popular due in part to Alka Seltzer’s mascot, Speedy. The jingle would return from 1975 to 1980 and found new life when legendary entertainer Sammy Davis Jr. rerecorded the track for a 1978 commercial.
Stuck on Me (Band-Aid)
This memorable jingle for Johnson and Johnson’s Band-Aid brand was first featured in a 1975 commercial created by New York’s Young and Rubicam starring John Travolta. The tune made a comeback in 2007 when J&J rolled out a new antibiotic bandage.
Double Your Pleasure, Double Your Fun (Wrigley’s Doublemint Gum)
This famous jingle was introduced in commercials created by Chicago’s BBDO in 1960 which featured the now-famous Doublemint Twins singing the tune. The jingle received a facelift in 2007 when musician Chris Brown put his spin on the timeless jingle.
There are so many missing from this list, what would you add to it?
