"@macklemore, first you trick people into thinking you're a rapper, now you trick them into thinking you're Jewish?"
Seth Rogen, along with many other people, found Macklemore's on-stage "disguise" this week pretty anti-Semitic. (Twitter)

"A fake witches nose, wig, and beard = random costume. Not my idea of a stereotype of anybody."
Macklemore denies the alleged anti-Semiticism (Twitter)

"@macklemore really?? Because if I told someone to put together an anti Semitic Jew costume, they'd have that exact shopping list."
Ding!Ding!Ding! Seth Rogen wins this one. (Twitter)

"It's not a competition, but if it was: I won! Guess what? I'm okay with that! ... I want to thank everybody on Earth, everybody on Earth ... except Donald Sterling."
Justin Timberlake, won seven awards at the Billboard Music Awards -- and was pretty funny while he was doing it.

"All I wanna do is make it right.. All I wanna do is get you back tonight... I gotta get her go, get her go, get her go, get her back ... I gotta treat her right ... I never should have raised my voice or made you feel so small, I never should've asked you to do anything at all ..."
Robin Thicke lost his last shred of dignity at the Billboard Awards, singing a new song, "Get Her Back," clearly directed at his estranged wife, Paula Patton. Enough, already!

"So I'm looking at Tupac, and he's trying to yell back at Suge, and I'm asking him, 'Who shot you? What happened? Who did it?' ... but he's trying to yell at Suge. And I kept asking over and over, 'Who did this? Who shot you?' ... He looked at me and he took a breath ... And then the words came out: 'Fuck you.'"
Chris Carroll, a Las Vegas cop at the scene when Tupac was shot, just told a never-before-heard version of events to


"People hopefully now at least know there is a heart beneath the boobs and that's one of the reasons my boobs are so big, it's just all heart pushin' out my chest."
We're genuinely enjoying Dolly Parton's endless publicity interviews for her new album, Blue Smoke. (Bust Magazine)

"Rumours are circulating that The Stone Roses are preparing to split up."
Wait. The Stone Roses are still together?! (

"no biggie for me; it would have been 84 interminable seconds of

chugging Draino and "please kill me now" that I'd never get back. Sorry

we're not KOOL enough to warrant a blessing from the Princess. (or in

this case the Village idiot) ... oh and Riahnna, Halloween isn't for a

while. but good on you for testing out your costume in public... See ya

on the way down... I'm guessing you needed those precious 84 seconds to

situate that bad wig before you left the restaurant..."

Sheen's girlfriend wanted to meet Rihanna when the singer happened to be

in the same restaurant as the couple, but Rihanna said no, blaming

paparazzi. Mr. Sheen subsequently hit Twitter. Hard.

And finally, let's all take a moment to be horrified by the fact that everyone in the joyous  video below has been arrested by Iranian authorities for parodying Pharrell's "Happy" video. Tehran's police chief called it "a vulgar clip which hurt public chastity" (because it features the uncovered hair of women). Massive sad face:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
