Party Trick or Talent?

Miss New York, Kira Kazantsev, was crowned Miss America last night in Atlantic City.

For the talent portion of the competition, she sat cross-legged on the stage and sang Pharrell's "Happy" while banging a red cup on the floor.

Afterwards, she explained the cup.
"The reason why I chose to do that talent is I wanted every single little girl in America to be able to see that you can do that talent — you can do whatever talent you want on national television — even with a red cup — and still be Miss America and have the time of your life. I literally in that minute and 30 seconds had the most fun I've ever had, and that's because I stayed true to myself and I did what I wanted to do for my talent, no matter what everybody else told me, and it paid off. I'm very happy about it."
And there's the lesson for all future Miss America contestants.

Why waste money on singing lessons or music lessons when all you have to do is master a Solo cup?

Stuff That Face

There's got to be a room filled with Tonight Show writers dedicated solely to cooking up wacky stunts.

And there's got to be another room filled with producers who have the uncanny ability to talk celebrities into doing just about anything.

The latest offering: a Face-Stuffing Contest, where a celebrity faces off (pun intended!) against Jimmy Fallon eating some fun foods with interesting utensils.

In this case, spaghetti with whisks, loaded nachos with salad tongs, and blueberry pie with no utensils at all.

The celebrity? Tony- and Emmy-winning actress Glenn Close, who returns to Broadway soon in "A Delicate Balance."

Be sure to watch this one til the end. It's pretty funny.

Ray Rice Gets Advice?

Ray Rice has been the subject of a lot of chatter these past few weeks, especially since he was released by the Baltimore Ravens after video surfaced of him knocking his then-girlfriend out in a casino elevator in Atlantic City.

Everyone's talking about domestic abuse because of it, and it's good for the conversation to happen.

But then you get interviews like this one, with Chris Brown doling out advice on MTV to Rice.

Yes, that Chris Brown. The one convicted of felony assault after beating Rihanna five years ago.

There's something that doesn't feel right about that… Maybe it's just me.

Say What, Kanye?

While perforing in Australia over the weekend, Kanye West stopped his concert and said he couldn't go on until everyone was standing. He then went to great lengths to point out the two people who hadn't stood up with the rest.

One guy stood, but waved his prosthetic leg at Kanye, who gave him permission to sit back down.

But other guy didn't stand, and Kanye refused to start the show. When Kanye was told the concertgoer was in a wheelchair, Kanye allegedly told his security team to make sure the guy was handicapped. He didn't start the show until that was confirmed.

Way to go, Yeezy. Paying $100 or more to see you isn't enough to prove someone's a fan. Now you've got to get out of your seat too?

Or maybe Kanye thinks he's a healing force.

How long do you think it will be before he's on the road perfoming in "Yeezus Christ: Superstar?"

There's video of the incident, and it's painful to watch - especially when the audience started booing the guys who didn't stand up and yelled, "Stand up! Stand up!"

Who's On Board With Scottish Independence?

Who better to help you decide on political issues than a cartoon character, am I right?

No, this is not a Fox News joke...

On September 18, voters in Scotland - that's an island country in the Atlantic Ocean in the area aka the British Isles that's currently sorta-kinda under British rule, despite what we learned by watching Mel Gibson in Braveheart - will decide if their country will separate from the United Kingdom.

To help voters decide, Groundskeeper Willie (the kilt-wearing school janitor from The Simpsons) is weighing in on the side of independence.

And who better to run the new country than Willie himself. Why?

Because he won't be intimidated by other world leaders.

In his own words: "Willie won't back down to world leaders because I haven't a clue who they are, and I'm not willin' to learn!"

If Scotland turns him away, sounds like we might have our first presidential candidate for 2016.

Nicki Flashes in Paris

During one of the final shows of BeyJay's On the Run Tour in Paris, Nicki Minaj joined Queen Bey on stage to perform their "Flawless" remix.


When it was done, Nicki posted a photo to Instagram, thanking BeyJay for the opportunity and for the influence they've had on her and her career.

Afterwards, she was caught dancing in a nighclub and the headline about that reads: "Nicki Flashes Underboob."

Because, as you know, it's so difficult to catch Nicki Minaj in any stage of undress...

If you simply must see, US Weekly has the photo...

Not Cool, LAPD

Social media's been buzzing all weekend about an incident in Studio City, California last Thursday involving Django Unchained actress Daniele Watts.

The cops were responding to a 911 call about alleged indecent exposure inside an open car. When they arrived, they spotted Daniele (who's black) and her husband, Brian James Lucas (who's white) and demanded ID.

As Brian described it on his Facebook page: "I could tell that whoever called on us (including the officers), saw a tatted RAWKer white boy and a hot bootie shorted black girl and thought we were a HO (prostitute) & a TRICK (client)."

Because Daniele refused to produce her ID, the cops allegedly handcuffed her and put her in the back of their patrol car. There are pictures and video on Daniele's Facebook page.

The LAPD says that because no arrests were made, there's no official record of the incident.

Daniele and her husband are talking about hiring a lawyer.

Another horrible chapter in the LAPD history...

Does Your New iPhone Measure Up?

The day after the announcement of the new Apple iPhones, Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan were discussing the size of the apparati.

And things got hilariously out of control as Kelly demanded to know just how big the 5.5-inch model was.

Without a prototype in hand, the folks on the show had to guess and improvise, until someone whipped out a ruler.

Kelly played it all completely deadpan. Michael almost lost it a couple of times.

Check out the video. How serious do you think Kelly was?

Charlie Sheen Makes Up the Difference, and Then Some

Earlier in the week, LeSean McCoy of the Philadelphia Eagles made the news when a local burger joint posted a copy of a receipt showing that the NFL star had left a 20 cent tip on a $61.56 tab.

For the record, LeSean says it isn't true. But, the story went viral anyway.

Enter the knight in shining armor, Charlie Sheen. He heard about the story, and pledged to give the jilted server $1000.

Just because he wants to help.

So how about that?

Mike Tyson Endorses... Who?

Mike Tyson visited Toronto this week to appear in his one-man Broadway show, "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth."

While he was there, he met with Toronto's mayor, Rob Ford, and took the time to endorse Ford's re-election bid.

You'll recall that Ford has had his problems in the past. Drug abuse. A stint in a rehab facility. And now this – an endorsement from Mike Tyson. How much can one man stand?

Check out the clip below from CBC News. They report that Tyson called Ford the "best mayor in Toronto history."



Tyson also stopped by a local news show to promote his show, and the host – Nathan Downer – dared to bring up Tyson's criminal past. That's when Tyson unleashed a tirade of expletives, showing his disdain for the host.

We can't share it here – it's pretty nasty – but it's easy enough to find on line if you're interested (Huffington Post has it, for instance).
