Real Housewives of Orange County's Tamra Judge Has a Bone to Pick With Lady Gaga

Categories: WTF

Every time the strange saga of the Real Housewives of Orange County seems like its over, it only gets more annoying. Just take a look at what transpired recently in Real Housewife land after Lady Gaga foolishly decided to feature the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in her video for "G.U.Y."

We won't discuss the merits (or demerits) of the video or Gaga's album for that matter. But we do pass judgement former RHOC cast member Tamra Judge for her response to the video. Joining Ryan Seacrest on his morning radio show, Judge voiced her disappointment with the pop star's casting of the video saying, "Why were they in it and we were not? We are the originals, Gaga ... I'm so disappointed!" She continues by saying that Gaga broke her implants on Andy Cohen's show (whoever that is). Oy vey.

Via a friend who used to work at a modeling and acting agency in New York, some really rare and hilarious early photos of the rock musician / Party God / advice columnist Andrew W.K. have surfaced.

We asked Andrew for an explanation (and permission to publish) of the photos, and he tells us that back in the late '90s, long before he became the the World's Undisputed Party King, he tried his hand modeling and acting. These early headshots are a result. Andrew tells us the modeling and acting career never quite took off, but one assumes he did get ample working cutting different types of materials with that sharp jaw line. Hubba hubba.

RZA To Defend His Chess Championship in Anaheim This Weekend

Categories: WTF

If you ever pegged RZA as someone who played chess, the kind of player willing to take on all-comers at a tournament of the game of kings, then congratulations--you're a better judge of character than I am. Let that sink in for a second...RZA of Wu-Tang Clan is participating in the Chess Kings Invitational at the Anaheim Business Expo, a celebrity chess tournament this weekend. Just when you don't think the story can get any better, it does.

The rapper will defend his title in an eight-man speed chess tournament (whatever that means). RZA won the first HHCF (Hip-Hop Chess Federation) heavyweight title belt in 2007. Who knew chess had weigh classes, let alone championship belts?! Incredulously, this sounds like something that should be broadcasted on the Ocho (remember that channel in Dodgeball?) at minimum, maybe even Pay-Per-View.

RZA isn't the only celebrity who will be throwing down in the tourney. Other rappers including Dilated Peoples' Rakaa Iriscience, Mike Relm, DJ Rob Flow, and Quadir Lateef are also slated to participate in the event.

Oh, the weather outside is frightful. That is, it's frightful for most of the country. While high winds, mountains of snow and unsettlingly low temperatures are tormenting the majority of the country, here in lovely Orange County we're somewhat spared of the madness. But, why should we be left out of the fun? Leave the freezer open and pile on the layers because here's a playlist we fashioned for you to simulate your own Polar Vortex!

Justin Bieber Retires? WTF

Categories: WTF

Just when you think 2013 is in the bag and there's little left to do, that little nugget of joy known as Justin Bieber strikes again. In case you were out celebrating Christmas Eve with your family or shopping for them against the deadline, you missed the "big news." In case you care, the Biebs took to Twitter announced his "retirement" from music. Whatever that means.

Either this can be construed as a clever way to call attention to Bieber's latest film, Justin Bieber's Believe, or a lame way, keep the conversation about him going. Admittedly, it's been a funny year to talk about the pop star. He's been a constant source of unintentional comedy with his antics being more outrageous than the last. If he wasn't pissing off Keyshawn Johnson, he infuriated people with good taste with his Anne Frank house stunt. But this, this may be the whammy.

The YouTube Music Awards Were a Hot Mess Last Night

Categories: WTF

Youtube-Music-Awards-2013.jpg
When people think of the first Sunday in November, they think of football, Daylight Saving Time or Thanksgiving being around the corner. While those three things were on people's minds, another option entered into the equation: the ill-fated first YouTube Music Awards.

Unlike other awards shows, this one was pretty much completely freeform. What does that mean? For starters, there was no script and seemingly no structure for anyone to go off. This may seem like a minor detail, but structure is the glue that holds awards shows together. Even with Spike Jonze directing and Jason Schwartzman and Reggie Watts hosting the event, it was a mess.

Through the power of the web, the event was live-streamed, yet it seemed as if hardly anyone tuned in or even cared about the event, even though the awards were dependent on the viewers. Huh? The best I can surmise from this is that if an awards show happens and no one cares enough to tune in, can we pretend it never happened?

Kanye Proposes to Kim at a Baseball Stadium. Seriously.

For a guy who seems like he's a romantic at heart, Kanye West sure has a funny way of proposing. In case you missed it, his Yeezusness finally popped the big question to his main squeeze and mother of his child, Kim Kardashian, at, of all places, AT&T Park in San Francisco. Kanye did indeed rent out literally the entire ballpark that houses the San Francisco Giants to ask Kim if she'd like to be Mrs. West. The entire affair took place on her 33rd birthday.

Romantic? Sure. Thoughtful? Absolutely. After all, who rents out an entire stadium in a city where the two don't even reside to propose? There isn't a more scenic venue at this time of the year. Kanye whisked her away to San Francisco and blindfolded her before they headed to the stadium (Kanye is even more genius than originally said because he did it before a gig up by the Bay. Would love to see these reviews).

The couple's friends and family were on hand for the event, which was topped off by fireworks and a 50-piece orchestra, according to E!. It's not like anyone should be surprised, but the orchestra, of course, they played a Kanye song "Knock You Down," in addition to Lana Del Rey's "Young and Beautiful" (which was an interesting choice). Kardashian got a 15-karat Lorraine Schwartz ring. Whatever that means (I know that's A LOT of karats).

Our Favorite Starbucks Drake Hands

Categories: LOL, WTF

Your 15 minutes of fame are almost up. (Hopefully.)
What could be creepier than giving a male barista at Starbucks your number only to have him text you a video of himself staring seductively while he touches his face with Drake's "Hold On, We're Going Home" playing in the background? Well, that's exactly what happened when Piper Kennedy gave her number to guy named Brody Ryan. While he clearly didn't get in Piper's pants, the video was posted on YouTube and the viral magic commenced. What started out as an attempt at Internet humiliation, switched from being creepy into being trendy when the parodies started popping up one by one. Twitter and Instagram also got aboard using the hashtag #StarbucksDrakeHands. We've complied some of the best ones, from everyday folks and even a few celebrities.

An Open Letter About Open Letters

Categories: WTF

Dear Sinead, go away. Love, Everyone
To Whom It May Concern:

This is an open letter to address the onslaught of open letters that have flooded the press cycle for the past couple of weeks. If you've written an open letter, it means you A) don't have the courage to take care of your business in private or B) you need the attention that goes with putting your name out there.

Usually this is something that wouldn't bother commenting on. However, as of late, open letters have been used to garner publicity rather an addressing issues. When it comes to music, far too many people take themselves seriously. Witness the Sinead O'Connor-Miley Cyrus spat. Yes, Cyrus did whatever she did at the VMAs, but honestly, who cares? That's so six weeks ago. To top that, even though he did it in jest (I think), Sufjan Stevens jumped on the open letter bandwagon for who the hell knows why.

Did Chris Brown Really Get Laid When He Was Eight? Doubt It

Chris Brown at Powerhouse 2013
Just when you think Chris Brown couldn't do any more Chris Brown things, then Chris Brown out-Chris Browns himself. Yes, those were four uses of Chris Brown in the first sentence, but judging by his latest antic, that wouldn't be anymore self-serving than the news of his latest transgression which, in this case, sounds fishy at best.

In case you missed it, which you probably did considering the news was published in the UK newspaper the Guardian, the 24-year-old gave a candid interview by his standards. While this seems ho-hum or even can be met with a shrug, Brown managed to top himself by saying he lost his virginity when he was eight years-old. Eight! He said that it was to a girl who was either 14 or 15, but you know, small details like that don't matter when you're concocting a story that's so absurd and ridiculous to even imagine it in the first place.
