    Last night at the MTV Video Music Awards, Kayne West proved why he is a lunatic.

    While Taylor Swift accepted the Best Female Video Award for "You Belong With Me," Kayne West grabbed her microphone and began rambling on how he thought Beyonce had been jipped. He thought Beyonce should have won for "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)." (You think the world wants to know what you're dancing to in the club?Oh... wait... you think the world wants to know everything you're thinking, doing, seeing, eating...)

    "Yo, Taylor, I'm really happy for you, and I'm going to let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time," he shouted. "One of the best videos of all time!"

    While Taylor Swift looked onwards at the scene unfolding with a look of utter disbelief the camera panned to Beyonce. Her facial expression was of the same nature as Swift's. Talk about a nightmare.

    Supposedly Kanye had been boozing it up on the red carpet before the show. His girlfriend, Amber Rose, was in

  • Rihanna's Shades: Yay or Nay?

    Thursday at Intermix's Fashion Night Out celebration in New York City, Rihanna donned a pair of sunglasses that are more reminiscent as fly eyes than anything else.

  • If TV Soap Operas can influence the minds of millions of Brazilians out of producing so many children, what else do you think that electronic box can make you do?

    In a recent study performed by Eliana La Ferrara of Italy's Bocconi University and Alberto Chong and Suzanne Duryea of the Inter-American Development Bank, soap operas may be a factor in the drop in fertility rates in Brazil. Where in 1960 the average Brazilian woman had 6.3 children, results shown in a 2000 census tell this rate is down to 2.3. Puzzled by this drastic reduction in birth rates and without a state policy that reduces your allowance of children, researchers began to analyze this trend.

    It seems a commercial network, Rede Globo , could be to blame. For the past few decades most of the Brazilan population has regularly tuned into these Soap Operas or Novelas. These Novelas depict smaller family groups where 72% of the actors have no children and 21% have only one child. Watching these shows for decades and

  • User post: What's Your Hair Dream?

    For years and years, I have been a blond. A nice, golden blond color has been my friend for as long as I can remember. Month after month and year after year, my roots would start to call. Time for a run to the drugstore and purchase my blond dye kit; time to hide what is dark. Yay! Although I couldn't stand the sight of this truth from beneath my scalp, hubby loved to see the real me. This sight of truth didn't make me look so prim and proper and I think he likes when I look a little dirty. Hey, to each their own...

    After years of trying to hide my dark roots, I'm beginning to embrace them instead of hide them away in my head. This is not an easy task. Once your hair has been bleached for as long as mine has, the hair is very porous. That means the darker hair color has a harder time grasping the hair strand, in turn leaving me at first try with green hair. After another bottle of dark brown color it looked a little better but each time I wash my hair, the color fades back to blond.

  • User Post: Are you wearing white after Labor Day?


    It's official: Labor Day has come and gone. The rules of fashion have long advised against wearing white after Labor Day. I say poo to the idea. It's fashion and fun. Why not wear what makes you happy.

    So...

    Are you still going to wear white?

  • User post: What would it take to help commit your lover?

    I made a promise to myself that I wouldn't speak of this couple again but I'm breaking it today. The Pratt's: what a mess... The latest saga in their relationship made me wonder how far could your lover go before you question their sanity and wonder if they might need the intervention only a mental ward can provide?

    Exclusive to Access Hollywood , Spencer Pratt is in the process of legally changing his name to "King Spencer Pratt". Spencer explained the reason behind his decision to legally change his name is, "I have decided that if there is a Queen of England and Prince William, we need to have a King of America, and I have nominated myself for that title."

    Talk about coo coo!

    This morning's press brought another wacky view from Mr. Pratt himself. He threatens divorce if Heidi gets pregnant. Spencer told MTV News his view on if she gets pregnant, "I told her there's a divorce or adoption," he says. "If she's not down with the adoption, I think it's divorce."

    It is seriously time

  • User Post: The Duggars Pregnant With 19th: Why not adopt?

    Living the Quiverfull Christian movement to it's finest, Michelle Duggar told the Today Show today, (September 1, 2009) she is two and a half months pregnant. The baby will be born in the springtime after the Duggar's first grandchild will be welcomed into the world.

    With eighteen children so far, all with names that start with J, I wonder how many more children they will bless the world with? They practice the Quiverfull Christian faith which tells its believers that children are a blessing from God and you are not allowed to practice any type of birth control.

    Luckily the Duggar's are blessed with the monetary means to support this brood. Living in their 7000 square foot home in Tontitown, Arkansas my ex-boss was a friend of this family at one time. Because my ex-boss, I'll call him Jim, was in the construction business and Jim Bob Duggar made his fortune in real estate, these two ran with some of the same circles. Jim always said they were the nicest people but he was shocked by

  • Would You Take Love Advice From Anne Heche?

    Although the marriage has been over for more than two years, the divorce settled six months ago, and a new baby born to the mother from a different father, Anne Heche seems bitter about her last husband. Last night on the Dave Letterman show, Heche describes her feelings about her ex-husband and sperm donor, Coley Laffoon, "He goes out to the mailbox and he opens up the little mailbox door and goes, 'Oh! I got a check from Anne! Oh! I got a check from Anne! Yay!'"

    Heche and Laffoon who have a 7-year-old son, Homer, have been fighting over their relationship since he filed for divorce in February 2007 after five years of marriage. She said he was a deadbeat who watches porn and hits strip clubs. He says she is mentally unbalanced.

    Last June, they reached a settlement, with her agreeing to pay him a $275,000 lump sum and $3,700 per month in child support for their son.

    While collecting this child support, Laffoon wishes Heche would come and watch him coach for a soccer team. She

  • User post: Was it all a wake up call: Chris Brown and Rihanna

    I think most women have heard, "If they hit, walk away." Right? How many times has it been made apparent that if a man hits you once, he's bound to hit you again?

    What happens when both parties are into abuse though?

    Chris Brown was sentenced yesterday for the abuse he delivered to Rihanna hours before both were slated to perform at the 2009 Grammy's in February. His sentence consists of five years probation, six months of community service to be performed in Richmond, Virginia and ordered to stay away from his former girlfriend for the next five years. He must remain 100 yards away from Rihanna at all times unless at a music industry event were these terms may be harder to follow. The judge in the case, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg , told Chris Brown that violating these terms would result in imprisonment at the state level. He will serve his sentence in his home state of Virginia.

    During the trial it was made evident that these two had a turbulent relationship

  • User post: Do your kids get new lunch boxes every year?

    When I was growing up, my grandparents would take me back-to-school shopping every year. I would get new clothes, a new backpack, a new lunchbox and the necessary supplies to get me through the year. To me, this was normal. Granted I was an only child and taken shopping more than others but this was normal for me. My husband on the other hand would be taken to buy new school supplies but the backpack was reused until it was needed to be replaced and lunch was taken to school via brown bags or bought in the cafeteria.

    Our daughters are getting ready to head back to school in two weeks. We have been looking around at all of the newest bags and lunch boxes and getting excited the youngest is finally going to start school. I was all ready to buy the girls their new lunchboxes when hubby puts his foot down. He says the older two do not need lunch boxes because they got new lunchboxes last year.

    To me they look horrible. With brown stains that line the edges, trash is how they look to me.
