Twitter suggested today that I follow @KristinDaily, an account associated with the Kristin Cavallari fan site KristinCavallariDaily.com. Makes sense, I guess. Upon further inspection, however, it appears that neither @KristinDaily nor KristinCavallariDaily.com is actually updated on a daily basis. KristinCavallariDaily.com even lists Kristin’s age as 27—one year younger than her widely reported age of 28. Either KristinCavallariDaily.com is on a campaign to convince the public that Kristin is younger than her reported age, or it’s still catching up on some updates from last year. All this is to say: weak. No, I will not follow @KristinDaily. “Kristin Daily” is right here.
Fans drinking vodka sodas instead of Monster tallboys. Matching suits and mirror-encrusted guitars. A funky man who addresses adult humans as "children," like he thinks he's Prince or something. Vocoders, syncopation, silly glasses. This is the deeply strange universe presented in Nickelback's new video, and fans are not happy about it.
Ariana Grande's most festive fan was placed on psychiatric hold last week after he showed up at her record label headquarters in New York City wearing a Santa suit. Perhaps inspired by Ariana's new single "Santa Tell Me," 29-year-old Tim Normandin ignored warnings from cops and tried to meet the star.
Australian rapper Iggy Azalea says she's had to take on new security measures for her concerts because fans think it's funny to try to finger her while she performs.
Tina Turner is ripening into an excellent eccentric old lady.
The New York Times today alerted its readers to the urgent political news that Bill de Blasio, the current maybe co-front-runner for the Democratic mayoral nomination, identifies as a fan of the Boston Red Sox. According to the paper, tradition appears to require that the city's chief executive be a fan of the Yankees. Javier C. Hernandez writes:
Last night in Montreal, Beyoncé's natural, honey blonde hair got stuck in a giant fan while she was performing her Grammy Award-winning single "Halo" in front of 21,000 people. The result is some truly hilarious video (from varying angles and distances) of Beyoncé sitting glumly on stage belting out a love song while a team of giant men attempt to rip her hair out of a fan.
Yesterday was a big day for anarchists. During May Day protests they smashed windows in Seattle, got arrested in Cleveland for trying to blow up a bridge and arrested in New York for running around the Lower East Side. But that's just a normal Red Sox post-game celebration. Who does chaos best: Protesters or sports fans? Let's investigate.
