According to a report from DNAinfo's Murray Weiss, the NYPD is investigating social media death threats against cops from alleged gang members who are apparently promising to turn tonight's New Year's Eve celebrations into "Kill a Pig Night."

Dan Bilzerian, a millionaire and avowed asshole with more than 5 million Instagram followers, was arrested at LAX Tuesday, and was being held without bail as of late Tuesday night.

Alongside your selfies and sunsets, beneath your puppy pics and above your cat closeups, there exists a world where the extraordinary and ordinary commingle. A world where princes are treated like paupers and paupers act like princes.

Last night, the pop star-cum-provocateur arrived at Alexander Wang's super secret New York Fashion Week after-party in Bushwick naked from the waist up, save for a set of tasseled ice cream cone pasties and a pair of plastic pill covered cat-eye sunglasses (see above).

There is perhaps no better microcosm of how easily the internet can throw together seemingly disparate images and have them make total sense than the Transportation Security Administration's Instagram account, where photos of confiscated weapons and weed are juxtaposed with snapshots of the adorable dogs that find them.
Jen Selter, the fitness model who became a star on Instagram because of all the work she's put into developing her personal brand—which, in this case, is a euphemism for "butt"— celebrated her 21st birthday in Vegas over the weekend.

When did Reese Witherspoon become America's sweetheart? Was it when the nation flocked to see her starring turn in Legally Blonde, a few months before 9/11?
