    Michelle Obama will travel to Liberia, Morocco and Spain with her teen daughters Malia and Sasha at the end of June to promote education for girls, one of her signature issues as the first lady of the United States, the White House said on Wednesday.

She will be joined by Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the White House said. Obama will be joined by actor Meryl Streep in Morocco...

    Milo Yiannopoulis is a colorful, rightishly-inclined journalist at Breitbart currently touring American college campuses as part of his "Dangerous Faggot Tour". Shortly before 7 pm PST, two dozen left-wing activists blockaded the lecture hall entrance, preventing the entry of over 500 people who had paid to attend the event. At De Paul University in Chicago last week, BLM charged the stage and forcibly grabbed the microphone, occupied the stage and put a stop to the event after De Paul University administrators told security and police to take no action to stop the disruption. UCLA students trapped inside the blockaded event...

But the movie also left us wanting a few things that we hoped would be available by 2015, like Marty’s bad-ass Nike self-lacing sneakers… …the iconic AF hoverboard… …and of course, the oh-so-cool looking Pepsi Perfect bottle. Well, Pepsi finally delivered and created Pepsi Perfect!!! According to USA Today, the limited-edition Pepsi Perfect (which is Pepsi made with REAL sugar)...

    Taylor Swift's latest music video is being battered by critics who claim it is racist and pandering to 'rich white fantasies' from a colonial era. The video for Wildest Dreams, which was revealed during the MTV VMA Awards coverage on Sunday, has a mainly white cast and revolves around two 1950s-era movie stars - played by Swift and Gran Torino actor Scott Eastwood - filming in Africa. There are only two black actors, who play soldiers, and they appear in the background. The mock film crew are white. Director Joseph Khan insists the video is a 'love story' and has...

    Toronto Sun ^ | July 30, 2015 | Postmedia Network
    Hopefully a group of unfortunate Boston Red Sox fans took their ball caps off in time. After being asked to rise for the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner, a sick – possibly inebriated – fan vomited over the second railing at Fenway Park while his buddies watched in amusement. The fan's puke plummeted multiple storeys before appearing to land on unsuspecting fans seated below. After one fan lost his lunch, the Red Sox went on to lose 9-2 to the visiting Chicago White Sox. Considering some stadium dustups happen as a result of spilt beer, we're guessing this didn't go...

    In his own words, Dave Chappelle is the Bigfoot of comedy; a rarely seen legend whose long absence from the stage has only secured his status. The stand-up, actor and writer, who found global success in the mid-2000s for his Comedy Central hit Chappelle’s Show, walked away from a $50million deal for a third season in 2006, after fame and showbiz politics began to weigh heavy on his shoulders. For the past nine years, he’s been a borderline recluse – living on a farm in Ohio, raising his children and doing the odd, unannounced stand-up gig in mobbed comedy clubs....

    Once again, KFC has shown how far it is willing to go to incorporate chicken into everything we eat. The company introduced the "Chizza" via social media in the Philippines early in July saying, "Thick crust, thin crust. Don't think about it. We have our chicken as the pizza crust." Yes, that's right. KFC's signature chicken is now a pizza crust. This is not the company's first foray into hybrid foods. In 2010, KFC offered the Double Down sandwich, a bacon and cheese sandwich with two pieces of fried chicken as the bread. And let's not forget earlier this year,...

For those of you who are unaware of the sex tape saga (what, too busy following the world news or something?), the 20-year-old admitted she filmed a “solo sex tape” and was then offered a million bucks from Vivid Entertainment for the distribution rights. Initially, she refused, saying that it was personal footage for her — and, presumably, husband Doug Hutchison’s — eyes only. She has since clarified her story, explaining to that...
