You’ll never get invited to one of Justin Bieber’s house ragers, but if you do, don’t even think about live-tweeting it. The precocious singer will sue you to high heaven.
The 19-year-old is now making friends and acquaintances sign a waiver before entering his Calabasas, Calif., home. The waiver, obtained by TMZ, warns “under no circumstances will you divulge the details of you entering and being on the Property or engaging in the Activities by any means or through any media whatsoever, including without limitation, through photographs, video, blogging, texting, ‘Tweeting’ or posting any such information on any social media site.”
Among other concerns, guests are banned from bleating about the “physical health, or the philosophical, spiritual or other views or characteristics” of Bieber or anyone else associated with him.
The “activities” also cover what would appear to be bawdy parties. Just how rowdy do those shindigs get? Well, the waiver suggests activities carried out in the home are “potentially hazardous” and urges those who are not “medically able” or “properly trained” to avoid taking part.
It adds those activities carry “certain inherent risks that cannot be eliminated completely, ranging from minor injuries to catastrophic injuries, including death.” The waiver, of course, absolves Bieber and his associates of any liability.
Elite athletes see the world a little differently than most of us.
They see records to be broken, track lines to remain within, and rigid training programs that help them focus on the gold. Some have an even more defined worldview, as they snap images from their lives and share them using Instagram.
The photo-sharing community has tens of millions of ardent fans, and Olympians are not immune from its charms. We have to wonder how many of those included on our list of top Olympic IGers (as Instagram users are known) are hoping for a new filter with a golden sheen.
Not even all the money in the world can protect celebrities from the harsh vitriol being lobbed at them on Twitter. So since they can’t stop it, might as well join in.
Jimmy Kimmel gathered eleven celebrities to read tweets directed at them from Twitter users on his show Tuesday night. The segment, which he’s previously done in March, includes appearances by Justin Bieber, Zooey Deschanel, David Spade, Snooki, and James Van der Beek (to name a few). (cont.)
Take Totally Looks Like, add some simple algebra, and you’ve got Facemath: the new facial recognition craze that’s traversing the Web.
For those of us without Prosopagnosia (that’s “facial blindness” for those of you without Wikipedia access), Facemath does unbelievable things with the nose-eyes-mouth area and will convince you that basically everyone is related.
While launched in May, the Tumblr has seen a recent spike in activity, posting a total of 14 visual mash-ups, which have received hundreds of thousands of likes reblogs.
“When a drunk Andy Dick came to visit” by redditor eyalush.
“He just walked into my house and sat down. We were all kind of stunned and just rolled with it. He lives up to his name. He stayed for a couple hours, and spent most of the time being a complete dick, flicking off some of my friends, and trying to kiss others. He complained about life, and seemed pretty miserable, though there were definitely hilarious moments. He told us a story about how he broke his ankle a little while ago. He shimmied up a wooden pole on a dare which snapped. We fed him and gave him water and sent him on his way to the bar, but not before stumbling into my bathroom and making a pretty messy attempt at taking a piss with the door opened. He also removed some of the chewed up chicken from his mouth and slammed it onto my table.”
