It’s Monday, although I wouldn’t know it. I’m traveling for work and working weekends, so basically I have no idea what day it is since they are all kind of blurring together. It’s not all bad, though – I’m in a nice hotel with a pool, a decent gym, and a fantastic free breakfast. So while I’ve been stuffing my face with gratis oatmeal, I definitely had it better than some people this weekend.
Not sure exactly who Coolio is? Well, let me remind you:
Anyway, the 90s rapper had a pretty bad weekend when he was arrested at LAX for possession of a firearm by a felon. Coolio and his entourage (he still has an entourage?) were flagged at TSA when a bag belonging to the group was found to contain a loaded gun. According to TMZ:
Coolio’s bodyguard first claimed possession of the bag, a quick investigation determined other items inside it belonged to Coolio. Cops say the rapper had already boarded a plane and they took him off to join his guard for questioning. We’re told Coolio fessed up to owning the bag and it was determined the gun had been stolen.
The artist formerly known as Artis Leon Ivey, Jr. was booked on Sunday afternoon – no word on if he has made bail.
Even more old school than Coolio? Corey Feldman, star of the 80s classics The Goonies, Stand By Me, The Lost Boys and Gremlins. Since his star has dimmed, Feldman has apparently turned to a music career, and his performance on the Today show Friday earned some disastrous reviews.
Feldman sang a song from his Angelic 2 the Core on the morning show, and the feedback wasn’t great. In a since-deleted video with one of his “Corey’s Angels,” Feldman emotionally addressed the backlash from the performance. According to People, Feldman rambled on in the video, saying:
We just wanted to tell everybody that, like, it’s been really painful. We put ourselves out there and we did the best that we could. And, like, I’ve never had such mean things said about me. Like constantly.
All we can say is that we tried really hard. Because we love our fans and we just wanted to give them the best show that we could. But we don’t deserve … these things that are said about us are awful.
It was a song, okay? It wasn’t that weird. I’m sorry if it’s not good enough for you, but you don’t have to beat us up. I just want to say that, like, why is it okay to, like, publicly shame us? … I don’t understand …
It’s, like, not PC to, like, say somebody is fat or somebody is white or somebody is black or somebody is yellow or green or if they have a short leg or if they have a missing finger. Like we can’t talk about these things. But it’s okay to bash Corey Feldman and the Angels.
We can’t get out of bed right now. We’re petrified to even go out … And I’m sorry, but we just wanted the world to know, like, we’re really freaked out over this and it’s really not fair.
Um… okay, then.
Emily Wagoner is a teenager in Beaverton, Oregon who just wanted to enjoy a bag of salt and vinegar chips. But she got a little bit more than she bargained for when she discovered that the chips she was munching on were covered in dead bugs.
Emily purchased the offending bag at a Pita Pit restaurant and thought that the black flecks on her chips were simply seasoning. Upon closer inspection, she discovered they were ants. Dead ants.
To add insult to injury, after seeing Emily’s tweet (which has now gone viral), the Pita Pit Twitter account contacted her and offered her a $50 gift card. Like, what? THE GIRL ATE BUGS, I think you can do better, Pita Pit. Emily thought so too, and basically told the Pita Pit to shove their fifty dollar gift card where the sun don’t shine. She’s still waiting for a response probably while puking her brains out repeatedly.
Once a dude gets a rep as a playboy, it can be a bit hard to overcome. Probably even more so when a woman livestreams one of your “dates” over Facebook.
A woman from Chicago, Kayla Hutch, matched with Emad Perotta on Tinder and agreed to go on a boating date with him. But when she boarded the boat, Perotta had not only invited some friends along – but also 15 other women. So she did want any normal woman would do – she livestreamed the whole fiasco to over 85,000 viewers.
Hutch confirmed with some of the other women that they too had met Perotta on Tinder and laughed at how awkward it was when he started making out with one of his guests in front of them. So at least she maybe made some friends, while Perotta probably won’t be getting any more Tinder dates anytime soon.

It was every Pats’ fan worst nightmare to see this:
What. The. Fuck. It’s bad enough that the beloved TB12 is suspended on some trumped up charge by a power-hungry commissioner, but now the backup gets taken out by a guy named KIKO? And the only people we have left are some third-round pick from NC State or the guy who now plays receiver but used to be a quarterback in college? Fuck. Fuck. FUCK.
