As I write this, I’m watching Britney Spears slay the opening to the BillBoard Music Awards. Even though it was pretty obvious that she was lip-syncing her pretty little heart out, Brit-Brit pretty much crushed Sunday night.
But while Britney had a pretty good weekend, there are a few people that didn’t.
Last week was not a good one for Mr. Disick. First, he got caught blatantly posting a sponsored Instagram when he accidentally included the posting instructions in his caption. Then the Kardashian ex had his home robbed when he was in France for the Cannes Film Festival.
And now, to make matters worse, it looks like whoever broke into Disick’s Hidden Hills, CA home was someone he knew. It’s being reported that (since there were no signs of forced entry) whoever took the items from the house was someone known to Scott. According to Perez Hilton, “We don’t know exactly what was taken from Lord Disick’s domicile, but we do know that law enforcement is claiming it’s watches and jewelry in ‘multiples worth a significant amount of money.'”
Wasn’t a good week to be the Lord, apparently. [via Perez Hilton]
This Dude In Moscow
All of us probably have something in our bedroom that we don’t want people to find. Whether in the old school porn collection in that box under the bed or a sex toy in the nightstand, what we have in our bedrooms stays in our bedrooms. Unless you put those items in your car…and they spill out in the middle of the street.
This dude was driving his moving truck in Moscow when a box fell off the truck. And of course, it couldn’t be his collection of literary classics or a few pairs of jeans. Instead, the box contains a bunch of sex toys that scattered all over the road. The poor bastard had to stop his car and make two trips to pick up the “flesh-coloured toys” as pedestrians looked on, and of course – someone busted out a phone and captured it all on film.
Note to self: next time I move, be sure to put the sex toy box in the front of the moving truck. [via The Daily Mail]
Honestly, I wasn’t sure if I even wanted to include this because, frankly, it’s just getting sad. But alas, here we go.
Manziel was at the Jewel Nightclub at the Aria resort in Las Vegas on Friday night, where Drake showed up for a surprise performance. As others in the club started to push forward toward the stage for the show, someone apparently shoved Manziel, who then decided an appropriate reaction was to slug the dude. Which seems like a super smart idea when you are out on bail and awaiting trial for allegedly beating your girlfriend.
Anyway, security at Jewel wasn’t having any of Manziel antics – he was booted from the club immediately after the punch was thrown. Sounds like Johnny’s starting to wear out his welcome, in some places at least. [via TMZ]
People that wear a Fitbit are a little bit of a cult – one that I am 100% a member of. I depend on that little piece of wearable technology to track my steps and tell me how many calories I’ve burned that day. And now it turns out that it may all be one big fat lie.
A new class-action lawsuit claims that the PurePulse technology used in the Surge, Blaze and Charge HR versions of the device does not correctly measure one’s heart rate. In fact, a study funded by the lawyers who brought the lawsuit and performed by scientists at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona “found that the devices were off by, on average, 20 beats per minute during moderate- to high-intensity exercise,” according to CNN. The lawsuit alleges this miscalculation is particularly dangerous for those people who rely on their FitBit to track heart rate for medical reasons.
I don’t use my FitBit for medical reasons, but still…I feel so betrayed. I’m not sure what this means…but going forward, I’m just going to assume that I’ve burned like 500 more calories a day than FitBit says. That’s fair, right? [via CNN]
Confession: I have no idea what Hamilton actually is, aside from a show that people seem to be willing to sell their first-born to see. One such person is frequent Shark Tank guest Chris Sacca, who had tickets to the show on Thursday night…or so he thought.
That evening, Sacca showed up at the Richard Rodgers Theatre to see the show with his wife, only to be told that the tickets that he had purchased on Stubhub were fakes. When the ticket taker and the manager said that there wasn’t anything they could do, Sacca then busted out the “Do you know who I am?” line and, according to a witness, “He said he was a ‘shark’ on ‘Shark Tank’ and warned it wouldn’t be good if they couldn’t get in.” After ranting for about 20 minutes, Sacca finally gave up.
So not only did Sacca not get to see the hottest show in town, but he fell for a fake ticket scam? Sounds less like a shark and more like a sucker to me. [via New York Post] .
