WTF?! Tidbits: The Latest Pop Culture Craziness (1/9/2013)


Well, there’s one American Idol winner who’s not supportive of the gays. Fantasia Barrino took to Instagram to lash out at people who judge her while gay marriage and marijuana become legal in the country. Her publicist says that the controversial post is being taken out of context, citing her performance at various LGBT events. So basically, Fantasia hates the gays unless they’re paying her. Got it.

In other Idol winner-related news, Season 8 winner Kris Allen had some good and bad news on New Year’s Day. The bad first: he and his wife were involved in a head-on collision that totaled their car and left Kris with a broken arm. The good news: the couple are expecting their first child together. The adorable little Idol winner makes a stop at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur on Jan. 20 as part of his (now appropriately named) Out Alive Tour.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are expecting a baby, because the Kardashians will do just about anything to stay in the public eye.

A paparazzo following Justin Bieber on New Year’s Eve was struck and killed by an oncoming car. This is why it’s a good idea to avoid those fanatical Beliebers.

Just days before Oscar nomination voting closes, Jennifer Lawrence’s cover story for Vanity Fair came out with a line where the Oscar frontrunner said that acting is “stupid” in comparison to other jobs. As much as we love JLaw’s candor, she may want to bite her tongue just a bit until she gets that statue in February.

On- and off-again couple Rihanna and Chris Brown have been spotted together multiple times over the past few weeks, including at a Lakers game for Christmas. In related news, my guess for biggest continued coverage for a tabloid story in 2013 will be Rihanna’s descent into a Britney Blackout-era tailspin.

We may have loved Les Misérables, but not everyone agrees. That includes Adam Lambert, who took to Twitter to talk about how the “score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers.” As it turns out, one of the actors agrees. Russell Crowe, who’s taken the bulk of criticism for his role, tweeted to a fan “I don’t disagree with Adam.” We all agree about one thing – Crowe’s performance would almost definitely work better if it had been recorded in a studio. Or with someone else in the role.

It’s no secret that the only thing that separates Kathy Griffin and the gay men who love her is the lack of a dick. Still, she got close to an area many gay men want on New Year’s Eve when she attempted to give her CNN co-host Anderson Cooper a kiss…on the crotch. Cue a line of jealous gay boys all over the country.
