Lady Gaga Declared Herself "Queen of the Universe"
Lady Gaga has been sued by her former personal assistant, Jennifer O'Neill, for allegedly owing more than 7,000 hours worth of overtime -- and the pop star is defending herself with real flair, naturally. The Daily Mail obtained court documents that Gaga filed, including a 200-plus-page witness statement, in which the singer explains why her workers receive "perks" like "eating caviar" and "partying with Terry Richardson all night" as opposed to cash. The most fascinating part of the statement: Mother Monster calls O'Neil a "disgusting human" for suing her, and refers to herself as "Queen of the Universe." In official court documents. In her defense, of course, sometimes that doesn't seem so far from the truth.
The Biebs Terrified the Internet
Justin Bieber scared the pocket protectors off the Internet’s comic book fans this weekend when he Instagrammed a picture of himself with a watermarked script for the upcoming Batman vs. Superman film. The caption was one simple hashtag question: #Robin?
Needless to say, the idea that the teen star would be a part of the upcoming film sent the web into a frenzy (though, for the record, this is the same group of people who were furious about Heath Ledger’s casting as The Joker). Fortunately for geeks everywhere, the pic was all part of a prank put on by the people over at Funny or Die.
Kanye West Charged For Attacking Cameraman
Kanye West has officially been charged with battery and attempted grand theft auto after an incident in July involving a photographer at LAX. Each of the charges carries a maximum sentence of six months in jail, though it's unlikely Kanye would actually do any jail time for the incident. Still, not your best move, Yeezus.
Ohio University's Marching 110 Covered "The Fox"
Even if you didn't go to college in the Midwest, you may recognize the Ohio University Marching 110 from their viral "Gangnam Style" video, or their habit of taking on Internet videos without fear. During their matchup against Marshall over the weekend, they debuted their cover of Ylvis' "The Fox," arguably the greatest musical masterpiece of the summer. The performance is complete with booty shaking, masterful choreography, and some up-in-the-action camera shots. Check it out here:
A Homeless Man Found $40,000 -- And Handed It Over to Police
In what was clearly the biggest Good Samaritan act of the weekend, a homeless man who found a backpack containing $2,400 in cash and $39,500 in traveler’s checks turned it over to police in front of a TJ Maxx store near Dorchester, Mass. The backpack also contained a Republic of China passport identifying the owner, an employee at a nearby Best Buy, who had his items returned to him. No word on why a Best Buy employee was walking around with $40,000 in a backpack, but consider our faith in humanity restored. Well done to you, sir, and we hope there's some sort of reward!
Some Frozen Whipped Cream Turned Humans Into Dragons
In what was clearly our most important scientific discovery of the weekend, this video shows that when people eat whipped cream that has been frozen with liquid nitrogen, it causes smoke to blow out their nose like Puff the Magic Dragon. Check it out:
BRB, going to buy some liquid nitrogen.
