Cyndi Lauper flubs a line of 'The Star-Spangled Banner' at U.S. Open

It seems that tricky old “Star-Spangled Banner” has gotten the best of yet another pop star.

Before the semifinal match between Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki at the U.S. Open in New York City on Saturday, Cyndi Lauper sang the National Anthem, but the ’80s pop icon made a noticeable mistake during her rendition.(Paging Christina Aguilera!) Instead of the line, “O’er the ramparts we watch’d were so gallantly streaming” Lauper belted out, “O’er the ramparts, we watched as our flag was still streaming.” Listen below: READ FULL STORY

Whoops! Kelly Rowland accidentally unleashes her breasts during New Jersey concert

On Friday, Nicki Minaj turned some heads when her left nipple freed itself from the confines of her outfit  and said “Hello!” to a national television audience during a performance on Good Morning America.

While Kelly Rowland couldn’t technically have gone bigger (that’s just genetics), she certainly did go harder. During a peak moment at a concert in West Orange, New Jersey on Sunday, Rowland’s already-revealing top—shown above, while still (nominally) containing her assets—migrated up her chest and unleashed her twin commanders.

Rowland managed to bounce back and make a good-natured recovery, even going as far as joking about it on Titter (er, Twitter). “New Jersey crowd was amazing!! hope you enjoyed the show and didnt mind the peekaboo LOL!!! #kanyeshrug #stuffhappens,” she wrote.

Rowland is currently on tour in support of her recently-released album Here I Am, which contains her high-charting single “Motivation.” And with Minaj vanquished (a full pair always beats a single areola in Accidental Flasher Poker) and Janet Jackson in the rear view, Rowland is now the reigning wardrobe malfunction champion. The (braless) ball is in your court, Katy!

Morrissey compares Norway massacre to KFC, should probably stick to self-loathing

Oh Morrissey. Sometimes you just make it so hard to love you.

And we really want to! Your songs have gotten us through countless bad break-ups and rainy afternoons cleaning the apartment. Your work with the Smiths is legendary, and your solo career isn’t too shabby either (“Hairdresser On Fire” remains a favorite).

But you have a tendency to run your mouth at weird times, which is why we’re considering cutting ties with you after you compared the tragedy in Norway to the production of meat in fast food restaurants.

Justin Bieber gets tackled during fragrance unveiling in New York

Justin Bieber is diversified, which keeps the teen titan in the black but also apparently forces him to learn a little bit of jujitsu.

During an appearance at Macy’s in New York City to present his brand new fragrance (which is cryptically called Someday), he was accosted by a man who hopped a barricade outside the store.

According to the local New York ABC affiliate, Bieber was holding court inside the store but decided to head out onto the sidewalk to shake some hands and sign some autographs for the thousands of tweens who gathered to get a glimpse of the him but were denied entry into the store.

Bieber took a swing back at the man, who has not been identified, and was not hurt in the incident. UPDATE: According to new reports, the man in question was a plainclothes police officer who was attempting to help the singer and was restrained by Bieber’s bodyguards.

You can track the brief altercation in the video after the jump, but be warned that it’s taken from quite a distance (though it really captures the size of the crowd) and contains a lot of NSFW potty-mouthed narration from the knuckle-headed videographers.

Panic! at the Disco frontman Brendon Urie breaks ankle onstage, still finishes the show: Watch the video here

No one can ever say that Panic! at the Disco singer Brendon Urie isn’t hardcore.

During a concert on Sunday night in Pompano Beach, Florida, Urie came down hard in the midst of a typically manic performance and managed to break his ankle.

While still onstage, he removed his boot and sock to assess the damage; a giant carbuncle had already formed. “What does this mean?” he asked the crowd between songs. “There’s like a softball in my foot.”

Luckily, fans caught the whole thing on tape, which you can check out the slightly gruesome video below:

Avril Lavigne goes on swearing tirade at Tampa Bay Rays baseball game: Watch the video here

It’s hard being the Tampa Bay Rays. The team is currently a game and a half out of first place in Major League Baseball’s toughest division, but they play in a terrible stadium that nobody really goes to anyway. And now, they’ve got an Avril problem.

On Saturday (May 28), after the team took a late-game thumping from the Cleveland Indians, the crowd was treated to a concert by Ms. Lavigne as a part of their summer concert series, which also features the likes of Miranda Lambert, Miranda Cosgrove, Goo Goo Dolls and REO Speedwagon.

Apparently, there were some technical difficulties at the top of the show, which lead to Lavigne dropping the F-bomb and several other choice words on a live microphone in front of an all-ages crowd, some of whom were reportedly booing in response to the sound difficulties. You can check out the NSFW audio after the jump.

Usher accidentally kicked in the face while seducing a fan on stage

Usher‘s OMG tour made its way through New York’s Madison Square Garden on Monday (Dec. 13). As I said in my review, it was filled with booms and pows from pyrotechnics and explosions. But there was one bang received that Usher totally didn’t expect when brought a fan on stage to sing “Trading Places.”  Excited, she was eager to get close to the R&B stud. Seemingly living out a dream, she wrapped her legs around him during their hug and then the two slow danced. But things got a little rough after he led her to the couch.

She started off lying on his chest as he sang into her ear and pecked her on the cheek. Then as he prepared to cap off the song–just eight words away from the end–she sprouted up. Attempting to straddle Usher, she whipped her leg up and almost across him. Her heeled shoe caught Usher’s face before it got there, though. Ouch. Gasps filled the Garden. Embarrassed and so very sorry, she immediately apologized. The star took it all in stride. “We play rough in the bed,” he joked. “We kick each other in the face and all kind of good stuff.” They hugged and that was that.

Check out the video below. Things go south around the 9:15 mark.

I’ve seen fans try some bold stuff at shows before but this is by far the most awkward moment I’ve laid eyes on. Can you think of any you’ve seen in the past? What would you have done had you been in that position? Let us know.

will.i.am attacked online for 'blackface' makeup at VMAs pre-show, hits Twitter to defend himself

will-i-amImage Credit: Kevin Mazur/WireImage.comKanye and Taylor weren’t the only talking pieces after last night’s VMAs. Black Eyed Peas leading man will.i.am also sparked up a bit of controversy when he performed alongside rapper Nicki Minaj during the pre-show. Though not purposefully, the eccentric rapper and producer known for his futuristic costumes ticked off some of his fans after wearing an all black leather outfit and matching black makeup all over his face.

Instantly the Twitterverse hopped on their computers and smartphones to cry foul, comparing his makeup to the racist 19th century blackface minstrel shows. When Will caught wind of the criticism, he responded through his Twitter account to defend his costume choice.

“1st. just because I where all black including head mask as expression and emphasize my outfit, it shouldn’t be looked at as racial…,” he tweeted. “Let go of the past. there are far more important things 2 bark about. (Jobs, health, education) not a black man wearing all black everything,” he followed. Then after noticing that people were still attacking him, he asked, “Are you guys serious? my outfit set “black people back 100 yrs” choose your twits wisely. no education sets people back, no jobs, bad health.”

Personally, I think these accusations are nuts. In the past Will has participated in various causes for uplifting black people–really, all people. He was one of the first artists to campaign, promote, and support Barack Obama’s presidential run years ago and frequently returns the impoverished East Los Angeles neighborhood he grew up in to speak to its children. And let me not forget to mention that he does all of this philanthropic work during breaks from making huge pop records that boast positive messages.

If there’s anything that Will’s guilty of, it’s giving people the benefit of the doubt and hoping that his costume would be seen simply as interesting, fun, and artsy. I, for one, knew the peanut gallery would think otherwise. I can’t say I loved his makeup. Will probably should have known that more than a few people would be peeved and nixed it. But I’m pretty sure that there was nothing malicious behind the concept.

What do you think? Was Will’s makeup a slap in the face to African Americans or just an eccentric’s mistake? Sound off in the comments below.

Kanye West's lone Twitter follow bails, says no thanks to media attention

kanye-westImage Credit: Eric Ryan/Getty ImagesThe Flashing Lights of fame are not for him. When 19-year-old Steven Holmes found out that mega-star rhymer Kanye West was following him on Twitter after asking the extravagant rapper how he cleans his row of diamond teeth, the Nottingham, England native was ecstatic.

“Holy s***, bro,” Holmes tweeted West on July 31. “Thanks for following!” It was even more special because he, a regular college kid, was the only person West picked to follow. Kanye comedically replied to Holmes’ appreciation writing, “You are the chosen one dun dun dun dun.”

But inundated with requests for interviews and constantly probed by jealous peers on Twitter, Holmes’ fun times in the spotlight quickly fizzled. After expressing his displeasure with his 15 minutes in an interview with the Coventry Telegraph, Holmes tweeted, “I won’t be speaking to any more press/journalists.”

Now, about a week since that tweet, it appears that his wild ride on the fame train has come to an end. West, apparently responding to Holmes’ wishes, is no longer following him. No recent dialogue to Holmes appears to exist on West’s page. But seemingly responding to a sincere apology West tweeted him this morning, Holmes replied to West saying, “No problem mate. It was just surreal that’s all. Sorry I haven’t checked my twitter out for a while. Cheers.”

Who do you think West will follow next? Would you be able or even want the attention and fame that comes along with being followed by a star? Let us know.

George Michael arrested after driving into London store

george-michaelImage Credit: Paul Kane/Getty ImagesFor the seventh time, 47-year-old former pop star George Michael was arrested for a driving-related wrong, BBC News reports. After police got reports that his Range Rover had crashed into a Snappy Snaps shop in London following his attendance at London’s gay pride parade, he was taken into custody at a north London police station under suspicion of being unfit to drive. Michael posted bail and will return in August for a court date.

Michael just regained his driving privileges last year. They were suspended in 2007 for two years for driving while unfit due to drugs. He was accused of driving into three parked cars and driving off without first telling the cars’ owners.
