Vox.com, a website run by fans of real rap, lashed out this afternoon against an Iggy Azalea Twitter account that had claimed the whitebread rapper and her gingerbread friend Macklemore were the king and queens of rap. Only problem: the Vox writer believed the account belonged to the real Iggy Azalea.
Back before Bryan Cranston was winning Emmys and making out with Julia Louis Dreyfus, he was hawking hemorrhoid cream. Brad Pitt once tried his hardest to make eating Pringles look like a sexy, fun thing to do. Now you can watch those auspicious debuts and more in this "Before They Were Famous" supercut.
Last week, CW reality star and Maxim UK pin-up Devorah Rose tweeted a suggestive message about Salman Rushdie. Asked about his relationship with Devorah, Rushdie told Page Six that he was "mortified" to be connected to her. When Devorah heard that, she went nuclear and gave copies of her Facebook interactions with Rushdie to several gossip outlets.
Here's Texas Governor Rick Perry, distinguishing himself once again at Wednesday night's CNBC debate:
Filthy rich Hollywood power players, they're just like us: totally embarrassing dancers at weddings.
Your crush on Prince Harry is about to end. At a nightclub in Croatia, he was videotaped climbing onto a banquette and performing a catastrophic sideways shuffle dance, culminating in a loss of balance and a dive into the swimming pool behind him.

Remember when, before iPods, et al. became ubiquitous, record stores—like the Virgin Megastore in Chicago, for example—had those cool listening stations that allowed you to jam out to your favorite tune in public? Those were the days.
Like a drill sergeant wearing down a soldier (or a poor schlep on Maury Povich), this man completely dresses down a 20-year-old kid who has been skating on his store front and destroying his bushes. Get off my lawn!
Vanessa Bayer is one of Saturday Night Live's new faces this season — and easily one of the most likable newbies in some time. This is why we're surprised to see this awkward "Dating on Demand" video featuring the comedian.
In the background of a live newsroom shot, this worker bee looks right at the camera... and decides to pick her nose. As if that wasn't bad enough, she then decides to eat the booger! Watch the embarrassing video inside.
New York magazine's daily online chats about the election are usually just mildly interesting, since the journalists involved tend to be overly polite to one another, because who knows who you're going to be sending a job application to someday? Even Gawker Media veterans and that Daily Kos maniac act all pleasant. But Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi has never been one for such fraternal niceties, and when nymag.com threw him a sparring partner from National Review, the predictably caustic lefty went to work with his fangs, at one point typing, "tell me you're not ashamed." It was awesome and just really uncomfortable at the same time. Highlights:
