It was announced this week that Pepsi and Beyoncé have become “global partners.” What that means (other than sounding like a “Risk” alliance) is that Beyoncé is getting $50 million to do a bunch of Pepsi stuff — including having her face on Pepsi cans. We figured there must have been other candidates for the job — and luckily, we discovered some of the other celebs Pepsi considered for the can-treatment before they settled on Beyoncé!

Remember in 2009 when Chris Brown viciously beat his girlfriend Rihanna into a bloody pulp? You do? Well then, you should probably tell Rihanna — because it seems like she’s forgotten all about it.
Over the weekend, “Gangnam Style” by South Korean pop star PSY became YouTube’s most viewed video of all time, taking the #1 spot from “Baby” by Justin Bieber. Unseating Beebs is HUGE news — since it proves that Canada isn’t the only foreign country that can export an annoying song by a stupidly-dressed, prancing moron with ridiculous hair.
"Father O' Flannity's Hot Tub Confessions" is by Keith Knight! Click the comic to make it bigger.
During his performance on Saturday, Justin Bieber puked out his Canadian guts all over the stage. Suffice to say, the copious barf was the best thing to ever come out of his mouth during a concert. Bieber claimed that his ralphing was caused by drinking too much milk (just how wholesome is this weiner?!?) — but it got us wondering if there was a way for Biebs to turn this unfortunate event into a career boost!
Oh what a night! Not only is Barack Obama accepting the nomination at the Democratic Nation Convention, but the MTV Video Music Awards is also on! We don’t know which boring televised event to ignore first! But just because we’re not watching, that doesn’t mean we’re not paying attention — which is how we came to notice these…
From Puff Daddy (P. Diddy, Diddy) to Ol’ Dirty Bastard (Dirt McGirt, Big Baby Jesus, Lionel P. Fancypants), there is a long tradition of rappers changing their names for no particular reason. But it was still a shock to learn earlier this week that Snoop Dogg had changed his name to “Snoop Lion” — especially since he did it at the urging of a Jamaican priest, and from now on will perform only reggae, not hip hop. The whole thing is so dramatic and bizarre that it’s worthy of its own Broadway musical!
The Jackson Family has been through a lot. First Grandma Katherine went missing. Then she turned up. But she wound up losing custody of Michael’s three kids. And all the uncles and aunts are fighting about who’d have custody. (Yes, even Tito!) And Michael’s kids were tweeting accusations and complaints about the whole mess. At this point, the Jackson who’s in the best shape may be Michael! Anyway, all this family drama got us thinking about another ridiculous family that’s been in the news lately.
