This video, put together by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, is a compilation of footage of a protest-turned-ugly outside an Orange County fundraiser held by the Islamic Circle of North American Relief USA. The group was hoping raising money for local women’s shelters and to fight homelessness, but the attendance of two “controversial speakers” drew several hundred protesters.
This time, the questions come from Watoto From The Nile, a pair of 9- and10-year-old rappers whose song and corresponding video “Letter To Lil’ Wayne” are just that—an open letter to Lil’ Wayne, asking the sizzurp-swilling, curse-word-spewing, women-demeaning rapper to address the objectionable content in his music. Is it a good song? Not really.
This bit from Jimmy Kimmel’s post-Oscars special is already a couple of days old, but it’s too good to pass up. It’s a parody of Best Picture-winner The King’s Speech, and features Mike Tyson teaching former President George W. Bush how to speak better.
The Colombian soccer player, a defender for Deportivo Pereira, kicked an injured owl when it landed on the pitch during a match against Atletico Junior of Barranquilla. The owl, it turns out, is Atletico Junior’s mascot, and was hurt when it flew onto the field and was struck by a ball.
Much like the singular theme of her entire anti-Nicki stance, the premise of Carbon Copy is that Nicki is a swagger-jacker. A series of (poorly edited) montages and audio clips is supposed to demonstrate just how much Nicki has been influenced by Kim, both in her raps and her style. Duh.

This woman’s son is doing poorly in school—like, 1.22 GPA poorly—and she simply isn’t having it. When confiscating his phone and “other things” didn’t work, she decided to try something new: embarrass him, by putting him on a street corner with a “Honk If I Need Education” sign.
This 5-year-old girl has her head on straight. While many of her classmates are dreaming of being scooped up by princes (thanks for nothing, Disney), she says she won’t marry you until she has a job. And she means it. You don’t wanna wait for her? Too bad. She’ll find another man.
Minutes after “All of the Lights” hit VEVO, Twitter (and Gchat and Facebook and YouTube and the blogosphere) picked up on, to put it euphemistically, similarities between some parts of West’s video and the opening titles to Gaspar Noé’s award-winning, anxiety-inducing psychothriller Enter the Void.
British entertainment channel SkyOne commissioned creative agency Devilfish to create a real-life version of the iconic Simpsons intro last year. And it’s pretty spot-on!
