Lady Gaga claims she has been having trouble being “over the top,” but her dress made of meat was nothing short of shock-worthy at the 2010 VMAs.

Her meat dress caught the attention of many, including vegetarian Ellen Degeneres. It turns out the Gaga’s outfit ruined the plans of several VMA attendees.

How was she not surrounded by flies?

His pals failed to pay the tab at the end of the night.

Rapper JAY-Z has found himself at the center of a New York club dispute over an outstanding $1,500 bill, after his pals were accused of failing to settle the debt.

The hip-hop mogul is said to have enjoyed a night out at the city’s M2 hotspot in Chelsea in February (09) with Atlantic Records executive Michael Kyser and Universal Music Group boss Shawn Costner.

M2 manager Dan Develin claims the group was handed a heavily discounted $1,500 bill at the end of the night but left without settling their tab. He tells New York Post gossip column PageSix, “Jay-Z ordered a bottle of Patron Platinum and some expensive champagne, and everything was going great.

The waitress has known him for five years, and he’s a good friend of Joey’s (owner Joey Morrissey), so we ended up comping a lot of their bill. “Kyser and Costner were making a big show of wanting to take Jay-Z out, so they started arguing over who got to pick up the check. Jay-Z ended up tipping the waitress $500 and going outside to wait.”

Develin alleges Costner’s credit card was declined and Keyser opted to pay the full total – but he claims the music executive left without authorizing the transaction and has subsequently failed to pay up. He adds, “Before we could get him to sign the receipt, he left the club. Of course, we still have his card, so we called up his office, and his assistant told us someone would come by to sign. Weeks went by, and no one ever did.

Finally, we got a call from Amex and were told that Kyser was disputing the charge. When we called him up again, his assistant said, ‘Oh, Michael says he doesn’t actually remember being there’ – which is crazy because we have his card and photos of him and Jay-Z.”

Owner Morrissey has voiced his hope that the matter can be resolved amicably, adding “We just want to settle this and be done without having to press charges”.

A spokesman for Jay-Z declined to comment.

Goodbye, Pizza Hut!!!!

the hut


In response to Pizza Hut’s decline in sales, a new branding strategy will simply deem the pizza chain, The Hut.

Times are tough and people don’t want to spend their money on junk food, so the company is trying to win back diners with a new menu, including all-natural multigrain pizza, lasagna, and wings.

Just because the crust has a few extra grains doesn’t discount that you are still eating pizza!!!!

The revitalization includes new packaging along with the name change.

“We’re also introducing another vocabulary word with Pizza Hut, which is ‘The Hut.’ That ties in nicely with (today’s) texting generation. As we expand our online and mobile businesses, ‘The Hut’ is the perfect icon for our mobile generation,” said Brian Niccol, Pizza Hut CMO.

Our mobile generation only cares if the food is good!!!

Why don’t they just focus on getting the pizza there in 30 minutes or less?!

red bull

Hong Kong officials have found traces of cocaine in cans of Red Bull, a few days after Taiwanese authorities confiscated close to 18,000 cases of the popular energy drink.

Officials at the Centre for Food Safety said a laboratory analysis found tiny amounts of the illegal drug in samples of “Red Bull Cola,” “Red Bull Sugar-free” and “Red Bull Energy Drink”, a spokesman said.

The drink has now been taken off the shelves of major supermarkets, the spokesman said in a statement issued late Monday. He added that the amount of cocaine found in the drinks posed little health danger.

Red Bull moved quickly to deny the findings and said independent tests on the same batch of drinks had found no traces of cocaine.

The Centre for Food Safety found traces of cocaine between 0.1 and 0.3 micrograms of the illegal drug per litre, the statement said.

You’ll be seeing less of her because she lost weight. In a recent interview Monique said, after reaching 262lbs, her husband told her, “Baby, that’s too much, I want you with me for a lifetime.” Monique lost 40lbs after cutting red meat from her diet and joining a gym, vowing to get down to 200 lbs. She says, “This was truly making the commitment to watch what I eat and commit to working out. I stopped eating red meat. I want to say to big people, ‘Let’s be healthy big people.’ Everybody can’t be a size 0… but let’s be healthy.”

He has been running around South Beach pulling the old dine and dash routine. After walking out on a $1000 tab at the Gansevoort, Dennis shows up the next night at a different restaurant inside the same hotel and tries to skip out without on $1,500. The scam didn’t work the second time because the manager noticed what was happening, nabbed the last few stragglers and held them hostage until the bill was paid. They had to call the cops and make several calls before Dennis would cough up the cash.
