The time has come! Pitbull is finally in the remote city of Kodiak Alaska, after being exiled by an Internet campaign. As much as we like to give the guy a hard time, you have to admit Pitbull was a good sport about it. He went to Kodiak, received a key to the city from Mayor Pat Branson and tweeted a photo of him holding a child alongside Alutiiq dancers. The tweet said: ”Thank U Kodiak … I am honoured, truly.” Best of all, he looked incredibly awkward watching Alutiiq Dancers performing a traditional routine.
At least we’re assured he’s safe from the bears that ravage the land, considering he received a care package yesterday from Wal-Mart that included bear repellant spray and bear bells used by hikers to make noise.
If you don’t know the back story, Armando Christian Perez (Pitbull) agreed to visit the Wal-Mart that got the most likes on its Facebook page. Writer/troller extraordinaire David Thorpe thought it would be HILARZ if Pitbull was forced to go to a remote location (because it is hilarious), so everyone followed suit.
But even Thorpe was impressed as he tweeted: ”Just met Pitbull. He shook my hand and said ‘Keep bulls***ting. Next thing you know we’ll be on the moon.” Okay, that’s a good line. Pitbull deserves some credit, am I right?
Watch it here:
It’s arguable whether his fans or haters are sending him there, but Pitbull is being exiled to a REMOTE bear-infested Island of Alaska, called Kodiak, for a personal appearance.
Wal-Mart started an online contest on its Facebook page a while ago: whichever store got the most likes would be
subjected to graced with a visit from Armando Christian Perez (that’s Pitbull).
Meanwhile, a writer for The Boston Phoenix named David Thorpe thought it would be HILARZ to send Pitbull to the most remote Wal-Mart possible. ENTER KODIAK. Through Facebook, Twitter (#exilePitbull) and various media outlets Thorpe encouraged people to “like” the Wal-Mart in Kodiak, earning it 70,000 “likes,” even though the population of the Island is just over 13,000.
To Pitbull’s credit, he kept a good sense of humor over the whole incident and tweeted:
Pitbull even uploaded a YouTube video from his tour leg in Madrid, addressing the prankster. ”You gotta understand that I would go anywhere in the world for my fans,” he said. In the end the joke is on Thorpe because Pitbull invited him along for the appearance in Kodiak… and that’s a LONG flight.
Just when you think you’ve seen the last of the Palins, at least until 2012, 20-year-old Bristol churns out 304 pages of pure, uncensored memoir!
Yes, that’s right. The queen of all teen moms has officially signed a deal with publishing house William Morrow & Co. to release the “Untitled Bristol Palin Memoir,” a riveting tale of televised dancing competitions, evil exes posing in Playgirl, and having a child named after an uncommonly specific verb.
The book is listed on Amazon and can be preordered to ensure you get your very own copy for the June 21st release.
Memoirs are written for one of four reasons: to quell nostalgia, to boost egos, to stuff pockets, or to celebrate an important person’s life. We wonder what Bristol’s motivation was… hmm…
If you haven’t already heard, Sarah Palin has a new reality show. I can’t imagine what qualifies as reality in the Palin family, but hey, I guess that’s why they have a show.
Shockingly, some people are finding the TLC-based program sort of, well, how do I put this…UNBELIEVABLY, PAINFULLY, AGONIZINGLY BAD. So when a couple of students who went to school with the Palin daughters decided to voice their opinions on Facebook, Willow Palin did not take to kindly to the criticism.
According to TMZ.com, a boy named Tre updated his Facebook during Sunday night’s episode to say “Sarah Palin’s Alaska, failing so hard right now.”
Willow Palin responded, “Haha your so gay. I have no idea who you are, But what I’ve seen pictures of, your disgusting…my sister had a kid and is still hot,” and then followed that comment with “Tre stfu. Your such a f*ggot”.
Big sister Bristol then got in on the action until a “message-board war erupted”. Sounds dangerous.
Willow has to remember that mommy being on a television show is going to garner its fair share of negative attention and she can’t be dishing out insults like plates of venison, or whatever they dish out up there.
Perhaps even more alarming than how freely Willow Palin uses such hateful words is her lack of understanding the difference between “your” and “you’re”.
Here at andPOP, we are always on the douchebag lookout. For a long time, we always believed that Jon Gosselin was the leader in douchebaggery. However, Alaska native Levi Johnston has now been crowned “King Douchebag.”
This is a momentous event and Levi didn’t earn this award easily. What put him over the top was the recent news that he fathered another woman’s baby, and most importantly, that he now has his own reality TV show.
TMZ reports that over the weekend, Johnston signed a deal to star in a reality TV show about himself. The program will start in L.A. and follow Johnston as he goes back to Alaska. There is still no word on the exact format and which network has picked up the show.
Good work Levi, you’re a shining example for the kids!
Reliable sources tell Perezhilton.com that Johnston plans on pitching his own Alaska reality show, which is being dubbed “Entourage on Ice.” The tentative name of the show is Levi Johnston’s Last Frontier, which is expected to be Johnston hanging out on the ice drinking beers with his buddies.
His pitch meetings start this week.
Variety is reporting that Discovery has bought Palin’s series for excess of $1 Million per episode. Hosted by the former Governor, the series will focus on the characters, traditions, and attractions of Alaska.
Pistachio Nuts, that is.
Levi Johnston made his television commercial debut this week as part of Wonderful Pistachio’s “Get Crackin’” campaign. The Paramount Farms campaign is also a first-time appearance for Levi’s co-stars, pistachio nuts.
“Get Crackin’” is the first-ever TV campaign for pistachios, and features eight celebrities demonstrating how to crack open a pistachio, each in their own unique way.
Featured celebrities on “Get Crackin’” include Miss South Carolina beauty pageant contestant and YouTube sensation Lauren Caitlin Upton, America’s Next Top Model beauty Adrianne Curry with Brady Bunch alum husband Christopher Knight, Jackass prankster Wee-Man, The Sopranos’ Vincent Pastore, Olympic swimmer and record-setting medalist Dara Torres, a real-life dominatrix, the Denny quintuplets, and, of course, father of Sarah Palin’s grandchild, Levi Johnston.
Levi Johnston, father of Bristol Palin’s son, said he would consider modelling nude if the opportunity presented itself, reports Perez Hilton.
“It depends on the money, man,” said Johnston. “It’s gotta be right for that.”
When asked his thoughts on his “gay pin-up boy” status, he said, “I think it’s great, man. Um, I just like my fans. Just another person.”
