Pink tribute artist Zoe Alexander loves her day job but decided to audition for The X-Factor UK to discover her own sound and identity. Her audition was going pretty well — she was chirpy and the judges loved her style. However, the panel thought her cover of Pink’s “So What” was too close to the original and gave her a second chance to put her own spin on a different song.
Unfortunately, Alexander blew her second song but didn’t take too kindly to the constructive criticism the judges gave her. Although they all voted no, they told her she could become a better artist if she took some time to discover her own sound. That’s when the tantrum started. Alexander was completely unprofessional. She not only fired off a false excuse (“You guys told me to sing Pink”) she abrasively threw her microphone offstage and pushed away a camera crew.
For some reason her dad decided to drag her back on stage (perhaps so she could apologize) but all girl did was swear, swear, swear. If the judges weren’t already confident in their decision I’m pretty sure Alexander’s bad attitude sealed it.

Sometimes I wonder if celebrities know that they don’t HAVE to keep the dramatics up 24/7. They do know they can stop putting on a show once the camera stopped rolling, right?
Let’s just say these celebrities know how to entertain me both on and off camera!
1) Mel Gibson
Cheesy joke time: here’s one star that puts the “mel” in melt down… The once ever so loveable hero of Lethal Weapon isn’t so loveable anymore. On a trip to Costa Rica last December, Gibson was recorded yelling at screenwriter Joe Eszterhaus. The recording starts off with Gibson yelling “Why don’t I have a first draft of “The Maccabees?” What the f**k have you been doing?” and then ends with Gibson yelling “Who wants to eat? Who the f**k wants to eat? Go have something to eat. Hurraaayyyyy!” Can you say bipolar much? Really Gibson, I remember when I was three years old and still used tantrums to get my way.
2) Chris Brown
Alright, Chris Brown doesn’t entertain me so much as he makes me gag. Not only does this star abuse woman but he now also abuses dressing rooms? Last year after he was interviewed about his relationship with Rihanna on the Today show, Chris took off his shirt stormed into his dressing room and trashed it; leaving shattered glass all over 43rd st and Broadway. You know what they say Chris if you can’t take the heat stay out of the kitchen. Read more…
We saw how his Kony2012 video became viral last week.
Now doing a complete 180, Invisible Children co-founder Jason Russell was arrested Thursday for allegedly masturbating and being drunk in public.
In an interview with TMZ, Ben Keesey, the CEO of Invisible Children, has since released a statement regarding Russell’s state.
“Jason Russell was unfortunately hospitalized yesterday suffering from exhaustion, dehydration, and malnutrition,” he said. ”He is now receiving medical care and is focused on getting better. The past two weeks have taken a severe emotional toll on all of us, Jason especially, and that toll manifested itself in an unfortunate incident yesterday.”
While it isn’t clear which side is true, TMZ has released a video of Russell in the midst of a naked meltdown in the San Diego streets.
For someone who launched an empowering and viral video last week, this really brings a new perspective on him.
Since the Kony2012 video was released, Russell and Invisible Children have received heavy criticism saying the campaign presents an overly simplistic, and sometimes inaccurate portrayal of problems in Central Africa.
What do you think? Does this change your mind about the campaign at all?
Remember that hilarious interview Kristen Bell gave Ellen about her sloth encounter? We posted the original interview a few weeks ago.
The interview was a viral hit (8 million views) on YouTube and Ellen too can’t get enough of it. That’s why she decided to air this auto-tuned version of Kristen’s interview, featuring some audience members dancing along.
“Next time my back goes out again, that’s my new dance move!” Ellen joked.
The T-Pain inspired song was created by the Gregory Brothers. Take a look:
Jon Cryer, star of ‘Two And A Half Men,’ spoke to David Letterman last night about former costar Charlie Sheen’s very public meltdown.
Cryer apparently never saw it coming that Sheen would be fired and embark on a crazy media frenzy.
Even though Sheen has publicly bashed him, calling him a “troll” to the media, Cryer also still considers the troubled actor a “good friend.”
As for Sheen’s new replacement, Ashton Kutcher, Cryer feels confident about the new direction of the show.
“We had a very quick meeting to see if we could deal with each other, and we could,” Cryer told Letterman.
“They threw everything together very quickly and they had to fly us to New York so they could parade us in front of advertisers. And they put us in the CBS corporate jet, which was very snazzy.”

Pop queen Britney Spears has decided its time to regain control of her own finances. She’s been under financial conservatorship for a while now, but now she’s hired a tutor from the Anderson School of Management at UCLA to show her how to manage her cashflow better.
“She wants to win control of her finances,” a Spears insider says. “The tutor will help with basic skills – like balancing personal accounts and time management.”
Spears, who had a very public meltdown a few years ago and lost control of her finances, is rebounding with chart-topper “Hold it Against Me,” a take on the current dubstep trend in music. She’s also got a new boyfriend, ex manager Jason Trawick, and seems to be getting along very will with ex and babydaddy Kevin Federline. Overall, things are looking good for Britney!
We hope it stays that way!
