This is why you don’t mess with Lady Gaga people. Her security team means business.
Before her concert at the Piata Constitutiei in Bucharest Romania last night she was rushed by a fan. He bypassed the security guards in the hopes of getting an autograph. Before he could even ask for one two guys pummelled him to the ground and held him in place until Gaga left the building. A lot of people are calling the move over-dramatic but these days you can’t really take any chances.
When she arrived in Romania Gaga had an interesting way of diverting fans. She sent a decoy out of her tour bus wearing an orange wig and sunglasses so she could catch a few extra hours of sleep (see the photo below).
Watch it here:
Because One Direction is so famous that they can barely get any privacy anymore, it’s not hard to believe that security surrounding the boys will be tight.
But when several 1D fans tried to sneak into the gym where the boys were working out, one fan managed to slip by and catch poor Liam Payne in the buff when he was changing at the gym!
“Liam was stunned when he saw her in the changing room — he couldn’t believe she’d got past security,” a source told British newspaper Metro. “For one thing, he was in the middle of getting dressed and had no idea what she was going to do, as their fans in the US are mad.”
While Niall has previously stated that fans can be “a bit too much,” this certainly takes the cake.
The things some people will do to get close!
Honestly, you’re not being a really good fan if you’re disrespecting your favourite band’s privacy.
Two seventh graders are being called heroes after stopping a school bus from crashing in Washington. After the driver passed out and went unconscious, several students called 911.
Jeremy Wuitschick acted quickly, jumping out of his seat and taking control of the wheel. Meanwhile, another student named Johnny Wood began performing CPR. These kids are quick thinking heros! Who knows what would have happened if they weren’t there?
The secret is out on how Miley Cyrus’ GMail account was hacked. And it wasn’t through some crazy hacking – it was simply someone knew the answer to Miley’s secret security question.
The anonymous hacker told TMZ that he tried logging into her account, and he was presented with the security question. The question asked the name of her oldest girlfriend, and through some simple Google searching, he was able to find the answer.
He says, “When I saw that, I couldn’t believe it.”
So it’s a lesson for everyone – be very creative about your security question.
Justin Bieber and his entourage had some problems getting into the BET Awards – and it was all caught on video obtained by TMZ. The video clearly shows Bieber calling the BET security guy a “douche bag.”
The issue started when BET security didn’t want to let Bieber’s bodyguard in as he didn’t have a ticket. As both sides argued Biebs eventually interrupted by saying, “I need to bring my security! This guy’s a douche bag.”
Eventually the issue was sorted and all of Bieber’s security people were allowed inside. However, another example of little Justin growing up, and starting to become a douche bag himself.
David Arquette was kicked out of a Prince concert recently, reports CTV.
The actor reportedly got into an altercation with security at one of Prince’s ‘Welcome 2 America’ shows at Los Angeles Forum.
Apparently, there is a no photography rule at the concert, but Prince announced they could take pictures for the next few songs. While David didn’t take out his phone, a young fan next to him did, and when security came to confiscate the item, Arquette stood up for him. And that lead to him being thrown out.
David said: “Prince was like, ‘Alright, I’m about to play my hits, so get out your phones’. I didn’t take anymore pictures but the kid next to me was taking pictures and I still had my phone in my hand.”
“Security came to take this kid away and they said, ‘You gotta get rid of all those pictures on your phone.’ I said, ‘Prince just said we could take the pictures.’ And so I got kicked out of the Prince show.”
I mean, this is silly. Security at these concerts can be really ridiculous sometimes. I don’t think this was worth being thrown out for, but hey, at least he didn’t get kicked off the stage for not dancing like Kim Kardashian.
“Denise and her girls live a simple life,” an insider tells PopEater. “She wants Sam and Lola to have normal lives, but after the recent threats and verbal attacks, she has increased her security. When you are dealing with a mad man, it’s better to be safe than sorry.”
Although there has been problems with the couple for a while, the most recent incident took place when Charlie called Denise a “traitor and loser whore” via Twitter over allegedly stealing his dogs.
“How Denise has managed to keep all this secret for so long is a miracle,” a friend of the former couple tells PopEater. “If Charlie is willing to put those evil tweets out in public, you can only imagine what he has called Denise in private.”
In recent months, Charlie certainly has been pretty funny but this is too much. Denise Richards put up with a lot of sh*t from Charlie. In this case you look like an idiot Charlie.
Angelina Pivarnick, the Jersey Shore cast member who decided to leave the show’s second season before it ended, was attacked in a mall earlier today… or so she says, reports TMZ.
The reality star claims that she was at a Hot Topic at the Staten Island Mall Friday when she was struck in the back of the head. A source close to Angelina said that there was a “rowdy group” of people who approached Angelina and a friend.
As Angelina’s story goes, someone attacked her from behind, hitting her head and leaving a big welt.
In contrast to her strong allegations, mall security claims that a small group of people had been filming Angelina and her friend and someone ended up hitting her in the face by mistake.
Everything cooled down when security made the crowd disperse, but according to a source, Angelina is looking for help from the police to determine what to do next.
Sarah Palin is sending the security of Dancing with the Stars into a tizzy, TMZ reports.
The arrival of the Palinator to watch daughter Bristol compete on the reality show has caused security to bolster their efforts substantially. The network has put the entire lot on “heightened alert.” Officials will be performing random bumper-to-bumper searches on select cars that enter the lot, and the bags of all audience members will the thoroughly rifled through. From there, everything will be passed through a metal detector before the ticketholder will be allowed to take their seat.
Though Sarah’s not technically running for any government position, it’s been decided that for the safety of the audience she should be treated as a government official.
It’s also been reported that should the worst-case scenario happen, Sarah is a higher priority than her daughter! Lolz! That’s good parenting for you.
We’re sure Bristol is a wonderful dancer, but we’d rather spend the broadcast watching her mom chat with Jersey Shore’s Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino! We have a feeling those two would totally hit it off.
Bristol and competition partner Mark Ballas will be dancing to “Mama Told Me (Not To Come)” for Sarah and the studio audience. Will you be watching this season of DWTS?
When filming “New Moon”, Robert Pattinson needed some extra protection from the screaming fans. So producers of the film hired some Canadian mounties, reports RadarOnline.com.
“It was an unusual mission but our remit was to keep the fans off the set,” Constable Baillant told RadarOnline.com exclusively. “Everything went well on the first day but then a group of teenage girls got a little too close when the filming moved to the Long Beach area of the island.”
“They were totally miffed with us when we told them that they could not get any closer, however, their spirits lifted when Kristin Stewart came over to pose for a few photographs with them,” he recalled. “It was raining really hard the whole time but the producers loved that because it helped to make their scenes much more gloomy and atmospheric too. This is a beautiful part of the world but when it gets cold and wet even a vampire would get the chills.”
TMZ reports that not only will the MTV cast have their own private security with them 24/7, they will also have an increased police presence following them around.
Last year only one officer was assigned to the show, but this year 7-10 cops will be with the crew. Hopefully this will help prevent boardwalk brawls and guys punching girls. However, doesn’t that ridiculous behavior make the show watchable? Watching these morons get into altercations is more than half the fun. With increased security, we may not be able to look forward to those classy moments anymore.
The boys from Two and a Half Men don’t have any luck with women. Charlie Sheen first has his marital problems during Christmas, and now Jon Cryer is going through a similar marital crisis. While filming the show on Friday, a serious threat was made against Cryer in connection to his divorce with his ex-wife, Sarah Trigger. Teams of security stormed the set and the taping continued without a studio audience.
