Amanda Bynes was a misguided rebel yesterday afternoon (twice) when she decided to bolt from a cop while he was writing her a ticket for driving while talking on her cell phone.
After pulling her over, the officer approached the car and collected her information so he could write the ticket. But Amanda apparently had better things to do so she put her foot on the pedal whizzed off before he could get her signature.
TMZ reported that the cop decided not to chase after her because she wasn’t a huge threat and he already had all her information. Later, Bynes managed to stop by the police station to sign the ticket but the police apparently aren’t going to let her off so easy for bolting.
The incident ironically came days after an unfortunate tweet that encouraged girls to live fast and die young… this, out of 13 tweets in her entire Twitter career.
If you’re a star as big as Katy Perry, perhaps you’ll have enough power to close down a whole street.
Well actually, that’s what happened.
In a city like Toronto where mayor Rob Ford considers moving charity events and marathons off the streets because they’re an inconvenience to drivers, Yonge St., one of the city’s main downtown streets, closed for six hours just so the popstar could promote her new perfume, Purr.
Appearing almost an hour and a half late, Perry showed up for about 30 minutes of the closure. Yonge St., from Edward to Richmond Sts, was almost empty for a large part of the time.
“It doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense,” said Councillor Doug Holyday, according to an interview with the Toronto Star. “You wonder why it couldn’t have been held somewhere where it wouldn’t block off the street.”
“We’ve got places where some of these sizable events can be held,” he continued, mentioning Nathan Phillips and Yonge-Dundas squares as other options.
Sears, the perfume’s retailer, anticipated 3,000 to 7,000 fans to fill the streets, according to Vincent Power, director of corporate communications.
But with rough estimates from Toronto police and Eaton Centre security, the closure only drew about 1,500.
So a bit of an exaggeration?
I would think so.
I’m actually a bit disappointed with how this was handled. Six hours really was not necessary and most of the people there were probably just passing by and curious as to what was happening.
I’m a fan of Katy but being almost an hour and a half late was not very cool to the fans who had to wait in the sweltering heat.
And besides, six hours of road closures? That’s too extreme.
Hilarious! TMZ is reporting that hottie AnnaLynne McCord’s phone number was leaked on Facebook last week, and the details surrounding the leak are pretty funny.
McCord apparently was at a fault during a traffic accident on Tuesday with a gentleman named Aaron. McCord was driving a Mini Cooper that belonged to her sister Angel. AnnaLynne was very apologetic and accepted responsibility for the accident.
A few days later Aaron received an angry phone call from Angel, cursing him out for filing an insurance claim. Aaron decided to get even and posted AnnaLynne’s phone number on his Facebook account, so his 361 friends could “call her and let her know what a deadbeat she is.”
This is so stupid and hysterical but let’s face it, she kind of deserved it!
TMZ reports that Heather Locklear was arrested for a hit-and-run in Ventura County last Saturday. At 4am someone heard a loud crash but didn’t call it in until the following evening. Deputies investigated the scene and found a knocked over “No Parking” sign, and black paint residue from the car that hit the sign.
Further investigation allowed them to conclude that it was Locklear’s black BMW that hit the sign. Investigators visited her home to find her car having damage consistent with the accident. She was arrested and later released from police custody.
Back in 2008, Locklear was arrested in Santa Barbara for allegedly driving under the influence of prescription medications.
