Die on your arse: Bruce Willis stars in an awkward The One Show interview

APOLOGIES for being little late on this one. Bruce Willis has been on The One Show, the BBC’s bigger budget local news-style telly show. It was painful. Matt Baker and Alex Jones didn’t so much interview Willis as collide with him, Armageddon style. Willis came over as a pillock. Baker was simpering. Jones was creeping.

The choicest cut was when the melting, obsequious duo asked Willis: “When you stared  25 years ago, did you think you’d  get a fifth instalment of Die Hard?”

Willis: “Do you even know what’s happening ten minutes from now?”

Add it to the list:

Jim Colerick presents the greatest Songs for Jesus

JESUS Is My Nigga “Pastor Rap”. It’s American pastor Jim Colerick and his wife, Mary Sue, doin’ Rappin’ for Jesus.

My crew is big and it keeps getting bigga, that’s cause Jesus Christ is my ni**a!

The Daily Mail reaches the heights: A-listers parade their ears

THE Daily Mail has a well-earned reputation online for spinning  a story from a paparazzi photo of a celebrity in a bikini. The story routinely includes the words “[insert name] parades her figure” or “[insert name] parades her pregnancy bump”, “[insert name] parades her curves” or “[insert name] parades her breasts / buttock. thighs“. So. Mail writer Clare Coulson got to thinking. And she’s come up with anew angle: ears.

£75,000 raised to build Star Wars Death Star

WITH the news of Disney making a film about a young Han Solo (good move really as Han Solo is a cocky arse, which can only make for thrills and spills), some Star Wars fans will be weeping into their laps because they don’t like the idea of Mickey Mouse having anything to do with George Lucas’ brainchild (yeah, and he really looked after the franchise didn’t he?).

And so, in a bid to stop any of these new Star Wars films from taking off, an unlikely project has arisen: Star Wars fans have raised £75,000 to build an actual Death Star.

Beyonce Knowles Super Bowl derp and Mr Microphone show in photos

DID you stay up to see Beyonce perform in New Orleans? It was tough going. In the UK, the show was broadcast in the early hours of the morning. To make it harder to stay up that late, the event was squashed between something called the NFL Super Bowl XLVII football game, a contest between the lycra-clad San Francisco 49ers and the shoulder-heavy Baltimore Ravens. Staying awake was testing for any metrosexuals not into 1980s fashions. But if you put in the hard yards, Beyonce was there. You got to see Destiny’s Child reunited – shame the extra ladies lost their voices whenever Beyonce sang ,or their Mr Microphones had failed at the last – and the birth of the Beyonce Derp meme.  How committed to the show was Beyonce? Get a load of the game face. She was all in:

Heidi Montag books a flight to Heaven to check on dead Spencer Pratt

FOR the past two weeks, OK! has led with news of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, aka Speidi. Having paid big to get the US reality TV star on Celebrity Big Brother, Richard Desmond is keen to eke out their fame in his mag.

In week one, we read how their experiences in the CBB house “made them need each other even more”. Such is the way of a twosome given the one-name treatment. Heidi will forever be the Alpine girl done good, and Spencer is what comes after Frank and a whoopsie. They need each other to exist, like Marks without Spencer, Laurel without Hardy or John Merrick and the elephants.

David Beckham, Jimmy Savile, Ronnie Irani, Maggie Thatcher and Jeffrey Archer: the five biggest charity boasters

THEY do a lot of work for charity, and they DO like to mention it!


When it comes to self-promotion you have to hand it to him. Transfer deadline day arrives and instead of talking about a 22-year-old Brazilian or Portuguese hotshot on his way to Chelsea or Manchester to City, the media is frothing with excitement over a 37-year-old former international whose main purpose these days is to sell merchandise with his name on.
