Miesha Tate Beats Japan’s Best For Second Win This Year

Miesha Tate rin nakai statsRonda Rousey nemesis Miesha “Cupcake” Tate flew way out West on Saturday to challenge previously undefeated fighter Rin Nakai for and closed UFC Fight Night 52 with her second unanimous win of 2014.

It wasn’t as easy of a fight as you would expect for Miesha, whose record was tarnished last year when she fought and lost to both Rousey and Cat Zingano.

At 5’1″ and 135 pounds of pure muscle, Rin Nakai is probably the most formidable women’s MMA opponent in Japan, but her much shorter reach proved too great an obstacle to overcome, with 5’6″ Tate out-grappling and out-striking her every time.

The fairly fast-paced fight went to the third round, when most expected to see an early KO or submission from the super versatile Tate, who has finished opponents with everything from armbars to head kicks. Ultimately, Nakai underestimated the woman who took Ronda Rousey to a third round, and the judges took notice.

Avril Lavigne Says Hello to Her Kitty, Offends Everyone

It’s really hard to pinpoint the exact moment that Avril Lavigne went wrong with “Hello Kitty…”

I don’t know if it’s the lyrics, her super punk side shave and cupcake skirt, the dubstep breakdown about a minute in or the sedated Asian women she’s hired to stand behind her.

While Avril defended the video calling it an ode to Japanese culture after bloggers labelled it “racist,” I find it deeply offensive for other reasons. Those reasons being:

1. Avril Lavigne is 29 years old

2. Her husband, Chad Kroeger, is 39 years old

3. The blessed union that is Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger wrote this song together

4. Keywords: Hello Kitty, slumber party, spin the bottle

5. Chad Kroeger is not yet listed as a registered sex offender  Continue reading “Avril Lavigne Says Hello to Her Kitty, Offends Everyone”

Pitch Perfect Come to Life: Japanese Pop Star Punished for Sleeping with Boy Band Member

Minami Minegishi shaved headJapanese popstar Minami Minegishi, 20, broke the cardinal pop group rule: never sleep with a boy band member.

Japanese tabloids published a story of AKB48 member, Minami Minegishi spending the night with her boyfriend Alan Shirahama, a dancer of boy band, Exile. After some begging, the singer was kept on the team but demoted to a “trainee pop star” for the band cash cow girl group AKB48.

Get this – the band is a rotating group of 90 girls who just train to dance, pout and squish their boobs together.

You gotta give Minegishi credit for being on trend, the poor starlet shaved her head and gives a teary apology letter to four million Youtube fans.  Continue reading “Pitch Perfect Come to Life: Japanese Pop Star Punished for Sleeping with Boy Band Member”

Nicolas Cage Wants To Play A Ghost In ‘The Wicker Man 2’

Nicolas Cage, who has been spoofed famously on SNL for his lack of the ability to say no to money/degrading movie roles expressed interest in a Wicker Man sequel.

If you can extend your memory back to 2006, past Cage’s other flops, you’ll remember that the remake to Robin Hardy’s kitschy 1973 horror movie was nearly as hilarious but 20 times more pitiful than the original.

Since his character died he explained via a fan’s webchat question that he’d like to play a spirit. The questions was, “is there any character you’d like to revist?” To which he replied:

Lady Gaga Really is A Man (For Her “You & I” Single)

Apparently I’m out of the loop. Lady Gaga has had a male alter-ego since September of last year, whom she calls “Jo Calderone.” Hmmm, Jo looks a lot like Al Pacino.

Lady Balls Balls tweeted the cover art for the “You & I” single cover art featuring the pop star in a very convincing drag getup. I saw it the other day briefly and wondered if it was Gaga’s new boyfriend or some artistic male inspiration of hers. Who knew.

It was revealed that the video for “You & I” will be released as Lady Gaga’s 1000th tweet, and she’s currently on 992, so it seems like that will probably be in a few weeks, who knows how long or short she wants to play that game for.
