Major Lazer and the Most Awkward Interview Ever

Diplo kennedy interview awkward lollapalooza 2013If you remember MTV back in the 90s, when the focus was more on music and less on slutty teenage girls who get pregnant and graduate to porn, you might remember the show Alternative Nation, with host Lisa Kennedy Montgomery (aka Kennedy). She’s now the host of LA’s 98.7FM morning show Music in the Mornings, so if you’re an LA resident you may also be familiar with her current status.

Apparently she also interviews artists at Lollapalooza, the annual Chicago-based music festival that took place this past weekend. A video of Kennedy’s interview with Major Lazer has surfaced, and it’s the most uncomfortable 6 minutes and 34 seconds of human interaction I’ve ever had to cringe my way through.

And then there’s the time Michael Jordan tried to devirginize her with a pair of dice.

Not like, insertion.

Apparently she was sitting around in New York with Russell Simmons and Michael was all like “If I win, you come back to my hotel room with me tonight.”

She definitely makes it sound like he was joking, writing that he quickly reminded her that he had a wife and ended up agreeing to play for bball tickets instead of Georgia O’Queef.

From TMZ:

Kennedy says she freaked out because she was a virgin –and imagined MJ’s giant penis would “eviscerate me from the inside out” … so she asked if they could play for Knicks tickets instead.

12-Year-Old Rips Mitt Romney A New Hole

A Denver 7th grader’s disapproving letter to Mitt Romney discussing gay marriage, women’s rights, religion, and health care is a viral sensation.

Like McKayla Maroney, he is NOT IMPRESSED.

Despite a few grammatical errors (“backpedalled” instead of “backpedaled” and “you’re” instead of “your”), it’s hard to not wonder if Jackson Ripley had some help from his parents. (Or I’m jealous because my comprehension was not nearly this good at age 12.)

What pre-teen refers to the “middle class” and uses words “vulnerable?”

Here’s the entire body of the letter from Jackson Ripley, regarding his younger sister Kennedy’s battle with hemangioma…  Continue reading “12-Year-Old Rips Mitt Romney A New Hole”
