Kanye West Is Performing at the Grammys, the Award Show He’s Been Boycotting for Five Years
Despite being nominated for 53 Grammys, and taking home 21 of them, Kanye West hasn’t attended the Grammys since 2009, apparently in protest. But that will end on Sunday, when he not only shows up at the Grammys, but performs twice. One will be solo, and one will be “FourFiveSeconds”, his new collaboration with Paul McCartney and Rihanna. Kanye’s “Bound 2” is also nominated for a couple awards this year: “Best Rap / Sung Collaboration” with Charlie Wilson and “Best Rap Song.” It’ll be interesting to see if and how Kanye addresses the crowd if he wins.

Bobbi Kristina and Her Husband Were Never Married?
Because Bobbi Kristina is still in rough shape, you’d think that this should be a time when her family gets it together for a bit. But it sounds like they just can’t. For starters, there’s talk that Bobbi Kristina and her so-called “husband” Nick Gordon never officially wed. Her father Bobby Brown’s attorney says, quote, “She is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon.” There are rumors that the Brown and Houston sides of her family have been at war, but one source says, quote, “Reports that they’re fighting over her care are inaccurate. They’re putting aside their differences for the time being.” Meanwhile, Bobbi Kristina’s care has been interrupted, to some degree, because her father had her moved to a new hospital. Apparently, he was having issues with the other one, including one time when Nick had to be removed by the cops. Get the full story here.
Tom Brady Is Giving His Truck to the Rookie Who Caught the Interception
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady won a 2015 Chevy Colorado for his Super Bowl 49 MVP efforts, but he plans to give the truck to safety Malcolm Butler, the rookie who caught the game winning interception. Brady said, quote, “I’d love to [give Malcolm the truck]. We’re going to figure out how to make that happen.” (Somewhere, Malcolm is probably saying: “Tom, it’s easy. Have the title transferred, and drive it over to my place. Thanks.”) Get the full story here.
Paris Hilton’s Brother Conrad Had a Spoiled Rich Boy Meltdown on a Plane
Paris Hilton’s 20-year-old brother Conrad surrendered himself to the FBI yesterday to face charges for throwing a spoiled, rich boy fit on a flight from London to L.A. It actually happened last July. The crew suspects drugs caused the meltdown. They say Conrad was screaming and threatening flight attendants, saying things like, “If you wanna square up to me bro, then bring it and I will [effing] fight you.”And “I will [effing] own anyone on this flight; they are [effing] peasants.” He was pacing up and down the aisles, yelling, and swearing. He was being so insane, children were crying. He grabbed one flight attendant’s shirt and said, quote, “I could get you all fired in 5 minutes. I know your boss! My father will pay this out. He has done it before. Dad paid $300k last time.” There are also reports that he smoked pot in the bathroom. Conrad finally fell asleep and the captain had crew members handcuff him to his seat. A family attorney says Conrad took a sleeping pill, and may have suffered adverse effects from that. And TMZ says Conrad went to rehab right after the incident. Get the full story here.
Randy Quaid Has Resurfaced As Insane as Ever
Randy Quaid and his equally crazy wife Evi went on a quest of lunacy that led to Canada, where they’re now supposedly stuck and unable to re-enter the country due to various legal issues. But it’s been a long time since we’ve heard from them. And in that time, it’s obvious they did not get the mental help they so desperately need, because they posted a new video yesterday, and they’re just as out-to-lunch as ever. Randy has a long, white, crazy-man beard now. And he spends the first part of the video griping about how he helped News Corp and Warner Brothers earn “well over a billion dollars” on the movies “Independence Day” and “Christmas Vacation”. Then he accuses News Corp of smearing their names, and says Warner Brothers had them, quote, “arrested six times by TMZ.” Yes, he somehow claims TMZ arrested them. He also calls them, quote, “PMC: Police Media Corruption.” Get the full story here.
Lance Armstrong Cited for Hitting Two Parked Cars After First Letting Girlfriend Anna Hansen Take the Blame
The former champion cyclist who ultimately admitted to cheating his way through seven Tour de France titles was cited weeks later after he initially let his girlfriend take the blame for him when he dinged two parked cars while they were on their way home from a party in December, according to an Aspen Police incident report obtained Tuesday by E! News. In the police report, officers state that Anna Hansen told them she had been driving because Armstrong had been drinking. The report states, “She said…she was driving too fast for conditions and lost control around a snowy corner and collided with the two parked cars.” Hansen reportedly said that the decision to have her take the blame was mutual. She has not been charged with any crime. Get the full story here.
