Kim Kardashian Is One Of “Time” Magazine’s “Most Influential People on the Internet”
Kim Kardashian’s booty may or may not have “broken the Internet” last year, but it’s pretty clear that she’s everywhere online, for better or worse. Although honestly, does anyone actually believe it’s for the better? That’s why it isn’t shocking that Kim scored a spot on “Time” magazine’s new list of “The 30 Most Influential People on the Internet.” Other celebrities who made the list include: Jimmy Fallon, Beyoncé, Shakira, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Gwyneth Paltrow, and “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling. YouTube “stars” Bethany Mota, “PewDiePie,” Grace Helbig, and Tyler Oakley also made the cut, along with Vine sensations Nash Grier and Brittany Furlan, Instagram star Josh Ostrovsky, who’s known as “The Fat Jew,” Pinterest celebrityJoy Cho, and blogger Vani Hari, a.k.a. “The Food Babe.” President Obama is also on it, but since the list is not ranked, it’s unclear who’s more or less influential than him.

Kevin Bacon Can Connect Himself to the Guy Who Assassinated Lincoln in Six Steps or Less
Here’s how well The Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon works: Bacon can connect himself to John Wilkes Booth in six steps or less. For those of you who don’t know your history, that’s the guy who assassinated President Lincoln in 1865. He died that same year, 93 years before Kevin was born. But he says, quote, “When he was an actor, there were no films, but someone that he acted with, who would I guess be quite a bit younger than him, was in some stage production grew up and became old enough to be in silent films. “And then it kind of went on from there to the talkies, and I was connected to him in six degrees. So, you know, a dubious distinction.” (You can see the specifics on Kevin’s ‘connection’ to Lincoln’s assassin here.) Even though the “six degrees” game is associated with Kevin, there are a lot of better candidates. He says, quote, “They’ve done lists of being connected. I’m [only] like the 2,000th most connected or something like that.” Get the full story here.

Nick Gordon Checked into Rehab After Filming Dr. Phil
Nick Gordon checked into rehab for drugs after ranting he might kill himself during a taped appearance with Dr. Phil. Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend sat down with Dr. Phil in Atlanta earlier this week for what he thought would be an interview, but turned out to be more like an intervention organized by Phil and Gordon’s mother. During the taping, Gordon talked about committing suicide if Bobbi Kristina didn’t pull out of the coma. Gordon’s mother complained her son was severely depressed and abusing drugs. It’s unclear where Gordon is getting treatment and for how long. Get the full story here.
Bobbi Kristina’s Family Is Upset Dr. Phil Allowed Nick Gordon To Have A Public Platform Amid ‘Strong Evidence Of Foul Play’
Bobbi Kristina’s Aunt Leolah Brown says they have good reason for keeping Nick Gordon away from her niece. Following Gordon’s appearance on Dr. Phil (which airs March 11th), and subsequent check-in to rehab, Leolah had a lot to say and posted it on her Facebook:
Police had previously confirmed that they have launched an investigation into the Jan. 31 near drowning of Bobbi Kristina, but they did not confirm if Gordon was directly under investigation. Roswell Police Chief Rusty Grant said that the police are “going to follow the evidence and see where it leads us.” Get the full story here.
People Are Selling “Bags of Air” from Kanye West Concerts on eBay
eBay is packed with worthless junk, but this takes the cake: Multiple people are selling sealed BAGS OF AIR from KANYE WEST concerts, and even crazier, there are idiots out there actually bidding on them. Prices have ranged from $1 to over $60,000. Not all of them are receiving bids, thankfully, but one of the more popular ones said, quote, “Official air from Kanye West’s Yeezus tour!! More than 20 Ziploc bags available! Air taken from FRONT ROW SEATS . . . POSSIBLY CONTAINS KANYE’S BREATH!!!!” It was going for $305, and had 14 bids. Another one was bid up to $60,100, and apparently had 90 bids. Those listing have since been taken down, and no one knows whether they were shut down, or if transactions actually took place. Last we checked, there were about a half dozen listings from different sellers, and none of them had any bids. Although someone did bid $99 on a so-called “bag of air from people who could care less about Kanye West.” Get the full story here.
