    U2'S Bono Does Impressive Bill Clinton Impersonation at Charitable Forum in NYC

    U2‘s Bono apparently has other talents besides being a world-class singer, songwriter and fund-raising philanthropist.  The rock star also can do an uncanny imitation of former U.S. President Bill Clinton. In a video accompanying a New York Post article, the famous frontman is seen showing off his skills on Tuesday in New York City during the Clinton Global Initiative’s annual meeting event to discuss the organization’s various charitable initiatives.  Clinton was late for the start of the panel, so Bono grabbed a microphone, sat in Bill’s empty chair and began impersonating the politician. “When I first met Bono, he walked… Read more

    Miley Cyrus Gets "Rolling Stone" Tattoo; Talks VMAs, Kanye & Bieber

    (LOS ANGELES) — How would you celebrate landing your first Rolling Stone cover?  Miley Cyrus is celebrating the honor deep down in her very “soles” — the soles of her feet. The singer has gotten the words “Rolling” and “$tone,” with the “S” turned into a dollar sign, tattooed on the bottoms of her feet to celebrate the fact that she’s gracing the cover of the magazine’s new “Hot Issue.”  She’s posing in swimming pool, topless, with her arms covering her breasts and, of course, her tongue sticking out. Why a tattoo?  “I thought about going to play laser tag,”… Read more

    Leah Remini: Church of Scientology ‘Looking for Me to Fail’

    Kanye West Claims Self-Defense in Paparazzi Altercation

The incident was caught on video and also posted by TMZ, and shows… Read more
