Last week, Tyler the Creator took the heat for Justin Bieber’s alleged joy ride, Tweeting that he was driving the singer’s Ferrari when neighbors complained it was speeding around town on Memorial Day.
Now, Tyler himself is under fire for comments made in Australia.Tyler, the Creator Curses Off Critic
It all started with feminist protester Talitha Stone petitioning to have the artist’s Visa revoked because there are rules in the nation against visitors who “vilify or incite discord” and “songs advocating rape and extreme violence against women.”

Comic-Con isn’t even underway yet, but it’s already making news, and in the worst possible way: Tuesday, a woman was struck by a car and killed in San Diego while waiting in line to see some of her favorite actors from Breaking Dawn Part 2.
Summit Entertainment and Lionsgate released a joint statement today:
“Lionsgate, Summit and the entire Twilight community are saddened by the death of a Comic-Con fan today due to a traffic accident leading up to this year’s convention in San Diego. Our thoughts and condolences go out to the victim’s family and friends.”

Lamar Odom has succeeded where so many before him have failed: at standing up to Kris Jenner.
The Kardashian matriarch had reportedly been pressuring her son-in-law to give up professional basketball and dedicate himself fully to the life of a talentless, shameless hack reality TV star.
But TMZ now confirms Odom has gone in the opposite direction and will be concluding his series with wife Khloe Kardashian after this season in order to focus on his faltering NBA career.

Christopher Hitchens, famed British-born author, literary critic and journalist, passed away Thursday at a hospital in Texas. He was 62 years old.
He died from pneumonia, a complication of esophageal cancer.
Vanity Fair magazine, his longtime employer, announced his death, and said simply that there would “never be another like Christopher.”
VF editor Graydon Carter described the writer as someone “of ferocious intellect, who was as vibrant on the page as he was at the bar … Those who read him felt they knew him, and those who knew him were profoundlyMore >
In the midst of major drama and controversy – actual, unscripted drama and controversy for a change – The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills kicked off season two last night. It earned -34 points from our critic.
Voices from across the Internet and the television dial have been chiming in on Bravo’s decision to go through with the season in light of Russell Armstrong’s suicide, but there are a few women at least who stand by the network: those employed by it.
Let’s take a look at how various Real Housewives of New York City feel about the events.

The Change-Up, while hardly an original idea (how many times have we seen the body switch comedy), more than holds its own thanks to its two terrific leads.
Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman carry the Judd Apatow-meets-Farrelly Brothers-style romp, one that ends up being more heartfelt than you might imagine.
Watching the actors embody one another is comedic gold. The humor is juvenile at times, but given the premise, our critic wouldn’t have it any other way.
While it does drag at times, the two stars’ performances are still well worth the price of admission.More >
First Tracy Morgan. Now Cee Lo Green?!
Not exactly, but The Voice coach is under considerable fire after a Tweet he wrote to a music critic, Andrea Swensson, following his June 16 show.
Swensson termed Cee Lo’s concert “lackluster” and “gross,” which the singer didn’t really appreciate. He struck back at her with this tweet:
“I respect your criticism, but be fair! People enjoyed last night! I’m guessing you’re gay? And my masculinity offended you? Well f–k you!”
Who? Me? Cee Lo? Homophobic?
Yeah. Probably not the best word choice. The “F–k You” singer attempted an apology on Twitter … butMore >
In President Obama’s Tucson speech last week, he said the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords should not be blamed on rhetoric by any person or group, while at the same time calling for a more civil, positive national discourse. Amen.
Joan Rivers apparently missed this memo.
Asked about Palin at the Critic’s Choice Awards party in Hollywood, Rivers said people blaming Palin for the Tucson tragedy are right, adding that “this woman is just stupid and a threat.” To what? The English language maybe. Beyond that?
Listen to Rivers’ absurd comments below:
Glee paid tribute to Lady Gaga Tuesday. Perhaps you heard.
Critics and fans loved the Fox show’s episode, which drew praise from the often-imitated, never duplicated (sorry, Christina Aguilera) star as well.
“I love Glee,” the singer told EW. “I went to a musical theatre school, and used to dream that someday the students would be singing my songs.”
Gaga also posted on Twitter about the Glee episode, called “Theatricality,” summing her feelings up simply: “GLEE WAS SO AMAZING! AHHH!!!!”
Pretty much the exact reaction of our critic’s Glee review.
