Controversy has arisen in Warsaw, Poland as a result of a piece by Maurizio Cattelan.
The Italian artist has created a statue of Adolf Hitler praying and placed it in the former Warsaw Ghetto, a location that saw numerous Jews killed by the dictator during his regime.
It is titled “HIM,” is only visible from a long distance and is meant to force a contemplation on the nature of evil, according to organizers.
However, Jewish advocacy group the Simon Wiesenthal Center doesn’t see it that way.
The organization says the placement of the artwork represents “a senseless provocation,More >
Steve Czaban and Andy Pollin, ESPN radio hosts based in Washington, D.C., have been suspended for derogatory comments made in a rant about transgender basketball player Gabrielle Ludwig.
Ludwig plays basketball for Mission College and was born Robert Ludwig, a fact Czaban and Pollin couldn’t get enough of.
“How does this work? You lose testicles and gain eligibility?” one host asks in the following video.Steve Czaban and Andy Pollin Rant About Transgender Player
With Czaban and Pollin constantly referring to Ludwig as “it,” they continued:

We have an update to the Ariel Winter saga.
A judge ordered the 14-year old Modern Family star to remain under the care of her sister, Shantelle Grey, yesterday, as a Department of Children and Family Services determined charges of physical abuse were “unsubstantiated.”
But it did cite evidence of emotional abuse by Ariel’s mother, Chrystal Workman.
This same report recommended Ariel’s sibling be rewarded permanent guardianship, though a trial will eventually decide where the actress ends up long-term.
Winter’s father, Glenn Workman, was represented at yesterday’s hearingMore >
Through a pair of live X Factor episodes, the best thing about Khloe Kardashian as host is clear:
They were the talk of Wednesday night, as Simon Cowell pointed out the clear view he had of these body parts from the judges’ table, and they were also the topic of conversation yesterday when Khloe spoke to reporters.
“I was supposed to wear this yesterday,” Kardashian said, referring to the blue dress she donned for the Results Show. “And it was not tailored enough, annnnd I wore the other thing…”

James Holmes made another appearance in court today, as a hearing was held to listen to arguments from media outlets who believe a judge should unseal various documents related to the July 20 movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado.
Both sides – the prosecution and the defense – actually prefer to keep these documents away from the public while the case is pending.
But while a decision was not made regarding that issue, Holmes’ attorneys did show their hand a bit:
They asked for prosecutors and investigators turn over every shred of evidence in their possession in order for the allegedMore >
Sorry, Good Morning America. You’ve been scooped.
Following the announcement that Robert Pattinson had scheduled his first post-scandal interview with that ABC program, Comedy Central has now stepped in to make a correction:
The Twilight Saga stud will actually sit across from Jon Stewart on Monday’s edition of The Daily Show.
The appearance was booked far in advance, as part of Pattinson’s promotion of Cosmopolis, but given the nature of this comedic series, it’s hard not to wonder if Stewart won’t at least make some reference to another famous Stewart.

While surveillance tapes are best known for catching burglaries, brawls, car crashes and signs of the coming zombie apocalypse, there’s a lot of stuff you don’t see.
A Coca-Cola ad released last week encourages us to look at life differently by showing wonderfully positive, uplifting moments captured on security cameras.
Set to the Supertramp song “Give A Little Bit,” the ad features footage showing people kissing, dancing, helping the homeless, saving others and much more.
Take a look below … and your faith in humanity may be restored:

Let us now pause from debating Kate Middleton baby bump photos to discuss the simple, undisputed and unrelated fact that Prince William is the man.
Not only is he rich, smart, handsome, married to a beautiful girl and a future monarch, but he’s on his way to becoming a decorated serviceman!
Two years after joining the Royal Air Force Search and Rescue Force, the Duke of Cambridge has officially qualified to be an operational captain.
William can now lead missions in RAF Sea King helicopters by himself.

Dan Abrams is our new hero.
The Good Morning America host remained calm and reasonable in the face of Nancy Grace’s condescending absurdity today, as he tried to get Grace to admit that she shouldn’t have wondered about whether or not someone pushed Whitney Houston’s body under water in her hotel room last Saturday.
What prompted Grace to hint at that possibility? Nothing in this case, merely her experience as an attorney overall, which gives her a unique view on what comes next.

There’s a first time for everything.
Lindsay Lohan not only passed muster at her probation hearing today, she did so with flying colors, earning praise from the judge who has reamed her out in the past.
A very surprised Judge Stephanie Sautner began by saying at her hearing this morning in L.A., “Ms. Lohan, you have actually done your work.”
That she has, and then some …
The judge noted that Lindsay completed her community service early and even went to an extra therapy session – five instead of the mandated four – since last time.
Sautner said the Los Angeles County morgue was pleased byMore >
The cover and contents of the highly anticipated Lindsay Lohan Playboy issue leaked early, forcing Hugh Hefner & Co. to bump up its release date to this coming weekend.
As a tease, the first of many Lindsay Lohan Playboy pictures from inside the publication has judy been released, showing the star channelling her inner blonde bombshell.
In the promo photo below, the 24-year-old emulates Marilyn Monroe as she reclines with her dyed, white blonde hair resting on her shoulders, arm behind her head:

Lindsay Lohan is feeling the call of nature these days.
The star, who poses nude in Playboy in a Marilyn Monroe-inspired layout, says that was the simple reason she decided to bare all for the men’s magazine.
The nearly seven-figure payout probably didn’t hurt, either.
“Sex and sexuality are a part of nature, and I go along with nature,” Lohan told Playboy. “I think Marilyn Monroe once said that. I certainly agree with her.”
To guys everywhere, the Lindsay Lohan Playboy pictures are either arousing or amusing. But to the “actress” herself, they are completely empowering.

Sarah Palin says she didn’t mean to insult Herm Cain … Herb Cain … Herman Cain … aww shucks, whatever his name is in an interview on Fox News this week.
When she called the presidential candidate “the flavor of the week,” Palin was criticized by supporters of the Georgia businessman and Republicans in general.
Well, Palin took the time to clarify that, saying she wasn’t suggesting that Cain was about to fade, but merely commenting on her arch-nemesis, the press:
“What the media tends to do is propel this flavor of the week … I am not saying that Herman Cain is the flavor of the week. I’mMore >
Love him, hate him or really, really hate him, there’s no denying the drawing power of Charlie Sheen.
This warlock’s Comedy Central Roast garnered an incredible 6.4 million viewers on Monday night, setting a network record for a special of this nature and out-drawing anything that aired on Fox or NBC.
Said Sheen when he took to the podium, following digs from Seth MacFarlane, Jon Lovitz, Kate Walsh, Mike Tyson, William Shatner and others:”It was only when the smoke cleared, I realized just how lucky I am. Even after all that, I still have a family that loves me.”

Kat Von D is speaking out about her recent split with Jesse James and how her emotions spiraled out of control, culminating in her walking off the set of an interview with Good Day LA, then getting into a Twitter feud with its host.
This crazy week has led, at last, to a moment of clarity.
“What can I say?” the title of her latest blog post reads, regarding the Good Day LA incident. “I suck. I allowed today to get the best of me.”
Days after news broke that James and Von D broke up, calling off their engagement, the LA Ink star is not saying sorry – she’s “not strong enough.”
“It is in myMore >
