Kevin Durant, one of NBA’s renowned good guys, has come under scrutiny for his on-court language and demeanor … from his own grandmother.
After his Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Phoenix Suns Monday, Durant’s grandma congratulated him on the win via text, with a side of scolding:
“Kev kev stop cussing so much they be showing u when u do,” she wrote.

Durant then shared a screenshot of the exchange with his 960,000 Instagram followers on Tuesday, with the appropriate caption “sorry grandma lol.”

Republican Presidential hopeful Herman Cain is sorry, kind of, and says he was kidding, sorta, for a recent comment about an electric fence protecting the U.S.
Suddenly a bona fide contender for his party’s nomination in ’12, the Georgia businessman is now facing more intense scrutiny as his poll numbers surge up.
As such, his off-the-cuff comments are coming back to bite him at times … such as when he called for an electric fence along the U.S. border with Mexico.

Kanye West posted a controversial cover for his new album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, this weekend, while declaring “Banned in the USA!!!”
The image features a painting of Kanye “chilling on the couch with my phoenix!” It was not chosen for the actual release, which disappoints West.
His Tweeting continued: “In the 70s album covers had actual nudity… It’s so funny people forget that… Everything has been so commercialized now.”

Let’s call the Joaquin Phoenix story what it really is…a Mockumentary. During an interview with The New York Times Casey Affleck revealed that I’m Still Here was nothing more than a “performance” in which Phoenix pretended to be on some weird downward spiral.
The joke started in February 2009 when Phoenix appeared on late-night with David Letterman and seemed to be completely incoherent with a newly revealed heavy dark black beard and sunglasses. During that interview Letterman said, “Joaquin, I’m sorry you couldn’t be here tonight.”
Since that time Phoenix has managed to keep his alter egoMore >
