Oscars show stoppers

Angelina Jolie's leg stole the show at the 2012 Academy Awards. In 2013, it was Anne Hathaway's nipples. After making their "pointed" debut on the red carpet, Hathaway's nips had their own blog and Titter account. Titter? I meant Twitter. And no Oscars ceremony is complete without the host making headlines for a controversial joke. Host Seth Macfarlane, creator of the popular animated TV series Family Guy, shook things up with his joke about Rihanna and Chris Brown.

Worst of the Oscars 2013

The Onion, a popular satirical "news" organization in the US, made headlines for making the absolute worst Oscars-related comment. The usually funny and clever group posted an extremely offensive comment toward 9-year-old Beasts of the Southern Wild actress Quvenzhané Wallis. They tweeted her, calling her the C-word. If you're an English student and aren't familiar with this word, don't bother to learn it. It was down right disgraceful.

Obama, Kid President collaborate

Let us introduce you to Robbie Novak, also known as Kid President. This young guy has been starring in a series of Youtube videos for the last few months promoting happiness, awesomeness, and all around good for the world. He's incredible and hilarious. This week, US President Barack Obama collaborated with Kid President to release a commercial promoting an Easter event at the White House. The commercial is great, but Kid President's reaction to Obama's invitation was priceless.

This wacky world!

A group of vegans in Britain have started a new trend of cooking in the nude. It's popular but would be much more so if they could recruit some attractive members.

Ikea furniture stores in Europe have been found to be service horse meat in their meat balls. I'm not sure that would be a scandal here in China.

Madonna was warned for posting inappropriate pictures on her Instagram account. Usually, that's a sign for me to follow, but Madonna's just gross. Too bad. She used to be so great.

Miss Teen USA Delaware forfeited her crown after her amateur porn video surfaced online.

Former Chicago Bulls forward Dennis Rodman, who is quote possibly the most eccentric player in NBA history, is touring North Korea to take part in a basketball documentary with Vice. Rodman couldn't be more out of place.

This week's best viral video features Kevin Michael Connolly, a double amputee who pushes himself to limits you could never imagine.
