Today’s CRAP ON CELEBS we chat about the death of MCA and we talk about how Ted Nugent just absolutely LOSES it on a reporter. And it’s pretty damn hilarious. Plus, today’s CRAPPY BDAYS and the world famous PORNO BDAY!
ADAM YAUCH . . . “MCA” of the BEASTIE BOYS . . . passed away on Friday morning, after a three-year battle with cancer. He was 47. In July of 2009, he revealed that he had a tumor in his salivary gland. Last year, there were reports that MCA’s condition was improving . . . but in a message to fans, he said those reports were premature. MCA wasn’t able to make the Beastie Boys’ Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction last month . . . and in his absence, the group opted not to perform. MCA started the Beastie Boys with his friends Mike Diamond a.k.a. “Mike D” . . . and ADAM HOROWITZ a.k.a. “Ad-Rock” in 1979. They went on to sell over 40 million albums over the past 30 years. It’s too soon to say how or if the Beastie Boys will continue. There’s been no comment yet from Mike D or Ad-Rock. There’s a video on today’s show blog that MCA released in 2009 where he explains his diagnosis. It’s sad, because at the time it sounded like the doctors caught it early, and he had a good chance of beating it.
TED NUGENT went off on a CBS News reporter last week . . . and even angrily offered to perform SEX ACTS on the guy and his producer. It happened when the reporter suggested that Nugent is not a moderate. Nugent LOST IT. He replied, quote, “I’m an extremely loving and passionate man, and people who investigate me honestly, without the baggage of political correctness, ascertain the conclusion that I’m a damned nice guy . . .And if you can find a screening process more powerful than that, I’ll [perform oral sex on you].” Then he turned to the reporter’s female producer, who was off-camera, and said, quote, “Or I’ll [eff] you. How’s that sound?” After the interview, Nugent’s wife told him to APOLOGIZE . . . and he did. The next day he called the guy and told him he’d been rushed to the hospital with a KIDNEY STONE after the interview . . . and he suggested that might have been responsible for his behavior.

“The Avengers” kicked some serious tail at the box office this weekend. Since its midnight release on Thursday, the movie has made just over $200 MILLION. That’s the best opening weekend for any film EVER. The previous record was set last year by “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2”, which made $168.2 million in its first weekend. Yeah, “The Avengers” beat that by more than $30 million. “The Avengers” was the only new movie out this weekend, and all the other movies saw their takes cut in half. Here are this weekend’s Top 5 movies anyway . . .
2.) “Think Like a Man”
3.) “The Hunger Games”
4.) “The Lucky One”
5) “The Pirates! Band of Misfits”
On Friday afternoon, AMANDA BYNES side-swiped a pickup truck with her Range Rover in Los Angeles . . . and just kept going. The driver of the truck called 911 and followed Amanda to a nearby gas station. For some reason, A POLICE HELICOPTER AND SIX SQUAD CARS were deployed over this nonsense. But in the end, the damage to the pickup was so minor that police bought Amanda’s story that she didn’t even know she’d made contact. So they didn’t charge her with hit-and-run. She and the other driver exchanged insurance info, and that was that. Amanda was arrested for driving under the influence last month after hitting a POLICE CAR at an intersection . . . and they’re also going to charge her with failing to take a breathalyzer or blood test that night. A week later she backed over a curb while TEXTING, but there weren’t any cops around, so she didn’t get in trouble for that. In March, she got a ticket for talking on her phone while driving . . . and she DROVE OFF before the cop brought the ticket to her car for her signature. She went to the police station later and signed it, though. BITCH BE TRIPPIN!
LINDSAY LOHAN will not be prosecuted for hit-and-run. Police decided that the Hookah Lounge manager who CLAIMED she’d bumped him was a, quote, “non-credible witness”
NO DOUBT made a one-minute video to say their next album is coming out on September 25th. It’s their first since “Rock Steady”, which came out in 2001. There’s no word on a title yet. They released a video of their announcement on YouTube……be warned…..it’s pretty annoying. But hey, it’s a YouTube video . . . and YouTube wasn’t around the last time they released an album . . . so we can cut them some slack.
JIMMY FALLON has announced that he’s releasing another comedy album. It’s called “Blow Your Pants Off”, and the cover has Jimmy lying on his stomach, with his BARE ASS showing. The album will have some original songs . . . and features guest appearances by Justin Timberlake, Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews, Eddie Vedder and Paul McCartney. It comes out June 12th.
As expected, 20th Century Fox has changed the name of the upcoming comedy “Neighborhood Watch”. It’s now just called “The Watch”. They did it to avoid bad publicity because of the TRAYVON MARTIN incident “The Watch” stars BEN STILLER, VINCE VAUGHN and JONAH HILL as friends who start a neighborhood watch group as an excuse to get some MAN-TIME together. But they end up uncovering a plot by aliens to take over the world. You can watch the NOT SAFE FOR WORK trailer BELOW…….the movie is in theaters on July 27th.
