Kanye West and Kim Kardashian attend the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.
This weekend, Ben Affleck is scheduled to host “Saturday Night Live” for the fifth time. Affleck’s appearance is competing with other big SNL stories though, including cast members leaving and Kanye West going off on a rant on the show before his appearance as a musical guest.
West performed Wednesday night at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City for Adult Swim’s upfront presentation, and he had some unkind words about the idea of participating in any SNL skits this weekend.
“[I had a friend ask me, ‘Are you gonna go on] SNL and you’re going to do like a skit about the paparazzi and shit and like humanize yourself?’ I ain’t here to apologize to no motherf---ers man,” West reportedly said, according to Complex.
“Hell nah I ain’t doing no motherf---ing SNL skits, this my goddamn life. This ain’t no motherf---ing joke. That’s it. Stop that s--- right there.”

A baby boy named Liam.
The Social Security Administration just released a list of the most popular baby names in each state, as well as across the United States, for 2012. Jacob and Sophia are the kings and queens of babies both nationally and in California, but number 7 name Jayden moves up to number 2 for boys in California. Each of those number 1 names around 1 percent of the population nationally.
Nationally, the number 2 name for boys, Mason, doesn’t fare so well in California — here, it comes in at 17. There are some other big differences from the norm, with national number 5 William coming in at 31 and number 6 Liam at 24. Two other boys top 10 names didn’t make the cut in California.
Taking the place of those baby boys locally: Daniel, Matthew, Anthony, David and, all the way from number 29, Nathan.
American Idol judges Randy Jackson and Mariah Carey as the top 10 girls performed, Tuesday, March 5, 2013 — with a Coke Zero cup.
“American Idol” wants to stay relevant, but they’re facing a pop culture behemoth Thursday night for the second part of their two-night finale even as the show’s ratings decline: the series finale of “The Office.”
The top two Idols from this season, Candice Glover and Kree Harrison, will be facing off at the Nokia Theatre. They’re performing their potential winning singles and other songs on tonight’s one-hour show before a two-hour results show Thursday — which is going straight up against an “Office” special looking back at the series, followed by the giant-sized last episode which also features a jump forward in the show’s timeline.
"American Idol" has some other turmoil to deal with as well, with the only remaining judge who’s been there throughout the series, Randy Jackson, announcing his departure from the show last week.
Abercrombie and Fitch came under fire recently after a Business Insider piece exploring how the company doesn’t want anyone who doesn’t fit traditional norms of being cool and beautiful to wear Abercrombie, going so far as not making XL or XXL clothing for women because they don’t want overweight women in their clothes.
The piece also referenced a 2006 Salon article, quoting CEO Mike Jeffries, with remarks including, “A lot of people don’t belong [in our clothes], and they can’t belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely.”
Now a Los Angeles filmmaker is striking back.
In his video, Greg Karber buys Abercrombie clothing from a Goodwill and starts distributing it to a group that the company’s public statements would seem to indicate they would think was strongly off-brand: homeless people.

A general view of atmosphere at New York Comic Con - "The Walking Dead" at Javits Center on Oct. 15, 2011 in New York City.
It’s a story right out of AMC's “The Walking Dead,” or at least “Zombieland.” In a scheme probably slightly less clever than one from the Governor, a man hid in the back of a big-rig in Tennessee, then stole it after the driver crossed the country and stepped out near Temecula.
The reason? He told investigators he was fleeing zombies.
The man who fled zombies, Tennessee 19-year-old Jerimiah Hartline, pleaded guilty Monday to assault with a deadly weapon, hit-and-run causing death or injury and vehicle theft.
The California Highway Patrol says that Hartline was under the influence of a substance that led him to believe he was being chased by zombies (or “walkers,” for you TV fans).
In fact, he thought there were zombies clinging to the truck, forcing him to quickly swerve back and forth to shake them off. No video is available of the dramatic events that happened inside Hartline’s mind.
