Sports: Amusing catfight #2: Shaq Vs. Stan Van Gundy

  • Flopping to me is doing it more than one time, and I realized when I tried to take the charge, as I went down, I realized that that play reminded me of his whole coaching career.
  • Shaquille O’Neal • On allegations by Stan Van Gundy that Shaq flopped during a game against Van Gundy’s Orlando Magic. O’Neal went further, saying that his former Phoenix Suns coach was a “master of panic” that screwed up their playoff run last season.

Music: Amusing catfight #1: The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne vs. Arcade Fire

  • I don’t know why people put up with it. I wouldn’t put up with it. I don’t care if it’s Arcade Fire or Brian Eno. If either of them walked into a room and treated people like (*&% I’d be like, ‘%*%& you, get outta here.’
  • Wayne Coyne • In a Rolling Stone interview where he ripped everyone’s favorite indie band a new one. Coyne has a history of this – he famously ripped Beck a while back. Arcade Fire lead singer Win Butler responded by saying he played with the Lips over three years ago when the band was jet-lagged. “I am not sure Wayne is the best judge,” Butler wrote. • source

  • Etta James • Regarding a recent outburst where she trashed Beyonce for singing “At Last” during President Barack Obama’s inaugural first dance. She was miffed for not getting picked but really meant no ill will, she says. Sure. • source

Culture: Etta James to Beyonce: Don’t mess with my signature song!

  • That woman he had singing for him … she’s gonna get her %*# whipped. The great Beyonce … I can’t stand Beyonce.
  • Etta James • at a concert last week in Seattle. James is upset that Beyonce sang her signature song, “At Last,” during Barack Obama’s first dance. Beyonce actually portrayed the legendary singer in last year’s “Cadillac Records,” and James had nothing but nice things to say about her back then. James also trashed the president, but we’re guessing she’s just upset at him for this dramabomb. • source
