Vive has sensors attached that can detect how drunk and/or dehydrated you are which is super

teen pizza balls arrested

This is awful! 

And makes us kind of never want to eat pizza again!!!

A pizzeria called Georgetown's Papa Murphy's Pizza in Texas may have a shortage of customers once this story gets passed around the neighborhood! 

Apparently a teenage employee at the pizza shop admitted to rubbing his, *ahem*, testicles all over a customer's pizza, but his reasons for such an atrocious act are seriously confounding!

Joan Rivers' & Robin Williams' People Covers Outsell Angelina Jolie By A Landslide!

Print media may be on its way out, but People magazine had three very special issues in the last few weeks that brought readers back.

On an average week, People sells about 822,000 issues.

The exclusive wedding photos of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt (for which the mag reportedly paid a cool $2 mil) kicked that average up to about one million issues.

The tribute issue to Robin Williams did even better, selling about 1.2 million copies.

But Joan Rivers outsold them all. The cover story of her legendary life sold over 1.3 million issues! That's an increase of over 60%! 

We figure beating Brangelina is just about as Hollywood as you can get. And it's just what Joan would have wanted.

​Kardashian Khaos In Las Vegas Is Going To Close After Only Three Years

kardashian khaos las vegas closing

The end of another Kardashian chapter!

Since 2011, we've seen Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian smile for the cameras at their Kardashian Khaos boutique in Las Vegas, but those days are over.

A new report states that the store, which featured the family's likeness on everything from beach towels to playing cards, will be closing on October 30, just days after Kim's birthday!

The good news for Kardashian fans is that until then, they can buy things both at the store and online for 50% off!

We're sure the girls aren't too torn up over it though, because not only did they recently reveal their kids clothes, but they're also debuting a hair product line next year!

They are some seriously busy business women!

Some People Are Not Thrilled About Apple's U2 Giveaway! Here's How You Can Delete The Album Forever!

| Filed under: Music MinuteBusiness Blitz

Hmmm, we guess soft-rock ballads aren't as popular as Apple thought!

Last Tuesday, Apple gifted its iTunes users with a free U2 album, Songs of Innocence.

What was intended as a kind gesture has actually become a nightmare for some of Apple's millions of users!!

So, if you're not too keen on U2's tunes, here's how you can delete the album FOREVER.

All you have to do is sync your phone with your iTunes, go to the music tab, and uncheck the album.

OR if you're old-school and/or hate yourself, you can laboriously uncheck each song individually.

Either way, don't freak out if you're unhappy with Songs of Innocence taking up space in your iTunes. THERE IS HOPE.
