Hell hath no fury like a Snooki scorned!

And it seems like these guys did some SERIOUS scorning!

We reported last year that the Jersey Shore star was in one nasty legal battle with SRG Ventures, as she claimed that they did not fulfill their obligations to earn her money and branding partnerships, and now, we've learned just how much they told her she would make: $100 million!

And guess how much she actually turned out? $250,000!

A source close to her reveals:

"Snooki filed a suit in October 2011 to end her relationship with SRG, as they didn’t deliver the deals or money they had led her to expect she would receive. Now she’s fighting back against the counterclaim that she didn't hold up her side of the agreement."

And her attorney, Brian Procel, elaborates:

Creationist Science Teacher Fired After BRANDING Image Of The Cross On Students!

Filed under: Icky Icky Poo

creationist-science-teacher-fired-for-branding-image-of-cross-onto-students

What on Earth?! This is absolutely insane!

An Ohio science teacher has been fired for not only attempting to preach Christian beliefs to his classes, but for taking it even further by using a scientific device to BURN the image of a cross into his students' arms!

Holy shiz!

The Mount Vernon school board reportedly attempted to have him dismissed after complaints that John Freshwater kept a Bible on his desk, but for some crazy reason he was able to successfully appeal the ruling.

However, after news came to light about the cross burnings, the school board accepted a state official's recommendation to terminate him last night, effective at midnight.

Unbelievable. So many layers of absolutely unbelievable.

What makes anyone think that they have any business forcing their beliefs on anyone else, let alone taking advantage of their position as an authoritarian and forcing young students to listen to it?!

We're not even going to TOUCH the fact that essentially branded kids!

That man should not be allowed ANYWHERE near children, let alone work again as a teacher!

Shameful!

RedOne: From Lady GaGa To New Record Label

Filed under: Music MinuteLady GaGa

Lady GaGa was an exceptional start, RedOne, but can you do better?

Obviously, it would be difficult to do so, but Lady GaGa’s frequent producer is launching a new record label 2101 with Universal Records.

RedOne’s new label will launch with Mohombi, a 23 year old singer-songwriter. Here’s what RedOne had to say about Mohombi:

"We are incredibly fortunate to be launching with an artist like Mohombi, who has so much potential. He is a powerhouse talent … writing, singing, performing, dancing … a true entertainer. Mohombi lifts my spirits and I believe he will elevate the world with his music."

RedOne went on to explain what he thinks is the key to success in the music industry: branding.

Here are his thoughts on the subject:

"I thank God for my knowledge of music. But the real secret is the artist. We did it right with Gaga. People are buying into her. The whole package - her lifestyle, her sound, her vision."

Right on, RedOne! And we’ll be sure to keep an ear out for your endeavors!
