no title

Oh no!

Miranda Lambert is the latest singer to cancel a performance because of her dang vocal chords!

The 31-year-old country star was supposed to have a concert in Calgary on Thursday but had to pull out due to "serious inflammation" of her throat.

However, fans of Blake Shleton's lady love don't have to be too disappointed because the Calgary Stampede venue is letting ticket-holders use their passes for any show this weekend as well as whichever date Miranda reschedules for once she's back to singing condition.

Life imitates art?

On Sunday, a Canadian man performed quite the stunt after he attached about 110 helium-filled balloons to a lawn chair — and no, he wasn't trying to recreate a scene from Pixar's Up!

In attempt draw attention to his company, Daniel Boria reportedly purchased a $10 green plastic lawn chair at his local Walmart and decided to soar over the city of Calgary, Alberta in an epic publicity stunt.

The trained skydiver planned to parachute from his lawn chair into the Calgary Stampede, an annual rodeo event — but the weather wasn't as cooperative as he planned!

Boria landed about a mile away from his target in an industrial field. Though he was uninjured, he was detained by police and charged with a count of mischief to property and causing danger to life!

While Boria was released Monday morning, the lawn chair and balloons are still at large. Check out the video of Boria taking off into the sky:

Bob Barker Upset Over Price Is Right Rodeo Prize

Filed under: TV NewsHorsesAnimal CrueltyFurBob Barker


During Bob Barker's run as host of Price Is Right there were never any cruel products offered as prizes.

He made sure they kept fur coats and cars with leather interiors off the show.

And now he is outright furious over the show's recent promotion of cowhide boots and the Calgary Stampede, a deadly rodeo.

Bob said:

"I am appalled and disgusted. First, tickets to SeaWorld and now the Calgary Stampede, which is notorious for horses falling to their deaths.

This never would have happened on my watch. I'm thankful to Drew Carey for keeping up my plea to spay and neuter your pets, but where is the show going in the quest for prizes?

You have to wonder what's next—a trip to Alaska to shoot wolves?"

We hope that Price Is Right will listen to Bob after all his years of service.

He of all people should still have some pull at that show.
