We doubted that this would even cause her to bat an eyelash in the first place!

Joe Francis is apparently none too pleased with Madonna for using his trademarked title Girls Gone Wild as a song on her new album, MDNA, without his consent, and fired off a cease-and-desist letter to the pop icon, essentially banning her from performing the track during her halftime performance at the Super Bowl!

Pot Smokers More LESS Likely To Be Obese?!

Filed under: DrugsFitnessHealthObeseSmoking

marijuana and obesity

Say what!?

A new survey of health and drug use has found that people who smoke pot regularly are LESS likely to be obese. Yes, you read that right and it's not a typo.

The survey showed that nearly 25% of people who didn't toke up were obese, while only 17% of potheads cannabis users were obese.

Even more in line with those in favor legalizing the drug, obesity was less common as usage INCREASED! In one survey, only 14% of participants who got high three or more days a week were obese!

Confused? So are the scientists behind the study, one of which said:

"I would be surprised that cannabis use is associated with a higher rate of physical activity."

LOLz! We would be too.

Hollywood's most unpredictable warlock is up to his old tricks, creating controversy for himself, by admitting that while he was filming his now iconic role as Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn in Major League, he was juiced up on steroids for over a month!

Tattoo Lawsuit Could Delay The Release Of The Hangover, Part II!

mike-tyson-tattoo-lawsuit-could-delay-release-of-the-hangover-part-2

Holy shiz! We guess he has some serious legal standing!

As we reported, award-winning tattoo artist S. Victor Whitmill, who is responsible for the design inked on Mike Tyson's face, recently filed a lawsuit against Warner Brothers for depicting a similar tattoo on Ed Helm's character in the upcoming Hangover, Part II, claiming that he was never asked permission for its usage.

Well, it looks like the case is moving forward, and if the judge rules in his favor, it would effectively block the much-anticipated sequel from being released!

Warner Brothers has responded to the suit in a brief to Judge Catherine D. Perry, claiming that a delay in releasing the film would incur massive costs, and asserting that Whithill charges are just a 'radical claim that he is entitled, under the Copyright Act, to control the use of a tattoo that he created on the face of another human being' and that the film's usage of the design falls under 'fair use' because Tyson and his ink are well-known in pop culture.

We're not going to lie, this case really does raise a lot of fascinating questions about intellectual property law!

But we hope that they can reach some sort of resolution - and fast!

If Warner Brothers loses this one, this movie is going to be EFFED!

What do U think?? Does Whithill have a fair argument??

She is always so well-spoken!

We LOVE her!

Check out this fascinating interview with First Lady Michelle Obama on The Today Show this morning (above), in which she talks about her husband Barack kicking his smoking habit, her children, and whether or not she allows them to have Facebook!

Agreed 100%, bb! No need for them to have it so young - it started out with college students in mind, after all!

Her comments on the social networking site start around the 13:40 mark, but we suggest watching the whole thing! She is one classy lady!

Canada To No Longer Offer Unlimited Internet??

Filed under: CanadialandTech Talk

canada-to-regulate-unlimited-internet.jpg

OMG!! This is a life changer!!!

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission have settled a debate on whether or not to regulate internet usage, particularly among smaller ISPs.

If the regulation were to pass, Canadian internet users would be billed on usage, much like other utilities, rather than being charged a steady monthly price.

Basically, consumers and business owners would not only be responsible for monthly broadband access, but they would also have to pay for any data they use beyond a certain limit.

Yikes!!

As for now, the regulator will be in review for 60 days before any action will take place.

Canadians, what are your thoughts???
