Although last night's Teen Choice Awards were dominated by the appearance of the still-grieving Lea Michelle and the cast of Glee, the night proved a good one for One Direction, Pretty Little Liars, Pitch Perfect, and last year's Twilight sage finale: Breaking Dawn: Part Two. ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars won seven awards, including Choice TV Drama and Choice Villain. Pitch Perfect took five, including Choice Comedy Movie and Choice Comedy Movie Actress for Rebel Wilson. One Direction nabbed seven surfboards total, if you count Harry Styles winning in both the Choice Smile and Male Hottie categories.
Chris Brown is blaming the public for the seizure that he suffered Friday morning in a Los Angeles recording studio. According to his reps, Brown's doctor blames the non-epileptic seizure on " intense fatigue and extreme emotional stress." Brown himself tweeted on Saturday, “They won’t love you until you are a memory." The singer is currently working on his new album X. (No word on whether the instrumentation includes the world's smallest violins.)
Contact Music claims Barack Obama ripped the Kardashians during a visit to an Amazon.com warehouse in Tennesse. They quote him as saying, "The American Dream involved some pretty basic stuff. A good job where you felt some security. A good education... People felt if they worked hard they could get there... I don't think people went around saying to themselves, 'I need to have a 10,000-square-foot house'... I think, there has also been a shift in culture. We weren't exposed to the things we didn't have in the same way that kids these days are. There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Kids weren't monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success." Kris said, “I wasn’t aware that you could only set the bar so high and that we could only dream so big. I was taught dream big, work hard and you can have whatever you wanted. Kanye West doesn’t go on vacation ever… and Kim Kardashian is the hardest working young lady in the world. I bet the President has some friends with 10,000 square foot houses and that he wouldn’t mind going over there… when [he was] asking them to have a party for [him] while [he was] campaigning for dollars to run for president.”
