People: Harry’s Vegas frolic didn’t stay in Vegas
Britain’s Prince Harry has been caught on camera doing something embarrassing – again.
Celebrity gossip website TMZ on Tuesday posted photos of the 27-year-old royal cavorting nude with an unidentified woman in a VIP suite in Las Vegas. It’s hardly the first time the prince – who allegedly disrobed as part of a game of strip pool – has been filmed in a compromising situation. The third-in-line to the throne was famously photographed wearing a Nazi uniform for a costume party, and in another photo gaffe he was seen cupping the breast of a female TV presenter. Some would argue footage in which he was heard to utter a racial slur while teasing a fellow army cadet from Pakistan was more serious.
Cool J nabs burglary suspect at home
The Los Angeles Police Department is trying to learn more about the transient who allegedly burglarized the home of actor-rapper LL Cool J.
Officials don’t know the name of the suspect, who suffered a broken nose and jaw in what police sources described as a “knock-down, drag-out” fight.
Los Angeles police were called to the star’s home about 1 a.m. Wednesday, officials said. LL Cool J was holding the suspect when officers arrived, officials said.
LL Cool J was upstairs in his home when he heard noise coming from the kitchen area. When he went to see what was happening, the unidentified suspect allegedly came at him, leading to the fight.
Ryan agrees not to take it anymore
Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider has asked Republican vice presidential running mate Paul Ryan’s camp not to play his hit song, “We’re Not Gonna Take It.”
Ryan spokesman Brandon Buck wrote a pithy email in response: “We’re Not Gonna Play It anymore.”
Snider said in a statement that he does not support Ryan and denounced the use of the song, an anthemic 1984 hit for the glam metal band.
It joins a long list of songs that musicians have asked politicians to stop using. Most recently, the rock band Silversun Pickups asked likely Republican nominee Mitt Romney to stop using the song “Panic Switch” last week. The campaign said the song’s use was inadvertent.
