Kanye West says his post-Grammys attack on Beck was misunderstood and that he hopes the two of them can 'still go play basketball and stuff.' There's probably nothing a short, pasty, white guy like Beck would rather do than play basketball.
Investigators have a video of the fatal car accident involving BRUCE JENNER. The video shows the immediate aftermath of the crash and the people who witnessed it. Unfortunately, detectives don't know who those witnesses are. They want to find out whether the Prius that was hit by the Lexus was stopped behind a line of cars waiting for the light to turn green, or whether it illegally stopped for another reason. The video shows Bruce wasn't being chased by paparazzi as Jenner family sources had claimed. Authorities say tests showed Bruce had a blood alcohol level of 0.00 at the time of the accident, so he's clear from that standpoint. A 911 call reporting the accident has also surfaced.

A fan of The Simpsons has an interesting theory about the show. Reddit user
Hardtopickaname thinks that Homer has been in a coma for most of the series and all the episodes are just in his imagination. In a season four episode called "Homer the Heretic" that aired in October of 1992, Homer starts his own religion and has some conversations with God. In the final one he asks 'what's the meaning of life?'
God tells him he'll find out when he dies and when Homer says he can't wait that long, God asks him, "You can't wait six months?" Six months later they aired the episode where Bart accidentally puts Homer in a coma with an exploding beer prank. Homer eventually wakes up from his coma, but Hardtopickaname proposes that, in reality, Homer never came out of his coma at all. He says because of this the characters don't age since that's how Homer remembers them before the coma. That also could explain why The Simpsons plots got more outlandish like Homer working for a super villain, not to mention all the celebrity visits - because it's just in Homer's imagination.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have terminated the contract of quarterback Josh McCown. The move clears salary cap space and since Tampa Bay has the No. 1 pick in the draft, it would seem likely they would pick either Florida State's Jameis Winston or Oregon's Marcus Mariotta.
Donald Harrison was living in suburban Pittsburgh when he was charged with assaulting a woman. An hour after the woman called police, Harrison decided it was time to leave Pennsylvania. He also decided it was a good idea to post that information on his Facebook page. Being one of his Facebook friends, the woman saw the post and notified police of the post, along with a follow up that said he was on his way to Spartanburg, South Carolina, along with a photo of him sitting in a bus. Police called the bus terminal, obtained the route information, and had an arresting officer waiting for Harrison at the next stop. Ambridge police Chief James Mann said, "We like it when dumb criminals assist us in our investigation."
