Stephen Hawking Believes in Aliens

By

“We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet. I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they can reach. [Contacting aliens would be] a little too risky … If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans.”

— Stephen Hawking, as quoted in Discovery Channel’s three-part series Stephen Hawking’s Universe, is wary of aliens and nervous about direct contact.

Other highlights from his trip included a trip to Notre Dame (“AT NOTRE DAME! WALKING AROUND THE STREETS OF PARIS WITH THE BADBOY FAMILY!!! J’ADORE PARIS!!”) and the Eiffel Tower (“At the Eiffel Tower drinking Ciroc straight no chaser!!!”). As we’ve never been big fans of La Joconde’s cryptic smile, we thought that the Diddy-fication of da Vinci’s famous work was a vast improvement. In fact, it made us wonder how Diddy could improve other works of art around the… Read More

Last night, after their massive New York debut to thousands at Madison Square Garden with Depeche Mode, Peter Bjorn & John and Stereogum planned a last-minute gig at the very intimate Cake Shop.

Five of the Worst Raps by Celebrities

By

Some rappers can dive right into the acting world; Ice T is lovely as a detective, Ludacris (errm, Christopher Bridges) was good in Crash, and once upon a time, before he was the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Will Smith rapped. The opposite isn’t usually true. If you can’t flow, don’t flow, please. With that in mind, after the jump and in no particular order, a look at five of the worst celebrity rap attempts.
