Pop Culture Hot List
What's the best way to get in the head of the opposing team? Perhaps by donning a mask that resembles a player's wife. That's exactly what Celtics fans did during the NBA finals when they covered their faces with Khloe Kardashian cut outs. Lamar Odom must have thought his wife was cloned.
Carrie Underwood showed off her skills while playing in the City of Hope 20th Annual Celebrity Softball Challenge in Nashville. To date, the event has raised more than $2 million for City of Hope which is a research and treatment center for cancer and other serious diseases. Unfortunately, Underwood's team, Grand Ole Opry was defeated by After MidNite with Blair Garner.
Add Morgan Freeman to the list of soccer-loving celebrities. Freeman recently joined the committee dedicated to bringing the World Cup to the U.S. The cause seems right up the actor's alley, as he's starred in such sports movies as Million Dollar Baby and Invictus .
What does a pop star do on a day off? Go to a Mets' game, of course. Lady GaGa watched the Amazins take on the San Diego Padres at Citi Field and, true to form, she made quite a fashion statement at the sporting event.
Music artists can't seem to get enough of the World Cup. Many were there for the opening ceremony, including Shakira, Alicia Keys and fiance Swizz Beatz, and Taboo and Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas.
John Travolta, wife Kelly Preston and daughter Ella made an appearance at the World Cup. Travolta flew his family in his Boeing 707 into Lanseria Airport, near Johannesburg and later gave a pep talk to the Australian team before its game against Germany. Unfortunately, Germany defeated the Socceroos 4-0.
We hope "Celebrity Rehab" paid well. Ex-basketball player Dennis Rodman has supposedly neglected to pay child support and now owes more than $300,000. Rodman better have some money saved or projects in the works because his estranged wife wants the money ASAP.
Katy Perry had quite a conundrum on her hands when the U.S. faced England in the opening round of the World Cup. While Perry wanted to root for her own country, she also felt the need to support fiance Russell Brand's native England. How did she solve the dilemma? By wearing a dress that featured both the Stars and Stripes and Union Jack.
Robert Green has been called a lot of things since he let in a soft goal against the U.S. But before we continue the name calling, we should bring a very serious subject to light. Green was playing with an injury... a broken heart, that is. It is reported that the keeper recently broke up with his model girlfriend, Elizabeth Minett.
Add this to the list of unnecessary reality TV shows. Laurence Sunderland, father of 16-year-old sailor Abby Sunderland who was recently rescued from her solo trip around the world, has supposedly shopped around reality show "Adventures In Sunderland". He hopes the program will encourage kids to try new things.
