Pick of the best stories & pics
“The 32-year-old was more than happy to get on all fours and be walked around like a chained animal much to the delight of Britney and the crowd.”
As you like!
Miley Cyrus snogged Katy Perry during her LA concert (music.uk.msn.com).
“To the delight of thousands of fans, the Wrecking Ball singer planted a kiss on Katy Perry during her Bangerz Tour concert in Los Angeles.”
It would have delighted thousands more that exceedingly long snaky tongue had lolled out and up Katy’s skirt.
Here’s Miley’s Bangerz tour performance in Los Angeles (carreck.com)…
And Katy performing “Dark Horse” at the 2014 Brit Awards in London (imgcelebs.info).
Updated 1st July 2015.
Link dead. Apologies.
“I just walked up to her to give her like a friendly girly kiss, you know, as girls do, and then she like tried to move her head and go deeper and I pulled away. God knows where that tongue has been. We don’t know! That tongue is so infamous!”
Miley countered with a tweet suggesting she knew exactly where Katy’s “ex boo” John Mayer’s had been.
Pixie Lott gave sideboob and… gapboob attending Brit Awards afterparty (celebrityoopsdigest
Oops! British model and socialite Poppy Delevingne—sister of Cara—gave a bush-baring vehicular escaping upskirt! (celebrityoopsdigest.blogspot.co.uk).
“The photos got blown out a bit being up so close, but I can’t help but feeling we’re seeing Ora patch.”
Regretably, I think we are just seeing some swell black lacy panties, but she did give some tongue! (celebritytonguedigest
Here’s Rita stripping to her bra performing at Philipp Plein Fashion Show in Milan (hawtcelebs.com).

Oops! Kimberley Garner flashed her ass in London (carreck.com).
Arts, culture, tech. & funnies
“Documentary looking into the secretive world of adult webcamming. Three online performers explain what it’s really like baring all, online, for strangers all over the world.”
Camming while cooking, guys who pay to watch girls play Xbox in their undies, your mum as your manager and the real inconvienence of late calling estate agents. A gritty perspective to be sure but informative from the view of the ex-porn performer who asserts how webcamming gives her more control of what she does.
“China’s Guangzhou Daming United Rubber Products has won the Guinness World Record for the thinnest latex condom. It’s just .036mm thick….”
Lets hope the bar for AQL (Acceptable Quality Level) is raised on that one! Despite the latex wafer thinness, street vox pop (mediacollege.com) there seems to highlight the incessant unpopularity of condoms worldwide, which seems evident so-far in the “Should condom use be mandatory in porn?” poll.
“Police say Mr Caminero told them he broke the art work in protest at the Perez Art Museum Miami’s failure to exhibit work by local artists.”
Speaking to the Miami Herald, Mr. Caminero said “I have not the right to break his piece”. I guess he just got carried a-wei.
I love the way that those $1m vases were just left on a low plinth like that waiting for someone to take an expensive tumble.
“The way to get more British women into sport and close the gender gap is to offer more ‘feminine’ sports like cheerleading and zumba.”
Definitely Zumba (dailymotion.com). Yep, you can see what is appealing to the feminine in that class.
.:: Top column 2 ::.
“The head of Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel was captured overnight by U.S. and Mexican authorities at a hotel in Mazatlan, Mexico, before being presented to the media as he was escorted onto a waiting helicopter en route to a secure facility.”
Laundry carts leaving the “secure facility”—in which El Chapo (“Shorty”) made his escape last time—will be prodded with bayonets for the indefinite future.
- “Chapo” Guzmán capture provides glimpse of Mexico’s past, future (insightcrime.org)
- US seeks extradition of world’s most wanted man (video.uk.msn.com)
- Mexican drug lord’s secret tunnel network to evade authorities (news.sky.com)
- Where is El Chapo’s beauty queen wife? Twenty-four-year-old goes to ground as drug lord husband faces extradition to U.S. after he was betrayed and caught (dailymail.co.uk)
Lots of back-patting in the Peña Nieto administration, but were events related to speculation aired a few weeks back: Could Chapo Guzmán be making a move against his Sinaloa Cartel partner? (insightcrime.org).
“The death, imprisonment and targeting of several members of Ismael ‘El Mayo’ Zambada’s faction of the Sinaloa Cartel points to a disturbing possibility for Mexico’s underworld: Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán may be making a play for his partner’s territory.”
Hmmm. There’s a lot of speculation going about as to who ratted who, but it’s as likely as anything an apprehended bodyguard gave them the final tip. Does it mean the end for the Sinaloa? Who will take over? Who is El Mayo?: Meet “El Mayo”: the likely new chief of the Sinaloa Cartel (fusion.net).
“El Mayo’s standing within the group means that El Chapo’s capture is not much of a blow for the Sinaloa cartel.”
El Mayo (“the May”), Guzmán’s number two in the feared Cartel de Sinoloa, has always opted for a lower profile than the flamboyant legend that embraced Guzmán, and if we are not to dismiss the unremitting corruption in Mexican politics and policing coming hot on the tail of allegations that the US DEA struck a deal with the Sinaloa cartel that helped their rise (businessinsider.com, Jan. 2014) that may currently suit some.
“The kingpin was last spotted by security cameras in the shower area of the Altiplano prison, 90 kilometers (55 miles) west of the capital, on Saturday night before disappearing, the National Security Commission said.
“An alarm was issued after ‘he was not visible’ for a while and ‘the escape of Guzman was confirmed,’ the commission said in a statement.”
Indeed, someone perhaps thought he was just in there for “protective custody” until feuds and political wind died down. Was it a laundry cart this time and did they just not notice his RENNTech SLR—a cop car clone—or armoured Jetta (jalopnik.com, Feb. 2014) conveniently waiting in the prison car park?
El Chapo’s 2nd escape could paralyze Mexico’s national security plans (insightcrime.org).
“Peña Nieto’s administration has captured nearly every big capo that his predecessor, Felipe Calderon, did not, including two top Zetas leaders, the head of the Betran Leyva Organization, the leader of the Juarez Cartel and the two leaders of the Knights Templar, among many others. These captures were, up until El Chapo’s escape, a powerful testament that something was going right.”
And “going right” enough for a return after all those rivals against which the Sinaloa—with widely reported allegations of collusion with Mexican federal government forces (npr.org, May, 2010)— had found them self hard pressed are now splintered enough for a return to a more quiet, low-key approach to business, and non-tax-deductable bribery? Perhaps the Chapo may testify (insightcrime.org, Sept. 2014) card played had a few more than those officially in the Sinaloa Cartel perturbed.
Updated 15th July 2015.
Mexican skepticism regarding the official story of El Chapo’s tunnel escape.
Chapo’s tunnel leads straight to Mexico narco-conspiracy hell (insightcrime.org).
“Logic plays only a small role in these theories. What, exactly, anyone would gain by making up this tunnel story—and going through the trouble of literally constructing the ruse—is not clear. The tunnel story is embarassing enough, and is perhaps even for mortifying for the Mexican government than if Chapo had walked out the prison’s front door. ”
Updated 15th July 2015.
Drug lord El Chapo’s escape caught on CCTV (news.sky.com).
“CCTV pictures of the moment notorious drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman escaped from his prison cell have been released by Mexican authorities. The security camera footage shows him walking to his bed where he sits and appears to change his shoes. He then walks to the shower and toilet area and just disappears.”
It also gives a peek at that snazzy motorcycle on rails he scooted off down the tunnel on.
Chapo’s escape promises renewed expansion from Sinaloa Cartel (insightcrime.org).
“Unlike the last few years prior to Guzman’s arrest, the Sinaloa Cartel does not have any adversaries of comparable power. Its foremost rivals—the Zetas, the Gulf Cartel, the Juarez Cartel, the Beltran Leyva Organization, and the Knights Templar—have been even more buffeted by government pressure than has Sinaloa. … Logic suggests that this is the perfect time for Guzman to rebuild his group’s hegemony, and swoop into areas where it had previously lost influence. Guzman may see opportunities to once more attempt a takeover of the northeastern corridor, which includes one of the nation’s most important border crossings in Laredo, with only weakened and warring factions of the Gulf Cartel and the Zetas left to oppose him.”
Could it have been “a plate shifting jolt to the nation’s organized crime landscape” if, hard pressed, he had not been taken out of the picture for a while? One may wonder how calmly El Mayo, who rose to take over during El Chapo’s incarceration, is taking things, and further wonder why—with the supposed rivalry—if he is.
Oh, it was a tunnel, like those he had used to evade capture and those used for smuggling and trips to SeaWorld… but with a motorbike!
“[Mexico’s National Security Commissioner] Monte Alejandro Rubido did not comment on why authorities had apparently failed to notice a [mile-long] long tunnel being built under the prison.”
“The news that El Chapo may testify against a key member of his own cartel is likely to be met with concern by other Sinaloa leaders, and particularly any who may have fallen out of his good graces.”
“In his account to the judicial authorities, El Condor warned that it is possible that a confrontation between Bravo and Damaso Lopez Nunez, The Bachelor, who is identified as one of the candidates to succeed El Chapo….”
So it seems The Bachelor likely shopped El Chapo and those untrusted or unwilling to switch are being given the pale horse to ride off on. Is it over or are other factions going to the mattresses? (phrases.org.uk).
“Much of the violence surrounding the Sinaloa Cartel in recent years was linked to personal feuds cultivated by El Chapo himself, both with other organizations and within his own.”
Further adding to speculation that enough involved just decided it was time for him to go?
“Marchers chanted ‘Freedom!’ and ‘Chapo!’ as they walked the streets of Culiacan, the Sinaloa state capital, and carried signs opposing possible extradition of the drug lord to the U.S., something Mexican authorities have already said won’t happen soon.”
