While competing at the Toyota One Hit Wonder skiing event in Australia, Ruttiman took off all of his clothes before trying a 30-meter jump off a ramp. Showing a complete lack of skill, he headed straight into a crash-landing. Ruttiman stripped bare during the “game show” […]
Kanye West debuted a new haircut earlier this week, and (as we’ve come to expect from the most brilliant mind the world has ever seen) it is something Kanye would definitely refer to as “next level sh*t” if given the opportunity. Kanye has never been shy about sampling other people’s work in his music, so […]

Jared Leto is a man of many talents. The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman is a rock star, an Oscar winner and an ombre hair enthusiast. But at a recent concert, Leto proved he has another, less discussed talent. While performing “The End of All Days” in Toronto, Leto chose to act out a lyric […]
