    Quite the fiasco indeed.

    The only thing missing was a giant vaudeville hook to collect rapper Lupe Fiasco after he was asked to leave and then forcefully removed by security from a stage in Washington during an Obama inaugural celebration event on Jan. 20.

     

    According to CBS News, the 30-year-old artist was performing his song “Words I Never Said" at The Hamilton and rapped during the track, “Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist/ Gaza Strip was getting bombed, Obama didn't say sh-t. That's why I ain't vote for him, next one either."

    Foreign Policy staff writer Josh Rogin tweeted his account of the event, writing, “Lupe Fiasco just got thrown off stage here at the Hamilton Live after he went on an anti-Obama diatribe mid set.”

    He also tweeted, “So Lupe played one anti-war song for 30 min and said he didn't vote for Obama and eventually was told to move on to the next song…Lupe refused to move to the next song so a team of

    The Champs Elysees is arguably the most famous street in Paris, and possibly in all of France. But actress Diane Kruger wore an outfit more reminiscent of her native country to switch on the legendary French lane's Christmas lights on Wednesday night.

    Born in Algermissen, Germany, Kruger headlined the highly-attended annual lighting ceremony in a deep greenish gold brocade dress, an outfit that looked like a high-fashion adaptation of the traditional German style of dress called a dirndl. Originally a sturdy outfit for peasants living in the Alps, Kruger looked ready for the cold French night in the thick dress by Paris fashion house Lanvin, with a black roll neck shirt underneath for extra warmth. Over-the-knee boots by Brian Atwood helped keep her lower half toasty warm, too.

    But topping off the 36-year-old's German look were two "Heidi"-esque braids tucked on the top of her blond head. Both Kruger and Florence Welch from Florence and the Machine rocked this look in Europe recently, predicting it to be a popular look.

  • Anthony Kiedis on stage, July 2012 (Getty Images)Remember when rock stars used to be bad examples? Especially in matters of health? Hard to remember that far back, now, perhaps, but there was a time when, if we were to think of a 50-ish rocker, we'd gently hum that Pink Floyd song about being "shorter of breath and one day closer to death."

    But Anthony Kiedis, who turns 50 this week, represents the new paradigm of the anti-geezer, middle-age-defying rock god. He's buffer than buff, held up as the model of healthy living by Men's Fitness magazine, and very likely to outlive the cockroaches that will outlive the apocalypse.

    Asked about approaching the big five-oh, Kiedis recently told England's Q magazine: "I like the idea of defying the convention of what it is to be in your 40s, or 50s, or 60s. Discovering surfing at this stage of my life is definitely going to keep me active till the day I die. So, yeah, I accept the challenge… In the same way that [the late American exercise and nutritional guru] Jack LaLanne did—doing things in
