Craziness is Jennifer McCarthy's warm gun

Posted: January 10, 2014

GIVING NEW meaning to the term "money shot," Jennifer McCarthy (the ex-wife of Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Cormac McCarthy and not the wacky "View" co-host) was arrested Saturday in New Mexico for pointing a silver handgun at her boyfriend.

McCarthy had taken the handgun from her vagina, where, according to thesmokinggun.com, "it had been placed while the accused was performing a sex act," police allege.

Talk about a smoking gun.

McCarthy's boyfriend, who wasn't identified, told investigators that following an argument about space aliens, McCarthy emerged from her bedroom, says the court filing, "wearing lingerie and a silver handgun in her vagina."

Hi-yo Silver.

While having inner course with the pistol, McCarthy reportedly asked her boyfriend, "Who is crazy, you or me?"

Is that a trick question?

After removing the gun from its hole-ster, investigators say Jenny from the Glock pointed it at her boyfriend's head.

The one atop his shoulders.

Fortunately, he was able to get the gun away.

* Believe it or not, this is not a new storage place for a small firearm. In Oklahoma last July, a 28-year-old woman who hid a loaded .22 in her own chamber was sentenced to 25 years in prison, according to the Smoking Gun.

Note: This is a dangerous way to trigger an orgasm.

No plea for Brown

Chris Brown's lawyers told a Washington, D.C., judge yesterday that the singer has rejected a plea deal on a charge that he hit a man outside a Washington hotel.

Prosecutors had offered a deal in which Brown would plead guilty to the misdemeanor assault charge he faces. One of Brown's lawyers, Danny Onorato, said outside court that attorneys rejected the deal because Brown is not guilty.

Brown's lawyers said in court that they expect a trial date to be set at another hearing, scheduled for Feb. 20.

Brown was arrested in October after a man said the singer struck him outside the W Hotel when he tried to get in a picture Brown was taking with two other people. Brown's bodyguard Christopher Hollosy is also accused of striking the man, and his lawyer says he rejected the same plea deal.

Prosecutors said in court they will be turning over substantial video surveillance shortly.

At the time Brown was charged in Washington, he was on probation in California for his 2009 face beating of then-girlfriend Rihanna. As a result of the D.C. charge, his probation in California was revoked, but the ruling didn't alter a requirement that Brown complete rehab and community service, including roadside cleanup and graffiti removal.

Brown has to return to court in California on Feb. 10 for an update on his progress in rehab.

Mark Geragos, Brown's California lawyer, brought some of his high-priced billable hours to the hearing in Washington. Geragos said Brown's lawyers plan to ask that he not have to appear at the Feb. 20 hearing in Washington because he loses three days of treatment by making the trip.

TATTBITS

* The Insane Clown Posse sued the U.S. Justice Department yesterday over a 2011 FBI report that describes the rap-metal duo's devoted fans, the Juggalos, as a dangerous gang, saying the designation has tarnished reputations and hurt business.

The ACLU filed the lawsuit in Detroit federal court on behalf of the duo's Violent J (a/k/a Joseph Bruce) and Shaggy 2 Dope (a/k/a Joseph Utsler). It also names four fans as plaintiffs.

The FBI report labeled the Juggalos as a "loosely organized hybrid gang." It said those who identify as Juggalos have committed assaults and vandalism, and a "small number" of them have engaged in more serious crimes.

(On the plus side, as a "hybrid gang," they're environmentally conscious.)

The suit contends that the gang designation violates free-speech and due-process rights.

* In case you head to Broadway this spring and can't get into "The Lion King," USA Today says that "Holler If Ya Hear Me," a new musical inspired by the lyrics of the late Tupac Shakur, will begin performances on May 26 at the Palace Theatre, with a scheduled opening of June 19.

* Jazz pianist, composer and Kennedy Center honoree Herbie Hancock has been named the 2014 Charles Eliot Norton Professor of Poetry at Harvard. He'll be delivering six lectures on "The Ethics of Jazz" in February and March at the freezing Cambridge school next to the Charles River, covering such topics as "The Wisdom of Miles Davis" and "Cultural Diplomacy and the Voice of Freedom."

Hancock says his lectures will cover the practical lessons he's learned about the harmonious connection between "the essential values in jazz and the values of Buddhism."

Established in 1925, the Norton Professorship has been awarded to important figures in the arts, including T.S. Eliot, Igor Stravinsky and Leonard Bernstein.

* Nielsen Entertainment announced late Tuesday that Justin Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience" was the top-selling album of 2013 with 2.4 million units sold. Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" was the best-selling song with 6.4 million tracks sold.

New releases from Eminem and Luke Bryan rounded out the top three albums. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" and Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive" placed second and third on the singles list.

Overall, albums sales were down from 316 million last year to 289.4 million in 2013. Single tracks were down 6 percent. Streaming, however, was up 32 percent with 118.1 million streams. Baauer's "Harlem Shake" topped the year with 489,674,000 streams.

And you know what they say, 489,674,000 streams and a token can get you on the subway.
