Mentally-Ill Man Slept on P. Diddy's Bed and Ate His Food

April 13, 2012 16:51:38 GMT


P. Diddy had a stranger on his bed, but not the kind that he wanted. A 30-year-old man named Quamine Taylor was arrested by police on April 1 after spending 24 hours in Diddy's Hamptons mansion, sleeping on the rapper's bed, wearing his best clothes, eating his food and taking a dip in his pool.

Taylor, who went in through unlocked basement door, told the security guards and police called to the scene that he knew Diddy personally when he accidentally triggered the alarm. Diddy was away at that time. "I really didn't go to Diddy's house because I'm a big fan of his," Taylor said. "I just wanted to get out of the city for a while. I was actually hoping to stay like 15 to 17 days." He added, "They really didn't bother me once I told them who I was. I got a good night's sleep, but it's not anything too special. It's just like a three-bedroom."

Catholic League Having Problem With Kate Upton's 'Nun Bikini'

April 13, 2012 16:25:10 GMT

Catholic League said "The Three Stooges" gave them a reason to think that Hollywood glorifies jokes on Catholicism. On Thursday, April 12, the organization slams the new 20th Century Fox movie for including a scene where swimsuit model Kate Upton, playing Sister Bernice, wears a "nun bikini".

The organization's president Bill Donohue said in a statement, "In the 1950s, Hollywood generally avoided crude fare and was respectful of religion. Today it specializes in crudity and trashes Christianity, especially Catholicism. Enter 'The Three Stooges'. The movie is not just another remake: It is a cultural marker of sociological significance, and what it says about the way we've changed is not encouraging."
