Bush, George H. W. – When his granddaughter recited a few bars from Justin Bieber’s hit song “Baby,” the former president responded, “I don’t think I’d like it.” Some are calling it a diss, but the 88-year-old Bush probably said the same thing about Workaholics, quinoa, Instagram, and manscaping.

Corgan, Billy – The former Smashing Pumpkins lead singer said he will “piss on fuckin’ Radiohead” for the band’s “pomposity.” Ah, little Billy, again shooting for headlines in any way possible. I’ll let fellow Tweedler Lloyd handle this one.

Hough, Julianne – In a short interview with The Huffington Post, the star of the upcoming Rock of Ages describes a typical day on the set: “There was a baboon running free and everybody was standing as still as possible because you didn’t want to get mauled by a baboon.” To clarify, she was talking about an actual baboon, and not co-star Russell Brand.

MacFarlane, Seth – At a gathering in L.A. to help alleviate homelessness, MacFarlane ripped presidential contender Mitt Romney for his controversial profit-making techniques at Bain Capital. So the creator of Family Guy apparently doesn’t like it when someone takes an okay idea, bleeds it dry, beats it to death, and runs it into the ground.

Morrissey – The Smiths frontman received an apology from NME for supposed implications in a 2007 story that he was racist. Morrissey is still sad.

Snooki – Nude photos of Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi stolen from her cell phone were recently posted online. Coincidentally, “Snooki nude photos” was among the least popular search engine phrases last weekend.
