When James Blunt posted a picture of himself standing near a building from Auschwitz, he probably wasn’t expecting quite so much feedback. His fans on Facebook, however, had much to say.
Blunt posted the picture with the caption “Uh, this is my hotel in Poland.” After that, nearly 17,000 people decided to give the singer a piece of their minds.
The singer, who rose to fame with his hit “You’re Beautiful,” was actually staying in a five-star hotel, not the former Nazi death camp. In fact, he has only been staying in five-star hotels throughout his current tour. His latest stop at the Life Festival at Mosir Stadium is just down the road from Auschwitz.
Despite the barrage of complaints from fans, Blunt has left the picture on his Facebook page.
Late night talk show host Chelsea Handler beat out comedian Ellen DeGeneres as the funniest woman on the Web, according to a list released Tuesday. The list by PeekYou, a search engine that ranks individuals’ online prominence, found that Handler was picked as the top 10 women who cracks the best jokes on television and on Twitter and Facebook. DeGeneres came in second place, while other funny ladies like Kathy Griffin, Maria Bamford and Jackie Kashian followed behind. The top list also made room for Handlers’ friends and frequent panelists on E!’s “Chelsea Lately” show, including Jen Kirkman, Lonnie Love, Natasha Leggero, Heather McDonald and Sarah Colonna. With the success of her 2010 hit book, “Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang” and comedy tour, which grossed more than $16 million, Handler is planning to embark on yet another stand-up comedy tour, reports Entertainment Weekly. The comedienne, who is reportedly dating rapper 50 Cent, will launch the “Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me” tour, which shares a title with her upcoming book, in Boston on May 10. Fellow comedians McDonald, Brad Wollack and Josh Wolf will join the star on multiple dates. Handler will perform shows in cities including Chicago, Phoenix and Los Angeles as well as New York, Houston and Minneapolis before wrapping up on June 25 in Seattle.
