Kim Kardashian went to Bahrain to open a milkshake shop and police used tear gas to disperse a mob of Islamic extremists, one of whom held up a sign proclaiming “‘none of our customs and traditions allow us to receive stars of porn movies.”
Meanwhile, singer Alanis Morissette arrived in Israel for a concert in Tel Aviv, which sparked calls for a boycott from anti-Israel protesters.
On the subject of Alanis Morissette, Ben Howe informs us:
Random strange fact: Dave Coulier (Full House) is commonly accepted as the likely subject of the Alanis Morissette song “You Oughta Know.”

So I Googled it, and it’s true: When Morissette was a young singer in Hollywood, she dated Coulier, who is 15 years her senior and who was then starring as goofy “Uncle Joey” Gladstone on the family sitcom, Full House. And, yes, it seems her infamously angry song was about him:
When he first heard the song, “I said, ‘Wow, this girl is angry,’ “ he recalled. “And then I said, ‘Oh man, I think it’s Alanis.’ … I listened to the song over and over again, and I said, ‘I think I have really hurt this person.’ “
Let me remind you of a few choice lyrics from “You Oughta Know”:
An older version of me.
Is she perverted like me?
Would she go down on you in a theater? . . .
It was a slap in the face,
How quickly I was replaced.
Are you thinking of me when you f–k her? . . .
And every time I scratch my nails
Down someone else’s back, I hope you feel it.
Ouch. And she wrote that about the loveable clown from the wholesome TV comedy who did those silly Bullwinkle voices. Creepy.

I haven’t been this creeped out since I saw Mary-Kate Olsen’s boyfriend.
