Now Fergie’s Bisexual

Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie is the latest celebrity to admit to a lesbian love affair.  The 34-year-old pop star told UK’s The Sun, “Put it this way, I’ve experimented definitely, but I have never had a steady girlfriend.” Fergie can be seen getting some girl-on-girl action in the new music video for the Black Eyed Peas latest single "I Got A Feeling." Fergie joins other celebs such as Megan Fox, Lady GaGa, and Lindsay Lohan in the sexy bisexual celebrity club. [The Sun]

China Demolishes Sex Theme Park

A sex theme park in China has been demolished before it even opened its doors. Love Land was set to become China’s only theme park dedicated to sex. Exhibitions at the park included “giant-sized reproductions of male and female anatomy, dissertations on how the topic of sex is treated in various cultures, and what the official China Daily newspaper called 'sex technique workshops.'" Chinese officials refused to comment on why the park was demolished. [AOL]

Concept Art for Whiplash

Mickey Rourke is in Iron Man 2, though we haven’t seen any leaked photos of him from the set or back stage. However, a juicy little bit of concept art for his character has surfaced -- now, whether or not this is legit is open to question. But it has yet to be debunked, which means it’s still newsworthy. And the art is pretty dang awesome, too. If this is what Rourke winds up looking like in the sequel then we can probably expect his character to be putting down the pain. It’s about time Tony Stark got a real opponent. [Latino Review]

$12 Million Ferrari Breaks Auction World Record
Recession be damned, when the ultra rich need a rare vintage Ferarri, they get it! RM Auctions and Sotheby's made history yesterday, selling a 1957 Ferrari 250 TR for $12,156,252 (€9,020,000), a new world record for most expensive car to be sold at auction. With only 21 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossas with the Scaglietti-designed pontoon fender body, it is one of the rarest Ferarris in existence. Add to that the very unique and quite sexy black and red paint, the great history -- it was the fourth Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa built -- and the absolutely pristine restored condition, and you've got a $12 million Ferarri.

Eminem Says He's "Done" with Guns

Eminem apparently despises firearms and doesn’t want to be around them after two of his uncles committed suicide and his best friend, rapper Proof, was shot dead. He told the Detroit Metro Times newspaper: “For me, personally, I mean, I'm done with guns. You know what I mean? They certainly never ever brought anything good into my life. Especially with my own family and our history of suicide and s**t like that. And my own personal experience with guns. And then you lose your best friend to guns. Guns are just bad news.” [AZ Central]

Libertines Reunite at London Club

Three of the four Libertines, Pete Doherty, Carl Barât, and Gary Powell, reunited early Saturday morning at the London club the Rhythm Factory. Even though bassist John Hassell was "out of the country" and couldn't make the full reunion complete, this is the first time drummer Powell has been involved in anything with band leaders Doherty and Barât since the group broke up in 2004. The gig was a tribute show in honor of late music promoter and Libertines supporter Johnny "Rhythm" Sedassy. There's no other news of an official Libertines reunion tour or album. [NME]

Twitter Toilet Uploads Your "Data" to the Internet
Twitter has officially jumped the shark. HackADay recently documented the world's first Tweeting crapper. The idea is pretty simple -- each time the toilet is flushed, it uploads tweets to the website, different tweets are based on the number of flushes performed. You know how people wonder how the machine uprising is going to start? Well, when the Twitter toilet starts posting on, you'll know it's time to stock up on ammo. [HackADay]
