Funnyman Tracy Morgan is in hot water for making a series of very unfunny anti-gay remarks at a recent stand-up gig in Nashville. Morgan's distasteful comedy routine was brought to national attention by Nashville native Kevin Rogers who attended Morgan's comedy performance. Rogers wrote about the show on Facebook and according to his account, Morgan informed the audience "that the gays needed to quit being p—ies and not be whining about something as insignificant as bullying" and that "if his son that was gay he better come home and talk to him like a man…or he would pull out a knife and stab that little [n-----] to death." Yikes! The comedian released a statement apologizing for the offensive remarks. Morgan said, "I want to apologize to my fans and the gay & lesbian community for my choice of words at my recent stand-up act in Nashville. I'm not a hateful person and don't condone any kind of violence against others. While I am an equal opportunity jokester, and my friends know what is in my heart, even in a comedy club this clearly went too far and was not funny in any context." [Entertainment Weekly]

Selena Gomez Rushed to Hospital

Disney starlet Selena Gomez was rushed to a hospital last night after her appearance on The Tonight Show. Gomez was reportedly complaining of nausea and a severe headache. This has led to some speculation she may be pregnant. A representative for the singer said, "Last night after Selena's appearance on The Tonight Show, she wasn't feeling well and was taken to the hospital. She is currently undergoing routine tests." Gomez appeared on the late night talk show to promote her new film Monte Carlo. No one is blaming Tonight Show host Jay Leno for making Gomez sick. She displayed no signs of sickness as Leno quizzed her about getting her driver's license and her mom meeting her boyfriend Justin Bieber for the first time. Here's hoping she makes a speedy recovery. [People]

According to reports, in celebration of their 6th year of marriage, Jack White and his soon-to-be ex-wife Karen Elson are getting set to throw a party for friends and family in Nashville to celebrate their recent divorce announcement. "We remain dear and trusted friends and co-parents to our wonderful children Scarlett and Henry Lee," White and Elson said in a joint statement to the public. "We feel so fortunate for the time we have shared and the time we will continue to spend both separately and together watching our children grow." The party looks to celebrate the couple's "6th anniversary and their upcoming divorce with a positive swing bang hum dinger." This is actually pretty punk rock if you ask me. [TMZ]
