Giants cursed by Kimye?

As the world is still reeling from Kanye West’s proposal to Kim Kardashian at AT&T Park, Giants fans are worried their sacred ground has been tainted.

According to Radar Online, fans have taken to Twitter in droves to decry the voodoo hoodoo that such an unholy union might bring to their team.

“I’m dubbing it ‘The curse of Kimye’ Giants fans,” says one tweeter. “That proposal cost you. Next World Series win — somewhere north of never.”

Another posted: “Kim and Kanye engaged in SF. Just ruined the magic of AT&T park. Cubs have the curse of the billy goat. Giants now have curse of Kimye.”

Aren’t these folks looking at it the wrong way? Kimye has taken mediocrity and turned it into a million-dollar success. The Giants could use that next season.

RFK Jr. defends convicted cousin

Disgraced Kennedy-dynasty felon Michael Skakel was recently granted a new trial, and his cousin Robert F. Kennedy Jr. continues to offer weird explanations about the murder. Skakel was convicted of killing his neighbor Martha Moxley in 1975 when both were 15. The case has garnered a ton of attention due to inconsistencies, and a Connecticut judge has ordered a retrial.

According to Gawker, when RFK Jr. went on “Today” and was asked, to paraphrase, “If not Skakel, then who?” he proffered that none other than Kobe Bryant’s cousin Gitano “Tony” Bryant knows who did. He said the perpetrators may be his friends from the Bronx, who allegedly stormed Greenwich, Conn., the night of Moxley’s death.

This will be an interesting one to watch.

Racist ‘Chinese Food’

Patrice Wilson, the man behind the infectious — as in “virulent” — song “Friday” hit the jackpot again when his latest venture, “Chinese Food,” debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at No. 29.

Yet the video for the song — a simplistic ditty with robotic, generic pop hooks and inane lyrics — is generating some flak. Singer Alison Gold, a perky, 12-year-old blonde, delivers her paean to chow mein while producer Wilson dances around in a panda suit — and somehow Japanese geishas show up. It’s prompted many to decry the video for generalizing all Asians at best, and being racist at worst.

Meanwhile, the rest of us are kicking ourselves that we haven’t been the first to deliberately create bad music for easy profit. D’oh!FeaturesGossipKanye WestKim KardashianSan Francisco Giants
