On a JetBlue flight from New York to Las Vegas yesterday, a group of passengers were forced to band together and subdue Clayton Osbon, a pilot who simply flipped out, behaving erratically, banging on the cockpit door and screaming out numbers.

On his radio show this morning, meanwhile, Carson Daly referenced the incident.

“Most of the people were on their way to some sort of security conference in Las Vegas,” he said. “It was like a bunch of dudes and well trained dudes… thank God.”

The Voice host then added, laughing: “With my luck, it would be like… ‘this is the flight going to [the gay pride parade] in San Francisco,'” changing his tone to sound more effeminate and saying: “Uh, we’re headed down to Vegas for the floral convention.”

The implication, naturally? Folks such as that would not have been able to bring down the JetBlue pilot.

A few hours after making the comments, Daly Tweeted an apology: “This morning on my radio show I attempted to make fun of myself & offended others by mistake. I sincerely apologize.”

Do you accept this apology? Do you think he should have made one?

 

Miley Cyrus has a famous friend in her fight for marriage equality.

In the latest issue of Attitude UK, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe comments on a number of societal issues, from the rise in teen suicide (“You used to be able to escape at the end of a day: now you can be hunted by mobile phone, Facebook, Twitter. It’s terrifying.”) to his feelings on gay marriage.

“The ultimate reason gay marriage should be legalized everywhere is because, as a kid, you look to your mum and dad and they’re married; then you look at the gay couple who’ve been together for the same amount of time, but because they can’t get married their relationship doesn’t seem the same,” the actor says, adding:

“Yes, gay marriage is about symbolically blessing a relationship, but the larger issue is about transmitting a fundamental message about equality. Gay people should have equality in law everywhere.”

Radcliffe is currently starring in The Woman in Black. What do you think of his stance on marriage?

Katy Perry returned to Twitter for the first time since her split from Russell Brand, and while she didn’t address that directly, she made a few telling remarks.

The 27-year-old, who has been laying low since Russell filed for divorce, thanked her fans for their concern and well-wishes during a very difficult time.

“I am so grateful for all the love and support I’ve had from people around the world,” she Tweeted. “You guys have made my heart happy again.”

Her words for certain other figures in her life? A little less kind.

Katy Perry, Sunglasses

Katy, who was married a little over a year, lashed out at her parents last night for speaking publicly about her split from Russell – in church no less.

Keith and Mary Hudson, who are both Christian ministers, said that Katy’s divorce was a blessing in disguise, generating interest in their ministry.

Katy Tweeted last night that no one speaks for her … including her family. It seems she’s not happy with the comments they’ve been making.

“Concerning the gossip, I want to be clear that NO ONE speaks for me. Not a blog, magazine, ‘close sources’ or my family,” the singer wrote.

Rodney Atkins Divorce Details: All About Safety

Rodney Atkins Divorce Details: All About Safety
Celebrity News

We have an update on the ugly Rodney Atkins situation.

As previously reported, the country singer was arrested last month on a charge of domestic violence that included trying to smother his wife with a pillow, an allegation Atkins denies. Now, TMZ has obtained the divorce documents between Rodney and Tammy Atkins and they at least prove the couple can agree on something.

Both sides acknowledge they are “unable to live together successfully as husband and wife,” while each says the other is “guilty of such inappropriate marital conduct as renders further cohabitation unsafe and improper.”

Tammy is asking for sole custody of the pair’s 10-year old son (who she also says witnessed his dad’s attack), along with alimony and child support payments.

The judge has agreed on a restraining order for the time being, barring Rodney and Tammy from “harassing, threatening, assaulting or abusing the other party.” That seems like a start.

George Takei Jokes About The Twilight Saga: It’s SO Bad!
Celebrity News

Will George Takei live long enough to prosper after making the following comments public?

In order to settle a feud between one Star Trek icon (William Shatner) and on Star Wars veteran (Carrie Fisher), this veteran actor has taken to the Internet and posted a message that he hopes will bring both sides together: let’s all hate on Twilight instead!

“What’s needed today now more than ever is star peace, for there is an ominous, mutual threat to all science fiction. It’s called Twilight and it is really, really bad,” says Takei.

The actor even gets rather specific in calling our Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and company, adding:

“Gone is any sense of heroism, camaraderie or epic battles. In its place, we have vampires that sparkle, moan and go to high school. Now, I’m not above mixing in a little sex appeal to spice up the fantasy, but sci-fi fans be warned, there are no great stories, characters or profound life lessons to be found in Twilight… In Twilight, the only message that rings through loud and clear is: ‘Does my boyfriend like me?’

“Let us band together to combat this mutual threat.”

Powerful words. Now you tell us: Which movie franchise is best?

Angelina Jolie on Nightline: About That Whole Marrying Brad Pitt Thing …
Celebrity News

Angelina Jolie is making the media rounds for her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, but the mom of six tackles difficult subjects in real life as well as on film.

The actress, 36, and her partner Brad Pitt, 47, are trying to balance their busy careers with raising Maddox, 10, Pax, 8, Zahara, 6, Shiloh, 5 and Knox and Vivienne, 3.

Like us, the brood is getting more curious about their marital status by the year …

Angelina Jolie on Nightline

When Nightline asked if she has plans to marry Brad. Her response: “The kids asked me the other day and I asked if it was just because they wanted to have a big cake.”

“They see movies that have the people getting married… you know, the happily ever after. Shrek and Fiona are married … We have explained that our commitment when we decided to start a family was the greatest commitment you could possibly have.”

“Once you have six children, you’re … you’re committed.”

True, in a sense. The couple has offered a number of different explanations for not tying the knot over the years, and despite celebrity gossip reports every few months suggesting a secret wedding is in the works … none is in the works.

Angelina’s full Nightline interview airs tonight at 11:35 p.m.
