R&B duo K-Ci and JoJo reunite and then 1/2 of them promptly passes out on stage. *cough* crackhead *cough*

August 25, 2008

This is just 1 small example of why I love the internet. Thanks to a mobile camera phone and Youtube, you get to watch an example of an onstage meltdown all the way over in Australia.

A Perez Hilton sent this description to Perez’s site:

So last night some friends and I went to see a Jodeci “reunion tour” at the Enmore theater in Sydney. Mate, the whole thing was a disaster. First, one of the guys (Devante I think) didn’t even show up, so it became a K-ci and JoJo concert. JoJo came on stage and right away you could tell he was messed right up- he kept forgetting the words to songs and just was a general weirdo. But then, after about 40 minutes into the “show” he decided to sit right down on the floor. His brother, the other crackhead K-ci was trying his best to carry the show on his own. By far, the best part of the evening was when JoJo walked off stage for about 5 minutes, then came back out to sing “All My Life”- and PASSED OUT mid song. His brother told the audience that they were tired after their 24-hour flight and that JoJo had gotten dizzy.

Watch Jo Jo come out around the 0:55 second mark, followed closely by a bodyguard. It’s all downhill from there. I’m not sure what’s funnier, the guy passing out or K-Ci saying “Give it up for Jo Jo” while the guy is out cold on the stage.  Priceless.

Some great acoustic covers..no, seriously.

Awesome. Some mildly NSFW lyrics, but they fly by so fast nobody will notice.

“Straight Up” by Paula Abdul

“Yeah” by Usher

“Like a Prayer” by Madonna

So, your the prosecution and the “victim” and her parents won’t testify and claim she’s not in the video that your entire case is based on. What do you do? Why press ahead with the prosecution of course.

Kelly and the now 23-year-old alleged victim had denied they were on the videotape. She never testified, nor did her parents, which several jurors cited as a weakness in the prosecution’s case.

Without the alleged victim’s testimony, prosecutors relied in part on a witness who said she engaged in three-way sex with Kelly and the girl. Defense attorneys labeled that woman an extortionist, claiming she sought hundreds of thousands of dollars from Kelly in exchange for her silence.

The alleged victim’s family also presented a puzzle for the jury. Three relatives testified they did not recognize her as the female on the tape, while other relatives said that it was her.

I found an old email I received sometime back. Timeless.

**Editor’s note** We’d love to feature some redneck stuff here, too. We ran a Oompa-Loompa (guido) feature last week, but we’d love to move the focus to our fine southern friends. If you have a link drop us a a line, or leave a comment and we’ll get back to you.

Feel free to submit your own captions in the Comment section.

1. Earth, Water, and Fire-the actual elements, not the band.

2. This one befuddles me.

3. Part bikini, part beach umbrella, all good.

4. An example of what happens when you pay $5k for your rims and tires; unable to pay for your date’s dress….well, all of it at least.

5. Somewhere a stripped-down living room set sits alone.

6. NBA players relegated to attending high school proms to avoid violence/arrest.

7. One of the least obvious elements to this picture is the mismatching of athletic sneakers with formal-wear. For shame!

8. Flaunt them while you can, I suppose.

9. This is not “The Answer” to any question.

10. For the fashionable, yet pregnant, high school prom guest.

11. While vinyl shower curtains will certainly deflect punch, I doubt it breathes.

12. She wanted a “safe” date, he wanted someone to try his latest design. Everybody wins.

13. Bad fashion sense knows no color barriers.

14. Umm….uh…..<shudders>

15. Inspired by Ice Cube’s “Ghetto Bird” from his album, “Lethal Injection”
