Minnie Driver Butchers The National Anthem

6/9/2015 3:54pm EDT
Minnie Driver
Minnie Driver performed the National Anthem at a Los Angeles Dodgers game on Saturday... but she couldn't quite remember the lyrics. In front of thousands of fans at Dodger Stadium (plus the Dodgers and the St. Louis Cardinals), the English actress proudly belted out "O'er the ramparts we... hailed... were so gallantly streaming."

("O'er the ramparts we watched" is the real line, of course).

Minnie flubbed the anthem not once, but twice, according to Entertainment Tonight. Towards the end, she sang "Oh say can that star-spangled banner yet wave" instead of "oh say does that star-spangled ...

Michael Bolton Pokes Fun At Himself In 'Office Space' Sketch
Who knew Michael Bolton had acting chops and a sense of humor.

Bolton took to the CGI screen with Funny or Die and poked fun at himself by recreating scenes from "Office Space." In the 1999 film, David Herman played a disgruntled cubicle worker who shared the same name as the famous Michael Bolton.

In the video, the real Michael Bolton is dubbed into scenes with Samir (Ajay Naidu), and the Bobs (John C. McGinley, Bob Porter) - we also get the famous fax machine gangster style beat down.

We applaud and appreciate Mr. Bolton and agree that he is a “talented ass-clown,” (actor that is) as ...

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wore this bizarre combination to the British Fashion Awards. What's with celebrities wearing bad fashion to fashion awards? Our beef is with her pants, which come in three colors for no discernible reason. It almost looks like she's wearing thigh-high boots.

Pop star-turned-TV personality Paula Abdul shamed Michael Bolton for his poor babysitting skills on TV Monday night.

The "Straight Up" singer confirmed reports that Bolton looked after her when she was seven - and her older sister went out with his then-girlfriend, Maureen - and he wasn't the most responsible sitter in the world.

Appearing on late-night show Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Abdul told the host, "I used to get so p**sed off when he'd babysit me because... he'd never help me do my homework; he would only wanna just jam with the rest of the musicians in the building that I lived in."

Michael Bolton was the second celebrity to be kicked off "Dancing With The Stars" this season (David Hasselhoff was booted last week). The singer's low scores practically guaranteed he wouldn't be returning to do another two step.

Gia’s gone, Wes and Dave are fighting, and Natalie is still holding onto her rose when a box of clipboards comes to the house. On said clipboards are surveys that want to know what everyone honestly thinks about the rest of their housemates.

Given that last week’s “Bachelor Pad” featured the nastiest Spin the Bottle (sans bottle) game ever, this latest episode of protracted adolescent humiliation is par for the course. Let...
