Smash Mouth singer loses it on stage, cusses out fans for throwing bread at the stage (VIDEO)

WARNING: VIDEO CONTAINS GRAPHIC LANGUAGE They should change their name to Potty Mouth. The lead singer of '90s has-beens Smash Mouth went on a foul-mouthed tirade and threatened to "beat the f-" out of fans after pranksters threw bread at him during a show in Colorado. Singer Steve Harwell and his bandmates were finishing up their set at the Taste of Fort Collins Sunday when goofballs the crowd began lobbing slices of the bakery staple onto the stage, The Coloradoan reported. "You throw one more piece of s--- on the f--- stage and I'm gonna come find your ass, I'm gonna beat you're ass, wherever the f- you are out there," Harwell bellowed into the mic while pointing at the crowd. "You wanna be a bad ass? Come up here, come on," the irate singer said. "Walk your bad ass up here. Come on! Come on stage!" "I will tell you right now, I will beat the f--- out of you," he added. Moments later, Harwell, 48, jumped off the stage and tried to wade into the crowd to confront a suspected bread-hurler, but was stopped by a security guard. "You little p----y b----s, you're a bunch of p----y b-----s," he fumed into the mic. Harwell's bandmates played it cool during the tirade, playing the opening bars of their 1999 hit "All Star" over and over again. Eventually, after the frontman's antics drew boos from the crowd, the band launched into the song on their own. The crowd joined in, singing most of the lyrics while the surly "Walkin' on the Sun" lyricists stood at the mic. According to The Coloradoan, the people throwing the bread likely got it from a vendor at the food festival who was giving it away for free. So far, the band hasn't commented on the flap.

Knicks’ Kristaps Porzingis’ many gifts take him all the way from Latvia to NBA’s brightest stage

Kristaps Porzingis, a seven-foot Latvian, ambled about the Barclays Center’s inner bowels shortly after 11 p.m. Thursday. He wore a carmine red suit with a black leather shawl collar, shaking a white No. 15 Knicks jersey with both hands as boom mics hovered. He ducked beneath a doorway and looked down a ramp by the loading dock. Black curtains kept passersby from peeking in on post-draft celebrations, and his parents, Talis and Ingrida, idled nearby, a ball beneath his father’s left arm, his right arm around his wife’s shoulder. Their older sons, Janis and Martins, surveyed the scene. Porzingis, blonde and bone-thin, bounded toward them. He pivoted as if on a catwalk before leaving, opening his suit jacket to reveal lining featuring Latvia’s carmine-and-white flag. He unloosed pent-up patriotism. “Latvia!” he said. “Representing!” RELATED: CARMELO NOT HAPPY, BUT KNICKS DRAFTING PORZINGIS MAKES SENSE Booed in public, Porzingis rebounded in private. Nineteen years old and now a Knick, he negotiated the back hallways with aplomb as cameramen choked his path. Onlookers unfamiliar with his ability to finish lobs with dunks in transition eyed a confident gait and casual grace. He spoke English fluently, just as he can speak Spanish and Latvian. He wore a small scar above his top lip, a reminder of a collision with a counterpart’s head last season in Spain, the country he called home the last four years. His phone filled with messages, texts streaming across the Baltic and Atlantic seas. He appeared at home, but hurdles remained. MSG broadcaster Tina Cervasio, positioning for an interview, watched as he nearly tripped on a wire. “Oh!” she said. “We don’t need to hurt you the first five minutes you’re with the Knicks!” FOLLOW THE DAILY NEWS ON FACEBOOK.

FFA chairman Frank Lowy, 84, falls off stage during A-League trophy presentation

The crowning moment of the A-League season nearly ended in tragedy Sunday when the 84-year-old chairman of Australia's football federation fell off the stage and landed on his head during the trophy presentation for newly-minted champion Melbourne Victory.

Almost 30,000 fans at AAMI Park Stadium looked on in stunned silence as medical personnel rushed to treat Lowy, who amazingly got up on his own power before returning to the stage to complete the ceremony. And despite his advanced age, Lowy only suffered a bruised shoulder as a result of the fall, the Football Federation of Australia announced on Twitter. "Mr Lowy received treatment from paramedics on the scene and was cleared of any serious injury. He has soreness in the shoulder," the FFA tweeted.

Britney Spears announces plans to extend Las Vegas residency following on-stage fall

Britney Spears said "the show must go on" after taking a spill on-stage in Las Vegas last week. In fact, the pop star appeared on "Ellen" Tuesday to announce she's extending her Sin City residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino "for three more months." "I just think you should give our entire audience tickets," she told the daytime talk show host while wearing a black supportive boot with her black mini-dress. "I tore some ligaments," she explained. Spears hurt herself during one of her sold out Las Vegas "Piece of Me" performances on Wednesday when she fell on stage. "I actually wasn't doing anything that hard. I was just kind of bopping around," the "Crazy" singer recalled. The outcome of the fall wasn't Spears' biggest concern. It was the fact that she hasn't taken a tumble like that during any of her Vegas performances since the beginning of her residency. "I've done like eight years worth of shows. Plenty of shows and I've never actually fell on stage so it was really kind of embarrassing," she confessed. She first showed off the medical boot on Instagram Friday, two days after the on-stage fall. "This boot was made for walkin'," she playfully captioned the pic. Despite the injury, Spears' Vegas residency, a 113-performance deal that began on Dec. 27, 2013 and was originally slated to conclude in September, has been extremely successful and has already garnered the pop star some awards. "So you won these awards, which are really cool," DeGeneres said. "You won best show in Vegas, best bachelorette party in Vegas, so people come to your show and you must see wild things." "A lot of wild things," Spears replied before providing an example. "Tattoos of my face on people's arms, which is really kind of crazy." ON A MOBILE DEVICE? WATCH THE VIDEO HERE. Continue Reading

SEE IT! ‘All of a sudden, everyone was gone’: Indiana high school stage collapses during show, at least 12 injured

At least 12 people were injured, one critically, when the stage at an Indiana high school collapsed Thursday night during the musical "American Pie III," swallowing dozens of cast members as they jumped in unison, Westfield police said. Terrifying video shows the moment the Westfield High School auditorium stage gave way as a Journey solo was transformed when more than 20 clapping and stomping performers swarmed in to the lyrics of "Don't Stop Believin." “When all the performers rushed the stage, I saw the floor was starting to bow a little bit and I stepped to the left and the stage collapsed," senior Blake Rice, guitarist and band leader, told RTV. "I saw 20-30 of my friends fall in.” That's when the platform beneath them dropped out and the young performers fell in, according to video shot by an onlooker and shared on social media. "We have some seriously injured people," Westfield Fire Department Chief Joe Lyons told The Indianapolis Star. "Not one hospital is going to be able to handle this many patients." An auditorium packed with 1,000 people in the small community, about 30 miles north of Indianapolis, watched in horror as the teenagers disappeared into a pit that was a stage moments earlier. "All of a sudden, everyone was gone," one stunned parent told RTV. Parents and teachers rushed the stage to aid the teenaged performers once confusion gave way to alarm. Emergency responders were called at 10:30 p.m. local time. One of the performers who fell in said he couldn’t believe what happened and that some of his cast mates were trapped under wood debris. Up to 70 students took part in the play. “So thankful my son (guitarist in vid) is ok, but just feel sick for the whole #WHSAmericanPie family :(,” tweeted Sara Camden, the mom who shot the dramatic video from the second row. Ambulances took the injured to three Continue Reading
