6 Ugly Things That Happened This Week — Taylor Swift Death Threats, Jake Owen In The Hospital, James Otto Impersonator + More


There’s always some less-than-thrilling things that happen each week, whether it’s across the country, down to Music City in Nashville, or right here in our WNY backyards. This week country music was pumping out the ugly news left and right.

Here’s this week’s rundown.



Taylor Swift Gets Some Death Threats



A guy holding signs at her concert last weekend had “Taylor Is With Satan, Repent”, “Taylor Swift Must Perish And Die” and “I Luv You, Taylor”. Talk about being bi-polar, ya weirdo.




Man Who Sends Man To Hospital At Darien Lake Concert Flees Country



Craig Lawson, who punched someone at the Kid Rock concert at Darien Lake, left the country to head to his hometown in Canada. Craig posted only $1,000 in bail and quickly went back to Canada like it was no big deal, while the victim was Mercy Flighted out of the concert and is still in a coma.

Way to pull a James Corasanti there, Mr. Lawson.




Country Stars In The Hospital



Even celebrities get some down time to play around with their famous friends a bit. Jake Owen was go karting with NASCAR buddies Kevin Harvick and Clint Bowyer when he got in quite a serious accident that required some emergency surgery.

Stick to singing country songs there, Jake.

He’s not the only one. As of Friday morning, Randy Travis is still in critical condition after being rushed to the hospital last weekend. Since then, he has suffered a stroke. Thoughts and prayers heading to Randy and his family!




Justin Bieber Pees In Mop Bucket At Restaurant



While at a restaurant last week, the Biebs acted like his crap doesn’t stink. Just watch this video of the singer peeing into a restaurant mop bucket…and laughing like he’s the king of the world.

P.S. Feel free to show him what you really think when he rolls through town on Monday.

James Otto Has An Imposter



James Otto had quite the situation on his hands when he found out that one man has been pretending to be him.

“Did you by chance message me via text and call me? If not, there is someone claiming to be you, stalking your fans on your page, adding them as friends, and if they — like me — have their number on their page, he texts them, thanks them for their post and leads them on for well over an hour!”




New York State’s Ranking In Beer Drinking In The U.S.



Buffalo, if we were our own state, we would be #1.

“A new study released by The Beer Institute puts New York at the bottom of the list when it comes to the number of people who drink beer. The Empire State places 48th out of all 50 states and Washington, D.C. for beer consumption per capita in 2012.”

Well, that’s bull.
