I really do want Whitney Houston to #win. I want her to make a comeback and leave behind all the drama she’s come to be associated with. I loved Whitney as a kid.

Sadly, doesn’t look like that’s going to happen any time soon. Whit was apparently involved in an “incident” while on a flight from Atlanta to Detroit Delta yesterday. And the cause for Whitney’s bizarre behavior? Exhaustion, of course.

Now Whit isn’t the first star who’s claimed exhaustion. Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga, Jay Leno, Lindsay Lohan–they’re all celebrities who’ve suffered exhaustion, too. And apparently, it’s truly a debilitating condition… that oddly enough only celebrities get.

Take me, for example. I work full-time, live in New York City and I’m a single mom to a 3-year-old little girl. But is my sometimes crazy behavior ever written off as exhaustion? It’s never happened, not once. You know what did happen, though? My boss told me not to be late or make up crazy lies again or I’d be fired. Damn, I wish I was a celebrity.

According to a new study, Americans really like songs about sex. Well, duh!

“Approximately 92% of the 174 songs that made it into the [Billboard] Top 10 in 2009 contained reproductive messages,” reports Dawn R. Hobbs, the lead author of the study.

Reviewing my current playlist–and my favorite songs, in general–I must concur that this study is indeed accurate. Here are lines from 6 of the most amazing songs that make me most Americans want to get it on:

1. Motivation by Kelly Rowland featuring Lil Wayne.

Oh lover, don’t you dare slow down/Go longer, you can last more rounds/Push harder, you’re almost there now/so go lover, make mama proud.

2. Sex on Fire by Kings of Leon

Hot as a fever, rattling bones/I could just taste it, taste it/If it’s not forever, if it’s just tonight/Oh it’s still the greatest, the greatest/You, your sex is on fire.

3. Super Bass by Nicki Minaj

He just gotta give me that look, when he give me that look then the panties comin’ off, off, unh.

4. The Greatest Sex by R. Kelly

And inside of your walls there will dwell a Capricorn/That will feast your body all night/If we keep this up then a love child will be born

5. Take You Down by Chris Brown

Let me take you down/I really wanna take you down/And show you what I’m about/Can I take you now?/Your body, body, oh/Your body, body, up and down.

6. Too Close by Next

Baby when we’re grinding/I get so excited … Step back you’re dancing kinda close/I feel a little poke coming through/On you

Call me apathetic or insensitive, but I really have no idea what the people down on Wall Street are protesting. Rich people? Being poor?

I decided to do a little research (aka googling) and here’s what I’ve gathered:

1. They’re getting an early jump on Halloween.

2. They’re having public meltdowns.

3. They’re giving out free haircuts.

4. They’re also offering free childcare.

5. They’re reliving Woodstock.

6. They’re… sleeping with dogs??

Are you protesting? Send us your Occupy Wall Street photos at thefoundist@gmail.com.

$300. Million. On pet costumes!? Gives the phrase “crazy pet people” a whole new meaning, right?

But before you laugh it off, think about this. If, instead of spending so much on Sparky’s McDonalds costume, you used that money to adopt endangered species from the World Wildlife Fund, there would probably be no more endangered species. $300,000,000 would protect:

– 18 million snow, leopard and cheetah cubs
– 12 million three-toed sloths
– 3 million bottlenose dolphins
– 120,000 pandas

Spotted in Miami, N.Y.C. and soon enough, in an inner city near you! Behold, the no sagging pants sign.

Don’t you kind of wish they sold these things in bulk? I certainly wish I could go around nailing one up every time I saw a little delinquent’s nasty drawers. I know you’re rocking the latest Louis briefs, but I’m sorry, I just don’t want to see them.

The same, however, goes for thongs. Pull your pants up people!

Last week’s East Coast earthquake may not have been strong enough to knock down buildings or even rattle subway riders, but it did manage to shake one thing free: the hoodest NYers we’ve heard in a long time.

While everyone else flooded Twitter and Facebook in response to the earthquake, I tuned into NY1. When they were reporting on the latest landmarks being evacuated and whether or not New York could really handle an actual earthquake, they were taking calls from the front lines. Yes, real New Yorks who felt the “erf” shaking underneath them. Here are just a few gems from yesterday’s broadcast:

“I felt the earf shakin.”

“I thought I was dying and sh*t.”

Ahh, New York. Got to love it.
