Morning Links: Lars Von Trier Understands Hitler, Ke$ha and T-Pain Step Out

● Things got awkward yesterday when Lars Von Trier tried to explain the ways he understands Hitler during a press conference at Cannes for his film Melancholia. Star Kristen Dunst whispered to him mid-ramble that she thought it “was horrible,” and Cannes has declared him a “persona nongrata” at the festival. Less jokes next time, okay? [Jezebel/AP] ● “Run The World (Girls)” hasn’t really taken yet. Bey’s nuts dancing in this video could change that. [YouTube] ● The crazed crusaders behind Whale Wars are shifting gears and heading to Libya, in hopes of defending the endangered blue fin tuna. Which is great, because that’s exactly what that part of the world needs right now — men on boats yelling about sushi. [MSNBC]

● There was an explosion of glitter, hard-alcohol, and auto-tune on the internet yesterday, when Ke$ha and T-Pain began tweeting lovingly at each other. But could it be? “I’m not saying @keshasuxx and i had sex or anything I’m just sayin I love that ‘f*** everybody else’ attitude. She dresses how she wants she performs the way she wants, she does HER,” tweeted T-Pain. [MTV Buzzworthy] ● Lady Gaga bumps Oprah from the top spot on Forbes’ seemingly arbitrary Celebrity 100 list this year. [Forbes] ● Former Housewife Danielle Staub seems to have done a lot of things for a minute — crack-whoring, reality television, gay advocacy, and, recently, stripping. Word about her new job spread fast and furiously, and now she’s saying what she’s actually going to do is seek therapy for her “addictions with love and low-self esteem”. Sounds like a solid plan.
