Brenda’s Buzz Thursday July 13th: Kid Rock Running For Office? / Shia LaBeouf Admits He’s Sunk to a “New Low” / Serena Williams Tried to Deposit Her First Million at Bank Drive-Thru?


A year ago, I would have said this was a joke.  But now, who knows.  KID ROCK posted a photo on Twitter yesterday of a campaign yard sign that says, ‘Kid Rock for U.S. SENATE.’  And this might be REAL, people.

He’s talked about it before.  And back in February, his name supposedly got tossed around at a Republican Party convention in his home state of Michigan.

Along with the photo, he wrote, “I have a ton of emails and texts asking if this website is real.”  Then he linked to the site, and said, “The answer is an absolute YES.”

The website looks like it could be legit, but so far there’s just some merchandise you can buy . . . a ‘Kid Rock for U.S. Senate’ shirt, hat, yard sign, and bumper sticker.

And that matters, because once he makes at least $5,000 off that stuff, he technically has 15 days to register his campaign with the Federal Election Commission.  According to the “Washington Post”, he hasn’t done that yet.

If he is on the ballot next year, he’d be running against Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow.  Her response to the news was, quote, “I concede he is better at playing the guitar.  And I’ll keep doing what I do best, which is fighting for Michigan.”

But this could just be an elaborate promotion for an upcoming album, which may be patriotically themed.  Right now, his political merch site is being hosted by Warner Bros. Music, so that’s a bit of a tip-off that this may all be music-related. 


Shia LaBeouf Admits He’s Sunk to a “New Low”


TMZ released more videos of SHIA LABEOUF throwing tantrums after his arrest in Savannah, Georgia over the weekend . . . and there’s even more enraged, drunken RACE-BAITING.

It’s unclear what got Shia so fired up about race . . . but he thinks he was only arrested because he was white, and not at all because he was WASTED. He’s upset at the black cop for hauling him in for bumming cigarettes, and he’s mad at the white cop for going along with it. Obviously, both were just doing their jobs.

The latest videos have Shia telling the black cop he’s going to hell, and telling the white cop that he must be feeling ashamed because his wife prefers black men.

Regardless, Shia released a statement last night admitting that he’d sunk to a, quote, “new low.” He said, quote, “I’m deeply ashamed of my behavior and make no excuse for it.

“My actions warrant a very sincere apology to the arresting officers, and I am grateful for their restraint.

“My outright disrespect for authority is problematic to say the least, and completely destructive to say the worst . . . I’ve been struggling with addiction publicly for far too long, and I am actively taking steps toward securing my sobriety and hope I can be forgiven for my mistakes.”



Serena Williams Tried to Deposit Her First Million Dollar Check . . . at Her Bank’s Drive-Thru?

SERENA WILLIAMS sat down for a new interview where she talks about how making a ton of money has never really mattered to her. She only cares about winning. And this actually makes me believe it . . .

The first time she ever got a check for more than $1 MILLION . . . she tried to deposit it at her bank’s DRIVE-THRU. (???)

It’s not clear if she tried to jam the check in an ATM. But this would’ve been years ago, so it was probably one of those vacuum tube things. She says the check was so big, they wouldn’t let her do it. She had to park and go inside.
