Ain't No Strings on Me

This may be one of the weirdest movie mash-ups of all time.

Perhaps proof positive that some people have too much time on their hands?

Take a classic like The Wizard of Oz, and mix it up with Avengers: Age of Ultron, and what do you get?

Avengers of Oz: Age of Tin Man, of course.

It's pretty creepy and pretty funny all at the same time.

Katy Perry versus The Nuns

No, it's not a lip sync battle of any kind.

It's an honest to servant-of-God fight between Katy Perry and two Los Angeles nuns.

Here's the deal. The Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary convent is for sale.

It sits on top of a hill with a nice view of downtown LA and the San Gabriel mountains.

The nuns have offered to sell it to a restaurateur for $15.5 million. Only problem: the archbishop of LA is trying to sell it to Katy Perry for $14.5 million.

Now, there's a huge argument about who has the right to sell the convent - the nuns who have called it home, or the archdiocese in which it sits.

Katy tried to negotiate directly with the nuns.

One of them, Sister Rita Callanan, was quoted by The Los Angeles Times. "Well, I found Katy Perry and I found her videos and…if it's all right to say, I wasn't happy with any of it,"

The matter is now being handled legally.

But Katy Perry, beware. You may have to answer to a higher court...

Maybe You Should Stick with Footballs, Aaron

Olivia Munn posted a pretty cool video to Instagram on Sunday.

It shows her working on her sword skills - which are pretty impressive - as she preps for a role in an upcoming X-Men movie.

Behind her, Aaron Rodgers - her boyfriend and quarterback of the Green Bay Packers - works on his considerably less impressive stick-waving skills, trying to mimic Olivia's moves.

It's pretty funny - and proof positive that Aaron's better off tossing a pigskin around than being trusted with a sword.

Learned some new tricks...

Why, Kanye, Why?

By now, you've probably heard that - despite 150,000 petition signers who begged for it not to happen - Kanye West headlined the Glastonbury Festival over the weekend.

He got stage-stormed by a local comic - that was pretty cool, him getting a dose of his own medicine.

But once the dust had settled from that, Kanye did something unforgiveable.

He "performed" a cover of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody."

He hit every third note, which is about as many of the lyrics he got right.

I'm sorry, it was atrocious.

But don't take my word for it - check it out yourself.

Don't worry, it's a short video...

Um, Donald, You're Fired!

Donald Trump is getting hit from all sides, but he really doesn't seem to care.

Yesterday, the National Broadcasting Company issued a statement:

"At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump."

The Donald's been at the center of a political firestorm after making tremendously derogatory statements about Mexico and Mexicans in his presidential campaign kick-off speech. And his official statement on the end of his relationship with NBC?
"As of today, Donald J. Trump is no longer affiliated with NBC. Mr. Trump stands by his statements on illegal immigration, which are accurate. NBC is weak, and like everybody else is trying to be politically correct--- that is why our country is in serious trouble."

So, no more wondering who's getting fired next on The Apprentice - since the guy who does the firing has been fired.

WATCH: NBC says it's cutting ties with Donald Trump, but Trump says he's also ending his relationship with NBC. He's not going to apologize for his "accurate" comments, accusing some Mexican immigrants of bringing drugs, crime and rapists to the U.S. http://cbsn.ws/1IoBIXZ

Wait! The Peacock is Gay?

We talked yesterday about all the brands that are going with rainbow-branding in the wake of the Supreme Court's ruling on marriage equality.

Here's something no one expected.

A guy in Little Rock took to Facebook to lambaste KARK-TV - an NBC affiliate - for changing the station's logo "with the colors of gays."

He called it a "disgrace" and vowed to watch the ABC affiliate from that point on.

The NBC peacock has been the network's symbol since they went to "living color" techology - which dates back to the late 50s.

Check out the video sequence underneath the Little Rock Rant.

Wondering What's Going on in Greece?

The tiny island country of Greece - not insignificant, as it is the birthplace of Western Civilization - is in a real financial bind right now.

The banks are closed to prevent a run on their money, and people are limited to withdrawing the equivalent of $67 or so a day from their ATMs.

The banks will stay closed until next week, and the people of Greece will be voting over the weekend to see if they'll stay in the European Union or not.

A mess.

Want to know what's going on?

Here's a 60-second summation, courtesy of CBSN, the official site of CBS News...

With Greece on the brink of default, and possibly leaving the eurozone, what does it mean for the Greeks, Europe and the global economy? CBS News business analyst Jill Schlesinger breaks down the origins and effects of the Greek debt crisis.

Cat Fight Coming?

Like things aren't already unpleasant enough in the Kardashian-Jenner clan.

Official word that Kendall Jenner has eclipsed her half-sister Kim Kardashian on social media.

Kendall's picture of herself, lying on the floor in a white lace dress, had more likes that the picture that Kim shared of her kissing Kanye West at their wedding last year. How'd you like to be a fly on the wall at their house on the 4th of July?

Profound & Moving

On Friday, President Obama delivered the eulogy at the funeral of the Reverend Clementa Pinckney, one of the victims of last week's horrendous shooting at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina

His words were strong, emotional and poignant.

And at the end, he led the crowd in singing "Amazing Grace."

A powerful moment...

Rainbow Branding

The United States Supreme Court's ruling on marriage equality was cause for celebration all across the country.

Sure, there are nay-sayers - that's a huge surprise, right?

But, it didn't take some major brands very long to hop onto the Rainbow Bandwagon. Check out a few of the tweets from over the weekend from some very recognizable brands... You can bet there will be plenty more to follow.
