Gene Simmons has some advice for immigrants, and it's not exactly politically correct. But as an immigrant himself, he feels direct is the way to go here.

During an interview with the Huffington Post, the rocker who moved to the country with his family at the age of 8 says people doing this need to assimilate.

"The politically correct climate is bulls--t," the 64-year-old Simmons said. "You don't want to upset anybody by saying, 'Learn to speak goddamn English.'"

"But, as an immigrant, I'm telling you: Learn to speak goddamn English."

"It is the key that will unlock the keys to the kingdom," the KISS rocker went on. "If you make the effort, all the possibilities of this culture will open up for you."

That effort, he says, "will give you all the rewards that I've gotten."

"I wasn't born here and America enabled me to become a team owner ... to have reality shows, to be in a rock band and to have licensing and merchandise and a restaurant chain."

Simmons says it's "too bad" if people are offended by his quote, but "learn to speak a language correctly! It's not easy. By the way, you don't have to."

Code Adorable! I repeat, we have a Code Adorable! Hide the Wii and the juice boxes!

The Secret Service dealt with the world's cutest threat last night when a toddler squeezed through the White House security gates and on to the North Lawn, triggering an automatic lockdown.

As a result of this breach, President Obama’s residence went into high alert and Pennsylvania Avenue was closed (per protocol) until the pint-size interloper was apprehended.

Edwin Donovan, a spokesman for the U.S. Secret Service, told the media that the unidentified child would not face any serious charges.

For those parents out there struggling to find the best ways of talking to kids about the Second Amendment, boy do we have the perfect children's book for you.

My Parents Open Carry was written by Brian Jeffs and Nathan Nephew, the co-founders of Michigan Open Carry who feel this issue can't be discussed early enough:

My Parents Open Carry Book

Brian and Nathan decided to pen a book on packing heat in public because, well, they "looked for pro-gun children's books and couldn't find any."

Given the countless number of children killed or injured by firearms each year, one can understand why. The authors feel this is an unfair statement, however.

The synopsis for My Parents Open Carry is as follows:

"Come join 13-year-old Brenna Strong along with her mom, Bea, and her dad, Richard, as they spend a typical Saturday running errands and having fun together."

What's not so typical about this family, the book educationally points out, "is that Brenna's parents lawfully open carry handguns for self-defense."

Former White House press secretary and outspoken gun control advocate James Brady has died at the age of 73, his family said in a statement Monday.

The family cited "a series of health issues" for the long-time political spokesman and figure who was paralyzed during a shooting 33 years ago.

"Over the years, Jim inspired so many people as he turned adversity into accomplishment," the family said in the statement, referencing the attack.

That attack was the 1981 assassination attempt on his boss, President Ronald Reagan. Brady went on to lead a gun control campaign that bears his name.

The federal law that requires background checks be conducted on handgun buyers, The Brady Bill, passed in the ensuing years, to James' great pride.

"Few Americans in history as directly responsible for saving as many lives as Jim," said Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

Yesterday, Liam Payne (sort of) went full frontal on Instagram.

Today, fellow One Direction member Zayn Malik made even more waves online; not by taking his clothes off, but by showing support for Palestine in its endless bloody conflict with Israel.

Like others such as Rihanna have done before him, Malik Tweeted #FreePalestine yesterday evening, taking a controversial stance in a war that continues to claim more and more lives each day.

Unlike Rihanna, however, Malik did not delete the Tweet as soon as backlash arose.

And that backlash surely has arisen.

Sarah Palin is giving the people what they want (or want they want to be up in arms about) by starting her own subscription-based online network.

The Sarah Palin Channel, which went live on Sunday, bills itself as a "direct connection" between the former Alaska governor and her supporters.

Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate, vows on her homepage that the new political channel has "no need to please the powers that be."

"Are you tired of the media filters?" Palin asks. "Well, I am."

"I always have been. We're gonna do something about it," she adds, promising, "we'll talk about the issues that the mainstream media won't talk about.

Palin says she will oversee all content on the channel, which is either a good or a bad thing depending on how you view Sarah (to state the obvious).

By now, it's all but guaranteed that Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2016. She's a virtual lock to receive the Democratic nomination and she's the current front-runner to succeed Barack Obama in the highest office in the land.

If the details revealed in a new tell-all book turn out to be true, however, Hillary's most important political ally could turn out be her biggest liability.

The book is titled The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of Presidents, and according to those who have received advance copies, author Ronald Kessler hits the Clintons the hardest.

Kessler reportedly makes some shocking claims about Bill's still very active sex life - specifically with regard to the 42nd president's frequent liaisons with a busty blonde mistress nicknamed "Energizer."

Selena Gomez has made her opinion known on the raging conflict in the Middle East.

Writing on Instagram that "It's About Humanity," Selena posted the controversial message last night for folks to "Pray for Gaza" in regard to the ongoing battle being waged between Israel and Palestine in that region.

Gomez is the latest star to weigh in on this difficult topic, with Rihanna (accidentally, she claims) Tweeting "Free Palestine" earlier in the week, only for the message to be quickly deleted.

But Selena isn't backing off.

Earlier this week, Rihanna caused quite the online kerfuffle when she Tweeted #FreePalestine.

The singer quickly deleted the message, with sources somehow saying she didn't mean to send it in the first place.

We're not sure how that's possible, but we're are sure Rihanna isn't the first celebrity to get into trouble for posting on Twitter.

Heck, she wasn't the first celebrity to Tweet about freeing Palestine this month alone, with Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard writing the same words online before also taking them down.

What other stars have regretting getting into politics over the Internet? We rundown several cases below and come to the same conclusion each time: stick to acting... or singing... or whatever it is you do, Kim Kardashian.

Leave the politics to the politicians.

Rihanna claims she never meant to Tweet #FreePalestine. The message was taken down immediately after going up.

Former political figure Sarah Palin is calling for President Barack Obama to be impeached in an op-ed quickly seized upon by every wannabe comedian on Twitter.

Palin's scathing indictment on Breitbart, in which she likens Obama to an abusive husband and America to his battered wife, set the Internet ablaze.

Reactions on both sides then threw gasoline on it.

  • You Betcha
  • President Obama in Rome

In her view, it's Obama’s diabolical plan to have Mexicans take jobs from Americans, so as to strengthen his hold on power, and he should be ousted as a result.

While Sarah has plenty of fans who would love to see Obama out of office, an overwhelming majority of Tweets about her comments have been ... well ...

Given her choice of words, questionable grasp of facts and the fact that it's Sarah Palin, her condemnation of the "imperial" Obama sparked widespread ridicule:

Some choice reactions after the jump:
