Matador Fernando Cruz gored by bull, thrown like rag doll (Video)

Most people walk into a bullfight rooting for the matador to win. Not me. I’m all for the bulls. See, I’m all about the underdog. And if you’re going to blind the bulls and weaken them before they’re placed into a ring to be killed for our enjoyment, then I’m going to cheer when the stupid ritual backfires.

That’s what happened with Fernando Cruz on Wednesday in what’s being called the worst goring of the year in Madrid’s La Ventas ring.

Cruz is in stable condition and currently in intensive care at Virgen del Mar Hospital in Spain after being gored in the stomach. He’s expected to be in the hospital for at least 10 days.

This isn’t as bad as what happened with Juan Jose Padilla whose eye popped out after he was gored, but it looked pretty brutal. I’m guessing he’ll be back to waving his cape and slaying bulls in no time.

Kanye West raps about love triangle with Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

Kanye West dropped a new track “Theraflu” with DJ Khaled on Wedesday. And while the song bangs, there’s more to it than that. What’s notable is Kanye makes the operatic admission of being in love with Kim Kardashian while she was married to Kris Humphries. Drama, you guys. Drama. Kanye spit these bars in the second verse:

“And I’ll admit I fell in love with Kim, around the same time she had fell in love with him. Well that’s cool, baby girl do your thing. Lucky I ain’t have Jay drop him from the team.”

Not only does this revelation of a love triangle seem to lend credence to the allegations that bald lady Amber Rose made, saying Kanye cheated on her with Kim, but it also might have made whatever ludicrous “reality” show on which Kim and Kris’ doomed marriage was portrayed more watchable. Now I guess we should expect “Kim and Kanye Take Over the World” coming to the E! Network’s airwaves this fall.

Hit the jump to hear the song. The above lyrics come in around 1:20. Song obviously NSFW:

Khloe Kardashian says she cooks naked for Lamar Odom

Rumors have been swirling that Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian‘s marriage is going through a rough patch and perhaps, in familiar Kardashian fashion, even nearing “the end.” Khloe has denied any assertions that she and Odom are heading for splitsville.

And now, perhaps strategically, either to convince us the two are going strong or to give us nightmares, Khloe dished some of the details of her sex life with her Mavericks husband to Cosmopolitan, including one notable culinary bombshell.

“I cook for him naked,” she told the women’s magazine when asked if she gives Odom stripteases. Hardly surprising when you consider the two have used (and hilariously broke) a sex swing on their reality show.

I wish I could say this was an April Fools’ Day joke, but it’s not.

Bullfighter Juan Jose Padilla who lost eye returned to ring Sunday (Video)

Remember Juan Jose Padilla? He’s the matador who was gored in the face five months ago and lost an eye. The bull’s horn went through his chin and out his eye, causing him to lose the eye. Padilla now sports an eye patch, speaks with a lisp, and has paralysis in the left part of his face, but all that did not stop him from returning to bullfighting over the weekend.

Padilla performed in the town of Olivenza in front of a packed house Sunday. He killed both bulls he faced and was awarded with two ears to commemorate his feat. He was given a standing ovation and carried out of the ring on the shoulders of the other fighters.

Sure he’s celebrated, and his foolish bravery must be recognized, but one has to wonder if Padilla’s only goal is to die in the ring. The guy already lost part of his face and continues to face bulls with two-dimensional vision. That can’t be a good idea.

Bull Gores Matador Juan Jose Padilla in the Face, Horn Pops Eye Out (Video)

Look, if there are people in Spain who are going to stand in a ring and play chicken with raging bulls in the name of machismo and entertainment, then we won’t shy away from showing you the nasty injuries they suffer. I thought it was bad last year when a matador was gored and the bull’s horn went through his chin and out his mouth. That was extreme. This may be worse.

As Deadspin shares with us, matador Juan Jose Padilla fell down in the ring and was gored by a bull in the face Friday in Spain. The horn entered beneath his ear, and appeared to exit nearby his eye socket. At one point, it appeared as if his eye popped out of his socket.

Padilla is said to have a broken left cheekbone, and doctors reportedly are trying to save his eye.

Here is a video of the incident, and as you could imagine, it’s pretty gross. Warning: below the video, there is a picture of the matador’s eye out of the socket. That one is disturbingly graphic.
