The creepy new way to get a star’s attention: Prank 911 calls that send a heavily-armed police SWAT team to a celebrity’s home. L.A. is now grappling with “a full-blown ‘swatting’ epidemic,” with victims in the past week including Russell Brand, Ryan Seacrest, Diddy, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Selena Gomez. (New York Times)
