Kodak Black could be out of jail by October

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 14:48:19 GMT


Kodak Black was arrested in January after an Instagram live broadcast showed his young son in his home near a gun and marijuana.

He was facing several felony charges including child neglect.

His lawyers argued that the court had no way of knowing the drugs and guns in the video were real.

The felony charges were dropped and he agreed to plead guilty to the probation violation of driving with a suspended license and associating with people engaged in criminal activity. He was sentenced to 364 days in jail and with time served, he'll be out in September. After he's released, he'll be off probation.

He still awaits trial in a separate case for allegedly raping a teenage girl in South Carolina. If convicted, he could face up to 30 years in prison.

Matt LeBlanc Accidentally Ate Rachel's Meat Trifle on Friends After David Had Spit It Out

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 14:46:13 GMT




David was supposed to eat a bit of that awful trifle while filming but he spat it out, and Matt wasn't looking at that moment, so he took David's part of the trifle and put it on his plate and started eating it all, and then at the end of the season, they were all watching the blooper reel and Matt saw for the first time that he ate something David previously had in his mouth and was taken aback.




-Matt also talks about how he took his daughter to see Taylor Swift but Chris Rock was doing the same thing, and they both felt like the best fathers in the world, but then Taylor asked them to come on stage with her and they kinda didn't want to do it so they wouldn't embarrass themselves, but their daughters made them so they just kind of awkwardly walked down the runway that Taylor had trying to dance a bit.

If you call Gad Elmaleh a racist you just didn't understand the joke

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 12:03:41 GMT

(image)

In 2016 French "comedians" Gad Elmaleh and Kev Adams did a live show in Paris that included a sketch called "Les Chinois (The Chinese)". The live show was recorded and diffused on French TV, and the sketch, that was jam packed with clichès such as bad accents, eye squinting and ACTUAL YELLOW LIGHTING on their faces, caused immediate reactions from Asian communities and the press

TWO YEARS LATER, Gad keeps on rolling like nothing happened, translating Seinfeld jokes, making up some "jokes" about him being a French/Maroccan cliché and trying to seduce the American public, he has signed millionaire contracts with Netflix and has been unfazed by the 2016 drama.



THIS WEEK the live show aired AGAIN on French TV and everyone is like "WTF, did you guys not get it the first time????" Gad has been advertising it on his Twitter account (#LesChinoisForEver..) and even mocking a female Eurasian that criticized him the first time.




"Funny" pic of DJ Louise Chen who wrote an article bashing the sketch the first time:

Guy had a shower and a nap in Taylor Swift's townhouse.

On Friday 20th April a man by the name of Roger Alvarado, 22, climbed up the fire escape of Taylor Swift's SoHo townhouse and broke in through one of her windows. He took a shower and had a nap in her bed before being woken up by police. He had previously tried to break into the townhouse with a shovel on February 13th.

Taylor's had quite a few known run-ins with stalkers in the past month but luckily hasn't been home during any of the incidents:

  1. 8th April - a man tried to climb the walls of her Beverley Hills mansion and her security had to call the cops when he refused to leave.

  2. 13th April - a man stole $1,600 from a bank in Ansonia, drove from Connecticut to her house in Rhode Island and threw the money over her wall in an attempt to impress her (bc she obviously needs money).

  3. 14th April - a man tried breaking into her Los Angeles home with a knife and some rope whilst wearing a mask and gloves. He was also said to own guns.

ONTD Original: It's Taurus Season! Which Celebs Share Your Sign?Blondie - "One Way Or Another"

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 01:39:11 GMT

According to tarot.com, Taurus people are both sensible and sense-driven. Their stubborn determination motivates hard work and leads to a lot of successes, but their inability to admit when they are wrong can cause rifts in personal and professional relationships. Indulgent by nature, the Taurus knows how to slow down and appreciate the finer things in life — but may need to be reminded that satisfaction can be found outside material possessions and luxury experiences.In honor of Taurus season, here are a few celebrities who have lived up to the sign.Adele was born May 5, 1988.In her 2017 Grammy Awards acceptance speech, Adele embodied one of the strongest Taurus traits: an unwavering commitment to her point of view. The decorated singer spoke about her struggles as a mother and artist before turning her attention to her fellow nominee, Beyoncé. Adele said that while she was humbled by the recognition, she could not accept the award over Lemonade, which she called mesmerizing, soul-baring, and empowering--especially to black girls. In true Taurus fashion, she later turned her words into action and snapped the trophy in half to share with Bey. (x)Asked about the speech after the fact, she reiterated her loyalty to her last living musical idol:Mark Zuckerberg was born May 14, 1984.Unlike the self-aware Adele, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg uses his Taurus determination to feed his Taurus greed. ONTD fav The Social Network showed how Mark built his megacorporation on the backs of his former friends, all while stubbornly refusing to admit that he crossed an ethical line by shoring up power and profits for himself.Is there anything admirable about Mark? Well, patience is a (Taurus) virtue, and he managed to endure a 10-hour testimony before Congress made up of the kinds of questions your grandparents ask you about the online. He did do it while seated on a 4" thick cushion, but what do you expect? This sign craves physical comfort.Cher was born May 20, 1946.Though she just squeaked by on the last day of Taurus season, Cher still shows strong traits of the sign. She lives an inarguably luxurious life, taking full advantage of her career as an entertainer to adorn herself with vibrant colors, over-the-top silhouettes, and lots and lots of bling. She is unapologetic about who she is — sometimes to a fault. For example, Cher responded aggressively to a Native American woman's skepticism about Cher's alleged Cherokee ancestry (x):My mother has DARK Hair, she made it blonde cause Young Working actresses & models were blondes.She had lead in Asphalt Jungle,Till bombshell Named Monroe read for it. Heres my Beautiful mother, Bitch‼️She was nursed on a old cotton pick Sack,&You’re not fit to shine her shoes pic.twitter.com/wvPMv5P3fP— Cher (@cher) December 23, 2017When others called her out on her attitude, she did not apologize; instead, she insisted that she would not have been dumb enough to say that had she known the woman was Native herself. (x)BELIEVE WHAT U WANT,I DIDNT LOOK AT AVATAR OR NAME,JUST SAW SHIT ABOUT MY MOM. IM SICK OF BEING ATTACKED AS ELITIST, UNCARING,UN AMERICAN,BY TRUMP CLAN 24/7…. I WAS PISSED & NOT PAYING ATTENTION…DO YOU HONESTLY THINK ID BE STUPID ENOUGH TO SAY THOSE THINGS,EVEN IF I FELT THEM— Cher (@cher) December 23, 2017She continued (x), bringing up earlier criticisms of her old song's racism:Already said I’d stop doing https://t.co/nlj3knV1Pi Made Your(Scorched Earth )https://t.co/kRZYvJZZ0N Won.flex your Mean muscles Elsewhere & GET THE FUCK OFF MY SITE‼️I Find it Really Strange YOU ALL ARE ATTACKING ME 43 YRS LATER🙄TRU[...]

Sales figures are in for the first week of Tinashe's highly anticipated album "Joyride".

The album sold a whopping 4,710 copies in the US, coming in at #24 on HitsDailyDouble's sales chart. The album was no where to be seen on their SPS chart meaning it posted a figure of less than 10k and probably won't even debut in the top 50 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

Scandal Series Finale - Who lived, who died and who did Liv end up with?!

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 01:36:56 GMT




Last night was the series finale of Scandal and the author of this article wrote a very....nice recap but I'm not going to be so nice. The final episode tied up some loose ends and was extremely fast paced. We get a surprise appearance from the vile Hollis Doyle, some commentary from Sally Langston, a half ass ending for 2 characters that honestly seemed like an after thought when writing the script, a cringe worthy monologue from David Rosen about being 'Americas bitch', angsty-love arguing for Liv & Fitz, Cyrus fully embracing the dark side and murdering David Rosen bc Jake basically called him a wimp for never getting his own hands dirty and what would Scandal be without an over the top but extremely accurate monologue from the one and only Eli Pope.

All in all, the season probably could have used two more episodes because the episode was so rushed trying to close out everyone's stories.

So did you find the series finale to be unsatisfying especially after a lackluster final season?

Unlucky 7: Intended Lead Singles That Were Scrapped (ONTD Original)

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 22:41:45 GMT

Even if you had the #focus groups tested and executives approving your next singles, things can go awry when they don't meet certain expectations whether it's artistic or chart-wise. Not to be confused with charity singles or stand-alone singles... actually it does get confusing because artists want to save face and deem these rejected lead singles as something else, commonly referred to as 'buzz' or 'promo' tracks.Let's just consider any changes of plans as a sign from #god, including with the following pop songs. There will also be a few honorable mentions of songs released around the same time but also did not make any cut.7. Focus by Ariana GrandeIntended for: Moonlight/Dangerous Woman (2016)Replaced by: "Dangerous Woman"Release: She teased the song on social media and on her Honeymoon tour, and slowly unveiled the single cover art following the release, showing a new look with platinum blonde hair. AG3 was initially called Moonlight with the title track later appearing on Dangerous Woman. Cancellation: Although appearing in the top 10 of the Hot 100, the song received mixed reviews, and it probably did not measure up to the intended success for a lead single her label was looking for. Appeared on any album format? Yes, it got Japanese bonus track'd on DW.6. Louboutins by Jennifer LopezIntended for: Love? (2011)Replaced by: "On the Floor"Release: Like Ari, J.Lo decided for a change in look with alterego "Lola" (a la Sasha Fierce) with the "Who Is Lola?" teaser, featuring red lips and choppy bangs. The Lola alterego was abandoned after releasing "Fresh Out the Oven". She promoted next intended lead single "Louboutins" a few times on television, including the AMA's where she fell mid-performance but swiftly got back up.Cancellation: Mixed reception from critics, did not even chart in the Hot 100, no airplay, and was completely scrapped before any music video was to be madeAppeared on any album format? NoHonorable mentions: "Fresh Out the Oven", Brandy's original recording of the demo 5. Go Girl (ft. T-Pain) by CiaraIntended for: Fantasy Ride (2009)Replaced by: "Never Ever"Release: A demo version of the song leaked on the internet a month before its official release. It peaked at #78 in the US but #1 in Japan. Cancellation: Overall just underperformed, and when the FR tracklisting came out, the song was not listed. It was later on deemed as a 'promo single'.Appeared on any album format? Yes, it got Japanese bonus track'd for Fantasy Ride.4. Player ft. Chr*s Brown by TinasheIntended for: Joyride (2018)Replaced by: "No Drama"Release: From her own words, it was the #label that hooked up the Chr*s Brown feature. It was announced as the official lead single for Joyride (I can't believe it's been three years, bless), and reached #3 on the US Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles. Cancellation: While Tinashe was just speaking ha truth, Chr*s Brown had to get stupid about the whole thing, so the song was just dropped.Appeared on any album format? NoHonorable mentions: "Party Favors", "Superlove" (which was the next intended lead and still did not appear on any album format) 3. SuperLove by Charli XCXIntended for: Sucker (2014)Replaced by: "Boom Clap"Release: The song was released and uploaded onto Soundcloud 5 months after True Romance LP, which was quite soon to already move onto another project. "Boom Clap" proved to be the next hit to be the actual lead single to focus on. Highkey the only song on this list deserving justice. #JusticeforSuperloveCancellation: As Wiki s[...]

“E’Dena Hines disclosed to Lamar Davenport and others that her grandfather engaged in a sexually inappropriate relationship with her"

Freeman and Hines were not related by blood, but Freeman has known Hines since she was a small child and has been a part of her life for years.

Moderator booed after asking Michelle Pfeiffer how much she weighed during Scarface

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 20:42:40 GMT


  • At a panel at the Tribeca Film Festival celebrating 35 years of the movie Scarface moderator Jesse Kornbluth opened with the always promising line "As the father of a daughter" before just jumping forward and asking Michelle Pfeiffer how much she weighed while filming the movie

  • He was promptly booed by the audience while someone loudly asked him why he needed to know that

  • Pfeiffer appeared taken aback, but after saying that she didn't know, pointed out that she was playing a cocaine addict in the film

  • Kornbluth said that was his point in asking the question

  • When reached for a statement Kornbluth said:

It is true that a gentleman should never ask a woman about her weight. But that was not my question. (OP NOTE: HIS EXACT QUESTION WAS: As the father of a daughter I'm concerned with body image. In preparation for this film what did you weigh? 75 pounds?)It is a comment on the knee-jerk political correctness of our time that no one would be shocked if you asked Robert De Niro about the weight gain required for his role in ‘Raging Bull’ but you get booed — not by many, but by a vocal few — for asking Michelle Pfeiffer about the physical two-dimensionality required for her to play a cocaine freak in “Scarface.”
