Even if you don’t know the name DMX, you’re probably familiar with his hit song ‘X Gon’ Give It To Ya’. It appeared in iconic scenes in Rick and Morty and Deadpool and was even featured in a Chex cereal commercial.
It’s almost undoubtedly the best song of the past 20 years. Certainly the most recognizable.
DMX himself, real name Earl Simmons, is in grave condition following a drug overdose and a heart attack. TMZ reports that he’s not recovering any brain function and his family is going to need to decide if they should remove him from life support.
I’m no medical expert, but my limited knowledge in these matters is that after being deprived of oxygen for 30 minutes, it’s very unlikely that you’re going to recover.
DMX has been reported as being in a “vegetative state,” which you might recall is the same condition Terri Schiavo was in for 15 years before being removed from life support.
It would be great if he recovered somehow. It really would. He’s only 50, we’ve lost enough great musicians too young. But it’s not likely he’ll recover. Our thoughts are with his family as they go through this incredibly difficult time.

Something about Taylor Swift’s re-recording and re-release of her old records that rubs me the wrong way. I get that she wants to control her masters and I think she and all musicians should, but why should her fans be asked to rebuy all of her albums because she doesn’t like Scooter Braun.
Of course, when her fans aren’t bullying anyone they think may have crossed her, they’re more than happy to oblige her.
In fact, so desperate to please their queen are the Swifties that they’re sharing tips on how to make sure they don’t accidentally listen to one of the bad versions of the songs that they’ve loved for decades and give bad man Scooter Braun $0.00437 that he’s just to spend on granting wishes for sick kids.
Variety reported on the length Swift’s fans are going to in order to avoid her old songs.
The step-by-step process includes “hiding the song” for each number of “Fearless (Platinum Edition),” then each song on “Fearless (International Version),” then “Fearless (Big Machine Radio Release Special),” then the individual track “Today Was a Fairytale” (a soundtrack cut never included on “Fearless,” but a bonus track on the new release), then the collection “Live From Clear Channel Stripped 2008” (a release Big Machine uploaded to streaming services after she left the label, to her public displeasure), then “Love Story *Digital Dog Remix),” then “Love Story (Pop Mix)” and, finally, “You’re Not Sorry (CSI Remix).”
The user @swifferupdates did miss one angle, though: As a respondent pointed out, there was no instruction to hide the original-original version of “Fearless,” which also remains on Spotify, sans the bonus tracks added for all the special editions.
Lots of bands have put out remastered versions of songs and different collections and whatnot. The Beatles’ catalog is a real mess for example with a bunch of different versions of albums released over the years. But they’re usually decades-old recordings that were originally released before CDs done to sound as good as possible on modern equipment, not albums from a few years ago re-recorded out of spite.
If you already have Taylor Swift’s albums, they still work, you don’t need to replace them.

One of the most famous rappers of his generation appears to be on the verge of death.
According to numerous outlets and sources, DMX is facing significant health issues after he suffered a heart attack on Friday night -- allegedly due to a drug overdose -- and was admitted to White Plains Hospital in New York.
Those closest to the artist have confirmed as much.
"We ask that you please keep Earl/DMX and us in your thoughts, wishes, and prayers as well as respect our privacy as we face these challenges," the family of the rapper (born Earl Simmons) wrote on Sunday.
TMZ was among the first websites to publish the story -- and this celebrity gossip insider reports that DMX is clinging to life in an ICU unit... with little brain function.
However, a few family members who have visited the music icon are not giving up hope.
DMX's fiancée, Desiree Lindstrom, and his mother, Arnett Simmons, have been permitted into the ICU to visit the rapper, although he remains unresponsive at this time.
The star's grave prognosis is the result of oxygen deprivation after his Friday night overdose.
We cannot verify just what substances DMX took during the incident that may end up costing his life.
But we do know that The Ruff Ryders to the Rescue Foundation will be holding a prayer vigil outside of White Plains Hospital on Monday.
"We're just praying," manager Nakia Walker told The New York Times over the weekend.
Walker also told Buzzfeed News that DMX is "still in the same condition -- in a vegetative state, [with] lung and brain failure and no brain activity."
Said the artist's lawyer, Murray Richman, to this same newspaper:
"He is truly an amazing person. He walked into a room, he lit up the room. He couldn't help making you feel good in his presence."
Said the musician's loved ones on Saturday to TMZ:
"Last night Earl 'DMX' Simmons was rushed to the hospital after collapsing at home.
"At this time he remains in ICU in critical condition. Earl has been a warrior his entire life. This situation represents yet another road he must conquer."
Concluded this message:
The Simmons Family appreciates the overwhelming outpouring of heartfelt love, encouragement, support and prayers for Earl.
Earl is someone whose life and music have been a source of inspiration and strength to so many people around the world.
It is reassuring to see his fans return that same passion and energy to him during his time of need.
DMX cancelled a series of performances in 2017 to reenter a rehabilitation facility, according to Rolling Stone.
"It is important right now that he take some time off to focus on his health so that he can be a better father, friend and entertainer," then-manager Pat Gallo said in a statement at the time.
The rapper had another stint in rehab in 2019, after he served a prison sentence for tax evasion.
A father of four, we send our best wishes to DMX for a miraculous recovery.
Bella Thorne finally released her new music video to her song called Phantom which has been said (by her friends) to be “like an A24 movie”. The song is about having an overbearing and jealous boyfriend who Bella gets sick of and ghosts.
The boyfriend is played by an alien like creature in the video and has Bella jumping into a Rolls Royce with a bunch of ghosts before ending up at a party where the alien ex-boyfriend shows up. See some highlights from the video in the gallery and watch the full video below!

A lot of people got very worked up about the documentary Framing Britney Spears, but Spears herself doesn’t appear to have been a big fan. The singer is trying to stay positive and dance and smile, but she didn’t like how she was portrayed in the doc.
Spears said “I didn’t watch the documentary but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in … I cried for two weeks and well …. I still cry sometimes !!!!”
Honestly, I don’t think Spears has anything to be embarrassed about. I haven’t seen anyone express anything but empathy for her and her situation, but I can see why she could be embarrassed having her business exposed like that. People feel how they feel and that’s okay.
Spears ended her post with a positive message, saying “I do what I can in my own spirituality with myself to try and keep my own joy … love … and happiness !!!! Every day dancing brings me joy !!! I’m not here to be perfect … perfect is boring … I’m here to pass on kindness.” That’s really sweet, it’s kind of hard not to like her.
It’s a lot easier not to like her father Jamie. Britney very publicly wants Jamie permanently removed as conservator of her estate and person, and Jamie has fought the estate part of that tooth and nail. And he’s requested that his daughter pay for it.
Page Six reports Jamie is asking for upwards of three million dollars from his daughter to pay his fees as conservator, as well his legal fees to fight her efforts to be removed as conservator, including what appears to be PR efforts on behalf of Jamie. The best part is Jamie’s legal fees are three times what Britney’s are.
Honestly, I can see why Jamie is fighting so hard for this, this conservatorship thing seems like a pretty good deal. You get over $200,000 a year to approve things someone wants to buy, and when they say “I would like anyone in the world other than you to be in charge of my finances and career” you say fight them in court and make them pay for your lawyers and PR for how bad you look? Why wouldn’t you do your best to stay on that gravy train?
I mean, aside from the fact that your daughter is miserable and probably isn’t very happy with you. But I doubt those are pressing concerns for Jamie Spears.

Bill Maher made headlines with his rant about the music industry and how some people succeeding and others failing is because it’s a meritocracy and some people make better music than others. Now, this was right around the Grammy Awards ceremony, and it’s worth mentioning that success and talent and winning awards are entirely unrelated.
Case in point: Beyoncé’s daughter has more Grammy awards than BTS, the most popular band in the world. 4 out of the top 5 best-selling songs on Amazon last year were by BTS but sure, Blue Ivy earned that Grammy.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a sharp increase in hatred and violence targeting Asians, much like the violence targeting Muslims we saw after 9-11. Even BTS has felt the effects of this sort of racism, CNN reports.
“We recall moments when we faced discrimination as Asians. We have endured expletives without reason and were mocked for the way we look. We were even asked why Asians spoke in English,” said the band in a statement posted on Twitter Tuesday.“We cannot put into words the pain of becoming the subject of hatred and violence for such a reason.”
The band was characteristically humble, even in this, saying that they know others have been subjected to much worse.
Our own experiences are inconsequential compared to the events that have occurred over the past few weeks. But these experiences were enough to make us feel powerless and chip away our self-esteem.
Racism is pretty stupid just in general. Like, punching some old Asian woman who is just minding her own business is going to accomplish what’s in your mind? That’s going to solve COVID? Getting vaccinated when you can is going to solve COVID. Be nice to each other.

If there’s one thing people try to avoid in life, it’s seeing their great-grandmother naked. If you’re interested in seeing someone old enough to be your great-grandmother naked, you should follow Madonna on Instagram.
Is it just me or does it look like she had her belly button filled in?
How much Botox and photoshop can a human body withstand before it just says “enough?”
Is anyone still asking for this at this point? I guess maybe Snoop Dogg who responded “I need u.”
At least it’s her body this time and not just her face photoshopped on a 20-year-old.
I’m not actually breaking new ground by saying Madonna looks like someone’s trashy Florida grandmother here. 30 Rock was making jokes about Madonna refusing to accept that’s old back in 2010 when the singer was only in her early 70s, saying she was trying to “cling to her youth” with “Gollum arms.”
But much like Madonna’s lady parts, jokes about her trying to be a teenager in her 60s are a bottomless pit that can be drilled for oil by basically anyone without ever hitting the bottom.

If there’s one thing that never gets old to me, it’s watching people freak out about “the devil.” As an atheist, I find religion to be silly and I secretly judge you for believing in it. Watching a bunch of people absolutely lose their mind over a pair of “evil shoes” makes me feel entirely justified in this.
I think Lil Nas X is of the same mind as I am on this because he released 666 pairs of Nike Air Max 97s made to look Satanic by art collective MSCHF, including adding human blood to red ink.
I think they’re kind of silly, but all 665 pairs for sale (Lil Nas X kept one for himself) sold out in under a minute, even at a price of $1,018 a pair.
Nike was not pleased about this because even though they had nothing to do with it, a bunch of people got mad at them, further proving my point that anyone who would get mad about this deserves scorn.
So of course, Nike is suing for trademark infringement and trying to block sales of the shoe.
I don’t think it’s going to be successful. The right of the first sale in the US is a very strong protection that basically lets you do whatever the hell you want to something you own. There’s no software in shoes to pull an end-run around consumer rights like John Deere, either.
But most importantly, Lil Nas X is sick of your bullshit. He’s got a new album and his video for his new song ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ shows him giving the devil a lap dance. A bunch of people were mad that it wasn’t appropriate children, and Nas’s answer was essentially “I am not Raffi, I don’t care.”
there was no system involved. i made the decision to create the music video. i am an adult. i am not gonna spend my entire career trying to cater to your children. that is your job. https://t.co/SzjjYe2tf4
— nope (@LilNasX) March 27, 2021
You can’t blame him, the man wants to be a serious musician. A serious musician who gives the devil a lap dance, but a serious musician. If you don’t think something is appropriate for your kids, there’s no shortage of stuff in the world that is. Don’t insist everything be to your taste.
Watching conservatives try to cancel Lil Nas X because he triggered them is kind of funny, though. You need a safe space from the bad devil shoes, snowflakes?

Madonna is like 80 years old or something and she refuses to acknowledge that. Women her age should not be shooting naked videos in the bathtub. Seriously, I’m surprised she didn’t sit on her boobs in that position.
Still, Madonna looks in the mirror and sees a 20-something looking back. It’s basically the opposite of body dysmorphia.
Okay, that’s clearly not Madonna’s body, right?
It’s such a bad job that you’d think it was a joke but she posted that years ago and there was no wonky “hehe, that’s photoshopped, funny, right?” It’s not a famous picture, it wasn’t a meme, the intent was clearly for people to think that’s Madonna.
The pictures is actually of a woman named Amelia Goldie.
That is really something. This has been on Madonna’s Instagram for like six years, which means at the time, Goldie was 22 and Madonna was well over 100.
The lesson here is don’t photoshop your head onto someone else’s face, and if you absolutely must do so, don’t photoshop your head on the body who hadn’t even been born the first time Al Roker wished you a happy birthday.

Iggy Azalea has announced that she is releasing a new song on April 2nd called Sip It. The song will feature Kylie Jenner’s ex Tyga, who famously dated the reality star when she was just 16.
The singer gave us a behind the scenes look at filming the upcoming music video which takes place inside a gas station and has Iggy dancing on a pole while Tyga sings about giving girls one of his chains if they are good in bed.. all Blac Chyna got out of the deal was a baby!
Iggy sweetened the pot by announcing a collaboration with ppcocaine which stands for Pretty Pink Cocaine (I know) by sharing a few photos of the two of them on set, with Iggy looking like a giant in a green bodysuit next to PP, see all the photos in the gallery!

Taylor Dee, a Dallas-based musician whose real name was Taylor Dawn Carroll, died on March 14 in a Texas hospital after being involved in a car accident, according to multiple media reports.
She was 33 years old.
The fatal tragedy took place around 10 p.m. on the eastbound TEXpress lane near the 100 block of West Airport Freeway, according to a news release from the Euless City Police Department.
Investigators have said that the singer was driving a 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer when she tried to make an abrupt lane change.
The vehicle missed the turn... and crashed into a cushion barrier.
"It looks like she made a last minute decision to attempt to go from the toll lane into the exit lane," said Euless Police Sergeant Scott Peterson on Monday evening.
The aforementioned release detailed how Dee's vehicle then flipped into the air, hit a steel highway sign and landed upside down on the highway.
Investigators believe Taylor was not wearing her seatbelt when the crash occurred.
Per Peterson: Dee appeared to have been ejected from her car.
He added that her unnamed male passenger was wearing his seatbelt and was released from the hospital the next day.
Dee, sadly, was transported to a hospital, which is where she passed away from the injuries she sustained.
An investigation is expected to delve further into what transpired. but no criminal charges are expected to be pressed.
Linda Wilson, president of the Texas Country Music Association, mourned the singer in a statement to KTVT, saying:
"Taylor Dee was the real deal -- a true talent with a heart and passion not only for her music but for people."
"In every performance, her talent was evident, but more importantly she allowed her fans to know her heart," Wilson added.
"She will be missed tremendously."
The artist's agent, Shai Berry, said in a statement of his own:
"Taylor caught people's attention everywhere she went with her large wild personality and charming smile.
"She blew listeners away every time she stepped in front the mic."
"The power of her beautiful vocals were felt deep within the soul."
"Her energy and passion were so contagious that she left every show with a new team of supporters and fans."
"Taylor adored her children, family, friends and fans; loving them with everything she had."
"Taylor Dee will be deeply missed by so many but her powerful voice and message will echo for eternity.
"Life is short, Live your dream, Laugh along the way."
In 2019, she dropped her debut album The Buzz, which included the songs "Sawtooth," "Take Me Down," "I Hope You're Happy Now" and "Pretty Ugly."
Just two days before her passing, Dee performed at a concert at Rancho Loma Vineyards in Fort Worth, Texas, writing on Facebook ahead of the gig:
"Y'all come see us tonight! We playin at this awesome place."
Dee is survived by her son, Vayden, and her daughter, River.
A GoFundMe page, which has raised more than $12,000 so far, reads:
"She was a great mother of two beautiful children that she will be leaving behind. She could make you laugh about the craziest things. Her spirit was so free and she had a voice that the angels could hear.
"She had your back even when you didn't know it."
"Her laugh is something you can hear when she says LOL."
The GoFundMe page added, simply, and powerfully, "she will be forever loved and missed."
We send our condolences to the friends, family members and loved ones of Taylor Dee.
May she rest in peace.

Bella Thorne is working on her newest music video called Phantom, which is a much different song than the last few she’s released. Her last song, Shake It has been climbing the charts and becoming more popular on the TikTok app, with Bella posting videos using the song to show off her dance moves. She actually broke her sofa while filming one of the videos and caught the sound of her couch breaking on camera.
Bella’s new song Phantom is due to drop in 10 days with a new music video being released on the same day, until then, Bella has shared some behind the scenes action on set of the video and it looks kinda creepy. There is even an alien in the video that can be seen smoking a cigarette in one of the photos taken on set. Swipe through the gallery to see more BTS of Phantom!

Beyoncé’s 9-year-old daughter Blue Ivy has officially won more Grammy Awards than BTS, the world’s most popular music group. If that’s not permission to stop caring about awards shows, I don’t know what is.
While it’s pretty gouache to claim that you personally not being nominated for an award is proof that the awards show is corrupt, the Grammys are and always have been out of touch. For example, in 1981, Bruce Springsteen was nominated for the first time and lost to Billy Joel.
Still, to take a massively successful and popular band like BTS and relegate them to a minor award category and then give that award to Lady Gaga… it’s not a great look.
Also, why are Best Album and Best Record two different awards that went to two different performers? Those two words mean the same thing. And which one is better?
But really, why do we have these awards shows in the first place? Does your workplace have an annual awards ceremony? I think the music, television and movie industries would get along just fine without giving each other a bunch of statues basically once a month and just, you know, making music and entertainment.

Megan Thee Stallion obviously has some sort of agreement with her record deal that has her collaborating with bands like Maroon5, who I honestly thought had retired and stopped making the same song over and over again but I was wrong.
Meg flexes her signing voice in the new Maroon 5 song called Beautiful Mistakes and she’s joining the lead singer of the band, Adam Lavine, in the new music video. It looks like who ever directed this video has been playing a lot of GTA stunt races because they have Meg flying through the skies over LA in what seems to be a magical car.

We heard earlier this week that Kanye West wanted Kim Kardashian back, or, more specifically, that he expected her to come running back to him when she “realized what she was missing.” We know that’s not likely to be the case because, well, who would miss Kanye?
Apparently, if Kanye does want Kim back, he’s playing hard to get. In fact, he’s not even speaking to, according to Page Six.
The source said, “Even before Kim filed for divorce, Kanye changed his numbers and said, ‘You can contact me through my security.’ Despite this, she trusts him around the kids. He loves them and is seeing a lot of them. She leaves the house and he arrives and hangs out with the kids. They have an army of nannies so the transition is easy.”
It kind of sounds like Kanye is being a giant baby. I know, it’s shocking, right?
I don’t think that Kim is about to come crawling back to Kanye. I don’t know if he’s not speaking to her as a ploy, they say absence makes the heart grow fonder after all, or if he’s just hurt and not dealing with his pain in a healthy way. Considering he’s still wearing his wedding ring, I’m guessing the first choice is at least partially true.

After Not Being Nominated for a Grammy, The Weeknd Says He Will No Longer Submit Music to the Grammys
“You can’t fire me, I quit!”
That’s basically what The Weeknd sounded like when he said that because he wasn’t no I acted for a Grammy that he would no longer submit his music for consideration for a Grammy.
He told The New York Times “Because of the secret committees, I will no longer allow my label to submit my music to the Grammys.”
Here’s how the Times describes the process:
Why? Scrutiny has zeroed in on a little-understood part of the Grammy process: the role of anonymous expert committees, which review initial nomination choices by the thousands of music professionals who make up the voting membership of the Recording Academy, the nonprofit group behind the awards, and — for 61 of the Grammys’ 84 categories — have the final say about who makes the cut. To the Grammy leadership, the committees are a check-and-balance step to preserve the integrity of the awards. To suspicious artists, they are unaccountable star chambers that can subvert the will of the voters.
Honestly, it seems like sour grapes to me. The “secret committees” wouldn’t be a problem if he had won. And awards shows never reward the most deserving person or piece of media anyway. If they did, The Weeknd would have lost ever category anyway, he’d just lose to BTS instead of whoever eventually wins.

Jamie Spears’ Lawyer Says Britney Can End Her Conservatorship at Any Time, She Just Must Not Want To
Apparently, all Britney Spears has to do to end her conservatorship is ask. She apparently just hasn’t gotten around to it.
At least that’s what her father’s lawyer told People.
“Any time Britney wants to end her conservatorship, she can ask her lawyer to file a petition to terminate it; she has always had this right but in 13 years has never exercised it,” Thoreen claims. “Britney knows that her Daddy loves her, and that he will be there for her whenever and if she needs him, just as he always has been — conservatorship or not.”
See, that’s weird because she very much did ask for Jamie to be removed as her conservator and he and his lawyers fought tooth and nail against it and tried to have the co-conservator Spears asked for by name removed.
Filing a petition to end the conservatorship and ending it are two very different things, and I get the feeling her father’s legal team would probably fight against ending it. If the goal here was respecting Britney’s wishes, her father could have just willingly stepped down.
Britney might actually like the idea of having someone watch out for her best interests and looking after her money, but she clearly doesn’t want her dad to be the one to it.
So here’s my idea: get her sister Jamie to replace her father. Just sneak it in since they have the same name. Reveal it like it’s a plot twist in an Ocean’s 11 film. Just have Jamie Lynn rappel into the courtroom holding a contract and go “not so fast!”
Okay, that probably won’t work, but it seems like the most feasible option here.

The video starts off with Doja bringing TikTok to YouTube by doing the platforms Silhouette Challenge behind a storefront, before becoming some sort of black widow spider woman that escapes a car accident and then ends up in the backseat of a cab, but that’s also after she becomes a 50’s housewife sitting on a couch with a mannequin of course..

Cancel culture is all some people want to talk about, both people who hate it and people who love it, though the people who love it will usually claim it doesn’t exist. If you ask those people about it, they’ll probably tell you that it’s just people getting the deserved consequences for their actions.
That would be a lot more believable if people weren’t trying to cancel Eminem so much.
See, Eminem has put a lot of things in songs that you wouldn’t be surprised would get someone canceled; racism, misogyny, homophobia and transphobia.
The issue is that those are all pretty far in the past. And in more recent times, he”s said he was wrong and he’s done better. So what is the point of canceling someone if not to get them to do that? If there’s no possible redemption then what is encouraging people to evolve?
— Marshall Mathers (@Eminem) March 5, 2021
Eminem wrote a song about it, ‘Tone Deaf’, because he’s a musician, what did you expect him to do? It includes the lyric “I won’t stop even when my hair turns grey (I’m tone-deaf) / ‘Cause they won’t stop until they cancel me.”
If you’re a regular person, getting canceled can ruin your life. If you’re a celebrity, though, all you have to do is not go away. We’re still watching Woody Allen movies and reading Harry Potter books and Chris Brown is still selling albums.
But the question is why are so many people spending so much energy trying to cancel someone who has pretty much disavowed what they’re trying to cancel him for and has done better, so to speak? It’s almost as if mobs of people just want to punish someone for something and spend too much time trying to find someone they can punish regardless of what it’s really called for.
But that’s crazy talk, right?

If you’ve ever wanted your own Cardi B, I have good news for you: there’s a limited-edition Cardi B doll coming to the market. The bad news is that’s it’s only available for 72 hours and looks to be more of a collectible for adults than a toy for children. Especially the already-sold-out $100 VIP edition that’s limited to 1000 pieces.
The background here is that Cardi B and some partners started this company, Real Women Are, in partnership with toymaker NECO, to make a more diverse and representative range of dolls. It’s the sort of Barbie alternative that’s been failing in the marketplace for years, but this celebrity-backed venture will at least make money on this first drop-style offering.
Here’s the problem; Cardi’s fans are pissed about it because… well, I hate to use the word entitlement because it’s so overused to dismiss basically any complaint people have about consumer products, but it kind of applies here.
Basically, Cardi’s fans want a new album, not a new doll, and they were more than happy to let her know.
Part of the problem is that Cardi hyped up her involvement, saying that it was created and designed by her. I’m guessing Cardi approved the designs and made some suggestions about the accessories and how the doll should look, but it’s not like she was sculpting it herself.
Cardi didn’t do herself any favors when she responded to people’s complaints by saying “How am I supposed to be rich? How am I supposed to build my net worth?” But it is true that in the age of streaming, album sales don’t pay out for artists the way they used to, and things like merchandise sales and endorsements is how musicians make a living now.
This lead to Cardi deleting her Twitter again, which she does a lot when people get mad her. And honestly, it’s probably healthier than reading a bunch of people yelling at you over some ultimately trivial nonsense.

Bebe Rexha just dropped her new music video for a song called Sacrifice which starts out with Bebe torturing a man hanging by chains in a room. She then moves on to a hospital where she shows us just where she found this dead man.
The whole video must have some weird demonic undertones as most of these new music videos these days do, but Bebe makes it fun by having blood pour out of the sprinklers in a club, very big Party Monster vibes. Normalize blood drinking, right Armie Hammer?
The timing on this video is also perfect considering Bebe is the talk of the town today for a different reason. Last night while Bebe was Live on Instagram, she invited fans to join in on the livestream, until one fan pulled his dick out for her. Bebe hated it and went on twitter to explain how disgusted she was by what just happened.
The song is guaranteed to become a big hit because it’s actually super catch and fun to dance to, if those things called clubs ever open up again. Until then, we can live vicariously through Bebe Rexha’s weird vampire club with this video!

I always assumed Snoop Dogg would be a pretty chill guy. It’s hard to smoke that much pot and not be relaxed. I have smoked way, way less pot than Snoop but when I’m high I basically only have the energy to eat cheese and sleep. I also do that a lot when I’m not high, so those could be unrelated.
Snoop Dogg is not chill, though. Much like my best friend in high school, Snoop Dogg clearly hates losing. When he was playing Madden on Twitch on a stream called “Sit Back, Relax, and Chill it’s a vibe in here,” he lost his absolute s**t after about 15 minutes when he found himself down by 21 points and he quit the game and stormed out of the room.
A little word of advice, Snoop, blame it on your brother giving you the crappy controller.
By the way, none of this is the weird part of the story. The weird part of the story is that Snoop left his stream recording when he left the room and people stuck around. For like seven hours.
And people watched it. A lot of people. Like almost 400,000 people.
That’s more than some shows on The CW.

I almost can’t believe this story actually happened, it’s basically entirely insane. Someone stole Lady Gaga’s dogs. In the middle of the street. And they shot her dog walker to do it.
TMZ has a security video of the incident, and basically, a car screams up, two people jump out, shoot the dog walker, take two of the three dogs, get in the car and speed off.
We all agree that this was planned, right? People don’t just shoot people to steal dogs on an impulse. They had to know these were Lady Gaga’s cats and took them for a reason.
Gaga offered a reward of half a million dollars for the return of the dogs, which I think is what the dognappers were after in the first place.
Of course, they also shot a guy. Four times. He is miraculously still alive and is said to be recovering well.
And I get that the dog walker here was trying to protect the dogs and I understand how much Gaga must care about them, but if someone tries to steal a dog at gunpoint, hand over the dog.
I don’t think that murdering someone to steal a dog is a great plan, though. If you steal someone’s dog, the police aren’t going to care. If you shoot someone, the police are going to care. These thieves were not exactly Ocean’s Eleven.

You may have heard over the weekend that Bruce Springsteen was arrested and charged with a DWI a while back. Drinking and driving is a serious issue, but it was kind of funny it came out like, two weeks after Jeep started airing an ad featuring The Boss that they had to immediately pull off the air.
When I saw the headlines that the prosecutors dropped the charges against him, except one for drinking in a federal park which was a misdemeanor with a $500 fine, I thought it was the result of celebrities getting special treatment.
Just a little digging, though, I can’t understand why Springsteen was even arrested in the first place.
See, in order to be driving while intoxicated, you generally have to have a BAC that is over the legal limit. In New Jersey, that limit is .08. TMZ reports that the reason that they dropped the DWI charges against Bruce is that his BAC was only.02, a mere quarter of the legal limit and what your BAC would be after you had a single beer.
According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Bruce was glassy-eyed, swaying and reeked of booze when he was arrested. Remember, police said an officer watched Bruce take a shot of Patron Tequila before riding away on his motorcycle. For what it’s worth, cops say Bruce was cooperative throughout the arrest.
To have a BAC of .02, that shot of Patron would have been the only drink he had.
So why did they arrest him? Don’t they have field sobriety tests and pocket breathalyzers? If you want an autograph just ask the man for an autograph.

Bella Thorne has just released her new self-directed music video clued Shake It which she’s been promoting for the last couple weeks with promo clips including her and pornstar Abella Danger kissing in a pool. The official video dropped on YouTube and was quickly pulled down, which Bella says is because they have some hot girls shaking ass which is typical of a male music video but she feels like she was being personally attacked here.
“Hey @youtube – why’d you take down my video for Shake It? Is it because I’m having fun with @dangershewrote? Male artists always have women shaking ass in videos… why can’t we? Censorship against women needs to end!!! I’ll never stop fighting against this bull%h*t. Stay tuned. Also Congrats guys, you broke YouTube!”
Lucky for us, the video has been put back onto YouTube which means we all get to see Bella fake marry Abella before doing some choreographed dancing in matching outfits, which ends with Bella ripping her new wives top off of her. Watch the too hot for the internet video below!
Bella was clearly feeling excited about releasing the new video, so excited that she had to flash her boobs to the world in the new clip below. We like when Bella’s happy!

I point out a lot that most celebrities have clearly had cosmetic surgery because, well, it’s pretty obvious. Celebrities age slower today than they did before Botox was available, and there should be no mystery about why that is no matter how many times they tell you that they haven’t had any work done.
I’m not actually trying to shame them when I point this out. It just annoys me because no one really cares and pretty much expects celebrities to have work done. When a celebrity is in their 50s and don’t have a single wrinkle on their face and want you to believe that it isn’t from Botox they’re basically just calling you an idiot to your face. Having work done isn’t the problem, it’s lying about it that bothers me.
Fox News reports that Cardi B recently talked about how much better having cosmetic surgery made her feel.
“I was also really skinny when I was younger, and in the Bronx, it’s about being thick and having an a–, so young boys would be like, ‘Look at your flat a–. You ain’t got no t—–s,'” the rapper recounted. “And it would make me feel so ugly and undeveloped.”
Before hitting it big time as a musician, Cardi B famously worked as a dancer in a strip club. She revealed during her chat that she used the money from that job to undergo breast augmentation surgery, which made “every insecurity that I felt about my breasts” melt away.
“When I was 20, I went to the urban strip club, and in the urban strip clubs, you had to have a big butt. So I felt insecure about that. It took me back to high school. So I got my a– done,'” Cardi revealed. “And then I felt super confident.”
See, there’s nothing to be ashamed of. If big fake tits are going to make you happy, then knock yourself out. Just don’t lie about it, no one believes you look half your age because of good living.

There are a lot of theories as to why Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are getting divorced, but they all basically boil down to “It’s Kanye West, the shock is he managed to stay married this long.”
That’s pretty much going to be the correct answer. No one thinks this divorce is because of things Kim Kardashian did or said or difficulties she caused, even though this is her third divorce. Marrying Kanye West was the best thing Kim could have done for her image; she was not exactly well-regarded by the public in the past but pretty much everyone has taken her side in the Kanye West divorce.
Instyle reports the basic reason their marriage broke down was Kanye is stubborn.
“There is no drama between Kim and Kanye,” the source said. “Kim is mostly just disappointed that they couldn’t figure out how to stay married.”
“But it takes two people to create a happy marriage,” the source added. “Kim has felt Kanye is not willing to do the hard work and compromise.”
Boy, does that sound like Kanye or what?
You have to compromise to make a relationship work and Kanye West is not the compromising type. Remember we heard stories that when Kanye became religious he started telling Kim to be less sexy and whatnot?
Kanye makes big decisions and expects everyone around to make whatever he wants to happen. That’s probably great if you’re a musician; Van Halen famously wanted all the brown M&Ms removed from a bowl of M&Ms backstage at every venue they played at as a way to check and see if the venue was following the little details in their rider or if they’d have to recheck all the electrical and pyro so they didn’t get hurt. Eddie Van Halen never told Valerie Bertinelli to take the brown M&Ms out of a bowl of M&Ms for him, though, and Kanye seems like the type of person who would.

Sabrina Carpenter released a new song called Skin that started a whole conspiracy on the internet about the song being about her ex boyfriend who I guess is dating a new girl named Olivia Rodrigo who also released a song around the same time. It might even be the other way around and the boyfriend could be Olivia’s ex. Anyway everyone thought the song was a Diss track and Sabrina had to clear things up via instagram.
“i wasn’t bothered by a few lines in a (magnificent) song and wrote a diss track about it. i was at a tipping point in my life for countless reasons. so i was inspired to do what i usually do to cope, write something that i wish i could have told myself in the past. people can only get to you if you give them the power to. and a lot of people were trying to get to me. the song isn’t calling out one single person. some lines address a specific situation, while other lines address plenty of other experiences I’ve had this past year.. it also shows that many things have actually gotten under my skin.. and I’m still learning to not give other people so much power over my feelings. I know a lot of you struggle with the same thing. i don’t want this to become an endless cycle so please don’t take this as an opportunity to send more hate anyone’s way.
lots of love to u all. thanks for letting me grow.”
