Canadian Police Threaten to Punish Drunk Drivers With Nickelback Music on the Way to Jail

nickelback

Getting a DUI sucks. I know more than a couple of people who have had to deal with this (maybe I should find better friends?) and have seen firsthand the impact it can have on a person’s life.

Kicked out of school, loss of license, having your driving privileges stripped, and those are just the immediate consequences. Not to mention potential jail time and having that black mark on your record.

It’s safe to say everyone knows getting a DUI sucks, and one police department in Canada just announced they’re making it even worse with a cruel and unusual punishment.

In a message posted on Facebook, which has since been removed (shout-out to screenshots!), the Kensington Police Dept. in the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island (P.E.I.) warned that anyone caught driving under the influence will not only be subject to the normal litany of fines and punishments, but they will also be subjugated to listening to the Canadian band Nickelback while being taken to jail.

Ouch. So unless you want to be forced to listen to this on your way to jail (DISCLAIMER: Listen at Your Own Risk)…

You better find a DD or call an Uber if you find yourself in Kensington this holiday season. People shouldn’t need this kind of downright inhumane motivation not to drink in drive, but hey, if it helps keep even one person safe this year, then I support this cruel decision by the Kensington Police Department.

You hear that, David Grohl? They do serve a purpose afterall.

Tennessee Factory Workers Win $421 Million Powerball Lottery Jackpot

tennessee-20-powerball-lottery-winners-421-million-jackpot

Everyone’s dreamt about it at least once in their life. Buying that $1 piece of paper only to wake up the next day a millionaire. For millions, it remains just that – a dream. But for a select few, that dream becomes a reality when they win the Powerball lottery.

Well, 20 factory workers at North American Stamping Group in Portland, Tennessee just became some of the select few to have that dream become a reality. The group, who has been playing together for years, came forward today to claim the $421 million Powerball jackpot.

They’ve said they will split the winnings evenly, which, if they go with the immediate cash-out option, will result in about $12.7 million per person before taxes.

“I thought it was a dream,” said Amy O’Neal, one of the amazingly lucky group members. “You never think you’re going to win this lottery, but you do it for fun.”

For Amy and her nineteen (current) co-workers, the fun’s just beginning. And while we all have our own ideas of what we’d do if we suddenly were given over $12 million dollars…

It seems most of this group have different plans. According to another member of the group, Kevin Southerland, a majority of them plan to keep working at the auto parts manufacturing plant.

“All these people have always had a heart to help people and be there for people,” he said. “We can’t do that if we don’t have any money. Now we can do more and help more. That’s going to be a lot of people blessed.”

While there’s no way in hell I’d keep my day job if I were in their shoes, you have to respect the desire to give back to the community with their newfound fortune.

Barack Obama Crushes Our Hopes, Says Michelle Will “Never Run” for President (or Any Elected Office)

Barack-Michelle-Obama-Election

Despite the outcome, the 2016 Presidential Election is finally over. In addition to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, the other breakout star was First Lady Michelle Obama. FLOTUS left such an in impression that many are suggesting she run for president. But will she actually do it?

President Barack Obama spoke to Rolling Stone magazine the day after the election and discussed his wife’s possible political career. Unfortunately for us, the President says Michelle will “never run” for elected office.

“Michelle will never run for office. She is as talented a person as I know. You can see the incredible resonance she has with the American people. But I joke that she’s too sensible to want to be in politics.”

The President may be eating his words come 2020. I can see fuming Republicans digging into Rolling Stone archives now.

FLOTUS hit the campaign trail hard for Hillary Clinton and was one of Donald Trump’s staunchest critics, without even saying his name. Her speeches were so passionate and moving, she reminded me of 2008 Barack Obama, yet completely standing in her light and not his shadow.

Admittedly, at one point I thought, “Wouldn’t it be amazing if this First Lady becomes President after being mentored by the former First Lady?”

Barack is convinced Michelle is ready to leave campaigns and elections behind, but the couple plans to remain active in the political spectrum, particularly after the Democrats faced such a stunning defeat.

“So, I will continue to be very active, and Michelle is going to continue to be very active – and [on] the very thing that brought us here, which is our belief that when you work with people on the ground at a grassroots level, change happens.”

It will be interesting to see the Obamas’ impact and influence post-White House. Perhaps the two may even be able to accomplish more without such Republican obstructionism.

In the meantime, I still hope Michelle took notes from Hillary Clinton and is secretly developing her campaign strategy.

Did Joseline Hernandez Reveal the Name of Her Baby While Filming a Delivery Special for VH1?

Joseline-Hernandez-Baby-Name-Bonnie

We’ve questioned the paternity and even the pregnancy, but get ready because Joseline Hernandez’s baby will be here soon.

Joseline has posted several baby bump photos on social media over the past few months and the Puerto Rican Princess may have just dropped the biggest bombshell yet: the baby’s name!

While driving to an unknown location, Joseline posted a short video on Instagram claiming she was about to film a scene for her upcoming baby special (more on that in just a second). However, she might have also revealed the name of her soon-to-be first-born child.

“On my way to do the second scene for the delivery special. Little Bonnie. Puerto Rican Princess. VH1.”

Instagram Photo

Joseline clearly says “little Bonnie” in the clip. Speculation has begun to swirl that Bonnie may be the name the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star has chosen. It has already been confirmed that she’s expecting a girl.

Bonnie is actually really cute, but also very unexpected from Shenellica Bettencourt/Joseline Hernandez/Puerto Rican Princess. Given that paternity is still up in the air as Stevie J. is preparing to take a DNA test, it’s currently unknown if the new baby will be “Bonnie Jordan” or “Bonnie Hernandez.”

Now, back to that supposed “baby special.” Joseline has hinted for months that she is documenting her pregnancy for a reality show special. However, VH1 (home of Love & Hip Hop) has not confirmed this nor does it even seem to be aware of its existence.

Still, Joseline followed her “Little Bonnie” video with posts of her shooting the aforementioned “second scene.”

Joseline is expected to give birth in January. We will keep you updated on any paternity or VH1 delivery special news.

Brandy’s Mama Sonja Norwood Joins in to Shade Monica on Instagram, and Brandy Is Not Letting the Beef Go

Sonja-Norwood-Brandy-Monica-Shade

Love & Hip Hop is starting to rub off on Ray J and Brandy’s mama. Sonja Norwood has jumped in the Brandy/Monica drama by adding her two cents on social media.

The internet has been calling Brandy out for months regarding her pettiness towards Monica. Brandy’s latest solo shade throwing session occurred Monday (Nov. 28) after she referred to the late Whitney Houston as her “fairy godmother” on Instagram.

Brandy reflected on their close relationship just days after Monica appeared on OWN’s Where Are They Now? and also called Whitney her “fairy godmother.”

Instagram Photo

Brandy later posted a clip of her performance at the 2016 Soul Train Awards, where she received the Lady of Soul Award. Social media was also quick to catch the shade as she changed a few lyrics of one of her songs, referencing her beef with Monica.

Cue Mrs. Norwood’s entrance. The singer’s mother commented on the video stating that Whitney was “not everyone’s godmother.”

Sonja-Norwood-Post

The simple comment started a firestorm and Monica fans began to go in on Brandy’s mama. Sonja has never been one to play with and she defended herself and her daughter.

Instagram Photo

Calling out Brandy is one thing, but her mama is a whole different ballgame. Brandy responded and poignantly wrote “don’t EVER come for my mom.” She also owned up to her petty ways, but still tries to justify the shadiness because she elusively “knows something no else does.”

Brandy-Sonja-Norwood-Instagram

Brandy clearly has no intention of letting this Monica beef go anytime soon. It’s unfortunate that Mrs. Sonja is now involved. I was shocked the momager allowed her children appear on Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, let alone pop up herself. However, it looks like the reality show is the perfect fit for the family.

Did 21 Savage Get Knocked Out With a Bottle While Performing in Arizona?

did-21-savage-get-knocked-out-video

21 Savage is known for two things: his blatant savagery (hence his name) and his boring stage presence, which is kind of like watching someone do something they really don’t want to do.

One of those two things could be the reason why he was allegedly attacked while performing a show in Arizona the other night.

But did it REALLY happen? That’s the question everyone wants to know following reports saying the Hip Hop newcomer got knocked out with a bottle on stage.

According to a rumor picked up by some blogs, the “X” rapper “got knocked OUT COLD” during a concert in Arizona this past weekend.

There’s even this grainy-ass photo being passed around online as “proof” of the knockout:

As well as this video footage, which basically shows a whole lot of nothing:

And here’s the story (via MTO):

According to multiple reports, 21 Savage had some kind of ISSUES with a local gang, but he decided to put on a show for fans anyway.

While performing, the local goons started THROWING BOTTLES on stage. One KNOCKED OUT his security (dude with the baldy), and another knocked out 21 Savage (in the red behind him).

The rapper was reportedly rushed off the stage mid-performance.

Cool story, bro. Only… it didn’t really happen, and we knew that before 21 Savage released this video response denying being knocked out:

Instagram Photo

“If you believe that shit you a fucking idiot. You think I’m finna let somebody touch me? We do all the knocking outs around this motherfucker. Nobody over here getting knocked out ever in life. If I got knocked out, my jewelry would be all over the Internet. Fucking idiots.”

Well, he does have a point…

It’s 2016 and virtually EVERYONE has smartphones. If a popular, up-and-coming rapper with multiple hits on the Billboard Hot 100 really were to get knocked out on stage while performing, there would be video of it happening, and not just the aftermath (as seen in the footage above).

You would also expect to see a ton of first-hand social media accounts from people who love to revel in the misery of others (which is what the Internet is for after-all, right?).

Anyhow, there’s nothing to see here. So, to answer your question, NO, 21 Savage did NOT get knocked out with a bottle … even though if that did happen, it would probably be more interesting than his performance.

Seriously, dude needs to learn some stage presence.

Floyd Mayweather Responds to T.I. Shade With $100 Million Check Photo, T.I. Posts Inspirational Message

Floyd-Mayweather-TI

Floyd Mayweather is either starting the #100MillionDollarCheckChallenge or he’s clapping back at T.I.’s recent Instagram shade. I guessing it’s the latter; I mean, ’cause who really has $100 million checks just lying around?

Floyd and Tip beefing for over two years, and the feud got new life after Tip posted a video on Instagram of Kevin Hart clowning Floyd following (or preceding, it’s hard to keep up!) the release of footage showing T.I.’s wife, Tiny Harris, dancing with Floyd at Mariah Carey’s Halloween party.

it’s not surprising Money Mayweather would respond to the IG slam. Floyd took to his own account and blasted “backseat drivers” that are more “worried about another man’s legacy instead of trying to write their own.” The photo attached was an uncashed $100 million check.

Instagram Photo

Since he noted he will “always have the last laugh” and added “the jokes on you,” many believe the Mayweather’s IG photo was an indirect jab at Tip and Hart for clowning him.

The clapback was pretty good in the beginning. However, the insanely wealthy retired boxer then gets a little superficial and materialistic. Any average 9-5 Joe may even find the post condescending.

“Y’all still have to work however, I’m happily retired… Y’all call them watches, I call them time pieces. Y’all call them boats, I call them yachts. Y’all call them houses, I call them mansions. Y’all charter jets and we own jets.”

This could still be shade at T.I. and all of Mayweather’s haters, but it kinda hurts the strong start he had. But hey – that’s just my thought.

Since the whole “love triangle” and beef dominated entertainment news headlines for the past few days, Tip recently posted an inspirational message on Instagram.

Always accept responsibility for YOUR actions. Learn from them, be better, move forward, be happy!!! Don’t make excuses when the heats on you… always be accountable, & rise above whatever adversity life throws at you. Your past doesn’t define you, your future does. Life has a way of allowing your bad decisions to take you to Gods perfect place for you. All you gotta do is Be Strong & Stay Solid!!!! The FAIL is never as important as the FIX!!!! And Don’t let none of these ratchet-ass low life,miserable morons tell you different. End of msg. #LifesTooShort #DontTripBeHappy

Instagram Photo

Both men have now said their piece. Maybe Mayweather v Tip is finally coming to the 12th round.

Is Sheree Whitfield Dating Jailbird Tyrone Gilliams, the Man That Caused Her Epic Fallout with Nene Leakes?

Sheree-Tyrone-Gilliams-Dating-Rumor

Word on the street is that Sheree Whitfield has a new boo, but it’s not her ex-husband Bob Whitfield. Sources say she’s been literally been “calling Tyrone” and, if the rumor is true, he may currently be in jail.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s current storyline has her attempting to rekindle a romantic relationship with Bob. However, a few sources say that’s just for the show and claiming Sheree is actually in a relationship with a man named Tyrone Gilliams.

Gossip blog Fameolous first broke the story, with receipts (of course). Three sources have come forward suggesting Sheree has a “mystery man” that’s currently locked up in an Atlanta prison. His name is Tyrone, but he goes by “OG.”

sheree-tyrone-fameolous-1

One of the sources claims to have seen Sheree visit him on two occasion. The source also added that Tyrone calls himself Sheree’s “husband,” but it’s unclear if they’re actually married or even engaged.

sheree-tyrone-fameolous-2

The name Tyrone Gilliams might sound familiar because he was featured on reality show back in 2011 and was the cause of Sheree and Nene Leakes’ epic argument, the one where Nene claims to be a “very rich bitch” and Sheree responds by urging Nene to “get your teeth fixed.”

Tyrone presented himself as a Philadelphia promoter and philanthropist. However, he turned out to be nothing more than a fraud. He was sentenced 10 years in prison in 2013 after stealing nearly $5 million from investors in a Ponzi scheme.

The rumor is largely just that. A rumor. So don’t expect Sheree to confirm the relationship and it most likely won’t ever become a storyline on RHOA. However, between Sheree, Phaedra Parks, and Teresa Giudice, the Real Housewives definitely love a man with a criminal record.

J. Anthony Brown Abruptly Departs the Tom Joyner Morning Show, Unable to Say Farewell On-Air

j-anthony-brown-leaves-tom-joyner

Morning radio, as we know it, is about to change forever. After two decades of bringing his unique humor to pop culture and news topics, J. Anthony Brown has left the Tom Joyner Morning Show.

Sitting alongside Tom Joyner and Sybil Wilkes for more than 20 years, Brown become part of one of — if not the — most popular trios in black radio, broadcasting in over 100 markets. But, without much warning, the popular trio has disbanded as an official announcement came on Monday (Nov. 28).

The comedian did not have a proper send-off and was unable to say his goodbyes on-air. Through his own platform, Brown thanked longtime listeners, Tom Joyner, and the TJMS crew. Despite the unceremonious farewell, he doesn’t seem to harbor any hard feelings; he chalks it up to the nature of the radio business.

Brown also released a written statement echoing the same sentiment:

“I want to thank all the listeners and fans for embracing me for more than 20 years on the ‘Tom Joyner Morning Show.’ You were a captive audience, and your support and feedback encouraged me to be a better comic and a better social commentator, reflecting the world around us. I am eternally grateful to Tom Joyner and the morning crew for the years of friendship and laughs, in sickness and in health. I thank you for the opportunity to showcase my talents, and allowing me to have a voice on morning radio.”

Brown’s last day appearing on the show was Black Friday (Nov. 25). He was supposed to continue through Wednesday (Nov. 30), but it seems Brown was asked not to report to the studio, apparently due to behind-the-scenes politics. Brown’s contract was expected to expire at the end of the year and the TJMS will reportedly “move in a new direction” in 2017.

Brown “quit” mid-show in January of this year due to conflicts behind-the-scenes. However, he returned soon after. It’s unclear if the “conflicts” or his departure involves Joyner, Wilkes, or any of the other on-air personalities.

A replacement for the comedian has yet to be named. Other comedians and celebrity guests will fill the void on a rotating basis until a permanent co-host is selected.

Brown launched his own syndicated weekend radio talk show in 2015. Currently in 10 markets, the 2-hour-long show is expected to be revamped and his primary focus in 2017.

Until he is back on all our stations, listeners will certainly miss his signature catchphrase: “Watch out deh, now!

Memphis Rapper Lody Lucci Leaks Jessica Dime Sextape After She Shows Off Her New Boo Shawne Williams

lody-lucci-jessica-dime-shawne-williams

Another Love & Hip Hop Atlanta cast member has a sextape circulating online, and this time, it’s Jessica Dime.

According to Fameolous, LHHATL newcomer Jessica D was messing with a Memphis rapper/producer who goes by the name Lody Lucci (aka Lil Lody) at some point.

While they were together, Lucci apparently recorded a video of them smashing, and he’s been keeping the video on ice ever since, waiting for the right moment to “expose” the stripper turned reality star.

Recently, Jessica posted photos on Instagram showing off her new boo, former NBA player Shawne Williams (who Fameolous says left his wife to be with Dime).

This apparently pissed Lody Lucci off to the point where he decided to be messy and leak the video of him and Dime bumping uglies to Fameolous.

Jessica-Dime-Sextape

And now, Jessica Dime is officially part of the LHHATL sextape crew, joining the likes of Tia Becca (Tiarra), Mimi Faust and Dime’s arch nemesis Joseline Hernandez.

We can’t post the video footage of Dime’s sextape here, but you can check it out for yourself by clicking on the screenshots below:

Though you can’t see Jessica Dime’s face in the flick (because it’s nothing but backshots), the clips posted on Twitter show this tattoo Dime has on her lower back:
