A cause of death for PRINCE remains “pending” following the completion of an initial autopsy on Friday (22Apr16).
There is no denying that Prince Rogers Nelson, aka Prince to most, was a talented and legendary force in music. His unapologetic attitude and his daring creativity shaped our cultural landscape.
But what Prince is NOT is a ticket for a free ride.
Meeka Late, a so-called Prince fan, posted a desperate GoFundMe campaign begging and pleading for friends and strangers to contribute to her efforts to attend Prince’s funeral.
She’s seeking $3,000 and she gives no specifics on how she calculated that amount, especially since there hasn’t been any funeral information distributed.
The most pathetic part, aside from her exhausting misspellings and piss-poor grammar, is this picture attempting to show her “crying” over Prince’s death. Meeka even has the nerve to zoom in on her face to give us a close-up of her “tears.”
Unfortunately, it just looks to me like she’s been sweating, not crying over the loss of Prince for hours on end.
Here’s Meeka’s pitch for you to give your hard-earned coins to her so she can attend Prince’s funeral:
Y’all know I love me some Prince… I just need y’all to help get me to his funeral. Lord I broke down in Sam’s Club… y’all I was on the floor SangN “Purple Rain”… This man was supposed to sAng “Darling Nikki ” at my wedding….. Lord help me make it through this!
Any donation will help.
So this bitch is out in here Sam’s Club giving sob-filled karaoke renditions of “Purple Rain?” I hope Sam’s Club is not her place of employment and she was just a shopper, cause she’s finna be out of a job otherwise if she keeps this foolery up.
As far as Prince singing “Darling Nikki” at her wedding:
1.) I highly doubt she’s dating and/or anywhere close to being proposed to, considering… nevermind.
2.) Is she really a Prince fan? Because a real Prince fan would know he doesn’t sing raunchy material from his catalogue like “Darling Nikki” since he became a Jehovah’s Witness.
3.) Who the HELL would want a song about a masturbating girl to be performed at their WEDDING?
The real gag of all of this though, is that Meeka has successfully raised more than $1,000 of her $3,000 goal.
So even though her pitch is an utter and complete joke, there appear to be enough kind souls on the Internet who are willing to give up their coins no matter how flawed the recipient is.
If you thought the only thing happening in Trader Joe’s was delicious eats and affordable organic produce that won’t leave you broke like shopping at Whole Foods does, think again.
Apparently the crew over at Trader Joe’s is yucking it up by picking on each other and giving out gag gifts. One man, 49-year-old Paul D. Roberts of Pasadena, California, however, was not here for the shenanigans.
CBS Los Angeles reports that a man who was given a so-called “white elephant” gift by his co-workers is pissed off and he’s suing Trader Joe’s over it.
Trader Joe’s is being sued by a former employee who alleges he was fired after complaining about being given a gift resembling male genitalia during the company’s Christmas party in 2014.
The lawsuit filed Tuesday in state court alleges Paul Roberts, 49, was “shocked, embarrassed, and humiliated” after receiving a gift from a co-worker he had known for several years at the Dec. 24 party at a Trader Joe’s location in Pasadena.
Roberts opened the gift described in court papers as “a small penis … which when submerged in water, would increase in size” in front of other employees, as well as a Trader Joe’s supervisor. It was accompanied by a note he perceived to be derogatory.
Soooooo…given that the penis gag gift was “small” and grows when “submerged in water,” coupled with the fact that there was a note perceived to be derogatory, I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that maybe they were making fun of this man’s penis size.
After Roberts was “gifted” the penis gag gift, which he didn’t find amusing, he complained to management, seeking support. Unfortunately, he was rewarded with a firing.
If that was indeed the case, then I don’t blame him for clapping back at his co-workers and I hope he wins his lawsuit. This is the problem with people these days: They don’t know how to mind their damn business and want to cross lines that they ain’t got no business crossing.
You are a damn Trader Joe’s employee. You stock plantain chips on the shelves, clean up spilled milk, bag groceries and serve hot food at the sample counter. You do NOT worry about the size, shape or function of your co-workers’ genitalia and if by some chance, you stumble upon some factual information about your co-worker’s reproductive organs, you certainly don’t broadcast such sensitive information to the entire staff.
These wretched Trader Joe’s bitches with spirits more spoiled than the damn rotten milk sitting on their shelves are the worst. Trader Joe’s, you need to do better.
Ladies and gentlemen, the sexual revolution is upon us. For the past year or so, there’s been a noticeable rise in the interest and discussion around rimming or tossing salad.
Jhene Aiko, in her verse on Omarion’s track “Post to Be” coined a phrase that’s caught on with the hip-hop community:
I might let your boy chauffeur me,
But he gotta eat the booty like groceries
Nicki Minaj also joined Team Rimjob in her track “Only,” where she fantasized about having Drake and Wayne snack on her backside:
Yo, I never f**ked Wayne, I never fucked Drake
On my life, man, f**k’s sake
If I did I menage with ’em and let ’em eat my ass like a cupcake
So it seems that we’ve become somewhat comfortable with the concept of a man eating a woman’s ass, but is the world ready for the reverse? Is it time for men to stand up for anal equality and demand that women lick and suck on their booty holes too?
Tank, the R&B singer, believes that all men are created equal and deserve to have their butts licked. And no, it doesn’t make him gay for openly stating that he likes having his salad tossed.
He recently launched into this rimjobs for men political platform in a minute-long video on his Instagram:
Part of me is like: Good for you for challenging gender norms and encouraging men to do whatever feels good to them in the bedroom.
The other part of me is like: Damn, Tank. Is ranting about licking buttholes really what you want to go down in history for?
It’s always the ones you least expect though. You’d think that someone who’s soft and delicate like August Alsina would be the one loudly proclaiming his love of getting his booty eaten out. Not big ol’ burly Tank. Just goes to show, don’t judge a book by its cover.
Ladies, are you ready to take on the man-booty buffet that Tank is serving?
Birdman appeared on “The Breakfast Club” this morning and things went far from what anyone could have ever expected.
Before the interview even started, the Cash Money head honcho went off on hosts DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne for not “respecking” (i.e. respecting) his name on the show.
As he entered the room, Birdman said, “I want to start this thing off straight telling all three of y’all stop playing with my name. Stop playing with my fucking name. Period. Stop playing with my name and I ain’t gonna say it no more.”
He added, “Stop playing with my fucking name. All TREE of y’all. Stop playing with my name. I ain’t gonna say it NO MOE.”
The look on Angela Yee’s face was PRICE-LESS:

When DJ Envy and Charlamagne finally got Birdman to take a seat and explain his beef with them, he didn’t give them a direct answer and instead targeted his frustration at Charlamagne.
“I wanted to see you. I wanted to talk you as a man to your face. I knew a few places you was at, I could’ve pulled up, but I thought that was gangsta. I wanted to come look you in your face like a man and tell you how I feel,” Birdman told Charlamagne.
Charlamagne popped back, asking Birdman if he would pull up on Rick Ross or Trick Daddy the same way, and this only angered Birdman more, causing him to storm out of the interview.
“I just came to let y’all know, put some respeck on my name. When y’all say my name, put some respeck on it!” Birdman said before rounding up his posse and walking out of the studio, putting an end to what could be considered the shortest interview in Breakfast Club history.
After the interview, Charlamagne threw even more shade at Birdman on Twitter.

DJ Envy also reportedly later said on the air that Birdman called him up and apologized after leaving the station.
Check out a transcript of Birdman’s HIGH-LARIOUS confrontation with Charlamagne below:
Charlamagne: He done cursed us out, get it off your chest, Birdman.
Birdman: I said it already, I ain’t gotta talk no moe.
‘Cause I don’t understand the angle.
I said it already.
So why come here?
I did it already. I’m here. So what’s happening? I wanted to see you. I wanted to talk you as a man to your face. I knew a few places you was at, I could’ve pulled up, but I thought that was gangsta. I wanted to come look you in your face like a man and tell you how I feel.
OK. So what’s the issue?
It ain’t no issue. If it was a issue, you would feel me. I just came to let y’all know, put some respeck on my name, you understand me? When y’all saying my name, put some respeck on it.
Did you pull up on Ross that way? Or Trick Daddy?
Man, I’m pullin’ up on you, nigga.
But I’m the radio guy. Why pull up on the radio guy? Don’t act tough with the radio guy?
I hear you, my nigga. Y’all finished or y’all done? I ain’t got no more talkin’. Let’s rock.
Well, grand opening, grand closing. That’s it. Quickest Breakfast Club interview ever.
Well, damn. Birdman definitely took an “L” with this one!
Jonathon Nicola is a good basketball player. In fact, the 6-foot-9, 202 pound “high school junior” is so good that his coach said in an interview with a local newspaper back in January that he had a pretty good shot at going to the NBA.
Too bad that won’t be happening though, because Jonathon Nicola is apparently a 30-year-old man.
According to Canada’s The Windsor Star, Nicola, who is originally from Sudan, was arrested by Canadian border officers for violating the Immigration Refuge Protection Act. His crime? Being a grown-ass man pretending to be a teenager.
For the past six months, Nicola has been posing as a 17-year-old 11th grade high school student at Catholic Central High School in Ontario, Canada.
It isn’t known how officials found out he wasn’t a 17-year-old 11th grade high school student, and instead, a 30-year-old man, but they did, and here we are.
Nicola was reportedly the star player of the school’s varsity basketball team and was even living with the coach on a student visa through a program called Canada Homestay, which finds homes for foreign students.
Here is a video Nicola’s coach made to show off his skills on the court:
The Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board is keeping tight-lipped about the situation. “There’s really not a whole lot to say,” said spokesman Stephen Fields. “Because of the fact this is a matter that’s still outstanding before the federal authorities, obviously we can’t really comment on it. Beyond that there’s not a whole lot to say.”
When asked if there was concern over the thought of a grown man posing as a teenager in one of the board’s schools, Fields said he wouldn’t comment specifically on the Nicola case.
“Generally I can tell you that we have a system of checks and balances in place that whenever international students are coming into any of our schools, we make sure that they have all of the necessary government documentation that they require in order to be in one of our schools,” said Fields.
He also wouldn’t discuss whether the board plans to alert students and parents about the situation. “Again, generally speaking, if we felt at any time that there is any kind of threat to any of our students at any of our schools, then we would act appropriately,” said Fields.
Back in January, [head coach Pete Cusumano] told the Star in an interview for a feature story that Nicola was so good for a young ballplayer that he had a shot at going to the NBA.
The group Windsor Hoops, which calls itself a “local basketball resource promoting news, players and results from Windsor,” even posted a “prospect video” [see above] that shows Nicola shooting hoops and running drills in the school gym.
Nicola told the Star in the January feature story that he arrived in Windsor on Nov. 22, 2015, just three days before his 17th birthday. He said he left South Sudan, his disease-ridden, wartorn home, for a better life in Windsor.
“A few of my friends know of my background, how we live over there,” he said in January. “I don’t know how many of them have a clue of how it is in Africa.”
Nicola said in January it took him six months to acquire a Canadian student visa. “With the war going on, terrorism and all this, they make it real double hard,” he said.
This definitely changes the whole meaning behind “Big Man on Campus.”
Ball must seriously be life for a 30-year-old man to go through the effort of posing as a 17-year-old high school student just to play on a basketball team though.
The biggest question from this though is … HOW?
How the hell did this guy secure a government-issued student visa that listed him as a 17-year-old? How the hell did the coach not realize that he had this big ass 30-year-old man rooming with him?
How the f**k did this big, grown-ass man just fly under the radar of his teachers, administrators and other members of the school’s factory? How were parents (ESPECIALLY FATHERS!) not concerned when they saw this big ol’ male human walking the halls of their teenage daughter’s school.
HOW? HOW SWAY?!?
