chris-brown

Chris Brown appeared in a Los Angeles court on Monday for a progress hearing. L.A. Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin revoked Chris Brown’s probation after the R&B star was hit with assault charges following an altercation in Washington D.C. earlier this year. A criminal complaint filed was enough proof that Brown violated his probation stemming from his 2009 assault on Rihanna.

wale complex

Leave Wale off your end-of-year list, and receive an angry phone call full of threats. That’s what Complex Magazine discovered on Wednesday afternoon as the MMG rapper phoned Associate Editor Insanul Ahmed and expressed his outrage that The Gifted wasn’t included on their list of 50 Best Albums of 2013. Folarin’s emotions escalated over the three-minute call as he accused Complex of holding a personal bias and favoring albums like Juicy J’s Stay Trippy over his, before threatening physical violence.

I swear to God I’ll come to that office and start knocking n****s the f*ck out. Alright. I’ll see y’all tomorrow. Get the security ready.

We’re not going to sit here and pretend like this kind of thing hasn’t been happening since the dawn of hip-hop journalism, but threatening a publication and its staff for not giving your music love is no laughing matter. Come on, Wale.

nelson-mandela

One of the greatest leaders of modern times, Nelson Mandela, passed away Thursday afternoon at the age of 95. The revolutionary, politician, and former President of South Africa lost a well-documented long battle with illness. A transformative figure in world history, Mandela was remembered by various celebrities on various social media platforms moments after current South African president Jacob Zuma confirmed the tragic news.

Beyoncé, Rihanna, Nas, Justin Timberlake, Q-Tip, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, John Legend, Ludacris, Kelly Rowland, Busta Rhymes, LL Cool J, and more sent their prayers, wishes, and memories to Mandela on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and in Jay Z’s case his Life and Times website.

“It always seems impossible until it is done.” – Nelson Mandela

Thank you.

Rest In PEACE.

MissInfo.TV is sad to report that Nelson Mandela has passed away. The former president battled health issues in recent months, including a recurring lung infection that led to numerous hospitalizations. He was released from a South African prison after nearly 27 years and there’s no doubt that Mandela did everything in his power to lead his people out of Apartheid. South African President Jacob Zuma announced late Thursday that the statesman died from health complications at the age of 95. His legacy will undoubtly live on through all those inspired by his life and actions. Rest in peace to a true king.

brian-and-stewie-family-guy

SPOILER ALERT (technically, I don’t think I should have to say this because the episode already aired, but just in case…)

I can’t believe it either. While watching Pitbull, who was looking like a terrible Men’s Warehouse sales model on the American Music Awards, I totally missed out one of the biggest shockers in animated TV history. Seth MacFarlane‘s flagship series Family Guy killed off one of it’s most compelling characters, Brian the Family Dog.

WHAT?!
WHY?!

Not only does Brian get hit by a car–a way mundane way for a high IQ, novel-writing, cross-species-dating, tap-dancing dog to go — but Peter Griffin and family even replace him with a new dog, Vinny. Voiced by Tony Sirico. So, basically a dog version of Paulie Walnuts. Maron!

lamar odom

As a Lakers fan, it truly hurts my heart to see one of our ex-key players (thanks again, Mitch) go on a public downward spiral like this. Despite recent reports suggesting that the Clippers have taken “serious interest” in re-signing the forward, it appears Lamar Odom is still struggling with his much-discussed crack addiction. TMZ have obtained this clip (said to be filmed this month) of L.O. freestyling with a friend while apparently high. I mean, that would explain his slurred words and unstable state. Also the fact that him and his buddy are shirtless.

Speaking of NBA meltdowns, remember the time Stephon Marbury ate vaseline on-camera?
