Ugh


Janay Rice, wife of Ray Rice, on Today Show with Matt Lauer
(Ray Rice’s wife Janay Rice, along with her um…very youthful looking mother, speaking about the ‘elevator incident’ to The Today Show‘s Matt Lauer.)

Is it possible that a man can love a woman and be a “good person” (whatever that means in 2014) and still knock her unconscious, drag her body like rolled up rug, and look at her, half-in half-out of an elevator, with drunken blankness? Perhaps. Anything is possible. But only time will tell (and it may never tell us, the public) if this is the case for controversial football star Ray Rice and his wife Janay. Ray won an appeal when a judge reversed the NFL’s indefinite suspension last week, so he is available for hire. Janay sat down with The Today Show to share her side of what happened in that Atlantic City elevator last spring, and why she not only went on to marry the man who punched her, but also stand by his side as the media, the public and the Baltimore Ravens (temporarily and for everyone’s own devices) made an example of Ray Rice.

Watch Janay and her mom,

Back when Janice Dickinson, the polarizing plasticized 70’s-80’s supermodel and America’s Next Top Model judge, wrote her autobiography No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World’s First Supermodel in 2002, she allegedly included a story about being raped by Bill Cosby. In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Dickinson both restates the Cosby rape allegation, but also claims that the legendary comedian and his legal team pressured her publisher HarperCollins to remove the story from the book’s first draft. Instead, a less detailed story, stopping short of rape accusations but still creepy, was included. (Read that version here on Vice)

Here’s what Janice Dickinson is now telling ET about her encounter in Lake Tahoe in 1982, when she accepted an invitation from Cosby to meet up to discuss a possible acting job…she claims that after dinner, she accepted a glass of red wine, and a pill to help her with cramps. And then…

The next morning I woke up, and I wasn’t wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man,” she tells ET. “… Before I woke up in the morning, the last thing I remember was Bill Cosby in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe and getting on top of me. And I remember a lot of pain. The next morning I remember waking up with my pajamas off and there was se–n in between my legs.

If you were hoping to see a Whitney Houston hologram, it’s not happening in the near future. Quite frankly, it’s only been two years since the singer passed, so we can understand why the head of her state, Pat Houston (her sister-in-law), has turned down such requests when asked. You will however, get to see Whitney live through the new CD/DVD coming out titled Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances.

kesha-dr-luke-ascap

 

In early January, 2014, multi-platinum pop star Kesha (“Tik Tok”, “Animal”, “C’mon”, “Die Young,” etc) entered herself into a treatment center to deal with her anorexia and bulimia. At the time, Kesha via her outspoken mother Pebe Sebert, blamed Kesha’s body image problems on criticism from her label head/producer Dr. Luke. After spending 2 months in rehab (with mom Pebe checking in as well to be with her daughter and get treatment for “post-traumatic stress”), Kesha was released and posted online that she’s back to making music. But today, she dropped a bombshell lawsuit, accusing Dr. Luke of nearly 10 years of abuse, ranging from sexual assault to forced drug use to battery. Much more serious than the original fat-shaming claims.

Update: Dr. Luke has responded with his own lawsuit…charging Kesha with extortion.

Oh just bring on the aneurysm. The first season of VH1’s ‘Love And Hip Hop Hollywood’ will be infecting us in just a few scant days. While New York seems to have run it’s course, and Atlanta has gone from telenovela hilarity to tiring absurdity…the latest iteration of the exaggerated reality of has-beens and never-wuzes is now based in Los Angeles (Houston and Miami allegedly on the way?) with a cast that includes Ray J, Soulja Boy, Omarion…Lil Fizz and Yung Berg. LIL FIZZ AND YUNG BERG.
Do you need help getting up?

Also, primed to “bring the drama” is Teairra Mari…most notable for having far too many vowels in her first name, as well as being the Jay Z ingenue that did not become Rihanna.

Screen Shot 2014-09-04 at 1.24.23 PM

Apparently Ray J was dating Teairra (perhaps in preparation for a juicy storyline for this show)…but is now dating his personal assistant. So there will be fights…
As previewed in the video below, along with Teddy Riley’s daughter Nia making a terrible mistake with Soulja Boy….um, TELL ‘EM?

Manuel Noriega
(Real-life Manny vs. Call of Duty Manny)

I must repeat this Theophilus London album title at least 6-7 times a week, but it always fits….Timez Are Weird These Days.
Like today, as the New York Times reports that Noriega is suing Activision over the videogame Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
Wait…Noriega?

adele new album.jpg
Following a lengthy hiatus, Adele is back with some big news today. The Grammy-winning singer has announced her new album, 25, as well as a tour which she’ll begin in 2015 (it’s unclear whether the album will arrive in 2015 or late 2014, though). 25 will serve as the follow-up to Adele’s massively successful 2011 LP, 21, which has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide. Of course, the title continues her trend of naming her albums after her age when she recorded it. While other details remain scarce, Phil Collins was reported to have been working on the project last year.

UPDATE:
Miss Info: OUTRAGE! Serves us right for ever looking to the stupid ass wack ass World Music Awards as a credible source for anything….but the chairman of Beggars Group (parent company of XL Recordings) Martin Mills (who is a lovely fellow that we spoke with on a SxSW panel a few years back) has crushed our hopes, telling Billboard that there is “no truth” to the announcement.
Kicking ourselves. F- you, World Music Awards. Apologies to you readers. Halp, Adele!

Vybz Kartel has met his fate. After being found guilty of the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams following a 65-day trial last month, the Jamaican dancehall star has been sentenced to life in prison, The Gleaner reports. He must serve 35 years before becoming eligible for parole. The three other men convicted in the murder — Shawn “Shawn Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones and Andre St John — were all handed life sentences, too.

Kartel’s defense plans to appeal the decision, citing “discrepancies, inconsistencies, missing data, and mismanagement in the collection of evidence as well as the integrity of the evidence,” but it remains to be seen what success they’ll have.

UPDATE: Billboard published a more comprehensive report on today’s sentence and possible appeal, as well as some details on whether or not Vybz Kartel will be able record music in prison.

dm-instagram

The wait is over for Instagram’s new messaging service, Instagram direct. Perverts worldwide now have a new way of feeding their disgusting needs. For the rest of us, this is a cool way to share pics and talk with just a select group of our IG friends. However, as most were wrong about, you cannot send a message without a pic. Yes, every message must come with a photo and you can also send the pic to mutiple friends as one time. You can also check to see who has and has not checked the message as well as chat in real time. Don’t worry about ads though, insiders at Instagram say its still way to early to even have that discussion. Tech Crunch has a nice checklist of the features, which you can check out after the jump.

Miss Info:Now, Mikey….correct me if I’m wrong….
but I think only people you follow can send you a IG Direct…
Therefore…if you dudes are so worried about thirstmongers harrassing your womenfolk with unsolicited peen pics…then maybe you best keep a closer eye on your boo’s follow counts. See, it’s like with vampires…they can only come in your house and vein-pillage if you invite them in the door. #InfoLogic
