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.

Not quite sure how else to describe this photo of Justin Bieber bellying up to the boob-bar with his buddy, Khalil Sharieff, but…
That’s Amore!




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

Things have been spiraling downhill for Amanda Bynes for months now, from her infamous “I want Drake to murder my vagina” tweet, to her creepy nicki-minaj transformation, to being kicked out of the Ritz Carlton after smoking weed and ordering room service 40 times …it’s been frightening to watch. But maybe this latest development is just the stopgap that the former child-star needs. Last night, Mandy was put on a “5150 hold” by police after she started a fire in a complete stranger’s driveway in Thousand Oaks, CA. When police asked her what she was doing there, her answers convinced them she needed to be admitted. For those not familiar with the 5150 California Welfare and Institutions code, that means she is confined to an involuntary psychiatric ward for up to 72 hours, pending evaluation.

According to the elderly lady who lived at the house, she was clueless about the strange young woman in her driveway (via  TMZ):

“…She had no idea what was going on until cops knocked on her front door. She says cops asked her, “Do you know anyone by the name of Amanda Bynes, or why she would have some vendetta against you?” She said no … not surprising because the woman is elderly.

Cops then described to her that there was a young lady in her driveway, who had lit a fire and was carrying a “little red gas tank.” The homeowner says cops told her Amanda had burned part of her clothing.”

Consequence Fighting Joe Budden

I’m sorry to do this to you…but misery loves company. Yesterday, we heard about how Consequence ran up on an unsuspecting Joe Budden, who was on a smoke break with Tahiry during the taping of the ‘Love and Hip Hop New York” reunion taping, and smacked him on the head. Cons immediately bragged about the attack on twitter. Joe immediately called Angie Martinez to scoff and tell how Tahiry punched Cons. Is this all sounding most noble so far?
Well, apparently, after all the showboating…all parties went back into the soundstage to keep shooting the reunion. Obviously. And afterwards, Joe exacted some sort of revenge. He and Cons had another altercation…and judging from the camera-phone footage, this time Joe Budden ran off while security tucked Cons into his minivan and his wife Jen screamed bloody murder.
(PS: by the way…Joe and Tahiry are apparently dating again. No big surprise there.)

Brace yourself….for a perfect storm of horribleness

Hold Up, JT! Don’t You Turn Your Back On Me…I’m Talking To You!

Miss Info: Wait a minute….so all this buildup was for, another version of buildup?!
Last night’s revelation was that Justin Timberlake was stopping all that In Time acting nonsense and Southern Hospitality BBQ nonsense and William Rast slacks nonsense and giving us what the good Lord meant for his curly-haired seedling to deliver….MUSIC. And the world rejoiced….and set their cell-phone alerts for a 12:00 EST debut of this JT x Jay-Z x Timbaland benediction.

Screen Shot 2013-01-10 at 12.18.07 PM

So what happened at noon?
When you click on Justin Timberlake’s new “countdown” site, there’s a clock counting down for another three days. And a video of Justin talking some balderdash gobbledygook about his journey and being “ready” and some such.

That is not what I’m here for. I want the singing and the jazz hands and the Jay-Z and the Timbo “uhhs” and the possible Beyonce “ooooos”. Not. More. Dramatic. Monologues.
So give!

(Full Disclosure: I will still be waiting with baited breath when this shxt finally drops on Monday. And I’ve heard multiple label insiders who have raved that the whole Justin x Timbo project is crack crills. Obviously.)

Feel my pain…Watch Justin Timberlake’s waiting for godot video…

Lil’ Debbie, the former member of Kreayshawn‘s “White Girl Mob,” jumps onto the inappropriate post-presidential election name-dropping bandwagon with a song that has nothing to do with its namesake “Michelle Obama” and a video that’s pretty much the antithesis to everything the FLOTUS and POTUS have ever repped.

If you’re horrified in the first 30 seconds, stay the course to hear Debbie rap about Ryan Seacrest, Tom Brady, and her “coupe the color of Kanye.” Yes. That happened.

Watch below…

I got an acute stabbing pain behind my eyes after watching Donald Trump’s “big announcement” the other day….the announcement was a ridiculous farce wherein that clown waved his hands and yelled at us like he keeping beat to some mechanical toy monkey beating a tin drum in his head. Oh, and the “announcement” was that he was baiting President Obama to give up his passport and college transcripts in exchange for a $5million donation to the charity of Obama’s choice. The reason being Trump believes 1) Obama used a fake passport to get into Pakistan in 1981, and 2) Obama was a poor student… who somehow scammed his way through Harvard, and stumbled into being the editor of the Harvard Law Review. We all saw how well Trump’s last demand for Obama’s birth certificate went, and he’s so delusional and pompous, he doesn’t see how offensive his grandstanding is.
But leave it to Stephen Colbert to not only highlight how disgusting Trump is…but also masterfully clown him with his own tools. Watch the video above….

Nation, I am so moved by this generous offer, that I have an offer of my own, right over here. Mr. Trump, I will write you a check for $1 million from Colbert super PAC – you know I’ve got it – to the charity of your choice, anything, save the children, feed the children, put the children on “Child Apprentice,” whatever. One million actual dollars if you will let me dip my balls in your mouth…
Nothing would make me happier than to write this check. And nothing would make America happier than to have something going into your mouth instead of coming out of it.

High five, Colbert.
Trump is being called out by everyone. Everyone is fed up, even Barbara Walters. And he’s super tight. Trump and his team spazzed on The Guardian and Greta Van Susterren…and then even took to forcing David Letterman for a showcase to plead Trump’s case tonight. They basically just circled each other and then Trump promoted his ugly tie collection. Phooey.

While Drake has been tweeting about how many times he listened to Chief Keef’s “Love Sosa”…another member of Keef’s crew is getting attention for a different kind of “hit.”

Lil’ Reese…who, along with Lil’ Durk, is one of the more talented members of Keef’s GBE crew…is seen in this shaky cell phone footage arguing with a female at some kind of house party.
After the argument escalates, you see Lil’ Reese poke the young woman. She smacks his hand away. He shoves her. She rushes him in retaliation….and then Reese proceeds to punch and kick her repeatedly even after the girl is prone on the ground, clearly no longer fighting back.

This is not like the infamous uppercut video, where a crazy woman spits on and attacks a bus driver, before he knocks her out. Both the driver and the woman are facing charges.

This is not like the murder of Jo Jo, a 16-year-old aspiring rapper, whose public beef with Chicago rivals, Chief Keef, Lil Reese and Lil Durk was just as much a gang beef as it was a rap one. Keef and Reese mocked the murder on twitter.

It’s not about poverty, or gang culture, or lead-based paint. This is just a demonstration of an inferior human character…and the sign of someone who needs help and punishment.

Be disgusted…
