‘Its been a long time.. since I came around. It’s been a long time. But I’m back in town. And this time I’m not leavin without Drew’s News’…
If any of you recognize those lyrics minus the Drew’s News part I’ll be very impressed.
Enough teasing and more pleasing! Drew’s News let’s go!
The smile of a madman.
Another day, another hate filled Mel Gibson rant surfaces on the internet. The “Passion of the Christ” star, who has gained more notoriety for being an anti-semite nut job than being known for his films, is back in the headlines for a secretly recorded audio meltdown towards his producer in an upcoming project, “The Maccabees”. During the rant dating back to December in Costa Rica, Gibson can be heard exploding at the producer for not providing him with a screenplay, and nearly has a heart attack in anger and rage. His baby momma Oksana Gregorieva was also lucky enough to get a mention by ”I am earning money for a filthy little c**ksucker who takes advantage of me.” . Among other highlights include “Who wants to eat!? Who the f*** wants to eat?! Go have something to eat! Huraaaaay! F***!!!!!” You stay classy Mel. Below is the audio to the hate filled rant. The language is harsh so if you’re easily offended—— still watch it. Who wants to eat?
Chatter: Mel Gibson is such an asshole and everyone knows it. He knows it! When he was arrested in 2006 in Malibu for a DUI and started screaming anti-Semite slurs towards the police officer that was arresting him, wasn’t that enough of a red flag 6 (!!) years ago that this guy was a nut? Then comes the phone recordings of him verbally berating the mother of his child, Oksana Gregorieva, who, don’t be fooled, isn’t completely innocent and pure. She’s a nut job too, just on a much smaller scale. Then this happens. Come on now. What happened to this guy? He used to be one of the world’s most sought after actor! How do you go from being an Academy Award winner to a hateful drunk that is one step away from murdering someone out of rage? How much more shame and segregation does this a-hole need to realize what’s he’s done to himself? Sad.
Rapper Tupac Shakur attending the MTV Video Music Awards in 1996. Wanna feel old? I was only 1 year old. Have a good day!
Tupac Shakur came back from the dead over the weekend, but only for a performance of course. Why else would he back? The rapper, killed back in 1997 by a drive by shooting in his black BMW, was resurrected over the weekend via Hologram for a performance with Snoop Dogg at an annual music festival Coachella in California. The crowd went absolutely wild, especially the intoxicated/stoned ones I could imagine. Thinking your hallucinating when you’re not sure you’re hallucinating from drugs could be troubling. “Pac” as I’ve heard him be referred to as, performed two of his big songs alongside Snoop Dogg, one being “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted”. After watching it a couple times, Snoop Dogg begins to look like the Hologram. Yikes.
And yeah, language is.. strong in the video.
Chatter: I don’t really have much to say since the whole “East Coast vs West Coast” thing is way before my time, but I think the Hologram thing is very cool and has great potential. When this story came out, I wasn’t even really concerned about the fact it was Tupac’s Hologram being shown at some sort of music festival. The first thing I thought of was the massive potential this could have for other artists much bigger than Tupac Shakur. Could you imagine a Michael Jackson tour with his performance on a 3D scale? Or Jimi Hendrix? Elvis Presley? Sure it isn’t the same as these icons still being here and performing live but isn’t it the next best thing? I wouldn’t be surprised if this becomes a concert trend in the next couple years and the Hologram technology becomes more sophisticated.
I don’t have no fear of death. My only fear is coming back reincarnated.
Not only a pioneer in television, Dick Clark is also a member of the “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame”. Clark has gone down in history as one of the first men in media to feature black artists including the Jackson 5 and The Temptations on his television series, “American Bandstand”
Dick Clark, one of the entertainment industry’s most important player for decades, died on Wednesday (April 18th) at the age of 84 from a massive heart attack. According to Clark’s representative, Mr. Clark had already been admitted to St. John’s Hospital in LA as had just underwent an outpatient procedure the night before his death. Guess there isn’t a better place to have a heart attack then a hospital, but it just wasn’t enough to save the ailing icon. Deemed “americas oldest teenager”, Clark’s health had been on the downline since 2004 when he suffered a stroke and wasn’t able to fufill his television hosting duties at the level of excellence he had displayed his entire career. Most notably, Clark created and starred in “New Years Rockin Eve”, which requires no description. Who else was there qualified to watch do the Times Square countdown than Dick Clark?! Fast forward to 3:11 to watch Clark’s final New Years Eve Countdown, being the first one to welcome us into 2012. And 7:00 to hear Dick’s reaction to the new year.
Chatter: If you asked me a week ago what I know about Dick Clark, I would probably say (insensitively) that Dick Clark is that guy who created “Dick Clark New Year’s Rockin Eve”, and for some reason always does the countdown despite sounding like he has rocks in his mouth. I specifically remember this year, as I was watching the telecast, wondering why this orange dude (google it, he’s very “tanned” in this year’s show) still does the countdown when he can barely say the numbers. I understand it now. As a 17 year old, I guess I can’t really appreciate all that Dick Clark has done for the entertainment industry and the paths he has trailblazer. The past couple days, as with all celebrity deaths, the television news magazines have been airing stories about Clark and interviewing countless amounts of people, all reiterating Clark’s massive imprint on pop culture from the 1960′s to present. The scary thing is that I think I heard 100 times that “Nobody can fill the shoes of Dick Clark, but if anyone is a likely successor, it will be his biggest understudy Ryan Seacrest”. I hope not! Guess it’s true that you don’t really know what you got till its gone.
Are you seeing double? Good, me neither. Sorry Ryan.
