Kendrick Lamar’s ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’ Got An Early Release From Interscope

And his label is PISSED

This is an odd feeling. I thought I’d be doing backflips in the living room on the day of Kendrick Lamar‘s new album release, but something tells me it wasn’t supposed to go down like this. March 23 was the originally release date for To Pimp A Butterfly, but last night Interscope released a clean version of the album on iTunes a week early. However, the head of Kendrick‘s label Top Dawg Entertainment, has taken to Twitter to let the world know he is furious about the release. Click inside for more.

Wow! Full Video Of Suge Knight’s Fatal Hit And Run Incident Has Been Released

The video graphically shows the point of impact and reimpact
Warning: Graphic Video of the Fatal Incident

Back in January we learned that rap mogul Marion Suge Knight was arrested on charges resulting from a fatal hit and run on the set of the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton that was still in filming production here in Los Angeles. Knight claims that that the hit and run was the result of self defense. Today, graphic video of the full hit and run incident has been released and … yeah … it’s pretty insane to watch. The incident was recorded on surveillance video and altho a bit censored, the video does show the points of impact when the truck Suge Knight was driving struck Cle Bone Sloan and Terry Carter — who ended up dying from his injuries. For the record, Carter‘s family asked that this video be released publicly in order to bolster the case against Suge Knight. You can watch the video in full above and then read a description of what this video shows in more detail. More »

Watch: The ‘It’s A Small World’ Ride Caught Fire In Disneyland Last Night

Fireworks to blame?

I don’t want anyone to worry or freak out but the It’s a Small World ride inside Disneyland Resort caught fire last night, likely due to a spark from the nightly fireworks show. Thankfully, the actual ride wasn’t damaged and no one was hurt thanks to the swift action of the Disneyland Fire Department but even still, the sight of flames shooting up into the sky very near a beloved attraction at Disneyland is quite disconcerting. Click below to see video of the fire last night inside Disneyland :( More »

Michelle Rodriguez Says Minorities Need To Stop Stealing White Superhero Roles

And her apology video only made it worse

Guys. There is actually a teeny bit of vomit in my throat right now. But I’m gonna go ahead and keep writing for now. With my mouth clamped shut. Okay. Michelle Rodriguez has become another celebrity to fall prey to the random, TMZ street interview. I don’t get it. Why do people open up to the TMZ “reporters”?! Don’t you know they are there for one reason—to get you to say something stupid, for which you’ll have to apologize the next day? Well, I watched the video in which Rodriguez scoffed at “minorities” in Hollywood trying to “stealing all the white superhero roles.” She actually seemed kinda drunk to me, and I was hoping that was the case—that she wasn’t serious. I even laughed, because it sounded SO ignorant. Then came the “apology” video… in which she went on to blame “minorities” for being “lazy.” OMG. I flash backed to my interview with Spike Lee (yasss), where he made it very clear that the only problem blacks in Hollywood are having is money—funding for their projects. Of which there is often none, or very little. Anyway, click inside for this ridiculous, embarrassing shit.

Cindy Crawford’s Photographer Is Threatening To Sue Over That Unretouched Photo

He says the leaked photo was a fake

A couple of weeks back Twitter went crazy over an [allegedly] unretouched photo of supermodel Cindy Crawford. Because Crawford hadn’t made a statement about it, I was a little skeptical. At the very least, I got the sense that it wasn’t an image she wanted out there, and I also thought it was odd that people were championing the photo as some kind of proof of something. I mean, we all should know by now that celebrities and all people of means have access to the best in skincare, plastic surgery, and photoshopping. I’m just not about looking at unretouched photos and saying, “Oh, cool, that makes me feel better.” We should all be feeling good about our bodies, and even though I know that’s not already, always the case, I don’t think the solution is releasing unretouched celebrity photos—especially when said celebrity doesn’t know about it. As a feminist, there’s something that bugs me about that. So I’m not surprised to hear that this story about Crawford‘s photo isn’t over—and now there’s a potential lawsuit coming.

"It’s hard to believe that any musician would do [this]"

These Unretouched Photos Of Beyoncé Prove That She Is Not ***Flawless After All

She woke up like this

Beyoncé appeared in an ad campaign for L’Oréal Paris back in 2013 for their cosmetic and hair color products. Today, a bunch of unretouched photos from her L’Oréal photoshoot have hit the Internets and are causing quite a stir among her fans and detractors alike. We all know that Beyoncé takes great pains to ensure that photos of her are Photoshopped to perfection but these unretouched photos show the world that she is a flawed human after all. The photos were released by the fansite The Beyoncé World and they have people talking. Even tho I’m sure Bey is not happy that these photos are out, I think it can be a good thing that people can see that she isn’t always perfect and that she is flawed like everyone else. I must admit, it’s a bit jarring to see the usually perfect Beyoncé looking fairly unperfect but, again, having very human flaws is reality. Beyoncé is beautiful, no matter what … flaws and all.
