Post Malone Celebrates End Of Tour By Drinking Booze At Hooters At 8:00 AM

Two months ago, Post Malone released his third studio album Hollywood’s Bleeding, a record that quickly secured the No. 1 spot on the charts. He’s watched his singles break records and in two days, the rapper’s two-month sold-out Runaway Tour concludes in California. It’s safe to say that Post has much to celebrate these days, and by the looks things, he got an early start on Monday morning.

Post was caught by a TMZ cameraman in Hollywood outside Hooters drinking beer and smoking cigarettes. The restaurant doesn’t open until 11:00 a.m., but he’d reportedly been there since eight o’clock in the morning. “We were sitting around the house and we were trying to figure out what the hell to do,” Post said. They then decided to call Hooters and after pulling a few strings, they were able to get the place opened up early.

Aside from getting drinks to “celebrate life and two shows left,” Post gave his explanation as to why only Swae Lee from Rae Sremmurd was on tour with him. The Beerbongs & Bentleys artist shared that he spends time in the studio with Swae and after the pair collaborated on “Sunflower,” it made sense for him to hit the road. There isn’t any underlying issue with Slim Jxmmi, it was just a business move and Post “connected on a personal level” with Swae. Watch his clip below.

Will.I.Am Threatened With Legal Action By Qantas For Racism Accusation

On Friday night (Nov. 15), Will.i.am live-tweeted his experience with an “overly aggressive” flight attendant. The Black Eyed Peas member was flying with Qantas from Brisbane to Sydney when the altercation occurred. A female cabin member was “beyond rude & took it to the next level by calling the police on him]” for not putting his laptop away as requested by a P.A. announcement. Will.i.am claimed that he was didn’t hear the announcement because he was using noise-cancelling headphones to make beats. Although he was initially hesitant about attributing the flight attendant’s hostility to racial discrimination, he ended up labeling her #RacistFlightAttendant in one his tweets that tagged the airline. “I don’t want to believe she (is) racist. But she has clearly aimed all her frustrations only at the people color,” he initially wrote.

The recording artist also ended up tweeting out the flight attendant’s name after he was approached by police upon his arrival in Sydney. Since he exposed the woman’s identity to his 12.8 million Twitter followers and accused her racial discrimination, she may have grounds for pursuing legal action against him for defamation. A spokesperson for Qantas told CNN that the company will support its employee if Will.i.am does not retract his claim and she wishes to sue. “Absent a retraction, and if the crew member wanted to take the matter further, we’d certainly be willing to provide legal support for them to do this,” said the spokesperson. 

Will.i.am defended his choice to share the flight attendant’s name in response to criticism from some Twitter users. “I don’t regret my actions taking to public to speak for the other for those who don’t have the voice who felt the same disrespect,” he wrote. “I am saddened that People chose to spread hate and attack… there were other people on the flight were disrespected.” He also called out a double-standard that could be at play in shaming celebrities for publicly naming those who wrong them. “If I did something wrong….or if I was the slightest bit rude to a FAN or a journalist during work, I would be publicly named…this is what Twitter is for…we are supposed to call out wrong doings so we can have a safer more compassionate world.”

Dwight Howard Reacts To Seeing Kobe Bryant At Recent Lakers Game

Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant weren’t exactly the best teammates back in 2012-2013 and it was always pretty obvious to basketball fans. Back in those days, the Lakers were beginning their recent run struggles and they couldn’t seem to catch a break. Eventually, Howard was ousted from Los Angeles and he ended up in Houston. It was believed that 2012 was the beginning the end for Howard but now that he’s back on the Lakers, he has had a bit a career resurgence.

Last night, the Lakers took on the Atlanta Hawks and Kobe Bryant was sitting courtside. Prior to the game, Kobe and Dwight linked up for a small conversation and after the game, Howard spoke about the experience.

“I didn’t even know who it was. He slapped me on the neck and I was about to elbow him. Then he said, ‘What’s up, man. You’re playing good.’ It was cool, man. I was glad he came to the game,” Dwight said according to Mark Medina USA Today.

Seeing these two squash their beef has been quite surreal for Lakers fans and if Howard keeps playing at a high level, even more, praise is on its way. Even if you’re not a fan Howard, you can’t help but be happy for him as he attempts to repaint the narratives surrounding his career.

Married Man Kills Girlfriend & Pretends To Be Her Through Text Messages

There are truly some sick people in the world. According to BuzzFeed Newsa Pennsylvania resident who allegedly kidnapped his girlfriend and impersonated her while conversing with her family and friends has been arrested. John Matthew Chapman was charged with kidnapping, obstructing administration law, and criminal use a communication facility in connection with the disappearance his girlfriend, Jaime Rae Feden, according to a police statement.

The report claims that Chapman confessed to driving Feden from Bethel Park, a suburb Pittsburgh, to Las Vegas for a trip he told her was a vacation with the “potential acquiring residence.” Police stated that Chapman confessed to later zip-tying Feden’s hands and feet to a signpost in the desert before duct-taping her nose and mouth which suffocated her. Bethel Park Police Chief Timothy O’Connor told BuzzFeed News that during his interview with police, Chapman said he killed Feden in Nevada.

Feden was reported missing Thursday by her family, who claimed that they hadn’t seen her since September 15. During a welfare check Feden’s home that same day, crime scene investigators discovered her phone and a backpack with plastic zip ties and duct tape inside, according to CBS 2. “She was a nice girl, very low-key, not hyper or anything,” one Feden’s neighbors told CBS 2. “She just wanted to be friendly with people.” The criminal complaint identifies Chapman as Feden’s boyfriend and says she had a “tumultuous” relationship with him. “A couple other neighbors in our building said they heard arguing at different times, but I never experienced it first hand but he was a little odd,” neighbor Lane Clark said.

Chapman’s Facebook bio reads, “I’m a 39-year-old single guy from Pennsylvania. I’ve lived here most my life. I’m always trying to meet new and interesting people.” However, local news WXPI reported that Chapman wasn’t single, and has been married for about a year. His wife, Maureen Chapman, found out about her husband’s “double life” and Feden’s alleged killing in a call from police Friday morning.

Joe Rogan & Malcolm Gladwell Talk Sandra Bland, Blackout Drinking & Mind Reading

“Joe Rogan Experience” is one the most beloved podcasts amongst the increasingly vast sea podcasts. Evidence this is the fact that his latest episode has garnered over one million views on YouTube in just four days. However, many these viewers likely tuned in to hear the fascinating bestselling author, Malcolm Gladwell, speak for almost three hours.

Gladwell hosts his own popular podcast, “Revisionist History”, and recently released a new book, Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don’t Know, but his discussion with Rogan was not focused on promotional interests. His book did serve as a launching point into the topic Sandra Bland’s death. Gladwell analyses her encounter with police ficer, Brian Encinia, in 2015, as an instance deep misreading. He unpacks the details Bland’s case and proposes the interpretation that she committed suicide, in contrast to the suspicions that she was mistreated by ficials while in custody. “She had a history this bullshit stuff with cops,” Gladwell says. “The same trap that many poor people in this country get into, which is the police use people as an ATM. They set them up on tril things and, when they can’t pay the fine, they get another fine. She was part that trap… There’s a scenario where you can see that she just began to despair… I think it’s almost more tragic that she committed suicide.”

The theme misreading manifested in another form when Rogan shared his conviction that mind reading will be a development in the not-too-distant future that will totally shift our world. He believes it will “eliminate a lot the bullshit communication.” In response, Gladwell raises an interesting point. “Wouldn’t your worry be that, if we’re able to read someone’s thoughts and intentions, what we would in fact discover is even more confusing than what we know now?, he asked. “In other words, maybe what’s in my head right now are 35 different thoughts and intentions warring with each other.”

The conversation later transitioned to the dangers alcohol and the absurdity  its consumption being more socially acceptable than marijuana. Rogan and Gladwell compare drinking habits in different demographics, touching on the prevalence on university campuses drinking to the point blacking out. Gladwell shared some anatomical information about excessive drinking, which fascinates him so much that he dedicated a chapter in his new book to discussing it. “A crucial point about blackout which is that your hippocampus doesn’t necessarily control how articulate you are or how fluid your speech is – it’s just about memory,” he said.

The movie is set in the 1980s in “Da People’s Republic Brooklyn,” and follows Juliet’s cousin Tybalt and his crew as they attempt to own their rival crew, the Montagues.

Apple Music Releases ‘Dr. Dre’s 2001: The Making of a Classic’ Documentary

Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine have pulled back the curtain on the timeless album 2001. In a sit-down interview with Apple Music, the Beats co-founders reflect on the process behind its creation, including hits such as “Forget About Dre” and “Still D.R.E.”

Noting The Chronic – Dre’s iconic debut – was a concept album, Iovine poses the question, “What were you thinking when you made 2001?” Dre then delves into detail, saying the approach was similar in that he didn’t want to feature himself too strongly.

“I’m trying to put myself in the studio with a bunch of great artists, as far as the microphone work goes,” he says. “I’m trying to just get on a song or two, here and there. My first album, The Chronic, and the 2001 album, I believe I might be on (only) like four or five songs.”

He continues: “I didn’t want to appear on the album at all. To be honest, I just wanted to find artists and produce them. The D.O.C. talked me into getting on the mic.”

While 2001 was an exercise in starting over with a fresh group of artists for Dre – like he did with with The Chronic – he highlights how Iovine made the difference the second time round, specifically when picking the lead single.

Dre says they were already celebrating wrapping up the album, when Iovine stepped in saying, “You need one more song.” Iovine wasn’t satisfied with Dre’s idea to push “The Next Episode” as the first single, despite being a fan of it.

“It was a great song,” he said. “I just felt the album needed something coming out from a different way. He added that he felt, “that’s great, but we can do something better and different.” Dre gave another nod to Iovine’s touch for executive oversight, saying, “again, he was right about it.”

Dre also emphasizes the instrumental role of his protégé Eminem in making the album, describing him as “the missing link.”

“He was hungry. I was hungry,” he says. “And it was just like that, you know, spontaneous combustion. We just clicked, and that just brought everybody and everything together that was happening at that time.”

He continues, “Then we found out what we were doing, it really works. And that’s all we really needed. It’s like, OK, the Slim Shady LP, they really like that. Now that we know that it works, wait ’til they hear this.”

Instagram Will Begin Hiding Like Counts Globally

Last week, it was reported that Instagram would begin hiding “like counts” starting this week in the US, but according to Tech Crunch, that has now expanded to a global change.

“Starting today, we’re expanding our test private like counts to the rest the world beyond Australia, Brazil, Canada, Ireland, Italy, and New Zealand. If you’re in the test, you’ll no longer see the total number likes and views on photos and videos posted to Feed unless they’re your own. While the feedback from early testing has been positive, this is a fundamental change to Instagram, and so we’re continuing our test to learn more from our global community,” an Instagram spokesperson told Techcrunch Thursday.

A number celebrities have chimed in on the move. 

According to Rap-Up.comNicki Minaj expressed her feeling on IG live saying, “So basically no, Instagram is about to take everyone’s likes simply because they don’t want you to go f on the side, forming all sorts businesses and being able to say, ‘I get this amount likes,’ and charging brands. They want you to have to pay them. If you pay them, then that’s why we have all these ‘sponsored’ Instagram posts… They had to shuffle it real quick to let you know, you ain’t the boss.”

Cardi B has also made her feelings on the issue known.

The Game & Anderson. Paak Tear Up L.A. In “Stainless” Video

Los Angeles natives The Game and Anderson .Paak are no strangers to representing their city in their music videos. For the visuals to their latest collaborative effort “Stainless,” the pair takes viewers on a late-night drive down Sunset Boulevard.   

In the Aaron Green-directed clip, the Compton rapper seems to be deep in thought with his pistol at his side as he’s driving a custom baby blue Lamborghini that also pays tribute to the late Nipsey Hussle. Paak, on the other hand, is being driven in a sleek, red Mercedes-Benz while crooning his way through the song’s smooth chorus. The pair then meets up with the homies in a parking lot filled with souped-up sportscars and bouncing, candy-colored lowriders. The L.A. vibes in the video fit perfectly with the song as you can hear Game namedrop several notable West Coast figures like Ice Cube, Suge Knight, Dr. Dre and more.

The clip also features a bit of nostalgia from The Game’s earlier years. The superstar gives a nod to his first two albums The Documentary and Doctor’s Advocate with a scene that features him recreating the album covers by rapping while sitting on top of two gold-plated rims. 

The Big Duke-produced song will be featured on Game’s forthcoming album Born 2 Rap which is expected to drop on November 29. Check out the video above.
