1. Chris Brown and Lil Wayne are being investigated for potential ties to drug dealer.
Am I surprised that Chris Brown is possibly involved in something sketchy? No, the answer is no. Chris' whole life is sketch city - from beating women to setting up professional fights with other rappers in different countries
- it looks like Chris' crime-ridden roller coaster is a never-ending ride, yet people still somehow love him. And now he, along with rapper Lil Wayne, is being investigated by the feds for being connected to a drug dealer. Honestly, this seems underwhelming compared to his past, uh, "achievements."
The drug dealer they're associated with is named Harrison Garcia and he refers to himself as the "CEO of Purple Drank," while his very own defense lawyer refers to him as a "27-year-old schmuck." His Instagram
is private now, but apparently it has a lot of pictures of the dealer posing with guns, cars, celebs, and cash - let's be real though, his Insta bio is enough to prove that he is indeed, a schmuck. He's currently awaiting trial in Miami for selling marijuana, lean, and Xanax.
So where do Chris and Lil Wayne come in? Apparently while Garcia's potential deals were being investigated, they found the rappers' associations via his text messages.
The Miami Herald
Then jurors got to see evidence of Lil Wayne - whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter - and Brown's involvement in the form of text messages seized from Garcia's phones.
The messages appeared to show Garcia directing his "do-boy" to deliver drugs to Lil Wayne and his crew. "I'll shoot u some trees," one message read, a reference to marijuana. "It's for Wayne," Garcia allegedly responded via text.
The text message about Brown was more explicit. Garcia sent a bragging text message to a woman of a screen shot of the $15,000 bank deposit from "Christopher Brown" into his account.
"Look who put money my account," Garcia wrote.
The woman responded: "What that for LOL"
Garcia replied with several smiley face emojis: "Drugs ... lean and shit."
According to Jezebel
, "a federal agent testified that Garcia confessed to selling Wayne 'a lot of narcotics' when he was arrested in October," and "If Garcia is convicted on the five federal charges he's accused of, he faces up to life in prison." Honestly, I just want to know who spends $15,000 on drugs. You don't need that much. Plus, there are so many cooler things to buy - like Rihanna's Puma shoes
2. Coachella and Kate Bush: DO THEY OR DO THEY NOT WANT EACH OTHER?
It all started a few days ago when Paul Tollett, the CEO of Coachella promoter Goldenvoice, was quoted in a feature in the New Yorker
saying "No! No one is going to understand it
," when asked about booking Kate Bush for Coachella. Naturally, people freaked out; after all, it would have been Bush's first US show ever and her 22-night run in London in 2014 was completely sold out. Then, Bush's spokesperson responded on her behalf, saying she had no discussions about playing the festival
(yes, it's not over), Tollett came back basically saying "No babe, I DO want you! I'm sorry you're feeling unloved and underappreciated. Please come back!"
Maybe now Bush will fire back saying something along the lines of, "Nah, ya'll are ungrateful, spreadin' fibs 'n' shit. I don't need this."
Personally, I'd choose Kate Bush over Lady Gaga, but she's also way too cool for that crowd. I could see her doing something similar to LCD Soundsystem where she has some super top secret, cell phone-less residency for all of the Williamsburg hipsters at Brooklyn Steel.
3. Rihanna and Drake awkwardly, possibly reunited at a child's birthday party.
Is it even a kids party anymore once RiRi and Drizzy walk in, tho? That's what the Snapchat video, which was captured by a mutual friend, read while it showed the two chilling at some innocent family party (separately, of course):
You can tell RiRi just wants to jump in the ball pit, and Drake is looking more emotional than ever as he sulks on the floor in the corner, creepily watching the children. Was it awkward? Did the two talk for the first time since they broke up for the one thousandth time last year? Did they get drunk on apple sauce shots together? (Apple sauce shots? I don't know, I just made that up. I'm sure the kids are drinking anything these days.) And I'm sure Drake went home later that night and wrote about it in his diary. I guess the only thing that could have made it even more awkward (and even more funny) is if Nicki Minaj decided to attend as well. Then we'd get to see Drake caught in between two
exes, and the kids would probably think her butt is some weird part of the bounce house. Too far? Too far. Noted.
