A Florida Man Chewed Off His Fingertips and Ate Them To Avoid Being Fingerprinted

In a stroke of genius, a Florida man arrested for driving a stolen Mercedes chewed off and ate his fingertips to avoid being fingerprinted by police. Despite his dedication, a fingertip scanner quickly identified Kenzo Roberts, who was also carrying a fake I.D., three fake credit cards, and a concealed firearm, WPTV reports. A security camera shows Roberts carefully chewing off the ends of his fingers, swallowing the flesh, and rubbing them against the police car’s metal caging for good [...]

Looks Like Scott Disick Really Misses Kourtney Kardashian

Scott Disick seems to learning one of life’s hard lessons: don’t take your loved ones for granted. The Lord is partaking in the ancient art of mourning your break-up on social media. Last night, Disick posted a photo of the super depressing namecard for his plus-one at a friend’s wedding. For those of you keeping track at home, it should have been the mother of his children—but she was notably absent. Disick wrote, “When u realize the grass isn’t always [...]

Leave Snoop Alone: Authorities Seize a Ton of the Doggfather’s Cash at Airport in Italy

Just days after inspiring a brief Twitter debate on the merits of drug decriminalization surrounding his bizarre detainment in Sweden following a show, Snoop Dogg is once again the victim of harsh policing tactics in international waters. Snoop was stopped by local authorities at the Lamezia Terme airport in Calabria (Southern Italy) with $422,000 in cash in tow, an amount reportedly “well above” the legal limit of $11,000 for undeclared transportation across EU borders. Per Italian anti-money laundering rules, half [...]

Compton A Soundtrack is his third studio album since The Chronic: 2001 released in 1999. Dre says he was inspired to make music again during the whole filming of Straight Outta Compton. He also gave his fans the real reason why Detox never released after all these years. “This is something you’re not gonna hear many artists say, the reason that Detox didn’t come out was because I didn’t like it,” he says. “It wasn’t good. The record, it just [...]

Watch Future’s “Kno The Meaning” Video

Fresh off earning his first #1 album ever with Dirty Sprite 2, Future just dropped off a video for the record’s second-to-last number, “Kno The Meaning.” In the visuals Future gets high in a confessional booth, which is a pretty apt representation of his whole approach to music in the first place. The video also touches on DJ Esco’s already infamous Dubai arrest from late last year that led to his spending 56 days in jail, an ordeal that spawned [...]

Eminem Opens Up About His Recovery Following 2009 Overdose

Eminem details his recovery from a 2009 overdose in a new story for the September edition of Men’s Journal. The ordeal, which also helped spawn the rapper’s 2010 release Recovery, was apparently a wake-up call about his weight as much as it was about his addiction. “In 2009, I overdosed on pills, and I went into the hospital,” he told the magazine. “I was close to 230 pounds. I’m not sure how I got so big, but I have ideas. [...]

Vin Baker Lost Most of the $100 Million He Made in the NBA, Now Works at a Starbucks

Vin Baker spent more than a decade in the NBA and was named an All-Star four times while playing for the Bucks, SuperSonics, Celtics, Knicks, Rockets, and Clippers.

New Study Suggests Heavy Social Media Use Is Hurting Teens’ Mental Health

Imagine Telly from Kids with a fucking iPhone, posting gloriously fucked up selfies and repeatedly giving adventureless puritans over the age of 40 an endless series of TL-induced heart attacks. If Telly did that shit for more than two hours a day, his propensity for eventual mental health issues would increase significantly. At least, that’s what many are taking from a new study from Ottawa Public Health, which concludes that teens who regularly “use social media sites for two hours [...]

Brazzers is #TeamDrake and Sent Some Insane Tweets at Meek Mill

The Drake vs. Meek Mill beef has completely taken over pop culture, with everyone from Brandon Jennings to Norm Kelly chiming in. Now we can add Brazzers—yes, as in the Canada-based porn production company magnate—to the list of unlikely but hilariously welcome commentators. Someone on their official Twitter account just randomly replied to Meek’s tweet addressing “Charged Up” with some rather rude Nicki Minaj shade. This is just one more instance of Canada backing The Boy, from Norm to the [...]
