Rapper Snoop Dogg risked arrest by smoking weed in a bathroom at the White House.
The hip-hop star has revealed he defied the security team at the U.S. president's official residence to light up a joint during a bathroom break.
During an installment of his YouTube.com web series Double G News Network featuring an appearance by Jimmy Kimmel, the late night talk show host asked the rapper, "Have you ever smoked (weed) in the White House?"
Snoop Dogg replied, "In the bathroom... not in the White House, but in the bathroom. Cos (sic) I said, 'May I use the bathroom for a second?' and they (the security team) said, 'What do you want to do a number one or number two?' And I said 'number two'... So I said when I do a number two I usually have a cigarette or I light something to get the aroma right and they said,'You know what, you can light a piece of napkin' and I said 'I'll do that' and the napkin was this (weed)."
Kaiser Chiefs rocker Ricky Wilson was baffled by rumours the band would end when drummer Nick Hodgson quit, insisting reports he penned all their hits are not true. Hodgson announced in December, 2012 that he was leaving the I Predict a Riot hitmakers to focus on other projects, and the news was followed with various reports crediting the percussionist with writing the band's songs.
However, frontman Wilson is still annoyed by the incident as he is adamant the whole group takes part in the songwriting process and they can easily cope without Hodgson.
He tells Q magazine, "Nick left and that was the s**test thing ever. He wrote all the f**king songs. You kept reminding us that he wrote all the f**king songs cos (sic) every article that was written reminded us that Nick Hodgson was the songwriter. He was the songwriter. Song, song, song, writer, writer, writer, Nick, Nick, Nick! It's not true. Kaiser Chiefs wrote the songs."
Hodgson was replaced in the line-up by Vijay Mistry.
Susan Sarandon's pet dog left U.S. chat show host Chelsea Handler with a reminder of the actress' most recent visit by peeing on the host's studio rug. The Oscar winner decided to introduce little Penny to Handler during a recent taped appearance on her late-night show Chelsea Lately and kicked off the chat by ordering her pooch not to relieve herself during the programme.
But Penny picked up the scent of another dog and had to go.
As cameras caught the dog peeing, Sarandon said, "No, no, no..." but Handler laughed off the leak, joking, "That's OK, let her pee. We're leaving soon anyway."
Handler is departing her E! show to embark on a new web chat series.
Shocked Sarandon added, "This is the first show that she's urinated on, 'cos she just did Letterman... She obviously feels very much at home here."
Rock wildman Shane Macgowan once sold Paul Weller a tramp's old T-shirt for $850 (£500). The Pogues frontman was a familiar face on the U.K. punk scene in the 1970s before finding fame, and he was the proud owner of an authentic, vintage Union Jack printed top.
He knew clothes-obsessed The Jam frontman Weller would want the garment as soon as he saw it, so he wore it to several concerts - and Weller eventually paid him a huge sum for it.
MacGowan tells Uncut magazine, "Mine was a real Carnaby Street '67 job. I wore it to all The Jam gigs, 'cos I knew Paul Weller would crack sooner or later and give me a ridiculous amount of money for it. He offered me a Rickenbacker (guitar). I said, 'No, I couldn't part with it.'
"I'd got it from this old tramp. I was trying to get the most I could, and eventually he offered me £500. I said, 'You're done!' Half a grand for a f**king mod shirt!"
Pop star Lily Allen crowned her musical comeback with a bizarre performance at Britain's Glastonbury festival on Friday (27Jun14), singing while surrounded by giant baby bottles as her husband and children watched from the side of the stage. The Smile hitmaker stepped out of the spotlight in 2010 to concentrate on starting a family with her husband Sam Cooper, and she relaunched her career this year (2014).
She showed off her quirky side at Glastonbury by taking to a stage adorned with enormous baby milk bottles as a nod to her new role as a mum as daughters Ethel, two, and Marnie, 17 months, watched from the wings.
Allen's romance with Cooper began at the festival in 2009, and she paid tribute to her husband during her set, turning to face him and saying, "Last time I played here was five years ago and that was the night I got together with my husband. Five years later he's here with my two beautiful babies. I love y'all so much."
The singer's shortened Friday night set was delayed by 30 minutes while festival organisers waited for a lightning storm to pass.
Taking to the Pyramid Stage, she said, "Thank f**k for that, the rain stopped! Just in time. I've got to be quick 'cos our set time has been cut short."
Kasabian rocker Serge Pizzorno fears rioting will break out in his hometown when the British rockers perform a hotly-anticipated 10th anniversary show in the city next month (Jun14). The Fire hitmakers will celebrate their 10 years in music with the special gig at Victoria Park in Leicester, England on 21 June (14).
The concert will mark a decade since the band released its self-titled debut album in 2004, and guitarist Pizzorno fears fans will be whipped into such a frenzy by the occasion that they will need to let off steam afterwards with a destructive rampage.
He tells rock magazine Q, "God bless the council. I don't think they realise the city centre's gonna be a war zone. Cos we're gonna just rally this crowd into such a frenzy and then go, 'Right, that was it.' And everyone's gonna go, 'What next? Riot!' I hope it's a love-in. That's what I'm praying for."
"I don't think I've ever sold records based on my looks, which is positive, cos (sic) it means that even if I do become a fat slob when I'm older, it won't matter." British pop star Ed Sheeran is happy he's not a hunk.
British rapper Wiley has lashed out at immigration officials in Canada after he was deported from the country before a show in Toronto on Wednesday (02Apr14). The Heatwave hitmaker, 35, was en route to the city to perform at The Hoxton venue when he was stopped by Canadian border authorities amid concerns of a criminal history in the U.S.
Wiley told customs officials he had never run into legal trouble in America, but it wasn't enough to get him into the country.
In a series of posts on Twitter.com on Wednesday night, he wrote, "Immigration have got me and are sending me back to london .....Sad story. TELLING ME I HAVE A CRIMINAL RECORD IN AMERICA .......WHAT ARE THE (they) SAYING ...I HAVE NEVER BEEN ARRESTED IN AMERICA B4 (before). I am not even angry this is the 3rd time in life i have been denied from a place ...for nothing cos i have never been to jail in my life (sic)."
But Wiley's troubles only got worse after the London-based star learned he was being put on a plane to Glasgow, Scotland instead of one to the British capital.
He later tweeted, "OMG (oh my god) IMMIGRATION ARE SENDING ME BACK TO SCOTLAND WTF (what the f**k) ......CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS... GLASGOW......WTF ...HE SAID I CAN CAN FIND MY WAY TO ENGLAND FROM GLASGOW....WHAT A P**CK...
"Anyway en route to scotland F**KIN ELL .......trek (sic)".
The deportation is the latest drama in Wiley's life - he recently announced he was scrapping his new album, Snakes And Ladders, because he was unimpressed by his own work.
Model Reeva Steenkamp told boyfriend Oscar Pistorius she was "scared" of his short temper in multiple text messages weeks before she was shot to death by the Paralympian, a South African court has heard. The sportsman is currently on trial, accused of murdering Steenkamp in the bathroom of his home in Pretoria last year (Feb13).
He has denied one charge of murder and three firearms offences, insisting he mistook the South African beauty for an intruder and opened fire, but police detectives have now uncovered a number of exchanges between Steenkamp and Pistorius, documenting her fears about the athlete's bad temper.
In one message, read out in court on Monday (24Mar14) by police captain Francois Moller, she wrote, "I'm scared of u sometimes and how u snap at me and of how u (sic) will react to me".
Another text read, "I can't be attacked by outsiders for dating u AND be attacked by you, the one person I deserve protection from", while she also wrote, "You make me happy 90 percent (sic) of the time and I think we are amazing together... I just want to love and be loved. Be happy and make someone SO happy. Maybe we can't do that for each other. Cos right now I know u aren't happy and I am certainly very unhappy and sad (sic)."
Despite the worrying messages, Captain Moller claimed that of the more than 1,000 messages discovered by cops, about 90 per cent of the conversations were normal and "loving" exchanges.
The trial continues.
Rapper The Game previously romanced reality TV star Kim Kardashian by taking her on an outing to McDonald's. The rapper was falsely linked to Kardashian's sister Khloe last year (13), and after denying those rumours, he has now admitted he once dated Kim.
The Game - real name Jayceon Taylor - tells British radio station BBC Radio 1xtra, "It's funny man cos (sic) me and Khloe we're cool. People don't know, but I've been knowing (sic) Khloe for 12 years - you know what I'm saying? I went and dated Kim for a while. A little short while."
When pressed about his dating history with Kim, he adds, "A little bit. A long time ago... You know what it was. We went to McDonald's twice. Pulled up in a drive through."
Kim is now engaged to rapper Kanye West and the couple is parents an eight-month-old daughter.
