It's Three for Three! The Fugees' Pras Michel Indicted for Campaign Finance Violations

One time!




- Pras Michel got that Fugees curse as he pleaded not guilty to conspiracy and falsifying records in a wealth fund that engaged in campaign finance violations.
- the wealth fund 1MDB was to promote economic development in Malaysia
- turns out some of that money was given to President Obama's re-election campaign without disclosing that the funds came from another country
- Michel apparently conspired with the Jho Low, the manager of the fund who would give large amounts of money to Michel who would then funnel the smaller amounts of money to others who would make contributions to the presidential campaign
- pleaded not guilty and will go to trial with the UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE
- follows in the footsteps of former bandmates, tax evaders Lauryn Hill and Wyclef Jean

J.J. Abrams And Jordan Peele To Donate Fees From Georgia-Shot TV Series To Fight New Abortion Bill




J.J. Abrams and Jordan Peele are the producers of new TV series “Lovecraft Country”, which will film in Georgia. The pair have pledged to donate their fees from the show to organizations fighting the bill, which will make it illegal for a woman to terminate a pregnancy once a fetal heartbeat is detected, as early as 6 weeks.

Part of thier statement via The Hollywood Reporter:

“In a few weeks we start shooting our new show, ‘Lovecraft Country’, and will do so standing shoulder to shoulder with the women of Georgia, Governor Kemp’s ‘Fetal Heartbeat’ Abortion Law is an unconstitutional effort to further restrict women and their health providers from making private medical decisions on their terms. Make no mistake, this is an attack aimed squarely and purposely at women.”

Since the bill was signed, reports THR, at least five productions companies have announced they will not film in the state until the law is overturned.

Comedian KevOnStage shares his thoughts on Twitter Poll: Do you wash your legs in the shower?



Comedian Kevin Fredericks, better known online as KevOnStage, has uploaded a video sharing his thoughts on the latest topic blowing up Twitter over the last two days. It all started on Thursday when Conor Arpwel (@Arpwel) made a Twitter Poll asking: “Do you wash your legs when you take a shower?” 81% said yes.


19% however do not and several people went into the comments to defend that decision. Several people suggested that the soapy run-off water going down their legs does a perfectly good job of keeping their legs clean without requiring them to lean down and do it themselves.

What are your thoughts?

Poll #2092668 Shower Poll

ONTD, do you wash your legs in the shower?

Yes.
400(80.6%)
Sometimes.
59(11.9%)

Jeffree Star Sides with Tati Westbrook in Public Spat with James Charles



Jeffree Star has congratulated bff Tati Westbrook on gaining new followers and posted a picture of them side by side. The gesture would be negligible if Tati weren't currently gaining followers for one only reason: calling out former protege James Charles for being a sexual predator and for advertising a competing line of beauty vitamins. (lmao... what a world we live in)

As of this moment, James Charles has lost almost a million subscribers, while Tati Westbrook has gained 700.000 subscribers. In an effort to stop hemorrhaging and save face, JC was caught buying a bulk of 20.000 subscribers yesterday. He apologized to Tati for his behavior while remaining completely unapologetic about sexually harassing men.


Update: James Charles has now officially lost a million subscribers (6% of his overall count).

Elon Musk Will Go to Trial in Defamation Suit with Rescue Diver




- This has nothing to do with, c, The Artist Formerly Known as Grimes or Perdue Factory employee Azealia Banks and them being subpoenaed
- Musk made an accusatory, defamatory tweet about rescue diver Vernon Unsworth who dismissed Musk's idea of using a submarine
- Musk called the man a 'pedo' and Unsworth quickly hired lawyers for Musk to retract his statment
- Well Elon Musty did not and Unsworth filed a defamation suit against the Tesla CEO who has had to deal with other legal troubles such as having to answer to the SEC, being sued by shareholders and Tesla's dropping stock
- Musk is trying to get the suit dismissed because he thought his insult on the internet was protected from legal action by the First Amendment(How Sway!?!?!?!?) but the judge set the trial for October 22 in Los Angeles
- Unsworth is seeking $75K in damages

Detective Pikachu beats Endgame at the Friday box office



With a $150 million-budget, Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, topped the Friday box office, earning $20.7 million, that includes $5.7 million in Thursday previews. Having the best Thursday preview gross and the best Friday/opening day gross for any video game flick ever.

Numbers for the whole weekend are still undetermined. While the reviews were generally positive (it’s the first video game movie to score a “fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes), it still garnered some negative ones, possibly due to older moviegoers not convinced to indulge in a Pokémon movie.

This is still a strong result for a film that may become the biggest video game flick ever. It’s on par (relatively speaking) with the $50 million debut of The Great Gatsby in 2013 and the $48 million launch of Troy on this same weekend in 2004.

James Charles' History of Predatory Behavior, Plus: his Subscriber Count is in Free Fall



That episode with Shawn Mendes

james-charles-shawn-mendes


In 2018, Shawn started a live stream on Instagram to show off his juggling skills. James popped into the stream and wrote, "Can u juggle me like that." After he left his comment, Shawn ended the live stream, which has made fans believe that James made him uncomfortable.

Another fan confirmed this theory, after revealing that they attending a secret session with Shawn, who supposedly said he sees James' comments all the time and doesn't like the "weird sh*t" he writes on his page constantly.

After hearing the news, James took to Twitter to apologize and explain himself, which led to Shawn apologizing to HIM. Collapse )

In little over a day, James Charles has lost 1.6 million subscribers on Youtube (10% of his overall count).

James Charles' subscriber count has been falling by several thousand since he made his tone-deaf comments about the MET gala, but they're in an unprecedented freefall since Tati released her video yesterday.


Annoyingly, the attention around his and Tati's drama means that he earned more TODAY than some people make in a year.

ONTD Original: Seven Awesome RPGs Soundtracks That Isn't Final Fantasy

It is my birthday, ONTD.  So, my gift to ONTD is another orginal.  On every list from here and back again, you find Final Fantasy on it.  While I do enjoy and own some of their sountracks (FF9 soundtrack is my favorite...fight me, ONTD), I thought of doing something a little different.  I tried to add a few popular titles to where in the world did you play that game, Mouse?!

Persona 5
Favorite Track:  River In The Desert
OP's note:  This was actually hard for me since I own Persona 3-5 soundtracks.  Altus bring it each time with each game.  I adore each soundtracks.  Persona 3's Mass Destruction and Persona 4's Reach Out to Truth are my favorite those games.  So, I went with the one that I most jam too.  So, Persona 5 wins

What is your favorite soundtrack?
