49 Bags Of Heroin, Prescription Drugs And 20 Syringes Found In Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Apartment

Philip Seymour Hoffman

According to law enforcement sources, actor-Philip Seymour Hoffman,46, had close to 50 bags of heroin inside his Manhattan apartment when he died and more than 20 used syringes.

Hoffman was found dead on Sunday on the bathroom floor with a needle sticking out of his arm…

The police have therefore launched a city-wide search to catch his drug dealer.

The stark reality of Hoffman’s struggle with relapse into addiction were apparently confirmed by his estranged partner, Mimi O’Donnell – who told police that the actor appeared high when she saw him the day before he died.

Just last year, Hoffman told celebrity news website TMZ that he had sought treatment for drug abuse—adding that, he had used prescription drugs, and briefly heroin, before seeking help.

But with this revelation, it seems Hoffman never told a full story about his level of addiction.

Hoffman has over 60 film credits to his name, including Magnolia and The Master with director Paul Thomas Anderson, for which he was nominated for a best supporting actor Oscar.

Rutgers University Is Offering a Course On Beyonce Called Politicizing Beyonce

Beyonce-HM2

I cannot make any sense out of this but then, Georgetown University already has a class called “The Sociology of Hip-Hop: The Urban Theodicy of Jay-Z,” which focuses on Beyoncé’s rapper husband.

Following the above, Rutgers University has decided to offer a course on the study of Beyonce, who is one of the world’s most scrutinized pop stars…

The Department of Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers University is offering a course called “Politicizing Beyonce.”

Kevin Allred, a doctoral student who is teaching the class, tells the university’s online news site that he is using Beyonce’s career as a way to explore American race, gender and sexual politics.

The class supplements an analysis of Beyonce’s videos and lyrics with readings from Black feminists. Allred says he’s seeking to help students think more critically about media consumption.

New Music Video: ‘Same Girl’ By Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer-Lopez-Same-Girl

Jennifer Lopez wants her fans to know she is still the Queen of the streets. In her new music video for the song-Same Girl, J.Lo takes her fans back to her old hood…

In the video, Jennifer Lopez takes us on a visual tour to life those days, kicking it in her old stomping grounds, while rocking a fitted, and even rides the trains just as she did before she acquired mega success.

This is what she had to say about the video;

This was probably the craziest thing I’ve done in my career of music and movies. I called my girlfriends and some photographer friends. We just grabbed a camera, jumped on the train, left the city, and ran around the Bronx. We found some interesting places that captured the essence of what it was like to live there and made me remember the simplicity of the life I used to have there. The rest was real life.[...]I like just being able to do things spontaneously, and not having everything so planned out. I understand why people like doing it, because it’s fun. And it’s creative and it’s spontaneous, which is what art should be.”

She added;

It’s important to know where you’re from so you can see where you are going.

Oscar Nominee Has Been Disqualified!

Alone Yet Alone

The Academy’s board of governors have voted to rescind the original song nomination for ‘Alone Yet Not Alone’, music by Bruce Broughton and lyric by Dennis Spiegel. And have said an additional nominee in the category will not be named.

The disqualification comes as a result of  the discovery that Broughton, a former governor and current music branch executive committee member, had emailed members of the branch to make them aware of his submission during the nominations voting period.

“I’m devastated,” Broughton told Variety. “I indulged in the simplest, lamest, grass-roots campaign and it went against me when the song started getting attention. I got taken down by competition that had months of promotion and advertising behind them.” Read more

(Photo: Tiny via Instagram)

It seems the over 14 years relationship rapper-T.I. has built with his wife-Tiny is ended, or will end soon…

Tiny who has been there for T.I even during his 3 jail terms and a mother of their six kids must be tired and thinks the only way she will be happy is to seek out…

Over the weekend, the Internet started flying with rumors that the couple are headed for divorce, after the couple posted series of split suggestive messages on their instagram pages.

T.I. posted;

Dis da 1st day of da  rest of my life!!!! IG in da last 24hrs my life has changed!!!! No details necessary…. Just try to accept da change. Cuz it IS upon us. But if u CANT…Den it’s #F-CKwhoever #ImwitWHATEVA…. From now on. And that’s #OnDoeB #OnPhil it’s #Hustegangovererrrrthang #god #Children #ThatCheck IN THAT ORDER!!!!!

Tiny then later posted this;

“These n-ggas be acting up & these B’s be letting em! True Story… My fav song right now!!!! So what you saying hoe!”

Luckily, before things could get completely out of hand, Shekinah (Tiny’s BFF and hairstylist) took to Instagram in an attempt to put out the fire. She posted:

People stop with the BS @majorgirl and @troubleman31 are good!!! (They are still together) Don’t believe everything you hear!!!!! Don’t believe the hype!!!!

According to Bossip, a tipster has said; T.I is being hustled out of his marriage by a side chick….
Allegedly, over the years, Tip has become very insecure about the comments that people make on social media about Tiny’s physical features. According to this “insider”, Troubleman felt “pity” for Tiny and felt an obligation to stay with her since she has always been his ride-or-die chick.

The tipster goes on to say that T.I. has side pieces in both ATL and Los Angeles who he “sponsors”. To make matters worse, Tiny caught wind of Tip’s ATL boo through her loud mouth BFF, Shekinah! The two are said to have met about a year ago and have engaging in all kinds of raunchy shenanigans on the regular.

Now, the girl is said to be pregnant and the isht has hit the fan in the Harris household!

Songstress-India Arie Says The Grammy Awards Purposely Exclude Young Black People And Gives No Shine To Their Craft

India Arie

According to songstress-India Arie, the Grammy Awards purposely exclude young black people and gives no shine to their craft.

Joining the many India who were in disagreement with the fact uber-talented hip hop lyricist Kendrick Lamar failed to take home any Grammys over the weekend, the songstress had this to say;

Though it’s called “Music industries biggest night” the #Grammys are NOT about the music, it’s a popularity contest. The voting process allows people, to vote on name recognition alone – the music industry politics is a whole NUTHER conversation. Too much to go into here.

The American Music Awards is a show that awards sales and popularity – the #Grammys are SAID to be about the music.

If the hip hop community voted on hip hop – r&b COMMUNITY the same – same for each category – we’d see winners that reflect the MUSIC ITSELF. We all know that’s just not the way it goes.

She continued;

NOW the BIGGER losers, are ALL of black music. Where was the black music community represented in last nights #Grammy show? Performers and Winners (or not) … Where were the black artists?

And this isn’t the first time the #Grammy’s has had a show all but excluding young black America and black artists in general, although we set the worlds musical trends. Why NOT televise the lifetime achievement awards of the Isley Brothers? SURELY they deserved to be on televised stage LAST NIGHT! While other artists were on stage TWICE?

The truth is in a perfect world diversity would matter, and respect would be rampant, but the TRUTH is, The #Grammys is a television show, and in THAT world ratings reign supreme. So, in general, bigger names take the stage, and sadly the biggest names often times ARE BIGGER drawn along racial lines from the release of an album. i.e. marketing dollars, and just general support. It’s unfortunate.

I don’t even get surprised any more, but, it still hits my sense of fairness, because I KNOW many of the artists who are overlooked. I LIVE in that world. We keep showing up and subjecting ourselves to the game, hoping MAYBE we’ll win. I was so HAPPY to see @Kendricklamar take that stage – because it is a FORM of winning, at LEAST, he was SEEN.

Speaking of diversity, congratulations to my PERSONAL favorite albums of the year – @I_GregoryPorter #LiquidSpirit @Realsnarkypuppy and @lalahhathaway on your win and THANK YOU! @pharrell for acting RIGHT in the presence of the greatness that is @Nilerodgers and #StevieWonder

Love to all #SoulBirdsWorldWide

@IndiaArie

P.S. No mention of Nelson Mandela at ALL? … and THIS is why we NEED the Image Awards AND the BET awards.
