I have so many questions, just by the title alone. Why is Snoop Dogg in Norway in the first place? And how is he still getting busted with weed? Any why is he even taking it out of the U.S., especially since a lot of other countries aren’t very lenient on it? Who knows, but according to MSN Snoop was busted at the airport with weed and a large amount of cash.
Apparently, Snoop was on his way to Kristiansand for a music festival when he was stopped at the airport. Seems as though a sniffer-dog found the small amount of weed on him. According to Norwegian law, they cannot name the suspect specifically but an “American artist” on his way to a music festival that was busted with weed kind of narrows the playing field. I think he got off pretty easy though…
It’s still a bit unbelievable that Whitney Houston has passed away. Nonetheless, her music continues to live on. Before her passing, Whitney recorded a song with singer and co-star Jordin Sparks for their upcoming movie Sparkle called Celebrate. According to BET, the cast decided to use this opportunity to create a tribute video for Whitney.
When we did the song, we planned on it being Whitney and me, but she’s not here, so we wanted to make it a tribute to her. So it’s fun, upbeat and exciting — there are clips from the movie and the main cast is in the video, too. It’s me, Tika Sumpter, Carmen Ejogo, Derek Luke, Omari Hardwick, Goapele is in it andMike Epps. We’re all just having a good time [and the premise is] they all come over to my house singing along to Whitney’s music. And we’re missing her and celebrating her as well. It’s actually pretty simple, but when you watch it and hear her voice along with it, it makes it so much more.
I like the song. It’s classic Whitney and I could totally imagine her doing her legendary shoulder shrug to it. Check out the video below:
Carmelo Anthony can now be at two places at one time. The NBA star gets a wax statue at the Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in New York City. LaLa Anthony and their son Kiyan Anthony both attend the unveiling.
