Dennis Basso Features Mary J. Blige in Ads, Provides Fur for J.Lo’s ‘Dinero’ Music Video

HE’S GOT TALENT: Dennis Basso has reason to sing, having lined up Mary J. Blige for his newest ad campaign and suited up Jennifer Lopez for the cover of her latest single.
Blige, a friend who has attended many of the designer’s fashion shows over the years, was the right choice for a number of reasons, he said. “The world of music is always strong, but it seems stronger than ever. She’s a modern-day woman, extremely talented, very beautiful and she represents a powerful woman,” Basso said. “I just like who she is and what she stands for. Being part of the music industry is also exciting.”
“Very involved with orchestrating the feeling and the look” of the shoot, the designer was on location when Bernard Hunt photographed Blige for the new campaign. “For someone who performs in front of tens of thousands of people, it was very cute to see her focused on getting it right. She was not Mary J. the singer. She was Mary J. the singer, who is now the high fashion model,” Basso said. “She is a very kind, humble woman. I like that about her.”
Blige, who just released a new single “Only Love,” was photographed wearing

Tragic: Husband Finds Wife and Her Mechanic Lover Both Dead from Carbon Monoxide Poisoning After They Had Sex in the Garage [Video]

A New Jersey man came home Monday night to find both his wife and her lover dead in the garage.

The two died of carbon monoxide poisoning while having sex.

via People:

Kahali Johnson said he returned home that night and smelled a strong odor coming from the garage of his apartment, according to WABC. So, he went to investigate, WABC reported.

In the garage, Johnson said he found his wife, Tameka Hargrave, and their mechanic near a running vehicle.

“As I tried to step to open the last garage door, I see the mechanic, he’s laid out,” Johnson told the station. “She’s just a few feet away, she’s laid out. And pretty much I had to call 911 because, at this time, with that level of emissions, I knew that they were gone.”

Sources told KXAS that Hargrave, 39, and the unnamed mechanic, 59, were allegedly having sex in the car when they succumbed to carbon monoxide poisoning. Law enforcement sources reportedly told the station that Hargrave had allegedly been having sex with the mechanic in exchange for his car work.

The Newark Police Department did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene and police said the deaths appeared to be accidental, NJ.com reported. Newark Fire Division evacuated the building, and one person was taken to a local hospital, according to the publication.

As for Johnson, the grieving husband told WABC that he blames the apartment complex.

“Basically she died because of carbon monoxide,” Johnson said. “They do not have adequate alarm systems, because if there had been an alarm in that garage, people would have been alerted to the fact that it was going on.”

Sad.

Selena Gomez’s Mom Shares Video of the Singer as a Sassy 5-Year-Old: ‘Why Do They Grow Up?’

Selena Gomez‘s mother, Mandy Teefey, just shared a major throwback from the “Wolves” singer’s childhood.

Teefey, 42, shared an adorable video of the pop star, 25, from 1997 when the singer was just 5 years old. In the video, Gomez, wearing two pigtails, is seen showing off her sass as she talked to her mother on the phone and complained about homework.

@selenagomez talking to me on the phone when I was at work asking about her day at school,” Teefey wrote in the caption. “My sassy, independent, boss lady, adorable gigantic piece of my heart, first born love.”

“Gracie is exactly like this. Diabolical. XO,” the mother of two continued, referring to her second daughter, 5-year-old Gracie Elliot. “My girls are born leaders. Why do they grow up? Her sweet little eyes and massive eyelashes.”

In the footage, Gomez tells her mother about a homework assignment she had to do again at her teacher’s request.

“My teacher said I gotta do all this stuff again. I gotta do it by myself,” the tot said in the video. “I’m going crazy, you gotta help me over here! You better girl.”

Gomez’s father is Ricardo Joel Gomez. Teefey and Ricardo are divorced and Teffey married Brian Teefey in 2006 and shares Gracie Elliot with him.

In December, a source close to the family told PEOPLE the two had become estranged and not just because of Gomez’s then-reunion with Justin Bieber.

“It’s more complicated than just fighting over a guy,” the source said. “Mandy and Selena have had their ups and downs before. This isn’t the first time.”

While the two weren’t speaking, the insider said Gomez “also wants to give her mom some space.”

“When they fight, they fight hard,” the source said. “But when they love, they also love hard.”

Gomez reunited with Bieber last year and spent New Year’s with the “Sorry” singer in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico after she split with The Weeknd (née Abel Tesfaye) in October.

RELATED VIDEO: Selena Gomez Isn’t Currently Speaking to Mom Mandy Teefey and Wants to ‘Give Her Space’: Source

A source told PEOPLE at the time that the two were “doing great.”

Weeks later, Teefey admitted she was “not happy” about her daughter’s rekindled romance with Bieber during an interview with Gossip Cop.

She also revealed she had not spoken to Bieber in “years,” although she said she knew Gomez was old enough to “make her own choices.”

“Selena can live her life however she wants as long a she is happy, safe and healthy,” Teefey said. “She is 25-years-old and knows what is at stake with her health.”

But it seems mom knows best, as Gomez and Beiber’s relationship did not last. And now, not only has the Baby singer reunited with former-ex Hailey Baldwin, this week he proposed to her.

Tiffany Haddish Gets All Ugly Face Over Tyler Perry During Laugh Factory Routine [Video]

(Photo credit: PR Photos)

According to Anita Bennett’s UrbanHollywood411, funny woman Tiffany Haddish not only brought the house down Saturday night at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles with laughter, but ended up breaking down in tears herself.

During her set at the famous Sunset Strip comedy club, Haddish joked about being thrifty, taking a sabbatical from sex, receiving a car from Tyler Perry and being gifted the wardrobe from her upcoming film, Night School, with Kevin Hart.

Haddish warned fans they’ll see the outfits over and over, because she believes in recycling.

She also joked about her role in Perry’s upcoming comedy, Nobody’s Fool. She said the director’s rapid-fire production method caught her off guard.

“We shot that whole movie in ten days. I don’t know if it’s gone be any good,” she said to laughter.

“I don’t know if this sh–’s gone be funny. I don’t know what the continuity is gonna look like,” she joked. “I don’t know if in one scene, I’m gonna have three hairdos. I don’t know.”

Then someone in the audience yelled, “Tell us about the car!”

Say What Now? Would-Be Robber Fall Throughs Convenience Store Ceiling, Gets Caught [Video]

Just because you may have seen something in an action movie, doesn’t always mean the same will work in real life.

Two would-be robbers found out the hard way.

via TMZ:

Where: Alberta, Canada
When: Earlier this week
Why: Two robbery suspects — a man and a woman — at a convenience store were attempting to flee from a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer.

Long story short … the cop busts out his taser to take down the guy. Meanwhile, his female friend tries to make a clean escape by running into the stockroom and climbing through the ceiling — y’know, ‘Mission: Impossible’ style. She almost made it. Almost.

This entire caper was captured by the store’s surveillance cameras. Thank God.

‘Bath Time!’ Chrissy Teigen Shares Adorable Video of Daughter Luna Covering Her Face in Bubbles

Chrissy Teigen‘s daughter certainly is a water baby!

Luna, 2, had fun during her bath time on Thursday night as she bathed alongside her mother, 32.

🛁,” Teigen wrote for the simple caption of a video of their water-filled adventure on Instagram.

The model couldn’t help but laugh in the video as Luna grabbed a handful of bubbles in her hands and wiped them off on Teigen’s face.

Before their dip in the black marble tub, Teigen shared a video of her daughter carrying a yellow tub of toys, which included a big rubber, yellow duck and the caption, “Bath Time!”

“Put your stuff in there!” Teigen told Luna as the little girl bent over her crate and tossed the duck inside of the bath tub.

The mom of two welcomed her second child, son Miles Theodore on May 16, with husband John Legend. Earlier this week, Teigen shared a sweet photo of her baby boy lounging on a yellow giraffe print pillow in a coordinating giraffe patterned onesie.

“Hey dudes,” Teigen captioned the photo.

The model conceived her two children through IVF, a process she told one fan in the comments section she was “all for talking about.”

“I know IVF was used for Luna was it used for baby brother also?” The follower asked her. Though other followers criticized that fan for the personal inquiry, Teigen did not shy away from talking about the process.

“I wasn’t offended by it — people are just curious and I think hearing success stories gives people hope. I’m all for talking about IVF,” the Lip Sync Battle star replied.

Teigen has been candid in the past about her and Legend’s struggle to conceive, even getting fielded with nonstop questions about starting a family since they got married in September 2013.

RELATED VIDEO: Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Share Their Son’s Name and Introduce Him in Adorable First Photo

The model previously told PEOPLE in February that she chose to undergo IVF again more than two years after choosing to implant a female embryo that resulted in the pregnancy with Luna.

“You do the whole process again to try to get as many embryos and eggs as possible,” Teigen explained of the artificial insemination. “Everyone is freezing everything. … For me, I just want to gather as many as possible. I don’t want to do this again for the rest of my life.”

In January, Teigen confirmed that she and Legend conceived Miles through IVF after she previously said “a little boy is next.”

Client Success Video: Mr. Roof

Under the ownership of Crane Renovation Group, Mr. Roof and Able Roof specialize in roof repairs and installations with a dedication to serve their homeowners with superior service, quality work, and a fair price. The award-winning company has become the largest residential roofing company in the United States, and Jim Ziminski, President of Mr. Roof, Able Roof, and Crane Renovation Group, is a veteran in the industry with more than 30 years under his tool belt.

The partnership between Crane Renovation Group and Modernize began in 2016 when Jim Ziminski sought additional revenue growth channels. Ziminski explains, “Our initial goal in working with Modernize was to create more opportunities for our sales team. We wanted to be able to reach consumers in a different way than we were able to do so on our own. Ultimately, we wanted to learn from Modernize, have Modernize learn from us and be good partners to expand our business”. Watch the video above or read the story below to hear more about our partnership with Mr. Roof.

What is your ultimate goal in working with Modernize?

“Our initial goal in working with Modernize was to create more opportunities for our sales team. I think as we’ve learned Modernize and built a relationship with Modernize, our goal was to learn faster and better by sharing information back and forth.”

How has your relationship with modernize evolved over time?

“The basis of the relationship was to build trust. Once we built that trust, it’s evolved to where we share more information and data. We love to look at research and data, Modernize does as well, and when we do that together, we’re more powerful as a unit than we are individually.”

What are some fundamental elements to the relationship?

“We are a family-oriented business. We’re owned by Crane group that’s been in business for 70 years, so the two things that are most important to us are trust and value.”

How would you have started your relationship with Modernize differently?

“At the start, we were testing the waters. I think we were too public about that with our people which led to cherry-picking the leads. The reality was that people saw that we weren’t fully committed at the beginning. Once we fully committed and we really began to look at the process, learn, and open up what we were experiencing with Modernize and saw that they wanted to hear our good and negative feedback in order to improve. People saw we were all in, we really got much better at working together and creating more value for us with the Modernize leads.”

What would be your advice for companies looking to grow with Modernize?

“Get together with your Modernize representative and share your information – They’re a very trustworthy company. Ask them to share their information – Modernize is very open. Learn from one another – that’s really the power. You’re going to learn faster if you’re working together instead of keeping them at arm’s length.”

How would you describe Modernize in one word?

“In one word, we would say value. We value the relationship.”

Say What Now? Former Trump Campaign Manager Tells Black Fox News Panelist He’s Out of His ‘Cotton-Picking Mind’ [Video]

David Bossie, a former deputy campaign manager for Donald Trump, told a Black Fox News guest he was out of his “cotton-picking mind” in the middle of a debate on rhetoric surrounding the Trump administration’s immigration policies.

via NYDN:

Bossie hurled the phrase — bringing to mind the work of slaves in the old South — at Democratic strategist Joel Payne on “Fox & Friends” Sunday morning after the two spoke about former CIA director Michael Hayden sharing a photo of Auschwitz on Twitter.

“Michael Hayden posted a picture of Auschwitz,” Bossie said, to which Payne replied, “Yeah, that liberal Michael Hayden, that screaming liberal Michael Hayden.”

Bossie then responded, “Look, you’re out of your cotton-picking mind.”

Payne was quick to reply: “Cotton-picking mind? Brother, let me tell you something. I got some relatives who picked cotton. And I’m not going to allow you to attack me like that on TV.”

Bossie responded with an incredulous, “Attack you how?” and continued to declare Payne “out of (his) mind.”

Ed Henry, a Fox News host and the discussion’s moderator, issued a statement once the show returned from a commercial break and said that while he wasn’t sure what Bossie meant by the phrase, it “clearly offended” Payne and others.

“I want to make sure that Fox News and this show, myself, we don’t agree with that particular phrase,” he said. “It was obviously offensive and these debates get fiery, that’s unfortunate. We like to have honest and spirited debates, but not phrases like that, obviously. And so I will just leave it at that.”

What is this world coming to?

Selena Gomez Fans Are Creeped Out By Naked Video of Her in Bathtub

Is there a good reason why this happened? Selena Gomez fans are freaking out over an eerie short video of her naked in a bathtub.

Canadian artist Petra Collins published the horror movie, titled “Love Story,” via Instagram on Wednesday, June 20, causing outrage among 25-year-old Gomez’s loyal following.

“I think you changed Selena. I miss Selena in 2016 and I want in 2016 and I want it back … I’m afraid,” one fan commented on the creepy clip. Added another: “This has a serial killer vibe to it!”

“I had to stop watching,” noted a scared viewer. Another frightened fan chimed in, “This is not Sel, she changed. I know everyone changes, grows up, but now Selena is half-Petra and I don’t like it (just like too many Selenators).”

The psychedelic video features the former Disney star humming while bathing in murky water. At one point, Gomez peels a human-like mask off her face, which later reappears on her back. The “Back to You” singer has yet to respond to the backlash or repost the clips on her own feed.

Gomez previously worked with Collins in July 2017 while filming a video for her track “Fetish” in which she appears to have somewhat of a meltdown in a suburban home. She also ties her tongue, bites into glass and hosts a candlelit dinner for one.

The 13 Reasons Why executive producer opened up about working with Collins in a July 2017 interview with Dazed.

“People don’t know but my personal life ties into the work we do together because [she] knows things about my life that nobody knows and I know a lot about [her] life that nobody knows,” Gomez explained. “It comes out, somehow.”

VIDEO: Frances Ruffelle Sings STILL HURTING by Jason Robert Brown

Tony Award winner Frances Ruffelle is back in town with her stunning solo performance ‘Frances Ruffelle LiveS in New York’ an intimate evening of song that whispers seductive secrets, lays bare the naked truth and explodes with the one of a kind bottle rocket charisma that’s kept ‘Frankie’s’ ardent fans coming back for more since she created the iconic role of ‘Eponine’ in ‘Les Miserables’ and turned ‘On My Own’ into one of Broadway’s most beloved standards. ‘Frances Ruffelle LiveS in New York’ is a wildly entertaining ride straight through the core of the most tender heart, fiery passion and loose comic confidence of a seasoned performer at the height of her game.

New helicopter video confirms Hawaii is basically Mordor now

Kilauea volcano hawaii eruption helicopter video

Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy relied heavily on CGI to turn Mordor into hell on Earth, complete with a lava-spewing volcano and rivers of molten stone running through a barren wasteland. The same description also applies to parts of Hawaii’s Big Island, but the lava is real, and the Kilauea volcano was happy to do the terraforming for free.

A new aerial video from the US Geological Survey, captured during a helicopter flight over the East Rift Zone on Thursday, shows the extent of the devastation caused by the ongoing eruption. The coastline ravaged by the lava flowing from Fissure 8 is about a mile long, and it’s turned into a complete wasteland. Rivers of lava continue to flow, and the rock that’s left behind is as black and charred as you’d imagine.

Meet the Black Woman Behind the Video That Led to the Trump Clemency of Alice Johnson

You may not know the name Topeka Sam as well as you know Kim Kardashian, but you should. Sam, a prison reform activist, facilitated the viral Mic video that moved Kardashian to take a meeting with President Donald Trump to plead the case of Alice Johnson, a black woman who was granted clemency June 6 after serving 21 years for a nonviolent, drug-related crime. Though Kardashian helped put a worldwide spotlight on Johnson’s case, Sam was a major leader in a community of activists, legal professionals, and entrepreneurs who worked on her behalf for years before the day she was finally freed.

Sam, a formerly incarcerated woman herself, has advocated for female inmates’ rights, prison reform, and empowerment for women through spiritual renewal, education, and entrepreneurship since her own 2015 release. “My parents were franchise business owners for the first 20 years of my life,” Sam says. “They owned a Carvel franchise in Brooklyn, N.Y., and after that, they ran their own restaurant in Harlem until they retired. I’ve always been exposed to what [owning a business looked like]. I think it was just in my DNA, that I was going to be a business owner at some point.”

The founder of The Ladies of Hope Ministries and Hope House NYC, was bitten by the entrepreneurship bug in her youth, and she has since promoted the freedom and power of entrepreneurship as a viable and sustainable option for formerly incarcerated individuals.

“Prior to going to prison, I’d launched several small businesses, [from] a concierge service to throwing parties. I started a customized mobile-phone case boutique for brands with a friend of mine, who’s still an entrepreneur,” Sam recalls. “When I was inside, God gave me the name The Ladies of Hope Ministries and Hope House. I had a business plan and everything. …I wrote out what my ideas were, like the Bible says, ‘Write it down and make it clear, and at the appointed time, it will come to pass and will not tarry.’  That’s exactly what I did.”

In launching Hope House NYC, Sam has combined entrepreneurial knowledge with her personal experience of prison life for women, and she also uses knowledge she’s gained while serving as a Columbia University Beyond the Bars fellow, a Justice in Education Scholar, and director of dignity for the Van Jones-helmed Cut50 initiative to keep the Bronx-based facility going. At the home, women and girls affected by incarceration can get educational, vocational, spiritual, and entrepreneurial resources and housing, and find a safe space of support from other women.

“It’s everyday work, not only because you’re a social entrepreneur or systems entrepreneur, [but because] you have people’s lives in your hands,” Sam says. “You have to make sure the bills are paid so that women can remain safe [at Hope House NYC] and they can thrive in their lives. I have to make sure the resources we are providing are viable.”

She takes pride in the impact she can make through starting something she is in charge of, and knows how entrepreneurship or launching your own platform can have a positive effect on lives beyond that of the business owner.

“With entrepreneurship, it allows you to hire people who have been impacted by incarceration and give opportunities to people so that when they come home, they don’t have to worry about applying for a job and being told they’re being terminated because of a prison conviction,” Sam says. “When you think about entrepreneurship, it doesn’t mean you have to build an organization. Speaking about your experience, you get paid to speak, that’s a business. …I speak across the country. … Whatever you’re good at, you can make a business out of it. Every time a woman comes through my organization, the question I ask them is, ‘what do you want to be [moving forward]?”

Building a foundation of business smarts and tenacity helped Sam balance her process of transitioning into life after prison, sharing her story through panels and speaking engagements and fulfilling a vision to help others. She knew she had to strengthen herself through research and education in order to accomplish the freedom of running her own show.

“I think because I had the understanding of what it took to start a business, because of my past, I knew [I had to do my due diligence]. … We’re creating an entrepreneurial course and partnering with a large corporation to do it. I believe education is extremely important for people to change their lives. …Skills education leads to business, and business leads to entrepreneurship. [Through entrepreneurship], I have the freedom to do this as I want to, and I don’t have to worry about people putting [limitations] on me [as a formerly incarcerated woman.]”

Get The Strap: 21 Savage Pulls Out Gun During Pool Party [VIDEO]

Post Malone In Concert - Sterling Heights, MI

Source: Scott Legato / Getty

Apparently, 21 Savage is packing, even at pool parties. The “Bank Account” rapper was caught on video pulling out a gun during a brawl to let heads know he is clearly ’bout that life. 

In the clip, someone is seen getting knocked the f*ck out at a Georgie pool party. While dude is slumped on the ground, recovering from the fade, you can see 21 Savage looking toward the perpetrator(s), holding a pistol in his right hand.

However, it would seem that 21 Savage was preparing for the smoke instead of initiating it.

Reports TMZ:

Savage was partying it up Saturday at an annual rager in the Atlanta area called “Big Ass Pool Party,” when a large group of people crashed the event through the back.

Eyewitnesses tell us Sav appeared uneasy at the unexpected entrance, and that all hell broke loose when a person from the other camp said hi to a girl in Savage’s circle, upsetting his side. We’re told someone from the crashers’ crew pulled out a gun when confronted, which led to Savage arming himself, too. It appears he receives a revolver from a friend.

We’re told no shots were fired during the altercation, but someone from the invading group was hit to the ground. Cops eventually shut things down — no word on any arrests.

Since part of this was caught on video, expect the cops to ask 21 a whole lot of questions.

Someone has gotta remind 21 Savage he has weed carriers and baggage handlers now who should be on the frontlines—he’s got too much to lose.

Shaunie O’Neal Says She Will NOT Be Attending Gloria Govan and Derek Fisher’s Wedding [Video]

Shaunie O’Neal has enough drama in her life with the return of VH1’s Basketball Wives, and it looks like she’ll be saving herself from any extra drama by skipping Gloria Govan & Derek Fisher’s wedding.

via TMZ:

Derek & Shaq won 3 rings together as Lakers and were tight bros, so one might assume Shaunie could possibly want to attend the nuptials.

Hell no. We got Shaunie at LAX and asked her if she plans on attending, and if the words out of her mouth didn’t tell the whole story, the look on her face CLEARLY did.

“No, I don’t so. No, I don’t think I’ll be going to that.”

If you didn’t know, the ladies have deep issues, stemming from Shaunie’s belief that Gloria’s sister, Laura, was messing around with Shaq while Shaunie was married to the Diesel.

It led to a HUGE blowup on a past episode of ‘Basketball Wives’ where Shaunie confronted Gloria … and it’s clear the whole thing isn’t water under the bridge.

We’re not sure whether it’ll be chicken or fish at the wedding … but, in this case … it’s clearly beef.

Video: Maroon 5’s Adam Levine takes Porsche Mission E for a spin, says the car has ‘a soul’

Porsche Mission E

Over the past few years, Tesla’s Model S hasn’t had to deal with much competition. Sure, there are more affordable EVs available from the likes of Chevy, but we’ve yet to see an all-electric luxury car hit the market and truly give the Model S a run for its money. That, however, is about to change with the impending release of the Porsche Mission E.

Set to go on sale sometime in 2019, the Mission E not only looks incredibly sleek, but it boasts some truly jaw-dropping specs as well. Sporting a 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds, the Mission E has a top speed in excess of 155 MPH and can go for 310 miles on a single charge. Moreover, Uew Michael of Porsche recently said that the Mission E will be able to charge twice as fast as a Tesla. Specifically, the Mission E can reportedly charge to 80% in just 15 minutes.

Prada Launches ‘Nylon Farm’ Video Project

NYLON PROTOCOL: Prada has launched a video project in four episodes focusing on its signature nylon fabric.
Dubbed “Nylon Farm” and filmed at the company’s industrial headquarters in Valvigna, Tuscany, the story aims to convey the brand’s blend of heritage, technological innovation and creativity through a futuristic fairy tale.
In the short videos, the Prada farm is populated with flocks of cyborg “nylon sheep” — a nod to science fiction and American writer Philip K. Dick. The sheep’s synthetic fleece is harvested via an alternate reality technology and woven into Prada’s signature nylon under the supervision of futuristic IT systems.

Say What Now? New Jersey Police Officer Caught on Camera Violently Punching a 20-Year-Old Woman for Drinking Beer on the Beach [Video]

A New Jersey police officer is under investigation after a viral video showed him repeatedly hitting a underage woman caught with a beer on the beach during a Memorial Day weekend outing.

via NYDN:

What began as a day of fun in the sun Saturday turned into a beach blanket beatdown after a Wildwood police officer was caught on camera slugging a 20-year-old woman in the head at least three times while trying to handcuff her, according to video of the encounter.

The disturbing clash was caught on a cell phone camera by a woman who had been napping on the Jersey Shore beach before the commotion broke out just feet away. Her video showed the officer straddling the woman in the sand, and wailing away at her head as he ordered her to “stop resisting.”

The woman, who was arrested, and later identified by police as Emily Weinman, cried out, “You’re not allowed to hit me like that!

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Weinman added, while struggling under the tight grip of two officers.

While KYW-TV in Philadelphia reports Weinman managed to kick an officer in the groin during the arrest, the video does not appear to show it.

Neither the officer who hit Weinman nor another cop that grabbed her legs or a third one who stood by has been identified.

The arrest took place on a beach in the resort city, about 30 miles south of Atlantic City.

Weinman, who lives in Philadelphia, was slapped with a slew of charges, including two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, aggravated assault by spitting bodily fluids at a police officer, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, obstruction and minor in possession of alcohol.

The footage was shared on Twitter on Saturday evening, and has since garnered more than 2.3 million views.

“I was sleeping on the beach and I woke up to this,” the video taker said in a post accompanying the footage. “I can’t believe it.”

Weinman, in a Facebook post that has since been removed, said she had been drinking a beer, according to NJ.com. The website said she was approached by officers on the beach around 4 p.m. Weinman said she passed a Breathalyzer test and that cops followed her when she went to make a phone call.

‘I asked them don’t they have something better to do as cops than to stop people for underage drinking on the beach,” the Facebook post said, and that’s when Weinman claims an officer said, “I was gonna let you go but now I’ll write you up.”Weinman said she refused to give the officer her name for the ticket. She said she tripped and fell as she was backing away, and that’s when the officer tackled her.

Weinman turns 21 in September, according to court records.

Weinman pleaded guilty to simple assault and reckless endangerment in November for a 2016 arrest in Philadelphia, records show.

Wildwood Police Chief Robert Regalbuto found the video upsetting, authorities said.

“Chief Regalbuto stated that while he finds this video to be alarming, he does not want to rush to any judgment until having the final results of the investigation,” the department said in a statement posted on Facebook.

The officers involved in the arrest were placed on desk duty pending the results of the internal probe, officials said.

Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. said the officers were wearing body cameras and when the footage is released, it will show Weinman insulting and spitting at the cops, according to Philly.com.

You can see the footage for yourself below. This is completely unacceptable.

Harvey Weinstein Turns Himself In, Charged with Rape and Sexual Abuse of Two Women [Video]

Harvey Weinstein turned himself into the NYPD this morning and walked out in cuffs on the way to court.

He has officially been charged with rape, a criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconduct for incidents involving 2 separate women.

via TMZ:

Weinstein arrived to the NYPD’s 1st Precinct Friday morning flanked by marshals and was then taken to court in handcuffs where he was scheduled to be arraigned.

According to the complaint, Weinstein was charged with “engaging in sexual intercourse with another person by forcible compulsion.”  That is the basis of the rape charge involving an unidentified woman.  The allegation … on March 18, 2013, “defendant kept informant physically against her will in a room and engaged in sexual intercourse with informant by forcible compulsion, to wit, defendant penetrated informant’s vagina with his penis and, at the time of the incident informant had clearly expressed her lack of consent to the act.”

The incident involving the other woman — Lucia Evans — involved a 2004 incident where “defendant forced informant to engage in oral sexual conduct, to wit, defendant grabbed the back of informant’s head forcing her head downward and forcing her mouth onto his penis.”

Weinstein’s bail was set at $ 10 million … he was released after posting $ 1 million cash and was fitted with a monitoring device which will track his movements. If he wants to travel beyond New York or Connecticut, he has to get approval from the judge.  He also surrendered his passport.

Although Weinstein didn’t enter a plea today, his lawyer, Ben Brafman, says, “Mr. Weinstein has always maintained that he has never engaged in non-consensual sexual behavior with anyone. Nothing about today’s proceedings changes Mr. Weinstein’s position. Mr. Weinstein maintains that he is Not Guilty of the charges filed today and is confident that he will be fully exonerated.”

Brafman said Weinstein may be guilty of bad behavior but not criminal conduct, adding his client did not invent the casting couch … it’s been around for a long time.

The judge also issued a temporary order of protection … prohibiting Weinstein from contacting one of the alleged victims.   It’s unclear why the order was not prohibiting contact with both accusers. 

The NYPD released a statement, saying, “The NYPD thanks these brave survivors for their courage to come forward and seek justice.”

Evans is just one of dozens of women who have come forward with allegations against the disgraced movie mogul.

The U.S. Attorney in NYC is also investigating Weinstein but so far they have not filed charges.  

It’s about time.

The Regeneradores are ugly, terrifying and can easily kill you if you are not prepared.
The Regeneradores are ugly, terrifying and can easily kill you if you are not prepared.

In a game plagued with disgusting and terrifying enemies, you may think that genetically engineered monsters could be just one more of the same. But these gray nightmares in Resident Evil 4 pack a dark secret. Well, 2-5 dark secrets to be more precise.


The parasites inside the Regeneradores seen using the Infrared Scope.
The parasites inside the Regeneradores seen using the Infrared Scope.

Turns out that to kill the Regeneradors you have to use an infrared scope and locate 2-5 really small parasites inside their bodies and shoot them. Every other damage inflicted can be easily regenerated, including shooting their limbs off.

Besides, you always encounter them in small spaces and you have to kill them super fast. All while protecting Ashley and dodging their attacks. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

Skeleton Wheel/Wheel Skeletons (Dark Souls)


If hell actually exists, it is plagued with these things.
If hell exists, it is plagued with these things.

Skeleton Wheels are a great example of annoying enemies that are necessary. I assume that the idea behind them was to teach you to be a hunter: silent, deadly, and fast. Because if you’re not, then you are just in for some constant disappointment.

Dark Souls is a punishing game, but come on, fast enemies that attack in packs and break your guard (no matter what you do) causing you to be staggered, even if you are equipped to prevent this? These are just plain unfair, even by Dark Souls standards.

These nasties, who first appeared in the first Dark Souls game, are ready to group up and run down anyone foolhardy enough to drop off the cliffs in the Catacombs. By rolling into you, their rapid attacks would deplete your stamina and effectively stunlock you. We enjoyed a brief respite before they snuck into a side area in Dark Souls III.

Pole Vaulting Zombie (Plants vs. Zombies)


These guys are a nightmare in the early levels of PVZ.
These guys are a nightmare in the early levels of ‘PvZ.’

For gamers like me who place all of our plants symmetrically, the pole vaulting zombie in Plants vs Zombies was a nightmare. He usually jumped over your first line of defense, leaving whatever was behind completely helpless.

This is where most of us started to freak out because you had to hurriedly put some plant there. And if you already used all of your last resource plants like the Cherry Bomb, it meant some poor sunflower had to suffer a slow and agonizing death, or worse, you got a game over screen. Definitely an annoying and frustrating nightmare.

Malboro (Final Fantasy)


You eventually learn to dread those two words.
You eventually learn to dread those two words.

Malboros are dreaded by almost every Final Fantasy fan, and not just because of them being strange and ugly-looking creatures, but rather because of their signature attack — Bad Breath. These two simple words mean that one of your party members is going to be afflicted with most, if not all, possible status ailments in the game.

If you weren’t properly prepared to deal with status ailments, you can easily see how a single Malboro wipes out your entire party. Because these creatures don’t only inflict status ailments, after they’ve done so, they proceed to relentlessly attack your party.

To add insult to the injury, Malboros often have a decent amount of HP and are also kind of heavy-hitters. A round of applause for the FF character creators.

Creepers (Minecraft)


These things are silent, deadly, and destructive.
These things are silent, deadly, and destructive.

Minecraft was a phenomenon that most gamers didn’t understand at first. But once you got the hang of it and started to enjoy the freedom of its open world, everyone did the same: build a house.

So you spent hours farming for the materials needed to create your dream house and when you finally stepped back to admire your polygonal architectural prowess, you suddenly hear that hissing sound. And voilà! Just like that, hours of your life are lost because one of those green hell-spawns decided to spawn close to you. Thank you so much, Markus.

Monks/Missionaries (Age of Empires II)


Their praying fx was one of the most dreaded sounds in AOEII.
Their praying fx was one of the most dreaded sounds in ‘AOEII.’

The Monks and Missionaries were very interesting units in Age of Empires II because they introduced a very cool mechanic: converting enemy units so they instantly became part of your army. A bit overkill, but so far so good, right? No! The thing is, developers also added a healing function transforming the Monks into one of the most powerful (and overpowered) support units in the entire game.

Monks are sneaky, cheap to create, hard to counter, and, in great numbers, capable of converting entire villages. You knew you were screwed when your precious (and very expensive) Trebuchets, Elephants, and War Wagons suddenly faced an army of monks because when they started to pray, there was no turning back.

Zubats (Pokémon)


Your final Pokémon is about to faint? It would be a shame if you couldn't scape...
Your final Pokémon is about to faint? It would be a shame if you couldn’t escape…

Caves in Pokémon games are often really dark and full of wild Pokémon. Literally, every step you take has a 50/50 chance of triggering an encounter. That could be great if you got to meet lots of different Pokémon. However, caves feature mostly one Pokémon: the Zubat.

These non-menacing looking bats have one prominent ability: Supersonic. This is a non-elemental attack that confuses your Pokémon leaving them with a 50% chance of causing themselves damage instead of attacking the other Pokémon.

Pair that with the fact that escaping isn’t guaranteed and you are in for a frustrating encounter where if your luck runs out, a single Zubat can whip your entire party.

Gems from Valeisha Butterfield Jones, Dapper Dan, and Other Black Leaders [VIDEO]

It was a night of celebration, inspiration, and black excellence at the New York Urban League’s annual Frederick Douglass Awards Dinner on Tuesday. This year, dozens of influencers, leaders, and luminaries applauded the astounding achievements of three esteemed African American trailblazers: Google executive Valeisha Butterfield Jones, fashion innovator Dapper Dan, and Next Management President Kyle Hagler. In addition, the ceremony serves as a fundraiser to support the organization’s mission to foster equality and change through scholarships, programs, and initiatives.

New York Urban League President Arva Rice said each honoree was chosen for paving a pathway of access and mobility for other people of color within their respective industries. “Looking at the influence that Dapper Dan has had, not only on his culture but fashion as a whole is so moving. Drawing inspiration from his resilience to pursue his dream and his recent resurgence we felt the history of this living legend had to be told,” said Rice in a statement. She added, “Kyle and Valeisha are amazing representations of how we as a people have evolved to break barriers and to achieve our highest capabilities.”

During their acceptance speeches, each honoree shared inspirational gems about their work and impact on society. Here are a few nuggets.

Valeisha Butterfield Jones

Valeisha Butterfield-Jones

As Google’s Global Head of Women and Black Community and Engagement, Butterfield-Jones advocates on behalf of minorities at the tech giant as well for diversity and inclusion in the industry at large. While accepting the Ann S. Kheel Award, she stressed the need to strive for progress when it comes to black women not only in the tech sphere but also in politics and entrepreneurship. Here are the stats she shared:

  • Black women generate over $ 1 trillion in this country every year, but “we’re still locked out of career opportunities for the companies that we helped build.”
  • Black women are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the U.S., “yet we still don’t have access to capital to scale and grow our businesses.”
  • Black women are the most educated demographic in the U.S., yet they “still make 63 cents to the dollar of every white man.”
  • Black women have the highest voter turnout of any group in the U.S., “but yet, our priorities are not part of any administrations agenda.”


Dapper Dan

Dapper Dan was honored with the Icon Award for the mark that he has made on fashion. During his acceptance speech, he talked about the struggle he’s faced as a black man in fashion earlier on in his career. “When I tried to do something positive in my community, and I tried to open up a store, I couldn’t get businesses to sell to me because I was black.”

Rather than doing business with the influencer, high profile brands have been accused of appropriating Dan’s style. Gucci, for instance, featured a fur bomber jacket with puffy sleeves in its Resort 2018 collection last year that looked almost identical to a Louis Vuitton monogrammed jacket Dan created in the ’80s. After outraged social media users called Gucci out for stealing the style without giving Dan proper recognition, Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele called the jacket “an homage” to Dan. Gucci also made amends by recently partnering with Dan to open a new store in Harlem, N.Y. and providing him with funding and support.


Kyle Hager

Hager, who was honored with the Frederick Douglass Medallion for Leadership and Service for his role in pushing for representation and guiding young people of color in the pursuits of their modeling dreams, paid tribute to Frederick Douglass, himself, and black women, who taught him that “self-actiulization and perseverance [is] the only path to true success.”

Say What Now? Woman Poops in a Coffee Shop and Throws It At Employees After Being Denied Restroom Access [Video]

A woman got so fed up at a Tim Horton’s coffee shop employee for denying her access to the restroom that she decided to take a dump in the middle of the floor.

Not only did she relieve herself in front of other patrons simply trying to enjoy their coffee and light bites, she then picked up her sh*t and threw it at the employees.

The entire incident was captured on video.

via BuzzFeed:

A spokesperson for the Canadian coffee chain told BuzzFeed News that some of its restaurants have a “restricted access policy for restrooms to ensure the well-being of our guests.”

The spokesperson said that their current understanding of the incident is that the woman was denied access to the restroom based on her “past behavior.” This seemed to have sparked her rage.

The targeted employee called authorities, who continue to investigate the incident.

“We strive to create a welcoming environment for all of our guests and the communities we serve,” the coffee chain said in a statement. “We are deeply concerned by this video as the safety of our team members and guests is always a top priority for us.”

That’s what you call a sh*tty workday. Watch the footage below.

Watch: Willow Smith Shocks Jada By Revealing She Used to Cut Herself After the Success of ‘Whip My Hair’ [Video]

Willow Smith says she lost her sanity during the peak of her childhood fame.

On the second episode of “Red Table Talk,” Willow, her mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, and grandmother Adrienne Banfield-Jones openly discussed loss. When asked about her biggest loss, Willow disclosed something that she had never told her family about.

“I would have to say … honestly I feel like I lost my sanity at one point,” the 17-year-old singer and model said. “It was after that whole ‘Whip My Hair’ thing and I just had stopped doing singing lessons and I was kind of like, just in this gray area of, ‘Who am I? Do I have a purpose? Is there anything, like, I can do besides this?’”

Willow released “Whip My Hair” in 2010 and it skyrocketed Willow to make — she was just 9-years-old.

She continued:

“After the tour and the promotion and all of that, they wanted me to finish my album,” Willow added. “And I was like — I’m not gonna do that. And after all of that kinda settled down and it was like a kind of lull, I was just listening to a lot of dark music, and it was just so crazy and I was just like plunged into this black hole, and I was, like, cutting myself.”

Jada and Adrienne couldn’t believe what they were hearing.

Willow said she had never told anyone except for one friend and even showed her mom an old scar on her wrist.

“I never talk about it because it was such a short, weird point in my life, but you have to pull yourself … out of it,” she said. “I honestly felt like I was experiencing so much emotional pain, but my physical circumstances weren’t reflecting that.”

We have to commend Jada for her compassionate reaction to Willow’s revelation. We can’t imagine that, as a mother, hearing your daughter say she used to cut herself is easy.

Say What Now? White Woman Calls the Cops on Black Yale Student Taking a Nap in Dorm Common Room [Video]

In today’s episode of ‘Living While Black,’ a white graduate student at Yale called the police on a Black student who fell asleep in the common area of their dorm.

via NYDN:

The white woman confronted Lolade Siyonbola, 34, after she fell asleep on the couch in the school’s Hall of Graduate Studies.

“I have every right to call the police. You cannot sleep in that room,” she said to Siyonbola.

When police arrived at the scene, they told Siyonbola “She called us [and] said there’s somebody who appeared they weren’t … where they were supposed to be.”  

The cops, who asked to see Siyonbola’s ID, proceeded to question her for more than 15 minutes before they confirmed she was a student at Yale.

They said the process was prolonged because her name was misspelled in a school database of student information.

During their interactions, Siyonbola unlocked the door to her dorm room to show them that she was a student and called the officers’ behavior “harassment.”

“I really don’t know if there’s a justification for you actually being in the building,” she said.

“I deserve to be here. I pay tuition like everybody else. I’m not going to justify my existence here.”

More than 350,000 people watched Siyonbola’s Facebook videos, with some commenters expressing their support while others commended her for remaining calm.

Lynn Cooley, the dean of Yale’s graduate school of arts and sciences, sent an email to graduate students addressing the situation on Tuesday.

“Incidents like that of last night remind us of the continued work needed to make Yale a truly inclusive place,” she wrote.

“I am committed to redoubling our efforts to build a supportive community in which all graduate students are empowered in their intellectual pursuits and professional goals within a welcoming environment.”

You can watch video of this infuriating incident below. We commend Lolade for handling this unnecessary encounter so calmly.

The 9 Blackest Moments at the Met Gala [Video + Photos]

Hollywood darlings, fashion powerhouses, and elite socialites convened in New York City Monday night for the annual Met Gala, an exclusive fundraiser to benefit the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. Attendees adorned angelic looks and costumes as according to the theme: “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” However, by no surprise, a number of black stars took their creativity to the next level, while others refused to be anything less than unapologetically black.

Here are nine of the blackest moments that occurred at the 2018 Met Gala.

When Issa Rae Rocked Cornrows

HBO star Issa Rae sported cornbraids and beads styled by celebrity hairstylist and natural hair expert Felicia Leatherwood. In a post on Instagram, Leatherwood revealed that the style paid tribute to the motherland as well as Rae’s African roots. “I tried blending her heritage of West African with the angelic theme of the Gala. If you look closely at the beads, you will see the continent of Africa,” she wrote.

Leatherwood also styled actress and screenwriter Lena Waithe’s locs into a beautiful updo.



When Solange Showed Up in a Du-Rag

Solange Knowles accessorized her Iris van Herpen dress and latex thigh-high boots with a du-rag and a headdress made of blonde hair. The “Cranes In The Sky” singer said her look was inspired by various saints and her own interpretation of God.

“My inspiration was Black Madonna, Saint Heron…all of the Black and African saints,” she told Vogue, adding, “and I’m really excited because my du-rag says ‘my god wears a du-rag.’”

When John Boyega and Michael B. Jordan Led a “Met Takeover”

Star Wars actor John Boyega and Black Panther actor Michael B. Jordan shared a moment with several other black Hollywood elites that they proclaimed as the “Met takeover.”



When Riri Slayed

Because only a queen could pull off a look inspired by the Pope: Rihanna wore a papal crown, minidress, and a cape designed by Maison Margiela. The pop superstar also co-hosted the fashion gala alongside Amal Clooney, Donatella Versace, Anna Wintour, and Stephen and Christine Schwarzman.

When Nicki Minaj Threw Shade

Leave it up to black people to sneak in subtle shade and side-eye-worthy remarks. Social media users reacted when Nicki Minaj referenced herself as “the bad guy” during a live interview, while many interpreted her comments as a dig toward Cardi B. and Migos, who Minaj has accused of villainizing her.

Every month, we curate the best videos, blog posts and Instagrams from our Lonely Planet Pathfinders. This month, we’re featuring Arienne from See You Soon who takes us on a trip through Canada in her latest video.

‘Two months, four provinces and 13,000 km, all condensed into one epic three-minute montage. After years of travelling around the world, I finally made the decision to explore my own country. My husband and I saved up to make this road trip a reality and it surpassed our wildest dreams. We visited all four Atlantic Canada provinces, including New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and even Newfoundland and Labrador. Atlantic Canada is truly a special place; the landscape, the history and the people make it a great region to explore on four wheels. You’ll be captivated by the scenery and get hooked by its charm.

Atlantic Canada montage – See You Soon

Why we like it: From sweeping drone shots to time-lapse and first-person POV footage, we especially like the variety of film effects used in this video. It’s no easy feat to bring these varied clips together, let alone to successfully compress two months of adventures into a three-minute montage, but we thoroughly enjoyed it – hats off to Arienne for some top-notch editing skills!

We also enjoyed a whistle-stop tour of Santa Barbara in California from TravelingJules and Mark Hadj Hamou’s cinematic footage of the Philippines, both of which had us reaching for our passports.

Thanks to all the Pathfinders who submitted their videos this month – keep your eyes peeled on our Thorn Tree forum where we’ll post the next submission call-out!
