Lil Wayne Is Sober, and He Loves the Feeling!

Published

on

Lil Wayne, if you didn’t know this (for some strange reason), liked his share of drugs and alcohol, and used the two heavily for his writing process.  Well now, according to the terms of his probation, he has been ordered to refrain from any drinking or drug use for the next three years, and he likes it!

Though Wayne has said that his straight-edge lifestyle has made recording a bit harder, he told MTV during a recent interview that he’s happy:

“It’s a big difference. I almost jumped in the crowd…I’m sober, I’m sweating. I’m tasting my sweat. My sweat taste different. My sweat used to taste like weed. But now it’s just, I’m like I don’t know what it is … I’m out there, my eyes big, my eyes all wide. I had threw my glasses, I don’t even need these. I could see everything right now. But yeah man, it’s a great feeling.”

And it seems like the positive change extends way past Lil Wayne.  Tour mate Nicki Minaj recently remarked that her boss is a “joy to be around” now that he’s clean:

“He’s nicer. He’s more calm…I guess when you’re not getting high you have to deal with reality and I think he likes his reality now … The couple (of) times I’ve seen him, it’s just a joy to be around. He’s easier to get along with and easier to talk to, I feel, now.”

Wayne and Minaj are currently midway through their sold-out 24-city ‘I Am Still Music’ tour with Rick Ross and Travis Barker.  All I got to say is congrats to Lil Weezy!

Need Some Good News? Millions Of Baby Turtles Just Made Their Way To The Ocean

Published

Finally, the universe shells out some good news.

Nature is pretty scary right now. There’s a mysterious virus wafting through the air around the world. There are things called murder hornets zipping to places they shouldn’t be zipping to. At any moment I am waiting for the dust bunnies under my bed to grow fangs and turn on me. Alas, among all the bad news there is bound to be some good news and today’s good news comes in the form of baby turtles.

Over on India’s eastern coast lies Odisha’s Gahirmatha Beach, a nesting spot for the endangered Olive Ridley turtles. Each year around this time millions of turtle hatchlings scamper through the sand and make their way to the ocean. The mass nesting typically attracts thousands of tourists who tend to disturb the nesting turtles but because the coronavirus pandemic has reduced the human activity on the beach, more turtles were able to lay their eggs resulting in one of the highest turtles births ever! Perhaps every grey cloud does have a hardened, turtle-shelled lining.

Check out the video of the amazing good news below!

‘Six Feet Apart’ Is A Heartbreakingly Relatable Coronavirus Song

Published

on

You can fit a whole lot of emotions in the social distance between us.

Quarantine has a way of jumbling up emotions leaving you unsure of exactly how you are feeling at times. Well, singer-songwriter Alec Benjamin took that jigsaw puzzle of feelings and laid them out into a beautiful, albeit heartbreaking, new song entitled “Six Feet Apart.” In the song, the Phoenix-based singer recounts the challenges of being apart from family, friends and loved ones and the emotional toll the distance is taking on all of us. He begins the song on the verge of a breakdown singing “they say distance is relative and relative to relatives I have I’d say I’m relatively close to breaking down because right now I feel so alone.” The chorus, however, gives a particularly hard tug on the old heart strings.

“Oh I miss you most at six feet apart when you’re right outside my window but can’t ride inside my car and it hurts to know just how lovely you are and be too far away to hold but close enough to break my heart. I miss your smile. Feels like miles. Six feet apart.”

Benjamin posted the song to YouTube and it has already racked up over 800,000 views with many of the comments praising how relatable the song is. One user commented “This hits different when you’re in quarantine listening to this understanding every word and feeling it.” Another simply said “This is what quarantine feels like.”

Sometimes sinking into your feels for a few isn’t such a bad thing. We have to remember that every colorful emotion is important during this time and deserves acknowledgement. If listening to this song once doesn’t fill your emotional quota for the day take a listen to another one of Benjamin’s songs, “I Built A Friend.” Oooooh that will make you feel some things I promise!

Check out the quarantine-themed song below and remember even thought it’s hard, stay home!
