Tommy Chong, the hysterical comedian and other half of the legendary pot-loving duo Cheech & Chong, has revealed that he is battling prostate cancer. 

Chong told CNN Saturday in an interview that while he saw symptoms as far back as eight years ago, he was diagnosed “about a month ago,” saying,

“I’ve got prostate cancer, and I’m treating it with hemp oil, with cannabis…So [legalizing marijuana] means a lot more to me than just being able to smoke a joint without being arrested.”

The 74-year-old, who was talking to CNN’s Don Lemon about the fight to legalize marajuana, that his cancer is a “slow stage one [that I’ve] had for a long time … I know it had nothing to do with cannabis; cannabis is a cure.”

Chong he quit smoking pot about a year ago “for health reasons”, but still ingests hemp oil at night “so I won’t be woozy all day … I’m taking it as medicine.”

Chong and friend Cheech Marin appeared in several CHEECH AND CHONG films in the 1970s and 1980s. The two still continue to tour as a comedy act.

We wish him only the best with his recovery.

Video Of Naya Rivera Singing With Her Son Is A Beautiful Way To Remember The Talented Mom

Published

on

It has been truly a sad week for anyone who loved Naya Rivera. The 33-year old, multitalented actress, singer and mom went missing during a boat trip with her son on Lake Piru in Southern California. Sadly after days of searching, Rivera was found dead with authorities concluding that in the last moments of her life she managed to muster up enough strength to get her 4-year old son back into the boat but not enough to save herself.

The Glee star rose to fame during the show’s 6-season run as she portrayed the fierce and fabulous Santana Lopez. Rivera’s success continued after the show as she released the hit song “Sorry” in 2011 and went on to star in At The Devil’s Door and Devious Maids. Of course Hollywood tributes have been pouring out with messages coming from former cast members expressing just how much they will miss the shining star. One tribute, in particular, came from Glee co-star Amber Riley and it is perhaps the most beautiful way to remember Rivera. In a post on Instagram Riley shared a video of Rivera singing a duet with her young son with a caption that read “My favorite duet partner. I love you. I miss you. I don’t have words right now, just lots of feelings. Rest In Peace Angel, and know that your family will never have to worry about anything.

Rest in peace Naya Rivera.

Bill Nye Goes Viral For TikTok Demonstrating The Importance Of Wearing A Face Mask

Perhaps we should listen to the SCIENCE GUY.

It has been well over a hundred days since the coronavirus began shutting down the United States and for some reason there is still a debate roaring about why we should be taking the simplest of measures to protect ourselves and others from the potentially deadly virus. Well luckily for us, scientist Bill Nye just shared a very informative TikTok explaining just how important the use of face masks is during this unprecedented time.

The 64-year old tv star made a series of two TikToks (meaning it literally takes less than 2 minutes to understand this message) demonstrating the effectiveness of different face coverings and then explaining just how important it is to wear one. Face masks… prevent particles from my respiratory system from getting into the air and getting into your respiratory system” Nye shares. 

The experiment shows the scientist trying to blow out a lit candle while wearing a knitted scarf, a homemade double layered mask, and then an N-95 mask. Obviously the medical grade N-95 mask garnered the best results but Nye goes on to reiterate the importance of face coverings in general by saying “Everybody, this is a matter literally of life and death. And when I use the word ‘literally’, I mean literally a matter of life and death.” Eerie to hear it put it that way but that is the truth!

Check out the videos below and get yourself a good mask!

Mariah Carey Is Nearly ‘Crushed’ In Blooper From Last Year’s #BottleTopChallenge

Published

on

That’s one high-octane octave.

Mariah Carey has a vocal range that leaves even dogs cheering for more, so it was no surprise when she took part in last year’s #BottleTopChallenge. The social media challenge forced singers to open a bottle top with only the use of their voices. Well obviously there isn’t a bottle top big enough to stand up to Carey’s whistle register so she shared a video demonstrating just how easy it was for her to complete the challenge.

I bet you she has never needed help opening a jar of pickles. It has been one year since the 5-time Grammy winner shared the original post and to commemorate the occasion Carey shared an outtake in which she is nearly “crushed” by the bottle. Of course the word “crushed” is a bit over-dramatized but it makes for a good post, darling.

Quite possibly the most impressive blooper ever. Knocking over a bottle of champagne is way more exciting then just spinning off the cap!
