POP NEWS: Meek Mill Gets Released From Prison!

Published

on

Meek Mill is as free as an eagle…a Philadelphia eagle that is. I know sports play a part in this somehow so hopefully that pun lands later.

Robert Williams, aka Meek Mill, has spent the last 5 months in prison for violating his parole from a 2008 drugs and weapon case. Originally facing a 2 to 4 year sentence, Mill was granted “unsecured bail” by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, overruling a lower court’s initial decision.

Mill’s incarceration ignited a nationwide controversy, and had a number of fellow rappers and fans protesting the initial arrest. Since 2008, Mill has been arrested twice for reckless driving and for participating in a fight but both charges were dropped, which is why the public can’t understand the decision to have him thrown back in jail. Mill’s supporters have claimed that his case is a perfect example of a broken justice system.

After his release, the rapper took to twitter to thank his family and friends for all the love they sent during a time he described as a “nightmare.”

Immediately after being released, Mill was picked up from prison VIA HELICOPTER by Michael Rubin, friend and owner of the Philadelphia 76ers. Rubin escorted Mill to the 76ers playoff game, where the rapper rant the ceremonial bell before tipoff. Argh, I was so close to having the right sport analogy!

Turns out a ding from a large bell is what freedom sounds like. Good luck to Meek Mill and let’s hope the court system gives him a chance to succeed.

AWWW: A Rescue Team Of 9 Was Needed To Rescue 1 Adorably Chubby Rat

Published

on

Over in Bensheim, Germany a rotund rodent got herself into a jam when she tried to squeeze through a hole of a manhole cover only to get stuck…and honestly, I can relate. When I was 8 years old I tried to squeeze my thunder-thighs-in-training into a children’s swing and it took my dad and three other grown men to get me out. I am the German fat-rat!

Volunteer firefighters were called when a young girl noticed the fat rat was stuck and no time was wasted to help the poor critter. Eight firefighters and at least one animal rescuer appeared on the scene to safely extract the chubby critter. Animal rescuer Michael Sehr told BBC “She had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip. There was no going forward or back.” When asked why anyone would even want to save something so many are repulsed by Sehr said “Even animals that are hated by many deserve respect.”

Alls well that ends well! Hopefully no authorites will be needed to help me shimmy out of these skinny jeans I thought looked cute this morning…in the meantime, check out the entire rescue below!

Elton John And Taron Egerton Performed A Fantastic Duet Of ‘Tiny Dancer’

Published

on

The dancer may be tiny but the talent on stage was massive! Taron Egerton and Elton John gave a fantastic performance of “Tiny Dancer” last night at the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.

If you’ve been looking for a reason to toss on your bedazzled cape and brightly colored sunglasses then boy do I have good news for you. An “epic musical fantasy” about Elton John’s life, entitled Rocketman, is expected to hit theaters in May 2019. Taron Egerton, from Robin Hood fame, plays the musical legend and judging by his performance last night, we are all in for a treat. The audience of the charity event felt like a candle in the wind when Taron suggested an off-the-cuff performance of “Tiny Dancer.” There isn’t even a pun creative enough to embody what the audience must have felt when Elton John himself volunteered to accompany Taron on the piano!

In addition to a truly moving performance, the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party raised more than $6.3 million for an effort to end AIDS.

VIRAL: There Is No Room For Love When This Dog Protects His Barney

Published

on

I think this dog missed the whole “I love you, you love me” message Barney was trying to teach all those years ago…

In this viral video posted to Twitter, an adorable pup channels his inner Cujo anytime his owner gets close to the Barney the Dinosaur stuffed animal. While the frenzied attacks are comical in themselves, this video should definitely be played with the sound up. While we never see more than the dog owner’s hand, we hear his high pitched screams of terror every time the dog take a lunge.
