Ardi Rizal of Sumatra, Indonesia was given his first cigarette at 18 months, and now smokes 2 packs a day! Despite bribes from officials to give the family of the child a new car if he quits, it won’t be happening anytime soon. His mother says, “He’s totally addicted. If he doesn’t get cigarettes, he gets angry and screams and batters his head against the wall. He tells me he feels dizzy and sick.” Unfortunately his dad doesn’t see it as a problem. “He looks pretty healthy to me. I don’t see the problem,” he said.
This is not cute! His parents need their asses kicked!

Actress and singer Lena Horne was the first black performer to be signed to a long term contract by a major Hollywood studio. She died on Sunday night at New York Presbyterian Hospital. Lena Horne battled racism in effort to become Hollywood’s first black leading lady. She could have been a major star, but was born 50 years too early. Horne arrived in Hollywood in the 1930s and is credited for breaking barriers for black actresses to get bigger roles. Many of Horne’s appearances in movies were in the 1940s and 1950s, but It was difficult to get roles for fear white audiences might protest the appearance of a black actress. There was also a ban on interracial relationships in films.
By the mid 50′s Horne left Hollywood and established herself as one of the premiere night club performers of the post-war era. In the 50s, 60s and 70s Horne made appearances on TV/Variety shows in the US & UK. In 1981, Horne was a Broadway star & received a Tony Award for her work. In the the 80s and 90s Horne was active in the recording studio and released a few musical projects, receiving a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1989. In 1995, Horne released a “live” album, and won a Grammy for best Jazz Vocal Album, and continued to work through the age of 83.

Last night a t shirt vendor saw smoke coming from a suspicious Nissan Pathfinder on 45th street between 7th and 8th avenue and alerted a foot patrol officer. Authorites found “Bomb making material” including propane cylinders, fireworks and timing devices in the SUV. Tourists were cleared from the area and the explosive device was dismantled.
According to CNN:
The FBI was on the scene as part of the Joint Terrorism Task Force, with a spokesman telling CNN the agency was taking the situation “very seriously” and that the situation was still being sorted out. The Department of Homeland Security said it was monitoring the developments. President Obama, who was updated on the situation late Saturday night, said the federal government was prepared to provide support.
Rapper Keith Elam, better known as Guru passed away yesterday after a long battle with cancer. He was 43. Guru suffered a cardiac arrest on March 2 that left him in a coma. He was part of the hip hop duo Gang Starr and was known for delivering complex lyrics in a unique monotone style. Guru was considered one of the pioneers of the hip hop jazz crossover. While battling cancer, Guru wrote a letter to his family, friends & fans. Read it below.
I, Guru, am writing this letter to my fans, friends and loved ones around the world. I have had a long battle with cancer and have succumbed to the disease. I have suffered with this illness for over a year. I have exhausted all medical options.
I have a non-profit organization called Each One Counts dedicated to carrying on my charitable work on behalf of abused and disadvantaged children from around the world and also to educate and research a cure for this terrible disease that took my life. I write this with tears in my eyes, not of sorrow but of joy for what a wonderful life I have enjoyed and how many great people I have had the pleasure of meeting.
My loyal best friend, partner and brother, Solar, has been at my side through it all and has been made my health proxy by myself on all matters relating to myself. He has been with me by my side on my many hospital stays, operations, doctors visits and stayed with me at my home and cared for me when I could not care for myself. Solar and his family is my family and I love them dearly and I expect my family, friends, and fans to respect that, regardless to anybody’s feelings on the matter. It is my wish that counts. This being said I am survived by the love of my life, my sun KC, who I trust will be looked after by Solar and his family as their own. Any awards or tributes should be accepted, organized approved by Solar on behalf myself and my son until he is of age to except on his own.
I do not wish my ex-DJ to have anything to do with my name likeness, events tributes etc. connected in anyway to my situation including any use of my name or circumstance for any reason and I have instructed my lawyers to enforce this. I had nothing to do with him in life for over 7 years and want nothing to do with him in death. Solar has my life story and is well informed on my family situation, as well as the real reason for separating from my ex-DJ. As the sole founder of GangStarr, I am very proud of what GangStarr has meant to the music world and fans. I equally am proud of my Jazzmatazz series and as the father of Hip-Hop/Jazz. I am most proud of my leadership and pioneering efforts on Jazzmatazz 4 for reinvigorating the Hip-Hop/Jazz genre in a time when music quality has reached an all time low. Solar and I have toured in places that I have never been before with GangStarr or Jazzmatatazz and we gained a reputation for being the best on the planet at Hip-Hop/Jazz, as well as the biggest and most influential Hip-Hop/Jazz record with Jazzmatazz 4 of the decade to now. The work I have done with Solar represents a legacy far beyond its time. And we as a team were not afraid to push the envelope. To me this is what true artists do! As men of honor we stood tall in the face of small mindedness, greed, and ignorance. As we fought for music and integrity at the cost of not earning millions and for this I will always be happy and proud, and would like to thank the million fans who have seen us perform over the years from all over the world. The work I have done with Solar represents a legacy far beyond its time and is my most creative and experimental to date. I hope that our music will receive the attention it deserves as it is some of the best work I have done and represents some of the best years of my life.
More than 100 of Tiger Woods’ graphic text messages have been released and you can view them on Joslyn James’ website. (Yes, that’s her pictured above)

OK, I would like to have a threesome with you and another girl you trust.

September 8, 2009: “Having a few issues at home. Might be a little later before I see you tonight.” That text is followed by “parent hood melt down ”
And the last message is dated October 4, 2009. It says, “Don’t f**king talk to me. You almost just ruined my whole life. If my agent and these guys would have seen you there, F**k.”
This is madness!
