Attempt to Attack Ryan Lochte at DWTS

Dancing is NOT a contact sport.


Ryan Lochte is far from being the most loved athlete in America right now… but we may have been underestimating just how hated he really is.
As you’ve probably heard, the Olympic swimmer did his best to impress during Monday night’s premiere of Dancing with the Stars — but his hard work was completely overshadowed by two protesters who rushed the stage!

While Carrie Ann Inaba was attempting to give her judge’s critique to Ryan and pro partner Cheryl Burke during the 2-hour episode, two men wearing anti-Lochte t-shirts were apprehended off-camera. 8

However, hours later on Good Morning America on Tuesday, Tom Bergeron actually shared found footage of the take down — and those men were straight-up TACKLED by security guards!
Rightfully so, of course… but this video is much more violent than we ever expect to see from ABC!!

Ch-ch-check out GMA’s behind-the-scenes look at the shocking DWTS moment (below)!!!






Lil Wayne’s ‘Retirement’ and How His War Against Birdman Got This Far

Trigger fingers turned to Twitter fingers earlier this month, when Lil Wayne aka Tunechi aka Weezy aka Mr. Carter appeared to quit the rap game via social media.

Lil Wayne’s ‘Retirement’ and How His War Against Birdman Got This Far

Lil Wayne’s illustrious career began at the tender age of 9, when the prepubescent NOLA native joined Cash Money Records. That is, Weezy dropped his first platinum-selling record when Drake was still prepping for his Bar Mitzvah. In 2005, he founded his own label imprint, Young Money Entertainment. His sixth album, Tha Carter III, was an embarrassment of riches. If Lil Wayne had only given us “Lollipop,” it would have been enough—let alone “Got Money” and “A Milli.”

Unfortunately, like countless artists before him, FKA Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. fell victim to his own demons. Aforementioned demons included an inexplicable desire to make rock music, which led to 2010’s Rebirth, a 12-track disaster that the Los Angeles Times called “one of the worst albums of the year.” Like Blake Lively getting her racist Goop on or Kate Upton offering unsolicited opinions on American race relations, Lil Wayne learned a hard and fast lesson about staying in his lane. In March of the same year, the rapper started serving an eight-month jail sentence for criminal possession of a weapon. He even dropped a Lucious Lyon-esque incarcerated album, in a semi-successful attempt to erase the memory of his Fall Out Boy collaboration. Having ridden out more ups and downs than a Real Housewife during the Hamptons rosé shortage, Weezy remains a hip hop legend, and one of the best-selling artists of all time.

But on Sept. 3, the rapper tweeted, “I am now defenseless and mentally defeated and I leave gracefully and thankful I luh my fanz but I’m dun.” He continued, “Ain’t looking for sympathy, just serenity…I’m good y’all don’t trip.” In a new interview with commentator Skip Bayless on his Fox Sports 1 show Undisputed, Wayne confirmed his retirement with a caveat: He’ll get back to work, when and if Cash Money Records settles his alleged back pay. Or in Wayne’s words, “Gimme mine and I’ll walk free.”

This isn’t the first time Lil Wayne has trashed Cash Money. In 2014, the rapper fired shots at his mentor Birdman over a label dispute. After countless delays of Tha Carter V, the rapper’s fifth and final Carter album, Wayne broke down: “I want off this label and nothing to do with these people but unfortunately it ain’t that easy,” he wrote on Twitter. “I am a prisoner and so is my creativity.” The next year, Wayne confirmed the dissolution of his decade-long relationship with the label, filing a $51 million lawsuit against Cash Money. In the suit, Weezy claims that Birdman’s decision to delay Tha Carter V is in violation with his contract. He’s seeking to terminate his ties to Cash Money once and for all, taking his Young Money protégées with him—a roster that includes Drake and Nicki Minaj.

In the wake of Wayne’s onstage invocations to “Fuck Cash Money,” fans were not surprised to learn that Weezy and Birdman were no longer on speaking terms. In July 2015, the rapper released his album “Free Weezy” in an exclusive Tidal deal, rapping, “Rest in peace to the Cash Money Weezy / Gone but not forgotten.” Birdman and his entourage allegedly responded by pelting the Cash Money turncoat with drinks and water bottles from the VIP section of Miami’s Club LIV. And because Birdman and Lil Wayne are serious power players and not Love and Hip-Hop: Miami cast members, Birdman also sued Jay Z and Tidal, citing Cash Money’s exclusive rights to Lil Wayne’s music. In his first interview since the controversy began, Birdman told journalist Angie Martinez, “Wayne is my son no matter what. That ain’t never gonna change.”

Along with their daddy issues and hip-hop dynasty drama, Lil Wayne and Birdman also failed to distinguish their beef from an episode of Empire with a January 2016 club reconciliation. The duo returned to the room where it happened—Miami’s Club LIV—to make nice, with Birdman announcing, “This my motherfucking son, and I’ma die for him, I’ma live for him, and I’ll motherfucking kill for him. That ain’t never changed. YMCMB for life.” But off-brand Lucious Lyon stunting aside, Wayne and his mentor’s professional beef is still raw. The Cash Money lawsuit has reportedly hit an impasse, and fans are dubious that Weezy will be freed anytime soon. Still, like I always say, if Drake could wait seven years for Rihanna to text him back, you can wait another year or two for Tha Carter V. Maybe Wayne will follow the lead of other YMCMB discontents and ditch the label for Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music—we hear he’ll sign just about anyone these days.

But Wayne’s legal woes haven’t scared away his diehard fan base. After announcing his retirement via Twitter, the rapper received an immediate virtual outpouring. Chance the Rapper tweeted, “I just wanna remind you that absolutely nothing and no one in this world can defeat you. Tell them devils back back.” Missy Elliott joined in, adding, “Prayers up 4 whatever u may be enduring right now this too will pass & may u find PEACE…I will always be a fan of your work.” Even hip-hop’s resident bleach blonde super villain (there’s always one) got all up in his feelings: Chris Brown shared a picture with Wayne on his Instagram, captioned, “This man helped my career in so many ways and has inspired me to live life!!! FOREVER WILL BE THE GREATEST RAPPER ALIVE!!!! NONe OF YOU RAPPERS WOULDNT EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START. REALISTICALLY MOST OF YALL ARE HIS STUDENTS AND DONT WANT TO ADMIT IT!!!” I, for one, would not be comforted by Chris Brown screaming at me in caps lock, but I guess it’s the thought that counts.
Drake once again followed in Brown’s footsteps, Instagramming a tribute to the hip-hop trailblazer and promising, “We are fighting until you get yours. Freedom to drop music and peace of mind.” As one of the most profitable moving pieces in the ongoing Cash Money/Lil Wayne litigation, Drake’s support is invaluable. But the sweetest Weezy shout-out came by way of Kendrick Lamar, who posted a possibly under-the-influence video of himself rapping some early Lil Wayne lyrics, before begging, “N***as talking about retiring and shit. Fuck that! Retire, quitting rap, whatever you wanna call it…Fuck that!” The expletive-laden video gets even less quotable from there, but Lamar’s plea to his hip-hop idol strikes an emotional chord.

Lil Wayne’s ‘Retirement’ and How His War Against Birdman Got This Far

Before you join the masses wailing in the streets and rending Yeezy garments apart, take solace in the fact that Lil Wayne is no recluse. The rapper performed on the Made in America festival stage just hours after his Twitter retirement. He also debuted a theme song he created for Undisputed. And just a few days ago, Wayne released a full track called “Grateful” featuring Gudda Gudda. The song swells and sermonizes about a new chapter in Weezy’s life, bragging, “They can’t put no more Weezy Baby out, that’s that Cash Money vasectomy.”


Ditching Birdman once and for all seems like the only way for Wayne to spread his wings and soar—ideally, not toward another rock album. That being said, Weezy’s personal demons are as numerous as his ongoing litigations. The 33-year-old suffers from epilepsy, and his frequent health problems have been increasingly well covered—this summer alone, Wayne likely suffered three seizures in just four weeks. It doesn’t take a team of detectives to draw a connection between Wayne’s hospital visits and his predilection for Lean, a thick cocktail that consists of promethazine, codeine cough syrup, and, for the more culinary-inclined connoisseur, Jolly Ranchers to taste. According to an addiction specialist, sippers gradually increase their Lean tolerance, and have to drink more to get their desired high. The more Lean you drink, the more likely you are to suffer some of the more serious effects, such as seizures. In June, Wayne allegedly downed three 16-oz bottles of Lean just hours before suffering multiple seizures aboard his private jet. We’re all for Kendrick’s heartfelt mash-up, but maybe one of Weezy’s acolytes should be telling their epileptic idol to step away from the codeine? Clearly, the opiate is starting to go to his head.

Russell Simmons Offers Brandon Marshall Endorsement Deal

NFL linebacker Brandon Marshall has found a supporter who can offer him more than his sympathies, following reports that a second Marshall sponsor has pulled its endorsement in response to his recent protest of the National Anthem.

Russell Simmons Offers Brandon Marshall Endorsement Deal

Music mogul Russell Simmons took to Instagram upon learning the news on Tuesday [September 13], and extended Marshall an opportunity to recoup some of his lost bucks while he continues to stand for what he believes in.

Russell Simmons Offers Brandon Marshall Endorsement Deal

“Which other company is supporting Brandon? It says two endorsements,” Simmons asked followers, before jumping the gun on a possible partnership. “RUSHCARD is in. We will find Brandon and make him an offer and make him a deal.”

Russell Simmons Offers Brandon Marshall Endorsement Deal

Marshall is one of the players who has followed Colin Kaepernick‘s lead in bringing a call for the nation to address racial injustice, to the NFL in 2016. In fact, while Kaepernick sparked the movement back in August, Marshall was the first to abstain from observing the anthem during the regular season, rallying various players around the league to continue joining after he took a knee during the star-spangled banner before the year’s inaugural game against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday.

Within 24 hours of staging his dissent, Marshall’s partnership with Air Academy Federal Credit Union was severed. On Monday came news of another voided endorsement, when CenturyLink announced it’s parting from Marshall. Interestingly enough, CenturyLink is the sponsor of CenturyLink Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks themselves have had an overt presence among the league’s protesters, demonstrating with interlocked arms during pre-game ceremonies on Sunday. There has been no word as to whether CenturyLink plans on punishing the Seattle team, but the company’s maneuver could none the less spell out inhibition among players who are planning to protest, as it’s reached over the sport includes a partnership with DirecTV.


Janet Jackson Ordered On Bedrest For High Risk Pregnancy

Janet Jackson has only been seen out in public once since announcing her pregnancy, but it’s not just doctor’s orders keeping her in hiding.


Insiders told OK! Magazine that the 50-year-old expectant mother has been staying at home with her husband Wissam Al Mana because she’s on bed rest! Sources claim she “has ballooned to 250 pounds,” and ordered to stay at home because she’s “at risk for serious complications.” “This pregnancy is doing a number on her,” added the insider.


Janet is also struggling over her appearance as she prepares for her first child and the source claimed “she didn’t want anyone to see that she was already getting huge” when she was photographed in July.
So far, Jackson has not revealed the gender of her child and her brother Tito Jackson said in June that she’s merely “hoping for a healthy baby”.


Mother Teresa Declared a Saint

Mother Teresa, a Catholic nun who devoted her life to helping India’s poor, has been declared a saint in a canonization Mass held by Pope Francis in the Vatican.

Mother Teresa Declared a Saint

Pope Francis delivered the formula for the canonization of the Albanian-born nun — known as the “saint of the gutters” — before huge crowds of pilgrims gathered in St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City on Sunday morning. Applause broke out before he completed the formula of canonization, in which he declared “Blessed Teresa of Calcutta to be a saint.”

Mother Teresa Declared a Saint
India renamed the city of Calcutta to Kolkata in 2001 to match the Bengali pronunciation. But the church uses the spelling of Calcutta in its references to Mother Teresa.

Speaking in Latin, Francis said that “after due deliberation and frequent prayer for divine assistance, and having sought the counsel of many of our brother bishops, we declare and define Blessed Teresa of Calcutta to be a saint, and we enroll her among the saints, decreeing that she is to be venerated as such by the whole church.”
Catholics — including hundreds of blue- and white-robed nuns from the Missionaries of Charity sisterhood founded by Mother Teresa — had gathered from around the world to attend the canonization of the church’s newest saint, just 19 years after her death.

Mother Teresa Declared a Saint

A huge portrait of Mother Teresa, whom the church credits with having performed two miraculous cures of the sick, hung from St. Peter’s Basilica during the colorful ceremony.

Mother Teresa Declared a Saint
Pope Francis then delivered a homily, in which he praised Mother Teresa — “this emblematic figure of womanhood and of consecrated life” — for her charitable work.
“Mother Teresa, in all aspects of her life, was a generous dispenser of divine mercy, making herself available for everyone through her welcome and defense of human life, those unborn and those abandoned and discarded,” he said.

Mother Teresa Declared a Saint
“She bowed down before those who were spent, left to die on the side of the road, seeing in them their God-given dignity. She made her voice heard before the powers of this world, so that they might recognize their guilt for the crime of poverty they created.”

For the newly-sainted Teresa, he said, “mercy was the salt which gave flavor to her work, it was the light which shone in the darkness of the many who no longer had tears to shed for their poverty and suffering.” She was an example to volunteers around the world, he said. “May she be your model of holiness.”

Mother Teresa Declared a Saint
In a departure from his scripted remarks, he noted that people “may struggle” to refer to her as “Saint Teresa.” “With great spontaneity, I think we will continue to call her Mother Teresa,” he said.
Prayers were then delivered in a number of languages, including Albanian, Mother Teresa’s native tongue, and Bengali, the language of Kolkata, where a special Mass was celebrated at the Missionaries of Charity Sunday. A prayer was delivered in Chinese for persecuted Christians around the world.
About 1,500 homeless people from across Italy were bused into the Vatican to be given seats of honor at the Mass — and be served a pizza lunch by nuns afterward.


Beyonce’s Car-Smashing Music Video “Hold Up”

It was certainly the most visually striking chapter from Lemonade.


And to mark her 35th birthday on Sunday, Beyonce finally released the music video to Hold Up. While Sorry was the song that introduced the world to Becky With The Good Hair, Hold Up was the song they saw Bey unleash her fury at her, taking it out on some unlucky cars.


The two-part video opens with her Denial interlude poem, the visual which sees her float in a completely submerged bedroom, watching her sleeping self. Segueing into the song, she opens the doors wearing the exquisite layered yellow dress as the waters gushes out behind her.


Borrowing a baseball bat from a child, she proceeds to smash her way along the street, shattering car windows and busting in doors and rooves. Her mood swings just as wildly, with he smiling and laughing one second, and wailing through gritted teeth the next.
