Kanye West Wanted For Attempted Robbery

spl580597_001

Kanye West is being sought for questioning by the Los Angeles Police Department for apparently an attempted robbery and assault on a paparazzi at Los Angeles International Airport that was caught on tape.

The mega star rapper was leaving the airport when a large amount of paparazzi’s were photographing him and asking him “Why can’t we talk to you”. After enough of the badgering, Kanye lost his temper and charged one of the paparazzi and pinned him against a taxi attempting to take the photographers camera.

After a brief scuffle the assault was broken up by what appears to be a police officer, letting West get into his awaiting Mercedes-Benz as the photographer somewhat limps/runs off.

The photographer was later taken to the hospital for unspecified injuries.

According to TMZ, the police are filing the case as an attempted robbery charge, which is a felony in the state of California.

Kanye was recently captured on video with another paparazzi ranting about his privacy when the photographer told him he loved him. Kanye began to lose his cool saying “I appreciate that but don’t talk but don’t talk to me. I don’t want to hear paparazzi talk to me or anybody I know. And tell everybody never talk to anyone that anyone knows. Don’t talk to themselves. Don’t talk ever again.” At this point and time there is no connection between the two paparazzi’s.

The Los Angeles Airport Police later released a statement in regards to the matter saying:

“Today at approximately 2:00 p.m., at the Tom Bradley International Terminal (on the arrival level curbside), Los Angeles Airport Police officers were flagged down by a citizen (photographer) who alleged that he was taking pictures of an individual when he was battered by the subject. The alleged subject was not at the location nor was he observed by officers at the scene. LAFD was notified, responded to the location and transported the victim to a local hospital for medical attention. A police report was taken by the Los Angeles Police Department and the investigation is ongoing.”

Video – The Griffins will meet The Simpsons in fall 2014 episode of Family Guy

simpsons_familyguy_crossover_dw

We thought we we’d never live to see the day that Family Guy’s Griffin family met Bart’s bunch from The Simpsons, but that day is rapidly approaching. TVLine has learned that in a fall 2014 episode of Family Guy, Peter & Co. pay a visit to Springfield, where they’ll be befriended by Homer & Co.

It doesn’t matter in the least to Homer that Peter is (in his jaundiced eyes) albino — in no time, the plus-sized pals are drinking brews and debating whether Duff or Pawtucket is the better beer. Meanwhile, Stewie is charmed by Bart’s old-school mischief; Lisa makes it her mission to find Meg’s talent (good luck with that!); and Marge and Lois become bosom buddies.

What do you think? Can the crossover possibly be good enough to satisfy fans of both shows? Is it destined to be an insta-classic?

THE SIMPSONS: Flanders faces unbearable guilt after punching Homer in the eye and resorts to a biblical adage to reconcile with him in the “Black-Eyed, Please” episode of THE SIMPSONS airing Sunday, March 10 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX. THE SIMPSONS ™ and © 2013 TCFFC ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

Mumbai Dance Bars Get Green Light

OB-YE921_idance_G_20130716085732

India’s top court Tuesday overturned an eight-year ban on dance bars in Mumbai by the Maharashtra state government, which said they were degrading and exploited women.

The Supreme Court’s decision upheld a 2006 ruling by the Bombay High Court that said the ban was discriminatory. The groups contesting the ban also said it violated their constitutional right to earn a living.

The government of Maharashtra in 2005 prohibited performances in dance bars, typically restaurants and pubs serving liquor, where owners pay dancers. Patrons can pay the dancers too, via a waiter. Patrons cannot touch the dancers, the petitioners said, according to court documents.

The Indian Hotel and Restaurants Association, the Association of Dance Bar Owners and the Bharatiya Bargirls Union were among those who challenged the state government’s ban in 2005. According to the petitioners, there were 2,500 dance bars in 2005 employing 75,000 women. The state government, however, said there were 307 licensed dance bars in Mumbai with around 4,300 women employed as dancers, waitresses and singers.

The petitioners said the state government’s ban was discriminatory because dance performances were allowed in other places like higher-end hotels and theaters. They also said women dancers wore traditional Indian clothes like sarees and that performances weren’t vulgar.

Women working at dance bars protested against the ban on performances in dance bars in Mumbai, May 3, 2005.

In a reply to the petition, the state argued that dance performances were degrading and that women were being exploited for financial gain by bar owners, according to court documents. The state also said dance bars were detrimental to public health, fostered prostitution and crime, and created problems in the daily life of the customers.

“The provisions are intended to abolish evil and immoral practices,” the state said in response to the 2005 petition.

The ban on dance bars was one of several steps authorities in Mumbai, India’s financial and entertainment capital, have taken to clamp down on perceived immoral behavior. Last year, police official Vasant Dhoble made headlines after a series of raids on bars, restaurants and hotels.

In one case, law enforcement officials raided the home of a 53-year-old woman on the grounds that she lacked necessary permits for making liquor-filled chocolates.

“We do not see as to why when women dance to earn their livelihood, it becomes exploitation,” the Bombay High Court said when it overturned the state government’s ban on dance bars in April 2006.

The Maharashtra government asked for a stay on the High Court’s order and appealed to the Supreme Court of India. The case in the Supreme Court started in 2006.

Following the top court’s ruling Tuesday, restaurants and bars will have to apply for new licenses before they restart dance performances, according to Veena Thadhani, a lawyer for the Indian Hotel and Restaurant Association. The licenses were canceled in 2005.

“The government’s ban had struck down an entire industry,” Shashikant Shetty, head of the Indian Hotel and Restaurants Association of India, told India Real Time. “This is a relief for a lot of people,” he said.

Saudi Princess’ Servant Case: Prosecutor Likens Allegations Against Meshael Alayban To ‘Slavery’

Meshael Alayban

By Dana Feldman (Reuters)

SANTA ANA, Calif., July 11 (Reuters) – A Saudi princess charged with bringing a Kenyan woman to the United States as a domestic servant and holding her against her will could face more charges, a California prosecutor who likened the case to “slavery” said on Thursday.

Meshael Alayban, 42, was arrested on human trafficking charges at her apartment in suburban Irvine early on Wednesday after authorities say the alleged victim escaped from the residence and flagged down a bus driver.

Alayban is charged with bringing the Kenyan woman to the United States in May, confiscating her passport and paying her $220 a month to work 16 hours a day, seven days per week, while essentially holding her captive in the apartment complex.

The princess, described as a wife of Saudi Prince Abdulrahman bin Nasser bin Abdulaziz al Saud, was released from Orange County Jail on Thursday afternoon after posting $5 million bail.

But Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas said it was possible she would face additional state or federal charges.

When police went to Alayban’s apartment in Irvine, about 50 miles (80 km) southeast of Los Angeles, they found four Filipino women believed to be working there whose status was unclear.

“It’s been 150 years since the Emancipation Proclamation so slavery has been illegal in the United States and certainly in California all this time. It’s disappointing to see it in use here,” Rackauckas said.

The princess made a brief appearance in Orange County Superior Court in Santa Ana on Thursday, standing in a caged area for criminal defendants and wearing blue jail garb, her dark hair pulled back.

An arraignment hearing in the case was postponed until July 29 at the request of defense attorneys, and Alayban spoke only to respond, “Yes, your honor” when asked by Superior Court Judge Gregg Prickett if she understood her rights.

The judge denied a request by an attorney for the alleged victim that Alayban’s bail in the case be revoked or raised to $20 million, but ordered her to surrender her passport, remain in Orange County and wear a GPS device to monitor her whereabouts.

Rackauckas said the alleged victim in the case, who is around 30 years old and worked for Alayban in Saudi Arabia for a year before being brought to California, was under protective custody and was expected to remain in the United States to testify in the case.

He said the case was the first prosecuted in Orange County under California’s voter-approved Proposition 35, which toughens penalties for human trafficking. (Writing by Dan Whitcomb; Editing by Cynthia Johnston, Andrew Hay and Lisa Shumaker

Jay-Z Forces RIAA To Change Policy

jay-z-doug-morris-rapradar

Old rules were made to be broken. In light of Samsung purchasing a million digital copies of Jay-Z’sMagna Carta Holy Grail, the RIAA has decided to change their certification policy. In a blog post, RIAA Director Liz Kennedy says:

We think it’s time for the RIAA – and Gelfand, Rennert & Feldman – to align our digital song and album certification requirements.  That’s why today we are officially updating this rule in our G&P Program requirements.  Going forward, sales of albums in digital format will become eligible on the release date, while sales of albums in physical format will still become eligible for certification 30 days after the release date.

This is truly ground breaking. Instead of waiting a month for a gold or platinum certification, an artist can partner with a Fortune 500 company and buy over 500,000 albums in one full swoop . For an artist like Jay-Z, this is perfect. He cuts out the middleman and gets paid upfront. Not to mention, no leaks neither. Don’t be surpised to see more deals like this in the future. Bullshit with rap if you want, muthafuckas.
