Lights Out: Adele – “Someone Like You”
Any normal celebrity couple would answer to the rumors that their marriage has been drowned in a pool of crotch nectar from the husband’s side piece by issuing a simple statement that reads: “True” or “Not true” or “Your business: mind it.” But Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore aren’t even in the same universe as normal and have answered to the rumors on their Twitter pages. Demi quoted Greek philosopher Epictetus days before Star Magazine said her marriage was lying on a table in the morgue.
“When we are offended at any man’s fault, turn to yourself & study your own failings. Then you will forget your anger.”
Then Ashton Tweeted a link to his Spotify account where Public Enemy’s “Don’t Believe The Hype” plays. A few days before Ashton’s Tweet, Demi Tweeted the picture above of her doing an impression of the current catatonic state of her marriage and she added the note: “I see through you.”

After being subject to a 36 million pound tainted turkey recall in August, Cargill is at it again.
Earlier this year, Cargill meat processing was forced to recall 36 million pounds of salmonella tainted turkey. Controversy erupted when it came out that both Cargill and the USDA knew about the contamination a full year before the products were pulled from shelves. The diseased product killed 1 person and sickened 77 others before officials decided to act.
The recalls continue as the company announces that new cases of salmonella contamination in their turkey products require 185,000 additional pounds of potentially contaminated turkey be destroyed. Cargill took steps to sanitize their facilities after the last recall but suspect the salmonella may be resistant to antibiotics.
Some meat companies can’t bear to part with recalled products and end up taking them off shelves, cooking them, and stuffing them in other products. In 2009, ConAgra foods took recalled E.Coli contaminated beef and stuck it in cans of chili.
Recycled meat can’t be any worse the burgers made of human feces, right?
Lil Wayne covers Vibe Magazine, October/November issue, check out an excerpt below:
WAYNE ON JAY-Z AND “THE OLD GUYS”
“There’s no competition [with any artists]. Music isn’t about competition no more. All the gangster rappers are happy, all the skateboard rappers are happy, all the white rappers are happy… Everybody just happy to do music these days. There are no problems. That shit died a long time ago with them old-ass rappers. We are just making music, making money and having fun feeding our families. Competition is for the old guys.”
VIBE: You say competition is for the “old guys,” but it sounds like you’re going at Jay-Z with that line, “I got your baby money/Kidnap your bitch, get that how-much-you-love-your-lady money.” Are we looking at it the wrong way?
LIL WAYNE: I know for a fact, music is about perception. You can’t do anything but perceive what you hear. If I know that for a fact, I can never be upset about someone’s reaction to it. I’m not gonna say I don’t know what will happen before I say it [on record]. I do know what will happen. I am aware of it. It is what it is.
VIBE: So you knew the repercussions of going after Jay before anything even happened?
LIL WAYNE: Well, I’m a man. I believe as a man you should know that. Every man should know the repercussions and consequences behind whatever they do before they do it. And of course, I know there won’t be any repercussions behind what I did.
WAYNE ON LOOKING AT DRAKE AS COMPETITION:
VIBE: You mentioned how humbled you were at the success of “She Will.” Drake, who wrote and performs the song’s chorus, has now become a platinum star in his own right. Do you look at the guy and say, “Wow, I helped create a monster, I have to stay on my toes”?
LIL WAYNE: I don’t look at it like that. Drake is my artist. If he wasn’t my artist, then yeah maybe. But that’s my artist. He’s not [just] a friend. We’re more than friends. It’s business. It would be impossible for it to be a competition. I mean, I’m the guy’s boss.
WAYNE ON HIP-HOP INFLUENCING THE LONDON RIOTS:
VIBE: Given that Cash Money artist Jay Sean is a native of the U.K., you probably have some strong feelings about the London riots and how some talking heads blamed it on hip-hop culture.
LIL WAYNE: All you could do is pray for the people that were dealing with the situation and hope for the best. As far as them blaming hip-hop, you can blame Jesus for things, so you can’t really fault anybody for blaming someone or something. All you can do is hope for the best.
