Drake Trolls Joe Budden Over Annual Pool Party on Live – See the Comments

The ‘Hotline Bling’ hitmaker further ups his trolling by not only playfully dissing Joe, but also Pusha T who is known to have longstanding beefs with the ‘God’s Plan’ rapper.

AceShowbizJoe Budden hosted his annual summer pool party at his New Jersey home on Saturday, August 24. During the bash, the rapper-turned-podcast-host went on Instagram Live to share a sneak peek at his party which was only attended by who were lucky to get an invite.

Flexing his event on the broadcast, Joe was later joined the session by Drake who didn’t hesitate to playfully troll his onetime rival. The “Hotline Bling” hitmaker first left a comment demanding Rory. “We want Rory! We want Rory!” Drake wrote in the comment, prompting Joe to explain Rory and Drake’s love-hate relationship.

Drizzy didn’t stop there with his trolling. He went throwing some major shade by requesting the DJ to play Joe’s diss tracks. “I wanna see if they ring off,” he wrote, referring to “Making a Murderer, Pt. 1”, “Wake”, “Afraid” and “Just Because”. In response to the playful diss, Joe said, “That’s not nice, Drake.”

Drake further upped his trolling by not only playfully dissing Joe, but also Pusha T who is known to have longstanding beefs with the “God’s Plan” rapper. “Play ‘Story of Adidon’ right now and see if it rings off. I promise the only person that’s gonna know the words is Rob Markman,” he wrote, referencing to Genius’ Head of Artist Relations.

Rob apparently noticed the comment as he tweeted, “Of couse the Genius knows the lyrics.”

Back to the Live broadcast, another comment from Drake, meanwhile, read, ” ‘Pump It Up’ will send that Air BNB into a frenzy on God.” Joe replied with a laugh, “And you know it would, n***a. Don’t play. I’ll turn that s**t on. ‘Pump It Up’ birthed you n****s.”

Before ending his broadcast, Joe addressed Drake once and for all. “Don’t come in here and hurt my feelings,” he said. “My dog just died. My birthday is next week. I don’t have time for these shenanigans.”

Urban Meyer dishes takes on everything college football

Former Florida and Ohio State coach Urban Meyer has gone from the sideline to the studio with Fox Sports, and shares his thoughts on elite coaches and quarterbacks in a Q&A session with Post columnist Steve Serby.

Q: What are some compelling storylines this season?

A: We can go a lot of different ways, but can anybody unseat the two teams that have been kinda dominant the last three years? And that’s Alabama, Clemson. They have favorable schedules and they have returning quarterbacks, so that could be a tall task.

Q: Who might be a sleeper team this year?

A: I like LSU because I just know how they recruit. I like their quarterback (Joe Burrow), obviously he was mine for a while, and ours at Ohio State. But they have to play at Alabama and they’re in the same division. I’m very biased, I won’t consider ’em a sleeper, I think Ohio State will be right in this thing.

Q: Thoughts on Notre Dame this season.
A: I like them. I recruited against them now for many years and they’ve really done a good job in recruiting. And I think Brian Kelly’s one of the very underrated coaches in America, he’s excellent. You just don’t know about their schedule. You don’t know who’s gonna pop up and be a tough team. I believe they have Georgia this year, and our rival, the team up north.

Q: Georgia?
A: I think they’ve recruited as well as anybody the last two, three years. It’s all about recruiting and development, I think. Right now they’re the best recruiting team in the East.

Q: Oregon?
A: It’s kinda taken the lead in the Pac-12, I’ve noticed, in recruiting. Mario Cristobal, I’ve known of him and know him, and he always has been labeled an elite recruiter and their quarterback’s back (Justin Herbert). I’d have to say them and Washington are the top teams in the Pac-12.

Q: What kind of a pro will Tua (Tagovailoa) make?
A: I think he’s gonna be outstanding. He’s still gotta develop on his accuracy … he’s got all the tools to be a very good pro.

Q: Why will his game translate to the NFL?
A: I get a little defensive when I hear that, that that’s the NFL coach’s job to make sure it translates. When I hear someone say, “Well he’s a college quarterback in a college system,” well change your system in the NFL to match ’em. It’s no different than you have J.T. Barrett and Dwayne Haskins, they couldn’t be a more different player, so we adapted the system to fit Dwayne Haskins. So I think they do what that kid can do best. And, the great coaches in the NFL adapt systems to their players. Others fail at it.

Q: Oregon’s Justin Herbert?

A: I’m still studying him. I was surprised he came back. I think he was very NFL-ready, not knowing him. But what I’ve watched of him on film, great arm strength, great release point and all the tools. I just don’t know the intangibles of him yet.

Q: Georgia’s Jake Fromm?
A: Excellent quarterback. His skill set has still gotta improve in several areas, but everything I hear about him he’s an elite leader, and that’s who you want running your team.

Q: Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence?
A: I have not seen many with the arm strength and accuracy, especially as young as he was last year. I think he’s as good as there is.
Q: Does he remind you of anybody at a similar stage?

A: Well, we had one last year who had the same type of accuracy I see out of Trevor is Dwayne Haskins. His ball gets out fast and it’s very accurate.

Q: How good of a pro will Haskins be?
A: So many times a great quarterback gets stuck on a bad team, and it’s a quarterback’s fault. Dwayne had really good receivers, really good personnel around him. A lot of these quarterbacks are very talented, but do they have the right system and right people around ’em? I think he’ll be a great pro if he has the right people and the right system.

Q: What is he like as a leader?
A: He was above average at the beginning, and by the end of the year he was exceptional. I went and watched Tom Brady practice, and what separates guys … and they said Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, and the Tebows and my greatest leaders weren’t just leaders during a game, but really when it counted was at practice. And Dwayne really got good at that as his career winded down at Ohio State.

Q: Kyler Murray?
A: I think he’s a dynamic athlete. Great respect for him as a player, I’m gonna be intrigued to see how this thing works out.

Q: Your fondest game memory of Tim Tebow?

A: I’d have to say in that second half of the national championship against Oklahoma. He took over the game. My recommendation to the offensive coordinator was very simple — keep the ball in Tim’s hands.

Q: What made Urban Meyer so successful?

A: I think genuine care of his players.

Q: It had to be more than that.
A: I had a good way of surrounding myself with really talented people — good recruiting, and if you look at my assistant coaches over the years that have become head coaches, so good eye for talent and pushing people to their limits.

Q: Where does your 7-0 mark against Michigan rank for you?
A: That’s either 1 or 1A or 1B.

Q: Or all of the above?
A: Yeah … I’d probably say that’s 1.

Q: Which one of your three national championships was the sweetest?
A: That’s hard to say. I think the most recent one’s the one I remember the most because a third-string quarterback (Cardale Jones) and the way that team overcame the injuries that they did. But I loved all three, obviously.

Q: What criticism has been the most unfair about you?
A: I don’t know, I don’t try to pay attention to criticism other than from, like, athletic directors or players or something so I don’t really get involved in that. If someone would ever question a genuine care question for a student athlete, which I don’t know if I’ve ever heard that.

Q: Any regrets?
A: I have the regret, the most recent one (three-game 2018 suspension) about going too far trying to help an assistant coach (domestic abuse allegations involving then-Ohio State receivers coach Zach Smith), a family, that at the time I thought was correct. But other than that, not really.

Q: Nick Saban?

A: Winner.

Q: What makes him a winner?

A: Very detailed. You hear him talk about The Process. To stay consistent at the top is a great tribute to him in his career.

Q: Ryan Day?

A: Elite football acumen. He understands the game very well. As important, understands people and how to motivate.

Q: Dabo Swinney?
A: Just seems like he’s balanced.

Q: Earle Bruce?
A: Toughness.

Q: Lou Holtz?
A: Encyclopedia.

Q: Lincoln Riley?
A: I don’t know him, but I know of him and admire what he’s done, to take over for a legend like Bob Stoops and keep it going and even maybe in some respects made it stronger, which is not easy to do.

Q: How do you see the pairing of him and his new quarterback?

A: I look forward to watching that because we actually were taking a look at (Jalen) Hurts when we looking at the potential quarterback transfers. We studied Hurts, (Brandon) Wimbish and (Justin) Fields in great detail. I just also admire Hurts the way he handled that whole situation with Tua.

Q: Who are some of the other dynamic players that college football fans should look forward to watching?
A: The tailback at Wisconsin’s elite, (Jonathan) Taylor. He’s on course to break Ron Dayne’s records, and just an incredible player. I think Donovan Peoples-Jones has been a guy that, when given enough opportunities to touch the ball will become an All-American, and from what I understand, that’s the whole premise why (Michigan) changed offenses, and they have three outstanding receivers led by Peoples-Jones. I think he’s one of the best players in America that just hasn’t touched the ball enough.

Q: Defensive players?

A: Well once again I’m biased, I know him better than anybody is Chase Young, I think he’ll be a defensive top-10 draft pick.

Q: Who are the guys from last year’s college football season other than Haskins who you think will make an impact in the pros?
A: I think (Devin) Bush from the team up north, the linebacker. … Parris Campbell, he wasn’t a first-round draft pick, he’s got first-round talent, first-round work ethic.

Q: Nick Bosa?
A: Impact player, he’s just gotta stay healthy.

Q: What’s the difference between him and Joey Bosa?

A: About an inch in height, that’s it. They walk down the hallway, they look alike. They play with the same tenacity and the same skill set with power and speed.

Q: The best college football team you ever saw?

A: I’d have to say the ’08 Gators. I’m very biased.

Q: What was it about that team?
A: It’s filled with NFL talent, and I’ve never seen a team go through the SEC like they did, I mean, we were beating teams by three touchdowns in the Southeastern Conference — good teams.

Q: How saddened were you by the way the Aaron Hernandez tragedy unfolded?
A: My family and I were very close to him, and we were devastated.

Q: The state of the college game today?
A: It’s healthy and strong as it’s ever been. The safety, the changes that have been made, the way we practice, the way we protect players has been a very positive. And the rules changes to protect players. So very healthy, the crowds, the energy, the attention.

Q: Leaders you admire and why?
A: One of the first ones is Bill Belichick, who is a consistent leader. He’s a winner. And he knows how to handle people. I think Phil Knight at Nike is a leader I’ve always admired. And he’s a leader that still has a foundation of his faith and family. A lot of times leaders have become overwhelmed with their responsibility, and I’ve always admired that about him.

Q: Other than Belichick, head coaches in other sports you admire?
A: I’ve always admired Joe Maddon, I was friends with him when he was at the Tampa Bay Rays and obviously I thought he was a unique leader, and he’s done a great job in Chicago. Billy Donovan was my neighbor at Gainesville, and I loved the way he led his team and still does to this day.

Q: What traits would make up the ideal Urban Meyer football player?
A: Fierce, elite competitor above all. Refuse to lose. And toughness.

Q: You could pick the brain of any head coach in college football history?
A: Knute Rockne.

Q: Boyhood idols?

A: Pete Rose, I was a big Red Machine guy. Davey Concepcion ’cause I was a shortstop. Isaac Curtis and Charlie Joiner and Ken Anderson.

Q: Why didn’t you pursue baseball?
A: I did pursue it. At some point, baseball didn’t pursue me anymore.

Q: Three dinner guests?
A: John F. Kennedy; General Patton; Woody Hayes.

Q: How good of a football coach would Patton have been?
A: Well who knows nowadays ’cause it’s a whole different animal, but in his day he would have been elite. Would he have been able to adapt to a new way of coaching, a new way of teaching?

Q: What was it you admired about Woody Hayes?
A: His genuine care.

Q: JFK?
A: I just have studied him quite a bit and I just think, especially the civil rights era and then also his ability to stand up in the Cold War, the decisions he made as Russia was headed toward Cuba, and the guts that had to take.

Q: Favorite movie?

A: Hunt For Red October.

Q: Favorite actor?

A: Denzel Washington.

Q: Favorite actress?
A: Julia Roberts.

Q: Favorite singer/entertainer?

A: Jimmy Buffett.

Q: Favorite meal?
A: Grouper.

Q: I assume you’ll miss the adrenaline rush of being on the sidelines?
A: Of course.

Q: Describe what that’s like, standing on the sidelines coaching against Michigan.
A: Well there’s the incredible, enormous feel of responsibility. You own it, your name’s on it. So the way I always approached, especially that game or those type of big games like that, to say that it’s enjoyable, you are so focused on making sure that every “i” is dotted, every “t” is crossed, those players have a chance to win it.

Q: Working in the studio for Fox’s “Big Noon Kickoff” with Reggie Bush, Brady Quinn and Matt Leinart premiering Saturday?
A: I’m excited. I’d always liked the studio. I’m really excited about the group they put me with, big-time names, very recent relevance in the game of college football.

Q: How scary have your health scares been?
A: The one in 2014 was alarming.

Q: What was going through your gut at that point?

A: When they said we’re gonna have brain surgery, that obviously causes you to pause for a moment and make sure that everything’s in order and you start thinking about your family and that you’re doing everything right by them.

Q: So you must feel like a lucky guy in a lot of ways, right?
A: I do. I feel very lucky, very blessed to be able to have done what I did for so long and still have an incredible family and have your health.

Q: Could you one day see yourself returning to the sideline?
A: At this point I don’t see it. I believe I’m done.

Miranda Lambert & Maren Morris Are The New ‘Thelma & Louise’ On New Song ‘Too Pretty For Prison’ – Listen

If you’re sad about ‘Orange Is The New Black’ ending, Miranda Lambert has a new song that’ll cheer you up. She teamed up with Maren Morris for ‘Too Pretty For Prison,’ the next single from her new album, and it’s so good, it’s criminal!

Miranda Lambert, 35, gave her fans yet another reason to be excited about her upcoming album. After releasing “Mess With My Head,” “It All Comes Out in the Wash,” “Locomotive,” and “Bluebird,” she dropped another single from her next record, Wildcard, on Aug. 26, and it’s bound to steal the crown of “Song Of The Summer” away from “Senorita,” “Old Town Road,” and, well, “Hot Girl Summer.” Thankfully, if Miranda and Maren Morris, 29, get caught, they won’t serve any time, as the name of the collab between they’re “Too Pretty For Prison.” The catchy tune has the ladies singing about a cheating man, and teasing with the idea of committing murder by slipping arsenic in his drink — hence the prison reference.

“But we’re way too pretty for prison, hard time ain’t our kind of living,” the ladies hilariously sing on the song. “I don’t wanna talk about the way the jumpsuits wash us out,” they conclude, reminding us that yes — fashion does come first. The fun jam also reminds listeners that prison is also missing chardonnay, rhinestones, and, most importantly, cute boys to buy them drinks.

Wildcard is due out on Nov. 1, and the album may be Miranda’s most personal one yet. Case in point, the song “Too Pretty For Prison” is based on a girls’ night with Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild. “This new record has so many little details on it that become my favorites every time I listen, but one of those details is a fellow Texan and labelmate,” Miranda told iHeartRadio in July. “My friend Maren Morris sang on a song with me that I also wrote with The Love Junkies, and I knew from the second we were writing it that I would love to have Maren on it. It popped in my head right away before the song was even done. So, I asked her to come in and sing on it.

“It’s such a girl anthem, it’s called ‘Too Pretty For Prison,’ and it was actually inspired by Karen Fairchild,” explains Miranda. “We were having a wine night, and I always tell all of my friends leaving, ‘Don’t leave if you’ve been drinking, because you’re too pretty for prison.’ So, thanks Karen, for sharing that wine bottle with me and for taking an Uber.”

Karen from Little Big Town isn’t the only significant influence on Miranda’s new record. Her new husband, NYC Police officer Brendan McLoughlin and the City That Never Sleeps have both made an impact on Miranda’s music. “This record has a lot of little rock ‘n’ roll influences in it,” she told Billboard. “I think spending a lot of time in New York City kind of brought that into my art. I’ve also been on a huge rock ‘n’ roll kick lately. I’ve been on a Fleetwood Mac, Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin kick, so I think some of that’s reflected as well.”

“I love that about that city — you can kind of just walk down the street and stumble into somewhere that has something amazing happening,” she added. ”I love the energy of that city and just the inspiration you can get if you look for it.”

Power Season 6 Premiere Recap: Angela's Fate Revealed!

Warning: This post contains major spoilers from Power‘s Season 6 premiere.

Ladies and gentlemen, James St. Patrick isn’t the only ghost in Power‘s Season 6 premiere.

Yes, even though Assistant United States Attorney Angela Valdes appears in a trailer for the crime drama’s final season — and I’ll admit it, I fell for thinking that she’d survive the direct hit she sustained at the end of the Season 5 finale —  she’s dead. Super dead. Absolutely-not-coming-back-from-this-dead.

Meanwhile, the stage is set for Ghost and Tommy’s final (?) confrontation, which gets off to a bullet-ridden start before the latter even really knows it’s begun.

Read on for the highlights of “Murderers.”

IT’S ALREADY TOO LATE | The episode opens moments after the events of the finale, with Angela whisked to the hospital via ambulance. Ghost is freaking out, but he pulls it together enough to dodge questions by the cops on the scene. No, he didn’t see the shooter, he tells them, and they are understandably dubious. He flashes back to various moments in his adult relationship with Angela, but his reverie is interrupted by the arrival of her sister, Paz, who screams that he’s a murderer.

Elsewhere, Tommy makes a beeline to Tasha: He needs an alibi, and he wants her to provide one. “Wait a f—king minute: Who were you there to kill?” she asks, realization dawning. “Ghost tricked me into killing my father. You think I’m gonna let some s—t like that just slide?” he counters. Ooh, Tasha is HOT. “You took a shot at the devil, and you missed!” she rebukes him, adding that if he wants her to vouch for his whereabouts at the time of the shooting, he needs to fix things between him and Ghost.

PROOF OF DEATH | In case we had any doubt about whether or not Angela is really dead, the news is stated outright at an emergency meeting of the AUSA’s office. A stunned Saxe, Robinson and Donovan grieve for about 30 seconds before launching into the game of who’s most to blame for their coworker’s death (and Greg’s… and Mike’s…). Eventually, Saxe says he’ll take the lead on figuring out who killed Angie.

Throughout their discussion, I can’t help but hold onto a small thread of suspicion that Angela isn’t really gone for good. I mean, for a woman in the pickle she was in, a lil’ faked death could do a world of good, and isn’t there SOME way that SOME Fed got to her and convinced her to play possum for the sake of the investigation (and maybe a little legal clemency, to boot)? But all of those thoughts evaporate in the next scene, when Paz sits with her sister’s dead body in the hospital morgue. Angela is laid out like a lox platter past its prime, all cold and graying at the edges, and there’s no doubt that she is most sincerely dead. (Make sure to read our post mortem interview with show boss Courtney Kemp on why Angela had to die in the premiere.)

When Saxe shows up, he asks Paz to authorize an autopsy, and she tells him to go to hell: She knows James St. Patrick is behind her sister’s death, and she refuses to give the Feds permission to further mess with Angela’s body. He argues that the autopsy will allow them to collect evidence, and if she doesn’t acquiesce… and St. Patrick gets away scot-free… “the only person to blame’s gonna be you.” Nice people skills there, Saxe.

Saxe is working on a theory that St. Patrick killed Angela because he thought she was the female witness (whom we know is really Maria Suarez). When he returns to the office, though, he’s surprised to find that Tameika has been fired — somebody’s gotta be the scapegoat! — and she’s been replaced by Jacob Warner (hi, Californication‘s Evan Handler!) Saxe immediately tells his new boss that he is likely the leak that led to Angela getting killed (he told Proctor, remember?) but still thinks that Proctor is their best bet at getting Ghost. In fact, on his way back to the office, he met with the lovably crooked lawyer, slipping him just enough information to try to provoke a second attack. After all, Angela didn’t sign any paperwork, and she wasn’t a Federal witness, which means no automatic death penalty for the person who killed her. But Maria IS a Federal witness, and anyone who tries to take her out would essentially write his or her own death warrant.

Eventually, Det. Rodriguez shows up at Warner’s office and announces that she wants to be part of the AUSA’s task force investigating Angela’s murder. She eventually gets her wish.

TARIQ PLAYS HOOKY | After Tommy meets up with Keisha exactly long enough to tell her that a) Ghost is still alive and b) he needs her to toss his gun in the river, he speeds away with a vague promise to call her. He goes to his apartment, unaware that Ghost is waiting to jump him there. The two have a big, physical fight; during it, Tommy learned that his shot killed Angela and Ghost learns that Tommy knows about Ghost’s shady machinations regarding Teresi. Tariq shows up in the middle of his dad and his uncle beating the snot out of each other, and Omari Hardwick’s delivery of the line “Why aren’t you in school?!” makes me laugh out loud. For reasons I do not understand, Ghost gives his kid 10 minutes to talk to Tommy alone, then leaves the apartment.

He heads over to meet Tasha at the nightclub, where he informs her that “the woman I love is gone.” Well, DAMN. She, in turn, demands to know the whereabouts of Terry, “the man that I loved” — but she’s pretty sure he’s dead. She also announces that she wants a divorce.

Later, Ghost lets Proctor know that he was wrong about Angela being the Feds’ witness, and Proctor tells Ghost about the other female witness. Proctor suggests giving Tommy up, but Ghost says he’d prefer to kill him instead. That little nugget of information, however, is left out when St. Patrick and his lawyer voluntarily meet with the AUSA’s office. Ghost spins a story about how he and Angie met up at their old high school so she could tell him she wasn’t going to testify against him, and Saxe and Donovan definitely don’t believe him. But he continues the lie, saying he has no idea who killed AUSA Valdes.

SMOKE HIM IF YOU’VE GOT HIM | Meanwhile, when Tommy meets with his primeras and gives them news they don’t want to hear — Jason is delaying delivery of the product until Ghost’s check clears — a couple start to revolt. “You ain’t s—t without Ghost,” one mouths off, so Tommy shoots and kills him, right there in the room. Pretty much everyone falls in line after that.

Sometime later, he and Tariq are on the roof of Tommy’s building. Tommy cues up some Bone Thugs-n-Harmony (ha!) to set an appropriate mood, because Tariq is going to scatter Kanan’s ashes over Manhattan. Tommy scoops up some of his mentor’s remains and smokes them (eeeew), then informs ‘Riq about his father’s role in Teresi’s death. “How would you feel is something really bad happened to him?” he asks the teen, and Tariq replies that he’s not sure. Then they reaffirm that they’ll always be there for each other. It’s sweet… until we notice that Ghost is watching them as Tariq says goodbye in front of the building.

The next time we see Raina’s evil twin, he’s in the passenger seat while Tasha drives him back to Choate. He’s happy to learn of Angela’s death, but Mama St. Patrick sets him straight, and fast. She points out that Ghost’s mistress kept his adolescent butt — as well as pretty much everyone they know — out of jail, and they should be grateful. (Side note: And if you ever told me in Season 1 that TASHA would be saying this about ANGELA in Season 6, I’d have told you to keep on smoking whatever Ghost was selling. Crazy how people change, eh?

Then again, our girl is still the same at her core: When she meets her mother for a bite to eat, Estelle thinks Tasha’s plan to divorce Ghost is a foolish one. “You really think Ghost is gonna let you walk away?” she asks. But Tasha merely says she’s going to get even with her husband herself. Is it wrong that THIS is the showdown I will most eagerly await all season?

YOUR MOVE, TOMMY | After Ghost visits Paz and offers to pay for Angela’s funeral — an offer which is loudly and soundly rejected — Paz meets with Saxe and changes her mind, allowing him to move forward with the autopsy on her sister. Elsewhere, Keisha dresses like a cat burglar and throws Tommy’s gun into the river, like he requested. And Tariq calls Ghost from school and asks if he knows who killed Angela. Ghost says no, but he appears to be touched by his son’s reaching out. Afterward, though, the teen tells his boarding-school roommate that he’s just playing nice with his dad “for now.”

Then all that’s left is for Tommy to see Jason, who seems very jovial as he embraces the younger man and they talk about finally moving his product. Jason has one of his underlings bring Tommy’s car around the front of the warehouse where they’re meeting — and Ghost is lying in wait for the perfect moment. He opens fire on the vehicle, strafing it with bullets from a machine gun, and there is a LOT of blood splattered all over the interior before he’s done. Ghost thought it was Tommy in the car. Heck, the audience is made to think it’s Tommy — even Tommy doesn’t know how it all went down until he realizes why Jason got a little cuddly earlier. “That weird hug. You took my keys!” he says. Jason wants to know if Tommy is going to run, or stand and fight. Afterward, while having a drink at Lakeisha’s apartment, Tommy tells her he didn’t kill Ghost — “and I’m beginning to regret that decision.” He declares war and offers to send her and Cash away for their own safety. “If I can help you,” she vows, “I’m staying.”

At Angela’s apartment, Ghost finds a photo of them as teenagers in her drawer. “Sorry, Angie,” he says to her door as he lets himself out. Then he cries approximately half a tear for the love of his life, and leaves.

Kim Kardashian looks stunning in silver swimsuit on beach day with daughter Chicago – The Sun

KIM Kardashian dazzled her millions of Instagram followers today in a silver swimsuit as she hit the beach with her daughter Chicago.

Reality icon Kim, 38, played in the sand with her little girl, one, in the idyllic location before taking a dip in the ocean.

She knelt on a towel and gave Chi a kiss on the cheek in one cute snap.

Meanwhile she modelled a nude bikini beside sister Khloe and pal La La Anthony and claimed they could be the new Charlie's Angels.

She wrote: "Hi Charlie 📞 *We would be a 💣 Charlie’s Angels Cast*"

The sizzling snaps were a return to form for Kim after she was accused of a photoshopping blunder as a new promo pic for her perfume collaboration with sister Kyle Jenner seemed to show her with six toes.



Fans spotted the mistake as Kim unveiled campaign images for her latest KKW fragrance launch on her Instagram page.

In the pictures, the sisters wore one-legged latex bodysuits which cling to their famous curves.

Both carried one of their lip-shaped fragrance bottles, which come in three different scents: red lips, pink lips and nude lips.


"She's been wearing my perfumes forever so this collab is extra special because I know how much she loves the process," Kim said of her 22 year-old billionaire sister.

"Finding her perfect scent was impossible to we narrowed it down to her three favourites."

But unfortunately for the mogul siblings, it's not the fragrances that have got people talking.

As soon as Kim dropped the images, fans spotted what looked like a sixth toe on her left foot – and wasted no time pointing it out.

"Why you got 6 toes?" one follower posted underneath the picture.





A second said: "Am i tripping or does Kim have 6 toes? Someone please explain. I'm so confused I counted so many times."

Even celebrity blogger Perez Hilton weighed in, writing: "That sixth toe is iconic."
But while many felt the extra toe was an example of photoshopping gone wrong, others thought there was a more simple explanation.

"Maybe it's a bunion," suggested one, while another claimed it was just an optical illusion.

"It looks like a sixth toe, but it's not," explained the keen-eyed observer. "It's the edge of her foot."

Regardless of whether someone got a bit too eager with the retouching or not, Kim wasn't letting the criticism bother her.

She later posted another picture of herself sat atop a pair of giant lips and explained what the different scents smell like.

"Red Lips is an opulent white floral, Pink Lips is a solar floral coconut & Nude Lips is a vanilla amber musk," she revealed.

And she could hardly contain her excitement about the launch.

"Each scent is so juicy I don’t have any other words," she wrote. "I can’t wait for you guys to get them on Aug 23."

Sweet potato drought leaves shelves bare after severe weather in US

Sweet potato drought leaves shelves bare after severe weather in the US left crops at five percent of normal levels

  • In London and the South East sweet potato levels are down after severe weather
  • Supermarkets say shortage is worse than feared and shoppers are complaining 
  • Supermarket Aldi said they have been affected by the industry-wide issue

A shortage of sweet potatoes has hit the UK, leaving many supermarkets out of stock.

In London and the South East levels are just one 20th of normal after severe weather in the US.

Supermarkets say the shortage is worse than feared and shoppers are complaining that the vegetable cannot be bought at a reasonable price anywhere.

A shortage of sweet potatoes has hit the UK, leaving many supermarkets out of stock (file picture)

Supermarkets are trying to find alternative sources. North America is the largest supplier followed by Egypt and Spain.

Guatemala, Mexico and Honduras export a small amount and attempts to import them from China have not been a success.

One shopper said: ‘I’ve been into half a dozen large supermarkets and to local grocers and there is simply none to be had. 

‘One grocer said he would have to charge more than £2 each and that the shortage could last until the end of the year.’

Aldi said they have been affected by the industry-wide issue and are working with suppliers to minimise disruption

Aldi said: ‘Like other supermarkets we have been affected by this industry-wide issue. We are working with our suppliers to minimise disruption for our customers.’

Sainsbury’s said its stores were running low as did Waitrose, Asda, Tesco and Morrisons.

The Produce Alliance in the US said: ‘The market continues to be tight after many growers were affected by Hurricane Florence in North Carolina last September. 

‘Increasing demand and heavy rains in Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Alabama also created challenges.’

Pre-order link goes live for Weston Cage Coppola, Jesse Kove’s D-Day film

Breaking news from the official Twitter account of Jesse Kove states that the WWII thriller, D-Day, starring Weston Cage Coppola, Jesse Kove, Randy Couture, and Chuck Liddell, is now available for pre-order.

For many, September 13, the release date for the WWII epic, can’t get here fast enough. Nick Lyon’s D-Day has fans of the greatest generation (which is all of us) buzzing, as the film has become somewhat of a darling among pundits — and for good reason. D-Day truly is a must-watch movie that captures the spirit of American pride.

The movie features two rising stars in Jesse Kove and Weston Cage Coppola. It also includes MMA legends Randy Couture and Chuck Liddell. The actors combine for completely stellar performances portraying (real) characters who played critical roles in the battle of Pointe du Hoc, a mission that directly aided Operation Overlord — the invasion of Normandy Beach.

D-Day was the turning point of WWII, as it gave allied forces the advantage over Nazi Germany.

This movie is significant for Weston Cage Coppola and Jesse Kove for many reasons, the greatest being that — as the two actors recently explained in interviews with us here at M&C — they were childhood friends and were both hired as leads in D-Day without realizing it (see below).

Tulisa delivers sassy nod to past controversy at Manchester Pride comeback gig

Tulisa made a storming return to the stage at Manchester Pride with a defiant nod to her past drama.

The 30-year-old singer spent two years in self-imposed hiding, admitting that she'd moved to 'the middle of nowhere' to escape the public eye.

But the former X Factor judge embraced her return to the limelight as she stepped out at the annual LGBTQ+ festival clad in a pair of giant fluorescent shades and cut-out dungarees.

The N Dubz starlet performed to huge crowds in the city centre on Sunday night ahead of sets from Cheryl and headliner Ariana Grande .


Tulisa kicked off her set with Scream and Shout, released as a single by Will.I.Am and Britney spears in 2012.

It was a defiant move for Tulisa who previously claimed she'd written the No.1 song and had been planning to use it on her album The Female Boss.

Then in 2018 Tulisa successfully sued Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.I.Am and is now credited as a writer on the track.

Speaking about the controversy on Loose Women this year, Tulisa said: "I don’t feel bad blood about it. At the end of the day it’s not a move I would have done. But look at the success that he’s got out of it and off the back, I can’t complain, I’ve got a Number One hit in loads of countries around the world, so everyone won.”


The 'sassy' move did not go unnoticed by fans of the former X Factor judge.

"Tulisa taking back what’s hers by starting her set with Scream and Shout is what Pride is all about," said one.

The singer also delighted fans with some throwbacks to her early career as she performed hits from the NDubz back catalogue.

It's set to be an emotional night for music fans at Manchester Pride as US singer Ariana performs in the city only for the second time since the fatal terrorist attack at her concert in 2017.

She last took to the stage there for charity gig One Love Manchester, arranged to raise money for the victims of the tragic bombing.

22 people were killed on May 22 2017 and more than 50 reportedly injured after a bomb exploded in the foyer of Manchester Arena moments after Ariana had the left stage.

In June 2018 the Thank U Next singer said she was suffering from anxiety and 'signs of PTSD' a year after the attack.

“Yeah, it’s a real thing. I know those families and my fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well,” she told British Vogue.

“It’s hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss … I feel like I shouldn’t even be talking about my own experience – like I shouldn’t even say anything.

“I don’t think I’ll ever know how to talk about it and not cry.”

Martial artist ‘burst into Brit father’s Thai hotel room via balcony before strangling him’ after noise complaint – The Sun

A NORWEGIAN martial artist accused of choking a British dad to death in a Thai hotel stormed into the alleged victim's room via his balcony, cops said.

Roger Bullman, 53, has been charged with the manslaughter of Amitpal Singh Bajaj after launching a frenzied attack because the father from Southall, west London, confronted him for being too loud.

Police in Bangkok now say Bullman used his armed forces training to strangle Amitpal in his room in the Centara Grand Resort in Phuket where he was staying with his wife and young son.

Karon police major Techin Deethongon said: "They fought, and because of his military background the Norwegian strangled the victim.

"He confessed and said he did not think his act would cause the victim to die."

LATE NIGHT SCRAP

Techin said the fight started when Amitpal complained about noise from Bullman's room disturbing his family's sleep.

Bullman, who now faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted, was granted bail of 400,000 baht (around £10,750).

Bandhna Kaur Bajaj, 34, said Amitpal screamed for her to take their son, Veer, to safety as he was being choked to death.

Bandhna said: "As the man was kicking, punching and just, beating him up, my husband told me to please leave and save our son. He said, ‘Please just go, go, save Veer’."

She said as she took their young child, she saw her husband fall to the ground and then fled the hotel before hiding in a tree.

Bandhna said she begged reception to send someone to help her husband.

“I could still hear him screaming. I didn't want to be attacked,” she said.

“My husband sacrificed his life to save my son's life and mine. He will always be our hero.”

Earlier the family had asked the hotel staff at the five star Centara Grand Hotel in Karon, Phuket, to intervene after the noise continued for two hours in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

'HEARD HIM SCREAMING'

Security guards visited the room of Bullman but the noise is said to have became worse — with the Norwegian singing on the balcony.

Amitpal then allegedly grabbed a steak knife from his room and decided to confront Bullman at 4am on Wednesday, according to The Phuket News.

But troublemaker Bullman, who was drunk, allegedly refused to lower his noise and continued yelling and singing, according to the cops.

They started quarrelling which later turned into a fight.

The suspect told police that Amitpal first stabbed him in his left shoulder before he used his martial-art skills to grip the Briton in a choke hold and continued choking him to death as Ampital's horrified wife looked on.



Bullman was arrested for manslaughter in the morning at Karon police station.

He told the police that he acted out instinctively and was not intentionally trying to kill him.

Police have said Norwegian suspect has admitted that he was arguing with Mr Bajaj and entering his room through the wood door on the balcony.

He has admitted placing Mr Bajaj in a choke hold but has said wanted to stop the victim used too much force, say the cops.

HARM RESULTING IN DEATH

Police Major Ekkachai Siri of the Phuket Tourist Police said that the Norwegian has been charged for ''causing harm resulting in death''.

The police chief said: “Mr Bullman was drunk and causing so much noise that hotel security came to warn Mr Bullman twice.

''Mr Bajaj carried a steak knife into Mr Bullman’s room. They started fighting and Mr Bajaj stabbed Mr Bullman in left shoulder.

''Bullman has been released on bail by the Phuket Provincial Court. He now must remain in Thailand until the charge against has been heard in court.

''Meanwhile, British consular officials are in contact with Mr Bajaj’s family and already inform them about his tragic death.''

DEADLY FIGHT

Later Karon Police chief Col Prawit provided more details about the fatal altercation.

"Both were fighting inside the room, and (at least one) bottle was used in the fight.

“The fight continued outside the room. Mr Bullman was bigger and stronger, and had Mr Bajaj in a hold with his arm across his neck.

“Mr Bullman choked and hit Mr Bajaj until he was unconscious. A security guard arrived at the scene and saw Mr Bullman on top of Mr Bajaj while choking him with his arm.

“The security guard shouted at Mr Bullman to stop, which he did immediately."

A Foreign Office spokesman told The Sun Online: “We are supporting the family of a British man following his death in Phuket, and are in contact with the Thai authorities.”

England boss Eddie Jones ready to hand squad BOOZE BREAK – despite Te’o and Brown bust-up – The Sun

EDDIE JONES has arranged special BOOZING sessions for his England players during this week’s Italy training camp.

Head coach Jones has given the green light for drinking — despite Ben Te’o and Mike Brown’s bust-up on their last trip to the same Treviso base, which led to their axing from the World Cup squad.


Following Saturday’s 57-15 Twickenham thrashing of Ireland, Jones revealed: “In a Test week, it’s business all the time.

"Now we have time to have sessions — they’re not all drinking sessions! But we do have some.

“The sessions are where the players just communicate. To have time together as a team and work out differences for a better relationship is massive for us.”

Jones is a big fan of Treviso’s red wines but picked the training base in northern Italy as its heat and humidity are like World Cup venue Japan.

When England went to Italy last month, each player lost up to half a stone in each session.

That hard work looks to be paying off after they slaughtered Ireland with a record points tally and winning margin.

With the final warm-up game against Italy in Newcastle on Friday week, cautious Jones said: “The only thing you do know is you’ve got to keep going forward — and that’s hard.”

England are joint- second favourites with South Africa to lift the Webb Ellis Trophy for only the second time.

And when asked if England fans should start believing rugby is coming home, Jones added: “The message was the 80 minutes we played against Ireland. You can’t give a better message than that.”
