Rodney King was shot.

Rodney King

Rodney King, whose videotaped beating once made him an international symbol of police brutality, suffered minor injuries after getting hit by a shotgun blast, authorities in California said on Thursday.

An intoxicated King summoned officers to his home in Rialto, about 60 miles east of Los Angeles, on Wednesday night to report he had been shot, said Sgt. Don Lewis of the Rialto Police Department.

“He had some minor pepper wounds that looked like they were from bird shot,” said Lewis, who described the injuries as “extremely minor.”

Lewis said King told police the shooting took place while he was riding his bicycle in neighboring San Bernardino. King rode his bicycle home after the incident and it was not immediately clear who fired the shot, Lewis said.

“(King) and the whole house were very intoxicated and very uncooperative,” Lewis said.

King was treated at a local hospital, and the investigation was turned over to San Bernardino police.

We can tell that the cops still dislike him after all of these years. Getting shot in the face whether you were just grazed or not is still a big deal. His widow’s peak should be illegal. Somewhere out there in the land of Actors who don’t f*cking matter anymore Eddie Munster should be filing a lawsuit for patent infringement

Posted by Media Outrage on November 29, 2007

Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys album As I Am has jumped over the platinum plateau, by selling 348,500 to tally up an impressive 1,092,200 albums sold in 2 weeks. A Keys is killing the game because after 11 weeks Kanye’s latest release has sold 1,714,000. So it will be interesting to see how many units Alicia moves after a few more weeks.

Ted Turner

Ted Turner has been the largest private land owner in the United States for quite some time now. He recently won the bid for 26,300 acres of prime ranch land for $10million.

Turner has amassed 2 million acres over the past two decades to become the largest private landowner in the country. He owns land in at least nine states, with most of his holdings in New Mexico, Nebraska, Montana and South Dakota.

Now that’s real wealth right there.

The power that is Oprah.

Posted by Media Outrage on November 29, 2007

Josh Groban

Meet the power that is Oprah Winfrey. Even though Josh Groban was already a platinum recording artist (he was introduced to the world on the Oprah show a few years ago) he recently released his album ‘Noel‘ 7 weeks ago and just became the first holiday album to reach top chart status in 13 years since Kenny G’s 1994 effort: ‘The Holiday Album‘.

Now if you watch Oprah then you know that last Wednesday on her Favorite Things episode down in Macon she featured one of her favorite singers Josh Groban and everyone in the audience was given free copies of his holiday album ‘Noel’. Hmmm so it really shouldn’t surprise anyone that since his performance on her show where she continuously showered him with nonstop kudos that his album sales have spiked a whopping 81 percent. And that folks is the true power of Oprah. She can mention anything and it most likely will take off. She said to her audience “It’s the one cd that every family should have! It’s my favorite favorite favorite thing! If you’re going to get one cd this Christmas, this is the one Noel Noel Noel Josh Groban.

Wow what she could do for the slumping sales in the hip-hop industry if it weren’t for her disdain for their lyrics that she says are misogynistic and extremely hateful towards women.

Kobe drops 35 and becomes 32nd highest scorer on NBA’s all time list.

Posted by Media Outrage on November 29, 2007

Kobe Bryant

Two nights ago in a 106-99 victory over the Sonics at Staples Center, Kobe Bryant scored 35 points to move past Bernard King into the #32 spot on the all time NBA scorers list. Kobe has now accumulated 19,686 points in his 11 year career along with 3 championships that he won with Shaquille O’Neal back in 2000, 2001, and 2002. Bryant is regarded as the best basketball player in the world.

In our opinion the dude is the best player in the league period. We don’t know if he will accomplish his goal in winning another championship before he retires but if not he has still entertained us beyond belief. Will he get traded this season? umm we don’t think so because there is no team that will give up an entire roster for him as he is aging. Anyway congrats Kobe on moving on up that scoring ladder. We imagine that by the season’s end he will have moved somewhere into the mid 20’s as far as all time scorers are concerned, just because we know how this dude can go crazy and drop like ten 50 plus consecutive games in a row. Anyway we look forward to covering this guy this season.

Jordin Sparks has the worst album debut in “American Idol” winner history.

Posted by Media Outrage on November 29, 2007

Jordin Sparks

Jordin Sparks sold 119,000 units in its first week, landing her at #10 on the charts and solidifying her as the lowest in both album sales and chart position for an ‘American Idol‘ winner. That’s cool it doesn’t matter because 30,740,000 viewers voted her our American Idol.

And in this worn down music industry that has taken a huge hit from internet downloading and constant bootlegging 119,000 isn’t that bad for a new artist. I watch TV all of the time and I didn’t see any major promotion for her project anyway. My bad I wasn’t even aware that she had an album out lol. She outsold Jennifer Lopez in her first week lol. That is something to be proud of because J-Lo is a superstar and received adequate support and backing from her major label EMI.

Lopez’s album “Brave” didn’t even hit the top 10 Billboard’s charts and it sold a measly 53,000 copies the first week it was released in October. You expect big numbers from Britney Spears and she isn’t selling well. The music industry as a whole is really suffering from this digital age we are in. That’s why Alicia Keys is the truth!  

So Ms. Sparks it’s cool keep doing your thing because the purpose should be to have longevity.

Birdman denies being married to an 18 yr old girl! he denies being married period!

Posted by Media Outrage on November 29, 2007

Birdman

Birdman and the gang were arrested Tuesday for allegedly having a pound of marijuana on them. Well anyway he made bail and talked about the situation with MTV.

Here’s what he had to say….

“We was on the bus. I was asleep in the back,” he said. “Why they pulled us over, I don’t know. The people are making the situation out worse than what it is. We got arrested for a misdemeanor amount of [marijuana] — we didn’t have no pound. The police just found something minor in a garbage can the dog sniffed. We all got out on bond.”

Baby also maintained that he is not in trouble with the law for carrying guns. He said he and his security personnel are all licensed gun carriers and their weapons were returned by the authorities.

“The guns we had were good,” he said. “I do carry a gun and I am licensed. Tennessee is one of the states I can tote in. We know the guidelines [for carrying weapons]. They make you aware of everything in [marksmanship] class.”

Birdman also emphasized that he is not married, as has been widely reported. He said the young woman mentioned in the reports was a friend of one of the guys traveling with him.

“I’m not married,” he insisted. “Never! Been! Married! Plus, that girl was 18! I don’t get down like that! Plus, if I was married, why would I keep it a secret?” However, he did allow that perhaps the right woman could make an honest man out of him one day.

Baby was released on $1,500 bond on Wednesday. He says he hopes all of the charges will be dropped and he won’t have to go to court. But he says everybody is fine.

The real reason R. Kelly’s publicist quit…

Posted by Media Outrage on November 29, 2007

The plot thickens and not in a good way either. R. Kelly’s publicist just up and resigned a few weeks ago out of the blue. After we got a hold of her official statement concerning the reason it sparked such a huge cloud of curiosity as to the real reason for her sudden departure. Here’s the statement…

Though I have a great appreciation for Mr. Kelly as an artist, there are some lines that should never be crossed professionally or personally. Mr. Kelly crossed a line that forever altered the scope of our relationship. For this reason I made the decision to resign.

My husband, music retailer George Daniels, has also disassociated himself from Mr. Kelly.”

– Regina Daniel

Now one would automatically assume that R was pushing up on Ms. Daniels, or that she just caught him pissing on her clothes or something weird and kinky like that. Then Sandrarose reported that the reason was rumored to be that he had asked Mr. and Mrs. Daniels to lie for him on the stand during his child pornography trial.

Well now AllHipHop is reporting that there is a serious rumor from an extremely reliable source, saying that R. Kelly overstepped his bounds by possibly having sex with Mr. and Mrs. Daniel’s 19 year old daughter! The source is saying that R. Kelly has known their daughter since she was 4. While it is not illegal for him to have sex with a 19 year old it is just messed up that you would do that to your publicist daughter whom you are like family with. This is all speculation and rumors at this point. If true very messed up. So we already know he likes to get it on with 15 yr olds, pee on them, and definitely not the guy you want to go on a 17 city tour with.
