Billie Lourd Pays Tribute to Late Mother Carrie Fisher on Sixth Anniversary of her Death

  Billie Lourd wrote a tribute post to her late mother Carrie Fisher six years after Carrie’s death. In a Tuesday Instagram post, the Ticket to Paradise star acknowledged the six-year anniversary of her mother Carrie Fisher’s death. Captioning a photo of herself and her late mother together, Billie wrote, “It has been 6 years since my Momby died (feels like 2 but also like 705 at the same time?). And unlike most other years since she’s died, this year, these past two weeks have been some of the most joyful of my life.” Billie and her husband Austen Rydell welcomed their second child, Jackson, on 12 December. They also share two-year-old Kingston. “My mom is not here to meet either of them and isn’t here to experience any of the magic. Sometimes the magical moments can also be the hardest,” the actress shared in her post. “For anyone out there experiencing the reality of grief alongside the magic of life, I see you. You are not alone.” She advised anyone experiencing both “magical” and

Nipsey Hussle’s Murder Trial Gets New Date As Alleged Killer 'Nervous' To Learn Fate

 



After several delays,  Nipsey Hussle’s alleged killer has a new trial date.Eric Holder — the man accused of  murdering the Crenshaw rapper in March 2019 is finally set to stand trial on January 5, 2022, a Los Angeles County judge announced on Wednesday (September 22).


Holder’s current lawyer, Deputy Public Defender Aaron Jansen, told  Rolling Stone his client is “nervous, but he knows it’s time to get the case moving to trial.”


Jansen also said Holder was experiencing “a substantial mental health issue” following the death of his mother and was “off his medication” the day of the shooting, which tragically claimed the life of Nipsey Hussle and left two others wounded.


Nipsey Hussle’s murder trial has faced numerous delays, largely due to the  COVID-19 pandemic. The high-profile case was originally scheduled to go ahead in April 2020 before being postponed until early 2021 due to the courts being disrupted by the virus, Judge Robert J. Perry said in December 2020.


In May, the murder trial was pushed back again, but that time it was due to Holder’s own doing after he refused to leave his cell. Then in July, the trial was delayed until December 2021 amid the retirement of its previously assigned judge and Holder’s defense attorney, famed O.J. Simpson prosecutor Christopher Darden, stepping down after receiving threats to his family.


Eric Holder has pleaded not guilty to one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of felony possession of a firearm in connection with the fatal shooting of Nipsey Hussle. If convicted, he faces a possible life sentence.


According to court documents, Holder allegedly fired at least 10 rounds into the Victory Lap artist from a black semiautomatic handgun in one hand and a smaller silver revolver in the other outside of his Marathon Clothing store in South Los Angeles on March 31, 2019.


Following the flurry of shots, Holder allegedly kicked Nipsey in the head before fleeing the scene, a police detective testified.


The bullets also struck bystanders Kerry Lathan and Shermi Villanueva, who survived the attack. Holder then allegedly hid out in a motel and was arrested two days later in nearby Bellflower, California.


In March, Eric Holder attempted to get his bail reduced from $6.5 million to $2.5 million, claiming he poses no risk to the general public, but his request was denied the following month.

Stormzy Fanboys Over Taylor Swift Backstage At MTV EMAs

 The pair both attended the MTV European Music Awards (EMAs) in Dusseldorf, Germany on Sunday (13.11.22) - where the US pop megastar dominated the evening, earning four gongs - and the Grime star was successful in his pursuit of grabbing a snap with the 'Karma' hitmaker backstage at the bash. He posted on his Instagram Story: "Man’s trying to get a selfie with Taylor Swift! Man’s running around." The 'Vossi Bop' hitmaker then captioned a selfie tagging the singer: "@taylorswift can I have a selfie please." He then updated fans: "Mans going to meet Taylor. (sic)" And sure enough, he posed with the 'Shake It Off' hitmaker before adding a final picture of himself with a massive smile beaming across his face. Pleased with himself, he gushed "So happy." The 29-year-old rapper has made a habit out of fanboying over his idols backstage at awards ceremonies. In 2020, Stormzy interrupted Billie Eilish's backstage interview at t

Drake Is Offended By Dad’s Tattoo Of His Face

    Drake shared that he isn’t too fond of his dad tattoo of his face. See the ink in question that has Drizzy wondering "why you do me like this." Drizzy took to Instagram to make fun of his dad Dennis Graham's tattoo—which happens to be a portrait of Drake's face. "I was just sitting here thinking why you do me like this," the rapper wrote on Aug. 8, "We family," he added, along with laughing-crying emojis to get the joke across. Guess it's safe to assume Drake isn't a fan of the ink, which was done nearly five years ago. And since that first tattoo session, Dennis has done his best to get the tattoo changed. "Hahaha I had 16 people to try and straighten this out," Dennis commented, "they're hurting me." In a separate comment, Dennis added, "I love you and miss you." While Drake has been known to have a few portrait tattoos of his own, such as Lil Wayne, Denzel Washington, and even his dad's mugshot.

For Time's 100 Most Influential People of 2021 list, published on Wednesday (Sept. 15), Cudi wrote about Lil Nas X and declared his support for the "Industry Baby" artist after the 22 year old tweeted that Black male rappers aren't interested in working with him. "When I saw the tweet about Nas’ album Montero not featuring Black male artists, and he replied that 'maybe a lot of them just don’t wanna work with me,' that made me sad," Cudi wrote. "There’s a homophobic cloud over hip-hop, and he’s going to break that s--- down. We have to stand with him. I’m going to do whatever I have to do to let him know -- you have my support.
