Geez, what were these people on? We just reported Tila Tequila‘s ordeal at the Gathering of the Juggalos concert. She emerged cut up and bruised because the amped-up crowd got violent and started throwing things at her. But the violence wasn’t solely directed at poor little TT. It looks like the delinquents were ready to get nasty with just about anyone who came on stage.
Method Man also bore the brunt of their attack. TMZ reports that he was performing with Redman when he was hit smack on the face with what appeared to be “a full beer can,” and the result was an ugly gash that was bleeding profusely. Redman stood up for the the bulls**t and cussed out the crowd (quite rightly) and told his fellow rapper, “Your face is cut, go take care of that.”
But for some strange reason, Method Man chose to continue the set. Maybe in the spirit of ‘the show must go on’? Maybe it was adrenaline, or machismo? If so, it’s a lot more than that crowd deserved. Either way, the bleeding rapper commanded, ”Start the music we’re continuing the show, let’s f**k these motherf**kers up.” Right…we would have gone the medical attention route.

Barack Obama is the first sitting President to be on the Tonight Show, the first to bravely show off his abs, and the first to hold a live Internet video chat. For the chat, held yesterday, The White House opened itself to questions from the general public and more than 100,000 were received. People then voted on which questions they wanted to hear Obama answer, and wouldn’t you know, one of the top inquiries they got was about legalizing pot.
The question posed asked whether legalizing marijuana might stimulate the economy by allowing the government to regulate and tax it. After realizing that that was one of the top questions on people’s minds, Obama joked, “I don’t know what this says about the online audience.” It says they cared enough to pause Pineapple Express for a half a second to send you a message, Barry! Take it as a compliment.
But Obama got stern when he firmly responded: “No, I don’t think that is a good strategy to grow the economy.” Later, the White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said he thought maybe marijuana advocates had stuffed the online voting boxes to get their question heard, and Norml, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (we love a good acronym), admits that they did tell their supporters to “let the president know that millions of American voters believe that the time has come to tax and regulate marijuana.” Hey, maybe they just want to be taxed in advance because they know they won’t pay them in the future, like Method Man.

We always laugh at those PSA’s that show a pothead melting into their couch or running over a small child (sorry, but that’s just comedy). Those never seemed like real dangers of weed. What they should do is make a commercial about how pot will make you forget to pay your taxes. We all remember the huge trouble Willie Nelson got in with the IRS a few years ago, and now Method Man is admitting that the number one reason the New York State Department of Taxation knocked on his door to literally collect everything he owned is because of his pot smoking. Method Man told the NY Daily News:
“Myself, I’m a pothead. It’s no secret. Everyone knows that. I go on the road and forget everything else. Sure, [the tax department] sent letters to my house saying, ‘We need this money.’ They started sending them in 2002. Here it is, 2009, and I never paid this sh*t because I don’t think like that!”
If that wasn’t entertaining enough, he continued:
“I could have easily just written them a check for whatever amount, but no — I waited until they knocked on this door and were like, ‘We got your truck and we outta here.’ Now I’m thinking we’ve gotta get our truck back, which means I have to get all my paperwork together. That means days of going through mail, ’cause I got mail like woah. I’ve found checks from 2005 that have never been opened yet. And we’re talking a significant amount of money! But I never opened [the tax department's] letters … so this is how the tax man came.”
Let that be a lesson to all of you users of the gateway drug. Not only will pot make you forget to pay taxes, but you will probably also tell a large media outlet way more information than they asked you for. [Photo: WireImage]
Karrine “Superhead” Steffans doesn’t just shake her booty in your favorite rap videos. She’s also slept with most of your favorite rap stars. The list includes Lil’ Wayne, Method Man and even a few ringers like Shaquille O’Neal and Bill Maher. And her acrobatic tongue eventually earned her the nickname “Superhead.”
Steffans blew the lid off her love life in the memoir Confessions of a Video Vixen, which landed on bestseller lists in 2005. The pneumatic 25-year-old told of breathless encounters with DMX, Diddy, Jay-Z, Xzibit, Dr. Dre, Ice T, Usher, Bobby Brown and Vin Diesel during her years in Hollywood. Breathless, that is, until the morning after, when Steffans would discover that she was left with more crabs than self-respect.
In the sequel, The Vixen Diaries, Steffans was at it again, alleging that ex Darius Morgan cheated on her with Tyson Beckford. In his own tell-all published in 2008, Bobby Brown downplayed Steffans’ contributions to literature. “I’ve spent several nights at her house,” he wrote. “But she was only good for what her nickname stood for.” — Charles Bottomley
