Apparently, not everyone is a fan of Game‘s body ink.

The rapper was trying to grab some lunch at Houston’s restaurant in Pasadena, Calif., earlier today, when he was denied service because of his tattoos.

According to the celeb’s numerous tweets following the incident, he was told by one of the managers on duty that his ink was threatening to other people dining at the restaurant.

“NEVER eating @ Houston’s restaurants as long as I live ! Denied service in Pasadena by mgr…because: I have tattoos on my arms ?!?,” Game tweeted.

In my opinion if Game had a gun that would have been threatenting not Tattoos – De De Tillman ; Celebrity Blogger

Reebok had been inundated with calls to drop Ross after the release of “U.O.E.N.O.,” which includes the lyric, “Put molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it. I took her home and I enjoyed that. She ain’t even know it.” (Molly is a slang term for MDMA, a crystalline or powder form of the drug Ecstasy.)

It has been almost 3 years since Michael Jackson left us at the age of 50. However, intense interest remains about his life, work, and family–especially his three children. Oprah Winfrey recently visited Jackson’s 14-year-old daughter, Paris, for an interview that revealed some details about life with a world-famous parent.

 

One of the most-discussed Jackson oddities was his habit of covering his children’s faces in public. Paris Jackson explained to Winfrey that he was doing it to protect their identity in hopes people wouldn’t recognize them when they weren’t with their father.

“I was really confused,” Paris told Winfrey, confirming that her face was only covered when she was with her dad, not at any other time. “I didn’t get why I was wearing a mask, but I understand it now…why my dad would want our faces to be covered. When we went out without him, we wouldn’t be recognized and could have a normal childhood.”

 

When asked if she thought her father really wanted her to have a normal childhood, Paris answered yes.

“He had his doubts,” she added. “He told us when he was younger, he didn’t really have a childhood. He would always be stuck in the studio singing, while other kids were out playing.”

Paris noted that Jackson let his kids go to normal places in hopes they’d have a regular life. “Chuck E. Cheese and Toys R Us were our favorite places to go,” she told Winfrey.

According to OWN, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is one of the most successful and controversial rappers ever. After years of feud rumors between him and Oprah, she sits down with him for the first time from his grandmother’s home.

Oprah’s Next Chapter featuring the full interview with Paris Jackson will air June 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.

Lil Wayne Isn’t Planning To Return To Oklahoma City Arena

According to CBS News/Celebrity Circuit Lil Wayne said that after a recent NBA playoffs ticket dispute he felt unwelcome and “unwanted” at the Oklahoma City arena and isn’t planning to return.

 

The rapper said two Thunder players — Kevin Durant and James Harden — had reached out to offer him tickets to Saturday’s fourth game of the Western Conference Finals.

 

“That’s not the point, though,” he told The Associated Press in an interview Friday night. “It’s the players stepping up but of course the players aren’t white. I don’t want to be sitting there on behalf of you and I’m sitting next to a (person) that’s like `I don’t want this (guy) sitting next to me.’ (Forget) you … I’m in Forbes,” he said, laughing.

 

Lil Wayne claimed in a tweet Thursday night that he had been “denied by the team to be in their arena.” The team responded by saying the seats he wanted were already taken.

 

He said he typically procures tickets for such games “from this guy named Mike.” Lil Wayne said Mike had requested special security, parking and entrance for the rapper, but Mike said the team responded that they would only sell the seats for Mike’s personal use.

 

Lil Wayne said a manager had advised him not to return to the city’s arena for sports events or concerts, but “I never say never.”

 

He said he felt welcome at other arenas including Miami, and likes being able to energize players — many of whom are fans of his music — on their home court.

 

“That’s like me going on stage and … seeing LeBron (James) in the crowd with his hand up. I’m going to perform a little bit harder,” he said.

 

But in Oklahoma, he said that while “the players want me there, I don’t want to feel — I’m going to still feel unwanted.”

 

“Of course, when someone tells Lil Wayne, `No,’ that he can’t come in, `We’re sold out,’ you feel a certain way. Unfortunately, it had to go down like that,” said Durant, the three-time NBA scoring champion.

 

“We’d have loved to have him here in Oklahoma City. We’d have welcomed him with open arms. Hopefully, we get past that and next time he can come and enjoy a game.”

 

A team spokesman has said Lil Wayne’s representatives insisted that he sit in the front row, and none of those seats were available. Oklahoma City sold out every home game during the regular season and playoffs.

 

“It was just a misunderstanding. We were sold out of tickets, I heard, and we didn’t come through,” Durant said. “He knows a few of us on the team and he knows it’s nothing like that. We offered him tickets to tonight but he had to do something. He’s a superstar in his own right, so he can’t just pick up and go to a game.

 

“He had something to do, but I’m sure if his schedule was free, he would have came tonight. We’re still inviting him to games — maybe not this year. Next year or whatever.”

Shahin Najafi Iranian Rapper Gets Death Threats & $100,000 Bounty To Kill Him Over Song “Naghi” (Video)

An Iranian rapper is facing death threats and has a $100,000 bounty on his head for a song that some say insults an Islamic Shiite imam.

Shahin Najafi, who sings in Farsi and lives in Germany told the German website Qantara that the song “Naghi” is not about a religious figure but about the state of society in Iran.

 

“The story with ‘Naghi’ was just a pretext,” Najafi said in an interview with Qantara, which the German Foreign Office funds to promote dialogue with the Islamic world.

 

“For me it is more of an excuse to talk about completely different things. I criticize Iranian society in the song. It seems as though people are just concentrating on the word ‘imam,’ ” Najafi is quoted as saying.

 

 

Religious figures in Iran see it differently.

 

“Following the affront by rap singer Shahin Najafi against Imam Hadi (7th Imam of Shias) in a song called ‘Naghi’, his apostasy sentence has been issued by Ayatollah Safi Golpayegani,” Iran’s official Fars News Agency said in a website posting in Farsi.

 

Golpayegani is a grand ayatollah, which means the highest- ranking authority in Shiite Islam after prophets and imams. Being an apostate, or someone who forsakes Islam, is punishable by death under Iranian law.

 

“If the song contains any insults or indecency towards Imam Naghi, then it is blasphemy, and God knows what to do,” Golpayegani, a 92-year-old Iranian cleric, is quoted as saying by Qantara.

 

A post on the blog entegham says Najafi should be sentenced to death.

 

“According to article 513 of Islam’s penal code: Anyone who insults the sanctity of Islam, anyone of the great prophets, the Imams, and Sadigheh Tahereh (the prophet’s daughter) should be executed,” the post says.

 

The Iranian website Shia-Online.ir is offering $100,000 to anyone who kills Najafi. The money is being put up by “a philanthropist” in a Persian Gulf state, the website says.

 

In a blog post on Najafi, The Guardian in the UK calls Najafi “the Salman Rushdie of music,” a reference to the author of “The Satanic Verses,” who was given a religious death sentence by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in 1989 after Khomeini said Rushie’s book was blasphemous.

 

But writing in the state-run newspaper Kayhan, columnist Sadollah Zarei says Najafi’s case is different from Rushdie’s, according to a New York  Times report.

 

“This fatwa does not represent the government of Iran,” Zarei is quoted as saying. “This is done by a religious group in our society.”

 

Nevertheless, Najafi told Qantara he has taken “precautionary measures.”

 

“We do, after all, live in a country where there are rules and procedures for such predicaments. So there is nothing to worry about,” he told Qantara.

Rep says Pac’s mom was thrilled with hologram likeness of the rap icon at the music festival.

 

 

A representative for Tupac’s mom, Afeni Shakur, shared her reaction to her son’s surprise appearance at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival last night (April 15). According to TMZ, reps said that Afeni was excited to see her son perform on stage.

 
In case you missed it, concertgoers in attendance last night at Dr. Dre’s closing set at the Coachella music festival were treated to a barrage of special surprise guests including Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Snoop Dogg and most notably Tupac, in the form of a hologram.

 
Although Afeni wasn’t at the show, she watched the surprise unfold live on the Internet and was apparently in on the secret. Dre reportedly called and asked for her permission to do the hologram in exchange for a generous donation to the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation.

 
Although it was initially rumored that Nate Dogg would appear on the hologram, he was pulled from the show at the last minute.

 
Coachella continues (with the same set of acts) next week in Indio, California.

Tupac and Afeni Shakur.
