A 23-year-old man named Steven Brown got so drunk on Christmas that he decided he was Nicki Minaj, and called the police to inform them of this revelation. Brown, who lives in Dublin, Ireland, first called 999 (equivalent to 911 in the U.S.) to tell the police that two men were threatening to kill him. Five minutes later, he called back and asked them to cancel his first call before insisting he was Nicki Minaj and that a poltergeist was in his house. It was later revealed that Brown had been released from the hospital earlier that day and had mixed alcohol with medication against medical advice, and thus really did believe some of the statements he made in the emergency calls — though I’m still unclear on whether he thought he really was Nicki or was just so drunk that he thought he was really clever. Brown recently faced legal trouble for similar behavior (sans Nicki proclamations) and had already been banned from using the 999 service under an Antisocial Behavior Order. After this incident the court deemed him an alcoholic and banned him from possessing or consuming drinks. [Belfast Telegraph UK]

Snoop Dogg (Lion?) has been taking to Instagram this week to rip on Iggy Azalea’s looks, call her a bitch and a cunt, and try to feed into the rumors about a fight between Azalea and Nicki Minaj. Snoop’s been repeatedly comparing her looks to Marlon Wayans’ character in “White Chicks” and put up a video rant in which he said he was going to “check” her, whatever that empty BS amounts to. Azalea told him she was disappointed in him for being kind to her face in the past and an “asshole” on social media now.
Before you jump on Azalea’s bandwagon, remember that she called a paparazzo a cunt and told him she hopes he dies of Ebola just a few days ago. She’s said plenty of racist and otherwise ignorant shit on Twitter. She’s not exactly classy, nuanced, considerate, or enlightened, she’s just ducking out of this fight because it’s totally pointless. Keep reading »
