The Word: Club owner wants Drake to pay for pot bust
A rapper smoking weed? Not that surprising. A rapper smoking weed in Oklahoma City? Well, also not that surprising. What else is there to do in Oklahoma City?
Earlier this week, Drake — the former child star turned lover boy — was reportedly responsible for a huge cloud of pot smoke in a VIP area, which caused the Dollhouse Lounge to close down — even though they opened for the night especially for him, according to TMZ. But here’s where the story gets weird: The spot’s manager claims that once he and the staff smelled the smoke, they shut the party down. Then the cops came (apparently to help “restore order”) and they discovered a half-burnt joint where Drake and his entourage were previously hanging. So they arrested the club manager — not Drake — and now the he’s mad and wants Drake to help him out with the various tickets, which amount to several thousands’ worth.
A half-smoked joint found in an ashtray causes not only an arrest but also a lawsuit? “Crime” in Oklahoma City is adorable. What do managers expect when they rent out a club to a world-famous rapper and his entourage? A knitting circle?
Jolie takes on leg-haters
Angelina Jolie, whose right gam and odd gunslinger pose at the Oscars launched a meme, a Twitter feed and impersonators, now tells the Huffington Post: “I honestly didn’t pay attention to it. I don’t watch those TV shows, and if I go online and see something about myself I don’t click on it. And the people I surround myself with don’t really talk about this kind of stuff. I heard something, but I didn’t pay any attention. It’s as simple as being a woman picking a dress you like and having a night and not really thinking about anything else.”
Oh, come on, Jolie! Can’t you ever admit when you do something ridiculous? And yes, constantly sticking your leg out as though it was sniffing around looking for dinner was ridiculous.
