Happy 40th Birthday Tupac!| Shooter Confesses!

16 Jun


Today marks Tupac Shakur’s 40th Birthday!

It was 25 years ago that we heard the tragic news that our favorite rap star was shot and killed. (doesn’t that make you feel old!)

To our surprise on June 15, the eve of Tupac’s birthday, a prisoner named Dexter Issac spoke up about being involved in the shooting and robbery at New York’s Quad Studios, which sparked the feud between the rapper and his rival Notorious B.I.G. He admitted to SHOOTING and ROBBING Tupac Shakur for $2500 in 1994!

Issac informed the police that he’s getting ready to disclose everything he knows in relation to Tupac’s murder in hopes of giving his mother “some closure.”

Tupac was certainly a music and fashion icon — who DIDN’t wear their bandanas like him when they were growing up! haha.

Gaga Oolala| This Hair will Certainly Lead to a Bad Romance!

15 Jun

So, I’m all for being different and dressing to your own unique personality and style… however – shouldn’t you match or coordinate in SOME kind of way. Gaga just seems to throw anything on these days!

If your outfit is going to be random – at least make sure your hair is somewhat normal! The teal hair is so bold, long and gross… it’s just too much for her outfit. If she changed her top or bottom to a solid color she may have pulled this off.. but still…she get’s no love from ::SM:: on this one – Sorry!

What are your thoughts?!

…and must she always wear those stripper boots! ugh!
