Madonna apologizes for using a racial slur on Instagram

Excuse me, what? Madonna posted a picture of her 13-year-old son on Instagram with the caption, “No one messes with Dirty Soap! Mama said knock you out! #disn—a.” She then deleted the comment and replaced it with, “Ok let me start this again. #get off my d–k haters!” She then apologized the next day, saying, “It was not meant as a racial slur… I am not a racist … It was used as a term of endearment toward my son who is white. I appreciate that it’s a provocative word, and I apologize if it gave people the wrong impression. Forgive me.” OK, as much as I love Madonna, it looks like she’s gone too far this time.

Justin Bieber could be deported 

Oh no, poor Biebs. After a police raid on his California mansion due to the alleged egging of his neighbor’s house, the police took J-Bieb’s phone in search of evidence. A narcotic substance was also found in his mansion, apparently belonging to his friend, rapper Lil Za. Worst-case scenario, the Biebs could be sent back to Canada, due to the minor detail that he is not actually an American citizen.
