Principal Amy Lacey of Hempstead Middle School in Hempstead, Texas decided to ban the Hispanic students from being able to speak their native tongue of Spanish while they’re at school. The new policy was announced via the intercom, although nobody seemed to listen. The school’s population is about 50% Hispanic, so the thought of there being NO Spanish spoken at all seems a little ridiculous. The students have apparently been told if they’re caught speaking Spanish, the will be “written up and kicked out of class.”
Lindsay Lohan is celibate?! NO sex! She’s too busy focusing on her career to worry about boys … sources close to her say. According to sources, Lindsay’s reports of hooking up with Liam Neeson’s 18-year-old son, Michael … is BOGUS. Claiming they’re only friends and have been for quite a while. Lindsay hasn’t been dating ANY of the people she’s been reportedly seeing recently, including male models Morgan O’Connor (a friend of a friend) and Liam Dean (whom she met on a photo shoot). Instead, we’re told Lohan is focused on her sobriety and her career… good for her! Also, she’s spending at least 2-3 days a week shooting her docu-series for Oprah’s network.

This is such a shame! School shootings have become the the norm these days. A Florida teen at West Orange High School was shot today, after a fight had broken out near the school’s bus stop. Principal, Douglas Szcinski went to Facebook to mention, “There has been an incident in which one student was shot. That student is alert and is being transported to the hospital. Law enforcement is on the scene working the situation.” WILD! One student on the scene had told the Orlando Sentinel that, “he didn’t hear the shot, but saw the victim lying on the ground twitching.” So sad! As this story develops, we’ll keep you updated.
Rumors circulated that Kanye West postponed a lot of his Yeezus tour (and ultimately ended up cancelling a handful of dates) due to lack of ticket sales, and not the reported damage in equipment. A new report now only speaks to that, showing that Yeezy only filled 4,500 of the over 19,000 seats in the Kansas City Sprint Center earlier this week. Yikes! “Tuesday’s poor attendance indicates how his scandalous love life, frequent impolite pronouncements and his gradual shift away from conventional hip-hop have alienated many of his fans,” the Kansas City Star reported. Do you agree with them?
IF you’ve heard Wale speak before, it’s no secret that he has ties outside of the U.S. His family is from Nigeria and the, “Clappers” rapper took time out of his hectic schedule to take it back to the roots. Upon his arrival in Nigeria, Wale admitted to the press, “…only 15 percent of my family lives in the states. Everybody else is here so I got a lot of ground to cover.” In addition to soaking up the country’s culture, Wale celebrated his father, grandfather, uncles and performed, “Bad” with Nigerian act, Seyi Shay. Check that out after the jump.
The autopsy of Paul Walker has been completed, and it’s even more sad than originally thought. The actor didn’t die solely from the crash. He burned to death in the aftermath, and died from the combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries. The driver of the car, his good friend, Roger Rodas, died from multiple traumatic injuries suffered upon impact. Burning was not listed as a factor. The coroner says toxicology results for both men will be available in 6 to 8 weeks. So sad. RIP to both!
