Suge Knight: Tupac Is Not Dead

Nobody has seen Tupac's body', Suge Knight reveals he is not sure rapper is really dead


Tupac could still be alive, according to former Death Row Records label CEO Suge Knight.
The rap mogul, who was in the driver's seat of the car in which the artist was shot in 1996, said in a radio interview yesterday that he is not convinced he really died.
Tupac Shakur, who was 25 when was killed in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas, was 'resurrected' on stage last weekend at the Coachella Festival through hologram.

And now the former label boss, real name Marion Suge Knight, has added fuel to the whispers by stating that he never saw the artist's body following his death, despite being there on the night.
 Former Death Row Records label CEO Suge Knigh 

During an interview on Los Angeles radio station 93.5 KDay, which was reported on TMZ, Knight was questioned on his feelings about accusations that he had been involved in the plot to have Shakur killed.
But he stunned listeners when he answered: 'Maybe the question is, Pac's not really dead. Pac's somewhere else.'
When pressed by the clearly taken-aback radio hosts, he added: 'Nobody seen Tupac dead.'
Knight, 47, added that he gave $3million cash to the person who was supposed to cremate Shakur, but never heard from him again.
The interview, reported on TMZ, has reignited conspiracy theories that Tupac faked his own death.
Knight, along with P Diddy, was accused last year by an ex-LAPD detective of ordering the killings of Shakur and Biggie Smalls. They called the claims 'ridiculous' and 'pure fiction.'
Knight was arrested in May 2010 for assault with  a deadly weapon, arrested earlier this year for possession of marijuana, and is serving 36 months probation for driving on a suspended license.
Last weekend, fans of the late rapper were stunned when he unexpectedly appeared onstage during Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre's headlining performance.
Making the illusion even more believable, he greeted the roaring crowd by saying: 'What's up Coachella?' - a festival that wasn't even taking place at the time of his death - before joining Snoop and Dr. Dre on hit single Hail Mary.
Shakur also joined Snoop for song Gangsta Party, appearing to interact with the rapper.
While some argued that the inclusion of the late rapper's image was in bad taste, many of his celebrity fans took to Twitter page to express their excitement over the dramatic performance.
2PAC and  Suge Knigh

Katy Perry tweeted: 'I think I might have cried when I saw Tupac.'
RIhanna added: 'TupacBack unbelievable Iwasthere Story4myGrandKidz (sic).'
The singer also tweeted a picture in which she appears to be hugging Tupac, achieved either using the hologram or through photoshop.
It seems that it wasn't just fans that were delighted to see the late rapper back on stage - his mother Afeni Shakur was also 'thrilled' with the hologram.

Don't act retarded, know the truth!

 - You can clearly see that the little 'bump' on Tupac's head in the autopsy shows that it's not Tupac.
 - Tupac's head is put to the side wich isn't a normal thing to do because of Rigor Mortis(Body stiffnes)
 - Look at this picture made by the member '7_Days':

2PAC fake body.
According to TMZ Dr Dre asked Tupac's mother's permission to incporporate him into their show and as a thank-you made a donation to the charity in the late rapper's name.
Tupac died on September 13, 1996 after being shot four times, but is still one of the best-selling musical artists in the world.
The resurrection was achieved with the use of modern technology derived from a 19th Century technique called Pepper's Ghost.

Wel-Kim To My World: Kim Kardashian’s Latest Nail Polish Collection

In the most narcissistic nail polish collection to-date, Kim Kardashian debuted her latest Nicole by OPI polish collection on her blog yesterday. Called “Wel-Kim To My World,” Kim’s collection includes six brand-new colors. Kim called the collection “feminine and flirty” and replicated the colors she is usually drawn towards. Fittingly, all of the polishes are named after her.


“My go-to nail polish colors are pale pinks, whites and nudes, so I wanted to give you guys a similar selection that represent my signature look,” said Kim.

The collection includes classic shades and neutrals for the perfect touch of femininity, with a few pops of colors for a big night out. The entire collection is now available at CVS!

Shanetta Dorsey, Aspiring Fashion Designer

Where are you from?
Cleveland. I’ve been here a month and a half.

What brought you to New York?
I’m working freelance for a corporate knitwear line, measuring samples and things.

Why here?
This is the place for my industry; I can’t get my career started in Cleveland.

Would you ever move back there?
Maybe when I’m like 40. I want a willow tree and a magnolia tree in my yard. I want peace.

What do you do when you're not working?
I’m kind of corny—I just go to museums.

Do you have a favorite?
I love MoMA, and I went to the Met. But there’s a really cool museum in Cleveland called the Museum of Contemporary Art. It’s impressive for such a small state.

It sounds like you miss Cleveland a little bit.
Does it? I think I do. Yeah … I do miss home.

What do you miss?
I miss my friends, my family, driving around. I can’t believe I’m homesick, because I hated it when I was there. I was always longing for New York.

Artist behind the controversial Swedish ‘Cake’

Makode Aj Linde

So this is Makode Aj Linde, this artist behind the controversial Swedish “cake” event.

The whole thing was supposedly done to raise awareness for female genital mutilation. So naturally a man donning a racist stereotype of the Venus Hottentot image and screaming totally works for that.

He also claims the Culture Minister Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth whispered into his ear that things would be “better for you after this.”

“Maybe I’m overreacting, but hopefully some of my followers can clue me in. Am I in the wrong for side-eyeing the hell out of this?

 I will post an apology if I am, said Makode.

Many fine it troubling that a man who looks Black, his self identification unknown, would circulate racist art like that [Makode Aj Linde].

But his racist stunt did help expose so-called anti-racist Swedish politician Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth who has been called on to resign by The National Afro-Swedish Association.

Is this the height of racist?

Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth

Swedish minister of culture Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth attended a party for the Stockholm cultural elite on Saturday April 14th and declared the party officially started by slicing the genitalia (clitoridectomy) of a cake that depicts an African woman.
Lena has been called to resign by the National Afro-Swedish Association.

The photos went viral on social media with a lot of people saying its racist. You agree?
