Did 50 Cent mock Rick Ross health scare with brutal 'Rocky' reference?

On Saturday, Rick Ross was reportedly still hospitalized in Miami for an undisclosed medical issue. Although many celebrities took to social media to offer prayers, one sent a message that wasn’t as heartfelt.

>> Rapper Rick Ross reportedly hospitalized after medical issue

50 Cent recently posted a still frame of the character Ivan Drago from the film “Rocky IV” to his Instagram page. In that particular scene, the boxer says, “If he dies, he dies” after knocking out his opponent Apollo Creed.

About an hour later, he shared another picture featuring Al Pacino's Scarface, writing, "Yeah I'm different."

While the uploads did not mention Ross, many across the internet speculate the “In Da Club” artist was targeting the Wingstop franchiser, who’s been one of his rivals for years.

The two emcees have publicly feuded since 2009 by explicitly condemning each other in several songs and interviews. The ongoing fight has even included cartoons, alleged sex tapes leaks and even lawsuits.

On Friday night, Ross was rushed to the hospital after reportedly suffering a heart attack. His current status has not been officially confirmed by family.

Bobby Brown believes Whitney Houston died from a broken heart, not drugs

Even though Whitney Houston was found to have had drugs in her system at her time of death, her ex-husband, Bobby Brown, believes she died from something entirely different: a broken heart.

“I don’t think she died from drugs,” the 49-year-old singer told Rolling Stone in a new interview. “No, not at all. She was really working hard on herself to try to be a sober person and, um [pauses] she was a great woman.”

After Houston was discovered unresponsive in a hotel bathtub in 2012, a coroner’s report determined that her “death was complicated by chronic cocaine use and heart disease,” having detected cocaine, marijuana, Xanax, Benadryl and other medication in her system. While Brown indicated that he believes she did not have drugs in her system, his wife and manager, Alicia Etheridge-Brown, stopped him to say, “There were drugs in her system.”

Instead, he said he thinks the singer died from “just being broken-hearted.”

About three years after Houston’s death, Brown suffered another loss when their daughter, Kristina Bobbi Brown, was also found unconscious in a bathtub. She remained in a coma for six months before passing away that June at the age of 22. Her boyfriend Nick Gordon was found liable for her wrongful death in September 2016 and was ordered to pay $36 million to her estate — something her father doesn’t see as justice.

Gordon is still under investigation in the ongoing criminal case regarding her death and has been accused of giving her a “toxic cocktail” before she was found unresponsive.

George Harrison would have been 75 Sunday

The youngest Beatle would have been 75 Sunday.

>> Read more trending news

George Harrison was the lead guitarist for the Beatles and also had a successful solo career. He was born Feb. 25, 1943, in Liverpool, United Kingdom. Harrison was the second member of the band to die, when he passed away on Nov. 29, 2001, in Los Angeles.

Harrison’s official Twitter account marked the milestone birthday with a remastered video of “Blue Jay Way,” a song the guitarist wrote for the 1967 album and movie, “Magical Mystery Tour.”

Harrison brought a guitar-playing style that would influence 1960s groups like the Byrds, and he learned how to play the sitar under the tutelage of Ravi Shankar, an Indian musician. Shankar’s influence was apparent in Harrison songs like “Within You WIthout You,” and “The Inner Light,” and also in the group’s hit “Norwegian Wood.”

Harrison’s most notable song with the group was “Something,” which appeared on the “Abbey Road” album along with “Here Comes the Sun.” Other hits included “Taxman,” and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” along with his first composition with the band, “Don’t Bother Me.”

Harrison also made his mark on the band outside of music. He studied Transcendental Meditation with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and persuaded the other Beatles to visit the the Maharishi’s camp in India during 1968.

Harrison was the first member of the Beatles to record a solo album, releasing “Wonderwall Music” on Nov. 1, 1968. 

When he began his solo career, Harrison hit No. 1 with “My Sweet Lord” and organized a benefit called the Concert for Bangladesh, which included a surprise appearance by Bob Dylan.

Harrison ran into copyright problems with Bright Tunes, which alleged infringement of the Ronnie Mack song “He’s So Fine,” which was performed by the Chiffons. The courts ruled against Harrison and he was forced to pay royalties.

However, Harrison maintained his sense of humor, writing in his 1976 tune “This Song” that “This song, has nothing Bright about it.”

WATCH: 'Frozen' Broadway musical debuts new song for Elsa

Just when you got “Let It Go” out of your head, there’s a new “Frozen” song to check out.

>> Watch the video here

Mashable reported that “Monster,” the first original song from the “Frozen” Broadway musical, was released on Friday, along with a music video featuring Caissie Levy, who’ll play Elsa on stage, belting out the tune.

The Broadway production of the beloved Disney movie will feature 12 new songs along with all the favorite tunes from the film. Just as they did for the movie, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez have brought their magic to the play, writing all the songs.

“Monster” comes into play during the second act when Elsa begins to wonder if she is a monster due to her magical abilities. Audience members also will get to hear several other new songs from Elsa, including “Dangerous to Dream.” Anna fans will be excited to hear that her character is getting her own new solo as well, “True Love,” and she’ll join Kristoff in a new duet called “What Do You Know About Love.”

“It’s a moment of anxiety where the freedom she found in ‘Let It Go’ is shaken, and she hears in the distance the voices of the men coming for her, and she realizes now is the time she has to decide what her next move is,” Lopez said of “Monster," according to the New York Times.

“It’s full of conflicting emotions,” Anderson-Lopez added. “It’s got fear. It’s got rage. It’s got her self-flagellation. It’s someone who has been living a double life of secrets and shame that no one knows about, and this is the moment of reckoning with all the destruction that she left behind her.”

In addition to Levy, the “Frozen” cast includes Patti Murin as Anna, Jelani Alladin (Kristoff), Greg Hildreth (Olaf), John Riddle (Hans), Robert Creighton (Weselton), Kevin Del Aguila (Oaken), Timothy Hughes (Pabbie), Andrew Pirozzi (Sven), Audrey Bennett (Young Anna), Mattea Conforti (Young Anna), Brooklyn Nelson (Young Elsa), Ayla Schwartz (Young Elsa), Alyssa Fox (Elsa Standby), Aisha Jackson (Anna Standby), and Adam Jepsen (Sven Alternate).

“Frozen” will make its debut at New York’s St. James Theatre on March 22.

Man who falsely claimed to represent Migos, scammed Emory University indicted

A man who claimed to be a booker for musicians including Migos, Lil Yachty and Lil Uzi Vert is facing federal fraud charges, the U.S. Department of Justice said.

>> Read more trending news

Octaveon Woods, 26, of Decatur, Illinois, was indicted on money laundering and wire fraud charges Feb. 6.

Woods allegedly operated companies, including Global Talent Agency and GTA Bookings, which claimed to represent “dozens of famous musicians, comedians and other artists,” the Justice Department said. Woods had no relationship to any of the artists his companies claimed to represent, U.S. Attorney BJay Pak said. 

Emory University paid $37,500 to Global Talent Agency in early 2017, under the impression that they were booking Migos for its annual Dooley’s Week celebration. Two weeks before the scheduled concert, Emory’s Student Planning Council learned they had been victims of fraud, and that Migos would not be performing. The university was able to book rapper Ty Dolla Sign at the last minute, paying at least $85,000.

Emory is not the only school that was allegedly duped by Woods. The University of Missouri “and other victims” paid Woods’ companies to book artists for concerts and festivals, the Justice Department said. 

Woods received $66,250 in total for the fake bookings, a federal indictment says. That means Emory’s $37,500 payment accounted for more than half of Woods’ money. The U.S. Department of Education is also investigating the case.

Once Woods’ companies received the money, Woods would launder the funds by transferring them to other accounts and withdrawing them as cash, the Justice Department said.

Woods has pleaded not guilty and posted $10,000 bond on Feb. 13. 

Smashing Pumpkins reunite for tour

The Smashing Pumpkins will return to the stage this summer with their first tour in nearly 20 years to feature founding members Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin and James Iha.

The “Shiny and Oh So Bright” tour coincides with the 30th anniversary of the Pumpkins’ formation and will highlight music from the group’s inception through 2000, with material from “Gish,” “Siamese Dream,” “Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness,” “Adore” and “Machina.”

Longtime Smashing Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder will also participate in the live shows, as the band will present a three-guitar lineup to “better emulate the signature tones and textures of their albums.”

Earlier this week, the band hinted at the upcoming tour with a statement regarding original bassist D’arcy Wretzky:

“In reuniting The Smashing Pumpkins, the band’s dedication remains to its fans and its music. To that, James Iha, Jimmy Chamberlin, and William Corgan haven’t played a show with D’arcy Wretzky for over 18 years. But it’s not for a lack of trying. For despite reports, Ms. Wretzky has repeatedly been invited out to play with the group, participate in demo sessions, or at the very least, meet face-to-face, and in each and every instance she always deferred. We wish her all the best, and look forward to reconnecting with you all very soon.”

Couple mistakenly goes to see Red Hot Chilli Pipers 

It was a colossal mistake, but hopefully Duncan Robb’s Valentine’s Day gaffe is under the bridge. After all, he wasn’t trying to encourage sick love.

>> Read more trending news

Robb thought he was buying tickets for his girlfriend’s “all-time” favorite band, the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Instead, he bought tickets for the “Red Hot Chilli Pipers,” which touts itself as “the most famous bagpipe band on the planet.”

Robb said he saw the tickets online when he was looking for seats to a boxing match and decided to buy them as a Christmas present. After all, the two tickets cost a mere $41 and the band would be playing in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Mashable reported.

"When I clicked on and got tickets in row Q and for 30 each, I thought, 'What a bargain,' there must not be many tickets left and snatched them up straight away," Robb told Storyful. "Also, I saw the date was Feb. 10, so I could make it into a Valentine's Day weekend -- kill two birds with one stone."

When the tickets arrived in the mail, Robb still had not realized his mistake.

"Fast forward a month and we get the actual tickets through the post – brilliant! Up they went on the board – still nobody had noticed my mistake," Robb told Storyful. “It was only until the Wednesday before when my girlfriend wanted to know who was supporting them. She couldn’t find anything about the Red Hot Chili Peppers performing in Belfast.”

The Red Hot Chilli Pipers are not just traditional bagpipe artists. Their repertoire includes rock ’n’ roll classics like AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck,” Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” and Deep Purple’s “Smoke on the Water.”

Still, Robb and his girlfriend could only laugh. 

“What else was there to do?” Robb told Storyful. “The only saving grace was that we had found out three days before and not while we were in the arena.” 

The pair went to the concert anyway and said they had a good time, according to Mashable. They hope to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers at a future date.

“I thought I’d got a good deal on tickets n’all,” Robb tweeted. “Had a nightmare.”
