Fans Pay Tribute to David Bowie

Thousands of David Bowie fans paid emotional tributes to the star today following his death, setting up impromptu shrines all across the world.

The iconic singer, whose new album came out just last week, died from liver cancer aged 69 in New York City yesterday surrounded by his family.

And only a week ago he sent frequent collaborator Brian Eno a farewell email saying: ‘Thank you for our good times, Brian, they will never rot.’

Following an outpouring of grief from celebrities, public figures and music fans, several significant sites in Europe and the US were transformed into memorials for the rocker, who had secretly battled illness for 18 months and was said to have suffered six heart attacks in the past few years.

His childhood home in South London, his apartment building in New York, a Dutch museum hosting a Bowie exhibition and the spot where the Ziggy Stardust album cover was captured were among the areas to host vigils.

Several fans burst into tears while laying flowers at a mural dedicated to the star in his birthplace of Brixton, with many saying his death – which was announced this morning – felt like losing someone close to them.

Bowie’s passing came just three days after the release of a music video which featured chilling footage of the singer confined to a hospital bed with his eyes covered by a bandage.  Read more here

Lil Za Arrested During Raid on Justin Bieber’s Home

There’s new  turn of events in the Justin Bieber non-poached egg throwing incident  and it appears that the latest Lil Za arrested during raid at Justin Biebers findings may just open up a “whole new can of worms” for the trouble singer and his entourage.

According to sources,  while police were executing a felony search warrant in connection with Bieber’s egg attack on his neighbor.   During the search inside Bieber’ s Calabasas home they found and confiscated a powdered substance and some Xanax which they believe belonged to his friend LilZa who they charged for  possession of felony. 

Officials said that Bieber was “not connected” to the drugs that were found.

They are reportedly testing the substance which they think is  probably Molly … a form of Ecstasy or cocaine.

Justin Bieber Eggs Neighbors House

Note:  MDMA is an empathogenic drug of the phenethylamine and amphetamine classes of drugs. MDMA has become widely known as “ecstasy”, usually referring to its street form, although this term may also include the presence of possible adulterants.

COMMON & BRAND NAMES:   Ecstasy; E,  X, XTC, Rolls, Beans, Adam, Molly

If they determine that the illegal  substance is  Molly (MDMA),the penalty for ecstasy isn’t as harsh as cocaine possession.  Lil Za, the younger brother of Lil Twist  could face 3 years in  prison.  Possession of MDMA is much less, about 1 year.

The egging incident…On Thursday, January 09, Eleven Los Angeles County Sheriff’s patrol cars arrived on the scene early Tuesday with a felony search warrant in connection with the incident from Thursday in which the Biebs’ next door neighbor claimed that Justin pelted his house with eggs.

Bieber is a suspect in a vandalism investigation and he was reportedly held in his garage during the search. Unnamed sources said deputies were looking for any evidence that would link Bieber to the egging, including other eggs in the house or video from the night of the incident.

The neighbor claimed that Bieber hit his house with no less than 20 eggs. Though the initial police report described the incident as a misdemeanor, the neighbor has claimed damage in excess of $20,000, which could bump the incident up to a felony. Bieber’s spokespeople have not commented on the latest flap with his neighbor.
