Tiger Woods Joins Sex Rehab

Rebuilding his image reportedly becomes the athlete’s motivation in entering the rehabilitation facility in Arizona.

After being hit with rumor that he had an affair with several women while married to Elin Nordegren, Tiger Woods has reportedly entered a private, upscale rehabilitation facility in Arizona. According to X17online, a source told them that the golfer “has been there for a few days since his handlers forced him to enter the program. They feel that if he blames his cheating on addiction, the public will forgive him.”

“Tiger wants to get back on top,” the source further detailed on the reason why Woods agreed to enter the rehabilitation facility. “He agreed to put golfing on hold so he could show the world how badly he feels about what he’s done and to prove that he wants to correct the problems that led to his infidelity.”

Arizona has two high-profile rehabilitation centers, Cottonwood de Tuscon and The Meadows in Phoenix. The site reported Cottonwood’s program for sex addiction “centers on helping patients retrain the neural pathways that are activated by their sexual behavior,” while the Meadows focuses on treating alcohol and drug addiction along with compulsive behaviors such as eating, gambling, sex, love addiction/avoidance and co-dependence.

Though it is most likely that Woods joins a facility for sex addiction, there has been rumor that the athlete has problems with prescription drug abuse. Thus, X17online further suggested that he is possibly treated for multiple issues.

Kid Cudi Is Fed Up w/ The Industry….

Kid Cudi has never been a rapper that finds it necessary to bring down another rapper in order to promote himself. He is, however, a man that apparently believes in respect and will immediately shut down those that choose to not show him such courtesy.

During a show at the House Of Blues in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, the Man on the Moon spoke on his recent activity involving the assault on a fan that resulted in him being ejected from Lady Gaga’s tour.

The media has found many different angles and spins to place on the incident so Cudi has found no other alternative but to provide a little clarity and defend himself.

They trying to make me look like the poster boy for violence and ignorance,” Cudi said. “I tell motherf*ckers I’m the poster boy for honesty, realness, anarchy, I don’t give a f*ck about this business.”

Almost like a punching bag, the young rapper has been placed under the microscope and beaten by many, being judged for his preference and methods in showcasing his material his own distinct way.

What started as a response turned quickly into his own uproar as the rapper proceeded to provide further commentary on the music industry and how his own experiences have forever changed his perceptions on particular artists.

I’m the truest motherf*cker in this business and people trying to destroy me. All these other n*ggas that y’all probably fans of is sucker a** n*ggas, I met them. N*ggas I was a fan of when I was buying their CDs, I’m not a fan of they music no more. This business is WWF fam and if you don’t comply, they try to destroy you…I never talk sh*t, I came to this game, just wanted to smoke my weed and motherf*ckers just wanna destroy me, I don’t give a f*ck. I’m unstoppable.”

Megan Fox Named Sexiest Actress Of The Year & The Worst….

ContactMusic: Movie fans have rated MEGAN FOX’s sex appeal above her onscreen talents – she has been named worst actress of the year (09), but also the sexiest in a new poll.

Fox has topped the list of worst actresses by film website for her role in action sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, narrowly beating out Beyonce Knowles for her performance in thriller Obsessed and Hilary Swank in Amelia.

But the 23 year old can console herself after landing the title of sexiest actress in the same poll, seeing off competition form Star Trek’s Zoe Saldana and Sandra Bullock.
Fox’s Transformers follow-up also divided voters, being named both worst movie of the year and best action movie.

Twilight’s vampires and werewolves also proved popular, with British heart-throb Robert Pattinson scooping the title of sexiest male star and Taylor Lautner being named male breakout star of the year. The Twilight Saga: New Moon was named best film ahead of Avatar and The Hangover, and the bloodsucker movie was also crowned best chick flick.

Washington State Senator Wants Weed Sold In State-Run LIquor Stores…

Representative Mary Lou Dickerson, a state senator from Washington state, is proposing that a new bill be created in the effort to increase state revenue.

Under the proposed measure, marijuana would be available for purchase at all state-run liquor stores and customer 21 and older will be able to purchase state grown weed, paying a tax of 15% per gram.

All monies made from the tax would go toward Washington’s ill-funded substance abuse prevention and treatment program which is currently facing substantial budget cuts.

She predicts that the move would eventually net the state as much, if not more, money that is currently generated by alcohol sales.

Alcohol revenue gives the state of Washington over $300 million a year.

Susan Boyle Fifth Week At No. 1???

Susan Boyle’s “I Dreamed a Dream” holds at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart for a fifth consecutive week, selling another 510,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan. So far, the set has shifted 2,982,000 copies in America.
“Dream” has sold more than half a million copies in each of its first five weeks of release — something only four albums have done since SoundScan began tracking data in 1991. The Beatles’ “1” did it in its first six weeks, while Garth Brooks’ “Sevens” and Backstreet Boys’ “Black & Blue” each managed 500,000-plus frames in their first five weeks.

With just one more tracking week left in the year, “Dream” may overtake Taylor Swift’s “Fearless” as the year’s top selling album in the U.S. Swift’s “Fearless” has sold 3,157,000 in 2009 — thus, the gap between the two is down to just 175,000. Because of a quirk in the calendar, instead of 52 tracking weeks in 2009, there are 53. The final week of 2009 will reflect sales data for the week ending Jan. 3. Because four out of the seven days in that week fall in 2009, the full week gets credited to 2009.

Believe it or not, with the continued domination of “I Dreamed a Dream,” Boyle is the first artist in the Billboard 200’s 53-year chart history to enter the list at No. 1 with a debut album and spend five consecutive weeks at the summit. In second place are Lauryn Hill (1998) and Ashanti (2002), each with three weeks in charge out of the gate with “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” and “Ashanti,” respectively.

Because Boyle continues to dominate the Billboard 200, a superstar diva is forced to sit on the sidelines again this week: Mary J. Blige’s “Stronger With Each Tear” debuts at No. 2 with 330,000 copies. Her arrival comes one week after Alicia Keys’ “The Element of Freedom” bowed at No. 2 behind Boyle with 417,000.

This is Blige’s third studio album in a row to start with more than 300,000 sold. Her last set, “Growing Pains,” launched at No. 1 with 629,000 in December of 2007, while “The Breakthrough” debuted at No. 1 with 727,000 in December of 2005. Blige is the ninth woman in SoundScan’s 18-year history to see at least three albums all debut with an opening sales week of 300,000 or more. “Stronger” is her 10th top 10 album on the Billboard 200 and her seventh set to reach the top two slots. It fares better on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, where it starts at the summit. Now with nine No. 1s on the latter chart, Blige trails only Aretha Franklin (10 No. 1s) for most No. 1s among women in the R&B/Hip-Hop tally’s 44-year history

Blige’s “Stronger” is one of just two debuts within the top 40 of the Billboard 200 this week, as the year slowly comes to a close. The lone other entry comes from the “We Are Young Money” collaborations album featuring artists on Lil Wayne’s Young Money label. It debuts at No. 9 with 142,000.

Next week’s batch of debuts will look especially barren, as no major releases were issued this week. The next big arrival will be Ke$ha’s “Animal” on Tuesday, Jan. 5.

The rest of this week’s top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 remains full of familiar titles. Andrea Bocelli’s “My Christmas” holds at No. 3 with 284,000 (down 27%) while Keys’ “Freedom” falls two slots to No. 4 with 280,000 (down 33%). Swift’s “Fearless” moves down one rung to No. 5 with 224,000 (down 6%), while Lady Gaga’s “The Fame” stays put at No. 6 with 169,000 (up 20%). Justin Bieber’s “My World” EP climbs from No. 8 to No. 7 with 157,000 (up 23%) while Carrie Underwood’s “Play On” slides three slots to No. 8 with 153,000 (down less than 1%). Closing out the top 10 is Michael Buble’s “Crazy Love,” down three positions, with 137,000 (down 3%).

Teen Couple Attempts To Set Mother On Fire…….

A 11-year-old girl from Tampa, Florida and her 15-year-old boyfriend are in police custody after it was revealed that the two were planning on committing a horrific crime.

Jack Ault and Samantha Broadhead have been charged with attempted murder, and arson after setting Nancy Broadhead’s room ablaze, with Nancy in it.

Police documents say that the young couple doused the room in gasoline before starting the fire before feeling the scene in her mother’s 2007 Ford Focus.

No clear motive has been set in the attack although local law enforcement believe that the reason is nothing more than “typical teenage angst,” compounded by an argument between the pre-teen and her mother after the latter questioned her daughter about stealing cigarettes from her.

The elder Broadhead, 47, sustained several severe burns and smoke inhalation damage, though it is believe that he injuries are not life threatening.

Samantha is currently undergoing psychiatric evaluations at a local mental facility while her boyfriend is resting in a local juvenile facility.

According to a lawsuit filed by the operators of his Sean John clothing line, Christian Casey LLC, the landlord of the Fifth Avenue building in New York City where the store is located, is responsible for their recent poor sales.

The company claims that the landlord left sidewalk scaffolding in front of their operation causing their sales to decline 50%.

Puff’s Christian Casey LLC is suing for $2.5 million.

Ummm…did it ever occur to them that maybe people just don’t want to wear Sean John anymore?

NBC NY: Most partygoers dead the responsibility of being the designated driver, especially when it comes to New Year’s Eve. Have no fear, Diddy’s here to give you all a ride home.

For the second year in a row, Sean “Diddy” Combs and CÎROC Ultra Premium Vodka are partnering with the Taxi and Limousine Commission to get thousands of people home safely this New Year’s Eve by picking up their transportation tabs.

Diddy and company will be handing out $15 taxi debit cards and one-way fare Metrocards to ensure revelers bring in the new decade safely.

“New York stands as the world’s icon for a New Year’s Eve celebration and Las Vegas is the biggest party destination in the country,” Combs said in a statement. “By bringing this program to both of these great cities we will continue to show the rest of the country that a sophisticated holiday celebration doesn’t end when the ball drops, but when everyone gets home safely.”

“AXON” Taser Camera’s Hope To Give Cops A Fair Chance

Police brutality took a turn for the worst this in 2009, with cases seemingly coming out of the proverbial wood work at every turn.

Citizen vigilance was taken to another level, thanks largely to the rise of camera phones; still, more measures are needed to make sure that those assigned to protect and serve remain faire and balanced in their duty to the people.

Enter TASER International Incorporated, maker of the much loved and dually hated TASER stun gun, to once again offer what they feel is needed to have effective law enforcement.

The company created the AXON head camera, a mobile recording device meant to be worn around the head of an officer, allowing them to capture footage of every potential incident from their vantage point.

TASER Inc. feels that their newest offering will allow officers that are falsely accused of wrongdoing to have a fair chance to clear their name while helping to catch other officers in their wrongdoing. It is also the hope of AXON’s creators that police department will require the camera unit be switched on before any action is taken.

All footage collected during the day is downloaded to an offsite server when officers charge their camera for the day.

So far, only San Jose PD is using the device, with 18 of its 1,300 officers trained and equipped with AXON camera units.

A three-year contract for the system for one officer that includes software and video storage costs $5,700.
