Homophobic musician Buju Banton arrested

USA Today reported earlier that Buju Banton was arrested on a drug charge and is currently being held in a Miami federal prison. The L.A. Times mentioned the following:

He’s been in custody since Thursday, arrested on a charge of conspiracy to possess, with intent to distribute, more than 5 kilograms of cocaine, a DEA spokesman said.

Banton, who just earned a Grammy nomination, is expected to appear in court today.

The singer is no stranger to controversy. He’s infamous for his severe homophobic lyrics in his music. Mostly in his song “Boom Boom Bye Bye” where he sings of torturing and killing gay men. The local LGBT community protested Banton’s concert this past October at the Palm Beach Club in Deep Ellum. Efforts to have Banton’s show canceled were unsuccessful.как продвинуть бренд

George Michael arrested … again

George Michael’s arrest record just got a bit lengthier. The singer was arrested and questioned by police Friday for yet another car incident.  Michael swears he was “stone cold sober” when his Land Rover hit a tractor-trailer in the wee hours of Friday morning in London.

Sadly, these snafus are more expected from Michael than a new CD. Maybe he should try sticking to his Dallas home. He seems to stay out of trouble in these parts.услуги раскрутка сайта продвижение
