Rapper Styles P Opens Up About His Daughter’s Suicide

Rapper Styles P shared an emotional Instagram post on Sunday that his 20-year-old daughter, Tai Styles, committed suicide last month.

“My baby girl took her life and there are no words to describe the day to day pain we have to endure and maintain through but in dealing with pain you find yourself dealing with the creator and asking questions and going through emotions most would not understand,” the Lox rap group member wrote.

He prompted his followers to never lose sight of the things in life that matter the most.

“I just want to tell yall keep it family 1st and don’t get lost and lose your focus,” he wrote. “We lost a daughter but gained an angel.”

Read his entire message below:

I rarely speak on my personal issues and i usually express my pain the through music but today I will share a little with you last month my wife and I lost a daughter and my son lost a sister . My baby girl took her life and there are no words to describe the day to day pain we have to endure and maintain through but in dealing with pain you find yourself dealing with the creator and asking questions and going through emotions most would not understand. So I'm taking this time out to express a few things to y'all because life is short and we are not promised tomorrow. I like to deal with simple math I know I am 180- 180+ but im trying my best to live on the positive side of things . I have truly tried to live up to the code of being a gentleman and gangster to fullest of my ability. I have been chasing the dollar bill since I was 12 years old I hustled I worked legal jobs and even manage to make my dream of making it as a rapper come true I have popped bottles before it was the thing to do , I have owned beamers, benzos , rovers, trucks etc etc etc I have lived in the ritz ,owned condos , houses traveled a lot of places etc etc etc but I can honestly tell you don't none of that shit add up or equal to love!! I have lost my brother , father , aunt , grandmother in law and too many good friends/ brothers and now my daughter!!!! But the only thing that can be done is to leave it in the creators hands . But I wouldn't be me if I didn't take this time out to say from the most humbled part of my heart and soul to say to yall that the dream most of us chase is not !!I repeat is not !!more valuable than the love you get from your family and friends it may seem like it is but it ain't they print money and make material shit everyday but once you used a love one that's it the spirit is with you but you will miss the physical and Won't be able to speak to them how you want to until you get home to the other side. So I just want to tell yall keep it family 1st and don't get lost and lose your focus the fam is way more important than anything else …. We lost a daughter but gained an angel . Love is love ..ghost

This ‘Breaking Bad’ Coffee Shop Will Feed Your Caffeine Addiction

Attention “Breaking Bad” fans and coffee addicts: There is a “BB”-themed cafe that exists in the world, and it’s perfect. 

Meet Walter’s Coffee Roastery, a cafe in Istanbul, Turkey created as an homage to the hit AMC show. And judging by the coffee shop’s Instagram page, it’s clear owner Deniz Kosan took no half measures when setting it up. 

The branding in this place is so spot on. From the hazmat suit-wearing baristas to the periodic tables on the walls to the beakers that serve as cups, Walter’s Coffee Roastery has the spirit of the series down pat. 

They even serve a hefty breakfast plate including pancakes with ol’ Heisenberg’s face sprinkled on them with powdered sugar. (Walt Jr. would approve.)

The only thing you can’t get is an order of Walt and Jesse’s signature “blue sky,” though they do offer a very convincing sugary substitute. 

On top of all that, the staff roast their own coffee beans in house, and by the looks of things, they take their coffee seriously. Plus, Turkish coffee is considered part of the country’s “intangible cultural heritage” confirmed by UNESCO, so it must be good.

We see a trip to Turkey in our near future.

Danielle Brooks Shows Off Body Confidence With Gym Selfie

Danielle Brooks’ latest Instagram post is the perfect dose of body confidence.

The “Orange Is The New Black” actress shared a photo of herself at the gym to celebrate something she’s always wanted to do: work out in only a sports bra, without shame.

 

Brooks explained to her 1 million followers that the moment was significant for her because she has “felt shameful” in the past of her body. But not anymore.

“Today my inner being told me to turn up the notch on my self-love,” she wrote in the caption. “I should not be ashamed of my body. I’m not a walking imperfection! I’m a Goddess. Secondly, I’m a confident woman! That doesn’t stop once I take off my spanx.”

Brooks has been vocal about the importance of self-love, writing an essay on the topic for Glamour magazine and frequently adding hashtags like #lovethyself and #voiceofthecurves to her posts. Two weeks ago, she announced on Instagram she was joining People Style Watch for a #LoveYourShape campaign, prompting others to share their photos with the hashtag.

 

Now that’s what body positivity looks like.

Joel Edgerton Admits He Wasn’t The Friendliest Kid Back In High School

Joel Edgerton’s new thriller “The Gift,” which he wrote, directed and stars in, explores what happens when an old grudge compels a high school acquaintance to come back to haunt a young married couple. When Edgerton stopped by HuffPost Live on Tuesday to discuss his role in the film, he remembered the ups and downs of his own high school years.

“To be honest, like in the development of the script, I had to really remember my high school years and go, ‘There were times where I wasn’t a good person.’ There were times where I felt the threat of navigating school, trying to avoid certain people who were bullying me. So I could understand both sides of the coin,” he told host Josh Zepps.

While Edgerton said his school life closely resembled the ’80s coming-of-age hit “The Wonder Years,” he admitted he wasn’t always the straight-laced Kevin Arnold character.

“I wouldn’t call myself a bully. I wasn’t like your typical [kind of bully who was] waiting around the corner to try to steal some kid’s lunch or whatever, but I remember being part of that pack mentality, which is all fear-based,” he said. “It’s like if I can be part of the group, then I’ll survive. And if I’m part of the group, unfortunately sometimes it means excluding other kids. That’s definitely a form of bullying.”

How Did the Song “Let it Go” in Frozen Save Elsa From Being a Villain?

It should come as as no surprise to any observers of the film-making process (particularly original stories) that what actually ends up on the screen is a result of a series of edits, evolutions and adjustments to the original story of a film. Just a quick glance at the history of Movie Legends Revealed shows examples like E.T. evolving from a horror film to a family-friendly drama, Godzilla evolving from a giant ape or a giant octopus into his more familiar final form and Darth Vader going from being Anakin Skywalker’s killer to actually BECOMING Anakin Skywalker.

However, Disney’s recent hit film, Frozen, had a particularly interesting inspiration for its evolution – as it turns out, it has a song to thank for “rescuing” Princess Elsa from being the villain of Frozen.

So how did the future hit song “Let it Go” change the entire scope of the film? Let’s find out!

Tina Fey Thinks Donald Trump Is ‘Great For Comedy’

In 2008, Tina Fey proved that comedy and politics are pretty much indistinguishable. Now, as the 2016 primary fights heat up, she thinks the latest crop of candidates could prove just as entertaining.

At a Television Critics Association summer press tour event for her Netflix series “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” Fey said she thinks Donald Trump’s presidential bid makes particularly good joke fodder.

“It’s great for comedy,” she said at the Tuesday morning panel. “It’s one of those things where I’m sure ‘Saturday Night Live’ wishes they were on the air right now … next year at this time you’ll be doing a panel with just Darrell Hammond.”

Fey said she doesn’t yet have “fully formed jokes” about the 2016 race, but if history teaches us anything, it’s that Tina Fey may once again single-handedly alter the course of human events.

Ian and Anthony on “SMOSH: The Movie” and Their Sexy Wax Figures

It’s been a big weekend for Smosh’s Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox, who were the first guests on our debut episode of the What’s Trending Podcast and made it to the top of iTunes with their feature film debut. The YouTube superstars took some time at the Firetalk stage at Vidcon to tell us about “SMOSH: The Movie” which premiered on Friday.

Their Madame Tussauds wax figures were also unveiled on the red carpet – an honor that was requested by their legions of fans.

So which ones are hotter, the real Smosh or the wax figure Smosh?

“I’d say the wax versions of us, because they don’t talk,” said Anthony. “And there’s some muscle definition but it’s really hard, so it feels like you’re really buff even though you’re not.”

Ian added, “I also felt my bulge, and it is also very hard.”

You can buy the movie on Vimeo right now at www.smoshthemovie.com.

Roger Goodell Will Uphold Tom Brady’s 4-Game Deflategate Suspension

The NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell announced Tuesday that the league will uphold the four-game suspension of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady for his involvement in Deflategate.

The decision follows the appeal filed by the NFL Players’ Association on behalf of Brady last month and reveals further unsavory tactics by the quarterback during the time of the league’s investigation.

“Mr. Brady engaged in conduct detrimental to the integrity of, and the public confidence in, the game of professional football,” Goodell’s decision said.

Brady was originally handed the penalty in May following the release of the 243-page Wells report, which detailed that Patriots’ personnel “more probable than not” deliberately deflated game balls to give the quarterback an advantage and that Brady similarly was aware. The league at the time also fined the Patriots $1 million, and stripped them of their 2016 first-round draft pick and 2017 fourth-round draft pick. Patriots owner Robert Kraft said the team will accept those punishments imposed on the club.

Brady denied any involvement in “the scheme to deflate the footballs,” Goodell said. But the commissioner said he “cannot credit this denial, citing an “unusual pattern of communication” between Brady and the Patriots staff, who are believed to have tampered with the footballs.

“In short, the available electronic evidence, coupled with information compiled in the investigators’ interviews, leads me to conclude that Mr. Brady knew about, approved of, consented to, and provided inducements and rewards in support of a scheme by which [Patriots staff] tampered with game balls,” Goodell said. 

Goodell’s own response to the NFLPA’s appeal further condemned Brady, who he said on or about  ”the very day” he was interviewed for the Wells investigation on March 6, ordered his cell phone to be destroyed. Brady had been using the phone since November 2014, which therefore, included the period of the “deflategate” game in question: the AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts on January 18.

“At the time that he arranged for its destruction, Mr. Brady knew that Mr. Wells and his team had requested information from that cellphone in connection with their investigation,” Goodell said in his decision.

He added that the move was not only “very troubling,” but shows that Brady “made a deliberate effort” to prevent investigators from obtaining information from his cellphone. 

The NFL commissioner added that despite repeated requests for information form Brady’s phone, it was not confirmed until the day of the appeal hearing in June that it was, in fact, destroyed. Goodell further stated that Brady “failed to cooperate” with the Wells investigation, which found some records of communication between Brady and the two Patriots staff members (who have since been indefinitely suspended by the team) prior to and following the Deflategate fallout. 

In particularly, shady behavior from the quarterback, Goodell detailed that Brady testified in his appeal hearing that “it is his practice” to destroy cell phones when he acquires a new one. He just so happened to conveniently obtain a new cellphone the day he was interview for the deflategate investigation and, aw shucks, forgot to tell the league or investigators that he did so, until four months later.

Goodell also took aim at the NFLPA, characterizing the union’s failure to seek out the Patriots’ staff involved for testimony “an adverse inference,” particularly the individual, who in texts, called himself “the deflator.”

Requests to Brady’s lawyer and the NFLPA for comment have not yet been returned.

Goodell’s full decision is below.
