Word on the Street 6/4/12
1. Many animal lovers find it hard to part with their pets when they die.
So when cat Orville, named after the famous aviator Orville Wright, was run over by a car, his artist owner decided to turn him into a permanent piece of artwork as the ultimate tribute by transforming him into a flying helicopter.
Dutch artist Bart Jansen first stuffed Orville before teaming up with radio control helicopter flyer Arjen Beltman to build a specially-designed flying mechanism to attach to the cat.

(What the hell? This is freaking crazy! I hate animals so much, if I’m being honest with you guys…..so to see someone make their dead animal into “artwork” makes me want to throw up, lol. This is something that I would put under the category of #whitepeopleproblems, lol – J.K.)
2. Gwyneth Paltrow has been criticised for tweeting a rather offensive word – even though she was referencing a song title and didn’t pen the quote herself.
The Shallow Hal actress busied herself on the social networking site last Friday, using the N-word while cheering on her famous friends Jay-Z and Kanye West during their co-headline show in Paris.
Dancing with the superstars during a guest-appearance onstage at their Watch The Throne tour, the mother-of-two then tweeted a photograph with the caption ‘N***as in paris for real’.

(Speaking of #whitepeopleproblems……..this is so DUMB! I swear race baitors will find anything to get mad over just for the attention and spotlight. Leave Ms. Gwyneth alone, you can obviously see by her tweet that there was absolutely no offense intended, so please overreactors #letitgo! #IdontknowwhyImusinghashtagswhenthisisabloglol – J.K.)
3. Nicki Minaj had big plans for Hot 97’s Summer Jam. Mere hours before she was slated to headline the show at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium stage on Sunday – for a hometown crowd of 80,000 – she tweeted in excitement, “History will be made @ Hot 97 Summer Jam tonight. I really hope you’re there to witness it.” That was before Lil Wayne pulled his Young Money star off the bill, before the night was thrown into a shredder, lit on fire, and then reconstructed with spit and tape into something so much better than initially conceived.
Hot 97 DJ Peter Rosenberg has a reputation for being a bomb-thrower with a bald head and a smirk. At around 3 p.m. on Sunday, while introducing Kendrick Lamar on the pre-show stage, Rosenberg hit his usual talking points: “I know there are some chicks here waiting to sing [Nicki Minaj’s] ‘Starships’ later. I’m not talking to y’all right now. Fuck that bullshit. Bullshit! I’m here to talk about real hip-hop shit.”

(Millions of people in the United States and billions around the world still depend on radio today for their daily information and entertainment. It’s a medium that I love even more than television because there’s so much freedom with the format of any given show. The problem radio faces is that you don’t have to listen to it anymore to hear the latest music because of YouTube, Pandora and Steve Jobs.
Most people in the U.S. listen to radio because of the personalities, like ME lol, that you get to hear. But some radio stations, like Hot 97 take it way to far and try to create dumb beefs like this one. You may not like “Starships”, but you don’t have to be disrespectful about it….you know what I mean? – J.K.)
——>>>>> Finally, here are two very interesting but weird videos I’d like to share with you that have been trending today. One features my future wife (Kim K., in case you don’t know) and the other one is kinda annoying:
