Kurt Cobain's Suicide May Actually Have Been A Murder, Says Former Police Chief Who Is Calling For A Reinvestigation

no title

When Kurt Cobain died in 1994, audiences were stunned that a promising musical genius could take his own life.

Fast forward to 2015, and an individual who investigated the Nirvana frontman's self-inflicted gunshot wound believes Cobain may not have committed suicide.

He may have been murdered.

Norm Stamper was the chief of Seattle police during the time of the grunge legend's passing, and he is calling for a reinvestigation of the 27-year-old's death.

The former officer turned writer told documentary Soaked in Bleach:

"I would tell you right now if I were the Chief of Police, I would reopen this investigation."

While a suicide note was found, there have been a number of widely circulated theories from Nirvana fans that contend the Smells Like Teen Spirit vocalist was the victim of a homicide:

Oscar Pistorius — The South African Athlete Convicted Of Murdering His Girlfriend — Could Already Be Up For Release! WHAT?!

Filed under: Legal MattersViolenceOlympics

no title

Well, it looks like the scales of justice are about to tilt in a controversial way!

Oscar Pistorius, the former Olympic athlete convicted of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013, might soon be getting out of jail!

Back in October, Pistorius was sentenced to five years in prison for "culpable homicide," which is a South African law somewhat similar to manslaughter here in the United States.

The 28-year-old athlete killed Steenkamp on Valentine's Day, 2013, in their home, claiming he thought an intruder was in the bathroom instead of his girlfriend.

South African law dictates that Pistorius must serve at least one-sixth of his sentence, which would be ten months' time.

The parole board is now recommending that Pistorius be released on August 21, 2015 — ten months to the day after he was sentenced in the case.

What do U think — should Pistorius face more punishment after being found guilty of killing Steenkamp?

Vince Vaughn Weighs In On Gun Control With THIS Controversial Comparison!

Filed under: PolitikVince VaughnGQSchoolControversy

no title

Vince Vaughn has never been one to hold his tongue, and his recent statements are bound to ruffle a few feathers.

In the July issue of British GQ, the 45-year-old dishes with the magazine about the second season of True Detective, but the conversation quickly turns political.

From saying Edward Snowden is a hero to calling America's crusade against drugs 'ridiculous', the actor doesn't hold back with his opinions.

However, his views on gun control will certainly shock many readers.

On whether individuals should have the right to bare arms, the Couples Retreat star said:

"I support people having a gun in public full stop, not just in your home. We don't have the right to bear arms because of burglars; we have the right to bear arms to resist the supreme power of a corrupt and abusive government. It's not about duck hunting; it's about the ability of the individual."

He later goes on to theorize that the mass shootings that have happened in recent years — notably 2012's Sandy Hook massacre that left 20 children and six staffers dead — are due to the country's ban on weapons.

"Take mass shootings. They've only happened in places that don't allow guns. These people are sick in the head and are going to kill innocent people. They are looking to slaughter defenceless human beings. They do not want confrontation. In all of our schools it is illegal to have guns on campus, so again and again these guys go and shoot up these f***ing schools because they know there are no guns there. They are monsters killing six-year-olds."

So does this mean that the Minnesota native believes guns should be allowed in schools?

It turns out… yes.

"Of course… Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat. Taking away guns, taking away drugs, the booze, it won't rid the world of criminality."

Do you agree with Vince's controversial statements regarding gun control?!

Raven-Symoné Doesn't Think Harriet Tubman Should Be On The $20 Bill Because She's Not Progressive Enough?!

no title

That's so Raven?!

Recently, a grassroots campaign called "Women On 20s" started a viral frenzy when they proposed that former president Andrew Jackson be taken off the $20 bill and replaced with African-American abolitionist Harriet Tubman — who during the 1800s used the Underground Railroad to rescue approximately seventy family and friends from slavery.

Well apparently Tubman's work just doesn't impress Raven-Symoné!

On Wednesday's episode of The View, the former child star revealed that she didn't like the idea of putting the historical legend on such currency!

She said:

"No offense to everyone that's going to be mad at me for saying this, I don't like that idea… I think we need to move a little bit more forward. Let me just preface that I understand the history, I get it, trust me, I was taught, I was in that culture… I would've chosen Rosa Parks."

As to why she would've chosen Parks over Harriet Tubman, the 29-year-old believes the former is more progressive and more in-line with our current political landscape:

A British bus company thought they had the perfect balance with a steamy new ad campaign — but the people who saw it didn't agree!

Shia LaBeouf Shows Off His Rattail As He Picks Up Logs For No Apparent Reason!

no title

If there was ever a situation that can only be described with several question marks…

This would be it!

On Monday, Shia LaBeouf was seen at the TreePeople Park in Studio City, CA picking up logs…

Without any kind of reason or purpose! Volunteering maybe!?

We're not sure if he was working out, but if he was, his arms sure look mighty buff!

Other outlets are reporting that this could also be some kind of weird art project. We definitely wouldn't put it past him!

As we reported in February, the Fury actor was spotted with a rattail and an eyebrow piercing.

Fast forward to now, it looks like the 28-year-old is still rocking the unique look!

What's also interesting is that the controversial thespian is wearing the same outfit he did two weeks ago. Kind of a fashion faux-pax, but we forgive him!

The only thing that does register in our mind is how hot Shia looks picking up those logs. Let's just say he's definitely giving us wood!
