His Katy Perry problems must seem so small compared to this.
After verbally abusing the pop star with violent tweets after she questioned one of his songs, Chief Keef was arrested for the second time in a week on Monday.
According to Illinois police, the 17-year-old rapper was actually speeding a mind-boggling 110mph in a 55 zone. This comes after his weed-related arrest in Atlanta.
Cops saw his BMW zoom down Winnetka Road in Northfield, IL around 3:45am, and obviously they had to pull him over before he killed someone — including himself!!
Not only was he speeding like he owned an Autobahn, he was driving

As the fearless film critic would likely say were he still alive, "the show must go on!"
Roger Ebert died yesterday, succumbing to complications from cancer, but his rich legacy lives on.
For the 15th year in a row, cinephiles and superstars alike will flock to Illinois to share their love of great movies at Ebertfest. The April 17-21 film festival won't be the same, obviously, without the presence of the legendary critic, but he will be there in spirit!
Plenty of celebz will be there, too!

R. Kelly lost millions of dollars in a foreclosure auction of his Illinois home Monday!
He must be pissed!!
Then again, there are worse things in life than being pissed off! Being pissed on, for instance!
The Space Jam singer took out a $3.5 mil mortgage to build his crazy big dream crib back in '97, but he's been having trouble keeping up with his payments for over a year now!

The only reason why we're joking in the headline is that the dude is fine — he only dislocated his shoulder. His friends were able to rescue him without much struggle, even though we bet it was terrifying!!
A golfer, walking along like golfers do, disappeared into an 18 foot sinkhole while playing a round of golf with some buddies.
Just kidding! He actually saw an unusual depression in the course and decided it was worth his time to go check it out, just to see how awkward it would be to have to hit from! As soon as he stepped on it, that's when he fell!
Here's what he said:

We're guessing some couples in Illinois are going to have to turn those candlelight dinner plans into engagement parties tonight!
Just in time for Valentine's Day, the Illinois Senate just passed a bill to legalize same-sex marriage!
The bill passed 34-21 in the Senate and now must move to the House to be made fully legal.
This will make Illinois the tenth state to make gay marriage legal, but three more states are just behind.
Rhode Island, Delaware, and Hawaii have each introduced their own marriage equality acts into their legislatures.
Looks like 13 is going to be the lucky number for someone very soon!
Yay Land Of Lincoln!
