Limp Bizkit rages during its headlining set at Musink

The most talked about and interesting act on the bill for the 12th Annual Musink Tattoo Convention & Music Festival, held at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa March 8-10, was ’90s nu metal and rap rock band Limp Bizkit.

SXSW Film Review: Matthew McConaughey in ‘The Beach Bum’

How can you tell when a movie star is committed to being taken seriously?

Thanks to KROQ’s event manager Chris Hudson, it also turned into a two-night festival — Friday, March 8 and Saturda...

Snoop Dogg Meant No Offense With Lakers 'Slave Ship' Rant

As is likely the case with most Lakers fans at the moment, the team's current extended run of incompetence got the best of Snoop Dogg. Snoop's reaction called for coach Luke Walton to be fired, and also for the team to upgrade LeBron's supporting cast, demanding that the roster be moved via a "slave ship." That comment was later clarified when sources close to Snoop​​​ spoke with TMZ. Get a slave ship, and ship all them sorry motherf*ckers the f*ck outta here!" Snoop said of the n...

Millennials Don’t Want Your Fancy Food Packaging — They Just Want Transparency

On a Saturday morning in Brooklyn’s Grand Army Plaza, you’ll find a cluster of canvas tents, root vegetables, some 200 dogs, and even more reusable tote bags. In August, you might see strawberries, and in February, turnips, but for the most part, few things change. In fact, since the market’s humble beginnings in 1979 — before Instagramming Swiss chard was a thing — there’s been just one truly notable shift: the crowd.Where you once found older neighborhood natives and restaurateurs, you’ll no...

Snoop Dogg offers up his Lakers box seats for $5 in explosive, expletive-laden rant

As if the Los Angeles Lakers' season couldn't get any worse, the team has now lost Snoop Dogg. Following the Lakers' embarrassing loss Saturday to the Western Conference's worst team in the Phoenix Suns, the Long Beach born-and-bred rapper took to social media. In a single-minute video, he profanely blasted the team's play, demanded most of the team be traded and/or fired and offered up his booth at Staples Center to fans for $5 for the rest of the season.
