Is Weezy a prophet? A look back at some of the rapper’s choice song lyrics suggests that he was familiar with seizures long before one almost took his life.
Digging deep into Lil Wayne’ssong collection, you’ll find that he was quite fond of using seizures metaphorically. That will likely change now.
Lil Wayne Raps About Seizures
In multiple songs, Weezy conjures up the image of seizing but always lightheartedly. On his guest verse on Wiz Khalifa’s“Work Hard, Play Hard,” Lil Wayne vulgarly describes his lovemaking skills, saying, “I swallow that pearl, tongue like I’m having a seizure.” The juxtaposition of his seizure lyric with the title of the song is terribly ironic — working hard and playing hard is reportedly what put Wayne in the hospital.
In “Time To F**k” by Lil Wayne, he again uses seizing symbolically to describe sex, rapping, “I’ll give that girl a seizure.”
And finally, on his song “F**ck You,” Wayne describes how being so rich makes him feel: “My dough sick, on occasions I catch seizures.”
A human seizure is such a visceral, visual thing, so that’s probably why Lil Wayne was drawn to using it to make comparisons. But his lyrics do minimize the seriousness of the condition, which he now knows as well as anyone. After nearly losing his life on Mar. 15, it might be time to retire the metaphor.
Lil Wayne’s Seizures: Caused By A Toxic Concoction?
Lil Wayne’s near-fatal seizures were reportedly a result of a dangerous concoction he imbibed. A source told Media Takeout that before being rushed to the hospital, Weezy drank a mixture of pain-killing drugs like codeine, prescription medications, and potent chemicals like anti-freeze.
The mixture allegedly should have killed him, if it hadn’t been for quick-thinking doctors pumping his stomach multiple times to rid the fluids from his system.
Lil Wayne’s traumatic past few days may signal the coming of a changed man. Or at least that’s what we’re hoping — that we’ll never have to hear “Lil Wayne” and “seizure” in the same sentence again.
Do Weezy’s seizure-centric lyrics shock you, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
Stephenie Meyer Feels Responsible For Rob & Kristen
Broaching the topic of whether or not Stephenie feels responsible for exposing her young stars to unimaginable public scrutiny with the British magazine The Times, she says, “Absolutely.” Stephenie continues saying that her guilt hurts even worse because neither Rob nor Kristen are attention junkies.
“Here's the thing: there are some actors who are looking to be world famous, to be that household name, and although they might discover that there are a lot of negative things involved in that, it's what they want. But that doesn't apply to Kristen and Rob. That's what makes it kind of ironic and tragic."
Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart: Would They Do It All Again?
Stephenie continues and introduces a hypothetical situation that we’ve never though of: “If they had the choice,” she says, “I’ve no idea if they’d even do Twilight again. I just don’t know. I think this has all come at a heavy price.”
It’s an interesting question: After having their lives altered so drastically, would Rob and Kristen do it again?
RPatz and KStew obviously have Twilight – and Stephenie Meyer — to thank for a few things. Both of their careers skyrocketed because of the series and now they can pretty much choose where they want to go from here. And in more intimate terms, Rob and Kristen’s relationship grew out of Bella and Edward, so they can thank the movies for that as well.
Then again, the unbelievable popularity of the movie may have brought unwanted demand on Rob and Kristen and unavoidable pressure to their relationship. The unending exposure might have contributed to the couple’s separation, so perhaps they’d prefer that the relationship never even began — that’s what Stephenie seems to be suggesting.
If you ask us, we want them to do it all over again! What about you, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
Lil Wayne’s near-fatal seizure sent the pop culture world reeling on Friday, Mar. 15. Now we may know what did him in. Keep reading for all the details.
Lil Wayneis reportedly doing well and recovering in an Los Angeles hospital, but for a good while on Mar. 15, it didn’t appear as though he would make it.
Lil Wayne’s Seizure: A Disastrous Drink
Reportedly, it was only after doctors pumped his stomach and purged its contents that Weezy’s condition began to stabilize. So what did he consume?
According to MediaTakeout, a source claims that Lil Wayne drank a “Bootleg” syrup that was given to him by a friend. The concoction was reportedly a mix of promethazine and codeine, both of which are strong pain medications. But that’s not all — the drink also contained a number of other prescription drugs, and doctors allegedly also found traces of anti-freeze in Weezy’s system.
The drug-heavy syrup was highly potent — if this report is true, Lil Wayne is lucky to be alive.
Lil Wayne’s Continued Struggle With Sizzurp
The “Bootleg” is just another, stronger form of purple drink, or sizzurp, which is basically a part of Lil Wayne’s persona at this point. In the past when he faced questions about his drug use, Wayne said, “I’m gonna do what I want… I don’t care if it was heroin in my cup. It’s my cup, f**k you.”
And less than six months ago, Lil Wayne was admitted to a hospital after experiencing “seizure-like symptoms.”
He can’t keep living this way. Weezy has had several opportunities to change his attitude — perhaps this one, the gravest yet, will make him change his ways.
How sad. We’ve just learned the tragic news that the iconic Grand Ole Opry veteran passed away on Mar. 14 from Alzheimer’s disease.
Jack Greene, legendary country star and “There Goes My Everything” singer, died in his sleep on Mar. 14. He was 83 years old.
Jack Greene: Country Star Passes Away
Nicknamed “The Jolly Green Giant” due to his height, Jack won the hearts of the country world with his deep, smooth voice and jubilant on-stage presence.
Jack had a wonderful career — he was nominated for three Grammy Awards, and in 1967 won “Male Vocalist of the Year,” “Single of the Year,” “Album of the Year,” and “Song of the Year” at the very first Country Music Association Awards for his hit song, “There Goes My Everything.”
The singer was a native of Tennessee, where he got his start in the music business as a radio disc jockey. Since then he was a mainstay in the country music scene, releasing hit singles in the 60′s, 70′s, AND 80′s. Up until his retirement in 2011, Jack was a familiar face at the Grand Ole Opry, a place that was like a second home for him, where he almost always received a standing ovation.
Grand Ole Opry announcer Eddie Stubbs said, “Newcomers and Opry veterans alike would stand in the wings and marvel at what they were witnessing,” and also made sure to always introduce Jack as “One of the Grand Ole Opry’s finest singers, and one of its finest gentlemen.”
Funeral plans have not yet been made, according to a statement released by the Grand Ole Opry.
Our thoughts are with Jack’s friends and family — he will be missed.
For the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, there’s not many things that get under their skin. However, in a new documentary called ‘Our Queen,’ we get a peak into the squabbles that the royal couple get into.
Soon-to-be mother Kate Middleton and her adorable husband Prince William have got to be one of the sweetest couples of all time. So, when their new documentary airs in the UK on Monday, Mar. 16, will the viewers be surprised to see the one thing that makes the royal couple argue?
Kate Middleton & Prince William: Why They Fight
British Olympic boxer Anthony Ogogo reveals in a new documentary, Our Queen, that the one thing that gets the couple tense is the Scrabble! Yes, the board game.
“When William and Kate play Scrabble they don't usually finish it – because one of them slams it shut,” he says in the new film. Anthony says in the new documentary how funny it was when Kate explained to him that her and her prince charming (literally) are extremely competitive with one another.
Well, this is about the cutest thing we’ve ever heard. And we thought the royal couple couldn’t get any more perfect!
Then, insider revealed that their daughter’s name will be Elizabeth Diana Carole in honor of Queen Elizabeth! Also, Elizabeth is Kate’s middle name. The middle name Diana is for William’s late mother Princess Diana and Carole is for Kate’s mother’s name. Also, Carole is the Latin variation of Charles.
We’re so happy that the only thing this perfect couple is arguing about is board games! Whew!
‘The Client Lis’ actress may have a hit TV show, but she has one thing missing in her life — kids! She has been reportedly worried that she’ll end up single after her long list of failed relationships, and thinks freezing her eggs is a good option.
Jennifer Love Hewitt, 34 has been dating her costar, Brian Hallisay, 34 since last spring, but it seems like the actress is not expecting the couple to start a family anytime soon! The busy actress has been asking around about freezing her eggs, according to a new report.
“She has been asking a few women she knows about freezing her eggs,” a source revealed to Us Weekly. The source also claims that the actress “feels worried that she will end up single, since none of her relationships have been successful.” How sad!
“If it doesn’t work out with Brian, she can still be a mom one day,” continued the source, ensuring that this is simply a backup plan for Jennifer.
Jennifer Has Been Wanting Kids For A While
“I would love to have babies. I’m obsessed with babies,” the bombshell told Us back in 2010. “I would love to have them one day.”
Although the actress has gone through her fair share of breakups, she has used them to her advantage by learning from them.
“I think you learn a lot from every break up,” the star explained. “It is so much more important that you love yourself rather than someone else. I’ve had breakups and they’ve been public, but I don’t regret any of them. I adore them all. I’ve gotten very lucky.”
So HollyMoms, do you think Jennifer is giving up too soon? Should she freeze her eggs?
“He loves it,” a source close to Kanye exclusively tells HollywoodLife.com about Kim’s pregnant body. ”He loves everything about Kim K – pregnant, not pregnant, skinny, big.”
The source said that Kim was Kanye’s “dime piece” and that there isn’t one thing about her that he doesn’t love.
While Kim and Kanye have been doing a great deal of travelling, our source also revealed that she will most likely be having her baby in Los Angeles.
“She wants to stay close to home with her family and her friends,” he told us. “They’re just taking everything one step at a time.”
Kim Shows Off Gorgous Materinity Outfit
On Friday, Mar. 15, Kim stepped out showing that she’s still got it, according to The Daily Mail. Wandering around Beverly Hills, Cali. with friend Brittany Gastineau Kim was wearing a loose fitting, cut-out beige dress, a white blazer and gold gladiator sandals. With her Chanel bag in hand, Kim proved that she’s back to being that fashionista she was pre-baby weight.
Showing off her new bangs, Kim wore her locks in loose natural waves and her face was glowing. With just the right amount of bronzer, her skin looked amazing and her eyes popped as she lined them with dark eye liner and shadow.
Kim’s Struggle With Maternity Clothes
Kim, 32, recently took to her mommy blog to explain that it wasn’t easy for her to find clothes that flattered her always-growing figure.
“I’ve found that I’ve gained inches and I’ve gotten wider but my belly hasn’t popped yet, so I struggle finding things that don't make me look heavy,” she wrote.
Then, a close friend to Kim also recently told HollywoodLife.com that “Kim’s body type is very difficult to dress, and wearing loose-fitting maternity clothing will turn her into a box.”
We’ve never seen a box looking this beautiful! And apparently, Kanye hasn’t either!
It’s Mar. 16 — just one day before St. Patrick’s Day! Just in time we have this hilarious video of K-Stew explaining the holiday. Well, it’s SORT OF K-Stew. Click to see what I mean.
Have you ever taken a sip of a shamrock shake on St. Patrick’s Day and wondered what the heck the holiday was all about? Well, perfect! Because Kristen Stewartis here to explain everything. And when we say Kristen Stewart, we mean a girl doing the greatest impersonation of Kristen Stewart ever.
Kristen Stewart’s Hilarious Impersonator
The online video website Barely Political put together a helpful guide to St. Patty’s Day and thankfully, they thought who better to teach us all than a K-Stew impersonator!
Trust me when I say that Laura McDonald, the actress behind the impression, totally nails Kristen! She has all the quirks — the awkward scrunching up of her body, the rapid eye movement, the nervous babbling — it’s as if K-Stew decked out in a huge leprechaun hat!
If you recognize Laura instead of just mistaking her for Kristen, that’s because she’s done this before — she’s a pro at mocking our favorite Twilight actress!
St. Patrick’s Day: What You Didn’t Know
Besides Laura’s spot-on impression, the video has some other hilarious moments. Such as Laura explaining the St. Patrick is the patron saint Patrick Swayze, Patrick Ewing, and Neil Patrick Harris, “who is one-third Patrick.”
She also tells us that St. Patrick was a pretty nice guy for driving the snakes out of Ireland — after all, “he didn’t have to give them a ride!”
Nothing like a little K-Stew humor to get you in the mood for St. Patrick’s Day. Watch the whole video below and tell us what you think, HollywoodLifers!

“Growing out my stash” Justin wrote on the selfie shot he took on his account.
He followed that with close ups of his friends with mustaches as well, including Tyler, The Creator. He then shared a second picture, a very close up shot showing that he is in fact, growing his facial hair.
Justin’s Proving He’s Mature Enough For Selena
Since Justin and Selena split, she has been seen out and about trying to move on, and even recently put out a song that was clearly about him.
“Selena is flirting with as many hot guys as she can right now,” a source recently told HollywoodLife.com. "Because she's trying to get the last few years of her life back. Justin had money and fancy sh*t, but she's hot as hell and wants to find a good guy. He was just a little boy and she needs a man, so yeah, she will go on a ton of dates and be happy and forget about Justin.”
After Justin’s recent behavior, we’ve got a feeling it will take a little more than growing out his peach fuzz to impress Selena, but we have faith he can do it. These two have the matches, they just have to figure out how to relight the flame.
What do YOU think of Justin’s new facial hair, HollywoodLifers? Tell us below!
Bring your daughter to work day! Jessica shared a candid moment with her daughter Maxwell backstage on set of her hit show ‘Fashion Star.’ The adorable baby girl visited her mom while she was in the hair and makeup chair!
Jessica Simpson, 32, is back to work on the set of her hit NBC show Fashion Star, but she is still in full-on mommy mode backstage! The proud mom, who is pregnant with her second child, showed off her baby girl while getting her har and makeup done before taping.
“Isn’t she cute?” Jessica says, in a candid video posted to her website JessicaSimpson.com. The video shows backstage footage from the March 15 episode of Fashion Star, and Jessica getting ready for the show’s big return to TV. ”She’s my little munchkin,” the doting mom adds.
Jessica Simpson Reveals She’s Having A Boy
Even though Jessica returned to work after welcoming Maxwell, she’s already got another bun in the oven — and this time, it’s a boy! The fashion designer and singer accidentally let it slip on Jimmy Kimmel Live that she was pregnant with a boy.
"The crazy thing is I never knew a wiener could make me nauseous," Jessica said on the late nigh talk show. When she realized what she had let slip, she said "oh shhhh, I guess I just told the world that I'm having a boy!"
Jimmy laughed off the slip-up and congratulated her, and Jessica responded, "Thank you, I'm sweating now!"

It’s hard enough playing one compelling character on a TV show, but two? That’s a task very few actresses are able to tackle successfully, which is why HollywoodLife.com decided it’s time to pay tribute to our favorite doppelgangers — beginning with Selena Gomez, who pulls double duty in her new movie,The Wizards Return.
If you’re a regular HollywoodLifer, you already know how much we love Nina Dobrev. For the past four years, she’s been wow-ing us on The Vampire Diaries, playing vampires Katherine and now-vampire Elena. No matter who her characters are hooking up with — or feasting on — we’d gladly stick with Nina for eternity.
Ironically a dead ringer for Nina, The Lying Game‘s Alexandra Chando has also become an HL favorite. The only thing more impressive than the barrage of plot twists on her ABC Family series is Alexandra’s ability to play total-opposite twins Sutton and Emma with gravity and depth. Here’s hoping for many more seasons to come!
And then there are the ladies of Storybrooke. Once Upon A Time is one of our favorite Sunday shows, largely because of Ginnifer Goodwin and Lana Parrilla‘s combined performances. Their characters’ rivalry spans two worlds and four individual characters, and we’re completely under their collective spell.
Finally, Selena’s not the only Disney darling on our list. How could we exclude Miley Cyrus, who starred on — arguably — the most successful Disney Channel series ever? She may be sporting a wild faux hawk now, but in her heyday, Miley played two adorable characters: superstar Hannah Montana and every-day girl Miley Stewart. She carried those roles from childhood to adulthood — and we loved watching her evolve every step of the way.
And yes, I know I could have gone even further back — Buffy had Buffybot on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Sabrina had Katrina on Sabrina the Teenage Witch — but I decided to keep this crew limited to the past five years.
HollywoodLifers, who’s YOUR favorite pair of TV doppelgangers? Browse the gallery, then cast your vote below!
Justin and Selena’s relationship has provided chart-topping material for their careers. The singers have poured their hearts out in their music, and now we’re taking a look at the biggest messages they’ve sent each other thus far!
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez aren’t shy about expressing their feelings. From “I love you” to “You’re a douchebag,” the pair shows how they really feel about each other in a style all their own. Though the messages have changed a bit from the beginning of their romance, we look at all their biggest song and video messages to each other to date.
Selena Gomez Doesn’t Love Justin Bieber Anymore
Selena was head-over-heels for Justin back when they started dating. She gushed over the Biebs in her hit single “Love You Like A Love Song.” However, her lyrics are a little outdated now that they’re broken up. She’s singing and dancing to a whole new beat and throwing a few disses at her ex.
Selena and her “girls” released a choreographed video to her bestie Taylor Swift‘s hit song, “I Knew Your Were Trouble.” If she wasn’t taking a stab at Justin there, she released a new choreographed video in March 2013 dancing to an even more suggestive track — this time possibly calling the Biebs a douchebag. Ouch!
Justin Bieber Tries To Win Selena Back With His Music
Though Selena took a few shots at Justin, the heartbroken stud remains hopeful. He released a string of songs supposedly about his ex. In his song, “Yellow Raincoat,” he hints at their struggling relationship in singing, “Cause the fame, and the money, and the girl will drive you crazy." He also shared an even more powerful message when he released ”As Long As You Love Me.”
Clearly Justin still cares about his lost love. He revealed in an interview with Billboard that Selena was the inspiration behind "Be Alright," one of the most romantic tracks on his album, Believe.
