Watch Drake Freak Out After A Lollipop Magic Trick In The Club

We rarely see Drake lose his head, as he’s usually pretty composed, even when viciously attacked in diss tracks.

It looks like we found his weak spot, though.


Street magician Julius Dein has put in work, getting his name out there, regularly freaking people out, and building a magical social media platform for himself.

Dein found himself in front of music’s biggest superstar, and he had to make sure he swept the rapper off his feet.

Dein’s Twitter post showed him asking Drake his favorite superhro, and Drake immediately said “Batman.”

Dein pulled out what seemed to be a regular lollipop, stuck it in his mouth, and when Drake pulled it out, Batman’s severed head appeared in lollipop form.

This of course freaked out Drake, as he yelled, “What the f*ck!” and laughed in amazement.

Diem has a history of revealing how he pulls off his tricks, often incorporating camera tricks. In this case, the lollipop conveniently disappears from frame before he puts it in his mouth.

We’ll let you try to hypothesize what he did with the lollipop during the time it was hidden.

It is also very likely that Drake was in on the whole thing, as he is a really good actor. I mean, he’s successfully played a rapper for over a decade now.

Still, you can choose to believe it was a legit, and the wonderment in Drake’s face was pure. It’s probably more fun that way.

Drake Showed Up To A Market, Locked The Doors And Paid For Everyone’s Groceries

Drake released the music video for single “God’s Plan,” where he said he donated the video’s budget of almost $1 million to give back to the community of Miami, Florida.

A scene in the video shows him hopping on top of a cash register at Sabor Tropical Supermarket, holding a megaphone and saying, “Anything you guys want in the store is free,” and apparently, it was a legitimate surprise for about 50 people inside the store, February 6.

According to Hollywood Pipeline, when Drake went into the store, locked the doors, let the shoppers grab whatever they wanted, and just handed over his credit card.

Customers were interviewed outside of the store, some not even knowing who Drake was, but were excited to get their groceries paid for. Customers didn’t hold back either, some racking up $1,000 bills on their groceries.

Several YouTube videos showed Drake’s impromptu money giveaways, as he even showed up at Miami Senior High School, surprised the students by shooting part of his video there, donated to the school, and have out scholarships.

He distributed the $966,6361.90 at a lot of different places throughout the community. Check out the touching music video below:

Drake has made yet another mogul move — and he wants you to join him in being a mogul, too. The Grammy Award-winning artist recently announced the intention to file an initial public offering (aka an IPO) that will allow people to invest in his Virginia Black American Whiskey brand.

The IPO is slated to begin at the end of the 1st quarter of this year. Individuals interested in learning more about the investment opportunity and registering an indication of interest, along with opening and funding their BANQ® account to purchase shares once the offering commences, can do so here.

Launched in 2017 with spirits producer and entrepreneur Brent Hocking, Virginia Black is an aged Bourbon whiskey that was voted one of the top 100 spirits of 2017 by Wine Enthusiast, earning a 91 point rating.

There’s no denying the new-found popularity of brown spirits. Last year, brown spirits lead growth in the U.S. with American whiskey volumes up 6.8% and revenues of $3.1 billion signifying an increase of 7.7% in 2016.

TriPoint Global Equities, LLC, working with its online division BANQ®, will act as the lead managing selling agent and bookrunner for the offering. The company seeks to raise up to $30 million in its IPO and intends to use the proceeds from the offering to fund expansion, sales and marketing, and for working capital and other general corporate purposes.

“Virginia Black is the perfect combination of exceptionally good juice in exquisite packaging at an accessible price,” says Hocking. “From inception, we wanted everyone to enjoy Virginia Black and are pleased to extend the opportunity to millions of Americans and other investors around the world to become part of the Virginia Black family.”

So, if you’ve decided to cash out early on Bitcoin, you can invest in a more tried and true commodity — booze.

CELEBRITY RIDERS: All The Food 8 Celebs Ask For Backstage

Imagine being so famous and so wanted that you can demand for anything from a private jet to only having blue M&Ms prepared for you. Celebs put in hospitality riders whenever they perform or make appearances, making (negotiable) demands for room temperatures, flowers and decor, and certain brands of alcohol — not to mention, particular amounts of bottles #turnup. It sounds pretty over the top, but also like… we highkey want that life immediately. Curious as to what your fave celebs have on their riders for food/drink selection? Let’s find out.



A post shared by champagnepapi (@champagnepapi) on

If you’re reading this, it’s too late to show up without a bottle of Pinot Grigio. According to Complex Magazine, Drake sticks to his half Jewish culture by demanding for pork-free food, as well as Pinot, Heineken, Jack Daniels, Patron Silver, Grey Goose, and Hennessey. With all these alcoholic demands, we hope he doesn’t plan to Drake and drive.


A post shared by Adele (@adele) on

She could have had it allllllllll, but Adele only has a *few* simple food requests. The soulful singer needs 12 small bottles of still spring water at room temperature, 6 new, washed, and dried large tea mugs with 6 metal teaspoons, 2 “squeezy” bottles of clear honey (not organic), a bottle of the very best quality red wine, and an assortment of chewing gum. She also enjoys a small plate of assorted freshly made and individually wrapped sandwiches to include chicken salad, as well as a selection of fresh fruit — but you’ll be saying hello from the other side if you include any citrus fruit, yikes.

Mariah Carey

A post shared by Mariah Carey (@mariahcarey) on

Known to be one of the biggest divas in the industry, Mariah’s food requests are… well, you can decide if she’s truly a diva after reading it:

12 1 Liters of Fiji Water
3 Bottles Chardonnay — Chilled
12 Cokes
12 Diet Cokes
12 Vanilla Protein Drinks
6 Sparkling Water (Pellegrino)
12 Melon Flavor Gatorade
6 Red Wine Glasses
6 White Wine Glasses
Fried Chicken (warm)
12 Small Bottles water (room temperature)
3 Whole lemons and honey
Sugarless gum

…yeah, and these are just the food requests on the rider. We’re sure Mariah gets a lot of hate for these demands, but she probably just shake, shake, sh-shake, shake, shakes it off.

Alicia Keys

A post shared by Alicia Keys (@aliciakeys) on

Though she might keep on falling in and out of love, she will surely stay hydrated with all the room-temp Evian and Aquafina that she needs. Alicia also asks for cans of chunk white tuna, Nutri-grain bars (blueberry, cherry, apple, strawberry), individual packets of Quaker Oats Instant Oatmeal (brown sugar, apple cinnamon), and an assorted fruit platter with strawberries, seedless red grapes, bananas, mango, blueberries, cantaloupe, and raspberries. She also requests for two cases of beer — one imported and one domestic. No one, no one, NO ONE can keep her away from her seafood and Italian restaurants either, as she requests for three different menus of local restaurants to order meals from as well.

Taylor Swift

A post shared by Taylor Swift (@lurkingtaylor) on

Some people probably question how any performer has so much energy for them to perform so amazingly night after night on tour, but T Swift’s food/beverage requests might be the answer to that. Aside from her stick of butter and 3 boxes of mac/cheese, she needs 2 four-packs of Red Bull, a bag of Twizzlers, a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream, and a pint of their Chocolate Brownie Frozen Yogurt. The sugar overload doesn’t stop there — if she is to arrive before 11 a.m., she needs a grande iced caramel latte with two Sweet-N-Lows, a grande iced Americano with two Sweet-N-Lows and soy milk, and a slice of pumpkin loaf from Starbucks. Hopefully she keeps up regularly with her dentist, or else she’s going to have a blank space baby, and it’ll be where her teeth used to be before the cavities took over.

Rae Sremmurd

A post shared by Rae Sremmurd (@raesremmurd) on

Rae Sremmurd ain’t got no type, Spicy Crunch Dorito Tacos from Taco Bell are the only things that they like. No but really, their rider requirements include two of the aforementioned tacos, 2 dozen chicken wings, 2 bottles of Ace of Spades champagne, 2 bottles of Moet Chandon, and a bottle of Hennessey. Oh, and they also ask for small Super Soakers, beach balls, $300 in single dollar bills, and a 15 passenger van equipped with a stripper pole for airport transfer. That van will be anything but a no flex zone tbh.

Meek Mill

A post shared by Meek Mill (@meekmill) on

Take a look at his not-so-meek list of food requirements.

100 mild or lemon pepper wings
5 lbs of seasoned turkey meat
potato chips, cookies, Doritos
2 half gallons of Simply Raspberry Lemonade

Fresh baked, fried or grilled fish
Real jerk chicken
Oxtails, rice and peas
Mixed Grill, including ribs, steak, BBQ chicken, and shrimp
Roast turkey
Orange Roughy
Chinese Stir-fry
Collard greens, veggies, red beans, rice, yams, sweet potatoes, corn on the cob, etc.


7 bottles Moet Chandon
3 bottles Brignac Brut God Ace of Spade
5 bottles Ciroc
2 bottles Patron Silver

We can only hope that he’s planning to share this with his crew, yikes.

Jason Derulo

A post shared by Jason (@jasonderulo) on

Jason’s long list of demands includes very particular food/drinks, including what he is not down to swallalalala — like Dasani water or Tropicana orange juice. For his gig at Wright State University, he requested a huge list of items, but the best part (imo) is the “medium breed dog” he wanted to play with during the day, because tbh same.

“NO DASANI WATER OR PURIFIED WATER” This demand is so serious since the rider included it in the contract at least three times.
One small to medium breed dog to play with for the day
100% fresh squeezed orange juice (no Tropicana)
3 healthy clean meals and after show food
Real knives, forks, spoons, plates, and napkins ONLY.
Room should be set to 72 degrees.
1 juicer and assorted fresh fruit and vegetables
2 boxes of Uncrustables
5 liters of Gatorade (2 lemon-lime/3 orange)
6 individual bottles of coconut water (NO PULP)
Fresh quality bread

However, his demands don’t stop backstage — check out his entourage and tour bus needs:

5 different menu options which need to include vegan and vegetarian options (Stay away from pizza).
3 10LB Bags of ice
1 bag of Tortilla chips
1 jar of fresh medium salsa
Package of dry Almonds
Organic Moroccan mint tea
6 real coffee mugs
Make your own salad bar
No greasy fried foods
Cold cuts or sandwiches must be accompanied by hot selections in order for it to be acceptable.

The healthier options on the bus make it seem like it’s a Subway on wheels #TheDeruloTrain.

A Woman Broke Into Drake’s House Just To Drink His Sprite

Drake has had a pretty rough April, as he claimed to be racially profiled at a country club during Coachella weekend, and now we’re finding out his Hidden Hills home got broken into earlier this month.

On April 3, Mesha Collins was on her worst behavior, as police found her hiding in Drake’s house, helping herself to some soda and water, according to LA Times.

Drake wasn’t home at the time, per the Huffington Post, but his property manager guided police to the burglar, who was apparently locked in a room.

Not only did she down a Pepsi, Sprite and Fiji water, but she was reportedly wearing one of Drake’s hoodies when police found her.

It’s unknown how she got into the “Yolo Estate” (Yes, that’s literally what Drake’s corny ass named it), as there were no signs of forced entry, but at least she never made it out with any property.

After being arrested and charged with burglary, she was held on $100,000 bail, and will have her day in court Wednesday.

It’s a shame Drake wasn’t home, because he probably would have kept her captive in the room, fallen in love Beauty and the Beast-style, then written a fire album about it.

Drake Eats Some Garbage Sushi, Forced To Cancel Show In Amsterdam

I don’t know what Amsterdam’s reputation with sushi is, but Drake gave it a shot for lunch and paid dearly for it.

According to TMZ, Drake had to cancel his Amsterdam show Tuesday after eating some “bad sushi.”

Apparently the sushi tore up Drake’s stomach so badly that he had to get immediate medical attention and could not go on stage for the 17,000 fans who waited 75 minutes before being told the rapper would not be performing.

The crowd was obviously upset, booing the hell out of the woman who was the bearer of bad news:

They even angrily threw stuff on stage:


To make matters worse, this is reportedly the 3rd time Drake has canceled a show in Amsterdam in the last three months. It’s almost like the universe doesn’t want him to perform there.

That, or maybe there is some truth to the tabloid rumors that Drake got too high to perform. It seems like that source has zero credibility, BUT, how is Drake going to roll into Amsterdam — the capital of dankness — get “sick,” and use the most generic, “it was bad sushi” excuse? That’s the adult equivalent of “My dog ate my homework.” Try to say that at work, and your manager’s going to look at you like you’re a lying sack of shit.

I’m sure he had a nice tummy ache, but the whole situation does sound a little sus.

Regardless, Drake’s going to give it another shot Wednesday night, and hopefully he stays away from seafood.

Here’s What Starbucks Cups Would Look Like If They Partnered With Spotify


Graphic artist Jack Lalley came up with an interesting concept while taking a break from his regular duties. The UK-based designer decided to combine both Starbucks and Spotify into these vibrant cups that feature musical artists and a lyric from one of their hits.

He posted the series on his Behance page which garnered nearly 19,000 views. You can see the designs below in greater detail.




The artists on Lalley’s cups feature a mainstream set of Kanye West, Drake, Ariana Grande, Adele, and Justin Bieber.

We reached out to Lalley to see which was his favorite from the set.

I’m probably most proud of the Kanye West cup, I never planned to use Kanye as one of the artists. Being a fan of his, I used him to test out the concept of the cups I had in my head, just to see how it would visually look. I actually really liked how it turned out and decided to keep it in the project.

We’re almost certain, while there were only five artists featured, it would have taken a fair amount of time to get the design done. We asked Lalley what he would do next if he kept this project going?

One idea I really liked was correlating the Starbucks menu items with the specific lyrics. So for Christmas time when they do their mulled wine, I think it would be cool if that came in a Bing Crosby cup with White Christmas lyrics and so on, through the different items they offer. It would also be really cool if the location of each Starbucks came into play, so the artists and lyrics that were used were local to each shop.

Lalley stresses that he has no affiliation with either Starbucks or Spotify and that this was a passion project rather than something for profit.
