Rapper and entrepreneur, Jay-Z has never backed down from an opportunity to defend his title as the best MC. However, this time, the battle is with naysayers that have spoken to soon of the seemingly unsuccessful Tidal music streaming start up that Jay-Z has launched. In his first time online in months, the mogul took to twitter to dispell the rumors of Tidal’s failing.
We hope that this silenced the bad publicity, but surely, as long as there’s competition, there will be a campaign to smear. Salute to Jay-Z.

Real estate investor, Robert Durst just might be found guilty of murder this time around if the jury decides to convict him based on The Jinx: Life & Deaths of Robert Durst, a document-series that airs on HBO. That, in all actuality, could be grounds for a dismissal of evidence, and even more, or the entire case altogether, because a jurors obligation to fairly rule upon a verdict means that they haven’t been influenced by outside factors. HBO’s docu-series, although groundbreaking and entertaining, is an outside factor. A juror could easily be swayed by the entertainment of the show and in turn to return a verdict that leans one way or another due to it. Granted, Robert Durst just might be guilty. However, the question begs: Can Robert Durst be tried by an audio admission that he made while filming a TV show that, whether we want to agree or not, was meant in part, for entertainment? Wouldn’t that mean that we should start looking into trying some of our favorite sit-com and reality show stars for the things said and done on TV, in a court of law?
