Red Hot Chili Peppers Narrowly Avert Starring In A “Locked Up Abroad” Episode Thanks To Metallica.

We were called into customs officials office at an airport in Belarus and they asked us to sign a bunch of Metallica cd's and photos. We tried to explain to them that we weren't Metallica but they insisted that we sign anyway. They had the power. Well I did play fight fire with with with Metallica once. I love Metallica anyways but I'm no Robert Trujillo.

As someone who gets pulled out of line by TSA on a regular basis, I can’t imagine the anxiety of getting pulled aside by customs in BELARUS. Now I don’t know a lot about Belarus but my gut says you don’t f*ck with Eastern European officers of any sort. Mall Cops, crossing guards, Belarus babies dressed in cop costumes, etc. So Red Hot Chili Peppers roll thru customs and the officers start insisting they’re Metallica…Flea said they tried to tell them they were not Metallica but Belarus customs wouldn’t take no for an answer. The Chilis soon realized that they should just probably go ahead and sign some swag as Metallica…

Because when Eastern European Custom Officers think you are Metallica, YOU SAY YOU ARE METALLICA.

Snoop Dogg Just Raised The Bar For Retirement Parties.

Super Laker Fanboy/Rapper Snoop Dogg hooked up a custom Laker-themed convertible for Kobe Bryant’s 20yr retirement. Which is incredible. Who would do that for you? However, doesn’t that seem a little over the top? Snoop did make sure his picture was the largest on the hood of that car and as far as I know, Snoop never played for The Lakers.

Ugh what if Snoop is to Kobe what Mel is to Jemaine and Bret?

We may never know but that car certainly beats the retirement party norm of a spray centerpiece/cupcake in the breakroom.

Slightly Easier To Forgive An Embarrassing Dad When He Has This Kind Of Pull.

President Obama was able to parlay performances by Kendrick Lamar and Janelle Monae into birthday entertainment for his daughter Malia who happens to be born on July 4th. Not too shabby for an 18th birthday considering the highlight of mine involved warm beer and a stolen street cone.

He also took time to remind everyone about those who sacrifice to protect our freedom. Speaking of which, please take a moment to listen to Frontline Radio, a station featuring songs and stories dedicated to our servicemen/women. It’s pretty special and far easier on the ears than Obama’s singing voice. Aww JK Mr. Prez!

Don’t forget to check out Kendrick’s performance too.
