Rapper Chinx Dead At 31

The week started off in tragedy with the death of up and coming rapper, Chinx.

US rapper, Lionel ‘Chinx’ Pickens, a 31-year-old French Montana affiliate, was killed in the early hours on May 17th in a drive-by shooting. A second victim – Coke Boys affiliate, Yemen Cheese (real name Antar Alziadi) – was shot in the back and is in critical condition in hospital.

Police responded to a 911 call at around 4am (9am GMT), where they found two victims in a car at Queens Boulevard and 84th Drive. Pickens was transported to Jamaica Medical Centre with gunshot wounds to his torso and was later pronounced dead.

Khloe and Rob Kardashian, Jay -Z, French Montana, Diddy and Snoop Dogg are just some of the celebrities who have paid tribute to Chinx on social media. It has been rumoured that Malika Haqq, best friend of Khloe Kardashian, was dating Chinx around the time of his death. But it has since transpired that Chinx was married with three children.

Janelli Caceres (wife of Chinx) wrote in a Facebook post Tuesday “I DO NOT CARE ABOUT MALIKA, ERICA MENA OR ANYYYY OTHER CHICK THAT HAD ANY INVOLVEMENT WITH MY HUSBAND!!! I am mourning the loss of my husband, trying to find his killer, preparing my kids for the worst and planning a fckn funeral. I’m not worried bout the stupid s**t”.

Billboard Music Awards 2015

The Billboard Music Awards was held Sunday night (May 17) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas (NV) and the big event was televised on ABC, hosted by Ludacris and Chrissy Teigen.

The night’s biggest nominee, Taylor Swift, won eight of the 14 awards she was nominated for. Swift dazzled in a White Balmain jumpsuit with revealing diamond cutouts and she also premiered her new music video for “Bad Blood”, which featured Selena Gomez, Ellen Pompeo and Ellie Goulding, to name a few.

Swift also debuted her budding romance with DJ Calvin Harris and the couple looked very much loved up throughout the ceremony.

Turning to the fashion on the night, it sure did not disappoint. Kendall Jenner wore a stunning embellished blazer to announce the Balmain H&M collaboration, Jennifer Lopez looked flawless wearing a flowing sheer gown (which showed off her toned tummy) and Kylie Jenner turned heads in a black and gold mini.

There was also major drama on the night, as Kylie and Kendall were booed when introducing brother-in-law Kanye West’s performance. The performance itself was heavily censored and Kanye was later forced to offer an apology for what he referred to as ‘over censoring’.

Lastly, ending with One Direction news, Harry Styles set tongues wagging as upon winning an award with his bandmates, he casually grabbed Niall Horan’s crotch!

As always another big week in the world of pop culture! See you next Friday Drama Divas and Dudes!
