Metro Detroit Police Looking For Drivers On Their Phones
If you’re still not following the distracted driving law, they’re out on these streets this week to try and bust ya. They’re looking for using your cell phone behind the wheel. You can’t even use it at a red light. You can use one-touch calling. Like, if someone was calling you at a red light, you could answer it. But you can’t look at social media, none of that stuff. The first offense is $100 fine or 16 hours of community service or both. Second offense is $250 for a fine or 24 hours of community service or both. Yesterday, police were were focused on M-59. Today is Big Beaver Road and Metro Parkway. Tomorrow they’re focusing on I-75 and Macomb and Oakland County. So, if you travel those routes, make sure that you’re obeying the law. There’s also reports they’re using unmarked police vehicles. Be warned because they’re looking for you.
And listen, it’s dangerous enough out there without you being distracted by your phone behind the wheel. Yesterday I was sitting in construction traffic, dead-stop traffic. Obviously, someone was not paying attention and there was a seven car pile-up behind me. I mean, the truck behind me was the last one to get hit. So, luckily he didn’t smash into me. And then there were people running all over the freeway trying to check on people. It was a very, very scary situation. So listen, the law is there for a reason. Pay attention. There’s nothing more important than that.
Jay-Z Has The Last Word on Dinner With Him or $500k Debate
The big question that’s been going around social media is ‘Would you take dinner with Jay-Z or $500,000?’ Well, Jay-Z finally settled the debate. When asked about the hot topic, Jay said, “I’ve got to take the money. What I’m going to say? I mean, everything I’m going to say, you got all that in the music for $10.99. That’s a bad deal. I wouldn’t tell you to cut a bad deal. Like, I don’t know. Take the $500,000, go buy some albums and listen to the albums. It’s all there. If you piece it together and really listen to the music for the words, it’s all there. Everything that I said was going to happen, happened. Everything that I said I wanted to do, I’ve done. And there’s the blueprint. The blueprint literally to me and my life and my journey is there already.” What are you taking? I’m definitely taking the money.

Celebrity Wax Statues Get Dogged
I don’t know if you saw this, but what is even going on with these wax figures they’ve been putting out lately? First of all, I saw Travis Barker’s yesterday from Blink 182 and I could not even tell them apart. It was crazy. I mean, it looks exactly like him. But wax statues of The Rock and Lil Wayne do not. I don’t think The Rock’s is too off when it comes to his features, but his skin tone definitely is not correct. And then Lil Wayne? I don’t know. The thing looks, like, three-foot-tall and 52 pounds wet. And the face is off. I think it’s because he doesn’t have sunglasses on like he normally wears. I think if they actually would have put the sunglasses on it wouldn’t look as weird. It’s a mess. Take a look at it here… https://x.com/Rap/status/1716500309722149186?s=20
