What Drove Music Legend Phil Spector To Fatally Shoot An Actress In His Castle-Style Mansion

Phil Spector was a world-renowned music producer who became a self-made millionaire by age 21. Among his many successes, he produced music for The Ronettes, Ike and Tina Turner, and George Harrison and John Lennon’s solo albums. Spector was the man behind hits like “Da Doo Ron Ron.” He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989.

He was equally known for the murder of actress Lana Clarkson on February 3, 2003. She was fatally shot inside Spector’s 35-room mansion, known as the “Pyrenees Castle,” in Alhambra, California. Clarkson, age 40 at her death, had small roles in iconic ’80s films like “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” and “Scarface.” She also made appearances on television shows like “Three’s Company,” “The Jeffersons,” “Who’s the Boss?” and “Knight Rider.” She was working as a hostess at the House of Blues in Los Angeles when she was killed.

Man Kills Mother And Dismembers Body After Being Told To Turn Down His Music

A middle-aged Illinois man killed his mother after he was told that he was playing his Jimi Hendrix music too loudly, prosecutors claimed on Tuesday.

Brian Peck, 55, then allegedly dismembered his mother’s body and discarded it in bags and luggage along Chicago’s lakefront, the Chicago Tribune reported. Though investigators are still testing the recovered remains to determine if they belong to Peck’s mother, Gail Peck, 76, police believe there is already enough evidence to charge Brian Peck, including an identifiable scar on the recovered body.

Peck confessed to the killing and dismemberment, prosecutors said. He initially told investigators that his mother had left to walk her dog, and then the dog returned without her.

After investigators searched Peck’s home, they found blood stains over floors, furniture and recently purchased cleaning supplies. Though Peck initially claimed the blood was the result of an accident, he changed his story when police showed him

Police Fire On Rappers Using Prop Guns In Music Video Shoot

Police opened fire on a rap group who were using fake guns as props during a video shoot in Detroit on Saturday.

According to MLive, two men sitting in a black Jeep with no doors pointed their prop guns at officers during a music video shoot. Police believed the men were robbing the occupants of an Aston Martin, a British sports car. The people in the Aston Martin turned out to be actors.

Detroit Police Sgt. Adam Madera told MLive that the bullets didn’t hit anyone. The two rappers were arrested for illegal possession of “facsimile firearm” and their names have not been identified. Madera said he didn’t know why the guns were pointed at police. He said that anyone using imitation firearms must seek permits from the city and notify police at the precinct in which they plan to film.

The "Cash Me Ousside" Girl Just Made Her Music Video Debut

Danielle Bregoli, otherwise known as the “Cash Me Ousside” girl, is currently enjoying her 15 minutes of fame, and is making every second count.

Besides being recorded in two separate fights since her Dr. Phil appearance went viral – one in which got her banned from an airline – she also started selling merch. But she’s not done yet: she just made her music video debut. 

Bregoli has set her sights on the music world and landed a gig as the star of Kodak Black’s newest music video, “Everything 1K.” Here’s the thing, though: she did it for free. Her manager tells TMZ that she was shooting a video last weekend to promote her new merchandise when the director started playing “Everything 1K” to help her relax. She started to lip sync, and her manager later sent the footage to Kodak Black’s camp, knowing that he didn’t have a video for the

50 Cent’s Son Says His Dad’s Music Sucks – But Did He Diss Him In A New Track?

50 Cent’s son Marquise Jackson says he hasn’t had a relationship with his father since he was 10 years old. He also says his dad’s music sucks. But don’t get the wrong idea—he would never release a diss track about his dad. His song “Different” was released on the 14th anniversary of his father’s “Fiddy” album and contains the line, “Lost my pops but he’s still alive.” None of that means it’s about his dad, okay?

TMZ reports that Jackson is trying to clear people’s wild misconceptions up, saying in a video, “This is not a diss to my father at all. I think they want it to be a diss. People are making it a diss because I guess they want it to be a diss. But it’s not. It’s what goes on in my life.”
