Nas celebrated his birthday during a private dinner at The Pool Lounge in New York. Minaj, 34, posted a picture of her and Nas on her Instagram account. She has her arm around Nas while they stand next to Alicia Keys and her husband, Swizz Beatz, People reported.

In a video from the event, a man Minaj identified as “Nasir” was spotted creeping up behind Minaj and kissing her on the cheek. Many fans have speculated the man was indeed Nas, whose given name is Nasir Bin Olu Dara Jones.

The Shade Room also posted a video of Minaj and Nas together that night. In the video, Nas had his arm wrapped around Minaj’s shoulder as Minaj had her hand placed on his chest while the rapper was presented with his birthday cake.

Rumors of the pair dating began to circulate when Manaj posted a picture of them cuddling to her Instagram account.

Then in May, Minaj told television host Ellen DeGeneres that she had plenty of respect for the rapper.

“He is the king of Queens, and I like to think I’m the queen of Queens,” Minaj said. “He’s a rap legend. Let’s just say that I have a lot of respect for him, and you know, he’s kind of cute, too.”

But Minaj stressed that the relationship with Nas was not intimate, People reported.

“I’m just chillin’ right now. I’m celibate. I wanted to go a year without dating any men. I hate men,” Minaj told DeGeneres. “I might make an exception to the rule for him, because he’s so dope.”

Limbaugh: ‘Wimpism’ has taken over Washington establishment

Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh criticized what he called “wimpism” on the part of the Washington, D.C. establishment for asking President Donald Trump to tone down his rhetoric on North Korea.

Speaking on his radio show Thursday, Limbaugh said there is no reason to be afraid of North Korea, describing Kim Jong Un’s regime as a “zit on the butt of a pig,” Fox News reported.

Limbaugh slammed congressmen from both parties who have warned that Trump’s tough talk could inflame tensions with North Korea and perhaps trigger a war.

“What does this mean?” Limbaugh said. "It means that 'wimpism' has taken over the Washington establishment, that 'wussism' and 'wimpism' and 'pajama boyism' has taken over."

Limbaugh said North Korea may have nuclear weapons, but they "can’t hit the side of a barn" with them, Fox News reported.

"What are we supposed to do, just sit here and wait until the real one is airborne and hope that being gentle and compassionate and unprovocative will stop this lunatic from doing what he’s doing? Is that what we’re to believe here?" Limbaugh asked.

Friday morning, Trump tweeted that the United States military was “locked and loaded” if North Korea decided to take military action.

 

Ashley’s experience with Westgate River Ranch:

“Westgate River Ranch is a hidden gem away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s one of my favorite places because of the location away from everything. I’ve done both family weekends and girls weekend at the ranch, so you can really make it whatever you want. The activities are so much fun – from skeet shooting (I did it for the first time ever at WGRR and loved it) to the horseback rides and swamp buggies. The staff is so helpful in teaching you if it’s your first time on a horse, skeet shooting, etc. It can be a real adventure or laid back experience depending on your taste. Every time I leave, I’m ready to plan my next trip back.”

New study says country music mentions drugs more than any other genre

According to a recent study by Addictions.com, country music mentions drugs more than any other musical genre, with the most-referenced drug being marijuana.

>> Read more trending news 

Those results may come as a shock to some listeners who assumed that rap or hip-hop music might reference drugs more, but 1.6 percent of all country music surveyed by Addictions.com’s Song Meanings Application Programming Interface (API) references drugs on average, compared to less than 1.3 percent on average in hip-hop music.

Jazz music came in second place, although the study does not disclose the average percentage.

But what constitutes a drug reference? And what counts as “country” music for Addictions.com? For starters, alcoholic beverages are not classified as drugs in the study (or else, country music would win this by a landslide). According to the methodology of the study, Addictions.com “scraped song lyrics from Song Meanings API and analyzed drug mentions, what drugs were involved, and how it changed over time, and grouped drug slang words together in their respected drug categories.”

After going over the data from songs from country, rock, jazz, rap/hip-hop, pop, folk and electronic genres from 1933 until now, the drug references were grouped into seven categories: 

Pills (which includes all Opiates except Heroin, Benzodiazepines, Sleep medication, and ADHD medication), Heroin, Marijuana, LSD, Cocaine (which includes both crack cocaine and cocaine), Ecstasy (This includes MDMA and molly), and Meth.

After all that, country music came out on top, with 1.6 percent of all songs studied since 1933 referencing some sort of drug. According to the study, the top three drugs referenced in country music were marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamine. 

It should be noted that most country songs decry drug consumption (with the exception of alcohol, and, very recently, marijuana). No country artists were mentioned in the study, but artists like Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Old Crow Medicine Show, Jamey Johnson, John Prine and many others have referenced marijuana, pills, cocaine or heroin in their songs as hazardous and not recreational.

However, once the study results are broken down into the musicians that reference drugs the most, country artists don’t even crack the Top 10. That honor goes to all hip-hop artists, most notably Kottonmouth Kings, Eminem, The Game, Lil’ Wayne and Jay-Z.

If you want to see just how many country music songs reference drugs, take a listen to the playlist below (though we would never condone the use of recreational drugs).

Glenn Jacobs, WWE star 'Kane,' officially announces his bid for mayor

When Glenn Jacobs' treasurer filed the necessary paperwork for a potential political campaign last month, it became national news that the World Wrestling Entertainment star known as “Kane” might run for mayor of Knox County, Tennessee.

On Tuesday, Jacobs made it official. Speaking to a crowd at Sweet P’s Barbecue and Soul House, the pro wrestler announced his intention to seek the Republican nomination for mayor.

“As Knox County mayor I promise to keep taxes low and make Knox County a place everyone can be proud of,” Jacobs promised. “I see my role as that of a facilitator among the different communities in our area. And also I think that Mayor (Tim) Burchett has done a very good job with transparency in government and I would continue along those lines.”

The 2018 election for Knox County mayor will be for an open seat to replace Burchett.

Jacobs focused on the themes of jobs, education and smaller government, repeating a version of Ronald Reagan’s conservative mantra that “government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”

Glenn Jacobs announcing his bid for mayor

The WWE star told Rare on Tuesday that his belief in free markets and individual liberty were part of what interested him in becoming involved in politics, and he saw his Republican brand as being similar to that of libertarians like Sen. Rand Paul, Reps. Justin Amash and Thomas Massie, and also his own congressman, Rep. Jimmy Duncan.

Jacobs has lived in Knox County for over two decades, roughly the same amount of time his “Kane” character has endured as one of the top stars in the pro wrestling industry.

“For the past 22 years I’ve had the pleasure of living here in East Tennessee,” Jacobs said Tuesday. “Because my career with the WWE has taken me all around the world on a weekly basis, me family and I could live pretty much anywhere in the U.S.”

“We live here because we want to,” Jacobs said to applause. “We live here because we love it here.”

Jacobs and his wife Crystal own an insurance agency in the Knoxville area.

At least two other challengers for mayor are expected to run, including County Commissioner Bob Thomas, who has already announced, and Knox County Sheriff Jimmy Jones.

Though Jacobs wrestled under other monikers prior for a number of years, his “Kane” character was introduced to WWE fans in 1997.

Disclosure: Glenn Jacobs is a Rare contributor.

Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt after their two-year wedding anniversary. The couple has been together for 12 years and has six children.The L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services is investigating Pitt, 52, after the alleged incident was anonymously reported to them. The case also has been referred to the FBI under special aircraft jurisdiction due to the incident being mid-flight.

"There was a parent-child argument which was not handled in the right way and escalated more than it should have," the source told the magazine.

The source said Pitt did not hurt his son. “He is emphatic that it did not reach the level of physical abuse, that no one was physically harmed. He did not hit his child in the face in any way. ... He put his hands on him, yes, because the confrontation was spiraling out of control."

Franklin plans to come out with a food line that will likely include desserts.

The Queen of Soul talked about her food products with Detroit Local 4. She said she also plans to offer chili, her special gumbo and baked chicken and dressing in a loaf pan. The singer said she is in talks with a company based in Phoenix to create the products.

LaBelle released a line of desserts last fall that are now sold in Walmart stores. Her sweet potato pies flew off shelves during the holidays. She got a helping hand from unofficial pitchman James Wright Chanel, who sang his way to becoming a viral sensation and Thanksgiving dinner at LaBelle’s home.

Franklin said she hasn’t had a chance to try LaBelle’s pie, but advised, "Ms. Patti’s gonna have to move that pie to the side."

We’re not rushing to judgment until we taste what Franklin has to offer.

Then we’ll find out who gets the "R-E-S-P-E-C-T."
