K-Pop Superstar Kim Jong-Hyun Dies at 27

Kim Jong-hyun, the lead singer of the K-pop group Shinee who recently began a solo career, has reportedly died at the age of 27 of carbon monoxide poisoning. Per reports from South Korea’s Yonhap agency, Jong-hyun “was found unconscious at his home in Seoul on Monday evening in an an apparent suicide.”


Writes The Guardian:

The Yonhap agency reported that Kim’s sister had received a text message from her brother shortly before his death that read: “Please let me go. Tell me I did well. Final farewell.”

Shinee’s fifth album was released earlier this year, and their 2017 tour was attended by over half a million people.

Diddy, whom we are no longer calling Brother Love, would like to buy the Carolina Panthers, and would like you to spread the word. I know this because in a tweet published late Sunday night, the mogul shared that he would “like to buy the @Panthers,” and that his followers should “spread the word.”

In an accompanying tweet, Diddy explained that he would like to “make history” by becoming the first African American with a “majority” ownership of an NFL team. He detailed (“detailed”) his plan further in an Instagram video, because one platform is not enough:

“I will be the best NFL owner that you can imagine. I will immediately address the Colin Kaepernick situation and put him in the running for next year’s staring quarterback...But also I will have the best halftime show, the best selection of music, and we will win Super Bowl after Super Bowl.”

Charlotte Casiraghi is Grace Kelly’s granddaughter. Her mom is Caroline, the Princess of Monaco (although I guess she is still going by her estranged husband’s title so she’s styling herself Princess of Hannover still?) I did not believe Charlotte was pregnant with Brad Pitt’s baby because all the women in that family have terrible taste in men. Brad Pitt, for all that he’s a hot mess, is still a cut above the type of dudes the Monaco ladies generally go for.*

Remember when Stephanie dated the guy from the circus? Good times...

*The one exception was Charlotte’s dad who seemed like a good guy.
