  1. Today is the 29th birthday of Young Money boss and superstar performer Lil Wayne – capping one of the most successful years of his long and still growing rap music career. In nearly 11 months since his release from prison, the hardworking New Orleans MC has been recording and rocking tours at a breakneck speed all while his Young Money label continued to flourish with the success of breakout star Nicki Minaj and the release of his own Tha Carter IV album. The proud father of four will no doubt have a bash befitting of a star of his caliber and already on Twitter, members of Weezy’s YMCMB crew showered their captain with loving accolades in honor of his day of birth. Wayne, notorious for continually honing his craft in the booth, even tweeted that he intends to keep working on his birthday. To celebrate Weezy's born day, we take a look back at a special clip from last year when the superstar MC spent his 28th birthday locked down in jail at Rikers Island. But In the words of the late great Frank White, 'things done changed." Weezy's home! “Just kame out the booth and noticed it was my birthday…yeeeeeeeaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!now bak to work,” tweeted Wayne in the wee hours of the morning. One of Wayne’s YM artists Drake tweeted, “Happy Bornday to di general…Weezy da boss.” Cash Money boss Bryan “Birdman” Williams lovingly added, “Hapi.BDay 2my son BMjR.realest n--.” Lil Wayne’s big day also became a top trending topic on the social media network in the United States with droves of fans tweeting exuberantly and wishing Weezy a good one. Lil Wayne began his career at the tender age of 11, working alongside fellow youngster rapper B.G. In 1997, at the age of 15, Wayne joined up with B.G., Juvenile and Turk to form the Hot Boys – finding success in 1999 with their major label Cash Money Records debut. Wayne released his debut solo album The Block Is Hot the same year as the Hot Boys release. Nine albums later, Wayne sits atop as one of rap music’s most recognized and beloved acts and has finagled his fame in discovering and signing talent such as the aforementioned Drake and Nicki Minaj to his Young Money label. The Hollygrove representative also continues to tour heavily as his “I Am Still Music” tour has thrilled fans stateside for months. Wayne also turned heads with his MTV “Unplugged”performance and his showstopper performance in closing out this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. Happy Birthday, Lil Wayne!

  2. AP - Jurors at the trial of the doctor accused of killing Michael Jackson on Tuesday heard the pop star's slurred words while he was on a powerful anesthetic, caught on tape weeks before his death. They also saw a photo of his pale body lying on a gurney after he died from an overdose of a powerful anesthetic.

  3. A while back [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/06/21/human-centipede-donnie-wahlberg/"]Donnie Wahlberg told me he watched the first "Human Centipede"[/url] and "faced" his own fears about a psychopath who mutilates humans and makes them into, you guessed it, human centipedes. Witness his words of encouragement for yourself...

I did this for all of you. Behold my real time reactions past the jump! [b]:11:[/b] This doesn't look like it's gonna end well. Don't let that pudgy dude sign that lease, man. Please. Don't. Let. Him. [b]:18:[/b] Is this over yet? I already feel queasy. Also: never rent films made by that psychopath scientist dude. Why? BECAUSE HE LIKES TO MAKE HUMAN CENTIPEDES. [b]:35: [/b]His mother is worried about him? So are we! [b]:48:[/b] TWELVE PERSON CENTIPEDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GROSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Side note: What does that mean about your son, mom? It means your son's a crazy, crazy human… who loves centipedes, made of humans. [b]1:12:[/b] Think that dude's in a passing phase, huh? Oh, we've all been in that passing phase WHERE HUMANS ARE MADE INTO A GIANT CENTIPEDE!!!!!!!!!! Oh, that's right. We haven't. [b]1:32:[/b] Is this a perverted film, mom? WHY YES IT IS!!!!!!! And, mom, not the sexy kind. Unless you think combining humans into a centipede is sexy, which, by the way, I don’t. [b]1:50:[/b] That's a lot of duct tape and weapons. Someone call Benson and Stabler. STAT. I think we're gonna need a 'bus. Side note: thanks Josh Wigler for making me watch this. NOT! Now that I've done this… you should too. Face your own fears and [url="http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/1810179244/video/26738863"]watch the trailer[/url]. "The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence)" opens October 7.

SWA had released a statement yesterday, claiming the flight attendant only booted the girls after passengers complained about "excessive" PDA. But Hailey claims it's all BS. Hailey and the other female kisser -- who also play in a band together -- released a joint statement saying, "In no way were our actions on Southwest Airlines excessive, inappropriate or vulgar." They add, "We want to make it clear we were not making out or creating any kind of spectacle of ourselves, it was one, modest kiss." However, the two admit, "We take full responsibility for getting verbally upset with the flight attendant after being told it was a 'family airline.'” The statement continues ... "We find it very disturbing that the same airline who lauds itself as being LGBT friendly has twisted an upsetting incident that happened into our behavior being 'too excessive.'" Both women insist they will be filing a formal complaint with the airline.

  7. [img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/prometheus.jpg[/img] [i]by Brian Phares[/i] Big news for sci-fi fans: Ridley Scott has finally taken the wraps off his far-too-secretive-for-my-tastes science fiction opus, "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/433741/moviemain.jhtml"]Prometheus[/url]." And what an opus it is! For far too long we at MTV News, -- not to mention the entire world at large -- have been wondering, just what is "Prometheus" all about, [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/03/07/prometheus-noomi-rapace-interview/"]"Alien" DNA aside[/url]? Is it a direct "Alien" prequel? Will it tell us who the masters of the massive downed spacecraft the crew of the Nostromo find in the original “Alien” were? Well, it looks like the answers to both questions remain unanswered, but "Prometheus" could still very well blow our minds with the origins of mankind, and the fate of the universe. Check out [url="http://www.facebook.com/Prometheus?sk=info"]the official synopsis[/url] below if you don’t believe me. [indent]Ridley Scott, director of “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race. [/indent]Wow, just wow. I guess [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/09/22/prometheus-patrick-wilson/"]Patrick Wilson[/url] wasn’t lying when he told us “Prometheus” would blow our minds. Consider mine blown. But I am curious, what is there to learn about the origins of mankind we don’t already know? What key piece of information does the team find that flies in the face of everything we know about evolution? And most importantly, how does this lead them to the far corners of the universe? Lastly of course, what alien race will the crew inevitably encounter to battle for the survival of humanity? June 2012 cannot come soon enough, and I am currently hard at work on a time machine that can take me there. If I am successful, you’ll be the first to hear my review.

[img]http://ll-media.tmz.com/2011/09/27/0927-mj-dead-2.jpg[/img] * [b]Michael Jackson[/b] trusted his life to the medical skills of Dr. Murray and it was "misplaced trust" * The cause of death was an overdose of Propofol, administered by Dr. Murray * We will prove Conrad Murray repeatedly acted with gross negligence and incompetence * Walgren explained that Murray would obtain $150,000 a month, not the $5 million Murray demanded for the duration of the "This is It" tour. * Murray made arrangements with a pharmacy to purchase very large quantities of Propofol on a regular basis * Murray lied to the pharmacist by saying he had a clinic in Santa Monica when he did not * On May 10, 2009, Murray made a voice recording on his iPhone ... the recording documents MJ highly under the influence of "unknown agents" with Murray sitting there. It shows Murray knew Michael's state and what he was doing to the singer * In the weeks before MJ died, he was cold, shivering, rambling but Murray kept giving him Propofol, and Kenny Ortega will testify MJ was clearly not well * A meeting was held at Michael's house on May 20, 2009, MJ died, with Kenny Ortega, Murray, MJ and others. Murray scolded Ortega for expressing concerns about his health, saying he was the doctor, adding, "Michael is physically and emotionally fine. I am the doctor." * On the day MJ died, at 1 AM, MJ came home from rehearsal and Murray spent the night at the house -- as he did every night for the prior 2 1/2 months -- for the purpose of putting him to sleep with Propofol. [url="http://photos.tmz.com/galleries/conrad_murray_trial_michael_jackson_photo_gallery_pictures"][img]http://ll-media.tmz.com/2011/09/27/0927-trial-photos-launch.jpg[/img][/url] * Walgren acknowledged what TMZ has been reporting almost from the beginning ... that Michael died in his bed -- that he was clinically dead when paramedics arrived. * Murray was texting and making phone calls while he sat by MJ. He made 8 phone calls, the last at 11:51 to a girlfriend, and that's when Murray realized there was an emergency. * Murray calls bodyguard Alberto Alvarez and says Michael Jackson had a "bad reaction." * Murray instructs Alvarez to essentially hide the evidence in a blue bag ... putting, among other things, the Propofol bottle that was hanging on the IV stand -- Walgren is implying that's the bottle that had the fatal dose * 911 was called at 12:20. And, Walgren says, when paramedics arrived, MJ was dead * Murray never told the EMTs he gave MJ Propofol, even though they asked what drugs Murray had administered * Paramedics pronounced MJ dead, but Murray insisted he be transported to UCLA * UCLA doctors asked Murray what drugs had he given MJ, but Murray never mentioned Propofol * Two days after MJ's death, Murray met with LAPD detectives, and disclosed he was giving MJ nightly doses of Propofol everyday for more than 2 months to put him to sleep. This is the first time Murray fessed up. * MJ told Murray at around 5 AM that he needed to sleep and they agreed Propofol was the answer. Murray said he gave MJ 25 milligrams of Propofol, but that would only put him to sleep for minutes. Prosecutors say much more Propofol was administered. * Murray explained to cops he went to the bathroom to urinate, came back 2 minutes later to discover MJ wasn't breathing. Prosecutors says that is called "ABANDONMENT," leaving a patient unattended is medical abandonment. * The prosecutor says Murray was on the phone for 45 minutes after giving MJ Propofol * Conrad Murray acted with gross negligence and was not acting in MJ's best interests ... he was working for $150,000 a month.

  19. [img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/terranova.jpg[/img] Monday night's two-hour debut of [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/tag/terra-nova"]"Terra Nova"[/url] sits unwatched in my DVR, a victim of a new puppy who needs far too much attention and then my wife's insistence that if we were going to watch any TV it'd have nothing to do with dinosaurs and everything to do with finally catching up on Leslie Knope's political ambitions in Pawnee. The day after, the web is abuzz over "Terra Nova," though not necessarily for reasons that make me think my wife and my dog kept me from being an early adopter of a show I'll be itching to check out each week. I plan to watch tonight, but I'll approach the DVR with caution. Anyone under the impression that Fox has served up a [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/tag/lost"]"Lost"[/url]-like time-travel mystery should now be fully aware the show is trying to attract not just geeks but the four-quadrant demographics so important in Hollywood (and mega-budget TV series). "A rollicking, old-fashioned action-adventure sci-fantasy family saga, 'Terra Nova' strove mightily to offer something for everyone," wrote Ken Tucker of [i][url="http://watching-tv.ew.com/2011/09/26/terra-nova-stephen-lang/"]Entertainment Weekly[/url][/i]. "You could feel the strain 'Terra Nova' was under to make this show appeal to as many demos as possible." The show, it seems, is as much "Swiss Family Robinson" as it is "Stargate": a family in the year 2149 flees their dying earth and travels 80 million years back in time to our world in the time of the dinosaurs. There are action set-pieces, but also much time spent on Jim (Jason O’Mara) and his wife Elisabeth's (Shelley Conn) strained marriage and the difficulties of taking their three kids on a road trip of epic proportions. For me, the key for "Terra Nova" will be how it handles its central mythology. "[I]n a nice 'Mad Max'-ish twist, there are some renegade forces out there as well, trying to take down Terra Nova," explains Tim Goodman of [url="http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/review/terra-nova-tv-review-238680"][i]The Hollywood Reporter[/i][/url]. "They are the Sixers — so called because they came in the 6th Pilgrimage. This is another welcome element to Terra Nova. Who sent the Sixers from the future? Why do they want to kill Taylor [Stephen Lang] and stop Terra Nova?" Any talk of a mythological component in a TV show leaves me a little intrigued and a lot wary (and weary): for every "Lost" there are a half-dozen time sucks like "Jericho" (dribbling out its reveals too slowly), "4400" (uncorking its big reveal and then finding it had nothing left to say) and "The Event" (just, honestly, a freaking mess from top to bottom). The recapper over at [url="http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2011/09/terra_nova_recap.html"]Vulture [/url]neatly summarizes all these thoughts as they relate to Fox's new show. "[The] pilot was at its most tantalizing when it teased us with details of the Sixers," Chadwick Matlin wrote. "The man versus dino-nature stuff is fine, but if the show is going to grab us, it'll be because we don't know whose side to take. None of the principals in 'Terra Nova' are compelling enough to earn our allegiance by default. By the end of the episode, I was already rooting for a Sixers coup, if only so life in Terra Nova would get a little more interesting. If there’s anything I trust the writers to flesh out, it's the Sixers-Nova conflict: nothing makes better TV than two warring tribes. Just ask 'Lost.'"

Pablo -- famous for hits like "Freak-A-Leek" and "Raise Up" -- had pleaded guilty to possessing a stolen firearm in a North Carolina courtroom. As TMZ previously reported, officials found the loaded weapon in Pablo's bag when it went through an X-ray machine at the security checkpoint. An investigation revealed the gun was stolen in a home burglary in Gardena, CA back in 2005. No word on when Pablo is set to begin his sentence.
