50 Cent Fan Ordered By Judge To Listen To Opera


Recommended Posts

A judge in MIAMI has ordered a man to listen to over two hours of opera for playing 50 CENT's music too loudly in his car.

Miami Beach recently introduced new strict noise abatement laws – if the police can hear your stereo from 100 feet away, they can charge you. Giant electronic billboards on Miami’s Ocean Drive now warn drivers: "No Loud Music!"

Last week Michael Carreras was found guilty of playing 50 Cent's ‘In Da Club’ too loudly at 5am.

Judge Jeffrey Swartz gave the 32-year-old club promoter the choice of paying a $500 fine or listening to Verdi’s ‘La Traviata’ in the judge’s chambers.

"You impose your music on me, and I'm going to impose my music on you," Swartz told Carreras.

As Carreras listened to the two-and-a-half hour opera, the judge told him: "It's like everything else. It's about love, betrayal and death."

Carreras found the punishment "relaxing", reports local newspaper the St Petersburg Times.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
