Jay Z's Dog Fur Coats
TMZ reports: A jacket from Jigga's clothing line, Rocawear, allegedly has dog fur in its collar, even though it's advertised as having fake fur. According to an investigation by The Humane Society of the United States, the Hunter jacket on Rocawear.com contains real fur from a raccoon dog, a dog indigenous to Asia that The Humane Society claims are skinned alive for the coats, hence the uproar. 

As of today, the $265 coat was still a "featured" item on the Rocawear website. Late last year, a similar investigation found that raccoon dog fur was being used in a coat in rap mogul P. Diddy's "Sean John" collection; that item was removed from stores within a few days.

Reps for Jay-Z and Rocawear could not immediately be reached for comment. The Humane Society said that it informed the company of the issue a week ago, but that they've taken no action. [so in other words, avoid "fur coats" from all rappers.. you shouldn't be buying them anyway but here is another reason to avoid them.] - Click Here for the Full Story

Britney Pukes on Boyfriend
hecklerspray reports: [couldn't resist this one…] The other day we were idly compiling a list of all the various ways that Britney Spears had alienated whatever fans she had left, and we realised that - hey - Britney Spears hadn't barfed copious amounts of runny vomit all over a boy yet.

Well, there is a God and he appears to be listening. According to reports, Britney Spears has been continuing to get over her messy split from Kevin Federline by treating her new boyfriend Isaac Cohen to the sort of lifestyle that only the fallen princess of pop can give a man; a weekend in a ridiculously overpriced hotel and a very special gift - the gift of spewing unrelenting torrents of warm gushing puke all over his clothes like an out-of-control fire hose attached to a very ill man's guts.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
