Manny Pacquiao Wants to Give Filipino Drug Traffickers Death Penalty

Nearly 7-months into his term as incumbent Senator of the Philippines, Manny Pacquiao made headlines on Tuesday, February 7, when he pushed for the passing of a bill that would make a drug trafficking conviction punishable by death in his native country.

“There is now a need to enact a measure that will decisively repress drug trafficking,” Pacquiao said during the Senate justice and human rights committee’s first hearing on the proposed bill. “We cannot ignore the immensity of the drug problem in our country. We cannot maintain the status quo. We need to take a firm stand against drug traffickers,” he said. It is one of three death penalty bills that Senator Pacquiao has drafted, with the other two targeting kidnappers and offenders convicted of rape, respectively.

Pacquiao has been in politics since 2007, through his involvement with the nation’s Kabalikat ng Malayang Pilipino Party, Nacionalista Party, Liberal Party, the United Nationalist Alliance, the PDP-Laban Party and his own People’s Champ Movement. In 2010 he came into office as a Congressman in the district of Sarangani. In June of 2016, he was elected to the Senate and has proven to take a hard line in his approach towards social issues. Drug trafficking is among the unforgivable crimes to Pacquiao, one which he characterizes as an assault on the nation.

“Drug traffickers deserve the death penalty. We need to take a firm stand against drug traffickers,” said Pacquiao. “On a personal level, I can forgive. However, the heinous crime of drug trafficking is committed not just against a person, but against the nation. Drug traffickers deserve the death penalty.”

“Excited to announce I am the new face of @urbanoutfitters @juicycouture,” tweeted Tinashe.

Video: M.I.A. – ‘P.O.W.A.’

M.I.A. is coming back with “P.O.W.A.”

Five months after dropping her fifth and reported final album AIM, the genre-bending superstar debuts the colorful self-directed video for “P.O.W.A.”

Laying on a bed of roses, M.I.A. opens the clip on the back of a truck, riding across gorgeous landscapes. Later, Jabbawockee-like dancers show off synchronized moves, while the British songstress asserts herself.

“I’m no Rihanna, I’m no Madonna,” she sings. “I’m no Mariah or Ariana / I’ve been around in this world causing drama / The real Spice Girl, hot girl power.”

Originally, “P.O.W.A.” was set to be released as a free track for fans, but two days ago, there was a change of plans. “i just got a call from the label saying they are willing to support M.I.A. P.O.W.A. through VEVO and release it on iTunes OFFICIALLY,” she wrote. “This means P.O.W.A. will be delayed by a few days rather than a few months. Otherwise i risk them pulling my video off youtube.”

Video: Trina feat. Tory Lanez – ‘Damn’

Trina and Tory Lanez take their booty anthem to the strip club in the video for “Damn.”

With a bevy of beauties twerking and flipping acrobatic moves onstage, Tory celebrates a “pretty ass” that keeps people staring while strolling through the strip club’s locker room.

In ripped jeans, Trina shows off her body, while boasting about her assets. Later, Da Baddest Bitch emerges in fur, rapping in front of a mirror and in front of strippers. “Ass on what the fuck I got up in them jeans, boy,” she raps. “Goddamn, how the fuck it’s bustin’ out the seams, boy?”

According to Trina, it was important to film the visual with “realistic” women. “I wanted the visuals to be fun, diverse, and realistic with the women that was portrayed in it,” she told Complex. “Strip clubs, the atmosphere, the music — this is all apart of our culture daily! Seeing women of all shapes and curves who are confident in their own skin…with their own flaws, yet still can turn heads.”

Describing her work with Lanez, she added: “The chemistry amongst Tory and I was positive as we work great together when we collab.”

In April, Trina is set to drop her first album since 2010’s Amazin’ featuring Lil Wayne, K. Michelle, Plies, 2 Chainz, and more.

Watch Anderson .Paak Perform ‘Come Down’ in Church with a Gospel Choir

Yes Lawd! Just days before the Grammys, Anderson .Paak takes fans to church as part of The Recording Academy’s “Believe in Music” campaign.

The Los Angeles crooner puts a gospel spin on his Malibu single “Come Down” with some help from Gospel Music Director and Anderson’s family friend, J’rese Mitchell.

As the congregation stands up and claps along, .Paak is seen drumming behind the singers, a callback to his days as a drummer in a gospel choir.

The clip is a family affair, featuring .Paak’s sister Camille and his six-year-old son Soul, who recently danced his heart out on “Ellen.”

Of course, this is just a warm-up for Anderson, who is set to hit the Grammy stage with A Tribe Called Quest on Sunday (Feb. 12). He’s also up for two Grammys, including Best New Artist and Best Urban Contemporary Album.

Today is also Anderson’s birthday. He celebrated by quoting Notorious B.I.G. and posing in front of a brand new BMW i8. “Birth days was the worst days,” he wrote, while showing off his new ride.
