JOURNALIST ALLEGES THAT PRINCE 'GOBBLED' HIS PERCOCET PILLS LIKE 'M&MS': Journalist Neal Karlen, who was friends with Prince for over 30 years, revealed in his memoir This Thing Called Life, Karlen recalled a time when Prince visited his home after a rollerblading accident. He said, “I didn’t even have time to offer him a glass of water before he spied the white Walgreen’s bottle of pills in my living room.” He continued, “Prince gobbled a third of the bottle like they were M&Ms, and my heart sank. It was f***ing true. I’d hear rumors for years that he’d been off and on heavy painkillers ever since the ‘Purple Rain’ tour a dozen years before.” In April 2016, Prince died of an accidental fentanyl overdose at his Paisley Park home.
R&B GROUP ALLURE SPEAKS OUT ABOUT NOT BEING INCLUDED IN MARIAH CAREY'S MEMOIR: R&B group Allure has opened up about being left out of Mariah Carey's memoir The Meaning of Mariah Carey. The group wrote on Instagram, “For years we’ve always taken the high road. When it came to our career. Dealt with people having their own opinions about what went down with us and Mariah. Hearing rumors that one of us assaulted her. People saying we were bitter." They continued, "At the end of the day we have and will always feel strongly about principle. You had a label and we were your first act…We’ve always stayed Quiet and been nice about everything although we didn’t receive the same back. One thing that’s sickening is being treated as if we never existed. How does anyone blatantly lie and totally disregard people who were a huge part of your life and your career..between us and 7 Mile… that’s all anyone ever talked about." The group added, "We would have Been ok with you never mentioning the label at all….we were close to you …like sisters…but to actually mention the label and completely disregard us and our accolades and what we brought to the table as your 'FIRST ARTISTS' is a slap in the face…”
