Following a tragic death, an arrest has finally been made in the death of 3 Doors Down guitarist Matt Roberts. Roberts, just 38 when he died, died from a prescription drug overdose in a hotel just outside of Milwaukee. Roberts served as the lead guitarist of the band from their inception in 1996 until 2012 when he left the band for health reasons.
During his departure, Roberts stated that this was due to performing near 300 dates per year, and the band having exacerbated health and circulation issues that he was currently dealing with. He continued to mention that the band would always hold a special place in his heart, but needed to take this time off for his own health.
Police have now made the arrest of a doctor who was reportedly in connection with Roberts prior to his death. The alleged physician is believed to be from Alabama, a ways away from where his death was confirmed in West Bend, Wisc. Illegal drug distribution has been the primary charge in the case. Throughout his time as physician, Snellgrove (the accused) prescribed Roberts 5 different controlled substances in the names of different individuals, but (police) also have stated that the intended recipient of the drugs were all for Roberts.

Adele might and we stress might be pregnant with number two. At the very least she’s got baby fever. Adele was in Phoenix Monday night and before she wrapped up her North American tour, she decided to share some baby info with her fans. The timing of the new baby is what is in question right now. Although she was sketchy on the timing she’s probably not knocked up just quite yet. She poured champagne for her band and actually sipped on some wine for herself to close out the show. It makes sense she isn’t pregnant yet but trying. Of course Adele’s rep is radio silent but since she’s done touring don’t you think it makes sense?
It’s hard to believe that Coldplay’s “Head Full of Dreams” is almost 1 year old already and if you just can’t get enough of the band, no worries. Chris Martin, yesterday, assured all their fans that new music is on the way. Plans are in the works to release a new EP next year titled “Kaleidoscope”.
Although the release date, track list, etc are an unknown. The EP announcement comes just weeks after Coldplay announced their 2017 North American arena-stadium tour. In case you’re wondering why the name “Kaleidoscope”, the band says it comes from another track on the current 2015 album in addition to complementing the multi-colored, spectrum-covering aesthetic of just about all of Coldplay’s related artwork since. Sounds funky.
I think we all saw this coming. Sources close to the West camp say Kanye was being checked out by one of his personal doctors for severe sleep deprivation when the physician decided his condition was much more than that. LAPD sources say West didn’t want to go and had to be placed in handcuffs where he was quickly wisked away to the UCLA Medical Center and held for a psychiatric evaluation. We all knew something was up after Kanye cancelled his Saint Pablo Tour and starting the verbal attack against Jay Z and Beyonce. I’m sure there will be much more to this story and we’re on it.
The American Music Awards threw down at the Los Angeles Microsoft Theater Sunday night and while it was an awards show, some might have thought it was a political campaign stop. Many a joke was thrown Donald Trumps way but the highlight for us was an emotional speech my Selena Gomez.
“I kept it all together enough to where I would never let you down,” she said.
“But I kept it too much together to where I let myself down. I had to stop, because I had everything and I was absolutely broken inside.
“I don’t want to see your bodies on Instagram,” she said, indicating her heart. “I want to see what’s in here.
“I’m not trying to get validation, nor do I need it any more. All I can say is I’m so grateful that I have the opportunity to be able to share what I love every day with people that I love.
“But if you are broken, you do not have to stay broken. That’s one thing you should know about me – I care about people. And this is for you.”
Lady Gaga actually broke down and cried while Hailee Steinfeld hugged Selena as she left the stage.

Selena Gomez’s return to the spotlight at the 2016 American Music Awards seems to become more of a reality every day. AMAs producer Larry Klein told E! News that Gomez could show up and this claim is backed up by a second source who stated that Selena would be there. What about her Ex Justin Beiber. No worries for her because the Biebs is in Europe for his ‘Purpose’ tour, and will perform via satellite for the show.
Don’t expect Selena to perform because she hasn’t been rehearsing and she just left rehab but it’s still going to be nice to see her and she how she looks. You go girl and we’re behind you 100%
Marc Anthony is separating from his wife of 2 years and it doesn’t come without some controversy. His news comes after a few hours after he and Jennifer Lopez shared some serious PDA.
Marc and Shannon De Lima reportedly have only been serperated for a short time but that didn’t stop Marc from locking lips with JLo. BTW, they got married back in 2014, and have no children together.
During Thursday night’s Latin Grammys J Lo presented Marc with an award and then they lockd lips but J Lo’s manager is denying any kind of a romantic connection.
