!! OMG, WATCH: John Oliver takes on America’s opioid addiction !!

Did you know that over more than 2.6 million Americans were addicted to opioids in 2015?

“These pills are getting used or falling into the hands of others – from those who are already addicted to just bored teenagers.” says Oliver.

“A nuanced discussion between the medical community about the complexities of brain treatment is clearly important. [The] problem is: that discussion became dominated by the pharmaceutical industry, who started amplifying the message that opioids should not just be used for acute pain — from that of cancer or surgery — but all sorts of pain, like arthritis and backaches.”

“One of Purdue’s doctors in charge of marketing the drug, said that the problem with the perception that people are addicted is that it’s just “relief seeking behavior mistaken as drug addiction.”

“Wow, that is so convenient. That is like Chipotle going, ‘Have you heard of this fascinating new thing called pseudo-diarrhea? It looks a lot like diarrhea but it’s not diarrhea and the cure may actually be more tacos.”

Thoughts? Do you know someone who’s been hooked on the prescriptions?

!! OMG, quote of the day: Nicki Minaj drags Kanye and Sharon Osbourne for their double-standards on race !!


Rap drama! Nicki Minaj is calling out Kanye West for his double-standard disses in rap and how his actions don’t reflect his lyrics:

“It wasn’t funny when Kanye said [in ‘Gold Digger’], ‘When he get on, he’ll leave your ass for a white girl’ – and Kanye happens to be with a white girl now. It wasn’t funny when he said it; it was the fucking truth.”

Nicki also called out Sharon Osbourne for praising Kim K when she posted her infamous nude selfie while she trashed Nicki for her cover art for ‘Anaconda. She said Nicki‘s promo picture was set for “cheap porno cover for a DVD” & Kim’s selfie was “inspiring.” and also posted her own nude selfie to stand in solidarity with Kim as a desperate attempt for 5 mins of fame.

“So it wasn’t trashy and raunchy when a white woman did it but it was when a black woman did it? When Kim Kardashian’s naked picture came out (Sharon) praised it and my fans attacked her for being such a hypocrite. It’s quite pathetic and sad but that is my reality and I’ve gotten accustomed to just shutting it down.”

Thoughts? Do you agree with Nicki?
