SHYNE AND PUFFY QUASH THE BEEF
It took 13 years, but SHYNE and PUFF DADDY have made up, or at least are working on it. In 1999, Shyne was at Club New York with Puff and J-LO when shots were fired, and both Puffy and Shyne were arrested. Shyne did a nine-year prison term, and Puffy was acquitted. Puffy has reached out to him several times over the years . . . but Shyne always rebuffed his attempts. (That’s not surprising, since Shyne basically took the fall for Puffy.) But now, Shyne says they’ve reconnected over the phone, and are planning on meeting up in Paris sometime soon. Shyne says, quote, “[It’s] been a long time coming . . . I felt how I felt, I said what I said. In retrospect, when you looked at the way [Puff] handled it, he held it down, he wore it. He ain’t had nothing to say . . . always had good things to say. “It was always, ‘Yo, whatever Shyne need, we got him’. Shyne wouldn’t give any specifics about what was said on the phone . . . but he did say this: Quote, “The conversation was a confirmation of what I felt . . . when a man says, ‘Listen, as a man, I make mistakes and I own that.’ What could you do?

BRUNO MARS GETS OFF
BRUNO MARS just finished a year of probation, and now his cocaine possession charge has been dropped. Bruno was ordered to complete 200 hours of community service over the past year, and he EXCEEDED that . . . serving more than 230 hours. He also had to pay a $2,000 fine, and undergo drug counseling. Bruno was arrested in Las Vegas in September of 2010, after a bathroom attendant saw him with cocaine and ratted him out. He pleaded guilty, but the judge let him off without a conviction as long as he fulfilled his probation requirements.
UNCLE LUKE & TEBOW???
LUTHER CAMPBELL from 2 LIVE CREW is a big TIM TEBOW fan . . . but not for his lackluster skills as a quarterback. He loves Tebow for “spreading the gospel.” In fact, Luther thinks Tim should just quit football right now . . . in order to, hypothetically, give sermons in front of sold-out stadiums. (–Just so you know: Luther IS serious.) Here’s his reasoning: Quote, “For the first time in the history of the NFL, a player is actually bigger than the game, the league needs him more than he needs it. -“Even non-football fans want to know why everyone is talking about this white kid spreading the gospel on the field.” However, Luther says Tebow is being ostracized for his beliefs just because he’s a football player. He cites the “Tebowing” and a recent “Saturday Night Live” sketch, “in which Jesus suggests that Tebow ‘take it down a notch’ on the worshiping and ‘read the playbook’ if he wants to win.” Luther says, quote, “That’s why it’s time for him to quit. Tebow could fill up a stadium with 70,000 people who want to hear him sermonize. If I were his adviser, I’d tell him to retire while he’s ahead. “Tebow can afford to walk away in his prime. Both [he] and the American people would be better served if he were spreading his gospel.” Luther actually wrote this for the “Miami New Times”.
That’s the Juice! 😉
