Deftones founding member bassist Chi Cheng dies at 42.

Cheng suffered from a serious car accident in 2008 and had been struggling to recover from major injuries suffered in a vehicle accident more than four years ago.

The 42-year-old member of the Grammy-winning Deftones was in a coma for some time, but had recently shown some signs of improvement, upgrading to a semi-conscious state and being able to move his hands slightly. He was able to move home to continue recovery and therapy.

Cheng was taken to an emergency room about 3 a.m. Saturday, his mother, Jeanne Marie Cheng, wrote on the One Love for Chi website, when his heart stopped.

His family released this statement in regards to his passing:

Our dearest Family,This is the hardest thing to write to you. Your love and heart and devotion to Chi was unconditional and amazing. I know that you will always remember him as a giant of a man on stage with a heart for every one of you. He was taken to the emegency room and at 3 am today his heart just suddenly stopped. He left this world with me singing songs he liked in his ear.

He fought the good fight.You stood by him sending love daily. He knew that he was very loved and never alone. I will write more later. I will be going through the oneloveforchi and any other information may not be reliable. If you have any stories or messages to share please send them to the onelove site. Please hold Mae and Ming and the siblings and especially Chi’s son, Gabriel in your prayers. It is so hard to let go.

With great love and “Much Respect!” Mom J (and Chi)

Chi is a founding member of the band and has played on all of their albums, except the two most recent ones — 2010’s Diamond Eyes and 2012’s Koi No Yokan — because of his condition.

Rest in peace, Chi.  Thank you for your music and all that you gave us as fans! You’ll be missed.

Fox News’ Dana Perino Slams Jay-Z with Rap

(CelebNMusic247-NewsFox NewsDana Perino Slams Jay-Z with Rap

To start we have to tell Dana Perino to stick to her day job and let rapper’s like Jay-Z spit lyrics!

Now on to the laughs?

For some reason former White House Press Secretary Dana Perino thought she could spit a few bars when it comes to responding to Jay-Z Open Letter track.

Perino throws some subliminal jabs at Jay-Z and Beyonce about their recent trip to Cuba.

Check it:

“If you don’t think Beyonce fears me, go ahead and ask her/so if you love Castro, stick with Jay-Z/But, if you love your freedom, pick Day-P.”

Obviously this is cringe worthy, but we know you still want to watch it.

Can guess what the other joke is here?

Reebok has released Rick Ross and no longer is endorsing to over-sized rapper, which he is now speaking out with an official apology in a statement her penned.

Rozay official statement for press reads as follows:

“Before I am an artist, I am a father, a son, and a brother to some of the most cherished women in the world. So for me to suggest in any way that harm and violation be brought to a woman is one of my biggest mistakes and regrets. As an artist, one of the most liberating things is being able to paint pictures with my words. But with that comes a great responsibility. And most recently, my choice of words was not only offensive, it does not reflect my true heart. And for this, I apologize. To every woman that has felt the sting of abuse, I apologize. I recognize that as an artist I have a voice and with that, the power of influence. To the young men who listen to my music, please know that using a substance to rob a woman of her right to make a choice is not only a crime, it’s wrong and I do not encourage it. To my fans, I also apologize if I have disappointed you. I can only hope that this sparks a healthy dialogue and that I can contribute to it.”

—William Roberts (a.k.a “Rick Ross”)
