Ja Rule and Billy McFarland's Fyre Festival catastrophe is now the subject of a mail, wire and securities fraud investigation by the FBI, a new report indicates.
The potential costs of the disastrous Fyre Festival last month continue to stack up for its organisers Ja Rule and Billy McFarland, with the FBI reportedly now launching a federal investigation into possible mail, wire and securities fraud.
At the end of last month, the Fyre Festival on a private island in the Bahamas went viral for all the wrong reasons as ticketholders reported scenes of total chaos. Luxury camping turned out to be refugee tents, gourmet food turned out to be soggy cheese sandwiches, and packs of feral dogs were roaming the grounds as flights were cancelled and luggage severely delayed.

Things are going from bad to worse for Ja Rule and co-organiser Billy McFarland, as TMZ reports that the Bahamas authorities will not allow another Fyre Festival to take place there.
After the mass schadenfreude that greeted the disastrous Fyre Festival in the Bahamas last weekend, things are going from bad to worse for its organisers, with reports that the islands’ authorities are banning the festival from taking place there again.
According to a new report from TMZ, the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism have decided upon a “stricter vetting system” for all new proposed festivals and mass entertainment events taking place on the islands in the future, following the farcical events surrounding the Fyre Festival that went viral on social media.

The luxury Fyre Festival, on a private island in the Bahamas, has turned into a disaster amid cancelled flights and appalling organisation, it has been widely reported.
The Ministry of Tourism of Bahamas has issued a “heartfelt apology” after the luxury Fyre Festival, co-organised by rap star Ja Rule, was cancelled this week, leaving angry music fans who had paid up to $12,000 per ticket stranded on the island amid cancelled flights and shambolic organisation.
Furious ticket holders have bombarded social media since arriving on the Caribbean island this week, expressing their outrage at finding discarded rubbish, wild dogs, cancelled flights, lack of security, poor quality food, half-built infrastructure and general chaos when they had been promised a luxury VIP festival of music, arts and food.

However, when they're parents call them back to their childhood home, they discover that it's been sold and they have to clean out the room they had as girls. Going through their old stuff brings back a lot of memories though, and Jane decides to encourage Maura to throw a huge neighborhood party before they have to leave. It's a time where they can re-connect to their teenage selves, hook up with some cute guys and get totally drunk. This is going to be messy.

Can you believe JLo has never performed a gig in the Bronx? Well, not anymore.
She really is still Jenny from the block. Fifteen years into her successful career, Jennifer Lopez returned to her home for her first ever concert in the Bronx Wednesday night. There’s a theme here – JLo has kept up her connection to the Bronx throughout her career, so what better time to return – or to make her debut – than the fifteenth anniversary of her first album On The 6. Fun fact – the album was named after the subway line that connected Lopez’ home to her big city dreams.
With numerous costume changes, Lopez walked down memory lane back throughout her fifteen years on stage.
Now an international superstar, Lopez definitely returned in style, with a free, 90-minute concert at Orchard Beach in Pelham Bay Park for State Farm's Neighborhood Sessions, featuring some amazing choreography, abundant pyrotechnics and several guest performers. Ja Rule, Fat Joe and French Montana all made appearances throughout the night, which was themed around Lopez’ Bronx-gone-Hollywood story.

The platinum-selling rapper Ja Rule has ended the prison sentence for his gun possession charge, but found himself straight back in federal custody on tax charges
Ja Rule’s prison sentence for illegal possession may well be over but the rapper headed straight from one sentence to another: this time for unpaid tax offences. Associated Press report that the platinum-selling rapper left his upstate New York prison yesterday morning (February 21, 2013) but headed straight back into federal custody, owing to a tax case that’s hanging over his head.
According to the report, Ja Rule was escorted from the Mid-State Correctional Facility at 9:30am. The 36 year-old had been held at the Oneida County Jail, where he will find out where he’s due to serve time for the tax case. The rapper had been in protective custody, due to his fame and now has time remaining on a 28 months sentence for tax evasion, which ran concurrently to his gun crime sentence. It’s likely that his sentence will last less than six months and he may even be eligible for a halfway house, according to defence attorney Stacey Richman. She explained that it’s because of those unpaid taxes that Ja Rule is pretty keen to get back to work. And of course his fans are keen to see that happen, too.
Assistant US attorney Joseph Mack confirmed that Ja Rule, real name Jeffrey Atkins, owes the IRS $1.1 million and was unsure how much, if any, had been paid. In March 2011, Atkins told a judge “I in no way attempted to deceive the government or do anything illegal," he told the judge. "I was a young man who made a lot of money — I'm getting a little choked up — I didn't know how to deal with these finances, and I didn't have people to guide me, so I made mistakes.”
The Cookout is a comedy-drama about a ton of interesting social dynamics: About the potential backlash of instant fame and fortune (and the resulting intra-urban pressure not to succeed), about the endless small stereotypes that white people make about black people (and the endless small stereotypes that black people make about white people), and about the need for people, black or white, to be true to themselves.

Scary Movie 3 sticks with the program: mind-bogglingly dumb characters hustle their way through spoofs of the industry's most popular recent films. It's no mistake that the roasted movies -- in this case: Signs, The Ring, and 8 Mile -- all pull in huge money and attract a young audience.

By my calculations - and this is far from scientific - Seagal appears in approximately 15% of his own scenes. The rest of the time, director Don Michael Paul uses quick-cuts, (very) large shadows and wide-angle shots taken from a distance to hide the liberal use of a body double. So why use Seagal at all? Is he really a draw? An effective marketing tool?

Real life hip hop stars Pras and Ja Rule star as an ambitious young rapper and his violent best friend/producer in "Turn It Up," a film spawned by Pras' song "Ghetto Superstar," which appeared on the soundtrack for Warren Beatty's bold political satire "Bulworth."
But while these two recording artists do a sincere and effective job making their characters feel true-to-life and depicting the ugly side of the rap label biz, the movie adheres to a formula of "money, drugs and 'hos" (to quote Ja Rule's character) that is neither ambitious nor bold.
With a pretty standard edge-of-the-ghetto backdrop and a plot concerning what Pras' perfectionist proto-rapper is willing to do to make his dream come true, "Turn It Up" mixes the predictable (a ruthless drug kingpin, a pregnant girlfriend, an absentee father looking for redemption) with a few Hong Kong-style shootouts that making killing look cool as long as you're killing people less moral than yourself.
