Juice WRLD swallowed a bunch of painkillers in an attempt to hide them from the feds.
Law enforcement sources say the pilot who was flying Juice's private plane alerted authorities on the ground that the rapper's entourage had guns on them. When they landed, FBI and FAA agents were waiting for Juice and company.
Somewhere between the plane landing and the feds conducting their search ... Juice was seen swallowing several Percocet pills in what people believed was an attempt to hide them. Our sources say the pills might've contributed to his death in a possible OD.
An autopsy was performed on the rapper Monday, but additional testing, including toxicology, cardiac pathology and neuropathology is still needed before determining an official cause.
3 guns were seized all registered, and 70 lbs. of weed allegedly found in multiple vacuum-sealed bags inside luggage from the private jet.
Two of Juice's associates were arrested for gun possession. Both men are already out of jail.
Lizzo has also just released a second video for her 2016 single “Good as Hell,” her second sleeper hit which recently reached #3 on Billbaord Hot 100.
The music video features the Southern University Human Jukebox band and was shot entirely on the SU campus. When it dropped in 2016, “Good As Hell” originally got a music video set at a hair salon, but with its newfound popularity (it recently climbed up the Hot 100 to No. 3), Lizzo’s giving it a make-over. Plus, the video is a perfect excuse to show off Sasha Flute, her instrument of choice.
Lizzo recently faced backlash for showing off a little too much at a Lakers vs. Timberwolves game on Sunday night. The singer wore a booty-revealing dress to the basketball game, which some feel was inappropriate.
Juice Wrld who's real name is Jarad Anthony Higgins is dead after suffering a seizure in Chicago's Midway airport.
Juice's flight from California landed early Sunday morning and, after deplaning ... witnesses say he suffered the seizure while walking through the airport. Law enforcement sources say he was bleeding from the mouth when paramedics got on scene.
Juice was still conscious when he was rushed to a hospital. However, he was pronounced dead a short time later at the hospital. The cause of death is unclear at this time.
Juice Wrld's major-label career was just starting after he almost climbed to the top of the charts in 2018. His first huge hit came in summer 2018 with "Lucid Dreams" ... which made it to #2.
His song, "All Girls Are the Same," also became a hit when Lil Yachty was featured on the remix.
Juice also had a feature on Travis Scott's enormous "AstroWorld" album, singing the hook on the track, "No Bystanders."
Higgins' stage name was reportedly inspired by Tupac Shakur's performance in the 1992 film, "Juice."
Juice Wrld just turned 21 last Monday.

Less than a year after the video-sharing app Musical.ly -- which turned into TikTok in August 2018 -- reached a $5.7 million settlement with the Federal Trade Commission over alleged violations of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, a new class-action lawsuit filed against the company suggests that settlement didn't go far enough.
"Defendants have not made whole the millions of consumers harmed by their unlawful conduct," the complaint reads. "Accordingly, Plaintiffs bring this class action for relief.”
Filed on Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Illinois by plaintiffs T.K. (through her mother Sherri Leshore) and A.S. (through her mother Laura Lopez), the new complaint alleges that the Musical.ly app “surreptitiously tracked, collected, and disclosed” the personal information of minor children without their parents’ or guardians’ consent, selling their data to third-party advertisers while also opening them up to attacks by child sexual predators. The plaintiffs -- who estimate the size of the class affected by Musical.ly’s alleged actions at six million U.S. users -- are asking for actual, statutory and punitive damages in an amount to be determined at trial.
In the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that Musical.ly (which was purchased by TikTok's parent company ByteDance for $1 billion in December 2017) failed to put appropriate safeguards in place to protect users under age 13, including failure to obtain parental consent before sharing minor children’s personal information and making that information publicly available by default to other users on the app. They further allege that between December 2015 and October 2016, the app collected geolocation data, thereby enabling users to identify the location of other users, including children.
“Because the App had virtually all privacy features disabled by default, there were serious ramifications, including reports of adults trying to contact minor children via the App,” the complaint reads.
Defendants named in the suit include ByteDance Technology, Musical.ly Inc., Musical.ly The Cayman Islands Corporation and TikTok Inc.
When reached for comment, a TikTok spokesperson sent Billboard the following statement:
"TikTok is firmly committed to safeguarding the data of its users, especially our younger users. We were made aware of the allegations in the complaint some time ago and, although we disagree with much of what is alleged in the complaint, we have been working with the parties involved and are pleased to have come to a resolution of the issues.”
The complaint notes that while defendants began advising parents to monitor their children’s use of the app in October 2016, this guidance was “limited” and “mere ‘window dressing.’” It further alleges the company knew all along that young children were using the app, noting that a total of 46 of Musical.ly's most popular users were under the age 13 as of February 2017. Moreover, they accuse the company of actually encouraging young children to sign up by, among other things, creating song folders labeled “Disney” and “school," leveraging entertainers popular with preteens and teens to promote the app and offering tools that made it easy for children to create and upload videos. (Under terms of the FTC settlement, TikTok was forced to remove all videos by users under the age of 13.)
“For the reasons discussed herein, Defendants had actual knowledge they were collecting personally identifiable information and/or viewing data from children,” the complaint continues. “The youth of the user base is easily apparent in perusing users’ profile pictures and in reviewing users’ profiles, many of which explicitly noted the child’s age, birthdate, or school.”
The complaint includes a total of five counts, including violation of the Video Privacy Protection Act; Intrusion Upon Seclusion; violation of the California Constitutional Right to Privacy; violation of the California Consumers Legal Remedies Act; and violation of the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act.
Tuesday’s suit only adds to the current legal and regulatory headaches for TikTok, which is already under investigation by the U.K. Commissioner’s Office over its use of children’s data. In October, the National Music Publishers Assocation called on Congress to investigate the app over potential copyright theft, while last month reports indicated the company had become the subject of a national security review in the U.S. over concerns of censorship and counterintelligence by the Chinese government, where its parent company ByteDance is based.
Niki DeMartino just dropped her new music video for “Sad Holiday”.
“‘Sad Holiday’ is a song about oneself feeling bad for being sad during the holidays, which should be ‘the happiest time of the year’ for people,” the 24-year-old singer explained to JJJ. “Instead of singing about a romantic relationship during the holidays, like most Christmas songs do, I decided to sing about mental health during this time of the year.”
Niki tells her fans that, “Christmas is celebrated and promoted as a cheerful season, when a lot of people going through struggles feel worse this time of year, in contrast to how happy other people are.”
“Although the song lyrics are a harsh bit of reality to some people, the sad song remains upbeat, and leaves the listener with some hope, with the lyrics constantly repeated “hold on it’ll be alright, fake a smile to get through the night.” I want the listener to relate, feel understood, and have hope after listening.”
