Dinah Jane just dropped her three-track EP Dinah Jane 1.
“I’m so much of a closed book. I do not want anyone knowing what’s going on in my life,” Dinah shared with Billboard about her new music. “I’m very private and to myself, but I found out that expressing my story and what I’ve gone through is so much easier to come out through my music. It was very therapeutic, and in making these records, I found so much comfort and such relief. I feel so relieved just getting this all off my chest.”

Police say Kodak and 2 others attempted to enter the U.S. at the Lewiston-Queenston International Bridge in a Cadillac Escalade with a temporary California registration. They say Kodak was the driver, and officers discovered weed on him ... after further inspection of the vehicle they also found a Glock 9mm pistol which was undeclared by anyone in the Escalade.
There was also a Porsche traveling with Kodak's team with 3 other individuals. The driver of the Porsche admitted to having 2 loaded handguns and a third was found in the trunk plus more marijuana. A law enforcement source described one of the weapons as an "AK-style handgun with a 30-round magazine. It looks like an AK, but it's a handgun."

While Kodak never made it to his show in Boston, his tour bus did, and angry fans surrounded it after getting word he was a no-show.

Bolivian model Joyce Prado, 22, has lost her Miss Bolivia Universe title after becoming pregnant during her reign. Prado was stripped of her title because of pageant rules prohibiting pregnancy.
On Friday, the Bolivian modeling agency Promociones Gloria announced on Facebook that Prado, who had won the group's Miss Bolivia and Miss Santa Cruz pageants in 2018, was dismissed from her role as result of a "breach of contract."
"Promociones Gloria is announcing to Opinion Publica that the current Miss Santa Cruz and Miss Bolivia Universe 2018 has been stripped of her titles of Miss Santa Cruz and Miss Bolivia for reasons strictly related to a breach of contract, noting that we maintain cordial relations in an area of mutual understanding, honoring the confidentiality clause," the modeling agency wrote on Facebook.
While the modeling agency did not explicitly describe the nature of Prado's breach to safeguard a "confidentiality clause," Promociones Gloria did share more information on Instagram.
On Saturday, the agency shared a photo of an El Día Digital newspaper headline which read, "Joyce Prado is left without a crown because of her pregnancy."
In an interview with El Día Digital, Tatiana Limpias, an executive at Promociones Gloria, said the agency has "a five-year contract with Joyce," and that she "will remain in the ranks of the agency as a model."
That same day, Prado announced her pregnancy on Instagram. In the caption of her photo, the former queen wrote: "Becoming a father or mother may be the most important challenge that comes our way in life, but just as it can be difficult, it can also be the most rewarding thing in the world."
Prado was named Miss Santa Cruz in March 2018, and Miss Bolivia Universe in June 2018. Both pageants are hosted by the Promociones Gloria modeling agency in conjunction with Miss Universe.
Soulja Boy's home was burglarized a few days after he was thrown in jail for a probation violation, suspects allegedly used his stolen iPhone to brag about the crime on social media.
A caretaker for Soulja Boy's Agoura Hills home called police Monday night to report a burglary. We're told thieves made off with tons of jewelry, cash, a phone and other personal items.
Sources close to Soulja Boy tell us the stolen jewelry is worth over $500,000 -- a mix of chains, earrings and luxury watches ... and the burglars cleaned out the safe in his room, stealing another $100,000 in cash.
The robbers broke into Soulja's home shortly after we first reported the rapper was back in custody after violating his probation.
Police say a group of 5 men went on Soulja's IG Live bragging about the theft, and police believe these are their burglary suspects -- and they gained access to SB's Instagram through his stolen phone.
We're told the men from the video have also been reaching out to Soulja's celebrity friends ... telling them they're his new artists, claiming Soulja wants their music video posted on the celebs' IG accounts and hounding them for features.
And, because Soulja's behind bars, he probably doesn't know what happened.
