Mark David Chapman Says He Is Spiritually Forgiven For John Lennon’s Murder

A recently sold letter by a webite revolving around infamous killers and their possessions, details that John Lennon’s killer, Mark David Chapman, has found forgiveness in Christ. After murdering the famous Beatle in 1980, he was sentenced to 20 years to life and has been denied for parole twice. The letter describes how Chapman found Jesus and that while he deeply regrets his actions, the latter’s death means the former’s sins could be forgiven. Which should be important to him because he probably won’t find that in anyone else.

Lana Del Rey Withdraws ‘Cola’ From Shows Following Harvey Weinstein Scandal

With her L.A To The Moon tour set to kick off just into the 2018 year, Lana Del Rey should be in a pretty happy mood. However, she has some sad news to deliver to the fans expecting to see her. Following the disturbing allegations surrounding Harvey Weinstei, she will no longer be performing ‘Cola’ off her Paradise EP, due to the subject matter of the track. While the theme of the track was her original intent, the singer does not want to hurt any fans who might have suffered similarly and expresses her support for the women who have come forward. Instead, she plans to retire the song from performance. Regardless, of what she will replace it with, it’s an honorable decision and her fans should still look forward to an amazing tour.

The Minds Behind The Hamilton Ponzi Scheme Accept Plea Deal

Historically, it’s been almost impossible to acquire tickets to Broadway success, Hamilton. So much so that it attracted the attention of some rather shady operators. Fortunately, justice has been served, Back in January, Joseph Meli and Steven Simmons were arrested for their roles in creating ticket ponzi scheme reaching an excess of over $81 million. Now, Meli has accepted a plea offer which reduces a slew of charges to just one charge of securities fraud. While that sole charge could have brought a sentence of 20 years, Meli’s sentence has been reduced to merely six and a half. While that’s definitely no picnic, given the magnitude of the ordeal, it’s a slap on the wrist compared to what could have alternatively faced. No word on what happened to Simmons following his arrest.

UK Officials To Train Concert Security For Potential Future Acts of Terrorism

In the past year, the amount of terrorist related attacks at music venues and concerts has grown disturbingly. From the Ariana Grande concert to the Las Vegas shooting to just this past week when a shooting occurred at a rave in London, it happens more and more in spaces meant to bring happiness and unite people. That’s why, in an effort to prevent the awful incidents, the UK has annouced the decision to train bouncers and security guards to be able to respond appropriately in the event of a terrorist act. Given what the risks vs rewards are here, the UK’s effort to be more proactive appears to be an concept that more countries should adopt.

Chris Brown Has A Sneaky Surprise For The Billboard Charts

Do the metrics for the Billboard charts make any sense? Didn’t think so and Chris Brown is on a mission to prove just how ridiculous they are. After releasing a headscratcher of a 45 track album, Hearbreak on a Full Moon, the singer posted the musical equivalent of an NFL playbook for his fans to help the monster project to the #1 spot on the charts. With plans for people to make new streaming service accounts and buy multiple copies of the album and only a few days to accomplish the task, will Breezy be able to accomplish his task. Regardless, his ploy should at the very least drawn attention to how absurd the metrics for determining a charting artist are. Only time will tell.
