It’s not often that hardcore, gangster-rappers find themselves in the position that Dr. Dre is in, and that is what makes him so special.

You see, when it comes to the entertainment industry’s elite, there seems to be no end to the depravity.  We hear sordid and salacious tales of Hollywood’s dark corners all of the time, including a recent story in which actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin were arrested on major fraud charges.

Loughlin and her husband allegedly agreed to pay $500,000 to improve their children’s chances of getting admitted into USC.

The actress is one of about 40 people who have been charged in the scandal. Actress Felicity Huffman was also named in the indictment.

The aforementioned Dr. Dre was not named in that scandal, and proudly took to social media to poke fun at the situation, while also bragging about his daughter’s acceptance into USC.

And that’s not even the tip of the iceberg of Dre’s positivity.

Dre, who is from Compton, has made multiple donations to schools in Southern California, including a $10 million donation to Compton High School for a performing arts complex in 2017 and a $70 million donationto USC to create a new arts, technology and business academy in 2013. The latter gift came from both Dre and music producer-turned-entrepreneur Jimmy Iovine.

WATCH: Tiny Pup Protects 12 Year-Old Owner from Vicious Wild Animal

GOOD DOG!

There are times in every dog owner’s life in which man looks down at beast and wonders just how peculiar and unique this relationship really is. There are no companion animals more attuned to the human existence than our dogs.  (I’m sorry, horse-owners, but y’all come in a close second). These are members of the family who feel a duty and nobility about doing the dirty, animalistic work of the group…no matter the size. In Toronto this week, a young girl and her small dog made big news. An incredibly brave little Yorkie defended its owner, a 10-year-old girl, from a coyote that attacked the pair while out for a neighborhood walk in Toronto this week. The Yorkshire terrier, who the family rescued six years ago, suffered “extremely serious tissue injuries to her spine and her leg,” Dorothy Kwan, 10-year-old Lily Kwan’s mother, wrote on a crowdfunding page to raise money for the veterinarian bills. “You can see our dog putting herself between my daughter and the coyote,” Dorothy Kwan wrote. “Even after she was seriously injured, she continued to bark and chase the coyote away. She fought back.” The entire scene was captured on video: https://youtu.be/qTqXqoqMSWM The underdog yorkie did spend some time in a canine ICU, but returned home after a few days with 40 stitches and one heck of a story.

Joey Chestnut’s Gutsy Performance Breaks Another Hot Dog Eating Record

A feat unmatched for Chestnut, who is growing accustomed to the glory.

One of the 4th of July’s most time-honored traditions may also be one of its zaniest, and this year was no exception. Every Independence Day, the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest amazes spectators and onlookers alike, as the larger-than-life characters of the professional eating world take the stage for what is widely considered the ultimate test of their “sport”. And no, this isn’t the rinky-dink affair that you might find at your local frankfurter spot.  The pageantry and fanfare are unparalleled, as evidenced by the introduction afforded to the world’s most prolific hot dog downer. https://twitter.com/espn/status/1411730424913616907?s=20 And, if you thought for one second that Chestnut was going to phone it in in 2021, you’d be dead wrong. Chowdown champ Joey “Jaws” Chestnut broke his own record to gulp to a 14th win in the men’s Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest on Sunday, while Michelle Lesco took the women’s title. Chestnut downed 76 franks and buns in 10 minutes. That’s one more than he did in setting the men’s record last year, when the contest unfolded without fans because of the coronavirus pandemic. “It just felt good,” Chestnut, of Westfield, Indiana, said in an ESPN interview after his win Sunday. “Even if I was uncomfortable, having everybody cheer me and push me, it made me feel good.” Lesco, of Tucson, Arizona, downed 30¾ dogs in 10 minutes and called her win “an amazing feeling.” Reigning women’s champ and record-holder Miki Sudo skipped this year because she’s expecting a baby in a few weeks with fellow competitive eater Nick Wehry. https://twitter.com/woodwardsports/status/1412118527214034945?s=20
