An Alabama woman has been charged with murder after she allegedly shot and killed another woman for not showing enough emotion after a hotly contested college football game. Adrian Briskey, 28, attended a party where patrons were watching the annual “Iron Bowl” contest between the University of Alabama Crimson Tide and Auburn University Tigers football squads last Saturday. After Auburn defeated Alabama in one of the most dramatic wins of the season, Birmingham sisters Michelle and Neketa Shepherd reportedly joked about the loss not being a big deal despite being fans of the Crimson Tide. Briskey took offense to the ribbing, according to Neketa Shepherd, and cursed at the women. After friends dismissed Briskey's outburst as nothing more than a drunken response, the Shepherd sisters were set to go home and found Briskey outside waiting for them. Although police in the town of Hoover say the women got into an argument that turned physical before Briskey fired her weapon, another account was offered. Shepherd says as they tried to move their vehicle from the parking lot and to talk with friends, Briskey began her violent assault. "She just started shooting. I heard five shots,'' Neketa Shepherd said to AL.com. "She was like 10 feet away. My sister never touched her, and she never touched my sister. They never had words." Michelle Shepherd, 36, and a mother of three, was pronounced dead on the scene. Her sister, who worked alongside her as a case worker with at-risk youth, tried to stop the bleeding as paramedics were called to no avail. Briskey was taken into custody in Hoover, and was awaiting transfer to the Shelby County Jail. She has been charged in the death of Michelle Shepherd and held on $75,000 bond.

Tampa Bay, I guess Kanye's voice is really being heard! N.Y. Post reports that it is official, and Kanye West has signed a deal with Adidas worth around $10 million. Kanye previously had a deal with Nike (Air Yeezy's) in which Kanye has recently put the company on blast, claiming to have barely received any royalties for his sneakers. This was the reason for Ye' cutting ties with them and moving on. Adidas and Mr. West? Hmm...Interesting.

Lil Mama was sued? When? and for what??
After being taken to court by a former lawyer, rapper Lil Mama has been ordered to pay $18,000 for money owed, interest, and other fees. According to TMZ, the lawyer worked for Lil Mama up until 2011, but was not paid from 2008 to 2011. Lil Mama's former attorney was also reportedly responsible for protecting the rights to the musician turned television show host/actress' stage name.
The judge in the matter ruled in the lawyer's favor and Lil Mama will now have to pay monies owed. The lawsuit comes weeks after the 24-year-old rapper starred in the CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story biopic on VH1. In the film, Lil Mama played the role of the late Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes," a role she says led Left Eye's sister to tears.
"After I got out of the scene, Rain started crying," said Lil Mama during an interview with Vlad TV. "And I said, 'What's wrong?' And she said, 'Nothing's wrong. Everything is right.' And that melted my heart to know that I pleased her 'cause your siblings, like that's the closest thing to you."
