Man I don't think any one (well maybe the prosecutors) saw this coming. Paris Hilton, the heiress who got famous for doing nothing and the infamous 'One night in Paris' video, got sentenced 45 days in jail after being found guilty of violating her probation for a drink-driving conviction and she has no prospect of an early release meaning she has to serve all of the 45 days.
I'm sure she thought she will get away with it because it has been the fashion for celebs to get off with community service type sentences in the US. Her mother, Kathy was seen laughing when the demand for a custodial sentence was made during the prosecution's closing argument.
Kathy must have thought 'my daughter go to jail!HA what a joke.' I guess the prosecutors got the last laugh.
When the sentence was read out, Kathy then yelled 'you're pathetic' to the prosecutors.' Man why do rich people always think they are above every one else?
Paris must start her sentence on 5 June 2007 or she will get a 90 days sentence if she doesn't show up. I wonder why it couldn't be immediate? Anyways, can't wait til the 5, I'm sure you'll be watching too.

'My Number One' Gang Of Instrumentals

They are very few good bands to come out from the Afro pop movement in South Africa. In my opinion Bongo Muffin had been the only band to really listen to and buy their music but not anymore. Gang of Instrumentals has busted into the scene with their fresh beats that hook you first before you get swept away by their strong lyrics and tight rhythms, you find yourself hitting the repeat button over and over again.

I first got introduced to them by MTVBase where their video 'Number one' has regular play. Normally I don't can't find a SA band that has such infectious beats like this group.

There is this one line that I absolutely love in Mandla's rhyme towards his 'NO. 1' and that is when he says 'had a lot of first dates, first kisses, first hugs, never did it twice till you.' Man if that is not tight, I don't know what is..This group is really a band to look out for in the future and if they carry on like this and grow for the better, then the sky is really the limit for them.

For now all I know is that they are MY number one when it comes to deciding who to bop my head to.
