Mass Animal Deaths Becoming Global Phenomenon, Scientists Baffled

The mysterious spate of mass bird and fish deaths just days into the New Year has turned into a global phenomenon as more and more animals are being found dead around the world. The latest two separate incidents saw thousands of fish found floating in a creek in Florida and 200 birds found dead on a highway bridge in Texas.

Here's a list of additional animal deaths discovered:

•450 red-winged blackbirds, brown-headed cowbirds, grackles and starlings found littering a highway in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

•3,000 blackbirds on roofs and roads in the small town of Beebe, Arkansas.

•Thousands of 'devil crabs' washed up along the Kent coast near Thanet.

•Thousands of drum fish washed along a 20-mile stretch of the Arkansas River.

•Tens of thousands of small fish in Chesapeake Bay, Maryland.

•Thousands of dead fish found floating in warm Florida creek.

•Hundreds of snapper fish found dead in New Zealand.

•Scores of American Coots found dead on Texas highway bridge.

According to Daily Mail UK: Swedish experts have said the shock of fireworks being let off near the city, in the south-east of the country, and difficulty finding food may have led to the deaths of the jackdaws.

Many of the birds are believed to have died from stress or as a result of being run over by vehicles while disoriented.

And scientists have also been left baffled by at least 100 tons of sardines, croaker and catfish washing up dead along the Brazil coastline near Paranaguá.

There were more fish deaths reported today in New Zealand, while in England, the carcasses of 40,000 devil crabs are strewn across a beach in Kent.

Hundreds of dead starlings and robins were found scattered in backyards in the Kentucky town of Gilbertsville while an estimated two million dead fish have washed ashore in Chesapeake Bay, Maryland.

They are the latest in a spate of incidents which are being blamed on New Year fireworks, thunderstorms, cold weather, parasites and even poisoning.

The internet has been abuzz with conspiracy theories about secret government experiments being behind the deaths, or it being a sign of a looming Armageddon at the end of the Mayan calendar next year.

Our theory is that man's severe distruction of the Earth has finally thrown us so off balance that the toxins in the air, water and ground are catching up in more ways that force people to actually pay attention. The phrase, "Global Warming," sounds less harmful than it is until blatant things like this begin to happen. It's probably not that scientists are "baffled," they most likely just don't want people to panic. Hopefully that lore about 2012 being end of days isn't actually true but with creepy things like this happening it makes you wonder.

Murderer Of Morgan Freeman's Granddaughter Sentenced To 20 Years

Morgan Freeman's step-granddaughter, E'Dena Hines is finally getting justice. Lamar Davenport, the man who killed Hines in 2015, has reportedly been sentenced to 20 years in prison, the Manhattan D.A. Cyrus R. Vance Jr. confirms.

Davenport's sentencing was mandated on Thursday (Jan. 17). He was convicted of manslaughter in May 2018. As previously reported, Davenport – who was dating Hines at the time – reportedly killed her in Aug. 2015 outside of their New York City apartment. Witnesses claimed that he repeatedly stabbed her as yelled out comments about religion.  E'Dena was 33.

Davenport was acquitted of second-degree murder after his lawyer argued that he was high on PCP at the time of the murder. A judge ultimately found him guilty of first-degree manslaughter however.

After he's released from prison, Davenport will reportedly be placed under post-release supervision for five years.

Despite the clear evidence, Soulja Boy insisted that he was still the "comeback king" of last year due to his other business ventures. "I HAD THE BIGGEST COMEBACK OF 2018," he wrote. "I RELEASED MY OWN VIDEO GAME CONSOLE IM THE FIRST RAPPER IN HISTORY TO DO SO!"

As previously reported, Soulja first made the declaration during his interview on The Breakfast Club on Jan. 16. Meek Mill, Tory Lanez, and Lil Yachty previously defended Tyga against Soulja's remarks. Additionally, Soulja took shots at Drake, Kanye West, and the Migos for influencing their musical style.

DAWN Relishes In Self-love On New Song "Sauce"

DAWN is back with a sexy single off her forthcoming project, New Breed. "Sauce" is a sonic ode to pleasing all her hedonistic sexual desires after a long work week. Lyrically, the song is filled with suggestive lines and clever double-entendres that are far from coy when describing what she wants in the sack.

Just as much as “Sauce” is about sex, it’s also about basking in self-pleasure that comes after genuine self-love. In a statement published by Stereogum, the former Danity Kane member described the message behind the song:

“‘Sauce" is about women taking pride in their prowess, and about being raised to celebrate my skin,” DAWN said. “I lost focus of that when so many men degraded and disrespected my brown skin. ‘Sauce’ is about being bathed in your own beauty, being sexy for you. The new breed of women are unapologetic about sex and the way they choosing to express themselves.”

DAWN recently joined Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex of Danity Kane for the DK3 reunion tour across the U.S. In an interview with Billboard, the Louisiana native revealed she wants to give fans more of her authentic self on New Breed.

“This album is my relationship with New Orleans, me as a woman, and how being from New Orleans has created a person in me that acts and sees things a certain way. "'Jealousy'" is a prime example of that,” she said. “I just want to give you the girl from the 9th Ward that you guys only met once on [MTV's] Making The Band.”

Listen to "Sauce" below. New Breed drops on Jan, 25.
