M&M's has just announced their new coffee flavors sending coffee drinkers everywhere eager to get their hands on a bag.

Caramel Cold Brew will make its debut in early 2023 and promises a crunchy caramel latte taste in the center with chocolate on the outer layer and the colorful M&M shell we've all grown to love. The company explained that as Gen-Z continued to gravitate towards coffee, they decided it was the perfect time to give them candy to go along with it.

"Mars' M&M'S brand decided to tap into the booming cold brew coffee scene and pair it with a confectionery favorite - caramel," said Allison Miazga-Bedrick, Senior Marketing Director at Mars Wrigley.

While the Caramel Cold Brew is making its entrance at the top of next year, M&M's is also preparing another coffee-inspired flavor with the Espresso M&M's. A Crunchy Espresso flavor was released a few years ago to rave reviews but only for a limited time. While this new spin on Espresso isn't exactly the same, fans will get the same great brew taste. This dark and milk chocolate blend will feature a strong coffee center, arriving by the end of the year ahead of the Caramel Cold Brew.

There's no word yet on whether the Caramel Cold Brew or Espresso are limited edition offerings or which stores will supply them.

A respected NAACP leader was brutally killed during an attack when the car he was riding in was ambushed in Turks and Caicos.

On Sunday, as Kent Carter of Arlington, Virginia, was vacationing for his 40th birthday in the Turks and Caicos Islands, investigators say a gang-related shooting spree broke out in the Long Bay area of Providenciales, one of the primary tourist areas in the islands. Carter was a passenger in a vehicle that was carrying tourists and guides back from an excursion. That is when the violent gang randomly opened fire on the car. Carter, a tour guide, and one of the suspects were killed. Five other people, including another American tourist, were injured.

Carter was a respected member of his community, leading the local NAACP chapter as vice president and lending himself to various housing, education, and economic causes. He was also a well known real estate agent, veteran and devoted father. Julius D. Spain, president of the NAACP branch where Carter served, said there were no words to describe the immense amount of mourning that was taking place. Carter's family, who was notified of his death on Tuesday, says they were not ready to make a public statement about his untimely passing. The NAACP branch in Arlington issued a statement, sending their condolences to Carter's family.

"May God grant them strength during this time of sorrow," the statement read.

Police Commissioner Trevor Botting says that Kent Carter nor the other victims were targeted. Instead, the rash of violence was a result of drug and turf wars. The investigation into the crime spree is ongoing.

A concussion doctor says Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa needs to put an end to his football career after suffering a concussion.

The conversation around football players and their well-being and mental health is somewhat finally coming to the forefront after being neglected and looked over for years. The topic is now fresh in our minds following 24-year-old Tua Tagovailoa's tragic injury when the back of his head hit the ground on a sack by Cincinnati nose tackle Josh Tupou.

The video of Tagovailoa going into a "fencing response," in which his fingers and arms were flexed in a fixed position, which is usually a result of a concussion or brain injury. He was immediately taken off the filed and hospitalized. That incident came just four days after he seemed unstable after a tackle during a game against the Buffalo Bills.

Now, Bennet Omalu - a well-known neuropathologist with a history of finding chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) in former football players - is calling for Tagovailoa to give up the game permanently for the sake of his health.

"Tua, my brother. I love you," said Omalu in a conversation with TMZ. "I love you as much as I love my son. Stop playing. Stop. Hang your helmet and gallantly walk away."

He continued: "My advice to him is, look, it's time. You've suffered severe, long-term permanent brain damage. He seized. ... If you love your life. If you love your family, you love your kids, if you have kids, it's time to gallantly walk away. Go find something else to do."

He ended his comments by saying: "He should stop. Sometimes money is not more valuable than human life. $20 billion is not worth more than your brain."

A Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) task force found thousands of fentanyl pills stored inside a box of "Classic Legos."

There appears to be an underground system of drug peddlers who are pushing fentanyl into schools and neighborhoods as the synthetic opioid crisis continues to wreak havoc in the country.

On Tuesday, a DEA task force in Manhattan found 15,000 fentanyl pills packed in two black bags inside the Legos box, which was in the back of a rented car near Hudson Yards, the New York Post reports. The force found the box at around 7 p.m. Only a few weeks have passed since thousands of rainbow-colored fentanyl pills were found inside candy packaging. As Halloween approaches, DEA agents are warning the public about the epidemic.

"Fentanyl is the most significant threat to our public health and our public safety," said DEA Special Agent Frank Tarentino, the New York Post reports. "This is just the tip of the iceberg. We have more seizures every day. In New York City, there is a drug overdose every three hours. Nationally it's every five minutes, 295 a day."

A new iPhone 14 feature helped police officers find a brutal crash that led to the deaths of six people.

Six people ages 21, 22, 22, 23 and 26 were all found dead after their car hit a tree in a yard. Police responded to the scene after receiving a 911 call from an iPhone recording that indicated the person who owned the phone was in a crash and wasn't responding to their phone at 2:16 a.m.

The iPhone recording is part of a new iPhone 14 feature that can reportedly feel, hear and measure a crash by jerks and changes in cabin pressure, the news outlet reports.

The group was reportedly in a black Honda at the time of the crash. One of the victims, 24, was taken to the hospital, where she died from her wounds.

In a recent interview with VladTV, Boosie shared his thoughts on the criminal charges against fellow Louisiana rapper Mystikal.

In August, Mystikal was arrested and charged with rape for the third time in his career. One month later, a Louisiana jury indicted him on several charges, including first-degree rape, stemming from a July assault over finances. The rapper was also charged with criminal damage to property, false imprisonment, domestic abuse battery by strangulation, simple robbery, and drug possession in the incident, all of which together carry a mandatory life sentence if convicted.

When asked about the laws in his home state, Boosie said Louisiana had "the worst laws ever."

"I just think it's a fucked up situation," Boosie added about Mystikal's legal trouble.

Although the woman had not been identified, Mystikal's previous attorney, Roy Maughan Jr., told the court that she had been in a longstanding relationship with the rapper since the 1990s, according to the New Orleans Advocate. However, VladTV revealed that the woman might be the mother of Mystikal's child, which encouraged Boosie to speak his peace.

"I didn't really know the baby mama was the thang. I'm just seeing it like y'all seeing it, as far as social media," he continued. "But, I can't believe no baby mama shit. I ain't lying. Even if I want to, I can't believe no baby mama shit. Ain't no tellin' what happened. If they together and money involved, and I don't know. I don't really see no serial rape going on with no baby mama. Serial is violent. I just saw serial rape on that muthafuckin' thing. Serial is violent," Boosie said, referencing Netflix's Dahmer. "I don't see no serial rape. Most times yo' dick go in yo' baby mama, it open up."

"You just fucked me up with the baby mama shit, 'cause when your dick go in there, it ain't no serial no more. It ain't violently," Boosie continued. I just know, shit, he need to try to figure it out cause most times, three strikes you out."

As the interview continued, he went on to defend Mystikal's character but ultimately revealed he "don't know."  "I may be wrong, I don't know," he said.

Beyoncé is "That Girl."

The "Alien Superstar" was out of this world in a look no one couple compare. On Wednesday, Queen Bey took to Instagram to post her amazing figure in a Lena Berisha custom-made dress.

The diamond corset dress draped perfectly along the star's curves with a black sheer corset underneath hugging her waistline. Pieces of the embellishments fell to rest on her thigh, creating a wrapped skirt.

Alongside the sparkly outfit, the Renaissance singer paired the dress with Tiffany and Co. jewelry-as she is the ambassador and hosted of the party, along with gold spiked pumps. She also wore a long dramatic black coat with puffy sleeves and a long train.

The party is just one of the many events the "Cozy" singer has been hosting. She hosted a disco-themed birthday party this year in NYC following fashion week, with many stars making an appearance. It looks like more stars were out for her Paris show, including Lori Harvey, Halsey, Chloe Bailey and more.

Ebro is speaking out after Akademiks accused the Hot 97 and Beats 1 personality of blackballing DaBaby and other hip-hop artists.

Last week, news broke that DaBaby's latest album, 'Baby on Baby 2,' was expected to sell less than 20K units, which was a significant decline in first-week sales compared to his 2020 album 'Blame it on Baby' which reportedly sold more than 100K units in the first week.

(new Image()).src = 'https://capi.connatix.com/tr/si?token=9c70969a-1597-42dd-9980-f3d56f4c8b56&cid=8d6b4040-04c9-4ad0-aa63-766b9eb4e9b9'; cnx.cmd.push(function() { cnx({ playerId: "9c70969a-1597-42dd-9980-f3d56f4c8b56", mediaId: "ef749d92-e987-4cbb-ab3e-e29e87277536" }).render("4805016848274521874cafa14bedd23d"); });

Despite the rapper's recent controversies, Ak believes Ebro is behind the declining numbers.

"Da Baby's last project in 2020, Blame it on Baby, sold 124K first week. His new project after being blackballed by Ebro, Apple Music is scheduled to do less than 20K," DJ Akademiks tweeted last week. "Now yall understand my Ebro convo... DSPs control who is hot and who is not. Fall out of favor with them... UR DONE."

The two went back and forth on Twitter following Ak's accusations.

I told u Ebro and Apple Music blackballed him. https://t.co/y8DczklEsp

— DJ Akademiks (@Akademiks) September 28, 2022

Baller Alert caught up with Ebro Wednesday, where he shared he's in no position of power to blackball anyone.

"I don't have that power," he said. "If the fans ain't coming to your concerts, and the fans aren't streaming your music- the music is on every platform. If the fans really want to go stream your sh*t, they type in your name and stream your sh*t."

Ebro agreed that DJs do have some sort of say in what gets played. However, it's the "fans that really dictate" what gets airplay.

"All programmers, all DJs, all radio people, they're out in the clubs, they're looking at social media, they're seeing what people are sharing and streaming- if people are f*cking with it, people play it," he said.

As far as DaBaby, Ebro claims social media critics don't think the rapper hasn't evolved musically and that he's just looking for someone to blame for the low sales.

The "Ebro in the Morning" host said when artists were on the come-up, they'd say things like, "I built this myself with me and my fan." But "as soon as they sh*t start slipping" they say they're being "blackballed."

Elsewhere in the interview, Ebro spoke on his relationship with Akademiks, which he's unsure where they stand, but did say if he saw him in public, he'd confront him for "popping all that sh*t." He says, however, Akademik doesn't "come outside," so the likelihood of that happening is questionable.

He also says Akademiks has an agenda and he's only concerned specifically about four artists who include DaBaby, NBA YoungBoy, Tory Lanez and 6ix9ine.

"He has an agenda or is on somebody's payroll or both."

A new Scooby-Doo film is going to depict the character Velma as a lesbian.

In a new Scooby Halloween special called "Trick or Treat Scooby Doo," Velma's sexuality will be portrayed for what may be the first time in the franchise's history. According to NBC, Velma will be seen taking a romantic interest in a character named Coco Diablo, who is played by Kate Micucci. Velma also reportedly flirts with Coco throughout the show. 

Conversations about Velma and her sexuality have been up for discussion for years. Back in 2020, "Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated" producer Tony Cervone said that his version of Velma is a lesbian. 

"We made our intentions as clear as we could ten years ago," said Cervone at the time. "Most of our fans got it. To those that didn't, I suggest you look closer."

The new movie was released online on Tuesday and will hit Cartoon Network on Oct. 14.

The cutout spiral denim jeans worn by celebrities and other top-tier influencers are coming back this winter season. But are the $500+ jeans worth it?

A post shared by MUGLER (@muglerofficial)


Founded by Thierry Mugler in 1973, the fashion house reimagined the fashion industry by making theatrical, architectural, and hyperfeminine clothes, often crossing gender barriers in the industry. The fashion brand was one of the first to incorporate non-traditional models, such as pornstars, drag queens, and transgender women. Responsible for the famous looks of Michael Jackson, Grace Jones, Beyoncé, and more, Mugler passed away in January 2022, leaving behind a dominating brand.

There's not a defining moment when the aesthetic jeans came back in style, but loyal fans of Megan Thee Stallion, Kylie Jenner, and Beyonce all want the MUGLER look.

The jeans are designed to perfect and accentuate every curve and actually retail for a fine penny. For the majority of the jean to be transparent-or contrasted with a different color, asks the question, what's the hype?

With sales driven mainly by celebrities, comfort may be the excuse for the overly expensive MUGLER jeans.

The MUGLER seam-detail Skinny Jeans are described as "jeans from MUGLER featuring blue, cotton blend, high waist, button fly fastening, belt loops, skinny cut, classic five pockets, exposed-seam detailing and contrasting panel detail," per Farfetch.

The MUGLER site also describes the jeans using "bi-material denim and stretch denim," advocating for a comfy fit.

And with the unique pattern jeans, many dupes out on the market are trying to compare. ZARA, Revolve, ASOS, and FashionNova are just some retailers competing with the jeans.

Therefore, if you can, it may be worth it to check out the original MUGLER jeans, but if you must ball on a budget, the dupes you can find at an online retailer are only missing the iconic MUGLER tag.
