LOS ANGELES, California ( The Adobo Chronicles) – He did it twice. First at the MTV Music Awards, then at the Grammys Rapper Kanye West took to the stage, unscripted, to grab the limelight from Taylor Swift and Beck, respectively.

The rest is history. West has been banned from attending all televised awards shows  including the Grammys, MTV Music Awards, and even the Oscars, and has been out of a job since.

The Adobo Chronicles caught up with the husband of reality show star Kim Kardashian at the latter’s home, baking some cookies for the night’s dessert.

“This is my new role, a stay-at-home husband since I have not had any performance or recording contracts for months now,” West said. The rap artist was remorseful and apologetic for his shenaningans at the awards shows and says he hates the idea of Kim being the sole breadwinner in their household.

SAN FRANCISCO BANS WILD AND EXOTIC ANIMALS FROM CIRCUSES, FILMS AND TV

SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – For the longest time, it has been the ‘elephant in the room’ in circuses, films and television shows: wild and exotic animals used commercially for public amusement.

This week, the ultra radical San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously approved an ordinance banning performances by these animals in circuses and on film. It takes effect in 30 days.

Passage of the measure, opposed by the circus and motion picture industries, makes San Francisco the largest city to adopt such a sweeping prohibition on the commercial use of wild animals for public amusement.

The ordinance does not apply to domesticated animals, such as dogs, cats, horses and other livestock or pets. Educational activities or exhibitions accredited by certain zoological and museum organizations are also exempt.

It does bar any public showing, carnival, fair, parade, petting zoo, ride, race, film shoot or other undertaking in which wild or exotic animals “are required to perform tricks, fight or participate as accompaniments for the entertainment, amusement or benefit of an audience.”

Wild and exotic animals are defined as any nondomestic or hybrid creature, whether or not it was bred in captivity. That means elephants, tigers, lions, apes, monkeys, snakes, deer, politicians and right-wing conservatives.

It wasn’t clear whether films like ‘Planet of the Apes,’ filmed in the San Francisco Bay Area (including the Golden Gate Bridge) will be banned from being shown in local theaters and television, or rented out through Netflix.

TORONTO, Canada (The Adobo Chronicles) – Justin Bieber has appealed to Pope Francis to intercede after an Argentine judge issued an arrest warrant for the Canadian singer for failing to respond to summons related to allegations he ordered bodyguards to attack a photographer in 2013.

Judge Alberto Julio Banos ordered the “immediate detention” of Bieber and bodyguards Hugo Alcides Hesny and Terrence Reche Smalls.

Bieber is accused of sending the bodyguards to attack photographer Diego Pesoa outside a Buenos Aires nightclub. Bieber never returned to Argentina to respond to questions about the incident.

Under Argentine law, Bieber would face from one month to six years in prison if convicted on a charge of causing injuries.

After being informed of the arrest order, Bieber immediately asked Pope Francis to convince the judge to cancel the warrant. The singer, who previously had been in trouble with the law many times in the U.S., made his appeal on social media, posting the following message on the Pope’s Facebook page:

“Your Excellency (sic) , please help and use your Argentinan (sic) influence to convince Judge Banos to cancel the warrant for my arrest. With my busy schedule of concerts and recordings, I don’t have the time to fly to Buenos Eres (sic) to appear before the judge. I promise to go to confession and receive Holy Community (sic)  when I come visit The Vatican this summer. I will even stage a free concert at St. Peter’s Square.”

As of presstime, the Pope has not replied to Bieber’s post.
