Iranian ‘Happy’ Dancers Sentenced To 91 Lashes

Published

on

The group of young Iranians who created a dance video to Pharrell’s song, ‘Happy’ have been sentenced to 91 lashes and between six months and one year jail time.

The video, which was uploaded to YouTube in May, features the group of six young men and women dancing around the country’s capital of Tehran, much like the videos which were done in other cities including Sydney, Paris, Johannesburg, New York and Berlin.

The video apparently broke Islamic Republic law, where women are not allowed to dance in public or appear publicly without a hijab covering their hair. In May, after the clip went viral, the dancers and director were detained and forced to apologize for their actions on state TV.

That same month, Pharrell took to Twitter to address the situation,

“It’s beyond sad these kids were arrested for trying to spread happiness.” he posted.

While the group has been sentenced to between six months and one year jail time along with 91 lashes, their sentences will not take place if they are not convicted of anymore crimes in the next three years.

Take a look at their Happy video below:

Jill Scott’s Drunken Disaster NOT The Result Of Divorce Drama … So She Says.

Published

Jill Scott is blaming it on the alcohol … not her divorce.

Jilly from Philly had one drink (or several) too many and decided to document her mood for all to see on social media. By the looks of it, she instantly regretted it.

Scott snatched the video down within hours of posting it, but that was still long enough for fans to reach out to the songstress with cries of concern in her comment section. Jill, who recently filed for divorce from her second husband, Mike Dobson, seemed to be crying in the beginning of the video … then laughing hysterically by the end. And, of course, her tribe of supporters took notice.

Unfortunately, Scott wasn’t here for the sympathy. Instead she clapped back at those insinuating she was drowning her divorce tears in a bottle of Henny. In an IG post captioned, “Real Talk. Good Night,” Jill explained that all y’all need to chill and not everything is about her ex.

So, do you believe her? Jill and Mike were married just 15 months before Scott filed for divorce citing “inappropriate marital conduct.” Dobson then went on a media tour shading the Neo-soul singer calling her controlling and evil.

Look, Jill, if you are hitting the bottle to hide your pain we won’t blame you. Even if it is “out of your mind” we’re sure it’s still stressful and that’s ok. On the other hand, if you were justing getting super lit on a Saturday, then more power to you!
