Lil Wayne was interviewed by Vibe which got really political. Wayne discusses life for blacks in America, and says that right wing Americans dislike blacks.
“You learn from what the right-wing is doing and you take something from it,” he said. “I feel like as a people, the most that we can do is better ourselves and learn. Then look at yourself and ask, ‘Am I the person they’re talking about or am I not?’ You have to make the most of who you are because the Republicans are never going to like us.”
Wayne also believes right wing attacks against Obama are motivated by his race rather than his political policies.
“I don’t think I have to say that for everybody to know that,” he said.
Interestingly, Wayne does support the tax polices of right wing America. So, there is something at least.
Soulja Boy owes $26,805 in back taxes. He was also alleged to have owed the State of Mississippi $3,571 in back taxes, but settled that bill last month, reports RadarOnline.com.
However, even though he can’t pay his tax bill, he still threw a $300,000 birthday party for his friends in Miami.
Dude, stop lying about planes and start paying your bills.
Today News reports ‘Survivor’ winner Richard Hatch has been ordered to go back to prison to serve a nine-month sentence for failing to pay taxes on the $1 million he won on the first season of ”Survivor.”
The reality star, who is currently appearing on NBC’s “The Celebrity Apprentice,” spent more than three years in prison for tax evasion and was released in 2009. Since then he has been serving a three-year term of supervised release. During this period, he was supposed to refile his 2000 and 2001 taxes and pay what he owed, but he never did. Shocker.
During the hearing, Hatch told the judge that he had fully cooperated with the terms of his release, and that his taxes were extremely complicated and he was working with an accountant to determine from the IRS what he owed.
Hatch also told the judge he recently discovered he had a second son and was trying to build a relationship with him. He asked that, because of that and the job opportunities that could come out of his “Celebrity Apprentice” appearance, not to send him back to prison.
I mean, really? You think the judge is going to let you go because you found out you have a son and are on a reality show? Please, if you’re stupid enough to go to jail for something, be released, and do the wrong thing AGAIN, you deserve to go to jail. I have no remorse for this guy. You won a million dollars. Pay your taxes.
I guess this is also going to interfere with The Celebrity Apprentice, which kind of sucks, because I watch the show and thought he was a really good competitor. I don’t understand all of this because on the show, Hatch seems like a really smart guy. How can someone so business-savvy forget to pay his taxes?
Part of me believes he’s willingly not paying them, but that’s just my suspicion. Guess he’ll have to survive in jail for another nine months.
On the season premiere of the 25th season of her talk show, Oprah announced to her entire audience that she was taking them all to Australia. Better yet, Oprah has also made it clear that she’ll be picking up the tab on the taxes too.
According to TMZ, the last time Oprah gave away something huge—a car for everyone in her audience—it wasn’t such a great experience, as the “lucky” audience members got slapped with up to $7,000 in gift taxes.
TMZ also spoke to Larry Edema, one of the lucky audience members going to Australia, who said that a certified public accountant was at the taping of Oprah and was also told that all of the taxes for the Australia trip will be “handled by the Oprah show.”
All we can say is that these people are extremely lucky.
Paul Hogan, star of the “Crocodile Dee” franchise is in deep tax trouble with the Australian government. Hogan is saying he can’t even afford to pay 10 percent of what the Australian government says he owes in back taxes.
In an interview with the news program “A Current Affair,” Hogan explains that he is barred from leaving Australia and that the government is on a witch hunt.
“I actually came out here at the request of the Australian Crime Commission at my own time and expense to assist them with their inquires,” he said in the interview. “If I was a tax evader, which I’m not, I must be the dumbest one in the world, because they gave me five years notice that they have seized every piece of paper that my tax advisers and lawyers and accountants have ever had. I kept coming back here.”
The Australian government claims he used offshore bank accounts to conceal earnings since his low-budget “Crocodile Dundee” movie became an international hit in 1986. The government is claiming he owes 38 million Australian dollars in back taxes.
