Colombia mad over Wiz Khalifa's visit to Pablo Escobar tomb

American rapper Wiz Khalifa is stirring controversy in the South American nation of Colombia, where he laid flowers and smoked what looks like a joint at the tomb of cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar.

The rapper is an avid marijuana smoker and used his Instagram account to post several photos of him smoking at Escobar's tomb in Medellin. He played a concert in the city last week.

Colombians took to social media to express outrage.

Medellin's Mayor Federico Gutierrez called the rapper a "scoundrel." He suggested that instead of paying homage to Escobar, the performer should've brought flowers to Escobar's thousands of victims killed during the height of Colombia's drug violence in the late 1980s.

Review: The Mavericks ' new CD is a spinning wheel of styles

The Mavericks' "Brand New Day" is skillfully paced for the dancefloor, straddling the southern American borders and shores with a spinning wheel of styles and rhythms.

Led by rhapsodic vocalist Raul Malo, the band displays its usual high standards on tunes brimming with Tex-Mex accordions, Cuban rhythms, sophisticated 1960s pop, sensitive ballads and swirling bossa nova.

Opener "Rolling Along" contains the leitmotif of the band's first album on their own independent label — "Don't fix what ain't broken" — and suggests a distraction from some of life's many difficulties that, as of press time, is legal only in a handful of states.

The title track sounds like a long-lost Motown classic produced by Phil Spector in the 1970s and if "Easy As It Seems" doesn't inspire your inner Fred Astaire or Ginger Rogers, check if you still have a pulse.

"Ride With Me" combines a brochure for Tourism U.S.A. with Eddie Perez's Chuck Berryesque guitar, horn accents and Jerry Dale McFadden's swirling organ — road music customized for a cabriolet.

The Mavericks have a distinctive talent for mixing and matching, and Malo's Latino/Miami roots are a big part of his songwriting. "Wish You Well" and "Goodnight Waltz" offer a chance for intimacy on the dance parquet and Malo really lets it rip on "I Will Be Yours," a deeply romantic shuffle.

Closer "For The Ages" returns to Doug Sahm territory deep in the heart of Tex-Mex, ending with a brief singalong perfectly suited to close out the party. But don't despair, another Saturday night is just a week away again.

Punk legend Johnny Rotten supports Trump, Brexit vote

Count punk pioneer Johnny Rotten among President Donald Trump's supporters.

The former Sex Pistols front man, whose real name is John Lydon, tells ITV's "Good Morning Britain" that "there's many, many problems" with Trump as a person, but he's not racist. Lydon says Trump "terrifies politicians and this is joy to behold." He says he looks at Trump as "a possible friend."

Lydon is a U.S. citizen, but also weighed in on the politics of his native Britain, saying he's in favor of the UK's vote to leave the European Union last year. He says, "the working class have spoke and I'm one of them and I'm with them."

Review: Aimee Mann offers delicate takes on 'Mental Illness'

Aimee Mann plays to an illusory type on "Mental Illness," a serene album of delicate, mournful songs with characters walking off cliffs, stuck in holes and escaping to amusement parks.

Aiming to write the "saddest, slowest, most acoustic" songs as tongue-in-cheek confirmation of her image as a peddler of gloominess, Mann succeeds — maybe too well.

Pulling the plug on the electric charge of her recent projects, Mann's classy melodies soothe the heavy emotional themes but, as in a Philip Marlowe film or novel, the darkness rarely dissipates. The consistency in her depiction of frustrating or failed relationships may well be a plus but, if you happen to be slightly off-center yourself, it could tip you over.

Mercifully, the songs feature mostly acoustic guitar and piano — as well as some billowing string arrangements — but few of the instrumental ornaments which characterized her early solo albums with Jon Brion. Here they would have only amplified the psychosis and neurosis.

On "Rollercoasters," such rides and Ferris wheels are tools of escapism, while "Patient Zero" quickly knocks down any illusions of fitting in and succeeding in a new environment.

Mann dresses up "Philly Sinks" in a McCartneyesque tune that tugs you under as "animatronic bloodhounds bark/the wind-up mockingbirds sing" and before you can help it, you're joined at the hip with tragedy.

And so it goes. You may feel compelled to abandon all hope in the "Mental Illness" inferno. But, oh, those melodies are heavenly.

“I want my kids to have siblings, but the doctors don’t feel like it’s safe for me,” Kardashian says in the clip.

Both of Kardashian’s previous pregnancies were considered high-risk. 

During her first pregnancy, Kardashian had pre-eclampsia, a condition characterized by high blood pressure. During her second, she experienced placentia accreta, which happens  when the placenta attaches too deeply in the uterine wall.

Kardashian wrote about her pregnancy struggles on her website before delivering her son in 2015.

“I’m going to try to have one more baby,” Kardashian says in the clip, which teases scenes of the 36-year-old at a doctor’s office.

“I don’t want you to do something that would put you in danger,” Kris Jenner told her daughter. 

Kardashian and rapper Kanye West welcomed their first child, daughter North West, in June 2013. The couple wed in 2014, and welcomed son Saint West in December 2015.
