Raps pay up after Drake tries to lure KD

Heebonics - Thursday August 14, 2014
Toronto hip-hop megastar Drake has come under fire for an invitation he seemingly extended to reigning NBA MVP Kevin Durant.

During his fifth-annual OVO fest – which took place on Caribana weekend and attracted more than 40,000 fans out to the Molson Amphitheatre Aug. 3 and 4 – Drake, who is the Toronto Raptors' "global ambassador," invoked a rowdy response from attendees when he asked the crowd to show the Oklahoma City Thunder star "what would happen if he came to play in Toronto."

According to reports, the NBA deemed Drake's comments to Durant, who becomes an unrestricted free agent in two years time, to be in violation of the league's anti-tampering rules and slapped the Raptors with a $25,000 (US) fine.

A Globe and Mail report said the league offered to drop the fine if the team removed the rap star's title of global ambassador, but the team reportedly refused and elected to pay the fine instead. The NBA is vehemently denying ever having made the offer.

Only meaning to do right by what he calls "the greatest city in the mother-f***ng world," Drake has nothing but love for his hometown and the Raptors, and only wants to see them succeed and rise to become NBA champions.

Do you feel he did wrong? Tweet us @heebonics with your thoughts.

Big Bang star co-hosts revival of Candid Camera

Heebonics - Thursday August 14, 2014
Mayim Bialik, former child star on the NBC hit series Blossom and now an Emmy-nominated actress for her work on the CBS hit comedy The Big Bang Theory, has made the news quite a bit in recent months.

Last fall, Bialik lent her voice to an animated character in Stan Lee's Mighty 7, and last month, she grabbed headlines advocating for religious tolerance in the wake of Israel's Operation Protective Edge.

Earlier this week, Bialik debuted as the co-host for the 10-episode relaunch of the original televised prank show Candid Camera, airing on TV Land in the U.S.

Candid Camera was originally created and hosted by the late Allen Funt in 1948, and Funt's son, Peter, is Bialik's co-host on this latest incarnation. They're joined by celebrity guest stars who help pull off practical jokes on unsuspecting people.

Candid Camera has spawned many imitators over the years, from Montreal's Just for Laugh's Gags shorts to Ashton Kutcher's popular series Punk'd to SyFy's Scare Tactics.

"It is kind of a giant social experiment to see how people behave when there's no logical explanation for why things are happening," Bialik, who has a a PhD in neuroscience, said of Candid Camera. "It's fascinating to see how people try to make sense of these gags."

We at Heebonics wish her much naches in making their marks smile.
