DOWNTOWN — This morning tons of internet users were surprised to discover that a new Public Enemy / Bernie Sanders poster was legit- at first, many had commented, they thought it was meme art.

It’s true: the hip-hop pioneers are set to perform at a rally for Bernie Sanders, at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Sunday, March 1.

Public Enemy have always been politically outspoken through their music and interviews. Their iconic 1988 track “Fight the Power” was famously featured in the opening sequence to Spike Lee’s “Do The Right Thing,” in which Rosie Perez rocks out with a fierceness some of us could only dream of.

The free concert and political rally- takes place just two days before Super Tuesday, when 14 states including California hold primary elections.

Other special guests include comedian Sarah Silverman and beloved actor Dick Van Dyke. Ohio State Senator Nina Turner, seen by many of Bernie’s supporters to be his likely running mate, is expected to be in attendance as well: she tweeted the poster art with a short and sweet “Thank you @MrChuckD for your support of our campaign! #BernieBruh #Bernie2020 #BigUs

Another surprising endorsement made in a recent announcement was Boots Riley, a Union Activist and Director of the film “Sorry to Bother You” who says he will be voting for the first time for the Vermont Senator, who is leading in polls and popular vote so far.

Sunday, March 1, Los Angeles Convention Center, South Hall, S Figueroa StLos Angeles, CA 90015

Doors open at 3:00 p.m., the event starts at 5:00 p.m.

“If you vote-by-mail,” the event page states, “be sure to bring your ballot with you so we can cast our votes for Bernie together before the rally kicks off.”

Madison Beer Stuns Assistant With Mercedes-Benz Birthday Gift

Published

on

LOS ANGELES (TMZ) — Madison Beer splurged for her personal assistant’s 30th birthday gift … and we ain’t talking expensive booze or jewelry, more like luxury wheels.

The surprise reveal went down Monday night in L.A. after the singer and some friends celebrated her assistant’s birthday. When dinner ended, Madison handed her assistant a bag, but it turned out to be empty. It was also a ruse.

Madison pulled out a key fob to a brand new Mercedes-Benz C300. Suffice it to say … Madison’s assistant was stunned and damn near speechless. Madison’s Mercedes gift helluva gesture, especially ’cause Madison knew about her assistant’s car trouble for a while.

We’re told her assistant’s 12-year-old whip kept breaking down. It’s a car she used a lot to run Madison’s errands and whatnot. Madison also knew her assistant’s dream was to one day own a white Benz. Madison delivered, and then some … a white-on-white model that tends to run upwards of $50k.

Goes without saying, Madison is super close with her assistant, and knew this would blow her mind. She was dead-on, as you can see in the video — which also reveals a sweet new nickname for boss Beer.
