Sammy Hagar Teams With Police For Anti-Speeding Video -
Sammy Hagar is part of a new lip-sync video made by the Fontana, California Police Department.
The video shows officers going after speeders and chasing down a black 1982 Ferrari, which is the same sports car the Red Rocker drove in the original video for the song “I Can't Drive 55.” At the end of the song, Hagar says he finally got away with driving 55.
The video is now floating around social media with the department issuing a challenge to other police agencies to do their own fun video, with or without a rock star. Hagar is a Fontana native and jumped at the chance to help his police force when they reached out.

Elon Musk Closed His Instagram Account -
It looks like Elon Musk is a Twitter guy.
The SpaceX and Tesla CEO says he deleted his Instagram account because he doesn't like the platform. Explaining the deactivation on Twitter yesterday, Musk said "Instagram is so thirsty, yet gives you Death by Water," a reference to a T.S. Elliot Poem.
The deletion came shortly after rapper Azealia Banks posted a bunch of her own Instagram posts demanding Musk return her phone, which apparently was taken when she visited his mansion recently. A spokesman for Musk said he doesn't have her phone and that Musk doesn't even know her.
Banks posted a series of messages suggesting she was there to collaborate on a project with Grimes, a singer who has been dating Musk.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi actress Kelly Marie Tran wrote about being bullied online in a New York Times op-ed.
In June, the first woman of color to have a lead role in a Star Wars movie left Instagram after being harassed. She writes that “it wasn’t their words, it’s that I started to believe them. Their words seemed to confirm what growing up as a woman and a person of color already taught me: that I belonged in margins and spaces, valid only as a minor character in their lives and stories.”
But the 29-year-old says she's "not giving up" and she won’t allow herself to be "marginalized by online harassment."
