While the UK appears to consider David Beckham as the poster boy for bomber jackets, U.S. searchers turn to none other than Kanye West as the herald of this trend. When it comes to color schemes, black, olive and green are the most popular colors by far. However pink bomber jackets appear to be surging in popularity. Kanye predicted it, I mean take a look back at his Yeezy seasons 1-3 he was definitely trying to tell us something and according to Google we listened lol.

Results also point to the fact that athleisure (comfortable sportswear) is a major trend as well. Google notes a growing inclination towards utilitarian clothing, as searches for “windbreaker jacket” and “waterproof jacket” grew by over 100% and over 300% respectively.

#Prayers! Rapper T-Pain’s (@TPAIN) Neice Was Fatally Stabbed!

We are currently sending prayers up for T-Pain and his family, as one of his neices, Javona Glover, has been fatally stabbed! The event took place just a few hours ago; and we learned of it after the rapper posted the news on social media asking for the public’s help in locating her murderer.

Javona Glover, 23, was killed in a stabbing at Walgreens

Tallahassee Police have issued an arrest warrant for Tavon Q. Jackson in the stabbing death of Javona Glover.

Glover was killed Tuesday at the Walgreens drugstore on Ocala Road where she worked.  After the attack, Jackson, 25, fled the scene. Police released a photo of Jackson inside the store on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old Glover was stabbed early Tuesday morning Tallahassee Police say. When officers arrived around 10:15 a.m., they found her, the mother of a 2-year-old, bleeding heavily.

Jackson’s whereabouts are unknown.

Glover is a niece of rapper T-Pain, and he’s asking for help to find her killer.

Walgreens confirmed Glover worked at the West Tallahassee store.

“We extend our deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of our team member. The store is temporarily closed while police conduct their investigation and we refer you to police for any additional information,” the company said in a statement.

Glover died of her injuries before she could be transported to a hospital.

The Grammy Award-winning T-Pain, whose real name is Faheem Rasheed Najm, was born in Tallahassee. His stage name stands for “Tallahassee Pain.”

Police standoffs and murders? August 30, 2016 has truly been one helluva day! We hope they catch Javona’s murderer and throw him under the prison, if he does not catch an execution!
