What is up with celebrities preparing for the Apocalypse?
Geez, the amount of heat some of these people pack is out of control. Take John Popper of the band Blues Traveler, for one. Popper was pulled over for speeding and was charged with going 111 mph (I don't care what the posted limit is, that is CLEARLY too fast) and marijuana posession (yawn; another celebrity smoking pot). However, upon further searching the car, police uncovered what one can safely call an arsenal.
Officers found multiple hidden compartments in Popper's vehicle -- which held a total of 14 weapons, including four rifles (one of which was a 50 caliber), nine handguns and a switchblade knife.Amazingly, Popper's excuse is a lot better than the excuse given by Gwen Stefani for the reason she carries a gun.
According to the Washington State Patrol (WSP), Popper told troopers that he had installed these items in his vehicle because (in the event of a natural disaster) he didn't want to be left behind.
Popper was arrested along with a friend, Brian Gourgeois, who was driving Popper's car at the time. They will both be charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. The WSP also says that DEA agents seized Popper's vehicle, and he could face federal charges of possessing a vehicle with hidden compartments.
Gwen Stefani carries a gun to keep other women away from her husband.Why do I have the distict feeling that if I said the same thing to a member of the press that I would be carried away and placed on 24 hour supervision?
The 'Wind It Up' singer is paranoid hoards of women want to bed her handsome rocker spouse Gavin Rossdale, so she has a drastic method of scaring them off.
She quipped to Bust magazine: "Gavin is always going to be a chick magnet. So I always have to have a gun in my pocket, just in case!"
