Soulja Boy was arrested for marijuana possession early Tuesday morning during a routine traffic stop in Temple, Georgia. Soulja Boy was with four other men at the time, three bodyguards and a driver. According to reports, the vehicle was pulled over because a light was out, and the cops searched it after smelling a "strong odor" of marijuana. That's when they discovered a "substantial amount" of pot, guns, cash, and a puppy. The puppy was not charged as an accomplice and was released to a family member. There's no word on the puppy's name or breed. All five men were hit with three felony charges: Possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Some of the weed and one of the guns was supposedly found in a suitcase, which belonged to Soulja Boy. TMZ claims there was "roughly $70,000 worth of cash and drugs in the car" but the authorities have disputed that, although they wouldn't reveal the exact amount.

Believe it or not, President Obama's daughters, 10-year-old Sasha and 13-year-old Malia watch "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" on Sunday nights. But Michelle says she only lets them on the condition that they learn the right lessons from it. "I'm more concerned with how they take it in, what did you learn when you watched that. And if they're learning the right lessons, like, that was crazy, then I'm like, okay." We should probably note that the president himself isn't a fan.

She said, "It's just this season is going so well for me and J.R. (Martinez, her celebrity dance partner) and I want to be able to concentrate 100% here.
