Its been four days now since the Baltimore Ravens terminated Ray Rice's contract on account of domestic violence charges and the news is still talking about it. Did the NFL go too easy on Rice following the incriminating video's leak? Is the league too lax on criminal offenders? These were the big questions leading up to Rice's dismissal.

Eminem & Rihanna Do The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge On Stage In Detroit
Dr. Dre had one of the more memorable ice bucket challenges we've seen thus far, and the hip hop mogul decided to pass the task on to Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, and Eminem. We saw K.Dot's video earlier in the week, and now Eminem has taken the plunge-- on stage at The Monster Tour no less.
