Girlicious singer arrested for cocaine possession, will miss Toronto music festival

Girlicious singer Natalie Mejia will miss her Chum Fanfest performance tonight, which is bound to disappoint her Toronto fans and whoever was planning to purchase cocaine from her. According to Glendale News Press, the 21-year-old hot mess was picked up in Glendale, California, on Tuesday, when police pulled over a car she was riding in and found 12 bags of cocaine in her Gucci purse. (Apparently, whenever reporting on celebrities, brand names are important.)

She and the fellow who was driving the car were arrested and charged with possession with intent to sell. For her part, Mejia claims she has no idea how the cocaine got into her purse. We just wish Girlicious was still relevant enough to merit a recognizable reference to one of their songs.
