Is Beyoncé about to give birth?

She concealed her pregnancy for months before revealing her baby bump at the MTV Music Awards in August. But now Beyoncé is said to be moments away from giving birth to her first child. And the appearance of the star's mother Tina, 57, sister Solange, 25, and nephew Julez in the city has certainly added weight to the report. Nurses at New York's St Luke's Roosevelt hospital have allegedly been told to prepare the labour suite for the arrival of a celebrity VIP. And designer Tina and sister Solange, were spotted leaving vintage store Stella Dallas in New York City yesterday, which means they are clearly keen to be on hand should the star go into labour. The singer lives in a multi-million pound penthouse apartment in the city with rapper husband Jay Z. It is thought the 30-year-old singer and husband Jay Z could be welcoming a child as early as today according to MediaTakeOut.com. The website reports that the half the floor of the hospital's Labor and Delivery Suite has been booked by the singer, although the hospital has not confirmed the claims. Beyoncé is thought to have reached the nine month mark in her pregnancy. And in a clip from her Live at Roseland DVD she said: 'Hello! It's September 23rd ... Right now I'm actually shooting the video for 'Countdown' and I'm six months pregnant, pretending that my stomach is flat in body suits.' A spokesperson for the singer was unavailable for comment earlier today. Beyoncé's baby may not have been born just yet but it has been the source of speculation for months. In October the singer sparked rumours that she was wearing a prosthetic belly after her stomach appeared to collapse as she sat down during a live TV appearance in Australia. Earlier this month the Love On Top singer labelled the reports 'ridiculous', and told Katie Couric that she didn't let the rumours effect her.

English: This is an example of the angst cause...


The US media is reporting another case of Jamaican lottery scammers targeting an unsuspecting elderly victim. A resident of Renton in Washington has been swindled out of more than US$16,000 after receiving a telephone call from Jamaica informing her that she had won the lottery. The woman paid over the money during a four month period. She said a man first called in July claiming that he was from an organization known as "Winners International" and that the widow had won a US$2.5 million lottery. After dozens of phone calls and at least 31 wire transfers, the woman sent more than US$16,000 from her bank accounts and her late husband's retirement plan. She even sold jewelry in order to meet the demands of the Jamaican scammers. The woman is now broke.

 There are reports out of the US that several movie-goers have fallen sick while watching the 
latest instalment of the vampire themed romance "Twilight Breaking Dawn". According to several reports, a graphic birthing scene has caused some members of the audience to suffer from seizures and black outs. In Sacramento, a man told CBS13 he began to have a seizure during the scene and his wife described his behaviour as "convulsing, snorting, trying to breathe". A man in Utah had the same thing happen to him, telling ABC-4, "I didn't really remember what happened. After that I think I blacked out. According to [my wife], I was shaking and mumbling different noises". Photosensitive epilepsy, which can be caused by flashing lights, is believed to be the cause.

They say no press is bad press, but Justin Bieber might have actually turned his baby daddy drama into good press. Bieber has been "staying positive" in the middle of the media frenzy, showing that he's more level-headed than most Hollywood superstars. Also, this whole thing has been great for promoting his upcoming Christmas album. On Tuesday, Justin appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman to talk about all this paternity nonsense. Oh, and don't forget, he has a new album. "It's pretty crazy. People make up false accusations. It's gonna happen, being in the spotlight," the seventeen year-old pop star told Letterman. Letterman said that he never believed the accusations, saying he "saw red" when he heard about them. "I could smell a weasel," Letterman told him. And Bieber agreed: "I can smell a weasel, too." Justin confirmed on the show that he did indeed take that DNA test to prove that he's not the father of Mariah Yeater's baby. Of course, Letterman just had to know how he gave up his DNA, and Bieber revealed that the doctors swabbed his mouth. Letterman joked: "Is there disrobing?" David Letterman needs a bonus for having to ask that question. Bieber replied: "No, no, I don't think so!" Bieber hasn't been slowing down. After his appearance on Letterman, he had a huge concert on the Today show, which involved special guest Usher. And after that, Justin appeared on The View. On the show, Whoopi Goldberg couldn't help but notice the hair growing on her guest's upper lip. Justin explained: "It's for Movember." Movember is a movement that happens each November, where men grow facial hair to raise awareness for men's health issues. According to the Movember website, the goal is to raise awareness to the cancers that affect men.

ATLANTA (AP) -- Filmmaker Tyler Perry is defending his controversial decision to cast reality television star Kim Kardashian in an upcoming film about marriage. Perry announced that Kardashian will have a role in "The Marriage Counselor" shortly before she ended her 72-day marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries, creating a buzz on social media sites. Perry says he wanted a younger cast, which Kardashian rounds out, to help attract younger viewers. In a statement on his website, Perry says he thinks "it would be a very responsible of her to be a part of this film" and good for young people who see her as a role model to "see her in a film that is about what happens in life when you make the wrong choices." Perry asked for his fans' understanding.

US authorities find major drug tunnel in San Diego

No Comments
SAN DIEGO (AP) -- An estimated 17 tons of marijuana were seized in the discovery of a cross-border tunnel that authorities said Wednesday was one of the most significant secret drug smuggling passages ever found on the U.S.-Mexico border. The tunnel discovered Tuesday stretched about 400 yards (400 meters) and linked warehouses in San Diego and Tijuana, authorities said. U.S. authorities seized about nine tons of marijuana inside a truck and at the warehouse in San Diego's Otay Mesa area, said Derek Benner, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement special agent in charge of investigations in San Diego. Mexican authorities recovered about eight tons south of the border. Authorities spoke at a news conference near packages of seized dope festooned with labels of Captain America, Sprite and Bud Light. The markings are codes to identify the owners. Photos taken by Mexican authorities show an entry blocked by bundles that were likely stuffed with marijuana, said Paul Beeson, chief of the Border Patrol's San Diego sector. Tunnel walls were lined with wood supports. The passage was equipped with lighting and ventilation systems. The tunnel was about four feet high and three feet wide. It dropped about 20 feet on the U.S. side. Two men allegedly seen leaving the warehouse in a truck packed with about three tons of pot were pulled over Tuesday on a highway in suburban La Mesa and arrested. A California Highway Patrol officer was overwhelmed by the smell, according to a federal complaint. Cesar Beltran and Ruben Gomez each face a maximum penalty of life in prison if convicted of conspiracy to distribute marijuana, said Alana Robinson, chief of the U.S. attorney's narcotics enforcement section in San Diego. They were scheduled to be arraigned Thursday. Cross-border tunnels have proliferated in recent years, but the latest find is one of the more significant, based on the amount of drugs seized.

Baby (Justin Bieber song)


So one of two things happened: The real father came back to get his dang ol'ed baby, or she's scared Beliebers really are going to kill her. Mariah Yeater, the woman who held steadfast by her claims that Justin Bieber was the father of her child, dismissed her paternity lawsuit against the singer. Somehow, the suit was dismissed quietly under the radar last week. Yeater's lawyers, Lance Rogers and Matt Pare, have bailed on her. Yes, they both withdrew from the case. I'm guessing Bieber's lawyers asked to use Yeater's crazy Facebook photo as evidence in his defense, and her lawyers said, "we're f-cked." Justin Bieber planned to take a DNA test when he returned to the U.S.

In an interview with Australia's version of 60 minutes, 47-year-old Brad Pitt says he wants to retire at age 50. For someone who only seems to get better looking with age, this might be the worst news I've heard all morning. He tells 60 minutes that he's only got a few years left and he wants to go into the boring, non-attractive side of the business called "producing," which is what all actors do when they get too much money and want to seem important.

Joe Frazier: The peoples' champ

Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier, Philadelphia, PA...



(National Review) "Don't you know I'm God?" taunted Muhammad Ali, in the first of the epic trilogy of heavyweight prizefights with Joe Frazier that defined the early 1970s. Ali even took to accompanying each word -- Don't -- you -- know -- I'm -- God? -- with a swing of his fists, unleashing another flurry of his lightning-fast punches. Frazier, undaunted, singularly unaffected by Ali's sophomoric doggerel and sophisticated psy-ops, kept boring in on his opponent, a steady, bobbing, weaving machine, and spat back through his bloodied mouthpiece: "Well, God, you gonna get whupped tonight!" And very near the end of that first encounter between them, on March 8, 1971 -- the Madison Square Garden spectacular between two undefeated heavyweight champions, billed, without hyperbole, as the Fight of the Century -- Frazier made good on his promise. It was 26 seconds into the 15th round. With his signature roundhouse left hook -- the 30th he'd landed, the final explosion in a breathtaking night of fireworks -- Frazier connected with Ali's right jaw, snapping his head back and dropping The Greatest to the canvas. Bedlam at the Garden! Ali was up quickly, but with that one punch, "Smokin' Joe" entered the ranks of the immortal, one of only two professional fighters ever to put Ali down. The pride of Philadelphia had answered definitively, at least for one night, the questions that haunted boxing, and America at large, at the close of the fiery Sixties. Who would triumph: the beautiful dancer and satirical poet, or the grunting, uneducated working man? Was history on the side of anti-establishment rebels and countercultural heroes, or unalloyed toughness and Richard Nixon's silent majority? At last, America had an answer: The uglier man, the less captivating figure, the African American who was darker and came from more impoverished southern origins, but whom Ali derided, inexplicably and unforgivably, as the Uncle Tom between them, the traitor to his people; yes, for one night, this man, Joe Frazier, would prevail. "What a man!" marveled screen legend Burt Lancaster, of Frazier, in his ringside color commentary. For those of a different mindset, the great event proved altogether depressing. "A very painful experience in every way," Hunter S. Thompson lamented in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, "a proper end to the Sixties . . . [with] Cassius/Ali belted incredibly off his pedestal by a human hamburger, a man on the verge of death. Joe Frazier, like Nixon, had finally prevailed for reasons that people like me refused to understand -- at least not out loud."

NEW YORK (AP) -- Kim Kardashian is "heartbroken" over her decision to divorce professional basketball player Kris Humphries after only two months of marriage, but life will go on, her mother says. "Just because somebody is getting a divorce doesn't mean life is over," mom Kris Jenner said. "She's not the first person to get a divorce, and she won't be the last, no matter what the length of the marriage." Jenner, who divorced Kardashian's father, O.J. Simpson's attorney Robert Kardashian, in the early 1990s and is married to former Olympic decathlon gold medalist Bruce Jenner, said reports her reality TV star daughter's relationship was made for TV are false. "That would be insulting to this wonderful viewership that has followed us from Day 1," she said. "I don't think any of us are in that kind of situation where we have to go out and ... create opportunities to make more money. I think we are just fine." She also said the family members won't stop sharing their lives with the public. "(The breakup) doesn't mean that the rest of us are going to change our personalities in any way and, you know, completely turn into different people," she said Thursday. "We're going to carry on and hopefully be much stronger as human beings and as a family." After Kardashian, 31, filed for divorce last week, citing irreconcilable differences, she left for a business trip to Australia with her sister Khloe Kardashian.

First Photos of Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's Twins

No Comments
Six months after Mariah Carey gave birth, we're finally getting the first glimpse of her adorable twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
Mariah and Nick Cannon opened up their New York home to Barbara Walters for a special 20/20 interview on Friday night. Mariah talked about her super difficult pregnancy and how she does not want to have more kids.
"I don't think I understood the enormity or the magnitude of what it really does to your body," she explained. "It's not just, oh you don't look pretty and you have a bump."
But difficult pregnancy aside, they're both super proud parents. "My family gives me everything," Cannon gushed. "It's just love," Carey said. "It's a beautiful place to be."
Nick Cannon spoke to Hollyscoop this week at KISS FM's JoJo Jam Tour on Thursday about how his life has changed since becoming a father. "I mean, [Mariah and I] are connected for life for real now, regardless of whatever goes on."
So what made the parents so long to show off their new brood? "I think it was a privacy thing. I don't really consider it showing them off to the world, that's not really what it was about. It was a timing thing to it," Nick told Hollyscoop.
He continued, "My wife has a wonderful relationship with Barbara Walters. It felt like if we were going to do anything we didn't want to selling our pictures and stuff like that. So you might as well invite someone into our home that we are comfortable with to do an interview and hopefully that would be that."
When Nick and Mariah got married after just a month of dating, people assumed it was just a publicity stunt, but three years later they're still going strong.
"I never believe that anybody really likes me," Mariah said after Nick Cannon showed off his ginormous "Mariah" tattoo on his back. "I always think it's some kind of joke or something." Geez, insecure much? Sometimes it's hard to believe someone as beautiful and talented as Mariah would be so insecure, but it just goes to show you, celebs, they're just like us.
"Initially I was afraid of the concept of marriage [again]," she said. "But this is a different situation and a different time in my life." Now, Mariah insists, "No one will steal my spirit."

The main suspect in the murder of the daughter of reggae singer Thriller U is to be charged.
Police in Miramar, Florida say Kevin Lavon Pratt is to be charged with three counts of first-degree murder and one of attempted murder for the attack that left three people dead.
It was reported that on August 16, 2009, Thriller U's wife Camille Hamilton and their daughter Nekkita were visiting a friend and her son when Mr. Pratt and others barged into the house and shot all four persons. 
Mrs. Hamilton was the only survivor but was left partially mute and blind.
After identifying Pratt in a lineup at the North Florida prison, Mrs. Hamilton told reporters that she asked if she could speak to him in person and ask him why he committed the act.
Police reported that "Pratt just stared at Camille and did not say a word".
Pratt will be transported to Broward County to await trial.

We live in a Kardashian nation, but President Barack Obama isn't exactly a fan of reality TV's royal family!
First Lady Michelle Obama tells iVillage that her hubby, 50, doesn't like Sasha, 10, and Malia, 13, keeping up with Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian's antics on the boob tube.
Michelle, 47, says that like most parents, she and Barack regulate how much TV their daughters watch and what they're allowed to see. "Barack really thinks some of the Kardashians -- when they watch that stuff -- he doesn't like that as much," she told iVillage.
"But I sort of feel like if we're talking about it, and I'm more concerned with how they take it in -- what did you learn when you watched that," Michelle explained. "And if they're learning the right lessons, like, that was crazy, then I'm like, okay."
While the Kardashian family is known for their big spending (Kim purchased a $325,000 Ferrari earlier this month), their upbringing wasn't entirely different from Sasha and Malia's.
Michelle tells iVillage she doesn't want her girls raised as "little princesses."
"They have to make their own beds, to clean up their rooms," she says. "Sasha has started doing the laundry. Malia was supposed to be doing it but [Sasha] is really into laundry."
Khloe, 27, told Babycenter last month about her "Cinderella" upbringing. "When I turned twelve, my mom's housekeeper was not allowed to enter my room," she said. Kris Jenner told her at the time: "You're twelve now. You do all your own laundry. You make your bed."
Khloe said when Kendall and Kylie Jenner were born, "I had to do all the dishes and I cooked for them. But honestly now, I'm a great cook and I'm OCD clean and I like that my parents did that."

Or for you conspiracy theorists out there, her 'alleged' pregnancy. In four months, Tina Knowles will become a grandma for the second time (Beyonce's sister, Solange, has a seven year-old son). Beyonce and Jay-Z will welcome their child into the world in February.
Everyone is so excited about Beyonce's pregnancy, this is no longer her child. At this point, it's the world's. And we want to know details about our baby. Specifically, is it a girl or a boy?
 "They know what they're having," Tina tells Life and Style magazine. "But I'm not telling!"
Okay, Tina, you're not going to reveal the gender. So what will you reveal? Let's hear some big news about the most anticipated pregnancy of the decade!
 "She's craving waffles."
Oh, okay. Thanks.
 "The normal," Tina says. "Just wanting to eat!"
She also revealed that her daughter had morning sickness. "She went through it, but she's got past it now."
And like the rest of the world, Tina thinks her daughter is going to be an amazing mother.
 "She's going to be an awesome mom. I think it will slow her down somewhat, but I think she'll be the same great person she's been."
And Tina thinks Jay-Z will be just as great. "I think he's going to be awesome. They are very, very happy and just glowing. It's great to see."
Hollyscoop talked to ex-Destiny's Child Kelly Rowland, who agreed that Beyonce is going to wear motherhood well.
"I'm not pregnant but she seems to be fine and she seems happy and excited about the pregnancy," Rowland told us.
She added: "I know she'll be a wonderful mom." And even though she has only several months before a human being is ripped from her loins, Beyonce says she's not nervous about the pregnancy.
 "It's going really well, I am so happy with everything right now. I am not nervous because I know it's happening at the right time. I felt I got married at the right time for me, and now we are having the baby at the right time. I feel like we didn't rush anything, and now we are being blessed with everything naturally."
The singer also expressed her happiness over marrying her "best friend."
 "I am so blessed to have him as my husband. We have been together since I was 20, and he is my rock during everything."

Famous women who have been cheated on

Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon


If relationships aren't hard enough, an overactive libido can make them even harder, no pun intended. While both men and women are obviously capable of cheating, statistically, 22% of men admitted 
Uma Thurman

Uma Therman

to having sex outside of their marriage, while only 14% of women admitted to it. So let's be real, the dong is a sensitive organ.
When they're cheated on, some women choose to forgive the guy, some choose to forget about him. But almost all of them ask, "what's wrong with me?" The answer is, nothing. The penis wants what the penis wants and it usually wants everything. And just to prove that theory, here are some famous women who have been cheated on, despite having it all.
Sienna Miller: She was in a high profile relationship with Jude Law when news broke that the Brit was cheating with the nanny. Law admitted to it, and Sienna chose to forgive, but eventually their relationship crumbled. Men love cheating with nannies. You can't even hire an unattractive one and expect nothing to happen. She'll pull a Mildred Baena on your ass.
Eva Longoria: After rumors surfaced that Mr. Bean lookalike, Tony Parker, cheated on Eva, the two soon filed for divorce. Turns out the basketball player was cheating on a former teammates wife. Double douche.
Sandra Bullock: First of all, Sandra shouldn't have even been with Jesse James. She's an Oscar-winner, and he looks like he perpetually reeks of bacon. She's an A-list actress and he looks like an extra from Prison Break. She's one of the classiest--okay, you get the idea. James was rumored to have cheated on Sandra with a tatted up Kat Von D lookalike. Months later, he went from lookalike to the real thing. Now Jesse and Kat are on the outs, for like the third time this year. Actually, once this story is actually posted, they'll probably have gotten back together.
Reese Witherspoon: They're friends now, but Reese Witherspoon's marriage to Ryan Phillippe ended after he cheated on her with his co-star Abbie Cornish.
Elizabeth Hurley: This was the biggest WTF moment of 1995. Hugh Grant was caught soliciting Hollywood prostitute Divine Brown while he was dating longtime girlfriend Elizabeth Hurley. And I know her name says otherwise, but she really wasn't all that divine. Elizabeth and Hugh stuck it out for a while, but a couple years later, it ended.
Halle Berry: Halle's ex-husband, Eric Benet, had a sex addiction. So it makes sense that he would try to control it by dating the hottest woman in Hollywood. But that still wasn't enough for the guy. He cheated, and Halle ditched him.
Uma Thurman: Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke were the coolest couple of 1998. Until Ethan had an affair with their kid's nanny. I'm serious about the nanny thing. Raise your own kids, people!
Christie Brinkley: Not even being a supermodel gets you a "get out of cheating free" card. Christie Brinkley's ex, Pete Cook, met an 18 year-old who worked in a toy store. He was later caught in the act when a sex tape of the two surfaced. Talk about wanting to get caught.
Jennifer Aniston: We couldn't get through this list without mentioning the legendary split between Brad & Jen. While Brangelina were dry humping onscreen in Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Jen was at home, thinking he was you know, acting. That thing he does for a living. Turns out, Brad fell for Angelina and the rest his history.

On Sunday night, he made light of the incident in a statement released exclusively to Yahoo! Music: "The show must go on," he said about his reaction to the mishap.
"I work hard and let it all hang out. ... Lol."
His ripped, baggy pants gave a new meaning to the phrase "hang loose."

Apple's Steve Jobs dead at 56

Steve Jobs for Fortune magazine



Steve Jobs, the Apple co-founder who used digital technology to resurrect animated feature films, reshape the music industry and shake up film and television distribution models, died Wednesday. He was 56.
Jobs, a computer genius who, with fellow college dropout Steve Wozniak, built the first Apple computers from the Jobs' family garage, died of complications from pancreatic cancer.
A Buddhist and vegetarian who once handed out bottles of carrot juice to trick-or-treaters, Jobs was diagnosed with the disease in 2004 when he disclosed that doctors had removed a cancerous tumor from his pancreas.
Jobs and Wozniak introduced the Apple II computer in 1977 and took their company public in 1980, an event that made Jobs a multimillionaire able to set his sights on conquering the entertainment industry. He succeeded by turning Pixar into what is arguably the most consistent film studio in history and by becoming the largest shareholder of Disney, the industry's most iconic company.
Born in San Francisco on Feb. 24, 1955, to an unmarried couple, Jobs was adopted by Clara and Paul Jobs. As early as high school, Jobs was plotting a course that included the creation of world-changing products leading to personal fame and fortune. Along the way, he feuded with some of the most powerful men in the fields of technology and entertainment, including Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, longtime Disney CEO Michael Eisner and even The Beatles

Lindsay Lohan at Calvin Klein Spring 2007 Fash...

At V magazine's party at the Boom Boom room, last night. Is Lindsay Lohan responsible for this hawt mess?
Rumors are starting to fly that wild child Lindsay Lohan may be responsible for putting an abrupt end to V magazine's bash at the Standard Hotel's Boom Boom room last night after an altercation with a fellow reveler turned very ugly. Apparently Lindsay Lohan was seen earlier that evening throwing drinks at one V mag photographer:
The photog  tweeted about the altercation, writing: "Wow. Lindsay Lohan is as trashy as they always say. She threw drinks and glasses to me as we tried to take a shot for @vmagazine."
According to one of our sources it turns out that more than throwing glasses at photographers was going on. Apparently one young female reveler had an artery on her arm erupt after a jagged glass hit her arm, courtesy of a belligerent Ms Lohan.
At this juncture no one quite knows if Lilo is to blame, but one thing's for sure the cops and emergency units came and had a very serious issue of a profusely bleeding guest. Judging from the pictures below, the cut looked fairly nasty (the carpet doesn't look sweet either does it?).
So we're left to wonder did America's collective hawt mess leave another nasty mark in her wake or is this just an opportunistic rumor flying around? Let's see Lilo's publicists explain this one....

Andy Whitfield the Latimes reports has succumbed to his battle with non-Hodgkin Lymphoma in Sydney, Australia.

eventually took his life.
Known for playing an invincible hero, his death is on some level more heartfelt and ironic given his on screen persona. But that perhaps is the pathos of being an entertainer, that the roles we excel in on the big screen are sometimes not the roles we can become as much as we will it in reality, but then again such things as cancer know no rhyme or reason, which is why Andy Whitfield's death is perhaps even more startling given the legacy and aura that he commanded on screen and of course off screen, and perhaps even more so now....
 "We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend and colleague, Andy Whitfield," said Starz President and CEO Chris Albrecht in a statement.  "We were fortunate to have worked with Andy in 'Spartacus' and came to know that the man who played a champion on-screen was also a champion in his own life.  Andy was an inspiration to all of us as he faced this very personal battle with courage, strength and grace.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.  He will live on in the hearts of his family, friends and fans."

Barons Plaza to be demolished

The Barons Plaza on Constant Spring Road in St Andrew, which houses more than 37 stores, is to be demolished.
Mayor of Kingston, Desmond McKenzie, says the owners of the building have committed several violations.
The Mayor, who made the announcement at a KSAC meeting, on Tuesday said the council exhausted all channels and there will be no more discussions with the owners of the plaza.
Meanwhile, the owner of Barons Plaza, Baron Stephens, said the only form of communication from the KSAC was a stop order. The order was served for the stoppage of work on a section of the structure.
 "There was no correspondence from the KSAC as it relates to  any other aspect of the structure.  So this comes as a surprise and if the court process was pursued, there is no documentation  our side and if the demolition order was granted there is no documents from our  side either" said Mr. Stephens.
The Mayor did not say when the demolition exercise will begin.

Report: Lady Gaga Has a New Boyfriend

Webmin
No Comments
And no, it's not Jo Calderone. Though they would actually look really cute together.
Lady Gaga has reportedly been dating actor Taylor Kinney of The Vampire Diaries fame. Kinney appears in Gaga's new music video You and I.
The couple reportedly met while shooting the video, and have since been spotted together. An eyewitness saw them at a California beachside bar this week. The source told RadarOnline.com:
"It was just casual at first, but things are getting pretty hot and heavy."
If I'm going to take anything away from this, it's that people do actually use the phrase "hot and heavy."
"I couldn't tell it was her at first. It just looked like some hot couple making out, but then I realized it was Lady Gaga! Everyone went nuts! She was so sweet too - she even signed some autographs."
I change my mind about Lady Gaga about ten times in one week. She gets all pretentious and makes me want to vomit, and then I hear about incredibly normal stuff like this, and I'm like, "okay, she cool." Plus, at least she treats her fans right and doesn't loathe hydrangeas.
Gaga split from her on/off boyfriend Luc Carl for the second time earlier this year. She has said that she gets emotional when she sings You and I because it stirs up feelings and memories from the couple's relationship. Gaga adds:
"There is not one song on any of my records that wasn't written by me, and I think when you write your own music you find ways to reinvent [the songs] emotionally through yourself and performance so that they are different every night and that song you know, sometimes it's about the guys and sometimes it's about the fans."
Gaga and Carl originally started dating in 2005, but split when she rose to superstardom. They began dating again in 2010, and Gaga said they were in a "proper monogamous relationship." Gaga said of her experience with Carl:
"I've really never loved anyone like I loved him. Or like I love him. That relationship really shaped me. I sort of resolved that if you can't have the guy of your dreams, there are other ways to give love."
Then they split again earlier this summer.
The day after Gaga and her new dude were spotted, they were walking hand in hand. Holding hands the next day? Definitely relationship behavior. Another source said: "Her hair was a little messy. It definitely seemed like a 'morning after' situation."

Lady Gaga says she's bankrupt

Lady GaGa


Earlier this month Forbes magazine named Lady Gaga the most powerful celebrity
in the world claiming she's made over $90 million dollars in the last year.

She beat out Oprah in terms of power and has an estimated net worth of over $125
million. So why is she pretending to be broke?

Gaga claims she "went bankrupt" during her 'Monster Ball' tour--the same one that
grossed over $90 million--because of production costs.

The elaborate stage costumes and backup dancers cost so much, she claims she
spent more than she made. It's a little hard to spend $90 mil, but sure Gaga,
whatever you say.

She told the Financial Times newspaper: "I put everything in the show, and I
actually went bankrupt after the first extension of the 'Monster Ball'. And it
was funny because I didn't know! And I remember I called everybody and said,
'Why is everyone saying I have no money? This is ridiculous, I have five number
one singles' - and they said, 'Well, you're $3 million in debt.' "

And of course in true Gaga style, she hasn't curbed her spending one bit. And if
anyone is getting spoiled, it's her parents.

She said: "The only big things I've purchased are my dad's heart valve and a
Rolls-Royce for my parents, for their anniversary. And that was only because my
dad had a Lady Gaga license plate on our old car and it was making me crazy
because he was getting followed everywhere, so I bought him a new car."

Rapper Sean Kingston earned his first number-o...

Sean Kingston

MIAMI - Hip-hop singer Sean Kingston has been stabilized and moved to the
intensive care unit at a hospital after crashing his watercraft into a Miami
Beach bridge, his publicist said Monday.
The publicist, Joseph Carozza, said Kingston's family is grateful for everyone's
prayers and support.
Kingston and a female passenger were injured when the watercraft hit the Palm
Island Bridge around 6 p.m. Sunday, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission spokesman Jorge Pino said.
The Miami Herald reports that a passing boater saw the accident and took the two
on board his vessel.
Both were hospitalized early Monday at Ryder Trauma Center, but Pino said he
didn't know their conditions.
Authorities are investigating the crash, and "nothing at this point would
indicate that alcohol played a role," Pino said.
Kingston rose to fame with his 2007 hit "Beautiful Girls" and was also featured
on songs by artists including Justin Bieber. His self-titled debut album sold
over 1 million copies worldwide.
On Twitter, Bieber posted a message of support for Kingston.
"Got my friend Sean Kingston in my prayers tonight," Bieber tweeted early
Monday. "A true friend and big bro. Please keep him in your prayers tonight as
well."
A number of hip-hop musicians were in Miami Beach over the weekend for Urban
Beach Week.
In a 2007 interview with The Associated Press, Kingston described his music as a
fusion of reggae, pop, rap and R&B.
"It's Sean Kingston genre. I have my own genre," Kingston told the AP at the
time. "No disrespect to no artist or dudes out there. I feel like I am my own
person. I am doing my own thing."
His music has been unique among hip-hop offerings, as Kingston refused to use
profanity.
"To put it in my music, that's not the message I am trying to send out," he said
in the 2007 interview. "That's not the type of artist I am trying to be."

Wrestling star Randy Savage died today in a car accident in Tampa, Florida.
The 58-year-old, known as Macho Man, is understood to have suffered a heart
attack at the wheel of his vehicle.

He lost control of the car and hit a tree around 10am this morning, Savage's
brother, Lanny Poffo, told TMZ.
Savage began his WWF career in 1985 and became famous for his catchphrase 'Ooh
yeah!'
He is also well known for his deep, raspy voice and flashy attire, typically
including sunglasses, a bandana or head band, flashy robes, and a cowboy hat.
Savage is also well known for his long-time endorsement of Slim Jim beef jerky,
as he starred in many colourful TV commercials to promote the product.
A rep for Slim Jim told TMZ; 'We're saddened by the loss. Randy was a beloved
ambassador for the Slim Jim brand for many years and will be greatly missed.
'Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this time'.
Fellow pro wrestler Hulk Hogan wrote on his Twitter page: 'I'm completely
devastated, after over 10 years of not talking with Randy, we've finally started
to talk and communicate.
'He had so much life in his eyes & in his spirit, I just pray that he's happy
and in a better place and we miss him.

NYC signing September 1,2009 Nintendo Store - NYC

Justin Beiber


Just when you thought Justin Beiber's influence on his teenage fans could not
get any bigger, he's now deciding what they should smell like.
The 17-year-old is launching a fruity floral scent for girls next month.
And he is cheekily calling it Someday, offering a glimmer of hope to his fans -
who call themselves Beliebers - that one day he might be all theirs.
'Let's be real, the way a girl smells is very important to a guy!'  Bieber told
WWD.

'I have such a deep connection with my fans, so creating a fragrance that I
personally love is another way I can bring them closer to my world.'
If that sounds a little creepy, there is a huge silver lining to the
endorsement.

Proceeds from sales of the perfume, which is expected to raise millions, will
all go to the singer's favourite charities including Pencils of Promise and the
Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Someday will sell for $35 or $55 depending on the size of the bottle, and the
fringe fanatic will also be launching a hair mist version of the scent.
Yes, world domination is clearly just weeks away.

Arnold and Maria Shiver

Maria Shriver confronted her husband's mistress over suspicions she was
secretly raising his love child, it has been claimed today.
The mother of four, 55, is said to have asked her family's housekeeper, Mildred
Baena, 50, if her son was fathered by Arnold Schwarzenegger.
During the dramatic showdown, Baena broke down and confessed, according to
America's Radar Online.
The Terminator star only came clean about the sordid affair after Shriver told
him she new the truth about his 13-year secret, insiders say.

'Maria has suspected this for a long time and she asked the housekeeper,' a
source told the website. 'The housekeeper admitted it.
'Maria then went to Arnold and he confessed.'
Insiders also claim Baena was not fired from her position with the family as
previously reported.
'Yes, her employment ended, but it ended without animosity,' the source added.
'She was upset with Arnold at the time and didn't know what to do, she thought
about going public, but it was a fleeting thought. Ultimately she didn't want to
hurt Arnold.'
TMZ reported that Arnold showered Mildred's family with money during her time in
the family's employ.
According to the website, the former Governor of California funded a lavish
party for the daughter of Mildred's sister Maria - who also worked for the
family.
Arnold and his family attended the Quinceanera - a traditional Latin 'coming of
age' party where he made a speech telling relatives that he wanted to 'take care
of' them as Mildred and Maria were so close to him for so many years.
Additionally, TMZ claims that Mildred was obsessed with former TV newswoman
Maria and wanted to 'be just like her.'
Sources claim that the housekeeper would wear the former NBC presenter's clothes
and jewellery and that after Maria left for work in the morning Mildred would
'climb into bed' with Arnold.
According to sources Mildred would go to Maria for advice on her love life and
sought advice from her employer during her pregnancy - which coincided with
Shriver's, it emerged yesterday.
Mildred Baena's son, believed to be the star's love child, was born on October
2, 1997, according to documents.

The actor and his wife Maria Shriver welcomed their second son, Christopher, on
September 27 that same year.
Baena and Shriver would have encountered one another daily while pregnant, with
Baena working in the family home but living elsewhere.

Schwarzenegger and Shriver have three other children together: Katherine, 21,
Christina, 19, and Patrick, 17.

Harold Camping in 2008


SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The U.S. evangelical Christian broadcaster predictingthat Judgment Day will come on Saturday says he expects to stay close to a TV or
radio to monitor the unfolding apocalypse.
Harold Camping, 89, previously made a failed prediction that Jesus Christ would
return to Earth in 1994.
The head of the Christian radio network Family Stations Inc says that he is sure
an earthquake will shake the Earth on May 21, sweeping true believers to heaven
and leaving others behind to be engulfed in the world's destruction over a few
months.
"We know without any shadow of a doubt it is going to happen," Camping told
Reuters.
The end of the world!

Image by Newbirth35 via Flickr

His Family Radio has 66 U.S. stations and broadcasts in more than 30 languages
through international affiliates.
His supporters have posted about 2,200 billboards around the United States about
the coming apocalypse, and dozens of followers have driven across the country to
spread the news.
Camping, a civil engineer who once ran his own construction business, plans to
spend May 21 with his wife in Alameda, in northern California, and watch the
doomsday unfold.
"I'll probably try to be very near a TV or a radio or something," he said. "I'll
be interested in what's happening on the other side of the world as this
begins."
Like his last prediction, Camping's doomsday date is based on his reading of the
Bible and a timeline dating back to ancient events including the Biblical flood
survived by Noah.
'IT MAKES US LOOK WORSE'
Camping's pronouncement of a specific date for the apocalypse puts him outside
the Christian mainstream.
Jerry Jenkins, co-author with Tim LaHaye of the "Left Behind" series of
apocalyptic novels that have sold millions of copies worldwide, has a problem
with the prediction.
"As a believer, I'm already a kook compared to most people, so for someone to
choose a date and get everyone excited about a certain time, my problem is it
makes us look worse," said Jenkins, 61.
Stephen O'Leary, an expert in religious communication at the University of
Southern California, said the idea of rapture espoused by Camping and somemore
mainstream Christians first appeared in Christian teaching in the 19th century.
"It is very appealing to people," said Barbara Rossing, professor of the New

Testament at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago who describes a huge
apocalyptic "prophecy industry" including video games, board games and books.
Atheists are reacting to Camping's pronouncement in their own way.
In Tacoma, Washington, atheists have organized a party for Saturday night at an
arcade, under the banner "countdown to backpedaling," on the assumption that
Camping and Family Radio will change their story if Judgment Day does not come.
At least 100 people are expected at the party, said Sam Mulvey, 33, an organizer
of the event and the producer of a weekly atheist radio show in Tacoma.
"If the world still exists the next day, Family Radio is going to have to say
something and most of the time they backpedal, and that's what we're counting
down to," he said.

I'm in full support of Child Protective Services, but how they can allow a show
like Teen Mom to go on, but then harass Mariah Carey for a tabloid rumor is
beyond me.

Husband Nick Cannon told Piers Morgan in an interview, "It all started when a
nurse suggested to my wife that if you drink Guinness, the dark beer, the yeast
improves breastfeeding... I don't know if someone heard that, but then they were
saying my wife was drinking beer. People will do anything to try to conjure up a
story."

I've never given birth, but I imagine the last thing you'd want to drink after
going into labor is a Guinness. You'd probably rather have a shot of whiskey or
something less filling.

 "To even have to deal with that, my wife in the state that she's in, we're in
the hospital, to even have to think about someone possibly wanting to
investigate your children... it's sad at the end of the day," Cannon continued.

He also added that people have gone to ridiculous lengths to try to snap photos
of the babies.

 "There's been photographers actually in the hospital posing as different people
or people trying to get pictures of the kids," Cannon explained. "Which is
really sad when you think about people trying to make a buck off newborn
babies."

Is Lindsay Lohan become a Scientologist? It sure sounds like it. And believe it
or not, it may be the reason she got the role on the new Gotti flick shortly
after being fired.

John Travolta has reportedly told producers of the movie he would take her
"under his wing" and make sure that she stays committed to the movie if they
agree to rehire her. But he had a separate agreement with Lindsay.

An insider told the National Enquirer magazine: "Even though producers were
hesitant to hire Lindsay because of her troubled past. Travolta assured them
he'd take her under his wing.

"He feels confident he'll be able to keep her on the straight and narrow ... now

If it's true, it'll do wonders for Lindsay's career.

Finger rape case could head to CCJ

Jamaica's dispute with Barbados over the alleged ill-treatment of 20-year-old
Shanique Myrie could be headed to the Trinidad and Tobago-based Caribbean Court
of Justice (CCJ).
Dr Kenneth Baugh, minister of foreign affairs and foreign trade, has warned that
the CCJ could be asked to rule on the case if the two countries cannot work out
their differences.
This would be the first time that the Jamaican Government would be taking a case
to the CCJ since it was established in 2001.
With the Myrie dispute now at the level of government to government and a probe
under way in Bridgetown, the Jamaican authorities are demanding that the
Barbadian government does all that is necessary to establish the facts.
The dispute stems from claims by Myrie that she was subjected to verbal
harassment and a demeaning cavity search on arrival in Bridgetown.
Myrie said she was subjected to an invasive cavity search by a female
immigration officer when she arrived in Barbados on March 14.
No contraband was found on her during the search and she was denied clearance to
enter the country before being held in immigration detention and sent back to
Jamaica the following day.
The young woman has since retained the services of Hylton, who is the former
minister of foreign affairs and foreign trade.
She has also been invited to Barbados to identify the officer who conducted the
search.

Steamy: Jennifer Lopez cosies up to her hunky co-star on her new music video shoot in MexicoIt's been 12 years since she writhed on to our screens in the music video for
her first major single Love Don't Cost A Thing in 1999, instantly cementing

But Jennifer Lopez proved she's still got it in a steamy beach shoot with the

'The truth is I had a really great time,' he added. 'It was wonderful to see
that someone so huge could be so down to earth, in addition to being really
funny.'
Jennifer was recently named People magazine's World's Most Beautiful woman 2011,

And Rihanna has only known her 32-year-old half sister Kandy for a few years, meeting her when Rihanna was 15-years-old.  Kandy, who works as a pharmacy assistant in Rihanna's native Barbados, insists her daughters Brandy, 14, and 11-year-old Crystal, are very proud of their aunt.  She tells Britain's The Sun newspaper,

"My girls thought she was great fun and now, of course, they love the fact their auntie is one of the most famous singers in the world. They love her music and are always singing her songs at the top of their voices."

Ronald also reveals that Rihanna has a 30-year-old half-sister, Samantha, as well as a 27-year-old half-brother Jamie.

1302016751_miley-charlie-290.jpgMiley Cyrus and Charlie Sheen have been stroking each others' egos since Cyrus
rejoined Twitter on Sunday.

 "'Do not fear...the Sheenius is here!' I'm not gonna lie. I came back to twitter
for 2 reasons. My fans and to follow Charlie Sheen."
Really, that's gonna be your first tweet? A played out pun and a sad attempt at
pretending you still have fans? If she does have fans, her joining twitter
doesn't really make a difference, because I'm guessing most of them can't read
anyway.
Except for Sheen, maybe, who responded to Cyrus' tweet with another tweet. To
save you some time, I'll just post the dialogue.

SHEEN: Dear Miley, Welcome back to Twitter! Always felt you were epic! Now you
proved it! Thanks for the love.

CYRUS: I always felt the same about you! You have taught me everything I know
about WINNING. Duh!
 (later)
CYRUS: Honey sesame chicken, garlic rice & salad. There's only one thing missing
& that's Charlie Sheen!

Before she settles for Rebecca Black, Britney Spears is trying to find a less egomaniacal opening act since losing Enrique Iglesias.

Spears is hoping Nicki Minaj will open the tour, and lawyers for the two performers have been in talks, expecting to reach an agreement within the next couple of days.

Looks like Britney is hoping to find a newcomer who hasn't yet realized they're too good to open for her. Which is going to be hard to do.

If Nicki flakes, Britney could always try to get that little Asian girl that covered the Lady Gaga song. On second thought, she's probably too good. How about uh, the talking baby twins? Or Charlie bit my finger? Those guys might not mind opening for her.

Right now Nicki is on tour with Lil Wayne, but should be done by the end of April. Britney will begin her tour on June 17th.

Word on the street is that Reggae star Sean Paul is writing a biography, and he admits he dated Beyonce when she was taking a break from Jay-Z.

The insider explained, "Jay-Z was very jealous . . . to this day he has a problem with [Sean Paul]."

Could this be the reason why Jay-Z prevented Sean Paul from performing "Baby Boy" with Beyonce at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards. Jay-Z wanted to be the only performer to share the stage with Beyonce who was his girlfriend at the time.

Foxy Brown's fingernails have once again landed the singer in hot water -- this time, she was booted off a Royal Caribbean cruise because she flipped out after missing her at-sea manicure appointment ... TMZ has learned.
Passengers on the cruise tell TMZ, Foxy set up a nail appointment on the cruise ship last Monday -- a day after the cruise took off -- and showed up three hours late.

We're told the people at the salon couldn't accommodate her when she rolled around -- and Foxy went completely ballistic.

According to sources, security removed her from the salon and sent her back to her room -- where she remained under supervision until Wednesday ... when the ship dropped anchor somewhere in the Cayman Islands ... and authorities kicked her off.

We're told Foxy -- who performed on board the day before the incident -- was then escorted to an airport and flown home. Royal Caribbean had no comment. Attempts to reach Foxy were unsuccessful.

Brown has a storied history when it comes to cosmetics -- in 2004, she faced assault charges for allegedly beating up two nail salon employees ... and again in 2007 after allegedly beating up a beauty store employee.

D.A. Drops Battery Charges Against Lindsay

Lindsay Lohan finally caught a break this week--the Riverside D.A. won't charge her for the fight she had during her stint in rehab.

Lindsay and Betty Ford employee Dawn Holland had a little scuffle one night when Lindsay returned a couple of minutes past her curfew, and after initially treating Lindsay like she had murdered someone, the D.A. decided not to pursue the claims.

Prosecutor's spokesman John Hall told CNN: "Our office has completed review of the case, and we will not file charges due to insufficient evidence."

Dawn Holland also decided not to press charges confessing she had been biased against Lindsay "since day one". We heard another story and it had to do with a nice cash settlement.

He said: "The woman who claims she was attacked in the house had it out for Lindsay since day one. She didn't want her to drive and didn't want to give her any passes to go out. This lady tried to do everything she could to not allow Lindsay to do the things she's entitled to."

But of course this isn't the end of Lindsay's legal problems. She still faces a charge of grand theft after allegedly stealing a $2,500 necklace. She rejected a plea deal in the case yesterday last Wednesday in exchange for a reduced sentence and now must face trial. Oh Lindsay, will she ever learn?

Rihanna may be a lady on the streets, but she's a freak in the sheets.

Rihanna opens up about her sex life to Rolling Stone magazine confessing that she likes to be being "tied up and spanked". Insert Chris Brown joke here.

She told Rolling Stone magazine: "I think I'm a bit masochistic. I love feeling like I'm somebody's girl. I love to be tied up and spanked. I like to be whipped. And it's funny that I care. But I prefer to be spontaneous."

How about whips and chains, like she sings about in her S&M song? Nahh, it's too predictable.

"Using whips and chains is too planned ... you have to stop and look for the whip. I prefer them to use their hands."

She also talks about her turbulent childhood with her father Ronald Fenty, who smoked crack in front of her when she was just nine years old.

She said: "I think I'm a bit masochistic, and I did not realize until recently. I think that is common in people who witnessed abuse in their childhood."

Recalling her days as a youngster, she said: "I was always terrified on Friday because he (her dad) could come home drunk. That was pay day, and half of it went on alcohol."

Paris Hilton Interviews Lil Wayne About Prison

Webmin
No Comments

Lil Wayne and Paris Hilton aren't exactly peas in a pod, but that didn't stop Interview magazine from pairing the two together for a chat about life, music, family and jail.

Lil Wayne spent eight months of 2010 in prison -- something Hilton is familiar with, to a lesser extent -- and has been enjoying time with his four children since being released.


"My main thing is to chill with my kids," Weezy tells Paris. "They live with their moms, but they're always with me."

Wayne is renowned for his tireless work ethic, and with 12-year-old daughter Reginae, the apple didn't fall far from the tree. "My daughter loves to work, as well -- she loves to record and stuff -- so I like to work with her."

Also, Lil Wayne has two pet sharks. Read on for more interview excerpts.

On solitary confinement in jail: "For me it was okay, because it just meant that I was alone with my thoughts. There were times when it was pretty tough to be by yourself, and to have no television, no sort of nothing. That was kind of tough. But I didn't have to be in there long. It was just a month. I was okay. I did fine."

 

On life after jail: "You're definitely more in tune to what you're doing. You're definitely more humble. I think that most people who come out of that situation just want to make the most of life afterwards. Honestly it was just one big humbling experience."

 

Lil Wayne on living up to his self-proclaimed best rapper alive title: "It's very exciting. I love pressure, so I guess if that brings forth pressure, then I'm up for it. But, you know, titles are titles, and names are names. As long as people remember me forever, that will be enough for me."

 

Does he worry about offensive lyrical content? "No. That's one thing about me, and I think that's what most of my fans enjoy about me, that I don't hold nothing back. I do exactly what I want to do, and say exactly what I want to say. Sometimes I consider the fact that I have a daughter, but I also think about the realities of the world, and just let her know that this is the reality and this world is crazy and there are people out there that are a certain kind of way. I mean, once I get through that hump, then, like I said, I just say what's on my mind."






Elizabeth Taylor dead at 79

Webmin
No Comments

Elizabeth Taylor, the iconic Hollywood star whose tumultuous romances and precarious health challenges often played out as larger-than-life Elizabethan dramas, died of congestive heart failure at Los Angeles's Cedars-Sinai Hospital. She may have been 79, but with more than 65 years of screen time preserved for all time, she will remain a glorious, glamorous and full-blooded image.

Revered for her generous charity work but sometimes controversial for her turbulent personal life, the three-time Oscar honoree, fragrance and jewelry mogul and tenacious AIDS activist possessed many talents, including a remarkable gift for self-appraisal.

Just before turning 60 in 1992, she summed herself up for Life magazine, saying: "I've been lucky all my life. Everything was handed to me: looks, fame, wealth, honors, love. But I've paid for that luck with disasters. Terrible illnesses, destructive addictions, broken marriages."

Eight marriages, in fact - though she was quoted as saying the two great loves of her life were producer Michael Todd (husband No. 3) and actor Richard Burton (Nos. 5 and 6, given that they remarried, albeit briefly the second time).

Born in Hampstead, England, the second child of Francis Taylor, a timid American art gallery owner working abroad, and his highly assertive wife Sara Sothern, a former actress, Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor moved with her family to Los Angeles in 1939.

Pushed by Sara, young Elizabeth made her movie debut in 1942's There's One Born Every Minute, and appeared with lifelong friend Roddy McDowall in 1943's Lassie Come Home. But it was 1944's National Velvet, with Mickey Rooney, that brought her stardom at age 12. Not only was she a natural before the camera, but also, even then, Technicolor - and movie audiences - just couldn't get enough of her remarkable violet-colored eyes.

A string of movies followed (such as 1946's Courage of Lassie and 1949's Little Women), but critics still were not impressed - a fact she would have to contend with to varying degrees throughout her career. (Taylor once told Johnny Carson that she'd been given a preview of some of her obituaries, "and they were the best reviews I'd ever gotten.")

Her first recognition as a serious screen presence, however, came with 1951's A Place in the Sun, in which she costarred with Montgomery Clift, who also would become a close friend. The drama, regarded as one of the best ever made in Hollywood, was a showcase for Taylor's erotic power as well as her maternal strength, even at her tender teen age. Her white party gown in the movie also inspired an entire generation of high-school prom dresses.

With her showy role opposite Rock Hudson and James Dean in 1956's Giant, the then-23-year-old Taylor cemented her place as an actress, and went on to be nominated for an Oscar three years in a row - 1958, 1959 and 1960 - before winning her first Academy Award in 1961 (for Butterfield 8). She would take home another in 1967, for her blowsy role as the drunken and unsatisfied wife in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, and a third, a special humanitarian award, in 1993.

But for all the attention Taylor earned for her onscreen life, it was her personal dramas that kept her in the public eye nearly all the time.

"My troubles all started because I have a woman's body and a child's emotions," she once said. At 18 she wed for the first time, to hotel heir Conrad "Nicky" Hilton in May 1950. But Hilton couldn't tolerate Taylor's celebrity, and he "became sullen, angry and abusive, physically and mentally," she wrote in her memoir. Eight months later the marriage was over.

She followed the failed union with a brief affair with film director Stanley Donen (Singin' in the Rain). Shortly afterward, while in England filming Ivanhoe, Taylor met British actor Michael Wilding, and the pair wed in February 1952. "It's leap year, so I leapt!" Taylor told reporters at the time. That union lasted five years and produced two sons, Michael and Christopher.

Her next marriage was to producer Mike Todd (Around the World in 80 Days). Of Todd, Taylor wrote in Elizabeth Takes Off: "He was 25 years my senior and eternally young. I could hardly keep up with him. He was the most energetic man I've ever known, and he made our short 18 months together one of the most intensely glorious times of my life." Todd died a year after their wedding when his plane crashed, leaving his widow with their 7-month-old daughter, Liza. Taylor had been scheduled to travel with him, but she stayed behind with the flu.

A few months after Todd's death, Taylor outraged the world by taking up with popular singer Eddie Fisher (a friend of Todd's who was still married to sweet-faced Debbie Reynolds, the mother of Fisher's two young children), and exhibiting none of the requisite guilt. "What do you expect me to do, sleep alone?" she told columnist Hedda Hopper. Fisher divorced Reynolds and married Taylor in 1959, but it wouldn't last - two years later, on the set of Cleopatra, Taylor met her match in her costar, the swaggering Welsh actor Richard Burton.

A video on a popular United States website showing a Jamaican man beating a woman has drawn sharp condemnation from two local experts on women's rights.

The video, which up to 6:30 yesterday evening had had more than 170,000 views, is more than six minutes long. The video has gone viral, with more than 10,000 people sharing it on social networking website Facebook in the same time period.

Faith Webster, executive director or the Bureau of Women's Affairs, called the video "disturbing and distressing".

Dorothy Whyte, executive director of the Women's Resource and Outreach Centre (WROC), said she could not watch the video in its entirety due to its content.

"I cannot believe, in this day and age, that a community is condoning violence against this woman," Webster said.

Throughout the graphic video, the incensed man holds the woman and repeatedly hits her in the face and on the body.

The man, who is cheered on by others in the community, also kicks the woman more than once. At one point the woman throws a stone at the man.

At the start of the video, the man is heard cursing the woman for breaking his chain.

At least three times, other members of the unidentified community try to intervene, but that does not stop the fight. The assault finally ends when the victim is dragged away by another woman to her house, while some men in the community hold the enraged man.

Stricken Japan nuclear plant rocked by 2nd blast

Webmin
No Comments


SOMA, Japan (AP) -- The second hydrogen explosion in three days rocked a Japanese nuclear plant today, sending a massive cloud of smoke into the air and injuring 11 workers. The blast was felt 25 miles (40 kilometres) away, but the plant's operator said the radiation levels at the affected unit were still within legal limits.

Later today, fuel rods at a separate reactor in the plant were fully exposed after it lost its ability to cool down, officials said. The exposure raises the risk of the unit overheating and adds to fears of a potential third explosion at the plant.

The morning blast occurred in Unit 3, which authorities have been trying to cool with sea water after a system failure in the wake of Friday's massive earthquake and tsunami, triggered an order for hundreds of people to stay indoors, said Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano. The two disasters left at least 10,000 people dead.

Operators knew the sea water flooding would cause a pressure buildup in the reactor containment vessel -- and potentially lead to an explosion -- but felt they had no choice if they wanted to avoid a complete meltdown. In the end, the hydrogen in the released steam mixed with oxygen in the atmosphere and set off the blast.

The inner containment shell surrounding the Unit 3 reactor was intact, Edano said, allaying some fears of the risk to the environment and public. But the outer building around the reactor appeared to have been devastated, with only a skeletal frame remaining.

Tokyo Electric Power Co, which operates the plant, said radiation levels at Unit 3 were well under the levels where a nuclear operator must file a report to the government.

A similar explosion occurred Saturday at the plant's Unit 1, injuring four workers, causing mass evacuations and destroying much of the outer building.

Shortly after today's explosion, Tokyo Electric warned it had lost the ability to cool Unit 2. Hours later, the company said fuel rods in that unit were fully exposed, at least temporarily.

The company was trying to channel sea water into the reactor to cover the rods, cool them down and prevent another explosion at the stricken plant.

More than 180,000 people have evacuated the area in recent days, and up to 160 may have been exposed to radiation -- pouring misery onto those already devastated by the twin disasters.

Rap Royalty Jay-Z is helping ten year-old Willow Smith with her debut album.

Smith told Kiss FM, "Whenever I have a creative block, he's always like, 'Do what artists do when they have a block. Make a song about it.'"

This kid is so energetic, between watching her videos and listening to her talk about her "creative blocks", I just want to take a nap. She has the kind of energy I could only obtain through twelve hours of sleep and a few Red Bulls.

Recently Jay-Z told Hollyscoop, "When she comes in a room she lights up the room. She's ten years old, and just the way she carries herself is just amazing."

Smith is so confident in interviews it's almost intimidating. Most of us can only achieve that level of confidence after a bikini wax, a laser peel, and a glass bottle of merlot.

Hundreds dead after quake, tsunami slam Japan

TOKYO -- A magnitude 8.9 earthquake -- the biggest in modern Japanese history -- slammed the island nation's eastern coast Friday afternoon, unleashing a 23-foot tsunami that swept boats, cars, buildings and tons of debris miles inland and prompting a "nuclear emergency."  The death toll could well top 1,000 by the time all victims are counted.


A second quake struck central Japan hours later, causing buildings to sway. There were no immediate reports of deaths or damage.

The tsunami reached Hawaii, with initial reports citing little damage. Warnings blanketed the Pacific, putting areas on alert as far away as South America, Canada, Alaska and the entire U.S. West Coast, where some moored boats were damaged.

According to Japanese police, 200 to 300 bodies were found in Sendai, the coastal city closest to the epicenter. Another 137 people were confirmed killed, with hundreds missing. At least 600 people were injured. 

TV footage taken from a military plane showed fires engulfing a large waterfront area in northeastern Japan. Houses and other buildings were ablaze across large swathes of land in Kesennuma city in Miyagi prefecture, near Sendai. The city, with a population of 74,000, has residential, light industry and fishing areas.

According to reports, police told the Kyodo news agency that a passenger train with an unknown number of people aboard was missing in one coastal area.

The government ordered 3,000 residents near a nuclear power plant in Onahama to evacuate because the plant's cooling system failed and pressure inside the reactor is rising. The reactor's core remained hot even after a shutdown, and officials said they would release some slightly radioactive vapor to ease the pressure. The plant is 170 miles northeast of Tokyo.spot.com

The daughter of Kingston Mayor Desmond McKenzie was taken into custody by the Duhaney Park police Wednesday after a woman accused her of being involved in a visa scam.

The woman is reported to have claimed that she paid $297,000 in order to obtain visas to access three first-world countries of her choice. She said, however, that after this did not come through, she requested that her money be returned.

It is alleged that after her money wasn't returned in a reasonable time, she reported the matter to the police. The report was said to have been made on February 25 despite assurances that the situation was not a case of fraud.

It was reported that McKenzie's daughter told the woman, in an attempt to reassure her, that her reputable father had created access for visas on numerous occasions and could take care of everything.

Deejay Vybz Kartel and producer NotNice are remaining quiet as to whether there is a rift between them.

Rumours were circulating that the two had stopped working together musically since mid-February. According to several sources, NotNice was assaulted and his studio equipment removed from his house where he was working. It is alleged that Kartel was behind the removal of the equipment. However, it is unclear as to the reasons behind the move.

When The Star reportedly spoke to Ainsley 'NotNice' Morris yesterday, he was silent on whether there is an existing rift between himself and Kartel. When asked about the musical projects he is currently working on, the producer said, "No comment towards nothing at all."

The normally talkative Kartel was also silent on the matter giving no comment at all except to say that he recently released Empire Universe the Second Chapter on iTunes. The album was released on the Adidjahiem and NotNice Records.

Legal pundits say Buju has chance of success

Webmin
1 Comment

Legal opinion is indicating that the motion filed in a Florida Court for an acquittal or new trial for reggae artiste, Buju Banton, stands a reasonable chance of being successful.

Buju's defence team filed the motion in court earlier this week.

 The 37-year old Grammy winning entertainer, whose real name is Mark Myrie, was found guilty last Tuesday of three of four charges - conspiracy to possess with the intent to possess 5 or more kilograms of cocaine, possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking offense and using wires to facilitate a drug trafficking offense.

However, the 12-member jury returned a not guilty verdict on a fourth charge of attempted possession with the intent to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine.

United State-based attorney-at-law Oliver Smith believes the motion for acquittal may cause at least two of the counts to be overturned, and subsequently cut several years from Buju's possible sentence.

"As far as the gun count is concerned phone count, (using wires to facilitate a drug trafficking offense) I think is a real likelihood of success on those counts. I think the conspiracy count is doomed. The weapon was found on December 10, the date when Buju was not present, so it's highly unlikely, unless that there is some other evidence, that the jury could reasonably conclude that Buju would have knowledge that the person had the weapon and secondly, that that the weapon would be used in furtherance of the drug trafficking conspiracy. I think he has an excellent chance," said Mr. Smith, who was speaking Wednesday evening on RJR's current affairs discussion programme Beyond the Headlines.

The plaintiff in the case is attorney Ed Meyer, who worked as Joe's manager -- Joe is not a named plaintiff. Meyer tells TMZ he was Joe's business partner in the reality show.  Meyer says he's now estranged from Joe.

The suit seeks at least $20 million in damages.

A 13-month-old baby is dead after being hit in the head by a stone allegedly thrown by a man who the St Elizabeth police believe also attempted to rape the infant's mother.

Police yesterday identified the baby as Shana-Kay Robinson of Armstrong District in Balaclava, north-east St Elizabeth.

The alleged attacker, 25-year-old Donar Angell was caught and beaten by angry residents before being rescued by police who took him to hospital where he was undergoing treatment yesterday afternoon under police guard.

Police reports are that the baby's mother, 29-year-old Stephanie Morris Robinson of Armstrong District, was walking along the Balaclava main road at about 9:30 am when she was attacked by a man who threw stones at her.

A police spokesman told the Observer that one stone -- thrown so hard that it hit the "baby out of the mother's hand" -- connected on the left side of the infant's head, "exposing the brain".

The attacker allegedly chased and held on to the mother and in an apparent attempt to rape her, tore off her clothes. The woman managed to escape and made an alarm.

Residents returned with her to the scene and rushed baby Shana-Kay to hospital where she was pronounced dead.

A search party formed by citizens cornered Angell and were in the process of beating him when he was rescued by police. A police spokesman said yesterday that he was likely to be charged with murder.






Buju's lawyer files motion in Florida court

Buju Banton's lawyer David Oscar Markus has filed a motion in the United States middle district court, Florida division, requesting a new trial for the Jamaican reggae superstar.

The attorney, David Oscar Markus, in a motion for judgment of acquittal pursuant to rules 29 and 33 of the federal rules of criminal procedure, respectfully moves for the entry of a judgment of acquittal or, in the alternative, requests that the court grant him a new trial.

Buju, whose real name is Mark Myrie, was last week convicted of three cocaine-related charges in the United States.

However, in the motion recently filed, Markus said "Mark Myrie respectfully submits that the interest of justice can only be achieved if the guilty verdicts obtained at trial are vacated and a judgment of acquittal entered or, alternatively, new trial ordered."

In the motion, Markus argued that " Myrie reiterates and incorporates by reference his motions for judgment of acquittal made at the close of the government's case and at the close of all the evidence based on the absence of substantial credible evidence sufficient to prove the allegations beyond a reasonable doubt."

 Markus has argued that the Court must consider whether it is in the interest of justice to let the verdicts stand.

He also pointed to what he said were issues of insufficient evidence presented by the United States Government.

Beyonce darkens up for tribal-inspired photo shoot

Make-up: The star was paying tribute to African queens through the ages on the shoot

She was recently accused of looking 'too white' - but now Beyoncé has donned black face make-up for a shoot in French fashion magazine L'Officiel Paris.

In their 90th-anniversary issue, the Crazy In Love star takes inspiration from African culture and wears head wraps as well as tribal-style clothing and accessories - and she is seen with her caramel skintones darkened by heavy make-up.

Respected fashion magazine L'Officiel has defended the shoot, saying in a statement that Beyoncé was 'paying homage to African queens' and as a 'return to her African roots, as you can see on the picture, on which her face was voluntarily darkened.'

The magazine added: 'As for the artistic make-up, the inspiration came from several African rituals during which paint is used on the face.

Earlier this month, Beyoncé was seen sporting what was deemed a 'lighter look' with bleached blonde hair and skin that appeared to be paler than her usual shade, though dermalogical experts pointed out it was probably just a trick of the light.

And in August 2008, L'Oreal was accused of 'whitewashing' the star in an advert by digitally lightening her skin.

Oil prices hit US$100 per barrel Wednesday as forces loyal to Libya's Moammar Gadhafi clashed with protesters, expanding their control over parts of that OPEC nation.

In afternoon trading benchmark West Texas Intermediate crude for April delivery was up US$3.48, or 3.7 per cent, at US$98.90 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Prices climbed as high as US$100 earlier in the day, hitting triple digits for the first time since October 2, 2008.

WTI has jumped 18 per cent since Valentine's Day.

In London, Brent crude added US$5.33, or five per cent, at US$111.11 per barrel on the ICE Futures exchange.

The rebellion in Libya, which has the most oil reserves in Africa, follows uprisings in other North African countries that have ousted leaders in Tunisia and Egypt.

As protests widened in Libya, French oil giant Total said it started to wind down its oil production in the country, which produced an average of 55,000 barrels per day last year.

That follows similar moves by other oil companies working in the country.

The country's biggest oil producer, Eni, idled operations that produce 244,000 barrels of oil and gas per day. Spain's Repsol-YPF and Austrian oil company OMV also suspended operations.

Barclays Capital estimates that as many as one million barrels per day have been shut down so far.

A jury deliberated for five hours yesterday before convicting 40-year-old fashion designer Janet Douglas of Zaidie Gardens, St Andrew for the murder of her lover's wife.

She is to be sentenced in the Home Circuit Court on March 11 for the murder of 32-year-old dressmaker Isolyn McGill, of Corn Piece district, near Hayes Clarendon.

Supreme Court Judge Marjorie Cole Smith presided at the trial.

The Crown represented by attorney-at-law Kathy Pyke and Crown Counsel Kerri Ann Kemble led evidence at the four-week trial that jealousy was the motive for the murder because Douglas had a love affair with police Sergeant Glen McGill, Isolyn's husband.

The body, with 19 stab wounds, was found in bushes at Hillyfield district, off the Bustamante Highway in Clarendon on the night of November 24, 2000.

Douglas was first convicted of the murder in 2005 and sentenced to life imprisonment.

She was ordered to serve 25 years before parole.

She appealed against her conviction and the Court of Appeal ordered a retrial.

On Tuesday, Reggae artiste Buju Banton was found guilty of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute five or more kilogrammes of cocaine, possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug-trafficking offence, and using the wires to facilitate a drug-trafficking offence.

However, he was found not guilty of attempted possession with the intent to distribute cocaine.

Shortly after, Banton -- whose real name is Mark Anthony Myrie -- met his legal team of David Oscar Markus, Marc David Seitles and Margot Moss. Markus emerged an hour later telling reporters that the conviction would be appealed.

An emotional Markus read a statement prepared by Banton after the guilty verdict.

"Our life and our destiny are sometimes pre-destined and no matter where this journey takes me, remember I fought the good fight," said the statement. "It was a great man that said 'my head is bloody but still unbowed'. I love you all. Thank you for your support. Keep loving God."

Banton is to be sentenced in another three months and faces 15 years to life behind bars, Markus said. The lawyer is expected to apply to have Banton's US$250,000 bail restored during the period leading up to the sentence.

The artiste had been on trial since Monday, February 14. The 12 jurors, three of whom were African-Americans, started deliberating last Friday morning.

Banton's first trial ended in September last year with the jurors being unable to reach a unanimous verdict, setting up the second trial.

He was arrested on December 10, 2009, hours after two men -- Ian Thomas and James Mack -- were busted in an undercover warehouse where they had gone to purchase cocaine. US$135,000 was seized and the gun for which Banton was charged was found in Mack's car. Both men had pleaded guilty and are yet to be sentenced.

Buju Banton guilty on 3 cocaine-related counts

Jamaica's reggae superstar Buju Banton, real name Mark Myrie, has been found guilty of three cocaine related charges.

A 12 member jury a short while ago delivered the verdict in the Sam M Gibbons building in Tampa which houses the United States Middle District Court, Florida Division.

Buju was tried last week on four charges.

Buju throughout the maintained he is innocent of the charges saying he play no part in any conspiracy to possess cocaine.

In denying the claims against him, Buju, though his attorney David Oscar Markus, argued that the artiste never became a willing participant of the cocaine conspiracy charged in the superseding indictment.

The defence said tasting the cocaine, talking about cocaine and simply being present at the warehouse is not sufficient to find Buju guilty of the crimes charged.

This trial, which began on February 14, was the second attempt of the US government to convict the Jamaican artiste. A first trial last year was declared a mistrial after jurors failed to arrive at a unanimous position.
Buju was arrested on December 10, 2009.

His long-time friend Ian Thomas and a James Mack were arrested the same day when they attempted to by cocaine from undercover detectives in a Florida warehouse. Thomas and Mack pleaded guilty but Buju denied the charges. He said he decided to fight in federal court because he knows he is innocent.







Halle Berry’s estranged half-sister Renee is reaching out to the actress to let “bygones be bygones” after reading about Halle’s recent child custody battle. Halle Berry’s 51 year-old sister is accusing the actress of disowning her family and claims to have last spoken to her famous sister five years ago. According to thedailymall.com, Renee, who is a food service worker from Alabama, is desperate to reconnect with her now famous sister, especially when she is going through such a difficult time in the courts with her baby’s father Gabriel Aubry. Renee is the daughter of Halle’s late African-American father Jerome and Edwina Taylor – who broke up with him shortly before he started dating the actress’ mother Judith Hawkins.

Renee says that she remained ‘very close’ to the future Hollywood star while they were growing up, despite cutting herself off from her father after the divorce.

Renee says: ‘I’m sad to say it seems like she does not want anything to do with us. I have not spoken to her in about five years.

‘I tried to contact her through her website, to congratulate her on her Oscar, but no one got back to me. ‘We would love to meet Nahla. We are desperate to understand why Halle is so upset, why she feels she cannot be with us.’

In interviews over the years, Halle has alleged her father was a violent alcoholic who beat her mother Judith in front of her and sister Heidi.

Buju Banton jury to deliberate today

Jim Moody, the presiding judge in the Buju Banton drug case, is expected this morning to instruct the jury on the matters to consider in its deliberation on the reggae singer’s fate.

Banton whose real name is Mark Myrie is on trial on four drug and gun charges in a Tampa federal court.

If convicted, he faces up to life in prison.

In his closing arguments yesterday Banton’s lawyer, David Oscar Markus declared that the prosecution failed to prove its case beyond all reasonable doubt that the singer was involved in a conspiracy to possess cocaine.

According to Markus, neither has it been proven that he committed the other crimes for which he has been accused.

He begged the jury not to fall for what he says is the oldest trick in the book that of making several charges in the hopes that one will stick.

He said the charges brought against Buju have not been proven and has described as absurd the firearm and the aiding and abetting the commission of a felony through the use of a communication device charges.

He quoted from the novel to Kill a Mockingbird, saying it was a sin to kill a mockingbird because they sing to give people happiness.

However, Jim Preston the prosecutor has told the jury the government has met its burden to prove the case beyond all reasonable doubt.

He also said were it not for Buju telling informant Alexander Johnson about his cocaine trade Johnson would not have had a job as a confidential informant.

He said the trial was not about Buju Banton, the reggae superstar but about Mark Myrie the drug conspirator.

Buju testified for nearly three hours yesterday and later told well-wishers outside the courtroom to remain confident for the victory of good over evil.





Oprah's Ex-Lover Comes Forward

A Haitian filmmaker recently contacted biographer Kitty Kelley, claiming to be Oprah’s ex-lover. And yes, he’s a man.
His name is Reginald Chevalier, and apparently, he appeared on an Oprah look-alike show in 1985 because he bore a strong resemblance to Billy Dee Williams.

“She later confided that she instructed her producers to keep me backstage after the show,” Chevalier said. “She threatened to fire them, if I got away. She took me to lunch at the Water Tower restaurant and ordered stuffed mashed potatoes for both of us."
The two started dating, and Oprah took Chevalier to the premiere of The Color Purple. “Oprah bought a purple mink coat for the occasion and wanted me to wear purple mink as well but I just couldn't do it."
He didn’t do as he was told? No wonder it didn’t last. If Oprah tells you to wear a purple mink coat, you shut up and do it. Dating her is like joining the Witness Protection Program. You no longer have an identity.
Chevalier also provided more intimate details about their relationship.
“She loved taking candlelit baths before going to bed," he told Kelley. "We took lots of them together."

Prince fulfilled the wish of many Americans last night by kicking Kim Kardashian off of the stage during the final show of the New York leg of his “Welcome 2 America” tour at Madison Square Garden. After bringing Kardashian on stage to dance, Prince almost immediately booted her from the stage when she failed to dance with him.

“Get off the stage!” Prince quipped to the reality TV star as she just stood there while his band played the classic song “Controversy.”

After leaving the stage, Kardashian tweeted “I was so nervous I froze when Prince touched me!!!!” She later was called back on stage, this time with a group of people, and redeemed herself by dancing.

The Kardashian incident was just one of many highlights of the night as Cee Lo Green opened the show, informing the crowd that Prince wouldn’t let him curse just before he launched into his hit single “F*** You.” Green later joined Prince on stage to perform Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy,” a song Prince has been covering on his own during shows.

As expected, the stars were out in droves, as Chris Rock, ?uestlove of The Roots, Reverend Al Sharpton, Naomi Campbell and many more were spotted dancing in the sold out arena.

Prince performed a late night aftershow at NYC club Darby, taking to the stage just before 2am, with Talib Kweli freestyling. Prince ran through a ton of fan favorites and cover songs in the small and extremely packed club, calling it a night shortly before 3am.

Halle Berry has said she considers her daughter Nahla, who is at the centre of a bitter custody battle, to be 'black'.

Her comment emerged a week after the fight between Berry and her ex boyfriend Gabriel Aubry over the two-year-old turned ugly.
It was alleged by multiple sources that the French-Canadian model once used a racial slur against the actress, calling her a 'n*****.'
And Aubry reportedly 'went nuts' whenever anyone would refer to their daughter as 'black'.
The Oscar-winning actress, 44, tells Ebony magazine 'I feel like she's black. I'm black and I'm her mother and I believe in the one-drop theory.'

The 'one-drop theory' refers to the controversial racial classification of African-Americans that determined who was black in the US.

Although it was only made law in the early 20th century for decades before that it was used in some states to determine who was black, regardless of how many white ancestors they had or even if they looked Caucasian.

It varied from state to state but sometimes even if someone had one great-great grandparent that was black and the rest of their ancestors were white, they were still considered black.
When asked to define her daughter's race, Berry - who has both white and African-American heritage - tells Ebony: 'What I think is that that's something she's going to have to decide.
'I'm not going to put a label on it. I had to decide for myself and that's what she's going to have to decide - how she identifies herself in the world.

'And I think, largely, that will be based on how the world identifies her. That's how I identified myself.
'But I feel like she's black.'

This is at odds with a report on website TMZ which alleges the French-Canadian model did not like his mixed-race daughter being identified as black .

Sources connected with the former couple told TMZ: 'Whenever Gabriel would read a story about Nahla that referred to her as "black," he would go off, insisting his baby was white.

After much speculation on the sexes of Mariah Carey's unborn twins, it's been confirmed that she struck lucky and is having both a boy and a girl.
And the 40 year-old singer and husband Nick Cannon are said to be over the moon they will be getting both a son and a daughter.
'Even before we announced it was twins, I was trying to keep everything gender neutral because I didn’t want to impose an identity on them too soon,' Mariah told Life & Style magazine.
'There were fan contests on Twitter about what gender they are and rumours about them being two boys or two girls — but nobody guessed this!'
A friend of the couple added: 'It’s all about pink and blue these days,'
'It’s truly going to be a dream come true for them. They get a son and daughter.'

In December, husband Cannon, 30, revealed that they were having not one but two babies on his radio show.
'In order for my wife and I to have our life, we need to be up front and I need to be able to share things with you and be real. I didn’t even tell my wife I was going to do this. I’m probably going to get yelled at for not getting permission. We’re having twins!'
Mariah is due in April and added: 'It’s been a long journey—but a happy one.'
The songstress has certainly been enjoying some culinary delights along the way.
According to Nick, she has been cooking delicious meals for the couple every night.
However, it's him rather than her who's gaining weight.

Rihanna pushes the boundaries in new video

With the track itself entitled S&M Rihanna's new video was never going to be tame.
But the pop star has really pushed the boundaries in her latest offering, which is strictly adults only.
While her videos are never demure, her latest features the singer in a series of latex outfits engaging in S&M pursuits.
The video was shot by Melina Matsoukas, who also directed her track Rude Boy.
Throughout the video Rihanna is seen poking fun at the media, with the plot set in a mock press conference.
It opens with the 22-year-old dressed in newsprint being dragged into a room full of journalists. She gives an interview from behind a plastic sheet as the reporters scribble away while wearing ball mouth gags.
Soon they are bound by latex tape and lying on mattresses as Rihanna, now wearing latex underwear, writhes around on top of them and whips them as they squirm.
Gossip blogger Perez Hilton even makes an appearance, being led on a leash by the singer, who treats him as a pet while whipping him outside a suburban house.
In other scenes Rihanna is the one tied up as she twists and turns attempting to get free. She also seductively eats pieces of fruit including bananas and strawberries.
She even dresses up as a latex Playboy bunny, hopping around as headlines about her 'daddy issues' are screened.
Finally she heads into the newsroom as the journalists gather round, snapping away.
She seems unconcerned, lying back on a desk and flashing her suspenders.
The new video comes as an American model claimed she had a lesbian affair with a female singer, widely thought to be Rihanna.
While Tajah did not name the Barbadian as the star, she refused to deny that she was her former partner.

A porn star who partied with Charlie Sheen before he was rushed to hospital said the star was on a mission to kill himself.
Kacey Jordan, 22, said she was stunned by the Two And A Half Men actor's behaviour during a 36-hour bender last week.
Speaking to US TV show Good Morning America, blonde Kacey said she saw the star smoke from a tennis ball-sized pile of cocaine 'every two to five minutes'.
She said she was offered $5,000 to attend a party at his Los Angeles mansion and immeditely noticed his dishevelled state when she arrived.
She recalled: 'He asked: "Where's the drugs?"
To which a fellow party guest replied, '"We ran out, don't you remember?'"
She said he ordered more drugs for the party.
'A guy eventually shows up and he opens his bag and dumps open a - I would say - about a tennis ball size, of cocaine on the table,' she added.
'It was all over the back of the counter, [Sheen] was chiselling it off, putting it in there [his pipe], hitting it every two to five minutes.
'All I hear was "Light, light, light' all night."
And she said things took an even more bizarre turn when Sheen concocted a plan for the porn stars to move into a rented mansion so he could party every night.
She said: 'He wanted us all to live in this huge house that he was going to rent out. He said we could have anything we wanted.
'He said, "We're going to party, we're going to have fun". He just wants to retire, he just wants to have fun. He's like, "I'm done, I'm done."'
And he even said the porn stars could babysit his two daughters with ex-wife Denise Richards, 39 - Sam, six and Lola, five.
But she said she was troubled by the idea.
'The kids was what bothered me,' she added.
Sheen has since checked into rehab, where he is expected to stay for three months.
Jordan has also told how she had 'quick sex' with the Two And A Half Men star, who earns a reported £1.25million for each episode of his hit TV sitcom.
A representative for Sheen said: 'Charlie is currently seeking the medical attention he needs. It is a shame that... opportunistic women are trying to take advantage of his celebrity status.'

Usher is teaming up with music producer/DJ David Guetta for his next album. The man behind mega-hits such as Kelly Rowland’s “When Love Takes Over” and the Black Eyed Peas “I Gotta Feeling” may be assisting Usher in his transition to making electro dance music.

Usher met up with Guetta, as well as Akon, in Paris while on an OMG tour stop. He told a Daily Star reporter, “I’ve always been a friend of Akon’s and wanted to do something incredible with David Guetta, too. It’s by no means finished but we made a pretty cool song. I’d like to get a new album out early next year.”

He added, “There’s always something incredible coming from Europe, which I think the US is a little behind on. I’m really excited to be here and bring a little ‘rev-pop’ to the UK.”

It’s clear, based on his “OMG” and “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love” hits that Usher’s making less and less generic R&B.

Making "Black Swan" is already the most meaningful experience of my career, and the passion shown for the film has completed the process of communication between artists and audience. I am so thankful for the support we have received and I share this honor with the entire cast and crew of the film, especially Darren Aronofsky."

Dr. Conrad Murray has just pleaded not guilty in the death of Michael Jackson.
According to TMZ, he told the judge, “I am an innocent man, Your Honor.”
The actual charge Murray claims he’s innocent of is involuntary manslaughter. "I definitely plead not guilty,” added Murray.
What’s next? A trial is now set for March 28, and if Murray is convicted, he could face 4 years in prison.
During a preliminary hearing attended by 22 witnesses, prosecutors presented evidence that they say will prove Murray's gross negligence killed Jackson. Murray waited up to an hour to call 911 after realizing Jackson had stopped breathing and did not tell paramedics that that singer had been given propofol, according to testimony.

Nicki Minaj is on fire right now. She's sooooo huge, she can't even stay in a regular hotel without fans surrounding the property and driving everyone nuts.
Nicki was staying at the super posh Dorchester Hotel in London when fans basically ruined her stay. The hotel got so tired of the Minajians (yes, I made that up) that she was asked to leave.
“Long day of press only to find out we’ve officially been kicked out the hotel! Lmaoooooooo. Rescue me barbz [fans]!!!! Pleeeeeeeasse!” she wrote on her Twitter page.
“Cuz the barbz n paps were camping out n they said my barbz r 2 young. They said yesterday while I was out doing press, a fight broke out and an ambulance was called for 1 of my barbz.”
That's how you know you have some serious star power. She's a Monster star alright!






Brett Michaels to undergo heart surgery

Bret Michaels seems so happy and healthy lately I almost forgot he suffered from a major brain hemorrhage just last year.
Less than a year after his nearly fatal hemorrhage, he's set to go under the knife to repair a small hole in his heart. That's gotta be rough.
“I’ve done a lot of neurological tests, and they say I’m about 95 percent there,” he said, adding that he'll check in to the hospital on January 24th.
“I still have a little ‘funk’ with my left hand that I haven’t quite figured out, but I think with a little more therapy, by one full year (after the hemorrhage), I’ll be as good as I’m going to get.
When asked about complications, he added, “Barring any complications, I should be out within three to four days. Then, I will be down (resting) for three weeks. I don’t know if I can sit around for that long, but I’ll try my best.”
So much has happened in his life since the hemorrhage. He finally proposed to his girlfriend Kristi Gibson after 16 years together, but most importantly doctors have been keeping a really close on him to make sure he doesn't have anymore health complications. Stay tuned for more deets on his surgery!






Gyptian and Maino….another no go for the shoot.

By: Staff reporter

The man who brought you ‘Hold yuh’ which was without a doubt the biggest song for 2010 was supposed to have touched down in NYC on Friday but never made it. The reggae star and hip hop artist were slated to record the video for this hot collaboration together ‘It’s You’ but can’t seem to get the project done. It’s reported that this is the second time that the two artists have attempted to come together to record the video but without luck. The first it was booked Maino had to cancel due to ‘unforeseen’ legal issues. Now again, video team booked, club is booked, camera people yet – again and this time flight restrictions for Gyptian inhibited the project from moving forward. In fact, Gyptian was scheduled to perform later that night at an event in Queens, NY and never ever touched down in the big apple. Word on the street is that the promoter of the show never confirmed the arrangements fully with Gyptian management team as to if he would be able to even perform at the show and participate in the shooting. You see what happens when promoters try to cut corners? How you can forget to mention wit the management team that the artist would be needed? Gyptian has a great reputation for appearing at his shows so for him to miss a NYC performance is quite unlikely. As the saying goes, maybe three’s a charm. We’ll see what happens at the third attempt of this video shoot.

Damn Jesse James doesn't waste any time.
Not only did he put a ring on Kat Von D's finger just months after his divorce from Sandra, he's getting married next month!
They announced their engagement this week and they're planning on tying the knot in just a couple of weeks.
"Jesse and Kat don't see any reason why they should wait to trade vows," a source close to the couple explained to Radaronline.
"They are madly in love with each other and want to make everything official." The wedding will reportedly happen outside of California. But it better not be in Texas, Sandra will go crazy on his ass!
I don't care if these two have found love and they're all happy and sh*t, I still can't get over what a douche he was to Sandra. He was appropriately named "America's Most Hated Man" last year, and I'm still not ready to embrace this relationship. How do you guys feel about it?

Fantasia Barrino knew her married boyfriend Antwaun Cook was still shacking up with his wife when they started getting it in and their email exchanges can prove it. Radaronline.com got their hands on Fanny’s email exchanges with Cook:
“You going back home really did it for me. I’m sorry,” Fantasia wrote in an email to Antwaun dated April 16, 2010.
“How do think I Feel? When your still staying over there… But you telling me you want to Be with me…”
A North Carolina court found in favor of the 26-year-old, citing that Antwaun was separated from his wife at the time of the affair — but as the email shows, it very much appears she knew he was still living with his wife, Paula Cook.
“No excuses, you made your choice. Deal with it. No love lost her [sic],” Antwaun wrote in response to Fantasia.

£7m ganja haul in the UK; drugs arrived via Jamaica

Cops in the UK have launched a manhunt for international drug lord in connection with the seizure of £7 million-worth of ganja, shipped via Jamaica from Cuba last year, reports the Northampton Chronicle & Echo.
The drugs were individually parcelled and labelled, leading Northamptonshire police to believe that they were intended to be distributed throughout the UK. Police said their investigation had now centred on one individual.
"Enquiries were made internationally with other law enforcement agencies and these are continuing," said Detective Chief Inspector Tom Davies. “We are looking to arrest a man in connection with this seizure and we maintain an open mind as to the eventual destination of this drugs consignment, but we don’t believe, at this time, it was intended for Northamptonshire.”
The haul, believed to one of the biggest ever seized in the UK, weighed a total of 1.3 tonnes and was found on a lorry travelling between Daventry and Corby in April last year.

Coroner: Autopsy Showed Jackson Death A Homicide

Webmin
No Comments




LOS ANGELES — The coroner who performed the autopsy on Michael Jackson testified Tuesday that the pop star’s death would have been classified a homicide even if the singer gave himself the final dose of the anesthetic propofol.

Christopher Rogers, chief of forensic medicine for the Los Angeles County coroner, was questioned by a lawyer for Dr. Conrad Murray, who is charged with causing Jackson’s death by administering a lethal dose of propofol and other sedatives and failing to provide proper care.

Attorney J. Michael Flanagan suggested Jackson could have swallowed the drug, which is meant to be administered intravenously. While Rogers said that seemed unlikely, he said it would not have made a difference in his finding of homicide because of inadequate care by Murray.

Flanagan’s inquiry was the first disclosure of how the defense plans to counter the involuntary manslaughter charge against Murray. The lawyer has suggested Jackson could have injected himself intravenously while Murray was out of the room.

The testimony came during an ongoing preliminary hearing after which Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor will decide if there is enough evidence for Murray to stand trial.

Murray has pleaded not guilty, and his attorneys have said he didn’t give Jackson anything that should have killed him.

In court, Flanagan displayed a chart showing the drug levels in Jackson’s blood at the time of the autopsy.

Flanagan asked Rogers, “If the ingestion (of propofol) is by the decedent (and) led to these blood levels, it would not be a homicide?”

“I believe it would still be a homicide,” Rogers replied.

Asked why, the witness said, “Based on the quality of the medical care, I would still call this a homicide even if the doctor didn’t administer the propofol to Mr. Jackson,” the witness said.

Rogers said propofol should not have been present in the bedroom because it is meant only for hospital settings and, “If there was propofol there, the doctor should have been prepared for the effects.”

Rogers said Jackson had a strong heart and was mostly healthy.

“The care was substandard,” Rogers said. “There were several actions that should have been taken.”

Rogers also testified that Murray was improperly using the powerful anesthetic propofol to treat the musician for insomnia, and that Murray was wrong to leave Jackson’s side while he was under anesthesia before he died.

On Tuesday, a detective testified that Murray spent nearly three hours telling police about his final hours with the superstar, who was so desperate for sleep that he was getting the anesthetic injections in his bedroom six nights a week.

Murray’s interview two days after Jackson’s death on June 25, 2009, led police back to the singer’s mansion, where they found 12 vials of propofol – a fraction of the 255 vials a Las Vegas pharmacist said he shipped to Murray in the three months before Jackson died.

Detective Orlando Martinez said Murray told police he did everything he could on the morning of June 25 to get the pop superstar to sleep.

He gave the singer sedatives then turned down the music in his bedroom and told Jackson to meditate. He even rubbed the singer’s feet and put lotion on his back. But Jackson was still awake.

Murray told police the singer was growing frustrated and repeatedly warned he might have to cancel the planned 50 comeback concerts in London because he couldn’t sleep. He wanted his “milk,” which the detective was the word Jackson used for propofol.

At 10:40 a.m., Murray told Martinez, he gave Jackson a 25 milligram dose of propofol – half the usual amount.

Murray said he watched the singer for a few minutes then made a long walk to a bathroom. When he returned, Jackson wasn’t breathing. Murray told the detective.

The stunned doctor immediately tried to save Jackson, but told Martinez he didn’t call 911. “He said he was caring for his patient and he did not want to neglect him,” Martinez testified.

A call to 911 was finally made at 12:21 p.m. Prosecutors have said Jackson was dead before help was summoned.

Murray could face up to four years in prison if tried and convicted

GREELEY, Colo. — A member of the Greeley-Evans School District 6 Board of Education is broadcasting an attack on the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. on his radio station.

Brett Reese reads a listener’s letter on 104.7 FM Pirate radio that calls the slain civil rights leader a sexual degenerate, a communist and modern-day plastic god.

“Just a sexual degenerate, an America hating communist and a criminal betrayer of even the interest of his own people,” Reese says in his radio broadcast.

“His name isn’t really Martin Luther King Jr.,” Reese continues.

When asked if this was an appropriate broadcast for a school board member, Reese responds, “It’s … you know what? That’s a good question.”

Rihanna, whose relationship with her father has been strained because of his drug and alcohol abuse, reconciled with him over Christmas when she visited her homeland of Barbados.

Her dad Ronald, 57, says: “I saw her twice before Christmas and she came to see me on Christmas Day. She showered me with gifts, a lot of stuff, many shirts and cologne. She’s always really generous.”

The pair fell out after Ronald joined her on tour and “acted a mess”, as she puts it, before a gig in Chicago two years back.

“We did have a disagreement about the drinking on the tour,” he admits. “I got plastered on the tour bus. I can drink rum or beer but vodka does not like me – or gin. She blasted me for that – she was always lippy from her small days. I was picked up from the hotel in the morning and I was just shuttled to the airport.”

Since then, the relationship between the pair has been strained. Ronald, who claims that he no longer drinks or takes drugs, said: “You call her and she says that she’ll call back but then I don’t get a call back for another week. But I know how it is – sometimes she works 16 hours a day. I know how busy she is.

“Maybe we’re not as close as we were when she was growing up here and was at school. But we are blood, we do not stay angry and we are friends again.”

According to Kirkwood's attorney, The Game hasn't paid anything yet.

Data revealed by the Commission has shown that Hold Yuh was the most complained about song for 2010.
The song received heavy charting and radio play during the summer months and got 15 per cent of the 27 complaints in June alone. The BCJ which regulates cable and broadcast media recorded these complaints in its Monitoring and Compliance Report for the April to June quarter released in December. It was the only 2010 quarterly report (between January to September) which contained song complaints.

auryn Hill was late to a recent show of her at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg; some fans even waited hours. But when she finally took to the stage (at midnight!) she gave an apology that didn’t sound too sincere.

“I spent my entire 20s sacrificing my life to give you love. So when I hear people complain, I don’t know what to tell you. I personally know I’m worth the wait.”

To fans that booed her, she motioned them to the exit, and told them they could get a refund.

Raz-B’s Brother To Chris Brown: “I’ll Put A Pistol In Your Mouth”
If you thought this whole Chris Brown/Raz-B twitter beef was already ridiculous, it just got a whole lot crazier.

Raz-B’s brother, who goes by the ridiculous name of Ricky Romance, posted a video response to Chris Brown threatening to put a pistol in his mouth if he ever saw Brown in Los Angeles.
Chris Brown ain’t no punk though (had a hard time writing that with a straight face).
He hit Ricky Romance (pardon me for laughing on the inside) back with a tweet saying that he’d be in Los Angeles very soon.

January


Bob Marley may be dead and gone but his offsprings are still waving the Reggae banner high. His son Stephen copped the award for Best Reggae Album with his creative piece Mind Control. This original 'Mind Control' also won the same award back in 2008.
January saw the Black Woman and Child singer Sizzla Kalonjie behind bars - albeit for a brief period. He was taken into custody for a shooting incident in August Town.
Gaza Kim was 'disciplined' on the Gaza strip. There was a lot of bickering regarding Kartel's input - the end result she left the camp and is now trying to take her career to the next level - without the backing of her former boss.

Animal deejay Zebra proved that his many stints behind bars has done nothing to rehabilitate him. He is now back behind bars for the another raping incident.
January 12 will be etched in the memories of Caribbean folks for a long time as its the day our neighbout Haiti was hit by an earthquake. The country is still grappling with the after effects.
Jamaicans were shocked to see on the news that American Airline plane skidded off the runway and injuring passengers.


February
Black Ryno had his house shot up and of course there were the usual allegations and denials regarding who the culprit really was.
Entertainer Mikey Pelpa drowned at sea while trying to make his way into the States via other means.
Jimmy Cliff gave Jamaicans another reason to be proud when he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Jamaica was right up there in the gossip mill through our own celebrity track star Usain Bolt. His name was linked with a US TV star hinting at a relationship.

March
There was a big question being asked in this month and it regarded the whereabouts of the flossing king Flippa Mafia. Update: He eventually surfaced, it is still suspect just what he did to earn his freedom.
Mac D's faced some rough times during this month seeing the tax department coming down hard on it seizing several vehicles.
Mac D's wasn't the only target from the tax department Elephant Man was on the radar too. He was unable to fly out as he had to 'settle things' regarding the payment of his taxes.

Naked Photo Of T.I. Hits The Internet!

naked photo of rapper T.I. has hit the internet. It looks fake to us, but if you’re still interested, head over to Media Takeout.

Hasn’t this man been through enough drama in 2010? Here’s to hoping next year goes better for him.








Di first question that came to my mind after reading the story in today's Observer is - what the hell was he planning on doing with so many explosives in Jamaica?
Yuh see how dem can do we Jamaicans bad, when you land a Miami and a guh through immigration how much dog come greet you and look deh now, if di explosive never go off, there is no telling what would happen. But meck it was a Jamaica...memba sey it wouldn't stop yah suh.
According to the story Orville Andrew Braham — the Jamaica-bound passenger whose bag exploded while it was being unloaded from an American Airlines flight at the Miami International Airport on Tuesday — is alleged to have concealed more than 700 ammunition primers and other parts in another piece of checked luggage.

In the affidavit filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Affell Grier said hundreds of .45 calibre ammunition primers were discovered concealed in the lining of one of Braham’s checked suitcases.
An ammunition primer is the component of a round of ammunition that initiates the explosive charge which expels a projectile from a firearm.
Grier, who is assigned to the Miami Division Squad T-8 — a counter terrorism squad with the Joint Terrorism Task Force — said the components of a disassembled ammunition reloading press were also concealed in the lining of the suitcase.
“Other components of the ammunition reloading press were found in a zippered compartment and wrapped in items of clothing concealed throughout the suitcase,” according to Grier.
An ammunition reloading press is used to assemble component parts, including ammunition primers, to create ammunition.

“When questioned further about the fact that his suitcase did indeed explode, and that ammunition primers appeared to be visible in the suitcase, he continued to deny having anything in the suitcase that could have caused the explosion,” according to Grier.
Well we glad we never get to find out what would have been the final outcome. Thank you Father.

Halle Berry has been busy dazzling photogs on the red carpet recently, hamming it up for a new Farrelly Brothers comedy, and enjoying a new romance with Olivier Martinez -- but she says that despite her glamorous adulthood, she's still healing from the trauma she witnessed in her childhood home.

The Oscar winner, 44, opened up to CNN recently about what motivates her to work with an organization that supports women who escape violent homes.

Berry recalls being terrified that her violent dad, who physically abused her mom, would turn on her, adding, "I think I've spent my adult life dealing with the sense of low self-esteem that sort of implanted in me. Somehow I felt not worthy." As incredible as that sounds coming from a highly paid, highly photogenic movie star, she explains, "Before I'm 'Halle Berry,' I'm little Halle....a little girl growing in this environment that damaged me...I've spent my adult life trying to really heal from that."

Of her dedication to supporting others trying to escape domestic violence -- including frequent volunteering at Jenesse Center, a Los Angeles shelter, and helping to renovate apartments for women leaving abusive relationships -- she says, "I have a spot in my soul that understands the devastation that this causes a family."

R&B legend Teena Marie has died, Washington Watch host Roland Martin has confirmed.

Reports of her untimely death spread online after a tweet from Ronald Isley. The soul crooner wrote: “Just found out a friend, Teena Marie passed away. I really didn’t expect to hear this. RIP. We will miss you much!”

Soon after a back and forth about her death erupted with various stars like LisaRaye and Kym Whitley saying that Teena was in fact alive.

However, as the minutes went on reporter Roland Martin confirmed with Teena’s manager, Mike Gardner, that the singer passed at the age of 54.

Philadelphia radio station WDAS first reported the story on the airwaves.


Sheila E. shared a few scarce details of how Teena’s daughter, Alia Rose, discovered her mother’s dead body.

Sheila wrote:

“Her daughter found her in her bedroom already passed. she had seizures prior to this passing. please pray for her family.

They just took her body from her home. Teena Marie found dead by her daughter whose BD was yesterday. pray 4 her & her family.”

The protégé of the late Rick James has been an R&B staple since the debut of her 1980 release, Irons in the Fire.






Jermaine Jackson Falls Victim to Foreclosure

First the Fatboys break-up, and now this.

TMZ is reporting that Jermaine Jackson, older brother of the late, legendary Michael Jackson, may bring in 2011 homeless.
Jackson's 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom Calabasas home is set to be sold for a minimum bid of $2,184,233 January 21st on the steps of a Pomona, Calif., courthouse. After leasing the home for just under 18 months, pursuant to California law, he has 60 days from the time of foreclosure to vacate.

This is bad news for the former Jackson 5 member, who has been receiving negative media attention for failing to pay nearly $100,000 in back child support. In September, Jackson asked a judge to reduce his $3,000 a month payments to $215 per month, because he was broke and unemployed.

How a grown man can father all these children and expect his mother to support them is beyond me, but that is exactly what Jermaine and his child's mother have been doing.

Jackson, best known post–Jackson 5 fame for his love ballad duet with Whitney Houston, "If You Say My Eyes Are Beautiful," and his brother, Randy, both have children with the same woman, Alejandra Oaziaza, who along with 4 of her children were recently kicked out of the Jackson family compound in Encino, Calif.

Allegedly, Mama Katherine refused to allow them to remain, after Jermaine's son, Jaafar, attempted to taser Michael's youngest son, Prince Michael II, commonly known as "Blanket."

With all the drama, intrigue and mystery swirling around the Jacksons, I think a reality show may just be the answer to all their problems. I'm sure millions would tune in to watch this train wreck.

It's sad to watch this family, who has given us years of quality entertainment and been central to our musical landscape since the '70s, disintegrate before our eyes. From the years of alleged abuse at the hands of family patriarch, Joe Jackson, to the untimely death of their beloved baby boy, Michael, it has been one tragedy after the other. The Jacksons deserve some peace.

Then, Jermaine needs to get a job.

Brittany Murphy’s mother Sharon is under the impression that her daughter is still alive. As you might recall, Brittany died tragically right around this time last year, after battling pneumonia.

She told In Touch, "It's beyond strange. I don't have answers for it. Sometimes just in order to function, I pretend it didn't happen."

And keep in mind, as if the poor woman didn’t have enough to deal with, Brittany’s husband Simon Monjack passed away just months later! "I feel their presence here. It's comforting," Sharon told the mag.

She reportedly keeps her daughter's bedroom exactly as it was before she died.

She explained: "I'm always remembering times with her. She would always say that we grew up together, and that's true. We were so close, and such great friends."

Sharon is writing a book about Brittany right now, so let’s hope that helps her close some doors, and maybe put that house on the market! I do not know how she stays there after everything that happened this past year!

"I don't want to miss out on any experience. I want lots of children, " she told the mag.

But for now she says she’s focused on her career and enjoying being married to Russ. "Every day he amazes me," she gushed. "He makes me laugh like no one else. We are each other's perfect match."

“It’s funny, Rihanna was one of the first people to reach out to me about me writing. I didn’t even know anyone would really consider me for that. I got a call, and I remember getting on the phone with her and I was so starstruck! She was like, ‘You got a nice flow’ and I’m like, ‘Huh?’ cos I’m thinking she’s like goody two-shoes…”

“She didn’t wind up using the things that I sent her for that album at that time but we wound up having a mutual respect for each other. So I knew eventually something would happen… And so now when I see her, she fondles me and stuff like that.”

“She fondled me at the VMAs and AMA’s…. Let’s just say she’s the best fondler ever because security didn’t hem her up and she left to tell about it!” SOURCE

Will Gramps, an established reggae crooner who has performed at sold out stadiums around the world, trade his career in music for an opportunity to play pro ball? If Gramps has his way, he could be suiting up for a team and a shot at a championship for the 2011 season. Apparently the singer who grew up playing high school football in Springfield, Massachusetts with his parents and 29 other siblings will try out for Semi Pro American football teams in Georgia and Orlando. “I actually started training about six months ago but I have not gone full steam as yet as I will have to increase my strength to get in football condition” he told the Weekly Star. The big question fans will no doubt want answered is how will his football schedule impact his music career? “It won’t at all” he declared. “I will schedule my solo projects so it will be a non issue. In fact I plan to get back in the studios soon, for the next Morgan Heritage album.” He confessed that the urge to get back on the football field started when he went in the gym to lose weight a few months ago. “I remembered being on the field and the rush that I got from being in that very competitive sports. Recently I met with some of my friends that play in the NFL and one of them suggested I try out for a semi pro team.
Truth be told, I’m at a point in my life where I’m up to any challenge” he said. To help him prepare for the rigours of a pro football career, he solicited the services of a player from the Cincinnati Bengals who will serve as his coach. Training will commence after the Super Bowl. “I think my chances are very good that I can make the team. Maybe I have about a 60/40 chance of making the cut” he said.

The crooner brought an ecstatic female fan onstage Monday night for a serenade of his sensual song "Trading Places" at Madison Square Garden. He sat her on a couch while he caressed her.

The fan tried to smooth things over by massaging Usher's face, but there was no need: Usher wasn't hurt and cracked a joke about it.

Lil Wayne cannot do any drugs or liquor as part of the terms of his three-year probation for drug and gun possession in Arizona, but that has not deterred drug dealers from naming deadly narcotics after him.

The superstar rapper’s name was associated with a $250 million drug bust that yielded 500 bricks of heroin.

Newark, NJ police officers found the bricks of the drug hidden in a side panel of an SUV with the bricks and the packets of the drug packaged for sale under the name “Lil Wayne.”

A police dog was called in to search the SUV and the dog helped find a sophisticated special compartment shut by a latch with a special motor, custom designed to deal the drugs.

The US media is reporting another case of Jamaican lottery scammers targeting an unsuspecting elderly victim. A resident of Renton in Washington has been swindled out of more than US$16,000 after receiving a telephone call from Jamaica informing her that she had won the lottery. The woman paid over the money during a four month period. She said a man first called in July claiming that he was from an organization known as "Winners International" and that the widow had won a US$2.5 million lottery. After dozens of phone calls and at least 31 wire transfers, the woman sent more than US$16,000 from her bank accounts and her late husband's retirement plan. She even sold jewelry in order to meet the demands of the Jamaican scammers. The woman is now broke.

latest instalment of the vampire themed romance "Twilight Breaking Dawn". According to several reports, a graphic birthing scene has caused some members of the audience to suffer from seizures and black outs. In Sacramento, a man told CBS13 he began to have a seizure during the scene and his wife described his behaviour as "convulsing, snorting, trying to breathe". A man in Utah had the same thing happen to him, telling ABC-4, "I didn't really remember what happened. After that I think I blacked out. According to [my wife], I was shaking and mumbling different noises". Photosensitive epilepsy, which can be caused by flashing lights, is believed to be the cause.

They say no press is bad press, but Justin Bieber might have actually turned his baby daddy drama into good press. Bieber has been "staying positive" in the middle of the media frenzy, showing that he's more level-headed than most Hollywood superstars. Also, this whole thing has been great for promoting his upcoming Christmas album. On Tuesday, Justin appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman to talk about all this paternity nonsense. Oh, and don't forget, he has a new album. "It's pretty crazy. People make up false accusations. It's gonna happen, being in the spotlight," the seventeen year-old pop star told Letterman. Letterman said that he never believed the accusations, saying he "saw red" when he heard about them. "I could smell a weasel," Letterman told him. And Bieber agreed: "I can smell a weasel, too." Justin confirmed on the show that he did indeed take that DNA test to prove that he's not the father of Mariah Yeater's baby. Of course, Letterman just had to know how he gave up his DNA, and Bieber revealed that the doctors swabbed his mouth. Letterman joked: "Is there disrobing?" David Letterman needs a bonus for having to ask that question. Bieber replied: "No, no, I don't think so!" Bieber hasn't been slowing down. After his appearance on Letterman, he had a huge concert on the Today show, which involved special guest Usher. And after that, Justin appeared on The View. On the show, Whoopi Goldberg couldn't help but notice the hair growing on her guest's upper lip. Justin explained: "It's for Movember." Movember is a movement that happens each November, where men grow facial hair to raise awareness for men's health issues. According to the Movember website, the goal is to raise awareness to the cancers that affect men.

Tyler Perry defends casting Kardashian in new film

ATLANTA (AP) -- Filmmaker Tyler Perry is defending his controversial decision to cast reality television star Kim Kardashian in an upcoming film about marriage. Perry announced that Kardashian will have a role in "The Marriage Counselor" shortly before she ended her 72-day marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries, creating a buzz on social media sites. Perry says he wanted a younger cast, which Kardashian rounds out, to help attract younger viewers. In a statement on his website, Perry says he thinks "it would be a very responsible of her to be a part of this film" and good for young people who see her as a role model to "see her in a film that is about what happens in life when you make the wrong choices." Perry asked for his fans' understanding.

US authorities find major drug tunnel in San Diego

Webmin
No Comments
SAN DIEGO (AP) -- An estimated 17 tons of marijuana were seized in the discovery of a cross-border tunnel that authorities said Wednesday was one of the most significant secret drug smuggling passages ever found on the U.S.-Mexico border. The tunnel discovered Tuesday stretched about 400 yards (400 meters) and linked warehouses in San Diego and Tijuana, authorities said. U.S. authorities seized about nine tons of marijuana inside a truck and at the warehouse in San Diego's Otay Mesa area, said Derek Benner, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement special agent in charge of investigations in San Diego. Mexican authorities recovered about eight tons south of the border. Authorities spoke at a news conference near packages of seized dope festooned with labels of Captain America, Sprite and Bud Light. The markings are codes to identify the owners. Photos taken by Mexican authorities show an entry blocked by bundles that were likely stuffed with marijuana, said Paul Beeson, chief of the Border Patrol's San Diego sector. Tunnel walls were lined with wood supports. The passage was equipped with lighting and ventilation systems. The tunnel was about four feet high and three feet wide. It dropped about 20 feet on the U.S. side. Two men allegedly seen leaving the warehouse in a truck packed with about three tons of pot were pulled over Tuesday on a highway in suburban La Mesa and arrested. A California Highway Patrol officer was overwhelmed by the smell, according to a federal complaint. Cesar Beltran and Ruben Gomez each face a maximum penalty of life in prison if convicted of conspiracy to distribute marijuana, said Alana Robinson, chief of the U.S. attorney's narcotics enforcement section in San Diego. They were scheduled to be arraigned Thursday. Cross-border tunnels have proliferated in recent years, but the latest find is one of the more significant, based on the amount of drugs seized.

Baby (Justin Bieber song)


So one of two things happened: The real father came back to get his dang ol'ed baby, or she's scared Beliebers really are going to kill her. Mariah Yeater, the woman who held steadfast by her claims that Justin Bieber was the father of her child, dismissed her paternity lawsuit against the singer. Somehow, the suit was dismissed quietly under the radar last week. Yeater's lawyers, Lance Rogers and Matt Pare, have bailed on her. Yes, they both withdrew from the case. I'm guessing Bieber's lawyers asked to use Yeater's crazy Facebook photo as evidence in his defense, and her lawyers said, "we're f-cked." Justin Bieber planned to take a DNA test when he returned to the U.S.

In an interview with Australia's version of 60 minutes, 47-year-old Brad Pitt says he wants to retire at age 50. For someone who only seems to get better looking with age, this might be the worst news I've heard all morning. He tells 60 minutes that he's only got a few years left and he wants to go into the boring, non-attractive side of the business called "producing," which is what all actors do when they get too much money and want to seem important. "Three years," he says. .....Read More....

Joe Frazier: The peoples' champ

No Comments
Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier, Philadelphia, PA...



(National Review) "Don't you know I'm God?" taunted Muhammad Ali, in the first of the epic trilogy of heavyweight prizefights with Joe Frazier that defined the early 1970s. Ali even took to accompanying each word -- Don't -- you -- know -- I'm -- God? -- with a swing of his fists, unleashing another flurry of his lightning-fast punches. Frazier, undaunted, singularly unaffected by Ali's sophomoric doggerel and sophisticated psy-ops, kept boring in on his opponent, a steady, bobbing, weaving machine, and spat back through his bloodied mouthpiece: "Well, God, you gonna get whupped tonight!" And very near the end of that first encounter between them, on March 8, 1971 -- the Madison Square Garden spectacular between two undefeated heavyweight champions, billed, without hyperbole, as the Fight of the Century -- Frazier made good on his promise. It was 26 seconds into the 15th round. With his signature roundhouse left hook -- the 30th he'd landed, the final explosion in a breathtaking night of fireworks -- Frazier connected with Ali's right jaw, snapping his head back and dropping The Greatest to the canvas. Bedlam at the Garden! Ali was up quickly, but with that one punch, "Smokin' Joe" entered the ranks of the immortal, one of only two professional fighters ever to put Ali down. The pride of Philadelphia had answered definitively, at least for one night, the questions that haunted boxing, and America at large, at the close of the fiery Sixties. Who would triumph: the beautiful dancer and satirical poet, or the grunting, uneducated working man? Was history on the side of anti-establishment rebels and countercultural heroes, or unalloyed toughness and Richard Nixon's silent majority? At last, America had an answer: The uglier man, the less captivating figure, the African American who was darker and came from more impoverished southern origins, but whom Ali derided, inexplicably and unforgivably, as the Uncle Tom between them, the traitor to his people; yes, for one night, this man, Joe Frazier, would prevail. "What a man!" marveled screen legend Burt Lancaster, of Frazier, in his ringside color commentary. For those of a different mindset, the great event proved altogether depressing. "A very painful experience in every way," Hunter S. Thompson lamented in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, "a proper end to the Sixties . . . [with] Cassius/Ali belted incredibly off his pedestal by a human hamburger, a man on the verge of death. Joe Frazier, like Nixon, had finally prevailed for reasons that people like me refused to understand -- at least not out loud."

NEW YORK (AP) -- Kim Kardashian is "heartbroken" over her decision to divorce professional basketball player Kris Humphries after only two months of marriage, but life will go on, her mother says. "Just because somebody is getting a divorce doesn't mean life is over," mom Kris Jenner said. "She's not the first person to get a divorce, and she won't be the last, no matter what the length of the marriage." Jenner, who divorced Kardashian's father, O.J. Simpson's attorney Robert Kardashian, in the early 1990s and is married to former Olympic decathlon gold medalist Bruce Jenner, said reports her reality TV star daughter's relationship was made for TV are false. "That would be insulting to this wonderful viewership that has followed us from Day 1," she said. "I don't think any of us are in that kind of situation where we have to go out and ... create opportunities to make more money. I think we are just fine." She also said the family members won't stop sharing their lives with the public. "(The breakup) doesn't mean that the rest of us are going to change our personalities in any way and, you know, completely turn into different people," she said Thursday. "We're going to carry on and hopefully be much stronger as human beings and as a family." After Kardashian, 31, filed for divorce last week, citing irreconcilable differences, she left for a business trip to Australia with her sister Khloe Kardashian.

First Photos of Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's Twins

Webmin
No Comments
Six months after Mariah Carey gave birth, we're finally getting the first glimpse of her adorable twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
Mariah and Nick Cannon opened up their New York home to Barbara Walters for a special 20/20 interview on Friday night. Mariah talked about her super difficult pregnancy and how she does not want to have more kids.
"I don't think I understood the enormity or the magnitude of what it really does to your body," she explained. "It's not just, oh you don't look pretty and you have a bump."
But difficult pregnancy aside, they're both super proud parents. "My family gives me everything," Cannon gushed. "It's just love," Carey said. "It's a beautiful place to be."
Nick Cannon spoke to Hollyscoop this week at KISS FM's JoJo Jam Tour on Thursday about how his life has changed since becoming a father. "I mean, [Mariah and I] are connected for life for real now, regardless of whatever goes on."
So what made the parents so long to show off their new brood? "I think it was a privacy thing. I don't really consider it showing them off to the world, that's not really what it was about. It was a timing thing to it," Nick told Hollyscoop.
He continued, "My wife has a wonderful relationship with Barbara Walters. It felt like if we were going to do anything we didn't want to selling our pictures and stuff like that. So you might as well invite someone into our home that we are comfortable with to do an interview and hopefully that would be that."
When Nick and Mariah got married after just a month of dating, people assumed it was just a publicity stunt, but three years later they're still going strong.
"I never believe that anybody really likes me," Mariah said after Nick Cannon showed off his ginormous "Mariah" tattoo on his back. "I always think it's some kind of joke or something." Geez, insecure much? Sometimes it's hard to believe someone as beautiful and talented as Mariah would be so insecure, but it just goes to show you, celebs, they're just like us.
"Initially I was afraid of the concept of marriage [again]," she said. "But this is a different situation and a different time in my life." Now, Mariah insists, "No one will steal my spirit."

The main suspect in the murder of the daughter of reggae singer Thriller U is to be charged.
Police in Miramar, Florida say Kevin Lavon Pratt is to be charged with three counts of first-degree murder and one of attempted murder for the attack that left three people dead.
It was reported that on August 16, 2009, Thriller U's wife Camille Hamilton and their daughter Nekkita were visiting a friend and her son when Mr. Pratt and others barged into the house and shot all four persons. 
Mrs. Hamilton was the only survivor but was left partially mute and blind.
After identifying Pratt in a lineup at the North Florida prison, Mrs. Hamilton told reporters that she asked if she could speak to him in person and ask him why he committed the act.
Police reported that "Pratt just stared at Camille and did not say a word".
Pratt will be transported to Broward County to await trial.

We live in a Kardashian nation, but President Barack Obama isn't exactly a fan of reality TV's royal family!
First Lady Michelle Obama tells iVillage that her hubby, 50, doesn't like Sasha, 10, and Malia, 13, keeping up with Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian's antics on the boob tube.
Michelle, 47, says that like most parents, she and Barack regulate how much TV their daughters watch and what they're allowed to see. "Barack really thinks some of the Kardashians -- when they watch that stuff -- he doesn't like that as much," she told iVillage.
"But I sort of feel like if we're talking about it, and I'm more concerned with how they take it in -- what did you learn when you watched that," Michelle explained. "And if they're learning the right lessons, like, that was crazy, then I'm like, okay."
While the Kardashian family is known for their big spending (Kim purchased a $325,000 Ferrari earlier this month), their upbringing wasn't entirely different from Sasha and Malia's.
Michelle tells iVillage she doesn't want her girls raised as "little princesses."
"They have to make their own beds, to clean up their rooms," she says. "Sasha has started doing the laundry. Malia was supposed to be doing it but [Sasha] is really into laundry."
Khloe, 27, told Babycenter last month about her "Cinderella" upbringing. "When I turned twelve, my mom's housekeeper was not allowed to enter my room," she said. Kris Jenner told her at the time: "You're twelve now. You do all your own laundry. You make your bed."
Khloe said when Kendall and Kylie Jenner were born, "I had to do all the dishes and I cooked for them. But honestly now, I'm a great cook and I'm OCD clean and I like that my parents did that."

Or for you conspiracy theorists out there, her 'alleged' pregnancy. In four months, Tina Knowles will become a grandma for the second time (Beyonce's sister, Solange, has a seven year-old son). Beyonce and Jay-Z will welcome their child into the world in February.
Everyone is so excited about Beyonce's pregnancy, this is no longer her child. At this point, it's the world's. And we want to know details about our baby. Specifically, is it a girl or a boy?
 "They know what they're having," Tina tells Life and Style magazine. "But I'm not telling!"
Okay, Tina, you're not going to reveal the gender. So what will you reveal? Let's hear some big news about the most anticipated pregnancy of the decade!
 "She's craving waffles."
Oh, okay. Thanks.
 "The normal," Tina says. "Just wanting to eat!"
She also revealed that her daughter had morning sickness. "She went through it, but she's got past it now."
And like the rest of the world, Tina thinks her daughter is going to be an amazing mother.
 "She's going to be an awesome mom. I think it will slow her down somewhat, but I think she'll be the same great person she's been."
And Tina thinks Jay-Z will be just as great. "I think he's going to be awesome. They are very, very happy and just glowing. It's great to see."
Hollyscoop talked to ex-Destiny's Child Kelly Rowland, who agreed that Beyonce is going to wear motherhood well.
"I'm not pregnant but she seems to be fine and she seems happy and excited about the pregnancy," Rowland told us.
She added: "I know she'll be a wonderful mom." And even though she has only several months before a human being is ripped from her loins, Beyonce says she's not nervous about the pregnancy.
 "It's going really well, I am so happy with everything right now. I am not nervous because I know it's happening at the right time. I felt I got married at the right time for me, and now we are having the baby at the right time. I feel like we didn't rush anything, and now we are being blessed with everything naturally."
The singer also expressed her happiness over marrying her "best friend."
 "I am so blessed to have him as my husband. We have been together since I was 20, and he is my rock during everything."

Famous women who have been cheated on

Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon


If relationships aren't hard enough, an overactive libido can make them even harder, no pun intended. While both men and women are obviously capable of cheating, statistically, 22% of men admitted 
Uma Thurman

Uma Therman

to having sex outside of their marriage, while only 14% of women admitted to it. So let's be real, the dong is a sensitive organ.
When they're cheated on, some women choose to forgive the guy, some choose to forget about him. But almost all of them ask, "what's wrong with me?" The answer is, nothing. The penis wants what the penis wants and it usually wants everything. And just to prove that theory, here are some famous women who have been cheated on, despite having it all.
Sienna Miller: She was in a high profile relationship with Jude Law when news broke that the Brit was cheating with the nanny. Law admitted to it, and Sienna chose to forgive, but eventually their relationship crumbled. Men love cheating with nannies. You can't even hire an unattractive one and expect nothing to happen. She'll pull a Mildred Baena on your ass.
Eva Longoria: After rumors surfaced that Mr. Bean lookalike, Tony Parker, cheated on Eva, the two soon filed for divorce. Turns out the basketball player was cheating on a former teammates wife. Double douche.
Sandra Bullock: First of all, Sandra shouldn't have even been with Jesse James. She's an Oscar-winner, and he looks like he perpetually reeks of bacon. She's an A-list actress and he looks like an extra from Prison Break. She's one of the classiest--okay, you get the idea. James was rumored to have cheated on Sandra with a tatted up Kat Von D lookalike. Months later, he went from lookalike to the real thing. Now Jesse and Kat are on the outs, for like the third time this year. Actually, once this story is actually posted, they'll probably have gotten back together.
Reese Witherspoon: They're friends now, but Reese Witherspoon's marriage to Ryan Phillippe ended after he cheated on her with his co-star Abbie Cornish.
Elizabeth Hurley: This was the biggest WTF moment of 1995. Hugh Grant was caught soliciting Hollywood prostitute Divine Brown while he was dating longtime girlfriend Elizabeth Hurley. And I know her name says otherwise, but she really wasn't all that divine. Elizabeth and Hugh stuck it out for a while, but a couple years later, it ended.
Halle Berry: Halle's ex-husband, Eric Benet, had a sex addiction. So it makes sense that he would try to control it by dating the hottest woman in Hollywood. But that still wasn't enough for the guy. He cheated, and Halle ditched him.
Uma Thurman: Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke were the coolest couple of 1998. Until Ethan had an affair with their kid's nanny. I'm serious about the nanny thing. Raise your own kids, people!
Christie Brinkley: Not even being a supermodel gets you a "get out of cheating free" card. Christie Brinkley's ex, Pete Cook, met an 18 year-old who worked in a toy store. He was later caught in the act when a sex tape of the two surfaced. Talk about wanting to get caught.
Jennifer Aniston: We couldn't get through this list without mentioning the legendary split between Brad & Jen. While Brangelina were dry humping onscreen in Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Jen was at home, thinking he was you know, acting. That thing he does for a living. Turns out, Brad fell for Angelina and the rest his history.

During his three-song set for Saturday's "A Decade of Difference" concert for the William J. Clinton Foundation, Usher didn't let a wardrobe malfunction get the best of him.
He acknowledged the long rip in the left leg of his pants during his performance of his hit "OMG" and continued with his routine.
On Sunday night, he made light of the incident in a statement released exclusively to Yahoo! Music: "The show must go on," he said about his reaction to the mishap.
"I work hard and let it all hang out. ... Lol."
His ripped, baggy pants gave a new meaning to the phrase "hang loose."

Apple's Steve Jobs dead at 56

Steve Jobs for Fortune magazine



Steve Jobs, the Apple co-founder who used digital technology to resurrect animated feature films, reshape the music industry and shake up film and television distribution models, died Wednesday. He was 56.
Jobs, a computer genius who, with fellow college dropout Steve Wozniak, built the first Apple computers from the Jobs' family garage, died of complications from pancreatic cancer.
A Buddhist and vegetarian who once handed out bottles of carrot juice to trick-or-treaters, Jobs was diagnosed with the disease in 2004 when he disclosed that doctors had removed a cancerous tumor from his pancreas.
Jobs and Wozniak introduced the Apple II computer in 1977 and took their company public in 1980, an event that made Jobs a multimillionaire able to set his sights on conquering the entertainment industry. He succeeded by turning Pixar into what is arguably the most consistent film studio in history and by becoming the largest shareholder of Disney, the industry's most iconic company.
Born in San Francisco on Feb. 24, 1955, to an unmarried couple, Jobs was adopted by Clara and Paul Jobs. As early as high school, Jobs was plotting a course that included the creation of world-changing products leading to personal fame and fortune. Along the way, he feuded with some of the most powerful men in the fields of technology and entertainment, including Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, longtime Disney CEO Michael Eisner and even The Beatles

Lindsay Lohan at Calvin Klein Spring 2007 Fash...

At V magazine's party at the Boom Boom room, last night. Is Lindsay Lohan responsible for this hawt mess?
Rumors are starting to fly that wild child Lindsay Lohan may be responsible for putting an abrupt end to V magazine's bash at the Standard Hotel's Boom Boom room last night after an altercation with a fellow reveler turned very ugly. Apparently Lindsay Lohan was seen earlier that evening throwing drinks at one V mag photographer:
The photog  tweeted about the altercation, writing: "Wow. Lindsay Lohan is as trashy as they always say. She threw drinks and glasses to me as we tried to take a shot for @vmagazine."
According to one of our sources it turns out that more than throwing glasses at photographers was going on. Apparently one young female reveler had an artery on her arm erupt after a jagged glass hit her arm, courtesy of a belligerent Ms Lohan.
At this juncture no one quite knows if Lilo is to blame, but one thing's for sure the cops and emergency units came and had a very serious issue of a profusely bleeding guest. Judging from the pictures below, the cut looked fairly nasty (the carpet doesn't look sweet either does it?).
So we're left to wonder did America's collective hawt mess leave another nasty mark in her wake or is this just an opportunistic rumor flying around? Let's see Lilo's publicists explain this one....

At the age of 39 Aussie actor and heart throb,

Andy Whitfield the Latimes reports has succumbed to his battle with non-Hodgkin Lymphoma in Sydney, Australia.

eventually took his life.
Known for playing an invincible hero, his death is on some level more heartfelt and ironic given his on screen persona. But that perhaps is the pathos of being an entertainer, that the roles we excel in on the big screen are sometimes not the roles we can become as much as we will it in reality, but then again such things as cancer know no rhyme or reason, which is why Andy Whitfield's death is perhaps even more startling given the legacy and aura that he commanded on screen and of course off screen, and perhaps even more so now....
 "We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend and colleague, Andy Whitfield," said Starz President and CEO Chris Albrecht in a statement.  "We were fortunate to have worked with Andy in 'Spartacus' and came to know that the man who played a champion on-screen was also a champion in his own life.  Andy was an inspiration to all of us as he faced this very personal battle with courage, strength and grace.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.  He will live on in the hearts of his family, friends and fans."

The Barons Plaza on Constant Spring Road in St Andrew, which houses more than 37 stores, is to be demolished.
Mayor of Kingston, Desmond McKenzie, says the owners of the building have committed several violations.
The Mayor, who made the announcement at a KSAC meeting, on Tuesday said the council exhausted all channels and there will be no more discussions with the owners of the plaza.
Meanwhile, the owner of Barons Plaza, Baron Stephens, said the only form of communication from the KSAC was a stop order. The order was served for the stoppage of work on a section of the structure.
 "There was no correspondence from the KSAC as it relates to  any other aspect of the structure.  So this comes as a surprise and if the court process was pursued, there is no documentation  our side and if the demolition order was granted there is no documents from our  side either" said Mr. Stephens.
The Mayor did not say when the demolition exercise will begin.

Report: Lady Gaga Has a New Boyfriend

Webmin
No Comments
And no, it's not Jo Calderone. Though they would actually look really cute together.
Lady Gaga has reportedly been dating actor Taylor Kinney of The Vampire Diaries fame. Kinney appears in Gaga's new music video You and I.
The couple reportedly met while shooting the video, and have since been spotted together. An eyewitness saw them at a California beachside bar this week. The source told RadarOnline.com:
"It was just casual at first, but things are getting pretty hot and heavy."
If I'm going to take anything away from this, it's that people do actually use the phrase "hot and heavy."
"I couldn't tell it was her at first. It just looked like some hot couple making out, but then I realized it was Lady Gaga! Everyone went nuts! She was so sweet too - she even signed some autographs."
I change my mind about Lady Gaga about ten times in one week. She gets all pretentious and makes me want to vomit, and then I hear about incredibly normal stuff like this, and I'm like, "okay, she cool." Plus, at least she treats her fans right and doesn't loathe hydrangeas.
Gaga split from her on/off boyfriend Luc Carl for the second time earlier this year. She has said that she gets emotional when she sings You and I because it stirs up feelings and memories from the couple's relationship. Gaga adds:
"There is not one song on any of my records that wasn't written by me, and I think when you write your own music you find ways to reinvent [the songs] emotionally through yourself and performance so that they are different every night and that song you know, sometimes it's about the guys and sometimes it's about the fans."
Gaga and Carl originally started dating in 2005, but split when she rose to superstardom. They began dating again in 2010, and Gaga said they were in a "proper monogamous relationship." Gaga said of her experience with Carl:
"I've really never loved anyone like I loved him. Or like I love him. That relationship really shaped me. I sort of resolved that if you can't have the guy of your dreams, there are other ways to give love."
Then they split again earlier this summer.
The day after Gaga and her new dude were spotted, they were walking hand in hand. Holding hands the next day? Definitely relationship behavior. Another source said: "Her hair was a little messy. It definitely seemed like a 'morning after' situation."

Lady Gaga says she's bankrupt

Lady GaGa


Earlier this month Forbes magazine named Lady Gaga the most powerful celebrity
in the world claiming she's made over $90 million dollars in the last year.

She beat out Oprah in terms of power and has an estimated net worth of over $125
million. So why is she pretending to be broke?

Gaga claims she "went bankrupt" during her 'Monster Ball' tour--the same one that
grossed over $90 million--because of production costs.

The elaborate stage costumes and backup dancers cost so much, she claims she
spent more than she made. It's a little hard to spend $90 mil, but sure Gaga,
whatever you say.

She told the Financial Times newspaper: "I put everything in the show, and I
actually went bankrupt after the first extension of the 'Monster Ball'. And it
was funny because I didn't know! And I remember I called everybody and said,
'Why is everyone saying I have no money? This is ridiculous, I have five number
one singles' - and they said, 'Well, you're $3 million in debt.' "

And of course in true Gaga style, she hasn't curbed her spending one bit. And if
anyone is getting spoiled, it's her parents.

She said: "The only big things I've purchased are my dad's heart valve and a
Rolls-Royce for my parents, for their anniversary. And that was only because my

Rapper Sean Kingston earned his first number-o...

Sean Kingston

MIAMI - Hip-hop singer Sean Kingston has been stabilized and moved to the
intensive care unit at a hospital after crashing his watercraft into a Miami
Beach bridge, his publicist said Monday.
The publicist, Joseph Carozza, said Kingston's family is grateful for everyone's
prayers and support.
Kingston and a female passenger were injured when the watercraft hit the Palm
Island Bridge around 6 p.m. Sunday, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission spokesman Jorge Pino said.
The Miami Herald reports that a passing boater saw the accident and took the two
on board his vessel.
Both were hospitalized early Monday at Ryder Trauma Center, but Pino said he
didn't know their conditions.
Authorities are investigating the crash, and "nothing at this point would
indicate that alcohol played a role," Pino said.
Kingston rose to fame with his 2007 hit "Beautiful Girls" and was also featured
on songs by artists including Justin Bieber. His self-titled debut album sold
over 1 million copies worldwide.
On Twitter, Bieber posted a message of support for Kingston.
"Got my friend Sean Kingston in my prayers tonight," Bieber tweeted early
Monday. "A true friend and big bro. Please keep him in your prayers tonight as
well."
A number of hip-hop musicians were in Miami Beach over the weekend for Urban
Beach Week.
In a 2007 interview with The Associated Press, Kingston described his music as a
fusion of reggae, pop, rap and R&B.
"It's Sean Kingston genre. I have my own genre," Kingston told the AP at the
time. "No disrespect to no artist or dudes out there. I feel like I am my own
person. I am doing my own thing."
His music has been unique among hip-hop offerings, as Kingston refused to use
profanity.
"To put it in my music, that's not the message I am trying to send out," he said
in the 2007 interview. "That's not the type of artist I am trying to be."

Wrestling star Randy Savage died today in a car accident in Tampa, Florida.
The 58-year-old, known as Macho Man, is understood to have suffered a heart
attack at the wheel of his vehicle.

He lost control of the car and hit a tree around 10am this morning, Savage's
brother, Lanny Poffo, told TMZ.
Savage began his WWF career in 1985 and became famous for his catchphrase 'Ooh
yeah!'
He is also well known for his deep, raspy voice and flashy attire, typically
including sunglasses, a bandana or head band, flashy robes, and a cowboy hat.
Savage is also well known for his long-time endorsement of Slim Jim beef jerky,
as he starred in many colourful TV commercials to promote the product.
A rep for Slim Jim told TMZ; 'We're saddened by the loss. Randy was a beloved
ambassador for the Slim Jim brand for many years and will be greatly missed.
'Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this time'.
Fellow pro wrestler Hulk Hogan wrote on his Twitter page: 'I'm completely
devastated, after over 10 years of not talking with Randy, we've finally started
to talk and communicate.
'He had so much life in his eyes & in his spirit, I just pray that he's happy
and in a better place and we miss him.

NYC signing September 1,2009 Nintendo Store - NYC

Justin Beiber


Just when you thought Justin Beiber's influence on his teenage fans could not
get any bigger, he's now deciding what they should smell like.
The 17-year-old is launching a fruity floral scent for girls next month.
And he is cheekily calling it Someday, offering a glimmer of hope to his fans -
who call themselves Beliebers - that one day he might be all theirs.
'Let's be real, the way a girl smells is very important to a guy!'  Bieber told
WWD.

'I have such a deep connection with my fans, so creating a fragrance that I
personally love is another way I can bring them closer to my world.'
If that sounds a little creepy, there is a huge silver lining to the
endorsement.

Proceeds from sales of the perfume, which is expected to raise millions, will
all go to the singer's favourite charities including Pencils of Promise and the
Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Someday will sell for $35 or $55 depending on the size of the bottle, and the
fringe fanatic will also be launching a hair mist version of the scent.
Yes, world domination is clearly just weeks away.

Arnold and Maria Shiver

Maria Shriver confronted her husband's mistress over suspicions she was
secretly raising his love child, it has been claimed today.
The mother of four, 55, is said to have asked her family's housekeeper, Mildred
Baena, 50, if her son was fathered by Arnold Schwarzenegger.
During the dramatic showdown, Baena broke down and confessed, according to
America's Radar Online.
The Terminator star only came clean about the sordid affair after Shriver told
him she new the truth about his 13-year secret, insiders say.

'Maria has suspected this for a long time and she asked the housekeeper,' a
source told the website. 'The housekeeper admitted it.
'Maria then went to Arnold and he confessed.'
Insiders also claim Baena was not fired from her position with the family as
previously reported.
'Yes, her employment ended, but it ended without animosity,' the source added.
'She was upset with Arnold at the time and didn't know what to do, she thought
about going public, but it was a fleeting thought. Ultimately she didn't want to
hurt Arnold.'
TMZ reported that Arnold showered Mildred's family with money during her time in
the family's employ.
According to the website, the former Governor of California funded a lavish
party for the daughter of Mildred's sister Maria - who also worked for the
family.
Arnold and his family attended the Quinceanera - a traditional Latin 'coming of
age' party where he made a speech telling relatives that he wanted to 'take care
of' them as Mildred and Maria were so close to him for so many years.
Additionally, TMZ claims that Mildred was obsessed with former TV newswoman
Maria and wanted to 'be just like her.'
Sources claim that the housekeeper would wear the former NBC presenter's clothes
and jewellery and that after Maria left for work in the morning Mildred would
'climb into bed' with Arnold.
According to sources Mildred would go to Maria for advice on her love life and
sought advice from her employer during her pregnancy - which coincided with
Shriver's, it emerged yesterday.
Mildred Baena's son, believed to be the star's love child, was born on October
2, 1997, according to documents.

The actor and his wife Maria Shriver welcomed their second son, Christopher, on
September 27 that same year.
Baena and Shriver would have encountered one another daily while pregnant, with
Baena working in the family home but living elsewhere.

Schwarzenegger and Shriver have three other children together: Katherine, 21,
Christina, 19, and Patrick, 17.

Harold Camping in 2008


SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The U.S. evangelical Christian broadcaster predictingthat Judgment Day will come on Saturday says he expects to stay close to a TV or
radio to monitor the unfolding apocalypse.
Harold Camping, 89, previously made a failed prediction that Jesus Christ would
return to Earth in 1994.
The head of the Christian radio network Family Stations Inc says that he is sure
an earthquake will shake the Earth on May 21, sweeping true believers to heaven
and leaving others behind to be engulfed in the world's destruction over a few
months.
"We know without any shadow of a doubt it is going to happen," Camping told
Reuters.
The end of the world!

Image by Newbirth35 via Flickr

His Family Radio has 66 U.S. stations and broadcasts in more than 30 languages
through international affiliates.
His supporters have posted about 2,200 billboards around the United States about
the coming apocalypse, and dozens of followers have driven across the country to
spread the news.
Camping, a civil engineer who once ran his own construction business, plans to
spend May 21 with his wife in Alameda, in northern California, and watch the
doomsday unfold.
"I'll probably try to be very near a TV or a radio or something," he said. "I'll
be interested in what's happening on the other side of the world as this
begins."
Like his last prediction, Camping's doomsday date is based on his reading of the
Bible and a timeline dating back to ancient events including the Biblical flood
survived by Noah.
'IT MAKES US LOOK WORSE'
Camping's pronouncement of a specific date for the apocalypse puts him outside
the Christian mainstream.
Jerry Jenkins, co-author with Tim LaHaye of the "Left Behind" series of
apocalyptic novels that have sold millions of copies worldwide, has a problem
with the prediction.
"As a believer, I'm already a kook compared to most people, so for someone to
choose a date and get everyone excited about a certain time, my problem is it
makes us look worse," said Jenkins, 61.
Stephen O'Leary, an expert in religious communication at the University of
Southern California, said the idea of rapture espoused by Camping and somemore
mainstream Christians first appeared in Christian teaching in the 19th century.
"It is very appealing to people," said Barbara Rossing, professor of the New

Testament at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago who describes a huge
apocalyptic "prophecy industry" including video games, board games and books.
Atheists are reacting to Camping's pronouncement in their own way.
In Tacoma, Washington, atheists have organized a party for Saturday night at an
arcade, under the banner "countdown to backpedaling," on the assumption that
Camping and Family Radio will change their story if Judgment Day does not come.
At least 100 people are expected at the party, said Sam Mulvey, 33, an organizer
of the event and the producer of a weekly atheist radio show in Tacoma.
"If the world still exists the next day, Family Radio is going to have to say
something and most of the time they backpedal, and that's what we're counting
down to," he said.

I'm in full support of Child Protective Services, but how they can allow a show
like Teen Mom to go on, but then harass Mariah Carey for a tabloid rumor is
beyond me.

Husband Nick Cannon told Piers Morgan in an interview, "It all started when a
nurse suggested to my wife that if you drink Guinness, the dark beer, the yeast
improves breastfeeding... I don't know if someone heard that, but then they were
saying my wife was drinking beer. People will do anything to try to conjure up a
story."

I've never given birth, but I imagine the last thing you'd want to drink after
going into labor is a Guinness. You'd probably rather have a shot of whiskey or
something less filling.

 "To even have to deal with that, my wife in the state that she's in, we're in
the hospital, to even have to think about someone possibly wanting to
investigate your children... it's sad at the end of the day," Cannon continued.

He also added that people have gone to ridiculous lengths to try to snap photos
of the babies.

 "There's been photographers actually in the hospital posing as different people
or people trying to get pictures of the kids," Cannon explained. "Which is
really sad when you think about people trying to make a buck off newborn
babies."

Is Lindsay Lohan become a Scientologist? It sure sounds like it. And believe it
or not, it may be the reason she got the role on the new Gotti flick shortly
after being fired.

John Travolta has reportedly told producers of the movie he would take her
"under his wing" and make sure that she stays committed to the movie if they
agree to rehire her. But he had a separate agreement with Lindsay.

An insider told the National Enquirer magazine: "Even though producers were
hesitant to hire Lindsay because of her troubled past. Travolta assured them
he'd take her under his wing.

"He feels confident he'll be able to keep her on the straight and narrow ... now

Finger rape case could head to CCJ

No Comments
Jamaica's dispute with Barbados over the alleged ill-treatment of 20-year-old
Shanique Myrie could be headed to the Trinidad and Tobago-based Caribbean Court
of Justice (CCJ).
Dr Kenneth Baugh, minister of foreign affairs and foreign trade, has warned that
the CCJ could be asked to rule on the case if the two countries cannot work out
their differences.
This would be the first time that the Jamaican Government would be taking a case
to the CCJ since it was established in 2001.
With the Myrie dispute now at the level of government to government and a probe
under way in Bridgetown, the Jamaican authorities are demanding that the
Barbadian government does all that is necessary to establish the facts.
The dispute stems from claims by Myrie that she was subjected to verbal
harassment and a demeaning cavity search on arrival in Bridgetown.
Myrie said she was subjected to an invasive cavity search by a female
immigration officer when she arrived in Barbados on March 14.
No contraband was found on her during the search and she was denied clearance to
enter the country before being held in immigration detention and sent back to
Jamaica the following day.
The young woman has since retained the services of Hylton, who is the former
minister of foreign affairs and foreign trade.
She has also been invited to Barbados to identify the officer who conducted the
search.

Steamy: Jennifer Lopez cosies up to her hunky co-star on her new music video shoot in MexicoIt's been 12 years since she writhed on to our screens in the music video for
her first major single Love Don't Cost A Thing in 1999, instantly cementing
herself as one of the world's most beautiful women.
But Jennifer Lopez proved she's still got it in a steamy beach shoot with the

'The truth is I had a really great time,' he added. 'It was wonderful to see
that someone so huge could be so down to earth, in addition to being really
funny.'

Before she settles for Rebecca Black, Britney Spears is trying to find a less egomaniacal opening act since losing Enrique Iglesias.

Spears is hoping Nicki Minaj will open the tour, and lawyers for the two performers have been in talks, expecting to reach an agreement within the next couple of days.

Looks like Britney is hoping to find a newcomer who hasn't yet realized they're too good to open for her. Which is going to be hard to do.

If Nicki flakes, Britney could always try to get that little Asian girl that covered the Lady Gaga song. On second thought, she's probably too good. How about uh, the talking baby twins? Or Charlie bit my finger? Those guys might not mind opening for her.

Right now Nicki is on tour with Lil Wayne, but should be done by the end of April. Britney will begin her tour on June 17th.

Foxy Brown's fingernails have once again landed the singer in hot water -- this time, she was booted off a Royal Caribbean cruise because she flipped out after missing her at-sea manicure appointment ... TMZ has learned.
Passengers on the cruise tell TMZ, Foxy set up a nail appointment on the cruise ship last Monday -- a day after the cruise took off -- and showed up three hours late.

We're told the people at the salon couldn't accommodate her when she rolled around -- and Foxy went completely ballistic.

According to sources, security removed her from the salon and sent her back to her room -- where she remained under supervision until Wednesday ... when the ship dropped anchor somewhere in the Cayman Islands ... and authorities kicked her off.

We're told Foxy -- who performed on board the day before the incident -- was then escorted to an airport and flown home. Royal Caribbean had no comment. Attempts to reach Foxy were unsuccessful.

Brown has a storied history when it comes to cosmetics -- in 2004, she faced assault charges for allegedly beating up two nail salon employees ... and again in 2007 after allegedly beating up a beauty store employee.

D.A. Drops Battery Charges Against Lindsay

Lindsay Lohan finally caught a break this week--the Riverside D.A. won't charge her for the fight she had during her stint in rehab.

Lindsay and Betty Ford employee Dawn Holland had a little scuffle one night when Lindsay returned a couple of minutes past her curfew, and after initially treating Lindsay like she had murdered someone, the D.A. decided not to pursue the claims.

Prosecutor's spokesman John Hall told CNN: "Our office has completed review of the case, and we will not file charges due to insufficient evidence."

Dawn Holland also decided not to press charges confessing she had been biased against Lindsay "since day one". We heard another story and it had to do with a nice cash settlement.

He said: "The woman who claims she was attacked in the house had it out for Lindsay since day one. She didn't want her to drive and didn't want to give her any passes to go out. This lady tried to do everything she could to not allow Lindsay to do the things she's entitled to."

But of course this isn't the end of Lindsay's legal problems. She still faces a charge of grand theft after allegedly stealing a $2,500 necklace. She rejected a plea deal in the case yesterday last Wednesday in exchange for a reduced sentence and now must face trial. Oh Lindsay, will she ever learn?

Rihanna may be a lady on the streets, but she's a freak in the sheets.

Rihanna opens up about her sex life to Rolling Stone magazine confessing that she likes to be being "tied up and spanked". Insert Chris Brown joke here.

She told Rolling Stone magazine: "I think I'm a bit masochistic. I love feeling like I'm somebody's girl. I love to be tied up and spanked. I like to be whipped. And it's funny that I care. But I prefer to be spontaneous."

How about whips and chains, like she sings about in her S&M song? Nahh, it's too predictable.

"Using whips and chains is too planned ... you have to stop and look for the whip. I prefer them to use their hands."

She also talks about her turbulent childhood with her father Ronald Fenty, who smoked crack in front of her when she was just nine years old.

She said: "I think I'm a bit masochistic, and I did not realize until recently. I think that is common in people who witnessed abuse in their childhood."

Recalling her days as a youngster, she said: "I was always terrified on Friday because he (her dad) could come home drunk. That was pay day, and half of it went on alcohol."

Paris Hilton Interviews Lil Wayne About Prison

Lil Wayne and Paris Hilton aren't exactly peas in a pod, but that didn't stop Interview magazine from pairing the two together for a chat about life, music, family and jail.

Lil Wayne spent eight months of 2010 in prison -- something Hilton is familiar with, to a lesser extent -- and has been enjoying time with his four children since being released.


"My main thing is to chill with my kids," Weezy tells Paris. "They live with their moms, but they're always with me."

Wayne is renowned for his tireless work ethic, and with 12-year-old daughter Reginae, the apple didn't fall far from the tree. "My daughter loves to work, as well -- she loves to record and stuff -- so I like to work with her."

Also, Lil Wayne has two pet sharks. Read on for more interview excerpts.

On solitary confinement in jail: "For me it was okay, because it just meant that I was alone with my thoughts. There were times when it was pretty tough to be by yourself, and to have no television, no sort of nothing. That was kind of tough. But I didn't have to be in there long. It was just a month. I was okay. I did fine."

 

On life after jail: "You're definitely more in tune to what you're doing. You're definitely more humble. I think that most people who come out of that situation just want to make the most of life afterwards. Honestly it was just one big humbling experience."

 

Lil Wayne on living up to his self-proclaimed best rapper alive title: "It's very exciting. I love pressure, so I guess if that brings forth pressure, then I'm up for it. But, you know, titles are titles, and names are names. As long as people remember me forever, that will be enough for me."

 

Does he worry about offensive lyrical content? "No. That's one thing about me, and I think that's what most of my fans enjoy about me, that I don't hold nothing back. I do exactly what I want to do, and say exactly what I want to say. Sometimes I consider the fact that I have a daughter, but I also think about the realities of the world, and just let her know that this is the reality and this world is crazy and there are people out there that are a certain kind of way. I mean, once I get through that hump, then, like I said, I just say what's on my mind."
