Twitter is the devil. I said it before and I’ll say it again. Twitter is the devil. Rihanna unveiled the cover art for her next single “Man Down” via her twitter yesterday. Upon viewing the pic, @NinyaBella, a pseudo fan, was more focused on her hair in the photo than her actual choice for the next single and had this to tweet:
Well, little Miss Rih Rih was having none of that and promptly fired off her reply: (more…)
People never learn. Why the hell would you make a sex tape? We’ve covered it before and I thought I had armed you guys with enough info about the dos and the don’ts. Well, it seems someone is shopping around a sex tape of Usher and his ex wife Tameka. TMZ broke the story yesterday. Apparently, the existence of the sex tape is not the only news. According to TMZ, both Usher and Tameka are “givers”. Now what does that mean to you? I take it to mean that Usher was letting Tameka pleasure him with some kind of dildo or something. I’m sorry but that is not something I ever want to see because what has been seen cannot be unseen.
Back in a big way. Towards the end of last year, news broke that Valerie Kimani was pregnant with Eric Wainaina’s child. Only problem was Eric is married to Sheba Hirst and has two kids!!! I know…perfect plot for a telenovela. Eric and Sheba had their issues, separated for a while, but eventually, Eric was forgiven and he even agreed to be a responsible dad.
Fast forward to this weekend, the Weekend Star had an exclusive that Eric was demanding for a DNA test on the child. That can only mean two things: either he’s not sure that he’s the father, or he’s not sure that he’s the father. Some of you may not know what a DNA test is. Basically, a DNA paternity test establishes genetic proof as to whether a man is the biological father of an individual. In a DNA parentage test, the result (called the ‘probability of parentage) is 0% when the alleged parent is not biologically related to the child and the probability of parentage typically greater than 99.9% when the alleged parent is biologically related to the child.
Enter Valerie Kimani. (more…)
I love Twitter on Fridays… Always so much drama. Last Friday #kenyansontwitter gave me #shikolaptopwilltwitpic (which is a long, long story). This Friday, they are entertaining me with #dearkaz. Kaz has learned what I’ve always said about Kenyans. We are such an unforgiving lot when it comes to things we choose not to forget. If you remember, towards the end of last year, Kaz had what she called her “final performance” in Kenya. It was dubbed Kwaheri Kaz. She was to leave for the States to pursue higher education at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York by the end of the year. So the end of the year came and went. She’s still here. She has a very good reason to be around though. She needs our help to fund her education. She set up an online fund appeal where you can donate and monitor the progress. You can even get some freebies depending on how much you donate. For a minimum of $10,000 you get: (more…)
The question: Is Linda Muthama crazy in love or is she just selfish? I’m not going mad. Pulse is in the habit of making me wonder about the mental capacity of some of our so called “celebrities”. Either that or Pulse has reporters who ask all the right questions to catch the subjects off guard. If you don’t understand me, have a peek at the Shaffie Weru episode.
Anyway, I digress. A week or so ago, news spread like wildfire that Linda Muthama was pregnant with Nyambane a.k.a. Walter Mong’are’s child. Why the hullabaloo??? Well, he just happens to be married with a child or children (not sure). Now, any other woman would go direct into hibernation (I applaud Valerie Kimani for that). But not Ms. Muthama. She has come out swinging, denying the pregnancy, but not the relationship: (more…)
Yesterday evening, my sister came home claiming that there’s a Kenyan musician by the name of Avril who has had nude pictures of her released on facebook (see a sample here).
UPDATE: All 3 pics are available here. And according to Pulse, Avril says she was set up…whatever that means…
Of course I was kinda skeptical…until I saw them. My goodness. I can’t even imagine what I would do in such a situation. But I do know that my mother would kill me slowly herself. To make matters worse or better (depending on how you look at it) she’s being groped by what seems to be another woman. The jury is still out on that though. We had a heated discussion with my mum on the gender of that…person. As if that’s not enough, one of the pics is an aerial shot of her butt and she’s wearing granny panties!!! (more…)
I don’t speak much about the Chrihannna Gate scandal because I always felt like we were only getting one side of the story. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not trying to make excuses for what Chris did. But you have to wonder… I mean, there have been reports saying that wasn’t their first fight. People have said Rihanna had a tendency to throw things at Chris. There was even one report that said Chris had to break the windows of her car and jump out, just to get away from her slapping and scratching him. Ladies, do not hit your man and not expect to get hit back. Not all men are taught that they shouldn’t put their hands on ladies so why would you assume he won’t??? If you’re ready to put your fists up then be ready to get to scrapping. That’s all I’m saying.
Basically, there are always three sides to every story. And Rihanna just seems very suspect with each passing day. An email from Rihanna to Chris has been released by mediatakeout.com. She sent it to him about 3 months before their big bust up. Rihanna called Chris on his cell phone while he was at a nighclub in Los Angeles. While talking, Chris informed Rihanna that his phone battery was running out and he’d call her from the car once he left the club. About 2 hours after Chris’ phone cut off, Rih sent the below email.

Before you get your panties/boxers in a bunch, let me first say that I have never met Shaffie Weru (he may be a truly wonderful human being), and yes, I am a Kenyan woman. This is purely from an outsider looking in. Those of you who read Shaffie’s interview in Pulse today must have been entertained, tickled, disgusted or just shocked. At first I was thoroughly entertained, until I took some time to process what it was this man was really trying to say. We all know about open relationships. Life gets very unconventional these days and Kenya seems to be battling to keep up with the rest of the world. I have no problem with people doing their own thing. However, we have to draw a line somewhere. Whether you want to hang from the ceiling butt naked or not, people need to respect themselves and the people around them.
Now, I’ll just pull a small excerpt from the interview, word for word, so that you can see what I’m talking about: (more…)
Yes, today we’re going to be really dramatic. Nigerian movie type of drama. What would you do or how would you react if you found out your spouse had a past sexual encounter with a member of the opposite sex? How did I ever come to think about this, you ask? Well, there’s a story doing the rounds. The main players are Gwen Stefani, her husband Gavin Rossdale and Marilyn, an androgynous male British rocker. In 1995, singer Boy George claimed Gavin and Marilyn – real name Peter Robinson – had a romance when Gavin was young. Marilyn confirmed the reports last year, saying they had a 5 year relationship. At the time, Gavin totally denied, in the it wasn’t me fashion.
In a new interview with Details magazine the now 44-year-old Gavin confirms the rumours are true, but says it was just a phase he went through. (more…)
Well, 24 year old Juan James Rodriguez thought it would be well worth his while. It all started when David Alki, a billionaire bottling and shipping magnate, offered to pay the first person to streak in front of Obama a whopping $1 million. Come to think of it, I may just entertain the idea for that kind of money. Juan Rodriguez took up the challenge and performed the dare at an Obama rally in Philadelphia which was attended by more than 17,000 people. The naked man was subsequently subdued by secret service agents after he’d shed his clothes.
Some people never learn. If you’re as old as I am, you’ll remember that Toni filed for bankruptcy back in 1998. Back then, she blamed her manager for stealing cash from her or holding her to a skewed contract. She also faced foreclosure on her California home late last year. Well, it’s 2010 and she has filed for bankruptcy once again in California. Let’s take a look at some of her creditors: (more…)
…well not in those exact words but that’s basically what he meant. Real hip hop heads have been waiting for Nas’ album, Lost Tapes 2, with great anticipation. With the help of a leaked email which Nas sent to top label execs at Def Jam, we now know why it hasn’t happened yet:
To: LA Reid, Steve Bartels, Steve Gawley, Michael Seltzer, Joseph Borrino, Chris Hicks
Subject: PUT MY SHIT OUT!
Peace to all,
With all do respect to you all, Nas is NOBODY’s slave. This is not the 1800′s, respect me and I will respect you. (more…)
Oh Boy! I just don’t know what to think. TI and Tiny were arrested last night for possession of a controlled substance. According to TMZ, County Sheriff’s deputies pulled over the multi-platinum selling rapper and his wife in a Maybach on Sunset Boulevard around 10:30PM after they made an illegal U-turn. Deputies say they smelled marijuana, and after searching the vehicle they arrested T.I. and Tiny. It has been established that the controlled substance is ecstasy. TI is still on probation from his gun conviction. This could be a violation of his probation which could have him sent back to prison.
I guess when Tiny said for better or for worse she really meant it. I’m just so disappointed in TI though. After all those lectures he gave at schools and then having the number one movie this weekend. This just sucks major balls. They were released at 4.ooam after which Tiny tweeted: (more…)
We all saw this coming. Elin would have been stupid to stay. Tiger and Elin reached a settlement agreement way back at the beginning of July — July 3rd and 4th. The final judgment papers state that the marriage “is hereby dissolved because it is irretrievably broken.” The terms of the divorce settlement were not released to the public, but it is speculated that Elin will receive anywhere from $100 million to five times that amount in assets. Elin has also been granted her request to have her maiden name restored — Elin Maria Pernilla Nordegren. You can keep your name Tiger! The two will have joint custody of their kids, ages three and one. Both Tiger and Elin have each completed a 4-hour parenting course.
Go Elin! I bet he got her to sign a confidentiality agreement though. Tiger and Elin issued a joint statement: (more…)
I love DRAMA!!! Back in the day, I loved Xscape. They were like a symbol of girl power even before the Spice Girls madness. Kick off your shoes, relax your feet, party on down to the Xscape beat, just kickin’… That was my jam! Then they just disappeared. Until a few years ago when Tamika Scott gave an interview on radio saying Kandi slept with producer Jermaine Dupri and the group basically went to pieces. Popular radio host Angela Yee recently interviewed Kandi who confirmed that the incident did happen but she insists that she did not break up the group.
Kandi on having sex with Jermaine Dupri: (more…)
While I was away, it seems The Dream got himself into a spot of trouble. Radar Online released photos of The Dream and his personal assistant Melissa frolicking in the Caribbean. Which would have been fine and dandy if he did not happen to have a new wife, Christina Milian, whom he married in September last year, and who happens to have recently given birth to their child. Just disgusting! (more…)
Gaga, Gaga, Gaga! What the hell? Why the hell would you wear 10 inch high platform shoes? The shoes are designed by Noritaka Tatehana, a designer famed for his death defying high shoes. This is what you get for trying to be ‘different’ LOL. The closer to earth you are, the safer you are. If you have a sadistic streak and would like to see the tumble play by play, pop the top… If only someone had captured it on video… *muhahahaha* (more…)
This world never ceases to amaze me. Tennis great Martina Navratilova has agreed to pay ex-girlfriend of eight years Toni Layton almost $3 million dollars following their breakup. The two have been battling it out in court for two years for property that included cash, four homes, more than a dozen vehicles, guns, an animal sanctuary, and a collection of frog art (Frog Art? WTF???) (more…)
Tiger, Tiger, Tiger. I just don’t know what to say. There are so many things wrong here. Devon James, a former pornstar, is one of the women Tiger Woods cheated on his wife with. At first I was only disturbed by the fact that he cheated with a pornstar. Now it seems he may have cheated with a pornstar and failed to use a condom! In this day and age! Apparently this kid was born in 2001. Tiger seems to be an old hand at cheating. The funny thing is he has not come out to deny that this child is his. More details and picture of the supposed love child after the break. (more…)
There really are some evil people in this world. Shannon Price, Gary’s ex-wife is believed to be the person who sold pics of Gary on his death bed to the tabloid, The Globe, for $10,000. In one of the pics, she’s posing right next to him while he’s connected to tubes! Ms. Price is starting to look real shady, especially after we heard the 911 call, and after she gave the interview where she justified making the decision to get him off life support by saying ”he would have been basically like Mohammed Ali.” Several higher end magazines turned down the offer to buy the pics. See the highly offensive pic after the break. (more…)
Why is it that every time a celeb dies, there’s always a ton of drama that follows? Gary Coleman had so much drama in life, it’s really sad to see it continue after his death. Apparently he was estranged from his adoptive parents, Willie and Sue Coleman. Gary had sued the Colemans years ago and accused them of mismanaging his earnings as a child star and the family never reconciled after the long drawn out court case. Now it seems the Colemans would like a piece of his debt change (according to me at least). (more…)
Tiger Wood’s wife Elin is attempting to dig deep in his pockets to make him pay for cheating on her with multiple women. According to reports, she is demanding $750 million in their divorce settlement. Tiger’s entire fortune is only worth $600 million, according to the 2009 estimates of Forbes Magazine.
Is that too much to pay for cheating? If I were Elin, I’d also be salty as hell about him getting caught and the family life thrust into the media by HIS actions. Or maybe she’s starting her bid high so she can settle for an acceptable amount. Either way, she is about to make bank! And he is about to learn the meaning of facing the consequences of your actions. Either way, I predict this will be the highest divorce settlement in history! Let the games begin… *drumrollplease*
Reports are now stating that Elin Nordegren, the wife of golf superstar Tiger Woods is asking for $750 million dollars from Woods as part of their divorce settlement.
Additionally, she wants full custody of the kids and will not agree to a confidentiality clause. The confidentiality clause would prevent her from ever writing a book or doing interviews about the break-up. (more…)
We all know Paris Hilton does not like her undies. She’s been rather quiet lately though. But this week, while partying in the VIP area of a club in Cannes, she “accidentally” informed the rest of the world that she hasn’t changed her motto of No Panties! I don’t care whether another woman is not wearing panties, just don’t broadcast it to the rest of us. Pop it for a peek at Paris #noassatall Hilton. (more…)
Rima Faki, the new Miss America, is the first Arab American to win the crown. She is of Lebanese decent and has lived in Dearborn, Michigan. I was excited that, for once, Americans were liberal enough to come out of their comfort zone by being accepting of immigrants. However, people are now talking about whether or not she should relinquish her crown because of these pictures. Pop it for the “scandalous” pics and my two cents. (more…)
