She says no one, not even her BFF Melissa was allowed to talk to her about Chris Brown.
“I just felt like, why bother? Nobody else is going through it. Nobody would understand.”
Is Rihanna mad at Chris Brown?
“I wanted him to know what it felt like to lose me. To feel the consequences of that. So when that (stuff) came back it hit me like a ton of bricks. Like, God, you’ve got to be kidding right now. But I got real with myself, and I just couldn’t bury the way I felt.”

Chris Brown Quits social media

More like he quit Instagram because his Twitter account is still up. The singer deleted his Instagram page yesterday night after being ruthless bashed online for comparing himself to Jesus in the wake of his fist fight with Frank Ocean. Chris posted the photo on the right yesterday after he was criticized for fighting Ocean. He felt he was being crucified and judged like Jesus. The insults that followed after he posted the photo was too much for him and he deleted all the photos on his Instagram page...but not before notifying his fans of his departure...
"I would like to thank all my wonderful fans for letting me express my talents/art for you all. But social media takes away the essence of why we are even special or icons. So with that, I'm detaching myself from that world."
"Elevate yourself above the negative and if it doesn't work move on! I respect myself enough as well as my fans to wanna be great!"

The incredible sketches of Nigerian artist, Kelvin Okafor

27 year old Kelvin Okafor is a graduate of Fine Art, Middlesex University and is now making waves across the world with his incredible pencil drawings that looks like photographs.

Kelvin creates each piece only in black and white, using graphite pencils, charcoal, and black coloured pencil. He's exhibited at numerous major art galleries and won several national awards for his remarkable work. His work is currently on display at the The Watercolours + Works on Paper Fair at the London Science Museum, until February 3.

Kelvin writes on his blog:
'I aspire to create art as vivid as eyes could see. I want my drawings to prompt an emotional response, making viewers feel as though they are looking at a real live subject. I’ve always been creative, but fell in love with using pencils in particular. 
It amazed me, that with only one shade of lead, you can create so many tones and textures, and almost create the illusion of colour. It was only when my images started to create a buzz with other Middlesex University students that I realised their impact.'

Is this the real Emmanuel Eboue dissing Nigerians on Twitter?

 
I'm beginning to think that this may not be the real Emmanuel Eboue, though quite a number of people believe it's him. 

The Ivory coast football player (if it's really him) is taking his criticism of the Super Eagles to another level by slamming and insulting Nigeria as a whole. See his Tweets below.

Dear LIB readers: My fiance doesn't believe in love

From a LIB reader
Every time I tell my fiance I love him, he tells me to get real. He told me recently that he doesn't believe in love, not interested in it and not looking for it. All he wants is a woman he can spend the rest of his life with in peace, a woman who will give him children and no troubles and that woman is me. What's that supposed to mean? He doesn't love me?
Well, he chose you, that must mean something, right? What do you guys think...

Charlyboy declares public holiday for wife Lady D, shuts office

Charly Boy's wife of over 30 years, Lady Di, turned a year older today and the area father honoured her by declaring one-week public holiday both in his house and in his office.

Read Charlyboy's tribute to Lady D below:
“ Like a flash of light, I’m startled at where we are today. The journey of marriage is always the higher you go, the tougher it becomes, but my journey with you in the past 30 years has been in the reverse; the higher we climb, the better, the easier it becomes. With all the mysteries, the enigma and the eccentric persona of the Charlyboy brand that has so tormented our lives; you are unswervingly glued to Mr. Oputa. You have never mixed up the two. You know your husband and your husband knows you.
