Chris Brown mad at TMZ

Chris is angry at TMZ because the media outlet reported that it was Chris' posse that accidentally hit Chris Brown's bodyguard, Big Pat, with the bottle that sliced his forehead open, and not anyone from Drake and Meek Millz' entourage. See the rest of his rants after the cut.

Meanwhile despite denying his involvement in the brawl, independent eyewitnesses have told detectives from the New York Police Department that Drake absolutely started the fight by throwing a bottle at Chris. The police might arrest Drake after concluding their investigations.

Transgender pageant winner murdered in South Africa

A 23 year old South African man who won a Miss Gay pageant last year has been killed.

Thapelo Makutle (pictured above), known as Queen Bling, was found in his room with his throat slit last week Saturday. His friend told police that Thapelo had argued with two heterosexual men the previous day about his sexuality,  the two men followed him home, broke down his door and killed him.

The late Makutle was active in the LGBT community in the Kuruman region, and his family and friends are angry that no one has been arrested for his murder despite the fact that the attackers description was given to police.

Killing someone because of their sexuality is the height of man's inhumanity to man. So sad!

Lil Kim's new face

The 37 year old rapper was photographed in LA recently with puffy facial features; puffy cheeks, altered lips, uneven brows, and a much smaller nose.

She's had a lot of work done on that face of hers over the years but the latest one has really altered her old look. Plastic surgeons in LA say her new look is an example of surgery gone bad and are worried the singer has suffered some sort of muscle or nerve weakness due to her numerous cosmetic procedures. They said her lower lip on the left side is not working well.

Everything LV :-)

Everything Louis Vuitton, even the collar of his shirt...lol. 
The Nigerian traveler's friend sent in the photo which was taken in Ibiza.

Oprah explains why she decided to interview the Kardashians

She posted a note on her Facebook page explaining why she decided to interview the Kardashians
Ok my friends I had the longest interviewing session I can ever recall, talking to ALLLLLLLL the Kardashians. I had never met them, nor seen the show. I did a full on Kardashian Kram in preparation, watching major shows from every season. I genuinely wanted to know why they have become a cultural phenomenon? Why do so many people love to watch their every move and why do so many others love to hate them. Are they completely ego centered? Are they really “famous for being famous” or is there something more?

Dear LIB readers: Should I tell or not?

A mail from a LIB reader
Hi Linda, when I saw you post stories people send in I started to write mine but stopped. Now I am ready to ask your readers advice. I live in the US now but I lived the first 18years of my life in Naija. I'm 20 now and I live with my sister who is 10 years older than I am. It's just the two of us my mother has and I love my sister very much. She filed papers to have me here in the states and I live under her roof and don't pay any bills. Her husband is a traveling business man from naija too and he is the best man you would ever meet. He's so good to my family, a good Christian and he hardly ever raises his voice or gets mad.

Some of you probably saw the video I uploaded last month which purportedly showed Enebeli being healed by popular Lagos pastor, Sign Fireman, at his church (if you missed it, read it HERE).

The veteran actor later said he was never healed by Fireman; that Fireman stage managed his healing. Enebeli said Fireman asked two people to hold his legs and move them, making it look he walked, that he never walked.

Sign Fireman did an interview recently claiming Enebeli lied against him. What he said when you continue...

Drake denies any involvement in the Chris Brown night club fight

Drake, through his reps, has denied any involvement in the fight that took place at a nightclub in NYC last night that left Chris Brown with a gash on his chin...

From TMZ
Drake is adamant ... he is not responsible for the bloody gash on Chris Brown's face ... claiming he was simply leaving the nightclub when the brawl broke out ... but sources tell us, the fight started after Chris Brown and a rapper at Drake's table started trash talking each other.
The rapper hanging with Drake -- Meek Mill -- was screaming at Chris and Chris was giving it right back to Meek Mill. One of Chris' lieutenants was also involved in the screaming match.
