Blackface opens up about his unfinished business with 2face +his new music video

Below is what the ex-Plantashun boys band member said in a recent interview with Entertainment Express concerning his issues with 2face Idibia over rights to hit song, African Queen, which they co-wrote.
I know the song has generated a whole lot of revenue. Right now, I and Tuface have joint ownership of that song. But from the inception it was not like that. My publisher, BMI had to find a way to work that out. All the funds the song has been generating I’m supposed to have 50 per cent of it, which I’m not getting and I don’t just know what is happening. There is even a situation whereby somebody in Jamaica sang African Queen and some other persons like that of which I was not aware. Nobody told me that he was going to sing my song. So, there are some issues that I and Tuface need to sit down and iron out, but Tuface is difficult to get on the table. So I have decided to do it on my own. Surely, with time we’ll get to the root of the matter because we both have 50 per cent right to the song.

What do you ladies think of getting permanent eyebrows tattooed?

A female LIB reader wants to know what you ladies think of having permanent eyebrows tattooed. She's contemplating getting one because she says she has faint eyebrows and wants to know if having the eyebrows permanently tattooed is her best option. Would you recommend it? Would you not? Why and why not?

UK glamour model, Katie Price (pictured above) recently had hers done.

I personally find it weird and wouldn't recommend it because it never looks natural and kinda takes away from your beauty. You don't want to be walking around looking like RuPaul! I would rather apply my eyebrow pencils to my eyebrows everyday. That's my opinion, what's yours?

PSY's Gangnam Style music video hits 1billion views on Youtube

South Korean pop sensation, PSY, has done something no other artist has ever done before. Yesterday Friday December 21, 2012,  PSY's music video for Gangnam Style exceeded 1 billion views on YouTube, becoming the first video to ever do so in YouTube's history.

Google reports that Gangnam Style sees about 7 million views a day... no small feat from a man who was a complete unknown Stateside just a few months ago. 
"Honestly, when I made this video I didn't even expect 1 million views, because this is off my sixth album in Korea, so I just hoped it would be huge there," PSY recently told MTV News. "I didn't even think about any other countries; I just did my job and waited and watched. And, you know, today, I'm still wondering and analyzing its success. Because I've done this thing many times, this dance, this album, this video ... this one just became something else entirely."

"I've not seen my baby daddy in a while' - Grace Amah opens up on life as a single mum

"I have not seen the father of my child in a while. I live here (Nigeria) and he lives abroad (UK), though we talk on the phone often. I come from a very strict family so my parents were a little disappointed when I got pregnant because they were hoping I would get married first but you would have to agree with me that it's not everybody that has to get married before having a child. It happened, and I wouldn't because I have to get married first abort my child. Being a single mother is not easy but I manage. How do I deal with my sexual feelings since he's not here? That's when the phone comes in. When I hear him, it's all fine. It may not work for other people that way, but it works for me. And there's no truth in the reports that my man is a married man. I don't go for married men  and to the best of my knowledge he's not married. - Actress Grace Amah said in a recent interview

These two will soon give me a migraine. Are they or are they not? Yes, it's my business to mind their business...lol. So are Rihanna and Chris Brown hinting they are not done yet? Just two days after posting on her Instagram page that she was single, Rihanna is singing a different tune.

Aluu4 trial stalls due to prison officials failure to produce suspects

The 13 people arrested for the October 5th murder of four students of the University of Port Harcourt were meant to appear in court yesterday Thursday December 20th but the trial was stalled due to the failure of prison officials to produce them in court.

At the resumed hearing yesterday morning, the prosecutor told the court that the accused persons were in the court cell, but could not be brought in because of shortage of prison personnel. Yes, they actually said that! Shortage of prison personnel? Does that even make sense? The prosecutor also said he was yet to receive any advice on the matter from the Director of Public prosecution to whom the case file was referred.

The case was then adjourned till February 28, 2013. The suspects were remanded in prison.
