Meanwhile, RiRi is rumored to be spending time in Paris with Drake and even joined him onstage (pictured right).
Brown reportedly texted Rihanna on her birthday and the Bajan beauty couldn’t help herself and replied “thank you”.
But another source familiar with situation said it was Rihanna who initially reached out to Brown, telling him she “missed him,” before she flew off to Paris to meet Drake.
Well, it's unclear who started but the texts became “flirty”.....according to pagesix.com:
Chris started texting Rihanna on her birthday [Feb. 20], and the two have been sending each other a flurry of texts ever since, said a source close to the singers.Rihanna didn’t write back right away . . . but later that night she started getting sentimental and texted back, ‘thank you,’ and asked how he was.Since then, the two haven’t stopped texting each other and friends are freaked out that she’s going to start dating him again.
Just six months after the couple wed, Ian Cuthbert heard allegations that his wife had been in a relationship with another man.
It all started when Alison Kidd moved out of their home. The 46 years old posted raunchy pictures of his 34 year old wife in her underwear all over their local town with the captions – "Lock Up Your Husbands" and "Married and committing adultery within days".
The IT boss from Broxburn, West Lothian posted the fliers on trees, lamp posts, local entries and on a noticeboard of the school where the woman worked.
He was said to be in an "extreme state" when he put up the fliers believing his wife had been unfaithful and cheated on him.
Allison was left shocked and embarrassed. She called the police and Ian was charged with distributing offensive pictures of his wife after pleading guilty.
The couple is now in the process of getting a divorce.
If he miraculously wins aMcDonalds has made a new golden arch enemy -- a California man is suing the company for $1.5 MILLION ... because he says he only got ONE NAPKIN with his meal.Webster Lucas claims he was stiffed on napkins at the Mickey D's in Pacoima, CA on January 29th -- after ordering a Quarter Pounder Deluxe -- and when he went up to the counter to ask for more, he was rudely rebuffed by the manager ... who insisted he already got some.
According to his lawsuit, Lucas -- who is black -- then retorted, "I should have went to eat at the Jack-in-the-Box because I didn't come here to argue over napkins. I came here to eat."
That's when Lucas says things got racist -- claiming the manager (a Mexican-American) mumbled something about "you people."Lucas subsequently emailed the general manager to complain -- insisting he couldn't work because of the "undue mental anguish" he was suffering as a result of the napkin debacle -- and says he was insultingly offered free burgers in return.Lucas wants to super size instead -- $1.5 million.
Black and Proud Lupita Nyong'o was one of the honored at the Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon event held yesterday February 28 at The Beverly Hills Hotel.
Accepting her award, the 30-year-old actress gave one of the most powerful speeches about self-acceptance and loving yourself just the way you are. Her message basically is, "Black is beautiful" and you really don't need to be ashamed. She also mentioned Dencia in her speech. Read her inspiring speech below:
Thank you Alfre, for such an amazing, amazing introduction and celebration of my work. And thank you very much for inviting me to be a part of such an extraordinary community.I am surrounded by people who have inspired me, women in particular whose presence on screen made me feel a little more seen and heard and understood. That it is Essence that holds this event celebrating our professional gains of the year is significant, a beauty magazine that recognizes the beauty that we not just possess but also produce.I want to take this opportunity to talk about beauty, black beauty, dark beauty. I received a letter from a girl and I’d like to share just a small part of it with you: “Dear Lupita,” it reads, “I think you’re really lucky to be this Black but yet this successful in Hollywood overnight. I was just about to buy Dencia’s Whitenicious cream to lighten my skin when you appeared on the world map and saved me.”My heart bled a little when I read those words, I could never have guessed that my first job out of school would be so powerful in and of itself and that it would propel me to be such an image of hope in the same way that the women of The Color Purple were to me.I remember a time when I too felt unbeautiful. I put on the TV and only saw pale skin, I got teased and taunted about my night-shaded skin. And my one prayer to God, the miracle worker, was that I would wake up lighter-skinned. The morning would come and I would be so excited about seeing my new skin that I would refuse to look down at myself until I was in front of a mirror because I wanted to see my fair face first. And every day I experienced the same disappointment of being just as dark as I was the day before. I tried to negotiate with God, I told him I would stop stealing sugar cubes at night if he gave me what I wanted, I would listen to my mother’s every word and never lose my school sweater again if he just made me a little lighter. But I guess God was unimpressed with my bargaining chips because He never listened.And when I was a teenager my self-hate grew worse, as you can imagine happens with adolescence. My mother reminded me often that she thought that I was beautiful but that was no conservation, she’s my mother, of course she’s supposed to think I am beautiful. And then…Alek Wek. A celebrated model, she was dark as night, she was on all of the runways and in every magazine and everyone was talking about how beautiful she was. Even Oprah called her beautiful and that made it a fact. I couldn’t believe that people were embracing a woman who looked so much like me, as beautiful. My complexion had always been an obstacle to overcome and all of a sudden Oprah was telling me it wasn’t. It was perplexing and I wanted to reject it because I had begun to enjoy the seduction of inadequacy. But a flower couldn’t help but bloom inside of me, when I saw Alek I inadvertently saw a reflection of myself that I could not deny.Now, I had a spring in my step because I felt more seen, more appreciated by the far away gatekeepers of beauty. But around me the preference for my skin prevailed, to the courters that I thought mattered I was still unbeautiful. And my mother again would say to me you can’t eat beauty, it doesn’t feed you and these words plagued and bothered me; I didn’t really understand them until finally I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume, it was something that I just had to be.And what my mother meant when she said you can’t eat beauty was that you can’t rely on how you look to sustain you. What is fundamentally beautiful is compassion for yourself and for those around you. That kind of beauty enflames the heart and enchants the soul. It is what got Patsey in so much trouble with her master, but it is also what has kept her story alive to this day. We remember the beauty of her spirit even after the beauty of her body has faded away.And so I hope that my presence on your screens and in the magazines may lead you, young girl, on a similar journey. That you will feel the validation of your external beauty but also get to the deeper business of being beautiful inside.There is no shame in Black beauty.
May this new month be more successful, brings more inspiration and love in your life, Happy new month. xoxo
Brown appeared in court yesterday for a probation hearing and the judge ordered the singer to stay in rehab program, despite receiving a favorable report from the rehab facility.
Mr. Brown will also require close supervision by his treating physician in order to ensure his bipolar mental health condition remains stable. It is not uncommon for patients with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Bipolar II to use substances to self-medicate their biomedical mood swings and trauma triggers.Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD.
If you are wondering why you don't seem to have any good friends, you should probably have a look at the below given qualities I found online. A good friend...
Accepts you as you are
Believes in "you"
Listens to you
Would be there for you
Gives you space
Would be always in touch
Do not bad mouth you
Forgives your mistakes
Would be happy for you
Raises your spirits
Would be supportive
Would have common interests
Keeps you close at heart
Tells you the truth when you need hear it
Explains things you don't understand
There is a saying that what you give is what you get back. The qualities you want in a friend should be the same that you are offering to someone else. How else can you expect to have good friends if you aren't one yourself?
Be a good friend!
An eyewitness said the attackers dressed in military uniform came into Maiduguri town using motorcycles and Hilux Toyota vans laden with Improvised Explosive Devices, AK47 rifles, Rocket Propelled Launchers, petrol bombs and started shooting everywhere, and there after they they went ahead, hurling explosives on houses.
Almost all the village with hundred of houses have been destroyed by the rampaging insurgents. The primary school in the village, some vehicles and shops were also burnt.
The state Police Commissioner, Lawal Tanko, has confirmed the incident and the death of 35 people but according to sources the number rose to 52, and some people still trapped in the rubble of a collapsed building, so the death toll is expected to rise.
It was further gathered that the insurgents attacked the Mafa Local Government Area headquarters and succeeded in setting some houses ablaze in the area. There was no casualty figure of 11pm on Sunday.
More than 300 civilians have been killed this month in the states of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa

Nike released the Air Jordan 10 “Powder Blue” retro sneaker on Saturday, 20 years after the first Jordan 10s hit shelves. Like all the Jordan retro releases, this one was highly anticipated and first-day sales hit $35 million.Retail shoe sales for the Jordan Brand in the U.S. grew 11% last year to $2.7 billion, with basketball making up 84% of that, according to Powell. Roughly 50% to 55% of that goes to Nike. If you factor in sales of Jordan apparel, the international Jordan business and sales at Nike stores, the Jordan brand is contributing roughly $2 billion of revenue to Nike, which posted sales of $26 billion over the last 12 months. Jordan, the man, gets a cut of every shoe, hoodie or pair of shorts sold by Nike under the Jordan Brand.We estimate MJ’s take from Nike was at least $75 million last year. “Given that he is the name that launched the brand, you could argue that he deserves more,” says Phil de Picciotto, founder and president of Octagon. “Jordan is the perfect athlete.For perspective, in all of 2013, Adidas sold $40 million in the U.S. of the signature shoes of its top star, Derrick Rose. The Bulls’ current star guard isn’t the only one operating in the shadow of Jordan. Reigning MVP LeBron James is the top seller among current NBA players with $300 million at retail last year for his Nike shoes, according to data tracker SportsOneSource. Jordan crushed those numbers with $2.25 billion in U.S. retail basketball sales in 2013.It has been more than a decade since Michael Jordan last appeared in an NBA uniform, but MJ most certainly has still got it.
Gates has topped the list in 15 of the last 20 years.
The United States had the most billionaires, followed by China and Russia. Algeria, Lithuania, Tanzania and Uganda joined the list with one each.
