Chris Brown, just
snagged himself a $1.5 Million bachelor pad
in Hollywood Hills. Chris is now the proud
owner of a 2,500 square ft. home complete
with 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a split level
living room, an italian crafted kitchen, 2-
door garage and swimming pool. The home
sits on top of a hill overlooking the streets
of Hollywood, and seems to be a much
better fit for the singer who’s still young
and still likes to party. The 22 year old
ditched his old West Hollywood condo due
to lack of parking space and complaints

Two of Maybach Music Group’s heaviest
hitters grace the cover of the latest issue of
Billboard Magazine where Rick Ross
discusses how he has always comes
through in “clutch” situations throughout
his entire career, and his decision to sign
the MMG roster including Wale, Meek Mill and
The Maybach Music head also discussed his
upcoming album God Forgives, I
Don’t which he recently pushed back due to
issues with his health. ”This album is almost
like a movie,” Ross says. “I wanted [the title]
to be something that was extremely
emotional, to set up a real roller coaster ride
as far as the music and thought process. It
sounds like a term of retaliation, and with
the picture that I’m painting, it felt perfect.”
Issue on stands now.

Many people have gotten the wrong
impression about this talented actor that is

Meet Kristina Rei, the woman who now has
the world’s biggest lips. She’s only 22 and
has spent £4,000 on lip injections in the
hopes of resembling her favourite film
heroine, Jessica Rabbit.
The nail technician from St. Petersburg,
Russia was convinced her thin lips were
ugly, so she opted to get a lip job – 100 of
them – and aims to make her enormous
pout even bigger!
Speaking about her plump pout, Kristina
Rei said: “I think I look fantastic and it
makes me happy. Sometimes strangers
shout names at me in the street “like big
lips” but I don’t care. I want to go more
extreme. I want to look like a cartoon
She added: “I am addicted to it – I love it.”
Kristina Rei has wanted her lips enhanced
since she was four years old, and says she
was always insecure about her appearance
– and childhood teasing didn’t help her
confidence. Russian TV adverts that
promote cosmetic surgery are common, she
said, giving her the idea at a very young
age. She got her first injection at 17, and
hasn’t looked back. Rei can eat, speak and
kiss the same way she did before and says
she hasn’t suffered any painful after-
She said: “Other than the way I look, my lips
haven’t had a big impact on my life, so I’m
definitely not going to stop now.”

He's claiming to be a father of six. Claims to

this...selling his body for money - to both

find there - a number of nakéd pics
..including full frontal...all in the bid to attract
And then in the same pornography album -
you will see pics of his six alleged
kids...wow! (How he can put his kids photos
in such an x-rated album is beyond me)
He claims he's doing this because he has six
children to take care of. My question is, if he
couldn't look after one child, why did he
Is there an excuse for this? Personally, I
don't think there is. We all have choices, this
is what he chose...sad! To see more, go on

“What we witnessed here in Norton this
morning is taboo,” said one of the
mourners. “Imagine a woman who buried
her child two days ago is already having
sex with a married man before the relatives

yake iye kwava kunotora murume
wemunhu; zvinonyadzisa,” said one of the
mourners. (She left her husband and her
brother who were both asleep in the house
and proceeded to go out and have sex with
a married man; it is shameful.) Nelia buried
her child on Friday and relatives were still
gathered at House No. K1219 Katanga
where she sneaked and had a quality time
with Jason over night.
Nelia told her husband Hardlife Manduka
(30) that she was going to collect her mobile
phone from a friend before spending the
whole night with Jason. Nelia confirmed
that she had been having an affair with

“Hardlife has not been supporting me and
the two kids financially. In fact my child
died due to malnutrition. If he fails to
forgive me I will go to South Africa to look
for a job because all my relatives are
against me after this,” said Nelia.
Jason fled the house leaving his car. Jason’s
wife Melissa Shoko (27) said that she
discovered the affair after Jason left Nelia’s
mobile phone in his pocket.
“He lied to me that he was arrested for
public drinking last night and I quickly
suspected that he was with Nelia,” said
“I found him twice on Nelia’s bed. I knew
that he was lying to me this time around. At
one time I called his sister named Charity

bedroom some time in June when my child
was just three-months-old.”

this while Nelia’s parents were there and he

friend. Little did I know that it was a
boyfriend she was with before I was called

My Car Was Attacked,My Cousin Killed And My Driver Escaped With A Bullet – Nollywood Actor Clems Ohameze
Talented Nollywood Actor Talks about how
he was attacked by a group of unknown
persons. Excerpt from the Interview with
Nollywood Actor Clems Ohameze.
Can we know you sir?
My name is Clems Ohameze, from Imo state
but born and brought up in Port Harcourt.
For how long have you been into acting?
How many movies you featured in so far?
(Laughs) As about my last counting, it was
around 386 movies.
You have been away for two and a half
years now, what happened?
Well, well, well, in the year 2007…it was
actually 2006…I felt that I have fulfilled my
desire in the movie industry. After all the
movies and the awards, I just felt I needed
to move on and do something else, so I set
out for politics.
In 2006, I registered with the presently
ruling party PDP and contested for house of
reps in Imo state. I won the primaries and
immediately after that, I was faced with all
sorts of threats.
Some people felt I should not be a star in a
movie industry and a star in the politics as
well. So they said, “no, Clems, you are not
supposed to be here, go and face your
movie and leave us here.”
I felt that was what led them to do what
they did. My car was attacked. I escaped
their attacks severally. My cousin was killed,
my driver escaped with a bullet. It was that
serious. They thought I was inside the car
and they wanted to eliminate me.
I had to leave Owerri and escaped through
Enugu to Abuja, and travelled out of the
country to UK and from there to America.
In fact, I was just running around for my
safety. What helped me mostly is that I’m a
citizen so I do not have limits to what I can
do out there. But thanks to God, I’m back
home now for good. I came back to Nigeria
last year, because I believe everything is
Since your return last year, how many
movies have you done?
I have done at least 26 movies.
Now that you’re fully back, what are we
expecting from you?
A lot. Yes…we are still doing what we do
because we have passion for it. I used to tell
my friends that I can’t leave film making,
because I want to make fame. This business
is the only one that opens doors. As long as
you are in this business, any door you
knock on, it will open without much stress.
I have a lot I’m doing. I have business
interests in U.S, U.K and Ivory Coast.
Now that you are back, what are the
changes you noticed in Nollywood?
There’s a revolution in Nollywood. Not the
kind of revolution with violence, we don’t
I always tell people that the industry will
always evolve for good, which is why I
called it evolution. Now, with the aspect of
coming back to the cinema, we are heading
to the point where the professionals will
take over the business and things will be
Right now, the people in control of the
industry are not really the top professionals,
but I give them kudos, because without
them we won’t have come this far. But all
we ask them for is let there be some
finance, let there be some structure.
One of the biggest finance today in US is
Hollywood. The government here in Nigeria
got involved in Nollywood, because they
found out that Nollywood is mega money
business or structure. That is where they
got it wrong. You can’t just jump in from
nowhere and take over what people used
their life and money to build.
No! We don’t work that way. But anyway
the change will come and is coming
gradually. And it’s most unfortunate that the
people we helped are not the people that
will take us to promise land. There are
people who have not come out to talk about
the faring of the industry, those are the
people in due time will take up Nollywood.
Your general challenges?
The job itself is challenging. I can’t really
say…but we do experience challenges from
time to time, especially when you have to
go out to locations. But the most important
thing I can call challenge is the fact that you
have lost your private life. You are now a
public figure. You are limited in things you
What inspires you?
The fact that I want to affect people’s lives
through movies inspires me a lot.
Apart from acting, have you produced any
movie of your own?
Yes, have produced four movies. Two were
shot in Ivory Coast and there are French
movies, while two others are in English and
were shot here in Nigeria.
(Laughs) Women turn me off; I know you
will soon ask that.
Good food turns me on.
About your last job and this one you are
I can’t talk about it because I’ll be selling out
the movie to readers. I can only talk about
the ones in the market because this is just
like piracy to me. I don’t have to break the
How do you cope with fans?
Without them there is no me, because they
are the mirror that I see myself in. They’re
the most important thing in my life and my
career, because without them, you are like
every other person walking on the street.
They are the mirror in which when you are
getting older or younger they will tell you.
Anything else you want to tell us?
Nothing more to say, but the name of your
magazine scares me. I hope you don’t
gossip me (Laughs).

Hilarious article written by one Destiny Azu
who writes for Yes! Magazine. Some of the
things you read eh...lol. It's not the story
itself, it's the way it was written. Check it
Culled from Yes! Magazine
City Tracks scoop has uncovered a rather
bizarre past time of Prince Okojie, the
hubby of Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson
Okojie, especially each time his role
interpreter wife goes on movie location.
Each day of the week, he visits all the
newsstands in their Omole estate, in Ikeja
abode and its environs in search of news
magazines with stories about his wife. Our
sources revealed that almost all the vendors
in the area have been detailed to keep him
posted anytime a magazine carries a story
The source added that at the rate the man
carries out his assignment, it is difficult to
say whether he has any other job he does
as diligent as this.
While a school of thought believes his latest
antics is to prove his love for his wife,
others believe he might just be sniffing
To support their claim, the latter believe he
does not have to read stories about his wife
on the pages of magazines to kill boredom
each time she hops off to movie location.
Talking to her on the phone is more than
adequate, they argue....

Although,it has been claimed that work
ethics and tight schedules of star actress
Kate Henshaw and her spouse Roderick
Nuttal contributed heavily to the crash of
their marriage,many are however laying the
blame on gossip and alleged dalliance of the
star actress which her enemies peddled to
According to them,in the last two
years,there had been allegations of the
actress being close to an unnamed
Ghanaian big boy whom they claim she was
also travelling to see in Accra.
Before that allegation however,there was
also this alleged romance with a popular
artiste who used to live in the Surulere area
Some other men that have been fingered in
relationship with the actress include the
Executive Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi
Amaechi, former Governor of Cross River
State, Donald Duke,comedian, Bright
Okpocha popularly known as
Basketmouth,and Ayo Sonaiya, Chief
Executive Officer of R70 Media amongst
Although these allegations were variously
denied,many believe they helped sow the
seed of discord that eventually broke the
once enviable union of the couple which
had endured an appreciable period of 12
Whilst Roderick James Nuttal’s friends are
pointing accusing fingers at Kate’s
highprofile lifestyle,Kate’s friends say Nuttal

For years now both have been living as
Now,they both live apart in Lekki.
There are those who say Rod may have

led to the collapse of his marriage to Kate.
We also gathered that Ella, the only product
of the union, is still in Kate’s custody as at

If some are fake, I’m not and you don’t

There is this allegation that there is sexual

Do you expect me to mention anybody’s

No, but the person insisted that I should

Do women harass men in Nollywood?
Yes, they do because a lot of confused girls
that came into Nollywood lately don’t know

show interest in them, they cry foul and say
that they are being harassed, yet they were
the ones harassing the men. They do it
because they are not ready to work hard
because you can not tell me every man is
harassing you sexually, so something must

Justin Bieber and Jaden Smith released a
new duet Friday -- a cover of "Thinking
About You" by Frank Ocean.
"I hope you like it," tweeted Smith, the 13-
year-old son of Hollywood power couple
Will and Jada Pinkett Smith.
Following in his father's footsteps, Smith
raps on the track while Bieber lends his
smooth vocals to the R&B tune.
Bieber, 17, and Smith released their first
musical collaboration "Never Say Never" in
2010 which served as the theme song for
"The Karate Kid" remake, starring Smith.
Smith's 11-year-old sister, Willow, has also
entered the music business with her single
"Whip My Hair."

LOS ANGELES -- Oprah Winfrey will return to
the airwaves in a weekly, primetime
program called "Oprah's Next Chapter" that
will air on her cable network, the channel
In the new series, the media mogul will step
"outside of the studio for some riveting,
enlightening in-depth conversations with
newsmakers, celebrities, thought leaders
and real-life families," according to a
statement from OWN: Oprah Winfrey
The program will premiere Jan. 1 at 9:00pm
ET with an in-depth conversation with
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler at his
home in New Hampshire.
Subsequent episodes in the show's first
season will feature Oscar winner Sean
Penn's humanitarian work in Haiti, a tour of
"Star Wars" creator George Lucas' ranch and
a look at chef Paula Deen's Georgia estate.
"After 25 years I got myself out of the
studio chairs. I moved into the next chapter,
and I am having more fun than ever --
moving around the country and the world
talking to people I'm really interested in
getting to know," Winfrey, 57, said.
In May, the talk show host stepped away
from her popular day time talk show to
focus her energy on her cable project -- a
joint venture with Discovery
Despite Winfrey's star power, the network
has been plagued with slumping ratings
that has left advertisers disappointed.
"I will say this; it's 10 times harder than
doing my daily show. Doing that show felt
like breathing every day. Now I'm in so
many meetings I sometimes have to step
out and catch a breath," Winfrey told her
followers in an August Facebook posting.
Onlookers had expected the OWN talk show
featuring Rosie O'Donnell, which launched
in October, to provide a surge of
enthusiasm but viewership has been
lackluster so far.
Then in early November, Winfrey's best
friend and business partner Gayle King,
announced she was leaving her OWN talk
show "The Gayle King Show" to join CBS'
revamped morning program that will also
feature veteran interviewer Charlie Rose.

Heavy D was
remembered with laughter and tears Friday
during a star-studded funeral service that
included Jay-Z and Will Smith, humorous
anecdotes from longtime friend Diddy, and
words of encouragement for his young
daughter, delivered in a letter from
President Barack Obama.
"We extend our heartfelt condolences at this
difficult time. He will be remembered for his
infectious optimism and many
contributions to American music. Please
know that you and your family will be in
our thoughts and prayers," read the Obama
note, according to the Rev. Al Sharpton, who
quoted from it during the service.
Xea Myers, Heavy D's 11-year-old daughter,
also spoke briefly, telling the audience that
her father was "still here, not in the flesh,
but in the spirit."
Grace Baptist Church was filled to capacity
for the two-and-half-hour service, which
was also streamed live on the Web. It was
so crowded, an overflow area was set up.
Among those in attendance were Usher,
Queen Latifah, Don King, Q-Tip, John Legend
and Rosie Perez.
"Silently he's been influential in a lot of our
careers," Usher said after the service. "His
love still lives on."

Heavy D died last week in Los Angeles at the
age of 44. His family said the death was due
to complications from pneumonia.
The self-proclaimed "Overweight Lover"
was born in Jamaica but reared in Mount
Vernon, which he dubbed "Money Earnin'
Mount Vernon." It was also the home of
Sean "Diddy" Combs. Diddy talked about
how Heavy D helped give him his start in
the music industry, and how their decades-
long friendship continued up until Heavy
"He became my friend. He became my
brother, and I'm not talking about friend-
brother like we cavalierly use the word, I'm
talking about a real friend, a real brother,"
Diddy said. "Somebody I shared my dreams
and my secrets with, somebody that's been
there for me at my lowest point, my darkest
hour when nobody wanted to be beside
But he also told jokes as he recounted his
"bromance" with the rapper, including a
recent visit to Miami that was supposed to
last for three days, but "turned into three
weeks." He added that Heavy D got to know
his chef "very well."
Sharpton also drew laughter when he noted
that James Brown "made us black and
proud; (Heavy D) made us fat and proud."
But singer Johnny Gill was tearful when he
approached the altar, saying: "Just want to
say to Heavy: job well done." He later gave a
powerful rendition the gospel hit "Never
Would Have Made It." Heavy D's nieces were
also teary-eyed as they sang the gospel
standard "His Eye Is on the Sparrow."

Heavy D, whose real name was Dwight
Myers, was influential in the development of
rap as it grew into a phenomenon in the
late 1980s and 1990s. His hits included
"Now That We've Found Love" and "Nuttin'
But Love"; much of his music marked the
"New Jack Swing" era in urban music, and
he stood out from the pack with his
rhymes, typified by a positive vibe and a
lightheartedness that endeared him to so
Salt, of Salt-N-Pepa, recalled touring with
Heavy D & the Boyz, and said the rapper
always told her: "I love you."
"He was a life-long buddy to me," she said
after the service. "Just now I realized how
many lives he touched."
A fund has been set up to financially aid
Heavy D's daughter; details were available

PARENTS of a four-year-old boy are waiting
anxiously to find out if he has been
infected with HIV following a sex attack by
a 15-year-old girl, a court heard.
The boy was playing in the yard of his
home with other children when the teenage
neighbour walked over and persuaded him
to go with her, prosecutor Sifiso Ndlovu told
the Bulawayo Magistrates’ Court.
Once at her home in Bulawayo’s
Gwabalanda suburb, the girl undressed, lay
on a bed facing upwards and forced the
boy to come on top her before molesting
Ndlovu told magistrate Fadzai Mthombeni
on Wednesday that the teenage neighbour
knew she was HIV positive before the
attack on the little boy.
She pleaded guilty to a charge of
aggravated indecent assault and deliberate
transmission of HIV – although tests so far
have shown the boy has not yet been
infected. HIV has an incubation period of up
to three months before it can be detected in
The magistrate ordered the girl indefinitely
detained at a young offenders’ institution. A
decision on which institution she will be
sent to will be made by the Juvenile Court in
terms of the Children’s Act.

"I'm not dating at all...I'm not necessarily
happy being single. It's not really that cool,"
the 23-year-old pop star said on Ellen
Friday. "It sucks, but it is what it is."
"My personal life is pretty much non-
existent," she added, "which is not good,
not for the long run. Not for me, not for
[my vagina]. It's not fun."
"That's why I stay on Twitter a lot, so I can
[talk] with my fans," she explained.
"Because I don't get any booty calls."
Since she's been busy promoting her new
album Talk That Talk, Rihanna hasn't had
much time to date. "I don't want to make it
seem like my work is my everything. I do
put a lot into my job. Most of my time, if
not all of it," she said. "But it definitely
affects my personal life."
Perhaps Rihanna is simply waiting for the
right man to take the lead.
"I like men who are more aggressive but
mysterious," she said. "I like them to be
sure of themselves and know that they're
the man. I'm the lady and the only way for
us to make this work is for us to play our
roles. You know, I can't really be the man
for you. I don't want to have to be. I'm the
man at work all the time."
