It seems as if The Game’s body is becoming a collage of different faces. Last night, the Game decided to include the face of Mandela on his collection of tattoos. Aside from Mandela, the Game’s body already has tattoos of President Obama and Trayvon Martin. After the rapper gets the tattoo, he quickly posted a photo of it on Instagram and posted:
“The finished “Nelson Mandela” lookin out of the prison bars by @NikkoHurtado done on my side. 7 hour sitting….”
“Few more hours to tie in the tats around it & we solid. #NelsonMandela #RIP #Legend #Leader #Freedom #Peace #Equality #Tattoos #SouthAfrica.”
The tattoo artist for his latest artwork was Nikko Hurtado who said:
“A good leader can engage in a debate frankly and thoroughly, knowing that at the end he and the other side must be closer, and thus emerge stronger. You don’t have that idea when you are arrogant, superficial, and uninformed.” #NelsonMandela Tattoo collector [The Game] In the arm pit area! Ouch.”
Isn’t it an artistic tribute to a great leader?
Oprah looked so happy as she welcomed the stars of “Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom” and “Fruitvale Station,” Idris Elba and Michael B. Jordan. Two of the famous Hollywood heartthrobs talked about their roles on the film as well as other personal things. Unfortunately, Idris Elba is already taken, but don’t be dismayed since Michael B. Jordan is still single and just experienced a breakup.
Idris Elba is expecting a baby; however he is also grieving for the loss of his father. He said:
“My dad passed in the last three months. It’s interesting because this film is in honor of my old man. He had lung cancer and he had it for a short period of time and I had been living in LA up to last year, and last year my dad got sick so I moved back to England so that I could be closer to him. We got him in the best health care we could but it had advanced so quickly that we didn’t know it. Africans think cancer is something that does not happen to us. My mother was like, ‘Cancer? no way… African people don’t get cancer!’”
Lately, Idris has been busy with the promotion of the Mandela film and he has not grieved properly for the death of his father. He revealed:
“I’m afraid I’ll probably fall apart to be honest. He was such a tough man. He would expect me to get on a bit. I’m human, I guess I should sit back.”
Oprah asked, “If you haven’t grieved have you at least made your peace with it?” He said:
“Not exactly.[...]I call my mom’s house, the answering machine is still my dad. The thing about his lung cancer is that it took his voice away when he was going but the answering machine is his full voice. Two things happen: I’m super sad when I hear that and I’m also really happy that it’s still there. It’s the only bit of his voice that I have as a reminder. It reminds me.”
Isn’t it so sad?

She revealed that early this year, one of her blood vessels exploded. Tamar explained that she did not let it heal that is why is has affected some of her performances, she said:
“I’m on the mend. Some days it’s just not there and it’s only because I didn’t give myself time to heal correctly. Like Ariana Grande, when our albums came out the same day around the same time, both of our blood vessels popped. I had it on both sides. She had it on one side. She took a break. Tay-tay went on the road! She just had a baby! She don’t live with her mama. Everybody wants their checks on the first so I went on the road. I didn’t allow myself time to heal therefore it’s going to take me longer.”
“I’m not ashamed [because] I can sing my face off. At the end of the day it’s there and I don’t have to prove anything to anybody. Whatever I had to prove, I have already proven to myself.”
Is she pushing it too hard?

Despite the fact that Ruben Studdard has lost some pounds, he is still considered as the adorable “Velvet Teddy Bear” of the American Idol. The singer recently dropped by at the Wendy Williams Show to chat about his huge weight loss. Surprisingly, he successfully dropped down from a weight of 462 lbs. to 358 lbs. Studdard was wearing a new suit and telling Wendy:
“[I have to] get rid of clothes. It’s kind of different going home and none of the clothes you are used to wearing fit, but it’s great because I love to shop.”
He also revealed the reason why he does not favor surgery in getting rid of those extra pounds, he said:
“I was raised to believe that I can do anything. That I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me and I stand firm on that belief. I feel like taking the easy route out is not something I should do. I should make sure I take responsibility for my health, and get in the gym and work it out.”
“I most certainly [have a goal weight.] I want to be at my physical best by my next birthday which is September 12, 2014. I’ve never seen that. I played football in high school and college, so I’ve been in shape but I’ve never seen my body at its best.”
Isn’t he looking good and healthy?

Despite the fact that Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom have decided to split they are still very much “united.” The couple separated last October but they still have love and care for each other. Their two-year-old son Flynn is the one that binds them together. Kerr and Bloom were married for three years before they decided to split. According to Miranda:
“It’s difficult for anyone to go through a separation, whether it’s on a public scale or not. It was important for us long-term to preserve our friendship and the dynamic of being loving parents to Flynn so we dealt with everything openly and honestly.”
She further added: “Flynn is the most important thing in both our lives. And because we share that bond, we both feel it’s important to be united.”
The 30-year-old model chose to remain in New York in celebration of the festive season so that their son Flynn will be closer to Orlando who is currently busy with his Broadway play ‘Romeo and Juliet’.
“I’m not coming home to Australia for summer because Orlando is working six days a week starring in ‘Romeo and Juliet’ on Broadway.”
“And it’s not fair to take Flynn and go without him. We’re trying to do our best to support each other.”
As of the moment, Kerr has been linked to billionaire James Packer while Orlando was recently spotted with Liv Tyler.
What a close bond, isn’t it?

Ben Affleck understands that he and his wife, Jennifer Garner are both famous Hollywood celebrities. However, the 41-year-old actor thinks that their children should not be part of media inquiry. The couple has three children, Violet, 8, Seraphina, 4 and Samuel who is only 21 months. During an interview he said:
“You can say what you want about me. You can yell at me with a video camera and be TMZ. You can follow me around and take pictures all you want. I don’t care. There are a couple of guys outside right now. Terrific. That’s part of the deal. But it’s wrong and disgusting to follow children around and take their picture and sell it for money.”
Affleck thinks that it is not right for the kids to be placed in the limelight. He admitted:
“My kids aren’t celebrities. They never made that bargain … As their father it’s my job to protect them from that stuff. I try my very best, and sometimes I’m successful. The tragic thing is, people who see those pictures naturally think its sweet.”
What do you think?
Should the paparazzi stop bothering these celebrity kids?

According to reports, the network has decided to decrease the number of episodes of ABC’s hit show, ‘Scandal‘. The original order was suppose to be 22 but it was reduced to 18. Now, you must be wondering why. Well, the network did not really give any explanation but some are speculating it’s because they want to hide the pregnancy of Kerry who incidentally plays the leading character of the show.
So far, there was no confirmation from Kerry or his husband with regards to the pregnancy. Kerry wants to keep her personal life private. After she got secretly married, she said:
“I’m walking around in the world with my ring. And when people say congratulations, I say thank you, but I’m going to continue to not talk about it and just let it unfold.”
The assumption about Kerry’s pregnancy started in September when she was spotted wearing a loose fitting gown during the Emmy’s.
What do you think? Is it because of Kerry’s pregnancy?
