miley-cyrus-rolling-stone-1

Miley Cyrus goes naked in the cover of “Rolling $tone” magazine.  The 20-year-old singer also has topless photos on the pages of the magazine.  Miley revealed her reaction to her controversial performance during the VMA.  She said:

“No one is talking about the man behind the ass. It was a lot of ‘Miley Twerks on Robin Thicke,’ but never, ‘Robin Thicke Grinds Up on Miley.’ So obviously there’s a double standard.”  She also had a talk with Kanye West before the VMA started:

“He came in and goes, ‘There are not a lot of artists I believe in more than you right now.’  The whole room went quiet. I was like, ‘Yo – can you say that again?!’  I just kept repeating that over and over in my mind, and it made me not nervous.”

What is her relationship with Kanye?  Miley said:

“Kanye is the shit,” she says. “I kind of have a good relationship with him now. It’s good to have someone you can call and be like, ‘Yo, do you think I should wear this?’ ‘Do you think I should go in the studio with this guy?’ ‘Do you think this is cool?’ That’s what homies are supposed to do.”

What can she say about twerking?

“People are like, ‘Miley thinks she’s a black girl, but she’s got the flattest ass ever,’” she says. “I’m like, I’m 108 pounds! I know! Now people expect me to come out and twerk with my tongue out all the time. I’ll probably never do that shit again.”

Scarlett Johansson

As a child, Scarlett Johansson revealed that she had experienced being refused by a talent agent and she quickly presumes that her movie career has ended before it had even begun.  The talent agent was introduced to her by one of her brother’s classmates.  When she was interviewed by director Darren Aronofsky, the star of Avengers explained:

“My brother did Little League (baseball), and I took acting and singing and tap and all that. There was someone in my older brother’s class who was doing some commercials and theatre, so my mum took me to that kid’s agent because I loved musicals. They didn’t want me, though. I was devastated. I thought it was the end of my career.”

Eventually when she was already nine years old she made her debut in the movie “North” and she played the role of John Ritter’s daughter in 1994.

She further added:

“I got a 1080 (on her SAT college admissions test), which was pretty low. But that was probably because I didn’t answer half of the math questions. I didn’t get into NYU’s film school. I still have the rejection letter.”

Tami

Tami Roman, the star of Basketball Wives recently did an interview with New York radio show, Hot 97.  What can she say about the real issue she had with Evelyn?  She said:

“With this seaosn I don’t think we really had an issue….I think that you call me a bitch and you put your hand in my face…coupled those together that’s a problem for me. I feel lke you’re coming for me…and I’m not a child.”

Did she regret being on reality TV?  Tami revealed:

“I do not have one single regret…Coming onto the Real World I’m just the person that tries to be as transparent as I can be. I feel like I’m putting my story out there. I use the show as a mirror and I work on Tami…You’re mistakes are your best teachers.”

What is her new book Mistresses 101 all about?  The reality star said:

“I have a book coming. It’s called Mistresses 101 and it’s about women and their relationships and how they can keep them…Because I’ve talked to mistresses. I’m not that type of chic. Because I’ve been through a relationship and I thought I was the perfect mate, but clearly there were some things within me…I’m not that chic in my relations. I will not put my hands on you but I was cut the f*ck outta your tires.”

nicki minaj

Ellen DeGeneres was shocked when Nicki appeared on her show while wearing a jacket without any bras.  Nicki said, “I don’t wear bras. I hate bras. Bras are the devil!!!”

Ellen asked her why nobody was surprised when she did some twerking, she said:

“I don’t know. It’s the white girl thing. No, seriously, it’s like if a white girl does something that seems to be like black and then black people think ‘Oh, she’s embracing our culture’ so they kinda ride with it and then white people think ‘Oh, she must be cool because she’s doing something black’ so it’s weird. But if a black person do a black thing, it ain’t that popping. [Laughs] It’s clearly obvious Ellen. I’m serious.”

What can she say about American Idol?  Nicki responded:

“You said that it was going to be a very difficult job and I laughed you off. I was like, ‘Ha ha ha Ellen, you don’t know what you are talking about!’ But, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. It was a great learning experience, honestly. Literally as soon as Idol was done, I did the Billboard Awards and then I flew to New York to shoot a movie. I didn’t even get to sit back and think, ‘What did I just do?’ It kind of happened so quick and then it was over.”

Is she interested in doing American Idol again?  Nicki said, “No.”

Rihanna-Glamour-Magazine-2

Aside from being busy with the promotions of her new products, Rihanna also appeared on the cover of the November 2013 Glamour Magazine.  She also visited the BBC Studios in London to do an interview with Alan Carr.

When asked if her Instagram selflies are being airbrushed, she laughed and said, “Nooo.”

What are the things that RiRi enjoyed the most about the carnivals in Barbados?  She replied:

“Barbados carnival is a part of our culture and that’s how we dress, in as little as possible… and we just party. Party for miles on the road. We get a truck and then we get off and on and we… It’s fun. You just party for hours. All day long.”

Is she unhappy on how people see her?  She said:

“It doesn’t piss me off because they don’t know me so well, so it’s easy for them to draw conclusions and its their right to. How can they know anything different? But I tried to be as honest with myself as possible. Be realistic with who I am and what I love to do and what makes me happy. And it’s not always partying, as a matter of fact, recently I’ve become like a square. I hate partying. I’ve been so bored with it. Maybe it’s because its the same music every night. I don’t know, y’all feel me? I don’t know, maybe we need some more DJ’s or something.”

brandi-glanville

Brandi Glanville revealed there is more pain than dealing with her divorce from Eddie Cibrian.  During her interview with Bethenny Frankel , the star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she felt more pain when she saw a photo of her kids with their stepmother on social media.  She said, “It’s the worst pain you could ever imagine.  You think your heart is broken after you get a divorce? Wait until there is a girl tweeting pictures of, ‘Oh, look at my family.’ You have no idea.”

Brandi further added:

“I feel like she almost does it to antagonize me, but at this point I’ve accepted it.  It took me awhile, but Xanax was my friend when that started happening. I was like, ‘You can have the man, but those are my babies.’”

Glanville and Cibrian separated in 2009 after being together for 7 years.  They split because Cibrian had an affair with Rimes.  Glanville revealed to Frankel that Cibrian has changed, she said:

brandi-glanville2

“You know, I think he’s actually become a much better father through divorce.  Because when we were together, he wasn’t home a lot, he didn’t spend a ton of time with the kids, and now he’s really present. That’s the one positive I take away from it because the rest freaking sucks.”

rihanna-and-teyana-taylor2

After Rihanna and Teyana Taylor had a beef on twitter, petitions were launched.  The petitions were intended to remove the two singers from their endorsements.  Here is Teyana’s petition:

“Miss Taylor first (before the image above) started sending abusive and offensive tweets/retweets to Rihanna for over a period of 8 hours. This is not about RIHANNA, this is about all the ABUSED WOMEN of the world being MOCKED! IT IS A SHAME that ADIDAS seems to be endorsing @TEYANATAYLOR!”

“We demand that you do the right thing and terminate her contract and send a strong message to your consumers! Letting one of your sponsors mock a domestic violence victim discourages your female customers from speaking out against their abusers!!!”

Below is Rihanna’s petition:

“Rihanna has many young fans that look up to her and bullying is a HUGE problem that we are facing with the youth today.  She is known for constantly bullying and picking fights with people over the internet and this is a problem that has been going on for a while now.  By consistently attacking people online about their looks and reminding them how they are beneath her, she is using her platform in a very negative light and does not provide a positive image for MAC cosmetics or any of the other companies that she endorses.  She is a poor role model and promotes habitual drug use.  Rihanna openly smokes marijuana and no doubt has encouraged her fans to do so as well.  Due to the behavior that Rihanna is exhibiting, her fans and followers have made death threats and are also exhibiting bullying behavior.  This is important b/c Rihanna continues to lead the young women of America down a dark path.  She continues to demonstrate destructive behavior to the young girls of this great United States of America by using her huge platform for negativity as opposed to promoting female empowerment and uplifting our young ladies.  Because she has such a huge influence over so many, as a result of her bullying and verbal abuse it has encouraged her followers to do so as well.   There have been many death threats from people that are a part of her social media gang that she refers to as “The Rihanna Navy”.  At a simple request from her, they will pounce on anyone that Rihanna wants to bring her wrath down upon.  She is definitely a cyber-bully as evidenced by her Twitter attacks on Ciara, Karruche Tran and Teyana Taylor, just to name a few.   These attacks can do harm to a person’s self-esteem and can lead to things such as depression and suicide which happens to be an ongoing epidemic in our country amongst teenagers, especially young girls.  As someone who knows a person who took their life due to bullying, this not only destroys the life of the person who killed themself, it also changes the lives of the family of the person doing the bullying.  Continuously creating a negative cycle that will repeat itself.  The effects of cyber-bullying will stunt the growth of our beautiful nation by weakening the psyche of the women of tomorrow who will lead us into the next century.  Is this someone who you want representing your brand?  It’s time that Rihanna learns that bullying is UNACCEPTABLE and will not be tolerated!”

Do you agree with these petitions?

Keyshia_Cole

Keyshia Cole has reconciled with her sister Neffe.  It all started when Neffe showed her support to her sister and brought her new shoes.  A photo of the two was posted by Instagram user Rob Hatcher with the message:

“This moment made my day!! @IAmNeffeteria & @KeyshiaCole #SistersForever #TogetherAgain #stevemaddencollection Neffe came to support & congratulate her sister & bought a pair of these bangin shoes!!! #GoKeyshia”

Neffe also posted her own message on Twitter:

“You cannot separate #Blood it’s infused with love, power,& the ability 2 move on 2 what God has 4 his children!”

Last January, Keyshia called Neffe a leech on Twitter.  The two siblings have not spoken ever since.  An intervention from Oprah and Iyanla could be a great help.  However, it did not get that far because they are now talking again.  It’s nice to see that they are now in good terms.

Kanye-paparazzi-1

Kanye got mad after discovering that his house was surrounded by paparazzi at 4 o’clock in the morning.  One photographer approached him and asked, “Good Morning Kanye.”   Yeezy replied back by saying, “Shut the f–k up!” But the photographer continued to ask, “Do you have anything to say about Jimmy Kimmel?”  Kanye quickly snapped:

“Don’t say anything to me. Stop asking me questions. You’re out in front of my house at 4a.m. asking me questions like, ‘How’s it going?’ It’s not going good. Y’all are here, trying to make money off of us. That’s how it’s going. It’s 4a.m., you ask me how it’s going. You know I don’t want you to say nothing to me. Respect that.”

Kanye further added:

“Shut the fu-ck up, it’s 4am, you blood-sucking mosquito! You want me to stand outside of your house at 4am?”

miley cyrus

Miley Cyrus revealed that last February, she wanted to write a song about breaking up with her fiancé, Liam Hemsworth.  The title of the new song was “Drive” and it talks about ending her relationship which is quite emotional.  The 20-year old singer said, “I wrote it while I was working on Valentine’s Day — emotionally it was such a hard time.”

“It is about needing to leave someone but not really wanting to completely cut yourself off from the relationship. It’s a time when you want to leave but you can’t.”

Cyrus felt that she was being deceived by Hemsworth due to infidelity rumors.  On Sept. 16, the singer broke her engagement with the “Hunger Games” actor.

There were rumors that the reason for the split was the most talked about performance of Cyrus on VMA.  However, according to sources Cyrus felt that she had enough of Hemsworth’s unfaithfulness.  After the two split, Hemsworth was spotted together with Mexican actress Eiza Gonzalez.
