It is quite amazing that Nicki Minaj still finds time to throw a sweet 16 birthday party for her baby brother Micaiah.  Because of this gesture, she might be awarded with a “Best Sister Ever!” award.  On this very special day, she gave her baby brother a New York Knicks-themed cake.  In order to make the special occasion more extraordinary he managed to make her brother receive birthday messages from his favorites such as basketball players LeBron James, Chris Paul and others.

Minaj wrote:

“They can take it all. Just leave me with these two. Jelani, my big brother…. Love of my life. LOVE of my life. He’s not flashy so him “casually” showing off a Rolex made me crack up. Nothing else matters if u don’t have the ppl who hold your heart right by your side.”

“Thank u to Lil Wayne, Baby, Carmelo Anthony, Lebron James, Diddy, Chris Paul, Fab, Tyga, Mack, Tez, Gee Roberson, SB, Scoob, LaLa and Sherika for helping to make Caiah’s party even more special. U guys r simply amazing, humble and sweet. I’ll never forget it. Sometimes I have to remind myself of what’s “really” important. If u could only see how his face lit up when seeing these superstars. Lol. That’s all a big sister could ask for. Thank u. Love”

Isn’t it so sweet?

Tameka Raymond Tameka Raymond

Despite the fact that Tameka Raymond and her ex-husband Usher Raymond have two children, they spent their New Year in separate ways.  Tameka Raymond decided to celebrate her New Year’s as well as her 43rd birthday in Atlanta.  She was joined by her friends which includes Toya Wright, Monyetta Shaw, Tobey Renee Sanders plus many more.

It’s quite obvious that Tameka was enjoying herself despite the challenges that she had to face that involved her children.  A year and a half ago, Tameka’s 11-year-old son, Kile Glover died from a jet ski accident.  Back in August 2013, her 5-year-old son, Usher V, almost drowned in a pool while he was at Usher’s home.  Finally, to make matters even worse, the custody of her two sons, Usher V & Naviyd were given to Usher after the drowning incident.

On the other hand, Usher decided to spent his New Year in North Africa specifically in Morocco.  He was able to watch a cobra snake on the streets of Marrakesh.  He also gr the chance to do some shopping in Morocco and posted, “I’m different, yeah I’m different……..3 Chains”.

What can you say about their different New Year’s celebration?

Toya-Wright

Toya Wright was having a bad day after she was arrested on the day that her husband celebrated his birthday.  She was arrested in Atlanta due to parking tickets.  According to reports, she was driving down the College Park when she was suddenly being pulled up because of speeding.  The office took her into custody after finding out that she had a warrant of arrest.

On her Instagram, she wrote:

“Wow!!! It’s true I was jailed due to a old ticket that I thought I had taken care of but it was not. I try my best to take care of that sort of thing quickly but some how the ticket slipped through the cracks. I spent a day in jail and I must say that this experience was one of the most devastating of my life. I wouldn’t wish jail time for my worse enemy. Everyone that gets locked up isn’t a danger to the community. Many people that are in jail are just like me for a ticket that was either forgotten or thought to be taken care of. But the way most are treated is inhumane. I never thought in a million years that the kind of things I’ve witnessed went on. The situation was so bad that I don’t even want to leave out the house. After my ordeal I am seriously contemplating being an advocate of better treatment for prisoners. Please believe I’m working on my lightening up my lead foot and if I do mess up and get another ticket, that day it will be taken care of.”

“After being transported from one jail to another for a freaking traffic ticket. I met some cool and helpful cops at College park Jail. Thank you guys for being so sweet and helpful to me……What a way to celebrate my hubby’s bday.”

She also posted a special message to her husband, Memphitz, before she was arrested:

“Happy Birthday to a person that is not only my husband, but my best friend too….to the best husband in the world. I feel so blessed to have found true love in your arms. I feel so proud to call you my husband. May you be blessed with all that you have ever dreamt of today and always. I love you @billiondollarboybizz#mysag #love #TheWrights”

Isn’t it an awful day?

It is definitely the season for proposals.  After Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian just a few weeks ago during Kim’s birthday, this time its Future’s turn to proposed to Ciara.  According to Ciara’s publicist, the two are now engaged.  Today, Future gave Ciara a 15-carat ring just two days after Ciara turn 28.  Even if Ciara has not yet revealed the news to her fans but she tweeted:

“Today Has 2 Be Like One Of The Sweetest Days Of My Life! #TheBestBirthdayEver”

“If I’m Dreaming I Don’t Want To Wake Up..Aaaaaahhh!!!:)”

The 2013 BET Awards Future and Ciara

It seems that we already know that this would happen but we are not really certain when.  This summer, Future revealed that the first time that she saw Ciara; he wished that one day he could have her.  He said:

“I don’t get into nothing to get out. We haven’t set a date [but] this is the one. I said it before, I said it seven years ago, so for it to come around and happen, it was just meant to be.”

Last November, Ciara also expressed her wish to look for the one, she said:

“I really believe that love is everything. It is so necessary, without love you have nothing. You can’t live without love in my book and in my world.”

“I sacrifice pretty much all of my time for my career and there has to be a balance to it. What good is having success in your work but not being able to share it with someone? That’s not living to me. Having career success is important but having life success is even more important to me. Especially, now more than ever it’s a must.”

“I look ahead and I look forward to knowing who I am going to spend my life with. I can go rock the stage, but to know when I go home, my baby or my boo is waiting for me, that’s fun and that is the icing on the cake.”

Congrats to Future and Ciara!

When can we expect the pregnancy announcement?
