According to rumors, Keri Hilson and Serge Ibaka have decided to call it quits.  During the red carpet of “About Last Night,” Keri was questioned about her plans for Valentine’s Day.  She quickly revealed that she replaced Serge with her music.  She said:

“This is going to be an interesting Valentine’s Day. That’s all I’ll say. It’s going to be interesting. I’m just busy, I’m busy. I feel like right now, music is my boyfriend. That’s how I feel, right now. So, I don’t know.”

Keri also provided an amazing advice to women with regards to relationships.  She admits that regardless if your boyfriend is a baller or not, women should not lower their standards.  Keri said:

“My number one relationship advice would be…know who you are. Never drop your standards for anyone. That’s it. And I mean that in every sense of the relationship, business, you know, whatever. If there’s a certain standard that you uphold and you’re so strong-minded about that. There are some things that you can tweak in a relationship, but not your standard. Not that.”

Will Keri’s next album talked about her heartbreak?

Moretz is letting everybody know that she is very family-oriented.  She said, “Never choose your friends over your family or a boyfriend or girlfriend over the family.  My mom has always taught us that blood is thicker than water. No one will ever understand the dynamic of your family. Ever.”

“We are the closest family ever and we are the most insane family ever. It may look weird to others, but to us, it’s life.”

The October issue of Seventeen will be available on September 17th.

Akim Camara, Rising Child Star

Akim Camara ----- Rising Star

Akim Camara  is a child violinist who is rising to fame. He was born October 27, 2001. Akim started playing at the age of two and took lessons at Marzhn-Hellersdorf School of Music under the instructor Birgit Thiele. At his early age, he was able to remember music that he heard and the names of all the orchestral instruments. Birgit was moved by Akim’s remarkable talent and “ear for music” that his teacher started working with the toddler, twice a week.

December 2003, Akim had his first performance at a Christmas concert that Marzhn-Hellersdorf School organized. Akim’s instructor and school principal, Gudrun Mueller, messaged Andre Rieu (the celebrity Dutch violinist) through his website. Andre responded by sending a camera crew to Berlin to film Akim at the concert. Andre was fascinated by Akim’s gift and asked his family to visit his studio in Kerkrade, Netherlands along with Akim. The three-year old’s performance at the studio led him to the opportunity to perform with Andre at Kerkrade’s Parkstad Limburg Stadion filled with 18,000 people.
