Bridal Fever! Kim Kardashian Preps for Wedding

Bridal Fever! Kim Kardashian Preps for Wedding

 Its everywhere now: Kim is soon gonna go crazy!!!

It’s official! Kim Kardashian has got her wedding on the brain; or at the very least, the honeymoon suite.

The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star, 33, who is set to wed Kanye West on May 24 in Paris, posted a couple of super sexy snaps to her Instagram account on Tuesday evening, where she is posing in what appears to be a white nightgown.

The stunning gown, which features a low cutout back and criss-cross satin panels atop an ornate peek-a-boo lace fabric, would be a perfect ensemble for the wedding night.

For the “impromptu photoshoot,” Kim wore her hair down in Veronica Lake-style curls and looked seductively over her shoulder at the camera.

She modeled against a wall of white roses, hydrangeas, and peonies, which was a Mother’s Day gift from her main squeeze.

Kim was obviously a huge fan of the fragrant present and gushed about it in her photo captions saying, “There’s a wall of roses in my backyard what else am I supposed to do ?!?#ImpromptuPhotoshoot,” and “Stop and smell the roses.”

Let’s hope the “Watch the Throne” rapper, 36, was the man behind the camera.

Snapping sultry pics isn’t the only way the reality star is prepping for her big day.

Earlier on Tuesday, the 33-year-old beauty took a couple photos of herself in a black sports bra, where you could see her taut tummy. She captioned the images, “Just finished my morning workout.” We can only imagine Kim has kicked her gym routine into overdrive as she preps for her nuptials in the City of Light.

Workouts, boudoir shoots, and only 10 days until her walk down the aisle? If it isn’t obvious already, Kim seems 100 percent ready to become Mrs. Kanye West.

Solange Knowles attacked Jay Z because of Rachel Roy

Posted:   05/14/2014 10:51:30 AM

Solange Knowles beat up brother-in-law Jay Z because he was being a bit too attentive to designer Rachel Roy at the Met Gala after-party on May 5, according to the New York Daily News.

Geez. Instead of Dobermans, they should have Solange patrolling the fence at Casa Carter

Before Knowles started whaling on Beyonce’s husband in an elevator, she reportedly yelled at Roy to keep her distance, sources said.

Knowles, 27, reportedly told the designer, “Anyone who gets close to Jay has to be warned and deal with her as a sister,” a source told US Magazine.

The rapper then told Knowles she was “out of line” for mouthing off to Roy.

That, obviously, was not the correct strategy. A source told the Daily News that triggered Knowles’ protective side.

“Rachel is a little too close to Jay Z,” the source said. “Solange doesn’t like it, and Beyonce doesn’t like it.”

Roy used to be married to Damon Dash, Jay Z’s former business partner.

Dash took to Instagram to stick up for Solange, calling her a unique soul. “I am actually impressed with her independent spirit, she seems like a fighter,” he said.


Roy reportedly didn’t respond well when Knowles told her she was “too close” to Jay Z, a source close to the scene said.

“Rachel is combative and a tough girl, she didn’t back down,” the source said.

Both Beyonce and Jay Z tried to intervene between Roy and Knowles at the Boom Boom room at The Standard hotel, and the three singers decided to leave. That’s when the beatdown was captured on a video camera in the elevator.


Beyoncé Addresses Solange Drama… Without Uttering a Single Word

Beyoncé Addresses Solange Drama… Without Uttering a Single Word

By terrylicious

3hours ago….

Photos of Beyoncé and Solange, which were posted by Bey,

on Wednesday (today). (Instagram)

Beyoncé loves Solange.

Bright and early on Wednesday morning, the singing superstar took to her favorite social media site, Instagram, and posted four photos of her with her little sis. Each one is a tender, sweet moment between the women, whose relationship is under a microscope following the now infamous Met Gala afterparty elevator fight.

“Good morning,” were the only two words Bey posted with the photos. She instead let the pics make her statement. The shots showed the sisters hugging on stage at Coachella last month, frolicking in the grass, side by side in the back of a car, and glammed up an event. They are smiling, happy, and affectionate in all four of them.



The photos are clearly some type of messages, but what? On Monday, footage was leaked of a nasty spat between Solange and Bey’s hubby, Jay Z, in an elevator at the Standard Hotel following a Met Gala afterparty on May 5. Because there was no audio on the surveillance footage, there has only been speculation over what exactly went down as Beyoncé appeared to stand there watching her sister and husband’s exchange. None of the parties have commented about the family drama. Then Tuesday, it was reported that Solange deleted all but one of the photos of her sister that she had on Instagram.

So it’s unclear whether Beyoncé posted these pics in an attempt to tell the world that things are fine between the Knowles sisters… or if it’s a public message to Solange.

The sisters have reportedly been together since the drama. Not only did they leave in the same car following the elevator eruption (Jay Z left in a second vehicle behind them), Us Weekly reports that Beyoncé and Solange were both at Kelly Rowland’s wedding in Costa Rica on Friday.

Meanwhile, Beyoncé and Jay Z have put on a united front, attending two Brooklyn Nets playoff games at Barclays Center on Sunday and Monday. They were all smiles and openly affectionate sitting courtside and rooting on the home team.

The mystery continues…

Boko Haram leader Shekau is dead say Nigeria officials, as nation rolls its eyes

Boko Haram leader Shekau is dead say Nigeria officials, as nation rolls its eyes

Published by terrylicious


Three weeks after hundreds of teenage girls were abducted while taking exams, it remains unclear how many girls were taken, who they are, who did it, at what time, and exactly how.

On the same day that a man looking nearly identical to Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau released a video of 100 girls kidnapped by his group – the official Nigerian response in the nation’s capital was to claim that Mr. Shekau is dead.

Actually, the government’s position is that Shekau has been dead for some time – a position widely seen here as a form of counter-propaganda designed to dispirit Boko Haram members.

“Boko Haram is a franchise,” Nigerian security spokesperson Marilyn Ogar told a room of local and foreign reporters here for the kidnapping story and who sought details about the video and its call to trade the girls for Boko Haram prisoners. “Anybody can assume any name. The person that is the National Leader of Boko Haram has just adopted the name Abubakar Shekau.”

Nigerian authorities also said today that its security forces are “interacting with experts … all over the world” to find the girls. Yet they remained unable to say how many girls were missing: “The federal government is setting up a committee” to find out the number, said one official in Abuja, Mike Omeri.

Such lack of information a month into the kidnapping of the girls as they were taking exams, combined with claims of Shekau’s death – viewed with skepticism – have fanned indignation at the government and brought ongoing protests.

Indeed, the story of the kidnapping of more than 200 Nigerian schoolgirls in mid-April continues to horrify the world. For all the urgent headlines and advocacy, however, what is still missing are basic facts. It is unclear how many girls were abducted, who they are, who did it, at what time, and exactly how – a dearth of solid information that has deepened the distress and anger in Nigeria and spurred global calls for action.

For starters, the number of girls taken away by the self-described Islamist radical Boko Haram and later rescued keeps changing.  First it was 129 girls rescued.  Then 121 were rescued and 8 were missing.  The next day, none had been rescued at all. No collective set of photos of the girls appears to exist, or even all their names (some websites with photos of the girls have used photos lifted from elsewhere).

A week ago, police stated that 276 girls remain missing and 53 escaped on their own accord.  This number could change again, according to the police commissioner of Borno State in the northeast, which is the heart of the Boko Haram insurgency.

“It is really difficult to say the actual number of girls that were abducted,” said Commissioner Tanko Lawan. He says the numbers are hard to compile since  students from many schools were taking their exams at the Chibok school “due to the peculiar security challenges in Borno State,” he said.

Nor is much known about how hundreds of girls were taken and when. One newspaper quoted escaped girls that said the attack took place at dawn. In others, girls said it was at 11 p.m.  Amnesty International says the attack took place at “in the small hours of 15 April,” after a gun battle with local security forces. That report only came yesterday, May 9.

“I think there’s a bit of insincerity in the system,” said Ade Ogundeyin, the CEO of Proforce, a Nigerian security company.  “You can’t tell me that 200 and something girls got move to a particular location and nobody [from the military] saw them?  It’s a confusing situation.”

Which leads to the next unknown: Why was this school opened for exams, given the deep insecurity in the area?

Again, government and local officials and newspapers have given conflicting accounts. The slaughter of many school children in the northeast, reported for nearly a year, had prompted most schools in the northeast to close.  Mausi Segun of Human Rights Watch suggests that education authorities may have decided to open this one school so that girls from a number of schools in the area could take their final exams and later have a better chance at “employment … in cities like Lagos.” Yet such an opening would have been a widely known event, making the school a potential target.

Perhaps most frustrating for Nigerians is the absence of information on rescue efforts. Few facts are forthcoming, and the Nigerian military maintains it would compromise their efforts if they reported details to the public.

But Nigerians want an explanation, for example, as to why local people say they have seen the girls traveling in the countryside – and this under the extreme crackdown known as emergency rule – but that the military has not given details nor staged a rescue.

It is widely believed that Boko Haram is responsible for the kidnapping because no other group in Nigeria has the capacity or the motivation to carry out such an attack. The group has killed thousands of adults and children and has previously abducted women to work as porters, spies, cooks, or sex slaves.

Boko Haram has also taken responsibility for the kidnapping, saying the girls are being held as slaves and will be sold as wives. In a video distributed to reporters on Monday, a maniacal-appearing Boko Harm leader, Abubakar Shekau, rails against the government and threatens to force girls as young as nine years old to marry.

In the video, however, there are no girls. That in itself is somewhat unorthodox: In the past, terrorists showed images of hostages to prove the truth of their claims.

Why Mr. Shekau waited three weeks to claim the act is unclear, though some speculate that Boko Haram is so unstructured and diffuse that he may not have known which faction was responsible. And the only hard evidence that Abubakar Shekau is even the leader of Boko Haram is that he says so.  This is a man who threatened to kill former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher from his hideout in northeastern Nigeria more than six months after she died.

But one further fact is not in dispute: With every day that passes without the return of the girls, the fear for their lives becomes greater, and the despair in Nigeria is palpable. Frustration was deepened by a report that the military did not respond to warnings that Boko Haram was about to attack Chibok.

At a protest this week in the capital, Abubakar Sani, a civil servant and a father, sat quietly on the sidelines while the crowd sang: “All we are saying is ‘Bring back our girls. Alive. Now.”

“It’s something that can happen to anybody,” said Sani. “It’s necessary that we come out and demonstrate so the government will know how we feel

Kelly Rowland and Tim Witherspoon

Kelly Rowland is officially a married woman! The Destiny’s Child singer wed her manager and boyfriend Tim Witherspoon on May 9 in Costa Rica, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly.

The 33-year-old singer was reportedly joined by pal Beyonce and her sister Solange for the big day. (The duo jetted off in a private plane after their Met Gala drama, where Solange physically attacked Jay Z in an elevator.

“It was a quick, simple ceremony — only around 30 people,” a source tells Us of the nuptials.

Beyonce took to her Instagram the same day to share a shot of herself in what appeared to be a bridesmaids dress, captioning the photo with a mere: “Good morning.”

The “Kisses Down Low” singer confirmed the duo’s engagement back in December 2013 during an appearance on The Queen Latifah Show. “He put a ring on it,” she admitted, adding, “It’s been a while. We’ve kept it very, very low — for years, to be completely honest.”

Rowland added he proposed on Skype! “It was so late — we were just staring at each other,” she said of the moment before he popped the question.

This is the first marriage for the singer, who was previously engaged to football player Roy Williams but split in January 2005.

Lea Michele Risks Wardrobe Malfunction, Nearly Pops Out of Her Plunging Dress

Talk about your close calls!

Lea Michele nearly risked a wardrobe malfunction while making her way to the 2014 Fox Upfronts in New York City on Monday.

Decked out in a very low-cut green dress, the Glee gal almost left absolutely nothing to the imagination as she crossed the street and inadvertently offered up some side boob in the process.

Of course, had anything actually popped out, it would have marked the 27-year-old brunette beauty’s second nip slip in as many months. (Not that we’re keeping track, mind you. OK, fine, maybe just a little.)

VIDEO: Lea Michele responds to Glee feud rumors

In April, while shooting the music video for the single “On My Way,” Michele’s right breast accidentally became exposed.

But she was apparently unfazed by it as she later shared more than a dozen behind-the-scenes pictures with fans via Instagram.

Meanwhile, Michele’s new book, Brunette Ambition, was released today.

In it, she shares intimate life stories and motivational advice, as well as covering everything from her fashion tips and skincare rituals to her fitness routine and favorite recipes.

#BringBackOurGirls — How You Can Help

Queen Latifah - #BringBackOurGirls

Nearly 300 Nigerian high school girls still remain missing after they were brutally kidnapped by extremists last month. Many reports indicate these young women were sold to be brides for as little as $12.

Concern has swelled on social media around the world, and the phrase #BringBackOurGirls, the hashtag for the campaign to rescue the girls, has been tweeted over a million times. The outrage at the girls’ kidnapping and violence of human trafficking has spurred regular people to find more information on how to help, hoping to prevent tragedies like this in the future.


Take to social media

“The campaign has helped to galvanize action within the country and has raised tremendous international media attention,” the Human Rights Watch said in an email to ABC News. The hashtag #BringBackOurGirls has “fast became the symbol of the people’s anger and frustration for the perceived ineffectual handling of the situation by the government.” UNICEF is encouraging people to continue using the hashtag in order to gain more media and government attention on the present kidnapping, and then to get involved in their End Trafficking project to help put a stop to human trafficking.

 Justin Bieber Being Investigated for Attempted Robbery
posted by terrylicious 14-05-2014

Just in case you were wondering, loves, Justin Bieber is still an out-of-control douche. I hearthat the LAPD is currently investigating him for attempted robbery after he tried to steal a woman’s phone.

The incident occurred at a mini-golf course in Sherman Oaks, CA, where Justin and his crew got into a scuffle with some bros at the batting cages. Because of course they did. GOD FORBID he can go anywhere without his thug entourage starting a fight. But JB thought that a lady was snapping pic of the melee on her cell, and stalked over to confront her.

justin bieber

The woman claims that when she refused to give Justin her phone, he reached into her purse and grabbed it, prying it from her hand. Because of course he did. Then he became enraged when the phone was locked and he couldn’t access her pictures.

“She says she told Justin she and her 13-year-old daughter just wanted to say hi,” tattles my spy.  “But Justin screamed, ‘You’re humiliating yourself in front of your daughter. Why don’t you just get out of here.’”

The 13-year-old then started to cry (I’d weep too being so close to such rampant idiocy) then Justin turned and started screaming at someone else.

"Justin Bieber's Believe" World Premiere

You know darlings, I’ve oft compared Justin to a real-life King Joffrey and if (spoiler alert, sorry) Game of Thrones can nix that character then can’t we somehow rid ourselves of JB IRL? If you have any ideas for how to achieve a Bieber-free America, I’m all ears…. #kisses#

Solange Knowles Deletes All Beyoncé Photos From Her Instagram Account but……

Solange Knowles Deletes All Beyoncé Photos From Her Instagram Account—All but One, That Is:

Solange, Beyonce, Instagram Instagram

They say sometimes actions speak louder than words.

Well, that may very well be the case when it comes to Solange Knowles‘ decision to delete virtually all photos of big sister Beyoncé from her Instagram account in the wake of a video that surfaced on Monday showing what appears to be Solange physically attacking brother-in-law Jay Z in an elevator.

What’s interesting, as the website SheKnows pointed out, is the fact that Solange did leave one pic up of herself happily posing with Beyoncé and a friend from 15 months ago with the caption “Girls moment.”

Of course, whether that was intentional or simply an oversight remains unclear.

The fight in question was recorded May 5 at the Standard Hotel after the 2014 Met Gala in New York City. The footage shows a large man, presumably a bodyguard, restraining the aggravated woman. But the female (purportedly Solange), still manages to land a few punches and high-heeled kicks on a man in a tux.

The man under attack (who appears to be Jay Z) holds the woman’s foot to prevent her from kicking him further, but at no point attemps to strike her back.

A woman resembling Beyoncé watches nearby.

Following the video leak, the Standard Hotel released a statement, vowing to take action for the security breach.

“We are shocked and disappointed that there was a clear breach of our security system and the confidentiality that we count on providing our guests,” the hotel said in a statement obtained by E! News. “We are investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation and, as is our customary practice, will discipline and prosecute the individuals involved to our fullest capacity.”
