Miss Universe 2011, Leila Lopes of Angola made her press rounds in New York for her first official duties as the newly crowned beauty queen. Her first stop was at the U.S. embassy to pick up her VISA so she can earn a paycheck and support her family while she's here.

Ms. Lopes was photographed with her mom and siblings at the poolside on Friday. Leila already seems wary of the swarming NY paparazzi.

Beyonce's sister Solange Knowles was spotted attending a party in West London early Friday morning. She rocked a curly afro wig from her sister's collection of exotic hair pieces and lacefronts and a canary yellow gown.

The Internet is buzzing about Lady Gaga's hair stylist suddenly quitting after accusing her of being a devil worshipper -- which is what everyone thought she was anyway. Michael Pooter, who cut Gaga's hair since January 2010, took his family and went into hiding after making some wild accusations about the pop star.

Pooter said he decided to quit because he couldn't take her staring at him anymore. He said in an interview for "Stylists of the Whores" magazine that when he confronted her about the staring, she told him she would eat his children if he ever told anyone

"She was usually liquored up on cheap whiskey when she came in for treatment. One day, when she was mumbling more than normal, which I found out later was her actually speaking in tongues, I saw the number 666 on her scalp and I quickly asked for God to protect me. She rose up out of her chair and floated 3 feet above the ground while yelling....."


Will these new revelations cause you to stop listening to her music? Or will you assume that her hair stylist is very likely a paranoid schizophrenic with religious persecutions?


Back in the '80s, before Chastity Bono thought she was a guy, she attended the same high school with a young Jennifer Aniston, who would later go on to achieve fame and glory as the star of a little TV show called Friends.

Both were students at the prestigious New York City High School Of Performing Arts in 1987, according to British tabloid The Daily Mail.

Aniston is now 42, with long blonde hair. And Bono, now 41, is no longer a lesbian after legally changing her gender to a male. Bono is one of the most controversial contestants on the 13th season ABC's Dancing With The Stars, which premieres Monday, Sept.19.

As you know by now, Rihanna's camp recently held an intervention of sorts for the singer in hopes of getting her off the substances she had become addicted to.

A source tells us the intervention was spearheaded by Rihanna's longtime personal assistant, Jennifer Rosales (pictured above). If you recall, it was Rosales who Rihanna called in a panic on that fateful night in 2009 begging her to contact the police after her then-boyfriend, singer Chris Brown, punched, kicked and bit her in a fit of rage.

Sources tell that the 23-year-old still smokes a little chronic here and there, but she has cut back drastically on "other drugs" including alcohol. The source says Rihanna has no coping skills, therefore, without the substances that she once used as a crutch, she has fallen into a deep depression.

Even her most loyal fans can tell the difference in the Bajan beauty's once bubbly personality.

In these paparazzi pics taken earlier today, Rihanna covered her face with Rosales's hoodie as she made her way through the airport at Sao Paulo, in Brazil where she has a concert on Saturday as part of her world tour. Observers said she looked "very tired" after her long trip from Los Angeles.

"Anything (To Find You)" wasn't working out for R&B Diva Monica Brown. So she just released a new track titled "Until It's Gone" that everyone is raving about.

When Barack Obama was sworn in as America's 44th president in 2009 he began earnestly pushing his green jobs and clean energy agenda.

In a speech at George Mason University in Virginia President Obama promised to "modernize 75 percent of federal buildings" and "improve the energy efficiency of two million American homes, saving consumers and taxpayers billions on our energy bills.”

Obama pledged strong backing for clean energy and the development of renewable energy technology -- bankrolled by taxpayer funded loans to the tune of billions of dollars.

In 2009 the Energy department -- with the blessings of President Obama -- doled out truckloads of cash to unproven and untested renewable energy companies such as Solyndra.

An early beneficiary of President Obama's clean energy initiative was George Kaiser, already one of the richest men in the country. Kaiser ran the now bankrupt solar-panel company Solyndra, which received a $535 million loan from the Obama administration in 2009.

It took a little more than a year for Solyndra to burn through $500 million with nothing to show for it.

Have you been experiencing headaches, dizziness, muscle cramps or unexplained hair loss lately? It could be the apple juice you're drinking, according to a nationally renowned TV doctor.

Television host Dr. Mehmet Oz has come under fire by the Food and Drug Administration for his claims that the apple juice we consume is dangerous for our health.

Dr. Oz announced on his TV show Wednesday that testing by a New Jersey lab found "troubling" levels of arsenic poison in many brands of the apple juice we drink.

The FDA loudly denied Dr. Oz's claims in press statements, which of course made headlines around the country. The resulting media coverage led some people to wonder if that glass of apple juice they drink every morning could really kill them.

"There is no evidence of any public health risk from drinking these juices. And the FDA has been testing them for years," the agency said in one press statement.
