British singer Adele tweeted this pic on her official Twitter page yesterday. When Adele was riding high, her Twitter page was maintained by her record label. But Adele took it over now that she has nothing else better to do after having throat surgery.
Adele's critically acclaimed 2nd studio album, 21, is the one of the biggest-selling albums of the decade. But don't look for another album from Adele for at least a couple of years.
Adele's signature vocals is unnatural for her and puts a strain on her golden pipes, causing bleeding inside her vocal cords.
Surgical intervention for vocal cord hemorrhage is usually the last resort when nothing else will stop the bleeding. This means Adele is susceptible to future episodes of vocal cord bleeding. She must either alter the way she sings or she will never sing again.
Floyd Mayweather loves to brag about his unlimited supply of cash and his million-dollar collection of flashy jewelry and timepieces. But the boxing champ won't be able to take any of that with him where he's going.
Yesterday a judge sentenced Mayweather to 90 days in jail for beating down his baby mama in front of their kids in September 2010. Mayweather, who thought he was untouchable until yesterday, will be given credit for 3 days served, but he will have to do 87 days of hard time behind bars.
When the judge announced Mayweather's sentence, his knees buckled and his eyes blinked rapidly as if he was fighting back tears. He turned and looked at his high-priced attorneys who can't save him. Celebrity gossip blog TMZ.com reports that Mayweather was sentenced to 6 months in jail, but 3 months of that sentence was suspended.
The judge was especially perturbed that the cowardly Mayweather threatened to beat his children who begged him to leave their mother alone.
The judge also ordered Mayweather to pay a $2,500 fine, complete 100 hours of community service and enroll in a 12-month domestic violence program.
Floyd has until January 6 to turn himself in to prison -- where Bubba awaits.
Take a peek at some of Mayweather's ostentatious bejeweled watch collection after the break.

Just as we suspected: those pics of a bloated, baby whale Beyonce shopping at Bergdorf Goodman were not her. As you can see from the pics below of Bey shopping at Curve in NYC, her nose is not spread across her face, and she hasn't picked up a pound anywhere other than her midsection.
In her shameless, never-ending campaign to stay relevant, Beyonce covers this month's issue of Jones Magazine. Her baby bump is not visible in this cover shot, meaning she removed her prosthetic -- or she knew she was going to be pregnant when these pics were taken. It's interesting that she's talking about motherhood when she isn't even pregnant in these pics!
“I believe that parents prepare their kids for the moment that they’re on their own: at this point, I am taking everything my dad and my mother have taught me, and I’m able to do things my way,” she says.
The cover was shot on the terrace of the Maurice in Paris, France by photographer Greg Gex.
In episode 6 of VH1's reality TV series 'Love & Hip Hop' Jim Jones' fiancee, Chrissy Lampkin, 40, goes awf on him for purchasing a new ride when she's still waiting on him to pop that question.
"There's a foreign car in my driveway! What is it doing here?," she snaps at him.
“If a car was at the top of your to-do list, it’s time for me to be realistic with where Jimmy’s head is,” the long-suffering, commitment-ready Chrissy Lampkin says when Jim brings home a brand new car instead of, say, an engagement ring for her, in this exclusive sneak peek of next week’s Love And Hip Hop. Watch Chrissy kill Jim’s new car buzz as soon as he rolls in the driveway, telling him “I don’t want to see this car. I want it out of my driveway.” When he offers to park it around the corner (oh, Jimmy, you so aren’t getting it) she tells him “And that’s where I’ll have your mail sent too.”
And this scene is just the tip of the iceberg — this episode is quite possibly the most explosive one yet, trust us when we say that you’re not going to be able to tear yourself away from the screen on Monday. Tune in at 8 p.m. ET/PT to see what we mean. Source

According to a well-placed source at Bad Boy Records, rap mogul Sean Combs really is dating actress Cameron Diaz. As you know, Ms. Diaz has run through every available male bachelor in Hollywood. So it should come as no surprise that she's sampling the dark meat.
The couple continue to insist that they're "just friends", but they were seen tonguing each other down inside the Dream Downtown Hotel in New York last weekend. The 39-year-old actress and the 42-year-old rapper were caught 'making out like teenagers', according to Life and Style magazine.
This isn't the first go-round for Diddy and Cameron. People.com reports that Sean and Cameron first got together back in 2008 after meeting at the Oscars. But Cameron reportedly told Sean to get back to her when he loses his old baggage, aka Kim and Cassie.
My source tells me Mr. Combs is "getting serious" about Ms. Diaz, whom he has a cute pet name for and everything. "Getting serious" is code for making sure Cassie doesn't pop up whenever Cameron is around.
My source says he hasn't seen Sean's other concubines, Kim Porter and Cassie, around Sean's NY digs "in a while". He says Cassie has gone back into the studio to revive her recording career because she sees the writing on the wall and she's tired of being Sean's "rebound chick."
The lovely Paula Patton stopped by 'The Today Show' in NYC to promote her movie 'Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol' this morning. It must be hard on Robin Thicke to be known more for being Paula's husband than his music. I couldn't name one song he sings, but I know who his gorgeous wife is.

The Sun Times reports that 21-year-old Andre Curry was taken into custody yesterday and charged with aggravated domestic battery after he posted a photo on Facebook of his daughter bound with duct tape.
Chicago police have been investigating the incident since being notified of the photo on Dec. 14, spokesman Michael Sullivan said.
DFACS has also confirmed they are investigating the child cruelty aspects of the case. DFACS has had no prior contact with the family.
Curry, of the 6100 block of South Racine Avenue in Chicago, posted the photo on Facebook in July, along with the caption "this is wut happens wen my baby hits me back". The baby girl, who appears to be about 2, has duct tape on her mouth, and bound tightly around her wrists and ankles.

Eddie Murphy's ex-wife, Nicole Murphy, is a the victim of a suave con artist who walked away with a cool $7 million -- half of Nicole's settlement in her divorce from Murphy. According to published reports, Troy David Stratos, was arrested early Tuesday in Southern California and charged with 11 counts of wire and mail fraud, two counts of money laundering and one count of obstruction of justice.
Stratos, who changed his name from Stafford, is reportedly one of Nicole's old high school boyfriends. That explains why she put so much trust in him.
The indictment claims Stratos persuaded Nicole to invest the proceeds of her big-money divorce overseas, where she would earn a higher rate of return. He also convinced Nicole to put her Granite Bay, CA house up for sale. Stratos told her he had wealthy Middle Eastern royal families who were interested in buying the house.
He talked her into leasing luxury Rolls-Royce and BMW automobiles to make the property look more attractive. Stratos told Nicole, who wasn't named in the indictment, that he would include the cars with the sale of the house as a package deal.
But investigators say there were no Middle Eastern investors, and the con artist never put the house up for sale. Instead, Stratos secretly moved into the house and drove the luxury cars as if they were his.
Thom Mrozek, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney in Los Angeles, said Stratos has agreed to be returned to Sacramento to face the charges. He is currently being held without bond pending a bail hearing scheduled for Wednesday.
Last night, rapper T.I. (above left), his wife Tiny (far right) and his family gave back to the community at the Carrie Steele-Pitts Center in Atlanta. To kick the night off, the family acted out a play that was written by T.I.'s oldest son Messiah, 11. The whole family donned full troll costumes, and after the play T.I. changed into a Santa Clause outfit and passed out toys to the children.
The elaborate troll costumes were Messiah's idea. He is pictured above with his beautiful mom, @LashonDixon, who is also mom to rapper Domani Harris, 10. All of the Harris children participated in the play! Gifts were handed out to the excited neighborhood children after the play. The gifts included toys, clothes, jackets, shoes, backpacks that were purchased by T.I., his K.I.N.G. Foundation and his record label Grand Hustle.
Tiny Harris and son, Major, 3. She was dressed as Queen of the Trolls. See more pics after the break, and on ExclusiveAccess.net!

The editor-in-chief of Jackie magazine, which referred to troubled singer Rihanna as a "Niggabitch", has stepped down.
Eva Hoeke cited the relentless attacks from Rihanna's Stans on social media as the reason for her departure. She explained that she used the term "Niggabitch" to describe the ultra slutty personal style that was influenced by Rihanna herself. Hoeke points out that the term was imported from America where we in the black community routinely use "nigga" and "bitch" as terms of endearment.
But since when does a journalist (or blogger) let Stans influence what they write? The article obviously was not a personal attack on Rihanna. Oh, I forgot, Freedom of Speech is only upheld as a constitutional right here in America.
If Rihanna wants respect maybe she should start by respecting herself?
Because of the enormous pressure from social media, I can promise improvement in terms of language used in future issues of Jackie.
Previously, I offered rectification. As I now come to the conclusion that rectification is not the right solution, I am departing.
"The term 'nigga bitch" has come over from America and we have only this to describe this particular style of clothes that we can try to interpret.
"After eight years, with my heart and soul, I have worked for Jackie. I realize that these errors - although no malicious intent - is a reason to leave."
An anonymous reader sent in these pics of Beyonce shopping for baby girl clothes at Bergdorf Goodman yesterday. The images appear to be screen captures from a video monitor. The reader was shocked to see how much weight Beyonce had gained in just a matter of days. But we're not surprised because Beyonce will go to any lengths to fool the public into believing she's pregnant. It is already a foregone conclusion that Beyonce is not pregnant -- but her surrogate is. If and when Beyonce "delivers" her "baby", it won't be in a legally sanctioned hospital or clinic. And the "doctor" who delivers the "baby" will be on Jay Z and Bey's payroll.
