Tiara Thomas and Wale

Singer Tiara Thomas, best known for her duet with Wale on his single "Bad", explained how the groupie anthem came about.

“I was in Atlanta with one of my friends I went to school with; she was my manager at the time. She’s like,’Hey, let’s go to Atlanta for spring break, just to go somewhere,’ Thomas recalls. We went and I had a fake ID. I was under 21 at the time and we just wanted to go to the club. So we went to the club and Wale was there. It was like, ‘Hey, there’s Wale, let’s take a picture with him.’ Wale listened to it, and he really liked it,”

Lil Wayne Epileptic

Rapper Lil Wayne is attempting to deflect rumors of his alleged drug use by claiming to be an epileptic. Epilepsy can be an acute (new) or chronic (longstanding) disruption of signals in the brain that results in controlled or uncontrolled convulsions (seizure activity).

In an interview with LA's Power 106 on Thursday, Wayne, 30, said epilepsy is the reason behind his multiple hospitalizations -- not his reported addiction to Promethazine/Codeine prescription cough syrup (aka Sizzurp or Purple Drank), which can also cause epileptic seizures.

Promethazine/Codeine is not prescribed for epilepsy.

Pope Francis kissing feet

Photos of Pope Francis kissing the feet of young male inmates at a detention center are drawing mixed reactions. Partly because the pope broke from longstanding tradition and also kissed the feet of 2 women detainees as part of the pontiff's Easter celebrations. The papal tradition of washing and kissing feet is usually reserved for kissing the feet of other male priests. Women have never been included in the papal tradition until Pope Francis' era. Apparently Pope Francis has been routinely washing and kissing the feet of the poor and downtrodden for years.

Married for 14 years, the Leakes are ready to renew their vows again, In Touch Weekly reports exclusively.

    Serge Ibamka and Keri Hilson

    It's never too late for Morning Wood.

    Twitter was all abuzz over a photo purporting to show NBA star Serge Ibaka's 'package'. As you know, Serge and singer/songwriter Keri Hilson are an item. Keri has plenty of time to follow Serge's team bus around the country since her career has been put on ice by Beyonce.

    She must be beaming with pride over the fact that women on social networking sites are debating over what her man is working with. (There is no such debate over Beyonce's husband, Jay Z.)

    I really don't see anything in the photo but some wind blown material, but thirsty women (and the gays) who know what to look for say they see it in all its glory.

    See what all the fuss is about after the break.

    Porsha and Kordell Stewart

    It's hard to tell what's real when it comes to fake reality shows these days.

    With so many tiresome and boring reality shows crowding the television landscape, producers struggle to come up with unique ways to keep viewers tuned in. It is not unusual for reality show stars to involve the courts -- and even the police -- who unwittingly provide drama to boost TV ratings.

    Lawsuits are often filed, but after the season ends, the lawsuits are quietly withdrawn; or the legal paperwork is filed incorrectly so the case is tossed out on technicalities.

All the red flags were there that the relationship would end badly, but Ashanti -- like most needy women -- ignored the signs.

    Brandy and Beyonce R&B singer Brandy, who hasn't had a hit record in years, opened up about her new role in Tyler Perry's movie, 'Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.'

    The 34-year-old mother-of-one also gave her opinion on Beyonce's controversial single "Bow Down (B*tches)" which struck a negative chord with Beyonce's Stans and music critics alike.

    In an interview with theGrio’s Chris Witherspoon, Brandy said Beyonce should be given the artistic freedom to express herself in her lyrics, even if her lyrics make her look ignorant.

    “I think art is freedom. You should be able to express yourself the way you choose to express yourself. Of course people are gonna have their own opinion, but opinion is opinion. I think art should be expressed the way it should,” she said.

    But when asked if she liked the song, Brandy agreed with the majority consensus that the song was garbage.

    “I don’t love the song. I just have to be honest. You know," she said.
