Rihanna and Melissa Forde arrive at Tramps private members club in Mayfair just before 1.30am, following Drakes performance at the O2 Arena

Bajan singer Rihanna, right, arrived at the appropriately named Tramps private members club in Mayfair (London) with her bestie Melissa Forde, left, just before 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. The ladies attended Canadian rapper Drake's performance at the O2 Arena. The besties spent over 3 hours inside the venue partying with around 30 friends, before leaving around 5 a.m. and heading back to their hotel. Tongues are wagging about how desperate Rihanna has been behaving lately. The singer always puts her career on hold to chase emotionally unavailable men around the globe. But how ironic is it that men never chase her? Obviously she has nothing to offer them other than sex.

Nasal boils

Rapper T.I.'s niece, Kamaya Harris, posted the following photos on her Instagram page today. In the caption she wrote:

I wasn't going to post this but I wanted to share my flow for the past 3 days... They have been very miserable, very sleepless, & very painful but thru it all God is good almost over & I'll be back to myself soon

The "boil" is real

Based on the information in her caption, I'm guessing she is suffering from a painful boil (Furunculosis, Folliculitis) inside her nose that can be caused by Streptococcus pyogenes or Staphylococcus aureus bacteria.

You may recall my discussion on Staphylococcus Aureus in my Medical Minute post on MRSA. I told you that Staph lives on our skin and inside our noses. When the bacteria colonizes our noses it becomes necessary to decolonize the nose with antibiotics to prevent recurrent infections.
