Rihanna Says ‘I’m Afraid Of The Pedestal That Comes With Fame’ + Video

 

Rihanna,24, who shot to fame 5 years ago is letting out some of her deepest fear. RiRi sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a ‘Next Chapter’ interview and as never seen before, the pop singer opened up on several times.

Apart from talking about her fears, she also talked about Chris Brown and what her relationship with him is at the current moment.

The interview which took Oprah to Barbados will be aired on August 19 at 9pm

This is what Oprah said about Rihanna and the whole interview

I went there with my own ideas about who she was. I thought she was gonna be kind of a badass, kind of a hard-edged, rocker pop woman. Nothing could have been further from the truth. This is who she was for me and my cameras. She was 100 percent herself. She was thoughtful. She was very emotional. She was vulnerable. She pushes the edge…I came away really getting a great sense of who she was.

This is how you know who someone is. How people react to them. When we went back to the neighborhood, this reaction surprised me because it wasn’t like a big superstar megastar popstar had arrived in the neighborhood. But it was just as if she had gone to the grocery store and came back. It was great to see.

Check a preview of the interview below…

See What Has Happened To Naomi Campbell’s Hair Because Of Weave

For the women who are glued on weave and find no beauty and confidence in their natural hair, I hope this photo of super-model Naomi Campbell scares the hell out of you to reconsider those expensive weaves you’ve been rocking…

Naomi Campbell was spotted holidaying in Ibiza and to be frank, if all the millions (probably billions) that she has cannot help fix the damage those weave have done to her, then you better check yourself and how much you mess your natural hair with weave…

OMG! This is real scary for me…I hope those who think they are on planet Jupiter because they are rocking some horse tail weave begin to cut down on those fake stuff for their own old age beauty…

How Better Can It Get? Gabby Douglas Being Recruited by Spelman

How better can it get for double Gold Olympics media winner Gabby Douglas? After winning 2 Gold at the on going London 2012 Olympics and having grabbed great endorsement deals, the good people over at Spelman are literaly hunting her to attend the prestigious college.

According to TMZ, the 16 year old Olympic winner is being pursued HARDCORE by the historical college, and nothing will stop them until they get her!

 

16-year-old Gabby Douglas is officially being recruited by one of the most prestigious black universities in the country … Spelman College … and TMZ has learned the school president has even flown to London to get a leg up on the competition.

We’ve learned … Spelman — an all-girl college in Georgia — wants Gabby in a bad way … and sources at the University tell us the Team USA gymnastics superstar has become the number 1 recruit … by far.

In fact, the President of Spelman, Beverly Daniel Tatum, went out to London and made sure Gabby got a Spelman gift bag … containing a congratulatory note, school t-shirt and a CD containing a song produced by the college.

Tatum also released a statement to TMZ … in which she acknowledges the school would LOVE to get its hands on the gold medal winner:

“A young woman who has demonstrated the drive and discipline needed to achieve world-class excellence is likely to have what it takes to be successful at Spelman, and we would welcome her interest in the college.”

Spelman is no joke … both Martin Luther King Jr. and Bill Cosby have daughters who attended S.C.

 

7 Cameroon Olympic Athletes VANISH

Yeah you read the headline right…7 Cameroon Olympics Athletes have vanished into thin air. They have disappeared like some mystery ‘men’…

The 7 Olympic Athletes have ‘magically’ disappeared from the Olympic village in London and we all know what they are up to-this appears to be an effort to abandon their home country and seek greener pastures in the UK.

Sometimes you cannot just understand some Africans. You have been greatly honoured by your country and this is how you decide to pay them back?

On a second thought, are we even sure they are genuine athletes? Maybe some guys with money who paid some few top people in Cameroon to be put up as athletes just to get entry into UK and then disappear like dwarfs…LOL

The head of  the Cameroon Team have mentioned that the athletes in question — 5 boxers, a swimmer, and a soccer player have visas that will allow them to remain in UK until November.

The soccer player  is reported to be a reserve goalkeeper for the women’s soccer team named Drusille Ngako. She was the first to disappear, followed by swimmer Paul Edingue Ekane and then five boxers, Thomas Essomba, Christian Donfack Adjoufack, Abdon Mewoli, Blaise Yepmou Mendouo and Serge Ambomo disappeared on Sunday.

They had all already been eliminated from the games and were waiting for the Olympics to finish before heading back to Cameroon as a team.

Maybe they are going for the Gold medal in HIDE & SEEK!

Gabby Douglas Gets Over One Million Dollar Endorsement Deal + Her Mother Filed For Bankruptcy Few Months Ago…How Life Changes!

 

Life is difficult but it is the uncertain nature of it that makes it beautiful. You will never know what tomorrow holds for you and this is why we should never give up on life.

Few days ago, 16 year old Gabby Douglas made America proud by winning 2 gold medals at the on-going Olympics 2012 in London.

As if her achievements and success is not enough, Kelloggs is reported to have quickly jumped to sign an endorsement deal with her worth between 1-3 million dollars. A day after winning her medals, Kelloggs presented to her a special edition box featuring herself holding her gold medal…

This looks great for her, her family and her future…right?

But then it was not the same few months ago. Life was tough for her and her Mother- Natalie Hawkins. Her mother was struggling to even pay $408 for gymnastic classes she took 2 years ago at Orthodontist in Iowa.

Together with other debt, the mother filed for bankruptcy just few months before the Olympics.

According to bankruptcy documents which were filed in Virginia, Gabby Douglas’ mother filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy and her assets amount to $163,706.10 and carried a debt totalling $79,754.14.

She owes Capital One $1,534, Student loan — $4,350.23, Sprint — $158.78, T-Mobile — $413 and others…

With projections that Gabby Douglas’ success at the Olympics will fetch her over $90 million in endorsement deals, what are these debts to her mother? Nothing!

So you see why you should never give up on life even when all hope seems to be lost.
