Question of the Day: Should Couples Have a Joint Account or Individual Accounts?!


I recently read a post on a blog jemimaNigeria  that "two shall become one even in their bank accounts" and this raised the above question in  my head. I've noticed that couples are usually very sensitive about the issue of money in order not to appear as a gold-digger. So, in your opinion, do you think couples should have a joint account rather than an individual account?!

Jay-Z Shuts Down Rumor of Beyonce's Pregnancy.

The Beyonce pregnancy rumors seem to be the new topic for discussion but the superstar and her hubby are denying it. First it was Beyone who took to instagram to voice her opinion and now her husband is doing the same. According to Hot 97's Morning Show Program Director, Ebro emailed Hova himself to congratulate him on the news and the Open Letter rapper replied:
"It's not true, the news is worse than blogs."
There you have it straight from the horse's... email. Last weekend E! News got confirmation from "multiple sources" that Beyonce was indeed pregnant, but there should be no greater source than Mrs. Carter's husband, Shawn Carter, right?

Only time will tell. Stay tuned...

American Idol Fires All The Judges...


I was so waiting for this to happen cos' this season was the most boring season ever, I couldn't even finish 1 episode of the season. Well, apparently none of the four judges on the singing competition will be asked to return next season, an individual with knowledge of Fox’s plans told The Wrap. Longtime producer Nigel Lythgoe is expected to get the boot. And despite reports to the contrary, Fox isn’t even considering bringing former judge Jennifer Lopez back as a lifesaver for next season.

“All four are gone,” the insider told TheWrap. “They feel they’ve lost their core audience and they want it back.”

Driven by this belief and the need to attract younger viewers, Fox is set to make major on-air changes to “Idol,” the most notable of which will be an entirely new judging panel. New judges pop icon Mariah Carey, rapper Nicki Minaj and country star Keith Urban won’t be back. Even original judge Randy Jackson won’t survive the blood bath this time around.

All four judges have options to return for another season, but Fox won’t be picking them up, according to the knowledgeable individual, who said: “No more big checks for divas.”

Fox’s meltdown has everything to do with the talent competition’s declining viewership. Its ratings are already down 22 percent this season and it hit a series low for ratings last Thursday, when it attracted only 11 million viewers and a 2.4 rating/7 share in the ad-coveted 18-49 demographic. The ratings slide is especially problematic during May Sweeps, where ratings numbers are used to dictate advertising rates.

The network has resolved to stop paying the huge salaries it has been shoveling out for its big name talent, i.e. Carey’s reported $18 million package, Minaj’s $12 million salary and former judge Jennifer Lopez’s $15 million.

The show’s format will also change. Its look will be redesigned and the dated tribute nights will be a thing of the past. But the show’s trademark audition episodes will continue.

Meet Charles Ramsey "Dead Giveaway"...LMAO


Charles Ramsey’s name has been trending on Twitter for the last couple of days, which makes him a national treasure at this point. The gregarious Cleveland man came to fame when by happenstance he was instrumental in saving three women that had been held captive for 10 years. Above is the actual interview that took place after the incident happened, and the video below is the song version of the interview...lmbo


Micheal Jackson Accused of Sexual Molestation Even in Death?!

on the left is Wade and Mj when he was 7...on the right is Wade now.
Meet Wade Robson, the former host of MTV show The Wade Robson Project and also a former judge on Fox Television dance series So You Think You Can Dance. Wade recently came out to claim Michael Jackson molested him as a child and allegedly threatened him about telling anyone. According to TMZ, Wade's lawyer said Michael Jackson was a “monster” who sexually abused Wade for seven years as a child … and threatened him if he ever went public.

Robson’s lawyer, Henry Gradstein, tells TMZ, “Last year, on a career trajectory that was off the charts, he [Wade] collapsed under the stress and sexual trauma of what had happened to him for seven years as a child.” Robson spent many weekends with Jackson at Neverland Ranch and his other homes in L.A. and Vegas between ages 7 and 14. Gradstein goes on … “He [Wade] lived with the brain washing by a sexual predator until the burden of it all crushed him.”

Gradstein says Michael would tell Wade, “If anyone ever finds out about what we did we will go to jail for the rest of our lives” and “our lives will be ruined forever.” Gradstein tells us the threats worked, and Wade kept his mouth shut, adding, “This kind of intimidation of a child by a sexual predator is tragically characteristic and effective, keeping them quiet about the abuse – often for a lifetime.”

Wade was steadfast for years that MJ did NOT molest him and indeed became Jackson’s star witness at his 2005 molestation trial, adamantly denying any untoward conduct.The lawyer says, “Michael Jackson was a monster and in their hearts every normal person knows it.”

Kanye West Mad At Kim Over Her Dress At The Met Gala??!

According to Life & Style, Kim's decision to wear a dress by Givenchy to her first Met Gala has attracted a lot of criticism and in turn making Kanye angry. The seven-months-pregnant star, 32, decided to wear a floor-length, bright-patterned Givenchy to her first Met Gala just hours before hitting the red carpet with her beau, Kanye West, 35. “She had the Givenchy severely altered at the last minute on orders of her new stylist,” a fashion insider tells Life & Style because of her growing body. Her stylist also adviced her to add sleeves since she's gained a lot of weight in her arms. The source also says that the stylist has taken off a belt structure that was making her look cumbersome.

Apparently, this was not sitting well with her boyfriend and the source claimed, “Kanye is annoyed, as the dress is by his best friend Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy, and he feels embarrassed that Kim is messing with a beautiful piece of art.”

Another insider also tells Life & Style that “Kim wanted everything to be perfect when it came to her dress, so she had three seamstresses.”Getting ready for her Gala debut hasn’t been so easy for the expectant mom, who’s faced harsh criticism for her pregnancy style.

As Life & Style reported last week, Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour — who famously snubbed the E! reality star from attending last year — agreed she could go because of Kanye. Since he is performing, he was allowed to invite her. Before deciding to wear Givenchy to fashion’s biggest night of the year, Kim — who is due to give birth in July — was having a hard time trying to fit into her original dress. “It had to be modified five times for her growing frame,” a Kardashian pal told Life & Style late last week.

Chris Brown And Rihanna Diss Each Other Over Breakup


Yesterday, an interview hit the internet that heard Chris Brown officially confirming that his rollercoaster relationship with Rihanna had finally come to an end……for now, anyway. In so many words, Breezy said that Rih-rih was doing her own thing and he was too young not to be doing his own thing too. In true Chris Brown fashion, those weren’t last words on it all. He also took to Twitter last night with a not-so-subliminal message about his ex-thug misses and “loving her” from a distance: continue to read tweet...

Ja Rule Finally Released From Jail After Serving 2 Years For Gun Possession And Tax Invasion


Ja Rule is finally a free man … TMZ has learned, the rapper was released from prison today after serving out his sentences for attempted illegal gun possession and tax evasion.

Mr. Rule — real name Jeffrey Atkins — was released from Ray Brook Federal Prison in New York this morning. A source close to the rapper tells TMZ, his wife picked him up around 10AM and drove him straight home, where he’ll remain on home confinement until July 28th.

The rapper was hit with the 2-year sentence in 2010 when he pled guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon — stemming from a 2007 incident in which cops found a loaded semi-automatic handgun in his sports car. He turned himself in to authorities in June 2011.

In July 2011, Ja Rule was also sentenced to 28 months behind bars for tax evasion, after failing to pay taxes on more than $3 million in earnings from 2004-2006. Ja Rule served the tax evasion sentence concurrently with his gun possession sentence.

He was originally set for release in July … but he got out early.

Beyonce's Outrageous Tour Demands... Allegedly!


BeyoncĂ©’s diva demands include £600 drinking straws and hand-carved ice balls to suck on. The 31-year-old, who has sold over 118 million records worldwide is married to top rapper Jay-Z, 43, and is currently on her Mrs Carter Show World Tour. An insider claims her backstage rider insists that her crew wear only 100% pure cotton clothes, presumably to save her from allergic reactions. She’s also said to ask for special titanium straws which are used to drink a special alkaline water that’s served at exactly 21 degrees. She also demands her dressing room has freshly painted white walls and a new toilet seat, and even makes it clear that she will only use red toilet paper.
No junk food is allowed. Instead, snacks must include glass platters of almonds and oatcakes, and there’s a strict green-only policy when it comes to salad bar nibbles. A source said: “She’s extremely regimented and is taking everything extremely seriously, so she expects her list of demands to be adhered to. “Working so hard and with the toll the travel takes on her body in addition to the intense shows, she feels that her requests aren’t too much to ask for as she wants to ensure everything goes to plan.” Before performing at her gig at the O2 in London on Monday night, the star flew in from her base in Berkshire by private helicopter and then took over the venue’s biggest dressing rooms which are normally used by whole sports teams.
She had been offered the chance to become the first artist to use the arena’s newly-refurbished dressing rooms, but chose the larger rooms and then kitted them out with white drapes, leather sofas and rugs. A spokesman for BeyoncĂ© declined to comment

Rat Meat Sold as Lamb Meat in China,,


“How many rats does it take to put together a sheep?” said one typically baffled and angry user of Sina Weibo, China’s Twitter-like microblog service that often acts as a forum for public venting. “Is it cheaper to raise rats than sheep? Or does it just not feel right unless you’re making fakes?”

In an announcement intended to show that the government is serious about improving food safety, the Ministry of Public Security said over the Internet on Thursday that the police had caught traders in eastern China who bought rat, fox and mink flesh and sold it as mutton. But that and other cases of meat smuggling, faking and adulteration that were also featured in Chinese newspapers and Web sites on Friday were unlikely to instill confidence in consumers already queasy over many reports about meat, fruit and vegetables laden with disease, toxins, banned dyes and preservatives.

Sixty-three people were arrested and are accused of “buying fox, mink and rat and other meat products that had not undergone inspection,” which they doused in gelatin, red pigment, and nitrates, and sold as mutton in Shanghai and adjacent Jiangsu Province for about $1.6 million, according to the ministry’s statement. The account did not explain how exactly the traders acquired the rats and other creatures.

Kanye West And Kim Kardashian Finally Sets Wedding Date - No Media Coverage


RadarOnline is reporting that after months of will-they-or-won’t-they speculation, the couple is going to tie the knot in a lavish wedding in the Los Angeles area right after the birth of their child, an insider close to reality TV’s first family tells Radar exclusively. Kim is set to exchange “I do’s” wearing an “ethereal white wedding dress,” the source said, and wants a location “where they can hear the waves and be married under the moon and stars.

“Kim’s choice at the moment is a starlight ceremony in California’s Big Sur,” the insider added, noting that Kanye has signed off on all of the stipulations, as well as signing off on whichever wedding planner she chooses. But don’t think that Kim is going to be making all of the decisions about the wedding — or in this relationship.Kanye has made it completely clear to Kim that he does not want ANY media at the wedding and they will not sell their wedding photos for profit.

Nicki Minaj Vs Mariah Carey: Nicki Called Mariah 'A Bitter Old Woman'


I still don't get what the issue is between this two, particularly cos they were both on a track together; but in case you forgot … Nicki Minaj STILL HATES Mariah Carey … and moments ago, she went after the diva AGAIN … calling her a bitter old woman with no personality. Minaj just unloaded on Twitter, following a series of heated exchanges on “American Idol” last night. During the show, Mariah spit a little trash talk Nicki’s way … and taunted her for never having a #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100. Nicki took some shots back at Mariah on the show — at one point breaking out a cotton swab and telling Mariah to clean out her ears.
But moments ago, Nicki continued the war on Twitter … telling critics to ask themselves “Why a woman SO successful at her age, is still so INSECURE, and bitter.” Minaj also made a reference to reports that “Idol” producers were recently looking to replace Mariah with former judge Jennifer Lopez:“All dem #1s but JLo phone ringin? Lol. I guess having a personality, being a secure woman, and giving genuine critique still trumps that.” So far, no response from Mariah. see tweets after the cut...
