Kanye West’s New Gifts To Kris Jenner After She’s Attacked

Kanye West Kris Jenner Gift

Kanye doesn’t just love Kim, he also has fallen for Kris Jenner and he’s pulled out all stops to show his support. I found out EXCLUSIVELY what pricey gift he just sent Kris.

It looks like Kim Kardashian has finally picked a good guy with new boyfriendKanye West. Not only does he seem genuinely head over heels for her, he’s also proving he’s a “family guy” by sending Kris Jenner a gift of support.
“Kim told him how everyone is bagging on her mom and saying all this false s**t about her, so he was like, ‘Don’t even trip. I got [her],’” a friend of the rapper tellsaccording EXCLUSIVELY.
So, what did he send Kris?
“He sent Kris a half case of [Cristal] because he thought she could use it…Cris for Kris,” our source says.The friend adds, “Kanye is the type of guy that, when [he] loves someone, he’s got their back and the whole fam’s back. That’s what it’s about. Fam[ily].” How sweet!

Edo Community of Nigeria, Germany

Our attention have been drawn to some declarations made by some dubious  and desperate individuals parading themselves as members of Edo Community Germany e.V and that Edo state Community Germany have endorsed and declared their support for Major General Charles Airhiavbere (Rtd) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
On behalf of the National Executive and the entire members of Edo state Community Germany e.V, I hereby call on the INEC, all Political Parties and the general public to disregard such claims as the activities of these desperate individuals are true and dubious.
I wish to further state as the number one custodian of our great organization that Edo state Community Germany e.V is a non-Political organization and as such can not directly and openly support a Candidate of any Political Party. In other words, we do perform our civic rights by voting and encouraging our members and their relatives to vote for their trusted candidates.
However, we very much appreciate the level of development that has overwhelmed our state (Edo) in the past three and half (3 ½) years under the present Government.
We Pray God Almighty for a free and fair election devoid of violence and rancour. May the best candidate win come July 14th, 2012.
Finally, I wish to inform these rogues that we have informed the necessary quarters and Legal actions shall be taken against them in due course.

"Someone sparks an idea and then someone else finishes that idea off. We’ve all known each other for a long time and so it’s a lot of back and forth and we do come up with new things. We always do."all the best to them both..

Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez’s $2,500 Plus Malaysian Love Nest

Justin Bieber Selena Gomez Malaysia

We told you that Justin and Selena are staying in Kuala Lumpur at the luxurious Mandarin Oriental Hotel and ebonyville wants to give you a peak inside their exclusive Presidential Suite!

Justin Bieber knows how to spoil his girlfriend Selena Gomez. The happy couple were spotted at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel after flying first class from Seoul. Judging by their previous trips, we’re assuming that Justin splurged on the Presidential Suite, which is located on the 30th floor of the hotel.
The room overlooks “spectacular” views of the skyline, there’s a baby grand piano, and a gorgeous room “muted in gold.” If Justin and Selena are staying in this suite, they have their own personal butler to get them anything their heart’s desire!
There’s a private sauna, whirlpool bath, personal gym and double showers! Plus, fresh flowers “abound” all over the suite. This sounds absolutely amazing!
We told you that on Twitter, a fan posted a picture of Justin and Selena shopping at Wangsa Walk and another insider tweeted a picture of Selena’s $124 (396 RM) shopping receipt at the Forever 21 at Sunway Pyramid. Then later the lovebirds headed over to dinner at Darus Mamak at SS15 Subang Jaya.see enjoyment

I Need A Man In My Life says karen igho

Big Brother Africa winner, Karen Igho, recently joined Naija FM as an on air personality. She spoke with P.M.Entertainment about the new job, her challenges, her kind of man and other issues
Karen, why are you coming on board Naija FM?
First, I thank God for His mercies and before now I have been doing shows and other things but this time around, I want a different thing entirely.
How did you get the job?
Na God now. When something is meant for you, no matter what, you will get on board. I think this job was meant for me and I got it because I have been working on a reality show modelling, acting and doing other things. Before the end of this year two of my films will be released. I am also into clothing line named Karen. I have lots of businesses up my sleeves.
So you have a lot of money to throw around?
I no know o. Na you sabi. I just tell you say I dey do business. You no fit say congratulations. You come dey talk say I get a lot of money to throw around (laughter).
What value are you adding to the programme?
I am the same Karen you guys saw on The Big Brother. I am original and I am adding originality to the programme.
So, it was really you?
Yes, no pretence. That was really me.
When you were going for the Big Brother reality show, what was on your mind?
I no even know. I just got one mind and God blessed me. In fact, my mission was to go there, meet other people all together. It was a wonderful experience and at the end, God said I am the winner and thank God, I won.
You were one of the housemates of The Next Movie Star which you never won. How will you compare the exeperience of the reality show to that of Big Brother?
I don’t know, but it’s God and I give Him all the glory. When God says this is your time, nothing can stop you.
What will you say is going for you as Karen Igho?
A lot is happening. The radio programme, the movie, my clothing line, starting a reality show with some other celebrities. I am into modelling, there are other proposals at hand. I don’t know whether I should say it now. No, I won’t say it.
What challenges are you facing for now?
There are lots of challenges. Life itself is a challenge. Going to Big Brother was a challenge. This one is a challenge too.
As a single girl, having hands in so many things, don’t you think of settling down one day? I mean getting married?
Ah! I wan marry o. No be say settling down alone. I want to marry and I know that my husband is outside there waiting for me. Anytime, I want to marry. I will someday get one.
How soon is that?
Ah! I will first find one, know him very well before thinking of marriage. Abi make I marry any man I see for road?
Who is your ideal man?
My ideal man must be God fearing, loving, caring. Money does not matter. Just the personality. Sometimes love is not about money. It is about the person, it is about connection. I mean you connect.
Don’t you think some men could be scared because of your personality and achievement?
Why should men be scared? They have forgotten that I am a woman at the end of the day. Men are supposed to be the head and take care of women. I am still young and it is only God that gave me this opportunity. I know my man is out there and he will not be scared of me. Karen’s man is not scared. How can men be scared of me. I am a very nice person.
How do you see yourself because people have a different perceptions about your personality?
I am a down-to-earth person, friendly, etc.
How romantic are you?I am very, very romantic.

Rihanna's Body Image Problem: I Miss My Ass, It Just Went Away!

Rihanna looks gorgeous in the new issue of Harper's Bazaar, but she's got a problem with one of her body parts: Her butt.

While she's more fit than ever now, the sexy singer isn't exactly happy about it.

"I don’t know if there’s something going on with my body right now, but I’m eating everything in life,” she says. “I miss my ass. It just went away! I need a butt. I have an idea of one, but it’s not living up to its full potential right now.”
Rihanna also opens up about her violent relationship with Chris Brown -- and collaborating with him on new music earlier this year.

“When I was in love, I fell so hard. I was really, really, really in love. The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed," she says. "Everything that I knew was different. I never thought I’d feel that pain in my life. I’m afraid of feeling that again.”

Of their "Birthday Cake" collabo she adds, "I understood that people had every right to be concerned about it. But I didn't see it that way because I'm in a different place."

10 Things You Can Do If Your Favorite Show is Cancelled

  1. Set the Web A-Twitter – Don’t underestimate the power of the hashtag. Twitter can be a very powerful weapon when it comes to networking with other dedicated viewers and raising awareness for the canceled show’s plight.
  2. Join (Or Start) a Grassroots “Save Our Show” Campaign – There’s definitely truth to the old adage about power in numbers. Try to find a grassroots campaign dedicated to reviving the show; if there’s not one, start it yourself.
  3. Build a Dedicated Social Networking Page – Starting a Twitter account dedicated to saving the show and then linking it to a Facebook fan page is another great way to get the word out; Facebook can be your friend in this situation. Find others who run Facebook fan pages for your show and then network with them so that you can strengthen your group.
  4. Visit Show-Specific Fan Forums – There are message boards and discussion forums dedicated to almost any subject one can imagine. Sign up for a few that are dedicated to your show, and post religiously. Use message board etiquette though, and avoid the temptation to attempt a takeover. If there’s already a movement to save the show in the works, joining the existing group is likely to be more effective that starting your own.
  5. Write Letters – While emails and online petitions have plenty of pull, there’s something to be said for a tangible, written letter. A physical mountain of fan mail is much easier to quantify than an intangible email inbox.
  6. Come Up With a Cohesive Plan – When a group works together, their efforts are almost always more effective. A coordinated, cohesive plan to flood network execs in a specific manner is one of the best ways to get the attention of the higher-ups.
  7. Start a Petition for a Film – Though the outright revival of a canceled show is relatively rare, the motion picture follow-up is a bit more common. When networks opt not to pick up a show for another season after a cliffhanger ending, the film version usually comes along to tie up loose ends and give the show a bit of closure. Campaigning for a film can be a more effective use of your energy than pushing for a prime-time revival.
  8. Create a Website – A well-designed website can serve as a community hub, especially for newcomers to the cause. Creating an easy-to-find and easy-to-navigate page with show information and links to related sites and message boards across the web might be a good idea.
  9. Look For Tie-Ins – When CBS made the cancellation call for fan-favorite Jericho in 2007, the fan base took the character Jake Green’s catchphrase “Nuts!” very seriously: network executives found themselves in a 20 ton deluge of peanuts. The tie-in to the show was a success, and fans were rewarded with a mid-season replacement of seven more episodes.
  10. Subscribe to Netflix – The DVD-by-mail and streaming entertainment giant Netflix made major waves in late 2011, when they announced that they would be reviving the much-beloved, but long-canceled series, Arrested Development. If the experiment proves successful, this may be only the beginning of Netflix-rescued cult hits.
Of course, another alternative would be to turn off the TV and pick up a good book, spend some time with your soul mate or partake in another worthwhile but neglected activity, but what’s the fun in that when you could be crusading for such a worthy cause!

10 Examples of TV Voting Scandals

Though the concept of a voting scandal is old hat to Americans these days, few things send the public into upheaval like a whisper of controversy regarding the votes on a favorite reality show. When viewers believe that a beloved contestant has been cheated, the outcry can be deafening. Here are ten of the voting scandals that rocked the reality television world. 
  1. Kim Kardashian’s Dancing With the Stars Twitter Campaign – When famous-for-being-famous, Kim Kardashian tweeted what she implied was a number to reach teen heartthrob pal Justin Bieber, the phone lines lit up with calls from a legion of crazed fans; turns out, the number dialed into Kardashian brother Rob’s voting line for Dancing With the Stars. When Rob was named runner-up in the season finale over fan favorites Ricki Lake and Derek Hough, viewers cried foul, citing Kim’s tweet.
  2. American Idol and Homophobia – After a sexually ambiguous Adam Lambert was beaten by the non-threatening and arguably less-talented Kris Allen on American Idol, claims that the results were fixed as a result of homophobia on the part of producers and other execs hit the blogosphere and spread like wildfire.
  3. X Factor UK – When competition-television mogul Simon Cowell’s show X Factor hit the British airwaves, allegations of fixed voting and rigged results were rampant after a technical snafu led to the publishing of results while a live telecast was still underway. Fans were outraged, taking to Twitter and other social networking sites to dub the show “Fixed Factor.”
  4. Oprah’s “Your OWN Show” Scandal – When reality and talk television’s indisputable icon Oprah Winfrey launched a reality show designed to find the next star for her OWN network, scandal ensued, as fan favorite Zach Anner’s votes were eclipsed by tens of thousands of those for rival Phyllis “Dr. Phyllis” Tucker-Wicks. Claims that the show was rigged in order to prevent cerebral palsy-stricken contestant Anner’s success spread like wildfire until the contestant himself took a stand in defense of the legendary Oprah.
  5. Bristol Palin and Dancing With the Stars – Claims that the far-right Tea Party members were taking to the phones in order to promote the daughter of ultra-conservative Sarah Palin during her stint on Dancing With the Stars after she survived several rounds of cuts, despite receiving the lowest scores from judges certainly deserves inclusion on this list.
  6. American Idol and the “Vote for the Worst” Campaign – When the attractive but decidedly poor performer Sanjaya Malakar survived several rounds of tough cuts after turning in lackluster renditions of classic songs on American Idol, the news broke that an underground movement called “Vote for the Worst” might have been at work. The movement, seeking to subvert reality television by altering the voting patterns, was arguably responsible for Malakar’s longevity on the hit show.
  7. Stacey Stillman Versus Survivor – The first season of reality-television juggernaut Survivor was an overnight success and quickly became an inextricable aspect of modern pop culture. However, a hefty lawsuit filed by attorney and former-contestant Stacey Stillman claimed that producers coerced other contestants into voting Stillman off in favor of the much older Rudy Boesch.
  8. America’s Next Top Model and Janice Dickinson – Former panel judge and supermodel Janice Dickinson made reality television waves with her allegations that hit show America’s Next Top Model was fixed; the CW network responded with a statement claiming that “this is completely untrue,” but the damage was done in the eyes of many former fans.
  9. American Idol Strikes Again – Generic greetings that did not state the name of the contestant, confusing voting line numbers and suspicious results, led to yet another American Idol voting scandal, as James Durbin fans claimed that their votes were wrongly counted in Lauren Alaina’s favor.
  10. America’s Got Talent – Thirteen-year-old America’s Got Talent contestant Arcadian Broad made waves in the television community when he stated, quite frankly and on live television, that he “didn’t want to do High School Musical,” and that the producers “gave him this hand.” Judge Piers Morgan interrupted the youngster, and host Nick Cannon attempted to do damage control by stating that “the acts do have a final say on what they do when they perform.”

CocoIce finally drops "If U Don’t Know" video


CocoIce finally drops "If U Don’t Know" video
The very much anticipated video for the hit song “If U Don’t Know” by CocoIce has finally been released.
The video which is been produced by the young and talented director Aina Mathew aka Matt Max will surely blow your mind as it’s something totally different and fresh.
Prolific song writer, recording artiste and a performer Mojisola Serah Sowole aka “CocoIce” is a maverick in the rap music world.  This rhymester delved into the rap game by rapping and miming songs of popular international rap star such as Heavy D, 2pac, Nas, Puff Daddy, Mase, Missy Elliot, Erick Sermon and Lil kim. She’s not only an ordinary rapper but a lyricist who knows how to play around with words, metaphors and idioms as she has been exhibited in her songs.
She has done a lot of freelance recording with producers /artiste such as Jo’Kaynie, OJB Jezreel, Xtac, Black Solo, Free style amongst many others.  
In 2009, she met with the late legend DaGrin, with his assistance; CocoIce was able to hone her Yoruba rap skills thereby allowing her to express her lyrics in a way she feels comfortable with and at the same time embracing her much rich culture and dialect. This was like an added advantage for her because Nigerians now appreciate songs rendered in artistes’ mother tongue.
The song “If U Don’t Know” is a remake of the late rap star, DaGrin’s hit song “Pon Pon Pon” and according to CocoIce, the song was made as her own little way of paying tribute to the late rap star. 

CocoIce has shared the stage with top acts like Mode 9, Sage, Late Dagrin, Minjin, T. Code, etc,watchout cuz she is hot...

CocoIce is available for interview.  Please contact Sunday Obembe 08084809400 or Nike Adegbite on 08056075979 to set up a time that is convenient.

8 Huge International Musicians That Deserve U.S. Success

Dolly Parton is huge in Denmark. The '90s soft-rock metalheads Mr. Big are big in Japan. But how does the American market respond to music from overseas? Now and then, a non-English-speaking musician ends up with a hit here in the U.S., usually thanks to a song that sounds more like a novelty number than anything all that profound. (Who can forget, even if they wanted to, Falco's "Rock Me Amadeus"?) With this mind, here are eight international artists whose music won't make you cringe and totally deserve a shot at success in the U.S.

Warda Al-Jazairia:The recent passing of French-born, Algerian-Lebanese singer and film star Warda Al-Jazair is a great loss to the world of Arabic music. She was well-known for her singing of patriotic Algerian songs, as well as truly poetic love songs, usually backed by the very Arabic instrumentation of strings and hand percussion. The video below is a live performance of one of her most popular hits, "Betwanes Beek," which roughly translated means "happy to be with you." Her legacy is comparable to another great singer, Umm Kulthum, who also sang of politics and love.
  1. Petite Noir:

    Singer, songwriter, and producer Petite Noir (real name Yannick Illunga) isn't exactly a HUGE international star, but there's no reason to believe he won't be by the time you read this. Born in Belgium, now based in Cape Town, South Africa, Petite Noir creates music that eerily blends African rhythms with down-tempo production, while referencing some of post-punk's moodiest bands, including Joy Division and Modern English. His recent release "'Till We Ghosts" is an example of what he describes as his "Noir Wave" sensibility.
  2. Kadri Gopalnath:

    Born in 1950 in the city of Mangalore, India, Kadri Gopalnath spent 20 years mastering the alto saxophone and adapting it to play Carnatic music. Carnatic music is a type of Indian classical vocal music, originating in Southern India, where the vocal line is sometimes performed on instruments, although not typically the saxophone. He is highly respected by masters of Carnatic music, as well as Western jazz musicians, including saxophonist John Handy, who helped bring more attention to Gopalnath by joining him onstage to perform at the 1980 Bombay Jazz Festival.
  3. Emily Karpel:

    Fans of Bjork, Florence and the Machine, and maybe even Zooey Deschanel, might want to check out the gorgeous, yet quirky music of Israel's Emily Karpel. Born in Canada, Karpel moved to Israel at the age of 3 and began her professional music career there at 15. Her music, like her fashion sense, is pop with a definite edge, and lyrics are sung in Hebrew. "Osher" is one of Karpel's recent productions; the song's video initially features Karpel in a veryKanye West-like bear suit. After changing into a tight lime-green dress, Karpel makes her way to a dark, dungeon-like club and, after dancing a little bit with her fellow masked clubbers, shoots and kills everyone in the place.
  4. Girls' Generation (Seoul, South Korea):

    The nine-member, all-girl, South Korean pop juggernaut Girls' Generation's most recent hit "The Boys" brought them exposure well beyond the Asian markets, and even landed them a performance on Late Show with David Letterman. All nine girls are the collective product of one of three major artist management companies based in Seoul, South Korea, each of which train young men and women to sing, dance, and act before unleashing them to capture the hearts and minds of tweens all over the planet. This year, Girls' Generation members Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Seohyun formed a spin-off group called TaeTiSeo and released a single called "Twinkle" which debuted on iTunes at number four, a first for a Korean musical artist. You go girls!
  5. Le Vent du Nord:

    The folk group Le Vent du Nord (The North Wind) are immensely popular in their native home of Quebec. They perform a repertoire of Québécois music on traditional instruments, including button accordion, Irish bouzouki, and fiddle, and sing in Quebec French. Québécois is heavily influenced by Celtic music, especially as it is heard in Ireland and Brittany. Their live shows are legendary, bringing audiences to their feet to sing and dance, and all of their albums have been nominated for multiple awards.
  6. Omar Souleyman:

    From Syria, specifically the border country with Turkey and Iraq, comes singer and master of Dabke music Omar Souleyman. Western audiences may be familiar with Souleyman thanks to his recent collaborations with Bjork and popular releases on the Sublime Frequencies label. His music is perfect for Syrian weddings, where guests hold hands and shimmy to the relentless rhythms the Dabke, a rural Syrian dance. On stage, he is joined by lyricist Mahmoud Harbi, who stands nearby ready to whisper in Souleyman's ear each individual line of poetry to be sung.
  7. Borobax:

    Playing in a rock band, especially one that freely mixes up pop with hip-hop, is a pain if you live in Iran. Despite having an international following, the Tehran-based Borobax are censored in their home country. However, thanks to the Internet, Iranian satellite stations based outside of Iran and a few intrepid record labels, Borobax's music, which seems to owe as much to the Monkees as it does the Beastie Boys, continues to find ears throughout the Middle East and Europe. The band's recent hit "Bodo Dire" and its accompanying video effectively destroys any stereotypes one may have when it comes to Iran and its popular culture.
