In Her Words: Lil Mama Recounts Breast Cancer Battle
Huffington Post - over 1 year
By Lil Mama As Told to Najja Parker I didn't take it seriously when my mother was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004. She didn't look sick. She didn't act sick. She still had her energy and smile and was always loving and sensitive. Despite our financial hardships or how she felt, she made sure my seven siblings and I never missed a trip to the circus or a chance to sing and harmonize with her. My mother remained the same person in and out of her sickness. She always said she would beat it, and she did. Then, the cancer came back, and it spread throughout her body. I watched my mom go through operations on her brain. She was in pain, and she started losing her hair and dropping weight. That's when it became real to me. I never would have imagined it. I didn't see it coming to a person who was so lively. While she stayed in high spirits, I saw the change in her security. She didn't feel like herself. That was very hurtful to witness. While I was on the Up Close ...

Star Spotting: Justin Bieber Takes The Rare Not-Shirtless Selfie (PHOTO)
MTV News - over 3 years
Meet Justin Bieber's "bored" selfie face! We've always kinda thought that when famous people like Justin Bieber get bored, they do things like call their famous friends (Sean Kingston and Lil Twist), play with some expensive toys (Batmobiles, Swarovski crystal-encrusted ice cream makers), book trips to outer space like it ain't no thang, or maybe even get a new tattoo. But, nay! When The Biebs gets bored, he quite literally does what 99.9 percent of America does: takes an "I'M BORED!!" selfie, which not only makes us feel way closer to Justin, but it somehow takes away a little of the shame we feel for vainly posting "sexy/bored" photos of ourselves! Yesterday, the "Heartbreaker" singer (are we gonna hear that soon, or what?) posted a rare NOT-SHIRTLESS selfie with the caption, "Bored ......" And yes, when you have 17373793930278 Instagram followers, reading one percent of the replies alone might in fact de-bored you. But we think that when Justin says "bored," what he really me ...

Justin Bieber Gives Away $100,000 Car To Sean Kingston
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Justin Bieber has got so much swag, he's now giving it away -- literally. The 18-year-old pop star has gifted friend Sean Kingston with his chrome-plated Fisker Karma hybrid (which itself was a birthday present to Biebs, from manager Scooter Braun). The car cost a reported $100,000. "When you're best friends with one of the biggest artists in the world, you get all different types of gifts. And this is one of them," Kingston told TMZ. He also said that Bieber planned on getting the new Fisker Karma when it came out. The tradition of giving cars to friends isn't anything new in Hollywood, of course. Kim Kardashian recently bequeathed boyfriend Kanye West with a reported $750,000 Lamborghini for his 35th birthday, while Jennifer Lopez dropped off a customized Dodge Ram pickup truck for beau Casper Smart's 25th birthday.

Pop Crush - almost 5 years
Instagram It looks like Sean Kingston is ready to get back to music and he’s enlisted the King of the South to help him with his comeback. The ‘Beautiful Girls’ crooner has teamed up with T.I. for his title track ‘Back 2 Life.’ According to Rap-Up, the pair recently shot a video together in Los Angeles. Director Benny Boom is helming the clip, which also features a guest appearance from comedian Mike Epps. Kingston posted a few pictures from the set on his Twitter account and also gave a shout out to Tip. Looking at the photos, we can see that Kingston has slimmed down a bit from his old husky frame. It’s obvious the singer is watching what he eats and is exercising daily. It’s been a long journey for Kingston. After surviving his jet ski accident and open-heart surgery last year, the 22-year-old crooner has a new lease on life — which explains why he’s calling his new album ‘Back 2 Life.’ “I’m going back in with my producer J.R.
