Last night on The X-Factor finale, Melanie Amaro performed I Believe I Can Fly. And halfway through, who comes out to join her? None other than R. Kelly. Kellz was admitted to a hospital back in July in Chicago, to have an absess removed from his tonsils. He cancelled a number of live shows as a part of the healing process, but finally was ready to perform.
After the performance, Ruh took to Twitter to talk about what it meant for him to be up on stage again:
To have been thru what I have been thru – having throat surgery and not only unable to sing, but not even able to talk – and to end up on the stage of X Factor tonight shows the true power of God.
I no R. Kelly fan but I can’t deny the man sings I Believe I Can Fly with every ounce of power with him. And it’s no wonder. It’s an incredible song. I almost became a fan. Again. Check out the live performance, including the comments from Paula, Simon, Nicole and L.A. Reid, after the jump…
I am not a bay bumper!!! I believe Beyonce is legitimately pregnant with a human baby inside of her uterus, and not inside of a stranger’s uterus. If you do not believe Beyonce is with child, then this post is probably not for you. On these pics posted below, Beyonce looks very pregnant to me. Obviously we don’t know the source of the picture, but Beyonce’s face says it all…Can’t wait to see the little princess, or prince?
Why do we do this to celebrities? I remember when the media claimed Tom Cruise baby was an ugly alien because he’s into Scientology, and didn’t release pictures of the Suri until she was a few weeks old. Turns out Suri is very normal, and beautiful, too. More pics of Beyonce when you continue…
Robin Givens has been living under the radar, other than a recent appearances on Tyler Perry’s House of Payne, and BET’s Reed Between the Line, she has pretty much been absent from the scene. From the looks of it, Robin Gives was trying to enjoy a low key day with her sons, when a paparazzi photographer discovered them shopping at The Grove in LA. Buddy (17) is her oldest son, whom she adopted, and William “Billy” (11) is her youngest son with tennis player, Murphy Jensen.
Is it me, or does she look like she has a script in her hand? Shopping and running lines?
Kim Kardashian is in trouble again. After her fake marriage to Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian is no longer a media darling. In fact, Kim and the whole Kardashian family have been accused of hiring sweatshop labor to create their fabulous line of clothes and shoes. While the Kardashian family brought in $65 million last year from their product lines, some of the people reportedly working on those product lines may only bring home $180 a year. NY Post reports:
…workers toil in un-airconditioned factories, even as temperatures swell over 100 degrees. Workers live in squalid dormitories and, after they pay for room and board, often pocket as little as $15 a month. Some workers clocked as many as 84 hours a week under conditions that investigators describe as akin to “minimum security prisons.
You can’t talk during working hours, you can’t listen to music; you can’t stand up and stretch. You can’t even put your head up and look around, or you will be screamed at. If you get permission to use the toilet, you get four minutes. If you’re highly specialized, you cannot even go to the bathroom.
Just before the news broke of the sweatshop, Kim Kardashian and her mother, Kris Jenner, headed to Haiti for some “charity” work. By charity, I mean
Rihanna has been in the news lately and none of it has been good. Womp. First, on Saturday during a concert in Portugal, Rihanna’s health struggles came to a head. It’s been no secret that she’s been battling everything from exhaustion to the flu during this tour. If it was me, I’d take this as a clue that my schedule needs to slow down. Not everyone can have a hectic tour run and perform top notch every night. But, despite doctor’s warnings, Rihanna kept pushing through shows.
Then, after way through performing her song What’s My Name, RiRi had to rush off stage…to throw up. Yeah. She even went on to Twitter later on, to explain what happened.
“yep! i ran off stage to throw up, halfway thru Whats My Name…made it back juuuust in time for RudeBoy” she tweeted to a fan following the show.
Poor thing. Check out the footage where she runs off stage here. And if that didn’t make her feel bad, the people over at Jackie magazine made her feel even worse. While the Dutch magazine was trying to praise her style and give readers tips on how to pull off her look in the cold of winter, they used a “colorful” title. How they didn’t know it was offensive, I’ll never know. But check out the “slang” and see their apology, after the jump…
