The Los Angeles district attorney has reportedly asked police detectives to dig up more evidence as they build their case against singer Chris Brown.

The police are getting cooperation from Rihanna, Brown's alleged battery victim, and what she has told them so far is even more chilling than presumed.

E! News reports that Rihanna has alleged to police that Chris Brown not only inflicted horrific injuries on her, but choked her while threatening to kill her.

She says she lost consciousness in the midst of this.

The couple is said to have been squabbling after leaving Clive Davis' pre-Grammy Awards party late Saturday. Shortly after midnight, things blew up.

Cops say a message from a woman who wrote about hooking up with Brown may have played a role in triggering the argument. However, there's also a reference in the police report to an argument over a rapper, but this is NOT the woman who texted Brown.

In any case, Chris Brown pulled his rented Lamborghini to the side of a street in L.A.'s Hancock Park area. That was when Rihanna allegedly grabbed the car keys and tossed them out the window, sending Brown into a blinding rage.

He tried in vain to find the keys, then came back to the car, put his hands around her neck and, according to the insider, said, "I'm going to kill you!"

According to the source, the 20-year-old "Disturbia" singer told L.A. police investigators that she lost consciousness, and when she awoke, Brown had fled.

Rihanna's right eye was blackened and badly swollen, and she had hand prints on her arms after she regained consciousness.

The responding officers were so concerned about her, they drove Rihanna to the hospital in their squad car instead of waiting for an ambulance.

Officers took two sets of photos of the banged-up star, one at the scene and the second after she was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for treatment.

According to a source cited by TMZ, Brown allegedly hit Rihanna so hard, she could barely open her eyes - they were almost completely swollen shut.

She had a fat lip, her mouth was swollen, her nose was badly bloodied, and she had contusions on her forehead and on both sides of her face.

Those photos were presumably among the evidence presented to the D.A.

After being treated for her injuries, police escorted Rihanna down a rear elevator and into a waiting Mercedes, the source close to the case says.

Chris Brown, 19, was subsequently arrested for battery and on suspicion of making criminal threats. He was released after posting $50,000 bail.

His lawyer, Mark Geragos, has not responded to repeated requests for comment on the allegations. Brown's publicist also has not commented on this.

A spokeswoman for Rihanna declined to comment specifically on details of the fight and the arrest and stuck to her earlier statement from Sunday:

"Rihanna is well. Thank you for concern and support."

If the incident with the car keys was what led Brown to completely fly off the handle, there is no confirmed account of what the couple was fighting about.

A number of rumors have surfaced, such as the text message theory above or that Rihanna gave him herpes, but nothing conclusive or detailed.

English Is A Funny Language

Posted by Wayne | Sunday, February 08, 2009

In what other language do people drive in a parkway and park in a driveway?

Why does night fall but never break and day break but never fall?

Why is it that when we transport something by car, it's called a shipment, but when we transport something by ship, it's called cargo?

Why are people who ride motorcycles called bikers and people who ride bikes called cyclists?

In what other language do they call the third hand on the clock the second hand?

Why is it called a TV set when you get only one?

Why - in our crazy language - can your nose run and your feet smell?

Sometimes you have to believe that all English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane:

If olive oil is made of olives, what do they make baby oil from?

If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian consume?

A writer is someone who writes, and a stinger is something that stings.
But fingers don't fing and grocers don't groce.

If the plural of tooth is teeth, shouldn't the plural of booth be beeth?

If the teacher taught, why isn't it also true that the preacher praught?

If harmless actions are the opposite of harmful actions, why are shameless and shameful behavior the same?

English is a language in which you can turn a light on and you can turn a light off and you can turn a light out, but you can't turn a light in;

In which the sun comes up and goes down, but prices go up and come down.

In which your nose can simultaneously burn up and burn down and your car can slow up and slow down, in which you can fill in a form by filling out a form and in which your alarm clock goes off by going on.

English is a crazy language. What is it that when the sun or the moon or the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible; and why when I wind up my watch, I start it, but when I wind up this essay, I shall end it?

Michael Phelps - What a dope!

Posted by Wayne | Friday, February 06, 2009

Michael Phelps may have won a record eight gold medals during the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, but now he’s gaining notoriety for a less lofty achievement after a photo of the swimmer allegedly smoking marijuana from a bong was published in the United Kingdom’s News of the World, the New York Daily News reported.

Phelps said yesterday he was sorry for his actions, issuing a public apology.

“I engaged in behavior which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment,” Phelps said. “I’m 23 years old and despite the successes I’ve had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner people have come to expect from me.”

He continued by saying he was “sorry” and vowing to his fans that this was a one-time mistake. “I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again.”

The picture of the famous swimmer was shot during a Nov. 6 party at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, where he was visiting a co-ed.

Sources told the British paper that Phelps was asked if he wanted to smoke marijuana. He said yes and was then led to a back room.

“He looked just as natural with a bong in his hand as he does swimming in the pool,” one witness said. “He was the gold medalist of bong hits.”

Phelps’ rep, Clifford Bloxham, was caught off guard by the photo and reportedly attempted to keep the photo from being published, with offers of cash as well as a deal to have the swimmer write a column for the paper for three years.

Phelps is on track to earn approximately $100 million from endorsements and he’s already signed deals with Speedo, Visa, Frosted Flakes cereal and the video game Guitar Hero.

Ways To Get Rid Of Blackheads

Posted by Wayne | Friday, February 06, 2009

A blackhead (medically known as an open comedo - Medical dictionary - definition of blackhead/open comedo , plural comedones ) is a yellowish or blackish bump or plug on the skin.

A disease of turkeys caused by the protozoan Histomonas meleagridis. Also called histomoniasis or infectious enterohepatitis.

Toothpaste is good also (for some people). Put only a little bit before you good to sleep. Some people use this as a mask but don’t do it! It can change your skin tone and make your face discolored. Aloe vera helps scars lighten and less noticeable. Use the gel or the real thing. Try to buy a cleanser that works for you, and when you wash your face, open your pores with hot water (not to hot, or it will dry out your skin) and massage it gently into your skin. the use cold water at the end to close you pores. The smaller your pores are, the less likely you’re prone to pimples.

Cleanse your face with unboiled milk, gently rub a coarse cloth dipped in milk to remove the blackheads. Steam your face with herbs like lavender, lemon peel and mint leaves added to the water and let the skin soak up its goodness.

Cut back on your sugar intake. It will cause breaks outs. Don’t drink to many cola’s or eat too many sweets. Also cut back on your intake of fat. Like in chips and so forth.

Try pore strips - they work well for some people - use right after shower or bath so pores are open. Uuse a clean washcloth, scrub, or just your fingers to wash face every time. Eat a ‘clean’ diet - lean protein, low fat dairy, whole grain cereal and bread, lots of fruit and vegetables. No fried, fast, or junk food - even diet junk food. Drink 1/2 gallon of water a day.

Use creams containing AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Fruit acids) like glyco-creams that will clear away any dead skin cells and “expose” the blackhead. Use the AHA’s every 3 days or so.

Exfoliate the blackhead prone area 3-4 times a week using facial exfoliators and scrubs. Avoid washing the face with soaps more than twice a day. Instead wash your face often with plain water splashes. Use a good exfoliant then while your face is still warm , take an extractor and get them all out. After that just besure to wash your face everynight before you go to bed and you should be 100% black head free!

A paste made out of cornstarch and water is great–it dries out zits and the very slight graininess of the starch will exfoliate your skin when you wash it off. Use it as a mask–apply and keep on until it turns completely white.

Best treatment is to cleanse and tone. Don’t scrub your fash but wash with exfoliating cream/soap. Don’t use hot water - but warm water. Blackheads caused by dirt/oil getting into pores.

Cut papaya in 1 inch chunks. Blend/mash 2 or 3 chunks and store the wrest in the freezer. Apply the blended/mashed papaya and leave on face for 10-20 min. Use 2 or 3x a week. The papaya may tingle but that just means that the papaya is working and it is breaking down dead skin cells to give that lovely glow and since it breaks down the dead skin it clears out the pores and in turn they shrink.

How to Attract a Good Man

Posted by Wayne | Friday, February 06, 2009

Ask yourself: Do you want a man? Or do you need a man?

This is a vital question.

You see, I get a lot of letters from women who say they just can't face another birthday "alone." I get these letters from 25-year-old women, 32-year-old women, 48-year-old women, and 60-year-old women.

They don't want a man. They need a man.

There's a big difference in needing a man and wanting one, let me tell you. It makes all the difference in whether you attract a man who'll love you and make your happiness a priority, or a man who'll fulfill his own wants and needs first (and leave you waiting around).

Men pick up on women who like men, who want one but don't necessarily need one, and they act accordingly.

They also pick up (like radar!) women who need a man, who are freaking out about being single, and they act accordingly.

So...what vibe are you giving off?

If you fall into the "needing" category, admit it. There's no need to be ashamed. From this day on, cultivate the happiness, self-reliance, and self-love that will attract the good man you deserve.

Happy women who love and respect themselves attract men who love and respect them and want to keep them happy.

How do you do become one of these women?

Start by treating yourself like a treasure yet to be discovered. Speak to yourself as you would a beloved child. If you're in the habit of saying things like, "It's just my luck...," "I'm so stupid," or "I'm destined to be alone," stop. Immediately.

Change your words: "I love and accept myself unconditionally," "I am a treasure yet to be discovered," "I am attracting good men, good friends, and happy circumstances."

Every single day treat yourself as you would the person you love most in the world. I'm not talking about conceit. If it helps, think about how you would treat the most fabulous boyfriend in the world, and treat yourself that way.

Above all, know that there will still be times when you are unsure of yourself, when you don't have all the answers, when you walk into a room of strangers and feel a little scared. This is okay. This is human.

Love yourself anyway.

You will soon find yourself attracting better men, better friends, and happy circumstances.

It looks like blonde stars have traded fame and fortune for a large slice of their brains, at least that's what their quotes suggest. Paris Hilton recently goofed when she said that Britain's Prime Minister is Gordon Ramsay, reports the Sun.

However, the hotel heiress isn't the only famous blonde to have uttered such things.

Here's the list of top 10 dumb blonde quotes:

1) Paris Hilton talking to press about the US chain store: "Wal-Mart... do they like make walls there?"

2) Jessica Simpson on NewleyWeds: "Is this chicken, what I have, or is this fish? I know it's tuna, but it says 'Chicken by the Sea.'

3) Alicia Silverstone on her role in Clueless: "I think that the film was very deep. I think it was deep in the way that it was very light. I think lightness has to come from a very deep place if it's true lightness."

4) Chantelle Houghton when Big Brother said she had changed since becoming a celebrity: "I've changed? What do you mean... I've changed my clothes?"

5) Jodie Marsh in a recent interview: "Eskimos are uncivilised because they don't have any shops."

6) Paris Hilton on her technique on the red carpet: "I don't really think, I just walk."

7) Jessica Simpson on her first day at high school: "A teacher asked us if anybody knew the names of the continents. I was sooo excited. I was like, Damn it! It's my first day of 7th grade, I'm in junior high and I know this answer. So I raised my hand, I was the first one, and I said A-E-I-O-U!"

8) Goldie Horn on her favourite types of films: "Comedy is funny".

9) Sam Fox on fitness clothes: "I've got 10 pairs of training shoes - one for every day of the week."

10) Britney Spears on her taste in clothes: "So many people have asked me how I could possibly be a role model and dress like a tramp and get implants... all I have to say is that self-esteem is how you look at yourself and I feel good enough about myself so wear that kind of clothing... the breast implant issue has nothing to do with that..."

Paris Hilton has reportedly bought a house in Camden, which is worth a whopping two million pounds.

The townhouse is within walking distance of pads owned by Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding, cool comedians Noel Fielding and Leigh Francis, and Blur's Graham Coxon.

Hilton was very impressed with the six-bedroom house and now wants to spend another 250,000 pounds to make the house "Pure Paris".

The hotel heiress has told friends that she has plans to have pole-dancing equipment installed in her living room, just as she has in LA.

"Paris started looking for a base when she was last in the UK to film her ITV2 reality show, 'Paris Hilton's British Best Friend'," the Mirror quoted a friend, as saying.

"She initially thought about living near Hampstead and Belsize Park, but moved on to Camden, where she could get more bedrooms for her money.
"She wanted lots of room for her friends from LA to sleep over. She will be spending a lot of time in the UK, so she wants somewhere comfortable and quite similar to her girl palace in LA," the friend added.

Britney Spears’ former manager and friend Osama “Sam” Lutfi recently filed a libel and defamation lawsuit against the singer and her parents.

Lutfi’s lawsuit came just three days after a judge granted Spears and her parents a restraining order against Lutfi, paparazzo Adnan Ghalib and a lawyer who the Spears family claim tried to regain control of the singer’s life.

The lawsuit, which does not seek a specific amount, provides pages of Lutfi’s version of events, including his claim that he urged the singer to reconcile with her parents and that he was acting in her best interests.

Spears’ family has contended otherwise. Lynne Spears once accused him of grinding pills into her food to control her, a claim he denies in his lawsuit.

Britney has a resurgent career with a new album and tour planned, both of which have occurred since a court granted her father, Jamie, control over the singer’s personal and financial affairs.

Lutfi’s libel and defamation claims heavily cite Lynne’s recent book, Through the Storm, and says it’s filled with “false statements.”

He claims the Spears’ actions have caused him to suffer “humiliation, mental anguish and emotional and physical distress.” Lutfi’s lawsuit also claims he has received death threats and “has been subjected to unfathomable amounts of ridicule and public scorn.”

Lutfi is also seeking unspecified damages based on an oral contract he claims he and Britney forged in 2007. The suit states the agreement called for him to serve as Spear’s manager for four years and receive 15 percent of her earnings. He claims the singer confirmed the contract in a text message.
