A couple of days ago, we learned the upsetting news that Britney Spears sprained her ankle while performing in Las Vegas and was forced to cancel two of her shows this weekend. Today we learn that Britney is on the mend and having as much fun with her injury as possible. As you can see below, Britney has been fitted with a boot brace that will allow her to be mobile while keeping her ankle secure. Because she has more Piece of Me performances ahead and a big performance at the Billboard Music Awards, I’m really hoping she will be able to heal fully and quickly. More »

THE TIME TO PRAY IS NOW!!!
Um, the time to worry may be upon us. Earlier today we learned that Britney Spears injured her ankle last night during her performance of Britney: Piece of Me in Las Vegas after she fell on stage. Britney immediately assured fans that she was “OK” but TMZ is now reporting that she’s not really OK after all. Britney has been forced to cancel her next two performances so that her ankle can heal. The site is irresponsibly using the word “busted” in their reporting but, thus far, we don’t know how serious her injury really is. Hmmm. More »
She says she's "OK"
OK … I don’t want anyone to freak out too much but … our dear Britney Spears took a tumble on stage during her performance of Britney: Piece Of Me in Las Vegas, NV last night that caused a bit of concern among her longtime fans. Way back in 2004, you may recall, Britney injured her knee while she was filming the music video for her song Outrageous (with Snoop Dogg) and the injury was so bad that she required very serious knee surgery which resulted in the early cancellation of the remainder of her Onyx Hotel Tour … and was, IMHO, the start of the downward decline that almost ruined her life and career. It took Britney a very long time to recover from that injury … so any tumble she takes is cause for concern. Thankfully, Britney assures us that she is “OK”. Click the embed above to watch video of Britney‘s performance last night … you can see her fall at the very end of the clip. Then, click below to read the message she sent out to fans afterward letting us know that she is “OK”. More »
"[Bobbi Kristina] remains unresponsive"
Yesterday, after we heard the horribly irresponsible and erroneous news from members of the Brown family that Bobbi Kristina was “awake” from her coma, we learned the actual news that Bobbi Kris remains unresponsive in long-term medical care with no change. Seeking to further clarify BK‘s unchanged condition, her grandmother Cissy Houston has released an official statement confirming once and for all that Bobbi has suffered “irreversible brain damage” and remains, very sadly, unresponsive to all stimuli. As such, Bobby Brown‘s attorney was forced to issue a statement on his behalf clarifying what Bobby meant when he announced to the world that his daughter is “awake”. But, where Bobby is concerned, he seemingly sadly remains in denial about his daughter’s condition and maintains that because “God is hearing” prayers, his daughter will “have a long life”. Sigh.

You simply cannot believe a word the Brown family says
Earlier today we learned of a truly unbelievable report from both Bobby Brown and his sister Tina Brown that Bobbi Kristina is “awake” and “off life support” for the first time since her drowning accident in January. With no proof given at all, word of BK‘s “recovery” spread like wildfire. Right now, tho, we learn from sources at the long-term medical facility where Bobbi Kristina is still recovering that no, she has not “awoken” from her coma and that her condition remains unchanged. Whether it’s wishful thinking, misinformation or flat out lies, it’s sadly evident that the Brown family just cannot be believed at all when it comes to Bobbi Kristina Brown. More »
What am I looking at?
Badgalriri strikes again, with yet another Instagram photo that has me tilting my head to the side, and going, “Hmmmmkay” (that’s “Hmmm” + “Mkay“). We know that when Rihanna‘s not making new music, or pranking the bejeezus out of Jimmy Kimmel, she’s doing wild and crazy things to her body. This time it’s a lip piercing. Or a tooth piercing. Or… both? Click inside and help me figure this out.

"This is something my family and I thought you should know about"
Very sad news to pass along today … Taylor Swift has updated her official Tumblr with the sad news that her mother, Andrea, has been diagnosed with cancer. Taylor shares that, for Xmas, she asked that her mother get a medical check-up so that she and her brother Austin would have the peace of mind that their mom was OK. Very sadly, Taylor reveals today that the results came back showing that her mother has cancer. Wow. Because Taylor is so open with her fans about pretty much all things, she felt compelled to share her personal story with the world, I think, in the hopes that her mother’s diagnosis may be of help to other people. Click below to read the full text of Taylor‘s revelation about her mom’s health. More »

"I thought I was dying."
Last year, pop star Avril Lavigne made curious mention about her health that clued folks in to the fact that she wasn’t doing very well but at the time, I don’t think even she know exactly what was going on. Today we learn from Avril herself that she contracted lyme disease sometime last year and began to suffer painfully from its effects … to the point where she was bedridden for 5 months and she thought she was dying. Horrible. Avril is featured on the cover of this week’s issue of People magazine and in her cover story interview, she opens up about her ordeal. She says she’s feeling better these days (back to about “80%” she says) but you have to read her story to hear how bad it’s been for her :( More »

Yesterday morning, the New York Times published an op-ed written by actress Angelina Jolie wherein she revealed her decision to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in order to reduce her risk of developing ovarian cancer after she tested positive for the BRCA1 “cancer gene” (you may recall that Jolie also had her breasts removed to reduce her risk of developing breast cancer back in 2013). Not only after Angelina‘s piece in the NYT was published, Kelly Osbourne made an appearance on The Talk yesterday to reveal her personal decision to have her ovaries removed as well. Kelly‘s mother Sharon Osbourne underwent a preemptive double mastectomy back in 2012 and at her mother’s suggestion, she was tested for the BRCA1 gene. Watch the video above to hear Kelly explain how testing positive for the cancer gene prompted her to decide to have her ovaries removed.
