It's no secret Rihanna has a "thing" for the late Rapper Tupac. She already previously tweeted earlier this year, a photo of "Thug Life" written on her knuckles, her way of paying tribute to the slain rapper. "Thug Life" is the famous tattoo the late rapper had tattooed across his abdominal. After the performance on Sunday of Snoop Dogg and "The Hologram Tupac", RiRi was so impressed with the show she paid homage to the late rapper again by having "Thug Life" written across her stomach. Snoop tweeted a photo with her, Snoop Dogg & Warren G showing "Thug Life" on her tummy in marker.
Tupac has been deceased for almost 16 years and still manages to be as influential if not more influential as he was then. He was shot 4 times in 1996 and his murder to this day remains "unsolved." After the show at Coachella 2012, Rihanna took to her twitter account and wrote:
The pop superstar wrote: "#TupacBACK #unbelievable #IWASTHERE #STORY4myGrandKidz' and added, 'This turned out to be one of the best nights of my life #BuffaloSoldier #ThugLife #EPIC."
Breaking News: 81-year-old Warren Buffet, best known as probably the world's best and richest billionaire income investor just announced he has Stage 1 ProstateCancer. In a statement to the shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway, the company in which he founded, Berkshire wrote:
BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY INC. NEWS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE April 17, 2012
Omaha, NE (BRK.A; BRK.B)
To the Shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway:
This is to let you know that I have been diagnosed with stage I prostate cancer. The good news is that I’ve been told by my doctors that my condition is not remotely life- threatening or even debilitating in any meaningful way. I received my diagnosis last Wednesday. I then had a CAT scan and a bone scan on Thursday, followed by an MRI today. These tests showed no incidence of cancer elsewhere in my body.
My doctors and I have decided on a two-month treatment of daily radiation to begin in mid-July. This regimen will restrict my travel during that period, but will not otherwise change my daily routine.
I feel great – as if I were in my normal excellent health – and my energy level is 100 percent. I discovered the cancer because my PSA level (an indicator my doctors had regularly checked for many years) recently jumped beyond its normal elevation and a biopsy seemed warranted.
I will let shareholders know immediately should my health situation change. Eventually, of course, it will; but I believe that day is a long way off.
Warren E. Buffett
The best part right now is the diagnosis is "remotely life-threatening". Wishing him the best!
Rihanna continues her naughty girl antics. Known to be the exhibitionist, she released photos on her Facebook page of her Hawaiian vacation that she took back in January 2012. There are some candid photos that show her enjoying the fun and sun and some that show her exhibition side going topless, wearing bikinis and drinking beer. As always, she displays her bikini-ready body.
Rihanna also released a photo of her up-and-coming video for the song "Where Have You Been". This will be the third video release for her album Talk That Talk. The song was written by Calvin Harris. Though a date has not been announced for the release of the video, on her Facebook she hinted the countdown has begun.

In his career he has been featured in many magazines. Walked the runways from Milano to NY, and has been on billboards across America for client's such as Coca-Cola and AKOO.

1) Who is Billy Payne?
I'm a mixed preacher's son from Indiana, who loves pit bulls and takes a pretty good picture every now and then, lol!! I know that was a simple answer, but that's because I'm pretty simple and easy going.
2) When did you start modeling and why did you decide to become a model?
I started modeling around the age of 7. My mom got me involved in local shows and print jobs. I backed away from it while in high school to focus on college. While in college I ventured back into it to make money on the side. And the rest is history.
3) What is a typical day in the life of a male top model?
A typical day would consist of getting some type of work out in. Check and respond to emails. Get your go see's from your agency. Head out and book as many jobs as possible in that day. Then head to your photo shoot or shoot's that you have booked for that day. Don't forget to try to fit in lunch, if you can, lol!!! Check back in with your agency. Meet up with friends for drinks/dinner. Head home. Check emails again. Watch a little t.v. Check to see what Angie Michelle has been up to Go to bed, then wake up and do it all over again. I think that about cover's it
4) What is the most rewarding moment you have had as a model?
That's an easy one! It would have to be the first time I got the call from my parents that someone in another city had seen me on a billboard. The pure joy and excitement that penetrated through the phone lines was overwhelming. I think it was the first time that my dad actually took my career seriously. Before that. I think he looked at it as more of a hobby of mine. That moment changed a lot for me personally.
5) Who are some brands you have worked for?
Ummm… Brands I have worked for? There's Coca~Cola, AKOO, Smirnoff, Ford, KFC, Sean John, HugoBoss, VIBE Magazine, Luster's Pink Oil, NY Fashion Week, and the Georgia Lottery to name a few. I act as well, and I've been fortunate to have 8 commercials under my belt. So some of the previously mentioned are clients not brands. Wouldn't want to confuse anyone…
6.) How do you balance your life and your modeling career?
With A LOT OF HELP!!!! I'm blessed to have some really good people around me. From family to management. They do everything from keeping me grounded and on track, to walking my dogs and getting my mail while I'm out out of town working. And that's even when I'm gone for months at a time. However, it takes a concentrated effort on my part as well. You can easily get wrapped up in "your" world, that you forget those that put you in that position. I NEVER want to do that! Thank you family and friends!!!
7) What is the best attribute that contributes to your modeling career?
LOL!!!! I would say one thing, but most would say my eyes. But outside of features, I would have to say my work ethic. I take what I do very seriously. It's my passion. It's my craft. And I think that's what people see IN my eyes, that comes through in my work. Not just their color.
8) What advice would you give any aspiring models?
Be as educated as you can on anything that you attach yourself to!!! When you know better, you DO better. NEVER put all of your eggs in one basket. And it's not always what you know, but who you know… All 4 of these principles can be applied to all aspects of life. Not just modeling! Always be good to YOU!
Halle Berry made her first public appearance since confirmation of her engagement to French actor Oliver Martinez. She attended the Jenesse Center Silver Rose Gala. This is an event that benefits domestic violence victims. Terry Seymour, from Extratv.com spoke one-on-one with Halle about domestic violence and also joked with her about being engaged. Halle once professed after her last divorce she would not get married again. When Seymour bought up her engagement Halle said:
"Who knew? I swore it off, right? Never say never, people!"
Days after announcing their engagement to the world, a closer look at Angie's ring has emerged. It was taken last week at the LACMA. The ring was designed by Robert Procop and Brad is said to have spent over a year on working with the jeweler on the design.
He is said to have wanted every aspect of the ring "perfect". There are no reports as to when or where the wedding will be but some have reported in will be this coming summer in France. Some jewelers have estimated the ring to be worth anywhere between $250 thousand dollars to $1 million!
Joan Smalls continues to make strides in the modeling industry, especially when many jobs have been limited for women of color. Joans seems to have become quite the muse for Vogue and you can see why in a new editorial for the magazine in this up and coming May 2012 issue.
She poses in a variety of outfits that accentuate her long legs and beautiful physique. They also opted for a natural hair look which has been all the rage for African-Americans in Hollywood since Viola Davis donned it on the red carpet at this years 2012 Oscars!
It was a 90's rapfest down memory lane with some of the top rappers from then taking the stage to end Coachella 2012 weekend with the biggest bang in a long time. Rap powerhouses Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre put an ensemble together that will be remember throughout the ages. Some of the performances came from Snoop, Dr.Dre, 50 cent, Wiz Khalifa, Kendric Lama and best and probably who stole the show…..the hologram of the late Tupac Shakur. The performance itself had twitter in a frenzy last night and was definitely worth the watch!
The hologram had a realistic touch that freaked some audiences members out but the overall attitude seemed that of bitter sweet memories.
