Photo: Miley Cyrus Posts Topless Photo on Her Instagram to Debunk Death Hoax

Miley Cyrus death rumors started circulating online over the weekend, with scammers "reporting" on the hoax and some fans believing it, pointing out that Cyrus hadn't posted anything on social media in three days.

Well, the Miley drought is officially over -- not only is the "Bangerz" star alive, but she's topless in a desert. Just another day in the life of Miley.

The death hoax started with a click-grabbing scam on Facebook that read, "(SHOCKING) Miley Cyrus Found Dead in Her Los Angeles Home! Country singer Miley Cyrus found overdosed this afternoon in her Los Angeles home."

You'd think "country singer" would have been enough of a tip that whoever wrote this had no idea what they were talking about -- she only retains a slight country twang from her daddy Billy Cyrus -- but viral news needs no truth to spread.


Fortunately, Cyrus herself put the rumors to rest when she returned to Instagram, uploading a slew of pics, including one where she goes topless in the desert. But unlike Gaga, Miley's not ready to #FreeTheNipple just yet: She turned her back to the camera, unlike the more revealing Instagram shot she shared earlier this year.

Khloe Kardashian & Sister, Kendall Jenner Call Their Mom Kris Jenner A ‘Whore’ On ‘KUWTK’

Calling your mother a “whore” is certainly not the way to talk about the woman who gave you life, but on the upcoming episode of Keeping Up With Kardashians, Khloe and Kendall call their mom just that! 

In the clip, Khloe and Kendall argue with their sister Kim about mom Kris cleaning up after Kendall’s dog. Kim was definitely on Team Kris, but Khloe and Kendall backed each other. Khloe thought that Kim and Kris were just “two peas in a pod,” while Kim thought Kendall should be thanking Kris for all she does. That’s when Khloe dropped the “whore” bomb. “Listen, if you whore yourself out that much and have six kids, you should have repercussions,” Khloe told Kim. Then Kendall backed her up with, “Yeah, that whore.”

After Khloe and Kendall called their mom a “whore,” Kim was understandably shocked.

Concerning the Kris diss, Kim told the tighter than ever sisters, “Well isn’t Kendall turning into a mini- Khloe?” It definitely seems to be looking that way! Kendall sure has Khloe’s brutally honest attitude, that’s for sure!

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Take Romantic Birthday Vacation in Mexico

Just two weeks after spending time together as newlyweds in Ireland, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are currently vacationing in Mexico. Mr. and Mrs. West are relaxing and soaking in the sun on a private residence on the beach to celebrate Yeezy's birthday.

Kanye West celebrated his 37th birthday on Sunday, June 8, and his wife Kim Kardashian posted a touching message expressing her love for husband.

She shared the b-day note on Instagram alongside one of their wedding photos, which shows the two at their post-ceremony reception exchanging a sweet kiss.

"Happy Birthday to my husband and best friend in the entire world!" Kardashian said. "You have changed my life in more ways than you know! The way you look at life inspires me! I love you so much!!!"

The two, who wed in Florence, Italy on May 24, enjoyed a giant birthday cake with fondant resembling smooth stone that spells out "YEEZUS," the name of West's 2013 album. The no-frills, elegant dessert sits on what appears to be a marble slab.

Gbege: Former National Population Commission boss, Festus Odimegwu calls for military takeover in Nigeria

A former chairman of the National Population Commission, Festus Odimegwu, has lambasted the Nigerian political class, accusing government at all levels of corruption and ineptitude- failings he said are now enough for the Nigerian military to seize political power in the country.
In an explosive interview published by ThisDay last weekend, Mr. Odimegwu said Nigeria had failed and that it was time for the military to intervene to save whatever is remaining of the country. PREMIUM TIMES got ThisDay’s permission to run excerpts of the the interview.
Mr. Odimegwu, a former head of the Nigerian Breweries Plc, said Nigeria had shown it is not ready for democracy because of widespread violence, ineptitude, corruption and illiteracy, saying the country should instead go the way of Egypt, where the military ousted the country’s democratically-elected government in 2013.

Video: Shocking Video of Kanye West Dissing Jay-Z In Concert

Looks like Kanye West is still angry that his padi Jay-Z and Beyonce skipped his wedding because of reasons best known to them.

Kanye’s concert at the X Games was his first return to the stage in months. The rapper debuted an entirely new setlist and stage design for the show, but his lyric changes are what REALLY had fans talking! In Kanye’s song “Cold,” he normally sings: “Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.” At the X Games, he completely left out Jay-Z’s name — he just skipped over from the word “had” to “drop.” Wow! 

While Kanye simply left Jay-Z out of “Cold,” he actually changed the lyrics to “Blood On The Leaves.” Normally, Kanye sings:  “I don’t give a damn if you used to talk to Jay-Z. He ain’t with you, he with Beyonce, you need to stop actin lazy.” At the X Games, Kanye sang: “I don’t give a damn if you used to talk to [SILENCE]. He ain’t with you, he with Beyonce, you need to stop actin crazy.” 

Hmm. Kanye leaving out his friend and Watch The Throne collaborator’s name out of his songs is definitely suspicious. We know that Kanye and Kim danced to Jay-Z’s music at their wedding reception, so for a while it seemed like there was no bad blood before the two rappers after the wedding snub. Plus, Jay-Z sent a lavish gift to the duo to say “congrats” on their marriage! 

The video above will explain better.

Family Sources: Prof. Dora Akunyili Died Of Uterine Cancer

Family sources have told SaharaReporters that Dora Akunyili, a former professor of pharmacy, former director general of the National Agency for Foods and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), and one-time Minister of Information, died of complications arising from uterine cancer.

One relative told SaharaReporters that Mrs. Akunyili was completely healthy until she lost the Anambra senatorial election in 2011 to Senator Chris Ngige.

The source stated that, at the end of the legal tussle over the election, the former minister visited the U.S. in 2013 to undergo what she thought would be a routine medical checkup. “Her doctor in America did a hysterectomy and found out that she had a malignant endometrial cancer,” said this source. He added that it was the tumor that eventually took her life last week in a hospital in the Indian city of Bangalore after she had struggled with the disease for two years.

President Jonathan nominates Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke for Secretary-General of OPEC

OPEC is expected to meet Wednesday but it’s unclear if a decision would be reached on the matter.

#PrayForKefee: “Pregnant Singer, Kefee Needs A Miracle To Survive" - Doctors

Gospel singer, Kefee who collapsed after embarking on a 14-hour flight to Chicago for an event a fortnight ago is still in a coma.

A close source who claimed anonymity told Tribune during the phone conversation that “Kefee surely did not know that she had high blood pressure before she embarked on the long trip and suddenly went into coma in the air. That she is pregnant has made her situation dicey, so she will need a miracle to survive, a Doctor told me.”

A medical Doctor in Nigeria, Dr Adeyefa, shedding more light on Kefee’s condition, said she is suffering from pre-eclampsia – pregnacy induced high blood pressure.

“Kefee is in a precarious situation because of the six months pregnancy. If the foetus had been nine months, the doctors would have removed the baby and save the mother and child. As it is now, not only will the baby not survive because the carrier is in coma, Kefee may also lose her life from further complications. The chances of the mother surviving is narrow, while the kid has a narrower chance. I urge Nigerians to pray for her for a miracle because that is what she really needs,” he added.

State Govt. Imposes Dusk To Dawn Curfew As Christians and Muslims Clash in Kaduna

Following the burning of a church, and at least two mosques, including some buildings yesterday in Southern Kaduna by armed Christian and Muslim followers, a dusk-to-dawn curfew has been imposed in the State. According to SaharaReporters, the incident happened in the military town of Kachia that houses both the Nigerian Navy and Army institutions. 

Sources who spoke on condition of anonymity, said angry Muslims had attacked a church after their own praying ground was torched by Christians in the area. The military source also said the Nigerian military, and police officials, have both taken over the town as a dusk-to-dawn curfew was imposed by the Kaduna State government in view of a possible escalation.

The mood in Kachia on Sunday evening following both events is “tense,” says the source.

Grammy award-winning artist, Eminem (Marshall Mathers) poured his heart out to his mother on his latest track ‘Headlights.’ The touching and heart-rending video which he released yesterday being Mother’s Day, is an attempt at reconciling with his estranged mother Debbie Mathers. Eminem repeatedly asks for forgiveness for all the hurtful things he’s said about her and for constantly dissing her in his music over the years.

The song is full of apologetic lyrics that try to explain just how sorry Eminem is for constantly dissing her through in his songs and his life.
Please oh, if I may ask: how many times in a year is mother's day celebrated? Seems to me like it's a month tradition.

Over 50 burnt corpses discovered in Gamboru market attack

Survivors and rescue workers said on Wednesday that they had pulled out charred remains of people burnt en mass in various shops within the main Gamboru market in Borno State after Boko Haram gunmen had attacked the border town on Monday.
A resident of Gamboru, Abubakar Mustapha, who made it to Maiduguri said he could not stand the horror of seeing corpses of burnt persons huddled together in small shops where they ran into for refuge as Boko Haram terrorists waged a massive offensive on the residents.
“You know the market was cordoned off by soldiers since the day of the attack, nobody went near the market until today (Wednesday) and unfortunately, we found many dead bodies in destroyed shops. There are some Chadian and Cameroonian traders among them who hid in shops too; many of the people were burnt beyond recognition,” said the visibly traumatised man.
A security official confirmed this, and said the market massacre added up to the death toll that now stands at over a hundred on the attack on the border community between Nigeria and Cameroon. See more after the jump................
