Chris Brown's Dad Don't Want His Son to Date Rihanna

In an interview with the New York Daily News, Clinton Brown said that while he understand CB's attraction to RiRi, they are better off on their own. He told the paper, "I personally really didn’t want him and Rihanna back together."

The elder Brown, who split from Chris Brown's mom when he was 6, thinks the on-again/off-again couple does not have the proper balance to maintain a good relationship, explaining, "You have to have someone who is spontaneous and whimsical but you also have to have someone who is grounded and logical."

Clearly neither Chris nor Rihanna would be described as "grounded" or "logical."

New Pics: Jay-Z, Baby Blue Ivy and Beyonce Go On Paris Lunch Date

No doubt Beyonce and Jay-Z are one of the most powerful couples in the world, but they still make time to enjoy some family bonding. On April 25, Queen Bey took a break from her world tour to grab lunch in Paris with her hubby and daughter Blue Ivy Carter, 1!
Jay-Z lovingly held his 1-year-old daughter during an adorable family outing in Paris with his wife Beyonce, and was such a doting dad the whole time! How sweet!

The dressed-down family grabbed a bite to eat looking completely casual and relaxed. Jay-Z and Blue were matching in dark jeans, T-shirts and tennis shoes. Blue even had her own blue pacifier in her mouth — too cute!

Beyonce, who is no stranger to getting completely glammed up for red carpet events and performances, let her hair down in natural waves and didn’t wear a trace of makeup. The proud parents also kept Blue’s hair in wild, natural curls — which matched her casual attire.

Breaking News: President Jonathan Awards $40million Contract To Israeli Company To Monitor Computer, Internet Communication Of Nigerians

Here is a very important information from PREMIUM TIMES for the 47 million Nigerian Internet users. Big Brother, in the form of the Jonathan administration, is watching you, and your communication is no longer safe.

It is one of the most far-reaching policies ever designed in Nigeria’s history to invade the privacy of citizens.

The Jonathan administration secretly, and in open violation of lawful contracting procedures, has awarded an Israeli firm, Elbit Systems, with headquarters in Haifa, a $40million contract to help it spy on citizens’ computers and Internet communications under the guise of intelligence gathering and national security.

Elbit announced the contract award Wednesday in a global press release but was silent on the Nigerian destination of the contract. Its general manager, Yehuda Vered, opaquely announced that “Elbit Systems will supply its Wise Intelligence Technology (WiT) system to an unnamed country in Africa under a new $40 million contract announced on 24 April… for Intelligence Analysis and Cyber Defense,” but effusively claimed, in the statement, that his company is “proud to be selected to supply this unique system, which is already field-proven, fully operational and customisable.

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez bites Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during Sundays match

There was so much drama yesterday on my TL when someone tweeted that Luis Suarez was a goat and another replied wondering what breed of goat he was LooooooooooooooooooL. 

Okay here's the gist: Liverpool striker Luis Suarez yesterday Sunday April 21st bit the arm of Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during their Premier League match. The Uruguayan striker sank his teeth into the Serbian defender's arm after a tussle during the second half of the match. Suarez didn't get penalised for the bite because the referee didn't see it. He went on score the equalizing goal for Liverpool. He has since apologized for his actions, but I'm sure the English FA will still penalize him.

But come to think of it this guy know just how to save his team from defeat not minding the cost of his actions. First he managed to get his Uruguayan team qualify at the expense of Ghana at the last Fifa World Cup, now it's Chelsea. Lmaooooooooooooooooo

Must Watch Video: FG Bans Film On Nigerian Poverty, Places Producer Under Security Watch-PREMIUM TIMES

The Nigerian government has banned the airing and distribution of the documentary, Fueling Poverty, a 30-minute film which documents the massive poverty in Nigeria and advocates against corruption and greed in the country.

The documentary, released late in 2012, was produced by young filmmaker, Ishaya Bako, in partnership with the Open Society for West Africa [OSIWA].

After the project was completed last year, Mr. Bako sent it in to the National Film and Video Censors Board, NFVCB, a national agency which vets,  classifies, and approves films and videos meant for distribution and exhibition in Nigeria.

But in an April 8 letter to Mr. Bako, exclusively obtained by PREMIUM TIMES Friday, the agency prohibited the distribution and exhibition of the documentary in Nigeria, saying its contents “are highly provocative and likely to incite or encourage public disorder and undermine national security.”
