Chris Brown is sad. He feels like you guys are still wrongfully persecuting him for beating up Rihanna and not having any punishment. You guys are so mean. Breezy hasn't taken too kindly to all the shotshis way. He wants you to feel bad for him.
1. He May Or May Not Have Done Any Community Service - The sentence for bashing Rihanna's face against the window was to do some community service. He's now in court to determine if he even did the community service or faked it. SMH.
2. He's Still Chopping Down Rihanna - Why cry for him when he's still chopping down the woman he feels had the world coming down on him?
3. He May Or May Not Be A Homophobe - So remember when Breezy went off on Raz B with all sorts of slurs, then he apparently had issue with Frank Ocean, too? Hmmm..
4. He Dirty-Dogged Karrueche - He toyed with baby girl and kicked her to the curb like a little homeless urchin.
5. People Are Still Buying His Albums - His last album sold 150,000 in its first week so it's not like he's hurting in that department.
6. He Keeps Complaining - Dude, just stop. Take your lumps and get over it.
7. He's Sort Of An Attention Slore - Waving that new relationship with Rihanna in everyone's face is a badidea, dude.
8. He Should Probably Fight Someone Who Can FightBack - Rihanna, Drake and Frank Ocean aren't necessarily the hardest of the bunch. So stop acting hard and trying to beat up these people.
9. He Hasn't Learned To Treat Women Right - He snatched a cell phone from one chick and threatened to poo on another woman via Twitter. Yeah, he hasn't learned his lesson.
10. He's Still Rich As Hell - It's not like he lost any money through all this. Don't feel bad. #hehehehe#
Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet's New Zealand jaunt is continuing in merry fashion, with her telling one Picton fan that she just "looks like her".
Winslet hit the headlines earlier this week after going shopping in Masterton at Pagani and being spotted with Sir Peter Jackson, his daughter Katie and new husband Ned Rocknroll.
Winslet and Rocknroll were spotted leaving the Interislander ferry terminal and picking up a rental car yesterday after sailing south from Wellington on the Kaitaki ferry.
One witness said he asked the 37-year-old blonde English filmstar politely, "Are you Kate?".
Winslet, dressed in plain clothes and big dark sunglasses (Pagani perhaps?), replied with a friendly smile and quick as a flash said: "No, but I look like her."
Asked if he was Ned, her husband replied: "My name is Edward."
A nephew of billionaire Virgin Air founder Sir Richard Branson, Ned Rocknroll was born Edward Abel Smith in 1978. He became Winslet's third husband at a ceremony in New York late last year. He was previously married to British socialite Eliza Pearson.
An Interislander staff member who escorted the pair through the terminal to the car rental agency declined to confirm their identities and passed off the VIP treatment as "baggage issues". It was a busy sailing with about 1000 passengers, he said.
'Some people get married that young and have been able to make their marriages work. But if you're young, you are young.
There are some things you have not experienced. You might not be able to stay calm when you are supposed to stay calm, understand when you are supposed to understand or leave what you are supposed to leave. Also, I think these days, a lot of people are not happy in their Marriages.
I have a lot of friends who would have left their marriages but because of the African society, their in-laws, what people will say or other factors, they stay. We've heard a lot of deaths caused by bad marriages and before the death, there would have been signs, things would have been happening leading up to that. I think it has to do with age and so many other things like compatibility and not being true to yourself in the marriage.
Everybody has a limit. There are some things in marriage that you might not be able to stand. Some people's limit mightnot be my limit. My limit might be somebody's starting point.' pretty Chika Ike revealed.

" An Igbo man peeped from the door and said Mama Ayo was not living there. And as I was about going out,the mob pounced on me, searched my bags and found the hundred keys with the weaveon. They later handedme over to the policemen at Alade Divisional headquarters."
The accused pleaded not guilty to the charges and the magistrate, Justice Mrs. E.A. Adekomaya, granted her bail in the sum of N14,000 with two sureties who mustown a landed property in Lagos, with evidence of paying tax to Lagos state government.

The two lions were spotted as they lie down in the middle of the street during an early morning commutearound the Nairobi National Park .
The young male Lions appeared on the side of the road and strolled out in front of cars and trucks for a roll-around.
The African lions' antics caused tail backs as they found the busy road the perfect place to rub themselves in buffalo faeces .
According to eye witnesses of this wonder of nature, the lightning strikes around 6pm.

On January 30, 2013, a seagull attacked a dove of peace released by Pope Benedict XVI from his window over St. Peter's Square in the Vatican.
Still unsure if these occurrences are mere coincidence or portend something critical.
What do you think caused the lighting?
