Everyone deserves a second chance, even a troubled pop star with a hugely controversial, public past--or at least that's how BET feels about Chris Brown.
The network refrained from involving Brown in the Michael Jackson tribute that took place at the 2009 BET Awards due to the scandal surrounding Brown and his assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna earlier that year at the Grammys. Brown has since returned to the BET Awards, but given his recent incarceration for violating the terms of his parole and recent release, whether or not his chair at the BETs would remain empty in 2014 was still a question up for debate until now. In an interview with Billboard, Debra Lee, the CEO of BET, opened up about the network's decision to include Brown in the 2014 BET Awards, which air tomorrow night, June 29.

If you listen to relationship programmes
on radio, you would notice that many Nigerians are indeed struggling
with their relationships and marriages and they are all seeking help.
And because they do not have a glaring media attention serialising their
issues, making judgments, giving strong commentary, poking them
emotionally, there are chances of their relationships and marriages
problems being solved.
Why is it that with the fame, fortune and
good looks, our celebrities’ marriages still don’t work? It has been a
strange phenomenon that the union of people in the limelight hardly
lasts, indeed. So the question is, why do most celebrity marriages crash
U.S. soul singer, songwriter and guitarist Bobby Womack, whose music
was covered by The Rolling Stones, among others, died Friday at age 70. A
representative of his label XL Recordings confirmed the star had died,
but said the cause of his death was unknown.
Womack was suffering from colon cancer
at the time of his death, according to Billboard. He had struggled with
other health problems throughout his life, including diabetes,
pneumonia and early signs of Alzheimer's disease, TMZ reported.
He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
in 2009, as noted at the time by Rolling Stone magazine. "My very first
thought was -- I wish I could call Sam Cooke and share this moment with
him," Womack said. "This is just about as exciting to me as being able
to see Barack Obama become the first black president of the United
States of America! It proves that, if you're blessed to be able to wait

The media attack on President Goodluck Jonathan over the
abduction of Chibok girls is widespread, leaving off the President as,
perhaps, one of the most assaulted heads of state in Nigerian history.
Communication experts and media scholars examine the performance of
President Jonathan’s media men in the midst of this crisis and conclude
that management of the image of President Jonathan lacks potency.
AJIBOLA AMZAT of Guardian writes…
IT MAY not be an exaggeration to say no Nigerian president had
received attack from the opposition parties, the media and global public
like President Goodluck Jonathan has been receiving in the last couple
of months. Not even General Sani Abacha, the man perceived to be the
most ruthless Nigerian head of states was that luckless when he ordered
the execution of Ken Saro Wiwa and the Ogoni Nine.

gaping hole with superglue, according to KENS.

stopped, stuffed his underwear with paper towels, and then told him to
go to bed,” a criminal complaint affidavit said. “Vargas did not seek
any type of medical treatment for the child.”
