Lady Gaga Acquires New Mansion
Lady Gaga is now the new owner of a $23 million mega-mansion in Malibu and the home features a massive 800-bottle wine cellar, home theater, saltwater swimming pool and a subterranean "batcave."
According to E!online, the expansive home also features five bedrooms, twelve bathrooms, a glass breezeway, gym and an outdoor bocce ball court. Set over six acres of oceanfront land, the property seems like the perfect beach retreat for the 28-year-old singer.
The hit-maker reportedly bought over the building from Dan Romanelli, founder of Warner Bros.' consumer products division.
Romanelli bought the property in 2000 for just $2 million, and built the house six years later. The interiors feature open-plan living and dining spaces, exposed beams and French doors.

Thanks to a lifestyle change prompted by her six-year battle with an autoimmune disorder, the 43-year-old rapper Missy Elliot looked slim, trim and nearly unrecognizable this weekend as she attended and performed at Alexander Wang’s H&M launch in New York City.

Having already lost 70 pounds in 2002, Missy says she lost an additional 30 pounds recently, which she credits to eating healthy and Shaun T workout videos. See her before pics below;
The rapper began taking her health seriously after being diagnosed with Graves disease (an illness that causes the thyroid gland to produce too much thyroid hormone) in 2008. Things got so bad at one point that Missy says she couldn’t even hold a pen to write! But since then, she appears to be doing really well.

US professional Mixed Martial artist and porn star War Machine, who is in jail awaiting trial for beating his ex-girlfriend, porn star Christy Mack almost to death, wrote a suicide note before trying to hang himself in his Las Vegas cell last week.

Fortunately for him, his suicide was foiled by a corrections officer who was walking by his cell.

#EbolaOutBreak: Liberia's President Writes A Heart Moving Letter to the World

Liberia's President, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has written a heartfelt letter to the world over the Ebola crisis that hit her country. In the letter which was read over the radio and transmitted worldwide, she likened the Ebola epidermic to the civil war her country faced 11 years ago which killed a lot of Liberians, crumbled their economy and vital institutions.

The president called on the international community to stop all theoretical explanations on the Ebola crisis and act fast to stop the spread of the deadly virus. Find her letter after the cut... 

Dear World
In just over six months, Ebola has managed to bring my country to a standstill. We have lost over 2,000 Liberians. Some are children struck down in the prime of their youth. Some were fathers, mothers, brothers or best friends. Many were brave health workers that risked their lives to save others, or simply offer victims comfort in their final moments.
There is no coincidence Ebola has taken hold in three fragile states – Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea - all battling to overcome the effects of interconnected wars. In Liberia, our civil war ended only eleven years ago. It destroyed our public infrastructure, crushed our economy and led to an exodus of educated professionals. A country that had some 3,000 qualified doctors at the start of the war was dependent by its end on barely three dozen. In the last few years, Liberia was bouncing back. We realized there was a long way to go, but the future was looking bright.
Now Ebola threatens to erase that hard work. Our economy was set to be larger and stronger this year, offering more jobs to Liberians and raising living standards. Ebola is not just a health crisis – across West Africa, a generation of young people risk being lost to an economic catastrophe as harvests are missed, markets are shut and borders are closed.
The virus has been able to spread so rapidly because of the insufficient strength of the emergency, medical and military services that remain under-resourced and without the preparedness to confront such a challenge. This would have been the case whether the confrontation was with Ebola, another infectious disease, or a natural disaster.
But one thing is clear. This is a fight in which the whole world has a stake. This disease respects no borders. The damage it is causing in West Africa, whether in public health, the economy or within communities – is already reverberating throughout the region and across the world.
The international reaction to this crisis was initially inconsistent and lacking in clear direction or urgency. Now finally, the world has woken up. The community of nations has realized they cannot simply pull up the drawbridge and wish this situation away.
This fight requires a commitment from every nation that has the capacity to help – whether that is with emergency funds, medical supplies or clinical expertise.
I have every faith in our resilience as Liberians, and our capacity as global citizens, to face down this disease, beat it and rebuild. History has shown that when a people are at their darkest hour, humanity has an enviable ability to act with bravery, compassion and selflessness for the benefit of those most in need.
From governments to international organisations, financial institutions to NGOs, politicians to ordinary people on the street in any corner of the world, we all have a stake in the battle against Ebola. It is the duty of all of us, as global citizens, to send a message that we will not leave millions of West Africans to fend for themselves against an enemy that they do not know, and against whom they have little defence.
The time for talking or theorizing is over. Only concerted action will save my country, and our neighbours, from experiencing another national tragedy. The words of Henrik Ibsen have never been truer: “A thousand words leave not the same deep impression as does a single deed.
Yours sincerely,
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
