This much was confirmed on her twitter by Showtime following the poser she threw at her fans asking her fans to name whatever they'd want as gifts for the summer.
"I'm in the mood to give out gifts……what would you guys like? It's ummer and people are smiling " was how she spelt it out.
And in response to her twit, trust Nigerians. The response was overwhelming,as bogus requests ruled the social network.
While some said wanted iphone, others said they needed Blackberries, channel bags and movie tickets.
But what we couldn't ascertain is whether the diva meant it or she was just twitting for twitting sake.
We're told S.B. is also gutting the in-flight lavatory and replacing it with a giant, luxurious bathroom. Oh, he's also giving the jet a custom paint job, to include his logo.
This is how Mediatakeout reported it...... "Diddy came in quickly and immediately went to the private area . . . about 20 minutes later J Lo went in. I was in shock." However, given that Jennifer was also on set in Atlanta filming What To Expect the same day, it may be a bit of a stretch to envision her jetting off to NY later that evening to dine with Combs.
Keeping my fingers crossed for this one. If it is true, i wonder what will happen to Cassey?
"We discovered there are fewer opportunities for Christian artistes to express themselves and we want to provide platforms such as this", says Bouqui.

Clarence is the by-product of a whirlwind romance between SSP and actress, Clarion Chukwurah, in the early 80 s. Reports suggest that both were young and starry- eyed and obviously not ready for the challenges of marriage then. SSP went on to conquer more fields, siring many kids along the way while Clarion also tried her hands on a couple of relationships. Clarence grew up without a biological father-figure in his life but time has a way of healing all wounds. It has healed Clarence's obviously. Indications that father and son would, one day, work together had been palpable considering that they are in the same line of business, especially when you also consider that they are of the Yoruba stock, which holds strongly that a productive, successful child would always be his father's, notwithstanding whether the father had abandoned the child for donkey years.
SSP was quoted as saying, "I am proud of my son and his company. His achievement gives me every reason to state here and now that he is my best gift to showbiz in Nigeria and the best gift showbiz has given to me. Just watch out, very soon, you will hear of Shina Peters and his son, Clarence, doing something unique and great together. Very soon."
Since his return to Nigeria after training as a cinematographer in South Africa a few years ago, Clarence has evolved into one of the most sought after directors with a catalogue of awards-winning music videos. He is the CEO of Capital Hill records. Clarence's ascent to the top of his career came at a time when his father had hit a rough patch in his career, which saw his rating plummet. Since the late 90 s, SSP's trajectory had lost traction. Now, he is back on the drawing board. He is back to working with his age-long producer, Laolu Akins, who worked with him on his first set of successful albums from Ace, Shinamania to Dancing Time and Experience. They are reportedly experimenting with a new variant of Juju titled Afro Juju Jungle. Clarence is the top choice for videos. SSP stresses, "There is no way Clarence won't be part of the project. Though my son is too expensive for people, that is not a problem. If I don't use Clarence, who else am I going to use?"

M-Net , organizers of BBA have announced that African acts Wizkid, Mo'Cheddah, Fally Ipupa will grace the stage to perform some of their hit songs. Other acts on the list are South Africa's Professor, Speedy and Tanzania's Cpwaa . Joining them on stage at the Big Brother house will be all the previously evicted housemates from this seasons show including the Brother Amplified dance crew. The finale which will last for just two hours will see only two winners emerge. 'We're going all out to amplify the finale. In addition to these great performers, there's going to be one really magic moment when it becomes clear to the final housemates that this year, there are two prizes. We know, our audiences know but the housemates competing for the big prize don't know this as yet – and I can only imagine their shock and delight when they find out that there are TWO prizes of USD 200 000 ', M-Net Africa Managing Director Biola Alabi tells us.
The top seven housemates competing for this year's big prize are – Hanni (Ethiopia), Karen (Nigeria), Lomwe (Malawi), Luclay (South Africa), Sharon O (Uganda), Vina (Nigeria) and Wendall ( Zimbabwe).
The singer goes even more daring on the inside as she poses completely nude atop a cake!
On if she feels more appreciated in Europe: No, not really. People still compare me to B over there. I said in an interview recently, 'You know, if you guys would be a little bit more intelligent and ask me about myself we'll have a much better interview.' You can't want a story from me and keep asking me about the past.
On breathing a sigh of relief after her last meeting with Mathew Knowles: I did, but I also felt like, 'Oh my God, what have I done?!' I stayed in the house for two days. I was sad. It was like a funeral. I had to deaden that situation in order to start fresh. That's a very long time to have the same manager and the same label.
On her current relationship with Mathew: Mathew sent me flowers for my birthday! It's… I respect him above anything.
On whether she ever felt Motivation would be too racy for her image: Not at all. Every woman knows what that feels like—hopefully. But everyone doesn't expect Kelly to sing about it. This is true. But I just loved the song so much. And yes, I can relate to it. I came into my sexuality while I was recording this album. I can walk into a sex shop now and not worry about what people would say if they saw me in there.
On whether she actually goes to sex shops: Yeah! With friends on the low. I go at the right time. Nighttime. 1 a.m. The really good ones are open that late.
The August/September issue of Vibe will be on newsstands August 16th and will have an alternate cover featuring Amy Winehouse.
"Up in the studio with mad Haitian dudes dancin around!!!! Speakers knockin!!!! This beat is crazy!!!!!!!! SaK Paseeeeee!!! Lol!!!!" the "What's Luv?" singer tweeted.
Fans might be treated to a single this summer with an album release later this year. Tell us, are you anticipating her comeback?
Suspected Boko Haram islamists shot and killed Mohammed Ali Lawal, the district head of Bulabulin in Maiduguri around 8: am today in Maiduguri. Alhaji Ali's attackers numbering 3 also shot and killed his 9 year old daughter. A neighbor's daughter was also caught in the cross fire. Family sources claimed she sustained serious injuries.
Since its resurgence about a year ago, the northeasatern Nigeria based islamist sect has targetted and killed several districts heads, islamic scholars, local officials and security agents in a campaign of violence.
On the Rumors She Will Be Joining L.A. Reid at Epic:
I think you have to ask L.A. kinda what's going on. I can't really comment on what's happening and the system. I can't really say too much. I don't really know too much about the breakdown of everything. I know a lot of times I speak to my fans [via Twitter] like, "Today was so great," or "Oh my god, I can't believe this is happening right now." There's things I' ve been saying so I can't wait to share those things with my fans.
On Her Friends' 'Wedding Bells' and Whether She's Inspired To Get Married Soon:
Whenever you see any woman, in particularly your friends and family that are really close to you, get to have that moment in their lives, I get so excited for them. The way that I look at it, I come from a background of marriage. My grandparents were married for 51 years now, it is. My mother and father are going on 30 years, so that's something that's very traditional within my family. The way that I look at it, I'm so lost in the zone right now of what I'm doing that when that happens in my life, I believe that it'll happen at the perfect time. You can't put a time marker on anything like that and you can't say exactly when you want to do it; it just kinda falls in place. That's something I definitely look forward to because in my career, you do sacrifice a lot by just putting so much time and effort into it, but I do believe when that moment happens it's going to be amazing. I have a whole breakdown of how I see it. I' m not rushing the idea of it. That part is so emotional, like I cried when I saw La[La] get married , and even when I saw Monica. I've known Monica for years, like she's my family to me. And of course, La La is my best, best friend so it's really cool. And then for Kim, it's always great to see a woman experience a moment like that in their lives.

Mr. Adelaja said he believed that he was declared persona non grata because he was a staunch supporter of the Orange Revolution in Ukraine, the pro-Western uprising in 2004 that the Kremlin opposed. MR. Adelaja, who has a boisterous laugh and a relentlessly sunny personality, tries to brush aside the insults. He said his church's popularity showed that Ukrainians were on a spiritual quest after having weathered the state-mandated atheism of the Soviet era. He said that more than 100 ,000 people attended services regularly at the main arena in Kiev or his affiliates across Ukraine, which has a population of 46 million. "I came to this country disadvantaged as a black person," he said in an interview, adding that he was blistered with slurs and epithets. "But still, with all my disadvantages, with my accented Russian language, I went out and said, 'Hey, this will help you.' And people have responded to it." Mr. Adelaja, 43 , arrived in the Soviet Union in 1986 as a college student, then stayed after the Soviet collapse in 1991 , later moving to Kiev. His wife, Bose, is also Nigerian and often conducts services at the church. They speak fluent Russian, which is the native language for many here and is understood by most speakers of Ukrainian, the country's other main language. Embassy of God has sprouted affiliates throughout the world, and Mr. Adelaja has been praised by some American evangelicals for bringing their brand of Christianity to the former Soviet Union. In Ukraine, Embassy of God undertakes a wide array of charitable activities, feeding thousands of people a month at soup kitchens and running treatment centers for alcohol and drug addiction. But it has also thrived because Mr. Adelaja has tapped into a desire of people in formerly Communist countries to learn entrepreneurial skills and make money. Mr. Adelaja did not study in the United States, but says he has learned from the teachings of American pastors. His views sometimes reflect the so-called prosperity gospel — a belief among some strains of evangelical Christianity that God wants the faithful to attain material wealth. On a recent Saturday night here, Mr. Adelaja conducted a seminar with a few dozen people in a church annex. Reading from an iPad, he recited passages from the Bible and discussed how Christian principles could assist in business. Mr. Adelaja and a parishioner, Ishtvan Birov, 35 , bantered about how to innovate in life, personally and professionally. The conversation veered from Jesus to Steve Jobs , the Apple chief executive, back to Jesus again. "Apple takes a model and keeps improving on it," Mr. Birov said. Mr. Adelaja responded, "That is the principle of God — to always keep making it better." He added, "God is strategy, God is strategic thinking."
"We are always thinking, how can we make the Bible still relevant? The same values, the same product. But not doing it in the Orthodox old style," Sunday Adelaja said.
You have a clothing line, how well is it doing?
Eclectic by Sasha is still on but I only attend to my clients just on one on one basis and it's going to be so for now. I'm still working on my retail collection that should be out before the end of this year. It will be a mini-launch because I have to focus on my album which is coming out at the same time. So that people can know where to buy ready-to-wear clothes and then they won't need to email or call me. For now, you place your order and it's custom made for you.
Tell us about this new album?
My new album is titled Sasha speaks. It's ready, I'm just waiting for an official date. It's not however going to be an album launch per say, but an album listening session. The album title explains it all. It is basically speaking about a lot of issues and nothing specific. For example on the Lagos stereotype where they play songs and people think all these Lagos girls are materialist or wayward. I tried to counter that in my songs as I speak on how I live and enjoy Lagos and not be way ward. You can be a giddy babe and be just cool.
Will you tag yourself a tomboy?
No o! I know I started off as a tom boy because a lot of things that my female friends will do were not interesting to me except for maybe shopping ( laughs). I probably started of as a tom boy because I was a bit more brazen, adventurous and outspoken but I don't really think I am anymore. I'm a woman now I' ve grown over the years; that I am feisty doesn't mean that I'm manly
But do you think your fans know this?
Well I feel there is a lot of work to be done where communicating artiste are in respect to the Nigerian audience. Some people understand, some people don't get it. That is why people in the industry need to bridge a lot of such communication gaps. Because for instance when you hear hip hop, rap, you' re thinking, 2pac, Biggy or people getting shot and so your orientation of what a hip hop artiste is will be founded by these false illusions. For me, I call myself a poet, a motivational speaker. People say when they see me on stage I look so aggressive. I believe that the content of what you are saying matters. If you watch the Adara video, I wasn't aggressive there because of the message in the song. You have to communicate your message in your songs. The fact is that I might be aggressive when I'm on stage, but then, I try to communicate my message to the audience. I hate to be a tom boy.
Do you think this has discouraged male admirers?
Well I certainly hope not, because I'm an African woman and African women are the strong confident ones and this is exactly how we expect our men to be. But then I don't just come at you and dare you. I' m not that kind of person. If a man is confident in himself then whatever it is that I am doing should not be a deterant to whatever it is he feels about me. It should not be a problem. But I do get to hear people say ha! Sasha you have to calm down o! because you know you might be scaring men away but then I say what have I done to scare anyone. I mean this is what I do and so it depends really on the individual. It's not about age or about any thing. It's about the confidence of the person involved. I don't see why you should see my performances as a deterant to anything that you might have in mind.
What kind of a man will like to have?
God fearing. I know that sounds more like a cliche now you know let him be tall, dark and handsome but you know for real I want my man to be God fearing. The thing is when a man fears God then you should know that every thing else follows. I also want him to be someone that is very confident, hardworking and has ambitions.
And is there a man who fits that picture now in your life?
(laughs) I don't talk about my personal life if that's what you mean.
Ok tell us how you were able to combine law and music?
It wasn't easy for most parts but as much as it wasn't easy it was easy, I don't know if that makes sense but most of the time I was in school things were a bit slow and then when I come back on holidays that's when I have my shows, concerts and interviews with the media is easy to conduct. I really had to priortise. But then, law and a music career have a lot of familiarities. You have to have a great memory and you have to be hard working as well. These are the core requirements and I think that it made it easier for me.
Will you ever practice law?
For me personally I've never really wanted to be in the court room although there are some parts of law in the advanced stages that are interesting to me such such as Mediation. Some people don't like to go court and so when there are issues they call in mediators to try and settle issues without necessarily going to court. I also like company secretary or corporate secretary where you could give or have legal advice. There are a lot of other things that could be done with law that you don't have to be in court to do. I like settling arguments but I don't think I'll love to do that in court.

"People are so book smart its amazing they don't have common sense. Bill O'Reilly's views are [a] representation of some one's grand fathers. I don't mean this in a disrespectful way but there is a huge age difference between him and the average hip hop consumer. Anyway thanks for the invite to your show old billy bobb when we become powerful enough to change the world in conversation Ill stop by lol. Now I'm gonna offer a definition of a BITCH. Bill O' reilly can understand in 2004 when andrea mackris accused you of sexual harassment. If it wasn't representation of your lust and you didn't do anything wrong. You encountered a (BI*CH) LMAO. Why stop by the news? My tweets are national news. I get world wide coverage from my cell phone SUCKER oh I'm sorry I used the S word LMAO. Laura ingrahams I had know idea who you were on fox news after a little research. I'm impressed you seem to be very smart there no reason a good women like you isn't married . I want to date you. Laura listen baby I don't know if this helps me in any way but between me and you. I've been rumored to be pretty well endowed. Lol. On second thought after reading your anti homosexual I should call GLAD on your ASS Lol."
Laura replied 50 and Chris Brown below: 'Fiddy, as some now call him, I just call him quarter. 50 comes out and he slams me and that's fine. It's degrading and that's fine. It's the same degrading lyrics and degrading words that are used [in their lyrics]. He mad? **mocks Cam'Ron** It's a little issue with syntax and grammar but whatever, it's all disposable language. Again, they proved my point. It' s not just 'oh, it's music and what the kids listen to', it infuses how they deal with people and they can't answer an argument so they attack me and that's fine. – Laura
The bigger question is, can 50 handle Bill? That would be interesting to see.

As harrowing testimony emerged from the holiday island where scores of youngsters were mown down by a gunman dressed as a policeman, Norway's premier said the country would emerge stronger from the "cruel act of violence".
"Never since the Second World War has our country been hit by a crime on this scale," Jens Stoltenberg told journalists in a press conference as police searched for more bodies on the idyllic Utoeya island.
While there was no official confirmation of the suspect's identity, he was widely named by the local media as Anders Behring Breivik.
According to information the suspect posted online, he is an "ethnic" Norwegian and a "Christian fundamentalist," police spokesman Roger Andersen said, adding his political opinions leaned "to the right".
Police commissioner Sveinung Sponheim confirmed that the suspect was a 32-year-old Norwegian who had posted anti-Muslim rhetoric online.
Norwegian media reported that the blond-haired Breivik described himself on his Facebook page as "conservative", "Christian", and interested in hunting and computer games like World of Warcraft and Modern Warfare 2.
The attacks on Friday afternoon were western Europe's deadliest since the 2004 Madrid bombings.
While there had been initial fears they might have been an act of revenge over Norway's participation in the campaigns in Afghanistan and Libya, the focus shifted when it emerged the suspect was a native Norwegian.
Speaking alongside the prime minister, Justice Minister Knut Storberget said there was no reason to raise the threat level.
Police lifted an advisory that had urged residents to stay home while a spokesman for the Oslo municipality said there was "no reason to ask people not to go into the city or not to go about their normal business."
Seven of the victims were killed in a massive explosion which ripped through government buildings, including Stoltenberg's office and the finance ministry, in downtown Oslo.
But it is thought that the bomber then caught a ferry to nearby Utoeya wearing a police uniform.
According to witness testimony, he claimed to be investigating the bomb attack and began opening fire with an automatic weapon after beckoning youngsters towards him.
Witnesses described scenes of panic and horror among the 560 people attending the youth camp. Some who tried to swim to safety were even shot in the water, according to witnesses.
Among the wounded was Adrian Pracon, who was shot in the left shoulder as the gunman opened fire.
Speaking to Australia's ABC network from hospital, he said the scene on the island was like a "Nazi movie".
"He was shooting people at close range and starting to shoot at us. He stood first 10 metres from me and shooting at people in the water," he said.
"He had an M16, it did look like a machine gun. When I saw him from the side yelling that he was about to kill us, he looked like he was taken from a Nazi movie or something.
"He started shooting at these people, so I laid down and acted as if I was dead. He stood maybe two metres away from me. I could hear him breathing. I could feel the heat of the machine gun.
"He tried everyone, he kicked them to see if they were alive, or he just shot them.
Stine Haheim, a Labour party lawmaker who was on the island at the time of the shooting, said that she was among a group of people who had fled to the shores of the island as they heard the gunfire.
"Then the policeman who was not a policeman pulled out a machinegun and started shooting a lot of people," she said.
"We are devastated by the tragic outcome. We have to hope that those who are missing will turn out okay," she told the BBC.
Norwegian police said they feared there could also be explosives on the island and officers were combing the island. Their updated death toll on the island released on Saturday morning stood at 84.
Stoltenberg had been due to give a speech on Saturday to the 560 people attending the youth camp on the island, organised by the ruling Labour party.
"Utoeya is a place I have visited every summer since 1974. I have known joy, commitment and safety there. Now the place has been through brutal violence and a paradise for youth has been turned into hell in a few hours," he said.
The prime minister said Norway, one of Europe's most peaceful countries, would not be intimidated.
"The message to whoever attacked us, the message from all of Norway is that you will not destroy us, you will not destroy our democracy and our ideals for a better world," he said.
There was widespread international condemnation with US President Barack Obama saying the attacks were "a reminder that the entire international community has a stake in preventing this kind of terror from occurring."
The Norwegian capital is a well-known symbol of international peace efforts and home to the Nobel Peace Prize.
She disclosed to Showtime that her music career was moving on to new levels as she is billed for a music tour of the United States.
￼According, to the ebony skinned Ijoba Orun crooner "I've been busy promoting my second album, but that has to make way for my tour of the US. My shows will take me to Houston, Baultimore, Chicago, and Atlanta and I'd be away for about five to six weeks."
Lara affirmed that the tour would spotlights just on her saying. "I won't be having any other artiste or gospel singer on my train. It's strictly going to be a Lara George thing.
I'm trying to get the American people to familiarize themselves with my music and hopefully widen my audience a bit. After my tour I'd be definitely going back to the studios to start on new set of songs but I'll leave the rest of the details for now as a surprise."
Lara George had jumped into the music scene back in the days when she appeared with the group Kush and did Lets live together. Her last album titled Koma Si was released under Soforte entertainment, a company run by her husband, Gbenga George.
This is in harmony with Sony's global Television Redefined proposition which is based on the need for Television to adapt itself to complement the increasing variety of hi-tech entertainment options for the home.
According to Sony Gulf Managing Director, Osamu Miura, the product is aimed at redefining home entertainment to meet the needs of today's contemporary and savvy consumer because the 2011 Bravia LCD/led tv series offers smarter, sophisticated and more social entertainment that redefines the television experience.
A New York City woman has filed a lawsuit against JetBlue Airlines after she was kicked off her flight and questioned about whether or not she was wearing panties.
Malinda Knowles, 27, claims that during a pre flight walk through, a JetBlue supervisor put a walkie talkie between her legs to see if she was wearing underpants.
"He said, 'I don't want to see your panties or anything but do you have any on?'" Knowles recalled yesterday."I didn't want to show him anything. He wanted me to basically show him my crotch. I was completely humiliated. It was vulgar. It was macho. It was rude."
According to Knowles, she was escorted off the plane and forced to prove that she was wearing shorts under her baggy shirt. After the confirmation, she returned to the plane only to be told the pilot would not fly with her on the plane.
"He said, 'The captain is refusing to fly you today. We need to remove you from the flight,'" said Knowles.
She was forced to take a later flight which delayed her departure by four hours.
"I really feel like the guy just wanted to demean me in some way," she said.
Knowles is seeking unspecified damages in the civil suit which accuses the airline worker of assault and battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
