Beyoncé upgrades her mom
If you noticed that Tina Knowles has been looking especially snatched lately, thank Beyoncé, who helped her mom freshen up her face now that she’s single again.
A source told Bossip.com that Bey thought her mom wasn’t feel as confident about her looks after splitting from Mathew Knowles, so she decided to help her out.
“Beyoncé told her mom she knew she was feeling a little insecure about her looks and wanted to do something to make her mom feel better," the source said. "Tina agreed, but only to something subtle. She said she did not want to look stunned or have a frozen smile on her face like the Joker from Batman. Beyoncé looked into a Lifestyle Lift and they agreed on it.”
A Lifestyle Lift is like a mini-face lift that takes less than an hour, and the results last for a few years.

Justin Combs gets football scholarship
Diddy’s son Justin Combs will be going to UCLA on a full-ride football scholarship. Scout.com reports that Justin accepted a very generous offer to hit the gridiron for the college.
"I’m committed to UCLA,"Justin revealed to Scout.com. "I was silently committed to UCLA for a while, but now was the time."
The 5’9", 175-pound corner back had also considered offers from Iowa, Iowa State, Virginia, Arizona State and Cincinnati. But when he visited UCLA’s campus, he said, "It was love at first sight."
A rep at Justin’s high school, Iona Prep, feels that Justin earned his spot on the UCLA Bruins fair and square. "His work ethic is tremendous; he is not a great football player because of his dad, it’s because of all the work he puts into his game," said Darla James, the school’s assistant to the head coach.
Diddy calls the news “one of the proudest moments” of his life in a statement. He added, “This is everything a father could want in his son, for him to excel at what he loves to do."
Rocsi speaks on Webbie incident
Rocsi is finally opening up about what happened between her and Webbie that got him banned from BET.
The New Orleans rapper made a hasty retreat from "106 & Park" earlier this year after being accused of getting a little too familiar with Rocsi.
"He disrespected me," Rocsi told Peter Bailey about the run-in where Webbie sexually harassed her. "The network would not allow anyone to disrespect their hosts in that manner I hope that he understands it. It was a very upsetting incident."
As shaken up as she was, though, Rocsi said it was natural for her to defend herself in the situation.
"I have thick skin, but you’re at your job and someone sexually harasses you in a manor that is very vulgar and disgusting," she said. "I have no shame of sticking up for myself and telling you that you’re improper right now."
