People across the world got together with friends on 22nd February to watch the Academy Awards - and for Sir Elton John, those friends happened to be some of the biggest names in entertainment!
Since 1992, EJAF (Elton John AIDS Foundation) has raised over 321 million USD to help combat AIDS/HIV. One of the biggest events on EJAF's calendar is that of the Academy Awards Ceremony - for the last 23 years, Sir Elton John has hosted a special Academy Awards viewing party, in which celebrities from all areas of the entertainment industry come together to watch the Oscars, whilst raising money for the foundation. This year was no exception.

Of course, as with any Oscar party, members of the Hollywood elite were in attendance, like Alec and Hilaria Baldwin. But also, tremendous musical talent flocked to West Hollywood Park in Los Angeles. In addition to Sir Elton John, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne were there to pose for pictures, as were Miley Cyrus, LIL' KIM and Kylie Minogue. Moby and Beck also stopped by to help raise awareness for the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Lil' Kim is coming at Nicki Minaj again with a couple of new diss tracks.
Not like anybody is keeping score at home, but the feud between Nicki Minaj and Lil' Kim just picked up some steam again. Another war of the words, female rap mogul LIL' KIM is taking shots yet again at Minaj, but this time its gone too far. Lil' Kim didn't say anything out of the usual - it's just at the point now where it's past embarrassing, and somebody needs to tell the woman to stop.
Lil' Kim is adding fuel to the fire yet again
Before this recent spat, what was the current status of the feud, and what was the reason for it in the first place? Ever since Minaj hit the music scene, she was subject to comparisons to other female rappers before her, but it wasn't until the 2008 mixtape, Sucka Free, that Lil' Kim started to take notice. "If you are going to steal my swag, you gonna have to pay," Lil' Kim said in regards to Minaj's early rise to success. Very intimidating. Minaj's alleged response to Kim's "copying" allegations was in her song 'Roman's Revenge' - a track off her wildly success debut, Pink Friday. Eventually, Lil' Kim fired back with more than just words - she put her disses out in the form of a mixtape in 2011 entitled Black Friday, which allegedly sold 113,000 copies in the span of a day on PayPal. Kim said that these sales made her the number one seller on the website, a claim which PayPal then denied because they don't keep track of sales. Cringeworthy.

Kim names her daughter Royal Reign, but could the father be rap royalty too?
Lil Kim has surprised her fans by giving her newborn daughter the slightly unconventional yet unique name, Royal Reign. The 39 year-old rapper gave birth to a baby girl at 9:58 a.m. Monday on the 9th June at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey, a source has confirmed to ET.
Royal Reign, Kim's first child, reportedly weighed in at 6 pounds, 5 ounces, and measured 19.5 inches long. It is believed that New York rapper Mr. Papers is the baby's father after he attended the baby's "Royal Shower" last month and has retweeted several messages of congratulations related to the birth.
Kim first announced her pregnancy back in February where she appeared at the MAC Cosmetics and The Blonds Fashion Week afterparty and surprised other guests with her unmistakable baby bump. However, to this day, she has not publically confirmed whether the father is Mr. Papers or not.

Lil’ Kim, who is expecting her first child, shared her baby registry list over social media last weekend ahead of her royal themed shower.
Were you fretting over what to get Lil’ Kim for her baby shower on Sunday? Well someone must have been, because Kim’s assistant decided to tweet out a list of places where the rapper was registered, for gift buying fans. Tacky? Some thought so, while others just seemed happy for the heads-up.
LIL' KIM, accepting gifts, but check the list first
Kim’s assistant, who goes by the name Noel Noel on Twitter, posted a photo of the list, writing that Kim was registered under the name Kimberley Jones and that fans should make sure “they check off your gift from the registry after purchase.” He also included an address where the gifts could be mailed to, because it seems buying a gift does not guarantee entry to the shower. Kim later retweeted the post to her 1.19million followers while also expressing her excitement over the upcoming shower.

Lil Kim may be pregnant, but the rapper has no plans for slowing down, ''I'm still going to work. I'm still going to be hardcore, the baby has made me even more of a beast!''
Lil Kim made the pleasant surprise of announcing her pregnancy in New York City on Wednesday (Feb 12th).
It became pretty clear that the 39 year-old was pregnant when she hit the New York Fashion Week sporting a rather large baby bump.
She then addressed this while onstage at the Blonds Fashion Week after-party, singing 'Lighter's Up,' in a tribute to Biggie Smalls.

The rapper looked terrific as she was carried into a NYFW show.
LIL' KIM is pregnant! The rapper made it clear for all too see when she turned up at The Blonds show during New York Fashion week. The 39 year-old singer styled up her very obvious bump with a neon pink fur coat, Hello Kitty boots, a busy, skin-tight, print dress and tons of jewels.

Miley Cyrus wishes she could be like her hero Lil Kim everyday.
The 'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker's Twitter selfie of this year's Halloween outfit hardly shocked us; a purple wig covering her cropped locks and an embellished purple jumpsuit that covered only one side of her torso, while a flower shaped pasty concealed her left breast (well, nipple) and two other stickies were applied to her left arm. Yes, there wasn't much left to the imagination boob-wise, but judging by her recent fashion ventures, this was rather tame.

Happy Halloween! Let Miley Cyrus give you some costume inspiration.
Last year it was Nicki Minaj, this year it’s Lil’ Kim – can you spot the pattern in Miley Cyrus’ Halloween costumes? Miley does seem to be taking some cues on attitude and performance from the hip hop divas, so it makes sense that she’d want to dress up as them for Halloween. There was that saying about imitation and flattery after all.
The borderline NSFW look was still one of the better ones we've seen this year.
Once upon a time, the most shocking thing on television was not Ms Cyrus’ latex-clad form, but Lil’ Kim herself. During the 1999 VMAs (because of course it was the VMAs) the rapper set tongues wagging and prompted thousands of concerned citizens to write Angry Letter with her infamous purple pastie covering the bit of skin that still remains too scandalous to show on television (but only if women do it.)
