Lil' Kim Inspired By Martha Stewart

Convicted hip-hop star LIL' KIM is taking inspiration from domestic goddess MARTHA STEWART as she prepares to begin her year-and-a-day jail sentence.

The NOT TONIGHT rapper - real name KIMBERLY JONES - is set to be incarcerated in a Connecticut prison on 19 September (05) after being found guilty of lying to a Grand Jury - be she hopes she will handle the experience as well as Stewart.

The 64-year-old recently completed a prison term and a period of house arrest following her conviction for lying about a stock sale, and Jones is amazed that Stewart "came out (of jail) looking better than when she went in".

She tells the New York Daily News, "Her courage and strength is definitely encouraging."

Lil Kim Gives Birth To Royalty, But Still Won't Say Who The Father Is 4237856 News

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.

The naming of Royal Reign is just the icing on a regal-themed pregnancy: Kim's "Royal" baby shower was held at New York's Broad Street Ballroom and was a rather affair. Trumpeters announced the arrival of guests on the pink and blue carpet, and Kim and Mr. Papers were fashionably late before they gave the waiting paps an eyeful with some passionate kissing.

Additionally, fans who wanted to buy gifts for Kim and the baby were instructed to send items to a "Queen Bee" PO box with high end retailers like Petit Tresor and Tiffany & Co topping the list of desired purchases. At the time, Kim hinted at her daughter's planned name by including a tiara on the invitation and save-the-date announcements.

What Do You Buy The Rapper Who Has Everything? Lil’ Kim Shares Baby Gift List With Fans 4196099 News

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 KimLil' 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.

More: Lil Kim and other expectant stars

According to the list Kim was registered at Tiffany's, Petit Tresor, Bel Bambini, Buy Buy Baby and Babies R Us. But what did the Queen Bee of rap have on her list? Well the items ranged from more the high end pricey goods such as a $575 sterling silver baby cup from Tiffany & Co to the budget friendly $9.99 Snow White bib and booties set from Buy Buy Baby.

Fans gave a mixed reaction to the move with some calling it tacky, cheap and trashy while others seemed happy to know exactly what Kim wanted. However her assistant responded angrily to one Instagram user who speculated that the rapper must be struggling if she needed fans to buy her gifts. He wrote, “no dumbass. Her fans have been asking since she announced she was pregnant where they can send gifts so Of course we love them and made a Po box and included them.”

More: Kim's friends 'will help with birth'

Kim’s ‘royal shower’ took place on Sunday at New York’s Broad Street Ballroom and was a predictably lavish and attention grabbing affair. Trumpeters announced the arrival of guests on the pink and blue carpet, but when Kim herself appeared with boyfriend Mr Papers, they gave photogs an eyeful with their graphic kissing. RadarOnline also reported that the couple kept guests waiting for four hours, but a source did say that when the couple finally arrived, “everyone had a blast. It was a good vibe, great people, and Kim looked so happy.”

Lil kimLil' Kim being tacky? Unbeleivable

Was it a tacky move for Kim to share her registry list? A little, perhaps, but she wasn't actually asking fans to buy her anything. If some do want to send her gifts, then they might as well buy her what she wants. Either way we doubt Kim’s going to be too worried about public opinion, after al,l this is the woman who refers to herself as the Queen Bee. Now, as for the tackiness of the 'royal' themed baby shower? Well that’s a whole other matter.

Lil Kim "Thrilled" To Be Pregnant But Vows To Remain "Hardcore" 4066801 News

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.

"It's also going to be Biggie's birthday and the anniversary of his death soon so we [as she points to her belly] love you."

However, the Brooklyn-born rapper isn't planning on taking anytime off during the pregnancy as she then said, ''I'm still going to work. I'm still going to be hardcore, the baby has made me even more of a beast!''

But before taking the stage and attending the event, Kim spoke to Us Weekly about becoming a first time mom.

"I'm so excited, overjoyed! In heaven, waiting for my little sunshine," she stated.

"I can't wear corsets and all my favorite sexy clothes [anymore]," Kim joked of how her infamous style has altered. "But it's a very beautiful thing and I'm so thrilled."

The Grammy-Award winning artist also affirmed, "I'm still going to work. I'm going to be a working mom! New music and all that."

Kim wanted the baby's father to remain private for the time being but on Thursday afternoon, shortly after the pregnancy news hit the headlines, the mystery man's identity was revealed.

New York based rapper Mr. Papers, who Kim was first reportedly dating in June 2012, wrote on his Instagram, "I heard everybody looking for me ?????????????????", which captioned a photo of himself.

Mr Papers' twitter account, who coincidently calls himself 'Daddy', has also been retweeted congratulatory tweets all day, thus confirming he is the father of the unborn child.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Miley Cyrus' Halloween Costume? Well, it's Lil Kim Of Course 3932088 News

Miley Cyrus thrilled Lil Kim so much when she donned an almost identical replica of her risque 1999 VMA outfit this Halloween, that all she wanted was to cop a feel.

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. 

The outfit was pretty much exactly the same as rapper and singer Lil Kim's at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards - whether she was trying to make a point that she's not the only controversial dresser to have ever graced the award show, or that she just unconditionally adores Lil Kim, is hard to say.

Either way, Miley's muse was thoroughly impressed and posted a rather honest post on Twitter in response. 'Awwww. Look at my baby @mileycyrus tonight!!! Looking GORGEOUS!!! I wish I was there to squeeze your boob :) :) Love...', she said.

The feeling's probably mutual, as Miley's not exactly afraid of getting up close and personal. It seems that she has no regrets about her unusual choice of fancy dress either, posting during her night out on October 31st 2013: 'I wanna be @lilkim everyyyyydayyyy'.

Miley Cyrus thrilled Lil Kim so much when she donned an almost identical replica of her risque 1999 VMA outfit this Halloween, that all she wanted was to cop a feel.

The Blonde Wig Has Been Off For A While, But Miley Cyrus Put On A Purple One To Channel Her Inner Lil' Kim This Halloween 3930786 News

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.

<iframe src="//instagram.com/p/gHriOzQzHc/embed/" width="636" height="710" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" allowtransparency="true"></iframe>
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.)

<iframe src="//instagram.com/p/gHtRHxQzJG/embed/" width="636" height="710" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" allowtransparency="true"></iframe>
We can definitely see Cyrus following in the diva's footsteps.

So can you guess which outfit it was that Cyrus chose to recreate for tonight’s festivities. The singer dropped a few instagram hints at her costume earlier this week, showing off her newly acquired bright purple wig. Of course, not everyone was a fan of the revealing getup, but judging by the photos, Miley has taken fellow pop princess Britney Spears’ advice from a recent track and was definitely working it. So apparently, while Miley has made it clear that she will never again put on the bright blonde wig that made her famous, she’s not averse to all kinds of dressup.

Miley Cyrus' Lil Kim Halloween Costume Is...Actually Pretty Good [Pictures] 3930409 News

Sure Miley Cyrus has come in for some pretty heavy criticism over the past couple of months - some of it deserved, some of it not so much. However, one thing we can't accuse ol' Miley of being is uninteresting and - to a certain extent - unoriginal. With every celebrity seemingly dressing up as Miley for Halloween, everyone's favorite, or least favorite twerker, decided to try something a little different this year.

<iframe src="//instagram.com/p/gHriOzQzHc/embed/" width="636" height="710" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" allowtransparency="true"></iframe>

In fact, Cyrus went back into the history books of the MTV Video Music Awards - the scene of her fateful twerk with Robin Thicke - to find inspiration for Halloween 2013. In those dusty tomes she came across Lil Kim and her famous pink jumpsuit and pasty that made waves at the 1999 awards ceremony. 

Kim, now 39, was famously groped onstage by co-presenter Diana Ross, who couldn't resist grabbing at her...breast...as the audience watched aghast.

It was certainly a left-field choice of outfit and one applauded by Lil Kim herself who gave Miley her seal of approval via Twitter, "Awwww. Look at my baby @mileycyrus tonight!!! Looking GORGEOUS!!!," adding, "I wish I was there to squeeze your boob :) :) Love U so much !!!!" weirdly.

As we mentioned, EVERYONE dressed as Miley Cyrus this Halloween - even her best buddy Cheyne Thomas who turned up to a party in her famous teddy bear leotard from the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. On top of that, Paris Hilton, Joan Rivers and Crystal Harris (with Hugh Hefner as Thicke) all opted for Miley costumes for this year's celebrity bashes.

<iframe src="//instagram.com/p/gHtRHxQzJG/embed/" width="636" height="710" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" allowtransparency="true"></iframe>

Miley has previously spoken of her kinship to How Many Licks rapper Lil Kim, telling Billboard, "In my past life, I feel like that was me. I feel like Lil Kim is who I am on the inside," she explained. "She just makes me happy...I just love her. And I can't help that I love her."

When pushed on her favorite female artist of all time, Miley said: "You can't choose one-if you say Kim, then you've gotta say Nicki.Nicki is now like my Lil Kim of my generation."

Clearly Miley has a penchant for dressing as her female heroes on Halloween. In 2012, she wore "butt pads", a yellow wig and leopard print bodysuit to get in character as Starships rapper Minaj. 

The We Can't Stop singer - easily one of the most successful singers of the year - has been warming up for Halloween all week. On Tuesday she shared 'Miley Jack-O-Lanterns,' three pumpkins carved with drug images.
