Prince Harry spoke about his charity work Wednesday night in South Africa, and of his late mother, who instilled the passion in him for giving back.
Princess Diana worked to help those with HIV/AIDS, and now Harry, 28, is doing the same in the tiny kingdom of Lesotho, where he’s visiting now.

For the most part, following his same-sex relationship admission, Frank Ocean has received nothing but love from those in the music industry.
But to the occasional hater or misguided critic, such as Lil Scrappy, 50 Cent has a message: You’re a complete moron!
“Anyone that has an issue with Frank Ocean is an idiot,” 50 Cent tells MTV UK. “I think Frank Ocean is a talented artist, I think he’s created material that made me know his name, that impressed me, with things he said on a song like ‘Novacane.’”
Fiddy does believe Ocean came out with this information for “marketing” purposes, but heMore >
Another day, another Kim Kardashian bikini photo.
Shortly after this reality star posted a pic of herself – supposedly UNphotoshopped and makeup free – on Twitter, the talentless professional celebrity has done so again – and you simply won’t believe it:
This one is a major cleavage shot.
Good morning Miami, Kim wrote as the caption to the image, which features a skintight swimsuit, the edge of a boat and crystal blue water.
You might say Kardashian is fishing for compliments.

The man suing John Travolta for sexual battery is responding to the actor’s denials, saying he can in fact prove the salacious behavior took place.
Marty Singer, Travolta’s lawyer, says the lawsuit from the anonymous masseur is totally unfounded, as John wasn’t even in town at the time.
Despite his claim that Travolta was not in L.A. January 16, and that the suit is “complete fiction and fabrication,” John Doe tells a different story.
“I have proof to support the truth that I’m telling,” he said.
Much like his name, he won’t reveal specific details … yet.

It’s long been suspected, but former Heroes star Zachary Quinto made the announcement this week: he’s gay.
Coming off a performance on stage in Angels in America – playing a character who abandons his AIDS-stricken boyfriend – Quinto spoke to New York Magazine this week and said the off-Broadway play was “the most challenging thing I’ve ever done as an actor, and the most rewarding,” adding:
“At the same time, as a gay man, it made me feel like there’s still so much work to be done, and there’s still so many things that need to be looked at and addressed.”

Jenelle Evans will somehow go to jail for eviscerating Britany Truett in a fight back in March. The Teen Mom star was given a 30-day suspended sentence today.
Evans was charged with simple affray, which is less bad than the aggravated assault she arguably could have been hit with, and also got 12 months probation.
If she stays clean for a year, she’ll avoid jail. We’d say that’s a toss-up …
Evans was fined $100, must take anger management courses, do community service, and have zero contact with the girl whose face she smashed to a pulp during the fightMore >
