50 Cent took to Instagram.com after the BET Awards to criticize organizers for allegedly rewarding performers with awards, including Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar and the cast of TV show Empire.
He wrote in the caption, "Man everything is fixed, it's a damn shame. Everybody who performed gets an award. Am I the only one noticing this?
The rapper also made a video stating that the awards were fixed while mocking his rival Sean 'Diddy' Combs for his embarrassing stage fall during the Bad Boys Records performance, saying, "It's a damn shame what happened to the BET Awards... The highlight of the whole goddamn show was Puffy (Combs) busting his a**."
Nicole Scherzinger who turned 37 over the weekend was photographed on vacation in Mykonos, Greece with Swiss soccer player Pajtim Kasami (2nd pic) and the pair was photographed smooching.
Despite her new romance, Lewis Hamilton, who dated Scherzinger on/off from 2007 to 2015, took to Instagram.com to share a cute image of himself with the singer and extend his best wishes.
He writes on the photosharing site, "Dear friend, Through the years we shared a lot, I wouldn't have changed a thing. All the experiences made me the man I'm proud to be right now. The memories together will never be taken away no matter how old we get and I'm thankful for the time we had. I'm wishing you the happiest of birthdays, and may God continue to bless you in all that you do."
Whenever Nicole is photographed with a new man (Hill Harper & Drake) in the past, after breaking up with Lewis, he always responded and they would reunite. Again, he responded via social media.

"BONE CHILLING" (TRUE STORY REMAINS UNSOLVED)
Lilly Lindestrom's murder was horrific and sinister. She was a prostitute who serviced numerous men including one black man (which has been conveniently omitted from her story). Allegedly, this enraged a few of her male clients and she was found dead.
Lilly Lindestrom was a 32-year-old divorcee living in Stockholm. She lived in a small apartment and made her living as a prostitute. On the day of her murder, earlier, she had beendiscussing plans for the evening’s May Day celebrations with her friend Minnie Jansson, a 35-year-old woman who lived on the same floor and made her living in the same way.
Lilly was nicknamed the “call girl” because she was the only person in the building with a phone at the time.
Lilly received a call from a potential client, asking if he could come over. Lilly agreed, and Minnie left her to it. Minnie only saw her friend alive again briefly later that day, when the younger woman called to borrow condoms. When Minnie knocked on Lilly’s door several hours later, there was no answer. Minnie thought that perhaps Lilly had gone to the celebration with the man.It wasn’t until three days later that the police were finally called.
When they broke down the door, Lilly was found facedown on her bed, completely naked, with a condom still in her anus. She’d been killed by three blows to the head from a blunt object. Her clothes were neatly folded nearby. Yet there was an even more disturbing and sinister aspect to this murder. In the room was a bloodstained gravy ladle. Further inspection revealed that the blood had been drained from Lilly’s body, and the killer had used the ladle to drink it. Despite the authorities’ best efforts, the story leaked, and the local press nicknamed the unknown killer the "Atlas Vampire," due to the area of the city in which Lilly lived.
Eighty of Lilly’s customers were investigated, but no suspects were revealed. Minnie hadn’t recognized the voice on the phone from what she’d heard, but she commented that the man had seemed sober and polite. There didn’t seem to be any fingerprints on any of the suspicious items at the scene. One theory was that the killer was a police officer who had bludgeoned Lilly with his truncheon and knew how to cover his tracks.
Either way, Lilly’s final customer was never found.

"TRANSGENDER WOMAN SAYS HER MALE IDENTITY WAS THE SERIAL KILLER"
A transgender woman accused of being a serial killer is blaming the 1990 murders of three prostitutes in Washington State on Douglas Perry, the person she identified as before her transition.
Donna Perry, 62, told police in an affidavit filed in Spokane Superior Court that she had gender reassignment surgery in Thailand, and when a person transitions from male to female, "there's a great downturn in violence."
She also told police that she intentionally had the operation, which she underwent in 2000, "as a permanent way to control violence."
Perry is being held on $1 million bond in a Spokane County jail and declined to make a court appearance on murder charges this week, according to ABC affiliate KTLY, which first reported the story.
In a case that has been cold for more than two decades, the affidavit filed Jan. 14 says Perry was linked through DNA evidence to the killings of Yolanda Sapp, Kathleen Brisbois and Nickie Lowe, whom police say were prostitutes.
Police allege that Perry shot the women and left their naked bodies on the banks of the Spokane River. She was arrested earlier this year and served jail time for federal weapons charges. Police say they matched Perry's fingerprints to the crime scenes, according to the affidavit.
The accused's reported defense that it was not Donna Perry but Douglas Perry who killed the women is headline-grabbing, but not necessarily a true reflection of how transgender people view their nonconforming identity, according to mental health experts.
"For some people, it's a metaphor: 'I was a different person before I came out,'" said Dr. Jack Drescher, a New York City psychiatrist who sat on the work group on sexual and gender identity disorders contained in the DSM-5 -- the latest edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual.
"It's a certain way that they use the metaphor when transitioning for those who were very unhappy before and now are happy," he said. "But it's different when a person makes a claim that somehow they have no linkage to the person they used to be –- that would be more of a disturbed presentation."
Having what is now called gender dysphoria in the DSM-5, does not necessarily mean that a person has impaired judgement, which is often a legal defense, according to Drescher.
"It's wrong to generalize from this person's life – it's not typical of the transgender experience," said Drescher, who does not know Perry and is not connected to the case.
When detectives interviewed Perry and asked why the murders had stopped, she replied, "Douglas didn't stop, Donna stopped it," according to the affidavit. Since then, Perry said she is "paranoid and emotional but won't hurt anybody."
"I'm not going to admit I killed anybody, I didn't. Donna has killed nobody," she told police. When pressed if "Doug did" the killings, Perry replied, "I don't know if Doug did or not, it was 20 years ago and I have no idea whether he did or did not," according to the affidavit.
In 1998, Perry served 18 months in an Oregon prison. The affidavit says that when Washington detectives interviewed a cell mate, she told them that Perry allegedly confessed to killing nine prostitutes "because she couldn't breed and the women had the ability to have children and they were wasting it being 'pond scum.'"
Perry also reportedly told the cellmate she was a "sociopath," according to the affidavit. A spokesman in the Spokane County Superior Court Clerk's Office told ABCNews.com that Perry does not yet have a lawyer. Deputy Prosecutor Sharon Hedlund did not return calls.
As for Perry' claim that sex surgery stems violence, experts say there is no evidence that accompanying hormone therapy plays a role in diminishing aggression.
Estrogen is part of the hormone protocol recommended by the standards of care for gender reassignment surgery set by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health.
Older studies have linked the male hormone testosterone to enhanced aggression, but a more recent Penn State University study says popular misconceptions may be inaccurate.
Chemical castration, using Depo Provera to reduce libido and sexual activity, has been controversially used among sex offenders.
Jack Halberstam, who is transgender and a professor of American and gender studies at University of Southern California, said that Perry's publicized statements are "very sketchy and a desperate defense ploy."
"It harkens back to the discourse on multiple personalities a decade ago –- that another personality has taken over my body space," he said. "It's an idea that we are simply competing personalities or selves. If you talk about transgenderism or psychopathology, nobody really believes that stuff. That research is now pretty much flawed."
Halberstam said Perry had a "weak defense."
"Even if we as a person are less aggressive once we resolved a gender disorder, it does not absolve the responsibility of killing three women," he said. "As a legal defense, putting away the science, it's absolute nonsense."
He is also critical of the way in which Perry's case reinforces negative stereotypes about those who are transgender.
"The science is very shaky and the rational that why [Doug] may have committed the murders was that he envied the maternal function of the female body, seems to seal his fate. Making being transgender into a motivating factor for murder is almost like the horror film, 'Dressed to Kill.' It feeds directly into the horror stories about gender identity disorder."
"NOSTALGIA" (BLACK CINEMA-HISTORY VS. HOLLYWOOD)
Had James Brown really been born dead?
Yes. According to the autobiography James Brown: The Godfather of Soul, the Get On Up true story confirms that James Brown was stillborn or at least appeared stillborn. His Aunt Minnie breathed into his lungs to help give him oxygen until he began to take his own first breaths. Much like Aunt Honey in the movie, it is a story that James Brown often told as evidence that he was able to overcome his obstacles even as an infant.
Was James Brown really deserted by his mother and father when he was a child?
To some degree, yes. James was born in a one-room sharecropper's shack near the Georgia border in South Carolina in 1933. His father Joe (pictured below) did have a gambling addiction and was away from home for long periods, eventually enlisting in the Navy (although not until James was older). Like in the movie, James went to live with his aunt, referred to as Aunt Honey (real name Hansone Washington), who ran a brothel.
His mother Susie's (top pic) abandonment was likely less willful than the movie portrays. Friends say that she left because Brown's father had tried to kill her. The movie echoes this somewhat in the scene where Joe threatens her with a gun (in real life he is rumored to have tried to push her out of a window). Contrary to the movie, city records indicate that Susie lived with her son for periods of time as James grew up.
As a boy, was James Brown really paid to box other black boys while blindfolded?
Yes. Like in the movie, the autobiography James Brown: The Godfather of Soul supports the scene where a young James Brown is paid a dollar to exchange punches with other black boys. They were blindfolded with one hand tied behind their backs. A boxing glove was placed on the free hand, and they swung wildly trying to hit one another. According to Brown, these events were known as battle royals and were held for the comedic entertainment of the white audience.
Did Little Richard really persuade James Brown's group to make a demo record?
Yes. Little Richard, who Brown admired, put them in contact with his manager, Clint Brantley, who agreed to manage them and made plans for them to record a demo at a local radio station. They performed "Please, Please, Please," which in 1956 became their first R&B hit. After a string of unsuccessful follow-ups, they found a new manager, Ben Bart (portrayed by Dan Aykroyd, who shared the screen with the real James Brown in the 1980 John Landis comedy The Blues Brothers), and in 1958 their song "Try Me" became a national chart-topper, reaching Number One in R&B and Number 48 in pop.
Did several members of the group really quite because James Brown was given top billing?
Yes. Like in the Get On Up movie, the true story confirms that original group members Bobby Byrd, NaFloyd Scott, Sylvester Keels, Nash Knox and Johnny Terry left the group in 1957 due to group managers Ben Bart and Clint Brantley giving James Brown top billing, renaming the group "James Brown and The Famous Flames."
Did James Brown really finance his Live at the Apollo album himself?
Yes. "The Get On Up," true story confirms that King Records, believing that there was no commercial potential in a live album, refused to finance it. So, Brown paid for it himself and the album went on to sell a million copies, landing at Number Two in 1963. The Live at the Apollo album remained on the pop chart for 14 months, an unprecedented feat for a black music album at the time.
Did James Brown's mother Susie really show up unexpectedly at his Live at the Apollo performance?
This scene was most likely made-up for dramatic effect. In reality, James Brown's then-wife Velma Warren tracked down his mother Susie in Brooklyn in the mid-1960s and revived their relationship.
Did the plane James Brown was on really almost get shot down while flying over Vietnam?
No. We found no evidence supporting the movie's depiction of the transport plane James Brown was on being nearly shot down when he was flying into Vietnam. That's not to say that they were never in danger.
"I was scared to death," says singer and former girlfriend Marva Whitney, who Brown brought with him to Vietnam. "...especially in the planes when they, every now and then we could kinda peep out the window and it's something to look up, down, and all you see is fire, fire, and then they tell you you have to lay down in the belly of the plane. So we laid down. We were very obedient cause we didn't want to get shot. And I think he felt comfortable if he had at least a stick, to fight in case somebody came, and he said, 'I must have a stick to protect myself.' I was very glad that he did.
I heard that Rev. Al Sharpton was one of James Brown's managers, is that true?
Yes. Though not included in the Get On Up movie, Rev. Al Sharpton was James Brown's road manager at one time.
