“I’m on the mend…Some days you know, it’s just not there…like Ariana Grande…our albums came out on the same day and around the same time both of our blood vessels popped, but I had it on both sides she had it on one side and she took a break. Tay Tay went on the road! She just had a baby… OK!? She don’t live with her mama, everybody wants their checks on the first… So Tamar went on the road. I didn’t allow myself time to heal so therefore its going to take me longer and I’m not ashamed. But I can sing my face off at the end of the day its there and I don’t have anything to prove to anybody because whatever I had to prove I've already proven to myself.“

It appears that things may be even worse than thought between Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom. The couple, who are currently estranged, reportedly both attended the Jay Z concert at the Staples Center on Monday night, but did not go together nor even speak to each other during the evening. According to E! Online, the pair sat in completely different areas of the arena, with Khloe opting to mingle with fellow concertgoers while Lamar sat in a private VIP suite with his father Joe and some friends.
Avoiding each other completely, the duo allegedly did not come in contact with one another.
What motivation to win the game: Mike Ditka! Last night during Monday Night Football as the Bears took on the Cowboys, Ditka was honored by getting his Bears jersey retired. Ditka is an icon. I lived in Chicago for years & everyone loves Da Coach.
There will never be another Mike Ditka, a football coach who became a cultural force of nature, and now there will never be another No. 89 for the Chicago Bears.
Ditka, who won an NFL championship as a tight end for George Halas in 1963 and coached the Bears to a Super Bowl in 1985, finally got his jersey retired Monday night in a halftime ceremony in a game against his other franchise, the Dallas Cowboys.
“I think Mr. Halas would approve,” he said in a news conference.
Without a hat to cover his trademark mane of hair, Ditka shivered through a brief ceremony in the frigid cold — the wind chill was minus-9 degrees at the start of the game — that included his Hall of Fame bust and a Super Bowl trophy. He ended it by saying, “Thank you, thank you, thank you,” and with a thrust of his fist, “Go Bears!”
After that was over, Ditka came into the Bears news conference room with a clear message.
