Diem Brown, who rose to fame as a competitor on MTV’s “The Challenge” series and later became an entertainment reporter, has died after a long battle with cancer. She was 32.

NEW YORK (AP) — Diem Brown has lost a long battle with cancer.

#RIPDiemBrown

The reality star and advocate for cancer survivors died Friday in a New York hospital, according to the E! Network. She was 32.

Brown first won fame nearly a decade ago as a competitor on MTV’s ‘‘Real World/Road Rules Challenge.’’ She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at age 23, and announced her real-life challenge on the show.

Undaunted, she continued to appear on ‘‘The Challenge’’ until recently, because, she said, it obliged her to keep pushing herself.

‘‘But there were times I felt alone, and overwhelmed by side effects and medical expenses,’’ she told The Associated Press in 2012.

That led her to establish Medgift.com, an online gift registry enabling those with medical troubles to seek financial help as well as physical and emotional support. Her TV celebrity, she explained, gave her ‘‘the opportunity to make lives of other patients better.’’

In a statement, MTV called Brown ‘‘a true fighter (who) brought passion to everything she touched.’’

And as recently as Tuesday, she still sounded a battle call by tweeting: ‘‘My doctors are seemingly giving up but I won’t & can’t rollover. Whatever option I have to LIVE I’m grabbing!’’

Miley Cyrus Sounds Off on Hair Comparisons to Pink

Die hard “PINK” fan – follow me on Facebook & Twitter  for all your Miley Cyrus updates

By: Dorothy Frazier 

What’s the old adage? Imitation is the greatest form of flattery? Well former Hanna Montana star, Miley Cyrus definitely does not think so.

And just so you know….

That is lil miss Cyrus  in the pic below next to Pink— not two pics of PINK, one in her early twenties and the other age advanced to say about ….33 years old.

Not that you know both pics are… PINK cause I sure didn’t— but Miley seems to think that’s what we think. Does that make sense?

Ok, well it’s kind of weird, I know — but bare with me as I attempt to break this down!

The young starlet, who recently chopped off all her hair, looked pretty much identical to the older pop star…?

If we had to choose which were all things ‘fierce fierce’ from flicks below, we’d have to go for Pink , because her hair well…it’s a little more mature – to say the least.

The pop starlet took to Twitter after the MTV Video Music Awards to sound off on people noting that Miley and Pink had almost the exact same spiky blond Mohawk.

Lady Gaga, who knows a little something about copying an older singer’s style, tweeted her support for the country/pop singer: “@mileycyrus u out-dressed+styled everyone last night. If anyone gives you s**t about that haircut pay no mind. u look like Brigitte Nielson.” But she alsotweeted: some accessory advice: “although I did not think you needed those earrings. SHOW THAT FAB NECK.”

And Miley complained about the attention the matching hairstyles got by tweeting: ”Woah 2 girls have blonde short hair! The whole world should go in to panic mode. Redickkkk”

So, who rocked the Mohawk harder tonight? Sound off in the comments!

Fans React to Frank Ocean Performance of ‘Thinkin Bout You’ At VMAs

The internet is a Buzz today about singer Frank Ocean’s performance at the VMA’s last night. Ocean pulled off a ‘slam damn thank you ma’am’ — so to speak…with the execution of it all. The award winning artist  appeared seemingly lost in thought as he delivered “Thinkin’ Bout You,” a stream-of-consciousness confession from his new album “Channel Orange.”

Lady Gaga tweeted, “Watch frank ocean steal this whole show. I’m dead.” Fans seemed to share similar sentiments:

@ZachWeaver34  Frank Ocean is sooooo smoooooth.

?@MichaelBartko Frank ocean is one of the most talented artist out right now. No doubt.

@stfuloco  Frank Ocean is the best ocean. Sorry Pacific, Indian, and Atlantic….

@saul_v10 Frank Ocean had the best performance. #myopinion

?@KidFury Maxwell said Frank Ocean “slayed it” tonight.

Ocean’s first full-length studio album, Channel Orange, was set to be released July 17, and a letter in which he declared his first love, for another man, was initially meant to be a part of the album’s liner notes. But following an early listening party, BBC Radio 1Xtra personality Max pointed out that the lyrics referred to “he” and “him” instead of “she” and “her,” which she took to be an indication that Ocean is gay or bisexual. Ocean took matters into his own hands, and on Independence Day he posted that letter on his Tumblr for the entire world to see.

My hope is that the babies born these days will inherit less of the bullshit than we did. anyhow, what I’m about to post is for anyone who cares to read. It was intended to fill the thank you’s section in my album credits, but with all the rumors going around…I figured it’d be good to clarify…

His letter went viral and traveled worldwide in a matter of moments. Suddenly, everyone knew his name.

4 summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide. Most of the day I’d see him, and his smile. I’d hear his conversation and his silence…until it was time to sleep. Sleep I would often share with him. By the time I realized I was in love, it was malignant. It was hopeless…. It was my first love, it changed my life.

What are your thoughts on Frank Ocean’s performance last night? Leave comments below.

Kevin Hart to host MTV Video Music Awards

The comedian stars alongside Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in a video posted Wednesday on MTV’s website. Hart tells the pair he’s hosting the VMA show and that paparazzi are trying to get a look at “the new ‘it’ couple,” even though they would actually be a trio. He says, “I’m talking about Kev-Ye-Kim.”

The video shows a casually clad Kardashian and West, who is up for two Video Music Awards, lounging on the end of a bed. When West asks what Hart means, he offers other possible couple nicknames, including “Ye-Kev-Kim” and “Ye-Kim-Kev.”

Hart has appeared in the films “Think Like a Man” and “The Five-Year Engagement.” In 2011, he hosted the BET Awards.

The MTV Video Music Awards will be presented Sept. 6 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Rihanna and Drake lead the pack of nominees with five nods each. Last year’s big winner Katy Perry isn’t far behind, with four nominations.
